How it started:

LIGE CURRY and RAS MANOS have met initially in july 2013 after a show of Parliament/Funkadelic in Amsterdam.

The Seed for TRANSFONKCATION was planted after an intense exchange of music and vibes…

With the priceless effort and hard work from LIGE CURRY and my friends Agios Fellekapoulakos and FLOWIN IMMO, all musicians that got involved, engineers and mixing engineer Adam Trull, the P-Funk family…iMMONOPOL studio, the Disc recording…

…made it all worth the while… of all the time it’s taken to record it due out the last year.

Gratitude, Appreciation an Love!

A unique collaboration of members of the P Funk Allstars and an illustrious group of Funkateers and Artists of the independend european Music scene became the “Funky People of Mothership Connections/F.P.O.M.C.”

TRANSFONKCATION includes Rap n Hip Hop artists as the amazing TRA´ZAE LEWIS CLINTON of Gorangutan and Parliament Funkadelic and the legendary FLOWIN IMMO (F.A.B. and many more) from Bremen/Germany.

They have been mixing up with female Soul/Rnb artist BOO BOO, who is working and collaborating with Udo Lindenberg, Sarah Connors and many more…

The vibe has been refined and completed by the amazing voices of the legendary MICHAEL “CLIP” PAYNE, GARRETT “STARCHILE jr.” SHIDER and STARR CULLARS of the P Funk Allstars and the awesome Miss KARLA STEREOCHEMISTRY from Berlin and Outtaspace!

…backed by remarkable musicians as LIGE CURRY, DANNY BEDROSIAN, BENZEL COWAN, FRANKIE “KASH” WADDY of Parliament/Funkadelic/P Funk Allstars and many more…

ERIC “SHRIZZADELIC” ROHNER of Horn Dogz/Grand Slam and many more from Paris,

RAS MANOS of C.W.Moss/Raggattacke Band and many more from Berlin & elsewhere and longtime friend and talented musician/producer Agios Fellekapoulakos/Schleck & Stecker, C.W.Moss and many more from Jena/Germany.

TRANSFONKCATION & “the funky people of Mothership Connections” sing in english, german and serbocroatian. It’s a rare multi-lingual release of the P Funk collective fusing with Funkateers from all around the World, since Bootsy´s “Fresh outta P University” (1995).
