Review: It's hard to accurately pigeonhole this second volume of Eighth Dimension's Blue Label Series. Sounding like a cross between Daft Punk making proper disco and funtime nu-disco on amphetamines, "I Need My Disco Fix" packs a lot into a short space of time - meaning it should titillate more than a few dancefloors before the summer's out. The remix package is pretty tidy, too. Look out for a pair of fine rubs from ponytail-sporting Floridian badman Sleazy McQueen - including a brilliantly out-there dub - a slick deep house re-boot from Rob Slac, and a lazy, leftfield disco re-cut from Roctiv.
Review: German funk baron Quincy gives us another fine slice of Lime Sorbet radio show with this 15 strong collection of nu funk gems. The faces are there - Basement Freaks with the butt-shaking cut n' paste party joint "City Jam" and Ursula with a retro-gaze car-chase "Tension" - but there's also refreshing presence of fringe nu funk players like Michael Devillis with the horn-hooting "Craziest Things" and Peurto Rican selector Stereo77 with his dusty, low swung bass wig out "Algeria". It's the work of a true selector, and the continuous mix simply proves Quincy can use the turntables as well as he can curate.
