Review: Here's an EP that's almost a fully-fledged supergroup in its own right, as three very well-respected producers from the contemporary disco scene - Andy Williams AKA Yam Who?and UK duo Jaegerossa - join forces, and draft in accomplished vocalist Brian Lucas on tonsil duties. What they've come up with between them is an uplifting peaktime soulful/disco houser that'll go down a storm at the likes of 51st State and Vocal Booth Weekender, while for a more authentically 70s sounding pass you can head for the Live From Philly Mix. Radio and instrumental rubs complete the package.

Review: An 18-track compilation here from Yam Who?'s uber-hip Midnight Riot label, featuring tracks from as many different artists. There aren't many A-list names on offer but the respected likes of Ivan Pica, Ken@Work, Sean Scanlan and Frank Virgilio are all represented, and given the sheer number of tracks it's going to be a very fussy disco/boogie/disco-house lover indeed who doesn't find SOMETHING to enjoy! Standouts for this writer include Pica's struttin', funk-fuelled 'I Don't Care' and Pierre-M & Ant Klent's equally funky 'Smiley Face'; also worthy of note are covers of The Clash and Terence Trent D'Arby, courtesy of Ken@Work and Lee Wilson respectively.

Review: Sub-titled 'Late Night Cruisin' Classics', Midnight Riot's first compilation dedicated to Yacht Rock & Disco is a loved-up saunter through colourful hybrids of blue-eyed soul, revivalist disco and the kind of slick and soulful nu-disco that sounds like it should be sound-tracking a sea-bound party put on by millionaire playboys. Across the compilation you'll find shiny cover versions of blue-eyed soul classics (Change Request's 'Lowdown' and DJ Mark Brickman's 'I Keep Forgettin'), deliciously downtempo excursions of the Balearic kind (the sugary street soul flex of Saucy Lady & U-Key's 'What You Won't Do For Love', Sweetooth's simply superb 'So Into You', the Ned Doheny-ish excellence of JIM's 'Whisper In The Wind'), and a really quite remarkable Sade cover (Samma's 'Sweetest Taboo'). In a word: lovely.

Review: Midnight Riot bring us a fourth collection of gospel-inspired house, disco and boogie. Mark Brickman & Yam Who's superb Vanessa Jackson-sung, disco-styled Praise Cats cover gets the ball rolling, the unmistakable tonsils of Kenny Bobian lend an authentically evangelistic feel to 'I Shall Not Be Moved', Yam Who? reappears in tandem with Brian Lucas on a cover of James Ingram's 80s soul classic 'Yah Mo' B There', prolific re-editor Jet Boot Jack gets busy on 'The Gospel According To Jack', and so it goes on... the devotional lyrics may be a bit much for some, admittedly, but if that's not an issue there's much to enjoy here.

Review: Since launching in 2018, Midnight Riot's gospel-fired "Take It To Church" compilation series has proved hugely popular, hence this third volume of re-edits, remixes and sample-heavy original productions. As usual, there's much to set the pulse racing from start to finish, with highlights including the jazz-funk fired soulful house bump of Opolopo's remix of "Follow Me" by Sense of Sound Singers, the gospel disco/disco-house fusion of Sarah Dash's "Something Inside (DJ Spen & Reelsoul Remix)", the rubbery goodness of Carlton Low's 1980s sounding "Peace, Love, Happiness", the gospel-boogie brilliance of Jack Tennis's filter-heavy "Won't You" and the gospel scalpel science that is Divine Situation's superb "Goin' On" re-edit.

Review: If you haven't been keeping up with UK disco/funk/boogie merchant Andy Williams AKA Yam Who?'s recent work then here's a chance to get up to speed, as Midnight Riot present the first volume in a two-part collection of his 2019 output. Despite the title, there's only one original production in this set, Jaegerossa collab 'This Man's In Love With You': the rest of the album comprises remixes for the likes of Michael Gray, Jaki Graham, Los Charly's Orchestra and Moussa Clarke, and suffice to say any cuts haven't yet been on heavy rotation at the likes of Horse Meat Disco and Glitterbox soon will be! Contemporary mirrorball vibes at their best.

Into Your Life (Danny Kane remix) - (5:49) 125 BPM
Review: This two-tracker from Midnight Riot has all the makings of a future disco-house anthem. It comes courtesy of label regular Natasha Kitty Katt, imprint big cheese Yam Who and vocalist Jacqui George. In its EP-opening "Gospeldelic Mix" form, "Into Your Life" is a rushing fusion of rolling house grooves, spacey synth solos, jangling gospel house pianos and a stunning lead vocal from George that should get the hairs on the back of your next leaping heavenwards. Danny Kane handles remix duties, offering a slicker and smoother interpretation that sits somewhere between nu-disco (check the squidgy new synth parts), soulful house and bouncy disco-house. Like the version that preceded it, Kane's mix is a genuine winter warmer.

Review: The Z Records crew is off to the White Isle of Ibiza and they want us to dance along at home - hence this fittingly summery selection of celebratory disco and house gems. There are naturally plenty of recent label highlights (see the cuts from Crackazat and JKriv & Adeline) and a swathe of fine tracks and revisions from boss man Joey Negro. Amongst the many highlights you'll find the celebratory disco brilliance of Bob Sinclar, Dimitri From Paris and Byron Stingily's "Love Is The Answer", the boogie/house/soul fusion of Opolopo's colourful revision of "Searching" by Roberto De Carlo and Dyanna Fearon, the soulful house sweetness of Cookie's "Best Part of Me (Unreleased Original Mix)", and Faze Action's epic, solo-laden, jazz-funk style re-make of Raven Maize classic "Forever Together".

Review: Midnight Riot's compilations are not only uniformly action-packed, but also offer great value for money. The latest edition in the imprint's ongoing "Disco Made Me Do It" series offers up no less than 25 tried-and-tested cuts to pep up your DJ sets. In keeping with the label's party-starting ethos, there's a good mix of disco-fired house cuts (see Michael Gray's "24/7 People"), revivalist disco-boogie (Qwestlife's remix of Nick Reach Up's "Dreaming"), filter-sporting boogie-house (Ladies On Mars), top-notch disco re-edits (Twism's "What I Know"), Tiger & Woods style loop jams (Motte's "Darkroom Boogie") and party-staring 21st century disco-funk ("Chance" by Rees).

Review: When it comes to blending classic disco and bumpin' peak-time house, few can match Joey Negro - a man who has been offering up disco-fied house jams since the early '90s. There are naturally plenty of his own tracks and remixes on "Put Some Disco In The House", an expansive collection of quality disco-house moments, with highlights including the rolling disco-boogie heat of "Put The Music On It (Original Disco Mix)", the chunky, walking bass-propelled "Dancing Into The Stars" (with Horse Meat Disco and Angela Johnson) and a slamming rework of Sessomato's jazz-funk flavoured "Moody". There's plenty of heat to be found elsewhere, too, with standouts including JKriv and Adeline's "Vertigo", Opolopo's boogie-tinged revision of Sylvester classic "I Need You" and the spiraling disco pump of Yam Who and Jaegerossa's "Grateful".

Review: Notching up a decade in the business is big news for any label, so congratulations must go to Yam Who's ISM label. He's decided to mark the imprint's first decade in some style via a series of compilations that highlight some of the killer nu-disco, boogie, disco, house and Balearic jams nestling in ISM's bulging back catalogue. Highlights are plentiful throughout, from the Imagination-inspired electrofunk flex of Ron Basejam's killer rework of Alena's "Changes" and the synth-heavy rush of Balearic disco maestro Pete Herbert's revision of M Roberto & Nikolay Denev's "Be Yourself", to the breezy, soul-fired dancefloor warmth of Jonathan Ryno's "Don't Know Love" and Mark E's terrifically loved-up deep house tweak of Robot 84's "Lookin' For Love".

Review: Spain's Rare Wiri label bring us their second retrospective label comp, which follows on the heels of last year's Vol 1, and just a quick glance at the artists involved - who include Ilya Santana, Rayko, The Beat Broker, Yam Who? and Ziggy Phunk - will give the initiated a pretty good idea of the quality on offer! Gazeebo's 'Soul Dance' is rooted in the deep funk of the early 70s, Phunk's 'Let It Move You' is a brass-spangled disco-house groover, Rayko's 'B-Nano' has an 80s Italo vibe, 'Whishbone' by Parissior channels late 70s Euro-disco, and so it goes on for six more very playable nu-disco bullets.

Review: This latest collaboration between Yam Who? and Jaegerossa comes in three mixes, and between them should find its way onto a range of floors. The lead Yam Who? & Jaegerossa Remix is the one for the soulful/disco house floors, with a top-drawer vocal from Ms Wallace, lavish strings and a Joey Negro-esque exuberance. The Boogie Remix, unsurprisingly, takes us into boogie territory and sports a fat, squidgy bottom end to match, but perhaps more impressive is the Retro Soul Mix, an altogether more organic-sounding pass that could easily hold its own alongside the likes of the Dap Kings et al.

Review: Midnight Riot's first celebration of gospel-fired disco and boogie, "Take It To Church", was rather special, so hopes are naturally high for this follow-up. Happily, we can confirm that Yam Who and company have once again nailed the brief. As with its predecessor, the 23-track set offers up a scintillating, soulful mixture of bumpin' gospel house (see Redsoul's superb "Born Again" and DJ Spen's bass-heavy tweak of Boorman's "God's Got It"), righteous disco-house (the Showfa, Alan Dixon, the piano-heavy stomp of Yam Who's "Tomorrow"), synth-laden gospel boogie (Dr Packer, Yam Who's tidy revision of Andre Esput's "Call Me"), breezy sing-alongs (Lux Experience) and plenty of dusty disco, electrofunk soul rearrangements (Divine Situation, Sweet Jubilees, Phil Jaimes). In other words, it's another essential collection.

Review: Following a fine retrospective of "original productions and reworks" earlier in the month, the Rare Wiri label has prepped another killer compilation to help mark the imprint's 10th birthday. This time round, boss man Rayko has gathered together some of the label's most potent re-edits. The quality threshold remains impressively high throughout, with highlights including James Rod's chugging and cheery disco-boogie shuffler "So Easy", the dreamy deep house throb of In Flagranti's loopy version of "Walking In The Rain", the sparkling saccharine soul/jazz-funk flex of Yam Who's revision of "In Your Eyes" and the pulsating Italo-disco/disco-funk fusion of Ziggy Phunk's take on "One Evening". Throw in a clutch of top-notch Rayko re-edits and the result is an essential collection of floor-focused reworks.

Review: Given the success of their previous joint single on Z Records, "Grateful", we know that Yam Who, Jacqui George and Jaegerossa are natural collaborators. Predictably, they've hit the mark again with this heavy, peak-time ready cover of Francine McGhee disco classic "Delirium". They've replicated many of the original's most potent features - think jammed-out electric piano riffs, heady vocals and wild synth solos - whilst updating it a little for house-centric contemporary dancefloors. The accompanying remixes are rather good, too. First, '80s Child and Ruff Diamond offer up a warmer, looser and breezier disco revision that adds a little more synth-heavy electrofunk flabvour, before Danny Russell and Ronald Christoph brilliantly strip the track back and emphasize the killer bassline on a superb disco-house take.

Review: If you missed any of Z Records most potent releases this year, do not fear: boss man Joey Negro has brought together all of the label's best bits on one handy, plus-sized compilation. There's another chance to savour the Escort style Brooklyn disco revivalism of J Kriv and Adeline's "Vertigo", Sean McCabe's smooth and soulful rework of Detroit Rising and Ron Trent's impeccably musically rich remix of Joey Negro's "Distorting Space Time". Synth-fired boogie goodness is also provided via a superb "Unreleased Dub" of Janet Kay's 1980s gem "Eternally Grateful" and a brilliant Joey Negro rework of the APX, while soaring, string-laden disco hits are dotted throughout the compilation. If you dig disco, house and boogie, you need this in your life.

Review: Re-edit veterans Yam Who? team up with Preston soulful/disco-house duo Jaegerossa for this EP on Dave Lee's Z Records label, with two mixes of 'Grateful' on offer. The Original is quite a happy-clappy affair, sporting a gospel chorus and a lead vocal from Jacqui George while brass and strings help to keep the energy up. The accompanying Tweaked Mix isn't hugely different, truth be told, but does strip the sound palette back a little to let the percussion shine through. Expect to be hearing this a lot in the specialist soulful house clubs for the next little while...

Review: London's Midnight Riot have a had a steady stream of releases throughout 2017, with several excellent compilations exploring the many shades of nu-disco music: such as last month's fabulous Japanese Boogie & Disco Reworks - Volume 2, Balearic Headspace - Volume 2, back in August plus Joutro Mundo presents - Brazilian Boogie & Disco Reworks - Volume Duo in the middle of the year. Here they present African Disco Juice, which as the name would suggest: has all you Nigerian and Ghanaian boogie fans sorted with this fine bunch of re-edits and similarly influenced original productions. Highlights include Reverso68 main man Pete Herbert's smooth and slinky "Agama", London lo-slung duo Psychemagik with the groovy "Carnival De Trancoso" and label staples Yam?Who with some seriously spiritual life music on the uplifting "Pure Heat". And indeed, it sure is!

Review: Spanish producer Rayko has delivered some impressive dancefloor magic courtesy of his Rare Wiri label. Ranging from re-edits to deep nu-disco and everything in between, the imprints sound is all encompassing. That philosophy is fully explored here on Retro Future Disco, bringing all kinds of disco approaches to the table. Highlights include the schmokin' 70s jazz-funk of "Hot Head Disco" by Psychemagik, the legendary Il Flagranti's rare re-edit of new wave classic "Walking In The Rain" by Flash & The Pan and the dreamy, star-crossed synth-pop of "In Your Eyes" by Yam Who? Something for everyone here.

Review: As you might extrapolate from the title, Riot In Lagos is Midnight Riot's tribute to the endearing influence of African dance music. In typical style, this is achieved through a blend of contemporary productions, sample-heavy cuts and edits of original African material. The standard is impressively high throughout, with little in the way of fluff or filler. Highlights include, but are not limited to, the inspired deep house/Afro-disco fusion of Mena & Melgado's "African Food", the rich deep house bump of Yam Who's "How We Do", the dense percussion and glistening guitars of Drop Out Orcherstra's Candido tribute, "Jin Go La", and the pitched-down, Fela-in-dub chug of Hober Mallow's "Egbe Mi O". Oh, and Jonny Walters' hypnotic Afro-boogie shuffler "Jam Bo Ree".

Highlights include the raw guitar licks and slap bass of "You're So Fine" by Chewy Rubs, the tight electro-boogie of "Robot Cafe" by Jessie Funk and the saucy space-grind of "Big In Japan" by Judge Funk.

First emerging at the turn of the century with some superb edits of poppy R n'b (anyone remember his boogie take on "Frontin" by Pharrell?) the Yam master has gone on to build quite the empire with his Midnight Riot label. The latest MR release reflects his nature, a new mix featuring 20 killer rollerskate jams from friends as well as some outright classics. Highlights include the glistening, chrome-plated funk of George Kelly's "Turn It Up", the sleek and synthy 80s jam "Living A Lie" by Freekwency and the slammin Linn drum freestyle action of "On The Upside (High Drummer edit)" by Wonkar.

Trash The Wax Vol 2 (continuous DJ mix) - (2:02:38) 117 BPM
Review: Fresh from the runaway success of his brilliant "Sunny Bigler" single, Leon Sweet has been installed as the man behind the decks for the second volume of Paper Disco's Trash The Wax series. Sweet's two-hour DJ mix is excellent, of course, but it's the unmixed tracks - a combination of unheard bits and recent Paper gems - that make this compilation essential. Expect a range of re-edits and original tracks that variously touch on nu-disco, Italo, boogie and, of course, house. Highlights are plentiful, and include a trippy slow acid version of The Balearic Beat Boy's "Waiting For Me", a typically rubbery mid-80s soul re-cit from 80s Child, and a killer, filter-heavy rework of Melba Moore by Neil Diablo.

Review: Having already carved a decent name for himself in the nu-disco universe, 80s Child (aka Danny Worrall), now turns his hand to running labels. Masterworks is his new imprint, and this eponymous compilation is its debut release. It's a total all-you-can-eat buffet of contemporary disco, featuring a whole host of familiar names. There are a whopping 23 tracks on here, some of the best include Tomas Malo's sultry grinder, "After The Rain", Yam Who?'s bouncy sunkissed disco joint "Find Out" and the digi-freestyle breaks of TV's "Love Situation".

Beaten Space Probe - "Midnight Groove" - (7:18) 118 BPM
Review: Every now and then we get a faint signal from this Beaten Space Probe, lost in the depths of the nebulous disco cosmos. It usually crackles through on our radio about once a year and is unanimously greeted with whoops of delight and much dancing on our analogue space consoles. This missive contains nine galaxian edits, presumably all peak time bangers on the hottest alien dancefloors. Highlights include the elasticated bass frenzy of "Double Lines", the Kool & The Gang redux "Don't Wanna Dance" and Fingerman's electro-boogie blaster, "Like 2 Baby". Far out!
