H aving only joined SoundCloud about a month ago, Ephwurd is a new deep house presence in the electronic music world. Regardless of the novelty of their SoundCloud page, their new song ‘Just Us’ (ft. Liinks) is straight fire. The bouncy house beat gives the track a clubby vibe, yet Liink’s deep male vocals and the slower, echoey synth line before the drop make me feel strangely distanced— like I am alone with Ephwurd during this track. The sneaky smoothness Ephwurd creates in ‘Just Us’ can also be found in their remix of Major Lazer’s ‘Lean On,’ and I’m hoping that the future of Ephwurd’s music will continue to have these fluid, underground vibes.
The best f-word is funk,
