Review: Like many Electrique Music releases, there's something strangely pleasing about this single from the previously unknown Alcatraz. There's a stripped-back, punk-funk influenced groove (check the chunky live bassline), twittering nu-disco synths, a touch of deep house charm (via classic pianos and pads) and a breezy Spanish vocal. While simple but effective, it's also incredibly charming, too. The obligatory big name remix comes from Rodion, who laces the piano and vocals over a sturdy electro-disco groove that's broader than Broadway. Avanti also remix, delivering a rework that sounds like a grumpier take on Holy Ghost.

Review: As their name suggests, Italian duo Alien Alien make music that isn't of this world. On the title track, the bass is loose and lumbering as it moves up and down a few notes, the hissing percussive layers cloaking the arrangement in mist and all the while an indistinct vocal mutters "Myoosic". The Mekanikos remix is also unusual; the beats are slower and almost at a hip-hop pace - for a split second, they sound like Vanilla Ice's "Ice Ice Baby" on downers - and the arrangement is submerged in an acid-fried dub cloud. Idoit's remix picks up the pace and transports Alien Alien's original track into a skeletal rhythmic framework, a place where it sounds like the robots have taken over from the little green men.

Review: Andre VII is one of the leading lights in Mexico's nu-disco scene, which has flourished over the last 18 months thanks to the efforts of the Electrique Music imprint. Here, he returns to said label with a relentless burst of acid disco. Like many of the label's releases, "Discoteca Clandestina" sits somewhere between revivalist house (check those pianos and acid squiggles) and rubbery, low-slung disco (clipped guitars, heavy electric bass) - with a dash of electro-disco thrown in (Moroder-ish appreggios). Bottin provides the headline remix, dusting down his vocoder for a spot of revivalist nu-Italo. Bufi's remix - leaning more heavily on disco-funk influences - is also worth a listen.

Review: By the sounds of things, if you're of the nu-disco persuasion, Mexico is really kickin' off these days. Bufi is one of that city's leading lights as can be evidenced here. "Training Tofu" is like one of those club records from the 80s that's equal parts new wave, disco and house...proto house in other words. In Ron Hardy was around today he'd be slammin this! On the remix front we have glacial electro soul from Heko, killer, Bobby O-style, electro-disco from Andre VII and cool punk-funkisms from Avanti. Top-notch all round.

Review: Bufi is arguably one of the most productive - not to mention successful - producers in the Mexican electronic music scene. Along with others from the Electrique Music imprint, he's been responsible for defining the Mexican nu-disco sound - a kind of fuzzy blend of vintage electronics, new-wave attitude, house sassiness, indie-dance posturing and electrofunk squelch. Here he returns with another double dose of stylish goodness. "Bees" is pleasingly sparse, creating an attractive dancefloor proposition from a handful of (excellent) elements (wide-eyed Balearic melodies, synth bass, fuzzy guitar, crusty live beats and baggy vocals). "El Techno En Tu Idoma" substitutes tactile dreaminess for the hedonistic delights of a stripped-back groove, punk-funk vocals and proto-house attitude.

Michael - (6:57) 114 BPM
from $1.97
Review: For the third volume in Electrique Music's Late Night Songs series, Bufli and La Royale join forces. "Michael" is an interesting cut, mixing elements from punk funk (the low-slung bassline), disco (the unfussy percussion), garage (cut-up vocal hits and New Jersey-ish organs), boogie (twiddly, Prelude-ish synths) and nu-disco (everything else) to create a beguiling midtempo groover. The addition of some sparse, reverb-laden vocals gives the whole thing a distinctly laidback late night vibe, though there's enough oomph to proceedings to suggest a positive dancefloor response. It's arguably the strongest track in the series to date, and well worth a listen.
