Ferry Ultra and the Homeless Funkers


Veteran DJ/producer Ferry Ultra's been round the soul block more than most, yet he still manages to keep his finger right on the modern soul pulse. Fronting the tightest soul combo (the Homeless Funkers) and collaborating with some major soul players, here he delivers one of the best modern soul sets of 2012. On the eponymous 12 tracker Ferry fuses his love, passion and knowledge of soul's golden era with the very best contemporary production values to create some mighty fine soul. In many ways Ferry works like the Cool Million people and it'll probably not surprise you to learn that one half of the Cool Million duo - Rob Hardt - is on hand here, co-producing and helping to keep things on the soul straight and narrow.

The debut album from veteran DJProducer Ferry Ultra, Ferry Ultra & the Homeless Funkers, provides eleven slices of real deal soul and funk sure to satisfy soul boys and girls across the spectrum. Featuring a veritable who's who of soul, funk and hip-hop, Ferry Ultra fuses his love for the music of the past with accomplished contemporary production without once losing soul's essential element: feeling.

"Ferry Ultra and the Homeless Funkers" undoubtedly deserves a home in your record collection! 

 

Bill Brewster at soulandjazzfunk.com has given a fantastic 5* review for the new Ferry Ultra and the Homeless Funkers album!

He writes:

"Ferry Ultra and Rob Hardt have here put together an outstanding modern soul set; it's right up there with ‘Cool Million III' and R Kelly's ‘Write Me Back'. Together, the three albums are you'll need if you want the very, very best of 2012′s modern soul."
