The work day is coming to a close and I’m in the mood for some feel good sample-based music. I’ve been really digging the latest track from US producer Nanuq called It’s Love Again. Lots of filters, compression, loops, and a really bouncy groove throughout. It’s the good stuff that makes your feet twitch and your funky bones itch.
He’s also got a lot of other great tunes on his profile, so be sure to peruse and don’t forget to follow.
Honey, it ain’t complicated. I just wanna dance with you.
Out now on Traxsource with the b-side Kill The Kandle. Infinite love for J Paul Getto, show them yours.
Whoa, Solidisco are definitely having a good 2012. We’ve been following them since Biacco and DJ Dstar first formed the duo over a year ago and they’ve undeniably and very successfully established their collaborative project on the global disco/funk/french scene. Enjoying tens of thousands of plays on each of their tracks, these guys are blowing up clubs and pushing vibes that even celebrities can’t help getting down to.
And good thing for us, their madness don’t stop and today we’re getting down to their latest. Icona Pop are a Swedish outfit that had a lot of people buzzing last year with their debut single Manners that was release in 2010 on Kitsuné. Their latest single I Love It has now exploded on the scene as a massive club mover, and Solidisco lined it up in their sights, set phaserz to kill, and pulled the trigger. DJs, you can grab this discothèque weapon for free.
And when that’s over, get your fill of soulful funk as the American duo sample from one of the masters, George Benson. Turn Around is designed to make you feel good, and dance ’till you sweat. Oh, and it’s free too, nothing but love.
Fifteen was a summer dream when Goldroom released it at the cusp of the warm season. Like ripples in the sand Josh Legg’s original production washed over your mind and settled you into a day dream state, an standard and much enjoyed effect of his flavour of Californian nu disco.
But Josh is not the only mood-setter in the genre, and today we set our focus across the globe to Germany. Final DJs have more than established their style of nu disco, with their 80s influence, amazing synth work, and ability to construct a unique atmosphere. We were excited to see that they lent their prowess to Fifteen, in this nearly eight minute long and beautifully crafted rendition. And you can’t ask for better timing, on the edge of the cool season Basti and Thomas come bearing their musical journey that will certainly emote warm feelings and fond memories.
From Britain and based in France, Francophilippe has been dealing damage with his signature bass-driven melee of electronic funk, rock, and house, shaking clubs and lifting feet across the world. With a profile that has been very active in the last year or so this UK funk ambassador has made it his duty that every booty in the club is up and getting down, performing his civil chores to the fullest. With a terribly addicting style and an upcoming release, we were given the fortunate opportunity to have a chat with Alex Hindle, the Englishman behind the very french-sounding Francophilippe, to talk about his music and the age-old contemplation of… where to find the best fish and chips.
After the jump! (more…)
Phew, damn! For explosive dance floor energy, you can always depend on UK producer Go Go Bizkitt!. I can’t think of very many disco house producers that we encounter that can really channel that hip hop aggression and attitude into a peak hour weapon like Go Go does. We’ve seen him before teaming up with Shawn Elliot and this time he’s collabing with Canadian emcee/producer Muneshine. When listening to the original, you can’t really imagine club-tempo disco on the track, but this result is fantastic and you just gotta have it.
Thank God It’s… Funky, and you can have it any day of the week. Get on this.
And be sure to keep a close eye on Meester Beezkitt, word on the street is he has a lot more hotness on the way!
