Review: After fiddling around with re-edits for the last few years, Dynamicron appears to finally be settling on an original production style of his own. While firmly disco-centric - see the delightfully over the top strings, pianos and horns of "Wasted Love" - it also includes nods to house and P-funk. There's something almost grungy and aggressive about the balls-out disco-rock-meets-P-funk of "Highlighted", while "Just Wanna Love Ya Babe" flips the script to offer some slo-mo, flute-laden AOR chugginess. A wildly varied EP that should enhance the Spanish producer's growing reputation.

Review: In the last 12 months, Mexico has emerged as an unlikely hotbed of nu-disco talent. The latest act to emerge from the apparently disco-minded Central American state is Future Feelings. Here, they offer up a two-track taster EP on Madrid-based Los Grandes, an imprint whose discography seemingly gets better with every release. Both "Skylife" and "Africa" are built around delightfully rubbery bass guitar grooves, with the former taking top billing thanks to some choice vocal samples and a loose electrofunk/disco fusion vibe. "Africa", though, is still pretty tasty, and should cause considerable dancefloor damage thanks to some fearlessly wigged-out synth squiggles.

Review: Los Grandes has enjoyed an impressive 2012, releasing a mix of lovingly crafted edits, seductive slo-mo disco originals and starlight disco/house fusion. Here, they round off the year with a selection of slinky reworks from previously unknown scalpel jockey Groovedown. The EP begins with "Nixon", a sweet, summery combination of cut glass strings, loose grooves and soft focus jazz guitar solos. "Walk To Mississippi" injects a touch of Cajun-spiced delta blues into proceedings, before "Baby (I Love Touching You)" slowly builds into a hustling disco-funk beast. Best of all, though, is closer "Midnight", a moonlit stroll through filter disco territory with only a large bag of MDMA powder for company.

Review: Mr Saucedo is a Mexican guy with a big thing for summery retro dance music. Here on his latest EP we get four tracks of warm and fuzzy re-edits of vintage club hits. Lifted from Kathi Baker's original, the title track "Feel The Love" reduces the speed and adds shimmering atmospherics for a Balearic sunset feel. "Music & Light" is, as you might imagine, a beefed-up re-work of the anthem by Brit-soul heroes Imagination. "Spring Affair" is a slo-mo take on Donna Summer's mid 70s classic, adding some Jan Hammer-style electronic toms for an 80s Miami rooftop party vibe. Finally on "Sexual Love", Saucedo plays with some saucy vintage movie dialogue and heavy use of disco filters to wrap things up in a light-hearted manner.

Review: Lazy Kiss is a new project from Brazil-based DJs Marco Kothe, Pedro Floriani and Caco Velloso. First Kiss, their debut release, features what we'd classify as edits-not-edits - tracks that began as re-edits but were later turned into something else. It's a neat method of working, and one that has delivered solid results. Musically, there's much to admire, from the lazy Latin AOR disco of "Mala's Son" and the jazz-funk hustle of "George's Barrio", to the Nu Shooz re-imagining "I Can't Wait Forever" and camp Italo pulse of "Amadeo". Best of all, though, is "Balla", a mad-for-it trip into skewed disco territory that should prove a surefire hit on dancefloors.

Review: Dynamicron (aka Roberto Marrero)'s Madrid-based nu-disco/edit label Los Grandes present here this new pairing of Greek DJ Nicko Marineli and producer pal, Disco B. There's four floor-melting tunes here: "Heartless" is an early 80s slap-bass slap-up, "Bar K" is freaky filtered funk, "French Bomb" is a laser-filled cocktail-spiller and "Serena Must Dance" is an authoritative electro-boogie stomper!

Review: Dynamicron's Los Grandes label returns with another bumper, album-length trawl through the world of contemporary "edits-not-edits" - groovy, hypnotic dancefloor fusions that touch on disco, soul, Balearica, deep house and AOR. Across the 11 tracks, there's plenty to excite, from the dubby slo-mo shuffle of Brandon P ("Mo Lovin") and organic groovery of Heion ("Keep On Hiding"), to the classics-reinvented style of DJ Butcher (the "Wordyrappinghood" biting of "You Don't Stop") and Irregular Disco Workers' booming Balearic dub disco. Best of all, though, is "Bakerman", a cracking Laid Back rework from the talented Get Down Edits.

Review: Dynamicron's Latino-centric nu-disco label Los Grandes, deliver their fourth long-playing comp, gathering the best re-edits they can find. The label boss himself delivers the first of 20 tracks, "She", which sounds like a very subtle edit of an undetermined, but luscious and silky sheeted, Bee Gees track. Elsewhere Brendon P's "Before You Go Away" evokes The Avalanches, Panorama's "Straight From The Heart" is pure cut mid 80s digital soul and on the same tip, Dennis Edwards is edited further by Teniente Castillo on "Don't Dub Any Further". William Devaughn's "Be Thankful" is beautifully teased out by Kompleks before things end with "Shameless Hotel", a crazy take on The Eagles by the Irregular Disco Workers.

Review: Nope, this ain't the return of mulleted 80s duo Black Lace, it's the latest comp from Dynamicron's Latino-centric nu-disco label Los Grandes. Once again they've searched high and low to gather the hottest re-edits. Highlights this time include Brevil's sultry sweaty "Sexy", Vinyladdicted's shocking percussion-led rework of 'cough', Jimmy Nail's "Ain't No Doubt", PCJ's baddass 70s disco rock freakout "I Like The Sound", DJ Butcher's faithful take on Mister Flaggio's Italo disco masterpiece "Take A Chance", and Craxi Disco's seductive and proggy synth-disco epic "Jerusalem".
