Dat Funk

Funky synth track. Syncopated beat intro, woozy synths come in sideways and wonky synth melodies create an off-kilter funk jam. Spacey section floating on a synthy rainbow road, electric guitar-like synth melody builds the energy. Alternates between funky builds to a mesh of synths and beats and dreamy synth sections. Chilled, fun and positive, with swing and swagger, perfect for a commercial advert for funky clothing or good times, or for a laid back reality TV montage sequence.
