UK multi-instrumentalist Ziggy Funk returns to BBE Music with his third release on the label, the Brondesbury Park EP.
Ziggy Funk is no new name to BBE, having previously issued the EP ‘Red Light Syndrome’ in 2016 and full-length album ‘Boxer’s Fracture’ in 2017 on the label. Now he returns with Afro/Latin inspired two tracker, Brondesbury Park.
Driven by infectious horns and showcasing Ziggy’s love for percussion, title track ‘Brondesbury Park’ is an uptempo dance song with roots in Afrobeat, but with a nod to South American carnival culture and touches of jazz.
Second song ‘Ice Cream’ is more restrained in its approach, but still just as irresistable. The electric guitar takes the lead and hits with eerie overtones as well as elements of funk and blues, over a languid Afrobeat horn and drum workout.
The Brondesbury Park EP is filled with vibrant colours, some immediate and some only revealing themselves with repeated listening. Two tracks with different pulsating drives, both with pure groove at their foundations.
