Release Notes:

Following an 8 year hiatus, the acclaimed collective
BROOKLYN FUNK ESSENTIALS triumphantly return with a new
studio album WATCHA PLAYIN'. Immaculately produced by
founder Lati Kronlund, the blistering set marks the
legendary multicultural collective's 15th anniversary and
is their first new studio offering since 2000's Make 'Em
Like It.

Released Spring 2008 (on Black Plastic Magick/Comet
Records), WATCHA PLAYIN' reunites the classic line-up of
Kronlund (bass, beats, guitar, keyboards and turntables),
vocalists Hanifah Walidah, Papa Dee and Everton Sylvester,
and Yancy Drew (drums & vocals) alongside Desmond Foster
(vocals & guitar), Iwan van Hetten (trumpet, keys &
vocals), Philippe Monrose (percussion) and an impressive
cast of notable guest contributors including Turkish
super-star clarinet player Hüsnü Senlendirici and Tunisian
Ra? Diva Amina Annabi (lead vocals). Awa Manneh and
Stephanie McKay (background vocals) and from Bebel
Gilberto's band Masa Shimizu (guitars). The album is the
forth studio release from the group who was born out of
New York's buzzing hip-hop-jazz and slam poetry scenes in
the early 90s.

WATCHA PLAYIN' finds the enduring outfit dispensing
radiant sonic nirvana with masterful arrangements,
eloquent lyrical narratives and exhilarating melodies.
Written and road-tested during the band's 2007 reunion
tour, the explosive set was recorded in New York, Paris,
Amsterdam, Istanbul and Stockholm injecting a distinctive
cosmopolitan flair vividly constructed around smooth
textures and jubilant rhythms, which have become the
band's signature (along with their impeccable live

Throughout the 12-track opus, BFE brilliantly showcase
their dexterity mining an eclectic musical terrain
anchored in full-bodied urban dance grooves, stylized pop,
sweltering 70s funk, irrepressible disco nostalgia, dance
-hall-infected reggae/hip-hop jams, and flavourful poly-
ethnic dub. Taking cues from contemporaries like Stephen
and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, Gnarls Barkley, M.I.A.,
N.E.R.D., Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai and Mr. Scruff,
BFE weave a cohesive widescreen collection where the
energy is infectious, the instrumentation superlative and
the songs dynamic - carefully balancing political fire and
ruminative societal critiques with transcendent elegies
and euphoric party jams.

WATCHA PLAYIN' is a tour-de-force that harkens back to the
spicy swagger of their landmark 1994 debut Cool and Steady
and Easy (which featured their funky reggae-inspired
reworking of Pharoah Sanders' classic "The Creator Has A
Master Plan"), the vibrant traditional Turkish folk
mosaics of 1998's Grammy-nominated In The Buzz Bag and the
refined pop mélange of 2000's Make 'Em Like It.

Tracks like the magnetic Gypsy-Skamitzva bounce "Dibby
Dibby Sound", "For A Few Dollars More / Faya" (a poignant
political meditation railing against the fractured state
of the world's money hungry democracies featuring Papa Dee
and Everton), the slinky jazz-house scorcher "S-Curved"
and the atomic maelstrom "My Jamaican Girl" (featuring
Hanifah Walidah) are poised to propel the acclaimed act
further into the pop consciousness without sacrificing
their underground roots.

The album is already gaining massive support from the
international DJ community with the early leak of "Need",
the sensorial 12-minute epic (and album opener) featuring
Everton Sylvester's hazy ragga vocals and the dreamy
Turkish clarinet tones of Hüsnü Senlendirici. And with
future single releases slated for stand-out cuts
"Bellybuttons T & A", "The Park" , "Rude Boy Shuffle" and
"Dance-Free Night", 2008 promises to be a banner year for
the influential global music ambassadors who embark on a
world tour in Europe on February 7th in Sweden, with US
dates to follow in May.
