The Weekend E.P by the Junior Park Allstars

Junior Park Allstars is the new NuDisco project from Westlake72 inspired by the halcyon post-disco sounds of early 1980s NYC's warm summer days and even hotter nights...
Kicking of with When Ur X Wants U Back - a soulful female vocal plays out over a rolling post-disco DMX drum groove that evokes Cheryl Lynn's Jam & Lewis Produced boogie classic Encore. An arpeggiated, new wave style, bassline provides a nicely contrasting middle eight section. More DMX action follows on The Weekend - a Jellybean Benitez inspired Latin freestyle groove. Imagine a young Madonna Louise Ciccone, all faded 501s and jangling bracelets, dancing with wild abandon on a night out at the Funhouse in 1983 and you'll get the picture!
We switch to the classic 808 sounds of early electro and freestyle to round things of with I Can't Take The Heartache! Here a compelling bassline, insistent cowbells, Juno-60 stabs, and a furious female lead are juxtaposed with a deep and soulful chord progression.
