The latest release out of DJ Dan's InStereo Recordings is every disco fan's wet dream, and might convert some fervent hip hop-only fans to like the genre of music as well. The American house music pioneer and label head has paired up with the San Francisco-based production duo Whitenoize on "Engine No. 9," a groovy disco track ready to blow the roof off just in time for Miami next month. And you guessed it: with a sample of Black Sheep's "The Choice is Yours," this track is retro, catchy, nostalgic and fresh all in one. From a producer who has seen the industry through since its infancy, pairing up with a duo such as this seems like a figurative anointment, a promising vehicle for new and innovative disco coming from the next generation through the lens of one of its originators. And it's not like we didn't already feel that way about Whitenoize after discovering their Soundcloud a few years back, but it's exciting to see artists like this link up.
