Album Review: Funkstatik’s Living On The Edge

Funkstatik Living on the Edge Mile High Sound Movement

The Mile High Sound Movement is at it again with another great release from the Denver-based collective. Matt Rygol aka Funkstatik is one of the collective’s recent roster additions, and released his second EP with the collective’s label this week titled Living On The Edge.

Living On The Edge is a slow-building glitch bass album that takes you on a smooth journey from start to finish. The EP opens with “Making Space,” a dreamy, relaxing but invigorating track perfect for any time you need to focus or slowly get moving for the day. Funkstatik takes it up a notch with the next track, “I’ve Got Your Back,” with a style reminiscent of Pretty Lights and Blunt Force–though very much uniquely his own.

“Sorta Like That” brings the weird, taking you into a dark, funky, underwater world. Our favorite track is the closer, “Lush Life.” “Lush Life” ends the EP on the strongest note, with a funk-infused, hazy melody that is versatile enough to fit many moods and occasions.

Overall, the album is unobtrusive but driving, the perfect backdrop to getting those last minute projects done in 2016. Living On The Edge is the perfect companion to meditate, fall in love or get down in the very late hours to.

You can get your hands on this EP–and we highly recommend you do–in variety of ways; stream it on Soundcloud or Spotify, or support local artists with a $2 album purchase on Bandcamp.
