After the release of Siamese Ratchet Funk, Dan Hacker (aka Muzzy) had us all highly anticipating his second installment of world wide ratchet funk. His newest track, Italian Ratchet Funk, did not fail to hit the mark dead on the head. A great combination of old world big band samples and his funny brand of funkiness leave you unable to help dancing, beaming with a shit eating grin. Dan shows his true colors and Detroit heritage, incorporating the jazzy hip hop style pioneered by beat makers like J Dilla into a blend of trap and sampledelia.
If you’re in the Detroit area, make sure to catch him opening up for Mimosa tomorrow night at Elekricity Nightclub in Pontiac. I’ll be there with Shannon, snapping photos of all your beautiful faces and interviewing the man himself.
Born and raised in Northern Michigan, my music background is more jazz and jam band than EDM, but my love of the funky and experimental brought me to love all things EDM. I’m currently studying wine, and hope that and music will take me all over the globe.
