Kramder – Funktastic EP
You may not be familiar with the name Kramder just yet. But the up and coming artist has just released one the most impressive EPs 2018. The two song effort is known as ‘Funktastic' and the extended play entirely lives up to its name. The lead-f single, ‘Groove Sauce', is a buttery single that breaths new life into house music with a modern take on classic sounds.
Immediately upon listening, it is clear that Kramder has an innate talent for producing funky singles that inherently just work. It would be easy to mistake this track for an early production Daft Punk or Justice. And that is not something I say lightly; the nostalgia-inducing track is just that good. The closing track ‘Pure Gasoline' is just as funky and impressive.
Relying on a steady driving bass line and classic vocal samples, ‘Pure Gasoline' is a throwback to the golden era house. Cascading, laser-like synths can be found throughout furthering the overall cohesion the track. By the end this tune, the listener will absolutely feel the need to dance.
