Megan’s other recent release was her remix of Slynk and Fort Knox‘s Fall 2021 release, ‘Keep the Funk Real’, a mid-tempo glitch-hop banger that features Evan’s signature killer keyboard riffs, fat bass drops, funky guitar hooks, strings, horns and bumpin’ beats. Megan brought her funky approach, pushes the wobbles and sped up the tempo with a house beat to create a floor-burner. The release also includes an instrumental mix for the DJs.
