Ready 4 Love

Parisian producer Lifelike and Germany’s Kris Menace last teamed up just over a decade ago with their globe trotting smash “Discopolis”, which if those of us older Ninjas remember, was truly one of the first shots fired in what we’d now consider the nu-disco landscape. It was no surprise that nearly ten years later, as we heard the two dance forces had teamed up again for another dual entry “Ready 4 Love”, we more than took notice. “Ready 4 Love” composedly skitters on top of a vibrant, 80’s hearkening Roland 909 progression, lush claps & hi’s and modish disko bassline before settling into a directed sea of boogying club sounds. While much of today’s nu-disco and indie-dance associated records have a blueprint, pop structure in nature, it’s been artists like Lindstrøm, Todd Terje and Lifelike & Kris Menace that have been keeping the more musically inclined sector of us disko-kids sated with genre expanding work including this latest single entry into that elite group: “Ready 4 Love”. While we may have felt a little burned in regards to the decade long wait since the pair’s last joint-effort, “Ready 4 Love” is quickly making up for the time we’ve lost between releases.

We may have been a few days late to the party on this release, but with support already pouring out of TMN favorites Gorgon City, Tensanke and AlunaGeorge, it’s easy to see why we’ve been so wrapped up in “Ready 4 Love” and had to share regardless.
