EFUNK: The Album


The wisdom of Soul Clap has been beamed down to Earth in the form of EFUNK -- Everybody's Freaky Under Nature's Kingdom -- their debut album on Wolf + Lamb. Soul Clap delivers a galactic renaissance to fill our ears with interplanetary consciousness and emancipate our booties from the androids of dancefloor repetition. The days of EFUNK are upon us, restoring dopeness in the universe, as we groove on and move on together in intergalactic harmony! Limited to 13 songs over 45 minutes to fit on one 12" record and operate the mothership control-panel. The album also tells the story of Soul Clap's journey so far in a concise musical statement that could only be accomplished with the skills of master DJs. Along their path returning from the outer-reaches to save dance music from the eclipse of darkness, Soul Clap's pop sensibility captured the hearts of many earthlings. Help in the transformational process is obliged from their close-knit Wolf + Lamb family, who have shared and shaped their journey into the consciousness of the terrestrial. The young Jules Born of the Voices Of Black duo injects his raw-funk stamp into "Let's Groove On." Baby Prince aka Gadi Mizrahi of Wolf + Lamb features alongside other members of the family on "The Clapping Song." Charlie also plays kazoo, guitar and keys. Greg Paulus of No Regular Play beams in his magnificent trumpet on the serene closing broadcast, "Islands In Space" as Charlie sings in cosmic frequencies and Eli's father Gary Goldstein strums the bass. Goddess deities lead EFUNK's transmission further into the light. Franceska unveils her Janet Jackson-like powers on "Take It Slow" and Mel Blatt of All Saints fame wrote and sang the lyrics for "Ecstasy." Hijacked by a UFO to study the effects of the spotlight over a decade, Mel recently returned with divine powers. Her lucid voice returns for "Need Your Lovin'." Originally an edit Charlie created from an intense love for the original, when they shared it with Mel over stargazing, her mutual feelings led to them recording her vocal and replaying all the parts, becoming a reinvigorated fresh interpretation of the rave classic. Further into un-charted territory, "The Alezby Inn," a cover of legendary West Coast electro don Egyptian Lover, features Genevan Heathen, who shares a Boston connection and unleashes an EFUNK masterpiece, a mischievous jam that speaks its own truth. "Let It Go" was resurrected from an early demo Roldy Cezaire gave to the guys during their legendary mid-week parties in Boston. Lazarus Man's epic "When The Soul Claps" is a staple a cappella in Soul Clap performances, and the EFUNK formula for it beams a powerful skyrocket to the stars. Soul Clap's training goes beyond history lessons to master all the elements of the DJ: knowledge, mixing, programming, performance and experience. As true conquerors, their EFUNK mission shares timeless frequencies, bringing new levels of consciousness through time and space to be shared for many moons to come.
