[Premiere] Body Music: “Don’t Think Twice”

Words: Elice

It’s premiere time! Body Music, the foxy collaborative project between The Rapture’s Vito Roccoforte, who also operates as one half of Vito & Druzzi and Boston’s producer and multi-instrumentalist Bosq, was informally formed in the spring of 2015. Bonding over a mutual love for raw, funky disco, house music and jazzy gospel piano licks, they began passing unfinished ideas back and forth until a debut EP took shape in 2017, the four-tracker “Just One” on Brooklyn’s Razor-N-Tape.

The follow up is a fresh 12″ on Head In the Clouds label with a pair of 21st century funky, low-slung anthems in the vein of Arthur Russel, ESG and Liquid Liquid. We’re psyched to premiere our favorite cut from the EP, the a-side cut “Don’t Think Twice”, an all-embracing sound palette with bouncy live drums, blissful jingles, smooth synth stabs and full strut groove, featuring the magical, soulful and flirty vocals of Christian Holiday. On the flip side the laid-back “Give My Love a Try”, and Holiday’s romantic vocals, create the perfect vibe to open or close a party.

Vrooom into the groove and blast it above, exclusively on La.Ga.Sta.

The “Don’t Think Twice/Give My Love a Try” 12”, which also features instrumental versions of both tracks, drops on October 26th on Head In the Clouds. Pre-order it here.

It’s certainly been quite some time since we last heard from Body Music, the collaborative project between The Rapture’s Vito Roccoforte, who also operates as one half of Vito & Druzzi and Boston’s producer and multi-instrumentalist Bosq. Having already wowed us with their finely crared debut EP “Just One” of all-original deep disco flavor, which was released last year on Brooklyn’s Razor-N-Tape, now they’re back with a dancefloor-friendly dubby re-edit of Spandau Ballet’s classic “Chant No 1 (Don’t Need This Pressure On)”, which you can download for absolutely free exclusively on La.Ga.Sta. In their capable hands, the oringal track is transformed into an stompy 80s disco dancefloor jam for the summer. Grab a free download of the re-edit below, and make sure to check out Body Music’s great “Influences” mix, which also features a new unreleased original tune. Play it loud, and get into the groove.

Say hello to Body Music, a collaborative project between The Rapture’s Vito Roccoforte, who also operates as one half of Vito & Druzzi and Boston’s producer and multi-instrumentalist Bosq. Bonding over a mutual love for raw, funky disco, house music and jazzy gospel piano licks, the two began passing unfinished ideas back and forth until a debut EP took shape. Entitled “Just One”, the well-crafted record features four tracks of all-original deep disco flavor. Here, we have the EPs title track, a disco-house stomper featuring vocals from Christian Holiday and the groove-filled “Drum Mix” of the b-side cut “Get It Baby”. The record comes complete with two reworks by Lay-Far and Patchworks.
