about

This is just one of the side-projects of The Souljazz Orchestra's extraordinary drummer, Philippe Lafreniere. The man, astonishing on stage with his unique combination of power and groovyness, sometimes recalls of John Bonham, Clyde Stubblefield and Tony Allen at the same time!! But with The Easy LO-Fi… Phil Motion is on guitar! Their first single, released on his newly-launched Up & Up Music/Supafunk Records label, is available on a limited 7 inch and we can't advise old-school funk lovers to get it asap. Phil submitted the b-side, 'Dangerous World', for this Paris DJs compilation and we didn't hesitate any second to select this explosive instrumental with a dark tropical vibe.

About Phil Motion & The Easy LO-Fi :
Phil Motion & The Easy LO-Fi cuts its teeth on the best rare funk & soul pulling inspiration from one-offs and one-hit-wonders that never got their time in the spotlight. Reel-to-reel tape, hard-hittin’ horns, thumpy bass, gritty guitar, break-beat drummin’ and a voice that owns the mic, what more ya want? Bringing together members of Slim Moore and Souljazz Orchestra, this a real-deal seal of approval. An artist on the UP & UP MUSIC Label, Phil Motion spearheads the right-arm of this label’s funk outfit with its new exclusively old-school funk, soul and reggae subsidiary label SUPAFUNK RECORDS.
