MP3: Crush Effect – “Let the Good Times Roll”
Cali Electro/Funk/Soul Duo Releases Coachella-Debuted Single For Free Download and For Sale on iTunes, Premiere via The Dankles
Critical Praise for Crush Effect:
“Crush Effect is emerging with a sound that should not go unnoticed by any electronic music listener.” – Heady Tunes
“Until the Next is an electro-soul masterpiece.” – Sensible Reason
“Nice and smooth, with that beach-cruising feel every funkadelic being loves to hear.” – The Untz
“Funk, jazz, soul, glitch hop and all the bass you could want.” – District Flow
With “Let the Good Times Roll,” SoCal Electro/Soul/Funk duo Crush Effect have transformed Earl King‘s classic “Come On (Let the Good Times Roll)” by incorporating an arrangement of speaker-rattling basslines and buzzing electronic effects. Different from previous covers by Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, among others, the chorus is soaked in auto-tune and loops as a repetitive mantra atop a plethora of synthesizers, scattered drums, and multi-layered guitar riffs. Debuted at Coachella‘s Do Lab stage, “Let the Good Times Roll” is being released for free download and for purchase on iTunes, premiering via The Dankles.
The new single follows the March release of Crush Effect’s Until the Next EP, which Sensible Reason calls “an electro-soul masterpiece.” The EP showcases their unique style, blending soul with jazz influences along with modern, bass-heavy EDM sounds. Also available for free download, the EP has gained the duo critical praise and a ton of new fans. As stated by Heady Tunes, “Crush Effect is emerging with a sound that should not go unnoticed by any electronic music listener.”
Crush Effect has been compiling a list of accomplishments dating back a couple of years, with the two winning the Future Music Magazine 2010 “Claude Von Stroke Remix Competition, while also scoring as a runner up in Kaskade’s 2010 Beatport.com Dynasty Remix Competition. Recently, the duo has gotten placements in a nationally aired Kia commercial with Blake Griffin, along with a Southern Comfort commercial.

Crush Effect Background:
Soaked in melody, the newest release from southern California duo Crush Effect is nothing short of spectacular. The pristine production throughout their latest release, Until The Next, evokes imagery of crystal clear water and sandy beaches, perfect for its Spring release earlier this March. Pulling from the infectious influences of jazz and soul merged with modern bass-heavy EDM, these two renowned musicians have created something truly special. Fans of Pretty Lights, Flume, and Rustie will feel cozy with both the visceral and buoyant sounds throughout. In addition to their success with their EP, the group has had some great placements – a Kia commercial with Blake Griffin, a Southern Comfort commercial. Crush Effect is releasing their single, “Let the Good Times Roll,” as a follow up to Until The Next.
