Fast approaching the end of a year that has given rise to the production dexterity of Phunk Investigation, the Italian duo return to Olav Basoski’s Spinnin’ offshoot Work Records alongside Dino Lenny for the release of ‘Relax.’ Borrowing the lyrics from Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s 1983 hit with the same name and showcasing deep grooves and churning bass manoeuvres throughout, Phunk Investigation provide yet another prime example of why traditional House is still worth pursuing amid the somewhat stateside biased 21st century Electronic music explosion.
Out now on Beatport.
With Axwell, Avicii and Dirty South all tuned in to their studio output courtesy of ‘From The Dust’ and ‘Critical’, the follow-up to the latter sees eclectic Italy duo Phunk Investigation reunite with partner-in-crime Schuhmacher for an equally impressive second release for Germany’s Great Stuff Recordings.
Rife with mesmerizing rhythmic progressions and uplifting melodic charm, ‘Miracle’ sees them return to the energetic House stylings we have come to associate with this Italian/Swiss collective. Despite Dino Lenny not quite hitting the same superb notes now associated with the London vocalist, the energetic instrumental work is enough to make up yet another belter for a year that has Phunk Investigation and Schuhmacher’s names written all over it.
Next release from Phunk Investigation is a remix of Roy Rosenfeld – Jerusalem. Out soon on Definitive Recordings. Enjoy!
