Say hello to Opolopo’s mutants! With this release, mad funk scientist Opolopo finally opens the doors to his private zoo of mutant pets. Exposed to sonic radiation and mutagenic chemicals, their DNA sequences have been seriously funkafied for ultimate effectiveness. Some of these creatures you might have already encountered. Others were let out of quarantine especially for this release. And some are about to become your new best friends.

The fearless vocalists taking part in these sonically advanced experiments in groove mutation include the first lady of modern funk, Amalia, R&B multitalent Colonel Red, Tupac songwriter Erik Rico, Mathew Herbert collaborator Eska, Grammy-nominee Gregory Porter, French soul superstar Sly Johnson, hip hop hall of famer Talib Kweli, spoken word queen Ursula Rucker and many others. Time to get your mutant on!
