Review: Parisian party-starters Venice Beach have always done a neat line in sneaky scalpel jobs; in fact, before moving more into original production last year, it was their bread and butter. Here, they dig out their old editing tools and join forces with Philadelphia's DJ Apt One to lay down a couple of floor-friendly re-rubs. "Socket" is, perhaps unsurprisingly, a beefed up, dubbed-out and house style take on Shalamar's low-slung disco bomb "Right In The Socket". The original bassline, guitars, synth and vocal remain, but are joined by heavy new drums with real swing. "Money (feat DJ Bruce)", meanwhile, works the filters hard, looping up and cutting up a quirky, long-forgotten disco gem.

Review: Having seduced all and sundry with their sleek nu-disco re-edits, ever popular duo Jay & Dee (aka Venice Beach) are turning up the heat and delivering their debut LP. All the elements that have helped make their records hip are present and correct: chic bass, clap along er, claps, and excellent taste in samples. Highlights include the wayward bass-a-thon of "No More Kitch", the mid-80s freestyle soul of "High" and in particular, the rubbery sleaze-beat of "Deep Dance". Tres bien!

Review: It's been a bit quiet from the Venice Beach camp of late - the Parisian discoteers have been hibernating it appears, but with a name like theirs it's clear they only do sunkissed vibes anyway. With this latest EP of re-edits, they've made up for their absence by cramming in four newies - the loungey disco-house of "Cruisin', the sultry rubbery bass-isms of "Hot", the trippy, breaky funk loops of "It's Party" and the upbeat space disco of "Oh Oh Disco".

Review: Parisian DJ/producer duo Edit Beach have previously impressed with two volumes of hot-to-trot, dancefloor-friendly scalpel works. This third instalment in the series features more dope jams tweaked for modern dancefloors. "Slap Disco" opens proceedings with a barrage of slap bass, darting synths and low slung percussion, before "Come On" loops and filters a suitably obscure chunk of beefy mutant disco. "I Like Disco" takes a trip into loopy, compressed disco/house territory, bobbing and weaving like a crackhead trying to evade the police. Closer "Walkman", meanwhile, sounds like a Halloween cover version of French oddballs Kasso.

Review: This may not be the first full-length outing for occasional Nang contributors Venice Beach - they've previously released a few albums of re-edits - but it is their first set of original productions. Beginning with the Gauloises sporting Italo-disco chug of "No Complex", Parisian Disco is a perfect showcase for the duo's distinctive brand of synth-heavy nu-disco. Highlights include the rubbery dub disco grooves and dancing melody lines of "Medusa Lounge", the similarly throbbing party business of "Paradise" - all slap bass and big build-ups - and the dreamy nu-disco/deep house fusion of "Unique". The album's two vocal moments are pretty tidy, too, making it a quietly impressive collection of tracks.

Review: Nine months on from their last outing, cut-up merchants Venice Beach return with another collection of Various Disco Edits. The Parisian duo is in fine form, too, opening with the hazy vocals, rubbery groove and stuttering edit effects of "Move To The Groove", before savagely cutting up a sparkling boogie number in a Tiger & Woods style on "Waiting For You". "Oh Oh Disco" is a bassline-driven Salsoul rearrangement designed to suit sweaty house dancefloors, while the overwhelmingly sweet "You Got Me" and synth-heavy "Do It" (itself a radical overhaul of a Shirley Lites classic) should please those who like their disco pitched-down and trippy. They finish with "I Like Disco", a hip-shaking trip into groovy disco-house territory complete with filter effects and booming bassline.
