GIRLS LIKE DISCO BOYS LIKE BASS
London-based The Young Punx return with a 2-track release celebrating their love of all things disco and bass, collaborating with their close friends and kings of the Italian Turbofunk sound, Birdee (Southern Fried) and Reset! (Cheap Thrills, Dim Mak), with GIRLS LIKE DISCO BOYS LIKE BASS’.
A club-ready disco and bass laden teaser for the forthcoming 3rd Young Punx album, the tracks showcase the flamboyant musicianship of The Young Punx whose brass-heavy funk stylings have previously been heard as the disco band in Dizzee Rascal’s “Dirtee Disco”, as well as performing as the live backing band for Dizzee on the BBC Electric Proms and Glastonbury 2011, and in their legendary 2005 makeover of De’Lacy’s ‘Hideaway’.
The Young Punx’ Hal Ritson explains that the release’s title is derived from a tongue in cheek ‘rule of DJing’.
“It all started off as a bit of a joke amongst our DJ pals. The joke being men never go out onto the dancefloor first. But, you play some disco and the girls flock to the floor. Naturally the boys follow on then, and if you went bass heavy, the party would really begin to kick. ‘Girls Like Disco Boys Like Bass’ became code for this pattern! Of course in fact everyone likes both Disco and Bass, so don’t take it too literally!”
