A big happy Friday to all you disco-loving souls out there once again! This week was a little light on tracks but that doesn’t mean they don’t make up for it in quality. Also the fact that I’ve had 12+ brand spankin’ new tracks to share with you guys in this niche genre is still pretty astounding to me. But let’s waste no time, the suns out so let’s dive in!

“Disco is a major influence in the world of fashion. It is a dynamic factor in contemporary advertising. It is a message from every consumer that there has been a rediscovery of America’s greatest by-product: fun.” -Neil Bogart

  • Well, if you’ve been following my blog for a while now you probably could’ve guessed who was going to make the headline today. That’s because this remix of ‘Last Chance to Dance’ makes me want to scream from the rooftops, “GOLDROOM IS BACK BABY!” Not that he ever really went anywhere. Really what has me excited here is that we’re seeing a return to his remixing style he used on the infamous “Mother Protect” remix, a track that has held at the top of my favorite tracks for years now (a rare feat). The song is willing, with sultry vocals, but it’s Goldroom’s progressive piano stabs that turn this remix into a dance floor monster.

Remember when Goldroom knocked us all out at NORAD last year? I do.

  • You probably could’ve guessed that this jam would be in the rundown as well, as I can’t seem to resist anything Oliver Nelson puts out (not that I really feel the need to defend that choice). Anyhow, he’s taken a stab at The Wombat’s “Greek Tragedy”. This indie dance anthem is strong on what we all know and love from Oliver with a fresh addition of some sexy sax thrown on the end for good measure.
  • Now let’s take a dip into some darker waters. The usually sunny BeachSeason is here to oblige us this week with his chilling take on HUMANS’ ‘Tell Me’. It’s still structured around a very funk beat and breakdown but with all the accoutrements of an ultra-hip, lo-fi jam. While it may cram several genres into one, it also definitely marks a brave step forward for this emerging artist.
  • Sound Remedy’s ‘We Are The Dream’ was anthemic from the get go, so when I saw that big-room Austrians Urban Contact got their claws into it I knew we had one seriously uplifting track on our hands. UC brings the most vocal-fitting synth progression that I’ve all week to a track that seemed almost untouchable.

  • French disco revolutionary Androma has something he wants to share with you. It just happens to be this weeks most uplifting track. This original is called ‘Mukki’ and comes fully equipped with ethereal, choral vocals and a bouncing synth line that in another context would feel almost over hyped. As always, however, Androma showcases both excellent discretion and balance.
  • We close the week out with a visionary remix of a visionary artist. Marvin Gaye will go down in history as a true father of soul, but that doesn’t mean his tracks can’t play in a modern club. Eau Claire after a big 2014 wants to stay top-of-mind with this remix of the classic ‘How Sweet It Is’, and with remixes at this level of taste she will most definitely succeed.

Well that’s all for me this week, take these tunes forth and spread the good disco word! If there’s anything you think I missed this week, or if you want to have your feed pumped full of disco goodies all week long just hit me up on SoundCloud. Happy Friday!
