Who doesn’t know Discoria? The duo Merdi Simanjuntak and Fadli Aat are responsible for bringing pop-disco music back to the dance floor arena today. Previously, they made projects with Dian Sastro, Eve Celia, and Joe Taslim. Now, it’s the turn of veteran actor Tara Basro and trio Fleur! who was lined up as his collaborator in the latest song entitled “Suara Disco”.
This collaboration is not the first time for Diskoria and Fleur!, at the end of last year Diskoria with Yuyi and Tanya from Fleur! had worked on a song sung by Diskoria, Fathia Izzati and Joe Taslim entitled “Simfoni Rindu”.
However, this collaboration, Diskoria seems to have its own challenges. How not, given the differences in the three genres, Diskoria with its pop-disco feel, Fleur! with her 60s Rock n Roll, while Tara has an interest in soul and RnB music. This difference makes this collaboration even more interesting, how they look for a common thread from the third genre to become an interesting work to listen to, and of course because this song must be completed in less than 24 working hours. Not only that, the Pop Studio team also gave the title of this song “Suara Disco” for collaborators to work on. This song is expected to become a party anthem after the pandemic ends later.
After various processes were carried out, from brainstorming, jamming, lyric writing to recording with effective execution, and assisted by several colleagues namely Achi Hardjakusumah on strings, then Jordy Waelauruw on Brass and Rizky on keyboards, they were finally able to finish this song with a total processing time. approximately 22 hours.
After the song “Suara Disco” was successfully completed, Diskoria entrusted Michael Killian to visualize this work as a video clip director, and it had to be worked on within 1 week since the song was finished.
