Exclusive: Funk Initiative Publish Video for 'My Robot Monkey Army is Better Than Yours'Written by Marc Calleja Bayliss
Six people with different ideas who were brought together through that one common initiative, that which represents music. The very element in itself seems to have become one of the more positive aspects that Malta as a country can offer noting that our success within the field has been recorded throughout the past couple of years with musical exports such as Airport Impressions, Joseph Calleja, Ira Losco, Carrie Haber, Kevin Borg, Red Electrick, Tribali, Wintermoods and others continuously marking a reputation which one should be honoured to have. escflashmalta.com has been proud to help promote local acts in the past couple of weeks, months and years and today will be no different noting that the editorial board has been entrusted with the exclusivity for the single and video of the track My Robot Monkey is Better Than Yours, the latest single by Funk Initiative.
There is belief, talent and dedication in each of the six members of Funk Initiative who are of course Gianluca Bezzina (Vocals), Paul Torpiano (Keyboards / Backing Vocalist), Daniel Cassar (Guitar), Fabian Bonello (Saxophone / Tambourine), Daniel Buttigieg (Drums / Percussion) and Shaun Abdilla (Bass Guitar). There accolades in the past three years have continues to grow and 2011 seems to have been the year not to mess with them noting respective nominations for best upcoming talent at both the Bay Music Awards and the Malta Music Awards respectively. Despite the fact that they did not win, the music they releases thus far has been beyond amazing noting the difference of genres when it came to their debut single Paris and then the sophomore release The Liberators. This time round, they have decided to keep their explicit funk and create an extremely cool video which features a number of diverse locations around the country. I do not want to tell you anything else about it though because we would like you to judge it for yourselves. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more exclusives in the comings days and weeks.
