Moon Town


Vintage jazz-funk outfit Beat Funktion takes you back to the roaring 70s with Moon Town, their second presentation of floorfilling funk grooves, meaty bass riffs and fiery jazz solos: the concept album Moon Town, telling the dark tale of a fictitious sci-fi city oozing with criminality, suspenseful action, drizzling rain and surreal inhabitants. Original compositions are merged with fresh takes on select funk covers, and the band is joined by percolating percussion, vocal choruses and orchestral strings for their trademark powerhouse sound.
