Raw street funk on one side, with sweet soul on the other – Lexsoul Dancemachine is a 6-man groove band known for tearing venues apart with their stage presence. Active since 2013, the aim of the machine is to hypnotize feel-good music lovers with thumping bass lines, syncopated rhythms, repetitive grooves and soulful vocals. It’s the kind of music you can break dance to, although in between those hard-hitting sounds you’ll find some more tender grooves.
December 2015 saw Lexsoul Dancemachine self-release their debut album after a successful kick-starter campaign. Deus Lex Machina was put out on vinyl, CD and digitally. 2016 was filled with live gigs in the Baltic-Nordic region, including Tallinn Music Week, Positivus, Funky Elephant and Pori Jazz Festival in Finland.
After making a big local splash with the record, the band broke the international level courtesy of a 5-star review from monkeyboxing.com, an UK blog with an appetite for the Funk. From there on, it was picked up by Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on BBC 6 and BBC 2 with singles “Beef Grinder” and “Coconuts” on the rotation ever since.
