Landis & Crespo – Funked Up [December 17 – Cr2 Records]
What happens when you take two rising Miami producers and lock them in the studio together? You get a track like “Funked Up”. Over the past few weeks, it seems as though Landis and Crespo have been doing pretty much everything together, from making tracks in the studio, to rocking the decks at EDC Orlando. We’re excited to hear the results of their studio time, through their second tandem release on Cr2 Records, following up “Mojo”. This new single is called “Funked Up,” and makes use of a hysterical, but useful, sample from the world-famous, “Cha-Cha Slide”.
This track has one of the most intricate melodies that I’ve heard in an electro track of late, but that just adds to the power this tune possesses. The melody leads straight into a wild build, that leads into the “Now it’s time to get funky” sample that most people can recognize easily. The drop that follows is incredible, made up of a razor sharp saw lead placed over a strong but not overpowering bassline. This track is easily one of the best releases Cr2 Records has put out this year, and really defines what electro house should sound like.
The tune definitely serves as a perfect holiday gift, and can be picked up on Beatport on December 17. Until then, enjoy this latest tune from Landis and Crespo!
