Get to know @Kantormusic with hard-hitting, melodic and futuristic “Bodies” with vocalist #Rochee

KANTOR and ROCHEE, “Bodies”

Many of you already know Philadelphia’s Greg Kantor as producer/DJ 5 And A Dime, who I’ve written about before in these blog pages.  He’s put 5 And A Dime into the past and kickstarted a project under his own last name which came to life a few weeks ago in a live performance in NYC.  The new song is “Bodies”, and it’s everything melodic and passionate about hard-hitting futuristic-sounding dance music that you can enjoy.  “Bodies” also features NYC Rochee in a very different setting from when we last heard him (Otto Botté’s spicy Latin-flavoured 2017 release “Rocola De Verano”).  Its complexities are heightened when you watch the live performance of it below.  With obvious inspiration from Dance Dance Revolution, Kantor has created live performance technology he called The Grid, which definitely brings a new dimension to a DJ/producer’s performance.  Check it out below and add “Bodies” to your Meet The Future dance playlist using the Spotify link above.

Nightlife’s swingin’ with “Rocola De Verano” by #OttoBotte featuring #Rochee

OTTO BOTTÉ featuring ROCHEE, “Rocola De Verano”

I’m not sure what the title of “Rocola De Verano” is supposed to reference, but the debut single by Grammy-nominated Colombia-bred NYC-based producer Otto Botté just sings NYC swingin’ nightlife.  It’s a jazzy, effortless slice of Latin-spiced electronica featuring charming and easy-going vocals by NYC-based singer Rochee that totally fits the groove.  Otto has had a varied history of both Latin and EDM productions, even working with the likes of Robin Schulz recently, and the influences all come to fruition in “Rocola”.  It’s one sophisticated party unto itself, recalling to me the slick and fun of fellow NYC-er August Darnell’s 70’s and 80’s acts Dr. Buzzard’s Original “Savannah” Band and Kid Creole & The Coconuts.  “Rocola” nails that vibe – also featuring Grammy-winning trombonist Frank Cohen – and wins big time!
