Review: Having already stormed up the sales charts on vinyl, Ron Basejam and Dicky Trisco's Drop Out Orchestra reworks finally make their way to digital download. Trisco's mix is particularly good fun, offering the perfect balance between percussion-laden disco revivalism (check the low-slung walking bass, jazz guitar and heavyweight timbales hits) and slick nu-disco (tasty synth melodies, some 21st century FX). Crazy P man Ron Basejam opts for a housier approach, weighing in with a mix that sits somewhere between electrofunk revivalism, jazz-funk and string-laden deep house. Expect to hear it plenty of times on disco dancefloors over the next six months.

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.

Played by: Dicky Trisco, The Groovers, Gazeebo, Dave Allison, Pete Herbert, Juno Recommends Disco, Shota Tanaka (Beaten Space Probe), Marius Våreid, Cc:disco!, Dynamicron (Los Grandes/Our Nights), Thomass Jackson, Nine Lives, Salon Acapulco, Adriangiordano, Future Feelings, Kenneth Bager
Review: Already boasting support from the likes of Jacques Renault and Jazzanova, File Under Disco are onto another winner with their latest release. Future Feelings are analogue disco enthusiasts with a mission to deliver music 'developed both for dancefloor glory and for sensitive listening'. With its loose, slap-heavy funk bass and shimmering piano, "Neat Disco" straddles the divide between a messy night out and a messy night in with gusto. Disco-nouveau hero, Pete Herbert, hooks up with Dicky Trisco for a teased-out spacey Balearic remix, but we're loving the mournful, Guru-Josh-on-downers trip of "Wonky Disco" the most.

Played by: This Is A Recording, Dicky Trisco, Fingerman, Dave Allison, Superbreak, Andrew Allsgood (Free Association), Pete Herbert, Chris Deepak, Juno Recommends Disco, Jkriv (Deep And Disco/Razor-N-Tape), Shota Tanaka (Beaten Space Probe), Vladislav Moustache Love, Martin Brodin, Cc:disco!, Dirty Mckenzie, Futurewife, Dynamicron (Los Grandes/Our Nights), Ramsey Hercules, B.g. Baarregaard, Future Feelings, Grass Green, Disco Doubles
Review: Brooklyn based disco-house fella, Jkriv, has doing quite nicely indeed with his own Deep & Disco label, but here we have his productions given a double re-working on File Under Disco. First up is nu-disco royalty, The Idjut Boys, who deliver a beguiling spacey jam that's literally drenched in reverb and delay (and even boasts a xylophone solo). Duff Disco, meanwhile go for a mid-tempo looped and trippy infectious chugger.

Played by: Dicky Trisco, Sleazy Mcqueen, Fingerman, Cloned In Vatican!, Alexander Robotnick, Juno Recommends Disco, Jkriv (Deep And Disco/Razor-N-Tape), Peza, Monkey Boots
Review: To date, it's been with their carefully chosen remixes that File Under Disco has most impressed. Here, JKriv and the Disco Machine's recent "Make It Acid" gets a typically out-there dub disco makeover from the Idjut Boys. The veteran duo's remix pits dubbed-out disco drums and echo-laden vocals against a battery of acid field guns - all 303 tweakery, mind-melting riffery and undulating electronics. For those who navigate a course through the twin attractions of house and disco, it should be essential listening. The shorter "Bonus Mix", meanwhile, peppers a robust, cowbell-laden drum track with occasional blasts of eye-watering 303 madness.

Played by: Dicky Trisco, Justin Winks (Casio Social Club), Stan Tropic, Flash Atkins, Pete Herbert, Blackmagicdisco, Juno Recommends Disco, Jkriv (Deep And Disco/Razor-N-Tape), Kid Color, Martin Brodin, Trujillo, Rocco Raimundo, Get Down Edits, Dynamicron (Los Grandes/Our Nights), Heion
Review: Here, Sydney-based Rocco Raimundo takes a giant leap forward with his first original production. It's a bit of a belter, too, developing the trademark sound he initially developed on a string of much-played edits for Disco Deviance, House of Disco and Bedmo Disco Records. "This Is The Love" is typically Australian, mixing sunny horns and pianos with a baggy disco groove and choice vocal samples. It's pretty tasty, all told. Remixes come from Dicky Trisco and Deep&Disco. The former concentrates on the horns, coming up with something that sits midway between disco and classic house. Deep&Disco, meanwhile, deliver a breezy, Latin-tinged revision full of muted trumpets and swinging beats.
