The wave of future beat movements that heavily touch on a strong soul foundation have soared and continue to be on the rise, and boy can I say that the recent collaboration between versatile producer Sh?m with Australian co-founder of the advancing independent label Flow-Fi, aywy. aka abstract youth, is on straight fire right now as they offer us a new take on a soulful original. Both artists have recently collaborated to deliver a smooth, soulful edit of the classic throwback, “Ascension” by Maxwell. This summer hit makes me move my head back and forth and snap my fingers like I am legit at the disco. Vocal edits, twangy sounding synths, and claps give this track an especially groovy feel, while a funky bass and other new electronic elements sink into a more forward sounding track that errs on the side of house. This nu disco beat is pure future funk. So smooth. Be on the lookout for an even brighter future for these two talented artists.
