Despite my indie music tendencies, I’m sure my influences are deeply rooted in 70s Disco and 80s New Wave. I would say this is an effect of listening to my dad’s record collection back when I was in grade school. I remember getting annoyed with him whenever he played Toto, Kalapana, Earth Wind & Fire, Bee Gees, and all those oldie jams. But deep inside, I was actually enjoying it.
This mix is inspired by that experience. I compiled some of the songs I’ve been listening to the past days that have that pre-electro/semi-disco vibe but were released in the last 3-5 years. Songs featured here are:
- Paris (Au Revoir Simone Remix): Friendly Fires
- Feel It: Karmon
- Folding Hills (feat. Xavier Dunn): FORD
- Control (feat. Caroline Smith): Gigamesh
- Party In Me: Yung Bae
