Markey Funk – INSTINCT: A Study on Tension, Fear and Anxiety (2015)

“Only the unknown frightens men. But once a man has faced the unknown, that terror becomes the known.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery


After 7 years of collaborations and numerous side projects, Markey Funk (Les Hippies, Mordy Laye and the Group Modular) is finally releasing his second solo album – Instinct. However, the new record is far from following the same samplecentric path, laid by its predecessor – the 2008′s (forgot the word). Instinct explores the dark corners of human consciousness in order to understand the nature of one of the most primal emotions – fear. Inspired by aesthetic of the 1970′s European crime/thriller film music, Markey created his own blend of cinematic grooves, edgy psychedelia and analogue electronics. With contributions from Gal Frenkel (vocals), Uri Mixmonster Wertheim (Kalbata & Mixmonster, tape-delay), Sagi Zax (Action! Attention!, drums), Emiko Kojima (flute), and Ran Nahimas (D.R.Y., theremin), Instinct is a colourful yet tense journey, balancing on a sharp edge between harmony and dissonance, groove and abstraction, order and chaos.
