Basement Love

Basement Love might be a newer face to disco production but its main influence and resemblance is nowhere near present day. Basement Love is a solo project of Jacob H. who left college to bring his inspiration of 70’s and 80’s disco to life. Coming out of Toronto, Jacob has been releasing a series of remixes and singles throughout the past 2 years and is now in prep for his first EP planned for early 2013.

With inspiration for oldies disco, nu disco and slow house, his work represents the expected slow disco movement yet in the most unexpectedly striking way.

“[Basement Love is] A lush soundscape of sawing synths, funky basses and sweeping arps blended together with old pieces of disco tunes, mechanical drums and cave-verbed vocals.”

Basement Love – Without Love

Basement Love’s most recent releases target the more romanticized side of the genre, putting listeners in a slowed bass, tropical yet dark disco atmosphere. The single “Bunk Love” was actually a result of his EDM competition entry this past summer on Reddit where it took the winning spot as best “Bodyfunk” track (or Bunk, for short) and a turn for one of Basement Love’s best productions yet.

Take a listen to Basement Love’s latest original work streamed here, then head on over to his SoundCloud for equally dance-able tunes including remixes by Kimbra and Metric.
