Netsky releases Prince-inspired “TNT” featuring Chromeo
Netsky continues building buzz for his new album, III, by releasing his collaboration with funk lords Chromeo, titled “TNT.” This song, recorded months before Prince‘s death, was inspired by the classic Prince sound, specifically his 1979 hit “I Wanna Be Your Lover,” which set the stage for the early electro-funk era in the 1980s.
Anyone who has listened to even two minutes of Chromeo would be able to hear that their funky, retro style of dance music sound has been inspired by the likes of Prince since the beginning. The upbeat, feel-good drum & bass of Netsky meshes perfectly with the retro stylings and falsetto vocals from Chromeo, creating a dangerously catchy hybrid track that could very well be the start of a new sub genre.
Netsky’s new album, III, releases on June 3, and is available for preorder here.
