Awkward Movements presents The Monsta Funk Sessions

Something special here from one of the finest selectors and record collections we know. 6 hours worth of live recorded wax only sessions, done in three blocks with no edits and no redoes. All records that Jimmy Monsta Funk purchased in 2014, crossing over genres like no one else can, mixed to perfection.

Jimmy Monsta Funk is like the preacher from the electronic music church. The bits he writes for us are mostly based on the scene’s coming back around and deeper music history from a head who experienced it back in the day. But through a love of music and a constant to desire to learn he’s somehow achieved what few others do and stayed relevant without caring about times or scenes. The man absorbs knowledge like no one else and has played techno in every major city across the world. The everlasting influence comes from Detroit’s ‘Belleville Three’ (Derrick May, Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson), who in his opinion ‘have crafted some of the most amazing music and influenced a raft of budding home studio producers to release their tracks’.

So that’s six hours of tunes from 2014…so last year.
