This October 1st Roel Funcken will unleash his sophomore work Skinetic Culpture, an assault on sensible audio that’s aimed at critical brainstems the world over from the Funcken Empire of Neurotonics. SC contains four fierce, unhinged and heavy tracks, building on the unique music formulated in Roel’s full length album Vade, which released on Ad Noiseam Records early 2010 to much acclaim.
After receiving new hardware for the lab from sources overseas, Roel’s process during the production of this ep became infused with exponential layers of new experimentation, adding fresh stems of engineering and rhythmical identity to the previous foundations he’s known for. From the breaks leaning opener Skinetic Culpture and right through to the 20-ton-step end game Spead Dace, this 4 track ep is like nothing he’s ever released before, in either his own output or the massive archive of Funckarma related material.
While Skinetic could be defined – like previous Funck projects - as bridging the evolving world of the dance floor with the poorly tagged IDM audio landscape, there is nothing holding this ep in a genre lockup. Keeping it fresh and totally unique - while pushing the dubstep, breaks, 4x4 and jazz formulas into the next level of what Funcken fans around the world have come to crave - Roel is very proud to present this new audio to ears that know what to listen for.
Featuring cover artwork by Timothée Mathelin aka shift., look for Skinetic Culpture at the new Funckarma store and all other digital outlets, from Juno to iTunes, on October 1st 2011.
