am feeling pretty damned ill today, so ill try to keep this short.. am trying to pep myself up as well, so i'll also try and keep it festive.
sometimes i feel like bottin's style of disco errs a little on the heavy-handed house side of things.. at other times i feel like it is just perfect. after listening to "bottin's coup d'etat" mix of his track "discocracy", my bottin-o-meter is definitely leaning more toward the "just perfect" side.
nothing too subtle or challenging here, just a whole bunch of fun with great driving synths and a "whoa-oa" laden chorus that will get under your skin.
Bottin - Discocracy (Bottin's Coup D'Etat)
this was taken from his "discocracy revisited" ep from march this year.. grab it here.
on a slightly funkier, more organic disco tip is this track "night flight to trinidad" from pat les stache.. love the twisting groove of the bassline and the sprinkling of horns & flutes throughout.
this comes from volume 5 of his cabana disco series which came out in may. you can grab that here. if you like terje, you will love les stache. if you are into this sound, then i would recommend checking out his blog american athlete, which is filled with all types of disco goodies..
