Chris Lake flips Chromeo’s ‘Juice’ into a certified club burner

This post was originally published on this site

Chromeo are coming back strong in 2018 with the announcement of their next studio LP, Head Over Heelsand they’ve already teased fans with some fresh funk from the upcoming record with a leggy lead single “Juice.” The new track is quintessential Chromeo, tongue-in-cheek 80’s-inspired synth pop with a tasty singalong hook, though now the duo’s latest is being blessed by UK house legend Chris Lake with a funky remix primed for late night DJ sets.

Swapping out the original mix’s sunkist pop appeal for a more club-leaning vibe, Chris Lake proctors a quirky new remix of “Juice” that complements the original, turning up the four-on-the-floor house thump. Holding onto the original’s vocoded groove, Lake adds some crisp percussive flair and modified guitar chords throughout, making for an aced remix effort that’s likely to lead to an official rework package soon to follow.

MUST LISTEN: Jackmaster’s end of year Mastermix is here

This post was originally published on this site

Just in time for the weekend and the holidays around the corner, Jackmaster has shared his end-of-year Mastermix. Steeped in funk and oozing delectable disco anthems, the dynamic mix is masterfully crafted.

Beginning in 2009, Jackmaster’s Mastermixes have since become an institution in the dance music world. This year, in near two hours, Jackmaster offers but a taste of the underground acid house-tinged basslines, thumping techno, and disco amalgamations the Glasgow act has long exuded.

Between its vociferous disco diva proclamations, perpetually escalating groove, concise cadence, and impassioned funk, the mix is an idiosyncratic testament to an exceptional artist’s growth and felicitously unpredictable tendencies.

The Knocks & Captain Cuts – House Party (Oliver Disco Mixx)

This post was originally published on this site

LA-based duo Oliver have been consistently making a name for themselves with an array of innovative originals and funky remixes. Each release is fresher and more inventive than the last, and their most recent song is a perfect example.

Oliver have released a “disco mixx” of The Knocks and Captain Cuts‘ “House Party,” which came out last month. The original possessed the classic feel-good vibe that is consistent in both The Knocks and Captain Cuts’ music. Though that collaboration was already exceptional, Oliver have stepped in and turned the clock back to the golden age of disco. The “disco mixx” of “House Party” turns the focus on the groovy beat, nearly doubling the length of the track. The original mix’s vocals were primed for a reworking like this, giving Oliver’s rendition a seamless a life all of its own.

Stream The Russ Liquid Test’s genre-bending 7-track ‘World Gone Crazy’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

The Russ Liquid Test‘s future-oriented funk and jazz stylings continues to gain momentum across the live jamtronica scene. The New Orleans-based trio — known for their clean fusion of live instrumentation, psychedelic visuals, and digital sound design — have just capped off a mind-blowing Suwannee Hulaween performance as one of the last stops along their extensive fall tour.

On Nov. 3, The Russ Liquid Test released their seven-track World Gone Crazy EP following a string of teased singles off the record, “Rise,” “World Gone Crazy,” and “Communication Breakdown.” The full EP instrumentation consists of live drums, guitar, brass, keys, and a number of digital softwares, resulting in a hybrid style typically unfrequented in dance music. As such, World Gone Crazy comes as a landmark release for the three-piece band, highlighting their evolution over recent years both on stage and in-studio.

From the funky, free lead-in track, “OMOP,” to the light-hearted vigor of the closing track, “Ruckus,” the entire EP is as fun and dynamic as it is robust, compelling, and vitally urgent. A stand-out track on the EP is “World Gone Crazy,” featuring Chicago-based rapper ProbCause, for how it perfectly encapsulates the overall ethos of the album with undeniable energy and a potent political commentary that is fitting for the current historical moment.

A diverse project comprised of hip-hop, liquid drum and bass, funk, and downtempo, The Russ Liquid Test’s World Gone Crazy EP remains true to the sound they’ve long-cultivated while proving their versatility knows no generic bounds.

Purple Disco Machine presents debut album ‘Soulmatic,’ talks timelessness of disco [Interview + Album Review]

This post was originally published on this site

Disco remains at the forefront of dance music four decades after its genesis, thanks in part to the genius and innovation of Dresden-born artist Purple Disco Machine (PDM). With his debut album Soulmatic, Purple Disco Machine — also known as Tino Piontek — challenges the notion that the aforementioned genre was laid to rest with the bell bottoms and tie dye of yesteryear.

“To me, disco is such a fantastic musical style [in] that it transcends nostalgia. A genre which has musicality and musicianship at its heart should be celebrated, and I think, like many others, that those values are still relevant in today’s electronic scene” 

Soulmatic celebrates disco’s timelessness by blurring boundaries of genre, interpolating classic disco with funk and deep house elements in classic PDM form. This kaleidoscopic aspect of his new project both appeals to dance music fans from all corners, and allows the artist to stay true to his disco roots while keeping a foot in modern times.

On Soulmatic, I tried to make it so that every track touches upon some aspect of the ‘Disco’ genre. From the classic stylings of the 1970’s & 80’s, through Soul, Boogie, Funk into classic House, Filter Disco and Nu Disco,” he explains.

Crucial to the pervasiveness of disco in today’s dance culture is the art of sampling, and Soulmatic‘s first single “Body Funk” is no exception. The track nods to disco legend Sylvester by sampling the drums and bass-line of his hit “Do You Wanna Funk” and combining them with vocal samples from Hot Streak’s “Body Funk” over a classic Moroder-esque Italo-disco beat.

Purple Disco Machine comments,“‘Body Funk’ has been a key track for me since I first recorded it back in early 2017. I play it every set and it is a proper crowd anthem every time. It is crazy to know that it has spread across many different types of DJs, from Black Madonna to Dimitri Vegas who both play it!”

Soulmatic‘s second single “Devil In Me” is equally as unifying as “Body Funk” in that it showcases a melting pot of decades subgenres and tastes. On “Devil In Me,” PDM reimagines his own 2013 hit “My House” with a new vocal top line, and the result is a euphoric nod to dance music of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Not only does “Devil In Me” thrive on a late night Ibiza dance floor, but its sensual vocal courtesy of Joe Killington introduces the track to a wider audience. Killington’s beckoning voice gives a modern flair to the track’s classic disco roots, laying nicely over the original sample from William Bell’s “Private Number.”

The producer shares, “I always felt that the sample in ‘My House’ was so strong [and] that the record could go a lot further than just the club. To do that, it would need a vocal top line. So when it got signed the record company hooked it up. I think it really works, and now I have two different yet complementary records in my catalog.”

“Devil In Me” is representative of Soulmatic at large, using Joe Killington’s intoxicating vocals to transform a classic soul groove into a modern club anthem. Immediately after “Devil In Me,” Soulmatic‘s fifth track “Pray For Me” calls on contemporary R&B talent CeeLo Green to bring PDM’s Daft Punk-esque beat from a soulful loop into a late night heater.

In the form of vocoded vocals and keyboard notes, Daft Punk flavors also pop up on the album’s opener “Music In You” featuring Lorenz Rhode. Additionally,  Piontek pays homage to earlier musical eras on “Memphis Jam” by enlisting New York‘s Golden Age of rap icon Kool Keith for a luxurious overlapping of off kilter rap and soulful grooves.

From whichever decade, genre or taste he draws, Purple Disco Machine succeeds in shifting happiness and togetherness back into dance culture’s center focus with Soulmatic. His debut album upholds the integrity of traditional disco while reaching a mainstream dance audience, cementing it as one of today’s most innovative releases.
