A NOT SO MODEL LIFE: Models
EscortEnjoying accolades ranging from the New York Times to Pitchfork, NYC's disco champions are an incredible cast of musicians including founder/producer Eugene Cho, JKriv, Dave Sharma and lead singer Adeline Michèle.
Escort’s long awaited second LP “Animal Nature” is a leap forward from their critically acclaimed debut. “Animal Nature” stays true to the tradition of clubland’s holy trinity – New York, Chicago and Detroit – while staying on the forefront of modern disco and a new era of not-so-underground dance music. In an age where the dance music is over saturated with countless producers churning out an endless stream beats and remixes, Escort stands out, in part, by creating dance music the old fashioned way: with impeccable production, musicianship, and songwriting. Their explosive live performances have cemented their reputation as one of the city's premiere live acts and has enabled them to showcase their unique live dance sound around the globe.

– The New York Times, T Magazine

" ...seamless blending of deep house beats and disco glitter, the product of co-founders and producers Eugene Cho and Dan Balis, plus buttery R&B singing by Adeline Michèle"

Body Talk, ” has more verve than Studio 54 on a Bicentenial Saturday night with ’70s keys, luxurious strings and synths, handclaps, and Adeline Michèle’s guttural vocals.

“This New York dance orchestra was churning out period-perfect disco homages years before Daft Punk got lucky.

Pompeya

Pompeya is a Moscow band that creates unabashed Pop and New Wave music. Their debut "Tropical" and follow up "Foursome" earned the band significant popularity in their home country, "energetically introducing Moscow’s youth to electronic indie culture" remarks Los Angeles radio station KCRW. The two releases were reissued in November 2013 by No Shame, alongside with a remix LP.
The group released their "Night EP" in June 2014. Co-Produced by Brian Mctear (Local Natives, War on Drugs, Twin Sister), Spin Magazine remarks the work "add[s] a mellow freshness to Pompeya's brand of upbeat, frisky disco." The success of this creative marriage led to the two collaborating on the band’s newest LP. Together with David Harley (War on Drugs, Nightlands), "Real" builds upon Pompeya’s foundation of pop with more diverse arrangements, instrumentation and spectrum of tone.
