Vulfpeck Brings “Centering Fugue” Back To Life, Releases New Video About Minimalist Funk

first_imgVulfpeck is a band of no rules. Famous for their Internet banter, off-the-wall videos, and minimalist funk arrangements, Vulfpeck maintains their “low volume” status with every piece of work they release. After a relatively long stretch (by their own measures) of content silence, Vulfpeck returned over the weekend with two new videos, “Centering Fugue” and “HOLY TRINITIES /// Minimalist Funk Arrangers.”Vulfpeck’s first viral success came from their Sleepify efforts in 2014, when the band told their fans to play the silent album via Spotify on repeat while sleeping so the band could earn enough royalty money to fund a mini-tour. In 2016, Vulfpeck introduced Flow State as a new plan to get fans paid for attending their shows. With the release of Flow State, which the band noted was the resonant frequency of planet Earth, fans were compensated for streaming the track and attending a show in Chicago. Coupled with this unique release was “Centering Fugue,” a less-talked-about track that also has mysterious powers over the human mind. The Flow State album was taken down several months later with no explanation. Over the weekend, “Centering Fugue” returned to all streaming services and with its own Vulf-y video. Check it out:In another new video, presented by Goodhertz, bandleader Jack Stratton details the holy trinities of minimal funk arrangers with a lesson on Alfonso “Fonce” Mizell, who penned the bass melody of “I Want You Back;” Wardell Quezergue aka the “Creole Beethoven,” who wrote “Mr. Big Stuff;” and Reinhold Mack who invented the bass line of “Another One Bites The Dust.” Jack Stratton then announces himself as the first-ever 4th member of the Trinity, and Rick Rubin as the honorable mention. Enjoy:Vulfpeck has a few dates left in the U.S. before they head over to Europe for an impressive number of sold-out shows. Check out the band’s website for more information.last_img
