This week, MalLabel Music is stoked to bring you an inspiring new artist with a fresh take on Funk and Blues for the 21st century. From Kansas City, Missouri please welcome our newest slap bass boss, DJN8.

Always rockin' the funky beats and bringing a little bit of the blues back with style, you'll never find DJN8 too far from his guitar. After laying down the silk lining with smooth licks and a little slap and tug on the strings he embroiders it with the freshest in Glitch-Hop sound design and Ghetto-Funk breaks. All this live at every show and somehow someone always seems to jump out of the woodwork and bust out a saxophone... You just can't stop this kind of Funk from spreading. With vibes like these it's no wonder he's already been playing with the likes of Big Gigantic and Krooked Drivers to name a couple from this year. Be on the lookout, because this Funk is coming for you.

His new EP, The Onset starts off real slow with a little Glitchabilly/Blue Grass number by the name of 'Mars Man' that picks up about half way through with a sly sax and some funky bass manipulations. This slows back down again for the opening of 'Ninja' with some sultry pedal action that builds into some 70's porn licks over a smooth ocean cruising vibe before dropping the funky shit all over it. Finally, 'Realm' takes an atmospheric odyssey down the beach with a mix of Vaporwave vibes and creamy instrumentals to finish it off right. If you've been looking for some more of that velvet smooth Funk to get down to, then this EP has definitely got you covered.
