Quality house music often gets overlooked or unintentionally flies under the radar nowadays. Looking to turn that around 20 year old Parisian producer kramder brings the heat with his latest offering on Tchami‘s Confession imprint. The producer’s “Funkastic” EP comes as a fresh breath with its French disco, reminiscent of influence from the likes of Daft Punk, Justice, Kavinsky and masterfully infused into house beats – keeping the funk rolling non-stop with the perfect blend of house and disco.
The first track of the EP, titled “Groove Sauce”, comes as a refreshingly fun disco cut, followed by “Pure Gasoline”. “60% of the time, it works every time,” the Anchorman quote sets the mood, before dropping into the madness with “This smells like pure gasoline.”
Talking about how the EP came into being, kramder says:
“Since I was a kid, I have been in love with funk and disco music. Aside from my bass-house project, I always tried to make some more funky tracks in my bedroom. After five or six projects, ‘Groove Sauce’ was born, and I decided to finish it. I sent it to Malaa and he ended up playing it live a handful of times. He spoke to Tchami about my work, and then one day, I woke up with an email from Tchami himself…I thought at first that the email was junk, but then realized Tchami wanted to sign me to CONFESSION. I was super excited to say the least.“
Releasing the EP on his imprint, Confession label boss Tchami explained the release with a few words of his own:
“Kramder’s music is the kind that wakes you up instantly. It’s definitely funky, and full of fresh vibes.“
With early support from the likes of DJ Snake, Oliver Heldens, Tchami, Malaa, Mercer, and other heavy hitters in the scene, there is hardly any going wrong with the latest kramder release.
