Juicy, Silky Moves for Nights

This is a dance music lover's record. Like a sausage lover's pizza, if that pizza was made from house music, electro boogie, techno, and detroit rap. This record feels fresh, without being cheeky, and well schooled without being old hat. Whoever these guys are, I can safely say they have owned their share of records. Not MP3s or burned CDs, but vinyl disks infused with rhythms and melodies spanning decades. Dark Party crafts unabashedly enjoyable dance music that isn't designed for a specific audience or trend setting group of hazed children. Dark Party makes music for themselves and their hungry ears.

There are influences all over this record, but every piece of music is influenced by another piece of sound, event, painting, or strange thing said on the street. To sit here and list off random Dark Party influences would not do the record justice. I will just say that these two guys know their history. The sounds on this record are well organized, thoughtful, and give a middle finger to the current trends in music. After listening to this record it is apparent that the members of Dark Party either hate people under 22, or have grown tired of playing shows for way too many 22 year olds. These sounds aren't time machine, back to the future dusty, but they absorb the tricks of the past and make them sound juicy and alive for ears of today. The record also has a certain urbanity about it. The tunes on this debut sound urgent, and lack any semblance of cheeky irony or suburban gloss. Much of this record would sound at home at a house party in Compton, a parking lot in Detroit, or a basement in Chicago. Geography means something to these guys, and the sounds they chose reference everything from the Chicago disco hustle, LA synth sleaze, and the Detroit steppers groove. If you've ever been on a bus with public high school kids, you'll get this record. If you've ever dance battled Italian and Puerto Rican kids in a Catholic school gymnasium, you'll get this record. If you've ever been arrested for spray painting something, you'll get this record. It's music for car stereos for people who don't own cars. It takes the hustle back from France and places it somewhere between Brooklyn, Baltimore, Chicago and LA. It laughs all the way to the bank, and then withdraws some money for a pair of Cross Colors and a rayon shirt. It's funky like a slice dripping sauce on chocolate cleavage. It's something to dance to.
