Not everyone gets to meet their childhood heroes. Yung Bae is one of the lucky few; on his new single “Awesome Ways,” the funky producer linked up with Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers.
The resulting collab track from these two is pure summer magic that feels both timeless and modern. Rodgers’ signature 70’s disco-style guitar riffs perfectly complement Yung Bae’s fusion of future-funk and house. With its sunny synth ripples and a groovy bass guitar line, this track teleports us to a disco roller-rink on a warm summer night.
Here’s what Yung Bae had to say about working with Rodgers:
“[This] feels like a full circle track for me. I remember listening to Niles guitar on countless tracks growing up. flash forward to lockdown, I had the opportunity to fly out to his house and work for a dew days and this track is the result of that trip. He’s truly one of my music heroes and this track feels so special being able to combine our different talents.”
If you’re digging this new tune as much as we are, make sure to look out for Yung Bae’s upcoming album Groove Continental: Side B, a follow up to his acclaimed 2022 album. We highly recommend giving “Awesome Ways” a listen below. Enjoy!
