[Video] Chic’s ‘I’ll Be There’


Nile Rodgers   CHIC feat Nile Rodgers   I ll Be There with Karlie Kloss   YouTube

Here it is. Long awaited. It’s Nile Rodger’s Chic’s first new song in 23 years; I’ll Be There. A glorious blend of classic Chic and modern touches, celebrating the history of Disco. If fair to say no-one has replaced Nile in the last two decades.

So, here’s the video. It features Karlie Kloss, who is apparently a supermodel or something, and also seems like a bit of an idiot. To be honest we’re a bit disappointed with the clip. We expected more from Nile than ‘rake thin model writhes in her pants’. Oh well, let’s hope there’s a next time to make up for it.

Chic’s I’ll Be There is out today.

Zimmer reworks Chic


Vertical Disco? What the hell is Vertical Disco? Here’s me just coming to terms with Horizontal Disco when one of our favourite Frenchmen Zimmer, Horizontal Disco king, goes all 90° on us and drops a big chunk of upright boogie.

A long time staple of his DJ sets, Zimmer has unleashed his edit of Chic‘s absolute classic Everybody Dance. Sucking the hook right out of the track and emphasising it to it’s fullest effect, Zimmer truly gets the art of the Edit right. Taking the immediately recognisable groove and tweaking it to dancefloor perfection. It’s an Reworking that would have made the disco pioneers of the Edit proud. Now, I think, it’s time we prepare for Diagonal Disco. Y’know, just so we aren’t taken by surprise.

Goin’ Old School: Chic, EMF & Break Machine

Goin’ Old School isn’t a trip down music memory lane, it’s a mugging in the dark alleyway of nostalgia:

The funky as hell Hangin’ (falsely titled Hangin’ Out here) from the legendary Chic in 1982.

In 1989 EMF mashed up Pop, Indie, House, ElectroPop and Hip Hop with their breakthrough Unbelievable. Derry was an inspiration to keyboard players everywhere.

Almost completely copying their first hit Street Dance, Here’s Break Machine’s hilarious follow up, Break Dance Party, from 1984.
