Listen to a New Disco-Minded Single from Skream
By now, the affection former dubstep mainstay Skream displays for disco should no longer take anyone by surprise; the man shared an extended, disco-themed mix back in May and has been taking his proclivity for funky, high-stepping grooves with him behind the decks at various clubs and festivals in recent months. With this in mind, it was really only a matter of time before Skream offered up an original tune which followed suit, and today, that single has arrived. Featuring Sam Frank on vocals, Skream's "Rollercoaster" indulges in enough straight-up disco stylings to challenge even Daft Punk's latest album, with a steady stream of crisp electric pianos, playful synth lines, and slap bass joining cheeky lyrics like "Shake your booty 'til the morning light," and "Throw your hands in the air because it's a rollercoaster ride tonight." It even goes on to feature a particularly kitschy guitar solo. Those curious as to what the results sound like can make of Skream's newfound disco love what they will via the player below.
