French producer/DJ Jean Tonique graces us with the yet another funky two-track EP, ‘Lit Up’ – available to stream and purchase today via Yuksek’s label Partyfine!
Listen: Jean Tonique – ‘Lit Up’ EP
Holding true to its name, this EP is a perfect representation of Tonique’s talent for creating versatile and multi-instrumental productions. Brooding with an uplifting inflection, the title track ‘Lit Up’, features a groovy bass line, bouncy piano chords and jazzy guitar riffs that are perfectly paired against the soulful vocals from Canadian indie-electro band, Dirty Radio, who have been previously featured on one of Tonique’s tracks. ‘Fallin’, the EP’s smoother yet equally as lively venture, combines pulsing percussions that are centered around a rhythmic melody and filtered syncopated vocals to create a perfect summer anthem that could send ripples straight through any dance floor. Throughout the whole EP, Tonique succeeds in delivering two perfectly balanced funky house productions, reminiscent of old school, but infectiously cheerful vibes that have now grown to become his signature sound.
In support of the ‘Lit Up’ EP, Tonique will also be heading out on a worldwide summer tour that will take him across the US, France, Colombia, Mexico, Asia and many more. Check out the full list of tour dates below and keep your eyes peeled for more exciting Jean Tonique announcements.
