5 Funk Music Bands That You Must Listen To Today!

As you know, Funk is a music genre that originated in the mid- to late 1960s when African American musicians created a rhythmic, danceable new form of music through a mixture of soul music, jazz, and rhythm and blues.

Today, we want to share with you a 5 amazing funk music bands that you must listen to! These bands share their music using the Creative Commons license.

  1. Moe Shop

    me-shop
    Moe Shop gives a certain spin to the Future Funk world. It has a very energetic vibe, leaning towards the Future side of the genre. It almost has sounds similar to J-Pop, but those kicks and snares are still laid over funk samples that will make you dance like you’re in an animated music video.

  2. Lawrence

    lawrence-breakfast-2
    Lawrence is an eight-piece soul powerhouse from New York City. Led by the talented sibling vocal duo Clyde Lawrence and Gracie Lawrence, produced by Grammy Award winning producer Eric Kranso, and influenced by old school and new school giants, Lawrence presents a beautiful LP of dynamic vocals, powerful horns, and soulful grooves. As their first and maybe most important album, they’ve rightfully called this releaseBreakfast. We’ve found a sampling of some of the delicious tracks on the album.

  3. Shoos Off

    shoosoff
    LA-based group Shoos Off injects some funk into your day with Most Times EP. The album features five tracks that oozes with musings of pop, hip hop and r&b as well as a dash of eccentricity by using a wide range of instruments with a sense of control.

  4. Saint Pepsi


    Ride and curl along waves of luscious ecojam funk in Hit Vibes by Saint Pepsi aka Ryan DeRobertis. Teeming with thirteen tracks, this album will get you moving through it’s creative experimentation on fresh hip grooves.

  5. Bonnie Bordeaux

    bonnie bordeaux
    Taking a share of the delicious musical pie is newcomer Bonnie Bordeaux (even her name sounds super gorgeous), who’s bringing her own iteration of funk by tastefully concocting it with 40’s style of jazz and soul. The result? A stunning 7-track debut masterpiece that we’ll simply refer to as The Damsel Diaries.

Just Matthew, Just Rap!

Download Torrent!

We are proud to present our new FrostWire promoted artist! He’s from Los Angeles and he is ready to bring us good rap! Matthew released with us his EP named Connery: an incredible mix of emotions and sounds.

2016-03-21 14.35.49

Connery sees Just Matthew creating music as a vessel for honest introspection and sharing his personal experiences. The record’s second track, Prototype, presents him telling us of his struggles and dreams as an upcoming musician, while Understand It is a vocalization of the various emotions floating around in Matthew’s head now that he’s in the “rap game”. The EP also gives us an equal amount of Matthew’s flirtatious side. He appears to be at his sweetest on Forget, where he urges a woman to get past her ungrateful boyfriend and come to him instead, who would treat her right.

    soulja_boy
    The album utilizes the rapper/producer’s tried-and-tested formula of hip hop + RnB that has brought success, not only to Soulja Boy, but to a lot of hip hop artists in the past. What makes this formula work is the perfect match between the evocative sensuality of RnB tunes and famous hip hop themes.

  8. Noosa: Wonderland

    wonderland
    Welcome the new year with ambient electropop tunes from New York-based songstress Noosa. In her latest album released on 20 May 2014 titled Wonderland, Noosa treats old fans and casual listeners with nine tracks of impeccable tunes.

  9. HolySexyBastards

    holeysexybastards
    Jack White brought back the old and dusty blues to the mainstream music charts. He made it cool again, he turned on a fuzz pedal and gave us riffs that we are still singing nowadays.
    He evolved the dusty blues into something that teenagers, hipsters, selected ears, could listen and enjoy. Countless bands, very successful and famous ones (insert The Black Keys here) and not that famous ones all over the world, were influenced by him. HolySexyBastards is one of them. This is a Venezuela born, Canada based band and they can hit you like a 350 truck going at full speed.

Anna Jordan

Anna Jordan

  1. Nude: Naturalness EP
    Naturalness is a short but sweet affair that sounds eerily like the ironically-named band Kill Paris‘ latest release.
  2. O: Be Sides – Mostla Tape
    One of underground label La Souterraine‘s acts, O (short for Olivier Marguerit), just released a full-length B-sides collection, “Be Sides – Mostla Tape,” which round out some of the most interesting arrangements and production for a French neophyte [at least for me].
  3. Anna Jordan: Dust EP
    Anna Jordan‘s debut EP, Dust, is like a shiny new toy that fills that craving for unique flavor. An alum from Newpark Music School, Anna is no stranger to the literature of sound. She studied jazz piano under the tutelage of Phil Ware, and has taken great inspiration from the aesthetics of great pianists such as Sonny Clark and Thelonius Monk.
