New York’s burgeoning producer/DJ duo, Solidisco, brings a modern edge to the classic house sound, riding on the fringes of Studio 54 sensibilities. They consistently bring the funk and keep it groovy – as proven by their latest jam, “Top of the World” featuring Skyy. For this week’s GDD™ Guest Mix, Solidisco offers up a tasteful concoction of only their own originals, bootlegs, remixes, and unreleased tracks.  Download/listen below and mark your calendars for Solidisco‘s remix of Mystery Skulls’ “Ghost,”  featured alongside Fred Falke, Claude VonStroke, and Viceroy for a massive remix package out on February 18th.

If you’re going to put out a proper piece of Disco, make sure you dig deep into your Disco treasure chest to find the right starting point.  New York duo Solidisco knew exactly where to look when producing their latest track “Top of the World”.  They kept things in the New York family and used the classic label Salsoul Records as their starting point.  Salsoul Records are considered by many to be Disco royalty and part of that royal family were NY Funk/Boogie outfit Skyy.  Taking a sample from Skyy’s 1980 track “Here’s to You”, Solidisco create a glamorous + infectious Disco House track that will immediately make anyone slip right into happy dance mode.  Good luck getting this one out of your head.

“Top of the World” is out January 24th via Ultra Records.

Make sure to head over to his Soundcloud to check his whole catalog and get ready for a very eclectic Dirt selection from both of us below. Biggups to Matrixxman for the early 80s Disco jams in his picks. √+ Continue Reading
