Hey DUBCO fam, my name’s Imarami and I’m here to provide you with something a little different every now and then. I introduced myself last week with the Break Science interview, but this is the first chance I’ve had to share some new music with you. Funk Me will be a weekly column featuring the best in nu-disco, funk, electro-house, and anything else that has some soul. For this week, I’ve put together a list of nine of my favorite tracks from the last year, a group of tracks that make you wish for summer road-trips just as much as sweaty beachside-dances. Now don’t get me wrong, I love the wompage of hard-hitting dubstep as much as the next bro, but there’s something undeniably sexy and hip-shakingly groovy about the reviving disco movement. So strap in, you’re in for a wild ride.
