PREMIERE | Defunk Shares Highly Anticipated Tune “Blast Off”


Today, we have the pleasure of premiering a track that just might be one of the most hype, crowd-pleasing tunes we’ve heard in a hot minute. Canadian producer, Defunk, combines his love for soul, bass, and funk on his first single of 2023, entitled “Blast Off.”

“Blast Off” immediately grabs your attention with an intense, draw-dropping build up that simply cannot be ignored. Rising up to its imminent release, Defunk utilizes vocoded leads, momentous risers, and entrancing vocal chants to pull his listener in. The producer finally introduces the first drop with banging bass stabs and rhythmic synth warbles, both characteristic of his funk-inspired sound. Coming back down for a brief pause, spacious synth arpeggiations and a driving kick lead the track into its final drop, which puts a unique spin on the initial vibe set.

Defunk shared this message on his Instagram ahead of the release:

I am over the moon with excitement. Honestly I’ve been playing this one out for the last year, year and a half, and I don’t think I’ve ever put out a track that’s had as much hype live when I’ve played it out. I am so incredibly excited for everyone to hear it. If you’ve seen me in the last couple of years, you’ve probably heard this one. It makes a bit of a statement live.
