Brooklyn Funk Essentials – “Ain’t Nothing”

In 1993 a new collective presented an unique brand of eclectic funk to worldwide audiences. Made up from musicians, singers and poets from around the globe, they stood out, because of their artful mix of styles such as soul, jazz, latin and house. These Grammy nominated funkateers have released five albums and have been fronted by Alison Limerick and Desmond Foster since 2017.

The sophomore teaser of their forthcoming new album, scheduled for release on August 23, douses their one-of-a-kind funkalicious stylings into some groovy vibes and infuses it with some suave soul. The mellow bounce of the beat emphasizes the sweltering synths and with a catchy chorus adding some delicious horns, this delectable funky affair calls for us to unite on the path to a better future.
