First Touch - Knockout (Cassette)
FIRST TOUCH presents a six song EP “KNOCKOUT”, a highly anticipated release for this duo out of Germany who is clearly operating on all cylinders as far as modern funk dance music is concerned, carving out a lane all of their own a long time ago! KNOCKOUT blasts the dance floor striking first with the BEWEG DEIN KÖPER, moving that body with a sophisticated level of uptempo modern funk built upon hard basslines and masterful synth arrangements. DO IT TO IT won’t let you leave the dance floor with bouncing bass and infectious chord arrangements, displaying the master craftsmanship of groove control this duo brings to modern funk music.
Love songs don’t have to be slow jams as revealed on IT MUST BE LOVE, this jam will have lovers dancing close to the silky rhythm and juicy chords that sweet talk listeners with dialogue of a Hardcastle lead! ITS LIKE PARADISE WHEN YOU’RE WITH ME electrifies that notion with a refreshing poolside melody that pulls you in closer with its bubbling bass that won’t let you escape as it electrifies with vocoders and hypnotizes with an infectious breakdown. JUST A GROOVE is one to glide the streets to, this tuff baseline carries the rhythm on skates with its slick simplicity highlighting masterful synth arrangements that go back and for between this duo steady riding the groove. Closing out the EP with a jam that is a pure funk anthem that will take over dance floors as FIRST TOUCH gives you the KNOCKOUT!
