Denver is in store for a treat in the form of a few talented artists neck deep in the electro-funk game. It’s all going down at Cervantes’ and it’s all going to be super wobbly and funky and soulful and amazing. First up, coming straight out of the east coast, New York’s Lowtemp funk group, Exmag.
Coming hot off the release of their most recent album, Part 1, they’re ready to hit Denver with the same groovy forces put into that effort and leave all hungry for Part 2 (Ha!). Having linked up with other talented acts, such as Mick Jenkins and Cobrayama to deliver it, as well as a well-known history with other funk icons such as Gramatik, Griz, and Russ Liquid, Exmag is poised to melt Cervantes’ down and turn everyone’s legs to jelly.
The second half of this funk phenomena is the local talent Bass Physics. Fresh off a successful stint at Decadence on NYE, kicking off the Time Vault stage, BP is ready to for some wobbly, bassy jams at Cervantes. The man had been having a year even before that stellar performance, releasing “Alone With You featuring Carly Lynn,” “Elation,” and he linked up with fellow funk friend, Evanoff, for the chune “Stealing Fire.”
To cap it off, just before the year closed out, he released “So I Know” on Big Beat Records with forthebeach. He teased a big Illenium remix to close out Decadence that you can look forward to hearing at Cervantes should you find your way there.
It all goes down January 20th. Tickets are $15 online in advance and $20 the day of the show, so get your’s here before the price increases, although it’s worthy of your dollars regardless.
