As we mentioned yesterday, the awesome Nude Disco posse is getting ready to unleash their second label compilation; Nude Disco Selections Vol. 2, a must for fans of a modern take on classic Italo Disco. Yesterday we premièred Jules Schimmer’s contribution to the release, today we can unveil another member of electronic rumors’ extended family The Sanfernando Sound’s offering. Here is The World Was Ours.
The Sanfernando Sound makes a break from his enigmatic and edgy recent track record to serve up a shimmering slice of summery Italo gold. The World Was Ours roll along powered by a shockingly infectious bassline that underpins a plethora of lush synths and starlight melodies. Sprinkled over this delicious dancefloor cake are electro toms, a cheeky vocal sample and orchestral hits. Now, if you’re a long time reader of this webzine you will be well aware of our opinion about orchestral hits; they make everything better, the make everything perfect, so The Sanfernando Sound had is at the first hit. Funky fresh fun.

The Reason EP is Housemeister Le Visiteur’s second release for MiGHty mOUse’s label Nightfilm Music. It’s a three track affair from the Scottish Producer/DJ/Blogger and to mark the release Nightfilm are giving one of the tracks away Scot free (don’t judge me!). Will She Be There? enlists the help of Nick Paterson from Edinburgh duo Neon Liston on vocal duties and delivers some nicely un-pretentious and bouncy club sounds.
Based around a springy Disco bassline, Will She Be There? precariously straddles both Disco and House while putting an easy-going, stripped down twist on both. Solid beats and a nostalgic hook are intercut with warm pads and attention holding flourishes while Paterson gives it his smoothest vocal all (including a (presumably unintentional) hilarious “get her booty on the floor tonight” line). If you’re like us then you’ll be saving up this tune, and indeed the whole EP, for the weekend. Fingers crossed for good weather, ‘cos this is sunshine, shades on, music and worth your attention.

Brixton based Nu-Disco collective Nude Disco are gearing up for the release of their second label compilation. Nude Disco Selections Vol. 2 is set for release at the start of next month and will be a tasty snapshot of the kind of Italo Disco goodness we’ve come to expect from the label and it’s Brixton nightclub home. Sitting loud and proud on this storming collection is this little gem from long time friend of electronic rumors Jules Schimmer. It’s his first new tune in quite a while, it’s called Soar, and you can grab your exclusive first listen below.
Mr. Schimmer serves up as emotional and heartfelt electronic as we’ve ever heard with Soar. It’s a fitting title as the tune is warm and uplifting with comfortable retro Italo and House grooves playing out inspiring chord progressions. Like a mid-90s euphoric Trance tune played by a late-80s House producer, Soar is pleasingly nostalgic with a sunrise rush. That lead hook worms it’s way into your brain and stats with you four hours after you’ve finished listening, and with a hook like that, that’s no bad thing. There’s nothing not to like about this one.

Just dropped is the new single from Austin based smooth Disco producer Orthy. Their second release for New York’s Dither Down label. The tune’s called Listen To Her Heart and the release comes backed with a host of reMixes of tracks from Orthy’s E.M.I.L.Y. EP of last year from the likes of AIMES and Cosmic Kids. The track is actually a reworking of the Tom Petty song of the same name; give it a listen.
Listen To Her Heart sees Orthy mix-up laid back breezy Indie-DiscoPop with Chillwave. Experimenting with sounds and effects, Orthy’s sonic landscape is enigmatic and occasionally abrasive, but he wraps everything up in a warm, reverb washed, groove for his smoky vocals to drift over. With a generous helping of nostalgia, Orthy serves up something to drift off to.

Next Jack Swing Pt. 1, Brooklyn groovers French Horn Rebellion’s second album of last year is set for an action packed reMix edition this week. The aptly named Next Jack Swing Pt. 1 (reMixes) boasts a whopping twenty re-takes of the original album’s track from the likes of Chordashian, Blende, Justin Faust, JD Samson, Chrome Canyon, and this monster from the mighty AIMES. AIMES has chosen to take on the HAERTS featuring Swing Into It. Listen up below.
Our boy AIMES dives hard into the deep end of pulsating Italo Disco and retro House grooves. Driven by a slightly acidic, and utterly compelling, old school synth bassline, the track is a loaded love-letter to late 80s extended 12” reMixes. The heavily reverbed vocal snatches that pepper the track lend more authenticity to this period piece, intertwining with the intricate tapestry of Electro hook. Everything comes together in a fun and feel-good arrangement that commands you to dance.

French Horn Rebellion’s Next Jack Swing Pt.1 (reMixes) is released 29th May.

tEPr has long been one of your favourite French producers. His solo work, his reMixes and his production chops as part of Yelle have always hit the right spot for us. The man has a new EP forthcoming, to be released on Yuksek’s Partyfine label, called Hypnotease. A six track affair from which tEPr has unleashed the title track for your listening pleasure.
Hypnotease is certainly hypnotic; it’s no taste though as is really delivers the goods. After years with Yelle it’s probably not right to compare this tune to older tEPr work, this track is more mellow; maybe even more mature. An undulating DiscoPop tune for the first three minutes of it’s life, warm and drifting on hazy synths and Tanguy Destable’s distant vocals, then just past the midway point the track explodes with a huge Inner City-esque Chicago hook and House beat. Intoxicating stuff.

Ben Browning, of Cut Copy fame, has unveiled the second single from his forthcoming début solo album, Turns. The full length record is due out next month and sees Browning drawing from a wide variety of influences to express his personal vision. This new single, Friends Of Mine, follows the well received Make It Easy from earlier this month and loads on some blissed out summery Disco. Check it out.
Ben takes it easy with this one; a carefree nostalgia-fest that is a joy to listen to. Taking those breezy beach Disco sounds so often associated with L.A. and mixing it us with a little Cut Copy-esque Aussie Indie-ElectroPop Friends Of Mine treats the listener to a skippy symphony of warm bass, twinkling leads and Ben’s contented vocal over a steady Disco groove. Like a cool drink on a warm day, this is summer comfort at it’s finest.
