What The Funk?

 

Nils CD "What The Funk?" features 12 tracks recorded at Nilsmusic Studio in Hidden Hills, Ca.

" We tracked the drums at Ricky's (Lawson) place. The rest was done here in my home studio.

I really love the guitar tone i got this time. I used a Bogner Alchemist amp with an open back 2x12 cabinet loaded with Vintage 30s. I placed a SN 57 in front and a Neuman TLM103 behind the cabinet"

 

 

Samples of Previous productions

 

String Theory

 

Nils love for electronic music and bands like Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation, Groove Armada and the Chemical Bros. is clearly being expressed in this first CD 'Vibrations' and shows a very different side of his musical talents. Vibrations with 6 vocal and 6 instrumental tracks is more synth heavy and when guitar was used it is more in a David Gilmore/Pink Floyd kind of approach. And like Dark Side of the Moon a lot of the tracks evolve into each other. The Single 'Too Big To Fail' makes a strong political statement as well as being a musical power track.
