André VII – Discoteca Clandestina (Bufi Remix)

September 6

This nu disco jam floored me from the minute I heard it. Mexico’s Bufi has gotten some love from us here before and his Little Dragon remix is a fave too, but he has completely outdone himself with his remix of his countryman André VII. 2012 in some ways has been the year of the bleeps and the bloops, and Bufi slathers the track in fun warbly synth sounds, yelps, and sultry gasps about Discoteca.

The single comes out next week so you’ll have to wait a week to pick up a copy, and when you do make sure and grab Bottin’s similarly excellent Italo-style treatment of the same.

I can remember the first time I ever heard “Dancer” by Gino Soccio. It a disco epiphany that won’t leave my mind anytime soon; my brain completely melted beneath the swelling builds that lead up to belting vocals that I feel directly led to the existence of modern-day disco bands like Escort. In a word: Gino Soccio is a master.

“Michael” by Bufi & La Royale gives me a lot of the same feelings, except the output of the build is completely different. While there aren’t any vocals really threading the track, the punchy instrumentals are there to take you on a ride, where the vehicle is a terrific four-by-four beat inspired by GS himself.

Listen, and groove.
