The millennial generation of music fans live by the “work hard, play hard” motto. While they may enjoy hedonistic indulgences on late weekend nights, they’re grinding equally as hard during the 9-to-5 and beyond. Plastik Funk‘s new tune “Rise” is the hustler and the weekend warrior inside all of us. With Plastik Funk’s signature deep, groovy bassline complemented by a disco-influenced melody and motivational-yet-playful lyrics, “Rise” is equally inspiring and danceable. For someone whose calling is to produce music that is both emotionally uplifting and dancefloor-friendly, Plastik Funk knocked it out of the park with this one. Fans who have caught Plastik Funk live may recognize this catchy tune. Says Plastik Funk of his newest masterpiece, “It all started with a bootleg using the vocal of “Rise” a while ago to rock it in my sets. People just went crazy when I played it so I decided to do it official…With the signing on Armada it got real and I can’t wait to finally release this club and festival bomb!”
The man behind dynamic, euphoric hits like “Sunrise,” “Here We Go” and the classic “Tight” is none other than Rafael Ximenez-Carrillo, who has made it his mission to get people dancing and make them feel good through his music. Anyone who has ever seen his live sets can attest that he accomplishes this undertaking with ease; he has played at some of the world’s best festivals and clubs as part of the crew on Armada Music, where many of his productions have found a home. His music has also caught the attention of other industry heavy hitters; his track “Got No Love” was premiered by Don Diablo on Hexagon Radio, and his productions received support from the likes of Sander van Doorn, Nicky Romero and more. He recently kicked off his #FunkYouVeryMuch Monthly Radio Show, which is brimming with the freshest in groovy, energetic tunes and a dose of personality from the man himself. With several new releases in the queue, Plastik Funk always has something up his sleeve.
