Ace Attack’s ‘Take A Break’

ace-attack

Funketeer Ace Attack has let loose a brand new summery jump up tune. Only a month or so after the release of his reMix collection this French producer is already working and new ways to keep us dancing.

Twisting Mood Funk basslines are the order of the day with Take A Break, the track runs along on them. Herbie Hancock style Jazz Funk synth bass keeps the energy of this track right up, it’s so twisted, so funky that you can’t help but move to it. Add to that a Disco beat, warm synth pads and some wicked, light fingers, lead and solo playing and you’ve got a Disco tune full of summer Funk that’ll worm it’s way into your brain. And stay there. the only downside is a terrible vocal sample (or maybe it’s real vocals? *shudder*), but you can ignore them and just get down to the track itself.

Ace Attack’s ‘reMixes’ EP

Ace Attack

We haven’t really heard from French producer Ace Attack in quite a while, but he’s just released a new EP, for free no less. And it just goes to prove that the man hasn’t been sitting on his laurels, he’s obviously been busy down in the studio and now it;s time for him to, as it says on the tin, come out of hiding.

The EP is basically a collection of reMixes, two of the tracks are billed as originals, but are based so strongly on existing tracks they might as well be reMixes too, in fact the EP is called ‘Ace Attack reMixes’. The lead track on the EP is ‘Out Of Hiding’, which is based on, or a reMix of, Pamela Stanley’s Italo/Hi-NRG classic ‘Coming Out Of Hiding’ from 1983. Ace Attack brings the track right up to date but keeps the retro flavour of the track. It’s a really good choice of vocal to use, realty period sounding and Ace Attacks works them for every drop of Italo goodness. While not actually doing much to the original track, Ace Attack certainly make it more friendly to contemporary dancefloors. The rest of the EP continues updating classic tracks, sometimes subtly in the case of ‘Running Back to You’, sometimes getting a complete makeover in the case of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’. Renaming reMixes as original tracks is a bit weird, but you can’t fault the music, top quality retro Electro & Disco. Pick up the EP and find out.

Ace Attack is a French producer who had just dropped his first EP of Retro inspired Electro tunes.

Drawing from a range of modern Electro influences Ace Attack’s music spans everything from soaring Dreamwave solos to gritty Danger style bit-crushed riffs. But it’s the melodies and musicianship here that really impress, these are real instrumental pieces, the kind produced by Jarre, Hammer or Hancock. Imagine Jarre laying down an awesome melodic peice over Kavinsky dropping some rough Electro, that’s kinda’ close. Check it out:
