Bodymovin, the self-titled debut album combining the efforts of German producers DJ Friction and Thomilla, maintains a head-bobbing groove while avoiding unnecessary ornamentation. With patient construction, the Stuttgart-based duo weaves a subtly textured disco landscape of analog synths, buzzy basslines, pretty female vocal accents, and occasionally crooning robot voices, as on the infectious “Yeah!” and later amid the serene oscillating sunset synths of “More & More.” Halfway through the album, “Everybody” takes the funky vibe that pops up on “It Wasn’t Calf” and “Hold Back” and Bodymovin rubs it around in the dirt with some sinister keys and deeper bass. With its blissful synths and an introspective beat, "Get Down" artfully dissipates the funk and lays the album to rest.
