Funk Cartel’s releases have been supported by Joseph Capriati, Adam Beyer, Sam Divine and Danny Howard.
Funk Cartel said: “Kym Mazelle is a true legend, having been there from the start of House music, and working with her vocal was a real honour for us. We met with Kym and she shared her stories back from when the genre was being formed. We took inspiration from this and wanted the record to take influence from that classic house sound. It’s upbeat and feel-good, carrying over the vibe from Supernatural (with Ultra Naté) nicely.”
Kym Mazelle is a pioneer of House. Credited as “The First Lady of House Music”. Her music combines R&B, soul, funk, house, disco and pop. She has collaborated with many leading artists and producers, including Soul II Soul (‘Missing You’), David Morales (‘Lovin’’), Jocelyn Brown (‘No More Tears’ and ‘Gimme All Your Lovin’’) and Marshall Jefferson (‘My Love’). Kym Mazelle’s cover of Candi Staton’s ‘Young Hearts Run Free’ appeared in Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 box office hit ‘William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet’.
It was Kwame Kwaten, Point Blank’s in-house A&R Director and Student Mentor, who hooked Funk Cartel up with the legendary singer Kym Mazelle. This opportunity came to fruition during a PB mentoring session with the duo, which was then solidified by Point Blank/Point Blank Recordings introducing the two musical parties, setting up studio time for the artists to work on music together. Kwame plays an integral part of a student’s journey at Point Blank, providing them with priceless industry insights, 1-2-1 sessions, musical connections and more.
