D.S.D. - "What Can I Dooo" - (8:04) Biggest-selling track on this release
   
King Cosmic - "Midnight On Jupiter" - (5:07)
Played by: Rayko, Kongisto
Review: Spain's Rare Wiri bring us an EP packing four nu-disco gems from as many artists. Kelton Prima is up first with the boogie-flavoured 'Disco Arpeggio', which features an irritatingly familiar vocal cut-up (Eddy Grant? Colonel Abrams? who knows?) before Chewy Rub brings us the typically chunky and infectious 'Explore The Cosmos'. Then it's over to D.S.D with 'What Can I Dooo', a near-instrumental throbber that veers towards housier/proggier pastures, before the EP's completed by King Cosmic's 'Midnight On Jupiter', a dark n' bassy plodder with strong hints of Belgian new beat. Solid stuff all round, even if I can't help feeling I've maybe broken the first rule of Space Club here...

Chewy Rubs - "Get Loose" (original mix) - (5:31) 120 BPM
Review: With 36 tracks to choose from, there's no doubting the VFM on offer here... or so goes the old clich?! But if those 36 tracks are rubbish, that's no good, is it? Lucky, then, that THESE 36 cuts come from the Bandolier label, which is headed up by Chewy Rubs - for this reviewer's money, one of the finest and most under-rated UK producers working in the disco arena today. Featuring multiple contributions from Chewy himself as well as label regulars Stephen Richards and Ian Upfold, picking highlights is pretty much superfluous here because while not every track is a killer, obviously, a good 30 or so of 'em are! But 'Sombrero' has been a surefire floorfiller for yours truly since its 2019 single release, so maybe start there...

L"cocomotion - (6:00)
   
Shot Of Love - (7:16) Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Chewy Rubs teams up once more with on/off collaborator North Lane on this two-tracker for Spa In Disco, with predictably solid results. 'L"Cocomotion' itself is up first, opening with a simple lolloping, bass-led funk groove, with a breathy, chorus'd female "do it, do it good... dance L'Cocomotion now" chant that comes in halfway through by way of a vocal. The standout to these ears, though, is the accompanying 'Shot Of Love', a slightly more driving and uptempo affair in which a diva vocal and a hefty funk b-line meet up down the disco and make some beautiful music together...

Review: Chewy Rubs is a name that'll always prick up this reviewer's ears and here he serves up a spanking new four-tracker on his own Bandolier label. The EP kicks off with 'Disco Magic', a solid lil' chugger with a male "disco dancing" vocal refrain. That's followed by the struttier and slightly more energetic 'Keep Going', after which we come to 'Love Takeover', a denser, more atmospheric jam with a cut-up female "your love is taking me over" vocal, before 'The Vibe', another moodier cut with a distinctive squelchy electronic bassline and male "feel the vibe" vocal shouts, plays us out.

Party Up - (6:16) 120 BPM
Review: UK scene stalwart Chewy Rubs gets down with his bad self on an EP that can be safely filed under "tracky shit". With its acid bassline and cut-up rap vocal samples, 'Ruff Beats' is a simple affair but utterly irresistible, and will get bodies onto floors for sure. There are more rap snips on midtempo disco-house roller 'Hype Or Right', while the sample-happy 'Make It Funky' has a charmingly na?ve, late 80s/early 90s feel. 'Party Up' then plays us out on a slightly more straight-up disco tip. All four are eminently playable, but suffice to say the lead track has been well chosen.

Review: Anything with Chewy Rubs' name on it is sure to prick up this reviewer's ears, and the Naughty But Nice veteran certainly doesn't disappoint with this latest four-track EP, which finds him with his house hat on. The standout to these ears is 'Get Loose' with its rubberband bassline, party shouts and sense of just-repressed energy, followed closely by 'Sweet Little Booboo' with its chopped n' looped preacherman vox, while 'Active Ingredients' itself borrows from D-Train classic 'Music' and 'Team Work' is an eyes-down, blues-infused shuffler, built for the wee small hours and riding a b-line that kicks like the proverbial equine quadraped

Strictly Rockers - (6:57) 122 BPM
Review: A very solid four-tracker here from Mr C Rubs, opening with the chunky 'Afro Disco', which isn't particularly Afro-flavoured musically but does feature a snatch of sampled tribal speech by way of a vocal. 'Music To Move' then brings the peaktime disco-house stomper vibes, before 'Respect & Harmony' takes us into chunkier pastures. And then we come to what for this reviewer is the EP standout by far - 'Strictly Rockers', wherein a monster bass throb provides the musical backbone around which assorted FX, piano licks, shakers, vocal snips and more interwine for seven slinky, sinuous minutes.

Review: Seeing Chewy Rubs' name on a release is always guaranteed to prick up this reviewer's ears; for this four-tracker on his own Bandolier label, he ropes in the equally dependable North Laine, with predictably fine results. 'Down The Barrel' bravely revisits that most maligned of first-gen disco anthems, 'Devil's Gun' by CJ & Co (1977); that suggests the other three cuts may also be re-edits but if so they've dug nice and deep! Either way, 'Love Is All We Need' is a 70s-sounding near-instrumental, 'Knock One Out' has more of an early 80s feel and 'Click, Snap & Shoot' takes us into full-blown, shiny-suited boogie territory.

Review: Ever-prolific Hereford veteran Chewy Rubs steps up with another four-track EP on his own Bandolier label. 'Whoolly Mammoth' kicks us off in whompy, stompy, loopy fashion, before we get a slice of proper dancefloor struttery in the form of the fairly self-explanatory 'Tek Disco'. Next comes 'Hot To Trot', which with its clipped brass stabs comes a little closer to late 90s/early 00s-style filter disco, before the EP's completed by 'Easy Tiger', another looping bass workout in a very similar style to the opener, but now with the addition of six-string wails and keyboard licks redolent of early Chi-town house.

Review: A collaborative four-track EP here from two leading lights of the contemporary funk and disco scene, and the results don't disappoint. The EP opens with 'Beats For Chance', an unsurprisingly percussion-led affair with snatches of boogie-style male vox. Next comes the looping funk workout that is 'Hook Of Love' with its chanted "1 2 3, look at me, I'm hooked up on your love" vocal, which is followed by the suppressed energy of 'Time To Freak'. The EP's then completed by 'Throw It, Shake It', a cheeky little strutter with another boogie-esque vocal that potentially has the most floor appeal of the lot.

Review: Four predictably fine slices of contemporary funk 'n' boogie courtesy of Hereford's own disco don Chewy Rubs. While retro-flavoured vibes may dominate, Mr Rubs shows a healthy disregard for convention or stylistic 'historical accuracy' - so 'Muffin Bizniz' marries scorching 60s Hammond funk to a "raggamuffin bizness and ting" vocal, while the early 80s boogie/funk groove of 'Ecstasy' (think Cameo or Rick James) gets augmented by the "acid... ecstasy" vocal snip from Beltram classic 'Energy Flash'. Meanwhile, it it's sheer squelchy bass and soaring strings retro disco silliness you're after then head for 'Happy When You're Free'.

Review: Always a pleasure when a new release from Mr Rubs lands in the inbox! 'Dig It' kicks things off this time, a disco chugger that's dripping in restrained energy and comes topped with two male voices ("Can you dig it?"/"Yeah, I can dig it"). 'You've Got To Live' is a big, strutty funker designed to induce the throwing of shapes out on the dancefloor, while 'Music' is more the kind of sparse, stripped-down throbber that'll see you through the wee small hours nicely. Completing the EP is 'Destiny', a disco-house-boogie concoction with a looped female vocal and subtle hints of jazz around the edges.

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.

And there's DEFINITELY a kazoo... The EP's other three cuts are all perfectly serviceable nu-disco jams, by turns eyes-down ('Feel The Groove'), uplifting ('Boogie 1Nite') and lo-slung and funky ('Get A Lift'), but it's 'Pluckers Luck' that'll have 'em running up to the booth demanding track IDs.

Review: Chewy Rubs joins forces once more with fellow nu-disco fave North Laine on a 70s-style disco cut that's offered up for public consumption in a choice of two mixes. The lead Vox Edits tops a bed of rolling funk bass and disco geetar chops with a soulful male vocal, brass fanfares and, around the four-minute mark, some fine vibes work, while the matching Chewy Rubs Rolllin' Dub pretty much does what it says on the tin, looping up sections of the track to create a chuggin', Sneak-y workout that'll be perfect for keeping fired-up floors moving in-between the anthems.

Review: This reviewer always experiences something of a frisson when a new Chewy Rubs promo lands in the inbox, and this latest offering doesn't disappoint, packing two slabs of party-hearty, authentically 70s-sounding funk squelch ('Voodoo Disco' and 'Have A Bit Of Fun') and two tracks ('Golden Fire' and 'Welcome') that lean more towards disco-house and nu-disco. As with much of Chewy's output, it's hard to tell if these tracks are straight re-edits or just heavily sample-based productions, but no matter - if they're re-edits, the source material is sufficiently obscure that they'll sound "new" to most ears regardless!

Review: Two years have passed since the last Masterworks Music label compilation, so this fourth volume is long overdue. It's another expansive affair, with boss man Danny "80s Child" Worrall offering up no less than 20 exclusives from a mixture of label regulars and new recruits. As you'd expect, there's much to enjoy, with highlights including the rubbery and celebratory disco goodness of Surgery Edits' 'Get Up and Boogie', the hazy house pleasure of Dirtytwo's 'Desire', the string-laden peak-time rush of Chris Grubinza's 'Feel The Rush', the revivalist 80s boogie brilliance of Slync and Evie Adams' 'Fantasy', and the wonderfully loved-up 80s soul-meets-nu-disco warmth of Paper Street Soul's 'Fwok!'.

Review: With 23 tracks to choose from, there's no faulting the value for money offered by this summer compilation from London's Slightly Transformed label. Such an extensive tracklist also offers plenty of scope for stylistic variety, with tracks ranging from laidback, groovesome boogie/soul jams like opener 'What Are We Gonna Do' to the mellow Balearic haze of 'Summer In The City', via the strident 80s attitude of 'Edgy', the looping filter disco of 'Something About Love', the authentic-sounding Blaxploitation funk of 'Mac And Carly Go Uptown', the Zapp/Cameo-isms of 'Firebabe' and even a bossa nova cover of Bill Withers. Serve poolside, accompanied by several mojitos, for maximum impact!

Review: Some 17 months after their first collaborative edits EP first hit Juno Download's virtual shelves, buddies Chewy Rubs and North Laine return with a third (and possibly final) collection of joint reworks. They begin in confident mood via "Future Ready", a gently tooled-up, house style extended edit of the Winners' NYE-friendly disco gem "Get Ready For The Future", before turning a sweaty disco-funk workout into a beefy, peak-time-ready chunk of disco/deep house fusion ("Precious"). "Night Out" is a bouncy and cheery revision of a synth-laden 80s soul/electrofunk number, while "Who's Having All Your Love" is a killer flip of a glassy-eyed old school-house number that may well be the EP's standout moment.

Review: A four-track re-edits EP from Re-Loved here. Indonesia's Per QX is up first with 'Feed Me', a low-slung disco-funker topped with an impassioned diva vocal, before Get Down Edits bring us 'Suite Magic', a reworking of Le Pamplemousse's 1978 hit 'Sweet Magic' (possibly via Matrix's 'Get Out' from 1992, an early Kerri Chandler production which also sped up the sample to the tempo heard here). Chewy Rubs once more looks to Latin music for inspiration on 'Munky Fonkey', which rocks disco strings and a half-sung/half-shouted Mexican vocal, while the EP's completed by Maffa's 'Love's Generosity', a sumptuous, near-instrumental workout with an authentic late 70s feel.

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: UK-based Bad Barbie teams up with Chewy Rubs to deliver more of her disco re-edits here on the 'Locked In' EP, with forays into funk, house and reggae. She's known for her radio show on Kane FM, where her love of music and lively personality get a chance to shine, not to mention maintaining a rather curious Instagram account. Partner in crime Chewy Rubs is no stranger to the scene either, and heads up this very label: Bandolier Records. Get utterly hypnotised by the funked-up disco loops of "Breakout" which is sure to turn up the heat on the dancefloor, while the deeper and more low-slung groove attack of "Normalism" is reminiscent of the Chicken Lips/Bearfunk style - perfect boogie down vibes to play at sunset!

Review: When it comes to celebratory, life-affirming musical positivity, you can't beat Midnight Riot's ongoing "Disco Made Me Do It" compilation series, which gathers together a mixture of re-edits, reworks and original productions from the label's vast roster of artists. At 24 tracks deep it's a bit of an epic, though we can happily confirm that the quality threshold remains impressively high throughout. Our current favourites include the Redux Inc re-edit of Casa Blanco's P-funk flavoured hip-wiggler, "Funk & Dub With You", the rushing, piano-powered house bounce of "Got Me" by Ladies on Mars, label boss Yam Who's sparkling nu-boogie revision of Phil Jaimes' "My Sensitivity" and the deep, groovy '80s soul flex of Chevals' "Thank You For The Ride".

Review: Chewy Rubs productions are usually heavily sampled-based, but there's enough original work gone into them that to label them simply as re-edits would be unfair. 'You Can Get It', for instance, loops up a chunk of vocal from Instant Funk's 1978 Salsoul classic 'I Got My Mind Made Up', but pairs it with an insistent Italo-esque bass throb. The other three tracks are all instrumentals: 'Over The Boarder' nods to west coast jazz-funk, 'On The Move' recaptures some of the irresistible exuberance of Chewy's own 'Sombrero' from last year and 'Lush' has an 80s Euro feel... but in a good way.

Review: The nu-disco scene's favourite Wookee, Chewy Rubs, has dedicated much more time to collaborations of late. He's already joined forces with Fingerman and North Laine, and here shares the results of studio time spent with the previously unheard M.O.K.E. There's much to set the pulse racing throughout, from the rolling nu-disco warmth of EP opener "Echo The Love", where bubbly electronic motifs and surging synth lines ride an elastic groove, to the weirdo vocals and disco-tech vibes of the rather ear-pleasing "Silent Caller". Best of all though is title track "Beam", a fine chunk of 21st century Italo-disco/house fusion full of sparkling refrains, sleazy analogue bass and dreamy, sun-kissed melodies.

Review: If you've been living the life of a hermit for the last few years, you're unlikely to have come across Chewy Rubs, a prolific re-editor and maker of dancefloor dubs whose regular EPs for Re-Loved, Bandolier and Fall From Grace are must-check affairs. Predictably the producer's latest outing on Midnight Riot is packed with top-notch treats too. Our pick of the bunch is "Hammered", a sweaty romp through extra-percussive funk-rock pastures rich in wild organ stabs, grunting vocals, slap bass and flash-fried guitar licks. That said, the other three tracks are equally as impressive, particularly the string-laden disco dub "Dancin' At The Disco" and swirling Italo-disco-meets-disco-house opener "Bo Fo".

Review: The world's most famous Irish-Iranian DJ/producer serves up a fourth collection of disco and boogie re-edits on his own Re-Loved label. The album features 19 full-length tracks plus two hour-long mixed versions from Haji himself, and the artist roster reads like a Who's Who of the re-edit scene, featuring as it does names like Dr Packer, Chewy Rubs, Birdee and Chuggin' Edits. What's most pleasing, though, is the non-obvious nature of the tracklist: sure, Ian Ossia's opener 'Someone To Count' borrows from Dennis Edwards but that's about as far as we got with trying to identity source material before shrugging our shoulders and just sitting back to enjoy...

Review: In between promoting the latest Star Wars flick and fighting the evil Empire, hairy re-editor Chewy Rubs has somehow found time to join forces with old pal North Laine for a second collaborative EP on Bandolier. They begin by offering a punchy instrumental take on Deodato's horn-heavy jazz-funk era gem "Night Cruiser" (here re-named "Night Cruising") before successfully looping up a soaring, over-the-top disco classic ("Second Chance"). "Biological" is a fine, floor-friendly revision of a lesser-known swamp funk gem, while closing cut "Lovin'U" is a slightly tooled-up version of a glassy-eyed '80s soul sing-along. As the old saying goes, this EP is "all killer, no filler".

Review: Going by the volume of tracks on show, it would be fair to say that Masterworks Music's "Bag of Tricks" is not a little handbag, but more like a Mary Poppins style bottomless carpetbag. The label's latest rummage through its seemingly endless contents has been a successful one, with the 20 showcased cuts including a wealth of fine fusions of disco, house, boogie, electro and 80s soul. It's uniformly dancefloor-focused, with highlights including the Afro-house/disco-tech fusion of JB Dizzy, the driving, spaced-out disco-house grooves of Mike Woods, the loose-limbed, off-the-wall edits of Chewy Rubs, the sweet disco-soul bounce of RocknRolla Soundsystem, the delay-laden synth sing-along styles of Rayko and the hot-to-trot brilliance of Downunder Disco.

'Disco Hook' gets the ball rolling, a lively affair that sports some killer space disco stabs and a looped "disco music" vocal, and that recalls Joey Negro's work with The Trammps. 'Party Tool (Chewy Rubs G-Funk Disco Dub)' is another one that doesn't take much explaining, given that the relevant keywords are right there in the title; ditto 'Garage Disco IV', which rocks a super-infectious bassline not dissimilar to last year's 'Sombrero' and old-school "jack!" vocal samples, while finally 'Hypnotizin', as you've probably already guessed, borrows from Raw Silk.

Review: The nu-disco scene's premier scalpel-wielding wookee returns with a sixth selection of roaring reworks for Seamus Haaji's disco-house inspired Re-Loved label. The experienced editor hits the ground running in some style on "Let It Go", a bold, slightly loopy and undeniably low-slung affair that cleverly combines lifts from a familiar disco favourite with what sound like vocal samples from a completely different record. "Overhanging Love" is his driving, sweaty and life-affirming take on Diana Ross's most potent disco hit, while "Boogie Strut" turns a wedding disco favourite into a driving, bass-heavy chunk of disco-house heat. Finally, "Funktion" is an extra percussive chunk of late night dub disco heaviness that's by far and away the EP's standout moment.

Review: For those who didn't live through the '90s, it was once the done thing to refer to ravers by their rhyming slang title: "Quavers". Therefore this collaborative EP from Chewy Rubs and Fingerman is aimed fairly and squarely at disco ravers. The title track brilliantly sets the tone, peppering a low-slung disco-house groove with intergalactic electronics, echoing spoken word samples and delay-laden string stabs. "Theory Funker" is a lesson in disco-tech heaviness - all swirling samples and acid-fired electronics - while "Maintain the Groove" is a lolloping dance into hazy dub disco territory. The most "disco-rave" cut of all, though, is closer "Maintain The Acid", a mind-altering re-make of the above cut smothered in psychedelic TB-303 acid lines and echoing disco samples.

Review: Seamus Haaji has gathered together a suitably impressive cast of producers for this fourth volume in his Re-Loved label's "All Stars" series of EPs. Conan Liquid kicks things off with a heavily compressed chunk of Clavinet-sporting, delay-laden disco house (the fittingly titled "Hot"), before Frank Virgilio flexes his muscles (and squelchy synths) on the down-low P-funk/disco-funk fusion of "Bite My Groove". Chewy Rubs steals this show with an even more tooled up version of what sounds like a Motown style 1960s soul stomper (the bounce-along heaviness of "Good People"), while Danny "80s Child" Worrall serves up a breezy, colourful and cheery rearrangement of a percussively stuttering '80s soul gem.

'Love Your Glow' has an early 80s feel and much use of filters and FX, while completing the EP is 'Get Enough', a more smooth-rollin' affair that harks back to first-generation disco-house of the mid-90s.

Review: Chewy Rubs' output has been rather impressive of late, so it's no surprise to find that the producer's fifth EP for Re-Loved is another essential outing. He begins with the rolling disco-funk bounce of cheeky Chic rework "Dance, Clap & Move Everybody (Chewy Rubs Future Dub)", where headline-grabbing chorus vocals rise above incessant guitar and vibraphone loops and a suitably heavyweight groove. "Live For-Ever (Chewy Rubs Irene's After-Party Dub)" is a wild, acid-flecked, Tiger & Woods style loop jam destined to ignite early morning dancefloors, while "Airs Groove (Chewy Rubs Rollin' Dub)" is a percussion-laden breakbeat disco smasher straight from the top drawer. If that's not enough to set the pulse racing, insatiably funky closing cut "Feel Good (Chewy Rubs Rub)" should give you serious heart palpitations.
