Zackey Force Funk was born into this wild world in Tucson, AZ in 1974. In and out of prison since the age of 17, ZFF began producing on pirated software his brother gave to him once he had given up a life crime to focus on writing tunes and raising his family. First discovered by Kutmah back in the golden era of Myspace, Zackey’s signature “Force Funk Sound” swiftly grabbed the attention of a number of formidable producers. As these tunes were scattered across various labels, finding their homes on their respective collaborator’s projects, ZFF continued to hone his style, delving deeper into the psychedelic future funk realm of which he has created for himself.
The fruits of his discipline all add up to “Electron Don” [HNR52] a 15-track collection of early productions that serves as the initial transmission of a fantastical mind that has many more stories to tell. “Electron Don” gathers together various unreleased and classic tracks recorded by Zackey Force Funk circa 2009-2011 in Tucson, AZ. Included here are a treasure-trove of classic productions by the Electron Don himself, as well as tracks by luminaries Salva, Mike Gao, Lorn, Jellphonic, Cupp Cave, Crimekillz, Mark Lowe and Paolo XZ.
Manufactured in collaboration with world famous Fat Beats, the collection is available Tuesday February 9th, 2016 on limited-edition 12″ china white vinyl (featuring stunning cover artwork by Devin Troy Strother) – only 500qty pressed! – as well as collectible cassette tape (featuring bonus track “El Camino”) worldwide.
