'The Funk Sessions' have submitted their playlists for their eighth show featuring Yushka and My Catt. Scientific Sound radio is an underground electronic music 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 the UK, based primarily in Vietnam, are 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 its 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 (everyone's favourite dive bar). The night incorporates live musicians and DJs into a rapidly evolving jam session, that packs a multitude of genres into one action-packed night.
This week we have a multi-genre selection put together by a duo of Funk Dem Beats DJs.
With this, truly multi-genre mash-up My Catt strikes again with possibly more genres than he has ever previously put in a mix. There might actually be more genres than tunes in there. From laid back beats to dance floor bangers, you will be tapping your feet one minute and stomping around your room the next.
Yushka lays down a mix of some of the best hip hop and ghetto funk this week, with a heavy dose of Chinese Man Records productions. A great blend of banging beats and incredible licks.
Listen live this Tuesday the 18th of May 2021 from 8 PM to 10 PM Indochina Time (ICT) and repeat Saturday from 8 AM to 10 AM (ICT).
