 Method Funk, 2nd Single from the upcoming album CELEBRATION.

Mix by world known Dj and artist  Peter Opolopo Major.

Horns edited by  Mattias Bylund, known for his work with Max Martin.


The song was influenced by old school funk band Fatback and British soul, most notably Brand New Heavies, but with the real Swedish M-Rock, Wefunky and Stonefunkers sound.


The song features Swedish soul sensation Johanna Hjort, and long time companion:  singer and percussion player Gonzalo Gonzo Reyes.


Some people call him Sweden’s George Clinton, the king of Funk from Sweden

Some people call him crazy

Some people call him legend of funk and skateboarding.

He’s one of a kind, troglodyte Funk master M-Rock with his Wefunky Band

M-Rock & Wefunky band play their own material, Stonefunkers classics and their own interpretations of golden hits from disco, funk, soul and hip-hop.

M-Rock, with his band Stonefunkers, became pioneers in Sweden for funk and 

hip hop, and has inspired many of today's active artists. 

Stonefunkers had an exceptional Swedish and international career. Several

times the band was named Sweden's best live band for its energy and stage 

presence.

M-Rock & Wefunky bands follow this tradition to 100%, but tops off

immense musical virtuosity and luminosity to create one hell of a party!

Emrik M-Rock Larsson started out as a singer and bandleader of the powerhouse Swedish funk-hip-hop band Stonefunkers. They started their funk mission in 1988 with the single Turn it up. They released five albums, including the hit singles M-Rock theory, Can u follow, Funkadeena. The band toured around Europe for more than ten years and made a great impact on the Swedish funk and dance scene. Stonefunkers  were considered Sweden’s no 1 live band for many years. After a break up in 2001, Emrik made 4 albums in Swedish, the most successful being Lögnhalsen (2006). In 2010 Stonefunkers briefly reunited and Emrik got back to his funk roots. He first released the Funk Rock album AIRBORNE influenced by his skateboarding past. In 2014 M-ROCK & Wefunky Band  released their first funk album PHUNK OBSERVATORY; an album filled with funk, disco, boogie and hip-hop. 2016 the focus on heavy funk and groove was even more present with the release of THE COSMIC PHUNK SAGA CONTINUES. From 2017 to 2020 M-Rock released singles such as America, Party Zone and Staden vi älskar.  2021 M-Rock & Wefunky Band return with a full length album CELEBRATION. First up is the single Tenderness . M-Rock also works together with The Silvertwins of Funk Spotify Silvertwins of Funk

Here’s what funk man Jan Lumholdt says about the upcoming album:


Wefunky, youfunky, mefunky… George, Sly, James, Roger, Bootsy, Larry, even some Quincy… Shake n’ stir, soft, mellow, go-go, never so-so, always on the 1. Band tight, tasteful (lovely horns), leaving nothing or anything not to like here (check the instrumentals for more). 30+ years and counting since M-Rock L Supremo hit the scene. Here’s to the next 30 – see you down the road. 😎
