She's So Rad - Last Dance E.P.
Until now, the band She’s So Rad have been synonymous with post/punk,shoegaze music. With the ‘Last Dance E.P.’ producer Jeremy Toy has dug deep in his knowledge of disco and boogie to create a ‘special disco version’ release for the band. The result is a 6 track E.P. full of disco/boogie heat.
Last Dance E.P. has been created entirely with analog synths, live instruments and 1980’s era specific drum machines all performed by Jeremy Toy, recorded in his studio beneath a rundown cinema in his hometown of Auckland, New Zealand. There is no use of soft-synths or software based samplers as Toy wanted to deliver a record that was made “like they used to make records” with real musicians playing real instruments. The heart of this record is a Moog synthesizer, DMX and Drumtraks drum machines. Vocals are performed by Anji Sami and Jeremy Toy in unison to create their unique vocal sound.
The record has been made at the highest fidelity possible, 24bit 88.2khz, so that the vinyl pressing can be as sonically full and as close to reality as a digital recording can be.These songs have been transformed live by the band and the band can now play disco party sets on request as an alternative to their shoegaze sets. Toy has said of this change “it is such a great thing to be able to play this live boogie with a band that is used to playing post punk music, the energy a rock band brings to the boogie music is great, we end up with a live sound that is much closer to the raw feeling of E.S.G. or Talking Heads than the super smooth boogie of Marcus Miller and Tom Browne although these artists are also big influences on the E.P.” The E.P. has guest appearances from Recloose - saxophone on ‘Disco Star’ and Steph Brown (aka Lips) - Sequential Circuits Pro-One synth wobbles on ‘Live Via Camloops’.No stranger to a large variety of genres of music, Toy is a past participant at the Red Bull Music Academy and has produced records for Opensouls, Tyra Hammond & The Tornadoes, Ladi6, Lips,Hollie Smith and The Sami Sisters as well as appearing on records by Julien Dyne, Liam Finn, Electric Wire Hustle, Homebrew, David Dallas and Mark De Clive-Lowe.
