Nang golden-child Sare Havlicek and Bostonian Chaz Bronz make up the menacingly titled "Transatlantic Disco Alliance". No, it is not a military organization designed to perpetuate neo-imperialst ideals… it's a big ol' love-in for 80's tinged soulful disco tunes.
Lead track "Too Late" is a cover version from 80's UK soulster Junior Giscombe. Curtis Black does a great job re-imagining Juniors vocals and Sare and Chaz keep the synths big and soulful. Next up is the club bouncer "Cosmic Furnace". Stabby moogs doubled with electric bass and a progressive builder of a tune. Happiness On A Leash (surely not a track about marriage ;-) ) is all about the lead lines, darting melodies all set against a backdrop that sounds like it came from a Bill Sharpe EP in 1982.
On the remix trip we have UK based James Bright who houses things up a notch for the dance floor. Japanese based Keita Sano gets a tad jazzy and a tad funky with his Rhodes and funk bass driven diversion. As is usually the case with us at Nang we've overloaded the package with the usual instrumentals and dubs too…
