Review: A four-tracker here from Chewy Rubs, coming on his own Bandolier label and operating, as the title suggests, at a slightly lower tempo than is his wont. The EP opens with 'Acid Chugger', whose very name kindly saves yours truly having to think of what to say about it! 'Fro Mo' is another midpaced affair topped with dialogue samples, 'Jazz Cat' opens with a "this is a how it should be done" vocal sample (the first of many) and has a party-hearty, Jalapeno-esque feel, before finally we come to 'Something For Your Soul', another chugging, throbbing affair with treated, spoken vocal snips and lashings of acid bass.

Feed Your Soul (Chewy Rubs dub) - (5:57) 121 BPM
Review: UK deep house and disco stalwart Chewy Rubs is back with four brand new cuts whose overall MO is summed up rather nicely by the EP title. 'Chunky But Funky' itself centres around a hefty, squelching bassline that's married to a solid 4/4 kick, tizzy hats and a single, nagging piano chord, with spacier synths joining the party in the second half. Elsewhere, 'Dance To It' is a rollicking disco roller with a male "dance to it" vocal joined by chorus'd female "dance!" shouts, 'Disco Evo' ploughs a rawer funk furrow, while 'Feed Your Soul' brings the strutty deep house vibes. Good stuff all round.

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').

Swagger - (6:16) 120 BPM
Review: Chewy Rubs' 'Ruff Beats' series reaches its fourth instalment in a little over 12 months, with deep, tracky grooves the order of the day once more. 'Keep On Doing It' is a mid-paced affair that tops moody synth sweeps with an echoing male vocal urging us to "keep on doing it like that", 'My Definition' is a more driving, house-ified cut that gets free 'n' easy with a Dream Warriors vocal snip, 'Sensations Of The Mind' marries snatches of two well-known vocals to a heavyweight funk bassline and hard-slammin' 4/4s, while 'Swagger' again plunders classic hip-hop from New York, New York (that's a clue!) for vocal inspiration.

Review: There's definitely something of a signature sound to Chewy Rubs releases: perhaps we could call it "chewy disco", or something? And, oh look, here comes a new four-tracker on his own Bandolier label called just that! If you've enjoyed the Naughty But Nice veteran's previous output then suffice to say these latest bullets won't disappoint: there's plenty of raw funk coursing through the veins of both 'Finger Lickers' (arguably the EP standout) and 'Getting Serious', while 'Get Up' has the loopy feel of mid-90s underground disco-house and 'Let's Go (To The Disco Dub)' brings the mirrorballs and handclaps nostalgia.

Review: Former Naughty But Nice man Chewy Rubs teams up with another unsung hero of the UK scene, Travski, for this four-tracker on his own Bandolier label - with impeccable results. 'Jellybean' gets the ball rolling with throbbing synth-bass and rap vocal bites from LL Cool J's 'I'm Bad' and Dr Octagon AKA Kool Keith's 'Bear Witness', after which there's more party-hearty cut-up action on 'Contra D'. We then drop down into a deeper groove for 'Feel This Dub', a bassy slow-burner topped with synth-strings and indecipherable, barely-there vocal snips, and stay there for the jazzier 'Feel This', which rocks the house-eulogising diva vocal from Antoine Clamaran & D-Plac's 'Get Up'.

Games In The Street - (5:28) 120 BPM Hot
Review: Chewy Rubs teams up once more with semi-regular partner-in-crime North Laine for this two-tracker on his own Bandolier label. The funk-tastic 'Games In The Street' finds the deadly duo reworking 'Street Games', a 1977 single by The Blackbyrds. That suggests the accompanying 'Win To Love' may also be a re-edit, but if so we couldn't tell you what it's a re-edit of... either way, though, it's a lively lil' dancefloor rumpshaker with Caribbean-sounding percussion (think 'Soul Limbo' by Booker T & The MGs) and a boogie-style "tell me how to win your love" female vocal.

Discopia - (6:43) 119 BPM
Review: Nu-disco's number one (imaginary) wookiee returns to Spa in Disco with a one-shot missive, 'Discopia'. Beginning with glistening guitar notes and suspenseful synth strings rising above a Giorgio Moroder/Bobby Orlando style bassline, the track is driving and dancefloor-ready but also surprisingly jazzy thanks to the presence of some seriously attractive jazz guitar licks. Throw in some choice vocal snippets, a couple of lovely breakdowns and snappy drum machine percussion that subtly builds in intensity as the track progresses, and you have a gloriously addictive, endlessly entertaining workout that should get plenty of plays during the summer festival season.

King Cosmic - "Midnight On Jupiter" - (5:07) 100 BPM
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...

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...

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...

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.

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

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.

Review: Chewy Rubs is one nu-disco producer who's never afraid to throw in the odd curveball, and seldom has this been more evident than on 'Pluckers Luck', which sounds like a crazed disco producer jamming with an entire Russian orchestra - pretty sure we actually heard a bassoon in there at point! 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.

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!

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.

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!
