Cohuna Beatz is Franz Johann, a producer and DJ based out of Vienna specializing in a slinky style of downtempo dub-electro-funk. ODC (standing for ‘Oberwart Downbeat Center’) is a 12-track album that fully expresses the Cohuna Beatz sound. The grooves are gritty and pulsing throughout, with buzzing synthesizer melodies and techy blasts of funk sending vibes to smoky, strobe-lit dance floors. These beats are extra-chunky, from the psychedelic dopeness of “Down Unter” to the mid-tempo techno throwback of “Talking Bout Love” to the ominous but sexy grind of “Nitz Rebb Garage.” It’s all beaming out of Batusim Studio Oberwart and coming at you from Franz Johann’s B.A.B.A. Records imprint. Listen loosely and feel that Vienna groove!
