The Parisian partnership of Tony Brodski and Guillaume Delarge present Punky Blaster, ‘Missin’. This funky and fun disco house track comes courtesy of Toolroom Records and is available now from beatport. The release also includes remixes by The Cube Guys, Rogerseventytwo and Art Of Tones.
‘Cutting-edge workers in song’, Punky Blaster aim to ‘tear down the old electro building…[and] raise it anew’. This unique duo’s ability to deconstruct and fuse hip-hop, electro, house and soul has indeed seen them break down walls and has already afforded them a rich industry legacy. One half of the duo, Tony Brodski, cut his musical career from a diet of old school hip-hop, DMC competitions, and DJing for Busta Rhymes and Method Man amongst others. Punky partner Guillaume Delarge’s song writing sings from a different page, covering classical musical training, nu-wave, funk and rock. With supporters such as A-Trak, it’s no surprise that these two are tipped to be France’s finest since Daft Punk.
Released on beatport this Monday, Missin’ brings disco bang up to date with soulful funky vocals, filtered licks, energetic beats and infectious grooves. Remix-wise, it’s The Cube Guys who get heavy on the house trip, laying down a huge sub groove to set the pace for further rhythm-building sample trickery. Rogerseventytwo is up next, building on the disco vibes of the original, whilst imprinting his own sound using contrasting punchy beats and big roomy builds. Finally, Art Of Tones takes the track deeper, removing the disco and creating a cool and spacious soundscape of intricate underground grooves.
Having soared straight into the DMC Buzz chart at #3, Missin’ is a sure-fire disco house hit. Add the remixes to the package and you get a release that is certified for underground addicts and disco devotees alike.
