Up next on Lamache’s Discobar label is a debut EP from PEOPLE PEOPLE, the collaboration of Gonzalo Perez Scartascini (a.k.a Gulp) and André Baum.

The pair’s relationship dates back to 2016 when they met in Berlin, Germany during a set from Ricardo Villalobos, and bonded over a shared appreciation for J.J. Cale, Massive Attack, and The Cure. They left the club, went to a studio, and promptly recorded “Shock & Awe,” which became the title-track to the EP.

Shock & Awe comprises two other originals plus a remix of the title-track by Villalobos, who takes the original four-minute song and flips it into a 10-minute Villalobos trip.

We’re told to expect a “genre-shifting record” that takes cues from synth-pop, techno, hip-hop, folk, and punk, and stands as an introduction to PEOPLE PEOPLE’s vision of the post-genre band.

The EP is Discobar’s 13th release, following EPs for The Mole and Cez, and its first of 2020.
