[Download] Disco Socks’ ‘Sock Drawer Secrets #3′

 

discosocks

It’s not often we cover collections of Edits on these pages, the odd one or two here and there when they impress us, but collection we generally pass over (mainly because we get confused as to who gets the article image and purchase links!), but this new three tracker from London’s DiscoSocks definitely bears mentioning. These three new Edits from the man make up his just released Sock Drawer Secrets #3 EP which, as the title would suggest, is his third release of Edit secret weapons. All three are pretty stunning, here are our favourite two for the EP.

The Three Degrees are first up here with their Giorgio Moroder produced hit Giving Up, Giving In. The original’s fuzzy synth grove is easy fuel for an Edit and DiscoSocks runs with it, layering the funk over a solid House beat. Giving the track a whole new lease of life with a decidedly clubby pump and a new arrangement that suddenly delivers a more dancefloor oriented journey, DiscoSocks has managed to retain the original’s slick Saturday night flavour whist dragging it into 2014. Fire Fox’s 1985 single Round Trip Ticket is up next, in it’s inception a slick 80s Soul Pop jam, loaded with synth funk goodness. Ripe for the editing definitely. In this case DiscoSocks knows just what to bring to the fore and what to drop back, driving the B-Boy beat and synth stabs, along with the vocals, to headline the track making it sound as fresh as ever. Want some sure-fire tools for your crate? DiscoSocks has got you covered.

Hold tight! there’s a new tune from London Disco ‘N’ Bass groover DiscoSocks in town. Following his awesome I’ll Be Getting Down/Goldman Sax single the man is indulging his Houseier side with this new track and kicking things into high gear. This one is aimed squarely at the dancefloor,

Gotta Get It Goin is a monster House jam that powers along on the pairing of frantic bass and infections piano hooks. Riding over some pretty complex purcussion the who thing has a forward momentum that drops and builds in just the right places, when it kicks back in it’s pure energy. Expect to be hearing this quite a bit in the clubs over the coming months.

[Audio] DiscoSocks reMixes Reset!’s ‘I Need You’

 

Reset!

Reset!’s I Need You was one of the big songs of the summer, big grinding Electro-House with a Disco soul. It occasionally veered a little too far of the Turbofunk path into American ‘EDM’ territory, but on the whole was a slamming tune. So, a few months later here’s London bass jockey DiscoSocks to smooth over the tracks rough edges and reel it back into a dancefloor fun arena. It’s part of the official reMix package that was released this weekend. Get on-board.

DiscoSocks morphs the aggressive growl of the original into a Chromeo-esque slice of slick Disco. Leaning heavily, of course, of the Sock’s awesome bass playing, the track revels in the irresistible bassline running throughout. Layering that with slick Disco licks and heavyweight vintage synths DiscoSocks makes everything, from the hook to the vocals, just that little bit groovier. We just can’t imagine a situation that would prevent you for moving to this one, not even if your dead. If you can’t dance to this one then it may be time to reassess what you’re doing with your life. DiscoSocks really is rising to the top of the London Disco scene.

DiscoSocks

What’s better than a new single from London bass slapper DiscoSocks? A free single from London bass slapper DiscoSocks, that’s what. Courtesy of the fine folk at Heavy Disco, here’s the double A-side of I’ll Be Getting Down and Goldman Sax, two tracks that are set to put you in a weekend anticipating mood.

If I’ll Be Getting Down was a movie it would be a blockbuster, a summer crowd pleaser, loaded with explosions and effects laden set-pieces, but it’s not, it’s a slammin;’ Disco tune that sees DiscoSocks pulling all the tricks out of his bag and loading them into one track. Frantic purcussion, diva vocal snatches, big stings, vinyl scratches and, of course, DiscoSocks magic fingers blurring over the fretboard of a bass. It’s four minutes of power Disco goodness backed with a more Disco-House leaning affair titled Goldman Sax. Once again riding on DS’ hypnotic bass skills, Goldman Sax injects a rolling sax sample into it’s mesmerizing Disco mix. Go download this now.

[MP3] DiscoSocks’ ‘1000% Horse’

discosocks_thumb

It’s meat you can eat with no fear of surprises. London’s DiscoSocks is proudly proclaiming his latest creation to be 1000% Horse. Which means no beef whatsoever, just pure, tasty, thoroughbred Disco and crazy amounts of DiscoSocks insane slap bass skills.

1000% Horse is the prefect platform for showing off DiscoSocks bass talents, his grimy, funky as hell playing is the heart and soul of this tune. A mid-pace jam that would churn up even the most lifeless of dancefloors. A solid, cowbell infused, groove full of pop, wicked little licks and vocal snatches, gives the track a laid pack party vibe, but really, it’s all about the infectious bass. There’s even a bass solo, which is odd as I thought the whole track was a bass solo!

[MP3] DiscoSocks’ ‘Lifetime’

DiscoSocks

Just in-case your Disco wasn’t rockin’ you hard enough, London’s DiscoSocks is back with another driving slab of groove to keep you moving. Hot on the heels of his last single, Motivation (out now on MofoHiFi’s sister label Heavy Disco) this new tune takes no dancefloor prisoners

This is Lifetime, and this is guaranteed to get you dancing, or your money back. But wait, Heavy Disco are giving this massive tune away for free, it’s a win.win situation. DiscoSock’s bassline work, arguably where the man excels, rolls underneath a duvet of thick stabs and messed up vocal snatches, keeping a loose Funk and the track in check. With a pitch perfect Disco breakdown and build, dancefloor mayhem will ensue.

DiscoSocks’ new single

discosocks

London based bass player turned Disco demon DiscoSocks released a new double A-side single today.

From the moment ‘Voodoo’ kicks in you seriously get hat this guy is experienced with bass. Both the slap playing and the synth lines are amazing. Funky and complex lines intertwine around each other to create a wall of dancefloor destroying synthesizer Disco. the flip side, ‘Boogie Hour’ is just as meticulously crafted and brings more of a banging Electro-House vibe to DiscoSocks Nu-Disco. Both tracks are top quality productions prime to be dropped at peak time.
