2017 was one of our busiest yet at Jalapeno HQ with albums from our established roster acts ephemerals, Kraak & Smaak and The Allergies as well as a stunning collection from newcomer Izo FitzRoy and long awaited returns from the funk connoisseur‘s favourite acts Soopasoul, Gizelle Smith and John Turrell.
As the time of year to collate our annual Jalapeno Funk compilation drew nearer we once again had the enviable headache of having to go through the list to only pick 20 tracks for the record...
As difficult as it was we can now proudly present to you Jalapeno Funk Vol. 9 - a generous serving of killer cuts from our roster. Bringing you the sounds that made us what we are today - it’s a full length, nonstop party vibe machine... A certified dancefloor magnet and this year a team of scientists have even proven that playing this collection in sequence also makes you physically more attractive and increases your IQ*
The collection as always is a celebration of our funkiest new releases with classic Jalapeno tracks and exclusives from friends and like-minded labels. The Jalapeno crew are all present and correct with contributions from all the aforementioned artists plus Smoove & Turrell, Dr Rubberfunk, Basement Freaks, Radio Trip and Skeewiff.
Also our extended Jalapeno family in the shape of Légère Recordings and 45 Live Records have also chipped in with some funk nuggets by Myles Sanko, Boca45 and Aeon Seven for good measure...
If the sound of that tickles your funn(k)y bone then do yourself a favour and check it out!
