Out of all the tracks that have been sent to use via Soundcloud, this Everett James song is quite possibly, getting the most spins.

The Atlanta artist’s song “Sexy Sexy,” is a take of the tradition of dance floor stepping in the vein R Kelly’s Step In The Name of Love and Gerald Levert – Didn’t We. But it seems James speeds up the temp of the traditional Chicago step to create a futuristic version of the sound that makes family reunions crunk.

But that’s where the family comparisons stop. James’ laces the track with a funky backbeat, some smoothed out keys, and some sexy vocals, making this some upbeat “baby makin’ music.” Even off of one song, Mr James is earning his title as “the new impresario of electro funk.”

What do y’all think?
