New Disco roundup

Been playing plenty of funky chunes from today times that are made to sound like they were made in yesteryear, and oh how I love them in their deceptive practice! The amazing video above comes from DC's Beautiful Swimmers and we heard some tracks from their 12" out on the Future Times imprint. Hit up the label page for lots of good tracks and mixes, including a mix from the Beautiful Swimmers themselves. I'm really feeling these guys groove heavy handed on an 80's kinda protopopfunk thing.

Trus'me has been getting some buzz for a minute but I finally got my hands on their Still No Check ep. Building some tunes out of what sound like lifted disco snippets and fuzzy AM radio sounds these guys also manage to get deep with it with lengthy slow burning house beats. Here's a track from them that fits the earlier description from another release.

Trus'me - At The Disco

Not to mention the slew of Rub-N-Tug edits (and deep side projects), and some In Flagranti new stuff (find the hidden track in this post) there are plenty of these edit meets remix meets original tracks floating around and I'm loving every minute of it. These projects seem to have an appreciation for an old school style of production where every mix and dub was just as important as the original song. Perhaps words like "sampling" and "remix" didn't exist back then it was all just part of how things were done. I can't claim to know exactly how it went down but I'm definitely feeling this hark to disco past with some nice new elements that keep it fresh. Right on dudes.

Speaking of all this new/old/disco/house/dance stuff what better way to dig deep then to see the dudes that may have started it all. Metro Area play Goodlife this Saturday

Emotional disco rants aside, I'll be taking this week off from the show as well. Scheduling hasn't been in my favor lately and I've got to run to New Jersey for a funeral. Not the best of circumstances but a good time to reflect and catch up with family etc. I'll be back on air next week. See yall then!
