In 'Backwards,' Funk unveils his avant-garde approach to music production, crafting a sonic experience that transcends conventional boundaries. Originating serendipitously within the intimate confines of his home studio, this standout track was born from an accidental keystroke, laying the foundation for its soulful intro and rhythmic heartbeat.

Drawing from the essence of Post-Punk, New Wave, and Alternative genres spanning the late 70s to early 90s, Funk aspires to encapsulate that era's creative vitality while pushing boundaries toward the future.

'Backwards' stands as a bold declaration of this forward trajectory, offering a glimpse into the musical brilliance awaiting within 'Sugarfixx.'
