funkadelic have created an enduring legacy. and the power of their impact is visceral in detroit. their records not only played with genre. but possessed a diabolical sense of humour that led to music domination by the late 70s with parliament. funkadelic. parlet. bootsy’s rubber band and the brides of funkenstein all releasing albums the same year for two years in a row. the music itself is beyond stereotype. but equally huge is that they were a black band not allowing themselves to be limited by anyone else’s notions of who they could be. having a massive impact on the next generation of detroit music. detroit techno. but more than just techno. it is a freedom of thinking that extends beyond boxes. so we included all sorts of today s generation of detroit musicians and producers to show the wide range of music that was funkadelic and how these ideas are still contemporary. they endure and inspire.
