Ep by Olivier Boogie on Whiskey Disco Cue Track
You Know Who - (6:06) 106 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Dutch DJ and producer Olivier Boogie has been doing his thing in Amsterdam, largely without credit, for the best part of a decade. He's previously released both original productions and re-edits, with two contributions to a split Lumberjacks In Hell release back in 2012 standing out. Here he returns - at long last - with an edit EP of his own for Whiskey Disco. There's naturally much to admire, from the soaring strings, undulating bass and disco-funk hustle of "Got To Have Loving" and jaunty Rodriguez re-rub "Can't Get Away" being particularly potent. He also delivers a dash of head-nodding boogie ("You Know Who"), and turns a little-known funk jam into a shuffling house hustler ("Lost In The Crowd").

Review: Antipodean disco dabbler, Dr Packer, will see you now. He's now reopened his surgery and this fifth volume is simply bursting with stuff that's good for you. There are eight new jams in total including the cheeky pop ragga of "Sensi", the well-oiled bass machine "Get Down" and electro-funk squelcher "One For Me". A fine remedy for any disco related ailment!

from $1.49
Review: Hailing from Mexico, The Funk Disco District are on a mission to spread good vibes courtesy of impossibly slick 'sample based music...made to move people all around the world". Here, through Hotbox Records, they deliver their three latest jams - the deliciously fluid and jazzy Latin-disco-isms of "I'm Gonna Get You Baby", the uber slick, spacey disco-cocktail-house of "Get On Down" and the sumptuously languid Balearica of "Feelin' Alright". Smart!

Review: Disco never dies, and as such it's a real pleasure to see veteran Greek DJ Leonidas (aka Alien Disco Sugar) enjoy a whole new lease of life in the re-edit age. His latest release, the Payback EP boasts four new jams - the bouncy mid-paced sizzler "Lets Get It On", the James-Brown-on-ludes slow-crunch of "JB Payback", the hyperactive hysteria of "Rok Da House" and the breezy, top down glide of "(Looking For) Somebody". Dancefloors everywhere, considered yourselves destroyed!

Review: Australian re-edit king, Dr Packer, loves his '80s electro-soul and funk, and here he kicks off 2015 with a slammin' rejig of Al Jarreau's slinky digi-soul classic "Boogie Down". There's a further four jams to check out here too, including a cool, Balearic rework of Sheila E's "Love Bizarre", a totally dubbed out version of "Walking On Sunshine" and the synthy, meandering disco house joint, "Take My Love".

Review: Russian disco roustabout Valique lays down yet another collection of fun-time versions. With full focus locked on the heart of the party, there's no beard grazing crate stroking here, just straight up party exciters. Highlights include the clever loopy build on the climax of "The Night" (A cheeky twist on George Benson's "Give Me The Night"), the smouldering, come-to-bed winks of "Sexy Eyes" and the audacious space-race primed twist on Genesis classic "I Can't Dance". Wow factor set to stun.

Review: Dealing strictly in extended collections, Funk Fusion continues its extensive work into 2015 with a 22-track compendium of killer edits, bootlegs and reversions. With an emphasis on fine-tuned, low-swung party jams; highlights include the subtle acid treatment of En Vogue ("Get It"), silky, synth-slapping disco boogie ("Mistery Island"), badass blue grass ("Bluesy Bounce"), Chic-style Public Enemy subversion ("Funky Enemy Number One") and smoke-stacked skank science ("Method Man"). Fusion by name, funky by nature: no party should be without this collection.

Review: Here we have two vintage funk giants, Joey Negro and Sean P, join forces to present a collection of 'badass funk classics from the disco boogie era'. Individually these guys are authorities on the genre, but combined they're positively the definitive voice. We've a whopping 24 choice cuts to wade through, highlights including the breaks-packed percussive gem "Clap Song", the saucy cosmic funk of "Come On And Rock" and the suggestive aerobic bass workout "Gigolette". An essential vintage compilation if ever we saw one!

Fur Hildegard Von Disco - (6:04) 112 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having recently concentrated on handing debuts to little-known artists, Midnight Riot has decided to take a slightly different approach for this latest outing. It comes from Trujillo, a man whose Balearic inclined blends of deep house and nu-disco have previously impressed via Spain's Apersonal imprint. As usual, there's much to enjoy, from the sunny shuffle, soulful vocals (seemingly borrowed from an R&B record) and cute Balearic touches of "Makin' Me High", to the head-nodding, nu-disco-goes-hip-house loveliness of "Postin' High". Also worth a look is "Fur Hildegard Von Disco", a deliciously hazy, sun-kissed chugger built around sweet, delay-laden guitars, baggy grooves and Prince style vocal hooks (drenched, naturally, in plenty of delay).

Review: Danish deep house talent Paxton Fettel unleashes three disco-infused house cuts through disco specialists Apersonal Music. Fettel joins the family of the label's fine roster of retro-tone music makers backed up with a Jimpster remix. Always in the search of timeless music pieces the Spanish imprint sure found a fine exponent of their unique trippy melodic universe with Fettel's offer on this EP. "She's All Right", "Sundown, as the Beat Gently Skips" and "Tripped Out" make a solid statement of nu-disco editing in a house fashion, new to the artist but with a solid experience on the label's trajectory. To push the boundaries of Fettel's sound no other than high-fi music creator Jimpster to remix "She's All Right", opening a special space for the track on any dance floor filled with raving house lovers.

from $1.49
Played by: B.G. Baarregaard
Review: Getting his name out there following a single on Winding Road Records in 2013, Lonely Boy is making his intentions clear on this single for Futureboogie. The LA-based producer has a strong handle on the kind of sleazy, four-to-the-floor house music that the Bristolian label favours, and the title-track delivers on every level. "The Subtle Frenzy" has a powerful emotive streak at the core of its own fuzzy synth lines, while "Take Your Time" drifts into slower, more thoughtful territory to show there's more than one side to this boogie-loving beatsmith. The Emperor Machine, meanwhile, whips up a chunky electro-house version of "I Like Disco" that adds a little more meat for the more pumped-up dancefloors.

Review: Of late, Dave Gerrard has been gallivanting around town, flirting with all the hottest re-edit labels going. His latest musical paramour is none other than Hot Digits, a freshly squeezed clinch of which the fruits are certainly not made from concentrate. Once again uplifting '70s party vibes are the order of the day, with "Use My Body" being a slow, twanging raunch-fest, while "Coming To You Live" is a hypnotic brassy disco pulsator. "Something That You Do To Me" sounds like the Jackson family at their glittery peak, and finally "Feel So Good" ends proceedings with a breaky, melodramatic mood-jam.

Featuring the likes of Alkalino, Flash Atkins, Tuxxedo, 80s Child, Yam Who and many more respected names in edit craft and genuine disco specialism, you know this is the real deal before you even press play. Highlights include Sophie Lloyd's bluesy fused edit of Kongas' "Tattoo Woman", Flash Atkins' P-funk busting stomper "The Jungle", Pablo & Shoey's slinky, slippery bass-laced "Love Feelin'" and Yam Who's straight-up disco slapper "Don't You Want My Love".

Review: Italian producer Kiu D has previously delivered party blends of disco, electrofunk and house on Hotbox Boogie and Other Sound. Here, he pops up on Masterworks Music with his most forthright and funky EP yet. His cut-and-paste style is arguably best showcased by title track "Discotheque", which peppers a familiar (if tooled up) disco groove with chugging, Italo-style arpeggios, nu-disco synths and further smile-inducing samples. The same approach is successfully applied on "Don't Stop" - a rubbery nu-disco bumper built around snippets from the K.I.D track of the same name - while "Loose" delivers a killer chunk of baggy disco-funk positivity, helped in no small part by some seriously cheeky synth solos.

Midnight Riot, Vol 8 - The Dead Rose Company DJ Mix - (1:08:54) 119 BPM
from $1.49
Review: You'd struggle to find a more passionate champion of the nu-disco and re-edits scene than Yam Who. His edit-focused Midnight Riot label does a great job in spotting and showcasing talent. Somewhat predictably, this eighth installment in the label's self-titled compilation series is another winner. It features some 31 tracks, plus a bonus mix from the Dead Rose Music Company, and bristles with the kind of floor-friendly material that blurs the boundaries between electrofunk, nu-disco, house, funk, soul and, of course, straight-up disco. Given the sheer scale of the collection, picking highlights is tough, but look out for some urgent boogie business from Rayko, a dose of spinetingling, sax-laden sweetness from Goldboy, and a live bass and vintage synthesizer rinse-out from Fran Deeper and James Rod.

Review: French funkateer Vas lays down four more floor-focussed edits. "Tell Me" gives Mayfield a turbo-charged groove restructure. Thumping, unashamed funk, it will ignite any party within a 20 mile radius. "The Q" then shoots us straight up into a space with a subtle touch on Doctor Dru's cult cosmic jam "The Voice Of Dru". Dig deeper for the infectious party chants of Trouble Funk edit "What Funk" before Vas shuts us down with the best edit of the set... A gritty, low-down take on Cameo's "Keep It Hot", it's guaranteed to ignite big moves.

Here we get a new label comp featuring four different takes from four different artists: stop-start loopy funk (78 Edits' "Keep It Up"), deep and spacey jack-fests (Lootbeg & M Ono's "About You"), 303 fizz-outs (Gregory Dub's "Acid Spacejam") and the slow, raw and romantic depth charges of "Acaya" by Zacharias. Boom!

from $1.49
Review: Having recently taken time out to co-produce a big Venice Beach single for Nang, French disco digger DJ Moar returns to the re-edit game with four more desirable reworks. His edits are often characterized by a distinctive house shuffle and liberal use of filters. While that's partially the case here - "La Nuit (Disco Mix)" has a classic US deep house feel, despite the live disco keys and vocals, and "Stereo In Party" sounds like a Soundstream cut-up of Fred Wesley's "House Party", with a little more swing - there's also a pleasing looseness to proceedings. This is particularly evident on the undulating disco-funk flex of "Somebody Funky" and the yearning, Rhodes-laden midtempo goodness of "4 Love", arguably the EP's stand out moment.

from $1.49
Review: Over his short career to date, Peza has attracted some notable DJ support, with Yam Who, Greg Wilson, Andrew Weatherall and Optimo all supporting his releases. Dicky Trisco is a fan, too, and has previously released Peza cuts on Audiodiscotheque. Here he brings him to the Maxi Discs label, unleashing the synth-heavy original production "Mekon". Undoubtedly positive and Balearic in outlook, the track blends electrofunk-era synthesizer motifs and Reverso 68 style saucer-eyed electronics with just the right amount of dancefloor-friendly, Italo-influenced midtempo chug. Pete Herbert and Dicky Trisco once again join forces to provide a notable remix, with the veteran duo emphasizing the track's more chugging elements whilst retaining a tactile, saucer-eyed feel.

Review: Just weeks have passed since he treated us to volume one, NY P-Sol editor returns with another varied selection of disco funk versions. "On A Trip" adds a little contemporary production magic to the Garden Of Eden's long-lost classic. "Good Years" is a full fuelled funk bluster with an empowering spoken word sample, "Body Language" slaps hard with squidgy synth bass boogie punches, while "This Must Be Home" takes Eno & Byrne on a whimsical funk mission in a Cadillac made of pure post-disco magic.

Review: For a label that only launched this spring, four volumes of creatively executed party jams is beyond impressive. We reckon this could be Funk Fusion's best yet, too. From Rhythm Scholar's respectfully tripped out twist on "Lucy In The Sky" to Fabioulous Barker's slap-bass blazed take on Skeelow via the funkiest ever version of 2Pac's "California Love", it's an impressive collection that leans towards the more subtle art of editing rather than crass bootleg cut-and-shuts and will have a lot more timeless appeal as a result.

Review: It's been eight long years since Joey Negro and Sean P compiled Supafunkanova, a killer collection of scorching funk jams from the disco and boogie era. This follow-up is, then, is well overdue. Happily, the track list is packed with even more obscure gems than the first - and that was hardly full of well-known fare. Naturally, there's much to admire amongst the 20 tracks, from the low-slung synths, P-funk attitude and sleazy vocals of Magnum Force's "Cool Out" and super-smooth jazz-funk of Samm Culley Band's "Walk", to the 12-minute sweaty grunt-a-thon that is Brenda Harris's brilliant "Making Love Will Make You Fit". In truth, we could have picked out another six or seven tracks as highlights; suffice to say, Supafunkanova Volume 2 is another quality collection.

Review: Disco deejay and scalpel-handy audio surgeon, DJ Butcher, has awoken from winter hibernation to deliver his first EP of 2015. The Last Hurrah boasts three new joints, all with a noticeably sultry vibe. "Making Mad Music" is all smoldering, percussive 1980s yacht-beat, "Talk Is Cheap" is a sharp, tight and a funky wake-up slap, and finally "You Promised Me Some Lovin'" is a combination of the two - with clipped, funky riffs grinding with sticky disco melodies.

Review: For this latest release on the long-running Chopshop imprint, Greece-based bossman DJ Butcher has decided to flip the script. Instead of delivering cheeky disco re-edits, Dope Hip Cuts revisits the now overlooked world of classic hip-hop mash-ups. Ill Advised's excellent opener "Grunt Without The Noise", for example, expertly fixes a Public Enemy acapella to a sweaty, horn-heavy funk groove, while Captain Futuro's "Break Me Off" and "Club Warzone" turn more recent hip-hop and R&B jams into toe-tapping, head-nodding disco-meets-jazz-funk dancefloor jams. Phat Camel impresses, too, with "I Wish", which doffs a cap to Yam Who's infamous early 2000s reworks of contemporary soul, hip-hop and R&B killers.

Freefalling - (6:10) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Mark Barrott's International Feel label seems to be going from strength to strength. Certainly, this debut single from previously unknown combo Private Agenda - a trio known only as Martin, Sean and Nick - is amongst the label's strongest releases to date. "Deja vu", in particular, is superb, with snaking synth lines and an early George Michael style vocal reclining over dreamy chords, electrofunk synths and a breezy, mid '80s Balearic pop groove. Virtual flipside "Freefalling" is similarly impressive, with twittering bird noises, enveloping pads and slack-jawed vocals rubbing shoulders with sun-kissed melodies and shuffling electronic percussion. In truth, both tracks sound like the sort of thing Alfredo would have championed back in 1986 - high praise for those who sway, eyes closed and smiling, to the Balearic beat.

The level of quality is high, but our particular faves include the intense, jagged new wave funk of "You A Winner Babe", the love-lorn Caribbean lilt of "Feel About U" and the tropical Italo-disco of closer "Make Daddy Shook".

Review: With the Ladykillers EP being his third EP under the YSE Saint Laur'ant moniker, it seems that Ant Plate (Rhythm Plate/YSE) seems to be growing more and more accustomed to the guise. That's good news for us and fans of high quality laid back palm tree disco jams everywhere. There are four tracks here, each of which takes a different direction, from filtered slo-mo disco-house loops ("Ghetto Woman") to weirded out samples over hypnotic shuffles ("Psychodelic Woman"), but our fave is the breezy, disco-drenched yacht rock of "Crying Woman".

Review: Normally one for the grand gesture (his last album boasted 27 tracks!), master of the gently nefarious art of the mash-up, Morlack, comes back down to earth to deliver a mere four edited disco gems for Katakana. As usual, the production quality of his sample-fuelled jiggery is second to none, with the slow and elastic funk of smoocher "The Dude", the slap bass twitcher "Morning", the stormin' electro-funk of "Dusic" and the raw, cowbell bustin' hoe-down of "Spinnin'" proving to be dancefloor devourers one and all.

from $1.49
Review: Former Padded Cell and Bronx Dogs man Richard Sen has made some great records in his time, and "Songs of Pressure" is up there with the best of them. Joining the dots between murky dub disco, horror soundtracks and EBM, it layers spooky, delay-laden synthesizer motifs and wonky vocal samples atop a heavy dub rhythm and punchy machine drums. Pals Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J Fairplay deliver a bongo-laden, dubbed-out revision (part wayward exotica, part humid Balearic dub), while Acca strips the track down to its' nare bones for a ket-addled dub.

Review: Given the high quality musical skills of Faze Action's Simon and Robin Lee, you'd expect any side or solo projects to be blessed with the same expansive musicality. That's certainly the case on this second solo EP from one half of the brothers, which doffs a cap to classic New York disco. The title track's the real killer, with live bass, guitars, vocals, drums and keys combining on an authentically warm, loose and floor-friendly disco jam. The disco-funk-meets-Italo flex of "Kano's Line Jam" is almost as good, while "Solonoid" brilliantly pits rubbery disco bass and hissing percussion against Arthur Russell style cello and vintage synthesizers. A pair of throbbing, 21st century dancefloor reworks of the classic-sounding title track complete a great package.

Played by: Trujillo
Review: Venezuelan high-end disco hero Daniel Grau has been recently rediscovered by Sonar Kollektiv and DJ Trujillo, and this is the third installment in their Reworks remix series. UK disco don Ray Mang makes short work of a rare cover of Grau's "El Leon Bailarian" - a totally amazing burst of trippy disco stardust. Elsewhere the stunning "Tonight" becomes darkly seductive raw Italo in Soul Clap & Bosq's hands, "Atlantis" becomes liquid ecstasy-funk courtesy of Debonair and "Delirio En Fa Menor" is rendered Loveboat-cool by DJ Trujillo & Miguel Molina.

Review: Hi NRG yet slo-mo, Dark Strands present a chugging single of burning nu-disco with a heavy cast of remixers. The original, however, sits at a low slung 106 BPMs and features all the loved tropes of the genre - up front Italoc synths, breeze block-sized beats, breathy vocals, and yes, cowbells. The Heretic remix focuses its energies on the vocals and synths while adding a gruelling 303 bassline, while Inigo Vontier goes big and progressive, similar to the music of Dusty Kid. Tronik Youth turns the track into an electrified piece of rocking, electro Balearica, and stripped back sensations is the order of the day for DJ ATHome.

Review: Having already carved a decent name for himself in the nu-disco universe, 80s Child (aka Danny Worrall), now turns his hand to running labels. Masterworks is his new imprint, and this eponymous compilation is its debut release. It's a total all-you-can-eat buffet of contemporary disco, featuring a whole host of familiar names. There are a whopping 23 tracks on here, some of the best include Tomas Malo's sultry grinder, "After The Rain", Yam Who?'s bouncy sunkissed disco joint "Find Out" and the digi-freestyle breaks of TV's "Love Situation".

Played by: PHIL DISCO, YAM WHO?
Review: Given the lack of concrete information online about the identity of the South Beach Recycling edits crew, we'll have to refer to them as 'mystery editors'. Their publicity-shy approach may have something to do with the well-known nature of some of their source material. Opener "Light Sabre", for example, delivers a tough, floor-friendly rework of a hands-in-the-air Paradise Garage disco fave from Gayle Adams, while "He's Alright" offers a delightfully dubbed-out, largely instrumental interpretation of the Staple Singers well-loved cover of Talking Heads's "Slippery People". Ironically, it's the edits of slightly more obscure jams that hit home hardest, with the carnival percussion, thrillingly loose drums and horn-totin' madness of the near 11-minute "Love Anybody" standing out.

from $1.49
Review: Greek scalpel maestro Alien Disco Sugar doesn't mess around. Throughout 2014, he averaged a new EP of bumpin', dancefloor-friendly disco re-edits a month, and kicked off 2015 in January with another essential selection of contemporary re-cuts. Right On is typical of his no-frills, the floor-comes-first style, meaning there's plenty of playable material to choose from. The sweeping filters, righteous horns and bass-heavy bounce of the title track arguably hit home hardest, though P-Funk slammer "Get Your Body Up" and Salsoul rework "Love Thang" push it close. For those after something a little more sensual, "I Can Sho Give You Love" will get you in the mood via some sinewy, string-laden builds, filtered vocals and an undulating groove.
