Review: Alena is a London boogie singer who has found a kindred creative spirit in ISM labelboss Yam Who?. Following the success of Changes, they're back with more original material, with "U Used To Hold Me" being a beautifully authentic slice of mid '80s Brit-synth-funk: crisp, digital and very, very catchy. Inkswel mischievously warps the tune into twisted dysfunctional punk-funk, but '80s Child goes a bit more commercial with his take on the already poppy "Let Me The One".

Review: East London vocalist Alena gets the remix treatment on Yam Who?'s ISM by a serious who's who of the current musical landscape and there's so much to choose from! Crazy P's James Baron aka Ron Basejam gets stuck in a couple of times, giving his nu-disco midas touch to "Changes" and "Learn To Get By". Label boss himself Yam Who? is in fine form, giving a sweet boogie injection to "Use To Hold Me" and a deep nu-disco flavour to the afore mentioned "Changes" featuring a cheeky sample of Pepe Braddock's "Deep Burnt. Elsewhere Aussie disco hero Inkswel gives "Use To Hold Me" another killer re-rub which gets a deep and dirty funk makeover and Planet Jumper delve into a cosmic disco vibe on their retro flavoured take of "Hard Times".

Review: East London based singer Alena gets the remix treatment and in stylish fashion. Her track "Hard Times" gets done over twice. Firstly the "Autocycle Remix" is all hands in the air with big piano rolls for the peak time dance floor to compliment her gorgeous vocals. The Ourra remix of "Don't You Know" is a proper nu-disco rendition just like the following "Yam Who? Original Mix" the real highlights here. They're reminiscent of the sounds on Futureboogie and Freerange et al. Not a bad thing at all! The Leebo Freeman remix of "Use 2 Hold Me" being more reminiscent of Tuff City Kids with its chunky rolling arpeggio and generally analogue soul vibes. Now that's a compliment!

Review: Despite sounding like a long lost '80s buddy movie, the Baker Brothers are a veteran live funk and soul collective from London. In anticipation of the band's forthcoming new album "Hear No Evil", ISM have delivered this remix package and it's a winner. "Love's Atonement" is turned into laid back poolside disco funk by 78 Edits, whilst the poppy Jamiroquai-isms of "Hill Climb" are tweaked twice by Yambee, first being into accelerated cosmic funk and secondly dubbed into a fizzy, hi-hat driven headnodder.

Review: Following Ron Basejam's excellent Deep & Meaningless album comes this extra special remix package, crammed full of goodies from some of the most respected names in disco. As the production brains behind Crazy P, Jim Baron has crafted some sublime midtempo disco boogie beats in his day, and his new Ron Basejam project has been just as rewarding. For this set of mixes, ISM label boss Yam Who teams up with Ashley Beedle to smooth out "For The People, By The People" into a spacey slow-grooving jam, with drums that bring the old-school boogie flavour right up to date.

The Revenge gets the chance to string out the sublime and languid "No Jose" over nine epic minutes, building on a bedrock of shakers and the faintest taste of bass to give a masterclass in minimal arrangements. Crazy P's own Chris Todd takes on "Spirit" and makes the popping bassline (similar to Harvey Mason's "Groovin' You") the focus of the track - working perfectly with the laidback and sultry vocals. His Dubbed Out mix takes the track even deeper, adding superb congas and arranging the track to give it a strong and driving momentum. Killer Whale's Italo mix of "Is The Word" rounds things up perfectly - yet again another perfect midtempo beat with some crackling sine-synths that sparkle over the top. A great companion release to an already much-loved album, the remixes really do justice to the material.

Review: Ron Basejam is the alter ego of keyboardist James Baron of Crazy P and Secret Stealth fame. Here he drops his superb full album for Yam Who's ISM label. Fans of Ron include the likes of Gilles Peterson (who put the charismatic ''Into My Life'' on the recent Brownswood Bubblers 5 compilation), DJ Harvey, Dam Funk, The Revenge and Greg Wilson, and it's easy to see why. The album trips through musical genres effortlessly taking elements of the past and fusing them with modern day production techniques. Ron's influences are all represented here, with touches of deep house, disco and melancholic dreamscapes set against jazzual synth funk-fired treatments and vocal sample snippet production. Definitely one to check.

Review: 'Big' Daddy Kane is veteran of the Midnight Riot label and Timmy Vegas is from the soulful house scene (Z Records etc). Together the disco fever is scorching hot. Throwing vocals powerhouse Jacqui George into the mix and the results are off the hook. "Feeling Me" is an infectious homage to the American soul and funk world of the early 80s, totally classy. Yam Who? also appears, remixing the track into the 21st century by adding some tougher house undercarriage to the chassis. Alan Dixon stretches the tune to over seven minutes, concentrating on the top line melodies and a rolling bassline.

Review: British producer Birdee has been quietly doing his thing since the turn of the decade, delivering a string of underground nu-disco hits on a variety of labels. Here he returns to ISM three months after his last outing (the fine Love EP), this time with a trio of ear-pleasing Balearic boogie productions. Vocalist Chloe Amber guest stars on title track "Give Into Love", a sumptuous, sun-kissed fusion of lilting deep house dreaminess, sparkling '80s soul sounds and hazy disco warmth. With its jammed-out analogue synth riffs, fizzing electronics and elastic bass guitar parts, "Tonite" is an essential instrumental workout, while "Dinamo" alternates between sumptuous melodiousness and stripped-back, bass-driven disco-funk heaviness.

Review: Birdee: aka the Los Angeles dwelling Italian Marcello De Angelis is back, with some killer boogie-house disco flavours on a new ISM Records EP. "Meant To Be" is a funky and feel good deep disco joint, featuring vocal dynamite Alena Herel. Then there is Yam Who? dropping the remix business and in the process inject the track with some added dancefloor dynamics: for later in the night when any serious DJ needs to turn the heat up a notch or two.

Review: Swiss-Italian studio boffin Bobby Eclecto is a bit of a crate digger, by all accounts, and on "Party Animals" you can tell. The original version comes laden with vintage electrofunk synths, audible nods to tongue-in-cheek '80s Italo and the sort of drum machine work that used to be the hallmark of Shep Pettibone. Remix wise, there are three alternate cuts to enjoy; a synthy, nu-disco influenced dose of contemporary powder house from Rubinskee, a blast of new wave revivalism from Chris Massey, and a superb synth wig-out - blessed, of course, with more musicality than you can shake a stick at - from label bosses Yam Who?

Review: ISM boss Yam Who has high hopes for Bubblegum, a previously unheard "red hot disco" outfit based at Fossil Studios in Hackney. There's certainly plenty of promise on this debut single, with both original tracks hitting the proverbial sweet spot. "Hold On" is a synth-laden mid-tempo delight, with hazy vocals and a lolloping, head-nodding groove. The looser, more up-tempo "On & On" is, if anything, even better, with punchy horns and clipped guitar riffs adding additional energy to the classic disco groove. Label boss Yam Who's remix of the latter - built around his own rubbery synths and a toughened-up groove - is also superb.

Review: Cork-based nine-piece The Cosmic Funk Band are well known to funk enthusiasts, having toured the UK (and beyond) extensively over the last decade. Here, they make their debut for Yam Who's ISM Records with an EP of remixes of tracks previously featured on self-released singles. Jay-Ru provides two impressive remixes; a warm, baggy, organic deep house interpretation of "Dynamite", and a super-smooth, impeccably deep take on "Our Time". Elsewhere, Yam Who and Goldboy each provide a version of "House of Sand". The later's take is woozy and evocative, sitting somewhere between acid-flecked deep house and chiming nu-disco. Predictably, it's the label boss who steals the show, turning the same track into a grandiose chunk of warm, immersive and richly musical electrofunk.

Review: De Fantastiske To are Ravi and Marius from Oslo, Norway who make feel good deep house vibes for fans of Arto Mwambe or Kollektiv Turmstrasse - like on the dreamy and melodic groove of "God Fallelse". The track gets a couple of kick ass remixes, such as by the likes of Yam Who? whose nu-disco odyssey ticks all the right boxes. But they save the best for last on the emotive high tech soul of "Ut Av Det BlA" which is the perfect accompaniment for a midnight drive down a Detroit freeway.

Review: ISM chief Yam Who has long been a fan of Mexican disco, so it's little surprise to see him releasing this excellent single from local producer Tony Disco and horn player Ramisax. In its original form, "Papaya Surf" is something of a breezy delight; a warm, humid, languid saunter through deep house-tinged Balearic disco pastures full of live instrumentation. The remix package is rather excellent, too. Nelue goes further towards atmospheric nu-disco on his shuffling effort, while Colour Vision delivers a sun-kissed, samba-tinged take that turns the original into an eyes-closed anthem. Best of all, though, is Mazel Top's version, which laces those horns and a bold piano line over a bubbling backing track that sits somewhere between nu-disco and tech-house.

Review: Raw Sugar is a seasoned veteran of the nu-disco/edit circuit, having released gems on a whole host of the most happening labels in this field including Editorial, Gazeebo and Chopshop. Now he arrives on ISM with this seriously impressive three-tracker. "Tell Me" is all glistening retro synth soul remixed with a cool '80s Danceteria style vibe by Yam Who, whilst Barrientos takes it in a '90s shuffley house-pop direction. "Sunroof Top" keeps it '90s with retro organ stabs, but it's the moody electro disco of "You Need This" that's got us pulling serious shapes on the dancefloor.

Review: The Drive is an interesting proposition. Unearthed by ISM boss Yam Who in London, their original tracks blend boogie, P-funk and synth-pop influences, analogue synths and live instrumentations, and vocals that sit somewhere between Prince and Plantlife. The two original tracks here, "Diamond In The Rough" and "Born Again", are both breezy and attractive, hinting at even greater things to come in future. Wisely, these radio-friendly originals are backed by a couple of solid remixes; a stomping, soulful nu-disco tweak of "Diamond in the Rough" by Yam Who, and a sparkling deep house-goes-nu-disco interpretation of "Born Again" by Autocycle.

Review: Melbourne's Benny Badge proved himself to be something of a master of synth-laden, soul-flecked boogie revivalism some years ago. Confirmation of his mastery of the genre came earlier this year, with the release of the Seal The Deal album earlier this year. Here, a selection of cuts from that inspired set get the remix treatment. There's much to admire, from the sharp synths and rolling electrofunk grooves of Ruf Dug's reinterpretation of "Midnight Rise", to the Boogie Cartel's superb NYC synth dub style rework of the same track. Badge himself provides a superb deep Dub of "Living a Lie", while label boss Yam Who steals the show with a fantastic, Loose Ends style tweak of "Something Else On Your Mind".

Aussie producer Benny Badge (Freekwency) clearly finds the sound of Walford's E20 nightclub circa 1983 the most amazing thing ever, and frankly, who can blame him? Essex soul boy grooves dripping in glistening white-socks-synths and dry ice beats are the order of the day with highlights including the sleazy grind of "Friend Or Freek", the suggestively-titled "Midnight Rise" and the simply sublime "Just For Two". Dope.

Review: ISM has high hopes for this debut EP from male model-turned-DJ Leebo Freeman. It's not hard to see why. The Salford-based producer's trademark sound sits somewhere between cloudy and dreamy, with chugging, chunky grooves and looped up disco and boogie samples mixed with heady chords and warming, sun-kissed melodies. It's a blend that regularly produces playable material, from the hazy, slo-mo bump of "Sunset 'N' Swang" and instrumental Balearic pop of "Midnight Cap", to the deliciously bright and immersive "Cocktail Haze", and cut-up disco fluidity of "Hot Ways". His debut album, due soon on On The Fruit Records, should be worth checking.

Review: Yam Who's ISM label has high expectations of this bold and brassy EP of soaring nu-disco jams from Romanian rising stars Gemini Brothers. It's not hard to see why. While "Jeckermich" - an unflinchingly positive and rush-inducing fusion of traditional disco elements and nu-disco synths - is good, it's Pete Herbert's two gargantuan remixes that really excite. They're the sort of thing that will have even normally shy dancers grasping for the lasers as if their lives depend on it. There's a touch of leftfield disco/cosmic rock madness in the shape of Electric Brother collaboration "Blues Ventura" - all twiddly synths, jazz drums, wonky electronics and fiddly guitar solos - which comes backed by a fantastic Idjut Boys style dub disco remix from The Pushamann.

Review: Having previously released on sister label Midnight Riot, Bristol-based nu-disco sort Goldboy is given a chance to play his wares on ISM. He duly delivers a trio of original productions, from the spacey chords, woozy grooves and rich bass of "Stomach Funk", to the bold, Rhodes-laden deep house disco throb of "Demolish Disco", via the breezy, late night goodness of "Thru The Nite". Each track is accompanied by a suitably solid remix, with Ex Friendy's dense, post-punk influenced dub disco remake of "Demolish Disco" standing head and shoulders above the rest. That said, BG Baarregaard's deliciously Balearic revision of "Stomach Funk" is pretty darn tasty.

Review: In the past Romanian producer Heion (aka Razvan Ghenciu) has dabbled in both disco and house. Here though, he returns from a bit of a break with a new EP, In The Moment, which also introduces a jazzier tone to his sound. The title track kicks things off with laid-back Mediterranean moods - gentle percussion, warm synth washes and jazzy keys tinkling away. Elsewhere "Hot To Trot" ups the tempo and adds shimmering arpeggios into the mix, "Embrace It" meanwhile embraces the live and loose funk bass and finally The Model reworks Hot To Trot into deep trance-tech.

Review: Yam Who's ISM imprint has been in fine form of late, delivering excellent EPs from Alena, Bubblegum, The Drive and Ilija Rudman. Here that run continues, as the veteran producer unleashes an impressive debut album from I Gemin, AKA newcomer Mike Popov. There's much to admire from the off, with "Can't Nobody" offering a deliciously loose and jazzy fusion of pulsating garage bass, two-step influenced beats, lilting deep house chords and evocative vocal samples. Elsewhere, he delivers some Floating Points-esque deep house lusciousness (the superb, boogie-influenced "Private Life") and - best of all - a carnival-friendly chunk of woozy, horn-laden, 21st century dancefloor soul ("Next 2 Me"). Yam Who and Leebo Freeman deliver killer remixes, with the latter's dub-flecked deep house take on "Next 2 Me" standing out.

Review: Slovenian photographer-turned-producer Ichisan enjoyed his most prolific year to date in 2014, with releases appearing on Internasjonal, Catune and Danny Was A Drag King. Here he pops up on Yam Who's ISM label with more bouncy, synth-laden nu-disco fare. That's arguably best represented by the jammed out keys and rich chords of bubbling bonus cut "Veg Out", though there's more of a shamelessly Adriatic vibe about the cascading melodies and laidback disco shuffle of "Bela Ljubljana". That track gets treated to a pair of remixes; a chunkier, analogue-heavy dub disco interpretation from Yam Who, and an acid-flecked, pleasingly trippy take from Kalidasa.

Review: After releasing his debut full-length on Bear Funk earlier this year, Croatian synth-disco specialist Ilija Rudman returns to ISM with two of his most interesting productions to date. "Crazy With You" - available in original, dub and lively Yam Who remix flavours - is arguably Rudman's most polished production yet, coming on like classic NYC boogie stripped back to its bare bones (think slap bass, Fairlight stabs, cowbells and a great vocal). "Let This Dream Be Real" continues on the same path, this time pushing a mid-80s soul vibe. It's similarly well produced and comes backed with a delicious nu-disco meets vaguely Balearic deep house remix from Disco Dirtbox.

Review: Here's a devilishly simple but nevertheless inspired idea from Yam Who's ISM label: a 21st-centrury update of Imagination's legendary 1983 remix album Night Dubbing. While this version is nowhere near as dub-influenced as the original (which, after all, contained contributions from Larry Levan), it does contain some rather sublime new interpretations of Imagination's greatest hits. Highlights include an epic version of "Just An Illusion" from John Morales, an anthem-like version of "Flashback" from Kon, a deliciously atmospheric reinterpretation of "Music & Lights" from Sleazy McQueen and a typically deep, warm and synth-heavy re-shape of "Burning Up" from Soul Clap. Best of all, though, is J Kriv's nu jack swing-influenced remix of "Body Talk", which simply oozes the authentic feel of late '80s electro.

Review: Yam Who? And his ISM imprint: accept no substitute. For smooth as silk disco beats these guys are like a one stop shop. This time it's over to Verona duo JazzyFunk. "Don't You Worry Bout A Thing" has that classic Arthur Russell Loose Joints/Dinosaur L kind of disco vibes and we've digging it! "I Want You" is a driving deep house jam with tight elements and that saxophone solo is a nice touch. It gets a great couple of remixes too by Horsemeat Disco's Severino and then Australia's Inkswel; his in particular really stands out, giving the track a deep boogie makeover.

This new addition to their roster being Jsquared aka the Tokyo-based artist John Enston and singer Honami 'Amy' Furuhara. "Dangerlove" is a smoothly produced slice classy...Europop in which Enston and Amy gently duet over a tropical beat that even touches on sunkissed RnB vibes. Remixes include the Autocycle version, which starts with a killer guitar riff and builds into dreamy arpeggiated disco and Yam Who?s own's piano house rework. Cool.

Review: For a short while back in the late 80s there was luxurious crossover of house, soul and hip-hop. These Soul II Soul/Cold Cut & Lisa Stansfield-style vibes were explored more recently with Jessie Ware and Julio Bashmore but here on the Sign EP Kane & Gleeson really go for it. "Control" and "Sign" both feature the style's deep, rolling bass, fuzzy synths, gentle piano and soulful vocals. Elsewhere "Life" is a bit housier with late 80s Ibiza vibes thrown into the mix (think French Kiss/Sueno Latino) and the title track is given a disco makeover by none other than YamWho?

Review: Containing the combined talents of members of Faze Action and Yam Who, Killer Whale might just be the super group of the nu disco genre. On their debut EP King Of New York they pay tribute to legendary NYC porducer Arthur Russell with cover versions of two of Russell's most famous Loose Joints tracks. Neither of Killer Whale's versions of "Tell You (Today)" or "Is It All Over My Face" deviate very far from the original tracks and instead are very faithful recreations with the sort of expert musicianship you'd expect from the people involved. Of the three remixers, edit don Leo Zero wins out with his percussion heavy extended club dub "Tell You (Today)" with the piano riff floating atop the submerged sax and vocals.

Review: Producers Marten Roberto and Nikolay Danev made their collaborative debut last summer, delivering a fine chunk of R&B and electrofunk-influenced house via the Mr Moon label. Here they join forces once more, this time on Yam Who's ISM imprint. Title track "Alive" is a more intoxicating, early morning concoction that their previous effort, with dubbed-out horn lines, wild Hammond organs and a wearily soulful vocal riding a heavy dub disco groove. It's really rather good, and comes accompanied by a cowbell-heavy, piano-sporting peak-time rework by the previously mentioned Yam Who. As if that's not enough to get the juices flowing, they've also included the swirling, stab-heavy, soul-flecked deep house bounce of "Everybody Loves Disco".

Review: Whiskey Disco head honcho Sleazy drops out of the edit game for a second to serve up a shimmering nu-disco original. With far-away rushy vocals, slinky bassline and raw positivity dripping off the synths, this has potential to waterproof the summer in its groove juice. The remixes are pretty remarkable, too; Chris Massey gets heavy on the bass in a house-bound UKG way, Anthony Mansfield darkens things up with heady doses of psychedelia and acid in a way that's not dissimilar to a certain Andrew Weatherall. St Petersburg Disco Spin Club end the party with a series of classic house motifs processed with heaps of reverb and slinky breakbeats.

Review: Misumami is the brainchild of producer Charli James whose name sounds like a Rick James-esque '80s soul seducer. Unsurprisingly "The Bodyrock Sessions" also sounds like seductive Rick James-esque '80s soul. This is a very good thing indeed as on the title track we a trot through all that was good about that period - electro-funk basslines, sharp, strutting drums, vocoders and smooth lady vocals. Elsewhere The Yam Who? guys rustle up a warmer bass-orientated version of "Prove It", Atlanta's Applejac produces a hi-hat heavy deep house rework, whilst Kid Sublime tackles the title track in an admirably weird future soul fashion.

Lastly Manchester's go-to disco guy Chris Massey turns in a sultry, nocturnal funk workout, called "Lost Disco Dub".

Review: In the UK at least, the name Pollard is probably forever associated with good old Su. However we doubt Hi-De-Hi ever reached the sunkissed beaches of Australia from where Thomas Pollard (aka North Pollard) hails. Anyway this EP conjures up the kind of dreamy, blissed out holidays you'd actually want to have (and very far from a Yellowcoat nightmare). "Dream For Me" features crowd chants, hysterical, escalating synths and a deep tropical sunset vibe, whilst "Flight" is all comatose stoner R&B (Tom Day tweaks this into fragile synth bliss)- taken even further on the footwork heavy "Relax Ken".

Review: For disco heads, this Odyssey remix set should be an exciting prospect. Admittedly, the tracks being remixed are their 2011 re-recordings (originally seen on last summer's Legacy album) rather than the 70s and 80s originals, but don't let that put you off - especially as some of the reworks are superb. There's plenty of delightfully floor-friendly fodder on show, from Ray Mang's guitar-flecked re-invention of "Use It Up & Wear It Out" and Flash Atkins' Shaft-goes-dub-disco take on "Don't Tell Me Tell Her" to the everything-but-the-kitchen sink antics of Faze Action and DJD. While not every mix hits the spot, there's more than enough to warrant further investigation.

Review: Since recording all new versions of their classic hits with producer Yam Who, Odyssey seem to have enjoyed a new lease of life. Here, they cover disco classic "Weekend" with a little help from original New York mix-master John Morales (who, as part of M+M, remixed the Class Action version). Morales provides four versions; a full vocal mix that sounds like a cross between the Phreek and Class Action versions, a delightfully cowbell-heavy Vocal Dub, and two instrumentals. Good as these mixes are, they're put in the shade by Ashley Beedle's version, which opts for a more swinging groove and some brilliant piano solo action. There's also an excellent bonus in the shape of Crispin J Glover's tough but groovy Boogie Dub of "Inside Out".

Review: It was all the way back in 2011 when New York disco outfit Odyssey were resurrected to re-record their infamous The Journey, a piece of music which has a lifeline longer than most of you readers, and one that will probably stretch out to infinity. As they do, the ISM imprint has now decided to revive the damn thing again with a pack of worthy remixes to celebrate its 40th anniversary! Jay Sutherland's revision of "Native New Yorker" takes all the original disco charm of the tune and represents it with a heftier groove for contemporary dance floor thrills, whereas legend Al Kent shapes "Inside Out" into a mighty fine, sexified disco-soul nugget that's bound to destroy any respectable club apart. There's the original mix, featuring Romina Johnson on the vocals, of course, and a tasty instrumental.

Review: What was perhaps most thrilling about the early work of Off Key Hat pairing Leon Mayes and Darren Morris was its strange, oddball nature. Since leaving the now defunct Dissident imprint a few years back, they've progressively moved further towards a brand of oddball synth-pop that references Italo, electrofunk and acid just as much as early 80s new wave and alternative pop. Dangerous Machine, their debut album, completes that journey. With regular vocalist Michelle Manetti in fine voice, it features 10 powerful, leftfield synth-pop moments that veer from the wobbly and wonky ("Night Of The Off Key Hat") and sweet and funky ("Super Sound Single", "Emergency Calling") to the downright dirty (the Goldfrapp-ish "Lairy Lil' Junkie").
