Review: The first House of Disco 12", released in the summer, set out the label's stall as a home for superior atmospheric, touchy-feely house with more than a dash of disco. This second full-length, featuring tracks from various fast-rising disco/house producers, raises the bar further. There's much to enjoy, from the comfy soul cut-ups and rock solid grooves of Matthew Kyle's "Toni" and the classic deep house blues of Luminodisco's "Too Night" to the E'd-up end of night goodness of The Groovers' "All Night". Best of all, though, is Rocco Raimundo's "Give Me Your Love", a teasing, tantalizing close dance with Luther Vandross and the girl of your dreams.

Review: The hype surrounding Swedish trio Monitor 66 can't have passed you by. If it has, then this debut single for House of Disco is as good a place as any to start. It pitches them as vaguely Balearic deep house heroes with a passion for cut-up R&B vocals, cheery nu-disco synths and chiming melodies. What they're doing isn't particularly new, but it is very now. Hence the hype, presumably. "Tricsuits" is pretty good, though, and comes with a range of hard-hitting remixes. There's the cascading late night deepness-meets-warehouse bass of the Dead Rose Music Company rework, a perfectly pitched tweak from PBR Streetgang, and a fantastically over-blown rework from Roberto Rodriguez. The latter is so large it's almost comically camp.

Review: The House of Disco site launches its new label endeavour of the same name with an impeccable selection of cosmopolitan sounds from four of the contemporary disco scene's most valued selectors. The ubiquitous Nicholas kicks things off with the slinking "Talking About Love" which leans on a soul classic with aplomb, and it's matched by the most upwardly mobile number on this release from Australia's Francis Inferno Orchestra. "Sun Up" is driven by one of those incessantly energetic filtered cores and surrounded by a thumping groove and leaves you gasping for the moment the vocal hook and hats finally kick in. Up next everyone's favourite South American dwelling East European exponent of super slow disco does his thing on "Outstanding" whilst Psychemagik indulges in some carnival leaning house boom on "Carnaval De Transoco". A deft release that corners all aspects of the modern discoteria needs.

Review: One year in and the 'House of Disco' label continues to move from strength to strength. The label, spawned from a blog to which is shares it's name, has risen majestically to the top of an ever increasing pile of disco imprints. There is no real mystery surrounding its success, only the best productions and edits find their way onto the labels releases, carefully hand picked with due care and attention. The digital age has made owning a label no longer the pastime of millionaire playboys with a penchant for cylindrical percussive instruments, any Tom, Dick & Harry can claim to own a label these days, and often all three do... it would be churlish to suggest there are no decent digital only imprints out there, a couple of labels spring to mind, however, the discerning jock understands that any label willing to take the time, effort and risk of pressing up some vinyl must really believe in what they are doing and have a deep understanding of the scene's DJs and fans. This, the fourth release on the label entitled 'Busy Tone EP' is a great example of the complimentary A&R which is a mainstay of the label. First up we have a slo-mo looper from Scottish producer (Ali) OOFT! The track respectfully uses a synth and vocal sample from disco group 'Maze', slowly building into a real crowd pleaser. Next up we have German duo Daniel Solar & Andi De Luxe, taking time out from running their own label (Dikso) to drop the string led dance floor bomb 'Seventh'. 'Debonair' makes his second outing on the 'House of Disco' this time turning in an impeccable rework of the Garage classic 'Just How Sweet is Your Love'. And last up we have loop master 'Late Nite Tuff Guy' who brings the EP to a chugging finale, amazing strings and a hypnotic beat make this one of the highlights of the EP. Collectively; this is a great package, individually; all the tracks are must haves.

Review: Aussie adventurer Rocco Raimundo seems to get better with each release. Having previously impressed with some solid edits-not-edits on Disco Deviance and Bedmo Disco, he's now been snapped up by the House of Disco collective. On The Rocks is arguably his strongest release to date. It develops his filter-heavy, '80s-soul sampling midtempo groovery furthery. "Keep On Keepin' On" brilliantly flips a classic Whispers track, while "Go On & Fly" seductively shimmies between the speakers like a lothario on heat. "Love Glow" inserts some wide-eyed bump into proceedings, while "Night Moves" slowly moves towards musical orgasm with all the style of an E'd-up character in a Mills and Boon novel.

Review: Since launching last year, disco/house website House of Disco's in-house (sorry) imprint has proved to be a rich source of atmospheric, groove-heavy slo-mo and midtempo tackle. Here they deliver four more sparkling cuts for the dancefloor. The Treatment's "Waves" builds a delightfully touchy-feeling synth-house jam around the groove from Surface's "Falling In Love", while Satin Jackets deliver a cosy, piano house-inspired nu-disco sparkler. Roberto Rodriguez opts for a more Balearic nu-disco feel on "Mustat Varjot", while Debonair turns a familiar disco staple into a rising disco/house banger - all twisted vocal samples, intricate percussion and heavy low-end bounce. Job done.
