Welcome welcome welcome to another summerfied edition of That New Nu! The time has never been better for putting these jams on during a pool party or afternoon with some brews in the park to make your friends throw their hands in the air. It’s stifling hot, so let’s dive into some cool nu disco! • Zimmer isn’t always coming out with new music but when he does it’s cream of the crop. His latest original is called ‘Escape’ and with the gracious vocals of Emilie Adams on board, it really is the complete package. Authentic, building piano riffs set the tone will Adams croons her way down to your soul. All this just sets up an understated yet funked out hook to get bodies moving. • I take issue with Naxsy‘s branding his name/look/designs seem like a relic of the years of dubstep past. However, I will NEVER take issue with his productions. At least as long as they’re this fiery, the original ‘Down Like That’ is hypnotic and just about the best quality of tropical house you’re likely to find. Best of all he’s giving away tons of his tunes right now so go grab a DL! Hopefully The Twelves’ recent streak keeps up and we can enshrine these godfathers where they belong. • The Twelves have been making nu disco forever, but with a wildly unpredictable production schedule I feel like they’ve fallen by the wayside even with the current disco renaissance. Well hopefully their recent streak keeps up and we can enshrine these godfathers where they belong. Because with productions like this remix of ‘It’s Not Over’ they are certainly ready to set some parties off. • LeMarquis and Fab team up on a remix of ‘The Magic Key’ this week to some spectacular results. It’s all the bouncy goodness you look for in disco productions and sets off the original in perfect coordination. But hang in there because this thing breaks down several times throughout the pay into some seriously nasty future beats. Playing smart like this is often how disco artists creep onto the world stage. • Basic Tape has been making good waves and great vibes of late, and his latest remix of ‘King’ is no exception. It’s not stealing the show any time soon, but a tuned ear will grab right on to the complex production and recognize the smart moves of a producer who doesn’t need to overpower his remixes. Playing smart like this is often how disco artists creep onto the world stage. That’s it for this week, thanks for tuning in. As always I’m constantly curating more music to my SoundCloud than I post, so go check it out! And if I missed anything crucial this week, be sure to let me know, I’m always in the mood for more disco.
