He Is The Voice I Hear - (10:29) 118 BPM
from $1.83
Review: There's naturally been plenty of hype surrounding The Black Madonna's "He Is The Voice I Hear", which originally dropped on a single-sided 12" at the tail end of 2016. It's undoubtedly the fast-rising Chicagoan's best record to date, and feels like an unashamed tribute to Patrick Cowley's fine productions for disco icon Sylvester. While there are mournful notes - check the extended, beat-less piano intro -it doesn't take long to turn into a deliciously muscular, Italo-disco style chugger laden with razor-sharp strings, bubbling acid lines, and the kind of fluid piano solos that were once a hall mark of Frankie Knuckles' remixes. In other words, it's a fine contemporary disco record from one of dance music's most notable DJs of recent times.

Review: Aussie adventurer Tornado Wallace seems to be getting better with age. Over recent years, he's delivered a string of brilliantly evocative, sun-kissed releases for the likes of ESP Institute, Beats In Space and Second Circle. Lonely Planet is his debut album, and it could well be his strongest release to date. The seven tracks are dreamy, trippy and atmospheric - we'd expect nothing less - and draw on a far wider palette of Balearic influences than we've heard on previous experiences. Coupled with a new-found desire to include more live instrumentation (particularly glistening, Peter Green style guitar passages, drums and exotic flutes), the result is an album that's as evocative, dreamy and humid as anything he's produced to date. In other words, it's a great album and comes highly recommended.

Review: The honour of curating the 44th instalment of Katakana's Edits series has fallen on Disco Funk Spinner, a much respected re-edit guy whose work has appeared on the likes of Midnight Riot, Disco Fruit and Sound Exhibitions. Here though he only manages to provide two jams, but it's quality, not quantity, right? First up we get "Night Strangers" which takes loops from Candi Staton's Bee Gees cover (Nights On Broadway) and adds an accelerated disco house tempo and subtle but funky embellishments. On the digital flip is "On Fire", a clever rework of Peggy Lee's indestructible classic, Fever. Hot stuff!

Review: Sunner Soul is clearly determined to start 2017 in a positive mood. His first EP of the year urges us to have a Good Time, with the producer doing his bit to spread sunshine via a string of impressively warm and summery re-edits. He begins with a blissful ambient tool - perfect for mix intros and such - before expertly reworking a global disco shuffler ("Fuwafuwa Groove"). The swirling peak-time disco of "Good Time" is next, followed by an expertly executed cut-up of Evelyn 'Champagne' King boogie classic "Love Come Down" that offers a subtle nod towards Tiger and Woods. The sweaty disco-funk bump of "Ready To Back" and horn-heavy groover "Rescue Of Time" complete an excellent package.

Played by: YAM WHO?, Sound On Sound
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: We've come accustomed to Kiu D delivering warm, groovy, floor-friendly music that blurs the boundaries between re-editing, remixing, and original production. He's at it again on this first outing for Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint. The EP's four original tracks utilize big chunks of killer old soul, funk, disco and jazz-funk jams, but combine these elements with chunky house beats and woozy deep house flourishes. This is arguably best exemplified on the tactile, sun-kissed swing of "I'm In Your Life" and surging, solo heavy "Jazz or Funk". The package is completed by two tasty reworks: a bass-heavy disco-house revision of "I'm In Your Life" by Voodoo Whiskey, and Twisted Soul Collective's righteous, party disco remix of "Jazz or Funk".

Review: The latest volume in the Surgery Edits series is something of an epic affair, with scalpel-wielding hero Dr Packer offering up no less than eight intricate procedures. It's naturally a mixed bag, with the Australian offering gently beefed-up and quantized versions of both well-known cuts (a well-loved Marvin Gaye classic gets the treatment on "Give It Up", while "Disco Squares" is a punchy revision of a Rick James produced Teena Marie favourite) and lesser-known floor-fillers (the bubbly '80s soul flex of "Your Love Baby", the heavyweight P-funk strut of "Move That Bottom"). There's not a duffer in sight, with jazz-funk style closer "Smoov Groove" and righteous disco-funk bumper "Party Time" arguably the pick of an impressive bunch.

Review: 2017 has started with a bang for fans of French Kiss Records label boss KS French. First was a new instalment in the "Supa Funky Edits" series and now we have a rare full solo EP from man himself. Here on the Bad Soul EP French goes for a vintage soul influenced sound, particularly the sassy and brassy James Brown-sampling opener, "Godfather Edit". Elsewhere there's a nod to his fellow countrymen Daft Punk on the Edwin Birdsong-sampling "Cola Freak Baby", the stomping, bass-fuelled shakedown of "Party Noize" and woozy sax-led boogie on the lo-fi "Give It Up".

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: Given the success of Red Rack'em's hard-to-beat "Wonky Bassline Disco Banger", we were initially skeptical of this remix package. Happily, all involved have done a good job in offering a fresh slant on one of the club hits of 2016. KiNK steals the show with a version that strips out much of the original's disco flavour, instead combining Rack'em's wonky electronics with trippy new noises and freakishly druggy elements. The result is a fine chunk of heavyweight weirdo-house. Classic chief Luke Solomon joins forces with the mighty Eats Everything and Lord Leopard on the virtual flipside, serving up a skewed version that veers from loose disco-house warmth to brain-melting electronic wonkiness, and back again.

Review: There's not much info about this latest offering from the Giant Cuts camp, other than that the four tracks are "classic disco modifications". In practice, that means expert cut and paste re-arrangements of the kind of vintage disco material that was once all the rage in New York City. Check, for example, the early Leroy Burgess vocals, rising orchestration and extra-percussive groove of "Nut Butter", the "Open Sesame"-era disco voodoo of "Aladdin's Groove" - here made even more alluring by the addition of some tasty dub delay - and the break-driven disco-funk thrills of "Wooden Doll", which sounds like a rework of a forgotten T-Connection cut. Also superb is the celebratory bounce of "Dance Party", which smartly focuses on a rubbery groove, layered percussion hits and memorable vocal passages.

Review: For this 49th serving of Disco Fruit, label boss Tonbe has turned to regular contributor Mitiko. Turn Off The Light is a weighty package, with seven sneaky reworks, cut-ups and sample-heavy club tracks to choose from. We're particularly enjoying the groovy, Sade-style dancefloor smoothness of "Let The Spirit Move Me", the jazzy disco bliss of "Turn Off The Light", and the drowsy, mid-tempo deep house shuffle of "I Need You", though there are plenty more highlights elsewhere. Check, for example, the glistening guitar solos of soft-focus disco closer "Lovin You" and the 105 BPM disco-funk party that is "No Attitude".

Review: After an extended summer break, Apersonal Music returns to action via a first EP in five years from Cisco Cisco. It opens with the comforting shuffle of "Jazzy Days", where intricate electric piano lines, woozy chords and soulful vocal samples ride a near horizontal, slow-house groove. It's accompanied by a trademark Ron Basejam remix, which retains the rich, jazzy deep house feel of the original, whilst adding a little more disco swagger. Further disco and boogie influences can be heard on "Jazzy Nights", which is a flickering, synth-heavy deep house treat. Andre Vegas' smooth, sweet and sultry interpretation of that track rounds off a fine E.P.

Highlights include the retweaked Eric B & Rakim/Coldcut jam "Music Just Turns Me On", the six-minute, string laden clap along "Turn It Up" and the squelchy funk grooves of "No Taboos".

This expansive compilation draws together some of the London-based Argentine's finest scalpel moments to date, offering mostly freshly re-mastered versions for extra-loud dancefloor pleasure. There's naturally plenty to enjoy, from the elastic, pitched-down disco-funk of "Sexy Thing" and the soaring disco camp of "Love", to the all-instrumental sleaziness of Sylvester rework "Liquid Gold", and the quirky P-funk throb of "Bottoms Up". He's also included a number of his hip-hop sampling disco mash-ups, all of which are also tried-and-tested dancefloor gold.

However, whilst we all ponder that existential question, lets listen to the music. Yam Who? pack five JF tracks in this single on their Midnight Riot label. Including their own take on "We Want Prince", where the original's crowd-chanting elastic bass hysteria becomes the funkiest disco-funk this side of Minneapolis. Elsewhere "Heads" is thumping mid-80s electro soul, "Rubbanova" is brassy, Loveboat-era boogie and "Deal With This" is deliriously glamorous shimmering disco-house escapism.

The cover of this eighth installment of edits reveals the good doc and colleagues hard at work resurrecting a giant disco ball and the sonic results can be heard on this mini-album. Highlights include the slinky clap-along, "Somebody Else", the noodle-bass moog boogie of "Xpand Your Mind" and the breaks-laden cocktail grind of "Tropical Jump". Good to hear disco has checked outta hospital and back on the dancefloor in full health.

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: It would be fair to refer to Dino Lenny as a "veteran": the Italian producer has been churning out dancefloor hits since the dawn of the '90s. This release sees him join forces with Cajual and Hot Creations regular Doorly for a loving tribute to the joys of club culture. The action centres on a meandering, largely spoken vocal describing a mesmerizing late night dancing experience in "The Magic Room". On the lead version - a tasty re-edit by Lenny and Seth Troxler - this is accompanied by "Lazy" style pianos, and a chunky, disco-tinged house groove. The low-slung guitars and bass are pushed to the fore on Doorly's energy-packed remix, while Luke Solomon doffs a cap to the jazz-flecked boompty sounds of Chicago on his busy rework.

Happily, this delayed follow-up is every bit as good as his previous re-edit releases, and boasts a trio of breezy, sun-flecked dancefloor workouts. He begins with the soul-soaked samba shuffle of "Half a Minute", where twinkling piano lines, snaking sax and sumptuous vocals ride a carnival-friendly warm-up groove, before moving towards deep house pastures on the deliciously hazy "Kalimba Tree" (think Andres covering "Brazilian Rhyme", and you're close). Best of all, though, is "Orere-Elejigbo", a deliciously dubbed-out Afro-Brazilian bumper full of chanted vocal lines, crisp guitar lines and rich, undulating bass.

Review: We're not sure what Hotmood got up to on his recent Rhodes Trip, but whatever it was, it was good enough to result in his latest EP on the mighty Editorial. Boasting four tracks, the EP features the freshest sounds from nu-disco world capital Mexico. "Can You Dig It" opens with smooth, jazzy and Latin-tinged poolside boogie, "Magic Touch" follows up with some looped saxy -fizz, whilst "Check This Out Yo!" veers into funky/disco house territory and "Soul Energy" wraps things up with a heady Fender-Rhodes-lead groover. Slick stuff.

Review: Given that he founded the label two years ago this month, it's something of a surprise to find that Heart Breaker is Danny '80s Child' Worrall's first release on Masterworks Music. As usual, the five re-edits on offer mine the producer's vast collection of '80s electro, P-funk and synth-soul for inspiration. Opener "Dancing Real Close 2 U" is a subtly beefed-up rearrangement of a P-funk/'80s soul fusion, while "The Next Step" is a Tiger & Woods style electrofunk-goes-house loop jam. He changes the formula a little on the organic disco cheeriness of "Love Is U", before reaching for the hairspray on the Jam & Lewis-on-steroids vibe of "Closer 2 Your Luv".

Review: Lately Leeds' Deelicious has seen his loose and groovy tunes grace the likes of Sound Exhibitions and Disco Fruit. Here he rolls out five sizzling new bangers. The urgent slice of socially conscious funk, "Lonely Town Lonely Street", kicks things off, "Trust Me" incorporates housier filtered loops into the mix and the title track is celebratory slice of disco-pop with some ace bloc-rocking breaks and punk-funk bass work. Elsewhere we enter orbit with the melodramatic sci-fi boogie of "Mechanical Body" and "Change Your Mind" is an amazing example of early underground dance music reconfigured by a 21st century perspective.

Review: The kind of names and quality of releases that Brooklyn's Razor N Tape has supported puts them in the disco premier league. Here they enlist Jkriv to provide us with dancing fodder that isn't throwaway stuff. First is his rework of "Bukom Mashie" by Oscar Sulley & The Uhuru Dance Band. The latter, his "King Mashie edit", is a raucous slice of bassy and brassy percussive Afrobeat. Elsewhere an O'Jays classic gets stretched out into eight minutes of slow bump bliss on "The Queen On Her Throne" and resurfaces in a deliciously spare dub called "The Queens Beats". Top notch!

Review: The Bahnsteig 23 crew are flying towards the end of the year with a salvo of essential wares from their established crew and new faces alike. Sweden's Albion Venables has been doing the business on labels such as Ambassador's Reception and Macadam Mambo for the past seven years, and his first turn on Bahnsteig doesn't disappoint. In a flurry of eclecticism, the mood veers from the bubbling kosmische tones of "En Trance" through to the schlocky funk of "Schwarzen Mer", mixing live band dynamics with quirky electronics and keeping the groove delightfully authentic. The diversity maintains on the flip as "City People" taps up a moody New York flavour and "Die Marinette Der Zeit" strikes a more classic funk note.

Now we have the follow-up and it reveals how the label's sound has grown. There are 26 sizzling bangers on board this time, boasting a million delirious dance floor moments. Highlights of which include the fizzy thump-funk of 80s Child's "Computerized", Peza's doomy analogue electro mash up "Filmed Message" and the smooth, synthetic boogie of "Much Too Much" by Deelicious.

Review: You don't need a degree in deduction to work out what's on offer here. As the title suggests, Super Funky Edits Vol. 2 gathers together a quartet of funk-fuelled scalpel works by re-edit scene stalwarts Belabouche and KS French. The former first serves up a slick, toe-tapping interpretation of "Superbad", a groovy, disco-funk number given a little more house flavour, before aiming for the stratosphere on the sweeping, string-drenched disco strut of "Hold On Me". As for KS French, he reaches for the grunting disco-funk hustle on Clav-happy stomper "Grooves All About", before delivering his own slice of shirts-off disco in the shape of "Right Treat".

Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco label seems to be on fire at present, with new EPs of white-hot edits appearing on an almost weekly basis. Predictably, there's more high-grade material on this latest split artist four-tracker. Pontchartain kicks things off with a brilliantly dubbed-out take on Gayle Adams classic "Lifesaver" (previously successfully extended and re-touched by FLX One a few years back), before Osmose delivers organ solos, orgasmic groans and rump shaking beats on "Broadway Kiss". Derek Kaye's "Holdin' On", a deliciously celebratory number full of cheery scat vocals and incessant grooves, and "I Got Your Wang", a cheery, sun-kissed chunk of disco perfection from Rulefinns Kravstor.

The versatile producer wastes no time getting stuck in, starting out with the explosive "Orca" which features one of the most amazing arpeggios this side of "I Feel Love". There's more vintage, synth driven disco vibes on "Minke" or "Logmans Break" while the feel good nu-disco vibes of "Pygmy" are reminiscent of modern greats like Jay Shepheard or Milton Jackson.

Review: Thanks to the sterling work done by the Very Polish Cut-Outs series, we're now all familiar with the previously hidden world of eccentric Eastern European disco. Now that label is no more, fellow Poles Holiday 80 are keen to continue its' good work. The Hotel Victoria EP contains fantastic reworks of four obscure, Balkan disco treats. It's packed with smashers from start to finish; check, for example, the acid-laden, muscular disco-strut of "Teleniedziela", the spiraling, rock-tinged camp of the charged-up "Zabawa W Stylu Folk", and the shuffling, filter-heavy sweetness of early '80s gem "Kta Dat Nam Deszcz". Best of all, though, is the American style disco-funk hustle of "Bez Tego I Owego", which contains some particularly wild organ solos.

Review: Paper Disco's Trash The Wax compilation series certainly offers a lot of bang for your buck. This fourth installment continues the trend, serving up 22 tried-and-tested dancefloor jams for disco-loving DJs. As usual, the selected tracks are a mixture of killer edits (Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee, Solid State, Electric Pendergrass, DJ Rocca & Chris Massey), sparkling remixes (a tasty '80s electrofunk rework of Reggie Got Beats' "It's On Tonight" by Norwegian eccentric Ralph Myerz), and stellar original productions (see 2 Billion Beats' "Bob", Daco's Gladys Knight-sampling throb-job "I Heard It", Picotropico's decidedly Balearic "Time Will Tell"). There's possibly a little more Italo-disco on this edition, but that's no bad thing - especially as the arpeggio-heavy cuts showcased here are universally excellent.

His frequent EPs are aimed fairly and squarely at the dancefloor, delivering a mixture of re-edits, reworks and sample-heavy productions that don't try too hard to impress. This latest EP is full of such cheery, tried-and-tested cuts, from the rolling jazz breaks, comfy Rhodes stabs and fluttering soul vocals of "Gambling Face", and punchy disco-house flavours of "Sweet Love", to the rich, organ-flecked soulfulness of "Those Days", and riotous, disco-goes-hip-house opener "Don't Mess With Us". In other words, it's another rock-solid collection of tasty peak-time bangers from one of the edit scene's most reliable producers.

Review: Jay Airiness is the latest alias of DJ Moar. Known for his work with his nu-disco group Venice Beach, he, as he claims himself: always has his eyes on the groove. With a fresh vision of club music, he has had releases thus far on Diggin Deeper, Editorial, FKR & Rebel Hearts. Starting this fine EP off with "Grand Baie", a deep and summery nu-disco jam reminiscent of Max Essa, he then gets stuck into the funky and filtered funk sleaze of the title track: those vocoded vocals are wicked! "Priceless Love" goes for some more retro vibes from the '80s which is totally bittersweet and irresistible. Then, on a final note, Reverso 68 main man Pete Herbert serves up an always impressive rendition, in this case the title track which has us counting down the days 'til summer.

The Les Edits Du Golem regular turns up the heat on this wildly inventive record, touching on all kinds of styles in the process. "Swiss Cottage" is a slow swinging slice of new wave on a mission, while "Bruzzano" fires off samples in a mad cap Art Of Noise fashion. "Den Tempst" is a more bombastic kind of stomper, and then "Sondrio" veers off into moody soundtrack territory.

There are a whopping six edits to wrap your ears around here, highlights include sensuous 70s boogie, complete with electro bassline, of "Disco Lovin", the protracted hiNRG New Order loops of "Monday Blues" and the shimmering, dry ice soul of "Chocolate Boogie". Fun music for fun times!

Happily, it's a bit of a doozy, with Brooklyn's J Kriv gathering together The Disco Machine band for the first time since 2013's much-played "Make It Hot". Escort's Adeline Michele guests, adding strong, catchy and attractive vocals to an authentic NYC disco bomb built around a Chic style groove, fluid synths, crunchy Clavinet lines and cowbell-heavy percussion. The authenticity of J Kriv's production is highlighted on the accompanying Instrumental, while old pal Dicky Trisco does his best Walter Gibbons impression on a near 11-minute remix that allows each instrumental part room to breathe.

Review: A French DJ with a cheeky sense of humour, Steef tends to alternate between disco edits and original productions. Here, after a break of quire a few months, we get the latter with two tracks of original box jams. "Palpitany" is a chunky, slow burning, electro-jazz-funk-shuffle with gradually ascending Fairlight melodies and acidic squelches. The Survet mix of "Canebiere Man" meanwhile does dip into some vintage sampling for a long and trippy Italo-disco mantra with heavy cosmic overtones.

Review: There will no doubt be much debate about the identity of the "hyped" editor behind GAMM's latest missive - the 'L' in his or her new moniker is, apparently, a clue - but it's the quality of the edits on show that matters most. Opener "Not Easy", a dubbed-out, chopped-up chunk of disco-funk sweetness full of meandering horn lines, rubber electric bass and woozy synths, is arguably the pick of the bunch, though the loopy, dewy-eyed soul-jazz attack that is "Dues Paid Fast/How I Like" is also rather good. Those looking for jazzier dancefloor flavours should also check "Jazz in Italics", a high-octane jazz-dance re-edit full of fluttering flute lines, sweaty drumming and fluid piano solos.

Review: Razor 'N' Tape has been slowly expanding its' outlook in recent years, focusing on original productions just as much as re-edits. Here, they've pulled off something of a coup by snapping up two fresh cuts from Dutch heavyweights Kraak & Smaak. There's the clipped Chic guitars, jaunty analogue bass, undulating Syclops lead lines and gravelly soul vocals of "Way Back Home", and the filter-heavy disco-house throb of "Seb's Party". The package also includes two tasty re-rubs apiece from Ben Sun and Tiger & Woods. Sun offers up a smooth, nu-disco/deep house fusion, followed by a chunkier, classic house sounding affair, while Tiger & Woods offer two superb variants on the same throbbing, electrofunk-meets-Balearic piano house template.

Time to order a Mai Tai, don a loud Hawaiian shirt and start moving! Infectious stuff.

Review: Despite hailing from modern day Norway, Lux Experience's heart remains firmly in the USA during the heady days of the 1970s. Nothing wrong with that as nothing really tops the thrill of the original disco explosion during that wild decade. Here he unearths four more long gems from that time and retweaks them for contemporary dancefloors. "Street Disco" is and accelerated proto-hiHRG opener, "Your Luv" begins as classic French Touch-style diva loops before expanding into more stripped backed boogie and "Freak Mouse" is a bass driven chant-along. Lastly "Prance With Me" wraps things up with some seriously elastic party vibes.
