This week’s Song of the Week comes from a favorite act around these parts: Sofi Tukker!
After making waves with their undeniably fun Jake Shears-co-penned smash “Fuck They” over the summer, the New York City-based duo – Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern – are already back at it with a monster slice of EDM perfectly suited for late-night evenings out with your besties.
Much like the uninhibited feel of “Fuck They,” their latest called “Best Friend” sees Sofi Tukker letting loose across a purely wild, dance-ready production. Except this time around, they’ve fittingly invited some friends to join in on the fun. Who are these friends you ask? Well none other than Jon ALi favorites The Knocks, Nervo and Tokyo native Alisa Ueno.
As the title suggests, “Best Friend” sounds like a straight-up jam sesh with many cooks in the kitchen, utilizing sax, bass guitar, cowbells and other instrumentation over a propulsive drum pulse. Sophie throws in her signature sing-talk chants and vocals, while Nervo and Alisa chime in throughout with some bars. It’s a non-stop party from the moment you press play – I LIVE!
