How was 2017 for you?
Eli Goldstein: It took so much energy to stay positive in 2017 with all the crazy political shit in the US and violence around the world. But we managed to keep pushing forward with the funk.
Our biggest highlight was playing live with an eight-piece band including Amp Fiddler, Hazmat, The Dames Brown and Phil Celeste on the main stage at Movement Detroit. And we had lots and lots of touring to amazing places, meeting new amazing people! The Michael The Lion EP that we released on Soul Clap Records was a big highlight for our label.
The hate, racism, injustice and negativity dominating the U.S. All the horrible laws and policies that our so-called president and the Republican party pushed through.
