DJ, singer, and producer Nicko Fadiga and the Funk Brothers are set to release their latest dance-friendly album, Tasting Room, on October 18.
The record features collaborations with some of the hottest dance music stars in the world.
The duo, whose full-length debut album is titled Tastingroom, have already released a slew of singles over the past few years, including the hit “Ain’t No Party Like a Party.”
Nicko says, “We’ve got some of [the] hottest dance producers in the game.
Some of the best DJs in the business.
Some amazing DJs.
Some truly fantastic artists.
We’re just trying to put together something that is a bit more dance-y than the last few records.”
Fadiga, who has been featured on the hit TV show Dancing With The Stars, says, “[This album] is a continuation of the original songs.
The dance sounds are a little bit different and the production is a little more modern and hip-hop-oriented.”
Facing a shortage of producers who have a track record with dance music, Fadige says, it’s up to him to find the best producers out there to help him find that next big hit.
“We’re always looking for people to collaborate with, but we’re also looking for more producers who are into dance music.
We love the fact that they have some talent but they’re also really into what they’re doing.
It’s a good mix of both.”
Tasting Room is available for preorder through iTunes and Amazon.
The album will be released in the fall.
