An in-store with FunkinEven (Wild Oats | Apron Records | Eglo Records, London)
Halcyon is very excited to announce that FunkinEven will be playing in our shop this Monday (August 27th) between 7-9pm. Nurse your Monday hangover, which will be due to seeing him spin the evening before at Mister Sunday no doubt, with his eclectic, soulful blend of music. If youâ€™ve not heard his latest single, a collaboration with the exceptionally talented Fatima, we urge you to check out â€œPhone Lineâ€ as well. See you here at the shop for some BYOB Monday night dancing and recordsâ€¦ donâ€™t sleep on this rare chance to see one of Londonâ€™s more interesting and innovative musical talents!
West London born and raised but currently residing on the East Side of the city, Stevie J aka Funkineven is no stranger to night life and sound system culture. From his Grenadian roots, through to the surroundings of Nottinghill Hill carnival and his families own parties, the speaker stacks and record crates were never too far awayâ€¦ and they havenâ€™t left his sights. Influenced by the music of Prince, Leaders Of The New School, The Neptunes, Larry Heard, Kraftwerk, George Clinton and Masters At Work to name but a few, itâ€™s clear to see why FunkinEvenâ€™s music displays such a colourful and diverse palette of sounds, styles and tempi. Electronically fusing House, Boogie, Soul, Hip Hop and Techno, Stevie has collaborated one of this summerâ€™s hits on Eglo, just released an explosive 12â€³ collaborating with Kyle Hall on Hallâ€™s Wild Oats label as FunkinEvil, and hosts an excellent monthly show on NTS.
