It's a short week for me this week, and I'm not going to lie, I was planning on taking i easy at work – no luck there so instead i've been chilling on the train with some of my favourite house music and in particular an old playlist from about three years ago that takes in a ton of "disco" tinged tracks by the likes of Metro Area, Kerrier district and today’s choice:
Jersey Devil Social club – Italo Bassline
Italo Bassline by JDSC is pretty much exactly what you expect, a drum machine laden 80's proto-house work out, think Kano and Man Parrish and you're nearly there.
The track starts out simple enough, drums, oodles of reverb, a big fat chunky bassline that is as funny as it is catchy, and as camp as it is cutting edge and like most italo disco dosen't rally go many places other than grooving along..and there isn't much to say past that.
I'm a big fan of Morgan Geist, Metro Area was one of my favourite all time Dance Albums, and some of his remix work for artists like Hot Toddy never leave my ear-buds so i'm kind of surprised it's taken me so long to get around to blogging the Jersey Devil Social Club.
