We find that adding a little soul is extremely important, but let’s be honest, blues can really bum you out. With how privileged we are in the 21st century, soul and blues seem to be confined to a despondent time period reminding us of an unprogressive and backwards nation. Luckily we have John McCarten AKA Manic Focus to demonstrate the genre in a modern and positive way, allowing those of us who weren’t born in the 50’s to enjoy the extremely emotional creative outlet in an uplifting way.
The Chicago-based producer showcases electro-soul and glitch funk around the perfect mixing of post dubstep, hip-hop and r&b. If you like his remix of Krooked Drivers’ “Nothing Is Lonely,” make sure to check out his SoundCloud where he offers some really funky originals and remixes for free.
