Got You Where I Want You Babe (12 inch mix remaster) - (7:58) 131 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Got You Where I Want You Babe (dub mix) - (6:08) 130 BPM
Review: A reissue here for what was, as far as we can make out, the only ever release from Stereo Fun Inc - and perhaps not surprisingly, because while it didn't come out until 1983, 'Got You Where I Want You Babe' harked back to a slightly earlier disco era, when there were a lot less synthesizers in play and a lot more trans-Atlantic cross-pollination between the disco and Northern Soul scenes. So expect stomping 4/4 beats, soaring strings and a full female soul vocal - though the accompanying Dub, which drops the vocal, tones down the Northern elements and lets the strings do the lifting, is probably the pick for non-specialist floors.

Osamu Shoji - "10C Bag" (original) - (2:54) 108 BPM
   
The House-Band - "Schizzo Trip" - (2:06) 97 BPM
Played by: Vincent Inc
Review: NYC-based UTC Limited, specialists in obscure funk and disco, bring us a split EP featuring two artists. Osamu Shoji (1932-2018) was a Japanese synth pioneer who was perhaps best known for this 1978 re-recording of the entire 'Star Wars' soundtrack, and his '10C Bag' is the kind of lounge-y synth-disco that'll appeal to those who like it on the kitsch-y side. Who The House-Band are/were, on the other hand, we have no idea, but 'Schizzo Trip' is in a similarly camp vein to '10C Bag' - it's just a bit more 'sunny afternoon on the Left Bank' than 'midnight in Shinjuku'.

Serenade To The Sunrise - (3:14) 123 BPM
Played by: Vincent Inc
Review: A reissue here for a sought-after Italo-disco classic from way back in 1983, as UTC Limited serve up two tracks that originally featured on the Orchestra Charles Brissot's one and only long-player 'Running For Fun'. 'Second Galaxis' owes a major debt of inspiration to Space's 'Magic Fly' from a decade earlier, being centred around a very similar-sounding plinky-plonky analogue synth riff (as well as some startlingly acid-like burbles), while 'Serenade To The Sunrise' is a gloriously cheesy affair with synthesized strings taking the lead - were The Love Boat ever to take off into outer space, this is what'd be playing in the ballroom!

Back To Disko - (3:55) 122 BPM
Played by: Vincent Inc
Review: Reynald Deschamps was rather active in the 1990s. During the decade, he released tons of disco-fired dancefloor cuts under a wide variety of aliases. Amongst his most popular projects was Groove & The Gang, which debuted way back in 1994. It's from that year that these two cuts are taken. "In The Mood To Party" is a simmering, smile-inducing and deliciously groovy chunk of mid-'90s New Jersey garage/New York house hybrid, with sampled horns, jaunty organ stabs and "Show Me Love" style riffs rising above gentle beats and a killer bassline. "Back To Disko" is a touch tougher and more robust, with his usual headline-grabbing organs weaving in and out of rubbery synth bass, hard disco-funk guitars and bustling, hip-swinging garage beats.

Played by: Vincent Inc
Review: Eddie Matos is more commonly associated with the groundbreaking Mateo & Matos duo out of NYC, this was originally released in 1998 under his Disko Method alias on his Under The Counter imprint. He digitally re-issues the absolutely infectious disco loops of "C'mon & Dance" for your listening pleasure. This wonderful edit is as good as anything Nick Holder, DJ Sneak or Paul Johson were doing at the time. "Higher" is more of a lo-slung joint but equally as funky and surely on the disco tip with some samples used that you're sure to recognise from a classic.

Review: A legendary funk band from Brooklyn, Brass Construction blazed a trail throughout the 70s producing grade-A vintage boogie. Much of their repertoire has been plundered by sample-heavy acts since, but here we get the original and true album version of 1975's "Movin". Displaying the kind of musicianship that could only be learnt by slogging it out on the notorious Chitlin' Circuit. Moogs and mellotrons, funky bass and smooth vocals, the song is still a party bomb now. However the SAW-house style extended/Back To My Roots mix and the syrupy 80s pop of "Give And Take" both add some 'challenging' schmaltziness.

Review: New York reissue kings UTC have excelled themselves once more with this unearthing of a forgotten gem by Bunny Mack. Throughout the 60s and 70s, Mack, from Sierra Leone, was a jobbing musician who scored the occasional minor hit here and there. Then, in the late-'70s he hooked up with producer Akie Deen (The Afronationals) and together they created Mack's landmark disco album, Let Me Love You. The LP contained the title track, Discolypso and this song, "Love Sweet Love", a richly orchestrated six-minute jazzy boogie noodle, which has now joyfully resurfaced in the digital world.

I Love You - (4:48) 122 BPM

Review: Composer, arranger, pianist and producer Bebu Silvetti is most famous for "Spring Rain", a Salsoul-released chunk of symphonic disco written and released in 1977. He was responsible some other sumptuous, grandly produced disco cuts during the period, including "I Love You", which here gets a digital reissue. The title track from his 1980 album of the same name, it wraps sugary-sweet vocals in typically undulating strings, luscious orchestration and a no-nonsense disco groove. Production-wise, it ticks a lot of disco boxes - think stripped-back instrumental passages, whispered vocal build-ups, a colossal drop, and so on - and should be considered one of the Argentine's most absorbing compositions.

Review: Here we have a truly rare disco-funk gem courtesy of UTC. Teo Macero was a hugely influential American jazz saxophonist, composer, and record producer. Known for his work with Miles Davis in the '50s, and he continued to produce high quality music for decades afterwards, soundtracks in particular. "Sweet Truth" is a furious disco-noodle freakout complete with ADHD bass and flute solos, and was originally found on the soundtrack to obscure '80s movie, Virus.

Jupiter Finger - (5:03) 121 BPM
Played by: Vincent Inc
Review: Browse New York label UTC Limited's online catalogue, and you'll find a range of disco, soul, funk and boogie reissues, with well-known classics rubbing shoulders with lesser-known gems. Keyboardist Mike Mandel's fusion killer "Jupiter Finger" undoubtedly falls into the latter category. Originally featured on his 1978, Vanguard-released full-length Sky Music, it offers a delicious mixture of Herbie Hancock style jazz-funk synths, sunny disco horns, loose rhythms and some superb Rhodes-playing. In many ways it's an odd track to reissue, but this digital issue is certainly welcome; "Jupiter Finger" is as summery as sunburn, disappointing barbecues and England losing at cricket.

Review: Not much info about this one, but it's still very much worthy of your attention. It offers a smart, floor-friendly rework of a little-known disco record celebrating the joys of that most 1970s of fads, the roller disco. It's pretty faithful to the obscure original, offering tighter percussion to appeal to contemporary DJs. That aside, it sticks to the original grooves, strings, horns and joyous vocals, promoting a celebratory vibe that should appeal to the new wave of roller-revivalists currently skating up a storm in cities like London and Bristol.
