“Resistance” is a 2018 Funk odyssey by keyboard maestro, vocalist, composer, producer, arranger and astral traveller Brandon Coleman. A regular fixture in the Kamasi Washington band, he is introduced onstage at gigs as “Professor Boogie” by his longtime friend and collaborator.
“Resistance” represents a new chapter in the Funk dynasty that spans George Clinton / Parliament Funkadelic and Zapp through to Dr. Dre, DJ Quik and Dam Funk as the Los Angeles resident salutes his musical heroes - Herbie Hancock, Peter Frampton, Roger Troutman.
It is fitting that “Resistance” should arrive on the imprint founded by Flying Lotus - a perpetual free-thinker and champion of genreexploding. The pair have subsequently worked together on music for Bladerunner, FlyLo’s directorial debut Kuso. Brandon plays on “Until The Quiet Comes” and “You’re Dead!” too.
