Don’t touch that dial! Sure this may feel like you’ve accidentally dipped into your dad’s Spotify playlist at the start but once the filthy bassline takes hold you know you’re in for a special kind of treat.
Surfacing on the genre-defying Wakaan imprint, Au5 and Nasty Purple pick up where “Lazerfunk” left off and combine classic old-school funk with future-leaning bass music and the results are guaranteed to have your body moving to the groove.
Easing into things with some Funkadelic-inspired vibrations, “Funk Ain’t Even” unfolds like a proper jam session rather than a studio collaboration from some of bass music’s finest. Once the bass gets an extra-dose of filth dropped into the proceedings you can already envision how this one will go down on the dancefloor.
Au5 says it best when he explains that the project seeks to channel “the inner philosophy of funk, reimagined within the context of heavy bass music.” Armed with the sonic weight of a festival track but infused with the intimate vocal-driven atmosphere of a club-sized rinseout there’s no denying that the party tune achieves what Au5 hopes is “something uniquely tangible yet allusive.”
