'The Funk Sessions' second show was originally aired on Tuesday the 16th of March 2021, listen on the Mixcloud player below. Scientific Sound radio is an underground station for the Asian region and internationally.
Since 2019 the Funk Sessions crew have been igniting dance floors across Saigon with their unique party vibes dedicated to all things funky. This DJ and party crew bring you the funkiest beats around, from funk classics & old-skool hip hop, to disco, party breaks, ghetto funk and more.
A group of international DJs from Australia and UK, based primarily in Vietnam, on a mission to add a little spice to the dance music scene. With a vast back catalogue of experiences behind them, including club nights, free parties and festivals and having supported many heavyweights of the underground music world.
The style of music they play is heavily influenced by the pioneers of breakbeat. It’s particularly obvious in the Hip Hop, Funky Breaks and Ghetto Funk they play, but it's influence actually runs a lot deeper and to some extent can be heard throughout all of their mixes.
Funk Sessions have regular events in Ho Chi Minh City at Broma (not a bar), TNR (your favourite dive bar), Indika and Apt852. Other venues past and present include, Secret weekend, Tempo, Arcan, Haus, Banana Mama, Piu Piu, Sky 9, Rogue Saigon, Soma and Saigon Outcast.
This weeks mix is brought to you by Funk Sessions residents Ego Warrior and Robson Jr. Ego Warrior gives us a beautifully crafty mix of 70s funk with the addition of some contemporary takes on the genre. A mix that meanders through elements of psychedelia, rock n roll and future funk, which is thoughtful and purposeful on the journey it takes you. This is a beauty of a mix, which you don’t won’t to miss.
In the second part of the show Robson Jr. brings a beautiful blend of cracking remixes. Once again Funk Sessions Resident Robson Jr. does not disappoint. Subtly lifted classics, Booming ghetto funk, and bumping breaks, this has it all.
