DJ Mag Top 100 DJ and party-starting producer Plastik Funk continues to craft anthems for the modern age, bringing a funk-house sound and uplifting takes to epic releases, he now joins up with a friend and now collaborator Rudeejay for the huge ‘Sideways’!
Rudeejay has constantly put Italy on the map throughout his illustrious career, from collaborations with Tiësto, to being supported by the crème de le crème in the scene by names such as Hardwell, NERVO, Diplo, The Chainsmokers and more, ‘Sideways’ is a merger of the industry’s top-tier talents that is sure to dominate the Summer months.
Featuring exclusive writings and a unique vocal from Crooked Bangs, ‘Sideways’ shimmers in with sunshine-ready bursts of synth, as a hyper mutated vocal twists atop the shining-from-the-speakers beat. Juxtaposing with the lyric ”Lets just say, tomorrow is a new day” that travels atop a bold house beat, the tension pulls tighter come the build-up to prepare the audience for the ensuing, enveloping onslaught of joyous fun. As both producers bring in stretches of synth that wiggle below glitching and deeper notes, layering to provide all the perfect ingredients to create an earworm of a feel-good dance anthem, tempos push to new heights with a plethora of skill.
Speaking on the release, Plastik Funk said: “It was amazing to finally get in the studio with Rudeejay, we’ve been friends for a long time and he really is a wizard behind the decks and in the studio. We completely understood the future and deep house vibe we wanted to create with ‘Sideways’ and having Crooked Bangs come into the mix added a whole other dimension. To release on Future House Music is always a joy and we hope this new release is the soundtrack to your Summer!”
Similarly, Rudeejay said excitedly of the release: “After meeting because of my “I Got My Eye On Who” mashup, we kept ourselves in contact over the years, promising that we would collaborate on a track in the future: when Rafa heard the topline from Polina, aka Crooked Bangs, he thought it could be the right fit for a single together, and I was on the same page too! So we started crafting some demos in our studios and came to a final meeting point which is the one you’re hearing in this brand new Future House Music release this Summer!”
Overspilling with euphoria, ‘Sideways’ showcases itself as the perfect addition to both artists portfolio and a testament to the skill that both possess in the Future House realm.
