The newest track from Panda Funk is a soulful, multifaceted tune titled “Infected” by producer GARABATTO and talented singer Charlee Muse. “Infected” weaves a tale of the juxtaposing emotions and self-medication that results from futile attempts at trying to fill a void with instant gratification. Muse’s poignant vocals are accentuated by GARABATTO’s deliberate, resonant bassline and eloquently minimalist melodies. As Charlie puts it, “the vibe behind GARABATTO’s beat gave off dark, but still, light feeling that inspired the lyrical story of trying to fill an empty heart with temporary satisfaction. It was so fun to work with GARABATTO and I love the song so much!” Rest assured that GARABATTO is not making music that fits inside the genre box. “It’s so unique and it’s kind of a new genre, I would call it slow-mo tropical house,” says the Spanish DJ and producer. One thing is for certain – if you’re in need of some emotional catharsis during tough times, press play on “Infected” for a groovy, poignant release.
Panda Funk’s slogan is “more than a record label, it’s a movement,” and this collective of forward-thinking artists has certainly embodied that motto by igniting dance floors around the globe with their party-friendly music. Their influences range from house, techno, electro and bass music, making for a contemporary collection of sounds that can’t be fit into just one genre. One of their artists, the Spanish DJ and producer Javier Falquet – better known as GARABATTO – is taking the electronic scene by storm with his ability to fuse catchy melodies and powerful beats. GARABATTO’s musical background and training as a drummer gives him both a deep technical knowledge and an intuitive artistic perspective that echoes in his unique productions, such as “Infected,” his recent release “Jungle” and “Back Home” with Jay Silva. After honing his skills in Los Angeles and London and working alongside some of the industry’s most recognized artists, GARABATTO is ready to shine with the continued support of Panda Funk.
