Louis La Roche is not one to dabble in much popular music, so consider it a blessing he decided to funkify this huge single off Calvin Harris‘ most recent album. This dance floor classic was transformed into this french funk tune that is sure to take over your body. It honestly just sounds like he took the vocals and created his own new world for them. It has some nostalgic sounds intermixed with the future funk he’s putting out there as 80’s synths roll into some new vocoder vocals. You’ll be able to pick out a lot of different instruments strung together to complete this record as the attention to detail is impeccable.
