The former LCD Soundsystem member Nancy Whang is now half of the Juan Maclean, which means she’s largely responsible for In A Dream, your current reigning Album Of The Week. And on a new EP, she’s also tapping deep into dance music’s past. On The Nancy Whang Casablanca Reworks, Whang teams up with various dance-music producers to cover tracks that were released on Casablanca Records, a classic disco label that also had Kiss and Parliament on its roster. The EP opens with Whang and Audiojack taking on “Like An Eagle,” a 1979 disco nugget from Dennis Parker. In the video, we see images of various iconic New York landmarks as they drift out of focus. Check it out below.
The Nancy Whang Casablanca Reworks is available now via Gomma, and it’ll be out 9/26 on iTunes.
