Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 6 months, chances are you’ll have heard this man’s name floating around at some point during the summer. Signed to the Sweat It Out! label, Dcup, along with label mates Yolanda Be Cool, is responsible for the massive summer smash “We No Speak Americano”. He’s one of my favourite producers around at the moment, and with the  nu-disco style in full swing right now, I thought it was only right to delve into his back catalogue for this week’s post

Dcup’s first original release, 2009’s “Style” EP, is four tracks of slamming retro funk-pop, bouncing basslines, and just a hint of hip hop styles. That’s pretty much all there is to say about it. Oh yeah, and it’s wicked, mustn’t forget that. I think “Shake Dat” is my favourite from this release. A remix EP was also released.

After the release of the Style EP, Dcup went on to deliver a handful of storming remixes for several Sweat It Out! artists, as well as a few friends from different labels. Here are a few of my favourites 🙂

Killa Kela – Everyday (Dcup Remix) (160 kbps)

Phonat – Love Hits The Fan (Dcup Remix) (160 kbps)

Yolanda Be Cool – Afro Nuts (Dcup Remix) (160 kbps)

And finally, we come to That Tune That Everyone’s Heard. I won’t bother posting the original since you’ll most likely have heard every DJ and their dog and their dog’s newborn litter playing it this summer. Instead, keeping with the disco theme of this post, I’ll leave you with this amazingly funky bootleg from Britain’s own Go Go Bizkitt!.

See you next month,
AY! x
