Speedometer- New Album

Speedometer, the UK's premier funk band, started out in 1999 playing classic funk tunes by artists such as The Meters and The JB's in small clubs across the Southeast of England.

‘Our Kind of Movement’ is Speedometer's 5th album release for Freestyle (excluding two compilations of archive releases) and sees Vanessa Jamie and Najwa Ezzaher join James Junior on vocal duties.


On this album, the band re-explore their own diverse influences combining the heritage of Latin Funk in Funky Amigo, Afro Beat on Abuja Sunrise, Indian Psychedelic on Kashmir, the Northern Soul on We gave up too soon. There is, of course, a hefty dose of new heavy weight funk and soul tunes, as you would expect.


After 20 years of making funky music, this LP brings their experiences all together on one record whilst keeping the funk groove at its heart. This is Speedometer's "Kind of Movement".
