After hearing the “Electric Touch” collaboration between Nashville vocalist Patrick Baker (pictured above) and Russian production duo Hot Hot Hawk, I reached out to get some insight into how they started working togher.
“Hot Hot Hawk got in touch with me about doing some vocals after hearing the demos I had posted on SoundCloud,” says Baker. “Even though we couldn’t be further apart geographically we’re both in a smaller sub-scene within the larger indie dance/nu-disco community that tends to gravitate towards a more retro/80′s aesthetic.
I think because it’s a smaller scene everybody is more aware of each other and keeps up with all the new music coming out. When they reached out to me they already had the track fleshed out minus a couple arrangement tweaks and were looking for a vocal. It was good timing for me because I was getting out of my summer mode and looking to do something with a little darker vibe.”
“Electric Touch” will be released officially on the Disco Deluxe Vol. 3 compilation, out Dec. 23 through Disco Soul Records.
