Mr. Thruout - "Thrubet" (original mix) - (6:37) 119 BPM
Review: In the midst of the current craze for all things synth-y and Italo, it somewhat ironically falls to Italian label Sound Exhibitions to bring us a six-track EP that ploughs a more 'traditional' disco furrow. Two contributions from Monsieur Van Pratt have a jazz-funkish feel, 'Rap In Blues' busts out the ominous stabs from 'The Message', Luciano FM & Stradivarious take us into soulful disco-house territory (think Sunburst Band or Opolopo), while finally the two tracks from Mr Thruout have a slightly deeper funk/soul vibe about them, 'Adapter' sporting a half-spoken male vocal while jazzy fem vox adorn 'Thrubet'.

Review: The latest musical journey from London label The Disco Express is driven by Monsieur Von Pratt and C.Da Afro, two producers and remixers who have made a big impression within the re-edit scene over the last few years. The four cuts here are all edits, albeit ones that boast subtle musical additions and chunky, tooled-up beats. MVP steps up first with two tidy workouts: the elastic slap-bass, woozy synths, rolling beats and hazy female vocals of 'Funk Force', and the more traditional disco-funk re-edit vibes of the excitable 'Shoot Your Shot'. C Da Afro, meanwhile, successfully beefs up a jazz-funk flavoured disco number full of sweet scat vocals and jaunty piano stabs ('Orange Juice'), before offering up extended, filter-smothered breakdowns and bouncy boogie-house beats on the string-drenched sugariness of 'Let's Do It'.

Review: Following the success of the label's first digital-only compilation, Lock and Load, Act of Sedition boss Bully Boy has decided to repeat the exercise. Like its predecessor, Perfect Pitch largely sidesteps re-edits featured on physical releases, instead delivering a bumper selection of previously unheard reworks. Those who prefer their edits gently beefed up with the addition of club-ready beats will find plenty to enjoy, from DJ Steef's tweak of Van Morrison classic 'Into The Mystic' and DJ Laurel's chunky revision of disco-funk slammer 'Peace Pipe', to Sucka Tommy's bustling rework of Paul Simon's 'Me and Julio Down By The School Yard' and C Da Afro's disco bumper 'The Sunset Groove'. If tape-style rearrangements are more your thing, we'd heartily recommend the edits from Al Kent and SanFranDisko.

Named in honour of their radio show and regular parties in Glasgow, Joints & Jams offers up a hugely entertaining (and largely floor-friendly) mixture of funk-fuelled hip-hop (Bastien Keb, Fort Knox Five, Andy Cooper), skanking reggae (The Nextmen and Gentlemen's Dub Club sing-along 'Done It Again'), flash-fried funk breaks (the Allergies), tropical goodness (DJ Nu-Mark's hook-up with Quantic), and various fusions of disco, boogie and funk (see the cuts from Kraak & Smaak, X-Ray Ted, Pablo & Shoey and Shaka Loves You themselves). The result is a brilliantly mixed-up collection of tried-and-tested dancefloor bombs.

Review: Just in time for the seasonal change we're reminded by Super Spicy that it's still warm with Spicy Stew Vol1! Namely DaFunkah's "Olhos Coloridos" and Igor Gonya's "Bazaar", The Move adds some sweltering stringed disco to "Is This Rain" spun back out of control by The Velvet Stripes' "I Can't Hold You". Rayko surfs in with some Miami heat in the summery cool "Winners" alongside the Miami night drives synths of Monsieur Van Pratt's "The Hero". Find some old school vocal club tracks from Disco86 and something hi-NRG from Robert Ouimet & Dave Godin's "Fry My Love".

Talk About Funky - (6:25) 120 BPM
   
That Boogie - (6:35) 122 BPM
Review: Mexican producer Jesus Rodriguez, better known as Monsieur Van Pratt, comes to Alpaca Edits with three reworkings of vintage dancefloor cuts, though the originals in this instance remain sadly unidentified. 'Me & You' is a brass-tastic cut with a near-falsetto male "you give me so much pleasure" vocal, if that helps, while 'Talk About Funky' sounds like it's been hewn from the rock of 70s Afro-funk, and closer 'That Boogie' has a distinctly Fatback Band-ish feel. The latter takes the gold for this reviewer, with 'Me & You' a close second, but all three are plenty playable.

1984 (Sauco remix) - (6:14) 120 BPM
Review: Last month saw Monsieur Van Pratt aka Jesus Rodriguez deliver a remix for Drop Out Orchestra's top 10 Disco hit "Tunga Stenar". Rodriguez is a self-taught musician who mixes the grooves from the late '70s disco, '80s funk and the catchy rhythm of jazz. He is back with his solo debut on Denmark's Discoholics Anonymous Recordings. "1984" sees the Ciudad De Mexico based producer deliver an uplifting and neon-lit nu-disco belter that sounds straight out of its namesake's year. This is supported by Sauco's remix which is more like a dub mix and incorporates some roaring diva vocals for added effect.

Review: With 23 tracks to choose from, there's no faulting the value for money offered by this summer compilation from London's Slightly Transformed label. Such an extensive tracklist also offers plenty of scope for stylistic variety, with tracks ranging from laidback, groovesome boogie/soul jams like opener 'What Are We Gonna Do' to the mellow Balearic haze of 'Summer In The City', via the strident 80s attitude of 'Edgy', the looping filter disco of 'Something About Love', the authentic-sounding Blaxploitation funk of 'Mac And Carly Go Uptown', the Zapp/Cameo-isms of 'Firebabe' and even a bossa nova cover of Bill Withers. Serve poolside, accompanied by several mojitos, for maximum impact!

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".

Review: Since launching in 2017, Toulon-based imprint Act of Sedition has become renowned for the quality of its re-edit releases, many of which appear on rarely seen seven-inch "double-packs". This time they're trying something a little different by gathering together a swathe of previously unheard reworks on a must-check digital compilation. It's a fine set that touches on a number of interconnected styles and sounds, from loved-up Balearic nu-disco (Nu Pilgrims "Soul Shadow (Withers Shakedown)") and tooled-up Afro-disco heaviness (Belabouche's bouncy "Hey Africa"), to rushing revisions of stone cold disco classics (Monsieur Von Pratt's "Why", Reece Johnson's stomping "Piece of Mind") and head-nodding, toe-tapping soul (Mr Doris's "Hercules").

Review: Spain's Rare Wiri serve up four disco/nu-disco cuts that aren't actually as Latin-leaning as the title may lead you to believe. Label boss Rayko and Fran Deeper join forces on a cover of The Steve Miller Band's classic 'Abracadabra' that has a few flamenco guitar flourishes at the start, sure, and the panpipes that grace Hotmood's 'Rapture' (NB: not the Blondie track) hint at South/Central American influences, but elsewhere Cuz Electric's 'Got The Feeling' is a sleazy electric disco-funker with an early 80s feel while Monsieur Von Pratt's 'Tonight' is sheer late 70s NYC exuberance. So check for this whether you're a Latin lover or not!

Review: Nine highly enjoyable slices of contemporary funk and disco here courtesy of Fran Deeper's Mallorca-based Spa In Disco. Some of the artists are well-known, at least in the appropriate circles (C Da Afro, Funk District, Monsieur Van Pratt); some are less so, while there's one genuine first-gen survivor in the form of Spiteri, a legendary Venezuelan player who gave London's 70s disco scene a dose of Latin flava. Don't expect too much in the way of radical reinvention - these grooves are so faithful to the sounds of the 70s that we had to check a few of 'em weren't actually 40 years old! - but the standard throughout is impeccable.

Review: This is a suitably solid start to the year from re-editor, remixer and producer Monsieur Von Pratt, an artist that rose to prominence within the disco scene in 2019. There's something particularly pleasing about opener "Be Real", which sees him successfully rework an obscure disco-boogie number rich in wavy group vocals, colourful synthesizer lines, cut-glass strings and toasty bass. There's plenty to enjoy elsewhere on the EP though, from the hot-to-trot early '80s disco bustle of "Distant Lover", to the percussion-laden instrumental disco headiness of "Let Your Body Shake" and the celebratory rush of fine closing cut "Loving You".

Call Of The Heart - (6:12) 120 BPM
   
Natureza - (5:25) 118 BPM
Review: Not so long ago, 80s boogie/electrofunk was the genre that time forgot, seen as a kind of weird phase in-between disco and house. The last 10 years or so, though, have seen the sound re-evaluated and re-appreciated, a phenomenon of which this three-tracker from the amusingly named Monsieur Van Pratt is but the latest example. So don your shiny Mr Byrite suit and white socks, and lose yourself in the sultry, soulful charms of 'Good Luv', the synthy electrofunk of 'Call Of The Heart' and the summery, Latin-inflected 'Natureza' - shoulder pads and hi-top fade optional, but highly recommended.

Review: You're only five years old once, so why not celebrate in style? And here Warrington lad Danny Worrall's disco and re-edits label Masterworks Music do just that, with an anniversary collection packing a whopping 50 back catalogue nuggets. You'll excuse us the full track-by-track, then, but suffice to say that this is the label that helped launch the careers of Dr Packer and Natasha Kitty Katt, both of whom feature here, and with names like Ziggy Phunk, Rayko, Alkalino, Chuggin' Edits and Fabiolous Barker also on bill, you should already have a pretty good idea what to expect. Classy stuff all round, and a great VFM package - here's to five more years!

Groove It - (7:14) 120 BPM
   
All Night Long - (6:35) 117 BPM
Review: If you're gonna give your EP a title like that, you'd damn well better HAVE 'da funk' to back it up. Thankfully, Mexican producer Van Pratt most assuredly does. 'Nothing But Funk' itself kicks off the EP, opening with a full-phat bassline before ushering in an 80s boogie-style vocal and some VERY 80s-sounding synth chords. That sets the tone for the rest of the EP, with 'Groove It' marrying white-socked 80s soul vibes to a liquid-y funk geetar line while 'All Night Long' is a straight-up boogie number built for cruising along Ocean Drive with the top pulled down and your Wayfarers on, baby...

Review: Going by the volume of tracks on show, it would be fair to say that Masterworks Music's "Bag of Tricks" is not a little handbag, but more like a Mary Poppins style bottomless carpetbag. The label's latest rummage through its seemingly endless contents has been a successful one, with the 20 showcased cuts including a wealth of fine fusions of disco, house, boogie, electro and 80s soul. It's uniformly dancefloor-focused, with highlights including the Afro-house/disco-tech fusion of JB Dizzy, the driving, spaced-out disco-house grooves of Mike Woods, the loose-limbed, off-the-wall edits of Chewy Rubs, the sweet disco-soul bounce of RocknRolla Soundsystem, the delay-laden synth sing-along styles of Rayko and the hot-to-trot brilliance of Downunder Disco.

Review: More from the wonderfully named Monsieur Von Pratt, a popular re-editor who recently impressed via rework EPs on Tropical Disco and Mandrill Cuts. He begins his first Masterworks Music outing with the P-funk influenced power-pop/heavy electrofunk vibes of "The Real Thing", before giddily dancing towards smoother boogie territory on EP highlight "The One". Those looking for tougher, more raw-sounding flavours should check the 80s soul/electrofunk fusion of glassy-eyed peak-time workout "Come On Feel Your Love", while tasty closing cut "Mi Amor" sees our scalpel-sporting hero successfully turn his attention to an early 80s tropical disco workout rich in Chic guitars, heavy percussion, rubbery bass and sleazy synths.
