Review: Editorial are here once again to serve up some of that sweet disco goodness with their 4 track release, Body Music. 'Slo Fusion' combines jazz-funk and boogie influences, then tops the lot with a Stingily-esque falsetto vocal, 'Aruban Nights' is a laidback n' lounge-y sunshine groove, 'Summer Love' is a sultry, sexy female-vocalled affair with more of a late 70s feel, while completing the package is 'Spirit Power', which is more uptempo and nudges closer to nu-jazz/bruk beat territory.
Review: Mexican funk and disco producer Hot Mood (AKA Guillermo Gonzalez) comes to Canada's Editorial Records on this split EP with label bosses Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee, with a little remix justice from Thatmanmonkz thrown in. The latter's rub of 'Shades Of Blue', with its Gil Scott-Heron 'H20gate' vocal, would sit just as happily in our deep house section, EW&DDD's 'Cantina' is a fat-assed slab of slo-mo, flute-sprinkled funk (and the pick of the EP for this reviewer), while there's - unsurprisingly - a Latin funk feel to Hotmood's two contributions. Contemporary funk/disco at its least cheesy, and hence most satisfying!
Review: Something a little different from Editorial here, as NGC, Key Sokur and Alexny join forces to deliver three heady slabs of Discosmic goodness. They begin in fine fashion with 'Discosmic', where French spoken word vocals, tight organ licks and flanged guitars ride a hazy disco-house groove, before joining the dots between immersive deep house and sparkling nu-disco on the swirling, sunset-ready treat that is 'High People'. Best of all though is accurately titled closing cut 'Summer Breeze', a collaboration with Azul Fourcade that adds sweet, jazz-style vocals to a colourful, mid-tempo backing track rich in glistening piano motifs, elongated organ chords and swooping synth-strings.
Review: If you've not come across Palafico Honey before, there's a good reason: it's a brand-new project from Eleanor Beale, a little-known - but clearly talented - audio-visual artist based in London. 'Bigger Dreaming' is really rather good, with Beale adding classy, jazz-inflected lead vocals to a warming jazz-funk-meets-disco backing track rich in jaunty electric piano chords, jazz guitar flourishes and rubbery, boogie style bass. Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee re-imagine the cut as a more low-slung slab of P-funk flavoured disco-funk, before Funk District successfully turns it into a bouncy chunk of disco-house cheeriness. As debut singles go, it's a bit of a doozy.
Review: We've become accustomed to the Editorial label offering up expansive EPs packed to the rafters with tasty edits and reworks, but even by the imprint's high standards Raw Funk is rather special. It begins with a bumpin' chunk of hazy and excitable sample house courtesy of Cody Currie (the brilliant 'Aquarian Girl') and ends with some slow-motion, downtempo disco sweetness from Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee ('Slippin'); in between, you'll find a fine rearrangement of an organ-laden chunk of sweaty dancefloor soul (the Funk District's 'An Evening With El Diablo'), some slap-bass-sporting disco-funk (Matt Hughes' 'Get Down'), and a righteous trip into driving disco territory (the Owl's low-slung 'Funky Feelin').
Review: If you're in need of some musical positivity in your life, we'd heartily recommend this rushing collection of feel-good gems from Editorial regulars Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee. Naturally, there's tons to get you up and dancing in your living room. Opener "Layover Blues" brilliantly peppers a sludgy, Italo-disco style groove with horn-heavy samples from a disco-funk gem, samples which Nebraska then uses to offer up a thrillingly low-slung disco-house remix. Ed and Dee go in that direction themselves on the deep house/disco warmth of "The Need Inside", while "Dat Funk" is a fine revision of a lolloping funk-soul shuffler rich in punchy sax lines and groovy bass. They simmer things down successfully on closing cut "Lemonade", a bass and break-driven chunk of slo-mo goodness.
Review: There are plenty of re-editors and rework merchants with larger discographies than Editorial regulars Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee, though few who deliver quite as consistently. Further proof arrives via their first outing of 2020, "Soul Shakers", a four-track collection of reworks based around breathing new life into dusty soul jams. The sweatiest and more obviously peak-time focused cut is undoubtedly the dense and energy-packed percussion workout "Spaced Drumz" (and yes, it lives up to the title), though celebratory disco-soul rework "Make Some Love" will also get hearts pounding out on the dancefloor. Of the EP's two slower and chuggier moments, it's the wonderfully hazy opener "Do The Thang" that's our pick.
Review: Gather round: Editorial is revealing the contents of the mythical "Disco Scrolls", a sacred document for all those who kneel at the altar of the Church of Nu-Disco. It contains eight audio commandments, all of which should be listened to intently. Salvation comes first via the fluid nu-disco positivity of Bica's "Endless Rhodes" and the disco-house grooves of the soulful and musically expansive "Because I'm Black" by Old Chap. Elsewhere, you'll find righteous testimony from Hotmood (via the deep disco-funk of "Only Your Mom Calls Me Daddy"), The Owl (the boisterous horns and filter tricks of "Shake"), Frank Virgilio (the lolloping party disco-funk of "Out Here"), Labour Of Love (the bassline-driven percussion-fest that is "Good Feelin") and NFC and Key Sokur (the rubbery and down-low disco fun of "City Affair").
Review: Since first tickling our fancy with a killer EP on Better Listen, Chevals has gone on to release similarly impressive outings on Whiskey Disco, Kolour Ltd and Masterworks Music. Here the fast-rising French producer makes his Editorial bow with another fine four-track salvo of beefed-up, house style re-edits. He hits the ground running with "Left Behind", a glassy-eyed loop jam that layers slightly sped-up soul/R&B vocals onto a mid-tempo '80s soul groove. Elsewhere, he delivers a house style revision of a summery jazz-funk number on "I Of Love", while EP closer "Time" is sumptuous, bass-heavy, heady and loved-up in the best possible way.
Review: Grab the Malaria pills and sun cream: sometime Moiss Musdic man Levantine is taking us on a tropical disco excursion. As you'd expect, it's a humid and sweaty affair. He breaks us in gently via the jaunty synth bass and rainbow synths of "Cosmic Love", before urging is to whip off our shirts to dance to the walking bassline, restless cowbells, sharp strings and hard-wired guitar riffs of "Liquid Disco". "Desire" sees the experienced re-editor craftily reworking a piano-heavy chunk of sleazy, leftfield disco, while "Il Rumore" is a fuzzy but rolling revision of a relatively recent revivalist Afro-disco cut. A happy finish is providing via the filter-heavy disco-house pump of swirling closing cut "Starvue".
Review: As the powerhouse pair behind many of Editorial and Chopshop's greatest hits, Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee needs little introduction. They begin their latest must-check re-edit release with "Arctic Boogie", a cheery chunk of mid-tempo electrofunk blessed with rubbery synth bass and filtered horn lines, before joining the dots between baggy deep house dreaminess and low-slung disco goodness on "Orbit"and the even slicker "About The Music". EP highlight "Heatwave" is a snappy rearrangement of a solo-sporting chunk of sun-kissed boogie positivity, while closing cut "Neptune Rising" expertly joins the dots between oven-hot jazz-funk, head-nodding hip-hop beats and groovy pitched down disco.
Review: Label-hopping producer and re-editor Massimo Vanoni has enjoyed a relatively quiet year thus far, with a low-key outing on Atop his only release of note. This EP on Editorial should thrust him back into the spotlight though, as it really is rather good. Its' most headline-grabbing feature is the sedate, slo-mo tempos he's decided to operate at. Sure, there is one 120 BPM workout - the acid-speckled, jazz guitar-laden disco/deep house fusion of sun-kissed stunner "House Revenge" - but everything else hovers around the 100 BPM mark. On standout "Feel It", Vanoni works wonders with a chugging groove, dub delays and snippets from a seriously sweet cut, while "On Your Loving" is a superb sunset-ready groover rich in elastic slap bass, vintage electronics and dreamy chords.
Review: Hold tight for more boozy dancefloor excess from the Editorial crew, a collective of re-editors whose musical output is always worth a listen. The seven-track missive begins with a chunk of electric piano-laden samba/jazz-funk magic courtesy of Nik M, before sometime Hot Digits and Midnight Riot man Frank Virgillio offers a more piano and percussion-laden chunk of sun-kissed Brazilian magic. Labor of Love gets the disco juices flowing via the cowbell-heavy shuffle of disco funker "Like I Do", The Funk District reach for the Clavinets on hazy roller "Baby Got It" and I Gemin smothers a tasty groove in liquid synths and deep house flourishes on "Oh Baby". To round things off, C Da Afro rearranges a warm and groovy electrofunk jam and Rica lays down some colourful nu-disco deepness.
Review: More multi-artist action from the effervescent Editorial label, a stable that has consistently delivered some of the strongest re-edits, remixes and reworks of the last few years. The imprint's most storied outfit, Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee, kick things off with the lolloping, piano-heavy disco positivity of "Spirit Power" - where sampled female speech provides an interesting focal point - while slow disco stalwart Duff Disco delivers the head-nodding, toe-tapping warm-up warmth of "Burning Hot". Elsewhere, Hotmood ups the heat and tempo on the P-funk-fired stomp of "I Was Born in Mexico" and Alex Zuiev lightly beefs up a swirling peak-time disco jam on EP standout "I Feel Funky".
Review: Matt Hughes is no stranger to Editorial, having previously contributed cuts to a number of the label's hugely popular multi-artist edit EPs. This, though, is his first solo salvo for the long-running rework imprint. He begins by turning a breezy, laidback and jazzy disco cut into a fine mid-tempo house head-nodder ("Looper Love"), before giving his interpretation of a slap-bass heavy party workout on the horn-sporting goodness of "Shufflin". You'll find more killer bass guitar and Nile Rodgers style riffs on the jazzy and groovy "Slow Tape", while "Supermarket Music" is a fizzing, P-funk-flecked revision of a jazz-funk/boogie cut that should get all the jazz dancers throwing shapes faster than you can say "Herbie Hancock ate my hamster".
Review: Former Glenview Records scalpel fiend Buzz Compass has appeared on Editorial releases countless times over the last few years, though this is the first time the imprint has granted him the honour of a full solo EP. He subsequently delivers, slowly sashaying between the jazz-guitar-laden Balearic/deep house fusion of "Aqua", the picturesque, glassy-eyed flutter of "Oh Baby", the warm and enveloping, LTJ Style disco-house hypnotism of "To Be Loved", the electric piano-sporting deep house breeze of "Joy" and the chunky, bass-heavy flex of filter house workout "Izy" (seemingly a rework of a chant-along Brazilian jam). Excellent stuff, all told.
Review: Relative newcomers Difusion return with four more re-edits here. They've dug deep enough for the original source material to remain a mystery, but 'I Can Feel It' is a smooth, lounge-y soul cut with a male vocal, 'Can I Do It' is a rawer funk jam centred around the "Can I do it? Can y'all do it? All together now" vocal chant and 'Afrocal' is a mid-paced rolling groove with a female lead vocal, Afro-flavoured BVs and lavish orchestration, while finally 'Askin' You' is a dusty, scratchy, jazzy affair with a speeded-up "and I'm askin' you" female vocal and some fine work on the ivories.
Review: Canadian twosome Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee return to Editorial with some "Party Favors". The headline attraction is arguably another outing for Greg Wilson's forgotten 2011 revision of "Flip Da Beat", a delay-laden mid-tempo roller rich in filtered bass, echoing vocal samples, crispy disco drums and super-sweet disco and hip-hop samples. There's plenty to set the pulse racing elsewhere, too. "Stellar Dub" is a fine rework of a punchy Brazilian disco-funk jam that wisely focuses on the killer groove and ear-catching horn lines, while "Name of Luv" sees them straighten out and beef-up a grandiose disco number full of swirling strings, busy Clavinet lines and sugary soul vocals.
Review: By now, we should all know what to expect from Editorial's multi-artist edit missives, namely refined party-starting fodder that puts the needs of dancefloors first and foremost. That's certainly what Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee serve up on the bustling, bass-heavy Afro-funk style madness of the first of five "Dope Licks" on the long running label's latest EP. Hotmood's string-powered disco-funk bubbler "Worldwide" also hits the heights thanks to punchy horns and rolling, beefed-up beats, while Levantine's "Right On" is a rolling and relaxed exercise in filter-sporting disco-house grooves. Elsewhere, Melon Bomb's "Sweet Jam" makes merry with rubbery beats, jazzy bass guitar, dubbed-out vocal snippets and clipped funk guitars, while Alex Zuiev's "Get Lifted" offers the perfect balance between Idjuts style dub disco madness and toe-tipping disco-house chunkiness.
Review: For what it's worth, we believe that Ethyene was one of the underground success stories of 2017. This EP of deep house-tinged disco reworks for Editorial - his first release of 2018 when it appeared on vinyl a month or two back - follows inspired outings on Kolour LTD and Moonrise Hill Material. Turn first to the lolloping, loved-up sweetness of "Rains Over Occident", where glistening jazz guitars and toasty chords recline over a laidback house groove, before strapping yourself in for the wild disco ride that is '80s soul-meets-jazz funk bubbler "Walkin' In The Sunshine". Elsewhere, "Free To Give" joins the dots between loved-up modern soul and jazzy deep house, while closer "Solitary Sex" is a Rhodes-heavy broken beat number.
Review: Following a superb outing on Whiskey Disco earlier in the year, Guillermo "Hotmood" Gonzalez returns to Editorial with his first EP for the label in almost two years. First up you'll find "Don't Care", a rolling and summery chunk of string-laden disco warmth with added house chops, before Gonzalez brilliantly reworks a hazy (un-credited) disco-funk classic by putting extra emphasis on the track's mazy saxophone solos. More disco sweetness is provided in the form of the head-in-the-clouds dancefloor bliss of "I Can Be You", before the producer doffs a cap to Tiger and Woods on the loopy Latin disco/deep house fusion of closer "You Can't Play That".
Review: In our eyes, prolific re-editors and party-starting mash-up merchants Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee have always been "top of the chops". The Editorial imprint thinks this, too, hence serving up this expansive collection of some of the duo's finest reworks. There are gems aplenty to be unearthed throughout, from the loved-up, delay-laden mid-tempo dreaminess of sultry opener "Summer Love" and the 80s soul-with-filters lusciousness of "Boogie Flight", to the gentle house drums and disco-boogie horns of funk-fuelled favourite "Feel Good Jam". There's more straight-up celebratory disco to be found elsewhere on the compilation, too, with the parping horns and soaring strings of "People's Groove" and the low-slung flex of "Like U Do" standing out.
Review: The Editorial bandwagon keeps on rolling, pushing on through the night like a long distance trucker high on extra-strong coffee and legal stimulants. As usual, there's a veritable skip-load of peak-time goodness to be found on the label's latest collection of reworks and re-edits. We're particularly enjoying the mazy jazz-funk synths and elastic slap-bass action of HotMood's lolloping "Hey You" and the rolling, Blaxploitation fuelled disco-house business of Ed Wizard and Disco Double D's "Diesel Power", though the sleazy boogie swirl of C Da Afro's "Intimate Disco Stories" and the horn-heavy, slo-mo disco-funk bounce of Tonbe's "It's Not Over" also set our pulses racing.
Review: Sounds like a crew, actually a singular chap: Dave Allison's Ed Wizard & Disco Double D project returns with five more slippery soul shakers. "Red Hot" is all about the salubrious bassline wriggles while "We Gonna Shake" instructs on much more of a tight groove, heads-down level and "The Showdown" serves you with seriously slinky talkbox beef. Deeper again we find disco strings and hypnotising percussion on "Diggin' The Scene" before sparking up and dusting off the air piano for "Jazz Wave". Get your freak on.
Review: On this latest must-have missive, the Editorial crew has assembled an all-star cast of re-editors and house-loving disco rework merchants. Thrillingly, it contains a now rare outing from slo-mo specialist Duff Disco, whose atmospheric, beatdown style chugger "Always on My Mind" is undoubtedly one of the best things he's released in years. Props, too, to Irish disco-house specialists Get Down Edits, who weigh in with the warm and summery grooves of "Hey (What's Happening)". Elsewhere, Buzz Compass subtly beefs up and filters out a sleazy disco favourite on the constantly rising "U Deserve It", while Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee get the party started in their inimitable style via a touch of disco/hip-hop fusion ("Moonlite").
Review: Keep on moving... A mantra for the dancefloor, a mantra for a life, a mantra for the professor-level choppers and dicers at Editorial. Switching up the slate from last month's Slo Mo Disco from label lynchpins Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee comes this uptempo collection of star-lit disco house. Lavish organic instrumentation, loose grooves and insatiable energy running throughout; highlights include the juicy slapbass of Difusion's "You Got Everything I Want" the classic sample flip of Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee's "Daydreamz", the powerful p-funk fusion on The Funk District's "Do Yo Thang" and the sultriness and high hip Chi-town struts of Sunner Soul's "We Make Love". Get on the move...
Review: Elusive duo Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee have been delighting dancefloors around the globe since 2009. With their signature brand of chunky disco dubs infused with hip-hop flavours and a slow mo house feel. They have had numerous releases on great labels around the globe like Whiskey Disco , Disco Deviance, Paper & more in addition to having their tracks played by the likes of Soul Clap and Derrick Carter. Not to mention being remixed by legend Greg Wilson, so these guys definitely have credentials. With no plans to slow down , they now drop the "Slo-Mo Disco" LP on the mighty Editorial Records this summer. A perfect way to light up any daytime disco pool party, BBQ or dancefloor!
Review: When it comes to crafting slinky but floor-friendly reworks, St Petersburg-based rework merchants Gradient Logic has a pretty impressive track record. Their latest EP, Shy Shy Hush Hush, marks their first appearance on Editorial, a re-edit imprint that boasts a far higher profile than some of the outlets they've released on. They begin with the chopped-up, loop-house treat that is the title track, before breathing new life into a synth-pop era electrofunk jam on the slick but sturdy "Please Come Back". Speaking of "Spasen Train", you'll struggle to find a more punchy, choppy and relentlessly sweaty remake of everyone's favourite subway-themed NYC boogie duo, while "Heave Ho" sees them brilliantly rearrange a bouncy, piano-laden 1980s gem in a Tiger and Woods style.
Review: Leading re-edit imprint Editorial continues to deliver the goods, almost eight years to the day since the release of its debut release. Come To The Jam marks the first collaborative endeavour from Italian producers DJ Spranga and Massimo Vanoni. Opting for a warm, jazzy and groovy sound throughout - think jazz-funk brought up to date, with natural nods towards disco, soul and funk - the duo barely puts a foot wrong throughout. Highlights wise, we're really enjoying the clipped guitars, mazy electric piano solos and lolloping grooves of "What You What" and the revised disco-jazz of "Come to the Jam", though the break-driven disco-funk shuffle of "Jungle Beat" and Afro-cosmic throb of "Love Groove" are equally as impressive.
Review: When the sun's out, you can depend on Editorial to get their musical guns out. Now the weather's improved and guess what? Here come the Editorial crew with this sizzling collection of five sunkissed edits - all geared to hanging out and having fun in the Great Outdoors. Highlights include the plucky, guitar echoes, Fender Rhodes shimmers and rolling bass of "Tricity" by Matt Hughes, the poolside cocktail house vibes of "Disco Shake" by C Da Afro and the touchy-feely Balearic headnodder "Damn Your Eyes" by Old Chap.
Review: There's a notable inclusion in the list of producers contributing to Editorial's latest red-hot collection of floor-friendly reworks. Vastly experienced house producer Art of Tones turns re-editor on "Bootyshaker", a sublime, loose-limbed interpretation of a Red Greg-championed disco-soul favourite that benefits greatly from just the right amount of low-end house pressure. Similar accolades could be placed on the gently bouncy disco-funk shuffle of Matt Hughes' electric piano and jazz guitar-laden "Walk The Chalk", or for that matter the deep, spacey and radiator-warm electrofunk bliss of Special Q's talkbox-sporting "Lost in You". Elsewhere, Sellouts goes all "boom-bap" on the freshly baked instrumental hip-hop head-nodder "Ain't No Thang", while Barry Closer gets tactile and glassy-eyed on the Balearic boogie of "Closer".
Review: The latest missive from the Editorial camp is something of a summery treat, with a sextet of producers taking it turns to lay down warm and inviting dancefloor treats, First up is Matt Hughes, whose "Lonestar" joins the dots between eyes-closed deep house and rich, bass-heavy Balearic disco. Hotmood lays down a chunk of horn-heavy, party-hearty disco house, while Massimo Vanoni marinades a sweet, sun-kissed disco cut in several gallons of tasty rum punch. Elsewhere, Sunner Soul works the filters hard on the low-slung disco house shuffler "Good Parts", I Gemin gets all sweaty and loopy on "Disco Fevah", and Andy Buchan does a great job reinventing an 80s synth-pop cut as a saucer-eyed slab of peak-time goodness.
Review: Orbiting the Sun, just near Venus, is a little known planet called Closed Paradise. When not residing there, this disco-chic producer resides in the more earthly domain of France. Editorial have scored a real coup here by signing him up for this sizzling four-track outing that covers thick, syrupy disco-house ("Bad Girl"), majestic ecstasy-house ("Asymmetric"), thumping French Touch boogie ("Dice") and the utterly sublime synth-moods of "Filtered Light". C'est Bon!
Review: We're not sure what Hotmood got up to on his recent Rhodes Trip, but whatever it was, it was good enough to result in his latest EP on the mighty Editorial. Boasting four tracks, the EP features the freshest sounds from nu-disco world capital Mexico. "Can You Dig It" opens with smooth, jazzy and Latin-tinged poolside boogie, "Magic Touch" follows up with some looped saxy -fizz, whilst "Check This Out Yo!" veers into funky/disco house territory and "Soul Energy" wraps things up with a heady Fender-Rhodes-lead groover. Slick stuff.
Review: Editorial regulars Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee join forces once more, this time to celebrate the joys of drunkenly dancing in a pub's backyard. There's a definite alfresco looseness to electric piano-laden jazz-funk opener "Basement Jazz", while the groovy and hypnotic "Disco Thang" - which boasts a sneaky nod or two to Yellow Magic Orchestra - may cause a few dancers to spill their pint. Elsewhere, a P-funk classic gets turned into a shuffling house number on "Down With The Groove", the duo drops some more low-slung, string-laden disco on "Come Back Baby", and "Get Down" is a riotous fusion of rubbery disco-boogie grooves, punchy horns, and funk-fuelled freestyle vocals.
Review: Editorial love slo-mo disco grooves and their latest comp, Funk Ride, is packed full them. Matt Hughes kicks off the Balearic party with elasticated basslines, bongos and poolside sunset vibes on "Biodigital Jazz", Joseph Terruel, ups the tempo a fraction for the dreamy boogie of "Basics" and Woodhead whips out the brass section and tight guitar licks for "Hopeless Situation". Elsewhere Napoleon drops the fuzzy funk loops on the hazy boogie jam "Little Sailor" whilst we drift away on the blue-sky chords of Old Chap's "I've Got The Groovy Touch" and Feza closes with the compressed live funk anthem "Discotizier".
Review: The Editorial label like their tunes slow and groovy, and here we have their 15th comp of such laconic boogie numbers. There are four varieties of disco flavours to try here beginning with Tony Tee's dubbed out disco-house jam, "Can I Get Def", before progressing on to Woodhead's shimmering poolside workout "Cinnamon" the fastest tune on here. From there it's back down to the raunchy slap-bass loops of "West Garda Lake" by Stereo 12 and winding up nicely with the warm Mediterranean breeze of "You're A Dream" by Arequipa Ensemble.
Review: The best thing about spring is all the new stuff starts to arrive. Editorial have taken this idea quite literately and have rounded up a whole bunch of fresh new faces and tunes. There are nine fine jams contained on Spring Thing comp, some of the (many) highlights include the sweet and tender boogie-pop of "Good 4 You" by the artfully-punned Serge Gamesbourg, the throbbing bass loops of the sublime "Closer & Closer" and the mesmerising fusion of punk-funk bass and sunshine keyboard melodies on "Brighter" by Dagfest.
Review: Editorial's latest EP comes from Lemon Mint, a Mexico City-based nu-disco/deep house fusionist who has previously released material on Midnight Riot and Hotbox. The four tracks here offer a neat summary of his trademark sound. "Spiral" is a dreamy, head-in-the-clouds chugger with just a whisper of acid to push things forwards, while "The Rubdown" effortlessly joins the dots between the sweaty, loop-heavy style of Tiger & Woods, and Lemon Mint's own deep and hypnotic explorations. Elsewhere, "Tornado" makes merry with sun-bright nu-disco chords, rolling beats and superb electric guitar riffs, while "Messages" sees the Mexican deliver a distinctive rework of a 1960s soul gem.
Review: Whilst others are only just getting back to speed, re-edit chiefs Editorial have already been back delivering a packed schedule of choice jams since January. The heat doesn't let up yet either with this new multi-artist mini comp. Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee start proceedings with the uplifting clavinet boogie of "Peoples Groove" and Matt Hughes' "Sunshine" takes what sounds like a subtle O'Jays sample and gives it a laid back disco sheen. Elsewhere The Owl's "Pimp Talk" provides perfect evening cocktails by the pool vibes and Rahaan closes the show with the chic electro-boogie of "Fine Feelings".
Review: Editorial are back everyone: look out! Our favourite edits label now presents us with The Funk District, who is Fernando Mendoza based out of Cancun, Mexico. There's some smooth and soulful disco edited for your convenience on "Groove Me", any guesses who he's taken the razor to on this one? On "Give It To You" we're loving the sultry vibes he's accentuating from the original and "Summer Breeze" takes us back for another glorious ride on the soul train assisted by some nice filtered and loopy build ups that'd make even The Noodleman stand up and notice!
Review: Editorial are back with another mini compilation: hallelujah! It's more on the deeper tip than the disco one this time around, but it's all the same quality you expect from this camp as always! Jus Tadi's dreamy and lush deep house vibes come courtesy of "Peaches", Matt Hughes serves up some deep down and dirty funk on "Do Your Thing", plus there's some chilled-out balearic business covered also by P SOL on "Come On". A Salsoul sounding re-edit by Serge Gamesbourg (!) on "Burning" is a worthy addition and some sexy deep house to close out proceedings courtesy of Long Island Sound and The Owl respectively. All killer no filler!
