TILTMAG PRESENTS: DISCOT.E.X.MAS
Sshhhh, it’s OK, I have what you need. Let the worries of your time in the sun fade and melt away into the rhythms of this beauty as you spawn into a creature of habit and fall into a dance long forgotten by mind, but engraved in your bones like ancient instruction.
Moullinex new EP is just that sexy! OK so it’s been out since October, we’ve all been hibernating on it! Equally amazing is Xinobi‘s recent remix of Quakers & Mormons ‘New York Town’.
And just because you’re so awesome we’re gonna tell you about their new collaboration “X marks the spot” which they classified ‘Voodoo Disco’ and is filled with an energy that emanates from your speakers, lifts you up to your feet and forces you to get down to the funky vibe.
In other DISCOTEXAS news, Appaloosa have released their new EP Patchwork. Already supported by Rory Phillips, Munk, Punks Jump Up, Cosmonauts, Plastic Plates, Tronik Youth, Shindu, Pharao Black Magic, The Lovely Jonjo, Mighty Mouse, C90s, Malente, Bxentric, Tape To Tape, Jerry Bouthier / JBAG…
In their own words:
“The “appaloosa” is a kind of horse, bred by the Native American Nez Perce tribe in the northwest of America. The breed almost died out, but was saved in the early 20th century.
When I was about 10 years old, I saw an Appaloosa horse galloping along the sidewalk; it belonged to an old hermit who lived in the forest nearby, and the horse had escaped. I watched the horse run away, and I thought, “Wow!”. Since then, this horse has been haunting me. Their coats are pretty amazing, sometimes, you would look at it like at the canvas of an action painting.
Three or four years ago, I lived in Berlin for a few months. There happened to be a piano in my bedroom. I met Shara, who is a transsexual, super great lady. One night, I saw an old friend from Paris, Antek, who was part of Bernadette Corporation and co-authored the book “Reena Spaulings” (which is also the name of a fine art gallery in New York). Antek introduced me to Max. The four of us went to a karaoke on the same night. The next day, Max asked me if I wanted to do a cover of ‘Nikita’ by Elton John, and put out an underground EP of it; he loved the way I had sung it the night before. I was not into the idea.
Max asked me to write a song. I wrote this first song about a shooting star. And Max came up with a melody for it.”
