Navid Izadi "Hard to Find (Instrumental)"

Iranian-born producer Navid Izadi's music comes imbued with nostalgia right from the start, recalling more than a few lost mid-'80s boogie records that have been reformed through busted 808s. The greatest strength of "Hard to Find" is the warm Rhodes chords that propel the throwback funk forward, sounds which are especially luminous once the San Francisco artist brings vocal pops and lazer-guided synth swells into the fold. It's refreshing to hear a sound that doesn't seem to have many contemporaries outside of Stones Throw mainstay Dâm-Funk, and there's more of that unfilted and infectious soul to hear on Izadi's recently released, five-track Feelin' Purple record for Wolf + Lamb.
