Cat Dealers Rework Robbie Rivera’s U.S. Hit ‘Funkatron’

Cat Dealers

Cat Dealers have been on a roll since the year started, and their recent studio output proves it.

While early-2022 releases such as ‘Club Addict‘ (with FTampa and Spankox) and ‘Stronger‘ (with HRRTZ) continue to thrive across the international dance music scene, the Brazilian brothers are amplifying the momentum with a high-energy rework of Robbie Rivera‘s U.S. hit ‘Funkatron‘, which already hit #9 in 1001Tracklist’s Trending charts and received support from the likes of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Nicky Romero, R3HAB, TiĆ«sto and Timmy Trumpet ahead of today’s release.

Having already revved up the crowd at Lollapalooza Brazil during the pair’s live set, Cat Dealers‘ rework of Robbie Rivera‘s timeless 2001 classic is what you’d call a peak-time floor-filler. Supporting the raw and undeniably iconic melody with big, groove-heavy drops and a truckload of suspense, this modern rendition of ‘Funkatron‘ is the sonic thrill of a lifetime.

We were searching for a track to work on and create a new version of with a sound that’s more current”, Cat Dealers share.

“During our research, we stumbled onto this huge electronic music classic called ‘Funkatron’, which our label, Armada Music, very conveniently had the rights of. So we brought that idea to the A&R team and they told us to work on it. When we had our first demo, they sent it to Robbie Rivera and he liked it and approved it! We then managed to make multiple versions of the song to test in our shows, and it became the track we were able to test the most since the comeback of the shows. We are super excited about this track and the feedback from the fans has been amazing, both on the dance floor and on social media.
