Trademarking Contemporary Summer Sounds: DATABOY’s Summer Now EP Teaser

Even though the first time I heard them it was the latter part of Winter at the start of ’11, the Austin TX duo of Cameron and Adam, aka DATABOY, are trademarking contemporary summer sounds.

“Just Once” was MY summer jam of 2011, reaching #1 on my chart in August and ranking #4 on my year end chart.  And this year it can be your summer jam too, thanks to the boys’ juicy teaser of an EP called Summer Now.  It’s released in anticipation of what is certain to be a long-awaited killer of an album, Dreams Are Gold, in June, and follows on the heels of the excellent single with Rune RK, “Memorize Me”.

You won’t find “Just Once” in its original version here, but you’ll get it in the Audien Summer radio mix, plus in a clever pairing – albeit with a song that I don’t even like – Rihanna’s “You Da One”.  But I like this mashup, it flows along just beautifully, sounding simple and seamless, so the duo know their craft quite well.  So to the beach we go with some inviting “Lotion”, then shakin’ it like an “8-Ball” with more clever wordplay.  

But best of all is one helluva big tease called “Sweat Part 1”, which modernizes the classic electro sound created by the likes of Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte with songs like Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”, and Moroder’s own “From Here To Eternity” and “Chase”. Right now, “Sweat Part 1” clocks in at a whopping 1:38 – and surely that’s not all?  I’ll gladly take parts 2, 3 and 4!  “Sweat” could end up being as classic summer DATABOY as “Just Once”.

To hear more, of course, Dreams Are Gold will be just around the corner.  Can’t wait!!  In the meantime, download Summer Now from the DATABOY website and listen to it on Soundcloud below.

  1. […] Texas duo of Cameron Maxwell and Adam Bailey continued to win me over recently when I wrote about  their free Summer Now EP, and their song “Lotion” in particular is on repeat in my head as I write.  But today […]
