The ‘Funk District’ is a producer from Mexico, currently based in Cancun, a project formed by Fernando Mendoza in early 2015 with the main purpose of bringing a fresh sound to traditional Funk, Soul, Disco and African music using organic sounds and modern production techniques.
Celebrating Fernando’s recent success with a 1000 followers on his Spotify account which we helped him edit earlier in the year, we feature a track on our new Jazz playlist, it’s from his new EP ‘Afrodiskosis’ and the track ‘Tin Lon Non’ blending traditional African, modern House and Afrobeat rhythms into a dancefloor smash. Also added to our Soulful playlist is ‘Let Yourself Be Free’ from the ‘Who Hoo’ EP, a slice of funky sampled filled Electro Funk.
We also shared the track "Spaceship" from the Ep ‘Forbidden Planet’ back in January, capturing the essence of 70’s disco-funk and transforms it into a Nu disco soundscape taking you on a funky cosmic journey.
Head over to Fernando’s soundcloud page where you find some top notch edits of artists like Cameo, Stevie Wonder and Isaac Hayes and previews of his many Nu Disco releases on labels like Hotbox Boogie, Whiskey Pickle and About Disco.
