To everyone who’s ever felt the irresistible, yet terrifying pull of a new love after being burned: Bit Funk and vocalist Oktavian feel your pain, and they have a song for you. The Canadian producer and Los Angeles-based vocalist teamed up for “Getting Worse”, a poppy, dance ballad that will speak to the bittersweet inner conflict everyone feels when learning to love again after heartbreak. Its subtle ’80s flair through disco-influenced melodies give the “Getting Worse” groovy report on the dance front, while Oktavian’s visceral deliverance of the very vulnerable lyrics give the song depth and relatability. “Getting Worse” stemmed from a personal experience of Oktavian’s that he and Bit Funk gave life to with a track. “BitFunk really found a perfect vibe in the track for the lyric and melody, which was written about a relationship I had in school a few years back… we were trying hard not to fall but the chemistry was so heavy!” explained Oktavian. “I’m super stoked for the audience to feel that sort of connection with this song and for it to do great things!” The release is out on Physical Presents, which also plays home to melodic maestros Felix Cartal, Bobby Love and others.
Bit Funk’s ability to create a fusion of classic and modern sounds in his productions has made him one of the most prominent house and disco producers in the scene in recent years. As a drummer in a past life, the Brooklyn-based, Canadian producer has collected inspiration from far and wide, resulting in music that feels at home both in the club and through your radio. His breakout moment came with the release of the “Off the Ground” single and accompanying music video, which experienced massive viral success and won Bit Funk the JUNO “Dance Recording of the Year” award in 2017. Since then, Bit Funk has given his touch to remixes for Penguin Prison, Emma-Lee and Goldroom. “Getting Worse” is the follow-up to his recent breezy, tropical-inspired “Destination Sunrise,” which has garnered over 4 million streams to date. Oktavian is an established American writer and vocalist who has multiple high-profile collaborations under his belt, including DVBBS, Zed’s Dead, and Illenium. Keep tabs on these two to hear what’s next!

Yellow Claw Celebrate Barong Family’s 200th Release With 7-Track EP ‘BF200’
Yellow Claw‘s Barong Family celebrates 6 years and 200 releases with an EP compilation appropriately titled ‘BF200’ which features seven brand new tracks from the brightest names on the label, such as Yellow Claw themselves, Wiwek, Crisis Era, RayRay, GHOSTER, Nonsens, Psycho Boys Club, and more. The Amsterdam-based imprint has become known for its wide range of musical influences and high-tempo BPMs, and “BF200” follows the same vein. Spanning sounds from three continents and even a reworked ’90s classic, “BF200” also has a unique and fantastical backstory. Ever the creative crew, the EP’s accompanying artwork, and bonus audiobook see Barong Family travels across space and time to save their home planet Mother Earth. Head honchos Yellow Claw describe the impetus behind the EP below:
“It has been a wild ride since when we had put out our first release on Barong Family back in 2014. During the past 6 years, we have met many talented artists who wanted to take part in this adventure with us and joined the family. Moksi, RayRay, Wiwek, and more all saw the transition from Barong Family – a music label to Barong Family – a worldwide brand with its own merch lines, writing camps in Asia, documentaries, sold-out tours in North America, own stages at the world’s biggest festivals. 200 releases seem like a big number, and 6 years feel like a very long time, but for us, thanks to what we do and whom we are fortunate to work with, it feels like we are just starting, as our excitement never faded away.” – Yellow Claw
As for the sonic journey of “BF200,” it begins with “I Want It” from Yellow Claw and Wiwek, who deliver epic hip-hop beats to set the tone of the EP. Next up is Canadian duo Crisis Era’s “Funky Pills” for all the old school ravers out there, while DJ Soda and RayRay’s “Obsession” serves up a sneaky dose of hard-hitting bass. Yellow Claw themselves reworked the Tokyo Ghetto Pussy’s 1995 hit “Kiss Your Lips” for the EP, giving the classic a modern dance facelift. GHOSTER employs Nanami’s breathy vocals to deliver a solid mission statement in “Belong,” before Danish threesome Nonsens put the pedal to the metal with “Teaze,” speeding up proceedings with immense 4/4 energy. Finally, all systems go on Psycho Boys Club’s “Break.” Did anyone expect Barong Family to ever take it easy?
