Today is a great day to be a fan of the FUNK.
An enormous international collaboration was released yesterday featuring two of the biggest names in the mid-tempo, funk-filled, bass-heavy breaks scene. Canadian heavyweights, The Funk Hunters, teamed up with German funk fanatics, CMC & Silenta, to create one of the biggest party-startin’, floor-smashin’ hits of the year. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the massive tune features vocals from one of the greatest voices in hip-hop, Chali 2na (founder of Jurassic 5).
Melding multiple genres with remarkable ease and brilliant precision, the finished product fuses ingredients of hip-hop, breaks, funk and big, bodacious, bass to create one of the tastiest tunes we’ve come across in a long while.
We know you’ll be satisfied but there’s a good chance the original will leave you salivating for more. Thankfully The Funk Hunters cooked up a kickin’ VIP CLUB MIX equipped with bigger build ups and new bass drops to keep your appetite fulfilled.
They also released a wicked video for the VIP CLUB MIX that is hot off the press from Westwoood Recordings. The video showcases the hard work that The Funk Hunters have been pouring into their custom synced Audio and Visual show that they bring to their live performances. It’s cut in a way that further emphasizes the bounce of the bumpin’ beats while putting the spotlight on the presence of Chali 2na and his legendary skills as a lyricist. The combination is utterly captivating as it carries you through the first verse and into a huge build that culminates with a superbly, satisfying bass drop.
Frequencies seem to leap from the screen as lighting emerges from the shrouded hands of Chali 2na with every bass stab. You’ll certainly feel the shock in your skeleton but it’s incredibly energizing and invigorating rather than painful or excruciating.
Neither the video nor the tune miss a step as it glides right through to the second vocal verse. The pinpoint editing scatters images and scenes across the picture, which are perfectly paired with the soulful, passionate lyrics of Chali 2na.
Every aspect and detail adds another element to the original composition, bringing the power of the song full circle as you absorb it visually and physically.
The final drop is even more gratifying than the first as it brings all the pieces together in a blazin’ finale. Our hats go off to everyone involved with this project and we couldn’t be more excited to see what else The Funk Hunters, CMC & Silenta, Chali 2na and Westwood Recordings have planned for the future.
