A product if the burgeoning underground house / DJ scene of Los Angeles, singer/producer Henri springs forth with her “I See Ice Cream” EP. Consistently of four tracks, Henri’s EP features two infectious melodic house singles including the title track and “Fine Day,” an elegant cover of Opus III’s 90s cult classic. Henri’s version features Icelandic actress / singer Aníta Briem’s hypnotic, breathy vocals layered over an interweaving synth arpeggio and repetitive piano chords that together create blissful state of trance. “I See Ice Cream” takes on a more euphoric tone with more psychedelic synth sounds.  Overall, it’s an impressive debut for Henri.

We asked her to put together some of her favorite disco / house songs to get your weekend going. Enjoy!

Pachange Boys – Time

“One of the best songs ever made. It sucks you in and takes you on a journey.”

Miguel Campbell – Something Special

“It’s all about that hypnotic repetitive vocal.”

Indila – Derniere Danse

“I discovered this on Sofi Tukker’s mixtape. Every song on there is good. I think I’ve played their track Drinkee in every set this year.”

The Orb – Little Fluffy Clouds

“The spoken word lyrics in this track have been a huge influence on a lot of my music.”

Psychemagik – Mink & Shoes

“For the saw bass synth sound. It’s killer!”

Petite Meller – Baby Love (Kiwi Remix)

“It makes me wanna swing my arms and jump up and down every time I play it out. Perfect for this roller disco warehouse party I used to DJ in LA with people rollerskating round and round in circles making shapes with their light bulb- and glow-in-the-dark outfits.”

Max Cooper – Harmonische Serie

“Could listen to this on repeat for the rest of my life. It’s so beautiful and the chord changes move my soul.”

Anabel Englund – London Headache

“Love Anabel. This is a really fun disco track to play out.”

Dolly Parton – Jolene (Todd Terje Edit)

“I get such a kick out of playing this edit every time. Everything Todd Terje touches is gold!”
