Moniquea ‎– Blackwavefunk (June 2nd, 2017)

Moniquea has already established herself as one of the foremost female artists in the modern funk scene with her 2014 MoFunk Records debut album “Yes No Maybe”. With her follow-up, she continues exploring and expanding upon the boogie/modern soul sound of her debut, and at the same time, ventures bravely into a new sound inspired by the new wave and synth-pop sounds of the 80’s. Thus, the album title: Blackwavefunk. Executively produced by XL Middleton & Eddy Funkster, the album was mainly produced by the one and only XL Middleton with a little exception of one track “Knew It” which was produced by Turquoise Summers while other two tracks “Why Can’t You See” and “Check Your Sources” were co-produced Eddy Funkster and Moniquea respectively. By all means, this is a great modern funk album which is gonna turn classic after some time.

Today is the official release date so you may not hesitate & cop both Vinyl and/or CD @ MoFunk Bandcamp though we recommend to get both vinyl & CD versions as CD has the bonus track “Already Done That” which was B-Side track on “Checkin’ Out/Already Done That” Lathe Cut 7″.
