Maybe Sun – Pool

Word on the street is that Maybe Sun wanted to release a Funk tribute EP for the Summer after acquiring a load of analogue equipment. This is the outcome. That pure, unapologetic, unadulterated funk for your head-piece. Melody Sun established itself way back in 2015 as a platform for both physical and digital domain releases…

Tokoyo manuvers the listener through 7-tracks of chill terrain changing tempos & moods without ever switching the vibe. A…
