The Next Movement are starting 2020 with the Single SX FNK, announcing a series of releases under #thegloriousreturnofthefunk.
"Sx Fnk“ (feel free to add vowels) shows how the band transports funkiness into 2020. Current sounds smoothly mix with dirty live-drum-breaks, driven by fat synth basses and cutting prince-guitars. The track starts with sparse and crisp groove and intimate falsetto and culminates in purple massive-rideout of ridiculous funkiness.
The Next Movement: Character, authenticity and urgency – but above all: Groove.
The Next Movement, led by singer / drummer J.J. Flueck, joined by Pascal „P“ Kaeser on bass & synth and guitar-virtuoso Sam Siegenthaler have gone through it all. The three have worked together over a decade as in-demand musicians and rhythm section (Greis, Nicole Bernegger, William White, Steff la Cheffe, Soul Train, The James Brown Tribute Show, Manillio, Diens, Rogue State Alliance a.m.m.), being too busy to release their own music.
With the release of their soulful-feelgood summer (video-)single „Superfly“, the group started a highly productive era. One EP later, the 16 track Longplayer LOUD is released End of February 2018. The following Singles „Voodoo“, „Let It Go“ and „ I wanna see you move“ get tons of props on US-musicblog Earmilk.com and negative white. In Spring 2019 the trio follows up with the EP „No Sleep Till Paradiso“ and another tour. Adding up to over 70 shows and building a highly explosive live-show. Explosive Groove-pop, with enough funky soul might be the most accurate description of their fairly unswiss sound creation. Comparisons to Anderson .Paak and references to Prince show up on a regular. Call it what you want; their music is very meaningful and grooves hard. Live delivery is a given and known to most promoters after literally thousands of shows with various artists and projects throughout Switzerland and abroad.
