Review: After impressing with a series of decent contributions to re-edit EPs from Chopshop and Man made music, Japan's Beaten Space Probe (AKA producer Shota Tanaka) strikes out on his own. The mood throughout Beaten Space Probe 01 is celebratory, as Tanaka subtly extends, tweaks and improves a string of groove-heavy disco jams. The four-track menu includes a particularly tasty extension of Loletta Holloway's "Love Sensation" and the deliciously optimistic "Nine Lives", a sugary sweet but surprisingly meaty edit that builds to a blistering climax. Best of all, though, is opener "Boogie Prancin", which is as addictive as it is cheery. That's very, by the way.

Review: It's been a while since we've had contact with Beaten Space Probe, but presumably his probe is still operational because here we have a follow up to last year's debut. Once again this Japanese producer (aka Shota Tanaka) is in party mood with four authentically 70s sounding slices of disco. "Boogie Rice" marries Philly strings with a killer funk riff and "In Your Soul" is a tour de force of female belters; "Feel Like Dancing" is the standout with a Nightfever funk that'll make you strut like Travolta, although "River Magic" come a close second with its emotional orchestration and tight guitar licks.

Ian Blevins - "Feed le Flame" - (8:21) 116 BPM
Review: Having previously appeared on Chop Shop Digital and others, British scalpel specialist Touchsoul has decided to launch his own imprint. First up on the label is a split EP featuring a quartet of deliciously summery disco and jazz-funk reworks from Touchsoul and pals. Touchsoul's own contribution is "Floyd's Solution", a deliciously bumpin', low-slung rework of a track previously cut-up by Dr Dunks on his recent Disco Deviance 12". Beaten Space Probe's hustlin' "Slow Down" is probably the highlight, though Manmade Music's lazy jazz-funk groover "I'm In Dub With Nancy" runs it close - as does Ian Blevins' darkroom disco-houser "Feed Le Flame".

Review: Ever wondered what, when the western world was amok with disco in all its forms, was going down over in Japan? Well, Yam Who? and his Midnight Riot cohorts are here to educate you. There are 15 newly revived 'Japanese disco and boogie gems' here, all slightly beefed up and tweaked for the dancefloor's benefit. Highlights include the raw guitar licks and slap bass of "You're So Fine" by Chewy Rubs, the tight electro-boogie of "Robot Cafe" by Jessie Funk and the saucy space-grind of "Big In Japan" by Judge Funk.

Review: There's been plenty of online chatter about this collection of slo-mo groovers, pitched-down disco edits and soft-focus midtempo deep house from Yam Who's ISM label. It's not hard to see why. It pretty much features all of the artists making their name on the slo-mo scene - Matthew Kyle, Rayko, 78 Edits, Sleazy McQueen, Heion etc - alongside familiar names pitching it down a notch or two (Yam Who, Trujillo, Ajello etc). There are some great slow house contributions, from the touchy-feely goodness of Martin Ruez' "Golden Sugar" and the low-slung stoner funk of Mr Chicago's "Bad Dub", to the snugly 80s soul/AOR flex of Magnetic Soul's "Head Over".

Review: Teniente Castillo's Madrid-based disco/nu-disco imprint Play Pal Music got off to the perfect start last year, delivering a sweet compilation of re-edits, reworks and original tracks that found its way into the playlists of many top selectors. This follow-up repeats the formula, delivering a wide range of goodness, from the string-drenched nu-Balearic goodness of Trip Guitar's "El Vuelto", to the baggy, horn-heavy, filter-sporting disco-funk revivalism of Disco Tech's "Let Me". Highlights are plentiful, from the superb re-edits of Get Down Edits (whose touchy-feely "Holdin' Me Back" is excellent) and Beaten Space Probe (check "Gotta Play Funk", with its woozy synth doodles), to the heavy electrofunk of Juan Laya and Thomass Jackson.

Review: Every now and then we get a faint signal from this Beaten Space Probe, lost in the depths of the nebulous disco cosmos. It usually crackles through on our radio about once a year and is unanimously greeted with whoops of delight and much dancing on our analogue space consoles. This missive contains nine galaxian edits, presumably all peak time bangers on the hottest alien dancefloors. Highlights include the elasticated bass frenzy of "Double Lines", the Kool & The Gang redux "Don't Wanna Dance" and Fingerman's electro-boogie blaster, "Like 2 Baby". Far out!
