  4. It Beats The Music (6:32)
Review: Ant Plate of Rhythm Plate infamy has been putting out records under the deftly punned YSE Saint Laur'Ant name for the past four years, racking up 12"s for Whiskey Disco, Editorial, and Pickpocket that showcase his crate-digging, beat-chopping, soul-dripping expertise. Given that several of these records now command a pretty penny on the second hand market you'd be best advised to not dally when considering the merits of the latest YSE Saint Laur'Ant transmission for the newly minted Vinyl Only label. The Stonewall EP features four expertly teased exercises in low BPM bumps with closer "It Beats The Music" our pick of the bunch!

  1. Feel This Way (7:14)
  2. Party Train (5:50)
  3. Acid Indie Club (6:16)
  4. Sundown (5:59)
Review: Its feelgood, summertime disco house on the Feel This Way EP, by Belarusian DJ and producer from Grodno and reminiscent of DJ Sneak or Nick Holder's disco cut ups from the mid-nineties. There's some sure fire goodness for sunny day parties on the A side: From the hands in the air vibe of the title track, to the soulful funk groove of "Party Train". On the flip, things get a bit techier on "Acid Indie Club" which much like the name suggests has a warped synth lead that soon gives way to some wicked, big band disco style brass sounds. They leave the best 'til last on "Sundown" though, which you could imagine being played at exactly that time at one awesome beach party to remember.

  3. Ooh, Junior! (4:50)
Review: Mysterious new imprint, possibly connected to Bradley Zero's Rhythm Section International, presents us with some seriously smooth moods and grooves, courtesy of Junior. On the A side "Junior Does The Drums" does it right with its funky bassline and guitar licks, Rhodes piano and bongos getting totally freaky but in a good way, on this soul funk jam. On the flip there's "Junior Gives Thanks" which is an epic afro Latin percussion workout that will blow your mind, while "Ooh, Junior" is a druggy trumpet solo wandering mysteriously over a scratched up and forgotten bongo record. Check this out!

  1. Burning Disco (4:42)
  2. Flamingo (4:05)
  3. Mustang (6:20)
Review: After establishing his reputation as one of the re-edit scene's deepest diggers a few years back with a series of 12" singles on Ambassador's Reception, Swedish producer Albion Venables recently returned with an excellent EP of unlikely edits on Macadam Mambo. Here he returns home to Ambassador's Reception with another collection of high-grade disco reworks. As usual, you'd be hard-pressed to guess the source material, but there's plenty to enjoy. "Burnin' Disco" re-cuts a wonky Balearic pop gem as a startling fusion of dub disco, exotica and tough electrofunk, while "Flamingo" twists a similarly eccentric cut into a winding, Flamenco-disco gem. Finally, "Mustang" provides some deep, soulful and stretched out instrumental disco complete with evocative guitar solos, rubbery bottom end and killer synth solos.

  1. Sister Sledge - "Lost In Music" (Dimitri From Paris remix) (7:48)
  2. Sheila & B. Devotion - "Your Love Is Good " (Dimitri From Paris instrumental) (6:20)
Review: Classic edits from the godfather, both of these are almost as well known as the original versions themselves and have been highly sought after for many years. "Lost In Music" gets the dreamy extension it always deserved as Dimitri applies a great sense of groove tension, letting each element run and run without restraint while "Your Love Is Good" enjoys full focus on the instrumentation as Dimitri limits the vocals to the choruses to dramatic effect. Unadulterated disco bliss.

  1. Rhythm Is All You Can Dance (5:58)
  2. Rhythm Is All You Can Dance (Wolf Muller remix) (6:02)
  3. Revanche (5:46)
Review: Africaine 808's first EP for Phil South's Golf Channel label, the double A-side Lagos, New York/Zombie Jamboree, was arguably one of the releases of 2014 - a sublime 12" that joined the dots between Konk, early Latin house, techno and Afro-disco. Hopes are naturally high, then, for this follow-up. "Rhythm Is All You Can Dance" is not as instantly effective as either of those tracks, but it's still rather special - think darting, woozy synthesizers, spitting drum machines and dense African percussion. Jan Schulte provides the obligatory remix under his Wolf Muller alias, dropping a bouncier groove whilst emphasizing Africaine 808's woozy synthesizer lines. Bonus cut "Revanche" is rather special, too, and recaptures some of the celebratory feel of last year's terrific 12".

Review: As Benedikt Rugar's superbly illustrated cover art for the recent CockTail D'Amore compilation Nothing Matters When We're Dancing proved, the Berlin collective proudly celebrate their status as a forum for Berlin's gay community to fully express themselves. With no releases on the label since that compilation arrived in January, Discodromo and DJ Boris have now unveiled a sister operation with a focus on edits under the wonderful name CockRing D'Amore. The debut release features contributions from label regular Massimiliano Pagliara, the unheralded Trent and founders Discodromo.

  4. Last Night (6:03)
Review: Back In The Day marks the second appearance from Local Talk regulars Dirtytwo on J Kriv and Aaron Dae's Razor 'N' Tape imprint. Like their last outing, Back In The Day sees them offering up an impressive blend of bumpin' house and filter-heavy re-edits with a heavy emphasis on party starting. While the murky, basement-bothering title track, and Daniel Leeseman's baggier, disco-house rework, are impressive, it's the EP's other two tracks that are really floating our boat. Check, in particular, the string-laden, bass-heavy sleaze of "Last Night", which boasts a spine-tingling breakdown and some decidedly sweaty female vocals. That said, the slower "Estrelar" - a chopped-up, looped, filter-fiddling rework of the Marcos Valle track of the same name - is also rather fine.

  3. Every Person (7:04)
  4. Standing Passengers (5:08)
Review: Chicago Nite Owl Chrissy returns with four more floor-focussed revisions that cater for all chapters of the night. Space jam "Discoglide" is the quintessential party starter, all whistles and crowd chants. "Fix It Man" takes tool-swinging Ragtyme into the future while "Every Person" explores the soulful nuances of Double Exposure with gossamer glee. Finally we climax with the bass-slapping super-strutter "Standing Passengers". A full instrumental rich in percussion and snake-like wah wahs and tightly sprung horns, there'll be standing room only when you drop this.

  1. Confrontation (3:46)
  2. You & Me Babe (4:20)
Review: The Athens of the North label is a blessing for those whose tastes in soul, funk, disco and boogie tend towards the obscure and ludicrously hard-to-find. Their latest re-issue fits into both categories. Seemingly the only single they ever released, "Confrontation" came out in 1981 on Arista but copies have since proved incredibly hard to find; so hard, in fact, that original 7" singles now change hands online for nearly L300. The title track, produced by A Taste of Honey's Perry Kibble, is brilliant, though, delivering a soulful, heartfelt disco-funk jam full of smooth backing vocals, bubbling clavinet lines and deliciously righteous horns.

  1. Power Theme
  2. Power Theme (Ess O Ess remix)
  3. Le Clerc
  4. Le Clerc (The Backwoods remix)
Review: London based "Bad Passion Project", aka Chris Stoker (Ess O Ess) and Andy Bainbridge (Machete Savane), finally unveil their new record label, "Not An Animal Records".??For their first release, they present an EP from friend and frequent collaborator "Man Power" (Correspondant, Hivern Discs), featuring 2 original productions, as well as stellar remixes from "The Backwoods" aka DJ Kent (Force of Nature) & Ess O Ess.?

The first track on display is "Power Theme", a stomping and bouncing hybrid of Left-field Techno and Synth-Pop, which builds to a dramatic Italo tinged melodic climax.

Following this, the Ess O Ess remix, from Chris and Jamie Blanco, further stamps their distinctive sound, taking the track on a trip into organic techno territory.

With his second track, Le Clerc, Man Power presents yet another musical mongrel, this time with a blend of robotic, arpeggiated disco, meeting fuzzed-up and over-blown heavy rock pomp.

The Backwoods swaps the original's brashness of Le Clerc for lightness, depth and beauty, stripping the track back to its melodic components, adding percussive counter-melodies and underpinning everything with a hypnotic and pulsing house baseline.

  2. Harlem (8:23)
Review: Fresh from editing the Dickens out of "O Superman" and "Pump Up The Jam", Bremen beat-carver Jascha gets busy on Fela Kuti and Bobbi Humphrey. "Soldiers" sees Hagen retaining all of Kuti's vocal command over a dubby Lindstromm-esque groove that pays off with delicious keys on the breakdown. 'Harlem', meanwhile, adds a lush brushed drum backing to Bobbi with extensive psychedelic textures and a lolloping groove that's not dissimilar to Andrew Ashong. Stunning.

Review: AOTN have done it again... "You Done Let The Daylight Catch You" shines with a smooth sun-kissed Bobby Caldwell-style groove with polished harmonies while "Smoke In The Disco" runs with a tight, party-chanting funk that's up there with Sly & The Family Stone. Previously spotted passing hands for four-figure sums, second Resurrection couldn't be a more apt name. Label of the year surely??

  2. Stop, Don't Let The Beat (5:42)
Review: London's Midland, known to his friends as Harry Agius, is a producer of many layers and talents; the most recent of which is the cultivation of a moustache that would make a WWWII bombardier proud! He's pretty much released an electronic track from every genre, and now he's decided to dabble in a bit of disco through his new Regraded imprint, an offshoot of Graded. "Double Feature" is a lovely, heads-down disco monster with a heavy percussive swing and gorgeous strings running through its core. Over on the flip, "Stop, Don't Let The Beat" still leans towards the disco ball, but the groove is now nastier, more driving and deeper into the electronics. Class.

  4. Radio Romans (5:51)
Review: Aussie imprint People Must Jam have pulled off something of a coup here, enticing Polish twosome Ptaki away from Transatlantyk for a one-off, four-track outing. It is, of course, superb, with the duo delivering some typically picturesque, "Baltic beat" business in the shape of the glistening "Termy" - all eyes-closed acoustic guitar solos, starburst electronics, late night vocals and fluid synthesizers - and chugging "Radio Roman". Elsewhere, though, the duo goes surprisingly uptempo, via the jazzy deep house bump of "Lotnik" and, even more impressively, "Milosc". The latter - a chopped-up, Thomas Bangalter style disco-house rework of a long forgotten Polish disco-funk gem - is easily Ptaki's most obviously floor-friendly release to date.

Review: For their second 12", recently launched edits imprint Wall of Fame has assembled a crack team of internationally renowned edit fiends. Australian Dr Packer delivers a bustling house interpretation of Instant Funk's synth-laden Paradise Garage five "Just Because You're Mine", before Evil Smarty gives Tata Vega's brilliant disco classic "Get It Up For Love" a similarly house-friendly renovation. Flip for Fingerman's looser, party-starting "Boogie Change Up" - all dubbed-out horns, sparkling synths, sweet vocals and extended drum breaks - and "Let It Go", a curious but rather impressive R&B cut-job from Brooklun-based P-Sol. All four tracks sound like tried-and-tested killers for those who prefer their disco on the housier end of the spectrum.

Review: Tel Aviv's Dori Sadovnik and Niv Arzi have been making music together under the name Red Axes for four years now, and freeform blend of electronic expressionism has seen them release on everything from Klasse Recordings to Hivern Discs. This month they return to the I'm A Cliche imprint, and they've conjured four mystical dance tunes that fall on the edges of disco. "Shem" is an ominous ballad made of dreary electronics and a tick-tock percussion, and "Oh Key" is similarly clown-like in its choices of odd sonics - a truly singular piece of instrumentation. "Sweet John Gang" is a nu-school boogie kind of monster, whereas "More More & More" is a fuzzy house jam with a delicious blend of dubby melodies. Out there tunes!

The Kaczence 12" features two tracks from the Das Komplex debut reworked in splendid style by Rune Lindbaek & Helen Rickhard and U-Ka respectively. In the hands of the former pair, "Like A Fish" is transformed into a true anthem for the modern Balearic dancefloor, whilst U-Ka bring their space disco stylings to "Siren". What was originally a slow burner epic is now a searing exercise in electronic disco! Closing out proceedings is the title track, and a fresh 16 minute (!) Das Komplex production which can only be described as a dub disco monster! Another sure shot for artist and label!

  1. Tai - "Schlager"
  2. Fattish - "Democrat Fatigue"
  3. Miajica - "RIP Pino"
Review: Fleeting Wax is a new label by Basel DJs Mehmet Aslan and Miajica from Alma Negra, whose fame has spread far and beyond Switzerland. The EP contains three striking edits from the reaches of what could be considered world disco in the widest sense of the word. It's fair to say that this is the embodiment of a now-familiar Basel sound - all sultry playfulness, Turkish delights and sun-drenched pop-not-pop. The first is Tai's "Schlager Edit", built on a combo of hypnotic Marimba-dreaming and that irresistibly sugary voice. Istanbul digger DJ Fattish immerses himself into the singer-songwriter wealth of his country. And label co-owner Miajica weds Italian cantautore passion to the dancefloor. With it's first release, Fleeting Wax clearly lives up to it's romantic promise: Unearthing forgotten relics and infusing sleeping beautys with new life.

Review: Whiskey Disco has put together something of an all-star cast for their latest excursion, with the mighty Jacques Renault - whose debut album drops soon on Let's Play House - and dusty-fingered scalpel fiend Kon amongst the contributors. The latter's "Promised Land" re-edit is a swirling chunk of rising disco bliss, with dreamy female vocals and twittering flutes riding an undeniably heavy - if deliciously loose - disco-funk groove. The lesser-known Love Dance impresses, too, with the Philly style heaviness, cut-glass strings, hustling grooves and impassioned vocals of "Who Is He". It's Renault who steals the show, too, dropping the delightfully camp, intergalactic dancefloor madness of "Disco Galaxie" - all starry synths, clavinet-laden grooves and madcap vocals.

Endeavours, their fourth such exercise, is as likeable as its' predecessors. Loosely based around a modern boogie, synth grooves and modern funk ethos, it contains a string of highlights. These include the deep, Dam Funk style synth-boogie bounce of Harvey Sutherland's "That's The Fact, Jack", the sparkling '80s soul-goes-boogie revivalism of XL Middleton's gorgeous "One & Only", some vintage Bobby Konders style deep house goodness from Moon B, and a typically atmospheric chugger from Timothy J Fairplay.

Igniting as he means to go on, each cut shakes and struts with distinctive aspects of Daniele's signature style: "Thyratron" is a ballroom jazz anthem-in-waiting with lavish piano splatters over an insistent disco chug, "Diffrazione" takes us much deeper into Baldelli's psyche with soaring, heavily processed guitars and synths freaking out over a pulsating bulbous bass bed while "Inner Light" brings us back into reality with a mildly Nordic piece of pop-oriented disco, all sensual, breathy vocals and a twinkling synth groove.
