Exclusive: French Horn Rebellion launches new label, Toucan Sounds, with a nu-disco burner from LEFTI and Spencer LudwigDSC00514 2 Min E1548779795292

French Horn Rebellion debuts their new label, Toucan Sounds, with an electro-funk heater from LEFTI, “Every Time,” featuring Spencer Ludwig. This trumpet-doused funk is the lead single off LEFTI’s DISCOTECA EP, set to be released off the newly minted imprint.

Looking to possess an artful fusion of live and electronic production touching on disco and house music, the Brooklyn-based Alex Suarez richly layers the productions on the EP for some full-bodied funk. “Every Time” begins with a groovy production over filtered vocal harmonies increasing in energy. Ludwig’s verse begins atop a bed of lush, pulsating synths and drives into an anticipation build that introduces the horns that fall into funky trumpet bliss in conjunction with smooth bass and disco-style vocals.

If “Every Time” is the imprint’s introduction to 2019, nu disco from Toucan Sounds will add a jolt of energy to the Brooklyn scene.

Eric Sharp has dropped off a certified smooth progressive house cut, though, its a track fans might already be somewhat familiar with. Stepping up to his own previously released “Too Much,” originally recorded alongside Brooklyn-based electronic duo French Horn Rebellion, Sharp remixes his own track into a certified smooth disco-inspired house cut, driven by infectious floor-ready piano chords. Sharp remarks on his new remix,

“In remixing ‘Too Much’ for the dance floor I went with a more minimal approach than the original, stripping it back into the most essential and driving elements. This opened up space for the basslines to shine for maximum impact in a club environment. I wrote new percussion to make it hit harder and restructured the track with DJing in mind, placing the vocals in the breaks. The piano drop was something I was hearing in my head so that was just about finding the right chords to compliment the bassline.”

Sharp’s revisiting of his joint effort with French Horn Rebellion comes as part of a new remix EP, with incoming new takes on last year’s Eric Sharp and Friends EP. The new, solo rendition of “Too Much” blends funky disco and house tropes into a repeat-worthy second take, extending the track’s shelf life with an aced remix.

French Horn Rebellion has a kind of finesse that many artists search their whole careers to obtain.

With brothers Robert, former member of the Chicago Civic Orchestra, and David Perlick-Molinari, a former producer with MGMT, working together, they have the ability to use their affinity for and experience across genres to make music that is authentic, no matter the sound.

While French Horn Rebellion’s music is rooted in electronica, we know them for bubbly and upbeat nu disco and summery house. But in their latest, “Soy Bonita,” the Brooklyn-based duo has stepped in a new direction of dancehall-inspired music. Featuring Jamaican reggae rap artist Marcy Chin, the track is immediately irresistible, posing deep synths against Chin’s witty vocal. The symbiosis between producers and vocalists are immediate, making “Soy Bonita” something to talk about.

Exclusive: French Horn Rebellion & Jody Watley – Just Werrrk

Continuing to bring one disco heater after another, Brooklyn brothers French Horn Rebellion teamed up with Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Jody Watley for the compellingly funky “Just Werrrk.”

The groovy collaboration brilliantly meshes the artists’ two styles for a dance floor-primed tune. Watley’s lively vocals blend seamlessly with swanky instrumentation and production from French Horn Rebellion. The upbeat vibe of “Just Werrrk” makes for a shining addition to both artists’ discographies.

The track has been a long time coming, too, the brothers reveal.

“This track has been our secret weapon on the dance floor since we made its first version back in 2014,” says French Horn Rebellion’s Robert Perlick-Molinari. “In our French Horn Rebellion DJ Sets, it always brings the house down. We often get the crowd to pretend they are lifting weights when the drop hits, ‘Just Werrrk.’ After one such performance this past winter, we sat down together, and said ‘the time has come for the world to hear this hot disco fire.’ We asked Jody if she thought it was time, and she said ‘YES.’”
