Mercer takes a modern disco jaunt on new EP, ‘NEO DISCO 2’
NEO DISCO 2 is Mercer‘s invitation to listeners to sonically step inside the producer’s disco dojo. The three-track EP radiates a soulful, dance-centric funk that colors each of NEO DISCO 2’s cuts, “Your Love,” “Disco Parade,” and “You & I.” NEO DISCO 2 melds old-school disco sound with the clean and comparatively more contemporary neo-disco style that has pervaded so many of Mercer’s preceding productions, like “Studio 54” and “Alright.”
The instrumentally rich groove of NEO DISCO 2’s inclusions touts looping melodies and bold backbeats. Each tune fluidly pushes forward with heart, evoking the euphoria specific to disco inflection. As NEO DISCO 2 evinces, disco never died—it’s just gotten a modern update, Mercer style.
