Lo-Fi-Fnk

Change Channel

Blending disco whoosh with raw emotion is a rum old task: do it right and it’s transcendental; do it wrong and you’re not quite sure if you’re supposed to be dancing or sobbing. Happily, Lo-Fi-Fnk get it more or less right. Ecstatic punkfloor disco crammed full of buzzy eight-bit synthesiser, digital horn blasts, choppy gated beats and cooing male-female vocals. It vibrates with heart, like a Daft Punk robots having a “Luke… I am your father” moment.
