Over the last 12 months, Guildford-based scalpel fiend Evil Smarty has delivered tight, floor-friendly material from Midnight Riot and Wall of Fame, usually in cahoots with Bad Barbie. Here, he goes solo, delivering more gently quantized, house-friendly reworks of lesser-known disco gems. Opener "This Is" is a low-slung disco shuffler turned into a toughened-up house roller, while "Nothing But The Truth" does an excellent job in breathing new life into a celebratory disco-funk party jam, adding thunderous kick-drums whilst retaining the original's attractive haziness. Best of all, though, is "The Get Down", a killer, 98 BPM funk revision that makes great use of the source material's urgent, impassioned vocal, bluesy guitars and wild synthesizers.
