Synths are the sounds of the past few generations. From the workout videos of the 80s, to the more progressive punks in the 90s, to the supercharged hip-hop game of the 2000s. Now we have a serious resurgence of funk in our hands, and synths have another huge role to play. Los Angeles' Human Life gives us a perfect example in his new track with Anabel Englund, "El Diablo".
This isn't the first time Anabel and Human Life have linked up to make magic together. About nine months ago they released a tune called "Falling", and I'm guessing the buzz from that kept them in touch. I love how vocal these tracks are. The focus is less on the extravagance of the production, more upon the lyrics and how each verse is executed. The beat is simple, but retains that unidentifiable formula for keeping your feet moving. It's a lengthy dance party, as the track draws out for over seven minutes and forty seconds.
