    "Walking out the door I jump into the eyes that judge me. They do not ask about my emotions, my touch, or my whisper. Can you believe there are millions of me? I stand in front of you speaking for all of those who are different, yet so likened to me. And to the world I thought wouldn't accept me, the people I was so sure I hated... I was wrong. All power to the people. With love and rage. Talk soon." - Cola Boyy

about

""Black Boogie Neon" est un condensé de tubes sur lesquels planent les spectres de MGMT et de Mac DeMarco" - Les Inrocks
"Soulful disco groove" - FADER
"Cola Boyy makes tracks that sit somewhere between MGMT or Tame Impala and the glittery sounds of Studio 54-era disco." - Noisey
"Cola Boyy feels inclusive and universal; like it was designed in-vitro for the dance floor" - i-D
"Fragmented disco meets luminous singwriting" - Clash
"Glorious funk infused disco with a mordern electronic twist" - Music Crowns

Just like fellow native Oxnard musicians Madlib and Anderson .Paak, Cola Boyy comes from a mixed black and white musical background: an obvious descendant of the Ghetto Brothers, a New York-based militant black and Hispanic band that blended together rock, soul and Latino music, all while trying to bring peace to the city’s gang war. He’s also greatly inspired by the funk and disco energy of Studio 54 and the Paradise Garage club, as well as the poetry and harmonies of his ultimate idol, Paul McCartney.

This first EP Black Boogie Neon weaves all of these influences together into five tracks that sound like a fun & funky foretaste of his upcoming 2019 album. Among these are:

“Penny Girl”, a soon-to-be disco powerhouse hit that relates the story of a crime of passion: as poetic as a McCartney song, as effective on the dancefloor as a Patrice Rushen groove, and as fun as Frankie Smith’s “Double Dutch Bus”.

“Have You Seen Her”, the EP’s kraut-disco oddity, halfway between the Ghetto Brothers’ rage and the funkiness of a Kurtis Blow instrumental... You’ll also hear a ripping guitar chorus and a Michel Berger-esque piano solo, all swaying to the beat.

“Buggy Tip”, the track that could have fallen into the hands of an eclectic DJ like Nicky Siano at Studio 54. Disco strings, catchy choruses to sing along to... Cola Boyy turns the melancholic memories of a past girlfriend into a banging beat to dance and shout to in a hot late-night club.
