We heart Chromatics

Nov 25 2007


It’s sunday and we need to relax a little bit over here at Discobelle HQ, last night we were absolutely floored by a great set from the fine gentlemen in The Glass (check their mix for us here). What a show, both Dominique and Glen showed off some amazing Serato skills. Anyway, is there a better way to unwind than provide you with some excellent music?

Chromatics have been blogged about before and they deserve all the hype. Best described as slow haunting neodisco with sparse arrangements and influences from italo, which makes this perfect for sundays at home. “In The City” has previously been featured on the “After Dark” compilation (released by our friend Mike Simonetti and his label Italians Do It Better) is one beautiful, hypnotic discosoul track with sweeping synths and whispered vocals. On the flip of the “In The City” 12inch we find their cover of the Bruce Springsteen track “I’m On Fire” and it’s currently one of our faves here at the Discobelle office. If you dig this then check out their recently released CD “Night Drive” which is a fitting title when you consider their music.
