Funky Splash / O Caminho Do Bem

A 2 track funk single (5m 19s) — released September 28th 2018 on Rocafort Records

This Geneva-based band have finely honed their instrumental "post-internet groove", creating the perfect blend of old-school funk, afro-beat, 70s soundtrack fusion, always adding a pinch of futuristic production and a touch of modernity aimed at bring the groove genre to new generations.

Side A, 'Funky Splash' is an original composition, understated in its groove but with the punch and crunch falling in all the right places, hence can be enjoyed either stewing in the background or as a dancefloor filler. The wah-wah and off-the-wall synths are both used to great rhythmic effect.

Side B, 'O Caminho do Bem', is a cover version of the Brazilian musical heavyweight Tim Maia. Always hard to revisit a classic, but L'Eclair's tight musicianship, perfect pacing and futuristic twist all add an extra layer of groove onto the mellow funk of the original.

Do not miss this band if they happen to be playing live at your local town hall. Currently doing the rounds of all the best festivals, L'Eclair doesn't mean 'lightning' for nothing. With band members' names ranging from 'Space Krum, Bootsy Cobra and Colonel G-Love' these Swissies take their groove seriously and are a sure-fire hit both live and on vinyl.

Another slice of immaculate sounds for the ears and feet from Switzerland's finest export, Rocafort Records.
