Nona Hendryx is the real deal; a true musical icon. As a singer, songwriter and performer she has continued to push the envelope since the world first took notice to her work alongside Patti Labelle and the Bluebelles in the 60’s. But it was when she broke off from the girl group in the late 70’s that she really established a voice and vibe of her own as a solo artist. Nona is the original freak. From her music to her fashion and attitude, she’s a ground breaker that has paved the way for what we know today as contemporary music.We (Soul Clap) first connected with Nona Hendryx through our work with George Clinton, Sa’d “the Hourchild” Ali and Chuck “Da Fonk” Fishman. She wrote and sang the single “Shine” from our last album. That experience left us all wanting to collaborate more, so we teamed up with Morgan Wiley from Midnight Magic and all got in the studio to producing new EP for Soul Clap Records; four tracks of house, soul, jazz and of course THE FUNK. “Ever since she first put pen to paper, Nona’s transformed rhythm into a salve for the soul, fighting chaos and discord with funk and spirit. Rhythm is the heartbeat of this EP, a pulse fueled by Nona’s partners in Soul Clap. She’s penned four new songs for “true believers,” for right now, for moments packed with possibility. Nona brings jazz maestro Jason Miles aboard to free the mind and raise the freak flag on “Funkin’ for the World” while groove master’s Selan and Nile Rodgers amplify the one-two punch of her words and rhymes on “Scream.” She propels love to blissful heights on “Ooo Ooo” and weaves it through the vibrations on”I Feel Joy (Feel the Spirit).” No matter where the needle drops, Nona puts the evolution in revolutions (per minute). Bask in the joyful spell she casts: “This is your time!” -Christian John Wikane

Brooklyn based band Underground System is embracing all that they are, and what they stand for, on their forthcoming album, WHAT ARE YOU. Due out September 7th on Soul Clap Records. Underground System is an ever-evolving convergence of musical and cultural influences. The female-fronted group of global dance music deconstructionists have cultivated a sound as inimitable as its members. Something familiar and referential that simultaneously projects a fiercely original energy, the band synthesizes elements of afrobeat, new wave, dance music, and contemporary classical performance, seen through the international lens of a New York City band in 2018. Peter Matson, bandleader/producer, comments, “Our music is heavily influenced by the context that is projected by the New York underground. As much as we are rooted in afrobeat and other well recognized musical styles, we pay homage to the way these sounds were combined and progressed over the years by pushing to find our own original voice. The Band has built a national reputation around a seamlessly executed stage show, astonishing wherever they go, and compelling crowds to move with unbridled verve. Continuing to reinvent their brand of global dance music, Underground System remains a force determined to recreate, redefine, and reconstruct. Underground System is comprised of Peter Matson on guitar, sampling, Domenica Fossati on lead vocals, flute, and percussion, Yoshio Kobayashi on Drums, Jon Granoff on bass, Lollise Mbi on shekere and background vocals, Olatunji Tunji on congas, Morgan Wiley on synthesizers and keyboards. Although they are based in New York, Underground System came together from different places, countries, and cultures. Their diverse life experiences including different political times and cultural identities, is the foundation for the new album WHAT ARE YOU, the band’s first full length LP. Previous releases have included two single/EPs and several remix records. The new album was recorded in New York at both Studio G and Transmitter Park Studio, the band knew they wanted to incorporate live elements that might be hard to pull off without the right production approach. Peter Matson adds, “We knew that recording it at Studio G and finishing it at Transmitter Park would be the perfect place. Tony Maimone from Studio G is an indie rock legend that played with groups like They Might Be Giants and Pere Ubu. He was invaluable. Abe Seiferth, who we finished the album with, worked at DFA studio for years. Mixing the record with Abe was amazing and was so instrumental in moving this project along.” Underground System starting writing WHAT ARE YOU in 2015, with Peter and singer Domenica Fossati beginning with bedroom demos. Once inspired, Peter would program a beat and Domenica would add parts until it started to gel. Domenica Fossati recalls, "The writing process for this album was really rewarding for me because it illuminated the vulnerability of writing lyrics from a deep personal space, pushing me out of my comfort zone." When it came time to name the album, Underground System knew the direction they wanted to go in. “It’s named after one of our songs on the album, and it’s a personal thing that relates to the formation of the music as well as us as people. We bring a lot of different influences to our music,” says Peter. “What are you?” is also a question often asked to Domenica because of her seemingly ambiguous ethnicity. After all she is a trilingual, of African-American Italian descent, born in the States, and raised in Venezuela and Miami, FL. Peter mentions, “people don’t always know how to deal with what they cannot identify.” Departing from the extended forms typically associated with Underground System’s live performances and stylistic roots, the new album is a deep 10 track look into the group’s mix of talented personnel and profound sonic diversity. The first single from WHAT ARE YOU, “Go” was released with an accompanying animated video created by Alice Cohen. The video saw it’s worldwide premiere on Billboard. It’s impossible not to hear the band’s development on this track, where they stay true to their afrobeat roots while incorporating elements of new wave, alternative and post punk. The band’s second single will be “Three’s A Charm,” which is deeply rooted in West African music. Other stand-out tracks include the horn driven early 80s disco sound of “Just a Place,” and “Rent Party,” which will remind eagle eared listeners of both Madness and The B52s. Underground System plans to support WHAT ARE YOU with a national tour, as their live shows have always been the band’s calling card. Known as having timeless sensibility and authority of a killer live band, they’re very proud of the new album and excited for fans to experience these new tracks. Peter reflects, “On this particular record, the biggest challenge was really finding the center of us being a fully original group, outside of it being our first full length LP. The record definitely marks the beginning of us striving to put ourselves out there as songwriters and producers, and to make something that is uniquely our own. We all took this record to our hearts.” In demand with large scale cultural institutions as well as festivals and club nights, notable performances include Central Park Summer Stage w/ Seun Kuti & Roy Ayers, GroundUp Festival 2018, Sinkane Presents: Underground System at National Sawdust, Output Rooftop, Bowery Ballroom (NYC) w/ !!! (chk chk chk), Chicago World Music Festival, and National Sawdust w/ Tigue and Innov Gnawa.

Detroit's 'Disco au Courant' Pontchartrain brings his kind of Funk and Nu Disco to Soul Clap Records with The Citalmina EP. "Citalmina", a name of Aztec origin that means 'Shooting Star', perfectly describes Pontchartrain's title track which rolls along propelling the dance floor to a place of magic and mystery. DJ's are gonna love this one. Then things slow right down on "Where Do We Go Now", a balearic cut complete with moving synth arpeggiation, smooth pads and plenty of percussion. "Rio Magdalena" rounds out the body of music taking us into a totally different deep dance direction that feels both inspired by the past yet entirely futuristic. And as if the mark hadn't already been hit we're very proud to enlist the remix duties of Detroit keyboard/talkbox heavyweight Hazmat to give this track about the funkiest facelift we could have imagined; awash with synths, sound effects and a killer guitar solo at the end that will leave minds blown!

Soul Clap Records’ New Directions In Funk is back with a double A-Side 7" of that electronic funk to get you ridin’… After selling out of 500 records of the first edition, round two is another 500 record limited run on purple vinyl. One side features rising Sao Paolo electronic wizard Zopelar who brings us a smooth out bedroom jam called "Hold You (Like The Music)" featuring Serge Erege on vocals, while the flip is Boston’s favorite funk band, The Nephrok! Allstars with "Ride It” for those booties. Zopelar’s "Hold You (Like The Music)” is as romantic as it gets. With a popish line and a raw mix that makes you imagine you are listening to some obscure backing tracks from an old hidden tape, it features the singer Serge Erege, who added incredible vocals and lyrics to the instrumental version. Hold You is the single from Zopelar’s forthcoming cassette album release “EGG” on Soul Clap Records. EGG shows a very intimate side of the producer, revealing much of his background and clearly presenting his later works as Sphynx (aka Zopelar and Marcio Vermelho) and his own label "In Their Feelings”. It’s a trip to the origins of home recording, rescuing the pure sense of the act of making music.Originally featured on our Dancing on The Charles Vol. 3 compilation last year, Ride It is an instant classic that demanded to get on wax. A throwback to the days of that Summer jam that would light the party or club on fire and get every soul up on the dance floor as soon as the DJ put the needle to the record and the sultry opening chords pulsed from the speakers. Written by Nephrok!, Brew from House of Vibe (LA), and Aaron and Amy Bellamy (The A-Beez) it was produced by Nephrok! as a culmination of influences ranging from Prince, D'Angelo, and P-Funk to a perfect combination of West Coast swagger and East Coast Soul, ....it was, is, and will be a banger for a long time.
