Review: Given the quality of his dreamy, stargazing synth-wave and nu-disco productions, it was probably only a matter of time before Cosmic Metal Mother ended up on Prins Thomas' Internasjonal label. It's not hard to see why the Norwegian leftfield disco don snapped up "Italian Cowboy". Slow, synth-heavy and almost dizzyingly claustrophobic, it sounds like an experimental take of nu-Balearica. If you liked the looser, distinctly sunnier Windsurf releases on Internasjonal, "Italian Cowboy" should be right up your street. Thomas himself and Stallions provide the obligatory uptempo remixes, the latter delivering a Bobby O-goes-Nu-disco version that simply bristles with masculine intent.

Review: A real 'pick and mix' selection of re-edits and mash-ups here from newcomers Deadly Sins on the Giant Cuts Digital imprint. There's a touch of straight-up disco in the shape of "Keep It Hot", a neatly building, horn-heavy rework that never gets too loopy. Marvin Gaye's "A Funky Space Reincarnation" gets handily cut down on "Space Funk", while Metro Area and Soulsonic Force clash on the ever-so-cheeky mash-up "Metro Electro". The stand-out cut, though, is "Can't Stop", a smokin' Italo disco jam that boasts some particularly sweet electric piano riffage - think Bobby O fused with Shoom style piano house.

Review: Here we have another EP of smooth disco re-edits. "Nothing Beats The Music" is a classic Studio 54-era joint with tight funk guitar, big, funky bass and blissful chimes and female vocals. Only the slightest tweaks have been made to embellish this classy gem. "Can You Feel It" is an eye brow-raising version of Phil Collin's austere classic, In The Air At Night, now given a slow, Balearic stomp which surprisingly works! "Fever" is beautiful, dreamy cosmic disco with a melancholic vocal and "Movin, Don't Stop" is the kind of pulsating high energy stuff that soundtracked Stefanie Powers and Robert Wagner in TV's Hart To Hart!

Review: It's been a while since we've heard from notorious North London party-starter Deadly Sins. Here he returns to his Original Cuts imprint with an EP of floor-friendly, sample-heavy party-starters. There's plenty for disco-minded house DJs to enjoy, from the heavy electrofunk-meets-disco thump of "Keep Movin (DS Straight Ahead Mix)" and Rocco Raimundo-ish '80s soul slickness of "Out In The Night", to the filter-heavy, electric piano vibes of "So Delicious" and stomping "Satisfied". Opener "The Thrill", with its distinctive jazz-funk flute loop, is also worthy of consideration. Good stuff, all told.

Review: The Sccucci Manucci label has done a fine job of handpicking artists on the rise for their releases to date, collaring the likes of Casino Times, Francis Inferno Orchestra and Toomydisco as well as the odd established name like Jacques Renault. The label's fourth release Forza Quattro is still grounded in the disco/house sensibility that has served them so well, though the presence of Waze & Oddysey demonstrates the Sccucci A & R team are willing to deviate. The elusive US pair are in the midst of a hot patch right now with releases already burning on Body Work and Southern Fried and plenty more due over the coming months, so their presence here is a real coup. "I Can't Hear You" sounds vaguely like a extra bouncy cover of the classic "RIP Groove" and definitely ranks alongside their output to date. The EP also has tempo traversing contributions from Fil Lavin, Sellouts and Deadly Sins, with the latter's slow and chuggy "Don't You Know" a particular highlight.
