“Atomic” is the debut release from Brooklyn-based DJ/production duo Alchemical Disco (Ayesha Adamo and Lucius von Wahnfried), as well as the debut release on their new imprint, Newroz Recordings. This revival of Blondie’s classic began with a single question: what would it sound like if Giorgio Moroder had produced this song? With that concept as the catalyst, Alchemical Disco set out to reinvent Blondie’s punk/new wave hit by adding a late 1970’s Italo disco flavor to their all new sonic elements.
Ayesha Adamo: “The thing is, we both first heard “Atomic” in the movie Trainspotting, and then discovered Blondie’s original version. This was long before Alchemical Disco—long before I ever met Lucius. I was too young to go to clubs, and dance music was still underground in the US, but that was the movie that introduced me to it and eventually gave me the idea that I could be a DJ. Of course, the Blondie original is a classic, so we wanted to do it justice and go all the way. We’ve got 30-stack vocals going on at some points. It’s pretty epic, which is fitting: Atomic is that explosive love thing that you feel on the dancefloor like it might be the last night of your life. It should go all the way.”
Nearly all of the sounds on this release have been created using self-built analog modular synthesizers soldered by Lucius himself, and custom designed to give that fat, organic sound. Additionally, the duo’s choirs of polyphonic vocals, guitar, and occasional live drums and bass all help to maintain the live rock feel that the song deserves, as well as confirm Alchemical Disco’s unique ability to perform not only as producer/DJs, but also as a band.
Additionally, this release features individual remixes from Ayesha and Lucius. The Ayesha Adamo Remix takes things underground, combining militaristic tech drums, sexy serpentine basslines, and a bit of acid for good measure, all interwoven about stunningly stripped down vocals. The Lucius von Wahnfried Remix matches stadium crushing EDM style with classic analog synth sounds, creating tastefully epic drops that won’t exhaust the ears. And you can also thank Mr. von Wahnfried for the impressive cover art. This duo does it all.
Marrying the past with the future, musically and otherwise, Alchemical Disco’s emergence in today’s climate of male-dominated dance music is not unlike Blondie’s presence in the similarly male-dominated punk/new wave scene of the 1970’s. By taking a place in the family tree that grew distinctively New York artists like Blondie, Alchemical Disco brings it back to the city that never sleeps, expressing the life, subculture and spirit of their own New York through music.

Sinful Nuns Go Wild In “Religion” Music Video By Shura
Shura stars a lesbian version of the Pope in her recent video for “Religion”.
Shura stars a lesbian version of the Pope in her recent video for “Religion (U Can Lay Your Hands On Me)”. Definitely, she knows how to create controversy. In the clip, you will see two sinful nuns making out for the first time. So, if you wonder how nuns deal with sexual urges, these funny visuals might give you a clue, LOL. Moreover, the song itself is a catchy Disco gem. It sounds so sexy that I swear I’m listening to the whole track on repeat. Undoubtedly, Shura is a new artist to watch in 2019.

This Heartbreaking Music Video From Madonna Will Make You Cry
Madonna has written her deepest song ever! “God Control” forms part of her 14th studio album, ‘Madame X’.
Madonna has written her deepest song ever! “God Control” forms part of her 14th studio album, ‘Madame X’. I would dare to say it’s innovating as this is the first time I hear a political song under the Disco genre. In addition, you can expect a heartbreaking music video about gun violence. Trust me, if you are a highly emotional person like myself, this clip will make you cry.
Somehow, visuals remind me of the tragic shooting massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida (2016). This horrible incident must not happen again, and I really hope we can become aware that violence won’t solve anything. The Queen Of Pop has stated that she would like to see changes in the American legislation. Indeed, sooner or later we have to wake up!

Get Your Dancing Shoes For Disco, Madonna Teases “God Control” Visuals
Madonna is making her return to the D.I.S.C.O. game with a brand new single called “God Control”. In my opinion, this is the best track off her latest album, ‘Madame X’. Recently, The Queen of Pop teased the upcoming “God Control” visuals via Instagram. If I’m not mistaken, the song is a critique of America’s gun laws. Certainly, this subject got people’s attention and without a doubt, it already smells like a BIG funky hit. I think it was filmed in New York City and it’s also inspired by the legendary Studio 54 club. Can’t wait to watch the full video this Friday. Stay tuned!
