Ghetto Funk DJ and producer Father Funk has today released his long-awaited debut album ‘Heavy Rotation’ on his favourite day of the year – 420 day! Not only is it his first full record but it is also the first release on his brand new label ‘Funk Therapy’. The new album is available now in all major digital stores across 270 countries.

After signing with legendary agency and former label Finger Lickin’, Father Funk quickly became one of the biggest names in Breakbeat and Ghetto Funk. Fresh off the back of two Canada tours earlier this year and the 1st anniversary of his own successful Bristol based night ‘Church of Love’, the father has cemented himself as one of the freshest tastemakers in the UK right now.
Taking huge inspiration from the disco and funk sounds of the 70’s and 80’s he has been writing music for over 10 years having released 5 EP’s and numerous singles across Sunday Best, Ghetto Funk, Adapted Records and Scour Records to name a few. His back catalogue includes remixes for the likes of Dub Pistols and Fort Knox Five including many bootleg remixes that have also amassed huge numbers on Soundcloud.
This debut record is the first full release that is completely original and free from his best-known sampling work. It captures the energy of the funk and soul golden years whilst combining it with modern dance music and disco culture, not sticking to one particular genre. With over 3 years in the making the father has been able to collaborate with some of the freshest names in the UK on this project; including London rap duo Too Many T’s, Ghetto Funk legends WBBL and Slynk, Canadian rap group Illvis Freshly and neo-soul singer Hilary Beckett.
Speaking on the new release Will Williamson aka Father Funk said:

I think the album is a bit of a lost art these days, and as someone who still very much enjoys listening to them, I wanted to bring back this mentality of writing songs as a collective artwork, not just as floor fillers or money makers. ‘Heavy Rotation’ is not just for dance floors but for front rooms, backyards and long journeys. I hope you enjoy it is as much as I enjoyed making it.

Father Funk is fast becoming the one to go to in the ghetto funk scene for continuously massive, bass laden bangers. With tracks and remixes released on top labels Ghetto Funk, Breakbeat Paradise, Tremendo and Scour records and many more to come, things look very promising for the young producer.

His latest mix just goes to cement the funk filled talent he holds with every track a Father Funk original, remix or re-edit. Some seriously good sounds feature within so stop what you’re doing and turn the funk up to 11.

The awesome Scour Records have reached their first birthday and to celebrate have unleashed a bounty of freebies. Featuring four of the artists that have helped shape the label we get Father Funk reworking Leo Sayer into some respectable dance floor fodder, Leo dropping a rather large and bouncy bass-glitch-funk workout, Warp9 reshaping Prince’s 1999 for the new generation and The Phunk Junkies get it on with Shirley Bassey’s Big Spender and a double bass with glorious results. Every track is a winner and a great celebration. Here’s to another fine year of big tunes from Scour Records.
