At first I wondered, where did this DJ, AronChupa, come from?! But his song reminded me of a track called, “Albatraoz” by a Swedish group also called Albatraoz. So it would only make sense that AronChupa was a part of that Swedish group and now has his own track called “I’m an Albatraoz.” I have to say though, I definitely prefer the AronChupa track. His sister, Nora Ekberg, provides the vocals and it is just addictive. That intro is too awesome and just listening to it makes you feel like a boss or rather an Albatraoz. I can’t wait to see what he releases next. Have a listen above!
This new track from Brooklyn duo, The Golden Pony sounds a bit strange at first, but as you continue to listen to “Filthy Lover“, well, you start to like it. It’s funky, crazy and cool all at once. Who said disco was dead? These guys have an interesting creative process and they shared how the song came about:
After creating the music for “Filthy Lover”, we thought a Chanty/Cheerleader kind of vocal would work nice, like in that 80’s track that goes ‘Hey Mickey your so fine you blow my mind.’ To flush the idea out we tried recording our own vocals and pitching them way up, which ended up sounding like a mix between a little kid and a Transvestite. We thought this worked nicely in a weird way, so that we left them in!
