The radio broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without interruption. We have not established an broadcasting schedule. So you will hear on the airwaves, a non-stop show subtly mixing the different musical FUNK genres. We focus on the titles selection, their programming their sound quality.

Ready for a FUNKTASTIC music experience? Do not search anymore. The creme of FUNK is here and nowhere else. Listen, enjoy, share, come back, talk about it! ...

"The Get Down"!

"Old school" rap is the ancestor of modern rap and hip-hop. It all begun back in the days in 1978, and we invite you to (re) discover most of those classics of that period (1978 to 1984), but also to listen to many unknown Rap tracks, that were too difficult to purchase at that time.
You can listen here to; Afrika Bambaataa, C.C. Crew, Camelot II, Captain Sky, Count Coolout, Doctor Ice, Doug E. Fresh, Grandmaster Flash, Grandmaster Melle Mel, Jimmy Spicer, Kurtis Blow, Master Jay, Phase II, Spoonie Gee, The Disco Four, The Treacherous Three, Warp 9, Lady B and other lost treasures...and, as an evidence, the fabulous SUGAR HILL records back catalogue is also programmed on our waves.

To relive the genesis of Hip-Hop culture watch The Get Down SERIES sur Netflix.

The Masterfunk family, an active FUNK Community.

The Masterfunk Family.

The MasterFunk Familly is a concept that dates back to the early 1980s (in local area NANCY), and the emergence of free radio in France. MasterFfunk was originally a radio program hosted by Mike Mini, which came back from the ashes thanks to BMC on the air as internet program since 2015 .

MasterFunk is also a collective that gravitates in the musical world , including through the International Music Academy of Nancy, but also in art and Hip-Hop culture .

The Funklopedik Masters Series, a BMC-radio program highlighting discographic retrospectives of artist

Sound retrospectives on Artists and groups

BMC aims to discover through the programmed titles, majors artists and Funk groups discography, but also to highlight those lesser-known artists, for which we believe it' s time to give them spotlight, and show respect for their contributions. A work of sound memory, in a way.

Per exemple, we already highlighted the discographies of: Cameo, Bohannon, Foxy, The Reddings, Larry Graham, ... Prince

Born in the late 1970s, GoGo music is a subgenre of FUNK music; founder of the go-go music is the musician Chuck Brown

Say What ? (Gogo lexicon term)

Go-Go is a specific sub-musical FUNK gender, very percussive and limited to the area of Washington D.C. Go-Go music is traditionnaly played live, in public.

If you love bass, percussion, repetitive rhythms, congos, timbales/roto-toms, drums, cowbell, keyboards, bass and lead guitar and enchanting chorus...well, that is Gogo music: stay on BMC , and hear the artists of this historical musical movement such as Chuck Brown, Trouble Funk, Experience Unilimited, Mass Extension, but also Northeast Groovers, Optymistic Tribe, Rare Essence...and many of the local scene in Washington

With Gogo, the music beat never stops but keeps going on and on.

Saturdays programs of BMC-Radio are dancefloor oriented with Disco-Funk titles. Dance with your free radio from 22 h until early sunday morning.

BMC is also DISCO-FUNK on saturdays

"Thanks God it's Friday!",.. as in the heyday of early Disco days in 1975 , it's time to go to the " Boogie Palace" and to have a damned good time dancing.

On Saturday we offer you to listen to more dance oriented tracks, playing some very rare pieces frop our collection that we usually classify on our part as "Obscure Disco" or " Disco unlikely" styles, plus also titles from the early 1973/1974 years which at the time were not stamped Disco but witch finally are an evolution of funk.

ON week-ends: It's "Party Time"on BMC radio!

BMC-FUNKLOPEDIK radio broadcast the catalogs of legendary record companies such as PRELUDE, SOLAR, TABU, SUGARHILL, P.I.R RECORDS.

Legendary imprint labels are on  BMC !

BMC also highlights the back catalogs of the most iconic Funk and Groove-Funk record labels from New York City and from the U.S. These records co. have been the most influential in funk history.

So be happy, you can listen to them now, and find back titles from the catalogs that became essentials thru the decades such as SALSOUL, PRELUDE, WEST-END, SOLAR, TABU and of course MOTOWN and PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL.

African funk exist. In countries like Nigeria, Ghana, musicians playing funk-african, soul-african, even disco-african were frequent in the seventies and heigties

BMC's African FUNK!

Since the start of the 2017 academic year, we thought that including in our program the best of African funk and soul was an evidence. Finally few know it, but African continent, and more particularly certain countries such as Nigeria and Ghana have seen the birth of recordings worthy of the greatest soul and funk grooves .

Listen regularly to our "African Funk" sequences, find back Steve BLACK, The FUNKEES, BLO, Joe KEMPFA, Geraldo PINO and get back the origins of black music, get back to MOTHER AFRICA. You might be surprised. This is a BMC-EXCLUSIVITY, and we are proud of it ...

the ICEMOSIS movie picture project

"ICEMOSIS" what is this ?

Imagine a movie about the history of the group CAMEO ? His training through his first recordings, signing the contract with a major and his first concerts ? A short film about the history of the ... FUNK and CAMEO .

Well , this is the ICEMOSIS project, initiated by Nate C. Williams, and we fervently hope that it will succeed. Therefore, here we support him for years. You can according to our programming hear three tracks recorded by the fictional band, but actually composed and performed by none other than Tomi Jenkins himself !!!

About the BMC radio team:

Back in time ... In fact we all met around 1980, through our growing passion ... FUNK music. We all three also participated in the birth of several French "Pirate" free radios in the area of Nancy in the 1980s (Vitamin '101, Agora Fm, to name a few...), and it is also there that the fell of Mike for FM radio was born. He then worked for the national french NRJ Group in Nancy for more than 15 years.

Bernard, originally officiated as a D.J. in a well known club in NANCY (Le Kent) and has been for a long time in the circle of record stores, independent (Orpheus Music) or as a collaborator around the grand Est area (Le Hall Du Livre, Nuggets Nancy).

As for Laurent, although professionally he moved toward a complete different horizon, his musical passion has always been there and exponential. It was the start of collecting vinyls with fury !

So when in 2008, a belgium start-up, based in Brussels, launched its project, we immediately contacted them and submited the project of our BMC radio. BMC radio was one of the first radio to be accepted on that platform, and the adventure started. Since, we have occured changes, we have evolved, change our streaming provider, but we are proud to share all these funky grooves all thru the world thanks to our radio, and for free and without any advertising on air.

 Our studios:

Our stream is broadcasted via Toronto Cast based servers in CANADA, and so is legaly covered by authors copyrights thru SOCAN

 

The Funk ingredients:
