Multidimensional Bboy Beats – Decap

Decap is a San Francisco musician dropping some majorly funked out creations that transcend genre, and one thing is for sure: Decap’s got the funk.

Dig these jammies he created for the very talented folks at Yak Films:

Thanks to Decap (@decapmusic) for sending us a link to his music and sharing the San Francisco style with us Florida folk.

And while Decap’s definitely got the heat for the cipher, dig his electro-grooving funk productions on his album “Omni Love” beginning with this massive joint “Summer Sunset”:

Decap describes his music as:

Ascension Music from the field of Primal Sound. Infused galactic consciousness into waveforms. Multidimensional energy infused beats.

Galactic indeed! Decap is another in a long line of artists that are known for creating Bboy tracks in addition to working in many other genres, and the music coming from these individuals and groups is just so damn dope!

These are also the people that are pioneering beyond what we know and experience, and thinking outside of the box toward the future.

And in the end you end up with an amazing piece of living art like this video from Silverback Bboy Events and Yak Films using Decap’s “Take Me Home”:

How would you describe the sound of Jungle Fire?

An explosive blend of Afro Latin funk.

Jungle Fire killed it at Cypher Adikts in LA last month. Click the picture to check out the recap!

Jungle Fire music is naturally bboy-friendly. Was this intentional or just a coincidence?

While recording the first single “Comencemos” aka Fela Kuti’s song “Let’s Start” we approached it with more of a heavy Latin funk Bboy breaks style arrangement very similar to a version on an old collectible Colombian record by Phirpo Y Sus Caribe.

Some of the members have been working with Hip Hop artists like Del La Soul, Del the Funky Homosapien so we have always added breaks to our music.

The group took a trip to Colombia and got to see the international reach of the Jungle Fire sound. Can you tell us about the trip?

We played a big music festival in Mompos, Colombia. It was an amazing experience for us because some of the rhythms we are inspired by brought us full circle.

For example, on our second 7″ release on Colemine Records  we recorded a tune called “Chalupa” which is a rhythm played in Afro Cumbia folkloric and popular music settings. We basically created a tune on the backbone of that rhythm.

“The festival organizers invited some Bboy dancers from Cartagena that danced to Comencemos and the crowd freaked!”

What is Jungle Fire working on right now?

We just released our full length Album “Tropicoso” on Nacional Records which features the music previously released on two vinyl 45’s.

We recorded a few songs featuring a great soul vocalist that will be released sometime in 2015.

What is your message for the bboys and bgirls around the world?

“Our message would be to explore the music that inspires you to be a Bboy or Bgirl. If you like a certain artist always look what inspired them that way you’ll find the roots.”

Thanks again to the very talented gentlemen of Jungle Fire for taking the time to talk to us!
