[Audio] Slam Dunk’d’s ‘No Price’ featuring Chromeo

 

Slam Dunk'd

There’s been a bit of hype about this forthcoming release from ‘mystery Disco supergroup’ Slam Dunk’d recently. It turns out Slam Dunk’d is Electro legend Arthur Baker with a little help from Al-P from MSTRKRFT; who have enlisted Chromeo’s Dave 1 for vocal duties for this début track No Price. This one’s huge, and will most probably be huge. Check it out.

No Price is classic Disco, so it’s no surprise to find out that it begun life in 1979 and the finished version soon to be released has got the feel of an Edit of a time-honoured track. Arthur Baker has had such a long and prolific career we can’t help but wonder how many other unfinished gems he’s got tucked away. Mixing up a little French Touch into the big strings vintage Disco sound Arthur baker has delivered a tune that pays homage to every generation of Disco. Dave 1’s vocals are the icing on the cake here, giving the track that little added slickness. Expect to be hearting this a lot.

He practically invented Electro Hip-Hop, synthed up New Order and was an influence on almost all forms of Electronic music, and most recently production legend Arthur Baker provided the wonderful dancefloor reMix of current SynthPop bright hopes HURTS’ début track, ‘Wonderful Life’.

Not content with that Baker has taken the core loop of his reMix and expanded it into a full on Electro banger! With only the barest hint of vocals, if ‘Wonderful Life’ was HURTS politely asking you to appreciate stuff, then this time they’re back with AB to convince you with baseball bats! That main riff is a killer!
