It is becoming increasingly clear that Brisbane is the hub for young, quietly spoken, off kilter producers with buttloads of talent. This week’s discovery is no different. Young Franco is the latest to start generating hype and compliments amongst the Australian Electronica alumni. His new EP, ‘FutureFunk’ is a classy blend,a refined funk storm well and truly worth sticking in your ipod for the last chunk of Summer debauchery.
Whilst the recent fashionable emergence of disco funk thanks to Messrs De Hommem-Christo and Bangalter is a clear influence on the EP, that doesn’t mean it isn’t still a bundle of fun- tracks like D.R.E.A.M, whilst not entirely original in sound, finds the perfect combination of disco samples, slap bass and classic synths. Any disco-funk-soul track is always a good idea.
We are sure that big things are in store for James/Dave’s youngest sibling, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for 2014.
As a sign of goodwill, Young Franco has made the entire FUTUREFUNK EP available for free downloadHERE.
