BOTNEK, “Days Of Disco”
“Days Of Disco” is an irresistible dance floor filler from my fellow Canadians, the Nova Scotia duo Botnek, who have caught Tiësto’s ear for release via Musical Freedom. Though the song sings “Viva the last days of disco”, it is a celebration of disco and dance music. “Days Of Disco” is full of hooks, from the classic house riffing to a melody that may make you recall “Last Night A DJ Saved My Life”, though the rhythm is more uptempo rather than funky. Botnek have found a great groove with this record, and while the buzzing synth hook (which sounds like a phone dialing – maybe a sample from the opening of Carol Douglas’ disco classic “Doctor’s Orders”?) may be a touch grating, it’s also one of the elements of the song that is highly memorable. “Days Of Disco” makes for easy spinning in dance clubs, so add it to your Dance Dance Dance playlist using the Spotify link above.
