FRANKMUSIK, “Do What”
Now based out of Los Angeles, British electronic performer Frankmusik, written about much in these blog pages over the years, returns with his first new solo music in two years called “Do What”. This one could be an extension and update of some of Vincent Frank’s best known music from 2013’s Between album, such as, “Captain”, “Map” or “Cake”. He now may have stepped aside from his highly personal and melodic independent releases of the past few years, “AW17”, “Daybreak” and “For You”, in favour of returning to dance music. “Do What” is definitely a welcome reboot, with Vince playing with and distorting his own wonderful voice to interesting effect. The rhythm is carried by consistently punchy house beats and piano riffs which will sound perfect in clubs. And the pitched-up vocal near the end definitely provides the whacked-out feel of the earlier songs mentioned above without being as frenetic. I’m hoping that this new amusing and entertaining Frankmusik sound in “Do What” is back to stay!
