The Zar’s latest Getting Down: an original dance pop hit

An ingenious mix of DJ productions characterized by dance beats merged with house loops is what makes of The Zar’s latest Getting Down an original dance pop hit.

After growing bored of hearing the usual sound-alike club tunes that urge you to hit the dancefloor without any real enthusiasm, The Zar can change your perspective by converging some quality beats and captivating harmonies with a little help from his friend Jessy Milane.

Adorning the already smoothly placid atmosphere of the song, Jessy’s vocals add a glossy tint to the dance mood in a superb and hopefully continuative collaboration.

You can listen to Getting Down for yourself on Spotify.

SwifStyle lets you revisit the good times with their standout Funk-driven Hip Hop track “Throwback”  

https://open.spotify.com/track/0u76ZxVRqnhVKahw76qlLD

The standout single Throwback from breaking Alt Hip Hop artist SwifStyle’s latest album “The Renaissance Movement, Phase 1” serves up an infectiously adrenalizing dose of Funk and Soul. It almost makes Daft Punk’s tracks sound flat.

Throwback may aid nostalgia by catapulting you back to the time when Disco and Funk were King. But the vibrantly eclectic approach to production ensured that Throwback is as fresh as Alt Hip Hop comes.

Expect killer acoustic basslines, sensually charismatic vibing vocals, and electrically-charged melodies which will stick to your synapses long after the track has faded to a close. It’s not every day we come across a track with such visceral soul and connectable expressive passion. Don’t hang around getting SwifStyle on your radar. They won’t be up and coming for long.

The Slacksons – PLASTIC BAGS FOR SHOES: Archetype-Smashing Indie Electronica

The Slacksons have moved away from the usual aural archetypes with their latest EP “PLASTIC BAGS FOR SHOES”. If you think that the EP title is a little eccentric, just wait to hear what each of the attention piquing, mind-altering soundscapes have to offer.

Even though distinctive and truly innovative music is a hard sell in 2020, I have no doubt that The Slacksons will go far with their sublime mix of Trip Hop, Disco, Funk, Indie, and Psych.

With each track offering a discernibly different vibe and sound, the EP stands as a testament to the diversity of this exceptionally exciting up and coming UK-based artist. As difficult as it was to pick a standout favourite track, there’s just something engrossingly appealing about the ominously slicing organ wails and crunching Hard Rock riffs being instilled into the feel-good track “WAKE UP“.

J. Mic – Vibe : Funky Disco R&B

‘Vibe’ is the opening track to ‘OctNova’, the latest project by J. Mic.

What’s extraordinary about this track is that it sounds so unbelievably groovy that I can bet you that if you play it to anyone from your 10-year-old nephew to your 75-year-old grandmother; they would equally absolutely vibe with it.

The funk is real with this track. To be more accurate this is a funk/disco banger that one can claim it features some rapping (or some fast singing) in the verses before exploding in the anthemic, smooth chorus “I just wanna vibe tonight”. There’s this catchy bass line that grabs your body and makes it wobble, and that bridge sounds… oh so spicy.

‘Vibe’ can do great in your “Sexy R&B” playlist as much as your “Funky Stuff” one. This is the kind of soundtrack that you would be listening in “Grease” or “Saturday Night Fever” if these were 2019 flicks. But they aren’t, so be sure to head over to J. Mic’s Spotify page and stream ‘Vibe’.

Discover the Euphoric Funk Wrapped up in Dj Paul Vicktor’s Bass-Driven Hit “Droga”

Dj Paul Vicktor’s standout track “Droga” off their recently released third album is all about the bass, the sonic atmospherics, and wavy euphoria.

The experimental mix may not ease you in gently, but once hooked by the solid rhythm, you’ll have few little concerns about being thrown headfirst into such a high-octane, charged mix.

The duration of the tracks may be fairly short with Droga only running for 1:25 minutes. But considering that Dj Paul Vicktor has poured plenty of innovation into his mixes with the aim of creating pioneeringly enjoyable music, that’s just more of an excuse to listen to the album in full. The sublime fusion of Hip Hop, Disco, Funk and Bounce found in each of the tracks is nothing short of entrancing.

Rachel Huggins – Take Control: Funk-Infused Deep Soul

There’s probably no preparing you for the amount of soulful Disco Funk which will greet your ears when you hit play on up and coming Deep Soul artist Rachel Huggins’ latest single “Take Control”.

But considering that the single is an inspiring hit based around taking control of your life, there’s no harm in Rachel Huggins throwing you in at the effervescent deep end.

With a slightly vintage 70s tone, there’s a familiarity to the single thanks to the archaic groove and the artist’s undilutedly soulful vocals which are extremely efficacious at sharing empowering vibes. For fans of the genre, you may as well start considering Rachel Huggins a quintessential artist.

Mestizo Beat drops their latest feat of Disco Funk “Midnite Nurse”

Up and coming Disco Funk artist Mestizo Beat dropped their latest single “Midnite Nurse” on September 18th. By creating an eccentric, genre-contorting soundscape from slightly archaic tones, Mestizo Beat was able to offer the airwaves an instantaneously accessible single. But through the rhythmic experimentalism contained in Midnite Nurse, the track still boasts a contemporary feel.

With unexpected increments of tribal drums interrupting the organic progressions of wah-soaked guitars, Mestizo Beat keeps you hooked in the high-energy instrumental mix. If you like your Funk with plenty of arrestive groove, it’s safe to say that you’ll love the colourful 70s nostalgia which Midnite Nurse throws at you.

Gold Blooded Woman drops their latest euphoric dance hit “Blood is Blood”

Up and coming Dance House artist Gold Blooded Woman dropped their latest anthemically danceable track “Blood is Blood” on September 24th sharing with the airwaves an accessibly immersive radio-ready hit.

Even though Blood is Blood has plenty in common with hit 90s dance tracks, the artist didn’t fail to weave plenty of fresh, new, vibrant energy into the mix. There’s a fair amount of Disco Funk infused into the beats, giving Blood is Blood an infectious snappy rhythm which may need a little bit of convincing to leave your synapses alone. Any fans of Daft Punk, The Weeknd, and Deadmau5 will definitely want to put Gold Blooded Woman on their radar.

DANCE PARTY – TOO HOT TO TOUCH: The Party has just started

Spreading some off-the-hook vibes of the late 70’s, Dance Party make their way onto the dance floor with their latest “Too hot to touch”, a radio hit that could definitely pump up your ride and give Disco music a fresh new start.

As soon as you hit play you can’t help but dance along (whether you’re sitting or standing) and snap your fingers to the beat. The synth melody sets the tempo (with its crescendo in the first bits) and brings in a disco-mixed-house atmosphere that reminiscences that Disco Inferno era. The hook on the guitar solo and the solo itself perfectly wedge in the rhythm leading to a voice solo chorus part that holds up the beat and makes you clap along.

“Too hot to touch” is a hint to one simple thing: the party has just started.
