Moon Boots · Running From

featuring the truly *smitening* Violetness vocals

This may have just been shy of making our Hottest Nu-Disco in the Funkin World, but it still deserves its own feature. And once again it’s the vocals that steal the show.

Moon Boots sure is making some of the most magical nu-disco on the block, but not even he can outshine Violetness in ‘Running From.’ I know I go on & on & on & on about vocalists in just about every post I make, but tell me she doesn’t just capture you right away. Well, she didn’t capture me right away, but once I felt her tender lips all up in my aura, I was smitten beyond belief ;)

Frank Ocean ·· Channel Orange

Can't get away from 'Lost.' It's always that melody... or is it?

Running through Channel Orange over, I can’t stop going back to ‘Lost.’ I mean, I connect with a few of the others, mostly which were already released, but I just can’t get away from that melody in ‘Lost.’ The lyrics haven’t really hit me like a few of his others have, but I’m never one to look into lyrics all that much – ’cause usually when I do, some ass has to correct me, and usually they’re right. Or it could be the words and I just don’t know it, yet. Wish I could get a little more lost in life, physically – got the mental down.

Hottest Nu-Disco in the Funkin World

featuring the 16 best nu-disco songs for gettin dirty on the dance floor

Last year when I was writing up a piece on the best ghetto funk of 2011, I thought that ghetto funk would be the next biggest thing in emerging music – well, I more hoped it would be. The sub-genre just doesn’t have enough traction with producers and listeners to be the next big thing. However, I do know what’s about to tear up this next progression in music and this time it’s not just wishful thinking.

Our last major mix of music was comprised of the next stylings in R&B. With the likes of Frank Ocean & The Weeknd, soul music is back, but that’s only one half of the equation. Where this hipster R&B is our new music to make love to, nu-disco is where it’s at to get down and dirty on the dance floor […]

The McMash Clan · Sway

featuring Julie London's classic voice

I’ve heard a few dubsteppers use old school singers in their set, but none have pulled it off like The McMash Clan. Taking Julie London’s classic ‘Sway’ and speeding it up just a touch (right on the border of that chipmunk sound), the trio puts a heavy load on London’s classic voice, updating it into this glorified dubstep era.My only issue with the song is that they hit a little too hard after London’s intro. But, from then on this shit sails over her voice in a glitch infested, bass possesed hell of a song.

Frank Ocean · Sweet LIFE

"my tv ain't HD that's too real"

‘Sweet LIFE’ is the latest single off Frank O’s Channel Orange. Co-produced by Pharrell Williams, ‘Sweet LIFE’ changes gears from his last single, ‘Pyramids,’ with a simply smooth, jazzy vibe. Frank lays down those ever lucid lines and reminisces about high society’s secluded life of luxury. Effortlessly lovely as always, Frank.

Wildcat! Wildcat! · The Chief & Mr. Quiche

They've got this indietronica catchy chorus thing locked down

Wildcat! Wildcat! just released their third single “The Chief” and it may just be my favorite one of all. The tune has the usual infectious falsetto chorus, but what sets it apart, as it usually does, is that sexy ass sax. Played by William May, the solo piggybacks off the increasing buildup to the song and puts one sexy ass cherry on top.

Make sure to check out their first single, ‘Mr. Quiche,’ if you enjoy this electro-indie-pop’o’rama. It may not have the sax, but that chorus is just as catchy, if not more. I’m expecting big things from these guys.

Two Inch Punch · Moon Struck

On to that next level lovestep

Half of what a producer does is finding the right vocals. Vocals are what carry a track forward and if they fall short, everything else will crumble. TIP may be onto some next level lovestep, but the vocals he provides are even one step higher.

I first fell for TIP in his remix of Birdy’s ‘People Help The People’ (with a passion) and now I’m struck by ‘Moon Struck.’ It’s just that organic lovestep is so.damn.charming. It really is far beyond where most music is at today. I do wish he would provide where he got the vocals from, though…

Viceroy · Chase Us Around (feat. Madi Diaz)

I'm pretty sure I gotta get the fuck outside more.

Every time I hear a Viceroy production, it always reminds me of how much I gotta get out of the house! As you can imagine, I’m one who dwells in a cellar for weeks on end, but at least I’m starting to realize my foolish ways. And hopefully Viceroy’s latest will break me of this dreaded curse! (though, probably not)

‘Chase Us Around’ is another Viceroy attempt at the Caribbean steel drum style with a wee bit of the dirty bass and highs that’ll make the best of beach jams. And of course we can’t forget the fun loving vocals by Madi Diaz. I can’t say I’m the biggest fan of her sound, she’s almost too fun loving for me, but they fit this Viceroy jam like a glove.
