Milan-based producer Fred Simon brings you two delicious slices of modern funk in collaboration with two of the most heralded vocalists in the scene. MoFunk Records artist Moniquea lends her voice to "Don't Go Under" while Amalia, known for her releases on Tokyo Dawn & Cherries Records, gets down on "Island Of Magic." In hearing both tracks, you can discern the formula - Clever chord progressions with a jazzy flair that come across as something of a nod to neosoul, combined with the rhythm of 1980's boogie funk, thus interpreted with analog synths and drum machines in place of a live band. You can hear the remarkable range that the style carries; on "Don't Go Under," the pace is on the urgent side, with Moniquea switching effortlessly between singing and rapping, advising you to push forward no matter what. "Island Of Magic" takes the same sound, puts a citrus-colored cocktail into your hand and sets you down on a palm-lined beach at sunset. Amalia takes the emotion of love and presents it as a physical location. In much the same way, we are bringing these two amazing tracks to physical form with a limited 7", on bone-colored vinyl, only 150 pieces pressed!
