Review: For this 11th edition of the Whiskey Disco series, Sleazy McQueen has gathered together a series of decidedly loved-up re-edits, many with a real AOR feel. That's certainly the case with "Moonlight" - a wonky bundle of 6am sunrise hugs edited into shape by Yves Saint Lau'rant - and Anthony Mansfield's delightfully subdued "Cosmic Annie". There's some straight-up party flavours in the shape of Disco Tech's bumpin' rework of perennial Dolly Parton fave "Jolene", while Cole Medina successfully dubs out a deep house love song on "Your Love".

Review: Four excellent new funk/soul/disco bombs from the Whiskey Disco label, with some surprising covers and peerless edits for your aural delectation. Anthony Mansfield sets about deconstructing a fresh cover of "Hercules" by Aaron Neville, while fans of Philly/Al Green-esque slow '70s funk will love Cosmic Boogie's soft-touch edit of "How Can You Say Goodbye". Rayko ups the tempo a little with his mix of the boogie wonder "S&M (Sexy Music), while WD label-head Sleazy McQueen has a lot of fun with Stevie Wonder's "Do I Do", looping up instrumental sections just right for a new perspective on this classic Stevie joint.

Review: Whiskey Disco returns with a quartet of blisteringly good reworks from Dead Rose Music Company and Satin Jackets. Dead Rose Music Company open proceedings in style with "Nothin To Ya", a brilliantly low-slung, bass-heavy re-edit-turned-remix of the Jones Girls' "You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else" that turns the delightful original into a dubbed-out chunk of dancefloor chugginess. The more upbeat "Too Late", based on a lesser-known favourite, is almost as good. Satin Jackets' "The Hustle" provides some looser - but still formidably heavy - dewy-eyed disco-soul thrills, while "I Can See The Light" is more Balearic than a wet, sloppy kiss from a grinning stranger.

Review: This release reads like a re-edit producer's convention, with four different artists all delivering their own unique takes on selections from disco's past. "Hitney Wouston" is Deep & Disco's funky tech-house take on "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" by you know who. It's an enthralling version that competes with Girls On Top's all-time reworking from back in the day. Alkalino's "Ruff N' Stuff" is a killer blend of throbbing bass, cowbells and a retro rap. Debonair's "Mellow Mellow" features a mesmerising, heavily filtered string loop and lots of disco lasers. Retro-house don Jonewaynes wraps things up with the looped slice of shimmering Balearica that is "Number 1".

Review: This Russian disco producer has been steadily building a name for himself of lateIt's all about mellow, good vibes over the course of six tunes, highlights of which include the slo-mo, disco house of the title track, which conjures up poolside soirees at sunset. The slick and shuffly "I Know Where You Are" covers the perkier side of things (try spotting a sample of Gravel Pit), as does the even housier "Back To School". If you're still hungry for even more stylish disco-house, then quality remixes by the likes of Volta Cab and Russian Adults are also included.

Review: Ponytail-sporting Floridian Sleazy McQueen is usually a reliable source of botton-heavy edits and reworks. Here he casually unfurls another digital-only selection of floor-burning tweaks for similarly minded disco deviants. As usual, there's a heavy dub disco feel to proceedings, with previously straihght-laced disco, AOR and electrofunk cuts being turned into heavyweight reverb-laden jams. As ever, there's little filler and plenty of killers, from the delay-laden horns of "I Like Girls" and poodle perm silliness of "Like The Wind" to the twisted swamp funk of "Through The Jungle" and E'd-up soul of "Can't Say Goodbye".

Review: Orlando-based disco lothario Sleazy McQueen hands his most recent single over to a bunch of pals for remixing, with largely pleasing results. Fellow American Cole Medina turns in the most impressive version, turning the original into a bubbling chunk of spaced-out electrofunk with just enough weight to please the househeads. Liverpudlian Facebook miserablist Cosmic Boogie treads a similar path, combining analogue bass, dubby house and disco cowbells to excellent effect. There's a solid Ooft remix, too, for those who like their deep house a touch darker and chunkier.

Review: Beards. Where'd they come from, eh? One minute it was all asymmetrical haircuts and 80s electro-pop, then the beards & disco brigade arrived. Well successful re-edit imprint Whiskey Disco proves that beards are still big and happening. YSE has a shady house music history but here displays his love of disco with four quality reworks. "Freeze Frame" is a vocoder-led slow building chant-a-long, "I Own The Boogie" is a deep and intense disco funker with killer basslines (both electronic and live), "Warm Wind Brewing" is a Fantasy Island/Love Boat romantic journey and "Here I Come Again" ends things with some raw disco seduction.
