Review: We Mean Disco's All Star Nuggets series of re-edit and rework comps have proved something of a hit in recent times. There's a third installment coming soon, and ahead of that the Austrian imprint has put together a four-track taster EP. There's much to enjoy, from the rush-inducing Balearic sweetness of Fingerman's "Knockin' (Soulful Beatdown)" - all head-nodding bottom end and enveloping soul melodies - and delay-laden disco-soul shuffle of Alan Mooney's "Every Time", to the loopy heaviness and celebratory vibraphone solos of Bachteen's "Coffy is the Colour". Best of all, though, is the 10-minute disco-funk wig-out that is JSki's "Can You Get Down (Universe City Super Tribute)", which makes great use of the source material's hustling groove and bustling breaks.

More please!

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: New York City's Wall Of Fame was established in August of 2014 by P-SOL. They really live up to their name on their new various artists release, which features an all star cast if we've ever seen it! Starting off with Aussie legend Dr. Packer who serves up some instant funk (see what we did right there?) on his truly burning "Instant Groove" while Guildford's Evil Smarty serves up a new rendition of a certain Ms. Vega classic on "4 Love". Elsewhere, Brighton's Fingerman gets down with a deep disco joint for lovers in the form of "Boogie Change Up" and finally the label boss himself - the always reliable Patrick Sullivan aka P SOL gets down with some hazy '70s rock swagger on "Let It Go". This follows up some great releases by UK's Andy Buchan and Napoleon, Munich's Alkalino and Javi Frias. For those of you that are chasing some 'respectful edits' look no further!

Le Diner Et Le Danser (original) - (8:04) 111 BPM
Review: In recent times, Gregg "Fingerman" Holmes has approached Rayko levels of productivity, dropping EP after EP of floor-friendly, house-centric disco edits. Here he's at it again, giving a bunch of boogie classics the filter-heavy, house-friendly treatment. "Dance With You" turns Krystol's "After The Dance Is Through" into a slinky deep house chugger. Label owners Hotbox Boogie deliver a chunky, late night dub of the same track that should please those looking for a more "heads down" take on Holmes' interpretation. Elsewhere "Be Wit U" is looser and groovier in a chiming, synth-heavy '80s soul style, while "Le Diner et La Danser" bumps along on a wave of synthesized bells, flecked guitars and sultry vocal cuts.

Dance action guaranteed.

Here though he seems intent for us to know his true story, and luckily for us he's explaining it through the language of music. "I Know Its Mine" is a snazzy, brassy anthemic jam, "Lenny's Disco" is super camp fun of the Carl Bean variety, "Outta Sight" is more low-slung stuff, and "Honky Honk", with its incredible sliding bassline, is the sound of a roof being raised!

Review: Brighton based nu-disco imprint pays tribute to old school essentials on their latest release by label boss Greg Holmes aka Fingerman and it totally kicks butt! First track "Hey Yo!" hears the drummer get wicked on this James Brown sampling, soul funk hoe down. On the title track it's a true disco classic from wayback that's sampled, but we're not giving it away;
keep digging! There's more of the same on "Way U Move" but it's the two remixes of the title track which are the real shiners on here. The "Situation Remix" is a slowed down tool version with lovely Rhodes piano, while the "James Rod Hypnotick Remix" is more on the energetic tip with funk bassline and killer synth lead to boot!

Review: "Button Pusher", Gregg 'Fingerman' Holmes' hot-to-trot 2015 disco edit, remains one of Hot Digits' best-selling tracks. It makes perfect sense, then, that Holmes has decided to get it remixed. Aussie maestro Dr Packer steps up first, filtering out the swirling strings and adding wavering TB-303 lines on a superb disco-acid interpretation. Predictably, Italian slo-mo don LTJ takes the opposite approach, dipping the tempo and wisely sticking closer to Holmes' sumptuous source material. The final version comes from deep house sort Martin Hayes, who turns "Button Pusher" into a stomping chunk of filter-heavy disco-house energy. As if that wasn't enough to get you to part with your hard earned cash, Holmes has also included another disco-house smasher in the shape of "Mainliner (Bonus Tool)".

Review: Having been in the game since 1996, Portsmouth-based nu-disco DJ Gregg Holmes knows a thing or two about slick disco re-edits. Here, under his Fingerman alias, he treats us to five vintage reworks. "2 Remember" takes good old Shalamar, stretches them out and wraps them in disco swishes, with more claps than a standing ovation. Elsewhere, Teena Marie's "I Need Your Lovin'" gets gently teased and filtered on "Just A Little Luv". Bloodstone get extra electronic percussion on "Stronger Love" and The Chi-Lites get a dirty house workover on "Move That Bottom".

Review: According to our records, "Back2ThaBeatdown" marks Hot Digits boss Fingerman's first solo single for almost three years. As the title suggests, the music on the EP was inspired in part by Detroit Beatdown, a mid-tempo style more associated with deep house than the disco cuts the British producer has used as his source material. Our pick of a strong quartet of cuts is "High Priorities", a rolling disco instrumental re-imagined as a toe-tapping slice of mid set dancefloor dreaminess. That said, other listeners will rightly gravitate towards the excitable, string-laden disco-funk of "Brass Monkeys", the even heavier and hazier "Don't Leave Me, Yeah?" and the rubbery disco-house grooves of "The Feel Good Factor".

Elsewhere we get more elongated funk joints on Dr Packer's "Feel Like Dancing" and Pontchartrain's "Funk Down", whilst Peza decides to slip Harlequin Four's electro classic "Set It Off" some nasty acid for some bonkers party action.

Here, on Hot Jints Vol 2, they've rustled up some newer names to mix with the old. P-Sol delivers some swishy sun bleached laid back grooves on "The Closed Door", "Keep On Ducking", by Raw Artes & Jack Whitey, is a jauntier affair - all clavinet-fuelled funk, Causal Connection's "Sun Glider" opts for a fine duel between elastic slap bass and linear guitar licks, and finally Fingerman closes the show with the uplifting orchestrated harmonies of "Summertime Stringz".

Fingerman channels some vintage Larry Levan vibes on "Boogie Beatdown" before The Silver Rider wraps things up the funky guitar and slap bass frenzy that is "George Gio Metro".

Review: Dynamicron's Los Grandes label is fast becoming one of the more reliable sources of contemporary disco. Their Black Lace compilations, which feature tracks that sit somewhere between straight-up edits and disco-tinged house productions, have proved particularly popular. There's predictably plenty to enjoy on this sixth instalment in the serious, from the righteous rubbery bass and space synths of Sunner Soul's "One Game" and heavyweight Italo pulse of Nicko's "Electronic Disguise", to the bouncy cut-up disco house antics of Mr Moustache Love's "El Coca", and Plastic Fantastic's dreamy downtempo gem "Beyond The Horizon". While the latter stands out like a sore thumb next to such boisterous dancefloor fare, it arguably provides the album's most startling moment.

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: Every now and then we get a faint signal from this Beaten Space Probe, lost in the depths of the nebulous disco cosmos. It usually crackles through on our radio about once a year and is unanimously greeted with whoops of delight and much dancing on our analogue space consoles. This missive contains nine galaxian edits, presumably all peak time bangers on the hottest alien dancefloors. Highlights include the elasticated bass frenzy of "Double Lines", the Kool & The Gang redux "Don't Wanna Dance" and Fingerman's electro-boogie blaster, "Like 2 Baby". Far out!

Aiming to collect unreleased reworks from the players on the re-edit scene, this album boasts, amongst others, Karim's fleshed-out rework of Millie Jackson's "Keep The Homefires Burnin", Copycat's extended "Lovely Day" by Bill Withers and label boss himself, Disco Tech's teased-out version of Sister Sledges' 'Pretty Baby".

Review: It seems that the nu-disco trend of re-edits is one that just keeps growing. Everyone from Siberia to Greece is doing it, and now the fever has spread to Ireland too in the form of the Get Down Edits label. Thankfully these guys don't (usually) pick the obvious stuff - Fingerman samples Luther Vandross' "Never Too Much" on "Too Much" so they lose points for that, but generally it's all good jazzy, funky retro jams.

Review: Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint has always reflected his production style, delivering releases that gleefully blur the boundaries between re-edits, remixes and original material, and blend elements of disco, funk, soul, boogie and deep house. This groovy, warm and floor-friendly formula is much in evidence on this first anniversary compilation. Featuring a blend of previously released gear, exclusives and a bonus DJ mix from Fingerman, Hot Digits: Year One is an effortlessly entertaining collection. There's naturally much to admire, from the subtle house beats and P-funk synths of Fingerman's own "Shine Yo Litez" (a rework of an old Grangers tune), and the disco-funk chunkiness of Groove Motion's "Party Now", to the compressed, dubbed-out disco house madness of Chewy Rubs' "Let It Go".

Review: Every 12 months, Fingerman's prolific Hot Digits imprint serves up an epic compilation entirely made up of exclusive, previously unheard re-edits, reworks and original productions. They're invariably excellent and this year's edition - the fifth in total - is even more epic than usual. There's naturally plenty to set the pulse racing amongst the dancefloor focused 32-track selection, from the throbbing Italo-disco style electronic sleaziness of Peza's "I Gotta Little Love" and the bouncy, acid-flecked cheeriness of Limpdisco's "Rush Hour", to the angular nu-disco heaviness of Andy Kidd's "The Dope Cube", the sparkling 80s boogie goodness of LUP INO's "Don't Stop Fooling" and and disco-funk-goes-house pump of Fingerman's "Family Ties". Keep an eye out too for rock solid rubs by Dr Packer, Chuggin Edits, Rayko and Andy Buchan.

Review: Having already carved a decent name for himself in the nu-disco universe, 80s Child (aka Danny Worrall), now turns his hand to running labels. Masterworks is his new imprint, and this eponymous compilation is its debut release. It's a total all-you-can-eat buffet of contemporary disco, featuring a whole host of familiar names. There are a whopping 23 tracks on here, some of the best include Tomas Malo's sultry grinder, "After The Rain", Yam Who?'s bouncy sunkissed disco joint "Find Out" and the digi-freestyle breaks of TV's "Love Situation".

There's a lot to boogie to here, and it'll all get the job done, but the best include Alkalino's cheeky house remake of Prince's Get Off ("23 Positions"), Jayl Funk's sensuous electro-boogie bomb "Do It Baby" and Butcher's own rework of Rockwell's '80s office party fave "Somebody's Watching Me". Basically all your party worries will be sorted in one with this package!

Review: Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint has packed in a lot of releases over the past 12 months, as this expansive roundup of the label's second year in business proves. Featuring 27 tracks and a bonus mix by the South Coast dwelling label boss, there's naturally plenty to admire. Highlights include, but are not limited to, the rolling, head-nodding grooves of Eyeco M's "Keeping It To Myself", the killer proto-house throb of "Tonight" by Bad Barbie vs Evil Smarty, the sexy, string-drenched disco loveliness of P-Sol's "Can't You See", LTJ's trumpet-boasting funk bumper "Fat Thing", and the hard-wired, bass-heavy rework of Julia & Company's "Breakin' Down (Sugar Samba)" by Melon Bomb. It is, though, all pretty darn hot.

Review: Nu-disco hero 80s Child has come a long way since Masterworks Vol 1, the inaugural release on his Masterworks label a year and a half ago. Now we have the follow-up and it reveals how the label's sound has grown. There are 26 sizzling bangers on board this time, boasting a million delirious dance floor moments. Highlights of which include the fizzy thump-funk of 80s Child's "Computerized", Peza's doomy analogue electro mash up "Filmed Message" and the smooth, synthetic boogie of "Much Too Much" by Deelicious.

The Alpaca Edits crew has done a superb job in rounding up contributions from some of this generation's most popular scalpel fiends, including '80s Child, Dr Packer, Fingerman and Fabiolous Barker. Highlights come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from the head-nodding, horn-heavy funk of Rafael Fernandez's "Uh-Oh", and Stephen Richards' house-friendly Kool & The Gang rework ("Fresh"), to the piano-totin', boogie brilliance of Bad Barbie Vs Evil Smarty's "Loose Juice", and Goldboy's standout nu-disco jam "Under Game".

There are 15 quality scalpel jobs this time around, with highlights including the rumbling, evening poolside boogie of "I Need A Drink" by Hotmood, the punchy electro-disco of "Head Lights' by Stephen Richards and the white-hot 70s disco rock of "I'm A Man" Pontchartrain.

Review: An 11-track compilation of modern day funk and disco here from Norway's Walking Disco stable. While Rayko and C Da Afro are both represented, the emphasis generally is on lesser-known names, but there's still plenty of quality on offer. Fingerman conjures the classier, jazzier end of 80s boogie nicely on 'Mind Fonk', while equally convincing are the mid-70s velvet-suited disco vibes of Disco Funk Spinner's 'Fascinating Strike'. Funk Hunk apes classic Moroder on 'After Dark', while label owner Saskin S bookends the collection with two slow-moving funk jams, 'Yes, You Know I'm Right' and 'My Pnoop'. Classy stuff.

Review: Situationism is run by a mysterious 'collective of DJs and producers from the five valleys'. Although little is revealed about their identities, we do know that this compilation is their biggest release yet and it boasts the mighty "On It" by Peza. The track's clever fusion of a boogie sample (Starguard's High On The Boogie) and some subtle 303 work has got people talking and dancing already. The quality stays high over the remaining tracks too, highlights including George Kelly's melancholic Italo gem, "Trip to Jupiter", Vampire Disco's moody synth prowler "Orbit" and the chilled cocktail grooves of Alkalino's "Trigger".

As a showcase for everything that's good about the imprint, it does a bang up job, gleefully jogging between exotic mid-tempo disco and disco-funk (Frank Virgilio, Dr Packer, The funk District), slo-mo disco-acid (Fingerman's tremendous rework of B-Jam's "Sundog"), kaleidoscopic, reworked '80s boogie business (Casual Connection, Melon Bomb, the hard-tweaked filters and heady loop business of Chewy Rubs), tried-and-tested party-starters (Smashed Atoms, Get Down Edits remixing Stephen Richards) and giddy peak-time workouts (Shit Hot Soundsystem, Dave Gerrard, Thomas Maslo, Kiu D). As the old saying goes, this is all killer, no filler.
