Funkin Matt “I Wish” Out Today!

Posted on Nov 27th, 2012 by Mr Goldbar

The endless struggle between man and machine finally gets the soundtrack it deserves thanks to Funkin Matt, whose stomping, massive “I Wish” is a cyborg anthem for the ages. Get it now on Beatport!

Already a staple of festival sets from A-Trak, Crookers, Nicky Romero and many more, the song’s metallic grooves and yearning vocal (“I wish I was a robot… I wish I could fly…”) smash together to create perhaps the finest track yet from this Oslo up-and-comer. B-side”Rasp” is just as electric, with big room chords cascading over a massive, robo-voice bassline. Plug in and play ‘em out…

Preview the two new tracks (and more FM goodies) on his recent “I Wish” promo mix.
