Reflecting on a monumental 2018, Vancouver duo The Funk Hunters are wrapping up one of the most pivotal years in their career to date. Whether it was being tapped by U2 for an official remix of their single “Love Is Bigger Than Anything In It’s Way” – a remix that would subsequently land TFH a Billboard Dance Club Chart number 1 – or winning Electronic/Dance Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, The Funk Hunter’s 2018 was nothing short of legendary. Following the March release of their critically acclaimed debut album, Typecast, the guys are keeping the funk alive with a series of official album remixes. Today we’re getting another glimpse into the Typecast remix album with a brand new spin on album cut “Come My Way” by BUKU.
With the original featuring frequent TFH collaborators LIINKS and Wet Paint, “Come My Way” sees the pair experiment with bass driven electronic music for a grandiose, room commanding sound. In enlisting BUKU to throw his own spin on the original, TFH intended for the track to be flipped on its head and take on whole new life – and BUKU has done just that. For BUKU’s rendition of “Come My Way,” the Pittsburgh producer puts a heavy dubstep spin on the original, amping up the tempo, synth and bassline, and successfully translating the track for bass heads everywhere. Suited up with steady womps and barraging breakdowns, BUKU’s take on “Come My Way” is nothing short of mesmerizing.
In addition to BUKU’s “Come My Way” remix, TFH’s Typecast Remix album also features artists including jackLNDN, K Theory, Kotek, and more. As for what else TFH have planned for the new year, the duo will be hitting the road for a number of North American tour dates (outlined below).
If this is your first introduction to The Funk Hunters, they have cultivated an unmistakable signature sound by creating forward-thinking electronic music that is influenced by old school soul, funk and hip-hop. This sound has been cultivated over 600 performances in 16 countries, including major festivals such as Coachella, Burning Man, Osheaga, Shambhala, and Electric Forest. Their music has also amassed over 10 million track streams across their catalogue of remixes and collaborations, including official remixes for Imagine Dragons, Selena Gomez, Big Gigantic, Gramatik, and now U2.
