Here are Bustin Loose’s outstanding tips for musical bliss this month!
Loveface – Loveface Saves The Day
An electro boogie mash up of the highest order, throwing together epic vocal samples of the late great Whit-ney Houston. ‘Loveface Saves The Day’ transports you back in time to the dance floors of 80s NYC, and in some style.
Foot-Loose – L.A. Piano Mood
A tremendous throwback to 90’s house culture. Donning the classic house piano is Foot-Loose who’s awe-some new release on theBasement Discos certainly has the Youtube community bouncing and hopefully nightclubs in the near future. What a tune!
Leopard Da Vinci feat. Jean Bisello – Garde Fou (El Kazed Remix)
Balearic beat at its finest. DJ Alfredo would be proud of this! Soft pads, enchanting vocals and an intricate sun-kissed beat all play into the hands of brilliantly named Leopard Da Vinci. El Kazed gives us a juiced up take on the original with this sublime remix. Ibiza sunset here we come. Another belter for the record box.
Another Chemical Love Story – Do You Feel Like I Do?
Probably my favourite of the bunch. Circumnavigating its core soul sample is a deep, James-Bond-esc, trumpet line and a traditional house beat. Shades of Denis Sulta certainly. It’s a, top notch, feel good an-them.. recently receiving praise on Radio 1. 2021’s Summer anthem? Let’s wait and see… Proper!!
Nicola Conte & Gianluca Petrella – Inner Light (Feat. Raashan Ahmad)
A deep roller using free-form, Afrocentric Jazz melodies. Raashan Ahmad’s spoken word breathes inspira-tion and wisdom; to the point where it feels like he’s speaking directly to you… In effect, he creates a strong emotional connection with us and I’m sure, in time, the dance floor.
STR4TA – Aspects – 26/03/21 – Brownswood UK – Vinyl
Last month I tipped STR4TA for big things. Now we’re back at it, showcasing the love for their upcoming album project, due for release at the end of March. Flirting with up-tempo, jazzy, dance-ready floor fillers, Gilles Peterson and Jean-Paul Maunick are onto a winner.
Belpaese – Belpaese 09 – 19/03/21 – Belpaese – Vinyl
Two fiery, fast paced, Italo-Disco edits courtesy of enigmatic label Bleepers. Perfect for those wanting to invoke that feel good energy to the dance floor. Favourite track: ‘Strumento Di Una Notte’.
Chazz – Sassy Style – 26/03/21 – Reach Out – Vinyl
Synth heavy disco-pop featuring a stunning 45 edit by Red Greg. Got a lot of time for this!
Michele – Disco Dance (Patrick Cowley 12” Mega Mix)
An outrageously groovy disco odyssey. What a trip!!
DJ, producer and creator of The Disco Express, Bustin’ Loose, is South London’s funk advocate weighing in once a month with his go-to choice of new & up-and-coming dance floor demolition.
