fm attack.


vancouver-based shawn ward's disco outfit fm attack only surfaced on the scene a few months ago and just delivered an epic full-length album named 'dreamatic', subtitled "an epic journey into 80's electro, synth-pop and nu disco". that's pretty spot-on, although this lacks the euphoria i have encountered listening to the album and i can't remember the last time so many (disco-loving) people messaged me about a release, telling me that i must check it out immediately.

and actually i had a hard time choosing a particular track for the blog at all, as there is clearly a lot of love, passion for synthesizers and obvious talent dripping from all of the nine tracks on the album. finally i decided to go with 'sleepless nights' which is an italo-disco flavoured dream of a track featuring everything we love here at discodust: catchy melodies, lovely chords and of course vocoders! but hear for yourself as we strike back with another premiere!

fm attack - sleepless nights

but seriously, you should listen to the entire album, released on tonite records and available on junodownload and itunes. don't just always talk about loving the music, buy the album and show fm attack some love. also coming up is his remix for the new grum single 'heartbeats' which should be on here early next week!

Bout time you posted this ;) FM Attack's entire album is great, and I love the vocals (samples or original?)

He somehow manages to sound unique in the whole sea of 'nu disco' acts (might be ironic seeing as we're considered one of those!)
