You'd expect a track called "Lovely Stars in Open Skies" to be decidedly picturesque. Unsurprisingly, Maher Daniel and John Charnis' original is just that - an intoxicating blend of stargazing melodies, bongo-laced deep house grooves, pads you can get lost in and evocative vocal samples. The label claims it's been "melting ladies' hearts", and it's not hard to see why. Endless label boss Luca Bachetti provides the remix, which is attracting plenty of attention thanks to vocal support from Dixon and Ame. It's a superb rework of the original version, full of shuffling, intricate rhythms, emotive melodies, sensitive builds and expertly timed drops. You'll be hearing it a lot over coming months.

Spanish nu-disco DJ Nelue has developed quite a reputation for himself both with his residency at his Moroder Sound Club and with his label, Groove Democracy. Now he's upped his game again by delivering a seriously impressive 24-track label compilation featuring his own work and a selection of offerings from a host of key names on the re-edit scene. Highlights include Nelue's gentle retweak of Terri Well's 1984 anthem "All My Love", the chuggy arpeggiation of "Canebiere Man" and The Metaphysical's Bloop Crack glorious extension of Wham!'s kitchen synth drama, "Everything She Wants".
