Disco Diaries 45: Curated By Bit Funk

It’s time for another artist-curated Disco Diaries, and this week we’ve got none other than Brooklyn-based DJ/producer Bit Funk. If you didn’t already deduce by his name, Bit Funk’s veteran disco and house expertise makes him the perfect candidate to provide us with the smooth jams and firsthand commentary for this week’s playlist.

After you’ve delved into the below selection, be sure to check out Bit Funk’s own tunes as well. My personal recommendations would be his soothing remix of Pharcyde’s Runnin’, his catchy take on Jutty Ranx’s I See You, and of course the appropriately-titled Soul Satisfaction EP. Lucky for you, most of Bit Funk’s releases are also available as free downloads here.

Daniel Leseman – Drums [Outplay]
I’m a really big fan of Daniel Leseman and all of the Outplay guys. This track has a really authentic mix of organic sounds and syncopated keyboards. It’s both super chill and smooth while also grabbing your attention immediately.

KOA – All My Love [Future Classic]
I tried to veer in the direction of lesser known songs for this, but I kept going back to this KOA track out on Future Classic. I absolutely love the top-line melody on this one, and I’ve been playing it out as much as possible lately, despite its BPM being a bit on the high side for most of my shows.

Session Victim – Never Forget [Delusions Of Grandeur]
This one is a slow builder, but stick with it, trust me. The piano is amazing. It gets me every time.

Meramek & Tropixx – Only You [Anjunadeep]
I’ll admit there are a lot of songs coming out these days like this. I get emailed about 10 of them per day. This one stands out for a few reasons, but the biggest one for me is that its production is absolutely flawless. So when I listen to this, I’m totally nerding out in my head trying to deconstruct all of the elements of the mix and how they fit together. It also goes over great in the club.

Myrone – Exclusive Coupe
And now for something just a little different… This is the greatest ’80s theme not actually written in the ’80s. I love everything Myrone does but this one in particular stands out to me as excellent.
