[Audio] Irish Steph’s ‘Breathe’ (+ Ali Jamieson and Louis La Roché reMixes)


Irish Steph

Breathe is the forthcoming new single from seriously underrated Dubliner Irish Steph. Out at the end of the month on La Valigetta, the single is already getting spun by the likes of Madeon, Philippe Zdar (Cassius), Aeroplane, Justin Faust and Shinichi Osawa and deservedly so. When the release drops you can expect a bursting-at-the-seams reMix package from the likes of Blatta & Inesh, Joao Ceser, Stephane Deschezaux Ali Jamieson and Louis La Roché. Check it out.

Breathe bursts out your speakers with a siren drone before easing in a heartfelt vocal and a heavy bass groove.Walking the line between Nu-Disco and harder Dance sounds, Irish Steph delivers something that’s both a powerful dancefloor tune and something a little more cerebral. Robo vocals and layers of buzzing synths combine to create something strangely haunting amongst the pounding drums. Ali Jamieson takes the tracks Funk one step further, turning in a buoyant slab of Turbofunk, heavy on the vintage synth sounds and cosmic sweeps, revealing a gentler side to the original’s vocals. For the full-on Disco version of the track we turn to Louis La Roché who incorporates a bouncy bassline, the kind that can’t help but put a smile on your face, and uplifting keys in a twisting, galactic, mirror ball oddessy that, thanks to the vocals, doesn’t quite shake the original’s unsettling element. The whole package is pretty top quality. Mind-Disco.

[Download] Birdee reMixes Reset!’s ‘Shake The Party’



It’s looks like it’s Reset! part time over at Mofo Hi-Fi/Heavy Disco HQ these days. First we were treated to DiscoSocks’ rendition of Reset!’s I Need You and now we’ve got London producer Birdee’s storming version of the Erick Sermon (That’s E-Double, from EPMD, to the grown-ups) featuring Shake The Party. This one deserves to be played loud.

What Birdee has done here, is looked at Gesaffelstein’s recent EBM-in-disguise singles and gone ‘yeah, they sound good, but they’re not much fun are they?’ and imagined a world where Gesaffelstein liked to get down on the dancefloor with the ladies, rather than marching across a post-apocalyptic wasteland with robots of a dubious political persuasion. OK, so Birdee might not have done that, but the end result is the same. Tough arpeggios, noisy synths and distorted blips and zaps all present and correct. But wait, there’s more, Birdee also brings a truck load of funk to the table making those machine riffs submit to the power of the groove. This is powerhouse Disco at it’s most compelling.

[Audio] DiscoSocks reMixes Reset!’s ‘I Need You’



Reset!’s I Need You was one of the big songs of the summer, big grinding Electro-House with a Disco soul. It occasionally veered a little too far of the Turbofunk path into American ‘EDM’ territory, but on the whole was a slamming tune. So, a few months later here’s London bass jockey DiscoSocks to smooth over the tracks rough edges and reel it back into a dancefloor fun arena. It’s part of the official reMix package that was released this weekend. Get on-board.

DiscoSocks morphs the aggressive growl of the original into a Chromeo-esque slice of slick Disco. Leaning heavily, of course, of the Sock’s awesome bass playing, the track revels in the irresistible bassline running throughout. Layering that with slick Disco licks and heavyweight vintage synths DiscoSocks makes everything, from the hook to the vocals, just that little bit groovier. We just can’t imagine a situation that would prevent you for moving to this one, not even if your dead. If you can’t dance to this one then it may be time to reassess what you’re doing with your life. DiscoSocks really is rising to the top of the London Disco scene.

[Audio] Data/Debt’s ‘Dead Pixel’



We’ve been eager to write about this one for a couple of weeks. It’s the next release on London’s Heavy Disco label and it comes from San Francisco based producer Data/Debt (who you may remember mixing up Ali Jamieson’s Four Thirty) in collaboration with Nu-Disco producer Allen Walker on Bass. Dead Pixel is his début release, check it out.

Dead Pixel is a rolling party starter who’s gruff groove is disguised amidst a cheeky line in samples. There’s just no way you can stop your head nodding to this one. You can’t stop smiling either. Thick with broken snatches of vintage Disco records and driving bass, Dead Pixel delivers a nice winter Disco vibe, this one isn’t for poolsides, this is for sweaty backroom clubs and everlasting Funk.

Data/Debt’s Dead Pixel is released 11th November.

[Audio] Speaker Bomb’s ‘B.A.B.Y.’/’Superdisco’


Speaker Bomb

Speaker Bomb are a Nu-Disco trio from Bologna and San Francisco who are about to release a summery double A-side single on Heavy Disco. Two tracks of no complications, no delusions of greatness, bottom line party tunes, B.A.B.Y. and Superdisco. You can tell from the names what the deal is, can’t you? Switch of your brain and put your shades on, we’re going in.

B.A.B.Y. is a French House influenced Disco tune, revolving around a handful of totally infectious Disco samples. If you;re looking for anything innovative or intelligent, you’ve come to the wrong place, this is pretty lowest common denominator Disco, but executed with flair and one that’s pretty much guaranteed to keep the floor moving. Similar vibes are found on it’s AA-side. Superdisco, once again, is all about the filtered loops and tight beats. What for the build and get this on when your relaxing by the pool, if you’re lucky enough to have a pool, which we’re not. Oh well.

♫ Speaker Bomb – B.A.B.Y.

♫ Speaker Bomb – Superdisco

Speaker Bomb’s B.A.B.Y./Superdisco is released 19th August.

[MP3] Blende & Surrender!

Blende & Surrender!

London purveyors of ballsy, rough, Disco sounds La Bombe have come up with the genius idea of releasing a collaborative EP featuring to of their artists who really took 2012 for and make it their own. UK producer Blende and Turkish wunderkind Surrender! have joined forces to release an EP that is showing signs of being everything a team-up of these proportions promises.

Two tracks from the February released Synapse EP have been aired so far. Circus, a crazy collision between early German Techno and rocking French Electro that soon launches into a full-on baroque Disco stomper that put’s the recent Justice album to shame. The EP’s title track, Synapse kicks straight off with an insanely catchy riff and soon descend into pure, unbridled, French Electro joy. The epitome of everything we love about French Electro, Synapse couple be held up as a masterclass in doing it properly. It makes you sad for everyone else.

Blende & Surrender! – Circus

♫ Blende & Surrender! – Synapse

Blende & Surrender!’s Synapse EP is released 18th February

[MP3] Ali Jamieson’s ‘Four Thirty’ EP

ali jaimeson

So tracks just take their time. We first featured London producer Ali Jamieson’s Four Thirty  in it’s demo form back in 2011. Ali’s been pretty busy since then working begin the scenes for MofoHiFI and their sister label Heavy Disco and their amazing roster of artists, but it’s now his time to step into the limelight as Four Thirty finally gets a full release.

Four Thirty, as we mentioned last time it featured on these pages, is a wicked mixture of Synth Funk vibes and dirty Nu-Disco. A chugging bassline and some gritty synths give the track enough balls to earn the Heavy Disco title, but this is nicely off-set by some dreamy vintage synth stabs and twisting Funk melodies. reMixes on the single come from Holmes Price, Alizzz and these two gems from 5eya and Data/Debt. 5eya takes the track down smooth new roads with his laid back deep Disco mix. Dropping a hazy vocal sample into the ix adds a special touch to his reMix, sitting pretty amongst the waves of chilled sounds. The Robo Funk is turned up to eleven on Data/Debt version of the track. With a slight Italo flavour, Data/Debt unleashes some euphoric House hooks that roll atop a pounding futuristic groove. Awesome stuff. Did we mention that the whole single is free?
