The Netflix-original TV series Narcos has been a big hit, especially the 2nd season that just came out a month ago. When shows like these catch fire, the fans usually dive deeply to know everything there is to know about the series, which in this particular case being based on the real life of Pablo Escobar. As we all know, Pablo Escobar revolutionized the cocaine industry in the late 70’s and all of the 80’s, accumulating a vast amount of wealth from it. This is where the Los Angeles native producer Autumn in June comes in; he has recently dropped a groovy track fittingly named “Cocaine Eighties”.
This young producer has capitalized on the Narcos craze and released a pretty badass tune that has all the classic 80’s sounds that made that decade great. Autumn in June keeps the funk but with a hint of modern electro, a slight taste of 90’s pop synthesizers. The true element that makes this track unbelievable is the use of the rhythm and lead blues guitar. The rhythm guitar keeps the late 70s disco funk flow while the lead guitar is a tad synthetic but so catchy with its use of the wah-wah pedal to complement the funky bass. All-around, it is such a great track that makes excellent use of each sound to make it pleasant for the listeners.
You can close your eyes and imagine that you are in the Narcos tv series living the good life of the 80’s when there was money in abundance. The ability to feel the high of the life without having to actually be in the Miami Vice era. Give Autumn in June your full attention and listen to “Cocaine Eighties”. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
