    FUNK 7" - MOHAWKESTRA - HOUSE OF THE RISING FUNK / GUMBO

    Although not a Hip Hop release I know a lot of us have broad tastes in music so if you also dig Funk you may be interested to know that pre-orders have just opened on the Reed Records site for the new Mohawkestra 7".

    Nice heavy 60's sounding brand new Funk recorded on all vintage gear to capture the requisite amount of grit that Funk records need. One for the break heads and DJ's this time as the Mohawkestra arrangement of House of the Rising Sun by The Animals features a nice open 8 bar drum break in the middle. They also transposed the groove to work on 4/4 instead of the 6/8 time of the original and changed 'Sun' to 'Funk' in the title as a little nod to the Afrique song. The B-side 'Gumbo' is a Mohawkestra original in the vein of a Louisiana Funk thing.

    Audio of the A side and ordering here:-

    Cost is 6.99 plus shipping and comes in Reed Records company sleeve keeping the same colours as the previous 3 Mohawkestra releases in the generic company design by Mr Krum.

    Release date is scheduled for March 16th but the records are due the week before and the sleeves are already printed so should ship early.

    Thanks in advance from Mohawkestra and Reed Records.

    Forgot to mention that all pre-order customer names go into a hat to win a test pressing signed by Mohawkestra.

    Thanks to all that purchased so far.
