Summer Joy - (6:16) 114 BPM
Review: Two months after making his Masterworks Music comeback with an EP of tidy re-edits of rare and obscure jams, Chris Grubizna returns to Danny Worrall's popular label with a similarly minded sequel. There are six tracks to choose from, all of which have been given a slightly more metronomic swing and a bit more bottom-end weight to suit contemporary dancefloors. Highlights include rush-inducing opener "All You Need" (a rubbery revision of Barbara Roy and Ecstasy, Passion & Pain's 1981 gem 'If You Want Me"), the clavinet-heavy disco-funk chug of "Gettin' Down", the low-slung Miami Funk/disco fusion of "Miami Vice", and the jazzy disco sunshine that is closing cut "Summer Joy".

Review: Milan based Take It Easy label and party is back. This third drop comes from label owners Dirty Channels, Bugsy and DJLMP with the addition of the historical Italian dj and Paradise Pizza's label owner Memoryman aka Uovo. After their big success "Watchin Out" and "Catch Me", Dirty Channels open the EP with an Afro-influenced sample stomper followed up by an afrobeat vocal tool by DJLMP. "I Wonder" brings some crackly Detroit atmosphere by Memoryman aka Uovo. "Pomiri Dan" completes the set, percussive sample stomper by Bugsy on his first appearance on the label.

Goddess (Juan Maclean remix) - (7:31) 117 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: A warm welcome back to sometime Wonder Stories, Silhouette Music and Roam Recordings artist Jac The Disco, who here returns to the Spin On This label, which is the artists very own imprint. It's a suitably strong EP all told, with two solid 'JTD' originals being backed by similarly strong remixes. Opener 'Manglik' is a metronomic, chugging affair, with Jac The Disco peppering a throbbing, Mororder style arpeggio bassline with rising and falling synthesizer melodies and spacey electronic flourishes. Eric Duncan piles on the wide-eyed chords and synthesizer sounds on his excellent remix, while "Goddess" is a much more spacey and cosmic chunk of pulsating electronic disco. Arguably even better is Juan Maclean's accompanying rework, which gives the track a bigger, more acid-flecked feel.

Review: Neo Blues 3 announces its arrival via our most trusted Vehicle label that's been a port of call for disco edits for the world over. Turning in another four-tracks here it's spearheaded by the uber-warm kick, woofing bass and melodic percussion sequences of "Sea-Line". Harking back to the days when artists like Eddie C and Tornado Wallace were dominating the slo-mo, chugging disco sound, "Condition" adds yet another beefy boost to a Ken Roger's classic, while funkier soul and blues jams from Kings of Survival make the cut alongside that all time cinematic classic by Rodriguez's ("Sugarman").

Theus Mago & Thomass Jackson - "Sergio Ramos" - (6:52) 117 BPM
Review: Four cuts here from Mexico's Mateo Gonzalez - better known as Theus Mago - that will suit those who like their disco on the more electronic/leftfield/experimental side. Opener 'Apache Nights', for instance, owes far more to bleep techno and the early Warp sound than it does to the likes of (say) Chic or Earth Wind & Fire, while the accompanying Chicken Lips re-rub comes on like Kraftwerk jamming with Rennie Pilgrem. 'Piu Mosso' is a more straight-up homage to early 80s Euro/Italo disco and centres around an infectious, Arabic-sounding hook, while finally closer 'Sergio Ramos' could work in disco/Italo/EBM and progressive house sets alike.

Review: It would be fair to say that Leonidas Deejay has breathed new life into his Alien Disco Sugar project this year. The alias was dormant for two years, but since he dusted it down in May, the London-based Greek producer has offered up a flurry of rather good EPs. There's naturally plenty to get the blood pumping on his latest four-tracker, from the beefed-up, string-laden disco-house release of lead cut "Love Affair" - a suitably celebratory, synth bass-fuelled vocal romp that's available in Radio Edit and Extended Mix forms - to the chunkier, subtly tooled-up disco-funkiness of "Pick It Up & Get Higher", and the Clavinet-sporting, horn-heavy chug of arpeggio-driven closing cut "Saturday Night Boogie".

Review: 62 collections deep and still blazing up any party in a 1000 mile radius; Katakana deliver yet another fun and funk-fuelled package. All laced with a heavy rhythmic theme, attention to groove detail is paid throughout as we're treated to range of classic and deeply dug edits. "Galaxy" sets the tone with a sleazy strutting war cry before we're hurled into a Latin frenzy on both the sultry "Camina" and the bull-fighting "Descarga". Elsewhere "Leroy Loves Ya" brings the soulful touch and "JB World" closes with a little psychedelic mystique.

Flower Child (original mix) - (6:58) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Flower Child (instrumental mix) - (6:00) 122 BPM
Review: Although French veteran Ludovic Llorca has previously provided remixes for Z Records, "Flower Child" marks the first time one of his original productions has appeared on Dave Lee's long-serving label. While there are naturally some subtle nods towards Llorca's classic house sound in the track, it's little less than a flash-fried chunk of disco revivalism that brilliantly wraps period instrumentation - crunchy Clavinets, funk-rock style guitar licks, slap bass and sweeping strings - and a soulful lead vocal around live-sounding beats that are guaranteed to get you up and dancing. It's accompanied by a similarly impressive instrumental version, which wile a little less impactful is nevertheless a genuine aural treat.

Sould Out - "Overnight" - (5:49) 105 BPM
Review: Mexico's Deep Sense serve up a six-track EP that shows there's more than one way to go about repurposing a classic. Rather than simply looping up chunks of the original, the edits here get a little more creative - Sauco & Manuel Costela's 'Are We Ready?', for instance, takes the vocal from Fatback's 'Bus Stop' vocal and places it over a fresh (and utterly irresistible) funk backing, while on 'Last Nite' Tony Disco uses a similar trick to reinvent an InDeep classic in altogether sultrier, jazzier form. An equally well-known chanted vocal tops the brass-tastic 'Flamingo' from Hot Mood, and there are three more very playable nuggets where those came from!

Review: For his latest trick, spoonerism-loving rework maestro V (AKA sometime funk-breaks producer Valique) has decided to offer up a second selection of "Neo Blues" scalpel works. He begins by delivering a chunky, rolling revision of Ann Feebles' rock-tinged gospel-funk classic "Beware", before chugging his way through a pitched-down revision of a weighty T-Rex glam-rock classic ("Jewelry"). This is followed by EP highlight "Holis", an inspired - and suitably epic - "Afro-blues" revision of one of Nina Simone's greatest moments, and the low-slung voodoo-house hypnotism of "Mississippi Lullalby (V's Rendition)". To finish with a. flourish, the Vehicle main man then adds some elastic new drums to Otis Redding's version of "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay".

Review: Jared Philip's recent sophomore album as Jex Opolis, "Net Worth", was rightly praised for its canny combination of ear-catching synth-pop, chunky proto-house and colourful boogie revivalism. This equally as impressive partner release gathers together tracks that didn't quite make the cut and alternative mixes, all of which are up to Philip's usual high standard. Highlights include the deep, bubbly and spacey synth-pop shuffle of "Dubsystem", deliciously tough and stripped-back "Dub Mix" version of high energy/Italo-disco workout "The Bottom", and the acid-flecked glory of "Jexendirekt", a slab of late night dancefloor gold smothered in foreboding riffs, poignant chords and bustling, arpeggiated bass.

Review: For their fifth release, the Marseille-based Ravanelli Disco Club crew has turned to the combined talents of Scruscru last seen and heard on Nomada Records and Jehan (a regular contributor to the always on-point Star Creature label). Title track "Teuf De Ouf" is giddily cheery and sees the pair wrap warm Rhodes stabs and jazzy horn samples around a bustling groove that arguably owes a debt to the jazz-house era work of St Germain. Joe Corti weighs in with the obligatory remix, offering up a smoother and chunkier deep house version that makes much more use of twinkly electric piano sounds. Elsewhere, "Jive Y'all" is a warm, sample-heavy fusion of jazz-funk sounds and disco-powered house grooves, while "Lawka Chudes" is a deeper take on the pair's favoured jazzy house sound.

Review: Although he delivered two editions of his ongoing, vinyl only "Disco Dubs" re-edit series on Friends & Relations, 2019 was a relatively quiet year for Alistair Gibbs AKA Nebraska. Here he begins 2020 in fine style with his first EP for Heist Recordings in almost three years. Title track "Y'Miss Me Baby" delivers a suitably strong start and see Gibbbs wrap twinkling lead lines, rich electric piano chords, talkbox vocals and P-funk synths around a hazy jazz-funk bassline and unfussy dancefloor drums. Giovanni Damico riffs on the jazz-funk and P-funk influences further on his instrumental boogie style "Jam remix". Elsewhere, "Dip & Flip" is an all-action, filter-heavy disco-house loop jam, while "Xiao Long Bao" is a warm, deep, humid and undeniably jazzy sample-house roller tailor made for sunny afternoons.

Played by: FINGERMAN
Review: Natasha Kitty Katt joins forces with the UK's Danny Kane, best-known as one-half of Jakkin Rabbit, to produce a three-track EP for the uber-hip Midnight Riot. The lead track, 'Feel It Inside', is a sumptuous, sophisticated jam - all sensuous female vocal, wailing sax and walking bassline - that you can file under 'nu disco' or 'disco-house' as you see fit, and that comes accompanied by a matching instrumental. Completing the package is 'Melted Funk', a tuffer and fairly self-explanatory affair that for this reviewer is the EP standout, with a hefty slap bassline that recalls Nush's remix of Sara Parker's 'My Love Is Deep' from back in the day.

Review: Fran Deeper's Spanish nu-disco label come up with the goods once again! This four-tracker opens with 'Acidi Cocktail', a Moroder-esque throbber but with hints, too, of early prog, as well as the 303 flecks you're already expecting. 'Brain Chords' comes on like classic early 90s NJ garage given a 21st Century makeover (and nods to the Peech Boys to boot), while 'Do It Today', with its squelchy 303 bassline and rinky-tink pianos, pays homage to the early house sound of Chicago. The gloriously authentic-sounding 70s disco of 'With You' then closes out what is a very fine EP indeed.

Elsewhere, the reggae-tinged 'Take Us There' sounds suspiciously like a re-edit of The Police (though of what track, this reviewer couldn't tell you), while a very familiar Loleatta Holloway vocal provides the basis for 'It's The Inside' and 'Cosmic Dreaming' plays us out in surging, euphoric style... it's just a shame Ibiza's closed for the summer, eh?

Review: Still relatively new to the label game, Rollover outta Milan, Italy, follow up their Friends Against Coronavirus fundraiser compilation from earlier this year by debuting Ferrari's Nene EP. Packed with a shiney The Juan Maclean remix, Ferrari channels reinforced disco beats alongside melodic synth action, cowbell percussion and western motifs in its title-track. Funky, subdued basslines take over from the bleepy progression and space pongs of "Dopium", with "Talk" the heaviest bassline of them all, given a slightly thinned out mix by New York disco legend The Juan Maclean.

Loving You (Jive Talk remix) - (7:54) 115 BPM
Review: London's Chris Trowbridge comes to the mysterious Cheeks with a fine contemporary disco number that's served in two contrasting but complementary mixes. Head for the original if its authentically 70s-sounding vibes you're after: drenched in strings, guitar and brass, 'Loving You' could have been dropped at The Loft or Paradise Garage and no one would have batted an eyelid, while the accompanying Jive Talk Remix is a much more obviously post-house affair. So essentially, you've got one mix aimed at clubs like Horse Meat Disco, and one for places like Glitterbox... which should be enough to ensure this gets plenty of dancefloor rotation for the next month or two!

Review: "Shall we go to the disco?" asks opener 'Do The Disco', but it's a fairly rhetorical question because after hearing the four tracks here, resistance to such an idea is gonna be pretty much futile! 'Do The Disco' is a looping affair but with a sound palette that's wide-ranging enough for things not to get boring. 'No Strutting' is a more contemplative, introspective kinda cut (albeit still very struttable, despite the title), while the instrumental and fairly self-explanatory 'Pianomania' takes us down a housier route before 'The Starlight' plays us out on a more chilled note - one for the Balearic jocks.

Review: We're not quite sure who Wilson Knickit is, but we adore the re-editor, remixer and producer's tongue-in-cheek alias. Here he joins forces with pal Sir Funk for a first outing on the reliable Particle Zoo Recordings label. There's much to get the juices flowing throughout, from the driving nu-disco/funky house fusion of opener "Sunshine" and the tooled-up disco-funk flex of Indeep-sampling workout "In The Mix", to the glistening synthesizer lead lines, tactile grooves and wide-eyed wonder of Italo-influenced nu-disco gem "Fall For You". These original tracks are accompanied by a swathe of remixes, with our picks including Paper Street Soul's eyes-closed, guitar solo-laden re-imagining of "Sunshine" and Don Dayglow's tongue-in-cheek electro-disco flip of "In The Mix".

Review: We may not be able to gather to dance outdoors under a blazing sun or a blanket of stars, but there's no harm in a little musical daydreaming. That's what the latest multi-artist Ravenelli Disco Club release is all about: summery escapism that comes with a big dollop of rush-inducing disco release. Ethyene sets the tone with the colourful boogie-house fusion of "Let Love" - all twinkling synth motifs, echoing percussion hits, thickset grooves and hazy vocal samples - before Carlo raises the temperature via some jazzy deep house heaviness in the vein of Derrick Carter's "boompty" era. Over on side B, Hotmood's "Magical Flight" is a surging, string-drenched disco-house roller, while Rees' "The Way You Mood" is a tooled-up take on what sounds like a classic Philadelphia International cut.

Review: More succulent than a bucket of fried chicken and twice as heavy, Vehicle's latest "Boogie Box" - the eighth in total - is full to bursting with floor-friendly, finger-licking fun. Editor-in-chief Valique is the man at the controls, gleefully charging between chunky, bass-heavy Afrobeat goodness (the chant-along heaviness of "Like It Is"), party-hearty deep house/disco-funk fusion (the heavy house beats and toasty electric piano stabs of "Mercy", shirts-off celebratory disco ("Disco Dancer"), swinging, Hammond-rich Philly Soul (Timmy Thomas rework "Got To See You Tonight") and strobe-lit peak-time insanity (the Clavinet-sporting disco rush of "Midnight"). In other words, it's another top-notch selection of club-ready revisions from one of the hardest working editors in the scene.

Review: Emotional Rescue is proud to reissue a collection of global music band, International Noise Orchestra, presented across 4 special EPs. Founded when Berlin based musician Ulrich Hornberg mixed a newly acquired Commodore 64 with visiting Algerian drummer Jol Allouche's tablas - old culture meets new technology - the fundamentals were laid. Simple, maybe na?ve, with a curiosity to combine and inspire. Old meets new starts with their cover of Gimme Your Lovin, taking Winwood's classic and molding a white funk, pop, rock, dance hybrid, with enigmatic actor / singer Richard Strange's distinctive poetic delivery. Following Dr Sarmaz, released under INO's alias - Internationales Ger?uschorchester - the global dance vibrations begin. Feel It Flow is pure 80's dance pop, with Glynnis Thomas (Savage Progress) distinctive tones leading to the jazz fusion of Ata?, before closing with the guitar / synth / tabla rhythms of Culture Rescue Service.

Review: Four months after the release of his fine debut album "What It Is", Toy Tonics founder Matthias Modias AKA Kapote offers up fresh versions of two of the set's most potent tracks. Of most interest to many will be the included "big name" remixes of "Jaas Func Haus". Art of Tones does a bang-up job recasting the cut as a dusty chunk of rubbery jazz-house/deep house fusion, while the Sworn Virgins remix is a delay-laden late night analogue-house wiggler from the Ron Hardy school of Chicago sleaze. Best of all, though, is Rahaan's rework, which is a wonky mid-tempo fusion of acid-style electronics and spiraling disco bliss. Elsewhere, there's another chance to enjoy Modias' funk-fuelled disco workout "Delirio Italiano", as well as a stripped back, extra-percussive "Dub" mix.

Review: Vintage Music chief Sunner Soul invites us to saddle up for another gallop through the funkier and more soulful end of the peak-time disco spectrum. He begins with a chopped-up, gently housed-up bounce through Hamilton Bohannon's most famous tune (the "Start II Dance" rework "Do It All Night"), before whipping his shirt off and dancing topless through the extra-percussive orchestral disco rush of "To The Top". Elsewhere, "When The Night" is a deeper, jazzier and sunnier disco shuffler, "Society of Soul" is swirling, beefed-up take on a much-loved Matsubara classic, and "CTS Funk" is a languid, loved-up disco-soul number.

Review: Since he last featured on Furious Mandrill back in December 2019, Paul Older has taken his particular brand of humid dancefloor funk to the Discoweey and Tropical Disco labels. His return to Furious Mandrill tops the lot, with the now-established re-editor and remixer offering up chunky, floor-friendly revisions of hot-to-trot disco, funk and jazz-funk jams from both Africa and South America. Their most infectious and weighty of the four tracks is undoubtedly the inspired Afro-disco workout "Akisakisana", where positive chords and chanted vocals raise the temperature after an extra-percussive start, though the horn-heavy Brazilian disco-funk vibes of "Mais" are also deliciously addictive. Elsewhere, "Los Carmelos" is a cheery skip through sun-kissed samba-disco territory and "Monkey Funky" sees Older successfully beef up a wild, Hammond-heavy disco-funk jam.

Review: Hot on the heels of recent Isle Of Jura label compilation 'Tales Of Jura' comes a new six-track EP from label boss Jura Soundsystem AKA Kevin Griffiths himself. Griffiths cites "dub, ambient house, leftfield disco and Balearica" as influences - a contention that's readily borne out by the grooves contained herein, with the first two tracks getting things going in a dubby kinda vein before more electronic influences start to hold sway. 'Wonder Drops' is a particular stand-out, coming on like slowed-down Chi-town house heard through a sunshine haze, while 'With You' will please the leftfield/downtempo spinners and 'Movement' could find its way into progressive or minimal sets.

Review: According to the exuberant press blurb accompanying this debut release, the Bonfido Disques label has a "vision towards nostalgic exotic disco and Afro-Cosmic house remakes". In practice, that means a floor-focused mixture of chunky, housed-up, dub-flecked Afrobeat (Panama Cardoon's defiantly peak-time ready opener "Olofufu"), canny rearrangements of bouncy South African kwaito/bubblegum fusion (Fixed Angles' "Tabou"), bass-heavy jazz-house re-imaginings of Afro-Cuban jazz classics (Sirhan's superb "Le Flute"), and drum machine powered Afro-synth shufflers (the mid-80s Mediterranean flavours of "Anole" by Chico and Bianca). It all adds up to an impressive debut packed with cheery, imaginative, off-kilter edits that you'd be wise to check out.

Review: Since 2014, Frankfurt producer Shan has offered up regular missives on Running Back, with each successive EP exploring different sonic territory to its predecessor whilst retaining a strong retro-futurist feel. His latest offering is undeniably eclectic in its dancefloor-focused approach, with Shan variously turning his hand to percussion-heavy jack tracks (the sweat-soaked heaviness of "Schlagzeug"), Italo-disco/80s Euro-house fusion (opener "Stuck 4"), Bobby Orlando-style Hi-NRG ("Valentino"), mix 1980s Shep Pettibone dubs of synth-pop cuts (the rather brilliant "Holzboden") and stylish, synth-laden cosmic disco wildness (EP closing throb-job "Video 83"). As you'd expect, there's a stripped-back authenticity to the sound and production that captures the raw energy and feel of the vintage music that inspired him (albeit with the kind of low-end weight associated with heavily compressed 21st century dance music).

Review: If you know your dance music history, you'll no doubt already have recognised this EP's artwork... for those that haven't, it's a pastiche of the cover of Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love', and never has the phrase "wears its musical influences on its sleeve" been more apt! Inside you'll find four slices of hi-octane electronic disco in the classic Moroder/Cowley mode, with 'More Love!' itself blurring the lines between homage, re-edit and cover, 'Kicking In (Patrick Cowley)' continuing the theme and the surging, euphoric 'Warped Minds' sporting a gloriously cheesy vocodered vocal and coming accompanied by a FIERCE dub/beats pass from Johanz himself.

Review: Despite hailing from the frozen wilds of Siberia, Sunner Soul has always offered up music - be it re-edits, unlicensed reworks or original productions - that tends towards the warm, sunny and summery. He's at it again here, heading up a shared EP with the mysterious Sunshine Disco Club (most likely another alias of the same producer) that bristles with smiling positivity from start to finish. Of his three cuts, we're particularly enjoying the life-affirming piano solos and jazzy good-time grooves of "Skyline Boulevard" and the heady disco release of "Insurance Policy", where effects-laden orchestration clusters around a fizzing, hot-to-trot groove. The Sunshine Disco Club then takes over with the sumptuous, soft-touch 80s soul/synth-wave goodness of "Space Jam", before skipping through piano-house/80s electrofunk fusion on the rather fine "System Mode".

Review: More from Faze Action member Robin Lee's offshoot Andromeda Orchestra project, whose throbbing and forthright releases have previously joined the dots between revivalist disco and the synthesizer-driven world of Italo-disco. In its original form (track three), "Don't Stop" is an authentically produced riff on the K.I.D track of the same name rich in swooping, razor-sharp strings, Clavinet-happy disco grooves and glassy-eyed female vocals. It comes accompanied by a stellar peak-time remix from Lee's old pal Ray Mang - all layered drum fills, swirling noises and jangling piano riffs - and a spacey, beat-free ambient "Reprise". Bonus cut "Kano Line Dance", a funky mid-tempo shuffler that joins the dots between boogie, jazz-funk and P-funk, is also rather tasty.

Unhurried opener 'ARM & The Magic Tree' finds Dionigi's Italo roots showing, as does the slightly pacier 'Beside The River', while 'The Magic Jungle' is a slice of tribal deepness that'd be arguably more at home on house than disco floors. The latter then gets a funked-up remix that for this reviewer is the standout, before the EP's completed by the slo-mo, 303-dripping chug of 'Acid Tucano'.

Review: Deep house and disco collide on this four-track sampler EP from long-running French stable Robsoul. Jade Cox gets the ball rolling in funked-up disco-house fashion, looping up a female "dancing with my eyes, realise" vocal snippet atop a phat bassline and funk guitar chops. Paul Najero & Jr Quijada's 'Go Dancing' also channels late 90s filter disco - and is a surprisingly uptempo offering from a duo known for very deep grooves - before we take a left turn into warm, chunky deep house territory with Max Hebert's 'Push The Button'. Calabasa's 'Catching Wesley' then plays us out on a slightly more organic-sounding funk tip, albeit still with nice crunchy 4/4s in place to drive it along.

Here though he only manages to provide two jams, but it's quality, not quantity, right? First up we get "Night Strangers" which takes loops from Candi Staton's Bee Gees cover (Nights On Broadway) and adds an accelerated disco house tempo and subtle but funky embellishments. On the digital flip is "On Fire", a clever rework of Peggy Lee's indestructible classic, Fever. Hot stuff!

Review: Having previously plied his trade on Tonbe's Disco Fruit label, re-editor Disco Funk Spinner transfers to Katakana Edits. Providing the ongoing series' 40th release, the Tel Aviv-based producer delivers a trio of tidy reworks. "Breakfast Jam" is bold and brassy, offering a chunky, hip-wigglin' version of a lesser-celebrated Michael Jackson workout complete with crashing drum breaks, scratching, clipped guitars, bold horns and impassioned, freestyle vocals. "What's Your Name" expertly cuts up David Bowie's "Fame", emphasizing the original's killer disco-funk groove along the way, while standout "Written Letter" extends a sweet soul gem, in the process turning it into a six minute club workout.

Review: When it comes to fresh, party-starting fusions of disco, boogie, funk and soul, few contemporary artists are quite as competent as Bomb Strikes regulars Shaka Loves You. Further proof arrives in the shape of the outfit's second single of the year, "Let's Move". In its original form, the track is energetic and exciting, offering a contemporary take on Clavinet-and-horn-heavy disco-funk rich in prominent bass guitar, Nile Rodgers style guitar riffs, rolling beats and looped vocal samples from a well-known 1970s dancefloor workout. The accompanying "SLY Disco Rub" is even heavier and more energetic, delivering a percussion-laden, bass-heavy romp that sits somewhere between dub disco and disco-house.

Review: They're not yet confirmed stars of the global re-edit and rework scene, but NFC & Key Sokur are clearly producers on the rise. Here the duo makes their debut for Rare Wiri following rock-solid appearances on About Disco, Editorial, Onrika and Moiss Music Black. They begin a varied selection of subtly beefed-up, floor-friendly edits with "Japanese Funk", a bustling, bass-heavy take on a Hammond-sporting heavy funk number that will get even the most reticent of punters up and dancing. "Meu Tio" is a wonderfully summery, sun-kissed shuffle that adds new jazz-house style dancefloor chops to a Flameno-style Mediterranean number, while "The Bossa Nova Rain" is a lilting and lazy shuffle through samba-house pastures featuring new vocals from pal Azul Fourcade.

The NSFW vocal on 'Crank This MF Up!', on the other hand, is of unknown origin, but once paired with the track's lolloping funk groove is guaranteed to get booties shaking out on the floor.

'Tamanqueira' is a summery slice of Latin-infused funk, while the high life-esque 'Sekele Movement' plays us out on an Afro tip. Four very solid cuts that'll work well on more discerning floors.

Review: This tidy two-tracker marks sometime Midnight Riot, Tropical Disco and Re-Loved artist Da Lukas's first appearance on Hotmood's fast-rising Discoweey label. Check first the vibrant and funk-fuelled opener "Hot Sensation", a hot-to-trot disco-house number that utilizes ear-catching, horn, vocal, synth and bass samples from a bona-fide party-starting disco-funk jam. Energetic, groovy and ear-catching, it sounds like a peak-time anthem in the making. He changes tack on "Disco In Space", promoting the twin attractions of low-slung bass guitar and squelchy, acid-style motifs on an suitably intergalactic chunk of deep space nu-disco pleasure. While not as instantly attractive as its predecessor, it's similarly as impressive in its own way.

"One Grand Jams" consists of four tracks, all of which wrap extensive samples from disco, boogie and jazz-funk records around chunky, bass-heavy and in some cases slamming house grooves. We're particularly enjoying the insatiable electronic piano motifs, looped guitars and energetic synth-bass of "Good Time (Not A Long Time)" and the punchy, Latin-tinged disco-house rush of "Spencer", though the jaunty cheeriness of "She Knows" and the deep disco-house warmth of "Certainly" are similarly impressive.
