Disco/pop singer Gavin Turek and 13-piece Los Angeles-based musical collective The Urban Renewal Project (URP) collab on “Armor Love,” a song that refreshingly fuses vintage soul and disco rock with jazz and deep funk beats.
This “modern disco anthem” deserves to be played loud on the dance floor and at everyone’s next house party.
The Urban Renewal Project is a 13-piece musical collective that brilliantly explores the boundaries between rock, pop, jazz, & hip–hop. Led by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist R.W. Enoch, Jr., The Urban Renewal Project creates a signature sound using instruments of a bygone era.
The URP’s forthcoming project is entitled 21st Century Ghost which is being called “their most ambitious to date.” The album was inspired by the profound isolation of this century. Enoch explains, “most of the songs discuss different side-effects of society’s efforts over the last 100 years to build a technology-fueled utopia and the ways in which these efforts, which sought to bring us together, have actually further isolated us.” The LP perfectly combines catchy melodies, a vibrant brass section and upbeat drums, while still conveying subtly profound and contradictory meaning. The LP in it’s own way diffuses the loneliness and isolation we all feel by “offering a little bit of something for every music fan inside—soul, disco, hip–hop, indie rock, funk, jazz and world fusion,” states Enoch.
