This week Discotexas will presents its first release of 2012. We all know that everything that comes from the Portuguese label is guaranteed to blow you away but this time they have outdone themselves. The newcomers  Jay Lamar & Jesse Oliver are a duo from Helsinki (Finland), who first met at a music production school discovering their common taste in music. The two both had experience producing and remixing, so when they hit the studio together for the first time a house, disco and electro explosion took place. “Diamonda”, is their debut EP which features their first original tracks, ‘Diamonda’ and ‘Opal’.

Diamonda, the premier track, is a proper gem and we’ve fallen in love immediately. The synth melodies walk the pumping line between nu-disco and electro and even some futuristic sounds that could perfectly fit in a 80’s sci- fi movie soundtrack. This track also gives off echoes of Kris Menace. On the other hand, ‘Opal’ is more oriented to the French touch and sound, but equally suitable for a nightride in a Chevelle SS.

The remix pack boasts names such as the likes of Xinobi, Justin Faust and Bright Shades, that will turn so irresistible from the very first second. In comparison to the original work Xinobi has gone for disco thinning the baseline, Faust has opted for a kind of festive version and finally their homemade Bright Shades who have reinforced the synths boosting the 80’s spirit of the original track.

And the freebie ’22’ is pure 80’s love too! Irresistible vibes that will get you in the mood just with the first listen. We can state that these guys have come to stay.
