Oftentimes you will notice that producer/DJs alternate big room EDM tracks with commercial, vocal songs to show both their talent in the studio and to expand their reach in various arenas. New York-based duo and frequent collaborators with lovable long-haired prankster producer Tommie Sunshine (as Fries and Shine), Disco Fries does just that with their recent releases. Released during the Winter Music Conference, “Love Me Right” is an energetic hands-in-the-air commercial electro record featuring a diva vocal performance by Amba Tremain (recently heard on Boy George’s album ‘This is What I Do’). The song stands out for just that reason – you can count on one hand the number of recent tracks where you hear a singer with a strong voice really SINGING boldly – and the lyrics almost qualify as Nu-House since those classic themes haven’t been explored in dance music lately. Teamed with rising Dutch producer Loopers (who recently did a banging remix of the Matthew Koma vocal version of Showtek/Justin Prime collab “Cannonball (Earthquake)”), the Disco Fries duo unleash the banging big room track “Exposure,” which combines many of the current electro sounds with a progressive-sounding drop. The contrast of the hard and soft make the track stand out from recent releases as well. These two tracks show their depth as producers and when combined with their energetic DJ performances (as seen multiple times during Winter Music Conference), it’s easy to see why they continue to rise in the world of EDM.
