Remember that “Stickin” track? Born and raised in Miami, Florida, SonicC started producing at the age of 16 when he wanted to make exclusive remixes for djing, he ended up becoming addicted to creating music and started buying VST’s, Monitors, and a Midi controller. Influenced greatly by his Latin roots he also draws inspiration from Hip Hop and Disco. At the young age of 17 SonicC is seeing his work being played by the likes of Laidback Luke, Diplo, Crookers, Annie Mac and other top djs around the globe. This is the boy to watch in 2009, sure to be a big year for SonicC.
Here’s a new bootleg from him Donna Summer – Bad Girls (SonicC Bootleg Edit)
In a time when the word “disco” is overused and misused to describe a whole lot of up and coming bands, it has become harder to find the “real thing” in this ocean of pretenders. Australian trio The Swiss, however, are a legit live disco band whose existence is based entirely on flavour and good sounds rather than attitude and nice gears. For the band, 2010 is a year of new beginnings. They have parted ways with Really Real Records and are now part of the Modular family. They join the ranks of other hyped artists such as Cut/Copy, The Presets or Ladyhawke, for whom they produced a brilliant remix that you can listen to just below…
The Swiss are cool. With their crisp and snappy drums that cause pregnancies, quicksand lazer-sludge bass, dizzy pops and flourishes, melody rays and synthesised strings that glide on the thermal currents of life, this is what real disco did/does/should sound like. It’s smooth and catchy, chilled, but upbeat and most of all, danceworthy.
After working in the studio with Australian producer / songwriter Donnie Sloan (from Empire Of The Sun), the new EP Bubble Bath will be released on January 29th but you can pre-order the vinyl @ Modular. The single comes with remixes from Tensnake and Knightlife ensuring a sweaty night on the dancefloor time after time.
