New York’s electronic music scene brings to you Escort, a disco-funk band. Founders of the band, Eugene Cho and Dan Balis began as a duo remixing house tracks in the early 2000’s. Influenced by the music they mixed, their studio projects began with other founders, Darius Maghen, and Adeline Michèle. As old members leave and a new member joins, Escort continues on to establish themselves as the face of dance music. Their contemporary take on disco bring forth refreshing beats that intertwine perfectly with past lead vocalist, Adeline Michele and new lead vocalist, Nicki B. As Adeline Michèle has left to focus on her own solo project, Escort is set to release a new album, City Life on April 12th.
Last month, Escort released a single called, “City Life” featuring Fonda Rae on chorus and Nicki B. as lead vocalist. This single makes this a special debut for Nicki B. The collaboration between Escort and Rae showcases a dance party throughout the city describing the type of night where you groove with your friends until the sun comes out. The track gives off renewed vitality and simultaneously displays both Escort’s and Rae’s eclectic musical styles.
Escort is set to take over the stage at The Echo on April 26th. Buy your tickets here and listen below to “City Life” featuring Fonda Rae!
