Took an unexpected week off from the world of disco, well disco blogging at least, sorry to leave you hanging! Things have been crazy prepping for our next event with Red Bull Sound Select this week featuring MØ, Inner Oceans, and our girl Povi Tamu, be sure to RSVP if you’re thinking about going. But while I was out some top acts sure weren’t on vacay. We’ve got dance floor heaters from acts seasoned and green alike, so get ready for some sun drenched dancing this weekend in the mile high. Let’s dive in!


 

• Kicking things off this week is a very indie tune from a Portuguese gent who usually sticks to true disco and house, Moullinex. He’s very clearly a founder in this genre and has won hearts the world over, but hearing a bit more a visceral production from him with highly authentic vocals is always welcome progression.

• Meanwhile The Knocks have been knocking out some serious tracks. The two latest are ‘Collect My Love’ and ‘Time’ which flesh out the rest of their ‘So Classic EP’. This 5 track release includes some Classics (get it?) that will surely make up one of my favorite releases of the year. These two new tracks fill out an expansive exploration of the duo’s disco production capabilities. Top that off with soulful guest vocals, and we’ve got a release that I’ll be raving about come list season.

• Another NY based duo, Holy Ghost! hit us with a heater this week, a remix of ‘Two Brothers’ this week. While I’ve usually found their productions to be on the tamed side of things this track drips with the glittery vibes of 1980s New York.

Televisor‘s progression is definitely falling into the ‘meteoric’ category, going from obscurity to the playlist of disco and deep house lovers all over the world is a feat itself. Topping it off with this original production ‘Deya’ is really just the icing on the cake.

Look ma, matching forearm tattoos with our founder!

• The Viceroy X KFlay original ‘Back At the Start’ is surely one of my favorites of the year, so I was thrilled when Niteppl took a hold of it for a remix. They strip it down in the beginning and then take things up in the summery scale with some sexy sax, posing a challenge to the self-proclaimed “King Of Summer”.

• So doing a nu disco remix of Bob Sinclair seems a bit redundant, but Naxsy really hit this one on the head. Honestly I’ll probably be playing this track the most over the weekend. It’s funky and glittery and makes me wish I had some platform shoes.

• Taking things down a notch is Wolf Saga with an enigmatic cover of the famous ‘Kids’ by MGMT. Honestly the original is so played I’m ready to say that I like this one more. Chilling vocals and strong preservation of the original showcase some serious production muscles from Wolf Saga.

• French producer Bolivard usually is pumping out popped out shimmery jams but today he shows off a bit more a deep production side with his remix of ‘Ananas’. Can the pan flute really be manipulated to play in a chilling sonic range? I’m not sure but Bolivard sure is trying here.

• Finally we’ve got a real sleeper of a track, one of those tracks that sneaks onto your SoundCloud feed, doesn’t catch your attention at first but has you dancing at your desk by the end. Kungs and French Accent (I’m in love with that name by the way) have teamed up to remix ‘Bonnie and Clyde’. Guitar strumming shows the first indication of a real heater, but listen to the careful progression of this track and you’ll be out of your seat by the end.

That’s it for this week thanks for tuning in to That New Nu once again. I’ll be back next week more from this wide world of nu disco. If you don’t want to wait, or think I missed something cool, or just want to say “what’s up” find me on SoundCloud. Happy Friday!
