The Story

My next single was inspired by some funky music in a Rooftop bar in Lisbon, where I spent my easter vacation. Immediately after being back in my studio, I started recording and produced this new song called 'Rooftop Fun(k)' - move your body to the groove and enjoy!


Listen to it, enjoy and dance!

Funky music is a genre of popular music that originated in the mid-1960s and became widely popular in the 1970s. It is characterized by a strong, groovy bass line, syncopated rhythms, and soulful vocals. The term "funk" is thought to derive from the word "funky," which was used to describe a strong, pungent odor.


Funky music draws influences from a variety of musical styles, including soul, R&B, jazz, and African musical traditions. The genre is known for its emphasis on rhythm and groove, and for its use of musical improvisation and extended musical solos.


Some of the most famous and influential funk artists include James Brown, Parliament-Funkadelic, Sly and the Family Stone, and Earth, Wind & Fire. These musicians helped to define the sound of funk and continue to inspire musicians and fans today.


Whether you're a fan of classic funk or contemporary funk-influenced music, there's no denying that funk has left an indelible mark on the musical landscape and continues to be a beloved and influential genre.


Saying that the new song 'Rooftop Fun(k)' continues this kind of music genre in a modern and fresh way. The song contains all the well known elements of funky music like clavinet, groovy slap bass, tight brass sections among others. But it also surprises by other style elements from modern electronic music and a RAP-style vocal break.
