from $2.16
Review: The first two volumes of Paper Recordings' Trash The Wax series both flew off the (virtual) shelves, thanks in no small part to their on-point selections of modern disco in all its' glorious forms. This third installment is, if anything, even stronger. Beginning with Red Rack'em's killer rework of Solid State's cut-up disco classic "Philly Live", the 17-track collection variously touches on psychedelic disco-rock (Deckard), sweaty, homoerotic disco-acid (Dunn and Massey's filthy "Red Room Disco"), baggy revivalist disco-funk (Skinny Dipp), hustlin' edits (Get Down Edits), synth-laden nu-disco (Julian Sanza), and contemporary Scandolearic treats (Rave-Enka). In other words, it's a hugely strong collection of modern disco treats.

Freebooter (Harry Wolfman remix) - (5:05) 126 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Not quite house, not quite disco, Fouk (aka Daniel Leseman and Hans 'Junktion' Peeman) straddle both worlds, utlising the best of both in their quest for the ultimate groove. Here they present the gruff EP, comprising a set of three truly accomplished recordings - the loungey shimmer of "Gruff", the filtered loop boogie of "Freebooter" and the live sounding jazz-funk of "Orchard". The best remix is Snacks' rework of the title track - all squelchy disco synths.

from $2.16
Review: Midnight Riot's latest recruit, the wonderfully named His Dirty Secrets, hails from the steamy, sleazy surrounds of Miami. His music is similarly saucy, with this debut EP offering a sextet of tracks that effortlessly blend soul, disco, funk and boogie samples with his own warm, goodtime house sounds. There's naturally much to admire, from the funk-goes-house hustle of "When You Get The Groove" and bouncy, string-laden disco-house stomp of "Real Love" (built around an oh-so familiar classic), to the loved-up, slo-mo chug of "Sylvia", and rich deep house opener "Thug Life". All told, it's a strong collection of tried-and-tested dancefloor grooves.

Review: Valique must have the world's largest record collection, as he is now on his fourth anniversary re-edit compilation and still shows no signs of stopping. This time round we get a whopping 28 reworks to choose from. It's packed full of copyright dodging megahit reworks including "Booty Itching" which features a super-teased KC & The Sunshine Band sample, the trippy acidic rework of Owner Of A Lonely Heart by Yes and dreamy disco laser-fest "When Did I Stop Loving You". Party gold.

from $2.16
Review: Ever masters of leaving them wanting more, the latest Editor's Kutz compilation, their fifth, is being unveiled in two halves. This first installment features four sizzling new disco cuts all guaranteed to keep us moving until the next batch arrives. First up Sleazy McQueen & Vinyl Addicted present their slick rework of the sumptuous soft-focus disco gem "Lonely D", next Luvless teases out the loopy stomper "My Lovin", Trujillio goes more for guitar-led funk on "Get Up And Dance", whilst Jean Claude Gavri tackles the mighty, original heartbreaker "Lets Stay Together" and succeeds.

Everlasting - (7:31) 116 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.92
Review: Aussie edit maestro Dr Packer enjoyed a productive 2015, delivering top-selling releases for such labels as DiscoDat, Masterworks Music and Hot Digits. Here, he kick-starts 2016 with All Nite, another white-hot collection of tried-and-tested reworks. As usual, there's much to admire, from the piano-heavy, hands-in-the-air goodness of Inner Life re-rub "All Nite Boogie", to the rolling, anthem-like sweetness of "Everlasting", a well-crafted snip of the Whispers' "And The Beat Goes On". In between, you'll find similarly solid versions of Diana Ross ("Call The Doctor") and Cherelle and Alexander O'Neal ("No Love Like Saturday"). The source material may be a little on the well-known side, but the edits are pretty tasty.

Ocean by Liner on Vintage Music Cue Track
Liner - "Ocean" (Sunner Soul edit) - (5:20) 110 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Russian disco and edits label Vintage Music is still doing the business good and proper. As said previously, living in Siberia doesn't stop these guys living a sun kissed dream and more power to them! This time it's home grown talent Sunner Soul appearing for the most part, mining the kind of smooth 70's soul funk samples that even Kenny Dixon Jr. would approve of. We're particularly keen on the sultry Rhodes and guitar licks of "Do It For My Brother" and the oh so uplifting "Smooth Riding". Liner offers us "Ocean" but hang on; it's Sunner Soul's edit and it's brilliant too; that vocoder, wow!

from $2.16
Review: It may be detox January for some, but for Yam Who, it's champagne o'clock as he sees his label series reach its tenth volume. There's a mind boggling 27 tracks featured here, a veritable smorgasbord of deliciously disco tuneage. Highlights include the chaotic hiNRG of Seamus Haji's "ReLoved", the tough, but soulful, jacker "Many Lovers" by Judge Funk and the smooth, synth-boogie of "Takes Me Out" by G Prajekts.

Juice by Gradient Logic on Disco Fruit Cue Track
Gradient Logic - "Juice" - (6:41) 115 BPM
from $2.16
Review: With a new year upon us, Tonbe has decided to gather together another selection of highlights from his dependable Disco Fruit imprint. As you might expect, the ten tracks are all "tried and tested" dancefloor destroyers, most of which effortlessly blur the boundaries between original disco and boogie, and more contemporary, house-centric grooves. Highlights are plentiful, from the sinewy strings and breezy beats of Tonbe's "I Feel Energy" and Deelicious' bustling AOR disco rework "Why Did You Do It", to the rubbery slap-bass and spiraling synthesizers of Evil Smarty's stand-out "This Is". Gradient Logic's "Juice", the most recent release on the collection, is also rather fine.

Cid & Fancy - "On The Road Again" - (8:24) 132 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Midnight Riot's latest re-edit/rework outing is an all-star affair, with a variety of cheeky scamps delivering a track each. Dot 40 manage to turn in a genuinely revelatory version of a classic in "I Believe", which impressively chops and loops a Jackson Sisters' classic before unleashing the song's party-starting powers as it progresses. GG re-invents a Modern Romance classic as a spiraling, Latin nu-disco throbber, while A Digital Needle make merry with another familiar disco-soul classic, impressively teasing out the vocal and instrumental solos. Best of all, though, is Fatneck's "Circulate", which subtly breathes new life into a White Isle-friendly blue-eyed soul classic.

Right In The Socket - (6:17) 123 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Here we have a juicy debut from re-edit man Mike Woods. Boasting five tracks, we quickly can see that he is all about squeezing the grooves out of classic disco, teasing each samples until it pops. "Hot Your Hot" kicks things off with six-minutes of extended funky riffage that occasionally gives way to some vocal joy. Elsewhere "It Seems To Hang On" is more vocal-orientated with a vintage Curtis Mayfield-style singer lost in painful rapture, "She's A Groovy Freak" is taught boogie fun, "That Dexter Thing" is a hypnotic, low-slung groove loop and "Right In The Socket" is an accelerated keyboard disco jam.

I Never by Paso on D.KO Cue Track
Paso - "I Never" (Petr Serkin remix) - (5:41) 115 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Sexy Parisian deep house: what more can we say? D.KO are the right crew for the job, as we'll explain. Local lad Flabaire has appeared previously on Serie Limitee and Organic Music. "Biblife" is sombre and soulful deep house reminiscent of the emotive style of legends like Pepe Braddock or Schmoove. Paso Music head honcho: Paso, also appears here with the deep and sultry groove of "I Never" which is perfect for the early evening or afterhours alike. Petr Serkin gives the track a pretty decent remix treatment too, retaining the deep funky groove but with some help from some dreamy pads and cowbells which work a treat. Ma Rey's "Quartier Sex" is definitely the fiercest offering on here; tough and thumping peak time house reminiscent of Phil Weeks.

Review: Giant Cuts' mysterious Disco Boogie Classics series has a simple aim, namely to provide DJs with on-point, contemporary dancefloor rearrangements of vintage gems. There are four more (un-credited) edits to choose from here, beginning with the rolling, feel good disco-funk grooves and tight boogie bass of "Super Lover". "Make My Dreams" is a slightly tightened up, expertly rearranged version of a boogie/'80s soul killer, while "Scratch The House" turns a low-slung, disco-era funk jam into a filter-heavy, house-friendly roller. Finally, "I'm Serious" takes a trip into the piano-and-synth heavy world of disco/boogie crossover, offering up a breezy interpretation of an Aleems-like groover.

Shake Raw Cut - (5:52) 116 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Three months on from his last outing on Rebel Hearts, Mr Given Raw returns with four more reasons to be cheerful. Cannily moving between different disco moods and tempos, the Shake Raw Hearts EP sees the French producer once again tiptoeing the fine line between scalpel-style re-edits, and house style remixes. He begins with the tightened-up, horn-heavy disco-funk of "Shake Your Body", before heading to heavier - if a touch slower - pastures with the low-slung disco-funk-meets-disco-house hustle of "Get On Down". There's a bouncier feel to the rather tasty "Love At The Disco", while "Shake Raw Cut" is a grandiose, string-drenched, Salsoul style disco treat.

Review: Editorial are back with another mini compilation: hallelujah! It's more on the deeper tip than the disco one this time around, but it's all the same quality you expect from this camp as always! Jus Tadi's dreamy and lush deep house vibes come courtesy of "Peaches", Matt Hughes serves up some deep down and dirty funk on "Do Your Thing", plus there's some chilled-out balearic business covered also by P SOL on "Come On". A Salsoul sounding re-edit by Serge Gamesbourg (!) on "Burning" is a worthy addition and some sexy deep house to close out proceedings courtesy of Long Island Sound and The Owl respectively. All killer no filler!

Review: It can be hard to predict what Fort Romeau will do next. While he's always excelled at making evocative, melancholic blends of vintage deep house, instrumental synth-pop and glistening electronica, he's prone to frequent stylistic shifts, as his eccentric 2015 outings on Cin Cin and Running Back neatly demonstrated. For this EP on Live At Robert Johnson, he's back to his deep and emotion-rich best, laying down a trio of tracks that emphasise mood, melody and simple beauty over the demands of the dancefloor. "Facing The Sea" is the most obvious club-friendly of the three - think chugging, hissing rhythms, winding melodies and Behaviour-era Pet Shop Boys chords - though it's the intensely beautiful "Seventyfour" that really stands out.

No More Talking - (7:02) 120 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Everyone's favourite golfer-baiting cut-up merchants are back, once again plying their trade on the T&W Records label Gerd Jansen set up for them as an offshoot of his mighty Running Back stable. Although their method and style rarely changes - and it certainly doesn't here - the Italian duo also rarely fail to deliver. "Boca" is another killer, with cheery, boogie-era disco loops and vocal cuts being tweaked to perfection over the course of nine mesmerizing, party-starting minutes. Flipside "No More Talking" is arguably even better, with the pair making great use of an extended breakdown and build up. By the time the track drops again - via big vocal loops and piano-laden disco hooks - you'll have stopped wondering about the identity of the source material and be dancing like mad.

Review: For a seventh time, Perth-based scalpel fiddler Dr Packer opens his surgery doors and invites us inside. As usual, his cheery, floor-friendly reworks strike the right balance between contemporary dancefloor chops (beefed-up bottom end, well-placed filters, and so on), and treating the source material with due reverence. Happily, there's not a duffer in sight, and even his reworks of stone cold classics (see Oliver Cheetham tweak "Friday's Enemy", First Choice revision "Love Doctor" and housed-up Evelyn 'Champagne' King stomper "Shame (VIP)") are different enough to be worthwhile additions to your collection. Highlights are plentiful, but check - in particular - the string-laden disco chug of "Ecstasy" and "Nightlife", a thickset '80s boogie rub full of sparkling synthesizers and heavy bass.

Review: One day, Valique will run out of material for his popular V's Edits series. For his 20th volume of sneaky re-rubs, remixes and re-edits, he adds his unique touch to another batch of unlikely classics and well-loved gems. He begins by sticking a rocket under Johnny Cash's turn-of-the-millennium cover of U2's "One", before delivering a woozy, feel-good house interpretation of a Marvin Gaye gem. Next, Yes's "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" is transformed into wobbly tech-house/deep-house/nu-disco shuffler, before he storms into guaranteed party-starting territory with a synth-heavy, nu-disco/house remix of The Clash's "Rock The Casbah". A more fluid, boogie-tinged version of the previously re-edited Marvin Gaye cut completes another big package.

Review: Known for their releases on Yam Who's Midnight Riot, the appropriately-named Shit Hot Soundsystem call shotgun on this latest digital drop from Bordeaux-based Discoalition label. "Flashback" is a wonderfully vibrant slice of retro modern disco, taking all that is classic about the genre but executing it with a contemporary sheen. It sets the tone for this EP as a whole to be honest; witness the delightful disco chug of MB Unlimited's "Float On" or the filter heavy funk stomp of JB Dizzy's "Love Slip". Discoalition founders SEEN ON TV round out matters with the brass heavy delights of "Reach For The Stars."

Review: As Eli Escobar let's it be known in "The Formula" that he's 'got something for you' as the sweet chorale chimes. There's a subtle Osunlade vibe to this album, the American's first, and Rhodes be flaying on "Visions" as they vamp to a climax like a Bootsy Collins solo. It's all stripped back business of "NY So Hi" - get down to this! And for some quality, sustained loops check out "Thank You Les". "Up All Night" is a dubbed-out, cool-as, disco-tinged burner and there's a whole load to discover here in a debut album rich with the type of soul you can only get from the streets of the big apple.

Review: You have to admire the work ethic of Smart Bar resident Chrissy, whose reputation as a house and disco DJ/producer has recently grown following years championing Juke under the Chrissy Murderbot guise. Here he pops up on Freerange with an EP of perfectly pitched deep house grooves. "Growl", featuring the unfussy vocals of Shaun J Wright, offers a great balance between quiet soulfulness and frayed, analogue-inspired deep house sleaze. The producer's love of wobbly, analogue sounding riffs and classic drum sounds comes to the fore on "Presidential Astrologer" (which is also smartly remixed by Savile), while "Loudness Wars" is a Classic Music-style stomper that's guaranteed to get 'em sweating out on the dancefloor.

from $2.16
Review: Having spent the last couple of years focusing on re-edits and crate digging compilations, Psychemagik return to the realm of original production. Featuring the woozy vocals of Navid Izadi, "Mink & Shoes" sounds like the kind of wonky, heavily electronic house roller that you'd expect to find on Crosstown Rebels or Hot Creations, albeit with a little Freaks style bumpin' eccentricity mixed in. It's accompanied by a decidedly trippy, undulating late night dub from Psychemagik themselves, while Mexican producer Yoan Lokier gets busy on the flip. Her version is feels more trippy, with intoxicated, new wave influenced synths taking pride of place amongst a glam-style triple-beat drum pattern. It brings out the wonkiness of Izadi's vocal, which is certainly no bad thing.

Review: Few producers are quite so skilled at creating timeless, sunset-friendly, Balearic disco as Max Essa. Here, he emphasizes that point with another collection of tactile gems on the fast-rising Palms & Charms label. The real highlight is opener "Blame It On Rea", a delicious fusion of dreamy, "Pacific State" style chords, endorphin-heavy synthesizer arpeggios, glistening guitars and head-nodding 4/4 beats. He goes sleazier on the EBM-influenced synthesizer chug of "Body Time" - whilst still retaining his usual saucer-eyed melodies, of course - before channeling the spirit of early Italian house, Soichi Terada and Art of Noise on the wonderful "Keep On Truckin".

Played by: Akio Imai
Review: We're not quite sure who SAM PaLmER AKA SAMPLER is, but this debut EP for George Kelly's Chopshop stable is something of a winner. Palmer's default style is loopy, sample heavy and intense, sitting somewhere between the slamming disco-house cut-ups of Soundstream, and the baggier, slo-mo loop-jams of LTJ. It's a formula that frequently delivers fantastic results; check, for example, the slow-building brilliance of Steve Miller Band rearrangement "Super Fly Eagle", or the rolling, saucer-eyed dancefloor bliss of "One Night In Chaka". Elsewhere, the debutant gets jazzy on the woozy, Bossa-influenced deep house of "Night In Tunisia", before heading for low-slung Balearic disco pastures on "Body Bits".

from $2.16
Review: Given the quality of their respective releases, you'd expect this first collaboration between Moscoman and Red Axes to be rather good. Predictably, it is, with both tracks offering the perfect balance between weary late night atmospherics and intoxicating dancefloor shuffle. Opener "Dikembe Manatu" builds the action around a foreboding bassline and dense African percussion, with metallic melodies and druggy electronics expertly layered atop. Virtual flipside "Rage In The Cage" takes a different approach, with sleazy, late night electronics and throbbing analogue refrains contrasting neatly with the trio's unfussy, cowbell-laden percussion. Both tracks sound primed for dimly lit basement spaces and intimate parties the World over.

Review: It's that time again: yet another volume of Editors Kutz. NYC underground hero Jkriv gives the sublime and dreamy deep disco of "Horizonte" a nice rework. Riccio's "Space Traveller" follows in suit, giving a modern retouch to James Vincent's 1975 classic. The Noodleman from Toronto lends his midas grip to the smooth and sultry "Baby Doll" which is a real highlight on here and finally it's over to Em Vee aka Marcel Vogel who's edit of "Dance The Blues Away" is pure fire.

Review: Captain Futuro, a collaboration between producer/MC Jeff Gonzalez and DJ Butcher, has long been one of Chopshop's most interesting projects. While much of the label's output focuses on straight-up disco re-edits, the Captain Futuro sound is much more akin to the original, disco and boogie-friendly sound of classic early hip-hop. This expansive debut album-come-compilation, which boasts both vocal and instrumental versions of many tracks, follows this simple goodtime formula, delivering a range of tracks that borrow heavily from both well known and obscure '70s and '80s records, adding fresh rap vocals and those lifted from previously released hip-hop jams. Predictably, it's a hugely enjoyable set, sharply focused on getting the party started, whatever the time or place.

Review: Deelicious has enjoyed an impressive debut year, delivering solid blends of disco, boogie and house for Disco Fruit and Sound Exhibitions. This final release of 2015 contains arguably his strongest collection of tracks yet. Title track "Ridin High" is something of a rich and evocative treat, with jazzy keys, chords, guitars and vocal samples riding a slick deep house groove. "For Your Heart Ache" offers a breezy house take on a sweet old disco rub, while "Too Late" blends samples from what sounds like an '80s R&B/soul cut with jaunty house beats. After a quick trip into filter-heavy disco-house territory ("You Know How"), Fingerman rounds things off by delivering a smoother, more hypnotic house revision of "Ridin High".

Review: File Under Disco's "100% original disco music" remit is refreshing in these days of countless re-edits and sample-heavy nu-disco mash-ups. Their latest salvo comes from London's Oh Yeah, whose trademark sound effortlessly blends live drums, bass, guitars, keys and vocals. "Nothing But The Beat" is a strong debut, sitting somewhere between sharp, Chic-style disco, hazy jazz-funk and early '90s acid jazz. The remix package is notably strong, too, with Crazy P man Hot Toddy delivering a pair of reworks. On both he toughens things up a little and adds a few dub disco flourishes, whilst retaining the band's wonderful instrumentation. His Dub, in particular, is superb.

Review: Mexico's analogue funk heroes Future Feelings have a history of heavy impact releases, usually backed up with equally heavy remixes. Back once again on Nang, FF's latest is "Find Out" - a slow and sleazy grind that's all twanging bass, taut guitar licks and soul-rock vocals. There are also a whopping five remixes, highlights of which include Pete Herbert's bouncey electro-house dub rework (think early DJ T here), the sparse, arpeggiated minimalism of Serj V Gaudi's "Expose" mix and the groovy tension of Irregular Disco Workers' "Lost In Zara Rerub".

Review: The latest installment of Katakana's Edits series may be a short and sweet January stopgap, but that doesn't mean the quality is any less. First up Timewrap teams up with Mister Vagz to drop a perky big beat hoedown in the form of "Soul Fingaz", before the mighty Timewrap steps in and slows things down with the soulful Reggae grooves of "Jalec".

Review: The mighty Future Disco have built a strong reputation through their high quality compilations and here they aim to 'pay homage to the long-standing love affair between dance music and disco'. They've scored a coup with the much sought after "Whats A Girl To Do" - a long lost cut from Fatima Yamaha (aka Seymour Bits) that's samples Lost In Translation. There are a further 16 tracks and a DJ mix too. Highlights include Joe Goddard's sumptuous mid paced rework of "Square 1", the sparse strings and guitars samples of "Oma Doris" by HNNY and the Italo disco classic "Dirty Talk".

Review: It's time to raise a glass of something cold, fizzy and boozy to the long-running G.A.M.M imprint, which celebrates a century of releases with a trio of new disco-era Michael Jackson reworks from regular contributors Moplen and The Reflex. As usual, The Reflex hits the spot, playing around with the original parts to deliver a punchy, floor-friendly extension of Off The Wall cut "Burn This Disco Out" that sounds like some mythical, long lost Tom Moulton remix. Moplen weighs in with two versions of Jacksons' banger "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)"; a DJ-friendly effort that begins with easily mixable grooves, and a superior, mostly instrumental 'Remix' that builds up masterfully via a sumptuous, orchestral intro.

Review: It would be fair to say that Situation are the best thing to come out of Stroud, one of the Cotswolds' more notable locations, since Damien Hirst. Here the Gloucestershire collective pop up on Chopshop with The Cosmic Situation, a triple-dose of tried-and-tested reworks and mash-ups. First up is "Get Down Love", a surprisingly successful fusion of Oliver Cheetham's "Get Down Saturday Night" and Alexander O'Neal/Cherelle fave "Saturday Love". "Judge & Dury" offers an excellent extension and rearrangement if Ian Dury & The Blockheads' "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" (check the fuzzy sax stabs in the second half of the track), while "Maxine's Tip" makes merry with some deep hip-hop loops and a dash of Q-Tip.

Don't Think About Me - (4:45) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.16
Played by: Renegades Of Jazz
Review: It's been nearly three years since Letherette announced their arrival with a widely acclaimed debut album on Ninja Tune. Here, they return to Coldcut's legendary stable for the first time since. The duo begins in confident fashion, delivering a hazy, jazzy take on dusty deep house ("Rayon"), before going deeper into UK deep house/classic US house fusion with the similarly wavy and quietly positive "Look No More". They're often at their best when including post-dubstep production techniques within their garage-influenced deep house tracks, and that's exactly what's delivered on "Without You". Best of all, though, is toasty, floor-friendly closer "Don't Think About Me", which layers soulful vocal samples, twinkly samples and fluttering chords atop a deliciously warm groove.

Review: Daniel Leseman and Hans 'Junktion' Peeman first joined forces under the Fouk moniker late last year, delivering an impressive debut EP, First Things First, that skillfully combined the former's jazz-tinged rhythms with the latter's smooth deep house nous. There are plenty more reasons to be cheerful on this debut for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings imprint, not least the driving bass, jaunty jazz samples and warm chords of "Kill Frenzy". There's even more soul present on the loose house beats, glassy-eyed vocal samples and rich textures of "Leftys Bar", while "Ken Sent Me Release" is as woozy, wavy and dreamy as you'd expect. Soothing stuff, all told.

Review: The good humour of the We Mean Disco!! crew is present and correct here on their first release of the year. However "Don't Make They Wait" is more than just a long toilet break, its 18 minutes of suspended bliss built out of a Peech Boys sample. The Paradise Garage vibes continue with two lushly accentuated cuts from The Padlock EP, turned into the spacey synth-funk gems, "Hot Scotch" and "We Are Getting Hot". Things wrap up on the lively "Luv Is The Message And The Message Is Luv", a dubby, but fast, exploration of early 80s disco joy.

Review: We don't know whether the Boogie Down Edits crew spend a lot of time cruising round L.A in a convertible with the roof down, but their edits - often of old West Coast P-funk, boogie, modern soul and hip-hop - would make the perfect accompaniment if they do. There's plenty of similarly hot fodder on this latest installment in their self-titled series, beginning with the P-funk meets hip-hop soul gem "Nuthin' But A Jam". Elsewhere, there's plenty more dancefloor heat to enjoy, from the beatbox electro-meets-'80s soul goodness of "Dancing", and the instrumental Prince re-rub "Boogie Lover", to the '80s disco stomp of "I Want U", and the Vaughan Mason & Co tweak "Roller Boogie".

Review: Those lamenting the lack of new Tiger & Woods produce over the past 18 months can rest easy as the golf loving scalpel merchants return to business on a new Editainment 12" that celebrates the work of their favourite Italian label, the iconic Full Time Records. Gone are the days when Tiger & Woods acted illicitly, as both the tracks here feature fully licensed samples; spliced and diced into almost new shapes of course! Lead track "Fox In The Box" messes around with Matrix's "Take Me Up" whilst the Kano classic "Don't Try To Stop Me" is transformed wondrously on the superb "Stopper".

Set It Off - (6:34) 120 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Alien Disco Sugar's last outing was a formidably disco-centric affair, so it's nice to see him switching attention to more Balearic matters - in part, at least - on this latest offering. He begins with the sumptuous sunset grooves of "I Want U (Aegean Sunset Mix)", where tactile nu-disco grooves are smothered in hazy trumpet solos, sensual strings and twinkling pianos. "Why Did You Do It" offers a tightened-up, dancefloor-friendly take of a well-known AOR disco classic, while closer "Set It Off" offers a tweaked, electro-disco revision of Midway's 1984 proto-house classic of the same name. It's something of a sweaty, floor-friendly smasher.
