Disco is very en vogue now so you can see a new artist trying to get a bit of the cake almost every day, but only a very few number of acts really are able to impress a guy like me who spins this kind of music for more than 20 years. Marcello De Angellis aka Birdee is such a positive exception as he is stepping up the NuDisco heat in 2018. This is his joyous fourth installment on Yam Who?’s Ism Records and I can tell you the man has got album knowledge as the tracks ‘Don’t Give Up’ and ‘Do Your Thing’ both are playable in any Disco set and are a wonderful companion in a car stereo or even at home as well. Plenty of funky bass, rolling guitars, Disco-esque beat programming and memorable vocals are there, and this is everything it really needs! My personal pick is the 80s boogie influenced title track, a wonderful tune to dance to! They are existing, the Joey Negros of tomorrow, let’s just be thankful for that!
