On Repeat : She Said Disco edition

Once again She Said Disco has selected some personal favorites, imported directly from his crates to our blog. Some you may know and hopefully some will be cherished discoveries…with no further delay. On Repeat: She Said Disco Edition //

 Paradis – Parfait tirage

Paradis, always a fav to me. I don’t know why they seems to be the only band who mix melodramatic french singing and techno. The two genres actually blend well. Go for a long walk in Paris streets for one night, you will understand why this sound is so effective.

Tinashe – Vulnerable (Gold fields remix)

Gold Fields know how to wrap a track into something sweet, they give this delicate touch to all of their remixes, it flows like water, I could listen to this forever.

FM Attack – Corazon

For everyone who loves Italo-disco and Synthpop and who didn’t know about this band (like me), well it is for you. Their LP “Deja  Vu” is a gem, a journey into a digital world made of shitty 3D and love.

VentureX- Never 2 young

Check out the first release from Stratford Court: Amicus Curiae, a compilation of 31 tracks from fresh disco cuts to slow boogie jams featuring secret disco lords such as Hemingway, Sloslylove, Flamingosis, etc… Hit the auto-repeat button, put your headphones, and go to the beach, now!

Toni Toni Lee – Girl I used to know (Shazam remix)

I think I play this song almost every time I dj, it’s sweet, dark and nostalgic. A perfect secret weapon and a perfect night anthem to make people dance under the rain (in slow motion).

Phoenix – SOS In Bel Air (Jackson and His Computer Band Remix)

Phoenix, although they seem to have slipped gradually into guilty pleasure territory they still have a place in my heart. Jackson and His Computer Band take this one into new depths and as the song unfolds it earns the honorable mention that is a blog post. The vocals take a journey through electronic landscapes less dreamy and more future of the funk. The mix feels kinetic and live, more like the magic one experiences when a dj is deep in his groove than some finished and polished piece. Feeling this. Binary approves.

FM Attack – Fade Away with Julian Sanza (AIMES Remix)

FM Attack. Premiere….(intentional pause inserted for reverence) ….. Ok we can continue. The Deja Vu album was one of my favorites in any genre last year, just ask my iTunes “most played”. With this remix we have AIMES taking the reins to direct the song into funky bouncy 80s heaven. Still full of synth magic, still awesome but infused with a dreamy hopeful urgency. The vocals take on a clarity that suits the arrangement perfectly.Allow this one to sweep you away.

EAGLES – HOTEL CALIFORNIA (LUXXURY EDIT)

The Baron takes the Eagles on a robotic acid trip and the results are superb. Pass the purple stuff and disappear only to reappear in an alternate dimension before slip sliding through the 11th portal of your minds eye…or…throw this on as you slide through the evening streets, a smile spreading across your face, a feeling of well being passing through your body and a surge of optimism in your spirit. Either of those is acceptable, anything less is death.  Free Download?! Too kind.

On Repeat : She Said Disco Edition!

Hey guys. we are excited to have a new series of posts, those of you binary O.Gs will remember our On Repeat series, mainly written by the notorious Joshua Legg among other close fam., we are stoked to be bringing that back with a series of guest writers selecting the tunes and writing their thoughts on each selection. First up is a long time favorite of ours –  She Said Disco aka Utomo Briard. Don’t mind the language barrier, this dude knows what’s up.With no further intro –  On Repeat : She Said Disco Edition

She Said Disco‘s selecta #1

Knight One – Hollow (feat. POINDEXTER)

Excitement. Everybody remembers Knight One for some reasons, here is finally his debut EP. This one is featuring vocals from Poindexter. This is nostalgic, ethereal, sensual, in one word it’s beautiful, perfect for slow-motion love falling.

ROMAN D’AMOUR – Starlette (feat. Ja Miron)

This guy last EP is a bliss, he manages to keep his own specific style with this a smoother twist which works perfectly. A dynamic winter hit here to warm your heart. Ja Miron’s voice gives the nostalgic touch to this awake dream, where you are certainly a shiny superstar on the top of the world.

Moullinex – To Be Clear (Zimmer Remix)

To be clear, the original track was one of my favourite of Moullinex’s album Flora, but the balearic Zimmer’s touch empowers it into a shiny holiday anthem that already gives us a taste of the upcoming long-awaited spring.

Dillon Francis – Without You (feat. T.E.E.D.) [Hayden James Remix]

This version of Dillon Francis and TEED by Hayden James is for the dreamers, the perfect soundtrack to try to remember again of your teenage first kiss.

Roosevelt – Elliot

Take Caribou, mix it with house, put a folk voice, you obtain this track. A chilly housey secret weapon that surely everybody will enjoy and dance to (my bet).

Hemingway – Bombay

Hemingway, our dear friend and trusted supplier of tunes. Thank you for this gem. I was getting bored. A lot of same-same sounding jams, yawn, too much complacency and as I shift away from electronic music and return to the Smiths, this shows up. Tempo changes, grand sweeping atmosphere….yes please. Thanks for reminding me to keep digging. Groovy, creative, eclectic, dreamy, sweet tempo…..feeling it. Get familiar.

St. Lucia – All Eyes On You (Goldroom Remix)

St.Lucia and Goldroom. What else really needs to be said? If you are not familiar, get familiar, If you are already down, lean back and let the sax and vibes escort you to another zone. As always Josh,is on point. From the first notes we are smiling, the vocals dance in and out, ghostly and fitting, the baseline slinks in and the soothing groove comes into full focus. There is a longing, a reflective pleasure. Right up our alley and a welcomed departure from the after holiday, pre- new years crash/re-grouping. So smooth.Float away.

LIFELIKE – ‘Night Patrol’ (Radio Edit)

LIFELIKE bring this gem to you specifically,fresh out of the Parisian streets…full of all the life and love that accompany that visual. Think romantic and space age, think refreshing and groovy. Think of the one that got away and the subsequent missions to either forget about them or find a new distraction. As the synths swirl and the bass pushes straight ahead you are caught up in the moment. Live your life. Enjoy your life. Cherish your happy moments and stay as present as possible, tomorrow is not promised so go after what you want today. Until then- Night Patrol.
