L.A.D are a synth funk trio from Reading with a shared love of 80s nostalgia. Multi instrumentalists Jack and Luke, having spent years accumulating vintage synths, guitars and drum machines, have teamed up with ginger bombshell Natalie to update the music they love. After spending the last six months making all kinds of noises in the studio, the debut album is due out later this year.
First up is ‘Dance Floor’; a homage to the disco sounds of their favourite era. A modern club classic with a simple message – dance! Listen here
This truly is one of those epic Top Of The Pops style classics reminiscent of Madonna at her very pinnacle circa ‘Holiday / Get Into The Groove’ when she had Nile Rodgers bringing that Chic style heat to the mixing desk and consequentially tearing off the roof at every club the world over, however there is still a freshness that UK RnB artists like Kelela and Ray BLK are bringing to the clubs owing much to this sound that is present here too.
L.A.D have done their homework, you could say just the way Daft Punk did a few years ago with throwback tracks like ‘Get Lucky’.
These guys are making some major sounds seemingly out of nowhere, but as Natalie exclaims on the track, “It doesn’t matter on the dance floor!”
