Thank you, Tim Jonathan Kleinecke, for the fantastic review! #beatfunktion

Original German wording: nordische-musik.de/5630-Beat-Funktion.html

"Roots
(2019, Do Music Records DMRCD 067)

Wow, they've got what it takes! It's seldom grooved like this, they almost overtake Nils Landgren's Funk Unit! And in this country they are still buzzing under the radar, but that has to change as soon as possible. With "ROOTS", Beat Funktion present their seventh album, the band exists since 2007 and has already had great success in the past: Rank 1 of the Jazz-Charts in the USA and rank 2 in Canada, also in Japan the Swedes have some fans.

And that with a mega gripping melange of disco, soul, funk and jazz: It groovs hellishly, whereby you often imagine yourself in the 70s - the decade of disco sound. In addition, crisp funk elements by Fender Rhodes, gripping solos by the brass players and the grandiose guitarist Johan Öijen, known from the fusion band Subfive. Beat Funktion pack catchy melodies into almost continuously danceable garments - but that doesn't seem like a plagiarism from the 70s, but absolutely fresh. Bandleader is keyboarder Daniel Lantz, he writes almost all songs. Karl Olandersson (trumpet), Olle Thunström (tenor saxophone), Pal Johnsson (e-bass) and Jon Eriksson (drums) are joined by percussionist Ola Bothzén as guests, which further loosens up the sound. "ROOTS" takes us all to the dance floor and makes us happy! (tjk)"
