Many of you may believe that Fur Coat is a new act on the scene, in actual fact this is far from true. Even before the Venezuelan pair met at a house party in their native Caracas in 2004, Israel Sunshine was carving a unique niche as a DJ, and Sergio Muñoz was following his own path and bringing his own unique sound to the table (under the Delete alias) for numerous labels
Now they are “looked after” by Damian Lazarus, who has essentially plucked the duo from Latin American obscurity and given them a platform on his world renown Crosstown Rebels label. It was the duo’s blending of live vocals, serious grooves and a heavily funk indebted sound which had Lazarus snap them up.
“Our music is mostly for the dancefloor” say the pair of their output so far. “We consider ourselves to be making some sort of Space Funk. Our main influences are house and techno, but we add our own twist so though stuff works on the dancefloor, it’s also deep, funky, trippy and hopefully delivers some sort of story to the listener.”
