The electro-funk rock crew from the Netherlands known as Tiny and the Underground Funk Squad have released their latest and greatest LP record album, titled, “M4YB (Music For Your Butt).” The album is comprised of 11 original tracks for an approximate total of one hour’s worth of excellent listening. A zany, endlessly fun and often hilarious record, “M4YB” by Tiny and the Underground Funk Squad is one of the most entertaining music collections produced this year, and one no lover of funk rock should miss.
The sound of “M4YB” is a collage of various style stemming from the Underground Funk Squad’s diverse musical influences. Tiny himself cites as favorites such legends as Prince, George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic, Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre, and Daily Dose of Funk.
He writes, “In the ’80s I became a huge Prince fan and all musicians that came with him. That’s when I came to listen to George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic. I went to one of their concerts and I was hooked. I never saw and heard anything like that. It was amazing.”
Naturally, the fostering roots of P-Funk run throughout the deep grooves of the Underground Funk Squad. Their style and tone are far from sounding too derivative, however, thanks to a bevy of other favorites the other Squad members bring with them in kind. These include (but are by no means limited to) the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, PTFI, Zootzilla, Ronkat Spearman, and The DDoF Collective. The blend of these sounds makes for extremely energetic and danceable music listening, even more so than one might already suppose.
For certain, Tiny and the Underground Funk Squad agree on one thing in the end (and part of it seems to be inspired by the infamous Stevie Wonder episode of the Cosby Show):
“We need to get the funk back. It’s time to jam on the one.”
“MY4B” by Tiny and the Underground Funk Squad is available online worldwide.
