Funk Manchu Cooks Up Classic House Goodness With Dual Release “Waif Boy / Bounce That B”
With each new release Treasure Fingers’ Psycho Disco label continues to put Atlanta house on the map. The provocative imprint is by far one of our favorite sources for dope underground house tunes and the collective is showing no sign of slowing down. One ATL native that is turning heads and perfectly embodies the Psycho Disco ethos is Funk Manchu. Today Sensible Reason is bringing you an exclusive premiere of Funk Manchu’s double-header release titled, ‘Waif Boy / Bounce That B.’
These two classic house tracks combine to create one scintillating release. Funk Manchu’s production style is equal parts irreverent and meticulous. With the ability to marry cutting-edge sound design with hard-hitting old-school angst, this ATLien is the real deal. “Waif Boy” kicks off with precocious drum programming that, oddly enough, sounds a bit like a popular track from the mid-2000’s. The artist of said record had been jokingly referred to as a ‘fun-sized, guff-tongued, pirouetting waif-boy’ by some wise-guy critic, and that’s how the track got its name.This track is bringing sexy back with its playful flair and layered synths. Perfect for late night grooves and rooftop gatherings, “Waifboy” is the ideal springtime track.
“Bounce That B” sizzles with lethal simplicity. This club banger was made to make dance floors tremble and while it draws some similarities in style with “Waif Boy,” this tune stands on its own as a wildly infectious banger. Elements of acid and deep house collide to create a percolating tune that will undoubtedly put a smile on the face of any house aficionado.
