about

How great is it to hear some ‘Made in France' Raw-Funk… Breakestra-style? So great Paris DJs didn't wait any second longer to licence the first single from The Sidetones for one of their funky compilations. Recorded live and direct during a series of short studio sessions, their debut EP captures some organ-heavy, break-beat driven, deep funk raw energy with their unique analogue sound; mixing the visceral energy of late 60s funk with the warmth of early 70s soul/psych grooves and infectious pop vocals.

About The Sidetones :
Formed in late 2010, The Sidetones are a Soul Funk band based in Lyon, France. Their original material combines elements of late 60’s early 70’s funk, break-beat, psychedelic and pop to forge a heavy yet soulful sound.
