Sample based hip-hop is becoming increasingly en vogue, and with songs like this one, it’s not hard to see why.  The UK’s David Powell, who makes music under the moniker Je Suis Un Funky Homme, created this tune by cutting and pasting from Aretha Franklin’s “One Step Ahead.”  Powell cites neo French electro artists like Breakbot and Madeon as his production influences, which is no surprise after listening to the track.  What draws attention to this song in particular is how expertly crafted it is both in terms of his attention to detail and its overall structure.  Glamorous, aloof, exciting.
