NYC’s Escort delivers a danceable blend of disco, funk & soul which pay homage to the classics while remaining fresh and modern. Founded by Eugene Cho and Dan Balis and fronted by the enormous vocals of lead singer Adeline Michèle, the 17-piece ensemble turned heads with the release of their self-titled debut LP last year. On the heels of its success, Escort will release Escort Remixed on October 16th, which features a variety of new mixes and older classics. RAC takes on the band’s funk and soul-infused track “Starlight,” adding a smooth, seductive touch. You can download the “Starlight” (RAC Remix) MP3 where it premiered with Gawker today or HERE, and feel free to post & share.
Other highlights of the package include band member JKriv’s club-worthy remix of “Makeover,” complete with bouncing keys and handclaps and Black Russian’s synthy remix of the addictive “Caméleon Chameleon.Sub Swara reinterprets “All Through The Night,” transforming the song into a spaced-out track full of tribal beats, and Escort crafts their own instrumental mix of “Forever.”

With an infectious live show and a debut record that was named one of the “Best Albums of 2012” by both SPIN and Rolling Stone, Escort is ready to take over the US! Fans can catch the band on their first-ever East Coast tour this fall, including a Halloween show with St. Lucia in NYC. Don’t miss Escort’s energized live show coming to a city near you!
