In the world of dance music being associated with the word cheese is often not a good thing, but with dj sets drawing on influences of the finest disco and funk cheese from years gone by alongside some of today's freshest nu disco and house cuts Fromage Disco really was the most fitting name.
Now Fromage Disco draws on those same infuences with their debut single - Vicious featuring the vocals of Melbourne local Jack Byrnes. A slice of disco influenced house music, complete with remixes by New York's Runaway and Agent 86.
Fromage disco started out by Dr Disconyx and Nate B as Melbourne’s first dedicated nu disco club night in 2005 featuring guest DJs from around Melbourne. From that humble beginning Fromage landed a residency at La Di Da giving them the opportunity to support many of the finest nu-disco acts in the world such as Todd Terje, Unabombers, Idjut Boys, Areoplane, Runaway, Richard Sen, Pete Herbert, Tim Sweeney, Joakim and more. This then led to further opportunities with Fromage playing regular slots both locally and interstate.
2008 saw the launch of Fromage Disco as a production duo first through a wide ranging series of edits that have received heavy blog and dancefloor attention across the world. From the Supremes to Carly Simon, Hall & Oates, First Love, Kat Mandu and Edwin Starr the edits showed early promise of the production potential in this pair. With the edits generating a good buzz around disco circles, next up came remixes for Aussie labels Dektek Records for Vitreous with the "Guise EP" and then Vinyl Pusher with Toy Robtos "Computer Games." Fromage also completed a remix for blog hit "Blue Dream Lover" by Gold Coast band ELKE.
Now with the release of Vicious, it truly seems like Fromage is ready to mature in every sense of the word.
