Being one of the most distinctive funk projects in Athens over the last years, WFP is a musical collective that combines traditional soul-funk sounds with the modern stream of the hip-hop scene.
The band was formed in the summer of 2007 in Athens, as a jazz studying trio but the need of composing original music came up really soon, with explicit influences from the funk scene. The chemistry between Dimitris Giotakis (guitar), Kostas Stamou (bass) and Aggelos Diamantopoulos (drums) along with their particular music style, soon led to the first successful live performances and established them to the daily musical life.
After Dimitris’ retirement on February 2010, for personal reasons, many changes have been made both in the lineup and the genre orientation. Eventually, the band reaches its current form with the addition of Nikos Martziokas (percussion), Stamatis Lekatis (keys & programming), Billa Qause (beatmaking & scratches) and Tasos Katsaris (tenor sax & wind controller)
Together, they will complete the recording of their debut single "From Scratch", which was released in a limited edition of 7inch vinyl by Under A Groove, on March 18th, 2014.
The collaboration with guest artists at their live shows, is reflected in their new album, whose recordings start at the end of 2015 and is expected to be released in 2016
