Review: Hailing from Romania, Razvan Ghenciu is keeping on the disco pressure, releasing yet another in a sizzling string of recent EPs. He very cleverly manages to straddle the divide between nu-disco and house: "This Time" is slow, synth heavy Balearica with lashings of melancholia and "Big Fever" is all about the boogie stabs, funky basslines and bongos. Remix-wise it's all about the totally 90s Ruben and Ras New York Kitty mix of the former.

Review: For his latest offering, Los Grandes label boss Dynamicron lets the Launching Satellites crew handle the release work while he handles the music side of things. Good job too as it's a very strong release indeed: "Hard To Find" is a deliciously slowly building electro-disco opener, the mean 'n' moody "Leave No Trace" follows with sinister panache, "Dust" is over seven minutes of laid back Balearic vibes and "Early Colours" is an experimental funk-out of the highest order.

Review: Nope, this ain't the return of mulleted 80s duo Black Lace, it's the latest comp from Dynamicron's Latino-centric nu-disco label Los Grandes. Once again they've searched high and low to gather the hottest re-edits. Highlights this time include Brevil's sultry sweaty "Sexy", Vinyladdicted's shocking percussion-led rework of 'cough', Jimmy Nail's "Ain't No Doubt", PCJ's baddass 70s disco rock freakout "I Like The Sound", DJ Butcher's faithful take on Mister Flaggio's Italo disco masterpiece "Take A Chance", and Craxi Disco's seductive and proggy synth-disco epic "Jerusalem".

Review: With his Midnight Riot compilations, Yam Who has proved to be a shrewd mover. By focusing largely on the edits-not-edits sound - where disco and electrofunk meets deep house - he's managed to catch the zeitgeist of a scene that remains hugely popular. This third volume reads like a veritable who's who of contemporary talent, featuring both well-known names (Ilya Santana, Rayko, Sleazy McQueen, Get Down Edits) and rising stars (Shit Hot Soundsystem, Jimmy The Twin, B-Jam, the excellent Stupid Human). Musically, it largely delivers what you'd expect, expertly moving between delay-laden disco dubbiness, Tiger & Woods-ish disco-house and starlight nu-boogie.

Review: Dynamicron's Latino-centric nu-disco label Los Grandes, deliver their fourth long-playing comp, gathering the best re-edits they can find. The label boss himself delivers the first of 20 tracks, "She", which sounds like a very subtle edit of an undetermined, but luscious and silky sheeted, Bee Gees track. Elsewhere Brendon P's "Before You Go Away" evokes The Avalanches, Panorama's "Straight From The Heart" is pure cut mid 80s digital soul and on the same tip, Dennis Edwards is edited further by Teniente Castillo on "Don't Dub Any Further". William Devaughn's "Be Thankful" is beautifully teased out by Kompleks before things end with "Shameless Hotel", a crazy take on The Eagles by the Irregular Disco Workers.

Review: After fiddling around with re-edits for the last few years, Dynamicron appears to finally be settling on an original production style of his own. While firmly disco-centric - see the delightfully over the top strings, pianos and horns of "Wasted Love" - it also includes nods to house and P-funk. There's something almost grungy and aggressive about the balls-out disco-rock-meets-P-funk of "Highlighted", while "Just Wanna Love Ya Babe" flips the script to offer some slo-mo, flute-laden AOR chugginess. A wildly varied EP that should enhance the Spanish producer's growing reputation.

Review: Dynamicron's Los Grandes label returns with another bumper, album-length trawl through the world of contemporary "edits-not-edits" - groovy, hypnotic dancefloor fusions that touch on disco, soul, Balearica, deep house and AOR. Across the 11 tracks, there's plenty to excite, from the dubby slo-mo shuffle of Brandon P ("Mo Lovin") and organic groovery of Heion ("Keep On Hiding"), to the classics-reinvented style of DJ Butcher (the "Wordyrappinghood" biting of "You Don't Stop") and Irregular Disco Workers' booming Balearic dub disco. Best of all, though, is "Bakerman", a cracking Laid Back rework from the talented Get Down Edits.

Review: Re-edit hero Rayko teams up with the little-known Dynamicron for this four-track scalpel trip into the murky world of 80s power-pop, Eurobeat and skewed Balearica. Rayko himself offers up two tracks - the soft focus Balearic pop indulgence of "Voyager" and the handbag-friendly chugging cut-up 80s pop sweetness of "Foreign Affair". Dynamicron, meanwhile, goes for a heavier sound on his two cuts, the booming bottom end throb of "JukeBox Hero" (80s powerpop goes disco-house, anyone?) and guitar solo-laden "WorkingClass Hero" (yep, an edit of a cover of Lennon's "Working Class Hero"). There's a distinct whiff of hairspray about the whole EP!
