- Please / Make Funky House Great Again
Edible | 26.07.2019
Having been at the forefront of dance music for over a decade, James Connolly revives his house-focused Dance System project for this first-rate single summer for Eats Everything’s Edible label.
If slammin’ house bangers are what you like, then Dance System delivers them in spades. An infectious piano motif and thumping kick shapes the lead track, ‘Please’, which pumps relentlessly, bountiful with playful vocal chops, tension building strings and DJ trickery edits. The gloriously titled ‘Make Funky House Great Again’ certainly makes a damn fine stab at doing just that. A skippy rhythm underpins some dope filter work on the sample, a nod perhaps to the French sounds of Roule/Bangalter, but totally fresh with Dance System’s modern sound stamped all over it.
Connolly has left an indelible mark as a progressive producer and DJ under both his L-Vis 1990 and Dance System aliases, alongside co-founding the highly influential label, Night Slugs. Following Dance System releases on Clone and Ultramajic, Connolly took a hiatus from producing house music, as he focused on other projects, reviving the alias in April with the Wind ‘Em Up EP, on Monkeytown Records, which was supported by Calvin Harris, Peggy Gou, DJ Boring, Ben UFO, Modeselektor, Sally C, E?clair Fifi, Mella Dee and our very own Eats Everything.
Dance System’s ‘Please / Make Funky House Great Again’ EP is set for release this July on Eats Everything’s Edible label.
