After almost a year since their last single The Traffic have finally delighted us with a new release and what a 45 it is.
Those of you that are familiar with The Traffic will know what to expect and this release doesn’t disappoint. Hard-Hitting Instrumental Funk Re-interpretations of classic tunes is their business. But this release comes with something of an added bonus. The B Side features their first track with vocals and to say it’s stunning is no exaggeration.
But first lets talk about the A Side. After the huge success of their last release California Love / No Through Road. The Traffic sifted through heaps of tracks to cover and finally settled on Harder Better Faster Stronger by Daftpunk. As they always do, they took the essence of the track and gave it the special Traffic treatment and the result is a pure dancefloor destroyer!
Flip the record over and you’ll be delighted with The Traffic’s debut original vocal track. Featuring the amazing vocal talents of Thando & Francois this track is on a neosoul / soulful hiphop tip with a laidback funk backdrop. Making this 45 a killer double sider.
Due to be released on 20 August. Preorders are open now and you can place your order via The Traffic’s page on Bandcamp.
If you have missed out on any of the previous releases by The Traffic then they currently have a deal on their Bandcamp page to purchase all 5 of their singles for $75. Be quick as these packs are limited and will sell out.
