Disco Fries thrill with groovy sophomore EP [Exclusive]
New York-based duo Disco Fries have solidified their place in the dance music community over the past few years with consistent releases and well-polished, dance floor-ready production.
2017 has been highlighted by a No. 1 Hype Machine spot with their remix of Avicii‘s “Without You” and a No. 2 spot on the popular charts with their original “Side by Side.” In addition to these accomplishments, they’ve continued their monthly hour-long Liftoff Radio episodes and released a series of stellar remixes like their rendition of Rita Ora‘s “Your Song” and Selena Gomez‘s “Fetish.” Somewhere in the midst of their busy schedule, Nick Ditri and Danny Danger found time to finalize more than two years worth of work into their sophomore EP, DF, which is out Dec. 1 on Enhanced Music.
Eight-track DF is a thrilling collection of work that showcases the breadth of Disco Fries’ music — from the funky to the heartfelt. They’ve worked with an array of vocalists for the EP including Daisy Guttridge, Great Good Fine Ok, Jared Lee, Shy Martin and more. The EP is largely vocal-centric, letting the respective singer(s) take center stage for songs like emotion-packed “Reckless” and funky “Love Tonight.” Groovy beats support the backbone of the songs throughout the EP, along with the incorporation of instruments. “Reconnected,” for example, is accented by bright, brassy horns throughout, including a funky trumpet solo for the lead-out.
“Over 2 years of dozens of ideas, some scrapped, some transformed, sometimes creatively stuck, life and artistic growth, reinvention, highs and lows, but most importantly, an evolution… we bring you DF,” the duo shared in a Nov. 14 Facebook post.
To celebrate the EP’s release, the duo are hosting a release party at Mercury Lounge in New York on Friday, Dec. 15. Tickets are available here.
