Plastik Funk Behind the Mysterious ID “Tight”

Plastik Funk Behind the Mysterious ID "Tight"
Last year, German powerhouse duo Plastik Funk took the dance music scene by storm with their smash hit “Who” (with Tujamo), and now they’ve returned with another groovy, seductive house track to kick off 2016. The new release, “Tight” (with Strobe, Lazn feat. Sapele) may sound familiar to those with well-trained ears; some heavy hitters like Nicky Romero, Martin Garrix, Gregor Salto, Don Diablo among others have featured it in their sets and radio shows as an ID, and listeners mistakenly tagged the track as a brand new Eelke Kleijn & Mike Mago single. With its deep house influences and soulful vocals, “Tight”, as Flamingo Recordings’ release, will ignite dance floors around the globe – and perhaps even inspire some late night romance after the club.

Rafael Ximenez-Carrilo and Mikio Gruschinske did not always intend to create electronic music; the two began DJing hip-hop music while in high school together but branched into house music after being transformed by the beats of legends like Frankie Knuckles and David Morales. After a series of club hits, Plastik Funk joined the international tour scene and then produced “Who”, which put them in the UK spotlight and peaked at 21 on the UK Singles Chart. Plastik Funk have since fine-tuned their signature sound, which blurs the lines between progressive and tech house to create a captivating and energetic vibe that is suitable for both relaxing and hitting the town. The early attention “Tight” has gained from its ID speculation positions Plastik Funk for a well-deserved place as one of this year’s hottest rising talent.

Nicky Romero’s Protocol Recordings has quickly become a renowned, taste-making imprint with a diverse roster of artists who all have one thing in common – the ability to excellently produce forward-thinking electronic music. Enter Trilane and YARO, the veteran duo and talented up-and-comer who regularly combine forces with tracks that always knock it out of the park. Trilane counts legends like Swedish House Mafia among their inspirations, the influence of which is nuanced in the larger-than-life feel of their productions. Their past releases include releases on Dirty South’s Phazing, Afrojack’s Wall Recordings, and Mirage Records, to name a few. YARO began his music career more recently, but the young prodigy is already one of the best percussionists in his native Sweden; his talent was recognized when he was just a little boy touring around Europe accompanied by the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra.

Radical Right-Wing Pastor Goes Viral With This House Remix Video

Radical right-wing pastor Paula White goes viral after she delivered a prayer service speaking in tongues in order to secure Trump’s reelection. Not to mention, she even called on “angelic reinforcement” from Africa and South America. Creatively, Seattle-based DJ vxrt uploaded a House remix video on Twitter adding his own funny twist. Personally, I don’t think the spiritual adviser to the former American president can make “miracles” at the moment, but I’m sure she’s having us laughing out loud with her nonsense/crazy attitude.

On more than one occasion, she has been criticized for using religion to manipulate people of faith. Those evangelicals who continue to support Trump and are willing to turn a blind eye to his bigotry and racism should reflect on their wrong actions…

So far, I want to congratulate my American friends on the promising victory of Joe Biden. Well, I can’t think of anything to say besides FUCK Donald Trump. 😂

Volt'R Channels Enigmatic Vibes In New Song, "Shiva" — LISTEN
There is something exotic and extraordinarily enigmatic about this new song titled “Shiva” by Volt’R. Hailing from Lyon, France, the prolific producer used to be a member of the IMAGINE collective. Not to mention, this allowed him to perform with notable DJs in the music industry like Magda, Miguel Campbell, Catz N’ Dogz, Tiefschwarz, among others. He started creating tunes in 2010 due to his love for the Progressive House genre. Nevertheless, shortly after, he felt intrigued by Melodic Techno and House rhythms to date.

As the title suggests, “Shiva” is a great example of oriental-esque elements mixed with driving electronic beats. Certainly, this club banger also works as a powerful mantra to listen to on the dancefloor. A 9-minute cut that gives off positive energy geared toward making you enjoy the best night out.

In case you didn’t know, Volt’R has signed plenty of tracks on worldwide labels such as VFTR, Central Dogma, Sound On Sound, Dolphin Records, etc. If you think he’s already demonstrating impressive soundscapes on “Shiva,” you can’t wait to hear what’s next for party lovers. Stay tuned on his socials down here, and grab your free download.

All the producers behind this project weave together well-crafted tunes with a meditative yet driving late-night groove. Therefore, the ‘Hush’ EP is one of the most triumphant offerings in the genre.
