Feel Good / Don't Be Afraid fulfills a lot of the expectations people had for Maduk's Viper debut. "Feel Good" is especially worth note, as it's pretty much a synthesis of everything right with today's liquid funk subgenre. The synths are twinkly and fast, and complement the meaty lower-register chords that make up the backbone of the song perfectly. "Feel Good" is a tune that fits well over a variety of settings: it would work at a club thanks to its standard yet fitting drums, it would feel at home on a radio station because of its poppy aspects (saxophone, catchy vocal sample, and simple, catchy melody), and it's great from a critical standpoint because it's an interesting piece that's immediate yet stays fascinating and fresh over a number of listens. The song is truly excellent, and it serves as a good addition to any liquid funk playlist as well as a good introduction to the genre.
