Let’s Get This Funky Disco Party Started!

Let’s start a funky disco party! I’ve always liked Swiss experimental duo Yello. The song I picked is from their album ‘Touch Yello’ (2009). They show on 'The expert' how James Brown would have sounded if he had discovered electro in his heyday. With their recently released debut album ‘It’s Fate’, the Los Angeles based funky electro duo Touché is gearing up for some west coast dates. The killer opening track (cool lyrics!) and the lovely last track are from ‘Under the influence part 3’, a collection of rare soul and disco, compiled by connoisseur James Glass. It is out now on ZR Records! Picture on the left: Le Youth. Beautiful picture below from Anthony Catalano. Enjoy!

Next week I will kick off the summer with some warm grooves from the Capitol vaults.
