New House Music – New Funky House Music, Disco Biscuits
In The Beginning There Was Jack
Maybe you’re looking for new funky house music, new electro house music or plain and simple a straight forward new house music track? Disco Biscuits, with its two completely different styles of mixes, including vocals and instrumentals for both has got you covered.
On the electro and new funky house music side of things, the Electro Funk mixes come straight out of the gate with a four to the floor, driving, skippy beat intro, only to be attacked by an unconventional dirty and bouncy electro bass line, underpinned with a complementary chopped up disco sample, what Marc calls the disco biscuit.
A disco biscuit is more commonly known as the ecstasy pill or MDMA and formed its slang name back in the disco era. It was actually a Quaalude back then but somehow after deciding it didn’t want to be a downer anymore, became an upper.
Methylenedioxymethamphetamine is a stimulant that is used for its euphoric effects and was originally used in psychotherapy but was declared illegal in the U.S. in 1995 and today the party drug users have an uncanny ability to dance all night long.
Dude, Gimme Some Lyrics, I Gotta Have Some Lyrics Man
“There is a place I can go and I can dance all night, I get this feeling deep inside me and it feels so right”, but it’s also about the music and new house music we love. After the drug referenced intro line, Marc continues and brings the feeling of the freedom of dancing and how the groove becomes your control into play. “There’s no controlling what this rhythm needs to say to me, I feel the rush is comin’, it’s about to set me free”. “It can be taken two different ways” says Marc, “as in most times you hear a vocal I’ve done”. The rush is the build in the track or the drug coming back for another go? Doesn’t matter, all that matters in the end is that the DJ is doing his job and introducing you to new sounds and the latest new house music he’s got in his bag that will keep you dancing all night long and not necessarily what the guy behind the speaker stack has in his pocket.
The Origin of the Original & One More Night Out
The original mix kicks in with the tiniest sample of an old, almost unknown disco record, layered across a keyboard inside a sampler, filtered and banged upon to invent a completely original hook, but not at all without taking influence from one of Marc’s favourites, Daft Punk and one of their many massive hits, “One More Time”.
It was 7:00 O’clock on a Sunday morning in November 2000 at one of the biggest clubs in Toronto. Marc was in between contracts deejaying on cruise ships for Sun Cruises and had been…throat clear…”dancing all night long” when BOOM! The last song comes to an end and the DJ, possibly Mark Oliver announces on the mic, “thanks for comin’ out, goodnight” “I was like wwhhat?” says Marc, then after a short pause, a new house music track drops. “I remember hearing the two note, sampled multi instrument sound reminiscent of something from the 70’s but totally brand new, the beat kicked in underneath and the vocoded vocal dropped over top: “one more time” perfect!” and the club went wild. “it took me about three weeks to find out what it was” says Marc, but within a month and a bit, he too had one of the biggest new house music 12 inch singles in the world in his own arsenal and ever since has hoped that one day someone might get that same feeling he did that early Sunday morning, to one of his productions and now we have Disco Biscuits.
