Stop Dancing (radio edit) - (3:19) 120 BPM
Stop Dancing (Andy Buchan remix) - (6:42) 124 BPM Hot
Shake Your Body (original mix) - (7:40) 123 BPM
Played by: Andy Buchan, Ruud
Review: Two big names of the contemporary disco scene join forces, with predictably fine results. There'll be no forgetting 'Stop Dancing' once you've heard it, thanks to its highly distinctive spoken female vocal ("If the music stops playing/I won't stop dancing/If my friends all go home/I'll stay and dance"). On the Original Mix and Radio Edit, said vocal sits atop a Madhouse-esque chopped n' rollin' guitar groove, augmented by trumpets and strings, while Andy Buchan ups the dancefloor ante with big, bold slap bass and tuffer kicks. The more authentically 70s-sounding groover 'Shake Your Body' completes a strong package.

Get Naked EP
Get Naked - (6:44) 121 BPM Hot
Fight The Feeling - (6:14) 116 BPM
Oh Yeah - (5:12) 106 BPM
Get Naked (Chewy Rubs Strip Down dub) - (6:32) 120 BPM
Review: Following a string of inspired EPs on Hot Gorilla and Ware Wiri Recordings, Leeds lad Andy Buchan returns to Fingerman's long-serving Hot Digits label, an imprint he frequently graced earlier in his career. As you'd expect, there's plenty of tried-and-tested dancefloor heat showcased across the EP, starting with title track 'Gat Naked' - a slab of weighty, bass-heavy disco-house peppered with attractive samples (boogie synth stabs, gospel-house organ chords, jazz guitar solos, stylish spoken word snippets etc). Chewy Rubs remixes, giving it a more dub disco feel by focusing on the critical elements (cowbell, bass, drums and funky guitar licks). Elsewhere, 'Fight The Feeling' is a funky bass-propelled dub disco treat and 'Oh Yeah' is a jazzy electrofunk workout with tipsy trumpet motifs and a seriously squelchy synth bassline.

Get Lucky - (6:15) 116 BPM Hot
Burning Down The House - (5:40) 103 BPM
Review: Leeds' own disco don Andy Buchan returns to Hot Gorilla with an EP consisting of what are, essentially, three nu disco-fied cover versions - specifically, his takes on 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' by Simple Minds, 'Get Lucky' by Daft Punk and 'Burning Down The House' by Talking Heads. But there's a twist - as the EP title suggests, each of those covers has been augmented by the employment of a full choir on vocal duties. It's an approach that may prove a bit 'Marmite' (for this writer, the treatment works best on 'Get Lucky') but it certainly makes a change from endless re-edits...

Review: Clocking it at just under 2.5 hours long, you certainly can't fault this Rare Wiri year-end label comp on the value for money front! With 23 tracks on offer there's no room here to go into them all individually, and you probably have a pretty good idea of the label's particular electronic, 80s-leaning flavour of nu-disco anyway. Suffice to say, then, that Rare Wiri's many existing fans will be more than satisfied while newbies - if there are any left! - should start with AINZ's chunky, sleazy 'Hangover', the Italo strut of From Beyond's 'Non Analogue', MR Gee's throbbing 'Gravity', Rune Lindbaek's sci-fi refix of Ilya Santana's 'Cosmos Rising' or, a personal fave, Kelton Prime's 'Disco Arpeggio', wherein nu-disco meets garage vox...

Review: Hot Gorilla Records, self-styled purveyors of "disco for funky monkeys", has enjoyed a very successful 2023 - as this timely round-up of the imprint's finest moments of the year emphatically proves. Check first the summery, party-starting disco-goes-house joy of Dexter Jones' 'Space Sister', before admiring the horn-heavy, edit-not-edit excellence of Andy Buchan's 'Shake What You Got' and the Brenda Taylor-sampling boogie-meets-nu-disco fusion of 'Lovers Boogie' by Solazz. Highlights elsewhere across the compilation include the 21st century disco-funk of Harlem Dance Club's 'Shake a Hand', the eyes-closed peak-time rush of Fray Bentos' 'No Lies', and the rolling, effects-laden hedonism of 'Feels So Good' by Pete Whitely.

Review: Fran Deeper's Spa in Disco label is now 11 years old. To celebrate, the popular nu-disco imprint has unveiled this celebratory compilation. Andy Buchan gets things going in fine style via the mid-tempo nu-disco-meets-classic-house flex of 'House Party (Disco Version)', before Chewy Rubs drops some Soundstream-esque loopy disco-house ('Feel Good Factor') and Frank Virgilo takes a similar tack on 'Never Too Late'. From then on, it's a joyous sprint to the finish, with hands-aloft outings courtesy of Funk Hunk and others being joined by killer cuts courtesy of Juan Laya & Jorge Montiel (the rubbery bass guitar-propelled 'Funk Supreme'), Hiva & Funky Junkie (the hard-wired disco-funk of 'Hola') and Shakavoy (the party-starting 'Get Funky').

Review: What would you expect to hear when you stepped on an "edgy future discotheque"? That's the concept behind one of Sprechen's most popular series of multi-artist EPs, which here reaches its fifth instalment. Rising star Andy Buchan delivers a study start via the grandiose piano house/nu-disco/electro fusion of 'Body Heat', before Flash Atkins lays down a gorgeous fusion of stretched-pit piano solos, lolloping house beats and classy synth-pop sonics on 'Mistpoffer' (a cut that Daco later re-imagines as a throbbing, Patrick Cowley inspired electro-disco throb-job). Elsewhere, Mangetout's 'Body Vibrations' is a lolloping disco-funk shuffler, Jimmy Turnbull's 'Still I Rise' is funky, tech-tinged deep house workout, Ed Mahon's 'Seismic Guitar' is a weirdo electro number par excellence, and Tom2Trax's 'Heatwave Horizon (Lunar Mix)' is a big room house treat.

Review: Arriving just in time for the summer season, Hot Digits delivers a compilation that is tailor made to soundtrack lazy, hazy days. Even Funkier's "Feel So Good Inside" is an irresistible, funk-fuelled disco groove, while Ben Jamin's "Handle" inhabits a similar space. Soaked in wailing guitar and soulful vocals, it's a wonderfully infectious track. Both Andy Buchan and P-Sol raise the tempo with string-filled disco workouts, while Fray Bentos' "Danced To Death" offers a more electronic take on this sound. The compilation does veer towards house on occasion - most impressively with the subtle drum builds and chord progressions on Down Under Disco's "On My Mind". In the main though, Year Nine impresses most when it draws on disco and funk influences, such as the raucous party jam that is label owner Fingerman's collaboration with Chewy Rubs, "Block Party Bad Boy".

Prince Says Dance (2023 version) - (7:08) 120 BPM
Review: Two tracks in three mixes make up this latest offering from UK disco stalwart Andy Buchan. 'Prince Says Dance' is a slab of oddly restrained electronic funk that's got plenty of bottom-end squelch and an indecipherable, treated male vocal in its original (well, 2023 Version) form, before Chewy Rubs maxes it out with FX, stabs, reverb and Latin percussion trills. But it's the title track that takes the gold, a driving 4/4 houser with Jersey-style organs to die for and a vocal sample from Junior Vasquez's 'Get Your Hands Off My Man' (and Opal Funk Band's 'Ain't No Way' before that).

Review: For their 100th release, Hot Digits bring us a truly outstanding collection that gathers together the best of the label's last 50 outings. Just one look at the talent roster involved should be enough to get any contemporary disco lover's tastebuds tingling, replete as it is with names like Fingerman, Dexter Jones, Fray Bentos, C Da Afro, Dave Mathmos and Jet Boot Jack, and suffice to say the music they provide doesn't disappoint one iota! With 30 full-length cuts plus two hour-long DJ mixes there's no room here to go into every track, but whether you like it deep n' chuggy, funky n' furious or boogie-tastic n' soul-tinged, you'll find plenty of fresh ammo for your disco machine gun here.

Review: Nearly 30 years in the game and the Paper crew don't show any signs of slowing down in their old age just yet, as they bring us this 22-track collection that, just in case the title wasn't clear, showcases the best of their disco/nu-disco output from the past 10 years or so. Featuring cuts from the heavy-hitting likes of Yam Who?, Bill Brewster, Late Night Tuff Guy, Fingerman, Richard Norris, Andy Buchan, Flash Atkins, Girls Of The Internet and James Rod, you shouldn't need us to tell you how good this compilation is. But just to be clear, it's really very, very good indeed...

Hands Off
Prince Says Dance - (7:11) 119 BPM Hot
Hands Off - (5:39) 113 BPM
Review: Leeds lad Andy Buchan returns with a two-track EP designed with the specific intention of making booties shake on dancefloors. 'Prince Says Dance' is an interesting concoction that marries a live-sounding, 70s-style funk bassline to synths and sequenced vocal "aaahs" that positively reek of the 1980s, as well as spoken "house... electric" snips. The title track, meanwhile, makes great use of the vocal from Junior Vasquez's mid-90s classic 'Get Your Hands Off My Man', which it pairs with a simple rolling backbeat and some seriously wonked-out synth action. The latter stands out to these ears but then again I might be biased, having rinsed the original back in the day...

Review: UK label Hot Gorilla reach the terrible twos and celebrate with a 10-track compilation that's packed with fine contemporary disco, funk, soul and boogie vibes. If you're looking for highlights, then Havana Hustlers' opener rocks a b-line that somehow manages to recall both 'Lovely Day' and 'Boogie Nights', Fray Bentos makes great use of a classic Afrika Bambaataa sample on 'Stormy Nights', while Andy Buchan's 'The House That Funk Built' plunders Aretha to equally powerful effect and Solazz's 'Blaze The Party' is a boogie-tastic delight. But there are six more quality jams where those came from, from Even Funkier's Patrice Rushen-biting 'Those Were The Times' to the jazz-funk inflections of Shalvoy's 'Beautiful2Strangers'.

Review: Happy eighth birthday to Hot Digits, who are celebrating their anniversary with this superb collection of contemporary disco, funk and boogie slammers. With a whopping 30 tracks to choose from there's obviously no room here to go into them all one-by-one, but with cuts ranging from the smooth jazz-funk of 'George's Groove' to the unabashed filter disco euphoria of 'Cuz I'm Naked', and from the fat-ass slap bass of 'We're Gettin' In' to cheeky Loleatta-referencing disco-houser 'Dub Sensation', there's evidence a-plenty here, should any be required, that Hot Digits do this kind of tackle better than most.

Dance With Me - (6:46) 110 BPM
Basement Funk - (6:33) 117 BPM Hot
Nite Walking - (6:38) 108 BPM
Review: Three very serviceable disco jams here from Andy Buchan, a UK producer who, to be fair, can usually be relied upon to come up with the goods. Whether these tracks are best described as re-edits or simply sample-based productions is debatable, but 'Dance With Me' lifts chunks from Peter Brown and Betty Wright's 1977 TK Disco cut of the same name, while 'Basement Funk' revisits the bassline from Ver Jaxx's millennium anthem 'Red Alert'. As for 'Nite Walking', it's a string- and sax-drenched midtempo affair with a suitably hazy, Qaalude-infused kinda feel, and really rather sumptuous.

Review: Given the title you can probably guess what instrument takes centre stage on this latest EP from UK disco regular Andy Buchan, which is brought to you by the goodly folks at Citizens Of Vice. 'Piano Hands' itself is, unsurprisingly, a piano-led instrumental that sits right on the house/disco cusp and also sports some fine strings, while Glenn Davies' remix is a treat for house floors that like it deep and soulful. Elswhere there's plenty more ivories action to be found on the boogie-esque 'Ghosts Of Yanquin', before the piano-free 'Take Me Dancing' plays us out on a blissy, euphoric kinda tip.

Review: No less a personage than dance music historian extraordinaire Bill Brewster is the man wearing the 'selecter' hat for this five-track V/A offering from Stretford-based Sprechen. Andy Buchan's 'Reasons' is a reworking of Ian Dury classic 'Reasons To Be Cheerful', Yum Yum Club's 'An Acid Love Feel Track' bites Donna Summer and Yootis's 'Preach' takes liberties with the Peech Boys' 'Don't Make Me Wait'; that suggests the other two cuts may also be re-edits, though if that's true we couldn't tell you what of! All the same, these are five reliable workouts that'll get contemporary disco floors shimmying for sure.

Review: Paper Disco's 'Trash The Wax' series reaches its ninth installment, meaning you've probably got some inkling as to the kind of leftfield-leaning electronic disco grooves that make up most of the album already. That's not to say there's not plenty of variety on offer, though: Dan Wainwright's Beloved-esque 'Take It Easy', for instance, is quite a long way from the rolling, jazz-tinged deep house of J Kara's 'Talk To Me', and quite a long way again from the cosmic/Italo throb of James Rod & Aleito's 'Raum 909'. Jahn Solo's 'Dance For Me' is the one cut here that could be classed as 'trad-style' - otherwise, this is an album that will please those interested in exploring contemporary disco's outer fringes.

Generally speaking it's synth-tastic grooves inspired by Italo and cosmic disco that lead the charge here - though, given the talent roster, you'd expect a certain degree of stylistic variety, and you'll find such in Buchan's rawer, more funk-leaning 'Family Kings' and the soulful vibes of The Beatbroker's 'Belong 2 Me'.

Review: Leeds disco don Andy Buchan returns to his own Hot Gorilla label with a cut that in its Original form blends nu-disco and house influences, its walking disco b-line, handclaps and full-throated female vocal married to sprightly, plinky-plonk pianos. Remix duties are taken care of by a brace of equally respected contemporaries, with London's Bustin' Loose taking things slightly deeper and adding some nice squelchy synth action and string sweeps, while Ireland's Stephen Richards drops the tempo and tones down the housier elements on a rub that leans just a little bit closer to traditional disco and funk.

Review: Unlike many of its rivals, Fingerman's Hot Digits label doesn't fill its' obligatory annual compilation with back catalogue cuts. Instead, we're offered a vast number of previously unheard re-edits, remixes and original productions. It's a successful blueprint and one religiously adhered to on Hot Digits: Year Seven, the popular imprint's latest must-check collection. There's not enough room to single out every sonic highlight, but our current favourites include the breezy boogie squelch of Ross Fitz's 'I Miss Your Love ('85 Mix)', the driving deep house haziness of Fingerman and Henri Le Blanc's 'Leave Your Cares Tonight', the neo-trance cheeriness of Picklejam's 'Endorphin Situation' and the stab-happy, peak-time house retro-futurism of 'The Feeling' by Downunder Disco.

Evol Lady (original mix) - (6:46) 122 BPM
Review: Less than a month has passed since Andy Buchan's last outings - an expansive EP on Hot Digits and a single-tracker on Hot Gorilla - and he's already back in action. We're not complaining though, because Buchan has been one of the most consistent producers in the modern disco scene for some time now. 'Evol Lady' is bouncy, positive, cheery and life-affirming, with Buchan making great use of sparkling, house style piano riffs, squally sax solos, chunky house beats and undulating orchestral samples lifted from a familiar disco record. It's a genuine hands-in-the-air affair that's bound to get people going out on the dancefloor when music festivals return this summer.

Basement Beats (original mix) - (6:28) 119 BPM
Review: A single-tracker here from Leeds lad Andy Buchan, who's known for releases on Peppermint Jam, Audaz, Rare Wiri, Chopshop, Spa In Disco and Midnight Riot, among other well-respected labels, as well as his many re-edits. 'Basement Beats' is a rolling, party-hearty funk/soul cut with something of a late 60s feel, and centres around a looped female vocal snip saying "down, down, down" (or something very similar) atop scorching Hammonds and rinky-tink pianos, with a couple more vocal snips accompanying the breakdown around the four-minute mark. Simple stuff, perhaps, but it's groovy, baby... it's outta sight!

Review: Five very solid contemporary funk/disco jams make up this EP from Andy Buchan a native of Leeds. The vaguely Afro-tinged 'Awayo' itself marries fluttering funk guitars to synth strings, female wails and some hefty bottom-end squelch, while 'Disco Down' ain't nothin' but 6m40s of rolling groove. The lively, jazzy 'Swing That Thing' takes us into housier, more uptempo territory; then we drop back down into 'Dream Walking' (think the Bee Gees with added funk sleaze) before 'Disco Down' gets reworked for house floors, with a vocal chant added, on the Get Down Edits Remix.

Can't Hide (J Biss edit) - (6:38) 103 BPM Hot
Review: After previous releases on such acclaimed disco labels as Spa In Disco, Rare Wiri, Midnight Riot, Paper Disco and Audaz, Leeds native Andy Buchan (alongside partner-in-crime Conan The Selector) set up his own Hot Gorilla imprint earlier this year. This sixth EP from the label sees him providing two very authentically late 70s-sounding gems, with 'Your Love' a hazy, lazy affair that sports a sensual, breathy female vocal and some understated house-y pianos, while 'Can't Hide' is a more funk-oriented, Latin-tinged near-instrumental cut whose sampled female vocal is buried deep in the mix.

Review: More hot-to-trot heaviness from Andy Buchan, one of the nu-disco scene's genuine rising stars. In keeping with his other recent outings on Hot Gorilla, "Voodoo Disco" is a funky and forthright affair, with hard-wired, energy-packed Clavinet motifs, sampled female vocals, swelling strings and bubbly electronic lead lines leaping above an electro-tinged beat. Jet Boot Jack delivers a far funkier version rich in stomping drums, Chic style bass and guitars, and a sprinkling of soul horns, while Funk Edwards cheekily re-imagines the track as a throbbing slab of Italo-disco-meets-nu-disco. Both reworks are excellent, though it's Buchan's original mix that we think hits home hardest.

Don't Do That EP
Don't Do That (J Cas edit) - (7:18) 119 BPM
Kosmick Funk (Rock Me Baby edit) - (6:55) 113 BPM Hot
Review: Andy Buchan's third EP in as many months on Hot Gorilla is another sweaty, celebratory treat, though we'd expect little less from one of nu-disco's genuine rising stars. This time round he's not serving up sizzling original productions, but rather two hot-to-trot re-edits that should appeal to all those who like their disco to sound weighty, funky and horn-heavy. He begins with "Don't Do That (J Cas Edit)", an energetic slab of party-heavy disco funk rich in wild sax lines, bumpin' house beats, ceaseless male group vocals and crunchy electric guitar licks, before dipping the tempo a little on the beatdown-goes-psychedelic funk haziness of "Kosmick Funk (Rock Me Baby Edit)". The latter is equally as heavy as its predecessor and arguably twice as hedonistic, despite its lolloping mid-tempo beats.

Kingfisher Funk (Chewy Rubs reshuffle) - (7:37) 120 BPM
Review: In the past we've referred to Andy Buchan as one of nu-disco's rising stars. These days, he's well established, offering up tunes that regularly incorporate a wide range of influences whilst retaining the celebratory excitement associated with the contemporary disco scene. "Kingfisher Funk" sits somewhere between a re-edit and an original production, with Buchan reaching for humid, delay-laden horn samples, an Escort-esque revivalist disco groove, echoing female vocal snippets and just the right amount of trippy electronics. His fine original mix comes backed with two hot-to-trot reworks: a sped-up, filter-sporting disco house bumper from Reece Johnson, and a brighter, breezier dub disco style "reshuffle" from prolific producer Chewy Rubs.

Review: Man of the moment Andy Buchan is back in action, transferring from Citizens of Vice to up-start imprint Hot Gorilla in order to release one of his strongest cuts to date. In its original form, "Higher" is a deliciously bouncy, sun-soaked and thrillingly positive affair. It sees Buchan pepper a baggy and bouncy Balearic disco groove with arms-raised old school piano stabs, colourful synth doodles and a handful of short vocal samples. It's undoubtedly celebratory, as are the accompanying remixes. Pal Conan The Selector brilliantly re-imagines "Higher" as a sweaty fusion of rolling disco house and low-slung, sax-sporting funk, while Fingerman explores similar sonic territory before re-tooling the track as a piano-heavy rave roller in its latter stages.

Review: Having recently notched up a sixth year in business, Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint is in a celebratory mood - hence this all-action round-up of recent delights and unheard treats from the disco-loving label. Encompassing no less than 30 tunes, the collection giddily skips between warming beatdown disco (P-Sol's "Walter"), Mark E style slo-mo loop jams (Vigi's "I'll Be There") and glassy-eyed Balearic nu-disco (Picklejam's "Untitled Love"), before raising its hands skywards as the peak-time party-starters begin to appear thick and fast. Highights in this category include the vibrant jazz-house flex of Dexter Jones' "Swing Thing", the bustling boogie re-edit business of Monsieur Von Pratt's "Let's Dance" and the hearty disco-funk heaviness of Chewy Rubs' "Funky Bee Bop".

Review: For the label's sixteenth release, Citizens of Vice welcomes back rising star Andy Buchan, a producer who has previously plied his wares on Rare Wiri, Hot Digits and Masterworks Music. Opener "Kosmick" lives up to its name, with Buchan peppering a sturdy, arpeggio-driven grooves with waves of colourful synthesizers, sparkling aural textures and some suitably saucer-eyed melodies. "Come My Way" offers a chunkier, more groove-focused take on the same spacey nu-disco sound with the addition of tougher, house-style drums and wavy male vocal samples, while "2049" is powered forwards by stomping drums, sustained chords and a squelchy synth bassline. To round off the EP, "Come My Way" is turned into a dreamy slab of spaced-out synth-soul by the Paper Street Soul crew.

He begins with a driving slab of tooled-up funk fuzziness (the straightened-out righteousness of "Brand New Girl (Billy Garner Edit)", before flexing his disco muscles on the string-laden, percussion-heavy mid-tempo sweetness of "Bless My Soul (Bettye Swan Edit)". 'Disco Overtime (G'Night Edit)" is a filter-sporting take on a mid-80s dancefloor gem rich in soulful vocals, glistening guitars and colourful synths, while "Let's Dance (JB's Bo Horne Edit)" re-imagines a sing-along 1980s classic as a bump-along exercise in filter disco.
