Much of American Dance Music Vol 1. is aimed squarely at the dance floor, whether its Todd Osborns smooth and playful romp, 80s Are Here (Part 2), or Noncompliants acid tweaked ode to girls everywhere, Femslash. Throwing Shapes comes bursting from the gates with the raving stomp of Heatstroke, channeling Midwest raves as much as the Thomas Bangalter tunes inspired by them. Savile offers the growling stepper, Reality Is A Sound (Share Power Mix), while Alex Falks Vines provides an effervescent vocal moment. Olin and Maxine & Cleo double down on hypnotic motifs: the formers 2D Rhythm whips snare riffs off the walls of a late night jam; the latters Imagine Yrself catches dancers in a lockstep house groove with stimulating vocals as its key. The compilation concludes on Hippie Priests Dream Machine, whose melancholic melodies and cinematic scale twiddle heartstrings with a deft hand.
American Dance Music Vol. 1 is an eight track digital compilation with a four track vinyl sampler featuring tracks by Todd Osborn, Throwing Shapes, Savile, and Olin. It was mastered by Dietrich Schoenemann and will be available in stores and online October 27th, distributed by Wordandsound.
