Review: Kontinents may be a new name, but the producers behind the project - one of whom is based in Budapest, the other in Moscow - have apparently both tasted solo success in the nu-disco scene. You can hear this experience in the way they've written and produced "Dance All Night", where breezy and attractive vocals from guest singer Shusha rise above a bubbly backing track rich in chunky synth-bass, bright nu-disco electronics and sun-kissed lead lines. Bonus cut "Be With You (Extended Mix)" is arguably even stronger and sunnier, with sing-along chorus vocals and a slightly more Balearic house feel. The package also includes two remixes of "Dance All Night", with Yomakomba's wonderfully warm, dreamy and emotion rich deep house interpretation being our pick of the pair.
Review: Since launching as a Tirk sub-label in 2009, Nang Records has gone on to outlive its parent label and become one of the most reliable imprints in nu-disco. The label's progress has traditionally been charted by compilation series The Array, with new volumes appearing every 12 months or so. This latest installment is naturally packed with highlights, from the sparkling disco-soul of Hot Toddy's remix of Situation's Andre Esput hook-up, "Get To Know Me", and the contemporary Italo-disco throb of James Rod's "Steelerr", to the quirky Balearic bliss of Cardmoth, the synth-heavy wooziness of Deepkey, and the trippy, acid-flecked thrills of Aimes' "A View of Istanbul".
