"B!unt Force - A Brighter Tomorrow [FREE DOWNLOAD]"

Brian Gustafson is a budding Austin producer who has a knack for seamlessly blending funk, hip-hop, and glitch. The future funk creator’s latest release is a five track EP entitled A Brighter Tomorrow. More like a funkier tomorrow, the new B!unt Force album heavily doses the listener with glitchy hip-hop samples and groovy bass whomps to create a genre-bending journey.

The EP immediately lays down heavy funk with its title track, sampling Mobb Deep’s “Survival of the Fittest” and Common’s “The Light.” The deep bass wurbbles and hip-hop samples in the opener build off each other to create an enticing reciprocal relationship.

“Difference” keeps the deep funk going, and is destined to make the listener feel like the embodiment of a true badass with its incorporation of glitchy bass and sexy guitar solos in Jay Z’s “03 Bonnie & Clyde.” The track may even make you want to find a sexy partner in crime and conquer the world.

“Changing Times” switches things up and adventures to a darker side through low octaves and samples “Gangsta” by Bun B. The track possesses less funk than the rest of the EP, but does incorporate an alluring sax solo that radiates brightness through its juxtaposition in the overall darkness of the track. “Changing Times (Funktastic Remix)” starts out with the same dark octaves, but as the remix title suggests it incorporates some seriously funky guitar whomps in with the “Gangsta” sample. The placement of the original “Changing Times” and it “Funktastik Remix” demonstrate just how much a little bit of funk can brighten things up.

“Funkadelic Frequencies” wraps the EP up with a soaring adventure of full-throttle funk, hyphey tempo and a sample of Big Kuntry King ft. Trey Songz “The Baddest.” Give this full EP a listen and enjoy B!unt Force’s carefully crafted future-funk music and refined taste in hip-hop. - The Untz

My god, Austin is just leaking bass music from the seams these days! As if the new release from Resonant Frequency yesterday wasn’t enough to get you going we have another brand new track from another talented couple of producers who are also doing their thing down there.

You have to admire how clean and groovy this entire EP is; its an extreme melding of funk, hip-hop and dubstep/electro that demands attention.
I’ve got to say my favorite track is “Funkadelic Frequencies”, featuring TechNoddo, also of Philos Records. The bassline is the epitome of groove and the sax and guitar are a nice touch on top of some heavy synth. - WhiteRaverRafting


Scientists at Philos University have been hard at work as of late; it seems two preeminent researchers by names of B!unt Force and Kinetik Groove have developed sound waves that make the human body physically unable to stop dancing. They’re calling this finding “Time to Live” and have been kind enough to pass their formula to WhiteRaverRafting to test the concoction.
We, of course, are talking about two of the hottest electro-soul/future funk producers in the game right now, B!unt Force and Kinetik Groove of Philos Records. These two young men have similar, yet very distinct styles, and the clash of their sounds is a match made in heaven. “Time to Live” is an incredibly intoxicating brew of funk and glitch-hop, featuring a head-nod inducing rhythm and the vocalics of Jim Morrison of The Doors and rapper Jay-Z. If you can’t get enough of this track, have no fear: the two plan to drop a collaboration album on August 14, just a few short months from now.

"Artist Spotlight: Philos Records"

"B!unt Force, the brainchild of Brian Gustafon, has been performing for a few years now and has already made quite a name for himself, sharing the stage with the likes of Kill Paris, Archnemesis, SuperVision, Robotic Pirate Monkey and more. B!unt Force began as a reggae band Gustafon was apart of back in 2009, but once the group disbanded, Gustafon took on the moniker himself when he began making beats out of his parent’s garage basement. His style is very uptempo hip-hop and funk/jazz driven, with electronic elements of glitch, electro and even trance at times evident." -

"B!unt Force - Artist Showcase"

Brian Gustafson is making waves early in his dance music career under the alias of B!unt Force. This Texas native embraces experimentation in every genre from Moombahcore to Trance, and ceaselessly aspires to make groovable, feel good music.

Though B!unt Force only began producing electronic dance music in Spring for 2011, his talent is undeniably innate. Recently, he has received attention from Big Chocolate, having finished in the top 10 of his remix competition for his track Blue Milk.

B!unt Force has already been recognized enough to open for artists like Kill Paris, Robotic Pirate Monkey, CRNKN, Big C, and Feature

Cuts. He has also received support from one of his biggest inspirations, Minnesota, who has featured his remix of the Nas track, The World Is Yours, in his sets (this has also been featured in a previous Remix-Nation drop box post). B!unt Force admires Minnesota for bringing that perfect fusion of electro and hip-hop, creating funky and invigorating tracks. He was also invited to play a showcase with Candyland, Nobody Beats the Drum, Sazon Booya, Archnemesis and Team Bayside High during SXSW 2013.

This young producer is not far behind his idol, as he already has a portfolio of eclectic and unique tracks. Having played guitar in reggae band in high school and always having a love for rock, B!unt Force’s influences range from Kill Paris all the way to artists like Slightly Stoopid, String Cheese, Sublime and Pink Floyd.

B!unt Force’s most recent track in the works, Office, is a perfect example of his spry production ingenuity (Click the link to grab it for free!). Recently, he was asked to remix Robotic Pirate Monkey’s The Walls. The relaxed down tempo track was injected with a little glitch and some slow and sweet wobbles for an added dose of funk that does not distract from the intention of the original track.

Below, you can find B!unt Force’s music. Be sure to check out all of his tracks, there is quite an array of styles and sounds. He was also gracious enough to release his Arrival EP, a collection of original House tracks and remixes, for free!

If you’re in the Austin, Tx area in the near future, catch B!unt Force opening for Paul Basic with Psymbiotic on April 18th at Kingdom Austin Night Club and Supervision on June 8th.







Blunt Force is the musical vision of Houston, Texas native Brian Gustafson. Mixing elements of hip-hop, jazz, and modern-day electronics, B!unt Force evokes visions of outer space with a little dash of funk and glitch.
