DISCO HOUSE / FUNK / SOUL / ELECTRONIC / DANCE
The L.A.-by-way-of-Denmark-and-San Francisco duo of Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise make music called "daytime disco," meaning they use many of discos well-known tropes like funky basslines, four-on-the-floor rhythms, Latin percussion, and glittery choruses, but it's a more relaxed and peaceful sound they produce.
Their Dj sets are well known for entrancing crowds with these laid-back disco grooves. Expect tons of bubbling synths, interlocking guitars, and dusty percussion fills; then mix them all together into a tropical cocktail that will knock you into a coma after your first few sips.
Musically they can take you on a journey where Steely Dan is remixed by Larry Levan; Donna Summer is drunk on cough syrup, and Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" is gently plucked from the country and gets you slow dancing to a beautiful end-of-the-night jam. Throughout the night this duo can also turn up the heat, with pumping basslines, spunky - midtempo electric boogie, and songs that sounds something like the Eagles jamming with Chic.
