After 7 years of collaborations and numerous side projects, Markey Funk (Les Hippies, Mordy Laye and the Group Modular) is finally releasing his second solo album – Instinct. However, the new record is far from following the same samplecentric path, laid by its predecessor – the 2008’s (forgot the word). Instinct explores the dark corners of human consciousness in order to understand the nature of one of the most primal emotions – fear. Inspired by aesthetic of the 1970’s European crime/thriller film music, Markey created his own blend of cinematic grooves, edgy psychedelia and analogue electronics. With contributions from Gal Frenkel (vocals), Uri Mixmonster Wertheim (Kalbata & Mixmonster, tape-delay), Sagi Zax (Action! Attention!, drums), Emiko Kojima (flute), and Ran Nahimas (D.R.Y., theremin), Instinct is a colourful yet tense journey, balancing on a sharp edge between harmony and dissonance, groove and abstraction, order and chaos.
Highly recommended for fans of Ennio Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Goblin, David Axelrod, Mr Chop, Broadcast, The Kramford Look and The Heliocentrics.
