Canadian producer duo The Funk Hunters kick off 2021 on the right foot, the acclaimed duo joins forces with Defunk and Akylla for their first release of the year in “Warn Ya,” out now via Westwood Recordings.
The Funk Hunters told us that “A few months before Covid hit we got to see Big Gigantic play this tune live at Red Rocks during their set at the last Rowdytown. We had played it in a few DJ sets ourselves earlier that year while we were still finishing the production on it, but experiencing it alongside 10,000 other people when Big G dropped it was pretty surreal and this song has been a special one for us ever since. I feel like we’ve been waiting to release it forever! So I’m super excited to have this finally come out and with Defunk & Akylla on the track too it actually makes this release 100% Canadian which is something we’re also really proud of.”
Akylla added that “This song is about a magnetic love that can’t be broken or understood. We all have one of those. The Funk Hunters embody peace, love, unity and most importantly…the Funk! I’m always honoured to be in their vortex.”
Finally, Defunk told us that “Warn Ya is an epic, dark and mysterious journey that pulls the listener in with its long vocal builds and its stomping drops. It’s a song that fans have always asked about in my sets, and now its time has finally come.”
