«It’s like these guys were born cool». Strasbourg-based electro-funk band The Fat Badgers have been around on BMM Records since day one, and is still without a doubt the label’s funkiest act.
The band is lead by prolific producer and keyboardist Leopard DaVinci, features Tasty Boubou on the bass, King Revel aka FLUPKE on the guitar and Skeuv L’Anguille on the drums.
The four madcap musicians started cooking tasty funk tunes in 2012, filled with glittering french touch elements. Since then they have released a trilogy of EPs, The Fat, The Bad and The Gers, followed by a full-length studio album titled Soul Train, in tribute to the 70’s televised show.
They have integrated the Soul Train concept to their live shows with a simple trick: a dance carpet splitting the crowd in half, shiny disco balls and a whole lot of sequins. The sweat generated by their concerts has covered many dancefloors all over France.
Who’s Got The Funk ?
Badgers Can Bite
Cause I Never
The first studio album from the craziest electro-funk band, a sparkling blast of shiny p-funk and nu disco jams. This double LP will cover any dancefloors with sweat and glitter.

THE FAT EP
The Fat Badger’s first release from The Fat, The Bad and The Gers trilogy. Recorded after two intense years of touring, The Fat EP marks the band’s first official studio album, an explosive mixture of p-funk, disco and electro that never fails to set the dancefloor on fire.
