Balearic Beats – Share & Chill with Friends.

Behind the Scenes

Urban Phunk Society's writing room is located in a lively district of Munich. It is only a few steps away from the legendary Bavaria Music Studios on Schornstrasse. Shops, bars, cafés, and bistros are in the neighborhood. Community meeting points in this district are the Munich Guitar Company, MJ Guitars, M2 Music 2nd Hand, and many master craftsmen shops for classical musical instruments.

The connection to the local transport network is ideal, the distances to the Munich city center, the Isar river, and the Englischer Garten are short. Located some 50 kilometres north of the Bavarian Alps, Munich is also known for its architecture, museums, and culture.

 

Studio Gear

The writing room consists of a hardware setup and a production desk with a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) and editing software. Today, Ableton Live and Reason Studio are at the heart of the production. There is a growing sound library and a selection of high-quality pro audio plugins. First class studio monitors, audio interfaces as well as various MIDI controllers are available for recording, editing, and mixing.

Sound Philosophy

The music of Urban Phunk Society is influenced by Balearic chillout and lounge culture. The ideal tune is characterized by acoustically sounding, lively beats with a tendency towards classic synthesizer and sampler sound design, supplemented by hypnotic percussion loop elements. The composition should not appear too dense and complex, but open and airy.

Sketched melody lines result from the harmonious interplay of guitars, electric pianos, and analog synthesizers. And even though it's a state-of-the-art digital production, if you listen very carefully, there always seems to be a vinyl crackle somewhere in the background.

 

Inspiration

Music in all its manifestations and its volatility is one of the great treasures of this world. Over the years, we have been inspired and motivated by the creative work of countless artists and producers from a wide variety of genres such as Chillout, Lounge, Jazz, R'n'B, and Britpop. Too many to list here, but we'd like to say thank you for the music!
