The CSC Funk band knows how to make funky music. Their last record, Funkincense raised eyebrows the world over as this all star band, featuring members of GWAR, The USA Is a Monster and Talibam!, got down and dirty on the funk side. Their latest effort, Above The Starrs is the follow up on Electric Cowbell and looks to be one of their most enthusiastic projects of all time. An all instrumental tribute record to one of the greatest hip hop acts of all time, Gangstarr, it is sure to quench the thirst of music lovers and hip hop heads alike. Born out a live collabo with Masta Ace at a Guru tribute concert, this 10 piece clique knows your steez and has put in hundreds of hours in the studio to make this very special record happen. RIYL El Michels Affair, The Roots, and other live bands that get down with live hip hop instrumentation. The first track they have given us is “Above The Starrs”, a great interpretation of “Above The Clouds”, with the John Dankworth sample getting reinterpreted just right. This is a really unique project, and we are looking forward to its release. Electric Cowbell always have something cooking up lovely in their kitchen, and this may be one of the top releases of 2017.

The digital release is available March 31st and the 12″ vinyl will be available on April 22nd.
