For the 3rd edition of our New Directions in Funk 7” series on Soul Clap Records we’re keeping it close to home with special versions of two of the funkiest cuts off the recent Soul Clap and Midnight Magic albums. The latest in the double artist, double a side, split 7" series follows up two funky slices of wax from Funkadelic & Soul Clap / Brian Ellis ft. Howard Johnson on volume 1 and Zopelar ft. Serge Erege / The Nephrok All-Stars on volume 2.
Volume 3 brings together two more stand-out cuts onto a collectible 45 perfect for funky DJ sets. First up is "Synthesizer Girlfriend” from last year’s self-titled Soul Clap Album. The song features Miami diva Ntem on vocals and Detroit talkbox maestro HazMat doing what he does best. On the flip Brooklyn based disco ensemble and Soul Clap Records regulars Midnight Magic keep the funk flowing on “Free From Your Spell” a standout mid-tempo jam from their recent LP.
