New single is a disco-inspired dance hit in the waiting.
In a time when remix culture rules, Tom & Collins are a duo of electronic artists that reign like calculated kings of modern dance music.
Taking inspiration from the 70s disco scene, the duo’s new single Give Me One Reason offers up a groove-laden slice of effortlessly cool passion. It’s this subtle characteristic that makes this single so remarkable; it turns a genre that, retrospectively, is typically more than a bit cheesy and made it cool again.
The funky guitar rhythms are loose and energetic but also tight and controlled, while the drums that form the backbone of the sound are steady and simple. The spirit and soul of disco remains strong despite these calculated distinctions, which in itself is the magic of the track.
Tom & Collins have found a successful formula for bringing disco effectively into the modern dance scene, without sacrificing the soul that made it so appealing in the first instance.
