I’M finally back after my somewhat debaucherous leave of absence, and to make up for leaving you all without your succulent fill of house music, I’m serving you up an absolute banger today.
This one, by Norwegian duo ‘Lemaitre’ and featuring the beautiful vocals of ‘Jennie A’ (or Abrahamson for when you inevitably look her up)’ is set to be a major force for the summer. With its funky trumpets (f*ck yeah, trumpets are back bitches), simple bassline and plinky piano riffs, it really does have all the ingredients to make a true summer 2015 hit.
The song works well as a stand-alone piece of music in all honesty, as a welcome return to including properly funky undertones in Nu Disco, and is a pretty strong statement of intent from Lemaitre. They’re hardly new boys, but this track has really caught the attention thanks to the very welcome addition of Jennie’s silky vocals, instilling a pretty strong sense of ‘Gatsby-esque’ lavishness, whilst not distorting the song into a gimmick.
Overall, the sun is shining, summer has FINALLY showed back up, and this is the track to get fucked up to – go forth and be chilled.
