Play that funky music! The iconic funk- disco band is back…The Ohio Players, the funkiest band ever! With the surge in the retro sound from the 70s and 80s the masters of Funk from O-H-I-O have released RESET, which is quickly gaining on the RnB/HipHop charts, gaining on the crossover and on the way to Top Of The POPs!
Ohio Players are an American national treasure, a band that truly broke the mould and changed the face of music forever. At their heights they produced 17 Top 40 hits, with several platinum and gold selling albums, including masterpiece songs such as ‘Skin Tight’, ‘Fire’, ‘Love Rollercoaster’ and ‘Who’d She Coo?’ For the first time in almost 30 years the original Players have been back in the studio recording the new music.
The first single to drop is called ‘Reset’ and rest assured: THE FUNK IS BACK! Mature and refined and complete with that earthy timeless signature sound that made OhioPlayers international superstars. The track is big and bold; with those incredible free form rhythms, crisp horns and opening with a screeching guitar that sets the tone perfectly for a time travelling journey back into the funk – with lyrics like “somebody lied when they said funk had died” – the Players are on a mission to bring back the time when music felt real.
