Do (Mr. Confuse Remix)
German DJ and Producer Mr Confuse is one of the main acts in the more soulful part of the nufunk scene, has taken a more laid-back approach to the “Do” track – but nevertheless manage to create quite a musical pearl of a remix. So smooth and groovy you can’t help but feeling good when you listen to it.
Over the last 18 years, the eight-piece collective GMF – Grand Mother’s Funck has built a reputation for party music on a highest level. GMF is generally considered the number one Swiss funk act. They have proved themselves popular among all age groups and throughout the world, with CD-releases in the U.S. and in Germany, steady airplay on the Bahamas and a fan-club in Japan.
On their new album and concert tour, GMF and their singer Rich Fonje are joined by Akil the MC. Rapper and lyricist Akil is best known as a founding member of the legendary HipHop crew Jurassic 5. A true Master of Rhythm from L.A. South Central meets the creators of „Le Funck Fédéral“… Coming from opposite corners of black music as well as the globe – their roots are the same! The collaboration between these two major players is a perfect match and the result an explosive mix of Funk, HipHop, R&B and Soul Music. Their album is a treat and their live show will blow your mind…
