Off the back of a jam-packed single launch party at Frankie’s Pizza last night, Big Twisty & The Funknasty share their new single ‘Slave To The Funk’, a funk anthem which embodies everything the Twist is about: booty shakin and getting down. The track comes with an energetic video filmed around Wollongong/Kiama, NSW.
Big Twisty & The Funknasty are arguably one of the hottest upcoming funk/hiphop act in Australia right now. Whipping crowds into a funk frenzy across the country with their explosive, 10-person live show, they are here to open up your mind, free your body and have a funkin’ good time.
Produced by Jack Nigro at The Grove studios, ‘Slave To The Funk’ is a fusion of old school funk and 90’s Hiphop with huge singalong chants, brain busting bass riffs, soulful organ, and an aggressive rap flow. This song speaks to how you can’t escape the funk no matter how hard you try, so surrender your body and get those hips shaking.
Since the formation of the band in 2019, Big Twisty & The Funknasty have wasted no time in developing their live act, appearing on numerous support tours with the likes of Dune Rats, the Vanns and Ocean Alley. Following the release of ‘King Is Back’, ‘Pickup Truck’ and ‘Pussycat’, the crew took off on their own headline tours supporting each single and selling out all shows across the east coast of Australia. Big Twisty & The Funknasty are no strangers to the big stage, having played Yours and Owls festival and Beyond the City.
