Music recorded, mixed and/or produced by Jose Juan Maldonado
Recently had the honor of playing drums with an “Old School Player from the Himilaya’s”
Mr. Perri White
So I searched my music archives and found a Jem I would like to share named “Psycho Strut”
Perri, Nate Bach (Trumpet) and Stalin Murga (Bass) were walking to the bar and I was returning and they asked…
When are we gonna play some music again? I said, Right Now!
Recorded and mixed this crazy jam that night. Hope you like it!
Funktropolis was written and recorded on the spot by Tim Pacheco and I.
Tim said, Let’s write something along the lines of Parliament Funkadelic
Tim played bass, I played drums, we recorded the rhythm section then Tim added layers of instruments: Keys, Guitar, Special Effects.
Paul Lopez of the band “Cumbia Machine” played Cowbell, Congas and Timbales
Nazareth Pratt & Tim Pacheco – Lyrics and Vocals on Funtropolis
Meen Green – Rapper on Second Song
Jose Juan Maldonado – Drums and Recording
*We did 2 songs that day and decided to join them as one.
Music featuring Drums and Percussion by Jose Juan Maldonado
While producing music for the OB Cooperative Records record label I was introduced to the amazing artist “Pato Banton” by the leader of Psydecar; Tim Pacheco. Pato was inspired by our free spirited approach to recording music and wrote the lyrics for “Stay Positive” while at the studio. We loved the song so much we brought the best musicians in to complement the song.
