Electronic Sounds via Analog Instruments: Getting Funky with Telephunken

There isn’t, unfortunately, much known about Telephunken, the Funk/Electronic trio featuring Ernesto “DJ Telephunken” Sanchez, bassist/VJ Sergio Zamavirde and drummer Fernando Parrilla.

The trio was once an Indie-Pop group from Zaragoza who later moved to Madrid and morphed into a Latin-Funk-Dance machine. The group has a handful of releases most notably Antibalas and Que Viva El Ritmo!!! Other than that, there’s not much else. I’ll have to pin Sanchez down in Madrid to learn more.

Watch the band’s short documentary on their trip to SXSW 2010:

Listen to “Shake Your Monkey:”

Ballin'!

Sanchez also creates some killer mixes blending Hip-Hop, Funk, Rock and Jazz such as:
