Review: We don't know much about Black Magic Disco, other that he's based in London and makes funk-laden electroboogie tackle that sounds like classic Jam & Lewis productions given a contemporary nudisco makeover. It's this retro-futurist attention to detail - think bright '80s soul synth riffs, crisp guitars and booming synth-bass - that makes "Downtown" worthy of your attention. The same can also be said of the unashamedly touchy-feely "First Avenue", which is positively Balearic in its rush-inducing approach (it even features a sneaky sonic reference to Maze's "Twilight"). A trio of solid remixes complete a good package, with Satin Jackets' bubbling '80s synth-funker and Odahl's Daft Punk-do-boogie tweak standing out.

Review: Having previously impressed with 2012 debut "Downtown", London-based producer Black Magic Disco returns with a veritable sack full of remixes of "First Avenue", one of the highlights of that first EP. He opens proceedings with his own rework, a shuffling, organ-heavy rework that recalls the US garage-influenced sounds of the Local Talk label. Viper Strike and Patrick Baker deliver a sparkling, piano-heavy nu-disco/disco-house treatment (as summery as the obligatory post-work rush to a local beer garden), while the Final DJs drop a version that sounds like a contemporary dancefloor take on Please-era Pet Shop Boys (this is a good thing, in case you wondered). Meanwhile, Tom Eales goes all Tiger & Woods on his sparkling, thickset boogie-house re-make.

Review: While Toys Of Joy might sound like the name of a bumper box of "adult pleasure accessories", it's in fact Midnight Riot's chosen name for the label's occasional series of split artist EPs. This second volume does, though, contain rather a lot of crotch-moistening material. Stroud scalpel fiends Situation Sounds impress with a stretched-out version of a dreamy Balearic rock classic, while Black Magic Disco and Disco Funk Spinner both steal the show with essential disco-rock reworks ("Strike It Back" and "Blind Beat" respectively). For those whose erogenous zones respond better to synthesizers, Ursula 1000's sweet, rubbery and sensual boogie re-rub "Be The One" should get the juices flowing.
