CSC Funk Band – Funkincense


In 2011 the CSC Funk Band was picked to be the house band for a full-on tribute to MC Guru of the legendary hip hop duo Gang Starr at Fat Beats warehouse in Brooklyn and backed MC Masta Ace among others invariably adding another stylistic gear to the group’s colorful pedigree. Around the time of the Gang Starr tribute the group was tapped by Fat Beats to work on an instrumental record of Gang Starr instrumentals in the vein of 2009’s El Michael’s Affair’s reinterpretation of Wu-Tang music, Enter the 37th Chamber. The project was never realized however countless hours were logged in the Fat Beats studios distilling CSC Funk Band’s expansive breadth into shorter bursts of tighter popping funk pockets. This is where the sound for Funkincense stems from.

The CSC Funk Band pressed their new album Funkincense 12” vinyl album with scratch ‘n sniff promo sticker as an exclusive Record Store Day limited-edition release and available mostly in independent record stores internationally that specialize in vinyl records. The album will also be available through digital outlets worldwide Tuesday, April 23, 2013.
