Putting the moves on a cutie at the club is tricky business. You want to look like you're into it, but not too into it. You need a groove that's funky but sexy, effortless cool, and Pat Lok's "Somebody" -- premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Nov. 5) -- is your ace in the hole.
The Vancouver-born, L.A.-based producer and DJ has made his name as a smooth funk master, and "Somebody" sets the nu-disco lights to stun. He tapped "Lucid" collaborator Oktavian to lay down a silky vocal. He sings of meeting some hottie on the dance floor, and while it's too soon to be love, they're definitely the type to be more than just another fling.
"I actually started it over a year ago," Pat Lok tells Billboard Dance. "I had just met someone who I really sparked with and was going through the usual motions. We shared the same sense of humor, had an endless curiosity to learn all about each others lives. It’s about the moments where you let your mind run wild imagining a life together with someone."
