IT’S VIBE O’CLOCK ON FRIDAY, DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DANCING TO THIS WEEKEND YET?!
Actually don’t stress, as always I gotchu fam.
We got a Twitter fam party up in today y’all! Vancouver’s finest, Pat Lok, has teamed up with LA future-funk duo Party Pupils for the soon-to-be floor filler, “From The Back” featuring the vocal stylings of one of my favorite all-time follows, Dances With White Girls. Seriously, no one rants like Dances.
I’m not exaggerating about it being a Twitter party, btw. That’s actually how Pat and Party Pupils first linked up. As Pat shared, “I had been following PP on Twitter and saw they were talking about an A-Ha remix, so I reached out and sent them some piano ideas for it and that was how we connected. A few months ago we finally met backstage at Electric Forest in Michigan where were both performing and hit it off.” After playing out the demos from a session in LA they did together to audiences in the US and Asia, they collectively decided to enlist Dances to finish off the track with his vocals as “the cherry on top” to the song.
I love when Twitter can be the result of wonderful things like this instead of serving as a place where white supremacists roam free. It’s stories like this that keep me from taking a cheese grater to my hashtag tattoo tbh.
Anyway off you go! Dance the night away!
Oh! And if you happen to be hashtag blessed enough to be in San Diego, Los Angeles, or Brooklyn in the coming weeks you can catch both Pat and Party Pupils live (and livetweet the entire experience if your heart so desires)!
