Discodeine (with Jarvis Cocker) - “Synchronize” MP3 (PopMatters Premiere)

[3 December 2010]

By Crispin Kott

Jarvis Cocker has always been a busy fellow, what with his various solo and Pulp endeavors and appearing in Harry Potter and Wes Anderson flicks and the like. But with the Pulp reunion still months away, how are we supposed to tide ourselves over in the meantime?

Fret not, friends. Cocker has lent his laconic vocal stylings to the new single by French duo Discodeine (a.k.a., Pilooski and Pentile, producers extraordinaire.)

“Synchronize” is pure sexy Eurodisco, with Cocker’s contribution nothing less than a beat-heavy, nerd happy come hither. The combination is clearly designed to get people moving their midsections in as suggestive a manner as any given dancefloor will allow.

But don’t take my word for it. Download the radio edit yourself and be transported into the swanky hidden pied-à-terre in the darkest corner of a Parisian discotheque.

“Synchronize” is out on DFA Records on December 6.
