“Call My Name” is the first track off LBCK’s soon-to-be released album The Goods. If “Call My Name” is any indication of what’s in store for the new album, then disco funk fans should be in for a treat. On “Call My Name”, it’s evident that LBCK appreciate the value of a slow, funky, repetitive groove (Tiger & Woods are another fine example of disco funk duos who have elevated the repetitive groove into an art form). Repetition can be a slippery slope when it comes to production. If it’s done wrong, the listener will label the track as a snooze fest. But when the repetitive groove is done correctly, the listener can be mesmerized. Such is the case on “Call My Name”. It’s a slower brand of soulful disco funk that is a bit of a change from their prior, more upbeat work. But LBCK fans need not worry…it still packs that same funky punch that’ll leave you hypnotized.

Another month, and another fixtape from our friends over at Solé Bicycles. This time they chose French Horn Rebellion to head the tape. They are two brothers that were born in Milwaukee & currently reside in Brooklyn. When Robert told the Chicago Civic Orchestra to F off, he created French Horn Rebellion and decided to lay down his own funky beats instead. It was a great move, as the sounds speak for themselves. This tape is very intricate & lively. There is never a dull moment, nor an instrument forgotten. We can’t wait to see what the boys come up with next. Now speed off into the future and get immersed in the weird, weird world around you.

Every dance track you have read about or will read about this season will claim to be THE Summertime song. But no song has captured the full spirit of Summer the way Body Language’s “Well Absolutely” has done. ”Well Absolutely” has upbeat, sexy + soulful vibrations throughout, enough to crossover into any & every disco, indie, house & electropop Summer playlist.
The full length album by Body Language, entitled “Grammar” will be out in September. In the meantime, “Well Absolutely” is out NOW via Lavish Habits (BUY). And don’t forget to check out the equally vibrant video below!
The longer I’ve known Boys Noize the more I’ve truly began to hone in on exactly how wonderfully awkward the guy really is… from his unibrow to his white pants to his weird instagrams and most recently his totally allovertheplace new EP (BTW you should really click on all those hyperlinks) that goes from Disco to straight up Hardstyle in one fell swoop. Since I pretty much base most of my humor off of awkwardness, obviously das German tekno god ya (that’s Boys Noize, duh) keeps a very close place in my heart.
Speaking of the new EP, although my personal favorite is with the raved-out “Push Em Up” – he’s just dropped the music video for the honorary disco tune of the Go Hard EP, “Starwin”. True to form, Boys Noize keeps it nice and campy with the video, chock full of some pretty tite rollerskate dance routines and (like all moments on the Venice boardwalk) a selection of interesting characters. Keep on keepin it weird, Alex… I and many of us love you for it.
Another Month, another Solé Bicycles fixtape mix, another reason to be excited on this Monday that is currently being ruled by the marine layer floating just over my house. But fear not, rain or shine, Zimmer has concocted the ideal ingredients to put some funk in your phalanges and keep your mood sunny no matter what the weatherman says. The first half of the tape consists of rarities & new jams residing in the disco territory as the tape progresses things and gets a bit more housey. Dig in & vibe on, this one feels very good.
