With everything going on, Americans are all trying to find a way to Canada. Here’s your way out: Listen to the new song by The Funk Hunters, Defunk, and Akylla, called ‘Warn Ya’—out now via Westwood Recordings. Completely produced and performed by Canadian musicians, this song might not bring you there physically, but while you’re listening to it, you can dream of getting the funk out.
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.
ThE FUNK HUNTERS
The Funk Hunters and Defunk add their flavor with bombastic basslines and dynamic drops that stop you in your tracks. But the song’s magnum opus is Akylla’s passionate vocals that fill this deep, groovy track with soul. She gives us the inside scoop on the ‘Warn Ya’ saying, “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.”
Get ready to get the funk up, but don’t say we didn’t warn ya. You can listen to ‘Warn Ya’ by The Funk Hunters, Defunk, and Akylla below or on your choice of digital streaming provider. You can also buy the song for Bandcamp Friday and all profits go to the artist! Don’t forget to support the artists you love.
