Lit&Local: Live with Aztec Sun, Bringing Funk and Fire to New EP

14955939_1247238402001202_4944903430312449899_nDC-based funk band Aztec Sun joined Local Music Director Jackie Reed, Friday, November 4th, on WGMU Radio to talk about their EP, “Set You Free”, coming out this December. The 8-piece ensemble is a coming together of multiple musical disciplines, a creative space for them to express their sound as everyday virtuosos. Their tracks go beyond the funk scene in DC; they mix soul, jazz, Motown, blues, and much more. Their harmonious lyricism combined with electric guitar lines and popped-out piano chords makes for a great listening experience. Aztec Sun is a musically adaptive collective of artists melodically embracing their talents through personable concert sessions and community events along the U Street district. Their upcoming EP will have an exciting selection of songs dedicated to the members’ various skills and talents, a physical expression of their interwoven experiences as refining artists and individuals. Prepare for a change in innovative style, something way beyond their storyline classics “Confuse Me” and “My Way Home”, a “Revolution” in musical form and level, if you will.

Below includes the clips of the live on-air interview with Aztec Sun, in addition to stripped down performances of their songs:
