Like a Virgin, Except Almost 30 Years Later

Uh Oh Disco’s Questions premiered his remix of Madonna’s 1984 single “Like a Virgin” this past Saturday on KCRW (thanks to Valida!) to some pretty positive feedback. If you’re one of the people who thought Madonna couldn’t possibly sound creepy, you might want to guess again, because this one comes out of left field… it really is amazing what a vocoder can do.

New Uh Oh Disco Records Out – Dirty 1200 + New Questions

We know it’s hard to follow the music scene these days. There are new genres popping up nearly every day, and at such a rapid pace, one can feel almost entirely out of touch listening to music that was made available only a week before. That’s why we’ve decided to bring you the freshest of the fresh, hot off the press, so that you don’t have to go hunting for it yourself.

Dirty 1200

Dirty 1200 made his Uh Oh Disco debut last month with his single, “Bedroom Tango,” and since then, he has proven himself to be the John Deer of disco. While most tracks are meant to be danced to, this one feels like it dances on you!

In all seriousness though, Bedroom Tango has enjoyed an enormously hearty reception since its release, and is certainly a groove you won’t want to miss.

Check it out here, and when you simply can’t take it anymore, it’s available to download on Beatport.

Huge halls, empty love, and borderline haunting vocals from the lovely Peony are only a few of the sounds to expect on this unmissable debut. Listen to “Fire Escape” below, and grab it on Beatport this Tuesday!

Dial It Back

Normally Uh Oh Disco’s blog posts are chock full of fire and passion towards ridiculous causes, endless rants, and miles worth of text, defending music that almost always speaks for itself, and doesn’t even need an explanation to back it up in the first place, but today, I’m unable to offer anything more than a comment on a subtly beautiful trend I’ve spotted as of late. What’s the trend? Everything’s going slower….

Is it good, is it bad? I personally think it adds a whole new realm of flavor and grove into the dance music scene that the driving beats of house music were never quite able to tap. It’s not often you’ll find a track that’ll please an entire crowd at once; All too frequently you’ll hear the complaints from hip hop fans that house moves too fast to dance to, and the house fans get upset that hip hop doesn’t move at all, but when you’re playing house rhythms down at 95-105 BPM, well, it’s enough to pry just about everyone’s eyes open a little wider.

The style has got to be something special, if only due to the fact that some of the scene’s greatest producers have quickly adopted it.

See for yourself, and let us know what you think!

Wonderwall Won’t Ever Sound the Same Again

Straight out of the Uh Oh Disco vault, June 1st marked the official release of Questions’ version of Oasis’s coveted Wonderwall. Was it risky? Of course it was. Was it reckless beyond stupidity? Yes indeed. But then, isn’t that what music is all about in the first place? Imagine where we’d be if Skream resigned to the fact that his beats sound like tin cans being mashed against a chalkboard, and gone on to make pop music instead. Where would we be then eh?

So let’s get this straight. The guy remixed a classic. Or rather, he snagged the vocal, and wrote an entirely new tune around it, and though we’ve all come to know the “poorly remixed mainstream track” as almost a genre in and of its own right, Questions’ super fat, yet silky smooth take on Wonderwall simply refuses to fit in.

Don’t believe it? Have a listen:

Questions – “Haggis” Single Out Now on UhOhDisco!

It’s been far too long since we last heard from our very own Questions, but the wait is officially over, and his latest release (entitled “Haggis,” for reasons that are beyond my ability to explain) is proof that the studio gears have all the while been turning.

Having turned a cold shoulder to the poppy, synth driven melodies of his previous works, Haggis’s thick, sample-driven soundscapes are bound to catch a few returning listeners off guard, but the delicate subtleties and attention to detail that first put Questions on the map persist throughout the release, and are undoubtedly enough to enthrall listeners, both old and new.

The release comes with two tracks, the title track, and a B side that’ll give even the purest house music enthusiasts goosebumps. Best of all, for the first seven days following its release, Haggis Single can be downloaded, completely free of charge! Grab it while you still can!

Download full release here.

Or help yourself to the individual A and B sides below.
