Ten years ago dance floor demons Kris Menace and Lifelike teamed up for “Discopolis,” a sultry, synthy Ibiza anthem issued on Vulture Music. The song was later licensed by Defected and re-imagined by various remixers. For the curious, there’s an accompanying must-see music video starring model Lily Tenue directed by Seb Janiak.
The duo is back a decade later in a big way with “Ready 4 Love,” a brilliant new collaboration out June 15 on Computer Science. Like its predecessor, “Ready 4 Love” finds them doubling down on the post-Moroder sound they forged on their debut track, taking it to an even cooler further.
On the eve of the release of “Ready 4 Love,” we asked both gentlemen to talk up five tunes that are currently rocking their world.
1. Lifelike & Kris Menace – “Ready 4 Love”
Our first track ten years after we made “Discopolis” together! We hope you enjoy!
2. Lifelike feat. Giorgio Moroder – “Overdrive”
The first blink from Lifelike’s forthcoming Capitol signed album.
3. Kris Menace feat. Vincent Honca – “Drastical”
New track from Kris and a newly discovered talent, Vincent Honca, on Compuphonic.
4. Audio District – “Run Through the Streets” (Kris Menace Remix)
