CAPYAC’s “Ooeeooeeoo” Is Funk-Lathered Nu-Disco

Los Angeles electronic duo CAPYAC dance their way into “Ooeeooeeoo”, the final single from their forthcoming album CAPYAC FOREVER.

CAPYAC, the duo of Eric Peana (nicknamed P. Sugz) and Delwin Campbell (Potion), leave no room for subtlety on their latest single. With zapped-in arcade synths and punctuating horn flutters, “Ooeeooeeoo” is funk-lathered nu-disco with bell-bottom flair and the dancefloor jam-packed. There are the requisite four-on-the-floor drums and sticky bass licks, courtesy of Campbell, but the guest list continues with tambourine jangles, phone rings, African drums—even what sounds like typewriter clacks, a sword unsheathing, and the knock brush notification.

Peana emcees, like a high-and-horny slick-voiced counterpart to Rob Parissi. “You so bad, you so good, the way you rub my foot,” he flirts, each come-on delivered with a nudge. The outro takes a complete 180º, blurred-out with the soft-focus of a lullaby; but the duo’s signature levity remains as Peana croons, “Who the fuck are you?”, like a lounge singer at last call.
