[Audio] Justin Faust’s ‘Casino Royale’

 

Justin Faust

German Nu-Disco beard master Justin Faust released one of our favorite records of last year. His album, Spellbound, was an unbeatable summer soundtrack. Prior to the full length release Faust dropped an EP via New York label Nurvous in 2013 (and it’s companion reMix EP); Disco Cuts. Now the man returns to Nurvous for the follow up; the sequentially titled Disco Cuts II. Here’s the EP’s lead track, Casino Royale.

Casino Royale takes a slightly different tack from the more Synth Disco driven cuts on his album. This, along with it;s release-mates, are sample driven beach floorfillers (if beaches had floors that is, which they don’t, but sandfillers sounds painful). This is a pure holiday jam that injects an evocative 60s vibe into Faust’s Disco groove. Conjuring the same sort of vibes as it’s title suggests, this one is all mini-skirts and Monte Carlo.

[Audio] Justin Faust’s ‘Spellbound’

 

justin-faust

The bearded wizard of Nu-Disco Justin Faust is testing the release of his début full length record with a sneaky peek at the title track. The album is called Spellbound and is due out this month via the awesome Discotexas. Followers of Faust will agree that this album is very long and eagerly awaited and if this lead track is anything to go by, it’ll be worth the wait. This bodes very well.

There’s just something about the bassline to Spellbound. We can’t put our finger on it, but it worms it’s way into your brain and stays there. It’s a rich and hypnotic track that shows off Faust’s funk in full swing. A chugging, unrelenting groove rolls over effervescent purcussion, synths firing on all cylinders and providing a forward imperative for layers of bright shiny keys to flow over. The album can’t come soon enough.

Justin Faust’s Spellbound is released 19th September.

[Audio] Justin Faust reMixes Glen Check’s ‘Pacific’

 

Glen Check

Glen Check are a South Korean duo who have had a pretty successful career in that particularly East-Asian brand of sweet Indie-Electro-y Nu-Disco that that part of the world does so well. The guys have just released the second collection of reMixes of tracks from their Youth! album, this time focusing on the tracks Pacific; and on that release is this joyous four minutes from German synth-Disco master, Mr. Justin Faust.

OK, first up, ignore the rest of the track for a second, just listen to that bassline. Pure boogie. As soon as that punchy, retro synth bass kicked in Faust has us hook, line and sinker; conjuring the best mid-80s dancefloor hits to mind. Add to this some lush keys, Glen Check’s buoyant, optimistic vocals and cool summer-pop swing; and you’re left with a track that  just puts a smile of your face, whatever the weather. Stick around for a mind-warping solo at the track’s finale. Groove on!

[Audio] Justin Faust’s ‘Elevator’

 

justin-faust

German Disco don Justin Faust is taking a break from his usual Discotexas releases to deliver something new on acclaimed New York dance label Nervous Records. This week he released a three track EP titled Disco Cuts. You can check out the first of the three cuts right here with the big, sweeping, Elevator. Elevator music this ain’t.

Also heard on this week’s new Goldroom mixtape, Elevator is a filtered Disco juggernaut. Guaranteed to please both the Nu-Disco crowd and the French Touch lot, this tune brings to the table everything you need for a dancefloor destroyer. Hypnotic Disco hooks, pumping beats, a cheeky bassline, and a ton of filtering, bringing the track it’s highs and lows. We can definitely see this being a go-to track in a lot of DJ’s crates for some time.

[Audio] Justin Faust’s ‘Space Rhumba’

 

Justin Faust

It’s been awhile since we’d had a new release from German Nu-Discomeister Justin Faust, but this week Discotexas release the man’s new single, Space Rhumba. Prepare for some cosmic Latin rhythms backed by reMixes from Discotexas’ own Xinobi and Swiss producer Mercury.

This one’s a straight-up party starter. The combination of Latin purcussion and sweeping galactic Disco synths makes for a unique, and hard to ignore, sound. It’s got a vibe unlike anything you would have heard recently, like Miami meets Paris with a head nodding bassline and a rhumba fuelled piano lead. Xinobi’s take on the track into a sweet piano led groover loaded with wicked Disco licks and a clicky Electro beat. Definitely one for the crate.

[MP3] Justin Faust reMixes Night Drive’s ‘Sea Of Light’

 

Night Drive

We’ve written about Night Drive, the Austin Indie-Electro outfit with the terrible name a few times now, which is more than enough. So let’s not worry about them right now and wrap your ears around this luscious reMix of their Sea Of Light single by German Nu-Disco producer Justin Faust.

Faust really delivers the goods with his reMix, and by goods we mean a thick sounding, laid back, summer groove rolling in it’s own synth bass until it’s filthy with funk. The original’s sound, if anything, superfluous here as Faust makes the song his own. The pulsating poolside charm of the track is easily enough to stand on it’s own merit. Although we though the original of Sea Of Light was alright, we’d love to clock a Dub version of this.

Night Drive Sea Of Light is out now.

[MP3] Justin Faust reMixes Hey Champ!

 

heychamp2013_thumb

We’re still rocking to Chicago ElectroPoppers Hey Champ new, and free, single, Comet. The BeuKes featuring tune is one of our favourite tracks of the year so far, well on it;s way to becoming an Indie-Electro anthem. Well, here’s the icing on the cake reining heavyweight champion of German Disco Justin Faust has worked his magic on the track, and everything’s gone dreamy.

Faust’s smooth synthetic Disco sounds are the prefect accompaniment for Hey Champ’s Comet. Loaded with Dreamwave sounds and an infectious groove. Playing off a simple, hypnotic, bassline against starlight, sparking lead lines, Faust creates a fittingly spacey mood that flows as effortlessly as the vocals.You could just listen to this mix and forget the rest of the world even exists.

[MP3] Justin Faust’s ‘La Fête’

justin_faust

It feels like ages since we’ve had a new original tune from German Disco king Justin Faust, the man has been busy producing some of the best reMixes of the past year, but we do love it when an original comes along. Apparently this is a tune that Mr. Faust has been playing out for a while, so it’s a tried and tested track that JF and Discotexas are giving us for free.

If you’re looking for a big Disco part tune, then look no further. La Fête revolves around sumptuous horns and a swirling vocals hook for a beach party groove with an otherworldly twist provided by some Cosmic keys. The lead riff has got an almost arabesque feel to it too, again adding to the magical vibe. Underneath it all though, is just a full-on party starter.

Justin Faust reMixes French Horn Rebellion Vs. Database

French Horn Rebellion vs. Database

It’s been about two and a half years since New York duo French Horn Rebellion teamed up with Brazilian double act Database. That first meeting of minds produced the amazing Beaches & Friends and while both acts have been reasonably quite in the past few months is seems their time has been well spent getting the band back together.

This new collaboration has resulted in Poster Girl, which also features a sultry vocal cameo from music-blogger-about-town Nancy Lu, comes complete with a reMix from Germany’s finest, Justin Faust. Faust keeps the vocal intact, which is a good call as the track is a totally catchy, fun hit in the making, and drops them over a blissed out Disco tune that revolves around an infectious hook. This track is pure good times, to be enjoyed in the sun with friends.

French Horn Rebellion Vs. Database – Poster Girl (Justin Faust reMix)

French Horn Rebellion Vs. Database’s Poster Girl is released soon and also features both French Horn Rebellion and Database’s versions and an additional reMix from Peter Wade.
