Over the weekend, Norwegian producer Funkin Matt debuted his first track on one of the biggest labels in dance music, Steve Aoki's Dim Mak Records. The label, along with others like OWSLA, who were once rooted in hard electro sounds, has been on the move to broaden its sound with new and talented artists with a potentially softer sound. Matt's sound isn't soft, though, it's one inspired by bass and garage beats, as exemplified in "Flux."
With a heavy bassline, "Flux" is groovy, hard-hitting with both retro robotic elements and futuristic synths. Check it out below.
