The Funk Hunters are composed of the Canadian duo Nick Middleton and Duncan Smith. The longtime friends have an undeniable and organic vibe that can be felt universally in their music. They have achieved great success in the duration of their music career and have gained well-deserved recognition. They earned the title of Electronic/Dance Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards. Furthermore, they were the first electronic act to receive the Canadian Independent Music Association Rose Gold certification.

The duo have garnered over ten million streams due to their signature and incomparable sound. Their presence in the music world has caught the attention of EDM tycoons like GRiZ and Big Gigantic. They were personally chosen by GRiZ to accompany him on his Ride Waves Season 2 tour.

Today, The Funk Hunters are combining their talents with two super talented artists, Defunk and Akylla. Their newest serving is an original single titled “Warn Ya” via Westwood Recordings. The producers expressed their deep connection to the song being that it is representative of their roots stating “I feel like we’ve been waiting to release it forever! So, I’m super excited to have this finally come out and with Defunk & Akylla on the track too it actually makes this release 100% Canadian which is something we’re also really proud of.”

“Warn Ya” begins with a moody tone accompanied by powerful vocals courtesy of Akylla. The foreboding tune builds into a horn-fuelled dancefloor heater, featuring strong and uplifting bass. The duo’s excitement to unleash this track to the public is now clear as day.

We love this new hit-to-be from The Funk Hunters, Defunk, and Akylla. How does it make you feel? Let us know in the comments or on Heart It Here First’s socials.
