Review: Having gleefully flitted between labels since first popping his head above the parapet five years ago, Stephane Deschezeaux has decided the time is right to settle down. This expansive EP-come-compilation gathers together the best of his nu-disco and sample-heavy edit productions for the Springbok label he founded some years back. There's naturally plenty of dancefloor fire to be found throughout, from the chunky disco-house strut of "Deeper", and synth-heavy '80s soul re-edit business of "Prime Time", to the undulating synth bass and life-affirming pianos of "Make It Hot". Also worth checking is the twinkling, Loose Ends-meets-Onra style slow jam, "The Virtual Love", and the thrusting, hard-edged electrofunk of "87".
Rare Funk Collection by Stephane Deschezeaux brings you back to the old days with the analog bass loops, shimmering synth & lead loops, authentic drum fills, punchy drum loops, bright pianos, talkbox vocals, effects, loads of single drum hits & MIDIs
Review: Experienced French producer Stephane Deschezeaux launched The Family's Jam project earlier this year, with a fine collection of revivalist disco, boogie and P-funk instrumentals on his Springbok Records imprint. Here, he pops up on Editorial with two more inspired chunks of baggy dancefloor goodness. Opener "Let's Rock" is the killer cut, with wild analogue synth solos and P-funk squiggles stretching out over an attractive bed of warm electric bass and clipped, Chic-style disco guitars. Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee remix, lowering the tempo, quantizing the beats and making great use of Deschezeaux's tasty synth work. Bonus cut "Dance Line" explores similar territory, with bolder guitars and some cheeky horns.
Review: As the nights grow darker and the air turns chillier, the Editorial crew are at hand to make us glow with an excellent selection of glowing disco cuts from five top-notch producers. Highlights include the sea breeze and cocktails vibes of Sunner Soul's "Heaven's Rhodes", its deeper, late night cousin "We Can't Stay" and the slick, bassy shuffle of "Mossa" by Funkyard.
