Review: Jacques Renault and Marcos Cabral's OTP Party Breaks series has always been a reliable source of floor-filling edits and reworks. This installment is arguably one of the strongest releases in the series to date. Cabral kicks things off with his edit of "Latin Box", a formidable chunk of titanium-clad proto-house business that evokes images of sweaty New York basements and Chicago warehouses. Renault continues the theme on his synth-heavy homage to the 'proto' era, "Love Reaction" - all razor-sharp drum edits, cut-up vocal stabs and fierce freestyle synths. Crate-digger and renowned editor Kon provides some sublime loopy disco on "No Mistake", before WooHoo steal the show with the low-slung disco house monster "Nightwalker", a cut-and-paste fusion of elements from familiar (and lesser-known) disco cuts.
Review: Some eighteen months after it first dropped on wax, Whiskey Disco's brilliant Disco Galaxie EP finally gets a digital download release. Given the quality on show, it should be an essential purchase for any club-focused disco DJ. The real killer is Kon's "Promised Land" edit, a thrillingly epic re-arrangement of a long slung, bass-driven disco monster that slowly builds to a dubbed-out crescendo over nine mesmerizing minutes. Elsewhere, Jacques Renault's "Disco Galaxie" is an authentic scalpel rework of a swirling, string-laden space disco stomper, while Love Dance moves towards Philadelphia Soul territory on the impassioned disco hustle of "Who Is He".
