CC:DISCO! SHARES STEADY
WEATHER & MOUNT
FROM FIRST LIGHT (VOL II)
COMPILATION – OUT FRI 7 MAY
Soothsayer reveal the next two tracks cherry picked by beloved Melbourne DJ, CC:DISCO! for the second instalment of her First Light compilation series, out Friday 7 May. This time taking centre stage is Melbourne-duo Steady Weather with their disco-house banger ‘Burning So Hot (feat. Allysha Joy)’, and Swedish outfit Mount Liberation Unlimited with their club-ready track ‘Debagungar’. To celebrate the compilation’s release, CC:DISCO! and Soothsayer have also announced a special day-to-night soiree at Port Melbourne’s iconic Timber Yard on Saturday May 15th.
‘Burning So Hot (feat. Allysha Joy)’ is the debut single from Steady Weather, the Melbourne duo made up of revered jazz, soul and funk musicians Ben Grayson and Tamil Rogeon. Rogeon just released an alternative jazz album titled, Son of Nyx, which attracted the attention of BBC6 Music garnering a ‘In Session’ live recording with Cerys Matthews, as well as being named feature album on PBS. The masterfully sultry vocal performance is courtesy of Allysha Joy from the 30/70 collective [Rhythm Section International], and brings a Róisín Murphy-esque edge to the production. The track is a highlight from First Light (Volume II) and CC:DISCO! is more-than-excited to shine focus on this promising new act:
“I remember being sent ‘Burning So Hot’ and being quite floored, (with my) jaw to the floor by the time it finished. The vocals and that bassline are so banging, it’s made for 4am sweaty club dancefloors.”

Mount Liberation Unlimited also join the First Light family with the fun and energetic earworm ‘Debagungar’. Based in Sweden, Mount Liberation Unlimited make joyous house and disco music and have worked with the likes of New York’s Beats In Space Records (Andras, Tornado Wallace), Melbourne’s Superconscious Records (Problem-child of Fantastic Man and Francis Inferno Orchestra), Munich’s Permanent Vacation and Sweden’s Studio Barnhus (Axel Boman, Laurence Guy, BellaBoo). CC:DISCO! is proud to welcome the well-known and highly respected group in the global electronic scene to Volume II of the compilation.
CC:DISCO!: “MLU once again serve up some serious vibes on ‘Debagungar’ with a wobbly, stabby synth heaven club track. Ready to serve on dancefloors across the world when the time is right, from Paris to Berlin and every discotheque in between…”
