There are very few people we love more than the DFA crew, and especially Nancy Whang. Her vocals are the companion to so many timeless tracks—not to mention she’s fun, spunky awesome (and any other adjectives I can throw out there). Needless to say a video accompaniment to Shit Robot’s “Do That Dance” is the perfect thing to get Friday feeling right and to get us excited for Shit Robot’s upcoming sophomore LP due out March 18th. The track is classic DFA disco, brimming with fractured funk and groove galore, and the video features Whang busting a move over footage of old soccer games. What’s not to like?
Andy Butler is at it again and gearing up for a new Hercules & Love Affair Release. Lead single “Do You Feel The Same?” straddles the line between 303-driven techno and DFA style disco. It follows in the progression of Hercules releases, and ultimately sounds like his most electronic based music to date. That’s not to say it’s not brimming with funk and groove though because it capitalizes on both to make for a super fun track. Check it out below and get ready for the full length, due out in April.
KEATS//COLLECTIVE is a Denver-based artist collective who offers sound portfolios and remixes each Wednesday. Here they bring together Long Island’s liquefied SAINT PEPSI and Japanese future funk artist マクロスMACROSS 82-99 for a remix Saint Pepsi’s “Pineapple Juniors.” The track speeds up classic disco sounds to a house music pace and adds powerful bass hits underneath to create funk so fresh you can’t help but move. Soulful vocals are drizzled lightly on top , マクロスMACROSS 82-99′s electro-crescendos fit comfortably in his catalog of high-pitched disco tracks with various pop nuances. The combined sound of these two producers makes for one radiant dance jam that is sadly cut short by a fade-out .
Home Breakin’ Records just released the new single by Romanian siblings, The Gemini Bros. “Jeraldine Affaire” is a great blend of dance music through the decades, featuring equal input from soul, funk, disco and deep house to make an undeniably groovy slice of cosmic disco. Canadian producer, Neighbour’s take on the track cools it down for a moment to a dreamy house groove with jazzy chords and warm strings until it kick back in with a disco groove with a funky bassline that is easily danceable and mellow at the same time. Both tracks are super enjoyable and provide a great vibe for whatever mood you’re in.
Man & Woman is a new DC-based duo consisting of producers Eau Claire and DJ Provoke. Their first single, “Do It Right,” was premiered last week on Wallflower Food, and it’s a nice cut of deep disco with a mellow tropical vibe. The focus is based around a nu disco bass line which is accented with synth flourishes and a modest but effective vocal same. Check it below:
