Dust off those dancing shoes and raid your granny’s closet for this next featured playlist – Nu Disco Electronic Funk House by Aloysius Tak on Spotify will give you that discodust glow as well as transform the world into your dancefloor.
Undoubtedly, a well-curated playlist that deserves to be featured, Nu Disco Electronic Funk House by Aloysius Tak leaves no space for garbage. It’s also the kind of playlist that you can put on shuffle at a party without a worry. Hence, it took me some time to pick out my top 10.
Without Lies by Aeroplane (Breakbot Remix)
Because of the Pacman sample intro and some bass-slapping, I prefer the Breakbot remix over the Black Van remix. Still, they both did a spectacular job transforming this song into entirely different vibes. Released in 2010, Aeroplane indeed hit the spot for its unique funk and mesmerizing vocals by Sky Ferreira.
Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love) by Spiller
Produced by Italian electronic music producer Spiller, Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love), peaked the charts back in 2000 a month following its official release. Above all the funky guitar strumming patterns, glamorous bells and layers of strings, Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s chic vocals ultimately made it as one of the best Nu Disco songs ever.
All You’re Waiting For (feat. Nancy Whang) by Classixx
Another feel-good Hollywood glamour music perfect for window shopping, Classixx released their LP Hanging Gardens in 2013, which included All You’re Waiting For. Featuring Nancy Whang and her IDGAF attitude, this song also gave us that 80’s Summer BlockBuster movie soundtrack feels but with modern synth textures.
Move Your Feet by Junior Senior
Released worldwide in 2003, Move Your Feet became Junior Senior’s most significant hit before they split up in 2008. The lively brass section, inviting vocals, and a good boost of energy obviously made this song climb the charts. The tiny bells sprinkled throughout also added to its sparkle.
Paris (Aeroplane Remix) by Friendly Fires
Friendly Fires released their second single Paris from their self-titled debut album back in 2008 which was later remixed by Aeroplane featuring Au Revoir Simone on lead vocals. This song not only screams fashion, catwalk, and editorial but also speaks the language of the polite society. Above all, the soft vocals made the song way more classy and sexy at the same time. Thus, making this one, the most played tracks in my playlist.
Doses & Mimosas by Cherub
Without a doubt, Cherub released one of the best pool party anthems Doses & Mimosas in 2012, which charted in 2014. Particularly, those after-graduation-nothing-matters-anymore-let’s-crash-our-neighbor’s-pool after after party. It still makes me want to fix myself a drink or ten and bang some randos now. Simpler times that I absolutely miss during this pandemic.
The Beatles by Shy Child
Unlike the rest of the songs in the Liquid Love Album, Shy Child nudged authenticity in the song The Beatles. Taking distinct elements from another song and openly justifying it through the lyrics, the song created a compelling argument about how music can be shaped and molded into something new. To clarify, listen to Say It Right by Nelly Furtado and compare the two choruses.
Back to the Future – Monte Remix by Andre Crom, Martin Dawson, Roland Clark, Monte
Another 80’s futuristic trip to the grid horizon, Back to the Future, will make you feel like you are entering Tron for the nth time, hovering through the space highway. Released in 2012, Andre Crom, Martin Dawson, and Roland Clark captured the badass attitude as well as the overall essence of traveling to the year 3000.
Disco Yes by Tom Misch, Poppy Ajudha
Tom Misch 2018 album, Geography, included Disco Yes featuring Poppy Ajudha as well as distinct guitar riffs. The song carried out a unique combination of disco, funk and jazzy but lively tunes that’s been blended to perfection. The sweetness of both vocals also contributed to the overall atmosphere of the song. In short, it’s my kind of ice breaker song to start filling up the dance floor.
Go All Night by Gorgon City feat Jennifer Hudson
Finally, one of my favorite opening songs for a bangers night, Gorgon City’s Go All Night delivering high powered beats and Jennifer Hudson’s solid vocals. It’s like Vogue on steroids but in a good way. To summarize, this song brings so many intense layers in every transition. Indeed an ideal energy boost for club all-nighters.
