Review: Madrid's Rotten City Records has previously released material by Tronik Youth, and much of their output has a similarly dark, woozy, stylized and druggy feel. Those adjectives can certainly be applied to this single from label regulars Gatos Negros. "Overdrive", all dark-wave vocals, disco-chug electronics, low-slung post-punk bass and mascara-clad attitude, sets the tone, before "Sriacha" wanders further towards early New Order territory, whilst also boasting a loose, almost Balearic feel. The accompanying remix package is really strong, too, with former Cage & Aviary man Jamie Paton delivering a pair of trippy, sparse and heavily electronic interpretations of "Overdrive", and In Flagranti turning "Chipotle" into a "dub disco-meets-punk funk-via-Chicago acid" smasher.

Review: Madrid's Rotten City is a label dedicated to all things slow and moody and to kick things off they have rounded up some of the most appropriate producers for this new label comp. Over the fours tracks we vibes are all about slow motion brooding body music. Kieran Holden ups the acid levels on "Barlick Acid", JackWasFaster's "Granada Liberacion" is dark, linear machine music, Gameboyz deliver some typically excellent electroclash and Cabaret Nocturne wraps things up with the soaring Depeche Mode style electro-pop of "Blind Trust".

Review: Since launching last year, Madrid's Rotten Files has delivered a trio of releases dedicated to the trippy end of mid-tempo house/nu-disco fusion. Here, they continue that approach, serving up a quartet of remixes of tracks from November 2015's excellent Rotten Citizens Volume 1 EP. Undo steps up first, turning Kieran Holden's intoxicating "Barlick Acid" into a vocoder-sporting chunk of low-slung, post-punk disco/nu-disco fusion. Next, JackWasFaster's "Granada Liberation" is re-invented as a 102 BPM psychedelic acid chugger by A Best Man Dead, before Avanti doffs a cap to EBM on an excellent re-make of Gameboyz' "Tacon Puntera". Finally, Jonathan Kasuma chucks everything but the kitchen sink at Cabaret Nocturne's "Blind Trust", resulting in a chiming, chugging treat.

Review: The crew behind Rotten City Files is remaining tight-lipped about the identity of Nozz, the producer behind their latest druggy disco salvo. Thanks to a bit of detective work, we can confirm that he's a "mysterious French producer", and that Lost Memories is his first full EP. "Lost Memories I" is a kosmiche-informed nu-disco shuffler, while "Lost Memories II" is a slightly bolder take on the same psychedelic disco template. The accompanying remix package is particularly strong, too. We're rather enjoying the outer-space madness of Marco Dionigi's re-imagining of " Lost Memories I", although Sebastien Tex's throbbing, Italo-disco informed version of "Lost Memories II" is arguably a little more dancefloor-friendly.

Review: Currently celebrating their second birthday, Madrid's Rotten City Files are marking the occasion by presenting this collection of back catalogue remixes. It's a tasty set it must be said, with seven tracks specially reworked for 2017. Highlights include Wolfstream's brooding electroclashy remix of Iron Blu's "Sweet Redemption", Days Of Being Wild's raw, Bobby O-style version of Curses' "Vengence" and the menacing arpeggiated techno-disco of Holographic Planes' reboot of "Masa Madre" by Dos Attack. Top-notch electro, good to hear this sound coming back strong.

Review: Ten months on from the release of the first Rotten Citizens collection, Rotten City Files delivers the follow-up. This time round, they've chosen to mix things up, accompanying their usual chugging, mid-tempo fare with a smattering of up-beat floor-fillers. In the former category, you'll find a pair of baggy, indie-tinged Balearic shufflers from DYOR and Sutja Gutierrez, and a mid-tempo acid chugger from Iron Blu and Rock Sterling. If you're looking for a little more energy, head for the eyeliner-clad, Nein-ish disco-chug of "Vengeance" by Curses, the throbbing weirdness of Dos Attack's "Masa Madre", or the blissful, floor-friendly positivity of Elvis LA.
