Review: As the title makes clear, this action-packed collection draws on the vast archives of Brazilian edit and nu-disco imprint About Disco, with a sprinkling of unheard cuts thrown in. It will be an ongoing series (volume two is due next month), with this opening missive featuring far more hits than misses. The highlight-filled track listing features such delights as 'Cut X-1' by label founder Rafael Cancian, a slightly dubbed-out chunk of hypnotising disco edit action, the deliriously percussive peak-time release of Javi Frias's 'The Big C' (check the rubbery, low-slung bass guitar and flanged electric guitar licks), the celebratory brilliance of the Funk District's grandiose disco-funk tweak, 'Sexy Funk Machine', and a rock-solid Rafael Cancian revision of a much-loved disco anthem ('Try To Change', which breathes new life into a Gino Soccio favourite).

Review: With 17 tracks from nearly as many artists to choose from, you certainly can't fault this nu-disco collection from Rafaell Cancian's Brazilian label About Disco on the VFM front! It's hard to pick holes, too, when it comes to musical variety, with tracks ranging from the rock-tinged funk/soul vibes of Imanol's 'Improv' to the fierce acid meltdown that is Panko Samuele de Santis's 'Caldo Caldo', and calling at pretty much all stations in-between - albeit it's straight-up nu-disco jams from the likes of Jehan and The Secret Soul Society, and raw funkers like JB Boogie's 'Night Drive', that actually work best to these ears. Worth investigating for sure.

Review: About Disco's latest compilation focuses on the work of label boss Rafael Cancian, a Brazilian producer who recently made a rare appearance on Razor 'N' Tape. He begins with a deliciously warm and heady Balearic nu-disco revision of Corsican Brothers' "Beuna Vista", before offering up his own piano-powered peak-time groover, "Metaphors of Detroit", and the jaunty New Jersey deep house bump of Left & Right's "Eating The Corners". The highlights continue to appear thick and fast throughout, with our current favourites including a P-funk flavoured rework of C Da Afro, the bustling bass guitars and thrilling piano solos of "Sweet Flute" and the saucer-eyed rush of "Give Me The Moon", the adds another layer of delay-laden muscularity to Chilly's disco classic "For Your Love".

Review: Some 18 months on from the release of the label's first retrospective compilation, Brazilian imprint About Disco presents another bumper selection of floor-filling re-edits, reworks and original productions. With 23 killer cuts to choose from, the collection provides excellent value, particularly when you factor in the eclectic nature of the reworked source material. Compare and contrast, for example, the warm and sticky Afro-disco goodness of NFC and Key Sokur's "Coming From Congo", the bass-heavy disco hustle of "Hihache" by Ozzy and the kaleidoscopic, hard-spun synth-funk brilliance of Rafael Cancian's "Queen of Zanzibar". We're also huge fans of J.B Boogie's gently lolloping and exceedingly loved-up "Love To Love", though we could say the same thing about half a dozen of the other included tracks. Stellar stuff, all told.
