In the ever-changing landscape of modern funk with its amorphous topology, Cantaloop certainly stand out. Just as the Malvern Hills tower above the flatlands below!
Festival favourites Cantaloop are recently reborn. They have upped the tempo and switched to a higher gear while still holding true to their ethos of unity and community. Fusing their infectious organic funk with emotive digital beats, Cantaloop bring their new 2.0 flavour to the stage.
They’ve put the drummer into a digital box, embracing cut and paste technology to supercharge their sound, this transformation creates a juggernaut of sound and rhythm, perfect for clubs and festivals.
Fusing past and present with a turbine of rhythms, hear the whistle-blast that heralds the arrival of this power-house of funk, punk, soul jazz and hip-hop.
Here comes the get down!
