Future funk is kicking its way out of Melbourne and straight into the hearts of post-dubsteppers everywhere. Opiuo
is piling jazz, psychedelia, and a whole lot of funk into his new midtempo groove engines. Swiveling like barstools, these bangers have so much fun and energy to combat dreary bass creations of the past. With tons of influences picked and pulled from across music's many genres and a little help from Russ Liquid, the out of this world trumpet virtuoso (though his horn is shelved for "Don't Hold Back") and Syreneiscreamy, Butternut Slap Pt 2
packs a punch. Synth stabs and sounds of the natural world weave their way through these delightful collaborations that evoke such a lush world of rain forests and mountain streams that you never want to leave. Get slapped.
