1. Cerrone – Love in C Minor
Can disco get sexier than this? French drummer Cerrone brings it on with everything in this track. the occasional women moaning violently to the groove, to the bombastic instrumental parts. It’s like your hanging on the shoulder of Grace Jones showing you around studio 54 for the first time. mysterious, bold and sexy, all at the same time.
2. Midnight Magic – Beam Me Up (Jacques Renault Remix)
Fanacy first feel in love with disco when she saw Midnight Magic play at a festival on Corsica 2013. When she introduced them to Chris he got mutual feelings for their music. We believe that Midnight Magic is one of the most authentic disco bands of our times. The voice of Tiffany Roth blended up with the live instruments and alot of filthy reverbs delivers a warm and unik sound to their productions. And when Jack Renault makes a nu-disco remix of this it’s just pure ear candy!
3. The Jones Girls – Dance Turned Into A Romance (1980)
The three sisters were brought up with gospel and raised in to the disco scene. There is something about sisters singing harmonies, their voices are so slightly similar that it just gives this crispy dubb feel that is impossible to make with just one single voice. And the way they sing is just so sassy and smooth, we love it!
4. Bibi Flash Histoire d’1 Soir (Bye Bye Les Galères) 1983
Bibi is fairly unknown but the music she released in the 80ies is great! We really appreciate this song that we play during almost every DJ set. It just got that perfect blend between cocky french and silly disco, that makes one happy and giggly when listening.
5. Brigitte – A Bouche Due Veux-Tu (Yuksek Remix)
Yuksek is a great producer and when he remixes french pop in to a nu-disco track it can’t be anything than marveolus. Ever since we started working together this song has been one of our core inspirations. The voices of Brigitte are great and together with the blend of synths used it brings an awesome groove. The arpeggio is like sparkles in the sky!
6. Corine – Il fait chaud
We love Corine! It’s the perfect mix with her voice and together with the sound pallet made by Marc Collin (Nouvelle Vague) and Dorion Fiszel.
It feels a bit old school but with the modern way of producing just sounds so NU and right!
We also feel very inspired by the quarky and poetic lyrics about beaches, drinks and casual love:)
7. Donna Summer – Mc Arthur Park (Park Suite Version)
This song is just over the top in so many ways and that’s why we love it. Everything just cooks down to one of the greatest disco songs ever. Donna Summers rendition with her super diva output together with Giorgo Moroder in the producer chair takes us to heaven. When that brass hook/interplay after the second chorus hits, Mamma mia!
8. Goody Goody – It Looks Like Love
This song is just so ahead of its time. Released back in 1978. If this groove won’t make you dance, nothing will. And have in mind that the continuous groove is played live all thru which is just amazing. When the guitar disappears for a while and then suddenly comes back, the groove just hits you in the head like a hammer. We just say WOW!
9. Shalamar – A Night To Remember
The nr.1 moodlifter. Everytime we hear this song out, we need to stop the conversation and just feel the groove. Got all the recipes for a great disco track, great hook, swag vocals and harmonies, guitar licks from another planet, cocky strings & horns. It doesn’t come as a suprise that it’s co-founded by the Soul train goodfather Don Cornelius.
10. Night Tempo – Tempo Side [FULL ALBUM]
This is a pretty bizarre but interesting genre growing called “vaporware” or “futurefunk”. Inspired by the french house movement. 70-80s disco & funk music from mainly Japan, heavily sampled, filtered and cut up and reworked. This is our remedy while we wait for the the next Daft Punk – Discovery album 😉
