Review: By the sounds of things, if you're of the nu-disco persuasion, Mexico is really kickin' off these days. Bufi is one of that city's leading lights as can be evidenced here. "Training Tofu" is like one of those club records from the 80s that's equal parts new wave, disco and house...proto house in other words. In Ron Hardy was around today he'd be slammin this! On the remix front we have glacial electro soul from Heko, killer, Bobby O-style, electro-disco from Andre VII and cool punk-funkisms from Avanti. Top-notch all round.

Review: Andre VII is one of the leading lights in Mexico's nu-disco scene, which has flourished over the last 18 months thanks to the efforts of the Electrique Music imprint. Here, he returns to said label with a relentless burst of acid disco. Like many of the label's releases, "Discoteca Clandestina" sits somewhere between revivalist house (check those pianos and acid squiggles) and rubbery, low-slung disco (clipped guitars, heavy electric bass) - with a dash of electro-disco thrown in (Moroder-ish appreggios). Bottin provides the headline remix, dusting down his vocoder for a spot of revivalist nu-Italo. Bufi's remix - leaning more heavily on disco-funk influences - is also worth a listen.

Review: Along with the likes of Daniel Maloso, Bufi and La Royale are leading a very healthy Mexican scene that's heavily indebted to 80s disco and proto-house. This isn't the first time these two have collaborated and you can hear why - they have a genuine chemistry that results in some excellent retro dance bangers. "Paris" sees lean, mean, neon bass notes lock over 4/4 nu-disco drums in an intense mechanical groove. Hazy vocals and heavy breathing jostle for position with high drama cosmic synthlines in what's basically a dubbed-out Italo winner.

Review: For the third volume in Electrique Music's Late Night Songs series, Bufli and La Royale join forces. "Michael" is an interesting cut, mixing elements from punk funk (the low-slung bassline), disco (the unfussy percussion), garage (cut-up vocal hits and New Jersey-ish organs), boogie (twiddly, Prelude-ish synths) and nu-disco (everything else) to create a beguiling midtempo groover. The addition of some sparse, reverb-laden vocals gives the whole thing a distinctly laidback late night vibe, though there's enough oomph to proceedings to suggest a positive dancefloor response. It's arguably the strongest track in the series to date, and well worth a listen.

Review: It seems that we're not the only ones to have noticed the recent rise of Mexican disco-not-disco, and more specifically the anything-goes fusion antics of the Electrique Musique label. ISM head honcho Yam Who has been paying close attention, and here compiles a showcase featuring tracks the label and related Mexican artists. There's much to admire, from the wide-eyed Balearic disco shuffle of Zombies in Miami and the head-nodding, toe-tapping house shuffle of Mr Jones, to the post-punk electrofunk of Avanti and dayglo Prince grooves of Thomass Jackson. Listing all the highlights is near impossible, so just dive in - you won't be disappointed.

Review: While the music on the long running Kitsune Maison series has always maintained the balance between the neon French-touch electro house and their slightly more electro-pop leaning acts, it's fair to say that Kitsune have always been known to many for their dancefloor output first and foremost. This "Club Night" mix allows label head Gildas the opportunity to showcase that side of the label to its fullest. Running through big tracks from The Magician, The Rapture (in the form of A-Track's partystarting remix of "How Deep Is Your Love", and Housse De Racket, it's a fine example not only of Gildas' talent as a DJ, but of where the label's at after ten years in the business.
