Also known as Austin Collins, AU5 brings another killer listen to Liquid Stranger’s Wakaan. Closing off the year in wickedly groovy style is “Funk Ain’t Even,” which is a collaboration with Nasty Purple.
High-energy vocals meet a striking bassline and it has nods to future bass, disco and electronic. Au5 explains the track is “the inner philosophy of funk, reimagined within the context of heavy bass music. We’ve made modern EDM production bear funk’s imprint, creating something uniquely tangible yet allusive.”
