Review: Hard-working Denver based label Gazeebo International has become a must-check label in recent times, releasing a healthy slew of EPs and launching a sister label. Here they drop another bumper selection of tunes, this time from producer Avanti. The tracks that make up Night Flight offer various atmospheric takes on analogue nu-disco, from the deep and bubbling "Telesforos Journey" and uber-slow "Much Love" to the sparkling grooves of opener "Parallel Universe". Label bossman Gazeebo reworks the deep "Nuclear Baby", turning it into a breezy fusion of analogue Italo and waspish deep house.

Review: Further proof of the constant rise of Mexican post-disco (or should that be post nu-disco?) arrives in the shape of The End Has No End, a seven-track mini-album from Mexico City-based twosome Avanti. With a delightfully slow tempo, rubbery post-punk bass, dubwise effects and crazy industrial funk sax aplenty, it comes on like some kind of long lost early '80s Latin space funk masterpiece. There's plenty for those of a horizontal persuasion to enjoy, from the low-slung grittiness of "Take It" and smacked-out post Balearic groovery of "Final Discourse", to the weird-out guitars and stuttering synth-bass of "Dead End". Recommended.

Review: On previous outings for Gazeebo, Chopshop and others, Kiwi disco boffin DJ Raw Sugar has blurred the boundaries between the humble re-edit and sample-heavy trickery. Here he offers up a wonderfully atmospheric, slo-mo burner that's more original composition than cheeky scalpel job. "Disco Land" bumps along on a loose, languid break, utilizing swirling organs and starry synths to create a delightfully hypnotic mood piece. Much contemporary 'slo-mo' music can be infuriatingly rigid; "Disco Land" is almost the polar opposite. Label boss Gazeebo stretches out the groove and adds a head-nodding kick on his epic rework, while bonus cut "I Wanna Give You My Love" swims in the crystal clear waters between elastic disco and comfy deep house.

Review: For their latest sneaky dancefloor assault, serial scalpel bandits Gazeebo look to DJ Raw Sugar for inspiration. He duly delivers, offering up a tasteful "Redub" of Marlena Shaw's much-played (and much-sampled) "Woman Of The Ghetto". It's a subtle transformation, adding some nice electronics and dubby deep house swing to the original groove. If you dig the Marathon Men material on GAMM, this will be right up your alley. Hotbox and Gazeebo are also on remix duty; the latter lays down a Balearic-ish interpretation that dispatches with much of the charm of the original, while the former go all touchy-feely deep house with solid results.

Review: Colorado label Gazeebo International has cut a steady path through the dance world over the last few years with their unique blend of erotically charged slo-mo disco. Label stalwart DJ Steef provides their latest release, which features five slice of quirky leftfield dance. "Source Bal" is total stoned-on-a-beach cosmic disco joy, "Music Of The Hot" is heavily compressed electro-disco, "Satisfied V1" is loopy minimal tech-house with a surprise blues vocal sample, "Tiger Lady" is more your Italo-disco fare and finally "Satisfied V2" goes deeper than original for some afterhours vibes.

Review: If there is such a thing, Gazeebo's "Adults Only" series is "porno-disco". Certainly, there's a cheeky bent to proceedings - "Suck My Photon" opens with a blast of orgasmic sampling, and there's a sweaty bump-and-grind to the sparkly nu-disco grooves that could certainly be described as dirty. Faze Action don their Rudy's Midnight Machine guise for a fist-pumpin' rework that gets just the right balance between cheery campery and hip-shaking dancefloor pomp. The money shot is provided by the Space Dub - a stripped-down version that retains the original's core dancefloor thrills.

Review: Canadian disco deviant Gazeebo returns with the third (count 'em) instalment of his well-respected Adults Only series. This time round, there's no overdubbed groans, just a heavy dose of contemporary electrofunk that gleefully joins the dots between original synth disco, Italo and noughties nu-disco. The bottom end is heavy, the beats snappy and the synths authentically vintage. Orlando-based Whisky Disco man Sleazy McQueen provides the standout remix, upping the tempo and adding some swing to the beats on a swirling, funk-laden nudisco take. There's also a delightful blast of Italo campness in the form of Zoe's Raygun Remix - the most markedly different of all the included revisions.

Review: Another week, another Gazeebo release! This time, the ever-productive disco crew turn their attention to the spacier end of the spectrum, offering an eight-track mini-album packed with sample-heavy nu-disco, electrofunk and boogie grooves. Expect a variety of sharply dancefloor focused cuts, from the slo-mo, solar system bounce of "Planet Boogie" (kind of like Chicken Lips after a few too many spliffs) to the 'everything but the kitchen sink' fun of "Hyperspace Hotmix" via the midtempo Rhodes 'n' reverb plod of "Red Eye To Saturn". Also included is a handy EFX DJ tool - all cosmic noises and alien electronics.

Review: The tireless Jon Nedza once again dons his Gazeebo guise, this time for a remixed version of his Made In Mars mini-album. There are three tracks from the original set under the remix knife ("Hyperspace Hotmix", "Planet Boogie" and "Red Eye To Saturn"), with a pleasing variety of reworks on offer. Contrast, for example, the electroboogie-era hip-hop vibes of DJ Raw Sugar's version of "Hyperspace Hotmix" with Roctiv's two deep house-meets-electrofunk mixes of the same track. While all of these rubs hit the mark, it's Trotter who delivers the stand-out remix, layering subtle scratches and hip-hop vocal samples over a laidback disco groove featuring live bass, pianos and clavinet chords.

Review: Romanian producer Razvan Ghenciu is going places in the nu-disco universe, having already released on the Los Grandes label, he now returns on Gazeebo International. Perfectly suited to the label's woozy cosmic ethos, this EP is a collection of three exquisitely produced forays into the cosmos. "Plus Lights" is a mid tempo funk workout with a slinky bassline wrapping around gentle bongos, spacey toms and chiming guitar work, "Wanderlust" is a slow and trippy accidental stumble into an exotic sauna scene from an old blue movie and finally "Barefoot" is a lazy, galloping soundtrack to a yacht party at sunset.

Review: Denver, Colorado-based Ejay Toledo has provided slo-mo house and disco lovers with some notable jams in recent times, with releases on Editorial, Audio Parallax and Aspect Audio. Here he returns to Gazeebo International with an album's worth of atmospheric, head-nodding grooves. There's much to admire, from the sparse, West Coast deep house of "Burning" (also available in cosy Heion remix form) and dubby disco escapism of "Fever", to the old skool US house bump of "Moog Moods" and Rurals-ish "InLove". There's a lovely bonus in the shape of a typically deep and groovy, synth-laden rework of "InLove" from In The Woods regular Joseph Terruel, too.

Review: Having provided digital DJs with all manner of cut-and-paste escapades over the past couple of years, the Gazeebo label is moving towards original production. This two-tracker from Hotbox lies somewhere between the two schools of thought. On one hand, it bears all the hallmarks of the sample-heavy, slo-mo disco edit sound (think Nicholas, Matthew Kyle, Andy Ash etc). On the other, both tracks are clearly original deep house productions. However you class "Pitched Down Bound", the material is pretty strong - most notably the smoky, head-nodding delights of "Marvin's Gangster Groove". Certainly, it's the best thing Gazeebo has released for years.

Review: Shaggy haired Aussie surfer dude, Jad Lee, has chosen an eyebrow-raising moniker for his slick disco edits and remixes persona, but it certainly gets him noticed! Anyway ladyboys and slick disco edits are perfectly in keeping with saucy groove peddlers, Gazeebo International. "Closer" takes a loop from one smooth early 80s synth-funk cut, perfect beach party fodder. "Babe" is hypnotic electro-boogie, but it's the monumental "What About George & Ringo", which takes some recent sentimental ramblings of Paul McCartney and sets them to a throbbing Balearic rhythm, that hilariously steals the show.

Review: Since moving away from re-edits, the Gazeebo International label has really come into its own. They've also started to unearth some interesting new talent. Chief among these is Moon Modd, AKA 22 year-old Belarussian Alexey Vorobyov. Like a number of his Eastern European contemporaries, Vorobyov seems primarily interested in making fearlessly melodic nu-disco that sits somewhere between ambient, electronica and Balearica. It's a pleasing sound, all told, with much to admire. The three tracks showcased here are all worth a listen, with the sunny, organ-heavy "Scarlet Sunset" and bleep-heavy rush of the ludicrously positive "Constellation" standing out.

Review: More loose limbed disco tomfoolery on the relentless Gazeebo International imprint, this time from the oddly named This Is A Recording. In its original form, "Southern Neon Lights" offers discerning disco DJs a jaunty fusion of space disco bottom end, dubwise effects and air guitar-friendly riffery. It's an unusual combination, but one that works surprisingly well. Bossman Gazeebo handles remix duties, turning in a sprightly rework that re-casts the original as an organ-laden dub disco jam. There's plenty of delay for those who like that kind of thing (and, let's face it, who doesn't?), plus a bombastic new bassline to enjoy.
