Review: Manchester hero Chris Massey is back with the Pink Flamingo EP. He serves up some high octane disco on "You Are Devine" featuring none other than The Emperor Machine aka Andy Meecham of Chicken Lips fame. "Floor To the Four" is pretty jacking electro house for the peak time hour. Berlin's ROTCIV steps us to deliver an even more acidified take on things also with his killer remix.

Review: Following EPs from a range of upcoming producers, the 13th Sprechen release sees its boss back at the reins. Massey starts off the release with the jittery, rhythm and searing acid of "Beatdrum", before he moves into more commercial territory with "Record Spins". Sampling a stuttering vocal loop, he drops a menacing but infectious bass line, making for an accessible tune. On "Beatdub", he retreats back underground, accompanied by the sound of chilling sirens, dubbed out beats and jittery percussion, while this approach continues on "Beatdrum (Homeboy Redrum)", where organic percussion and stabbing riffs prevail. However, the EP concludes with the positively upbeat, summery Rave Enka remix of "Record Spins."

Oosh! - "What's That You're Doing" - (7:05) 107 BPM
Review: The Rack & Ruin edits offshoot of Mancunian club/label El Diablo's returns in triumphant form with two heavy duty reworks that will find favour with many disco selectors. El Diablo's Social Club's very own Chris Massey leads the way, tackling the Johnny Wakelin classic "In Zaire" and turning the chugometer up to 11 - expect to hear this up and down the Croatian coastline this summer. Massey's contribution is complemented by Oosh! who are a new name to us, but their edits seemingly have been racking up plenty of plays on Soundcloud. Take a listen to their heavily phased and filtered tweak of McCartney and Wonder's early 80s jazz funk boogie jammer "What's That You're Doing".

Review: For the latest release on his growing Sprechen label, boss man Chris Massey - who also co-curates Paper Recordings' excellent Trash The Wax series - joins forces with Spanish nu-disco don James Rod. The experienced duo begins with the arpeggio-heavy Cerrone tribute "Supernature Sunday", which is in turn given a deeper, woozier and more melodious makeover by Mike Simonetti. The EP's other original Rod/Massey production, "The Disco Sound", is an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink affair, with crunchy guitar riffs and razor sharp string stabs clustering around a mutant disco groove. The EP also boasts two contrasting reworks: an even heavier, piano-fired rub from Harvy (no relation to DJ Harvey) and a breathlessly blissful deep house take by Kimo.

Review: For the latest EP on his fast-rising Sprechen imprint, Chris Massey has joined forces with Spanish producer James Rodriguez. As the title makes clear, the two original productions showcased here were inspired by the druggy, off-kilter world of early '80s mutant disco. They begin with "Take Me Higher", where effects-laden vocal samples and disco string stabs rise above a trippy, Italo-disco style arpeggio, before dipping the tempo on the spaced-out, proto-techno era electronic shuffle of "Spanglish". Gina Breeze provides a chunkier, heavier, dubbed-out interpretation of "Take Me Higher", before Rave-Enka turns "Spanglish" into a new beat-meets-early UK rave smasher.

Review: Chris Massey makes his debut on the always wacky Paper Recordings - a label known for its unpredictable yet marvellous signings - with two tracks of simple but effective deep house cuts for the smaller hours. Fans of Vakula or anything on Firecracker should definitely give this one a listen. You get two remixers to top it all off: 2 Million Beats goes for a disco on "Driven Crazy" and "Nectar Love" receives a fine acid rewiring by Leon Sweet.

Review: Paper Recordings' reputation precedes them in house circles. Now however, they've bitten the bullet and dived into the deep end of the disco pool with this compilation (on sub label Paper Disco) of current nu-disco producers and edit heroes. It's a brave comp that tackles every interpretation of disco, including 2 Billion Beats' deep '80s synth groover "See Us Through", Richard Seabourne's bizarre funk-goes-doomy 303 workout "This Is Acid" and Mezman's bass heavy, dream-pad odyssey. We're looking forward to plenty more disco thrills from this new stable!

Review: Paper Disco's Trash The Wax compilation series certainly offers a lot of bang for your buck. This fourth installment continues the trend, serving up 22 tried-and-tested dancefloor jams for disco-loving DJs. As usual, the selected tracks are a mixture of killer edits (Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee, Solid State, Electric Pendergrass, DJ Rocca & Chris Massey), sparkling remixes (a tasty '80s electrofunk rework of Reggie Got Beats' "It's On Tonight" by Norwegian eccentric Ralph Myerz), and stellar original productions (see 2 Billion Beats' "Bob", Daco's Gladys Knight-sampling throb-job "I Heard It", Picotropico's decidedly Balearic "Time Will Tell"). There's possibly a little more Italo-disco on this edition, but that's no bad thing - especially as the arpeggio-heavy cuts showcased here are universally excellent.

Review: Sprechen is a Manchester based platform to showcase electronic music with a passion for melody, groove, soul and energy. There are no limitations of style and a diverse release policy. For their latest label compilation, the gang celebrates two years in the business - label boss Chris Massey teams up with Spain's James Rod on the funked up nu-disco of "Spanglish" featuring vocals by Danielle Moore, homegirl Gina Breeze serves up some bouncy late night tech house on "Make Me Feel" while Norway's Kohib delivers some true Italo style business on "Hot Pants And Dance Shoes" and Australia's Planet Jumper bring da funk on "Before The Diamond Turns To Dust". Sprechen was launched by former Electric Elephant booker and manager Massey as a side project, alongside his A&R role at Paper Recordings.
