Review: The usually productive Mullet imprint has been relatively quiet of late. Here, they turn to old friend Dabeull, a Parisian producer who first released on the label back in 2010. The talkbox-loving studio boffin channels the spirit of Roger Troutman and Bernard Wright on "Breakaway", a kind of super-slick, synth-heavy love letter to '80s soul and loved-up electrofunk. It's actually rather good, capturing the spirit of the period - and the sound, of course - without resorting to pastiche. Manuel Portio apes fellow Aussies Freekwency and Inkswel on his synth bass-propelled rework, while label boss Casio Social Club ups the tempo on his dubby, Shep Pettibone-inspired remix.

Review: Following well-regarded outings on Kolour, Dikso and House of Disko, Daniel Solar pops up on Nervous Records offshoot Nurvous. With its cutesy vocal, bouncy nu-disco synths, old skool feel and rubbery synth bass, "I Will Have You" sounds like a hit in the making. In some ways, it's quite refreshing that Solar has decided to go down this path; most people in his position would be making their productions deeper, not more accessible. Either way, it's a fun record that neatly joins the dots between old skool house, deep house and sparkling nu-disco.

Review: David August has made a name for himself with a string of deep and sensuous releases on Stil Vor Talent and Diynamic. Now he's set to take things to the next level with a debut long player that expands on all his previous themes. First up, August doesn't do banging - he's way too classy for that, instead the mood here is poignant and evocative beat-led music. Things begin with the epic Euro-tragedy of "Help Me Through" and beyond that we get luxuriant synthpop "For Eternity", haunting acoustic electronica "Anthem" and even some sultry downtempo house ("Until We Shine").

Review: Joey Negro's Z Records have a remarkable knack for knocking out vintage compilation after vintage compilation. Here though, they've really discovered a rare niche of unmined gold courtesy of Nuphonic's David Hill who acts as selector. As Hill explains "gospel music has often followed trends in secular music" and this album captures 24 attempts of gospel getting on the disco and boogie trains. Highlights include the hiNRG longing of "I Need You", the electro-soul of "Love Is The Message" and the piano & strings frenzy of "Awake O Zion".

Review: Whiskey Disco returns with a quartet of blisteringly good reworks from Dead Rose Music Company and Satin Jackets. Dead Rose Music Company open proceedings in style with "Nothin To Ya", a brilliantly low-slung, bass-heavy re-edit-turned-remix of the Jones Girls' "You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else" that turns the delightful original into a dubbed-out chunk of dancefloor chugginess. The more upbeat "Too Late", based on a lesser-known favourite, is almost as good. Satin Jackets' "The Hustle" provides some looser - but still formidably heavy - dewy-eyed disco-soul thrills, while "I Can See The Light" is more Balearic than a wet, sloppy kiss from a grinning stranger.

Review: If Del Strange has a fetish, it's one for the dancefloor sound of early 80s New York. Considering it was such an inspiring sound and era, it's certainly a case of who can blame him? "Freak Yeah!" is an out of control electro-boogie jam, like mid-80s Cameo wrestling with Paul Hardcastle over one of those wiggly key-tar things. Of the three remixes supplied, we reckon it's all about the deep 'n' low Freekwency rework or, depending on your mood, the blistering Divine let loose in a bathhouse abandon of Heather Wilson's hi-NRG mix.

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: Veteran disco/house fusionist DJ Steef returns with a treacle-thick EP of slo-mo and midtempo deep house. Opener "We Could Be Together" makes great use of heady, intoxicating disco strings and tear-jerking pianos, as well as a curiously downbeat vocal sample. There are slightly more upbeat thrills to be found on "Raining", which impressively fuses folksy guitar samples and deep house atmospherics with a heavily electronic nu-disco groove. The FkClub mix injects a bit more energy into the deeper original - think electro-house meets disco-house - while the even deeper Wet Mix sounds like a disco-minded house producer's take on Orbital's "Attached".
