Following on from the apparent viral success of his 2020 track ‘50/50’ and his very recent release ‘I Think I’m In Love’ feat Todd Edwards, Vantage returns with his second release of 2021 ‘I Found You’, out now on FFRR.
Vantage is the French born and Osaka based producer who is possibly a leading figure in the ‘future funk’ genre, an electronic music sub-genre that takes inspiration from ‘80s funk and disco and ’00s dance. Here he delivers a whole new contemporary spin and feel, blending the French touch sound with vapourwave and house.
With new release ‘I Found You’ he builds in his filtered disco sound for a summer-infused track that uses a range of analogue synths and instruments to create his tone with a vibe and feel of something straight out of the ‘80s. It has a funky bass guitar, vocoder vocals, bright filtered loops and retro synths stabs throughout.
The vocalist is Swedish singer Benjamin Ingrosso, nominated by MTV in 2018 as Best Swedish Act and is the cousin of Sebastian Ingrosso.
Emerging onto the scene in 2015, Vantage has since cultivated an immersive world at the intersection of sound and technology. Involved in digital Pop Art and consistently dropping new NFT artworks, he has a belief that music and imagery combined should do the talking.
He has created a visual world to coincide with his music on 2015 album ‘Metro City’ then continuing his second album ‘J-Funk City’ in 2019. More recently he saw his re-released single, ‘50/50’ becoming a viral hit via TikTok as well as remixing Dua Lipa in the process.
Vantage ‘I Found You’ (feat Benjamin Ingrosso) is out now on FFRR.
