We’ve been rocking Ready To Go, the new single from our Finnish faves Jay Lamar & Jesse Oliver, round these parts for a few weeks now, just waiting for the time when we could post a track or two. We’ll now the single is out that time has come as the two original tunes and the storming reMix from Belgian Disco tinged House master A.N.D.Y. and fellow Belgian DJ Vicente are available for your listening pleasure.
And a pleasure it is too. Ready To Go is as massive a tune as we’d expect from these two. Mixing up a little Disco, a little big room House and a little stomping Electro, Lamar & Oliver deliver a total crowd-pleaser with anthemic robo vocals. There’s just no way this tune wouldn’t whip up a dancefloor into a frenzy. The B-side, Sins & Secrets, is a more dreamy affair. Adding a piano led Tropical vibe and a touch of Indie to their already bursting mix Lamar & Oliver show a different side to their work. Sins & Secrets’ Indie structure make it the perfect compliment to the banging lead track. After the reMix brings the buzzsaw riffs and pounding drums for the tracks intro, A.N.D.Y. & Vicente soon slip into a relentless House groove with a spiky, almost EBM bassline, and a rousing organ lead line. Popping electro hooks, just the right amount of vocals, nicely twisted, and bringing those grinding synths back in for the build, all perfectly executed in this tune. And when things kick back in after the breakdown, it’s got such punch. that organ gives the track a Halloween feel too, maybe, just sayin’.

Jay Lamar & Jesse Oliver’s Ready to Go was out this week on La Valigetta.
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.
