More Info:

Soul Clap Records presents to you "Reprise Tonight", the debut long player from FSQ (Funk Style Quality). The album, which is released July 24th, features guest appearances from a heavy list of funk legends: George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Nona Hendryx, Fonda Rae, Denise King, and Dolette McDonald and is the brainchild of two of the most influential forces in Soul Clap's musical journey, Chuck "Da Fonk" Fishman and our dear departed Sa'd "The Hourchild" Ali. "Reprise Tonight" is a concept album that tells the story of a person who gets the opportunity to have one last party, the party of their life, and we get to see how far they can push it, given the chance to cram all the fun they can into one 24 hour period. The bug that became FSQ was planted when a young DJ and hip-hop / house head (Sa'di) and an even younger funk fan (Chuck, who met in the mid 1990s as touring members of George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, with Sa'd himself being Dr Funkenstein's nephew. After a deep brainstorm to find new ways to reinvent themselves for the dance music world, Chuck and Sa'd brought Soul Clap, George Clinton and Sly Stone together for a legendary 2013 collaboration at Red Bull Studios, Los Angeles. Also instrumental in that historic recording session was 8 time Grammy nominated producer G Koop. The trio - Chuck, Sa'd and G Koop then became FSQ - a production team committed to creating original funk music, across various styles (northern soul, disco, house music) with supreme quality. Forming under the auspices of this P-Funk / EFUNK collaboration, FSQ debuted on Soul Clap Records in 2014 with their Zulu Congo Call EP, which received 10/10 in Mixmag.
