”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.
They 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 & The Gers, followed by a full-length 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 lot of sequins. The sweat generated by their concerts has covered many dancefloors all over France and still does today.
UN SYSTÈME GÉNIAL
It has become a rare occurrence, but all the more welcome that the funkiest band in the Grand Est region has taken the time to cook up a new single to warm our hearts as the year draws to a close. This time, they collaborate with Strasbourg-based actor, songwriter, singer and musician Vizir, whose deep voice adds the frenchie flavour we’re so fond of. The resulting track is resolutely more pop, tackling the theme of love with humor.
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 GERS EP
The Fat Badger’s third release from The Fat, The Bad and The Gers EP trilogy. This deluxe record compiles both The Bad and The Gers EPs on each side of a gold coloured record inside a splendid gatefold sleeve. Released through Wax Buyers Club – March 2017 record of the month.
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.
