Review: For this 11th edition of the Whiskey Disco series, Sleazy McQueen has gathered together a series of decidedly loved-up re-edits, many with a real AOR feel. That's certainly the case with "Moonlight" - a wonky bundle of 6am sunrise hugs edited into shape by Yves Saint Lau'rant - and Anthony Mansfield's delightfully subdued "Cosmic Annie". There's some straight-up party flavours in the shape of Disco Tech's bumpin' rework of perennial Dolly Parton fave "Jolene", while Cole Medina successfully dubs out a deep house love song on "Your Love".

Review: San Fran man Tal M Klein could be described as a "serial collaborator". Here he offers up two more fine collaborations, one with fast-rising Soundcloud stars Irregular Disco Workers, and the other with regular muse Anthony Mansfield. "Slow Down", his showdown with the Irregular Disco Workers, is pleasingly Balearic; a shuffling, hands-aloft combination of slo-mo acid tweakery, drifting Harmonicas and piano house goodness. Think early Fila Brazilia meets Slow to Speak, and you're close. "Polk Street Stumblin", meanwhile, covers familiar Mansfield/Klein ground, offering a druggy analogue groove overlaid with weird noises and a killer double bass sample.

Review: Listening to "Mazellisimo" is an wonderfully odd experience. With its spooky tribal disco percussion, claustrophobic atmosphere and bubbling sequenced synths, it comes on like the soundtrack to a breathless chase through a haunted wood. Which, to our ears at least, is rather good. There's slightly less paranoia to be found on "SFO-EWR", which fuses a ragging electronic bassline with heavy percussion and woozy synths to excellent effect. "Disco Glitchery", meanwhile, offers a pleasing combination of shuffling, tech-tinged percussion, darting synths and more space noises than your average George Lucas flick.

Review: Four excellent new funk/soul/disco bombs from the Whiskey Disco label, with some surprising covers and peerless edits for your aural delectation. Anthony Mansfield sets about deconstructing a fresh cover of "Hercules" by Aaron Neville, while fans of Philly/Al Green-esque slow '70s funk will love Cosmic Boogie's soft-touch edit of "How Can You Say Goodbye". Rayko ups the tempo a little with his mix of the boogie wonder "S&M (Sexy Music), while WD label-head Sleazy McQueen has a lot of fun with Stevie Wonder's "Do I Do", looping up instrumental sections just right for a new perspective on this classic Stevie joint.

Review: San Francisco residents Tal M Klein and Anthony Mansfield have long since made music on their own. But following the success of their previous collaborations, the duo hook up once more on this enigmatically titled EP. Brought to us by Aniligital Music, "For Juan Five" takes us on a journey through cosmic disco via the three new tracks from the pair. "Ciento Ocho," meaning '108' in Spanish opens the release in exactly that tempo. With deep, stretched out, hollow bass parts built around the crawling beat and light percussion, we get an eerily building disco texture here. Half way through comes a big breakdown that unveils a funkier element to proceedings complete with a rolling bass hook. "Desayuno En Timpani's" takes us further into the their cosmic atmosphere. Space keys echo alongside heavy drum parts and weird, otherworldly sounding flat basslines.
Adding to the percussive theme, timpani drums feature throughout ensuring that the track never lets up its pace or purposefulness. Perfect for the bigger soundsystems, you get the sense that the bass from this one will resonate in the furthest reaches of the solar system. Finishing the release is "Bomba De Tigre" which goes even deeper using the duo?s sub bass fuelled cosmic submarine.
808 kicks and old school keys join 303 basslines to explode into a full scale house assault in a track that bridges the gap between cosmic and early house. Forging a truly unique sound for themselves, Tal M Klein and Anthony Mansfield continue to see success as a collaborative pair. The "For Juan Five" EP is simply them raising the stakes and digging deeper into their captivatingly unearthly sound palette.
