Eledísco Vol. 4

Published on November 29th, 2011

I’ll be honest: it is damn hard being a disco advocate in this brostep-infused, air-horn laden world. The funk trickles out in bouts and spurts as Korn puts out a new album featuring Excision and Skrillex. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Skrillex (keep reading for proof), but so do the brothers up at Alpha Epsilon Pi every time I walk by their dubstep parties. There’s just not a lot of room for warm silky grooves and crisp sampling… except right here of course. So put aside the filthy tracks and momentarily enjoy the eledísco. 

The new Justice album has had some mixed reviews but I am all for new directions or variety of sound. I like to think the duo knew they would not meet the expectation explosion by fans internationally and smartly veered away. Either way this is a Daze remix of one of the better tracks off of Audio, Video, Disco., Ohio. Great organic bass layering and the vocal samples blow my socks off. Daze only gets better, so check out his soundcloud.

Next we got a new Treasure Fingers original featuring some deep deep sampling from a 1979 track by Captain Sky titled Moon Child and a ridiculous rhythm section. I want that bass sound Ashley Jones! Won’t you take my hand and show me your bass way? Yes he’s a dude named Ashley.

Here’s another slow jam that we all know and love, but quickly you will realize this is something different. I have recently become a big fan of Cherokee after hearing the James Brown swag on Do It Again, and that hip swaying funk is again in motion on this interesting take on a Daft Punk favorite.

And lastly we have a killer collab from Kaskade and Skrillex off of Kaskade’s most recent, Fire and Ice.  I am always surprised at the relative ease in which producers blend their styles into my ears: this song brings it all and it’s a perfect 50/50 of their respective styles. The disco ambiance of this track is only bested by the grimy vocalizations of the now officially dubbed ‘Skrillex bass’ that peeks in at the end of the phrases.

And no one can tell me Skrillex’s new live visualizations are anything less then excellent. Motion captured AVATARS?! Bro please.
