Review: The ever prolific Drop out Orchestra return with another new single, the all-action disco slammer that is "Ego". As with previous releases, the action centres around heavyweight live bass, this time wrapped around hustling funk guitars and the odd burst of jangly piano. It's loose, live and a whole lot of fun. This time round, there's a strong remix package to get stuck into, too, including a rare rework from Black Strobe. The Parisian duo pepper their stripped-back electrofunk version with simmering synth-strings, whilst Lou Teti turns the original into a breezy nu-disco jam. There's also an uber-Balearic, piano-laden version from Tronik Youth that impresses, too.

Review: "I'm a cork on the ocean," chimes the autotune-laden vocal hook on this latest missive from super-productive Swedish disco duo Drop Out Orchestra. The track itself does its best to replicate the feel of floating on the sea, bobbing up and down on a rubbery bed of low-slung bass guitar and cock-rock solos. It's not their finest work, but it's certainly great fun - and funkier than a sailor's undies after a particularly choppy night aboard a tiny fishing vessel. JP Source and the biscuit-loving Gary Baldi (boom-tish) remix, with the former's smooth deep house rub just edging out the latter's piano-laden nu-disco take.

Review: Drop Out Orchestra treat us to three versions of "West Gothic Climax", namely the original 12" mix, an instrumental and a remix from Dana Bergquist. The funk laden, synth heavy original is worth the admission price alone, but it's Bergquist's dubby, heads down refix that is taking the plaudits here at Juno Download HQ - the twisted mid section breakdown is particularly memorable. A dub version which brings the seriously sleazy guitar to the fore rounds off another excellent release from the Swedes.

Review: In recent times, Drop Out Orchestra have moved further towards the worlds of synth-pop and touchy-feely nu-disco. "Your Girl", featuring the vocals of Kinema, continues this journey. While some of their trademarks are present - the rubbery electric bass, disco-flecked guitars, organic sounding percussion etc - the overall impression is of an act attempting to make shimmering, smiling pop music. The Dub wisely makes more use of the original's disco elements, lacing the original's tactile chords atop a guitar-heavy groove. Disturbingly, it also features some needless vocoder vocals. Best of all, though, is Kinema's remix. This offers a sparse and sprightly disco-pop take on the shiny original.

Review: The recent speculation that Todd Terje was responsible for the last Drop Out release - The epic "I Work Out" by Humorous Norwegian Disco Alias - means more people might be inclined to check out the rest of the Swedish imprint's prodigious output. And what better place to start than "Disco Me" the label's in house Orchestra's collaboration with Australian disco icon DJ Agent 86. The Melbourne DJ & Producer has over 20 years of experience and recently set up the Lightspeed Recordings imprint which has been making waves at night throughout the global discothèques. "Disco Me" is robo disco at its finest, a deep percussive groove propelled along by an elastic electro boogie bassline, replete with filtered flourishes for the surprise factor.

Review: Since first emerging at the tail end of 2008, production duo Drop Out Orchestra have proved a reliable source of party-centric disco material. Like many others who originally emerged from the re-edit scene, they've built a career on blending samples, grooves and hooks from original disco and electrofunk records with their own beats and instrumentation. The resultant tracks - edits but not edits, if you will - are rarely less than high quality, as this sprawling collection of their best tracks to date proves. There are 15 dubbed-out disco groovers to enjoy here, including the massive "International Track" and "Man On The Run".
