I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is guaranteed to be the funkiest tune you’ll hear today. If not all week even. Kaytranada‘s steady rise to beat scene superhero is well documented. AlunaGeorge released one of the coolest albums of 2013 and crushed a huge tune with Disclosure. The absolute brilliance of this honestly shouldn’t surprise you. Kaytranada sped up the tempo of the original to his prototypical 115BPM funked-out spaceship and just goes in. The bubbly bass line, to the immaculate drums to some of the most amazing rising funky synth work I’ve heard in some time…all huge wins here. Of course this drops just in time for SXSW were Kaytranada will be playing a number of gigs. Grab that download below and check this kid if you’re going to be down in Austin next week.
