The Young Punx – Harlem Breakdown
“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.

MIXMAG TUNE OF THE MONTH – November
“A straight-up party rocker. The first release from their eagerly anticipated third album comes in the form of a 1970s New York jazz-funk roller which builds slowly, then suddenly unleashes a massive dose of phat beats and bass. Their boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm shines throughout with an underlying organic live feel that’s perfect for that party atmosphere. We wait with bated breath for their forthcoming new album out later this year. 9/10″ – Mixmag November 2013
