Get out a pen and paper and prepare to take some notes; class is now in session—funk class, that is. Your instructors today will be Denver-based Kinetik Groove and his Texas-raised label mate Blunt Force, and they are here to introduce you to their music love child, Kinetik Force. Known in real life as Austin O’Meara (Kinetik Groove) and Brian Gustafson (Blunt Force), Kinetik Force is a collaborative project that is arguably better than peanut butter & jelly—sounds better anyway. Both gents are supremely talented musicians/producers in their own right, each bringing their own unique flavor to Kinetik Force on their recently released EP Fusion.
From start to finish this EP is a splendid collection of four electro-soul/future-funk jams that incorporate tons of expertly sampled bits and pieces, glitchy breakdowns, saucy guitar riffs, and plenty of bass to finish it off. Existing (stylistically) somewhere between The Floozies, Opiuo, and Big Gigantic, Kinetik Force (and its individual parts) is sure to leave lovers of funky beats breathless. Scoop up a free download of the Fusion EP as well as tons of music on their Soundcloud pages. Be sure to spread the word if/when you are blown away. Enjoy!
