The disco house train has left the platform and is gaining speed. In recent times I have blabbed about how the current electronic music scene is leaning back towards some of it's earlier roots of disco and house. Well it's now clearing evident with the proof of current production that disco house is becoming increasily popular. This is a good thing in my eyes/ears as I'm a big fan off this energetic, fun, dance music. So hear are a few that have caught my attention recently.
This is a track that I heard Aeroplane DJ's play at Parklife and it went off. Their set was fun and had a great party vibe. This was one of the many nu-disco driven tracks played. Don Diablo's work seems to vary greatly in style and substance. This is definately some of his better stuff and shows what he is capable of.
Youth Speed Trouble Cigarettes (Don Diablo Remix) - Cassius
An artist that I'm a big fan of haven't given due props on Staying Sick is His Majesty Andre. He's an English born and based producer/DJ that has been around for ages and from some reason doesn't seem to gain much attention outside of Europe, whcih he should. His style can't be pigeon holed as his music is based around careful, clever and clear production. This is one of his more energetic disco house remixes that he seems to be keen on currently. (More His Majesty Andre - Coming Soon!)
In My Eyes (His Majesty Andre Remix) - Burns
I first heard the Riva Starr remix of this Malente track in a set. I then copped the single and discovered there's a unusual drop off about two thirds of the way through the song. This GlowTape! edit covers it right up by creating a sneaky lil 30 sec build up (at the 3:18 mark) that actually adds to the song by helping breaking it up a bit!
I Like It (GlowTape! Lieks An Edit) - Malente Vs Riva Starr
This last one was brought to my attention my latest crush, Duck Sauce. It's another upbeat disco house track. I can't sit still and listen to this.
Bruxism Groove - Titan
This is a track is less disco/house than the others. It's tacken from Zombie Nations 2006 studio album 'Black Toys' and still remains to be funky and fresh.
