In 2001, Stanton Warriors laid down a fresh new sound with the seminal 'Stanton Sessions' that was instantly signed to XL Recordings. Overnight, Stanton Warriors became the hottest producers on the planet, and today they continue to stay at the very pinnacle of their profession.
Stanton dj sets are famed for incorporating exclusive original tracks mixed with homemade edits / remixes of cutting edge sounds from underground house through to abstract hip hop and everything in between. It's all blended into a melting pot of low down booty electro punkishness, and is continually reminding the world why Stanton Warriors have remained unrivalled in their genre for more than a decade.
Made up of Frank Cueto and Rusty Belicek, the All Good Funk Alliance has opened up for the legendary James Brown, written songs for Washington Heights and constantly appear on the Breakspoll Top 50 list. In other words, these guys are no strangers to the funk. And while their musical tastes range the gamut, when Frank and Rusty join forces the end result is always the same: they deliver a sound that is funky, fun and fresh.
Since 1999, All Good Funk Alliance has released music on a host of labels, including its own heavyweights: Funk Weapons, Super Hi-Fi Recordings and Baffin Island Beat Brigade. Frank and Rusty have played at clubs and festivals around the globe—from Canada to Australia—
Recognized as influential pioneers of the Nu-Funk and mid-tempo breaks sounds, AGFA's innovation and originality has earned them universal respect across the breaks industry. Having just dropped a fresh new album of remixes brimming with hype music that encompasses multiple genres, the All Good Funk Alliance are keeping it fresh while keeping true to their roots musically.
