Kasper Bjorke & His Friendly Ghost - "The Great Derangement" (Catz 'N Dogz & Pol_On Skandal remix) - (6:32) 120 BPM

Review: After impressing with a series of decent contributions to re-edit EPs from Chopshop and Man made music, Japan's Beaten Space Probe (AKA producer Shota Tanaka) strikes out on his own. The mood throughout Beaten Space Probe 01 is celebratory, as Tanaka subtly extends, tweaks and improves a string of groove-heavy disco jams. The four-track menu includes a particularly tasty extension of Loletta Holloway's "Love Sensation" and the deliciously optimistic "Nine Lives", a sugary sweet but surprisingly meaty edit that builds to a blistering climax. Best of all, though, is opener "Boogie Prancin", which is as addictive as it is cheery. That's very, by the way.

Review: Having impressed with the first collection of re-edits earlier in 2012, the Legendary 1979 Orchestra gather together more floor-friendly reworks from friends and associates on their own Legendary Sound Research imprint. With different tempos, sounds and styles at play, it's a well-rounded collection. Contrast, for example, the tough 80s-electro-goes house vibes of Legendary 1979 Orchestra's "Burning" and the slow, soulful bump of 78 Edits' "Can't Have My Love". Or, for that matter, the breezy party vibes of Andrei's "Let's Go Raw" and the heavy funk of Richmed's "Do Your Thang". There's also some more 80s disco tweakery from Spanish edit workhorse Rayko.

Review: There's an authenticity to the multi-coloured disco revivalism of Drop Out Orchestra that's hard to dislike. While their music is more often than not firmly focused on contemporary dancefloors - see the nu-disco of "Made Fists" or the Italo-and-electrofunk influenced goodness of "Trees, Grass and Stones" - they're not afraid to proudly display their influences. This six-track EP for File Under Disco comes loaded with original instrumentation - rubbery electric bass, parping horns, soaring strings, loose drums - and unashamedly fun tracks that touch on disco-funk ("Red Beans"), Salsoul-ish disco-pomp ("The National Theatre", "Day Vague") and even jazz-funk (the Blue Feather-ish "The Blue Train"). As a result, it's a pleasing blast of retro-futurist disco fun.

Review: Kojack continue to transfer the contents of their vaults to the digital realm with this latest split EP of remixes by Mike Burns. "You Can Dance" is the aural equivalent of taking a hit of poppers in the midst of a carnival with the biggest firework display exploding at the same time. In other words: a big camp monster. With a capital 'M'. "I Believe" isn't far off either - sounding like the neon-infused future-boogie featured in the 25th century disco scenes in Buck Rogers (younger readers, Google it).

Review: On the back of their decidedly smoochy Show Me Love EP, the scalpel fiends and disco/house crossover monkeys at Editorial HQ take another trip into the world of soft-focus groovery. As usual, there's plenty of decidedly touchy-feely fare to enjoy, from the tough bass and twinkling synths of Elias Tzikas' "Just For You" and Tiger & Woods-on-valium vibes of Sellouts' "Let Me Work", to the sensual, slo-mo soul of Get Down Edits' "Two-Timin' Lady". The ever-cheeky Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee pair up for a silly, delay-laden re-tweak of the Knight Rider theme tune (really), whilst Debonair offers up a slick chunk of rush-inducing disco-house loveliness. Top stuff.

Review: Hailing from Los Angeles, Skaggs is an upcoming producer on a 'high tech future funk' mission. For his debut release on Jalapeno, he does just that: "Finish Line" is an infectious slice of electro-funk that escalates into a lovely disco-house workout. His pal Lonely Boy delivers a killer remix too, which is nine minutes of deep funky house with added doomy synth work.

Review: When it comes to disco reversions, remixers don't come much bigger than Metro Area's Darshan Jesrani. Here we find him slicing up intriguing new synth pop act Disco Double. The main mix rolls with a delightfully playful analogue bassline that complements every second the falsetto vocals. For something a little deeper head for the spit-roast dub where the drums are stripped back to a more tribal flavour and the synths are dubbed out to perfection. Release your "Demons" within today!

Review: Terje Olsen doesn't release many records, but when he does they tend to be pretty special. This surprise EP for Running Back is his only his fifth original single in seven years, but it's arguably his best yet. "Ragysh" is devilishly simple, a naggingly hypnotic house/ electronic disco head-nodder that builds to a gasping climax of chic, intergalactic melodies. It's partnered by "Bonysh", a dubwise beats track that ekes maximum thrills from little more than ever-changing percussion. "Snooze For Love" - available in dancefloor and downtempo versions - continues the stargazing theme, offering up an uber-Balearic mix of bleep melodies, dozy chords and sleepwalking percussion.

Review: Hot Creations team member Miguel Campbell drops his debut on the label replete with a remix from Richy Ahmed. "Baby I Got It" simply belongs to Hot Creations; summer vibes, modern house, simple b-line and undeniably primed for a sweaty dancefloor. Second up "Something Special" goes down a luscious route with long, drawn-out synths, groovy bass and more summery female vocals. Mr Ahmed meanwhile takes remix duties for "Baby I Got It" and attacks with dark piercing twists and eerie turns.

Review: Judging by the inherent floating sensation that runs through "Just Think About It", it would seem that Lithuanian producer Mario Basanov has found his muse in Miss Bee. Regular followers of Under The Shade output will know the former has already worked his magic with the latter, having remixed her collaboration with Rampi earlier this year. It's a partnership that works wonders, with Miss Bee's sultry tones the perfect match for Basanov's elastic treatment of analogue sounds and upwards glancing melodics. The usual array of remixes sees Art Of Tones calling shotgun and delivering a remix that swerves proceedings down a decidedly rump shaking disco path, with some excellent key stabs throughout. This is matched by the Social Disco Club and Mirror People remix that builds brilliantly from the glistening opening few bars into an excellent live disco chug - just wait for those piano lines to come soaring in!

Review: A classy set of rerubs from the Disco Tech crew - this time adding some subtle beats to b-boy classics like Gwen McCrae's "90% of Me Is You" and Wendy Rene's "After Laughter Comes Tears" (sampled by the Wu-Tang and recently rejigged by Nicolas Jaar too). There's also tasty beefed-up versions of Al Green and UK soul man Eddy Grant too.

Review: Somnambulant sonic flavours abound as NY house duo make their debut on Southern Fried with "Stay Up Here". Swaying with delicate pianos yet pumping with a prominent acid hook and sparkling with Miss Bee's lush vocal, it's deep without any danger of limpness. Remix-wise both Bonar Bradberry and The Rhythm Odyssey deliver the goods. Bonar spaces things out a little and adds a trippier, more yearning edge to the groove while The Rhythm Odyssey (AKA Dean Meredith from Chicken Lips) dub-funks out the whole affair with a powerful synth bassline. Lovely.

Review: One year in and the 'House of Disco' label continues to move from strength to strength. The label, spawned from a blog to which is shares it's name, has risen majestically to the top of an ever increasing pile of disco imprints. There is no real mystery surrounding its success, only the best productions and edits find their way onto the labels releases, carefully hand picked with due care and attention. The digital age has made owning a label no longer the pastime of millionaire playboys with a penchant for cylindrical percussive instruments, any Tom, Dick & Harry can claim to own a label these days, and often all three do... it would be churlish to suggest there are no decent digital only imprints out there, a couple of labels spring to mind, however, the discerning jock understands that any label willing to take the time, effort and risk of pressing up some vinyl must really believe in what they are doing and have a deep understanding of the scene's DJs and fans. This, the fourth release on the label entitled 'Busy Tone EP' is a great example of the complimentary A&R which is a mainstay of the label. First up we have a slo-mo looper from Scottish producer (Ali) OOFT! The track respectfully uses a synth and vocal sample from disco group 'Maze', slowly building into a real crowd pleaser. Next up we have German duo Daniel Solar & Andi De Luxe, taking time out from running their own label (Dikso) to drop the string led dance floor bomb 'Seventh'. 'Debonair' makes his second outing on the 'House of Disco' this time turning in an impeccable rework of the Garage classic 'Just How Sweet is Your Love'. And last up we have loop master 'Late Nite Tuff Guy' who brings the EP to a chugging finale, amazing strings and a hypnotic beat make this one of the highlights of the EP. Collectively; this is a great package, individually; all the tracks are must haves.

Review: Given his track record and history, you'd expect this debut album from former Wild Bunch soundsystem member Milo Johnson to be pretty special. While it's far from perfect, it's certainly an excellent set. Musically, it blurs the boundaries between edits, original production and sample love, featuring tracks created using spoken word samples and snippets from some of his favourite obscure records. There are forays into shuffling, near soulful house (the two-part "Sexual Tension"), broken house ("Yearn"), disco-funk (the low-slung "With Your Body"), string-drenched, Ugly Edits-ish disco ("Return of the Savage") and smooth grooves ("Tacky Stuff"), all produced with his traditional dubwise finish. Recommended.

Review: With his Midnight Riot compilations, Yam Who has proved to be a shrewd mover. By focusing largely on the edits-not-edits sound - where disco and electrofunk meets deep house - he's managed to catch the zeitgeist of a scene that remains hugely popular. This third volume reads like a veritable who's who of contemporary talent, featuring both well-known names (Ilya Santana, Rayko, Sleazy McQueen, Get Down Edits) and rising stars (Shit Hot Soundsystem, Jimmy The Twin, B-Jam, the excellent Stupid Human). Musically, it largely delivers what you'd expect, expertly moving between delay-laden disco dubbiness, Tiger & Woods-ish disco-house and starlight nu-boogie.

Review: Living in Siberia has never stopped Alexander Chebankov from donning the proverbial Hawaiian shirt and producing soundtracks for dreamier, sunnier climes. Here, as Sunner Soul, he deliver three slowed down wonders - "Love Will Find A Way" is a sumptuous production that teases out a velvety 80s soul sample of Lionel Richie at his most seductive. "So Much Time" is a cosmic jam that builds into a soul belter, and finally "Together Again" demonstrates how vintage funk when edited, looped and filtered kind of becomes vintage house.

Review: Despite making a name for himself in his hometown of Portland, Oregon, Elliot Thomas has yet to make his mark in electronic music at large. Judging by this first solo single for Voyeurthythm, he could be a name to watch in coming years. Brimming with snappy analogue drums, vintage synths and tear-jerking melodies, "Sirius" is a delightful slab of stargazing deepness with some impressive influences (early Chicago deep house, the Burrell brothers, classic Detroit techno). It sounds like something that could have been made in '88 or '89, right down to the analogue warmth present throughout. "Desert Light" follows a similar template, delivering bubbling electronic arpeggios, yearning synth melodies and subdued analogue drums. Recommended.
