Osaka MonaurailJapan’s hardest working funkateers, Osaka Monaurail return with a bang! The band’s latest stroke “Riptide” is Osaka Monaurail’s seventh studio album and finds the band tighter than ever. But you’ll never expect something else because those guys don’t settle with halfbaked takes – all or nothing is the maxim for already 22 years.

This is why “Riptide” pampers us with nine songs and combines the finest moments of funk, jazz and soul to a hot and extremely danceable unique sound. Osaka Monaurail keep it funky from the first note until the very end having found the perfect mixture between instrumentals and vocal tracks!

Formed in 1992, Osaka Monaurail has been keeping the funk alive in Japan with their JB inspired sound and impressive live shows for more than 20 years now. Deeply influenced by the work of James Brown, Bobby Byrd, Lyn Collins, Lee Austin, Curtis Mayfield and Isaac Hayes, the band is still on their mission of bringing authentic funk to the man, a mission that won’t last until the funk virus has infected our whole planet. Dressed sharp in tight suits, bandleader Ryo Nakata who got famous for his wild onstage dance moves and the boys deliver one hell of a show whenever the get the chance to play live. Entertainment guaranteed!
