Review: With the weather getting warming and summer not to far away , you can almost taste the festival air and tracks like these from Finland's Jesse Oliver will have you even more excited for alfresco partying and evenings on the white Isle. 'Oceans' is a wonderfully emotive and warming progressive track with a bubbling bassline and a barrage of intricately layered melodies that will put an instant smile on your face. Music like this is good for the soul and is one to keep for when summer does land. 'Nicodemus' on the b-side is also well worth a play. A name to look out for this year, we are predicting big things.

Review: In this enduring age of shallow house and poorly executed "disco edits" you have to applaud labels like ESP Institute who keep veering down their own stylistic trajectory with little regard for trend or fad. Their latest release comes from a new name to us in Michael Ozone, a Melbourne based producer whose apparent interest in Giallo Horror soundtracks and New Beat is very much evident here. However it's the unique and absurdist way with which Ozone implements these influences across both "Perfect Systems" and "Hetropia" that grab your attention and have you flipping the needle back to the start again and again to try and cram every detail into your cerebral cortex. Both tracks get twisted in all new directions by Young Marco and Steve Summers; L.I.E.S. mainstay Summers tackles the title track, increasing the Italo drama markedly amidst loose drum programming and thick analogue bass and adding a further sense of menace via his own masked and echoed vocals. Complementing this, Rush Hour's secret weapon Young Marco retains the mysticism inherent in "Hetrotopia" but adds his own dense murky dub laden embellishments.

Review: Swedish electrofunk producer Odahl has been something of a go to man for Mullet in recent times, releasing a string of solid EPs and serviceable remixes. This four-tracker is another decent offering, too. "Out Of Control" itself is the real killer here, offering a slick combination of contemporary nu-disco chops and vintage, Prelude-ish synth funkery. Justin Faust provides the obligatory remix, laying down a straightforward electrofunk jam that rises and falls in all the right places. Bonus cut "Just Be Easy" offers some cascading melodies and far eastern charm, while Homon's remix provides bubbly nudisco grooves. Mullet's best for some time.

Review: Here, original 1970s jazz-funk/disco-soul combo Odyssey have been tempted out of retirement to re-record some of their best-known hits and fan favourites in the company of London producer Yam Who. They're lucky in some regards that they're in the company of a talented and sympathetic producer, because in the wrong hands "Legacy" could have been a dog's dinner. As it is, it works brilliantly, with now familiar favourites like "Use It Up & Wear It Out" and "Inside Out" given tasteful but distinctly different updates that should appeal to die-hard fans and newcomers alike.

Review: For disco heads, this Odyssey remix set should be an exciting prospect. Admittedly, the tracks being remixed are their 2011 re-recordings (originally seen on last summer's Legacy album) rather than the 70s and 80s originals, but don't let that put you off - especially as some of the reworks are superb. There's plenty of delightfully floor-friendly fodder on show, from Ray Mang's guitar-flecked re-invention of "Use It Up & Wear It Out" and Flash Atkins' Shaft-goes-dub-disco take on "Don't Tell Me Tell Her" to the everything-but-the-kitchen sink antics of Faze Action and DJD. While not every mix hits the spot, there's more than enough to warrant further investigation.

Review: Since recording all new versions of their classic hits with producer Yam Who, Odyssey seem to have enjoyed a new lease of life. Here, they cover disco classic "Weekend" with a little help from original New York mix-master John Morales (who, as part of M+M, remixed the Class Action version). Morales provides four versions; a full vocal mix that sounds like a cross between the Phreek and Class Action versions, a delightfully cowbell-heavy Vocal Dub, and two instrumentals. Good as these mixes are, they're put in the shade by Ashley Beedle's version, which opts for a more swinging groove and some brilliant piano solo action. There's also an excellent bonus in the shape of Crispin J Glover's tough but groovy Boogie Dub of "Inside Out".
