Review: Dominating the club edits scene when it comes to sexy hot disco fire, funk, soul and broken beat jazz, Redux Inc Records keeps their five year anniversary going strong with Volume 0004! With all manner of Casa Blanco Rerubs taking in peak time Studio 54 numbers, get your taste of late-80s dancefloor pop hits from Secret Weapon next to some techier lounge time sessions by Bob Walker. Add that wall shaking bassline from NS & LG Phunky's mix to "I Need U" and here's a compilation to inspires lovers of Danny Krivit, Dave Lee and Master At Work no doubt!
Review: Robbie Blanco's Melbourne-based re-edits label serve up a third 'best of' collection in honour of their fifth birthday. To call these 're-edits', though, is perhaps to do them something of a disservice: whlle many re-editors will simply loop up the familiar parts of a much-loved classic, Redux Inc like to get a little more hands-on, to the extent that some of these tracks are really closer to covers or sample-based 'tributes'. Either way you get some familiar cuts from the likes of the Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Lonnie Liston-Smith and Jackie Moore mixed in with slightly more esoteric nuggets, all capably rejigged for maximum contemporary dancefloor appeal.
Review: Disco aficionados look no further for your fresh overdubs, edits and fire selections than this latest REDUX INC session - five epic years in the making. Packing plenty of punch in the drums - there's no denying the dancefloor designs of what's on offer here. Take the epic disco strings of "Keep Your Body Working" and "Super Lover" to the soulful diva sessions in "Real Love". For those classic jams to bring the house down it's all about "Spacer" and "Let Me Love You" (no explanation necessary) with some more abstract numbers like "Hare's Lump" and "Showtime" helping balance a slightly exotic and funk vibe next to some straight-laced classics in "Can't You See Me (Lethal Weapon mix)" and "Ten Percent (Casa Blancos Multitrack remix)". REDUX raining GOLD!
Review: Here comes a lavish disco drop from the Redux Inc stable who present this fat and loud serving of party provisions. First up is T.S. Monk's 'Candidate For Love' which gets re-rubbed by Casa Blanco for a sizzling peak time disco inferno. Then Incognito and Jocelyn Brown's perennial 'Always There' gets sent into the cosmos thanks to 'Re-Invention Of Time' version, while Lonnie Liston Smith's 'Expansions' gets turned out in style with the 'Sands Till The End Of Time mix'. Finishing with yet another banger, Sylvester's 'I Need You' gets the 'NS & LG Phunky' treatment with all the wildest hooks of the seminal disco track buffed up and placed front and centre.
