It can take some producers years to develop a "trademark" sound, but Brooklyn-based Lou Teti's done it in six months. Like his most recent outings for Mullet and Tigers On A Leash, "Shake" offers a breezy mix of nu-disco synths, DFA-ish baggy indie-dance vocals, low-slung punk-funk bass and a sprinkling of Balearic stardust. The influences are obvious, but the blend is all his own. Remix-wise, Drop Out Orchestra turn in a baggy, E'd-up version that sounds like a cover of Primal Scream's "Loaded", while Toby Tobias lays down some delicious deep house/nu-disco fusion for bleary-eyed dancers. A versatile package is rounded off by a bumpin', deep disco rub from J Kriv.
