QDUP & WARP 9 feat. FLEX MATTHEWS: Bodyrock (2016)

Bodyrock Qdup Warp 9 Flex MatthewsQdup, Warp 9 and Flex Matthews get the full lock on the Bodyrock with their new collaborative single, and it’s every bit the slice of twenty-first century synth-drenched slice of bass-funk electric boogaloo you’d expect from the name.
