Funk is always a genre that is referenced, sampled or leaned upon in modern music. However it is very rare for new funk tracks to be released. So its great to introduce you to Alissia Benveniste aka Alissia. The Geneva born singer/songwriter now hailing from New York releases her funk laden EP Back to the Funkture.
Alissia backed by her great band the Funketeers provide a great modern twist on funk. With obvious influences from the likes of Parliament and Sly and the Family Stone this six track EP is a must for funk fans and those open to new music. The great female vocals, proper funk beats and space-age synths make for a great series of tracks. Have a listen, you know you want to.
