DJ/Producer 45trona UT brands himself as having a passion for dance, trance, electronica, and funk—all of which I found to hold a profound artistic presence (in blend) on his new album Funkspatial. The funky wobble and winding effects of the album’s opener (and title track) set a very funk/electro tone—one that is not eclipsing in the album’s entirety. 45trona can mix it up; as can be heard in “Exploration Station” with its retro, dance hall theme: escalated by a hard hitting pulse build-up, turned tantalizing beat.

Tracks like “Let’s Start The Party” and “Planet Jsb” bring it back stylistically, with some nostalgic touches of euro-trance—the latter incorporating a unique hypnotic spin on the respective synth. Funkspatial really does touch on the elements of funk, trance, electronica, and dance—the album’s ninth track “Planet D’argo” serving as the album’s best all-around dance number: high-tempo in its build up and vibrant in execution. The album is a nice change of scenery for the EDM scene—so currently cluttered with “copy & paste” BPMs and  repetitive bass drops. You can grab your copy of Funkspatial on iTunes today.
