It’s hard to not draw a comparison between disco in the ’70′s and the explosion of EDM that we are seeing now. Both genres have the unique power to bring people together with the unified goal of doing a little dance, making a little love, and getting down tonight. Packed clubs across the U.S. and Europe show the revitalized spirit of letting loose on the dance-floor as a way to escape the monotony our respective 9 to 5′s.
For these reasons, I am proud to present the first installment of the Techibeats exclusive “Grout Tapes – In the Groove”. Every week we will be bringing you a pack of the funkiest nu-disco, groove tracks on the web for your listening pleasure.
The songs this week range from covers of classic funk, R&B and hip-hop tracks, groovy remixes of electronic staples and original productions by the rising stars of this stellar genre of EDM. With bright, airy synths, catchy lyrics and toe-tappin’, head bobbin’ bass, every track in the Grout Tapes is perfect for a day on the beach, at the pool, cruising with the windows down or anytime you’re ready to “Get Down On It”. So hit play and get ready to ride the bassline into Funkytown. Be sure to check out the rest of the tracks after the bump!
