It’s been five years since the release of Wolfgang Gartner’s debut album, Weekend in America, and he seems just as excited as his fans for his next full-length, 10 Ways To Steal Home Plate, which drops today via Kindergarten Recordings. The DJ and producer’s first song from the ten-track LP, “Turn Up,” was released back in October, and a few days ago Gartner shared a preview of the album on his Facebook. Now, we have “Hurricane Slurricane,” which features eternal soulster Dâm-Funk and E-40.
The hydraulic track is a slicked-up, waxed-down mix vaguely reminiscent of S.O.S. Band’s 1980 glitter bomb “Take Your Time,” with a chorus that you’ll find yourself inadvertently whistling hours later. Dâm-Funk opens “Hurricane Slurricane” with the sing-song come-on, “Do you wanna ride with me? / Do you wanna sip with me?” as short, rhythmic runs (that might remind you of Sonic the Hedgehog 2‘s soundtrack) blast out unexpectedly during the verses.
