Swedish unstoppable six-piece groove machine Beat Funktion is back on the scene with their fifth full-length concept album Olympus, on which they fetch inspiration from Greek mythology, proving their music can be hip even among ancient Gods, princesses, heroes and monsters. With a handful of newly composed music from the pen of Daniel Lantz, the band has pieced together a brand new album with Mats Björke again as co-producer, but this time around featuring guest vocals as a new ingredient: American Damon Elliott, 7 x Grammy award winning rapper and producer associated with global stars such as Beyoncé, Pink and Gwen Stefani; South African soul queen Sani Gamedze, global performer with icons like Bob James and Hugh Masakela; Swedish Rebecca Laakso, vocal pop prodigy and winner of Eurovision Youth Contest 2003. A funky masterpiece worthy of the Gods!
