Long before today’s electronic music existed and even before the rise of purist house music, there was disco. It was disco that began the modern dance revolution, and Dumbers & MAXIMALS‘s new track “Dancin’” proves that it still holds the timeless power to get a crowd grooving. The Protocol Recordingsproducers give a fresh twist on the label’s familiar house sound with the funky, bouncy bass line of “Dancin’“, which is accented by soulful melodies that make the track’s title come to life. Dumbers & MAXIMALS have managed to take a vintage-inspired sound and make it accessible to the modern generation of electronic music lovers, which is a unique move at a time when the music scene is so focused on futuristic productions.

Founded by Nicky Romero, Protocol Recordings is synonymous with house and progressive house music. However, the label has been signing dynamic up-and-coming talent – such as Dumbers & MAXIMALS – and thus diversifying its music. MAXIMALS is an Italian duo who are inspired by the atmosphere of dance music in the ’70s and ’80s, while Dumbers brings his experience playing in funk and rock bands to the table – all influences that are evident in the vibe of “Dancin‘”. Dumbers & MAXIMALS have received support from the likes of Thomas Gold, Firebeatz and more. Perhaps they will be the ambassadors to bring “old school”, disco-influenced music back to the mainstream! Stay tuned for more releases on Protocol Recordings from each of these talented producers.

Enjoy Arlin & Michel Gonzalez’s 7-Track EP ‘Green Light’ — LISTEN
There are so many good songs on ‘Green Light’, a 7-track EP from Miami-based artists Arlin (singer) & Michel Gonzalez (instrumentals). Certainly, most of these songs remind me of those classic Disco-Pop ballads from the late 70s. In essence, your nostalgic soul will love the whole material. Vocals are strong, crystal-clear and seductive. With comparisons to the likes of Disco legends like Celi Bee, Madleen Kane, and France Joli, it’s impossible not to be moved by Arlin’s voice.
Among my favorites is the first track, “Let You Down”, which starts with acoustic guitars and a touch of funkiness. However, I can see people grooving on the dancefloor with “Blah, Blah, Blah”. Therefore, it’s no exaggeration to say, it deserves to be on heavy rotation at clubs. Also, with soul flavors, she creates a love anthem called “The One To Stay”, which bursts with romantic lyrics and a high energetic melody. Currently available on all digital platforms, the ‘Green Light’ EP is surprisingly enjoyable. The singer of Cuban origin will perform her next concert on June 15th at the Koubek Center of Miami Dade. A show you won’t want to miss!

Mattjax Unleashes Pure Disco Goodness With New EP ‘Back To 69’
Mattjax teams up with Dynamique to deliver a fantastic EP entitled ‘Back To 69’. Pure Disco goodness is in the air, as it features two gorgeous tunes that have funky guitar riffs and seductive vocals as a common denominator. On the one hand, the sweet groove of the self-titled track “Back To 69”, forces listeners to relive the memories where platform shoes and mirror balls were the norm. In truth, I would have liked it to last much longer than just two and a half minutes. While, on the other, “Like A Melody” is filled with smooth and sexy beats to play next time you need to set the mood for a romantic escapade. Accordingly, I’m looking forward to hearing much more from these talented guys in the coming months. Until then, you can stream the whole EP to the fullest down here!

It’s Time For Disco! Luxxury Releases “i wanna be EVERYTHING” Video
Last month, Luxxury dropped some sort of vintage video collage for his latest single “i wanna be EVERYTHING”. This time the LA artist offers a good fusion of high falsettos, funky basslines, and guitar licks that encapsulate the wonders of Disco music. Not quite lyrical nor romantic as his old hit, “What Do Ya Really Want ”, I believe this new song is more focused on the energetic rhythm. In any case, you’ll notice there are references to sweat and sex, just watch this crazy clip below and get your own conclusions. Yet perhaps the most important news is that Luxxury has announced a new studio album and surprising collaborations for 2019, so stay tuned!
