ELASTIC THUMP is a modern, melodic take on urban funk that brews the smoothness of R&B with the feel-good vibes of dance music and the bounce of futuristic, beathead culture. It’s the perfect palette for those who defy genre and create tracks that both beat-loving head nodders and shuffling club goers will love.
REFLECTIONS OF TOMORROW
Over the last few years, a new genre of music has emerged. It fuses street-smart, beat music with uptempo synths and the positive energy of house music. This future funk is inspired by 90s R&B, 80s urban funk, and feel-good body music, influenced by modern genres like trap, bass, and footwork. It reached a global audience through the popular podcasts from the LA-based Soulection crew, and can be found in works from artists like Kaytranada, Anderson .PAAK, Mr. Carmack, Lakim, Dâm-Funk, and GoldLink.
BUTTERY BEATS SOAKED IN ANALOG WARMTH
Following this same consciousness, ELASTIC THUMP bumps with rubbery bass, luscious analog synths, liquid vocal chops, and crunchy acoustic drums. Sounds lovingly recorded from the Roland Juno 106, Moog Minitaur, and Teenage Engineering Pocket Operators ooze with analog butteriness. Sampled Fender Precision bass, a Rhodes 73 keyboard, and a variety of vintage drums add a sheen of dust to the sound. And with 120 new Drum Synth sounds you’ll be able to shape and design your own signature beats.
