Already a favorite in the Spanish press, the success of Spain’s We Are Standard has become the stuff of miracles and mentors. The daring dance-rock quintet, who has also performed alongside the Cure, Dinosaur Jr., and LCD Soundsystem, joined native Spanish producer Carlos Hernandez to perfect the dynamic rock beats of 3000v-40000w, the dance-tastic outfit’s forthcoming debut LP, out Aug. 7th via Minty Fresh.
On “On the Floor,” We Are Standard goes for level 2.0 of disco decadence thanks to a remix from Mimoloco and Dr. J. The track surpasses the level of their lavish Latin counterparts such as CSS as it preserves much of the original instrumentation provided solely by We Are Standard’s musical masterminds. While the DJ duo integrates punky and precise electronic accents, lead singer Deu Txakartegi’s varying vocal stylings drives the revamped track, ultimately meeting somewhere between ska stomp and the intensity of an Ibiza island hotspot. It’s an intricate and irreverent glam gem with a clear mission: get everyone ‘on the floor’ — even you. Yes, you.
