Review: Classic French house mixed with golden disco in this lead cut by JR Disco, but we won't explain who's sampled and mashed because you should already know! Undeniable nevertheless. DJ Stan mixes cosmic vibes with radio effect filters, euphoric looped vocals and licks of funky guitar twangs in "Magic" while Agent Stereo hits up more housey-disco loops in a horn driven "All The Time". Three essentials for your next west end rave.
Review: Quick! Look up! Is there a glitterball twirling around majestically above your head? No? Then you're doing this summer wrong. This collection will definitely get you on the right track; curated by Germany's longest standing disco house imprint, each of these cuts will give you that all important hip-swaying, unashamed funky disco fix that you desperately require. From Roger Williams' pumping updated of Gusto's "Disco's Revenge" to Funky Star's super-polished string-slammed cover of Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way", Disco Galaxy have put together a superb collection that will befit almost any hour on the White Isle.
Review: There's something reassuringly old-fashioned and straightforward about the output of Cologne's Discogalaxy label. For the uninitiated, their stock trade is in the sort of bumpin, filter-heavy disco-house that dominated dancefloors in the '90s and early 2000s (think Cassius crossed with Joey Negro). This Miami WMC-themed collection gathers together a bumper selection of new cuts from their roster, delivering big disco loops, bigger bottom-end and even bigger breakdowns. For sheer feel good fun, Andre S's "Disco Roots" and Mr Vasovski's remix of Discogalaxy's "Darlin" stand out, though ToniTheMG's "Big Fun in Tokyo" pushes them both close.
