Benedek "Ease Out"
Last year, Los Angeles producer and Funkmosphere collaborator Nicky Benedek (a.k.a. Benedek) began working with Peoples Potential Unlimited (or PPU), a Washington, DC label known for heralding obscure soul, boogie, and house from decades past. As one of the few modern artists on the roster, Benedek crafts funkified, bass-heavy music grounded in tradition and history, albeit with his own futuristic slant. "Ease Out"—taken from Benedek's recently released Untitled LP—shines up a throwback boogie production with a slinky bassline and prismatic pads, like a cruise-ready version of London tunesmith Lone.
