Markey Funk


Audio Montage

Released: 15th January 2016 | 12 track soundtracks album

Only the unknown frightens men. But once a man has faced the unknown, that terror becomes the known.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

After 7 years of collaborations and numerous side projects, Markey Funk (Les Hippies, Mordy Laye and the Group Modular) is finally releasing his second solo album - Instinct. However, the new record is far from following the same samplecentric path, laid by its predecessor - the 2008's (forgot the word). Instinct explores the dark corners of human consciousness in order to understand the nature of one of the most primal emotions - fear. Inspired by aesthetic of the 1970's European crime/thriller film music, Markey created his own blend of cinematic grooves, edgy psychedelia and analogue electronics. With contributions from Gal Frenkel (vocals), Uri Mixmonster Wertheim (Kalbata & Mixmonster, tape-delay), Sagi Zax (Action! Attention!, drums), Emiko Kojima (flute), and Ran Nahimas (D.R.Y., theremin), Instinct is a colourful yet tense journey, balancing on a sharp edge between harmony and dissonance, groove and abstraction, order and chaos.

Highly recommended for fans of Ennio Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Goblin, David Axelrod, Mr Chop, Broadcast, The Kramford Look and The Heliocentrics.

"...if I didn't know better I'd swear that this was the densely orchestrated score to a lost Giallo horror flick. ...Listening to 'Instinct' made me want to watch that film."
Strictly Kev, DJ Food, Ninja Tune
"Very Italian, very authentic. I like it a lot."
Jonny Trunk, Trunk Records, The OST Show
"Mr Funk’s blend of cinematic grooves, spooked psychedelia and Gothic analogue electronics does exactly what he set out to do; alchemising sheer terror from music. This is seriously spooky stuff that Ghost Box fans will cherish."
Vic Templar, Shindig! Magazine
"This this is definitely the type of LP that future diggers will be on the hunt for."
Skeme Richards, Hot Peas & Butta, Rock Steady Crew
"Giallo soundtrack fanatics take note...this record comes HIGHLY recommended."
DJ Alfonso, Rendezvous, LA
