Julia Kwamya, aka GERMANS, is a well traveled artist living in Brooklyn, whose moody brand of Disco pairs perfectly with the style & sound of New York in the Fall. It’s a sound that is nostalgic but forward thinking. To help capture this sound on the GERMANS‘ 2013 tracks “Cruel” & “Wonderhow“, former Pains of Being Pure at Heart band member Kurt Feldman was enlisted to produce. The results were heavenly, the melodies were out of this world and admiration had begun to soar. This admiration included Dutch disco producer Auxiliary tha Masterfader (no stranger to us here at GDD). Back in 2013, he linked up with Julia via SoundCloud & asked her if he could remix “Cruel”. She said yes. He remixed the song. And the sounds of Brooklyn & Amsterdam collided. Fast forward to present day and the two are back at it again. With the signature warm synthesizer sound of Auxiliary tha Masterfader coupled with the other-worldly, moody melodies of GERMANS, this remix of “Wonderhow” will no doubt get some major feels going. The sound of Fall is here and it’s FREE to download.
***** Catch GERMANS live alongside French Horn Rebellion & AYER on October 17th at Glasslands Gallery. BUY TICKETS
Auxiliary tha Masterfader’s new remix of “Hey Baby” by That Girl With Dark Eyes is modern Electrofunk with a throwback feel, harking back to the Sheila E./Prince glory days (although the backing male vocal seems more The Revolution than Prince). The remix collaboration of Dutch producer Auxiliary tha Masterfader and San Francisco producer That Girl With Dark Eyes came to fruition after the pair bonded over a love of analog equipment. This intercontinental love fest proves that funk knows no boundaries. Oh hey baby…

Now THIS is the disco I’ve been searching for. Dutch disco producer Auxiliary Tha Masterfader is serving up a brand of disco with some serious attitude. If people would just shut the fuck up already about EDM, Swedish House Mafia & Paris Hilton and focus on something actually worth talking about, you know like good disco music…then maybe guys like Auxiliary tha Masterfader & his fantastic new Electric Disco EP would get the exposure + notoriety they deserve.

The Electric Disco EP (also featuring reworks by the always brilliant Cosmonauts) is available now exclusively on Beatport via On The Fruit Records and will be available everywhere July 2nd.
