Essentials: “Dysfunctional (ft. SAKIMA)” – SATICA

If you were searching for a tropical-infused track with a West Coast twang, look no further than the latest effort by California-based vocalist SATICA. Based in Long Beach, Moving Castle‘s SATICA lends her vocals in a fusion between pop and R&B that complements a future bass soundscape. The minimal approach in production highlights SATICA’s captivating tone laced throughout the track. As the song wavers on, UK-based SAKIMA lends his talents in rap-sing fashion with his breathy vocals that melts as it hits your ears. As the most notable feature of the song, “Dysfunctional” progresses into a nuanced duet that showcases each vocalist’s abilities in various instances. AOBeats and Mike Derenzo handles the production and puts their stamp on the future R&B genre in cohesive fashion. The instrumentation contains the perfect blend of bouncy tropical rhythm and West Coast synths that interweave an 808-drum beat.
