PB students and DJ/producer duo, Funk Cartel, have joined forces with the legendary singer Ultra Naté for a brand new single, ‘Supernatural’, which will be released via BMG next month.
Best known for her track ‘Free’, Ultra Naté’s perpetual presence in dance music, and her ability to adapt to a variety of sounds, has certified her as a musical icon. Since beginning her career in the early 90s, she has released nine studio LPs and still travels the globe performing live for a variety of audiences. Now, thanks to Point Blank’s industry connections, she has teamed up with two PB students, the DJ/producer duo Funk Cartel, for a brand new club anthem.
Funk Cartel, which consists of brothers ‘Blame Rory’ and ‘Kimono Cam’, are championed for their rave ready flavours, which bring life and soul to the underground sound. The brothers believe that house music has the ability to bring people together like no other and that their purpose is to share this message – and their latest single with Ultra Naté is no exception.
It was Kwame Kwaten, Point Blank’s in-house A&R Director and Student Mentor, who hooked Funk Cartel up with the legendary singer Ultra Naté. 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 and then finally, negotiating a licensing deal with the mighty BMG to have the track released on their world-class label. 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.
