Review: Four tracks in a total of five mixes make up this latest offering from Spanish disco don James Rod, which is brought to you by Brighton-based Hot Digits Music. 'Matusalem Robot' is a bass-heavy, guitar-flecked chugger topped with squeeling, squalling synths, before getting a housed-up remix from Chewy Rubs and label boss Fingeman. Elsewhere, 'Showdown' is an early 80s-style funker with a rhythmic vocal loop and much use of sci-fi FX, 'We Celebrate' ploughs a more soul-inspired mid-70s groove but via a dubby, Levan-esque filter, while 'Latin Ton Funk' shouldn't really need a lot of explaining...

Saratoga - (5:37) 117 BPM
Review: Since launching in the autumn of 2019, Gouranga Music has periodically offered up some of the most interesting and inventive nu-disco cuts around. Happily, we can confirm that this EP from Spanish scene stalwart James Rod more than lives up to the label's high standards, with the Golden Soul Records founder confidently flitting between intoxicating, Moroder-goes-Italo-disco drug-chug (mind-altering mid-tempo opener 'Die Herrschaft'); undulating, pitched-down, synth-heavy bubbliness (the even slower 'Licantropia', which includes some suitably tumbling and glassy-eyed guitar motifs); and driving, punk-funk influenced nu-disco/dub disco fusion (the dark and foreboding 'Saratoga').

Review: Having recently notched up a sixth year in business, Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint is in a celebratory mood - hence this all-action round-up of recent delights and unheard treats from the disco-loving label. Encompassing no less than 30 tunes, the collection giddily skips between warming beatdown disco (P-Sol's "Walter"), Mark E style slo-mo loop jams (Vigi's "I'll Be There") and glassy-eyed Balearic nu-disco (Picklejam's "Untitled Love"), before raising its hands skywards as the peak-time party-starters begin to appear thick and fast. Highights in this category include the vibrant jazz-house flex of Dexter Jones' "Swing Thing", the bustling boogie re-edit business of Monsieur Von Pratt's "Let's Dance" and the hearty disco-funk heaviness of Chewy Rubs' "Funky Bee Bop".

Out The Invaders - (6:02) 106 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Back in November 2019, Golden Soul Records chief James "Rod" Rodriguez released "Italoatomical Gems", a tidy collection of re-edits of largely lesser-known Italo-disco gems that the Spanish producer had subtly tooled-up and taken in a different direction. He's at it again on this hastily released single, which was produced in isolation during Spain's COVID-19 lockdown. There's plenty to set the pulse racing, not least the throbbing, delay-laden late night pressure of "Skyler", where pulsing deep space chords and slivers of melody rise above a chugging, arpeggio-driven electronic groove. Elsewhere, "Out The Invaders" is a little darker and moodier in tone, with reggae style stabs and plenty of glassy-eyed electronic flourishes, while EP opener "Two Heads Are Better" is a stripped-back, faintly foreboding throb-job.

Review: Thicker than clotted cream and twice as opulent, Golden Soul's latest label retrospective is well worth your attention. It focuses on material released by the Spanish imprint in 2019, which was arguably the label's strongest year to date. Label founder James Rod makes a number of killer contributions, with the colourful, bass-heavy Balearic nu-disco chug of "Let's Play Together" (a collaboration with Parissior) and the dreamy Italo-disco throb of "Heart Rock (Aleito Mix)" standing out. Elsewhere, get your ears around the sparkling, breakdown-boasting sunrise rush of Dubhouser's "Ereh" and the thrill-a-minute Euro-disco effervescence that is Hoochie Coochie Papa's "Work My Body".

Review: After nearly a decade in the game, Andrea Rucci's Cosmic Sumo release their first-ever 'best of' compilation. Unsurprisingly, cosmic and Italo-disco vibes predominate: you won't find many cowbells, handclaps or female multi-part vocal harmonies here (though there are some). But if it's Carpenter-esque synths, druggy Afro-inspired beats, bleepy electro flourishes and a distinct whiff of mid-80s Europe you're after then you're in the right place, because here all of the above are provided in spades by the big-hitting likes of James Rod, Tulioxi and, perhaps most signficantly, Italian founding father Alexander Robotnick himself.

Review: James "Rod" Rodriguez steps out of his comfort zone here, briefly departing his Golden Soul label for a confident, ear-catching outing on Paper Recordings. Opener "Belong City" delivers a near perfect balance between druggy Italo-disco chug and woozy, synth-laden nu-disco psychedelia, while the accompanying Draco remix brilliantly re-imagines the track as a trippy slab of revivalist '80s synth-wave wonkiness with a touch of contemporary nu-disco sheen. Meanwhile, "Chamanes Ochenteros" is a fine slab of arpeggio-powered Italo/nu-disco fusion that's subsequently given a low-slung, Afro-Cosmic makeover by Leca. The latter version is particularly mind-altering, though its focus remains on the dancefloor throughout.

Review: In recent times, James Rodriguez Navarro (that's James Rod to you and me) has rightly saved his best material for the Golden Soul label he launched way back in 2015. There's naturally much to admire on the Spanish producer's first outing of 2020, from the hybrid nu-disco/deep house/Italo-disco throb of the decidedly spacey opener "Special Rod Paradise" - check the delay-laden guitar motifs and intergalactic synth flourishes - to the filter-heavy driving house vibes of closing cut "Marthian", where squally trumpet solos rise from the abyss to catch the ear. The track sandwiched in between, Latin-tinged deep disco-house bumper "Paralatino", is also rather good.

Review: Synth-tastic nu disco is the order of the day on this latest despatch from Spanish producer Jaime Rodr?guez Navarro, better known as James Rod, which comes on his own Golden Soul label. His original marries an Italo-esque synth throb to rolling nu disco beats and occasional western/Mexican-style horn fanfares. Azaria's remix doesn't flip the script too much, but does up the tempo a notch and beef up the bottom end; the Aleito Remix is a little sparser and nudges towards progressive house territory, while the Rayko & James Rod Remix drops the tempo slightly to give the track a druggier, chuggier feel.

Review: Clad head to toe in his finest carnival threads, Golden Soul Records chief James Rodriguez grabs his scalpel and sets to work on a second selection of lesser-known Brazilian music gems. Opener "You Are Me Dream (Sambasoul Re-edit)" is a near perfect revision of a breezy, sun-kissed Brazilian gem, with Rodriguez brilliantly combining summery samba-disco samples with an elastic drumbeat and restless funky acid motifs. "Pernangola (Boogie Groove Re-edit)" is a loopier, chunkier and more obviously bass-heavy affair built around jangly samples from what sounds like a samba-folk record, while "Minsumbobo" is a bouncy re-interpretation of a Brazilian P-funk work out rich in kaleidoscopic synthesizer lines, Bootsy style bass and swirling electronic effects.

Review: For his latest outing on Golden Soul, James Rod has decided to pay tribute to Italian dance music in his own special way. First up is "Cootutto (Italian Boogie Madness Edit)", a loopy, head-nodding and toe-tapping tweak of what sounds like an early '80s Italian tribute to George Clinton/Bootsy Collins style P-funk. "Splendido Splendente (Rettore Super-House Re-Edit)" offers a more forthright and funky excursion into loopy, filtered disco-house territory, while closing cut "Ok OK (Italo-House Re-Edit)" re-invents a chiming chunk of synth-powered boogie as a kaleidoscopic romp through nu-disco/peak-time house fusion.

Review: Venezuela's Juan Laya and London's Jorge Montiel only put out their first 'Electropical' collection of Latin-infused jazz, funk and disco grooves last year and now here we are, up to Part 3 already! Across the EP's seven tracks, the pair - also known collectively as Los Charly's Orchestra - explore various musical pastures from the upbeat and summery ('Sexmachina', the Club Mix of 'Spacial Paradise') to the more contemplative and cinematic ('Kalimba Variations', 'San Juan' feat Grupo Madera), ending on an African-inspired note with the Afro-Funk Mix of 'Spacial Paradise'). Will no doubt be big for the likes of Gilles Peterson, Mr Scruff and Snowboy.

Review: In normal circumstances, we'd be a little worried if someone served us "Golden Cream". We know we're safe in the hands of DJ/producer James Rodriguez though, with the compilation representing the cream of the crop from the Spanish producer's Golden Soul Records imprint. There's naturally much to enjoy across the 17-track collection, with Rodriguez opting for cuts that flit between kaliedoscopic nu-disco headiness (Italo Brutalo's remix of his and Disco Doubles' "White Sands"), Clavinet-happy acid disco chunkiness ("Crazy Bass" by The Players and DJ Steevo), elastic electrofunk with a Middle Eastern flavour (Dim Zach's remix of JB Dizzy's "Transistor"), driving late night intensity (Los Fugazi's "Afterglow (Flxxx Remix)", peak-time piano fun (Get Down Edits glistening remix of Slync's loved-up "Neon") and rushing disco goodness ("Tradlord" by Call Me Classic).

Review: Rayko and James Rod's "Classics of Arrikitaun" re-edit series consistently hits the mark, something we attribute to their often left-of-centre choice of source material. This seventh volume in the series is naturally both on-point and action packed. Rayko kicks things off with the brilliantly pitched-down P-funk chug of "Dude" - all baggy electric piano riffs, squelchy electronics and hazy talkbox vocals - before returning to action later in the EP via the ricocheting drum machine hits, eyes-closed guitars and swirling chords of 1980s alternative synth-pop cut "Night of Dragons". James Rod explores similar sonic territory on chugging Balearic synth-pop revision "Hi Ho Te", while "Love It" is a bounding, sun-kissed version of a mid-80s, post-boogie pop hit.

Review: For the second time in as many weeks, James Rod (real name James Rodriguez) has his scalpel out. Last time out, it was all about gentling tooling up American and European disco-boogie records; this time around, the Spaniard has his wicked way with a trio of sun-kissed Brazilian jams of the late 1970s and early '80s. First up is "Paico", a chunky revision of a breezy, horn-heavy samba-disco number that Rodriguez has brought bang up to date with the addition of dub delays, lolloping drums, and a thickset synth bassline. The arguably superior "Ela Disco" brilliantly dubs out an electrofunk era chunk of Brazilian disco brilliance, while "Latin Life" is a filter-sporting slab of mid-tempo disco-house chug rich in jangling guitar riffs and insanely heavy bass.

Review: While he's released some killer original productions over the years, most of which fit into the "synth-heavy nu-disco" category, James 'Rod" Rodriguez's re-edits have consistently been amongst the best around. Predictably, there's plenty to set the pulse racing amongst the Spaniard's latest batch of tried-and-tested reworks. We're particularly enjoying opener "Fornur Love", a peak-time disco bubbler made extra-potent thanks to Rodriguez's addition of a killer new acid bassline. "Groovin On Boogie" is arguably even heavier, with Rodriguez successfully sticking a rocket under a bouncy, horn-heavy disco smasher, while the undulating acid style bass returns with a vengeance on the '80s disco grandiosity of closing cut "Running Of My Love" [sic].

Gazeebo's 'Soul Dance' is rooted in the deep funk of the early 70s, Phunk's 'Let It Move You' is a brass-spangled disco-house groover, Rayko's 'B-Nano' has an 80s Italo vibe, 'Whishbone' by Parissior channels late 70s Euro-disco, and so it goes on for six more very playable nu-disco bullets.

This time round, boss man Rayko has gathered together some of the label's most potent re-edits. The quality threshold remains impressively high throughout, with highlights including James Rod's chugging and cheery disco-boogie shuffler "So Easy", the dreamy deep house throb of In Flagranti's loopy version of "Walking In The Rain", the sparkling saccharine soul/jazz-funk flex of Yam Who's revision of "In Your Eyes" and the pulsating Italo-disco/disco-funk fusion of Ziggy Phunk's take on "One Evening". Throw in a clutch of top-notch Rayko re-edits and the result is an essential collection of floor-focused reworks.

Review: The first "Masterworks Legends" compilation saw label boss Danny Worrall giving digital debuts to a whole host of previously vinyl-only cuts. We're not sure whether he's taken the same approach this time round, but the quality of the material remains pleasingly high. Beginning with Dr Packer's hot-to-trot revision of Kiu D's Blaxploitation disco workout "Dynamite", Worrall offers up a swathe of hypnotic, disco-tinged house head-nodders (Ooft's "I Am Love" being a glassy-eyed standout), tasty '80s electrofunk revisions (Woodhead, The Silver Rider, Coutel, his own '80s Child project), thumping disco club cuts (Natasha Kitty Kat, Kiu D, James Rod, Ponchartrain) and sparkling nu-disco box jams (Gradient Logic). If you're looking for more tried-and-tested treats to pep up your sets, you should add this to your cart right now.

There's plenty to set the pulse racing throughout, from the Clavinet-sporting crunchiness of Limpdisco's compilation-opening "Moving To '70s" and Spiritcatcher's D-Train style NYC boogie revision of Julian Sanza's "Can't Stop The Feeling", to the jazz funk-flecked deep house/disco fusion of Nowsense's "Smile" and Situation's wonderfully atmospheric electro-acid revision of James Rod's "Disco Rocket". Naturally, there are plenty of Rayko tracks and remixes dotted throughout, including a wonderfully spacey and bass-heavy take on Ilya Santana's "Electrik Mind".

Review: There's a Spaniard in the works at Midnight Riot, as James "Rod" Rodriguez makes his first appearance on Yam Who's erstwhile imprint for almost two years. The Rare Wiri regular naturally hits the ground running with "Joe Joe", where razor sharp disco string samples seemingly leap above a metronomic, analogue-ruch, arpeggio-driven groove, before brilliantly rearranging and reworking a jazz guitar-laden slab of '80s soul bliss ("Sweet Jones"). He steps further towards mid-tempo disco-house territory on the metronomic P-funk revision "You Want Love", while title track "Hot Flash" is a riotous fusion of crunchy Clavinet lines, alien synths and fizzing horn riffs underpinned by another seriously heavy groove.

Review: Golden soul boys James Rod and Rayko go twos up on another supreme disco volume on RWS's "Arrikitaun" series. Upbeat, slippery and 80s to its sexy core, Rayko takes the lead with a cosmic loopy chugger "Body Language" and closes the four tracker with the dubbed out warehouse shaking electro boogie thumper "Run From Danger". In between we have two juicy floor fillers from Rod; "Still Contrast" taps into a slick and sexy Alexander O'Neil vibe while "His Running" plays the banger of the set with a jittering slap bass frenzy. Bring on volume seven....

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: 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.

Review: London's Midnight Riot have a had a steady stream of releases throughout 2017, with several excellent compilations exploring the many shades of nu-disco music: such as last month's fabulous Japanese Boogie & Disco Reworks - Volume 2, Balearic Headspace - Volume 2, back in August plus Joutro Mundo presents - Brazilian Boogie & Disco Reworks - Volume Duo in the middle of the year. Here they present African Disco Juice, which as the name would suggest: has all you Nigerian and Ghanaian boogie fans sorted with this fine bunch of re-edits and similarly influenced original productions. Highlights include Reverso68 main man Pete Herbert's smooth and slinky "Agama", London lo-slung duo Psychemagik with the groovy "Carnival De Trancoso" and label staples Yam?Who with some seriously spiritual life music on the uplifting "Pure Heat". And indeed, it sure is!

Review: Spanish nu-disco don James Rodriguez is in fine form on their first appearance for 80's Child's Masterworks Music stable. There's something particularly alluring about opener "Stay Mine", a sumptuous fusion of head-nodding disco and tactile boogie full of sweeping strings, sensual female vocal hooks and a killer groove. He doffs a cap towards boogie-inspired loop-house maestros Tiger & Woods on the superb "Tone of Love" and "Unlimited". The Madrid-based producer arguably saves the best till last with "Win You Back", a nine-minute boogie epic that sits somewhere between the languid shuffle of the EP's opening track and the loop jams showcased elsewhere.

Review: To celebrate hitting 20 releases, Wonder Stories has decided to put out the label's first compilation. Wonder Buds is largely made up of arguably overlooked back catalogue highlights, but also includes a handful of previously unreleased tracks to appease regular label-watchers. There's plenty to set the pulse racing throughout, from the jostling Italo-disco/nu-disco fusion of Pop District's remix of Steve Cook's "Notice Me" and the boogie-influenced cosmic disco chug of DJ Rocca's Aimes rework (the brilliant "Notice Me"), to the foreboding psychedelic disco-chug of Curses' "Brains Bones Blood" and the acid-fired pulse of Los Fugazzi's "Paralel" [sic]. Oh, and the saucer-eyed, Balearic-inspired nu-disco dreaminess that is Mighty Mouse's wonderful remix of Air Zaire's "Love '94".
