Mr.Black has a reputation for taking budding talent under his wings with his latest material. And his collaboration with the young Brazilian, WAO, is no exception to the impressive trend. “Funk Yourself” delivers both DJ/Producers eclectic characteristics, carrying a history that already includes features from the likes of Hardwell, FTampa, Fedde Le Grand, Michael Woods and even DJ Mag France. In turn reflecting the international flavour and appeal the borderless track has.
Mr.Black can lay a just claim to having one of the Middle East’s best portfolio’s of dance music. Having received significant support from names such as Hardwell, R3hab, Ummet Ozcan and Chuckie, Tel Aviv’s leading DJ/Producer also delivers classy remixes and sets to his repertoire. Having also had a year to remember in 2015 that pushed him towards the major global spotlight, this year is set to be another elevating step in his already decorated career.
WAO has already collaborated with the likes of leading South American names like FTampa on Hardwell’s esteemed Revealed Records, as well as given away a number of classy free downloads. With the Dutchman often featuring the Brazlian’s work on his weekly podcast ‘Hardwell On Air’, the exposure has boosted WAO’s profile significantly. And with features also on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s compilation of tracks, he’s attracting some of the biggest names in the scene early on.
“Funk Yourself” received one of its first plays via the 253rd episode of ‘Hardwell on Air’ – not a bad way to start. Opening with a sharp bass and descending chords, the vocal riff adds a robotic edge to the bursting siren FX and heightening tempo. With the minute mark bringing in a volumed drop, the tracks appeal to the peak-time continues on into the bridge and breakdown. Led to the scintillating drop once again by the front-running vocals, Mr.Black and WAO certainly don’t cease to impress with their latest work.
