A1 Release The Kraken (feat. Thumpasaurus)
A2 Night Shift
Powering out across the open highways, House Of Disco, stick it in 5th gear for their 23rd outing that see’s the return of the mighty Fouk. Four funked up, disco house jams that are drenched in undeniable grooves, ‘80s synth gold and tight percussive touches.
The A side houses ‘Release The Kraken’ with it's pitch bent synthwork, juicy basslines and emphatic vocal touches from Thumpasaurus. Next up the signature Fouk sound is bottled up on ‘Night Shift’, marrying sweltering synths with hazy Rhodes, beefy bass and infectious drums.
Flip it over to find the walking bass badness and acid infused melodies of ‘Gloriole’, with ‘Arrakis’, a strutting summertime guitar-led jam full of choice chants, ‘80s fuzzy keys and bongo loops, taking the closing spot - the perfect way to round off this huge House Of Disco release.

HORSE MEAT DISCO/ SEVERINO Love it. Love Fouk.
FRANCOIS K I like it.
MIRA FARENHEIT/ DJS4CLIMATE CHANGE Omg this is amazing. So funky and just the right amount of oddball. This entire release really rides that line between disco and house - the bounce vs the groove - and each of the tracks has its own distinct Fouk flavor. Arrakis is the most introspective, Thumpasaurus the most playful.
FRED EVERYTHING Love this release. Full support.
