DJ Colette
Our Day
(EMD/Nettwerk)

DJ Colette has smoky eyes and red lips. Her hair is bleached blond and she sings. She mixes her own house too. She is from LA, where music is born, or departs to discover the big world outside. I know this because I have lived in that city of demons, and many of my friends do not realize the significance of the ‘80s and the beat of that music in the city where funk was still alive, before America turned it to trash, before decadence lost itself in too much mush….

Our Day goes through deep vocal house—voice of Colette featured on several tracks, beautiful—mixes echoes of Daft Punk, then solid house, before moving into a slightly more repetitive tech-house beat and bringing us back down to song. The beat pulses, pulses though the body, reminiscent of the flow of night, dancing, taking you into the early morning, moving like that.
