From the very beginning, Vinyl was noticeably influenced by the old school funk grooves of bands like the Meters, while still holding a certain flare for Latin, reggae, jazz and dub elements. Vinyl’s self titled album will get you dancing with its Latin percussion mixed with funky helpings of R&B and reggae.

Album Review

The group throws in bits of familiar sounds from James Brown’s R&B to George Clinton’s funk mixed in with snazzy guitar lines favored by Santana and Booker T & the MG’s party rock into their sonic stew. They call this “Eucalyptus Funk”. Vinyl specializes in a pumping Hammond B3 organ. Mostly instrumental, their music is wide-ranging and creates a funky groove with an old-school flavor. The Fog Shack volumes are remix albums with a hip-hop feel featuring music by Bernie Worell and Les Claypool.
