We’ve been eager to write about this one for a couple of weeks. It’s the next release on London’s Heavy Disco label and it comes from San Francisco based producer Data/Debt (who you may remember mixing up Ali Jamieson’s Four Thirty) in collaboration with Nu-Disco producer Allen Walker on Bass. Dead Pixel is his début release, check it out.
Dead Pixel is a rolling party starter who’s gruff groove is disguised amidst a cheeky line in samples. There’s just no way you can stop your head nodding to this one. You can’t stop smiling either. Thick with broken snatches of vintage Disco records and driving bass, Dead Pixel delivers a nice winter Disco vibe, this one isn’t for poolsides, this is for sweaty backroom clubs and everlasting Funk.
The track ‘What You Need’ (or at least the demo version of it) by Raw Man’s project, Priors, has been knocking ‘round the internet for a few months now. Finally it is getting a full reMix package release courtesy of Eye Industries and the smooth Nu-Disco ElectroPop jam some pretty sweet reworkings.
Grum just goes from strength to strength. His reMix here is more chilled than his usual production but it shows a laidback side to his work and is a solid slick of 80’s-esq electronic Funk. Hey Champ!’s take on the tune is more of a cut-up roller-Disco monster. Finally Allen Walker gives us the most straight-up dancefloor version
