Over the past few months, I have become obsessed with the sounds of deep house, nudisco, and synth pop. Synth pop has been an obsession of mine for years now, but it wasn’t until recently that it has led me into the music scene of the other two styles. There’s something about those bright, neon grooves that really grabs the ear.
DJ Johnny James sent his latest track, “Haircuts at Night”, my way and I instantly fell in love with the song. In just this one song, he manages to blend the genres of deep house, nudisco, and synth pop with ease.
The production shines as a hard hitting beat lets the pulsing synths set an urgent rhythm. The detailed layers of various keys and random, ambient sound really helps the track give off that extra polish that every good synth piece needs.
