French disco and electro house maestro Blazers returns to Skint Records with ‘Traffic Lights’ released on 4 February – the first delicious taster of his forthcoming ‘Live At The Fitness Room’ EP, out the following month.
Perfectly capturing a balmy 1980’s night drive, surrounded by the city skyline, glistening streetlights, and swaying palm trees, Blazers describes ‘Traffic Lights’ as being “heavily influenced by Hi-NRG songs, Italo-disco and synth wave remixes such as Lifelike’s famous track ‘Heatwave’”. The looping synths and pulsating piano chords shimmer throughout, accompanied by the uplifting female ‘80s vocal sample of Shirley Lites ‘Heat You Up’ (West End), presenting a warm and vibrant feel-good fusion of deep house, disco, and electro.
Blazers ‘Live At The Fitness Room’ EP will be released on Skint Records on 4 March.
Blazers, aka Timothée Suillaud, is a Paris-born multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ. Growing up surrounded by music, Blazers quickly focused on production and DJing, getting his first gigs in Parisian bars. He then released several EPs on French local labels, while playing around clubs and festivals. Blazers’ track ‘Side2Side’ caught the attention of British labels, which led him to sign a recording deal with Skint Records. Blazers has since released on GLBDOM, Berlin House Music, and Nymphony Records. ‘Side2Side’ (Skint Records) was released in 2019, supported by Annie Mac, Pete Tong, MistaJam, Ashley Beedle, Sister Bliss, and Claptone, amongst many others.
