Paris-based Andres Komatsu should be familiar to those who like their electronic music bold, chugging and intoxicating. He's previously released on Nukod and Truth Underground, amongst others, and here makes his debut on the Nein Records label operated by scene stalwart Tronik Youth. There are two original productions to enjoy: the strobe-friendly, analogue disco sharpness of "Carcosa", and "Alban", a deepier, prettier and altogether more saucer-eyed take on the saucer-eyed, Italo-influenced nu-disco sound. Both tracks are also given the remix treatment. Tronik Youth makes "Carcossa" even rougher and heavier, mixing the original's throbbing melody lines with chunkier drums, before Gladkazuka re-interprets "Alban" as a distorted, analogue techno stomper.
Peza is a shady re-edit hero, whose previous releases have created all kinds of a stir in the disco world. This latest EP, Subway, for the esteemed Midnight Riot, has already notched up some serious pre-release support from the likes of Andy Weatherall and Horse Meat Disco. One listen to the four tracks included here and you can tell why - we get everything from some slowed-down Eurythmics ("Stranger") to the deep and spacey funk grooves of "You Ain't Never" via the female disco/clavinet interface funk of "Do You Have Any?".
