Review: Jack Le Funk is "Vibin" and we've been invited to join in the fun. The Tasty Recordings mainstay is in something of a party-hearty mood this time round, and seemingly has his sights set on peak-time dancefloors. We're treated to two versions of the hugely enjoyable "Funk Off", where familiar disco guitar riffs, bustling bass and pitched-up vocal samples cluster around a chunky, no-nonsense house groove. Of the two mixes, our pick is probably the filter-sporting Dub, though both will do wonders on the dancefloor. The EP's other cut, "Vibin", is a warm, summer-ready chunk of bass-heavy disco-house built around hum-along backing vocal samples which we believe were lifted from a killer jazz-funk cut.
Review: The third volume in Tasty Recordings' ongoing "It's So Disco" compilation series more than lives up to its title, serving up a sizzling selection of bold, party-hearty dancefloor workouts rich in funk-fuelled disco samples. There's nothing here that could be described as "disco" in the purist sense, just fun and occasionally furiously fast club cuts that are guaranteed to set dancefloors alight. Our picks include the rushing, full throttle '80s disco-meets-disco-house insanity of Jack Le Funk's "Funk Off", the pitched-up, funk-fuelled disco-house stomp of Serial Thrilla's "Everybody Dance", the slap bass-propelled mid-tempo bump of Boogie Freaks' "Bring The Old School Back" and the mash-up brilliance of Discotron's "Doin' Their Own Thing", which somehow manages to join the dots between Coldcut's "People Hold On", original disco, '80s electro and disco-house.
