Review: Somnambulant sonic flavours abound as NY house duo make their debut on Southern Fried with "Stay Up Here". Swaying with delicate pianos yet pumping with a prominent acid hook and sparkling with Miss Bee's lush vocal, it's deep without any danger of limpness. Remix-wise both Bonar Bradberry and The Rhythm Odyssey deliver the goods. Bonar spaces things out a little and adds a trippier, more yearning edge to the groove while The Rhythm Odyssey (AKA Dean Meredith from Chicken Lips) dub-funks out the whole affair with a powerful synth bassline. Lovely.

Review: Judging by the inherent floating sensation that runs through "Just Think About It", it would seem that Lithuanian producer Mario Basanov has found his muse in Miss Bee. Regular followers of Under The Shade output will know the former has already worked his magic with the latter, having remixed her collaboration with Rampi earlier this year. It's a partnership that works wonders, with Miss Bee's sultry tones the perfect match for Basanov's elastic treatment of analogue sounds and upwards glancing melodics. The usual array of remixes sees Art Of Tones calling shotgun and delivering a remix that swerves proceedings down a decidedly rump shaking disco path, with some excellent key stabs throughout. This is matched by the Social Disco Club and Mirror People remix that builds brilliantly from the glistening opening few bars into an excellent live disco chug - just wait for those piano lines to come soaring in!

Review: Aspiring vocalist, Miss Bee, hasn't been shy lending her vocals to a host of dance-pop releases of late. Now however, she turns her hand back to her more rare solo outings. "Weak Knees" features a gentle, sun-bleached electro-house backing with a melody that's vaguely reminiscent of Mason's Exceeder. Complimenting the beats, Bee's jazzy voice comes on like that gal in Morcheeba, but it's the inclusion of a full-on shredding lead guitar that marks this tune as a bit out of the ordinary. Of the five remixes included here, its Eddie Mars' bouncy electro-house mix that's just pips the others at the post.

Review: Founded in 2011 by producer Jkriv, Brooklyn's Deep & Disco Recordings aims to provide an outlet for all that modern disco, soul and funk that's getting made right now. This single, their latest release, is a slice of super-mellow and laid back Balearic funk awash with the breathy vocals of Miss Bee. Accompanying the original is a complete spectrum of remixes the best of which include the piano-stabbin' Studio 54isms of the Moon Boots mix, and the Miami Vice synth paradise of the Arsenii alternate mix.

Review: Following a recent single on Deep & Disco, Monsoon Season are back, again with vocalist Miss Bee, on Glam Jam. Back too is their glacial, shimmering Balearic sound, with "Too Cold For Love" being a long and bouncey electro-house roller - a track that Manolo toughens up a little and drenches in beautifully sweet synths. Finally, Satin Jackets slow things right down for a dream-like synth odyssey that makes the listener dream of palm trees and blue skies.

Review: The newly rebranded Under The Shade come correct with the latest disco talent to surface from the prodigious shores of Italy. Rampi has form, having contributed bass duties to several tracks for The Heels Of Love and his debut solo endeavour certainly impresses. Revolving around a languid beat and an analogue bassline that gets stretched out brilliantly, "Feel It Burn" is made all that more special by the soft vocal turn from UTS acolyte Miss Bee. UTS regulars Ray Mang and Mario Basanov step up for remix duties - the former adds some crunch to the beat and really goes to town on that grinding analogue bass, whilst the Lithuanian goes for a glistening house refix that's underpinned by an electrofunk bassline Dam Funk would applaud. Furthermore, Bonar Bradberry dusts off his cowbell for an uptempo dextrous and thumping disco take on another Rampi production "Panzerotti" which should be filed under Class A Coconut Shaker.

Review: Having made his name with some impressive edits, Portugal's Social Disco Club is now pushing on as a producer of suitably atmospheric deep house jams. "Just One Touch" sees him pop up on the always reliable Under The Shade imprint with the sort of warm, touchy-feely, piano-heavy vocal that will have dancers reaching for the lazers in no time. As usual, Under The Shade are on-point with their choice of remixers. First, The Mekanism give the original some bumpin', garage-influenced swing - all fluid electric pianos and drawn-out chords - before Francis Inferno Orchestro goes all dark, tribal and intoxicating. With an instrumental thrown in for good measure, there's plenty to get excited about.
