This Easter Special Sunday Service comes all the way from the US, as nu-disco pioneer Birdee takes to the decks with his summery sermon, on the back of his album release. Put the chocolate eggs down for now and get dancing in the sun!
Birdee – AKA Marcello De Angellis – recently dropped his debut long player, Then Came the Sun, on London’s ISM Records, which marked the 100th release for the label. The album is a collection of new recordings, remixes, and a couple of previously released singles that really sum up the work of the LA-based producer.
If you are looking for an LP that really ticks the ‘summer vibes’ box, then this is it. 15 years of experience as a DJ and producer almost certainly means that the release is going to be ablaze with towering disco infernos…safe to say, it is.
Then Came the Sun, sees Birdee collaborating with a wealth of artists, including vocalist Chloe Amber and ISM Records label head, Yam Who?, as well as going solo on several of the tracks. His history as a breakbeat DJ means he really knows how to inject his productions with some ass-shakin’ funk – a crucial element for any big, fat disco tracks.
Working with Glitterbox and alongside acts such as Aeroplane and Seamus Hadji, it is plain to see that Birdee has poured the experience, that he has amassed over the years, liberally over his music. The record is laden with gems, such as the glistening opener, Give Into Love, and the funked-up Do Your Thing.
We urge you to go and grab a copy while it is still hotter than the LA sun – head here you get yours, now. In the meantime, enjoy Birdee‘s minimix, which he has recorded exclusively for The Waveform Transmitter.
