Review: Occasional Rong Music types and Smash Hit Music Co mainstays 40 Thieves transfer to Claremont 56's dancefloor offshoot Leng for a touch of heady Balearic chugginess. "Backward Love" is arguably their best single for some time, coming on like a twisted Balearic disco trip through San Francisco's party underground with only copious amounts of LSD for company. It features backwards guitar solos, a killer groove and the sort of tight, dubwise disco bass that used to mark out Mudd releases. Flipside "Crystal Mountain Thunder Fuck" (really!) continues in the same vein, sounding not unlike an 80s alt rock B-Side. Well and truly baked - we love it.

Review: Recently snapped up by Claremont 56 offshoot Leng, Auf Togo are a new duo comprising Clement Cachot-Coulom (The Fabulous Penetrators) and Sasa Crnobrnja (In Flagranti). As you might expect deep, rolling leftfield disco is the order of the day, with the title track being a seven minute opus with incessant claps, lolloping bass and 60s West Coast-style guitar strums adding a sunkissed feel to proceedings. "Member Talk" is more lively, with an open high hat steering things along in a hippyish groove. Again, the laid back funk-rock guitar adds a whole new sonic layer, setting the tone nicely for some quality chilled out clubbing.

Review: The latest release from the Claremont 56 stable is further proof that Mudd & Co seemingly reside in a place where the sun always shines. On this Leng twelve inch, Ray Mang and Lexx have been enlisted to add some aural Vitamin D to the DNA of two tracks from Cantoma’s album Out Of Town. Mang’s version of "Under The Stars" is a world away from his visceral pumping work on the recent Glimmers album, opting to retain the feel and pace of the source, imbuing the bass with several degrees of added warmth and adding an ethereal quality to the vocal harmonies that flourish in the depths of the mix. On the flip Bear Funk affiliate Lexx tackles "Gambarra", stripping back the cosmic oscillations of the original to focus on the harmonious partnership between Marcelo Andrade’s vocals and the lilting guitar melodies over a percussive groove which throbs but never dominates.

Review: Claremont 56 offshoot Leng becomes the latest illustrious label to be graced by the considered production excellence of Portugal's finest, Tiago. And gosh darn it if the producer hasn't delivered his finest solo work to date in the sprawling gothic disco of "The Source". A guttural acid gurgle and steady percussive throb are the constants on a track that soars through a multiplicity of heavily delayed and truly spellbinding effects. It's the gloriously fuzzy organ refrain that takes over as the track approaches the run out groove that marks the ascension of "The Source" into must-have material. Adding a further gloss of greatness is the accompanying Slow Rave Mix from Claremont/Leng overseer Mudd which brilliantly swamps the acid undertones in a thick viscous bottom end, adding some weight to the bass and introducing a superbly wigged out electro synth line which gets increasingly jagged as the remix progresses.

Review: Time get out the 'shrooms out as Claremont 56's dancefloor offshoot Leng present this psychedelic DJ mix from Psychemagik. Yes these nu-disco freakazoids have been granted the right to take us on an hour-long journey that takes in their beloved afro-beat, disco, funk and psychedelia. High-lights of this trip include the flower power vibes of "Catching A Wave", the saucy Euro-funk of "Gozame Ya!" and the west coast Manilow-isms of ""House Of The Rock".
