Review: Aroop Roy is a producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist originally from the UK and now residing in Tokyo. Be prepared for one well funky and soul infused journey on "Talkin Bout Life" which is perfect to bring in the summer of 2017. Funky elements, a serious horns section and strong vocals hold up this brilliant track. It's a more straight ahead deep house affair on the rather evocative "We Together" and actually its the kind of track you could imagine Derrick May or Dixon playing out; there are definitely elements of 'hi-tech soul' in it. The Brisa remix of Talkin Bout Life" on the flip is a worthy addition also.

Review: Opolopo barely puts a foot wrong, so it's little surprise to find that this collection of Bits N Bobs is really rather good. Highlights include the sparkling, jazz funk-goes-deep house swing of "Put Your Cap On", the P-funk bass and squiggly D-Train synths of "Spray Tan" and the swirling, life-affirming disco-house bump of "Stroke My Disco", where cut-glass string loops and crunchy Clavinet lines ride a relentless groove. Elsewhere, he further enhances his disco/house fusion credentials via the intricately produced, musically expansive warmth of "The Lakedown Stomp", before rounding things off via the bubbly Dam Funk synth solos, Chez Damier chords and snare-heavy drums of jammed-out highlight "Eventide".

Feet On The Ground (Vas Moody rework) - (4:45) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.91
Played by: JOUTRO MUNDO, Superbreak
Review: A couple of years back, Rafael Top Secret - a selector known for digging deep for inspiration - delivered a tidy re-edit of "Sekele I Like It", a previously little-known Afro-boogie cut by French artist Robert "Bobby" Helms. Copies of the 1980 album it came from, Lay Down, Girl, now go for serious money, prompting this licensed reissue. Helms' brilliant, horn-totin' original is accompanied by another cut from that album, "Feet On The Ground" - a straight-up disco affair - and two new remixes. Baptman and Betino's "Philly Vibe" mix of "Sekele I Like" is a largely instrumental interpretation that includes some killer electric piano solos, with Vas Moody's "Feet On The Ground" remix taking that track in a tightly-wound dub disco direction.

Review: Starting out in the early rave scene in Boston, Soul Clap made their name through a series of house edits and became big names through notable releases such as a DJ Kicks mix alongside close NYC allies Wolf + Lamb. "Shine (This Is It)" is the first single from their self-titled second album. It features legendary vocalist Nona Hendryx, an original member of the trio Labelle who's smash single "Lady Marmalade" is a timeless classic. "Shine (This Is It)" features the strength in Hendryx's vocal, which empowers spirits, moving you on the dancefloor. Midnight Magic's Morgan Wiley delivers an outstanding keyboard solo and fellow bandmate Jason Disu teams up with Kali Rodriguez and No Regular Play's Greg Paulus to form the Soul Clap horn section.

The Sound Of A Feeling - (8:14) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.91
Review: Nottingham based Ron Basejam is the anagrammed alter-ego of Crazy P co-founder James Baron who creates music with feelings on labels such as Futureboogie and Wolf Music and now for Freerange sister label Delusions Of Grandeur. On the fittingly titled The Sound Of A Feeling EP he serves up the charmingly titled "Shit Wizard" a soulful, nu-disco boogie-down jam. "We Walk To War" in its original form is the kind of lo-slung/slo-mo disco that really floats our boat, but the remix up next by Tee Mango really injects it with some Stevie Wonder style soul-funk that'll help get your shine on. The title track is the deepest and most emotive offering here, with its sublime and hypnotic qualities being pushed along by a tight groove.

Review: Three years on from his first Talamanca System collaboration with Tuff City Kids duo Gerd Janson and Phillip Lauer, Mark Barrott gets the gang back together for an album of typically loved-up excursions. International Feel's eccentric press release describes it as "a sunburned imagination of a day and night spent on Ibiza during a moment in time that probably never was". Given the album's repeated nods to baggy, piano-laden Italian house, the saucer-eyed, sunrise-friendly brilliance of 808 State's "Pacific State", sun-kissed post Italo-disco chuggers, percussion-laden tropical workouts and head-in-the-clouds ambience, it's actually rather an apt description. It's shamelessly Balearic from start to finish, but pulls it off with an authenticity that others could only dream of.

Review: Sorry, no slow and dark Belgian New Beat here, as this is a whole different kettle of 'Body Music'. Instead we have a satisfying selection of delicious disco and house gems. Here renowned Brooklyn re-edit label Razor-N-Tape have rustled up quite an EP led by the original mix of "Just One", an enrapturing loop of Chic-era guitars, pianos and soulful vocals. The Lay-Far remix is a soft, deep and dreamy excursion. The Drum mix of "Get It Baby" recalls the early boogie synth of Patrick Cowley, while Patchwork goes for pure analogue disco and Wurli drops a killer electronic space-house joint.

Played by: FINGERMAN
Review: Mixmag recently named Razor-N-Tape as one of the most influential disco labels of the last decade. Certainly, there are few edit imprints whose releases are quite as consistently good. Predictably, this four-tracker from Leipzig's Martin Hayes is another doozy. Check, for example, the righteous slap bass, punchy horn lines, eyes-closed guitar solos and layered drum hits of boogie-era disco roller "Get on Down" and the densely percussive disco-funk brilliance of "Tight Spot", where fittingly razor-sharp guitar riffs and woozy synthesizer lines help push the action forwards. Also worth a listen is EP closer "Ol' Funky Music", a pleasingly laidback and groovy affair with plenty of neat instrumental flourishes to accompany the hip-hop style breakbeats.

Sameed - "Dusty Jazz" - (5:53) 120 BPM

Review: Since first dropping on wax in the autumn, this multi-artist affair has gone on to be one of Local Talk's most popular releases in years. It's easy to see why. Jamie 326 and Masalo's "Testify" is a fabulously urgent concoction - a low-sling, disco-tinged deep house bomb built around a restless rhythm track, impassioned, gospel style vocal snippets, and killer Clavinet lines. Sameed's dustier, sweatier "Can't U" offers a different slant on the same idea, offering a basement-bothering stomper that utilizes many of the same samples. Finally, the same artist delivers something looser in the shape of deep jazz-house jam "Dusty Jazz".

Cadillac Disco (original mix) - (6:49) 113 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Review: Disko's latest digital-only release is a meeting of musical minds. It features two groovy, musically rich disco-house collaborations co-produced by sometime Large Music contributor Paul Rudder and fast-rising talent Tete de la Course. While "Cadillac Disco" - a tasty fusion of rolling, bass-propelled grooves, wild flute solos, punchy horns and cheeky vocal samples - is rather good, it's opener "Makin' The Magic" that hits home hardest. A smooth but bumpin' dancefloor shuffler with bold organs, jangling acoustic guitars and eyes-closed vocal samples, it sounds like the kind of track that will easily slip into both house or disco sets. Roberto Rodriguez provides the obligatory remix, gently tugging the track further towards disco-tinged deep house territory.

Review: Paper Recordings comes through with the absolute goods; a compilation that many true-school house heads wound dream of, especially to own it on digital formats. This is the Northern Disco Lights compilation, a total treasure chest of Scandinavian house jams that are going for serious amounts of money on the second-hand market. In short, this is your chance to own these beauties and mould them into your sets. Inside, you'll find timeless tunes from the likes of the great Bjorn Torske, Doc L Junior, and even the dearly missed Erot with the stone-cold classic "Song For Annie". But, there's more; Biosphere appears with that inimitable drone flair, and even Todd Terje features proudly, as per usual. An absolutely essential release. Warmly recommended.

Review: British producer Birdee has been quietly doing his thing since the turn of the decade, delivering a string of underground nu-disco hits on a variety of labels. Here he returns to ISM three months after his last outing (the fine Love EP), this time with a trio of ear-pleasing Balearic boogie productions. Vocalist Chloe Amber guest stars on title track "Give Into Love", a sumptuous, sun-kissed fusion of lilting deep house dreaminess, sparkling '80s soul sounds and hazy disco warmth. With its jammed-out analogue synth riffs, fizzing electronics and elastic bass guitar parts, "Tonite" is an essential instrumental workout, while "Dinamo" alternates between sumptuous melodiousness and stripped-back, bass-driven disco-funk heaviness.

Review: Whoever heard of a Siberian heat wave? Well Russia's Sunner Soul is just that - tirelessly providing warm and summery disco cuts from his icy bolthole. Here on the Lowdown EP we get four more of his delicious instalments. The title track is all twangy bass loops and The Hustle style flute melodies, "Dr Love" is a real banger, with a thumping kick propelling a loop clavinet riff and lots of spacey effects and "Wonderland Disco" spread a positive message of change over a snazzy disco-house rhythm. Lastly "Filtered Punk" displays a little French Touch in it's merciless filtering of some vintage boogie.

Review: Earthboogie - aka London soundsystem owners Izaak Gray and Nicola Robinson - make their wax debut with three raw, groove laden disco blends. Digging deep into both afrofunk and Italo roots, there's a universal musical language that grabs you physically across all three cuts. "Mr Mystery" sits between Booker T & The Mgs and Daniele Baldelli while "Route Ten To Interzone" is an energetic township jam with added synth sheen. Finally we're seduced by the Balearic weaves, ripples, twangs and horns of "The EB Theme". A rainbow of vibes from start to finish, this one's hard to put down.

Review: Pete Herbert and Phil Mison's Reverso 68 project is hard to beat when it comes to classically-informed disco, Balearic and house music, having shored up on Eskimo, and Is It Balearic? in the past. It's been some time since they dropped fresh productions of their own, so this new four-tracker comes as a welcome injection of seasoned, high-end grooves for the slow but heavy part of the night. "Piece Together" is a natural opening gambit, letting acid basslines rub up against delayed strafes of synth and subtle guitar chops in the most grooving of ways. It's set the perfect tone for the rest of the EP to follow...

Review: Scalpel-wielding rework merchant Brother J last appeared on Superbreak way back in 2012. While that was part of a multi-artist extravaganza, this is a solo EP packed to the rafters with club-ready rearrangements. He begins with a fine pair of disco dubs, first adding a rolling vibe to the rubbery and attractive "Round Corners" before doffing a cap to Afro-disco on the horn-heavy goodness of "International". Elsewhere, be sure to check out the spiraling horn lines and extra-compressed bass of disco-funk number "Journey", the sharp horns, dense percussion and filter tricks of "Body Bait" (a track previously re-edited by the Unabombers some years back) and the glassy-eyed heaviness of "Soul Power".

Review: More from Bristol-based party-starters Boogie Cafe, whose recent releases have impressively straddled the fine line between tooled-up re-edits and all-original productions. First they've persuaded New York-based Bristolian DJ Nature to remix current Bristol resident Admin. The man formerly known as DJ Milo does a terrific job, too, offering up a trippy chunk of loose, breakeat-driven, deep house disco that boasts serious amounts of energy. Then, Admin remixes Chezz's "Bossa", wrapping spacey synthesizer motifs and a killer synth bassline around a superbly fluid and crispy broken-house groove. It's a seriously soulful interpretation, and arguably the stronger of the two tracks.

Review: If you're looking for an eclectic bunch of 4/4 floorfillers, this goodtime four-tracker from the mysterious Martin Ruppert camp should fit the bill. Check, for example, the heavy, relentless bass guitar loops, bouncy disco-house drums and cut-up vocal and orchestral samples driving Phonk D's party-starting "Gonzo", and the low-slung, psychedelic drug-chug that is Le Rebrique's hypnotic, filter-heavy "Keep The Flow". Elsewhere, Jacob Stoy and Le Rubrique join forces on the beach-warm, picturesque deep house flutter of "Cafe KOZ", while Dan Bay tiptoes the fine line between sub-heavy dub pressure and lo-fi deep house on the spaced-out goodness of "Kurdistan Dada".

Review: Given his credentials and track record, it's unsurprising that original disco and boogie artists are willing to let Joey Negro play around with their biggest hits. His first stab at this kind of multi-track remix, 2014's Remixed With Love, was such a success that he's decided to unleash another swathe of revisions over two vinyl double-packs. This edition features some killer reworks, including a sublime, on-point rearrangement of Gwen McRae's "Keep The Fire Burning" and a rolling, dubbed-out version of Grace Jones' "Pull Up To The Bumper" that rivals Larry Levan's classic remix. The veteran producer also successfully turns Pockets' "Come Go With Me" into a classic soulful house rub, and pushes Thelma Houston's "I'm Here Again" further towards disco anthem territory.

Jungelknugen (Prins Thomas remix) - (8:56) 122 BPM
from $1.91
Review: Cheekily, Todd Terje has decided to put out these remixes of forthcoming album track "Jungelknugen" before we've had a chance to hear the original version. While it's hard to know how revolutionary these remixes are - or otherwise - it's fair to say that both Four Tet and Prins Thomas have brought their A-game. Keiran Hebden steps up first, layering up looped, kosmiche style synthesizer refrains, wide-eyed piano motifs, low-slung analogue bass, and the kind of jazzy, off-kilter drum machine beats that simultaneously feel loose and sturdy. While undoubtedly impressive, it lacks the hustle and bustle of Prins Thomas's interpretation, which is drive forwards by heavy, bleep techno style sub bass and the producer's own groovy disco drums.

Review: Asa Moto duo Oliver Geerts and Gilles Noe impressed with last year's debut EP, the synth-pop delight that was "Stay Awake/Wanowan Efem". This follow-up for DeeWee, co-produced by label founders (and Soul Wax members) David and Stephen Dewaele, is every bit as impressive, even if its four tracks draw on a much wider palette of influences. Opener "System Naturae" wraps sharp, rave type stabs around a jaunty drum machine groove, deep melody flourishes and warped analogue bass, while "Make Me Prada" is an exercise in alien funk/ambient/synth-pop fusion. Then you'll find the bleep-laden analogue house thrust of "Athina", while closer "Syriacid" is a sweaty jog through acid-fired deep house pastures with wayward pop overtones.

Review: Following a recent dalliance with Brooklyn-based Razor 'N' Tape Reserve, COEO returns to the loving arms of Toy Tonics with another solid four-track excursion. Happily, they hit the ground running with the rushing positivity of "Mydonna", a bumpin' chunk of peak-time house goodness built around some superb disco samples and a bustling groove. The accompanying, "alternate cut" smartly emphasizes some of the original instrumentation, whilst adding some subtle swing to the disco-house drums. On the flip, you'll find the deep, smooth and sensual "Torrow", and the breezy, atmospheric, piano-laden shuffle of "Coast To Coast".

Review: Escape From New York's 1984 cut "Fire In My Heart" has long been considered something of a Balearic classic. Original copies of the Rollerball Records release 12" are hard to come by, though, so this digital version is more than welcome. The original version - all slo-mo electro drums, rubbery dub bass, exotic melodies and intoxicating vocals - is joined by the now infamous Instrumental Dub version, which has been a staple in Balearic DJs' sets for more than 30 years. If that wasn't enough, there's also a chance to savour to woozy, dub-influenced synth-pop of original bonus cut "Won't Be Your Fool".

Review: Fresh from a fine contribution to Local Talk's fifth anniversary compilation, Sameed Rezayan makes his first appearance on G.A.M.M. It sees him exploring similar sonic territory - think jazzy, loop-based, soul-flecked deep house stompers - while serving up two tried and tested dancefloor treats. First up is "Bun", a bouncy and rolling house revision of a groovy chunk of harmonica and saxophone-laden soul-jazz goodness. It's really rather good, though lacks the sheer weightiness of the EP's other track, "Chao". This is, if anything, even loopier, with Sameed building the pressure throughout via darting electric piano keys, simmering strings and a stomping jazz-house groove.

Review: Here's something of a surprise: an EP on Running Back jointly produced by veteran German house producer Boris Dlugosch and rising star Cassara. The inter-generational duo has put together a set of tracks that veers closer to Italo-disco and cheery Balearic goodness than the funk-fuelled peak-time house that Dlugosch is often associated with. Our highlight is probably "Nightflight", a pleasingly baggy concoction that wraps alien melodies and vintage synthesizer motifs around a sparse drum machine groove. That said, opener "Traveller", which sounds like a cross between Electra's 1982 classic "Feels Good (Carrots & Beats)" and lightly bouncy house, and sparkling Italo-disco-meets-Daft Punk throb-job "Intervox" are also rather good.

Throwing vocals powerhouse Jacqui George into the mix and the results are off the hook. "Feeling Me" is an infectious homage to the American soul and funk world of the early 80s, totally classy. Yam Who? also appears, remixing the track into the 21st century by adding some tougher house undercarriage to the chassis. Alan Dixon stretches the tune to over seven minutes, concentrating on the top line melodies and a rolling bassline.

Saturn's Return - (5:54) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.91
Review: Since forming the Bermuda band last year, Aussie adventurer Harvey Sutherland has delivered a string of loose, oven-hot singles that effortlessly combine the best of boogie, soul, jazz-funk and Beatdown style deep house. With Bermuda providing live drums, keys, guitar and bass, Expectations sees Sutherland continue this fine run of form. It's a mini album chocked full of sparkling, sun-kissed cuts that defy simple categorization. For example, "Coast 2 Coast" expertly fuses a deep house aesthetic with elements of P-funk and jazz-funk, while the deep and spacey "Expectations" and "Spiders" - the latter also blessed with sublime strings - feel more horizontal and Balearic in tone. The strings return on the Metro Area-ish brilliance of "Saturn's Return", which may well be the set's most beguiling moment.

Review: Here's something to get the blood pumping: a fresh Ron Trent remix of the title track from legendary Brazilian jazz-funk outfit Azymuth's most recent album, 2016's "Fenix". The original version is, of course, rather tidy - think darting synths and vocoder lines, dexterous slap-bass and rich, life-affirming chords - but Trent still manages to serve up a seriously good alternative version. He appears to have utilized every bit of individual instrumentation found on the master tapes, offering a subtle deep house/jazz-funk fusion cut full of loose-limbed drumming, intertwined solos and chords that pulse with sun-kissed positivity. It's not a particularly revolutionary remix, but when the musicianship is this good, why change it?

Review: On this fine collection of quirky but floor-friendly reworks, Russian re-editor Phil Gerus digs deep into his collection of obscure European dancefloor gems from the early 1980s. "Agent Yuri" is a supremely groovy rearrangement of a rolling boogie gem, with Gerus craftily switching between house style loop manipulation and extended passages from the obscure original track. "Mr Hero" sees Gerus take his scalpel to a fine chunk of guitar-wielding AOR/strobe-friendly Italo-disco fusion, along the way doffing a cap to Tiger & Woods, while "Be My Lova" tastefully shuffles around elements from an eccentric chunk of skewed, disco-era synth-pop.

Review: Three years on from their last full-length excursion - the fine Borough 2 Borough on Delusions of Grandeur - Craig Smith and The Revenge return with their third 6th Borough Project album. Predictably, it's a fine set, with the duo tweaking their now familiar blueprint - think sample heavy, Balearic-minded deep house built around killer grooves and impeccable production - to guarantee a slightly more eclectic listening experience. So, while there are moments of locked-in dancefloor hypnotism - see "The Weight" and acid-gospel thump of "Tainted Dub" - they're accompanied by trips into wide-eyed, loved-up two-step territory (brilliant closer "Back Where It All Began"), seductive, synth-heavy dreaminess (Paul Joseph hook-up "Find Your Rhythm"), intoxicating downtempo chuggers ("Someday"), and much more besides.

Review: Even Brenden's CHMMR project is giving the Scandinavian scene a renewed sense of freshness and subtlety when it comes to hazy, downtempo beats. The producer is back on Norway's sublime Full Pupp imprint with a gorgeous LP that spans just about ever corner of the electronic dance framework that resides left of field. Auto is a gorgeous piece of work, from its slow, lingering sense of euphoria that spans the entirety of its ten tracks, to the elegance and precision of the melodies themselves. Balearic might be one way to describe this colourful composition of sounds, but we believe that it goes much further than that, and actually resides in the enlarged house domain. This, of course, is for your slower, and perhaps earlier sets...and by early we mean early hours.

Review: The 14th release on the fast-rising Play Pal imprint comes from Skelesys, whose previous outings have been on the techier side of house. This time round, the Beunos Aries born, Berlin-based producer has decided to flip the script. Opener "Nebula" is a pitched-down chugger laden with heavy analogue bass and warped electronics, while "This is Our Favourite Day" wraps stylish, post punk style guitar solos around a Nein style psychedelic nu-disco groove. There are more eyes-closed guitar solos to be found on "The Path", a dark and foreboding number full of incessant drum machine handclaps, wonky electronics and twisted bass. Of the three accompanying remixes, it's Peza's sparkling, Italo-disco influenced re-make of "Nebula" that stands out.

Review: G.A.M.M's man in Paris, Young Pulse, is a talented chap. His periodic re-edit releases on the long-serving Swedish label have been amongst the most impressive rework-heavy EPs of recent years. Volume 4 is a little less expansive than usual, boasting just two cuts; happily, though, both are superb. "Everybody, Free Your Body" is a soaring, spiraling rearrangement and extension of The Dells largely overlooked 1977 album cut "Get On Down", which sounds like the stuff memorable midnight moments are made of. On the virtual flipside you'll find the similarly soulful and funk-fuelled "Don't YouKnow, Baby", a superb straightening out and subtle beef-up of L.T.D's 1980 jam "Don'tcha Know".

Review: Medlar is the first producer to contribute some tried-and-tested secret weapons to the For Discos Only series, a project founded to share the kind of fully licensed, "secret mixes" and "private edits" that were once a huge part of DJ culture. Having previously got busy with the West End discography, this time round Medlar is mining the vast TK Disco catalogue. He begins with the fuzzy dancefloor sleaze of the Timmy Thomas and Queen Samantha-sampling "Shake It", which is accompanied by a gently pulsing, Italo-disco influenced rework by Mytron and Orfofo. Elsewhere, Medlar heads for spaced-out electrofunk pastures on the intergalactic, bass-heavy shuffle of "Tonight", before joining the dots between Jimmy 'Bo' Horne, King Sporty, dub disco and proto-house on the EP standout "Imaginary Dub".

Review: Boston master digger Kon presents Kon & The Gang, a splendid selection of low slung grooves, slo-mo house and deep disco. The 'king of edits' serves up exclusive, unreleased music from himself and a variety of his current favourite artists including Truccy (better known as Compost's Rainer Truby and Corrado Bucci) who present "Closer", a gorgeous house jam with a rolling groove featuring all the good stuff: swirling Rhodes keys, groovy congas and hypnotic vox. Man on the moment Eli Escobar from NYC who offers up the infectious Bushwick loft party vibes of "Back 2 Luv (feat Steven Klavier)". Doc Daneeka, most usually known for his techno work also appears with the ultra deep "I Promise (feat Seven Davis Jr - Kon Rework)" which was a real highlight too!
