Some UK press for "Funked Up and Freaked Out" :

DJ Mag: ’an outstanding funky challenge to the stadium masses’

DJ Freddy Fresh: ’funky as hell kids’

No 1 N.M.E. Club Guide Chart

Express: ’This inspired EP should be a must for all with a passion for solid stonking beats and an infectious groove’

The Wire: ’Kava frontman Pat Fulgoni is larger than life. Almost too monumentally avid for an industry fixated on patronisable non-entities, his singing has a confrontational musicality British pop hasn’t seen since Jack Bruce.’

Wax: ’seriously screwed up funk, with remixes that are all pretty twisted and odd.....plenty of old school beats, epic proportioned strings, tidy scratches and big brass...somewhere between the dance floor and a mental asylum’

Blues & Soul : ’funky beats, jazzy flavas and rockin’ vibes’



the loudest space funk band on the planet are back with more soul and grooves than you can shake a rubber chicken at and believe me, kava kava are truly "funked up and freaked out" ........here the energy and dedication of the band’s live performances across Europe are captured on some intensely emotional studio performances.

check out tune "beats for cheats" for attitude (bonus remix here by Zion Train/Germander Speedwell)

check out "n.f.a." for an almost religious like passion. "....that voice! in their singer, kava kava possess a rare effortless instrument, a timeless soulful presence able to weave in and out of diverse sample based technologies and decades of influences..." once described as "the Jack Bruce of the e-generation" (ben watson of the wire) that’s just what it is - a timely fix of old school, soul-drenching, over washes of lush bleeps, beats, live funk and ass kicking underground grooves.

Daring, eclectic, refreshing with lush instrumentation and a full live line up ..... Kava Kava are going where many bragging dance acts claim to be via the odd bongo player .....


Kava Kava hail from Yorkshire, UK and were originally a 4 piece experimental live psychedelic funk outfit with heavy George Clinton influences! Comprising Pat Fulgoni as singer, plus playing squelchy keyboards and trumpet; Matt Bond on guitars; Jason Riley on bass and electronica and Mick Reed on drums.

As independent experimental dance exploded (labels such as Mowax, Skint and Ninja Tune) Kava Kava started messing around with new technologies and the "Freedom" single (Delerium Records) saw the band expand accordingly into a cutting edge live dance outfit - turbo-charged 6 piece space funk monster with brass section, big beats and full live funk ensemble. Originally KK cut their teeth through the underground festival/party scene, with NME describing the band as "gorgeous new psychedelic funk".

"Funked Up and Freaked Out" rose to No 1 in the NME Club Guide Chart and reveals a timely fix of old school soul influences, over washes of lush bleeps, big beats, rocked out live funk and ass kicking underground grooves. .....

The band continue to funk up clubs and festivals across France, Holland, Belgium, Hungary, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Poland, Italy.......


Yorkshire saying: "as much use as a chocolate fireguard". Chocolate Fireguard Music Ltd is an eclectic Huddersfield based independent label, with various distribution deals worldwide. It was formed in 2000 by Kava Kava’s singer Pat Fulgoni, who has worked with among others Erick Morillo’s NYC Subliminal label Emotif Records, Zion Train, Acetate, indie band Embrace, his own solo live blues album in Prague and loads of weird musical projects including a collaboration with Tony Benn MP!

Currently concentrating on developing hot new club acts The Bluefoot Project, Kava Kava, French hip hop outfit Ça and the acclaimed "Taster...Sounds From The Funky Underground" compilation series, the second volume of which was chosen for "Best of British" Virgin Megastores USA, Chocolate Fireguard are also names to watch for with their heady eclectic mix.

Chocolate Fireguard have also just released the acclaimed Kava Kava album "Maui" (also available here)

For vinyl junkies there’s limited edition samplers of both "Funked Up and Freaked Out" and "Maui" available.....
