No matter how cold it gets in their hometown of Milwaukee, electro-funk duo Codebreaker sure knows how to stir up a party. Check out their new single "Fire" that features London funk/house singer Kathy Diamond. It is a funked up space ride with a whole lot of attitude that the guys released on their own Disco Demolition Records imprint.
In a recent interview with Anthem magazine, the group responds to the success of D.F.A. and the so-called "disco revival" in American music. "Look, at the end of the day, I just think more people here in the U.S. are realizing, Fuck, life is for living," the group comments. "Hanging out at these socially-conservative mini-conferences known as 'indie rock shows' or some chach'd out nightclub is just a bummer."
"Give us soulful stuff; funky, sexual, free, and expressive. The tides are turning and whether it's performing with Codebreaker or DJ'ing, I've been seeing nothing but more & more people letting go, and rejecting all those silly confines," they add.
The group also announced this week that they have recorded a cover of Jimmy Ross' "First True Love Affair" originally created in 1982 for the popular Buffetlibre project. It is a relatively obscure and sophisticated italo-funk/electro soul number that is perfect for the eclectic taste of Codebreaker.
