New disco recommendations?

I've been playing that Cosmic Force "Trinidad Bump/Chocolate Starfish" joint out a lot. Always gets a good response on the dancefloor and it always blends nicely with OG disco tunes or really just anything in that tempo range. I want more of that stuff, but I'm not up on all the crazy 12" that I probably need out there. I've been hearing some interesting new disco stuff from Norway. It doesn't have to be straight retro sounding, as long as it thumps and it's not too techno-ish. Something that fits in the mix with older as well as newer tracks.

    Escort (nu-disco group from NYC) released three great 12inches
    Kathy Diamond - two 12inches, both produced by Maurcie Fulton, heat, she gonna drop LP soon

    also In Flagranti LP although they go aometimes into disco-punk direction so i dont know if this is what you are after

    on norwegian tip i particualrly enjoy Lindstrom and Todd Terje productions



    and btw: that Cosmic Force isnt Dimitri From Paris alias and both tracks arent edits of old obscure tunes ?

  • You should wait for the Million Dollar Orchestra album.. it??s gonna be off the hook!

    Heard something about Dim, but also that this is a new band, and not edits of old tunes..

    DJ Donger has this shit (he only does it at his super exclusive gigs, though) where he plays a kazoo with his butt over a stripped down dub of Super Jake. He calls it "Chocolate Skinflute".

    Don't laugh, you have to book me at least one year in advance to see that show.

    Check out Beatconductor and all his various aliases- lots of new productions that sample classics and sometimes sound classic as well as some great edits of classics.

    i know these aren't new and they are edits of old tunes but i've really been enjoying the theo parrish ugly edits lately

    Kathy Diamond's album is pretty good, if a bit coffeetable in parts

    love that tangoterje MJ remix but that might be old, i dunno as i'm not exactly with it when it comes to this stuff (although i'd like to be moreso)

    i've heard good things about the new phantom slasher too, if someone knows about this they should talk about it

    i'm going to shut up now and take in yr collective wisdom


  • remake of sooner or later/ chas jankel on vox...bear label.


    also can somebody post an mp3 of trinidad bump ?

    justice is killin it right now as well.

    Someone just said he has a full length EP coming out.

    As far as Danny goes, he is OG. He was making new disco when no one else was doing it, or even listening for it. Never one to follow trends...

  • bubor0ckbubor0ck 141 Posts
    pony,
    environ newsletter said something about a geist solo album dropping around summer, I think. A few tracks with the dude from junior boys on that..metro area full length was sometime after that, also a new kelley polar lp.

    darshan from MA also co-produced that tracey thorne single w/ ewan pearson recently.

    ) Philosophy of BALIHU: disco, sampling, rhythm and future plans. When do you work on a new track what kind of approach do you prefer? Immediate and instinctive or technical and rational?

    ACTUALLY let me be very specific. I basically hate sampling old disco records. If someone has not enough originality to make a bassline or melody, they shouldn???t make music. But lately, I sampled a rhythm pattern from a record - just because I haven???t done it for a long time, and I don???t want to be too dogmatic!!


    thoughts on this comment... dogmatic or contrary ?

    i think sampling old music has to do with alot more then just originality...cmon.
