Review: Internasjonal pull a curveball with the delightful afro house stylings of "Tembezi" from the unheralded Ackin'. Featuring the poignant vocal talents of M. Akamatsu, there are multiple charms to "Tembezi" which brandishes the sort of richly textured rhythms and melancholic piano improvisations that can't help but encourage the movement of feet. This being an Internasjonal release there is an accompanying Prins Thomas remix that winds down the tempo to a more cosmic level without losing any of the original's tinkling delights, but our favourite thing about this release is the final remix from 3 Chairs originator Marcellus Pittman. Adopting a bumpier note, Pittman's talent for crafting emotive synth melodies and dubbed piano chords shines through with positively incandescent results.

Review: Since appearing on Nang back in 2009 with the well-received "Free Flight" single, Russian duo Acos Coolkas have quietly built a name for themselves as a reliable source of melody-driven nu-disco. This EP for regular home Theomatic holds few musical surprises, but there's still plenty to admire. With its warm Rhodes chords, bright synth melodies and head-nodding midtempo grooves, "Solar Wind" is every bit the stargazing nu-disco groover its name suggests. "Planetarium" slows the pace further, sounding like a Russian take on Krystal Klear or Bestboygrip. A pleasingly melodic EP draws to a close with "Lunokhod 2", a bubbling chunk of intergalactic disco.

Review: This great value five-tracker sees former Swedish Brandy producer Opolopo launch a new moniker, Actual Proof. Musically, it offers a slightly more varied diet than his previous work, variously touching on deep house futurism (the rather quite spellbinding "Huff & Puff"), bubbling, sub-aquatic deepness (two excellent mixes of future late night staple "Hubble") and gritty, stripped-back disco/deep house fusion (two dubby versions of lead cut "The Grit"). As usual, it's all immaculately produced, offering the sort of far-sighted but groove-centred deepness that always impresses dancefloors. This boy will go places.

Review: You remember Adamski, right? He's the keyboard wizard who launched the career of Seal with rave anthem "Killer", before vanishing into obscurity via a series of attempted comebacks. Here he is, back again, with a piano-bashing, in-your-face, synth-heavy nu-disco burner that samples a familiar, 80s electro-era vocal. Attar remixes, taking the track further into student haircut disco-rave territory. Sweaty. Arguably better still is the cut-up synth silliness of "Wot Happened To U", a kind of Italo/Hi-NRG/electrofunk/rave hybrid. Blackjoy provides a brilliantly fuzzy, MDMA-tinged remix, while Mirror People contribute a chunky nu-disco version. Worth checking!

Review: Having made a tantalising appearance on the excellent Music From Mathematics, Late Invitation make their debut release with three live tracks of retro-vintage, house and boogie. Lost Brother, Crouch Dash and Millipede are a three piece outfit from Liechtenstein whose crazy names match their onstage attire. They have built their own, inimitable style that wafts in and around deep house but in a nu-disco, dubby, stepping kind of way. The title track is a warm piece of jacking, disco house led by fat, fuzzy kicks and smudged synth keys. Adding more charm, you cannot help but love the wonderfully simple piano that drops in halfway through. It is "The Late Invitation Theme" however, the track that appeared on the aforementioned Mathematics CD, where the low end beefs up in spectacular fashion. As the deep sub bass calmly squeezes along, warm synth stabs ease into the mix alongside a blissful guitar motif. Meanwhile "Thus" stretches itself out into an eight minute plus, vintage boogie edit. Full of warmth and emotion, this is a track perfectly suited to the morning after the night before.

Review: Aeroplane's Vito De Luca teams up with Chicago house legend Jamie Principle to deliver a killer chunk of electro pop that sits somewhere between classic, '80s house and noughties nu-Balearica. It's a great move calling on Principle, whose angelic voice has lost none of its heart string-pulling power some two decades after he made his name. Mysterious loop-house Tiger & Woods do their usual bang-up job on remix duties, teasing snippets of vocal and cut-up synths over a tight boogie-house groove. The package also includes a pair of deliciously touchy-feely reworks from Louis La Roche (woozy nu-disco) and Chopstick & Jolyon (Larry Heard meets Alfredo vibes). Highly recommended.

Review: Some would argue that Aeroplane's productions have not been the same since Vito De Luca and Stephen Fasano went their separate ways. While Fasano is rebuilding his career as The Magician, De Luca has been left to carry on producing and DJing as Aeroplane alone. Here he brushes aside criticism of his debut album with a debut mix set. It's actually rather good, offering a typically accessible and synth-heavy mix of groovy contemporary disco (Cosmonauts, Drop out Orchestra, Poolside), unreleased exclusives (his own, auto-tune heavy "Save Me Now") and forgotten gems (Stars On 33) that touches on curious Balearica, Italo and punk-disco. This digi version is available in its intended mixed form, but you can also buy the tracks featured individually!

Review: Nang proffer another fully stacked release - with No Logo the new project of Ibiza fixture Pete Gooding and Steve Miller aka chill out stalwart Afterlife. The first fruits borne of their new endeavour are the decidedly bossa centric thrills of "Party Animal" which is characterized by the suitably breathy vocal turn from Gallic singer Marion Benoist. Given the jazzy leanings of the source its little surprise the accompanying remixes vary in tone to quite a degree. Disco heads will no doubt be drawn towards the refix from Argentinean residing Toomy Disco, with a cowbell heavy groove embellished by one of the Romanian's best basslines to date. Gooding aims for the beachside bars on his effort whilst Andy Mowatt positions his remix for the terraces! The ever impressive Sioux City Boys win out however with a glitchy house refix that is reminiscent of the Electric Chair anthem "4 x 3" from Capoeira Twins.
