Keytar slingin,’ funk bringin’ producer, K+Lab, offers something uniquely stylish to the electronic landscape. The standout sound and immaculate stage performance of the New Zeland-born “intergalactic funk” master has earned himself a NZ “Best Electronica Artist of the Year” nomination, among other impressive achievements. Yesterday, he added the release of his new single “YOU!” to the list.
Beginning with an eery introduction flooded with ambient synths and anticipatory percussion, K+Lab quickly sets into the first, funky drop. Samples of jazz piano and soulful vocal chops contrast a punchy kit and buzzy bass, making for a blissfully dynamic mix. A bit further into “YOU!,” K+Lab leans more into the bass line, riffing over bars and finding new ways to fall into the pocket, while still remaining dancey enough for the club.
You can stream “YOU!” at the link below, out everywhere via Westwood Recordings. Enjoy!
