Some pairings just work well together. The Banger Bros teamed up with Melakai a few years ago, and the resulting “Beep Beep Boom” buzzed from the underground to dance radio. Keeping the vibe, Banger Brother Scott Binder has reunited with Melakai to create “Good Time Tonight,” effectively a modern electro take of the classic Kool & the Gang “Celebration.” Well, it’s not exactly a cover or a sample, but the way the title is sung is so similar to the disco classic, and the word “disco” is repeated throughout, it can hardly be a coincidence. The beats are electro and energetic, with Melakai keeping the same tone as “Beep Beep Boom” – playful, fun, and sexy with a bit of an edge – kind of like Dev before she got too serious. There mixes from Damon Daniel, SpekrFreks, and Banger Bros are all different electro interpretations, adding everything from rave, video game noises, glitch, and feedback to give it a different flavor. The Hoxton Whores mix goes in a more bouncy house direction with a touch of the retro feel- imagine if Crazibiza channeled the ’90s to get an idea. “Good Time Tonight” is a fun, strong release perfectly suited for the club, a girls’ night out, or even possibly the radio.
