Slave to the rhythm

Si je vous dis "Let the music play", vous me repondez Barry White mais on ne va pas parler de lui aujourd'hui.
Trop jeune pour avoir dansé dessus à sa sortie en 1984, je bloquais depuis un certain temps sur la chanson de Shannon et surprise en zappant sur VH1 je tombe sur le clip, qui n'a rien d'exceptionnel mais a motivé ce post.
Il y a quelques morceaux d'electro funk parus entre la fin du disco et le début de la new jack qui restent d'une fraîcheur assez irrésistible comme le titre de Chemise réhabilité par Chromeo sur le mix qui a suivi leur album ultra référencé, qui les a amené a chanter avec Dj Medhi sur son prochain maxi.
On retrouve également cette patte synthétique sur le tout dernier disque de nos amis Chicken Lips, et encore plus chez les sympathiques 33 Hz.

Shannon "Let the music play"

Chemise "She can't love you"

Dj Medhi feat. Chromeo "I am somebody"

Chicken Lips "White dwarf"

33 Hz "Call me up"

A funky post inspired by the lovely Shannon video I saw this morning on Vh1 Classic.
I didn't grow up with that sound but I especially like these synthetic singles that stormed the charts after disco death and before the new jack era.
It is still refreshing and inspires numbers of current artists as you can hear in this selection.

Thanks for that post (and your comment), and for me Chemise was brought back from the dead by the first Culture Club compilation mixed by The Glimmers :)

I totally agree with keepitcomingster ! And the Glimmers kept on using that kind of disco/italo/synth music in the others issues of the Culture Club Series, you should check it out even though it's not always very easy to find in french records stores (vive la FNAC :-( )
