Music Musings: Erik Hassle ‘No Words’

They haven’t exactly burned up the charts, but make no mistake… the music industry has yet to give up its attempt at reviving Disco.

Some projects have been more successful than others.  Daft Punk, Pharrell and Nile Rodgers struck disco gold with 2013’s Get Lucky, while DJ Cassidy’s attempts at a full-blown disco album seem to be stalled out.

Despite copious pitfalls, new artists still see value in this electrified genre.  Bursting on to the scene comes Swedish Singer Erik Hassle, and his fresh mid-tempo jam No Words. To this point, Hassle hasn’t been well known outside of his native land or other parts of Continental Europe, but this latest tune could be the song that elevates the singer past his regional fan base.  As Idolator notes, Disco is a significant departure from Hassle’s previous musical endeavors.  But thankfully, the result is a sound that fits well for his voice and R&B vibe.

It’s kind of tough to describe, but have a listen to No Words by Erik Hassle.  Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.  If you’re a Neo-Disco fan, this is a tune not to miss, and it could be the one to break through.
