ESL Music's newest signing, The Funk Ark is a world funk ensemble based in Washington DC. The band's debut album was released on ESL Music on June 14, 2011.
Recorded at ESL Music Studios in Washington DC by Thievery Corporation’s sound engineer Christopher “Stone” Garret, From the Rooftops is the funk-tastic debut album from ESL Music’s newest artist signing The Funk Ark! Fronted by keyboard savant and long-time ESL Music session player Will Rast, the album delivers a healthy dose of vintage afrobeat, Latin, and funk stylings. Recalling the best of Afrika 70, the JB’s and the Fania Allstars all at once, The Funk Ark is your new one-stop shop for booty-shaking vintage grooves. Shout it from the rooftops!
If ever a band could boast having a complex genealogical tree, that band is Brownout. The eight-piece, Latin funk ensemble based in Austin, Texas, is both offspring and germinating seed to Grammy-Winner Grupo Fantasma.
Brownout may well be Grupo Fantasma's psychedelic Latin funk little brother, an offshoot of the collective that regularly backs Prince, its latest incarnation, or even its alter ego. What they are not is the sprawling conjunto's side project. Brownout has taken Grupo Fantasma's funk roots and blown them up. In the process they've taken on a life and developed a unique sound all their own. Aguilas and Cobras, the group's new album on Six Degrees Records (9/15/09), stands as testament to their one of a kind evolution.
