Welcoming our 2nd 7-inch '45 record on Colemine Records — we're throwing a proper party for it's release with very special guest singers (TBA) — featuring Buscrates (Pittsburgh)!
✦The Gripsweats✦ (Colemine Records)
“Coming right out of the late 60’s with a monster funk sound, this Nashville, TN group has got the sound to make any funk lover’s ears and eyes perk up from the first needle drop. This is deep funk y’all, and when we say deep, we mean deep. Heavy drums, wah wah guitars, and a horn section that can blow — The Gripsweats are keeping the tradition of playing this essential brand of funk: dirty, raw, and not giving zero effs about what’s popular.” — DJ Prestige / Flea Market Funk
◙◘❐Buscrates❐◘◙ (Bastard Jazz Recordings / Omega Supreme Records)
Smooth synth chords that peek over basslines like the sun peeks over the horizon to spread the light; Drawing us in with glow of the Rhodes pianos and bubbling Moog basslines, Buscrates speaks the language of the mothership and there is no doubt. Whether it's taking us for a ride on the edge of the atmosphere or if he's landing on the dancefloor, Buscrates has a natural force with his funk that baptizes! Some serious synths with thick bass filled production — signature chops, keyboard wizardry, and one of our favorites in the funk business.
