The boys of 33Hz are back from the beach, and this time, they are ready for sin.
At least that's the story behind 33Hz's new single, "Nightspot", a tale of bacchanalian longing set in the midst of a short visit to a friend outside of New York. But sometimes lounging just ain’t enough, and it's time to find that after-hours club on the shady east-side of town packed with people far too strange to come out in the daylight.
Produced by Ming (of Ming & FS), "Nightspot" is a straight up electro-disco number that places 33hZ squarely back on the dance floor at Odyssey 2001…or more like Odyssey 2011. Mixing classic NYC "classy" disco with a touch of French house and a pinch of R&B, "Nightspot" is a perfect soundtrack to a pre-party, or the evening's eventual peak, or the woozy 4am after-party.
The 12” release features a stripped down disco dub remix from disco dancefloor darlings Beg To Differ (Nick Chacona & Roy Dank of Wurst Music). The b-side is an Electro-fied rework of the 33Hz song “Stephanie All Night” by Ulysses (Throne Of Blood, Wurst).
The Extended Digital EP features remixes from Ming (Hood Famous). Eli Escobar (Tiki Disco/Plant/Dither Down), Walker & Royce (Nurvous), Galactic Classics (Dither Down) and blog darlings The Soundmen.
A decade after the Junkyard sounds of Ming+FS dominated turntablism, Ming is now bringing a fresh, new perspective to electro house. The New Yorker just started his own label, Hood Famous, and has recently released official remixes for the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Lee “Scratch” Perry and the Black Eyed Peas, among others.
NYC’s 33Hz released their first LP in 2005. Featuring the tracks “Crazy All the Time”, “Hot Flashes”, and “Digital Lover” the group was soon able to count artists such as Daft Punk and Architecture in Helsinki as fans, and word of their unique classy-disco sound quickly spread throughout the U.S. and France.
Dither Down is a new label headed up by Tim Wagner of 33Hz and DJ Chicus of the reggae label, Redbud Records. Blending their love of Indie Pop with Disco, Dub, 80s electro and House, Dither Down releases songs by up and coming New York artists and pairs them with the best new remixers from around the world.
Since their 2005 self-titled debut, New York's 33Hz has been at the forefront of mixing electronic music and classic songwriting, with the brave mission of modernizing classy disco and smooth Debarge-era soul.
