Funktastic Players is a musical project from USA. They define their musical style as “the perfect blend of 70’s soul, 80’s hip hop and contemporary jazz!”
David Williams, a founder of Funktastic Players, started out as an MC/DJ and spend a lot of time producing rap. As all rap producers from that era he sampled soul, jazz and funk records from the ’70s. But he wanted to re-create his own soul music but not just to sample it.
Many years later David found himself free to create music in the desired way. He decided to create a catalogue of tunes that people would love and wish to see them performed.
