It’s Time To Bring Back The Fun with 80’s big hair and ‘Dance Party’


Dance Party

“Too Hot Too Touch”

I grew up in the 80s, and that brings back some great musical memories: Listening to the Top 40 on the radio with my finger poised over the record button, waiting to capture my favorite track; listening to songs slow down as the batteries went flat on my Walkman; and, grooving away to the synth-driven funk of acts like Prince and Cameo at my local Blue Light disco.

Listening to Dance Party, I was instantly transported back to my youth and those wonderful memories. Too Hot To Touch is a new release but would you could be forgiven for thinking that this was the output of a young Whitney Houston.

And that ain’t a bad thing.

Starting with spacey, synth arpeggios, the track quickly finds its groove with big brass hooks and an irresistible bass that is topped off when the vocals kick in. And then there is the chorus that had me singing along before I had heard this out for the first time. This is a fun track played by musicians of the highest order and is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

Dance Party runs a “disco inferno” party series in their home city of Melbourne. I like to think that these parties are packed full of girls with big crimped hair and boys in stone-washed jeans and pastel shirts dancing like they have not a care in the world. Maybe that’s wishful thinking, but this track sure deserves it.


Simon says 5 out of 5 stars.

Dance Party Grooves its Way Back to The Future and “Too Hot To Touch”


Disco collective, Dance Party are set to release their latest single Too Hot to Touch to all major digital platforms today, 21st June 2019.

Too Hot to Touch was the first of many tracks to be written by the group, a song which lyrically represents exactly what Dance Party are all about. It started off with a clear 70’s sound but with the help of producer and synth player, Lewis Moody, the band brought it forward a decade. The single now sits somewhere in between 80’s pop and contemporary soul.

Dance Party are more than simply a group of musicians, they are an 11 piece made up of party specialists, bringing the disco back into Australia. The title of their upcoming track draws influence from their “disco inferno” party series that they run in their home city of Melbourne. These shows have sold out venues such as 170 Russell and Max Watts, on more than one occasion. For that reason, the band are renowned for their contribution to the cities live music scene.

Dance Party boasts some of Australia’s most sought after session musicians, some of whom have performed with the likes of Harts, City Calm Down, Client Liaison, Gordi, Ali Barter, Kian and Kingswood.

All 11 members of Dance Party take part in their live performance in which they run a 25 song songfest to their crowd, a truly unique way to bring their music to life. 

The band will performing TONIGHT at Night Cat, Melbourne on (June 21st,) keep up to date on their social media for more live dates.
