Flamingosis and Tokyo Megaplex have worked hard to cultivate a sample-heavy yet artistically innovative sound. Never failing to bring jazzy and danceable beats to people, the two Brooklyn-based producers have released their third collaborative effort, titled “Herbie.”
Released by SVNSET WAVES, an electronic label out of Texas, the track is a standout on the label’s SVMMER SVN Vol. 5 compilation. A seemingly simple house beat starts the song off, until the plucking of strings and gentle keys transform the track into a smooth, funky masterpiece. The two artists also throw in what might be the all-time most subtle and tasteful sample of the Ying Yang Twins’ iconic 2005 track, “Wait.” This is just another example of the producers’ clever craftsmanship, taking bits and pieces of many tracks and weaving them into a cohesive and fresh sound.
