Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry Benitio - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk comes all the way from #Sydney in the form of paste wrangler Monstery and Me .
Man, I love stickers more than I love hot potatoes. They’re magic little things, and the people that make ‘em are all kinds of awesome - just like Shu, who is today’s Monger of Funk. I’ve been a fan of her work for ages, and I wanted to feature her this week ‘cos she’s been consistently rolling out the funk like a bag of sausage rolls. Shu has been trying to keep the #monsteries under control for too long, and they’ve taken over in the form of stickers and paste-ups left, right and centre all over the gaff. I live a few thousand miles too far away to see any of her #monsteries knocking around in the flesh, but I imagine it’s only gonna be a matter of time until they swing by the UK for a massive round of toast and an orange Calippo. Maybe even a yellow Calippo. Green Calippos are good too if you can find ‘em. One thing I love about Shu’s work is the funk that comes out of the numerous collaborations she does with other artists - there are some awesome mashups with @arrexskulls , @sleepisfamous and @Shroomone to name just a few. They are crazier than a basket of baskets, so make sure you scope em out. Don’t take my humble word for it though - go and check it out for yourself. Go now you rascal, vamos - she’s up to all kinds of funk!
