It’s been a promising year for American breakthrough outfit Disco Fries. Found holding the fort alongside Tommie Sunshine for Vicious Recordings earlier this year, the New York-based duo finds themselves in the hands of MYNC’s Cr2 Records imprint with a purebred peak time set-piece to add to their ever-expanding arsenal. The grinding festival formula is there and with tough yet exuberant stamina, Disco Fries look to be warming up considerably well for the foreseeable future.
The Disco Fries are back, this time with a genre bending track that we can’t even come close to categorizing. “Murika” starts off with a light synth infused house beat before an organ melody takes over and the track drops into a modulated vocoder sound. The track includes almost every type of genre in the game, a collection of everything that is inspiring The Disco Fries at the moment. Our description does this track no justice, you’re gonna have to listen to this one yourselves.
Massive tracks usually warrant massive remix packages, and that’s exactly what we have here with the “Cool Without You” remix bundle. The Fries & Shine boys have carefully hand picked seven different producers whose task was to transform the disco-laden gem into something of their own. It’s an eclectic collection of talent spanning from young trance star Audien to a pair of duos, The Partysquad and Tommy Lee & Aero. The remix pack is set to be released February 11th, but don’t you worry – we have the exclusive preview below.
After publicly stating his opinion on “EDM” in recent guest blogs, Tommie Sunshine started quite a stir in the dance music community, causing global fans to chime in on the sensitive debate of old vs. new culture. While the debate continues on, Tommie’s latest release, “Cool Without You,” with Disco Fries and Kid Sister, is sure to encourage everyone to forget their differences and dance. Heard first at Afrojack’s Jacked NYE in NYC, the funky basslines and catchy vocal combine a disco-like feel with the energy of big room house that will have you hooked instantly.
Following their debut collab ‘Don’t Look Back’, Fries and Shine return with a disco fueled banger entitled ‘Cool Without You’, which features Fool’s Gold artist Kid Sister on vocals. The follow up has funky basslines, catchy vocals and an energetic flow to get you hooked instantly. The tune is slated for release on January 21th, check out the preview taken live from JACKED NYE @ Pier 94 below.
Dancing Astronaut Radio is back with its 26th episode of Axis, brought to you this week by New York City natives The Disco Fries. In their hour-long mix, Nick and Danny have showcased their brand new single “Don’t Let Me Down,” along with a handful of tracks that you might not be familiar with, from artists including TJR, John Dahlback, and GTA. If you’re looking for something a little funky and different for your weekend parties, make sure to check out this mix; we promise you won’t be disappointed. For the complete tracklist and new single, click past the break.
The Disco Fries return with another hard hitting production, this time remixing fast rising British pop singer – Neon Hitch. In many ways the pop remix is what Nick & Danny do best – take your run of the mill Top 40 track and turn it into a massive electro tune with buzzing bass lines and thumping kicks. While not out yet, the boys offered up a full length preview for your listening pleasure.
Disco Fries have taken “Silhouettes,” one of Avicii’s most euphoric tracks and turned it on its head. Their remix maintains Salem al Fakir’s dulcet vocals and aspects of Avicii’s signature progressive sounds but have warped the drop into something entirely different. It’s often hard to separate feelings about the original when passing judgement on a remix but we think it’s worth the effort here. Although “Silhouettes” will always be one of our favorite tracks, the Disco Fries remix is admittedly more party ready. In fact, we like it more and more with each play. Grab it as a free download below!
If Tommie Sunshine and the Disco Fries have proved anything, it’s that the best things in life truly come in threes. Certainly no strangers to working together, the trio seem to be at their best when joining forces. Their recent remix of Azealia’s “212” is the first example, and the brand new video for “Don’t Look Back” — their first single together — is proof of that. Shot and filmed in New York, the video takes us on a tour of the lonelier side of the Big Apple as two single neighbors just can’t seem to notice what’s waiting for them next door. The video also features cameos from both Tommie (the dude that looks like Jesus) and the Disco Fries, who are riding the subway and eating gravy-soaked dinner frites. The track itself is fun and filled with French house elements, getting praise from the likes of Kaskade, who said of the track “5/5. I will play the CRAP out of this!” If that’s not a shining endorsement, we don’t know what is.
David Guetta played this very not safe for work remix of “212″ by Azealia Banks at his Roseland Ballroom show last night. Dance music’s resident hippie, Tommie Sunshine, and the Disco Fries collaborated to take the original version of “212″ and turn it into a dance floor ready banger. By electrifying the original bass line and sprinkling in some dutch percussion, they successfully took Banks’ rap swag and meshed it with house rhythms.
Sunshine is giving away the edit for free so there’s no excuse not to add this one to your library.
