Artist Spotlight: Galactic

6 Aug

If you have never listened to Galactic, you’re certainly missing out. Their unique brand of “Modern New Orleans Funk”, combined with their incredible musicianship, puts Galactic in a league of their own and explains why they have been around for fourteen years. No one grooves like Galactic. They not only make great songs, but have incredible live jams. And as a drummer, I must say that Galactic’s drummer, Stanton Moore, is unbelievable and is one of my favorite drummers. They have 8 studio albums, the latest being released this past February, and they constantly tour. Their brand of funk consists of everything from jazz and to even hip-hop, including songs where they collaborate with various rappers. If you have never listened to funk music before, take my advice and give Galactic a chance.

And for those hip-hop fans, here you go.
