Phuture T - Persuassive Funk [2x12" Coloured Vinyl LP, including print & stickers & die cut gatefold sleeve]
Release Date: 9th October 2020
We're proud to unveil a brand-new album by Phuture T, entitled 'Persuasive Funk', out 24th July on Inperspective Records.
An eleven-track release, Persuasive Funk kicks off with the title track, a soulful, jazz-inflicted D&B collaboration with legendary D&B stalwart Jungle Drummer, melding electronic elements with organic instrumentation featuring Live Bass from rising UK star, Tom Mason, and capped off by invigorating vocals from Sofi Mari. This sets the tone for the rest of the LP, with ‘Voyager’, ‘Uisce Beatha Haze’ and ‘Roosje’ all following a similarly funk-laden formula. ‘El Ritmo Mundial’ and ‘Frenzy’ channel the spirit of free jazz into a melange of trumpets and high-energy drum patterns, before ‘Tumbleweed’, ‘3000’ and ‘Lord Apache’ provide a fittingly triumphant finale.
Phuture T, real name Tom van Zeytveld, has been an active member of the global D&B scene for over a decade, releasing music on labels such as Alphacut Records, Omni Music and Scientific Wax Digital. Persuasive Funk is his second release on Insperspective, following 2017 double-single ‘Fugitive Drummer’ / ‘Cold Sweat’.
Marking his first release of the new decade, Persuasive Funk is a superb collection of tracks that blur the lines between soul, jazz and D&B.
