Dumbers & MAXIMALS‘s new track Dancin’ takes a vintage-inspired sound and makes it accessible to the modern generation of electronic music lovers, proving that disco still holds the timeless power to get a crowd grooving.
It’s a unique take on dance when the scene is so focused on futuristic productions. Accented by soulful melodies, the Protocol Recordings producers manage to provide a fresh twist on the label’s familiar house sound with the funky, bouncy bass line of Dancin’.
Founded by Nicky Romero, Protocol Recordings is synonymous with house and progressive house music. However, the label has been signing dynamic up-and-coming talent – such as Dumbers & MAXIMALS – and thus diversifying its music.
MAXIMALS is an Italian duo who are inspired by the atmosphere of dance music in the ’70s and ’80s, while Dumbers brings his experience playing in funk and rock bands to the table – all influences that are evident in the vibe of Dancin’.
Dumbers & MAXIMALS have received support from the likes of Thomas Gold, Firebeatz and more. Perhaps they will be the ambassadors to bring “old school”, disco-influenced music back to the mainstrean.
