02. Funk D’Void – Soul Slap (Heiko Laux Remix)
Legendary Soma Records artist Funk D‚void is back with a fantastic EP that straddles the boundaries between House & Techno in the quality Soul Slap EP. Now is the 30th year of his career, Lars Sandberg really needs no introduction and his credentials are endless and with this modern production he shows why he is still a force to be reckoned with. Up on the flip we welcome the remix talents of Berlin based DJ/Producer, Heiko Laux.
Funk D‚Void‚s signature big, anthemic sound is prevalent from the outset of Soul Slap as punchy chords reverberate and oscillate backed by cleverly constructed, percussive elements. Lars easily straddles the worlds of catchy, Detroit House infused melody with more modern sounds and vibes.
Heiko Laux steps up bringing his invaluable remix talents to Soul Slap. Things definitely go a little darker in Heiko‚s epic, 9min version as a growling bass line and think, layered kick sounds back the gradually building atmospheric elements before a perfectly sequenced synth hook takes things into the body of the track. Heiko works in the original‚s base hook before smashing it home with a full on percussive workout on the hi hats.
Lars has always been one to create unique and standout music, all done with a crystal clear signature sound and nods to his Detroit techno roots.
