The west-coast funkmeister, Slynk, has returned, bringing that late-night summer heat to get the masses warm during these chilly final months of winter. Built on top of cheeky 70s-inspired synths and an unmistakably Slynk-y bassline, “Disco Operator” is pure funk – punctuated with nimble guitar licks and soaring saxophone lines.
But the real treat here is Slynk’s newest weapon, the talkbox. Slynk and his talkbox stand alone in a world that’s becoming increasingly full of nu-disco and nu-funk. His continuing study and mastery of this sound manipulation sets him apart from his contemporaries and gives “Disco Operator” (And his recently released “That Thing You Do” feat. Father Funk) a special kick that pulls the ears to somewhere new while giving them the comfort of something oddly familiar.
