Today Discotexas release the long awaited début ep from Andy Faisca A.K.A. one half of Belgian analog Disco kings, Mustang A.K.A. A.N.D.Y.. Teaming up with fellow Belgian DJ Vicente (he of the BelgoDisco mixtapes) the duo have dropped the ‘Traffic’ EP containing two storming original tracks and work by a couple of our favourite producers.
‘Traffic’, the lead track is 21st Century Moroder gold. A.N.D.Y. and Vincente’s futuristic take on an Italo and Disco deathmatch, with Italo coming out slightly on top, the track powers long riding the wave of a smooth arpeggiated bassline. This is Sc-Fi Disco at it’s best full of pinpoint laser synths and cosmic sweeps, it;s a track that gently builds and builds upon itself until the finale is total Buck Rodgers bliss. ‘El Barrio’ provides the B-Side, and strangely the source for the reMixes. It’s a steady groover, more the deep analog Disco we’d expect from the ex-Mustang man. Dropping a kinda’ Tropical lead line over the top sets the tone but soon gives was to something a lot more Jarre-esque. ‘El Barrio’ is an emotional robot of a track, that rocks the beach part vibe, it just happens to be a beach on Titan. Our favourite Finnish production team, and rapidly becoming regulars on electronic rumors, Jay Lamar & Jesse Oliver take up the reMix challenge turning ‘El Barrio’ into a slick Nu-Disco floorfiller. Keeping a bit of the Tropical vibe, but then going heavy on the synth bass and wicked Disco licks, give the track a whole new tone, and when the massive synth stab ‘chorus’ drops the floor will go crazy. Bringing up the rear is The Supermen Lovers, who drops pretty standard The Supermen Lovers fare, hypnotic French Disco, you know what you’re getting. We always knew A.N.D.Y.’s début would be pretty stunning, and he’s lived up to every expectation.
