Funkystepz – Royal Rumble EP

20.03.12, Words by: Anthony Walker

The prolific Funkystepz have kept themselves busy recently with countless edits, remixes and two EPs for the label Hyperdub last year. The three-man team of Renay, Stimpy and DJ Maxsin really do have the hardest yet the sweetest sound and they haven’t let up the pace one bit on their new ‘Royal Rumble EP’.

Their 2-stepping drums are unmistakably made for the dancefloor but stomping opener Warrior and the closing title track show a mindset that’s also built for war. The other two tracks feature the simply gut-wrenching combination of siren synths and high and low piano chords on Class A and the EP’s demented take on Timbaland’s instrumental for Jay-Z’s Jigga What, Jigga Who.

‘Royal Rumble EP’ will be released on April 2 on F.L.Y Records and a preview is available to stream via the Funkystepz Soundcloud
