Review: Given his track record in producing simmering slow jams and seductive grooves, you'd expect Cole Medina to be rather handy between the sheets. Regardless, he's at it again (arf) with another two-tracker packed with wide-eyed, loved-up grooves. "Close 2 U" is particularly delicious, offering a head-nodding chunk of 100BPM goodness that pairs seductive slo-mo disco grooves with filter-laden modern soul vocal samples. By the time it finishes, you'll be undressed, greased up and ready for action. The more upbeat "If I Ever" continues the R&B fixation, chucking select soul vocal samples over a hip wigglin' deep house groove and kissable chords. In a word: sticky.

Review: Following a couple of years when he's rocked more uptempo rhythms, Cole Medina makes a return to the sumptuous, soul-flecked sound with which he made his name. Both "Stay With Cole" and the gorgeous "Aint No Funq" recall the orgasmic, touchy-feely vibes of his infamous Bee Gees rework ("Cole Loves You Inside & Out"), working a glut of glossy, string-laden soul samples into steaming slices of slo-mo sensuality. "Cole's Just Crazy" throws some 80s soul into the pot for max end-of-night slow-dance pressure, but it's the other two tracks that really excel. Sexytime with Cole, anyone?

Review: Here's an interesting proposition from veteran disco/deep house fusionist Cole Medina, a man whose productions are rarely less than excellent. "Love For The Sake Of House" is particularly memorable, impressively fusing elements of Claudja Barry's slo-mo disco classic "Love For The Sake Of Love" with sturdy house beats and, most notably, a super-slick R&B accapella. It shouldn't work, but it really does. "Party Jam", meanwhile, ups the tempo, turning a forgotten P-funk number into a formidable chunk of contemporary dancefloor funk. With a thick electrofunk bassline, sweaty vocal stabs and some neat guitar cut-ups, it's a real winner.

Review: While Cole Media has always been capable of cranking out sweaty floorfillers, much of his best music bobs along at a more sedate tempo (remember that blissful smack-house dub of the Bee Gees from a few years back?). "What I Like (Is House Music)" bobs along at a head-nodding 112 BPM, offering a warm, melodic and organ-heavy fusion of deep house, sun-warm nu-Balearica and knowing garage revivalism. It's a pleasing combination. There are two more upbeat interpretations for those seeking bare dancefloor thrills. L'Equipe Du Son delivers a sax-laden homage to mid-90s New York house, while Reinoud van Toledon offers a mix of touchy-feely chords and tribal percussion.

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: House Arrest continue to put the ghetto back in house music by releasing both old and new tracks in high demand. This time it's owner DJ Medina Cole's classic "I?ll House You" and "Love Don?t Leave Me". Lush, deep house sounds join vintage vocals in this package that includes Down & Dirty remixes of both tracks
