about

Prolific brothers Don and Roel Funcken record under several monikers including Shadow Huntaz, Cane, Quench and probably their best known, Funckarma. "Refurbished One" is a collection of mostly rare and unreleased remixes the Funcken brothers have been commissioned to do for other artists. Amongst the list are Speedy J, Plaid, Funkstorung, Mr Projectile, Duuster, Blamstrain and a series of other more obscure artists. Although each remix is for very different artists they all bear the undeniable hallmarks of the Funckarma sound; a spacious dub infected digital sound that is experimental yet precise and accomplished. From the abstract horns and upright bass of hip-hop tune "Fat Camp Feva" by Funkstorung to the bubbling digital chatter and soaring swathes of aural texture of "Duuster & Donker" by Duuster, the Funcken brothers' consistency is present throughout. Elsewhere amongst the 14 remixes on the album are a swirling atmospheric rework of Speedy J's "Hayfever", a jittery abstract reinterpretation of "Alive In Arms" by Blamstrain and strange yet serene glitchy take on Mr Projectile's "Love Here". Rounding things off is a wonderfully chilled out melodic remix of Plaid's "Cold".

Roel Funcken Amsterdam, Netherlands

It's always a pleasure to taste the latest treat from this aural engineer, and find the latest gem in his never-ending arsenal of sound. ... more
