Review: Given the high quality musical skills of Faze Action's Simon and Robin Lee, you'd expect any side or solo projects to be blessed with the same expansive musicality. That's certainly the case on this second solo EP from one half of the brothers, which doffs a cap to classic New York disco. The title track's the real killer, with live bass, guitars, vocals, drums and keys combining on an authentically warm, loose and floor-friendly disco jam. The disco-funk-meets-Italo flex of "Kano's Line Jam" is almost as good, while "Solonoid" brilliantly pits rubbery disco bass and hissing percussion against Arthur Russell style cello and vintage synthesizers. A pair of throbbing, 21st century dancefloor reworks of the classic-sounding title track complete a great package.

He Is Coming - (4:53) 115 BPM
Review: Legendary UK disco imprint Faze Action Records returns with more sweat-drenched dancefloor goodness, this time from the live Andromeda Orchestra outfit. Alongside the requisite Special Disco Version of lead track "Sensitive" (which is ace) we're treated to a typically lush and percussive remix from man like Pete Herbert. Up next, "West Coast Lady" shimmers with a vintage moog bassline, while "He Is Coming" boasts shimmering synths, a slick bassline and a particularly epic vocal backing! This is proper disco music that has been played, not programmed, with live bass, guitar, piano, solina and disco breaks. Don't sleep!

Koochie Koo - (4:31) 109 BPM
Review: Faze Action's label is the perfect home for this unearthed disco gem by cult concern Andromeda Orchestra. Total groove authority Nick The Record has been tasked with the serious job of editing "Get Up & Dance", and he does a bang up job of eking out the original to create an elongated dancefloor workout. "High Steppin" ramps up the funk, as does the fourth track cut "Koochi Koo" with its wah wah guitar and expressive keys. This is a stellar EP for anyone craving a few fresh but classic weapons for the disco. And you know by disco we mean proper disco.

Don't Stop (Reprise) - (2:07) 81 BPM
Review: More from Faze Action member Robin Lee's offshoot Andromeda Orchestra project, whose throbbing and forthright releases have previously joined the dots between revivalist disco and the synthesizer-driven world of Italo-disco. In its original form (track three), "Don't Stop" is an authentically produced riff on the K.I.D track of the same name rich in swooping, razor-sharp strings, Clavinet-happy disco grooves and glassy-eyed female vocals. It comes accompanied by a stellar peak-time remix from Lee's old pal Ray Mang - all layered drum fills, swirling noises and jangling piano riffs - and a spacey, beat-free ambient "Reprise". Bonus cut "Kano Line Dance", a funky mid-tempo shuffler that joins the dots between boogie, jazz-funk and P-funk, is also rather tasty.

Review: Incredibly, brothers Robin & Simon Lee have been providing us with their slick updates of the classic disco and house sound since 1995! This bumper 25-track collection tells the story from the birth of FA Records in 2006. There's a lot to tell too; it's packed with enough vintage-sounding grooves to shame the Paradise Garage. Highlights include Jay Shepheard's breezy remix of FA's debut "Original Disco Motion", FA's own Rocker's Revenge-esque, "Hypnotic (disco mix)", the linear, chugging arpeggiation of "Touch It" by The Shack, the loopy robot-funk of "Lifestyle 101" by Rudy's Midnight Machine, the moody "revenge mix" of FA's "I Wanna Dancer" and the killer retro house-isms of Miss Cheesecake's "You Must Create", exclusively provided for us lucky folks!

Review: Though billed as a various artists compilation, this is essentially a career-spanning Faze Action 'best of' that also includes a handful of collaborations and contributions from their various side projects (Andromeda Orchestra, Rudy's Midnight Machine). And yes, it stretches all the way back to 'In The Trees'! Long-term fans will of course have much of the material featured here already, which makes the non-FA cuts even more welcome, but if you're just discovering the musical delights of the brothers Lee, then this collection is a great way to get better acquainted before delving into the full, extensive back catalogue...

Review: Nu-disco pioneers, Faze Action (brothers Simon and Robin Lee) have a long and respected history, not least due to the sterling work of their legendary label, FaR. Here they collate a heady selection of sizzling bangers from their impressive back catalogue. There's a whopping 19 gems to get your teeth into, highlights including the Les Rhymes Digitales meets Studio 54 vibes of "Don't Loose Control" by Del Strange, the perky italo-disco/house hybrid "Freak For Your Love (ST House Mix)" and the Afro-jackin' acid flashback that is "Mangwana feat Zeke Manyika (Paradise '89 dub)".
