Dahni’s “Betamax” is all about the Funk

With every release, Venezuelan producer Daniel Elorza seems willing to try it all. Under his previous moniker, Kiev, we found him digging into dubstep and UK funk; and in his recent releases as Dahni, we’ve heard his appreciation for old-school house. But on his new single, “Betamax,” he’s all about the funk. 80s electronic funk, to be precise. The song is filled with retro sounds with a futuristic approach, and a bassline that is the star of the song. Occasional bursts of sub-bass hit your chest, while a constant vocoded voice tells us a story, but it’s frankly unintelligible.

And who else could possibly bring you a track this fresh? That’s right. It’s out now on Cocobass.
