The 7 Best Nu Disco / Disco Tracks On Beatport You May Have Missed
Rick Sanders feat. Black Aura – Night Breeze [Smiley Fingers]
Italian talent Rick Sanders teams up with stunning soul vocalist Black Aura for “Night Breeze.” With the artist’s fantastic voice sitting perfectly on top of a classic disco groove with rich piano chords and a rolling funk guitar riff, this track has that extra punch to make you move. Don’t miss it!
The Funk Hunters x CMC & Silenta – Tribute (La Felix Remix) [Westwood Recordings]
Not sure what the samples are on this absolute funk groover, but it stuck in my mind from the first play. La Felix has given “Tribute” the extra twist and form it needs to work in both your living room and soon in your local club. Be sure to keep an ear out for the wild synth solo towards the end. It will take you straight to the ’80s!
Westcoast Goddess – The Devil in Mr. Holmes (The Erotic Soul) [Delusions of Grandeur]
Berlin-based artist Westcoast Goddess delivers sun-soaked vibes with “The Devil in Mr. Holmes,” a transportive tune that will light up any room and have you thinking of warmer places. I wouldn’t expect any lower quality from the Delusions of Grandeur label anyway. Hats off to Jimpster for the signing!
Quiroga – Martinica Feelings (Whodamanny Interpretation) [Hell Yeah Recordings]
This piece of disco pleasure touches some Italo territories, and that rings my bell straight away! You don’t need much, some synth work, a funky bassline, and a repeated vocal hook… oh, and a lovely saxophone riff certainly wouldn’t do the track any harm. Big love and big grooves all around on this one!
Captain Sky – Saturday Night Move Ease [Past Due Records]
“Saturday Night Move Ease,” says Daryl Cameron (AKA Captain Sky), and we’re inclined to believe him. Straight from 1978, this absolute gem sees the light of day again to remind us what a golden disco record sounds like. Classic, original disco with a hype whistle, some bongos, guitar riffs, and a high-flying synth for maximum boogie vibes.
Risk Assessment – One More [Midnight Riot]
Risk Assessment has been on my radar for a while now. So much talent in an artist we rarely see. The London based producer can easily vary his sound, from house to disco to deep and jackin grooves. On his disco tip with “One More,” the UK artists samples Chic for a get-down groover with a modern touch. This one may very well remain in my playlist forever.
Reel People feat. Speech – I Never Knew [Reel People Music]
I wasn’t aware of Speech before this track, but after hearing “I Never Knew,” I will make sure not to miss any of his future works! Teaming up with London’s well-established music collective, Reel People, this track is a beautiful hybrid of nu-funk and soul with disco touches all over.
