Review: There's something oddly foreboding about "Won't Let Go", the latest single from Crazy P man Chris "Hot Toddy" Todd's Late Night Boogie LP. While the original itself - a typical Todd style fusion of 80s electro-funk elements, deep house and the vocals of longtime Crazy P chanteuse Danielle Moore - is faintly threatening, it's the Black Strobe remix that really ups the paranoia factor. It's far more in-your-face, for starters, and the addition of some ragging acid lines adds an anthemic slant to proceedings. Erdbeerschnitzel's remix, meanwhile, is almost the polar opposite - all crackly, dubbed-out deep house grooves, off-kilter old skool riffage and cosmic vibes.

Review: Former Slovenian techno pioneer Sare Havlicek has enjoyed a new lease of life since shacking up with Tirk offshoot Nang and re-focusing on sun-drenched nu-disco. This single features tongue-in-cheek Balearic lounge groover "White Russian (Lazy Summer)" - see the silly electric guitar solos and soaring strings of the Cocktail Mix - getting remixed by Loveunlimited, Max Essa and Chris Coco. While the latter's mix is probably destined for a million "Chill Out" comps, Essa and Loveunlimited provide smart and pleasingly melodic nu-disco rubs. The latter's string-drenched electro-funk version is probably the pick of the EP, but Essa's more uptempo take isn't far behind.

Review: Munich's excellent Permanent Vacations nudge towards a century of releases with a typically warm EP of huggable electronic grooves from the unpredictable Tevo Howard. Epic opener "Pump & Bounce" is the stand out cut. Built around a heady, intoxicating fusion of melancholic chords, tactile synths, stargazing melodies and seemingly cheap electronic sounds, it rises and falls for an impressive nine minutes. "You Have A Way With Words" spits and jumps with fuzzy machine rhythms and low-slung synths, while the hypnotic rhythms and crystalline arpeggios of "What Is Sound" are stunning in their emotion-rich simplicity. "Content (Dawn Mix)", on the other hand, is just beautiful. Bravo, Tevo, bravo!

Review: What really impresses about this new Headman single is the bulging remix package. While the original version of "Turning" is quality - think eyeliner clad no-wave goes down the disco -the remixes take it to thrilling new places. Take your pick from The Emperor Machine's epic analogue dub-disco, Scott Fraser's Brown Album-era Orbital tribute (the "Basement Riposte" mix), Murphy Jax's delightfully E'd-up retro-futurist house take (thrillingly analogue and breezily upbeat) and a typically sludgy reinterpretation from Richard Fearless and Death In Vegas that's the stuff of blood-stained nightmares. It's the latter - as formidable and spooky as ever - that really stands out.

Review: As well as providing the smallest nation to compete at this year's World Cup, Slovenia has a nu disco icon in Sare Havlicek. The producer is no newcomer either, having started making music when Slovenia was still called Yugoslavia. We can thank Tirk offshoot Nang for bringing the analogue hoarder to our general attention with "Toscana Nights", a splendid debut album for the imprint. Supposedly completed without the usage of samples or loops, Havlicek has crafted thirteen songs full of warm synths and crisp instrumentation. From the throbbing synth grooves that run through the opening title track and the vocoder assisted "UFOs Are Real" to the more classic Philly sound of "White Russian", it's clear Havlicek knows his disco onions. Working in tandem with vocalist Hannah Mancini, Havlicek crafts some sultry diva anthems in "Dreams In Light" and the low slung boogie of "Pleasure Storm" with the latter a real highlight of a marvellously executed album.

Review: Thisnotanexit Recordings waste little time - barely months after dropping a label retrospective in the glorious 2CD edition Manifesto#1, the imprint are back with a four track Summer Sampler giving eager listeners a glimpse at what the future holds. First up for the disco heads is Faze Action taking on Hatchback's 'Jetlag' and delivering a truly bouncy summer jam - best work from the Lee brothers in some time. Providing the requisite intrigue are Command V - consisting of band members from punk funk icons Bush Tetras and B52s - 'Hello' is their first (and aptly titled) appearance on TINAE and they get transformed into sultry low slung mutant disco by Moscow aka Matt Waites (watch out for future remixes of Command V from Optimo and Jacques Renault). TINAE acts Club Silenco and The Dark Esquire team up on 'You Got To Look' a jagged industrial post punk stomper. Last but by no means least is the superlative Urlaubshits Minimal Rave remix of Detachments' classic 'The Flowers That Fell' which veers off in a very Kompaktesque direction with stunning results.

Review: Hailing from Romania, Razvan Ghenciu is keeping on the disco pressure, releasing yet another in a sizzling string of recent EPs. He very cleverly manages to straddle the divide between nu-disco and house: "This Time" is slow, synth heavy Balearica with lashings of melancholia and "Big Fever" is all about the boogie stabs, funky basslines and bongos. Remix-wise it's all about the totally 90s Ruben and Ras New York Kitty mix of the former.
