“Harlem Breakdown” – the opening track from The Young Punx’ forthcoming 3rd album – is a fierce wall of funk guaranteed to get your stink face on.
In true ‘Punx’ style – mashing up genres and tearing up the production rule book – the act created this track by writing and performing their own take on the virtuoso horn-funk and jazz of 1970s New York. Performed by the punx and their regular live band, the music was recorded entirely on vintage 70s recording equipment for that authentic retro dirt. Then, back at base camp The Young Punx remixed and mashed up their own recording to build a filthy electro stomp like Daft Punk on Tequila and steroids.more]

To quote The Fader: “The maximalist UK producer Bobby Tank’s lavish funk anthem “Afterburn” now has a frantic, technicolor video befitting the single’s size. Picture three minutes of hitting the turbo-boost on Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road, except everyone’s topless. The glitchy transition between shots is immaculate.” (Buy on iTunes)more]
