With Lu Roc Melodic’s single “The Funk Way Down” he took all of the sterility which is commonly found in House music, and replaced it with layers of Funk, Groove, Soul, and elements of Rock to create a well-rounded beat that wouldn’t fail to get an Acid House dancefloor warmed up.
Even though the Chicago-based artist is fresh from his inception, the soundscapes he cooks up wouldn’t allow you to believe it. The clever use of vocal samples allows the electronic beat to lead the way throughout the potently euphoric mix which incorporates bendy acoustic basslines along with some raw guitar arrangements which switch up from a Jangle Pop style progression to angular riffs.
