Boombox III – Quality Soul & Swinging Disco

‘Starlight’, the debut single from Brooklyn disco revivalists Escort came out 6 years ago, but is no less relevant than it was after its release. Part of it is its nailing of disco chic (and post-disco synth squiggles), part of it is that after dropping a string of singles, the act finally released its self-titled debut album last year, thereby reintroducing the song. And the newest part of it is that it's been remixed for the band's upcoming ‘Escort Remixed’, out on October 16th. The compilation collects some already released mixes as well as some new ones, like the RAC remix of ‘Starlight’, which I play in this third part of of ‘Boombox’. This remix of ‘Starlight’ spices up the track with a more Italo-indebted bass line, while retaining the sharp strings and Adeline Michele's lush vocals. It breathes new life into a club track that has shown no signs of fading, ever since its birth.

And don’t forget to listen to La Bionda, a duo formed by brothers Carmelo and Michelangelo La Bionda, who are supposed to be the inventors of Italian disco music. They are best known for ‘One for you, one for me’.

Lana Del Rey will release ‘Born to die: the paradise edition’, which contains new tracks like ‘Ride’ and ‘Blue velvet’, on November 12th.
