i was recently told that this blog should not be called 'discodust' as it has nothing to do with disco at all. besides the fact that this is just wrong as there are tons of disco-influenced music on here and most of nowadays music wouldn't even exist if it wasn't for 'disco' back then, it definitely made me want to feature much more 'original' disco material. luckily, i received a friend request from romeo erotic the other day and they definitely make some of the most wonderful disco remixes (some might call them 'edits') around.
los angeles-based romeo erotic are sean k who has been a dj for 12 years and tony adams who has been in and out of bands all his life. they are heavily into disco, boogie, funk, cholas, lowriders, c-walking, ghostriders, so basically all the kind of cool stuff we average guys don't know shit about. they hooked me up with their 3 latest disco remixes where they get busy on material by starpoint, gary low and the bar-kays. do you know the feeling when you listen to music that leaves you speechless and all of a sudden, every other kind of music feels so insignificant and meaningless to you? that's what i felt like when i heard the starpoint remix. join in right here, all tracks are in 320 kbps:
starpoint - wanting you (romeo erotic remix)
gary low - you are a danger (romeo erotic remix)
the bar-kays - do it (romeo erotic remix)
for more of their remixes, visit our friends from missingtoof. romeo erotic are also working on a mix featuring strictly disco material with top-notch mixing as well as improvised parts by themselves on the mpc 3000, electribe, kaospad, juno 60 and a bunch of vintage analog gear. you'll hear it first on discodust and i just can't wait for it.
show romeo erotic some well-deserved myspace love and watch out for discodust diving deeper into vintage disco sounds in the near future.
