You may remember us mentioning the (then) forthcoming EP from French Turbofunk master Daze, titled at the time Solar. Well, the EP is finally out this week, having developed some periods and S.OL.A.R. now stands for Sound Of Love Around Radios and the EP holds five tracks of top quality dirty synth Funk and floor shaking French Disco grooves.
S.O.L.A.R., the lead track, is a massive vocoder Funk monster. Setting the tone for the robotic dream vocals and the buzzing retro synths that permeate the whole EP. S.O.L.A.R. mixes up a little twisted 70s Funk, rolling Disco and French-Touch into a impressive and full tune that immediately grabs hold of you and coerces you to, at the very least, get a good head nod going. Something On Your Mind continues the journey into soulful vocoding and vintage electronic grooves. A little more R&B in it’s approach, Something On Your Mind takes that heartfelt swing and gives it a retro-future makeover. Like a funky robot’s lament. After the baroque French Electro of Childhood Dreams comes Daze’s the previous single, Thinking About You. This track is the epicentre of the EP, funky as hell and built upon jazzy synths, a Disco beat and soaring vocoded vocals, it delivers everything you want from Robo Disco in a surprisingly poppy package. The S.O.L.A.R. EP is definitely recommended if you’re looking for a collection of smooth synthetic soulful sounds.
