Underground dance music from Indonesia, for lovers of those sensual sounds and new era funk!
Struggling to get by in the luscious capital of West Java, Bandung's MUNIR found a home in the rhythm of the city's funk.
An avid Boogie aficionado, the funkateer echoes these historical sounds of change and manages to record most of his music with borrowed gear. His dedication to the underground dance scene stems from the very streets that introduced him to his own transformative sound. As a DJ, producer, label owner and graphic designer, the Indonesian artist is determined to breathe life into an underappreciated, yet influential music scene.
With vintage synths and beat machines, MUNIR captures a late 70s and early 80s vibe transformed into well-balanced, contemporary cuts. The album showcases his intriguing skills and dedication to the art form, with influences ranging from House to Ambient and the ever-present rawness of Funk.
Dopeness Galore is proud to have Bandung's MUNIR back for the release of a full-length album. Built around a lush stay at a place where water is salt and life is sweet: Welcome to the Grand Paradise Hotel.
Enjoy your stay.
