Everyone’s favorite Prince of Funk sat down with FACTMag and talked about the life and times of being awesome. He spills about being a fan of Star Trek, Prince, Kendrick Lamar & what it’s like to be one of the most sampled artists of all time. Not a bad read if you’ve got a minute and interest in this kinda stuff.
The God of Funk & his Pantheon, Parliament Funkadelic blew minds when they announced their latest creative gambit. At Metropolis, one of the sacred spaces in recording/production, George Clinton will be recording a “super limited edition album” direct to vinyl for a very select group of mega-fans. Metropolis in the UK is one of the only studios in the world equipped to do this, and if you’re into it, you can not only attend recording sessions, but also a master class by Clinton himself, The Vinyl Factory reports. This is probably going to raise the general funk quotient of the planet by an order of magnitude or two, so hit up PledgeMusic if you’re interested in attending. As, 150 sterling for a class with the p-funk impresario himself is a freaking steal.
