Various Artists - First Light: Volume 1 (Compiled By CC:Disco!)
Less chin stroking, more dancing people! The inimitable CC:DISCO! has partnered with hyped underground label Soothsayer to curate the first in a collaborative series of compilations entitled First Light.
CC:DISCO! has procured exclusive tracks from emerging and undiscovered artists across genres such as boogie, balearic, funk, disco and house – with each sound piquing her interest, culminating in a finished product that would undeniably slot into a CC:DISCO! set. Her mission statement? "Less chin stroking, more dancing." It captures what CC:DISCO! is all about: the dancefloor.
CC:DISCO! certainly knows how to work a d-floor. She has crushed the closing set at Pitch Music and Arts Festival, and graced a multitude of festival stages such as Meredith (now scripted in local folklore), Croatia’s Dimensions, and Sugar Mountain's hallowed Boiler Room. She slayed Resident Advisor’s RA583 mix, and has nailed guest spots for radio giants NTS, Red Light Radio, triple j and Dublab as well as hosting her famed Friday evening show on PBS FM; Smoke and Mirrors. It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say she is now one of the biggest Australian DJs on the planet.
CC:DISCO! has become a staple presence at Soothsayer parties since the birth of the label two years ago, and an easy family dynamic developed. That family has come together for Volume 1 of First Light: a collection of brand new tracks from Australia and New Zealand’s thriving local scenes. These songs – sourced by CC:DISCO! through chance meetings, fangirl moments and dogged emails – come together to create a body of music that is oddly satisfying and timeless.
