๐Ÿฃ TOFUBEATS — WHAT YOU GOT

Summoning funky house of the past and packaging it in the polish and pizzazz of present day production, Japanese DJ, producer and all-round musicmaker tofubeats offers up the interminable bodymover that is 'WHAT YOU GOT'. Thudding kicks bump the track along its way, accompanied by disco-flavoured percussion, a twanging synth playing its elastic melody before rich robust piano chords hop into the mix with a hop, adding to the addictive rhythm, and then the groove comes together when the popping bass slides in with a vroooom at 01:24. This is the buckle-up moment. It dances along, vocals sleek with subtle autotune, snippets of brass piling on the celebratory vibe—uplifting is an understatement.

About a third of the way through we have a break in the house rhythms when the track receives a trap-leaning enrichment with vocodered vocals from YOUNG JUJU from Tokyo crew KANDYTOWN, alive in a whirl of smooth plasma synths and pugilistic snare rolls. A veritable gift of variation before the groovesome jubilation continues, jumping and leaping till the end jam-packed with more triumphal brass, with splashy peals of electric guitar solo decorating, with layers of what sounds like everyone – mainly including singer-songwriter sugar me – lending their voice to this decidedly bustling brightly coloured party-you-never-wanna-leave atmosphere. The feeling is feel-good, as the video will illustrate.
