Review: Contemporary disco with the funk and soul in full effect is the order of the day on this V/A offering from Ravanelli Disco Club. Vigi's opening 'Loving You' comes from the more discofied end of the deep house and garage spectrum and should be a small-hours cert, after which comes Kousto's 'Save My Soul', which marries rolling tribal drums to a looped soulful male vocal, and as such should work on soul and soulful house floors alike. It's then time to get up, stand up as Sauco's aptly-titled 'Twisted Funk' takes us into struttier territory, before finally Donny Rotten brings the 70s-inspired nu-disco vibes with 'Her Way'.
Donny Rotten - "Londres Au Paris" - (5:00) 128 BPM
Double Dare Ya - (5:42) 124 BPM
Review: Sydney duo Tuesday Brunch serve up four tracks that'll appeal to those who like their disco on the smooth, jazzy n' soulful side. 'Satin Lovers' flirts with both jazz-funk and mellow 70s west coast sounds but 'SOS', which follows, has more of an early 80s boogie feel. We then stay in boogie territory for the really quite pace-y 'Londres Au Paris' with its distinctive "this is your time" chanted chorus, before the EP's completed by the more overtly disco-house vibes of 'Double Dare Ya', a defiantly summery, sunny affair with some killer stabs and liberal use of the filters.
