Funken Wavetropi (soundcloud) busted onto the scene last year with his debut release on his then brand new imprint, Perfect Straight. The first record was a cute little 7″ entitled Pizza Dealer which ended up garnering quite a bit of success with plays from tastemakers across the globe. Since then, the Aguascalientes, México-based producer has put out a single on a VA for Whyte Numbers (recently played by Move D in his Boiler Room Berlin 6th anniversary session) and a digital download as well via his own label. Now, he’s prepped his first 12″ for release with the title track and our premiere today, Feel Me, being the main reason as to why the label is more than just a concept, 2 years after the initial idea was born.
What’s immediately noticeable about Funken Wavetropi’s productions is the funky and bouncy bassline in each tune and it is once again front and centre on Feel Me. This one’s got a classic deep house vibe about it with a more modern twist. The swelling chords, sampled diva-esque vocal shout and vintage horns are all reminiscent of the 90’s, but the accompanying synth work and bubbly bass are what give it its contemporary flare. The track is also a bit of a burner, gradually evolving as it progresses on its 7 minute journey and we’re sure it’s going to get some serious emotions flowing on the dance floor.
Vinyl heads beware, the record which is pressed on transparent vinyl will only have 150 copies available, so be sure to get your pre-orders in via the Perfect Straight Bandcamp.
