California Funk Machine – Volume 2

CFMVolume2California Funk Machine is not just another tribute band. California Funk Machine is not just a collection of music. California Funk Machine is a concept, a style, a coming together of like minded musical brethren to breath new life into some of the hottest Funk, Disco, Soul and Jazz Funk classics of the 70’s and 80’s.

The driving force behind what is envisaged to be a series of volumes is none other than Billboard chart topping artist, platinum producer and multi instrumentalist Emmanuel “U-Nam” Abiteboul who, since moving to Los Angeles from his native Paris, France in 2008, has built a reputation for knowing Funk like no one else knows Funk.

His contribution to California Funk Machine reaches far and wide.  As well as arranging both horns and strings, U-Nam also produces and arranges the entire album.  In addition he provides his own virtuoso input with lead and rhythm guitars, talk box, vocoder, lead and background vocals, rap vocals, bass, moog bass, rhodes, clavinet, synth guitar, keyboards, drums, editing & mixing. It places him front back and center of the entire enterprise that includes a plethora of outstanding supporting artists, including some who, back in the 70’s and 80’s, were responsible for creating some of the music that California Funk Machine is now reigniting.
