Secret Circuit :: After Life

Aug 14th, 2013 : by :: Tags: ,

I’ve posted about Secret Circuit, aka LA’s Eddie Ruscha Jr, here before. Eddie Ruscha Jr. is in fact the is the son of famous pop artist Edward Ruscha and has been producing music since the early 90s. He’s produced under a bunch of different names and in a handful of genres over the years. As Secret Circuit, he’s recently created his own brand of swaying and warm electronic music. Take a listen as he, in his own words, “holds a séance to summon the spirit of the dance floor…” Enjoy. Words by Peter Fusco

Lindstrøm :: Rà-àkõ-st

Jul 24th, 2013 : by :: Tags: , ,

For the fifth and final installment of ‘if you like “Get Lucky”, check this out’ I present to you a slow burner. I’m posting a slow burning track, not some huge disco club banger, because i want to encourage everyone to go forth. Seek out all the sensory pleasure that disco has to offer on their own. Disco music is diverse and has so much to offer and if disco is ‘coming back’ then you’re going to want to know all the good stuff. This cosmic track from Oslo’s Lindstrom is the theme song to the disco spaceship ride you’re about to take. Enjoy the summer of disco. words by Peter Fusco

Comanche – Silicon Basilica LP

Jul 18th, 2013 : by :: Tags: , , ,

Looks like it’s going to be another scorcher. Thankfully for the disenfranchised listening community, Christmas in July arrives early this year. The Minnesota Claus, Comanche, delivers us a nu-disco laced stocking stuffer dripping with sultry electronic beats and groovy house cuts. Standout tracks “Stride” and “Bella” blend juicy island flavors and crisp retro samplings into a tasty dance-worthy smoothie.

Add last year’s lump of coal to the grill and cue the futurist tropical vibes. Still looking for more summery righteousness to unwrap? Comanche has nicely gifted the naughty fifteen-track LP, Silicon Basilica, free for download here. Merry Christmas.

The Shilohs :: English Roads video

Jul 16th, 2013 : by :: Tags: ,

Sweet new video from The Shilohs with an adorable DIY feel. The video chronicles the journey of an attractive man as he traverses an indeterminate country (perhaps England?) in order to propose to his girlfriend. If you aren’t able to make that backpacking road trip work this summer, live vicariously through this guy. The Shilohs are also on tour, but so far no east coast dates.

Chic :: I Want Your Love (Todd Terje Edit)

Jul 10th, 2013 : by :: Tags: , ,

For part IV of our ‘if you like Get Lucky, check this out’, we present one last masterpiece from Nile Rodgers. This particular version, which for my money is the best version, is an old-school edit done by the Thor of modern disco: Todd Terje. Terje expertly recuts the track to add more suspense, a great climax, and a soft instrumental landing. The writing, instrumentation, and production are of the highest quality the disco era ever gave. It’s hard not to gush over this one, enjoy. words by Peter Fusco
