MLR 042 // Roel Funcken

Prolific dutch producer Roel Funcken has established himself an agile and meticulous sonic craftsman, whose output is as accessible as it is innovative. last year, he opened for Flying Lotus and Tipper during their last US tour. Most recently he toured japan playing together with Bvdub, Ametsub and Magical mistakes, he played in madrid for the strandbeest exposition from Theo Jansen and played at his own mindcamp event together with esem, flint kids and syl kougai.

As half of the group Funckarma, he has recorded for esteemed labels as Skam, Ad Noiseam, Arcola (Warp), Isophlux, Marguerita and others. In 2010 Roel felt it was time to express his own work more cohesively. Since then he has released the full length albums 'Vade' (Ad Noiseam) and 'Mercury Retrograde' (Schematic). More recent stuff are the 'From the Archive'-series, a remix compilation and two fresh hip hop projects: Ndangr Species ('Night Terrors') and Brmstn ('Ventcha tru da Vortexxx'). The latest projects worth mentioning is the new Legiac album with Cor Bolten, the Faex has Decimated, the instrumental versions of the Ndangr Species release. Currently he is working on a new solo studio album of which you can find tracks in the methlab mix (styx, cantweleaveit, stabb zoid). Plus he has a new ambient mix ready for Headphone Commute, which is called “The Voynich Manuscript mix” named after the forthcoming legiac ambient release.
Roel's sound is constantly in a state of dynamic evolution, bringing his broad love for genres to live in new musical hybrids that are difficult to tag.
