Favorite ThisAbakus - FunkyTec Beats DJ Set (December2011)

Published: December 8, 2011

There's never a dull moment in the new FunkyTec Beats set from the U.K.'s ABAKUS. Ranging from rumbling tech-house to flashy breaks and careening towards that omnipresent electro-house sound, the BPMs never drop below the triple digits. With a far-flung career that has given Russ Davies the chance to explore every nook and cranny of electronic music, his ABAKUS project has allowed him to bring to light some of the best underground tracks floating around Europe, Asia, and the rest of the globe. This mix drops into Freshquim, and never lets go. By the time we hit the Blazer remix of Aggressiveness' "Futurasia," we've morphed from pounding drums through funky grooves and into the roiling bass of the track's modern edge. American fans will get a chance to catch ABAKUS in action as he joins Mord Fustang and The Manhattan Project the day after X-mas at B.B. King's for the official late-night post-Disco Biscuits rager in NYC.
