The DJ from New York’s Queens borough known as DJ SeanKev has released his latest LP album, “HouseFunkysco.” The record comprises 16 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of a full hour. It has been published on the AMAdea Music record label. Funky, groovy, and packed with the genuine nightclub sound of the early 1990s, “HouseFunkysco” is the latest example in DJ SeanKev’s growing repertoire that he may be Queens’ most talented emcee on wax.
DJ SeanKev is notable for his rock-solid skills at matching beats, sculpting a playlist, and creating colorful, inventive new material from mere fragments of audio. But what marks SeanKev as truly outstanding is his devotion to the authentic methods and traditions of disc-jockeying: he does it all with vinyl records from the period. His disco comes from the ’70s. His old-school beats come from the ’80s. Now, with this latest installment, SeanKev proves that he can do it with the sounds of the early 1990s.
“I’m releasing my second dance album which contains some real, vintage, funky, ’90s-style house music,” writes SeanKev.
SeanKev’s other LP releases, “1982 Disco, Funk and Soul” and “Soul Trap Music,” have been garnering him a loyal and populous following since their releases in 2013. These newcomers are only happy additions to a fan base he’s been inspiring since his first performances in the clubs of the 1990s.
Speaking of “HouseFunkysco,” he writes: “My album shares a real divine message in dancing and feeling free to the music. It gives off a certain vibe to the body and soul. Takes a person back to the good old days in New York City, when the clubs of my era (the ’90s) were the place to be.”
Make no mistake, SeanKev brings the funk and soul of the ’80s alive just as well, but he’s truly at home spinning music from 1990-1999, as the results show.
“I had a real good time producing this sound for the world to enjoy,” writes SeanKev.
SeanKev cites as main artistic influences Tee Scott, Larry Joseph, Boyd Jarvis, Larry Levan and “all the vintage club heads.” Sporting a well-deserved degree of fame in the old-school DJ subculture, SeanKev has mixed with some true, modern titans, Natasha Diggs among them.
“HouseFunkysco” by DJ SeanKev is available online worldwide.
