Klozd Sirkut shows a deep love of the groove, offering an inspired and refreshing take on funk and electronic music. Led by longtime Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe trumpet maven Chris Littlefield, the Seattle-based electro-funk quartet is taking off to untold galaxies, earning new fans constantly with their relentless dancefloor escapades. Along with Littlefield, the band includes the extremely inventive Papa Josh, who fronts the band as its guitarist and bass player, programs beats, and acts as a hub for impressive looping among the musicians. Drummer Davee C is “The Groove Merchant” — a renowned funk and reggae player from the PacNW who is similarly well established as a DJ in the scene. Keyboard player Joey Walbaum is the glue that holds Klozd Sirkut together, providing textures and sweet vocals atop the mix.
Today, Live For Live Music is proud to premiere Klozd Sirkut’s robust new single “Settle Down.” The song features a gigantic low-end groove motor that recalls Bootsy Collins and Zapp, while also ushering in sexy electronic vibes that are a leap into the future. Check it out for yourself below. You can also catch Klozd Sirkut during one of their regular tours of the West Coast, which go down a few times each year. Plans are underway for the band to venture further; now, with a record in the pipeline and this bangin’ new single “Settle Down,” the future looks to be blinding for this funky fearsome foursome. Klozd Sirkut will be hosting a record release party tomorrow on Saturday, July 1st, at High Dive in Seattle, Washington, with DJ Logic also featured on the bill.
