Bootsy Collins and Mascot Label Group Announce The Funk Garage Imprint
Bootsy Collins announced last year that he would be retiring from playing live, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t keeping busy. The funk legend has just teamed up with Mascot Label Group to announce a new imprint under the label called The Funk Garage.
“I’m so Funked up about starting this adventure with Mascot as an A&R funk/garage man,” said Collins. “[Mascot CEO Ed Van Zijl] and I share the same vision of bringing music to people with this partnership. This is only the beginning of a very personal & funked up P-Lationship to share with the World!”
The imprint’s first signing is with Bootsy’s fellow Parliament-Funkadelic and James Brown alum, saxophonist Maceo Parker. An album will be available later this year. More signings and releases will follow, but until then The Funk Garage put together a Spotify playlist of classic funk and R&B tracks that we expect will represent their clientele’s vibe.
We’ll keep you updated as more details become available.
