RCMP IS A DISCO STATE OF MIND CREATED BY DJ APT ONE & RELATIVE Q.
When it came out on vinyl in the summer of 2009, the RCMP EP signaled the arrival of a brave new force in disco. As the “nu-disco” sound was on the rise, the forward-thinking classicism of RCMP hit the scene like a left hook. DJ Apt One and Relative Q’s narrative song-writing reminded people that it’s ok to cry on the dancefloor. Babies were conceived to this record.
Soon, with support from worldwide tastemakers like Glasgow’s Optimo, NYC’s Cosmo Baker and the cosign of XLR8R magazine, Discobelle and other outlets, the record quickly sold out of vinyl units worldwide and the digital EP and the singles it spawned, Mustache Love and USA Groove, shot up the charts at digital retailers. This, of course, was only the beginning.
Fall 2011 will see the release of RCMP II, with a remix EP featuring Elvis Suarez (Strictly Rhythm), DJ Ayres (T&A/Young Robots), Fifteenth (Fools Gold), Pink Skull (RVNG Int’l), Burnso (Young Robots), Laberge (Solid Bump) and Pumpkin Patch (Young Robots).
RCMP invites you to join them in their journey.
