Welcome back you disco dancin’ souls! Thanks for tuning in once again to another edition of That New Nu. With things starting to turn summery here in the northern hemisphere again, we can really expect things to start heating up in the scene shortly. This week will just be an appetizer. So forks first let’s dive into some tasty nu disco jams! • A Finnish tag team here we’ve got Disco Despair, who’s flown under the radar curating the heater playlists for Youth Control for a while now, just hit us with his latest ‘I’m No Good’. It’s funky and well structured and has got to be a pile of fun to hear live. Plus we’ve got a bonus remix from fellow Finn Roisto who does his usual, which is to say drops some party disco on top for your listening enjoyment. Add a just a touch of sax and this track remember’s it’s summer roots. • SNBRN’s future summer classic ‘Rain Drops’ will undoubtedly be on repeat at pool parties all summer long, but Hotel Garuda just seriously prepped it for the deep house dance floor. It’s become understated, deep, bouncy, and still fresh as hell. Add a just a touch of sax and this track remember’s it’s summer roots. • Galantis knows that it’s ‘Peanut Butter Jelly’ time this week. And just like it’s namesake this track will surely be a staple…in the world of disco. Hyped up horn synths with infectious team up for a rib-sticking disco celebration. • Autograf got some skin in the game with a remix of Alesso’s ‘Cool’, which has seen tons of remix love, and it’s great to see him bringing it back into the disco (well, maybe indie dance) fold. In any case, Auto cuts up a huge house line beautifully and almost plays it in piano style, this is one artist who seems to push the boundaries with every new release. • Flight Facilities can be a little to chilled at times for the rundown, but not this week with their shiny new original ‘Down To Earth’. They take on a truly chill house look in this hook with soulful vocals and orchestral, sweeping synth lines. But let’s be honest we’d all pay to see a Flight Facilities deep-house only DJ set. ‘Cream On Chrome’ is here to teach your grandkids about what it means to make great music. • I’m not if Ratatat really should count in a nu disco rundown, but I’m going to do it anyways because it’s so damned funky! Their shiny new original is aptly named ‘Cream On Chrome’ and is here to teach your grandkids about what it means to make great music. Midi guitars come in a-blazing in classic Ratatat style, but progressive backing and melt-away audio effects will keep you on the edge of your seat. Welcome to the future of Ratatat. Did I miss something crucial this week? Could yo not stop dancing through that entire Garuda rerub? Whatever it was come say what’s up on SoundCloud and let me know. Thanks for tuning in and Happy Friday!
