Review: You know what you're getting from Germany's Satin Jackets. Offering a breezy take on nu-disco heavily influenced by '80s synth funk, glittery pop and classic piano house, their tracks are fun and accessible, but well produced enough to impress the heads. This single for Pole Position is arguably one of their strongest yet, a touchy-feely, near Balearic chunk of synth-laden disco-pop that should boost their profile no end. The original version - featuring a weary but engaging vocal - is arguably the pick, though Satin Jackets own remix, reminiscent of Regret-era New Order, is also excellent. In summary... summery (you're fired - Ed).

Review: Those with a penchant for glistening soundscapes and hazy Balearica will already be aware of decidedly cosmic production duo Seahawks. Having impressed with a handful of acclaimed 12" singles, Invisible Sunrise marks their first attempt at mastering the art of the full-length. As debut albums go, it's hugely impressive, shuffling between sun-blushed fusions inspired by yacht-rock, classic ambient, cosmic disco, AOR, Peter Green-ish blues, dub, Animals-era Pink Floyd and, of course, curious Balearica. Most of the tracks barely get above a horizontal pulse, but their sound selection and composition is first class. One for those fuzzy post-club moments where you just want to lie down and zone out.

Review: Future Disco compiler Sean Brosnan gets the once over from a pair of Nu-Disco dons on his debut release. Brosnan's original of Sat Jam pools together awesome bass, some classy dub effects as well as a sure-footed groove. Ray Mang snatches up the A-side with his mix though - a spellbinding rerub that takes it's time to drop but keeps you hooked with it's tight piano-house motif and cosmic production. Man of the moment Eddie C also takes Sat Jam to task, going much deeper than the original and dropping the bpm's down slightly for a more soulful and blissed-out version.

Review: Needwant’s popular Future Disco series reaches its fourth volume, with another epic trawl through some of 2010’s biggest Neon tinged late night bombs. It’s the first section that impresses most, offering a thrill-a-minute journey through low-slung contemporary New York disco, breezy nu-disco and even touching on house. The tracklist is a little heavy on the admittedly brilliant but already familiar (Jacques Renault’s ubiquitous take on Midnight Magic’s "Beam Me Up", Greg Wilson’s remix of Escort and "Look Right Through", Morgan Geist’s debut as Storm Queen ), but scratch beneath the surface and you’ll find superb, lesser-known tracks and mixes. Particular highlights include the superlative Gadi & Soul Clap tweak of 80s Boston act Bad Rabbits, Filippson & Ulysses emotive ode to John Carpenter and Bonar Bradberry getting reshaped by Pete Herbert.

Review: For those with a penchant for the blurred boundaries between house, nu-disco and contemporary electrofunk, the Future Disco series has always been a reliable source of high quality material. This fifth volume continues that trend, offering up a two-disc selection (one disc mixed, the other unmixed) that has squidgy synth basslines, slick pads and warm electronic melodies seeping out of every digitally encoded groove. While there are plenty of scene anthems present (Tiger and Woods remixing Tensnake, Classix reworking Cosmic Kids, Benoit & Sergio's ace "Principles"), there's plenty of lesser-known fare to excite the nerds - not least some thrilling contributions from fast rising house/disco fusionists Maxxi Soundsystem and Bonar Bradberry.

Review: Sean Brosnan's long-running Future Disco series has always been a good barometer of the nu-disco scene at any given point in time. This sixth volume continues the trend, offering up a selection that reflects the current fixation with disco, nu-disco and electrofunk-influenced house. So, we get Crazy P's Futureboogie-influcned "Heartbreaker", a Maceo Plex remake of Laura Jones, the Garden Festival-inspired late night slippiness of Greymatter's "Tisno", and even a dash of Hypercolour-era Groove Armada. Best of all, though, is the most obviously disco-centric track of all: Bonar Bradberry's Tiger and Woods-inspired Change cut-up, "Loose Grip".
