Brooklyn-Based Alchemical Disco Re-Ignited The Fire Of Blondie’s Atomic

Published

on

atomic“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.

lyric video kinetic typography

It is almost customary for artists to opt for kinetic typography via lyric videos. Horse Meat Disco use this animation technique also known as moving text so that you can sing along to their Nu-Disco single, “Jump Into The Light”. What’s more, fonts come to life as they evoke emotions. If you’re looking for ideas to embellish your visual project, this music video could be a source of inspiration. Nowadays, it doesn’t matter the low budget for music videos, just with a vivid palette, you can catch the eye of anyone who appreciates your work.

Most importantly, vocals of the legendary Kathy Sledge (Sister Sledge’s lead singer) still sound amazing. It lacks the groovy strings of the classic Disco anthem “He’s The Greatest Dancer”, however, it has the right beats required for maximum enjoyment. “Jump Into The Light” is an ear-pleasing jam that brings back so many good nightlife memories to mind. Not to mention, the delicious funky instrumentation was co-produced by Luke Solomon. Well, these London-based DJs never disappoint with their top-quality tunes.

Galactic Disco is back in style again! One of my favorite singers, Kylie Minogue just premiered her new visuals for “Say Something”. The 15th studio album from the Australian popstar is entitled ‘DISCO’ and will be out in stores on November 6th. In the clip, I believe she plays the role of a cosmic goddess who charms everyone with her super sweet vocals. Add to this, the right amount of trippy electronics that let your imagination fly. Arguably even better are her lyrics which portray a beautiful message of love despite the distance. Like a fine wine, Kylie gets better with age. On a side note, she managed to do this piece of art in the middle of a global pandemic, well, she deserves a special round of applause!

Lyrics

We’re a million miles apart
In a thousand ways
Baby, you can light up the dark
Like a solar-scape
And I can almost feel you coming
And your heartbeat race
Someone, somebody or something
In the choice we make
I, I think about you

Whoah whoah whoah whoah yeah
I can’t help thinkin’ ‘bout you
I’m always thinkin’ ‘bout you
Whoah whoah whoah whoah yeah
S, s, s, say something
Say something
Tell me how you’re feeling

Oh we all got wanderlust
In the darkest place
So we’re going with our heart
Yeah it’s all the rage
Oh we’re just
Just trying to find ourselves
In the storms we chase
Baby in an endless Summer
We can find our way
I, I think about you

Coz love is love, it never ends
Can we all be as one again
Coz love is love, it never ends
Can we all be as one again

Lyrics

Feel buried alive, this city is airtight
Suffocatin’, lonely in the crowds
I’m surrounded by all the screens of their lies
Screamin’ into space to drown them out

I fell down so low, found nowhere to go
But I know you wait for me
You wait for me
So far out of sight, stepped into the white
But I know you wait for me

I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
‘Cause I’ve been hypnotized by the lights
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
Yeah, it’s taken time to realize
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight

So hold me tight, I just wanna fade out
Somewhere we can shut the world away
I’m ready to hide far from the fallouts
They won’t find us in the paradise we’ll make

I fell down so low, found nowhere to go
But I know you wait for me
You wait for me
So far out of sight, stepped into the white
But I know you wait for me

I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
‘Cause I’ve been hypnotized by the lights
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
Yeah, it’s taken time to realize
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight

Free fallin’ from the high
I’m followin’ the voice I know
Free fallin’ from the high

I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
‘Cause I’ve been hypnotized by the lights
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
Yeah, it’s taken time to realize
But I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight
I’m comin’ home, I’m comin’ back down tonight

"Attention", Michael Aguilar Premieres A Disco-Filled Jam!
Queer singer-songwriter Michael Aguilar creates a disco-filled jam for the LGBT community. The feel-good track called “Attention” comes accompanied by his first-ever music video. At a time when the world is suffering due to the pandemic, this new single invites everyone to show off funky dance moves in self-isolation. You can tell he puts a lot of passion for singing, plus, lending a sultry sheen to the whole composition. The 27-year-old artist whose musical heroes are Britney Spears and Dua Lipa is set to drop a debut EP in December. So far, I believe it’s a groundbreaking material that is sure to exceed expectations. A masterful fusion of Pop and Disco that still seem entertaining for radio plays, so stay tuned!

However, visuals portray a different story of a girl playing around a Pump It Up machine. In fact, Director Gary Levesque captured the beauty of this popular arcade game. Plus, it’s impossible to resist to that funky groove. In case you need some tunes for your next quarantine dance party, I think “Be Mine Tonight” is the perfect option.
