After the overwhelming success of their highly addictive debut “Cairo”, Polish electropop trio Kamp! are back with a brand new single, to be released on February 15th via Discotexas. “Melt” features the same kind of melodic synth-pop influenced by 80’s new wave, but with a more dance-oriented electro beat this time around.
What do you get when you combine a master’s degree in philosophy with a love of dance and electronic music production and a fascination with the latest forms of disco influenced sounds? Philosophy Of Sound – an electro nu-disco project spearheaded by Melbourne based producers Martin K and John Salmon, bringing you hot disco guitar licks, booty shaking bass and a selection of some of Melbourne’s best vocalists.
Martin is a philosopher turned music producer originally hailing from Poland, who after spending some time in his other project Koshowko decided to start a ’beyond-disco’ side project. John has an international background as a DJ and producer. Over the last few years both have been working in close collaboration with various electronic music labels and artists, which has led to many remixes and releases on several labels in both Australia and Europe.
“It Is Like That” is the duo’s debut single with Discotexas and it is part of a three release plan that will be unveiled in the following months. As of now, the single is already supported by The Magician, Social Disco Club, Tiago and Tronik Youth.
As a bonus, get your hands on Philosophy of Sound’s excellent remix of “Cairo” by Polish up-and-coming electropop trio Kamp!
Hailing from the cold plains of Poland, Kamp! is an electronic pop trio whose mission is to warm up dance floors around the world and make people dance like there’s no tomorrow. Formed in 2008, the band already has a strong following in their homeland and is starting to make waves abroad. Their melodic synth-based pop is influenced by 80’s new wave, 70’s krautrock and 90’s french house genres.
With three singles under their belts they’ve been playing in and out of Poland (USA, UK, France, Germany), sharing stages with Caribou, Deadmau5, Robyn, Goldfrapp, M83, White Lies, Moderat, Black Lips or Joakim. For your listening pleasure, you can stream below “Distance of the Modern Hearts”, released on Brennnessel in 2009.
Kamp! are currently working on a full album, but in the meantime they have a new EP out on Discotexas since the beginning of September. The Cairo EP includes the original mix of the title track, a synth-filled, electro dance affair, and remixes by JBAG, Moullinex and Social Disco Club. And if you want more club-ready electropop goodness, here is an outrageously great remix of “Distance of the Modern Heart” by Swedish talent Odahl.
