Me & My Toothbrush – Show Me

I may have found my new favorite Nu Disco act in Me & My Toothbrush, from Zurich Switzerland. Little biographical information is available online but most of what I’ve read describes the act using “they”, and Beatport writes “our long time in-house buddies” in the description of the release. Oh, and one person on Facebook calls them “the kings of Nu Disco”. I digress. I’m here to call attention to a particular track by Me & My Toothbrush which was released in March called “Show Me”. I heard “Show Me” listening to a recent Solidisco mix when I found out they are coming to San Francisco this weekend. Realizing I hadn’t paid much attention to Solidisco lately, and knowing how much I had previously enjoyed their work, I rolled down my windows and blasted the car stereo for some fine House tracks of varying styles. When “Show Me” by Me & My Toothbrush came on it immediately stood out. It’s the perfect fusion between fat bass lines, funk guitar licks, and melodic vocals – I knew I had to have it for my DJ sets. I did some investigating and Me & My Toothbrush are definitely on my radar now, especially since “Show Me” was released as part of a three-track EP by the same name.

If you like Nu Disco and/or funky House music, this is an act you must keep your eyes on. And make sure to grab the whole EP as well as spend some time on Me & My Toothbrush’s SoundCloud page. If you like it let them know!

MMIBTY Interview with Solidisco

Solidisco swung through Boston this weekend as part of their mini New England tour that will take them to casinos, pools, and New York City over the long holiday weekend. Making their debut at Emerald Lounge, we took the opportunity to catch up with the duo from Buffalo. Young, bright, and thirsty are all great descriptors of these kids – check out what they had to say and be sure to keep a look out for the disco beat makers!

MMIBTY: Hey guys, how are you doing, welcome to Boston!

Solidisco: Thanks man it’s great to be here. This is our first time playing in Boston together actually, so we are pretty excited for later on.

MMIBTY: Oh that ‘s awesome, how is this summer shaking up for Solidisco? Club shows, festival gigs – where are you finding yourself the most?

Solidisco: I’d say mostly clubs recently, heading down to New York City to play at Cieolo this Friday and then a pool party at Mohegan Sun on Sunday. That will be fun, we’re pool party DJ’s I guess (laughter).

MMIBTY: Have you noticed an increase interest in in disco bookings lately as the style seems to drawing more and more fans?

Solidisco: Wouldn’t necessarily chalk it up to these venues you wouldn’t expect to go, uh I guess, but I would say it’s more of a result of hard work as us as artists are constantly releasing new work and doing some great collaborations. everyone thought disco was going to make a comeback aftter the Daft Punk album,  but you don’t see a lot of kids trying to record “Get Lucky”, most of them are trying to make “Animals.”

Anjulie Meets Solidisco On the Dancefloor

One of the fastest growing names in the disco house community has to be Solidisco with their fresh, revitalizing twist on classic house. Turning the music world upside down as their sounds appeal to today’s musical trends, it is no surprise that this Brooklyn based duo is gaining popularity at unprecedented speeds. It always helps when you can share the stage with the likes of Diplo and A-Trak (titans in the electronic community). They are jumping into 2013 with two feet forward, releasing their first remix only three days into the new year. Taking on You and I, a track originally produced my old man Benassi, Solidisco provides us with an instant dancefloor hit. It’s kind of just what they do. If you have never heard of them and couldn’t figure out by their name, this track has disco all over it.

2012 In Review: Indie Dance (Nu-Disco)

Yet another huge year in the genre of indie dance as we saw the spread of up-beat love spreading through the festival circuit. Perhaps also the most questionable genre to fall under the realm of Electronic Dance Music as many claim it to be just disco music from the sixties. Stuff that our parents used to listen too.  The music will never gain the popularity of the electro house and trance producers, but to those who love it, there isn’t anything better. When the sun is at its’ highest during the summer months, there isn’t anything better than laying by a pool and crushing RAC’s  Hollywood. Tracks like Those Days are perfect for grinding and bumping in the club while Doses and Mimosas is what I turn on in the morning after the long night. The music is so versatile and unique, but most importantly it makes you smile. Love the music you listen and you will be a happier person. Enjoy some of my favorite tracks from this past year and I really encourage you to download the pack for those summer days that are hopefully coming soon!
