AA Loves: Gino - Shall We Disco?

Shall We Disco? is the perfect mix for the next time you have a spontaneous dance party that lasts exactly 29 minutes and 1 second.

LA based Gino aka Last N!ght has made an instant dance-floor masterpiece by seamlessly blending together bits of danceable classics from Black Kids, Treasure Fingers via Chromeo, Uffie, Daft Punk, Cut Copy, Pony Pony Run Run, Armand Van Helden, and even a bit of Pharell and Ludacris. I mean you really can’t go wrong with names like these, especially if you have a strong cohesive narrative underlying it all, like Gino does.

Notable moments include 10:48 where there’s a mini chord break and an amazing build up to where the orchestral chorus of synths go into overdrive on a fantastic remix of Mr. Oizo’s “Steroids,” the transition at 12:09 into Cut Copy’s “Light and Music” makes you tingle in your pants – the fact that he never breaks into the chorus is perhaps the most tantalizing tease in music I’ve heard in a long time – and of course 15:47 when gods of electronica Daft Punk make a brief but insane ectoplasmic pulsing cameo.

I must offer fair warning, download this mix at your own risk. You may not have legs left after dancing so hard. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

On a side note, I used to hang out with Gino as kid in band and I’ve always been impressed by his ear for music whether we were playing it or listening to it. So I suppose it comes as no surprise that he’s dropping jams like these now.
