Genre: Funk / Nu Funk / Downtempo
Region: Adriatic coast, Croatia
Artists’ Website: Funky Destination
Label: Timewarp Music
Release Date: October 7, 2013
Croatian DJ/producer Vladimir Sivc, aka Funky Destination, is a veteran in Timewarp Music’s roster with more than a handful of releases since 2009. As expected from the cover and the title he delivers no-frills funk which sounds incredibly fresh and organic.
The opener and title track is a real funk epic with extended polyrhythmic work, organ, orchestral layers, horns and uplifting vocals. With the aura of a classic, the tune is crafted in a way that can catch everybody’s attention, infiltrate in DJ sets and playlists and keep partygoers swinging.
“Vintage Satisfaction” slows down the tempo a bit but not the vibes. It utilizes the same materials, radiating the same classic feel and inflicting an effect of similar proportions to the listener. “United Colours Of The Sun” is a stunning closer entering more explorative psychedelic jazz realms with some melting drops of tropical romanticism. Altogether a tight release that can lift us to the ultimate Funky Destination.
