Debut release "Strange People" was the first bullet point on his manifesto, which BBC 6Music's Tom Robinson called “an immaculate, beautiful, grooving track that we really ought to pass on to Craig Charles...”.
After making a point of leaning left with the "Stand Up & Be Recognised!" EP on May Day, his next release "Christmas In July" - lampooning the increasingly early onset of forced festive spending - further established Wilsoni Tha’ Funk Masta‘s identity as a true Funk soldier, moving people’s asses as well as their hearts and minds.
The music exhibits Wilsoni’s one-man mission as a groove generator (with a few featured comrades), channelling the funk through the spectrum of hip-hop, dub and jazz in true purple fashion as a producer, writer, engineer and multi instrumentalist.
From a small part of the Scottish Borders, once put on the map by ‘80s funk-folk clansman Jesse Rae, Wilsoni was digging on Jamiroquai, James Brown and P-Funk whilst his classmates drilled the standard Indie hits of the day. From wandering Glasgow’s guitar-based wilderness and then discovering London had lost its Acid Jazz, Wisoni's back in "Auld Reekie" Edinburgh - where he's trying to figure out the world from his “sanctuary of stank”.
In an age of political disaffection, economic hardship, and superficial greed (not unlike the ‘70s), George Clinton’s gospel permeates Wilsoni’s quest to be “the Jam Hard Vanguard”, reminding people that the funk is relevant in the 21st Century!
