Taken off my first album Namaquadisco, Fung has always been one of my favorites. A weird coincidence of sounds that worked together in a bizarre way with an intro sample from one of my favorite movie of all time, Beyond The Valley of the Dolls, and a memorable Juno 106 progression.
Namaquadisco was released in the US on Sunburn Recordings and in Europe on Distance Records. Fung was one of the tracks on the 12″ titled Erections from Namaquadisco.
Recorded in the Hardkiss room at Hyde Street Studio in the Tenderloin neighborhood San Francisco in 1996, it was described by Entertainment Weekly as “a DJ bricolage …. that advances a trippy and joyous strain of American dance-floor imagineering that should give the Europeans pause.” I think that means they liked it.
