Future Classic: .Casting “Heatwave EP”

Soul & Funk

For this week’s show, I had my good friend David Ryshpan drop by for a all Brazilian set; on my counterpart, I started the show with a few slow jams, including one from .CASTING, an upcoming producer who just released a month ago his HEATWAVE EP.

I’ve played mostly all the tracks on previous shows, and “Ménage Trois” made the cut this week; it’s a sexy slowdown erotic tempo anthem, sprinkled with French female vocals that sounds like they’re from a forgotten Saint-Tropez LP. .CASTING demonstrates how he can transform classic boogie samples into new realms, and reminds us that future funk is not only about dance floor heaters.

.CASTING is on the Stratford CT collective; they’ve been on a strong come up since the beginning of 2014, with steady releases from VentureX, Walkie Talkie (who does most of their amazing artwork), Winter Inter, and a few compilations, all at a name your price format. Make sure to support them at stratfordct.bandcamp.com.
