Leeds may not be the home of Britain’s humble Disco heritage, but since successively injecting Erick Morillo & Eddie Thoenick’s summer anthem ‘Live Your Life‘ with a little New York infused soul, Dirty Freek is proving closer to building the bridge than the vast majority of his peers. Batting for the heartfelt Disco Bomb imprint for his latest studio endeavour, the Northern producer returns with a firm extension of his Disco House stylings with ‘Pillow Talk’.
Transitioning from a sleek flare of eccentric beats and sample work, ‘Pillow Talk’ ascends into an all-out affair of sexy trumpet leads and infectious bass grooves, marking an essential throwback to the vintage day of American Disco with a sensational 21st century House twist. Where Nu-Disco and its associated peers may be proving Electronic music’s hit-and-miss sub-genre for 2012, Dirty Freek stirs a sound degree of enthusiasm for the relentlessly uplifting energy that this vintage sound scope musters.
