Some disco sounds good right about now. Buffalo NYC-based duo Solidisco have been releasing a solid stream of disco remixes and sample records over the past few years. There was that Sweet Sensation-sampling “Hooked” record (with the sick JWLS remix) and “Never Let You Go” (my trainspotter brain couldn’t clock that sample), and a really funky mix of Natali Yura’s “Scream For Love.” For their new single “Top of the World,” Solidisco mined the Salsoul catalog, found Skyy’s 1980 record “Here to You,” sampled one vocal line and built a funky disco track around it. Fitting perfectly with the DJ Cassidy record we just wrote up, “TOTW” shares the low-120s BPM and that “feel good” run-to-the-dancefloor vibe. It really is a refreshing change from all the aggressive electro that seems to be dominating clubland at the moment. Could you imagine a night where the DJ mixed in these records along with some of the ’90s Nu-house alongside some electro and stadium as well? That sure sounds like the “Top of the World” to me.
