Image: 1610224 Production duo Computa Games take the most slamming synth
bass, the crispest drum machine hits, and the overall classic vibes of
80’s dance-funk tunes to new aural heights. Sculpted using the best
modern studio techniques, the “Cosmic Dispatch” EP fuses funk,
disco, soul and electro to various combinations, fitting the feel of
the classiest nightclub or the grittiest backyard party. Each individual
tune on the EP pairs with a unique vocalist or collaborator, as the
project features guests Lovechild, B Bravo, Jackie Rain, Natalita,
and E. Live. There is something killer and personalized on this EP
for every type of dancer, funkster, and headnodder Around.
The Computa Games project is the product of the combined efforts
of Martin Arceneaux and Chris Arenas. Joining their deep roots of
live funk, electronic/live production and DJing, they formed in the fall
of 2012, and quickly released two singles on the Supermart Produce
label. The two debuted their live set at Monarch in San Francisco,
with follow up performances at SXSW in Austin, and Tipitina’s New
Orleans. The group’s third single “Rock Creek (Revenge)” was
released exclusively on Beatport, where it was a featured track on
the site’s Funk/R&B page and stayed in the Funk/R&B Top100 for
nearly 2 months, peaking in the top15. The group then released
the “Grand Design” EP in September 2013 on Super Mart Records,
followed quickly by a remix of The Pendletons single “Let Me Turn
You On” featuring K-Maxx, and then a remix of New Orleans based
funk band Galactic’s “Heart Of Steel”, featuring the legendary Irma
Thomas. In October of 2015 Computa Games released their first
vinyl 7” on ABC records with “Do Your Thing” featuring K-Maxx b/w
“Feel Right 2Nite” which promptly established them in the burgeoning
modern funk scene. Their follow up 7” was released in January 2017
with the single “Computer Rock” b/w “Computer Rock (West Coast
Remix)” on the New Orleans label Super Jock Records. Computer
Rock garnered the duo more accolades with critics and fans alike.
