Review: Constant Sound offshoot Cardiology's latest boundary-blurring re-edit release comes courtesy of Alexny, an Argentinian rising star who has previously released a wealth of music on all manner of digital-only imprints. He hits the ground running with 'Everybody Get Up', sneakily adding new beats, bass and musical touches to a string-drenched old disco jam, before applying the same house-style approach to a hybrid disco/electrofunk cut on 'Get On The Floor'. 'Give It To Me' is a chunkier and more bass-heavy disco-house bumper, while 'Do It You Got It' is a rolling, filter-sporting revision of a particularly spacey, turn-of-the-80s disco workout.
Review: This five-tracker from Argentina's Ivan Alexis Podwiazny, better known as Alexny, is sitting in our Funk section but truth be told would be just as at home on the Deep House or Disco pages, such is the stylistic variety on offer. We kick off in disco mode with 'We're Here To Party' and its 'Disco Inferno'-esque bassline, then head into struttier funk/soul territory for 'Keep On Burning'. 'Start With Drum' is fast n' furious, slap-happy 70s funk reworked for house floors, 'The Big Bang' is a Saturday night disco/disco-house stomper par excellence, before 'The Symptoms' plays us out on a big, anthemic note.
Review: In just a few short years, Argentinian producer Alexny has racked up releases on some of the most respected disco and house labels in the game, from King Street to Moiss Music, Furious Mandrill and Spa In Disco. Now you can add UK stable Slightly Transformed to that ever-growing list, as he steps up with a supremely checkable five-tracker that ranges from the discofied deep house of 'If You Missed The Groove', via the authentically 70s-sounding mirrorball vibes of 'When You Need Me', to the rawer funk strut of 'The Funkeenator', 'The Monkey Do' and 'The Trumpeter'.
Review: The clue's in the title here, as Argentinian producer Alexny (Ivan Alexis Podwiazny) returns to his semi-regular home of Furious Mandrill with a four-tracker that draws on Middle Eastern and Indian music for inspiration. While there are those who'll find the very idea problematic, there's much to enjoy here, with the first three cuts looking to traditional music while 'Jawani' seemingly draws on the sitar funk of the 60s and 70s. The timing's pretty neat, too: the sub-continent has really been starting to emerge on the international house and disco scene in recent years, so consider that zeitgeist nailed!
Review: In an ocean of edits, Cardiology releases always stand out for the combination of refreshing source material and producers that can balance new approaches with a respectful touch. So it goes on release number seven from Alexny, which kicks things off in fine style with the shimmying shake of "Keep Your Body Movin'". "Ele Atirou A Flecha" is the kind of vibe you want to keep in your back pocket for the jubilant last track of the night, while "Paradise" is a sweet slice of island boogie to transport you and all listeners to your chosen idyll in an instant. "Weekend Feeling" brings a little ruff n' tuff house stomp to classic disco funk, getting the groove down heavy on the one and making party magic in the process.
