French producer Breakbot’s first single in over two years is aptly titled Back For More, and the Ed Banger mainstay is definitely primed to reclaim his place as a leading nu disco voice with the track and his promise of a new album in early 2016.
If there was any pressure felt to deliver a track to rival his 2010 hit Baby I’m Yours, Breakbot doesn’t let it show with Back For More. Though devoid of the catchy hooks of the breakout classic, this newest showing is iconic Breakbot overflowing with jaunty bass riffs while toeing the line between nostalgic disco and modern dance music. He calls upon repeat collaborator Irfane to sing vocals over the track, but the singer’s role in Back For More is used rather for accompaniment with short, repeated lyric phrases that are vocoded alongside female vocalist Sarah Ydoux’s own breathy snippets.
As the first offering from the forthcoming album, to be titled Still Waters, it does everything to reassure fans that Breakbot hasn’t lost his touch. The track is no Baby I’m Yours reincarnation, but it definitely has us excited for the producer’s first full-length album since By Your Side and the implications the album might hold for the health of modern disco.
Still Waters has a tentative release date set for the beginning of 2016, but you can hear more from the Ed Banger artist on his SoundCloud here.
