Review: Mango Sounds present Disco House goodies from cold Russia. Following up some great releases by Le Babar, Club Disco and Igor Gonya, they've decided to slap together this terrific various artists compilation so you can sample a more diverse array of their sticky sweet sounds. Mango Pudding Part 1 includes: Robert Ouimet & Dave Godin with the low slung and sensual groove of "Smash The Disco" (Rework), Albania's Vahe Akhperjanyan aka Arni Rock with "Disco Marten", Welsh DJ and promoter Toby O'Connor getting on some of that classic Salsoul style vibe (complete with killer brass section) on "The Heater Experience" and finally Argentina's Alexny is here channelling some old-school house sounds reminiscent of DJ Sneak with the cheeky drums of "Searching For".
Review: Founded in 2007 in the northern UK city of Hull, LW Recordings compilations are a series of albums varying in different genres from some of the biggest dance labels around - and their next installment of the Minimal Selections series is probably their most exciting yet! Volume 10 features such highlights as: Hidden Depths A1" (original mix) by UK tech house legend Clive Henry with Blind Minded, Argentinian Nico Kamienski with the emotive hi-tech soul of "Here" (original mix), Parisian Yassine (Distel Records) with the hypnotic afterhours minimalism of "Entrevue" (feat 01,Nonam) and Russian producer Darkphobia with the brooding menace that is "Toxic" which calls to mind the current vibe of top labels Senso Sounds or SCI + TEC.
