With releases on labels such as Chicago’s Flapjack Recordings and Detroit’s Coyote Cuts, the Corduroy Mavericks have been bringing it hard with their unique brand of House music. A Kentucky based group, known for their funky, sample-rich productions have been on many house head’s radar ever since their inception in 2005. Their latest hit “Stop Before You Start” off of the “Just Gotta Have it” album has been recognized by DJs and fans alike, resulting in high ranks on the hottest music charts. Stompy, Beatport and Traxsource have featured their recent releases and they are seeing some massive recognition. With “Stop Before you Start” already topping charts, Corduroy Mavericks are well on their way to a successful 2013. The smooth, Latin swing of the track makes it a rhythmic dream for dancing, and the vocal brings together a melody that sits just right. Check it out here.

Countless labels have taken notice of the Corduroy Mavericks, Labels like: Dufflebag, Beatdown, Juiced, Funk Mansion, Alphabet, CHFM and Native Soul have harvested the Mavericks’ tracks and there is no sign of that slowing down. In early March, the “Subtle Innuendos EP” was released and has been charting quite nicely as well with standout tracks “Submotion” and “Gangsta Love”. Check them out here.

Keeping it funky. That’s what it’s all about, and that’s what the Corduroy Mavericks do best. It’s a refreshing vein of house music, with a deliberate snap, and a funk that is infused on a primal level. It’s music you could trick your friend who knows nothing about music to dance to, but still maintain your musical integrity in the process, if that makes any sense… The Corduroy Mavericks are no stranger to banging out quality music, and we at DetroitTechnoHouse are excited to see what the future holds for the alternative to denim. Give them a listen, and just try not to dance.
