Production duo Computa Games take the most slamming synth bass, the crispest drum machine hits, and the overall classic vibes of 80’s dance-funk tunes to new aural heights. Sculpted using the best modern studio techniques, the “Cosmic Dispatch” EP fuses funk, disco, soul and electro to various combinations, fitting the feel of the classiest nightclub or the grittiest backyard party. Each individual tune on the EP pairs with a unique vocalist or collaborator, as the project features guests Lovechild, B Bravo, Jackie Rain, Natalita, and E. Live. There is something killer and personalized on this EP for every type of dancer, funkster, and headnodder Around.
The Computa Games project is the product of the combined efforts of Martin Arceneaux and Chris Arenas. Joining their deep roots of live funk, electronic/live production and DJing, they formed in the fall of 2012, and quickly released two singles on the Supermart Produce label. The two debuted their live set at Monarch in San Francisco, with follow up performances at SXSW in Austin, and Tipitina’s New Orleans. The group’s third single “Rock Creek (Revenge)” was released exclusively on Beatport, where it was a featured track on the site’s Funk/ R&B page and stayed in the Funk/R&B Top100 for nearly 2 months, peaking in the top15. The group then released the “Grand Design” EP in September 2013 on Super Mart Records, followed quickly by a remix of The Pendletons single “Let Me Turn You On” featuring K-Maxx, and then a remix of New Orleans based funk band Galactic’s “Heart Of Steel”, featuring the legendary Irma Thomas. In October of 2015 Computa Games released their first vinyl 7” on ABC records with “Do Your Thing” featuring K-Maxx b/w “Feel Right 2Nite” which promptly established them in the burgeoning modern funk scene. Their follow up 7” was released in January 2017 with the single “Computer Rock” b/w “Computer Rock (West Coast Remix)” on the New Orleans label Super Jock Records. Computer Rock garnered the duo more accolades with critics and fans alike.
