F3’s ‘Magnificent’


Hot on the heels, and we mean hot on the heels in the same month, as their last single Congo Bongo Tel Aviv production duo F3 are releasing Magnificent next week via Cardiff’s Pole Position Recordings. It’s already out on Beatport but hits other outlets on Monday with a reMix package chock full of awesomeness.

Magnificent is a blissful slice of Disco House. F3 mix up some mix House riffs and retro synths with a low-down dirty groove, but what really lifts this track is the suitably used vocal samples and the drifting, haunting saxophone. Washing in and out of the track amongst the 80’s riffs it really gives this track a smooth late-night feel. Our boy ODahl’s take on the track lifts the party mood as he drops in his trademark squelchy funk bass energetic lead lines. Dutchman Nathan Swiss also lends his weight to the reMix package by upping the Funk quota considerably. The Swiss reMix lays this a deep, complex Funk bassline and extra helpings of retro synth stabs. Featuring additional reMix work from Phunktastike and Matt Prehn, the whole single package is nostalgic summer grooves and deep sexy beats. Definitely one to play late into the night.

F3’s new single


Silhouette Music are fast becoming one of the Dreamwave/Nu-Disco labels to watch. All of their recent released have been right on the money. Not only that but they have been giving support to some top up and coming artists. In the case of their next single it’s relative newcomer F3, two producers from Tel Aviv, Israel, who gets the labels support.

The single, Congo Bongo, is (despite the title) a slick, and pretty complex, Nu-Disco tune with enough Electro Boogie overtones to give it that slight edge. There’s  a really nice way the stomping, percussion fuelled, rhythm plays against the floaty vocal samples, the hard and soft of the track adding to the comfortable party groove. There’s a bunch of reMixes on the single, covering a few different styles, but we have to give a shout out to our boy Silenx, who completely flips the script on the track, morphing it into a deep, atmospheric Synthwave instrumental peice. A majestic dark future soundtrack which slowly builds to a melodic and optimistic finale, both to the track and the single as a whole. Every single or EP should end like that.
