MICHAEL MEDRANO and FUNK LeBLANC, “Do Your Thing” (Dance Floor version)
Michael Medrano, gradually becoming everyone’s favourite disco dad, is channeling 70’s disco at its best (take it from someone who lived through that era), and he might have a corner on that market in the indie US scene. Taking some cues from artists like The Knocks and Sofi Tukker, “Do Your Thing” in its dance floor version with Funk LeBlanc, is a joyous butt-shaking celebration of you being you wherever you want to just be you. A dance floor in a club is always a safe and welcoming environment for exactly this, and Michael’s R&B-flavoured graceful tones have a field day with “Do Your Thing”. It’s a great follow-up to recent singles “i don’t wanna talk about love” (currently Top 5 on my personal chart) and “Personal Heaven”.
