Review: A warm welcome back to sometime Wonder Stories, Silhouette Music and Roam Recordings artist Jac The Disco, who here returns to the Spin On This label, which is the artists very own imprint. It's a suitably strong EP all told, with two solid 'JTD' originals being backed by similarly strong remixes. Opener 'Manglik' is a metronomic, chugging affair, with Jac The Disco peppering a throbbing, Mororder style arpeggio bassline with rising and falling synthesizer melodies and spacey electronic flourishes. Eric Duncan piles on the wide-eyed chords and synthesizer sounds on his excellent remix, while "Goddess" is a much more spacey and cosmic chunk of pulsating electronic disco. Arguably even better is Juan Maclean's accompanying rework, which gives the track a bigger, more acid-flecked feel.
Review: Disco really doesn't come much more lo-slung and sleazy than this druggy small-hours epic from UK producer Jay Rossi. In its Original form, 'Hot Like The Sun' centres round a heavyweight, slo-mo bassline that it tops with assorted 80s Euro-sounding synths and the classic vocal from C'hantal's 'The Realm' - that's the "it's the point of highest intensity" one, for the uninitiated. Remix-wise the Instrumental is self-explanatory, Kiwi adds some gnarly rave synth stabs while Craig Bratley drops the vocal and gives the drums a lil' extra swing. A surefire attention-grabber whichever rub you plump for.
