VA - Our Disco Vol. 1
De Pin Up Club - ''New York Groove''
Dansoul - ''Get Down''
Alvinho L. Noise & Nytron - ''Say What''
Zister - ''Rise For Love''
Funk4Mass - ''Shake''
One year after Discobox Records' debut release, the Brazil-based label is proud to present its first compilation: Our Disco Vol. 1. As the name suggests, Our Disco will be a series presenting fresh music from the label’s already established roster in addition to new faces joining the cast.
Opening the pack is De Pin Up Club, an artist known for work that stands as a testament to his musical inspirations, quoting its history, but always adding in new ideas. The feel good disco of "New York Groove" draws from the Paradise Garage … and ever-so-tastefully. Rhythmic guitar and chic vocals combine with old school synths for a spin underneath the disco ball.
Dansoul, the production alter ego of DJ Daniel D, explores nu-disco influenced by '90s house rhythms on "Get Down". He uses Moog synths and a resonating bass line with hip-house vocals for plenty of bounce per ounce.
Next, two very well known names in the Brazilian music scene join the label. Alvinho L. Noise and Nytron drench piano chords in filters on "Say What", a superb work that lays down an infectious bass groove and a punchy beat accentuated by cowbell hits.
Zister is another well known talent from Brazil. With its bass line on overdrive, funky, wailing electric key riff, and hard hitting percussive groove, "Rise For Love" is a dance floor force to be reckoned with.
Rounding the package out is DJ Juliano Maia’s Funk4Mass project. A track characterized by broken beat electro-funk with booty bass, "Shake" is full of fat sounds. The accompanying vocals are primitive and straight to the point.
From disco to house -- blending nu-disco, tech-house, and classic old school electro sounds -- this is what Discobox is all about. Get into the groove!
