Review: With its whispered female vocals, soft-focus electronic melodies and general E'd-up bagginess, Fiori's "Andiamo" sounds like a contemporary nu-disco take on classic Balearic house anthem "Sueno Latino". As that record still has the power to tingle and tantilize, this is no bad thing. Some low-slung, off-key Italo low-end also helps give the track a distinctly European flavour. As ever with Tigers on a Leash, the remix package is impressive. Populette deliver a baggy, house-flavoured interpretation, while Mirror People up the disco content with a jaunty, synth-laden rework. New York's own Pink Stallone offer up a techno-tempo analogue rave remix, while label boss Lou Teti ups the touchy-feely factor on his decidedly Balearic tweak.

Review: Old pals and regular collaborators JKriv and Lou Teti join forces for the first time in a while, this time on the latter's ever-reliable Tigers on a Leash imprint. The main attraction here is arguably Flori's delightfully baggy, near Balearic pop rework of "Ditar", which opens the EP. It takes the loose, laidback, instrumental disco-funk of the original (very Brooklyn, it has to be said) and turns it into something almost fragile - a woozy Balearic pop cut that should appeal to all those dreaming of summers dancing under the stars in far-flung places. "After The Disco" meanwhile, a jaunty, jumpy slice of simmering deep house, is also pretty impressive.

Review: You perhaps couldn't describe Brooklyn-based Lou Teti as a "rising star", but he's certainly upped his game of late. "Get Away", the debut release on his Tigers On A Leash label, fuses the touchy-feely sounds of soft-focus Euro nu-disco with a touch of New York sassiness - and a vocal that's straight out of the Screamadelica school of dreaminess. Remix-wise, there's a nice groove from Mario Basanov, a bizarre but attractive vocal tweak from Drop Out Orchestra (think classic soul/disco meets ragging Italo meets spiralling indie dance), a chunky dub from the same crew, and a percussive disco-not-nu-disco rub from JKriv.

Review: This new single from Tigers On A Leash main man Lou Teti is a bit of a surprise. Whereas previous releases have hovered between the worlds of house, disco and nu-disco, "I Know The Way" veers off towards the rockier end of the cosmic disco spectrum. Sounding like a cross between those odd heavy rock records Daniele Baldelli used to play and Daft Punk making nu-disco, it's a fun and forceful beast. Toomy Disco provides a big, glossy, borderline anthemic nu-disco makeover, while Cassian offers two light-hearted disco-funk takes. Check also Generatto Tape's Dub, which sounds like vintage Orbital jamming with a bongo-fixated percussionist.

Review: It can take some producers years to develop a "trademark" sound, but Brooklyn-based Lou Teti's done it in six months. Like his most recent outings for Mullet and Tigers On A Leash, "Shake" offers a breezy mix of nu-disco synths, DFA-ish baggy indie-dance vocals, low-slung punk-funk bass and a sprinkling of Balearic stardust. The influences are obvious, but the blend is all his own. Remix-wise, Drop Out Orchestra turn in a baggy, E'd-up version that sounds like a cover of Primal Scream's "Loaded", while Toby Tobias lays down some delicious deep house/nu-disco fusion for bleary-eyed dancers. A versatile package is rounded off by a bumpin', deep disco rub from J Kriv.

Review: Aspiring vocalist, Miss Bee, hasn't been shy lending her vocals to a host of dance-pop releases of late. Now however, she turns her hand back to her more rare solo outings. "Weak Knees" features a gentle, sun-bleached electro-house backing with a melody that's vaguely reminiscent of Mason's Exceeder. Complimenting the beats, Bee's jazzy voice comes on like that gal in Morcheeba, but it's the inclusion of a full-on shredding lead guitar that marks this tune as a bit out of the ordinary. Of the five remixes included here, its Eddie Mars' bouncy electro-house mix that's just pips the others at the post.

Review: Here we have a bunch of fresh new mixes of "Power" as found on this Russian outfit's 2011 album, Tropical. First up the TK Disco-isms of the original are slickly converted into silky, sulky electro-house by Mario Bassanov. Lou Teti turns up the brightness dial for a synthy indie-disco version, Zimmer goes for big piano chords and Lipelis & Simple Symmetry go all out on their electro-funk take. It's up to Moonoton to take things in a darker direction, delivering a sultry underground house take that's reminiscent of Kariya's classic, "Let Me Love You Tonight".
