Waterbed, by Tendencies

a4169341053_10

Orange Milk Records recently dropped a new tape of glowing future-funk goodness, Waterbed,  from producer Tendencies. This is a 6 track project full of energy and awesome beats. Not shy on the use of vocal samples, it makes this a very poppy and listenable tape. Packed with wicked bass-lines and catchy melodies, this one is definitely worth a listen. And if you like it, you can grab a copy on Tape as well!

Favorite Track: 3. Waterbed

Brandon Smith’s Tendencies project shines through a lot of 2015’s Vaporwave overload with some of the heaviest and most heart-pounding grooves I’ve heard in the Future Funk sub-genre. The music is beautifully trapped between poles: hi-fidelity disco shimmer and YouTube digital grit, 70s and 80s material Product placement excess and early 21st century intangible commodity explosions, side chained sample madness against a clear and distinct producer and songwriter’s ear.
