[Audio] Hippo Disco’s ‘Falling’ & ‘Answering Machine’

 

hippo-disco

Here’s something to treat your ear to this weekend. Say hello to Hippo Disco. This trio are the newest additions to the electronic rumors family and we realised, shamefully, that we hadn’t properly introduced you. Roodmin, Oochi & Vinski are three Scots living in Tokyo (and Bali) who have slowly but surely been making a name for themselves; most recently having delivered a storming official reMix of Etienne De Cercy’s We, Computers. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for news of their début EP, and in the meantime check out two choice cuts.

Falling is pure Disco bliss. Effortlessly combining wicked Disco licks with dreamy Balearic keys, Falling has got both the groove and a euphoric sweep. There’s just no way you can resist being drawn into it;s six minute dancefloor dream. Hippo Disco have a knack of making ecclectic and left-field Disco that takes influences from anywhere and doesn’t play by the rules. If Answering Machine doesn’t prove that to you nothing will. Plus music nerd points, but minus cool points, if you know where the bassline comes from. Abrasive and funky as hell all at the same time. Hold tight for the EP!

  1. Borrowing the bass line from Sister’s Of Mercy Lucretia My Reflection is a stroke of genius! Both these tracks are fantastic. Do they ever play live?

    • They do. But right now they’re living in East Asia, so if you’re they’re you might be able to catch them. We’ll try an get them over here though.
