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: If you swap the first letters of Judge Funk's name, you get Fudge Junk. We're still trying to work out if that actually means anything at all. 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.

Review: It's been a long 18 months since the release of Jonny Miller's last EP of reworks on KAT. 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: 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: Manchester duo Scurrilous are really making waves with their US influenced house sounds at the moment and their new track "Suck my soul" is testament to this, taking its cues from Chicago acid house pioneers like K Alexi Shelby. The jackathon continues on with "They say that We're freaks" and the brilliant "Run it" hammers the message home gloriously going for a rolling main room tech house vibe. It's quite redolent of Gruuv or Saced style fare.

Review: By now, we should all know what to expect from Serbian scalpel maestro Tonbe. 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.

On The Floor (Pete Herbert remix) - (6:48) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.83
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.

Review: Having put out their last release on Chez Damier's Balance imprint (the rather fine Tried & Tested EP), 25 Places return to their previous home, Dirt Crew Recordings. As you'd expect, the Party In The Hills EP contains another clutch of floor-friendly deep house explorations. The title track, which successfully blends chopped-up Brazilian vocal samples, sustained note chords, dirty analogue bass and a hustling deep house groove, is undeniably the EP's strongest moment, though the bold and fizzing "Closing Title Song" and chiming, riff-heavy "Backyard Stories" aren't far behind. Those who fancy something a little more ragged should check Laurence Guy's disco-house-meets-acid rework of "Closing Title Song".

Correspondance (Audio Werner remix) - (8:19) 127 BPM
from $1.83
Review: The latest EP from long-serving German duo Cab Drivers - AKA Berlin veterans Daniel Paul and DJ Zky - is true to the original '90s ethos of tech-house. With its' spacey synth motif, bustling synth bassline, gentle acid lines and bouncy, New Jersey influenced beats, "Correspondance" [sic] is a near perfect fusion of techno and deep house elements. The fine, analogue sounding original is remixed by Audio Werner - himself a regular Daniel Paul collaborator - whose deeper, woozier and hazier interpretation drags the track further towards European techno territory. It's a fine rework, though it arguably lacks some of the original slick, life-affirming positivity.

Review: Even by his usual high standards, this EP from Melbourne producer Fantastic Man is pretty darn special. It begins with the tactile, loved-up brilliance of "Galactic Ecstasy", where glistening, intergalactic synthesizer lines and chiming melodies tumble down over restless acid lines and a hustling rhythm track. "Acid Martin" boasts a little more jacking intent, whilst retaining the new age influenced melodies and humid textures more associated with Young Marco's work. He closes proceedings with the superb "Legoman", where winding, intelligent techno style melodies rub shoulders with lusciously deep chords and Project Pablo style deep house breakbeats.

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.

Review: French disco deviant and Robsoul/Ondule mainstay Around 7 is back with more bumpin' and loopy house jams for proper house gangsters on the rather infectious "Discotronic" with its hypnotic bass riff and dusty drums really doing the business. "The Woohh Sound" does exactly what it says on the tin: you could really imagine DJ Sneak or Mark Farina using this one to whip up a frenzy at some Chicago basement party. Finally we have "Kiwi Kawi" which serves up some late night deep house of the smooth and sexy variety.

Review: French legend Ludovic Llorca is back under the Art Of Tones guise for the always impressive Local Talk. Acid soul funk? You bet! Take a listen to I "Just Can't (Get Over It)" and you'll believe there is such a thing. On the flip, the smooth and soulful groove continues on "Dirty Stories" which has an undeniably French touch about it, with good use wonky synths, emotive strings and SP1200 style vocal cut ups. Deepness in the vein of Pepe Braddock or Chateau Flight.

Review: Stee Downes and Lovebirds' are old pals, and first joined forces for a 12" on Winding Road Records five years ago. Their joint effort on this fine EP, "Love's Like Dancing" is something of a cheery, mood-enhancing treat. A slick vocal number that should suit both disco and house floors, it sounds like classic Blackjoy fused with Lovebirds' usual brand of colourful deep house positivity. Crazy P man Jim Baron dons his now familiar Ron Basejam guise on the remix, delivering a bouncy nu-disco/deep house fusion. Lovebirds goes solo on the woozy, Rhodes-laden deep house haziness of "Feel The Bern", while the accompanying Talkbox Edit adds woozy, robotic vocals into the mix whilst retaining the track's original feel and structure.

Review: Steve Huerta's first single for Amadeus, 2014's Apotheke, was widely praised for its' fusion of bumpin' deep house grooves and trippy, tech-tinged sounds. In contrast, Apache Line begins with "Mandala", a breezy, warm and lightly melodious deep house cut that benefits greatly from some intricate synth-work throughout. The deep and musically rich vibe continues on the Kaidi Tatham style broken beat-meets-jazz-funk flex of "EisTee", before Youandewan lends a hand on the bumpin', late night shuffle of "Apache Line". Youandewan gets a chance to go solo, too, completing a fine EP with the deliciously hypnotic, ocean-deep throb of "Yo Endlos".

Tell You No Lie - (8:33) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.83
Review: A taster for Robert Hood's second Floorplan album, this EP puts a spotlight on the radical nature of his musical transformation. On "Music", the visceral rhythms of techno minimalism are gone; in their place is a rolling, tracky groove that boasts a repetitive vocal loop and which has shades of classic Relief /Derrick Carter. "Tell You No Lie" is even more impressive. It sees Hood use a gospel vocal over a stomping, funk guitar-sampling disco house workout. There is an audibly religious dimension to "Tell You No Lie," but Hood's knack for writing a great tune means that it sounds celebratory rather than self-indulgent or preachy.

Review: There's very little to fault about Detroit Swindle's latest EP, which comes backed with remixes from born-again glitch-house maestro Matthew Herbert. The latter delivers a pair of quirky but typically inspired remixes of lead cut "Circular City". Whereas the Swindlers' original is built around rising and falling synthesizer melodies lines, drowsy bass, restless stabs and wonky bass, Herbert's versions cannily create energy and action via wild electronics and low-slung analogue instrumentations. The instrumental is good, but it's the version he's done featuring vocalist Zilla that really stands out. Elsewhere, "Sugar Sugar" is a smile-inducing chunk of deep house positivity, while "Runningoutof" melds their usual melodious dancefloor funk with a dash of Italo-disco.

Review: After strong turns on Ene Records and Love On The Rocks back in 2014, Ess O Ess make a welcome return with this surefooted single for Not An Animal. "Flamingoes & Wombles & The Blue Oyster Cult" is an urgent, driving slice of motorik disco powered by arpeggios, live bass and shamanistic chanting that calls to mind Yello's chart-baiting classic "The Race". The original version keeps the synth levels high throughout, while the "Cyber Dub" teases the ingredients out for a more subtle effect. Whichever side you plump for though, the transcendental qualities are strong on this EP.

This release on Not An Animal represents everything you want to hear in a sleazy party spot, with throbbing arpeggios and shimmering lead lines hovering in a perfect retro-futurist reverie that comes on like second nature to the NYC producer. Daniele Baldelli and Marco Dionigi turn in a remix of "Shut It" that raises the temperature a touch without losing that addictive veneer, making this a record perfect for all kinds of neon-lit abandon.

Review: Covering a Prince-produced electrofunk classic is fraught with danger, but happily UnoMas has managed to pull it off with "Nasty Girl". His original mix of the Vanity6 cover re-casts it as a cheery, 4/4 nu-disco roller full of sparkling synths, tactile house rhythms and breezy vocals. Impressively he repeats the trick with a fine, Ourra-remixed cover of Midnight Express classic "Danger Zone", which is laden with wiggly synth lines, sparkling slap bass, and the super-smooth vocals of Andre Esput. Elsewhere, check out the piano-laden nu-disco bounce of "Hott 4 U (feat. Pirate Stereo)", and the unabashed, party-starting cheeriness of "Get It Girl", which boasts some very familiar samples.

from $1.83
Review: Given the quality of their previous releases - and, in particular, last summer's tasty two-tracker on Beats in Space - hopes are naturally high for Mount Liberation Unlimited's Studio Barnhus debut. Interestingly, "Double Dance Lover" maintains their obsession with improvised music making, but relies more on traditional instrumentation than synths and drum machines. The "radio version" is a sweaty, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink disco exploration that sounds like an unlikely collaboration between the Idjut Boys and fellow Swede Kornel Kovacs. The real killer, though, is the near 15-minute Disko Dubb Mix. This begins as an Italo-disco shuffler, develops into a Prins Thomas style 'Scandolearic disco' groover, and ends in a flurry of sweaty guitar, piano, percussion and synth solos. It's utterly mental, but in the best possible way.

Review: Following impressive collaborative outings on Dirt Crew and their own Splendor & Squalor label, Brame and Hamo once again join forces, this time for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings. Predictably, there's genuine warmth throughout, as the duo showcases more tactile deep house compositions. Opener "Parish Rumours" sets the tone, lacing filter-clad female vocal samples and twinkling melodies over a compressed, cymbal-heavy groove. The filters once again come to the fore on the sweet, soul-sampling "Ghetto For You", while "Hotshot" delivers the kind of loose, hazy and jazz-flecked deep house jam - think hazy horns, tumbling chords, held-note strings and bluesy vocal cut-ups - that evokes images of humid days reclining on Adriatic terraces and Mediterranean cliff-tops.

Interior design advice aside, the title track is one of his strongest for some time; a thrusting, energy-packed bumper packed full of intricate percussion hits, cyclical chords, fuzzy vocal samples, occasional horn stabs and subtle Latin influences. The fun continues with the warm, low-slung bass, drowsy chords and metronomic drum hits of "Rew". Arguably best of all, though, is the accompanying "Rerub" of that track, which transforms it into a swinging, acid-laden jacker.

Review: It's nearly 12 years since Olivier Gregoire first donned the Kolombo alias, and almost as long since he co-founded the LouLou label with regular studio partner Jerome Denis. This hook-up with Bjorn Maria is his first single for some time, and should be considered a strong start to 2017. "Make It Look Good" is a devilishly simple but thrillingly addictive fusion of cowbell-laden disco drums, chunky synth bass, off-kilter hip-hop style vocals and sparkling synthesizer motifs. There's a similarly sparse-but-funky feel to bonus cut "Goin Crazy", which features a slick vocal from Maria that perfectly compliments the quirky, warehouse-friendly vibe of Gregoire's production.

Review: Growing up in Napoli areound the golden years of the city's nightlife, Lexa Hill is said to have been swayed by the rhythms of Chicago and New York. His classic house jam "Da Hood" utilises hands in thr air piano rolls, hip-hop style sampling and swing fuelled rhythms that are all in perfect harmony and also receives some killer remixes. Firstly by Dutchman Man Without A Clue (more like Man Of The Moment!) fresh off killer releases on DFTD and Of Unsound Mind who serves up a dirty and sexy late night rendition while Soulphonix aka DJ Spen, Greg Lewis and Thomas Davis serve up a proper stateside remix just beaming with soul on their killer effort.

Review: Ever since Gerd Janson snapped up his fine Chord Memories EP back in 2014, Shan has enjoyed a productive relationship with Running Back. City Never Sleeps marks the Frankfurt producer's third outing on the hyped house imprint, and boasts a quartet of retro-futurist treats. He doffs a cap to the melodious analogue deep house of the Burrell Brothers and Larry Heard on the delicious title track, before effortlessly emphasizing his own chunky, cymbal-heavy groove on the subtly acid-flecked "Lin FM". "Caiber" sees him sending shivers down the spine via warehouse-friendly piano riifs and boisterous house breakbeats, while closer "691 Beats" is a pulsating, bass-heavy drum workout with added rave riffs.

Review: On the evidence of his latest releases, it feels like Robert Hood is going through a reinvention process. The recent Floorplan gave vent to his gospel influences and now "The Greatest Dancer", under his own name provides an insight into Hood's love of disco. There's not much to the title track, yet this simplicity and clarity of sound is the same aesthetic that drove the original productions that it is indebted to. Over a rolling, housey groove, Hood adds in some sexy funk guitar, sprinkles it with sensuous strings and puts all of the ingredients into a filtered blender. On "Dancer", the approach is even more minimal and straightforward as a walking funk bass guitar is married to a series of claps. This combination runs the risk of sounding like a DFA release, but Hood isn't finished. He adds sassy brass samples and a sexy female vocal, resulting in an arrangement that offers all of the sensuality of disco and the unflinching precision of his minimal techno productions. Call it a reinvention, but it also offers the best of both worlds.

Review: Back in March, Ondule label boss Joss Moog and Sebastien "Around7" Guertau unveiled their 4th Sign project, launching with a fine collection of soul-flecked deepness. This speedy follow-up is every bit as alluring, with the French duo effortlessly floating between a variety of dancefloor moods and tempos. Contrast, for example, the smoky, mid-tempo jazz-house of "The Movement", the string-drenched, sumptuously soulful bump of "Deep Dip", and the near horizontal, slow house head-nod of closer "Lunatique". For those keen on more energetic dancefloor flavours, they've also included a pair of charged-up disco house smashers ("The Right Color", and "Hot Saussice").
