JUSTIN FAUST – DISCO CUTS EP – VOL. II
I’ve always appreciated the production value of Justin Faust. He knows how to put together a tasteful vibe of any genre – from any of his remixes to his growing library of originals – this Disco release on Nurvous Records sets an even higher precedence for things to come!
Casino Royale (Original Mix) opens the dance floor with a game show like trumpet driven fanfare. A sexy throwback to velvet furniture and corduroy everything. The groove would fit perfectly on the Vegas Strip as Danny Ocean and his 11 thieves rip off their next hit.
Bird Of Paradise (Original Mix) pushes the classy lounge textures even further. This track keeps a steady fretless bassline that is sure to get the room moving when it comes through the subs. Although it lacks any steel drum, the track has an exotic vacation feel to it. Again, very tasteful and upscale – but accessible.
Cuba (Original Mix) is the final track on this EP. It reminds me of the new Todd Terje releases – funky and clean. The mix would fit seamlessly in a street festival or deep down in a disco. This tune has a bit more oomph to the low end of it, so I can see this picking up commercially a bit more.
All in all – a great notch in the belt of Justin Faust. I can always appreciate a soulful release like this, swimming along in a world of brostep and TRVP. Looking forward to seeing how everyone else loves this EP, too.
