The Disco Fries – Murika EP
It looks like The Disco Fries have been sitting on a past single that they weren’t quite finished with yet. The NYC-based duo offered a free version of “Murika” as a giveaway back in early 2013, but have since muscled up a three-track EP with Liftoff Recordings to finish the job. The EP manages to embrace a balanced mix of progressive and electro themes, exemplified by the original’s vocoded, human-like lead synth and harmonious breaks and builds. The second track calls on electronic music pioneer Tommie Sunshine and fellow NYC natives Live City, who remix “Murika’s” main progression into a stream of pumping, hard-hitting plucks. The Disco Fries split the last track, “Crank This” with the diversified ear of Aylen, who construct a crunchy and rhythmically choppy lead that shifts into a trap-infused outro.
