Too Slow to Disco presents...The Sunset Manifesto out 4th December 2020 via How Do You Are?
Now on its 8th full-length release, the Too Slow to Disco compilation series has gone from strength to strength since first appearing in 2013. Led by Berlin’s celebrated crate digger DJ Supermarkt (Marcus Liesenfeld), the series’ original mission was to unearth AOR/MOR lost gems from the 1970s and 80s. Threads were followed, vaults eventually opened, all manner of glories remastered from tape and shared. And the series’ two collections of all-female AOR and disco (The Ladies of Too Slow to Disco 1 + 2) have also rightly been lauded everywhere from the New York Times to Billboard and the Guardian, for the light they’ve shone on passed over soul and disco classics by women.
Now, it's time to bring the party back tonightclubs, hotel bars andliving rooms everywhere...
Have you ever felt so wistful for the dance floor? Have you ever been so in need of getting your personal shimmy on? Not to worry – Team Too Slow To Disco has your back. We present: The Sunset Manifesto. Sixteen ways to party wherever you are right now. Sixteen ways to add effortless chic to your: lockdown kitchen disco / home-office yoga studio / commute to the living room. All previously unreleased and exclusive only to this beautifully-crafted compilation.
Their intention? To bring you a globe-trotting playlist of some of the most sophisticated, adult-orientated and dance-inducing pop music from today’s finest exponents of that Too Slow to Disco sound. And like a good detective about to crack a big case, DJ Supermarkt has been tailing these acts for quite a while now.
It’s an eclectic gang, from Westcoast USA to Norway via a hundred (14) places in between – but with a shared golden thread. That warm sonic palette that escaped from Laurel Canyon folkies and LA session gods is there, remade by a contemporary electronic sensibility. As acts they’re all touched by that lazy, daytime disco or Balearic style.
After a trip to ‘Hotel Sorriso’ from Netherlands’ finest exponents Kraak & Smaak and a Poolside wistful-disco hang with Turbotito (ex- of Poolside) and his ‘Heart and Soul’, Moods from Rotterdam now throws down a baroque remake of the mighty Vulfpeck’s ‘Backpocket’ – which is quite something. Absolute pop perfection.
