Edoardo Barbi first donned the Gledd alias earlier this month, contributing two Afro-tinged reworks to About Disco's On The Afro Funk Trail EP. This time round, he's in full on peak-time disco mode. Check, for example, opener "Better", where familiar horn lines and spacey synth solos cluster around his tactile grooves and carefully arranged Latin disco style samples. Barbi reaches for the filters on "NY City", a pleasingly loose but bass-heavy cut that borrows extensively from a once popular disco-funk workout, before rounding off proceedings via the thrillingly riotous, horn-heavy stomp of sweaty closer "Foxy".
Sleazy McQueen presents another wicked serving of Disco deviance on the always reliable Whiskey Disco. The North Carolina based imprint's 57th edition gives us four more surefire disco edits by the likes of Tony Chocoloney from Melbourne, Australia who gives us some funked-up soulpower on "Less Groove", Ukrainian Alex Zuiev gives us a loungey kinda something' on the tres chic "Valentina" and Anthony Mansfield delivers an unrepentant use of sleek filter sweeps throughout the slo-mo antics of "It's Too Late" featuring a bit of help from good buddy DJ M3.
