What they say…
Fitzroy Da Buzzboy (Soul Survivors magazine)
The Impellers are a 12 piece powerhouse from Brighton, UK, bringing together influences including soul, deep funk, latin, afrobeat, and hip hop production, with pounding instrumental tracks and lyrically strong vocal tracks. The band’s first full album “Robot Legs” was released on UK independent label Freestyle Records in 2009 and featured a guest appearance from DJ and latin percussion legend Snowboy. The second outing “This Is Not A Drill” made waves in 2012 and was playlisted across Europe. May 2014 saw the release of their third album, entitled “My Certainty”, which firmly confirmed The Impellers as one of the strongest funk outfits of the planet.
Since the release of their first album in 2009, The Impellers have been busy touring across the UK, Netherlands, Spain, France and elsewhere. They have shared stages with some of the finest funk, soul, hip-hop, jazz and scratch DJ talent from around the world.
