Tre-Funk III is a group born in the hip hop scene of Tampere and formed by three widely acknowledged rappers and producers Haamu, Hannibal, and 6mäki. While it’s definitely not just another rap group but a personal break for each one of them, this probably explains the best way the open-minded and imaginative output which has impressed so many people. While each one in this trio has made their mark earlier with clear influences from the 1970’s black rhythm music, we can bet you haven’t heard anything this funky in the Finnish rap scene before.
Tre-Funk III released their debut album Planet Funk in October 2016. It has been praised because of its authentic sound based on funk music and synthesizers as well as because the exceptionally good chemistry between the rappers. All this of course adapts extremely well to this occasion at the Funky Elephant! Briefly put, Tre-Funk III is a musical trip with a super-smooth funk twist and ready to stun you with its weird psychedelic hip hop vibe. Just free your mind… and your ass will follow!
