Funk Sessions DJ collective announce playlist for sixth show.

27 Apr

'The Funk Sessions' have submitted their playlists for their sixth show featuring Yushka, Robson Jr, and My Catt. 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 Ho Chi Minh City 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.

Funk Dem Beats is a regular club event in Ho Chi Minh City, based mainly at the infamous TNR (everyones favourite dive bar). The night incorporates live musicians and DJs in to a rapidly evolving jam session, that packs a multitude of genres in to one action packed night. This week we have a selection of Funk Soul, Hip hop and breaks, put together by a trio of Funk Dem Beats DJs.  

First up is Funk Sessions regular Yushka, which takes you through trippy soulful beats, Rock and Soul, Funk and funky breaks.  A slow build from smooth soulful bliss, to ghetto funk bangers.  

The second part of the show is another awesome mix from another Funk Sessions regular Robson Jr.  Tropical beats with a little bit of swing.  This will get you moving and grooving.  Another great selection from across tropical and swing infused styles. 

Finally a Mini Mix from My Catt continues the tropical swing vibes and transforms in to a true mash up, with everything from Balkan beats to breaks.  Watch this space for more from My Catt, who has just burst on to the scene with his selection of Tropical beats and world flavours.

Listen live this Tuesday the 27th of April 2021 8 PM to 10 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeating Saturday 8 AM to 10 AM (ICT).
