I’m not a dancer…but I do dance, and the latest from the electronic/disco/house duo, Thrill Kill, will definitely make you boogie.
Thrill Kill is the collaborative effort of American Vocalist John Webb and Polish Producer PiMO. The duo met while working on Modfunk’s 2008 release Emofunk, which featured Webb, PiMO, Philippe Zdar (Cassius), and French producer Demon.
Thrill Kill’s sound is a combination of house, disco, and nuwave, that produces a ultra chic sound…and is the perfect addition to any dance party playlist. If I had to compare them to another artist or band, Chromeo comes to mind the most. The duo recently released two singles Night Skys and Way That You Move, along with numerous remixes from the likes of German artist Vincent Fries, Polish artists Pol Rax, Invisible Stroke, and more.
For more Thrill Kill, check out their facebook page and follow them on twitter. More importantly, head on over to their soundcloud page, where you can listen to and download tunes (my personal favorite is Night Skys, but they’re all worth a listen).
MNDR is an electronic duo based in NYC, consisting of Amanda Warner and Peter Wade.
I first heard MNDR on one of the Hype Machine radio shows (November 2009), but then I kinda forgot about ’em. But if you’re a constant visitor to sites like Hypem and Elbows like me, you probably noticed the add for a free download of MNDR’s Cut Me Out (grab it here).
Right away my memory was refreshed and i’ve been listening to MNDR tracks all day. Below are a few favorites of mine, but be sure to head on over to MNDR’s site and check out more.
