SATIN JACKETS and NIYA WELLS, “Primordial”
German producer Satin Jackets wants to make you sway your night out away to European-flavoured nu disco with “Primordial”, featuring a slick and classic vocal by American singer Niya Wells. This is sophisticated, soulful dance music that seems to marry many dance styles together, including some that I grew up with (I age myself yet again). The sounds of the Philadelphia International era of the 70’s come to mind quickly, but more immediately would be the style of European female vocal groups like Silver Convention (“Fly Robin Fly”). You see, overseas, disco never went away after 1979 unlike in North America, and Satin Jackets is clearly out to make it fresh-sounding once again. Add “Primordial” to your Nu European Disco playlist using the Spotify link above (for original or extended versions).
