Clive ‘Crash’ Lewis from electronic rumors presents a look at Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca Present Erodiscotique’s new single. I hate long winded artist names, is there any particular reason they couldn’t just call this project ‘Erodiscotique’ other than peeps ego’s needed stroking? Although Dimitri’s a cool guy and I love Rocca’s work in Chrimea X did they really need to have their names and a project name?
The irritating name aside, ‘I Need A Reason For Living’ is actually an awesome track, it’s got a real solid late 80’s dance sounds. I make no pretence that I don’t adore orchestral hits, ‘cos I do, they’re so rad and this track is full of them in a Bomb The Bass’ ‘Don’t Make Me Wait’ style but with male vocals supplied by Fred Ventura (which I suppose makes it ‘Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca Present Erodiscotique (Feat. Fred Ventura)’ which is just ridiculous). The old school use of sampling and the bouncy FM bassline make me so nostalgic for the late 80’s. Really dig the sound these guys are cooking up on their new EP ‘I Love New York’ from which ‘I Need A Reason For Living’ comes. It’s a but Italo, a bit Hip-House, a bit DancePop, totally cool.
The ‘I Love New York’ EP is out 9th May on Gomma.
