As new GS collaborators (what an honor!) our first post in this brand new year is going to be about Phunktastike. You may have not hear anything about this guy and that’s why we wanna spread some of his good music, and what a better beginning than being Spanish as we are!

Buenos Aires based producer Mariano Piriz and owner of Spirit Soul Music label, is a young talented guy known as Phunktastike. Influenced by electronic music from the 70’s and 80’s and after having explored most of styles, he has defined a peculiar an unique funk and disco sound with which he builds eclectic mixes catching all the full energy and good vibes. And all that is reflected in his latest EP called “Booged Out“, released last December under the Argentinian record imprint Heartbeat Revolution.

The EP includes two original tracks and each of them its respective remixes by Julian Sanza. The first one is ‘Booged Out’, which has that characteristic disco funk atmosphere that as it goes ahead you feel getting closer and closer to some tropical beach in South America; we’d say that later it fully gets you into the Carnival of Brazil, as the final whistles are a real party. The remix made is the reinforced version of the track. It could be the song played late at night at that beach, he’s added the futuristic stuff with vocoders and a synthy bassline perfect to dance till the sunrise.

The second track is called ‘Feel What You Wanna Feel’, a more nu-disco tune with that Saturday Night Fever and Disco Inferno spirit perfect for every dancefloor with rollerblades included. The boogie-woogie has definitely come to stay! Julian Sanza’s version for this one follows his futuristic style, the bassline is simply amazing; if you are looking for the real groove and good vibes this remix has the whole package.

Booged Out” EP is already available on Juno. Heartbeat Revolutions HBR 047. (12 December, 2011)
