Review: Norwegian nu-disco sort Kellini is a hard-working chap. "In & Out", his return to Walking Disco after a nine-month absense, comes hot on the heels of 2018 EPs for Midnight Riot and Masterworks Music. His original version is a deliciously giddy and up-beat affair, with Chic style clipped guitar riffs, sweaty vocal samples and spacey P-funk electronics clustering around loose, boisterous beats and a fantastically addictive bassline. There are four remixes to choose from, beginning with the sweet, piano-laden Balearic disco smoothness of Basura Blanca's ear-pleasing rework. Elsewhere, look out for an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink piano house mix by Blueberg and a wonderful interpretation from Saskin S that draws inspiration from the sunrise flutter of early Italian dream house.
Review: An 11-track compilation of modern day funk and disco here from Norway's Walking Disco stable. While Rayko and C Da Afro are both represented, the emphasis generally is on lesser-known names, but there's still plenty of quality on offer. Fingerman conjures the classier, jazzier end of 80s boogie nicely on 'Mind Fonk', while equally convincing are the mid-70s velvet-suited disco vibes of Disco Funk Spinner's 'Fascinating Strike'. Funk Hunk apes classic Moroder on 'After Dark', while label owner Saskin S bookends the collection with two slow-moving funk jams, 'Yes, You Know I'm Right' and 'My Pnoop'. Classy stuff.
