"I don't want to be alone, so pick up the phone and call me," plead our heroes on this synth-pop fetishists' homage to the humble booty call. Self-confessed lovers of "good hair" Chordashian are the heroes in question, making their first appearance on SpaceWalker recordings. The Brooklyn duo offer up three different versions of their cheap-pop meets nu-disco cut. The radio-friendly original seems set to get a few spins at tongue-in-cheek indie discos, while the Out All Night version peppers a dark nu-disco groove with twinkling, 8-bit synths and twiddly synth-funk solos. Best of all, though, is the touchy-feely BRONX Mix, which is almost Balearic in its rush-inducing appeal.
Sticking Brooklyn-based duo Chordashian into a neat pigeonhole isn't particularly easy. "Don't Wait Up", the lead track from this extended EP, is a great example. Utilising traditional instruments, vintage synths and the latest soft synth plug-ins, it sounds like a curious mash-up of Hall & Oates, andBenoit & Sergio with a Buzzin' Fly-ish deep house sheen. "Sea Crest", meanwhile, could be considered to be nu-Balearic - it certainly has that blinking-at-the-sun gorgeousness - while "The Jam" is thrillingly adventurous (if a little odd). With a trio of fine remixes also included, "Don't Wait Up" is easily Mullet's best for some time.
