Funk brothers from South-East London, Mulvey’s Medicine’s ethos is centred around providing fun, positivity and making people move, and this last year has taken its meaning to a whole new level. Following the success of their last few singles, notable ‘The Jam Formerly Known As The Prince Jam’ which gathered wide support in the UK funk and jazz scene, the funky combo are back with an EP mixing their trademark booty-shaking / foot-tapping funky instrumentals and some vocal features courtesy of some of London’s best soulful singers joining the funk crusade. “I hope this EP will connect to everyone in a deep, personal way that is a gentle reminder that music can cure and uplift your life” says Eddie Mulvey, guitarist and founder.
The result is a vibrant mix of sounds and influences with blatant musicianship inspired by the works of Lettuce, Funkadelic, Parliament, Herbie Hancock, D’Angelo, Soulive, The Average White Band, George Benson, George Duke and many others.
