We’re excited to announce two new additions to the Point Blank Recordings label catalogue; Operation Funk and Kathy Sledge’s track ‘Could It Be You?’ as well as an excellent remix of the song from John “J-C” Carr featuring Rytz.
‘Could It Be You?’ is an ultra-smooth jam, which features Operation Funk‘s recognisable disco-inspired grooves accompanied by the legendary Kathy Sledge‘s silky vocals. Speaking about the track, Kathy Sledge said: “Working with Operation Funk was truly organic. We all met the very same day we wrote this brilliant song. Effortless and magical. I love it!” This one’s sure to find its way into numerous DJ sets this summer. Listen below.
The Grammy-nominated Kathy Sledge is best known as the founding member of the iconic Sister Sledge alongside three of her sisters. Achieving international success at the height of the disco era, the trio released countless hits such as ‘We Are Family’ (Grammy Award-nominated for Best R&B Performance), ‘He’s The Greatest Dancer’, ‘Lost In Music’, ‘My Guy’, and ‘Thinking Of You’. In 1989, Kathy embarked on a solo career and had several hits including ‘Take Me Back To Love Again’ which hit No.1 in 1992. Kathy Sledge has collaborated with electronic artists including Robert Miles, Adam Barta, and Aristofreeks.
Dedicated to bringing a unique and new-school take on old-school house and soul from the late 80s and 90s, Operation Funk blend that essence of the legendary era with the sound of tomorrow. Recent graduates of Point Blank music school, Operation Funk met Kathy Sledge through our in-house A&R Director, Kwame Kwaten, who has a wealth of industry contacts. As well as linking the PB graduates up with the iconic soul singer, Kwame and Point Blank were integral in facilitating the production of the song and management of the project. From booking studios and assigning remixers to running PR campaigns around a release, this is an opportunity you can expect to benefit from when working with Point Blank Recordings and attending Point Blank Music School. Stay tuned to see which exciting artists Operation Funk team up with next.
