[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.

German House producer Tensnake’s Love Sublime dropped late last year. The symphonic Disco track was the first taste we had of what to expect from the mans début album, Glow, which is set for a March release. Not content with letting the track lie, some tasty reMixes are on the way, first up being this warehouse monster from one of the UK’s current darlings Duke Dumont.

The Duke keeps things purely House based with this growling rework. That bassline is just dominating; warping it’s way though the track, giving it a dark edge that contrasts nicely with the big vocals and lush piano line. Big beats, deep bass, and a relentless groove, what more do you need form a late night floorfiller? The sparking synths are just the icing on the cake. A storming reMix.

Ahead of the forthcoming release of German House superstar Tensnake’s début album Glow, set for the first quarter of next year. It’s an album that will be boasting a host of collaborators such as Stuart Price, Jamie Lidell, Jeremy Glenn and MNEK alongside frequent vocaliser Fiora and the one and only Mr. Nile Rodgers. It’s Fiora and Rodgers who appear on the albums first single, Love Sublime. Check it out.

Love Sublime is slick as hell. On the surface it appears to be another slice of throwback Disco, but it;s a lot more complex than that. There’s hints of Italo, of 80s Pop and Soul. If anything this feels more Top Of The Pops than 70s Mirrorball. Bouncy synth basslines and multi layered vocals with a breathy delay give it a very mid-80s feel (think: Imagination) with shuffling hi-hats. It’s an excellent choice for a single, but if you can;t wait that long Tensnake has dropped another new tune, which is available as a free download, in the form of the deeper and Housier strobe light epic, No Relief.

[Audio] Sam Smith X Nile Rodgers X Disclosure X Jimmy Napes’ ‘Together’

 

Sam Smith X Nile Rodgers X Disclosure X Jimmy Napes

So, we weren’t going to write about this song. Obviously as soon as a track with a line up like Sam Smith X Nile Rodgers X Disclosure X Jimmy Napes hit the internet every blog and their dog featured it (sometimes whether they liked it or not, it’s all about the traffic y’all!), so there was no point and honestly, could any track, let alone one written in a day, deliver in the promises that line up makes? But here’s the thing, it’s actually a really good tune. It’s definitely a grower, but having had the weekend to let it sink in we are digging it more and more with each listen.

From it’s infectious rubbery bass wobbles to the smooth vocals, there’s just something about this track that gets under your skin. Nile’s Tropical infused guitar playing against the decidedly British take on Funk is a lot more exciting on repeated listens, and the vocal harmonies are pitch perfect. It’s a short tune, and one that doesn’t feel like and of the contributors individually. That must have been one good day in the studio.

The long awaited first (and only?) actual video from Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories has premièred. Accompanying the duo’s latest single Lose Yourself To Dance, featruing Nile Rodgers and Pharell, is probably the only visuals for the album we’ll get.

It’s a pretty standard performance clip, albeit an incredible shiny one, with Nile and Daft Punk playing the Perspex instruments we’ve been teased for so long.
