Funkadelic have influenced an endless stream of musicians, with Underground Resistance the latest act to show their appreaction for George Clinton’s pioneering funk band.
As part of a new remix compilation album, UR have remixed ‘Music For My Mother’ which has been described in the accompanying press release as sounding like “a hundred years of great American music”. The remix comes as part of a heavyweight release, ‘Funkadelic - Reworked by Detroiters’ that also features remixes from Moodymann, Marcellus Pittman, Andres, Anthony ’Shake’ Shakir and more.
Interestingly, Underground Resistance leader Mike Banks played guitar for the band’s sister act, P-Funk, in the ‘80s.
The much-anticipated compilation is out 27th October via Ace Records. For further information, be sure to check the Ace Records website here.
Underground Resistance released their back catalogue digitally at the start of this year, which you can read about here.
