Cult funk group BROOKLYN FUNK ESSENTIALS Release new single ‘Scream!’ 13th July

7th album ‘Intuition’ out November 2022 On Dorado Records

London, 29th June 2022 The cult funk ensemble Brooklyn Funk Essentials have announced their exciting new single ‘Scream!’ will be released on 13th July, and their hotly anticipated seventh studio album ‘Intuition’ will come out in November 2022 on Dorado Records, the original label who first signed the band in 1994.

‘Scream’ is an infectious and uplifting funk and afrobeat jam, a syncopated groove wrapped by powerful Tower Of Power style horns and percussion, with lyrics that make a shout for freedom of expression. The track is the outcome of the pandemic on the band led by bassist and founder Lati Kronlund, who jammed, wrote and recorded music continuously together in their studio.

Legendary lead singer and co-writer Alison Limerick explains the lyrics “Time teaches you that suppressing self-expression is either damaging or impossible. ‘Scream!’, written in the company of those who ‘got’ me, who were happy to let me slip the reins and be me, is a shout for freedom and an encouragement for others to do the same, to find the voice that is truly theirs and use it.”

Across a career that stretches 28 years and six albums, Brooklyn Funk Essentials have established themselves as an audacious project fusing soul, hip hop, spoken word, jazz, latin and of course, funk. BFE have built up a loyal international cult following since inception in 1993 by iconic producer Arthur Baker and bassist Lati Kronlund. The band was born out of New York’s buzzing hip hop, jazz and slam poetry scenes in the early 90s, rotating some of the finest musicians, DJs, poets, rappers and singers. BFE’s celebrated debut album Cool & Steady & Easy’ (Dorado/RCA 1995) scored an underground hit with their version of Pharoah Sanders’ ‘The Creator Has a Master Plan’ and featured the legendary Maceo Parker, The Tower Of Power Horns and Dizzy Gillespie.

BFE released ‘Funk Ain’t Ova’ on Dorado Records in 2015 and the single ‘Dance Or Die’ quickly racked up over 2 million streams. During touring, BFE were joined by UK soul singer Alison Limerick, for whom Lati Kronlund had originally written and produced the stone-cold classic house anthem ‘Where Love Lives’ in the early 90s.  Limerick took over as the band’s lead singer in 2016, she eventually became co-writer, along with long-time singer and guitarist Desmond Foster and drummer Hux Flux. Completing the BFE lineup is Kristoffer Wallman on keys and Ebba Asman on trombone and vocals.

BFE will return to play live this summer with some European festival dates across Sweden, Norway, France, Belgium, Czech Republic and more, with more live dates plus a new London live date to be announced.
