New from Lou Teti this week is a nice little remix package of his single, “Shake”. With remixes by Drop Out Orchestra, Toby Tobias, JKriv and Deep&Disco…. there is surely something for everyone.

Nicely nestled between nu-disco, cosmic-dance and slomo deep-disco, Lou Teti’s tunes are the definition of danceable. His label, ‘Tigers on a Leash’ (TOAL) out of Brooklyn, New York, has seen an all-star list of collaborators including Cassian, Drop Out Orchestra, Toomy Disco, Mario Basanov, Max Essa, Matthew Kyle and JKriv. Lou Teti’s original track, and a personal favorite of mine, “Talk About It” saw support from nu-disco main man himself, The Magician, as part of Magic Tape Seventeen a few months back.

First on the EP, Lou Teti’s original track “Shake” is a low-slung, spaced out tune that rides along at a cool 110bpm with a Balearic  build-up around a simple organic bass. Chill, cosmic…. I close my eyes and suddenly I’m sunbathing on Mars. Definitely diggin’ this one.

Toby Tobias delivers a deeper, cosmic remix that plays  heavily on echoing synths and warbley, cosmic sounds…. while Drop Out Orchestra slow things down with a very sunny indie-dance tune.

My favorite on the EP is most definitely JKrivs funked out version. This gems starts off strong with a housier beat than the original with a heavy dose of funky guitar that lead up to a very ‘psycho-killer’ bassline. Eventually you’re handed a funky cosmic synth with some killer disco groove and your mind is officially blown. Not to mention that seriously rad organ solo near the end that leads to a delightful explosion of funk.  Oh yes….. very nice, indeed!
