Brooklyn based Escort is inspired by old and nu disco as well as a range of 80s artists. In addition to having released a series of nice 12" singles, they're known for their live performances. The full orchestra consists of a 17-piece line up, including French singer Adeline Michele on lead vocals, three backing vocals, three violinists, three brass players, two guitar players, two percussionists, one bass player, one keyboard player and one drummer.
Their latest jam is a nu disco cover of Cocaine Blues. One for the dance floor, early night.
The tune can be downloaded from RCRDLBL. In a Riff City interview, Balis and Cho talk about the creative process that went into Cocaine Blues and other Escort tunes.
Their best song to date is Bright New Life, which has that magic combination of nu disco beats and 80s electronic sounds.
