More from prolific duo Cuz Electric (AKA producer Rich Hall and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Megan Jones), who have previously released material on Paper Disco, Alpaca Edits, Midnight Riot and Spincat Music. "Santa Cuz" (chuckle) marks their first release for Particle Zoo. There are two original cuts to choose from: the classic electrofunk/gentle piano house fusion of "Mother's Ruin", which features a particularly strong vocal from Jones, and the dreamier nu-disco flex of "Dea's Gone Dancing", where decidedly Balearic musical touches wrap themselves around a synth bass-propelled groove. The package also contains a trio of tasty remixes, of which Stephen Richards' rubbery and percussive dub disco take on "Dea's Gone Dancing" and Don Dayglow's dubbed-out, acid-flecked revision of "Mother's Ruin" - made in tribute to Boyd Jarvis - are our picks.
Having set out their stall via a tasty debut EP on Golden Soul earlier this year, Nu-disco twosome Limpodisco transfers to Particle Zoo Recordings. The Ukranian duo sets their stall out immediately via "Harmonium", a breezy and strangely incessant mid-tempo cosmic disco workout rich in Balkan guitar passages, faintly foreboding electronics and suitably crispy drums. There's a spacey, delay-laden New York proto-house feel to the "Walking On Sunshine"-sampling brilliance of "Time To Stop", while 107 BPM sunshine-special "Euphoria" more than lives up to its name (and makes great use of elements borrowed from a Balearic favourite). Finally, "What Where When" is a post-punk-era chunk of Italo-fired cosmic disco heaviness.
