One of our favourite Canadian producers Cyclist had once again teamed up with fellow Canadian Maiko Watson to deliver one of the most pleasing tunes of the summer so-far. Last time these two teamed up it was for Cyclist’s awesome track Shine, this time they take it to the next level with some of the most blissful vibes you’ll hear this year.
Injecting both Cyclist’s jazzy groove and Maiko’s smokey R&B vocals into a solid Nu-House tune has produced a real ‘musicians’ Disco tune. Titled Sunrise, the track is so dripping with sunkissed nostalgia and soul that it’s hard not to get sucked into it’s smooth depth. With a slight Motown vibe hidden amongst it’s Cosmic synth Disco and poolside House façade; Sunrise had a vibe that truly lives up to it’s name. Optimistic and passionate, Mark and Maiko have served up a tune that never gets old (really! we’ve had it on repeat for ages!), and a timeless track for discerning dancefloors.
Our friend Mr. Penner is back. Next week Cyclist releases his new single on Jerry Bouthier’s Continental Records, and it’s a stormer. Featuring the vocal stylings of fellow Canadian Maiko Watson, it’s full-on vintage DiscoPop gold that comes equipped with reMixes from Rogue Vogue, Lou Teti & Drop Out Orchestra.
That track’s called Shine, and it does what it says on the tin. Bringing tons of Nu-Disco and even more Boogie to the table, Cyclist heaps on squelchy Moog-esque basses and a wired Disco beat to create a rock solid foundation of Electro-Funk for Maiko’s massive, soulful vocals. This one could easily be slotted into most kinds of Disco or House sets and would undisputable keep the dancefloor moving. One of our favourite Chicago House acts, Rogue Vogue, deliver a slick warehouse jam, deep and funky with a glamorous twist. Pure vintage House vibes. The whole package is pretty sweet and definitely worth checking out when it drops next week.
