Jupiter, boy/girl duo based in Paris, are making strides and literally setting trends in the field of electropop, disco-funk, indie dance, any-other-genres-you-wanna-name. I had the distinct pleasure of listening to the entire album and it takes me back to that exact feeling nearly 4 years ago when I first heard Breakbot’s Dance On Glass Mix. Magnificence and utter class set to dancing, bouncing breaks. Jupiter’s “Juicy Lucy” album went up for digital release back on June 4th, but still has yet to receive the attention it deserves. The album contains several unreleased works on their soundcloud as well as my personal favorite, “St. Petersbourg” (below).
“Juicy Lucy” will be available for CD purchase in stores across Europe and select stores here in the US on Monday. For now, you can listen to the album sampler and if you love what you hear, follow the link below to iTunes for a digital copy. Or if you want to read me ramble a bit more, continue reading for my official review. Cheers!
Purchase: Jupiter – Juicy Lucy Album [iTunes]
“Jupiter brings funk to the forefront and leads a mighty brigade for true connoisseurs of disco dance music with their debut album. This isn’t garden-variety, looped italo-house we find ever-present on soundcloud; you can actually hear the thought and meticulous work in every downbeat. “Juicy Lucy” is like that mirage in the desert of digitally released music. Now that this mirage is released and has become a driving work of art, we can rest easy knowing Jupiter holds the reigns in original and forward-thinking disco production. As composers of digital masterpiece, Jupiter stands to break the ordinary mold of disco house and transcend, within the next couple years, as widely respected and regarded musical trendsetters”
