Acos Coolkas - Free Flight

Some lush tuneage here from Slovenian duo Acos Coolkas, which I'm gonna call 'nu-disco' for want of a more appropriate term. This is no camp, kitschy glitterball extravaganza, though… more an exercise in groovy electronica. So if you prefer we could go with 'groovy electronica' instead?

In any case, there's a bit of a back story to this, in that Free Flight was first picked up on by Tirk Records as an opener for their Tirk02 compilation last year. 40,000 downloads later, apparently, it now gets a full release on sister label Nang, complete with a host of the obligatory remixes. The headline rubs I guess are those from Bearfunk chap Max Essa, but fellow Slovenians Ichisan and Sare Halicek both do pretty good jobs, too. To be brutally honest, there's not a lot to choose from between the mixes to these ears, but they're all very playable examples of this kind of synth-led, disco-infused midtempo tackle and any/all of them will suit your 'nu-disco' (for want of a more appropriate term) floor nicely.

This came out yesterday, so I'm obviously horrendously behind the times now. But, y'know, it's quite good.

About: Acos Coolkas are, as stated, from Slovenia. Nang is a London-based label you REALLY should know about by now, but if you don't, here's their website. That is all.


  1. How can we get Acos CoolKAs and Seva K in London? They were phenominal last night in Dubai!

  2. I don't know but I'm guessing Nang would know - weblink above!
