Napoli
Napoli (Pete Herbert remix) - (6:14) 120 BPM
Review: Redsole may be a comparative newcomer to the UK house scene (production-wise, at least) but he's made a good impression in a short space of time, while Pete Herbert's been a major underground disco player for donkey's years. So, get the latter to remix the former and you'd be expecting good things... and you'd be right! Herbert's remix of 'Napoli' is a tad slower and considerably more understated than Redsole's original but loses nothing of its dancefloor appeal, keeping those energising pianos intact and getting nice n' squelchy in the bassline department. A smooth remix that'll take the track onto classier floors.

The Gino Fontaine - "Revnorev" (Pete Herbert remix) - (7:40) 108 BPM
Review: In which UK scene stalwart Pete Herbert remixes five tracks by other people and one of his own, to predictably fine effect. The EP opens with the understated synth-y throb of 'Pourquoi', before 'Back To Bahia' takes us down a slightly housier path. 'Orange Chika' then takes a left turn into classic Balearic territory - complete, from the two minute mark, with uplifting piano riff - before the remaining three tracks play us out on a more straight-up disco tip. It's all superbly executed - as you'd expect from Herbert - but leading the charge for me is the big, bad funker that is 'Revnorev'.

Review: 'Balearic' was never meant to be a genre: originally, it was about playing all different kinds of music regardless of genre. The latest 'Cafe Del Mar' comp recently reminded us all of that and now, just to underline the point, here comes Vol 6 in Midnight Riot's 'Balearic Headspace' series, which packs in everything from Hi-Fi Sean's deep acid bubbler 'Sunshine Dub' to Amma's fine, fragile and near-bruk Sade cover, via ultra-mellow piano house from Hypnotic Lovers, spaced-out midtempo boogie from Shalvoy, 80s Europop stylings courtesy of Frank Karma and more besides... including, yes, a very 'Balearic', female-sung Steve Miller Band cover from Dominic Dawson.

South Seas - (5:28) 113 BPM
Review: It's been a while since Balearic nu-disco don Pete Herbert last released a solo single, so this surprise EP is more than welcome. The long-serving, Ibiza-based producer is in fine form from the get-go, with title track 'Far Flung' offering an excitable and joyous mix of hands-in-the-air piano riffs, dirty bass, flashes of Balearic guitar an poolside synth melodies. That track is first given the remix by Gold Suite, who turn it into a drowsy, mid-tempo Balearic soundscape, before In Flagrantri re-imagine it as a boisterous, low-slung piano-house anthem. Elsewhere, 'Dear Hector' is a retro-futurist, squelchy bass propelled Italian style deep house treat, 'Early One Evening' is an organic, Rhodes-powered chunk of colourful nu-disco loveliness, and 'South Seas' is a sparkling, sun-kissed treat.

Review: There's naturally plenty of high-grade material to be found on Jolly Jams' latest round up of previously "promo only" material from their regular vinyl missives. It's a thrill-a-minute ride through illicit underground dancefloor pastures that touches on a variety of styles, from the "Buffalo Gals"-sampling early Chicago House flex of Promo Only's "Promo Only" (track 9) and the pitched-down jazz-funk/disco-funk re-edit brilliance of Conor's "Sure Thing", to the Ron Hardy style grooves and dub delays of new wave/proto-house rework "Sake of Nothing" by Slaves of Love, via DJ Kaos's sought-after dancefloor tweak of an infamous Italo disco-era cover of Eric Clapton's "After Midnight" (here re-titled "Midnight Patrol"). The latter, now near impossible to find on vinyl, is simply essential.

Review: Following last year?s three-way collaboration with Martin Denev and Robert Owens, Pete Herbert goes it alone on his first solo single since 2016. Of the two original Herbert productions on show, it?s the sparkling, Rimini-in-the-mid-?80s vibe of ?Expresso? ? think druggy, Italo-disco style arpeggio bass, warehouse-friendly synth riffs and mind-altering drum machine cowbells ? that?s really floating our boat. That said, the guitar-flecked cheeriness of Balearic disco workout ?No Big Thing?, which contains some killer dream house style piano solos, is also alluring. Bottin emphasizes the track?s dreamier elements on a loved-up electro revision just crying out for sunset plays, while Yam Who throws the kitchen sink at ?Expresso? with predictably impressive results.

Review: Given that Pete Herbert has done more than most to define the synth-heavy nu-disco sound, it's pleasing to see that he's finally got round to recording a debut solo album. Made in the Shade naturally encapsulates all that's good about Herbert's work - think colourful synthesizers, loved-up pianos, dreamy chords, rich analogue synth-bass, Italo-disco style arpeggio lines, disco cowbells and an saucer-eyed Balearic mindset - while delivering a string of tracks that sound as good slouched on the sofa at home as they do while dancing in the sunshine. Highlights come thick and fast, from the classic Italo-house surge of "Washed Up" and T-Coy-does-nu-disco cheeriness of "Night Boat", to the soul-flecked tingle of Robert Owens hook-up "Pass Me By" and groovy, acid-flecked deepness of proto-house shuffler "Time".

Review: This is big: a collaboration between Balearic nu-disc heavyweight Pete Herbert and "the voice of house" himself, Robert Owens. In its original form, "Pass Me By" is bubbly and attractive, with Owens' adding deep, soulful and emotion-rich vocals to a sparkling, synth-heavy backing track that effortlessly joins the dots between freestyle, proto-house and Italo-disco. The equally impressive remix package is headed up by two fine reworks from Daniele Baldelli and DJ Rocca: a chugging, undulating cosmic disco vocal version and a spaced-out, groove-driven Dub that hits home hard despite the lack of Owens' full vocal. Elsewhere, Aussie adventurer Dr Packer gives it an electrofunk flavoured house makeover and Pete Herbert turns in a fluid, Balearic-inspired rework full of heady synth lines and tumbling pianos.

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".

Perfecto - (6:53) 110 BPM
Review: The third installment of the Paradise Row series reunites regular studio pals Dicky Trisco and Pete Herbert, following the latter's solo missive earlier in the year. Naturally, the three tracks offer cheery, floor-friendly explorations of many of the duo's well-known influences - think Italo-disco, proto-house, dub disco, Balearic and boogie - and it's hard to find fault with any of them. "I Think I Can Feel Something", which sounds like a long lost Paul Simpson production with added freestyle and Balearic disco influences, is arguably the highlight, though the Italo/electrofunk fusion of "Perfecto", and Michael style early Chicago house vibes of "Dance To Love" aren't far behind.

Review: DJ Kaos seems to keep Jolly Jams' most "hush-hush" material for the label's occasional Promo Only series. There's plenty to get excited about on this latest digital installment. For example, you'll struggle to find a more on-point early Chicago house edit than Baffopizza's sterling, gospel-tinged effort - all sweaty, jackin' beats, chunky bass and swirling vocal samples - though Kaos's own effort, a deliciously druggy, basement-bothering affair - pushes it close. Pete Herbert's contribution bubbles away impressively via waves of acid and dubbed-out synth lines, while Leo Mas and Fabrice's remix of Conor's contribution effortlessly flits between cut-up electro drums and blasts of rubbery, punk-funk grooves.

If this doesn't have your crowd grinning like lunatics then there's something critically wrong. Dicky Trisco adds even more euphoria to the fire with a piano line so strong you could be convinced it's 1990 and we're in Italy. Heavenly.

Review: Last year, the crew behind Brazil's well-loved Mareh festival decided to launch their own label. Like their 2014 debut EP, which boasted cuts from Eric Duncan and Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco, Mareh Drops is another all-star affair. The Revenge kicks things off with the sparse, string-laden tech-house bump of "Strings of Fife", before Berlin-based Canadian Eddie C delivers the quietly impressive "Take Me Or Leave Me", a delay-laden deep house shuffler with sun-kissed disco influences. Pete Herbert goes solo on the deliciously bright, breezy and sun-drenched Balearic disco groover "El Bigotes", before Max Essa goes deeper into Balearic territory with the sweet synthesizer arpeggios, bubbling beats and dreamy pads of "Night Measure".

Paradise Row Volume One
Hanging Out - (7:51) 115 BPM
Machine 16 - (6:22) 116 BPM Hot
Aperol Sunset - (5:06) 110 BPM
Review: Long-term collaborators Pete Herbert and Dicky Trisco once again join forces, this time for a trio of cuts that mark the first instalment of the Paradise Row series. There's naturally much to admire, from the breezy, Latin-influenced keys, Balearic disco grooves and killer vocal samples of "Hanging Out" (think T-Coy meets Reverso 68), to the eyes-closed warmth, tumbling acoustic guitars and chugging groove of closer "Aperol Sunset". Arguably best of all, though, is "Machine 16", a thrillingly upbeat cut that peppers a chunky Balearic disco groove with killer pianos and sweet, life-affirming guitar licks. If cheery, feelgood disco is your thing, you need Paradise Row Volume 1 in your life.

Eric Duncan - "Nerve Control" - (6:16) 122 BPM
Pete Herbert & Dicky Trisco - "Disco De Chocolate" - (7:09) 118 BPM Hot
Review: Brand new nu-disco brand from Brazil, Mareh have already established themselves as sonic connoisseurs with their annual festivals, long before this debut release. NYC don Duncan takes the lead with a stately Italo-referencing groover that builds and builds with analogue insistency, twisting, turning and evolving throughout. Pete Herbert and Dicky Trisco follow on a much funkier flex. A nagging synth hook, loopy guitars and a pertinent sense of disco insistency are all tied together with a bold swing and plenty of party panache. Mareh mercy!

Slave To It - (5:43) 120 BPM
Say What You Want (Dicky Trisco version) - (5:44) 119 BPM
Review: Given that he's one of the owners of Maxi Discs - alongside longtime pal and sometime production partner Dicky Trisco - it's perhaps surprising that this is Pete Herbert's first solo single for the label. Amazingly, it's also his first EP under his own name for three years. Naturally, there's plenty to enjoy, from the bouncy nu-disco bass, Italo riffs and rolling disco percussion of "Gang Related", to the Reverso 68 style Balearic nu-disco of "Say What You Want" and bold, anthemic, piano-laden electrofunk rinse-out "Slave To It". Dicky Trisco reworks "Say What You Want", emphasizing the original's Italo-influenced melodies while giving the track a greater dub disco flex.

Body Working - (5:20) 121 BPM
Spaced - (5:12) 136 BPM
Review: A Juno Download exclusive here, collecting some rare Pete Herbert edits previously only available on a CD release from 2010, showcasing his fantastic taste and tweaking prowess. "Tonight's The Night" is a decidedly upbeat cosmic number with Italo leanings, filled with delayed piano and synth breakdowns, sounding most like his work as Reverso 68. "At Claudia's", meanwhile, has a much more Mediterranean vibe, with a siesta tempo and a breathy female spoken word vocal and flanged guitars. "Body Working" is another fast moving Italo oddity, with a hi-NRG arpeggio and motivational robo vocals. The highlight however is "Spaced", an edit of Sheila and Black Devotion's Nile Rodgers produced "Spacer". It draws out the incredible piano refrain and insistent guitar lick, holding back the vocal until the final third, when the track explodes into life.
