One of London's most loved iconic soulful dance imprints, Chillifunk Records, is celebrating 25yrs this year! Original Chillifunk boss Lofty has joined forces with fellow London based producer, Tom Davidson (Casa Devi), to bring back the quality soulful sound the Chillifunk brand is famous for with a plethora of new releases lined up and as well as making most of the label's long lost back catalogue available online.
Chillifunk Records first launched in 1996 and was run by infamous London DJ/Producers Lofty and Dr Bob Jones. As well as their own output as East West Connection among other solo projects and collaborations, Lofty and Bob released greatly acclaimed singles and albums from heavyweight musicians such as Snowboy & the Latin Section, Nathan Haines, Vanessa Freeman, T.Kolai, Verna Francis, restless soul, Sandy Mill, NoTenshun and so many more.
"Chillifunk is back, and we're going to be celebrating 25 years of soulful music for funky people. With some familiar faces and new talent, we are looking forward to exciting times." - Lofty
Hailing the start of this exciting celebratory year for the label is a brand new track from NZ singer songwriter, Sandy Mill, who has featured on numerous Chillifunk releases. This alternative funky bossa groover, encompasses acoustic and synth based flavours to create an altogether unique backing for Sandys thought provoking lyrics and unmistakable vocal performance. With a remix from L+T Project (aka Lofty & Tom), who deliver a striking genre bending dirty house groover featuring acoustic and electronic flavours.
