Funkommunity are an Electronica/Soul outfit lead by multi-instrumentalist/producer Isaac Aesili and Singer Rachel Fraser. Hailing from New Zealand, Funkommunity are a relatively new band who recently wrapped up their first international tour following the release of their debut album entitled ” Chequered Thoughts”.
The opening track ” Pass it on” starts with a solid drum intro reminiscent of Classic Motown then continues to surprise and impress with the introduction of the refreshingly soulful vocals. You might also want to turn on a bass sub because the low bass will make this song that much groovy-er, if at all possible.
Other outstanding tracks, “Dandilion” and “The Light” are showcases of the bands electronic side. “Chequered Thoughts” is one of those albums that rewards when listened to through good headphones, so as to properly feel the groove of the music.
This video is the first song on the album called “Pass It On”. Listen carefully to each part adding to the song. The sweeping of the pads panning from one ear to the other, the contoured vibrations of the bass, the subtleties in the high hat of the drums, the floating interjections from the horns, the steady rhythmic “jank”-ing of the guitar and of course the controlled melody of the vocals.
The album “Chequered Thoughts” is available for purchase as MP3, CD and Vinyl from :
