2016 News Roundup

Beats by Mink-C

Looking for a funky beat or to hear the odd new song or two while waiting for the next LP? Go to http://www.soundcloud.com/minkc to check the latest beats from the studio of the minkster!

Okay, so most beats are entries in the esteemed StonesThrow beat battle, but they (nearly) all have the sort of funk you would expect

Black Gestapo Update

The delay in the BG EP is due to some extra joints being recorded. I still hope it can evolve into a full length LP, so won’t make any promises on a date but believe me when I say it will be worth the wait…

Mink-C on the Mic

2016 continues to be busy. Aside from some new joints featured on my ‘beats’ site (see above) like ‘Mink-C Is…An Emotional Man’, ‘Kickstarter’ and ‘Stronger’, I am working on a concept album based loosely on an autobiography concept as well as refining one or two oldie-but-goodie joints which will be released on iTunes on full commercial release. The latter may not be until 2017 but I will keep you posted.

Prince RIP

Not one for sentimentality, as you all know…but have to take time out to say RIP to the most talented musician of my lifetime. Truly an inspiration for us all when it comes to making music. He will be missed greatly.

Keep checking back for more updates.

Brand New Mink-C Album Out Now!

It’s been a long time coming, but it’s here!

‘Welsh Larry Blackmon’ is my first long player for a while and I hope you enjoy it. At 14 tracks and clocking in at 52 minutes, I’d like to think it has something for all the family. For those cold winter nights cuddled up with your lover, sipping a glass of wine in front of the fire what could be better to heighten the mood than the gentle sounds of ‘Fritzl of Love’ or ‘Shits Real Funky’? Taking the kids to school in your 4×4? All kids will love to get their groove on to ‘Ain’t No Party’! Your momma needing a bit of excitement in her life? Tell her to whip out the dildo and put ‘Welsh Larry Blackmon’ on in the headphones? Nothing will get that grass cut quicker than your dad funking out to ‘In It For The Money’ while pushing the mower. Your bitch left you? Wallow in my misery by listening to ‘On My Own’.

Whatever the occasion, this album should hit the spot.

And if you don’t feel it? Well, you can always go to iTunes and pay a load of cash for some insipid commercial shit. The choice is yours….


Limited Edition CD Pressing of ‘Welsh Ninjitsu’ Available

I am ordering an initial limited-run CD pressing of the new ‘Welsh Ninjitsu’ album. This will be a professional, shrink-wrapped pressing with full colour artwork and liner notes and high-quality audio.

As the album is free of charge to download, I will only be asking for a paypal transfer to cover the cost of pressing and postage of £5.

To order a copy, please use the ‘Contact’ tab on the home screen to send me a mail and please remember to include your full postal address. I will then let you know the paypal account to transfer the fiver to and confirm your order.
