Hear the funk-driven mastery of Bastien Carrara’s ‘Throwdown’

The Parisian maestro returns to Rawthenticity with a deeply layered slice of house.

Allowing his music to speak for itself against an obfuscated public presence, rising producer Bastien Carrara’s contribution to the house spectrum is entirely unique, bringing an appreciation for the sounds of the old school to the table.

Composed on an MPC 2000XL in Carrara’s basement, Got 2 Luv is a heavyweight collection of emotive and sample-heavy tracks, with opener ‘Throwdown’ perhaps the release’s standout, and a perfect example of the producer’s retrograde ethos.

Against a backdrop of funk-based samples, and driven along by a filthy broken beat, ‘Throwdown’ takes a deep house template into pastures new with its jacking groove. Get in to it below.

Got 2 Luv is out 4th October on Rawthenticity, pre-order here.
