Rise and shine! Disco Diaries is coming in hot with a brand new exclusive, two funky remixes, and two captivating originals from a few of our favorite nu disco artists.
PREMIERE: Ganzfeld Effect – Golden
Through never-ending renditions and remixes, Jill Scott’s 2004 Golden has achieved a timeless eminence that’s infiltrated nearly all genres of music. The latest rendition comes to us from Manchester-based duo Ganzfeld Effect, and LessThan3 has the exclusive premiere for you.
In signature British fashion, Ganzfeld Effect has contributed a thumping bass and pitched-down, looped vocals to deliver a product that is refreshingly distinguishable from the original. From the release of their first single Only You in 2013, to their Spinnin’ Deep-supported Going Deep, to their 2014 EP Speakers, it’s quite evident that Ganzveld Effect continue growing at an undeviating pace.
Golden will be available as a free download via Ganzfeld Effect’s SoundCloud May 5.
June Marieezy – Fly (FKJ Remix) [Roche Musique]
Texas-born June Marieezy made a wise decision when she lent her original, the downtempo Fly, to the superbly talented beat-maker known as French Kiwi Juice. The result speaks for itself. Grab the single via Beatport here and be sure to catch FKJ on his current North America tour through the end of May.
Kraak & Smaak feat. Keyhole – All I Want Is You [Boogie Angst]
Dutch trio Kraak & Smaak have been making major waves in the electro funk world since their 1999 EP Money In The Bag, and they’re clearly not slowing down anytime soon. After adopting a house-y feel with their last Spinnin’ Deep release, Mountain Top, their quintessential groove has made a valiant return with All I Want Is You. Beatport purchase here.
Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding – Outside (Funk LeBlanc Remix)
Several remixes of Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding’s Outside have come and gone, but none rival the fresh sound and uniquely hilarious artwork of Funk LeBlanc’s. Initiate summertime vibes with free downloads of his releases here.
LA PRIEST – Party Zute / Learning To Love [Domino]
If you were fooled by the mellow intro, you’re in for a satisfying surprise right around the 2:20 mark and through the end of this magnificently distinct tune. As stated by his record label Domino, LA PRIEST’s music is well-summarized by the mantra, “If it doesn’t conform it’s because it’s not supposed to.” His debut album Inji is set for a June 29 release, and you can pre-order it here.
