Guilty indeed. Been sleeping way too hard on East Liberty Quarters for real. In case you’re wondering, the trio hailing from Pittsburgh consists of Nice Rec, Grand Ear and the homie Buscrates 16-Bit Ensemble. So I was kinda late discovering their “East Liberty Quarters” EP last month, which is straight funk by the way! You might remember “Lucky Charm” which I featured in “The Future of Funk 2”. Wonderful Modern Funk with a dash of Electro Funk and Hip Hop. Tight drums, great synth work and some funky ass grooves is what you can expect to hear. I also almost missed out on a 7″ record they released last month containing two brand new jams entitled “Holiday” and “Streetlights”. Make sure you pick up the vinyl or digital copy over at their Bandcamp page or try over at Rush Hour.
