Further proof of the constant rise of Mexican post-disco (or should that be post nu-disco?) arrives in the shape of The End Has No End, a seven-track mini-album from Mexico City-based twosome Avanti. With a delightfully slow tempo, rubbery post-punk bass, dubwise effects and crazy industrial funk sax aplenty, it comes on like some kind of long lost early '80s Latin space funk masterpiece. There's plenty for those of a horizontal persuasion to enjoy, from the low-slung grittiness of "Take It" and smacked-out post Balearic groovery of "Final Discourse", to the weird-out guitars and stuttering synth-bass of "Dead End". Recommended.
Hard-working Denver based label Gazeebo International has become a must-check label in recent times, releasing a healthy slew of EPs and launching a sister label. Here they drop another bumper selection of tunes, this time from producer Avanti. The tracks that make up Night Flight offer various atmospheric takes on analogue nu-disco, from the deep and bubbling "Telesforos Journey" and uber-slow "Much Love" to the sparkling grooves of opener "Parallel Universe". Label bossman Gazeebo reworks the deep "Nuclear Baby", turning it into a breezy fusion of analogue Italo and waspish deep house.
