Jassu dear friends and music lovers! Let's welcome the Greek DJ and production duo Boys' Shorts! After releases on labels like Permanent Vacation, HE.SHE.THEY, Cormac’s Polari Records or Future Disco, after remixes for Alison Goldfrapp, Yuksek w/ Polo & Pan, Kasper Bjørke, Boy George or Casey Spooner (Fischerspooner), we're more than proud to add them to our LIVE AT ROBERT JOHNSON family circle! The duo consisting of Vangelis (formerly of LAGASTA aka »Last Gas Station«) and electronic recording artist Tareq are purveyors of the fine art of including a little bit of everything in their DJ sets - and in their productions: Be it house or slow techno, be it disco or acid - their main goal is to »make people dance!«. With this new 3-track release they definitely won't take no prisoners. And what a way to start with title track »On The High Line«: A fantastic Euro-Wave-Disco-type of tune featuring the über-cool spoken word voice of DJ City. Think early to mid 80ies Berlin (or London … or any other European city around that time), think of neon lights, think of ice cold nights and hot 'n' sweaty clubs - yes, we know, it sounds like a cliché … but hell yeah, this tune is a CHOON. And anybody who doesn't move his behinds to it must surely be dead. Let's go to our »Dark Room Rendez-Vous« next. The boys stay instrumental for this one - maybe because there's no need to talk in a dark room … This dark room though really ain't too dark at all. It shines bright with light positive synth lines and a steady uplifting beat. It might even sound more like a visit to your local sauna when you're sitting in that bubbly whirlpool for relaxation purposes. Yet also: No prisoners taken here. »All Over« starts with hard synth stabs, followed by a beautiful electro beat until the 4-to-the-floor bass drum hits hard - very hard. Here too we find these uplifting positive synthesizer melodies the boys so easily manage put in their productions. And isn't a huge portion of positivity not something we need these days? Come on! We need it ALL OVER! Boys’ Shorts toured around Europe over the last years, playing in world renowned venues such as Berghain/Panorama bar and London’s E1, opened for Hot Chip and will hopefully play at Robert Johnson very soon. In the meantime let's put on our shorts and go for a walk on the high line - or go to the dark room …
