Wintergarten

7 AM At Wintergarten (Massimiliano Pagliara remix) - (6:33) 124 BPM

Mars Joint (Jordan Nocturne remix) - (6:04) 124 BPM
Mars Joint (SHEE remix) - (6:04) 127 BPM
Review: Fresh from outings on Stamp Records and True Romance, Monologue Records and Sterns Edits founder Ben Gomori makes his bow on House of Disco. There are two top-notch original productions to savour: the squelchy bass and even squelchier 'acid' thrills of nu-disco-tinged jack-track '7am at Wintergarten', and the similarly TB-303 laden - but altogether more spacey-sounding - electronic house bounce of 'Mars Joint'. The accompanying remix package is predictably strong, with Massimo Pagliara adding a touch of star-fall brilliance to '7am at Wintergarten', before Jordan Nocturne beefs up 'Mars Joint' in an Italo-goes-acid-house style. The SHEE Remix of the same track, meanwhile, is a tough-but-heady techno take that will appeal to many modern DJs.

Talk About This Love
Talk About This Love (original mix) - (5:46) 128 BPM
Dreams Of Being Alone (original mix) - (4:11) 117 BPM
Dreams Of Being Alone (Demuja remix) - (5:27) 124 BPM Hot
Talk About This Love (Aroop Roy remix) - (6:37) 62 BPM
Review: After notching up tracks and EPs on labels including Happiness Therapy, Toy Tonics, Kitsune and Exploited, Athlete Whippet pops up on House of Disco for the very first time. Titke track 'Talk About This Love' is a touch off-kilter and tricky to pigeonhole, with sparkling synth sounds, atmospheric pads and hazy female vocal snippets rising above a post-electro, broken house rhythm and deep sub-bass. 'Dreams of Being Alone', meanwhile, sits somewhere between dreamy, Balearic nu-disco, Orbital and downtempo electro. Demuja does a terrific job in re-imagining that track as a tactile and rubbery chunk of loved-up, retro-futurist deep house smothered in Motor City techno style synth-strings, while Arrop Roy's take on 'Talk About This Love' sounds like early Orbital mixed with hazy, lo-fi deep house.

Labyrinth
Labyrinth (original mix) - (5:47) 124 BPM
Labyrinth (Ron Basejam remix) - (6:12) 120 BPM Hot
Toecutter (original mix) - (6:39) 128 BPM
Review: Irish duo Mix & Fairbanks come good with an EP that sits right on the house/disco cusp. 'Labyrinth' itself centres around an insistent, bass-y synth that throbs away throughout, and that's married to sci-fi-esque synth strings, an indecipherable male vocal shout ("found loving", maybe?) and, towards the end, some nice rave-y keys as well. Ron Basejam's rerub drops slightly deeper and adds trippy, toppy synth squiggles that'll serve you well during those headfried small-hours excursions, while completing the package is 'Toecutter', which gets even more in-your-face with the plinky-plonk keys and has a vaguely "early Guerrilla" kinda vibe in places.

Continuamente (feat DJ Rou - Giovanni Damico remix) - (5:57) 128 BPM
Continuamente (feat DJ Rou - Hot Toddy remix) - (6:26) 120 BPM Hot
Review: Bologna, Italy-based Lorenzo Rivola, AKA D'Arabia, is best known as the boss of the Red Rooster label. Here, though, he comes to David Magnier's House Of Disco with two tracks that are served up in four mixes. 'Continuamente', in its Original form, sits on the house-disco cusp with squelchy 80s synths and a breathy male vocal that's half-sung/half-spoken (in Italian), while remixes from Giovanni Damico and Hot Toddy take us down more acidic and deeper, warmer routes, respectively. The other original, 'Sempre Meglio', is similar in style but to these ears 'Continuamente' has the better groove...

Oregano - (6:09) 125 BPM
Krispy - (5:33) 124 BPM
Caught In The Act - (5:27) 125 BPM
Review: Following a cluster of well-received singles on Gents & Dandys, Poetry in Motion and, most recently, Outplay, Cleanfield lands on House of Disco for the very first time. The Dutch producer hits the ground running with 'Sunshy', a chunky and funky slab of cowbell-laden disco house hedonism packed to the rafters with rubbery bass guitar, colourful electrofunk synth sounds, hazy chords and carnival-ready percussion, before successfully reaching for spacey synth stabs and swinging beats on broken house treat 'Oregano'. 'Krispy' is a wonderfully warming trip into percussion-rich deep house/nu-boogie fusion, while 'Caught in the Act' sees the Dutchman wrap energetic organ riffs, undulating electronics and starry chords around another infectious, mood-enhancing house groove.

Super Elevation - (6:19) 122 BPM Hot
Enduro - (6:26) 124 BPM
Review: Having made their collaborative debut as Sound Support a few months ago via a tasty EP on Internasjonal, Lars Dale and Lorenz Rhode join forces once more for a speedy sequel on House of Disco. There's plenty to enjoy throughout, from the Clavinet-happy cheeriness of opener 'Clavi On The Rocks' - a funky slab of disco/house fusion that also boasts some deliciously squelchy synths - to the analogue synth-bass driven boisterousness of similarly melodic and positive closing cut 'Enduro'. Sandwiched in between you'll find the deep synth-pop, throbbing Italo-disco fusion of 'Thesaurus Rex' - a kind of late '80s Pet Shop Boys B-side with a twist - and the synth-heavy excitement of piano-laden number 'Super Elevation'. Bravo!

Gorlami (original mix) - (6:54) 123 BPM
Park Talk (Johannes Albert's Party Talk remix) - (6:43) 124 BPM
Review: Earlier in the year, Dubliners Boots & Kats made their debut on Green Hat with 'Nitelink', an unashamedly giddy and rushing throwback to the glory days of piano house. Here they offer up something entirely different - but no less celebratory - on House of Disco, kicking off an impressive EP via the NYC freestyle-meets-Italo-disco cheeriness of 'Seratona', where shimmering synthesizer melodies leap above a vintage-sounding electronic groove. The retro-futurist feel continues across the EP, with more bold lead lines, fizzing synth sounds and arpeggio-driven grooves marking out 'Park Talk' and the giddy nu-disco rush of 'Gorlami'. Johannes Albert flips the script a little on his jacking, Italo-meets-Chicago house revision of 'Park Talk', which is every bit as alluring as the Irish duo's original mix and twice and glassy-eyed.

Positive Emotion (feat Danielle Moore) - (5:20) 120 BPM
Still We Are (IPG remix) - (6:26) 117 BPM
Review: Three years on from his latest solo outing, Crazy P's Chris Todd AKA Hot Toddy returns to House of Disco with a predictably fine EP. Our pick of a strong bunch is the tough, revivalist electrofunk flex of "Wilde Touch", where clipped guitar riffs, crunchy Clavinet lines and colourful melodies ride a rubbery bassline, though the Paper Recordings-era Crazy P deep house/disco fusion of "Still We Are" is also impressive. Speaking of Crazy P, lead singer Danielle Moore provides vocals on the Imagination-ish Brit-boogie business of "Positive Emotion", while the EP's other track, "Synthesize", is a darker and more spaced-out chunk of weighty, bassline-driven nu-boogie goodness. This digital edition also features a fine IPG rework of "Still We Are" that turns the track into a bass-heavy, spaced-out nu-disco epic.

Jiraya - (7:34) 126 BPM
Funk, Nah - (6:05) 122 BPM
Review: House of Disco welcomes a new name to the roster: debutant SHEE, an Irish producer that the label has already tipped for future greatness. The four tracks on show are certainly quietly impressive, with the Irishman offering up a varied selection that's undeniably a cut above the norm. Check first opener "Our Love", an intoxicating, spine-tingling affair that sees SHEE wrap undulating acid lines, atmospheric electronics and blissful female vocal samples around an elastic house groove, before turning your attention to the warmer, jazzier and subtly disco-tinged track that follows, "Forgotten". Title track "Jiraya" is wonderfully dreamy, colourful and vibrant, with Shee painting bold brush strokes over a tough house beat, while closing cut "Funk, Nah" adds a little mutant P-funk hustle to a chunky deep house groove.

Review: As you'd perhaps expect from an act with multiple releases on Toy Tonics, Let's Play House and Razor 'N' Tape to their name, COEO's first outing on House of Disco is really rather good. The headline attraction is undoubtedly "Habibi Dub", a wonderfully cheery, melodic and up-tempo affair full of stylistic nods to 1980s Euro-disco and NYC freestyle (Fairlight stabs, bubbly Bobby Orlando bass, chiming synthesizer riffs, delay-laden drums etc). The package also contains two tasty remixes of the tune - a typically Balearic-minded, delay-laden piano-house take from Phillip Lauer and a more tropical-sounding Mix & Fairbanks take - while one of the two bonus cuts, "Joe Armstrong Theme", sounds like the kind of track you'd hear on the soundtrack to legendary 1980s TV series Miami Vice.

Shee - "Me, You, Us" - (6:49) 121 BPM
Purple Ice - "Adeus" - (7:08) 118 BPM
Review: In sporting terms, statistics tell us that teams do better on "home turf". It seems a fitting title then for House of Disco's latest multi-artist extravaganza, which is the musical equivalent of a thumping 5-0 home win with free beers and hugs at full time. The standard is uniformly high throughout, from the bounding bounciness of LPM's rap-sampling disco-house cut "Get With It", to the impeccably warm and sun-kissed jazz-house vibes of Purple Ice's "Adeus". In between you'll find the rolling, synth-heavy warmth of Mix & Fairbanks' deliciously loved-up "Shergar's Revenge" and "Me, You, Us", a chunky sample-house number by Shee full of swirling strings, looped guitar riffs, hazy chords and righteous spoken word samples.

Oderberger - (5:37) 121 BPM Hot
Agony (feat Smokin Jones) - (7:18) 124 BPM
Review: Codie Currie's career to date has been a story of continual improvement, with each successive EP of deep house treats being a little more polished, accomplished and sun-kissed than its predecessor. He's at it again here on his first House of Disco outing. He first channels the spirit of Giorgio Moroder's Donna Summer productions on the Euro-disco chug of "Alpha Bravo", before throwing everything but the kitchen sink - think P-funk bass, wild synth solos, sweeping strings, jaunty Rhodes riffs and unfussy disco drums - at the excellent "Itomata". There's a slight Detroit Swindle vibe about the densely layered, life-affirming sample-house flex of "Oderberger", while Smokin' Jones hook-up "Agony" is an electric piano-laden deep house bumper.

Key Lime (COEO remix) - (6:00) 124 BPM
Key Lime (Harry Wolfman remix) - (7:38) 119 BPM
Review: House of Disco's latest essential missive comes from D'Arabia, a Bologna-based producer with one EP to his name (2016's Red Rooster E.P on the label of the same name). "Key Lime" sounds like a life-affirming peak-time anthem in the making, featuring a snaking saxophone solo floating above "Get A Move On" style drums and a fantastically heavy bass guitar riff. The fine remix package is headed up by organic deep house veteran Patchworks, who gives the track a suitably warm and jazzy fix-up, and Crazy P man Ron Basejam, whose tasty revision predictably moves further towards jazz-funk/deep disco fusion. If you're in the mood for a more musically expansive but bumping interpretation, COEO's take is the one to check. Harry Wolfman, after "Ulibis EP" last year on this same label, comes to conclude this remix series.

In The Genes - (8:00) 120 BPM Hot
Love Music - (6:34) 120 BPM
Love Can Set You Free - (6:15) 118 BPM
Review: Long-serving disco-house fusionist Hot Toddy (AKA Crazy P co-founder Chris Todd) is in a loved-up mood on this rather tasty three-tracker. Surprisingly, it's his first solo single for some five years, and his first for House of Disco. It's the breezy, funk-fuelled A-side "In The Genes", in which Todd expertly fuses together elements most often found in proto-house, NYC boogie, early house and disco-funk records, that stands out, though the standard naturally remains high elsewhere. "Love Music", for example, is a wonderfully sauced-eyed stroll through dreamy deep house/disco fusion, while closer "Love Can Set You Free" sits somewhere between stripped-back disco-house, percussive boogie and Idjut Boys style dub disco.

Ulibis - (9:53) 121 BPM
Review: Following a loan move to Dirt Crew, Harry Wolfman returns to longtime home House of Disco. Happily, there's much to enjoy on the producer's first outing for the London label in two years. He begins with the smiling warmth of "Epiphany 5", a rolling chunk of P-Funk-meets-disco-house fusion full of whizzing synth lines, rubbery synth bass and jammed-out keys. "Y'Sul's Ball" sees him jog into bouncy disco-funk edit territory - think sweaty, live-sounding percussion, sweet jazz-funk flourishes and hard-pressed horn lines - while "Ulbis" doffs a cap towards the likes of Chaos in the CBD and Mall Grab via a dusty, jazz-fired deep house workout.

Review: Aroop Roy is a producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist originally from the UK and now residing in Tokyo. Be prepared for one well funky and soul infused journey on "Talkin Bout Life" which is perfect to bring in the summer of 2017. Funky elements, a serious horns section and strong vocals hold up this brilliant track. It's a more straight ahead deep house affair on the rather evocative "We Together" and actually its the kind of track you could imagine Derrick May or Dixon playing out; there are definitely elements of 'hi-tech soul' in it. The Brisa remix of Talkin Bout Life" on the flip is a worthy addition also.

Devil The Difference (Future dub) - (5:33) 118 BPM
Review: Ever since their first releases on 20:20 Vision back in 2005, Art Of Tones have steadily grown into purveyors of fine deep house, and you can rest assured that you'll always receive nothing but quality from them. As of late, they've been more closely associated to London's House Of Disco Records, an imprint onto which they return to herein with three smackers, starting with the disco-laced groove that is "Devil The Difference", a soulful house joint with nothing but vibes spilling from every corner. On the flip, "Boogie With Billy" adopts a similar formula to a more electronic rhythm that recalls material from the mighty 80's imprint SAM, while the 'future dub' of "Devil The Difference" twists the original into a deeper, more heady cut for the deep hours...

Here they present the gruff EP, comprising a set of three truly accomplished recordings - the loungey shimmer of "Gruff", the filtered loop boogie of "Freebooter" and the live sounding jazz-funk of "Orchard". The best remix is Snacks' rework of the title track - all squelchy disco synths.

Review: Here's a treat for fans of Crazy P's brand of rich, disco-tinged deep house: a return to solo action from founder member Jim Baron (under his now familiar Ron Basejam alias) after a four-year absence. Predictably, he hits the ground running, expertly fusing Italo, disco and baggy deep house influences on opener "When I Hear That Music" (check the Reprise mix, too, for a sparser, chunkier version). The sample-heavy "Kag" is slow, sensual and typically delicious, while fellow Crazy P member Danielle Moore adds her distinctive vocals - ratcheted up a notch in true Prince style - on the killer nu-disco jam "You Know How To Work It". Speaking of Prince, there's more than a little of the Purple One about the synth-laden "The Fire".

Review: London-based production duo Sixth Avenue Express have been making a name for themselves of late, thanks to a series of tracks that blend midtempo nu-disco chug with elements inspired by contemporary powder house. The four tracks on this EP perfectly demonstrate this approach; there's some bass-heavy, cut-up bounce on the rolling "Clandestine", a cascade of tumbling synth melodies, piano hooks and pitched-up vocal samples on the deeper "I See", and the unusual fusion of pitched-down modern deep house vocals and sprightly electrofunk synth bass ("There's No Time"). Best of all, though, is the thrillingly melodic "My Love Is Alive", a gorgeously positive blast of wide-eyed deep house blessed with some wonderfully fluid piano playing.

His sound - a blend of stylish, jumpy deep house, '80s soul and electrofunk influences - is a perfect fit for House of Disco. Choose between the old skool flavour of "Say You Will", and the US garage-influenced, Luther Vandross sampling "More Than Enough" (for the record, the latter is our pick). Remix-wise, there's much to admire, including a piano-laden blast of Balearic sunshine in the form of Dublin Aunts' rework of "Say You Will", and a deliciously deep and tactile take on the same track from LeSale.

Review: There's been plenty of interest in Swedish combo Monitor 66 since they made their debut on House of Disco last summer with the much-played and well-loved "Triscuits". Here, they return to David Magnier's label with another four slices of woozy, picturesque, synth-heavy deep house. Their formula - twiddly synths, chunky bottom end, soft-touch production and R&B vocal samples - gets pulled in different directions, but largely remains intact throughout. The impressively melodic and wonderfully pretty "Virago" impresses most, though the bubbling nu-disco brightness of "Vitae" is arguably the most floor-friendly of the quartet. In truth, it's all good, and should earn them even greater recognition.

Review: Norwegian producer Finnebassen gives London label House Of Disco Records its eighth EP. In parts, the title track "Baby" sounds like Timbaaland snuck in the studio after a slow-mo-ish Finnebassen production session to add his trademarked telephone EQ'd ugh vocal. House Of Disco Records staple Monitor 66 supplies a slightly Daft Punk remix to the EP, which in parts, paints metal imagery of Ed Banger act Breakbot dancing on glass. Ron Basejam gets all Stevie Wonder up in his remix, while Debonair pushes things a little deeper with dubby synths that are brought back to life by a minimalist Michael Bolton sax similar to Cut Copy's "Hearts On Fire".

Review: The hype surrounding Swedish trio Monitor 66 can't have passed you by. If it has, then this debut single for House of Disco is as good a place as any to start. It pitches them as vaguely Balearic deep house heroes with a passion for cut-up R&B vocals, cheery nu-disco synths and chiming melodies. What they're doing isn't particularly new, but it is very now. Hence the hype, presumably. "Tricsuits" is pretty good, though, and comes with a range of hard-hitting remixes. There's the cascading late night deepness-meets-warehouse bass of the Dead Rose Music Company rework, a perfectly pitched tweak from PBR Streetgang, and a fantastically over-blown rework from Roberto Rodriguez. The latter is so large it's almost comically camp.

Love Glow - (8:29) 100 BPM
Night Moves - (7:15) 108 BPM
Review: Aussie adventurer Rocco Raimundo seems to get better with each release. Having previously impressed with some solid edits-not-edits on Disco Deviance and Bedmo Disco, he's now been snapped up by the House of Disco collective. On The Rocks is arguably his strongest release to date. It develops his filter-heavy, '80s-soul sampling midtempo groovery furthery. "Keep On Keepin' On" brilliantly flips a classic Whispers track, while "Go On & Fly" seductively shimmies between the speakers like a lothario on heat. "Love Glow" inserts some wide-eyed bump into proceedings, while "Night Moves" slowly moves towards musical orgasm with all the style of an E'd-up character in a Mills and Boon novel.

Daniel Solar & Andi De Luxe - "Seventh" - (6:42) 115 BPM
Debonair - "Your Love" - (5:41) 120 BPM

Review: One year in and the 'House of Disco' label continues to move from strength to strength. The label, spawned from a blog to which is shares it's name, has risen majestically to the top of an ever increasing pile of disco imprints. There is no real mystery surrounding its success, only the best productions and edits find their way onto the labels releases, carefully hand picked with due care and attention. The digital age has made owning a label no longer the pastime of millionaire playboys with a penchant for cylindrical percussive instruments, any Tom, Dick & Harry can claim to own a label these days, and often all three do... it would be churlish to suggest there are no decent digital only imprints out there, a couple of labels spring to mind, however, the discerning jock understands that any label willing to take the time, effort and risk of pressing up some vinyl must really believe in what they are doing and have a deep understanding of the scene's DJs and fans. This, the fourth release on the label entitled 'Busy Tone EP' is a great example of the complimentary A&R which is a mainstay of the label. First up we have a slo-mo looper from Scottish producer (Ali) OOFT! The track respectfully uses a synth and vocal sample from disco group 'Maze', slowly building into a real crowd pleaser. Next up we have German duo Daniel Solar & Andi De Luxe, taking time out from running their own label (Dikso) to drop the string led dance floor bomb 'Seventh'. 'Debonair' makes his second outing on the 'House of Disco' this time turning in an impeccable rework of the Garage classic 'Just How Sweet is Your Love'. And last up we have loop master 'Late Nite Tuff Guy' who brings the EP to a chugging finale, amazing strings and a hypnotic beat make this one of the highlights of the EP. Collectively; this is a great package, individually; all the tracks are must haves.

On The Latch EP
The Treatment - "Waves" - (5:11) 112 BPM Hot
Satin Jackets - "How Long Can I Wait For You" - (7:47) 109 BPM
Roberto Rodriguez - "Mustat Varjot" - (8:22) 105 BPM
Debonair - "Why" - (5:36) 110 BPM
Review: Since launching last year, disco/house website House of Disco's in-house (sorry) imprint has proved to be a rich source of atmospheric, groove-heavy slo-mo and midtempo tackle. Here they deliver four more sparkling cuts for the dancefloor. The Treatment's "Waves" builds a delightfully touchy-feeling synth-house jam around the groove from Surface's "Falling In Love", while Satin Jackets deliver a cosy, piano house-inspired nu-disco sparkler. Roberto Rodriguez opts for a more Balearic nu-disco feel on "Mustat Varjot", while Debonair turns a familiar disco staple into a rising disco/house banger - all twisted vocal samples, intricate percussion and heavy low-end bounce. Job done.

Night Light EP
Luminodisco - "Too Night" - (6:32) 111 BPM
Rocco Raimundo - "Give Me Your Love" - (9:46) 105 BPM Hot
Matthew Kyle - "Toni" - (7:05) 105 BPM
The Groovers - "All Night" - (9:25) 109 BPM
Review: The first House of Disco 12", released in the summer, set out the label's stall as a home for superior atmospheric, touchy-feely house with more than a dash of disco. This second full-length, featuring tracks from various fast-rising disco/house producers, raises the bar further. There's much to enjoy, from the comfy soul cut-ups and rock solid grooves of Matthew Kyle's "Toni" and the classic deep house blues of Luminodisco's "Too Night" to the E'd-up end of night goodness of The Groovers' "All Night". Best of all, though, is Rocco Raimundo's "Give Me Your Love", a teasing, tantalizing close dance with Luther Vandross and the girl of your dreams.

Shoes Off EP
Nicholas - "Talking About Love" - (7:02) 100 BPM Hot
Francis Inferno Orchestra - "Sun Up" - (8:00) 116 BPM
Toomy Disco - "Outstanding" - (6:32) 100 BPM
Psychemagik - "Carnaval De Trancoso" (edit) - (8:26) 114 BPM
Review: The House of Disco site launches its new label endeavour of the same name with an impeccable selection of cosmopolitan sounds from four of the contemporary disco scene's most valued selectors. The ubiquitous Nicholas kicks things off with the slinking "Talking About Love" which leans on a soul classic with aplomb, and it's matched by the most upwardly mobile number on this release from Australia's Francis Inferno Orchestra. "Sun Up" is driven by one of those incessantly energetic filtered cores and surrounded by a thumping groove and leaves you gasping for the moment the vocal hook and hats finally kick in. Up next everyone's favourite South American dwelling East European exponent of super slow disco does his thing on "Outstanding" whilst Psychemagik indulges in some carnival leaning house boom on "Carnaval De Transoco". A deft release that corners all aspects of the modern discoteria needs.
