“In June 2016 MORE BOUNCE started as a monthly party in Amsterdam that focusses on Modern/Future Funk and 70’s/80’s Boogie Funk.
From there they’ve grown into a platform for today’s Funk-scene where they invited people like MXXWLL, Pomrad, Trian Kayhatu, Sven Atterton and others to perform live-shows at their nights.

‘Feeding U New Knocks Vol.1’ is the first compilation in a brand-new series with the aim of shedding more light on this thriving movement.
We would like to thank all the amazing artists that contributed their magic to this compilation!”
