Sly5thAve X Uptown Funk!

Sly5thAve - Uptown Funk

DJ Center and Sly5thAve recently came together in the studio to bring home this dancefloor bomb featuring the ClubCasa Chamber Orchestra! Not new to giving popular songs new lives of their own, Sly5thAve has created incredible orchestral arrangements of Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, J.Cole and Major Lazer numbers, to name a few.

This new version of Mark Ronson & Bruno Mar’s Uptown Funk is an Afro-Latin/Brazilian uptempo bullet aimed straight at any dancefloor worldwide! Don’t believe us, just watch!

Pre-order the limited edition 7″ color vinyl on Kooyman Records here.
