Top 10 Disco Chart > May 2017 — ELECTRO WOW
- Dave Gerrard – Love Will Fix It
The favorite Nu Disco label of the great majority is without doubt, Midnight Riot. They have released a brilliant compilation titled ‘Roller Boogie, Vol 2’, which counts with a total of 21 tracks, but the special one is “Love Will Fix It” by Dave Gerrard. This is a banger that incorporates funky filtered loops that will make you dance all night!
- KORT, Jessica Symonds – For You (J Paul Getto Remix)
For this milestone, Tropical Velvet is pleased to welcome back J Paul Getto who delivers a slamming remix of the first ever release on the label, titled “For You”. The iconic vocals from Jessica Symonds (AKA Jessica Wilde) are framed by trademark disco-funk bass, solid beats & an insistent hook creating a fresh and funky re-work for 2017; a classic re-born.
- Hercules & Love Affair – Controller (Tuff City Kids Remix)
“Controller” marks a welcome return to action for Andy Butler’s Hercules & Love Affair project following a two-year break. This time round, the former DFA man is joined by vocalist Faris Badwan (The Horrors), whose weary, emotion-rich vocals backed by strong harmonies, are a perfect foil for Butler’s chunky backing track.
- Alien Disco Sugar – Love Insurance [Strings of Heaven Edit]
Grecian-in-London Alien Disco Sugar returns with a new EP called ‘Feel So Good’, however, the best track here is the Disco re-edit of Sharon Redd’s “Love Insurance”. Once again the Nu-Disco specialist delivers a refreshing version that will hit the dance floor with full force!
- Alien Disco Sugar – Soft Emotion
Given the frequency and volume of his re-edit releases, it would be quite easy to do a six-hour set entirely made up of Alien Disco Sugar‘s reworks. Certainly, the London-based Grecian is one of the edit scene’s more reliable scalpel fiends, providing tasty rubs of both well-known and long-forgotten fare. The shirts-off Disco silliness of “Soft Emotion” is my favorite track on his latest EP entitled ‘Feel Like I Feel’.
- Babert – War (Ivan Jack Remix)
Babert did a fantastic edit of Kano’s 80s hit “It’s A War”. Somehow the track was prohibited to be commercialized on digital music stores, but I think it deserves to be on the charts, due to the ear-pleasing elements that were added to the funky mix. This is pure magic!
- Used Disco – Bad Gir
Massive vibes are included in this release by Hungarian producers Used Disco. On “Bad Girls”, you’ll listen to a groovy sampling of a classic Donna Summer track, and should roll over across the dancefloors all over the world.
- Matt Astle – Dancer
Matt Astle‘s “Dancer” is the latest release on Lupara Records. It’s a driven Disco track with a few vocals and mostly instrumental in nature. A perfect blend of Disco, 80s funk and boogie.
- Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra feat. Arthur Verocai – Vendetta (Al Kent Mix)
The Far Out Monster Disco Orchestra is Far Outs in-house Brazilian disco super group. The projects arrangers are the late, great Azymuth maestro Jose Roberto Bertrami and the legendary Arthur Verocai. Al Kent shows he’s a true rhythmic innovator with this mix.
- ForgottenFunk – The Way You Get Down
Infectious Disco beats will put you in the best mood. Enjoy “The Way You Get Down”, a cool re-edit arranged by ForgottenFunk. Here, the Irish producer reinvents this classic funky gem completely by adding new twists to the original.
Roosevelt Creates An Instant Classic By Merging Disco And Rock
Roosevelt keeps pushing boundaries and fusing genres like Disco and Rock on “Paralyzed,” taken from the recently released album ‘Embrace.‘ One way or another, he has managed to craft an instant classic that defies genre conventions!
For sure, Disco and Rock might sound quite opposite, but when combined, an interesting rhythm is created. On this occasion, Roosevelt seamlessly merges infectious dance beats with the raw/heavy guitar work.
Additionally, it’s impossible not to notice the vibrant visuals that accompany this awesome track. In the music video, shades of grey and pink predominate, creating something literally striking and original.
If you ask me, “Paralyzed” feels like it’s geared more toward being a sing-along anthem than a pure dance tune. Nevertheless, the upbeat melodies make it impossible to resist tapping your foot.
Besides, what sets it apart from the crowd is its ability to evoke a sense of nostalgia while remaining contemporary. Consequently, it’s accessible and appealing to a wide range of listeners.
The art of composing songs is a boundless playground where innovation and creativity know no limits. Clearly, Roosevelt exemplifies this limitless approach with his groundbreaking music.
Stay tuned for more updates on his socials below.

A Must-See Music Video: “It Girl” By Black Queer Artist Sedric Perry
Sedric Perry‘s “It Girl” music video promises a blast of fun! Drawing inspiration from the 1980s aerobics craze, this black queer artist delivers comical visuals that are a must-watch!
Teaming up with NYC label Sundaee Sauce, this new track embodies the spirit of having a good time and the importance of self-assurance. Best of all, it incorporates vintage synthesizers as part of the characteristic Nu Disco sound.
Influences from artists such as Prince, Whitney Houston, and Vapor Wave are clearly evident, with an exceptional guitar riff taking the spotlight. Additionally, there are funky beats in the background that beckon you to dance along.
It seems that Sedric Perry is at that point in life where being super serious just doesn’t cut it, especially when life is already throwing its curveballs. Sometimes, it’s totally cool to embrace your inner goofiness and just be yourself without any apologies. Without a doubt, that’s the message behind “It Girl.”
At the end of the day, bold people often come up with innovative ideas, and the same goes for authentic artists who aren’t afraid to express their vision and creativity.
