Review: We can't believe it's a whole year since Madrid's Los Grandes dropped Future Feeling's nu-disco bomb, the Funk EP. Well, Our Nights are keeping its spirit alive by releasing a whole bunch of remixes of lead track, "Skylife"; Fernando gives his old cowbell and voicebox a good workout, Heion goes heavy on the squelchy analogue grooves, L'equipe Du Son brings some killer Chicago jack to the party and Modulaire supplies some stripped back Italo vibes. Also the mighty Dynamicron adds all kind of quirky noises to "Africa's" leftfield disco shizzle.
Review: Second time around for Romanian producer Razvan Ghenciu's So Much Soul EP, which gained plenty of plaudits on its 2012 release on Los Grandes. Here, the EP's four original tracks get a good seeing-to from some of the leading lights in the 2013 nu-disco/disco-house scene. There's plenty to enjoy, from the darting P-funk synths and classic house pianos of JKriv's rework of "Circus", to the ultra-deep house smokiness of Softmore's luscious version of "Silk". There are some particularly tasty slow jams, too, of which Rocco Raimundo's suitably sleazy remix of "Circus" stands out. Really, though, it's all good.
