You Float My Boat - Taken from the Kingbastard EP 'Brainfunk'.

Brainfunk draws its sound & inspiration from Kingbastard fusing his unique brand of Electronica with the psychedelic, colourful stylings of smoky 70's funk records and their hypnotic, kaleidoscopic sounds. However, don't be fooled into thinking this is a sample-driven work. The riffs & hooks found adorning these tracks are originals, written, performed & recorded by the bastard himself.

Brainfunk showcases Kingbastard's penchant for melody, riffs & rhythm. The six tracks are an eclectic, funkadelic brew of multi-instrumental, home-grown sounds & arrangements.

Brainstorm kicks off proceedings with a brooding atmospheric intro and evolving, intertwining melodies, underscored with progressive percussion; the track crescendos with aplomb & is rounded off with an irresistibly catchy funk-glitch coda.
I Caught the Sun is sun-drenched lo-fi that shimmers & sparkles, glitches & glistens, before KB's playful side is fully exposed on the infectious & strangely informativeKingBee's Waggle Dance.
The Sunshine Skank fuses funk & glitch & is best served hot on a dub-plate, whilst Out To Lunch kicks-back, takes a break & mellows the mood for the final track, the superb You Float My Boat, a slice of laid-back, smoky funk, with Kingbastard's deft production techniques, musicianship & vocal skills on show.

Brainfunk continues Kingbastard's stellar & diverse output on Herb Recordings & once again shows he transcends classification, refusing to be pigeonholed.
