You're The One EP
The Silver Rider - "Roundhouse" - (5:36) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
The Silver Rider - "You're The One" - (6:25) 120 BPM
Bustin' Loose - "These Ol' Days" - (6:12) 125 BPM
Bustin' Loose - "Home Way Phase" - (6:17) 124 BPM
Review: Austin's Silver Rider returns to Whiskey Disco with his fourth split EP for the label, this time in cahoots with South London oppo Bustin' Loose. The pair contribute two re-edits apiece, though sadly the only source we can identify is Skyy's 'First Time Around' (1979), which forms the basis for 'Roundhouse'. Elsewhere, 'You're The One' bites an unidentified, male-voiced 80s soul/boogie jam, 'Those Ol' Days' is a laidback funk-soul groove with a "one thing" female vocal loop while 'Home Way Phase' is more energetic and rocks another looped female vocal ("my past experience has taught me what I know now").

Holiday Holiday
Holiday Holiday - (7:29) 119 BPM
Dancer - (6:40) 121 BPM
Be My Lover - (5:33) 107 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Three very solid disco/funk re-edits here from Shanghai-based Thoma Cher. The original sources are sadly unknown, but the mid-paced 'Holiday Holiday' is a lightly rolling little groover with hints of barrio funk and tropical disco around the edges, while 'Dancer' is a more down 'n' dirty funker, centred around some rather fine slap bass but topped with a poppy female chorus that pays homage to the roller disco. The EP standout to these ears, though, is 'Be My Lover', a somewhat lower-tempo and altogether more sultry 'n' sexy affair with lavish late 70s-sounding production, a breathy female vocal and something of a late-night, Blaxploitation kinda feel overall.

The Fedora Files
Kjempegreie - (5:24) 126 BPM
Never Gonna Be The Same - (6:59) 130 BPM
True Love - (7:23) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco label bring us a three-track re-edits EP from Norwegian disco producer Rulefinn. The original source for lead cut 'Kjempegreie' remains sadly a mystery to us, but it's an uptempo number that marries chanted Afro-style vox to plinky-plonk, 80s-sounding synths. Elsewhere, 'Never Gonna Be The Same' reworks the Ruth Waters cut of that title from 1978, while James Wells' 'True Love Is My Destiny' from the same year provides the basis for 'True Love', with both tracks exuberant, uplifting affairs that are best suited to those who regularly use the phrase "gloriously camp".

Love Disco EP
Space Love - (8:48) 131 BPM
Love Disco - (6:11) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Inside Lookin In - (5:49) 128 BPM
Waiting On Love - (6:45) 126 BPM
Review: Robert Ouimet has some serious pedigree - the Montreal native has been manning the booths of Canadian discotheques since the early 70s! It's not entirely clear whether the four tracks featured here - which are finally getting a digital release after dropping on vinyl last year - are original productions or re-edits. If they fall into the latter camp, then he's dug admirably deep for source material, but then he's uniquely positioned to do so; if they're original cuts he's captured that mid-late 70s disco vibe perfectly but then, again, that's hardly surprising! Either way, this is some real-deal shizzle right here.

Rosella EP
Rosella - (5:46) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
You're The Reason Why - (5:19) 112 BPM
Silk & Satin - (4:53) 128 BPM
One Night In Prague - (6:29) 131 BPM
Review: Finnigan Langham AKA Kayroy made his Whiskey Disco debut 19 months ago via a must-check collection of club-ready re-edits. This belated sequel sees the fast-rising producer offer up more heavyweight reworks that somehow manage to dub-out, layer-up and rearrange classic cuts without adding any cheap new bits or contemporary production trickery. He begins by turning a classic Crown Heights Affair sing-along into a head-mangling dub disco instrumental ("Rosella"), before cannily building pressure via slowly changing loops on the saucer-eyed disco sweetness of "You're The Reason Why". "Silk & Satin" is an energetic, electric guitar solo-sporting disco-funk romp, while closing cut "One Night In Prague" is a brilliantly breathless revision of a truly bonkers Euro-disco-meets-heavy-rock number.

Make Your Move - (6:44) 122 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Harmony (Sleazy Mcqueen 6Am mix) - (6:26) 122 BPM
Review: Four very serviceable slices of contemporary disco/disco-house make up this latest from the Whiskey Disco camp. '21212' is an understated, shufflin' affair with Latin and lounge overtones, then bursts into life with some proper hands-in-the-air piano action. 'Touch Down' then takes us into deeper, mellow territory before 'Make Your Move' brings the good-time disco vibes, with a vaguely 'Disco Inferno'-ish bassline and a looping female "hey babe..." vocal. The EP's completed by the Sleazy McQueen 6am Mix of 'Harmony', a housier jam featuring a microsnip of a Whitney vocal that was famously pilfered by Brothers In Rhythm in the rave days.

The Silver Rider - "Hustle Up" - (6:38) 120 BPM
The Funk District - "Imaki Ra Reo" - (7:35) 124 BPM
The Funk District - "The Root Of Evil" - (6:48) 124 BPM
Review: A cross-border collaboration here as Austin, Texas-based nu disco producer The Silver Rider joins forces with his Mexican counterpart Fernando Mendoza, AKA The Funk District, for a split EP on Whiskey Disco. The Silver Rider brings us 'Woman', a pacey, looping funk groove with a neat line in rasping bass and spoken, Euro-style vox, and 'Hustle Up', which comes on like a Blaxploitation funk jam. Then it's over to The Funk Rider for 'Imaki Ra Reo', a lively, Latin-leaning affair with a hefty bottom end and some truly wild sax blasts, and 'The Root Of Evil', which like 'Hustle Up' has an understated, soundtrack-y feel.

A New Birth EP
Just As Bad As You - (7:23) 107 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
The Prison - (5:50) 106 BPM
I Know I've Been Changed - (8:56) 120 BPM
New York Paris - (5:16) 112 BPM
Review: Four lavish cuts drawing on classic funk, soul and disco make up this EP from Derby's Ant Plate, better known variously as Yse, Yse Saint Laur'ant or Rhythm Plate. 'Just As Bad As You' is a midpaced cut that tops a pulsating funk groove with soaring brass and a full-lunged female soul vocal. 'The Prison' is a mellower, more cinematic affair with a spoken vocal, 'I Know I've Been Changed' is an upbeat stomper on the house/disco cusp and finally 'New York Paris' sees us back in soundtrack-y territory, conjuring images of a late-night cab ride through late 70s mean streets.

Brothers On The Slide EP

Pontchartrain - "Hey Mariposa" - (6:37) 120 BPM
Thatmanmonkz - "Luh Me On Mi Celly" - (6:54) 107 BPM
Thatmanmonkz - "Radiation Steppa" - (5:52) 118 BPM
Review: It may have taken a few months, but Whiskey Disco's latest split EP - a fine affair featuring two reworks apiece from Ponchartrain and Sheffield-based East Midlander Thatmanmonkz - has finally made it to digital download. Pontchartrain steps up first, first offering up the breezy, tropical-sounding disco stomp of "La Magie" - all punchy horns, classic disco bass, fizzing synth lines and glassy-eyed female vocals - before brilliantly reworking an obscure disco/jazz-funk instrumental (the suitably spacey "Hey Mariposa"). Arguably even better is "Luh Me On Mi Celly", the low-slung, stretched-out dub disco revision that counts as thatmanmonkz's first contribution to the EP. His second, "Radiation Steppa", is a fizzing, synth-heavy disco-boogie number blessed with passionate male group vocals.

Pavlova Casanova EP
Like Damn! - (6:36) 127 BPM
Pavlova Casanova - (6:39) 123 BPM
Sandy Shackles - (5:22) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Swirl Inside - (6:48) 114 BPM
Review: Four slices of sumptuous modern disco here from Melbourne's Kayroy, brought to you by Florida's Whiskey Disco. 'Like Damn!', up first, rocks the early 70s barrio funk vibes, with wukka-wukking geetar, frantic percussion and fat funk bass topped with a chanted female vocal to start before a full soul vocal and soaring brass break out later on. 'Pavlova Casanova' itself operates in similar territory and sports a chopped 'n' looped female "you've got the power of love over me" vocal, 'Sandy Shackles' has more of a lounge-y, Eurodisco feel, while closer 'Swirl Inside' maintains the lounge-y vibe with chorus'd vox and some gloriously cheesy analogue synth sounds.

Trenitalia - (8:58) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Flying Objects - (7:18) 118 BPM
Soul Fire - (6:49) 115 BPM
Review: As a reward for contributing some killer re-edits to multi-artist EPs, Whiskey Disco has given Alex Zuiev the chance to strut his stuff over the course of a four-track EP. First up is "Trenitalia", a rubbery and rolling affair in which spacey synth stabs, disco-funk horns and what sound like Spanish spoken word snippets leap above a bustling, bass-heavy rhythm track. "Flying Objects" sees the Ukranian producer breathe new life into a flute-sporting disco-boogie roller whose strong bassline and handclap-heavy rhythm track will keep things moving on the dancefloor, while "Soul Fire" is a low-slung chunk of sleazy disco-house hypnotism for dancers who like their jams sleazy, psychedelic and notably weighty.

In Love - (7:39) 114 BPM
Goodbye Ketan - (7:14) 129 BPM
That Same Old Feeling - (8:12) 119 BPM
Review: When this fine four-tracker appeared on vinyl last autumn, it marked Vicnenzo de Bull's first solo release following a string of contributions to compilation style releases on Queen and Disco, Kolour Ltd and Masterworks Music. It's well worth picking up this digital download edition, not least for the loopy, filter rich disco-house celebration that is peak-time smasher "Champ 1". The fun continues elsewhere across the EP, from the smooth, boogie-goes-house sensuality of "In Love", to the rubbery bounce of "That Same Old Feeling", a chunky revision of a dewy-eyed disco-funk number full of rolling beats, tactile vocal samples and crunchy Clavinet lines. Whiskey Disco rarely disappoints, but this is one of the imprint's best releases for some time.

You Make Me Feel So Fine
Doc L Junior - "Closer" - (7:04) 118 BPM
GOD - "Chicha DaHumo" - (6:29) 110 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Just Baker - "You Make Me Feel So Fine" - (6:34) 118 BPM
Review: The sixth volume in Whiskey Disco's ongoing "Small Batch" series boasts a tasty rework from one of the longest-serving members of the Norwegian house and disco fraternity, former Music For Freaks and Sex Tags Mania contributor Doc L Junior. His contribution, "Closer", is undeniably the EP's strongest moment, with the Tromso resident brilliantly wrapping jammed-out electric piano lines, chiming vibraphone solos and tight horn blasts around a chunky and bumping house groove. Elsewhere, Colombian crew GOD (short for "Grumpy Old DJs", apparently) brilliantly breathe new life into what sounds like a sun-kissed Brazilian boogie record from the mid 1980s, before Just Baker offers up a loopy, filter-sporting trip into swirling disco-house territory.

CanaT Stop Christy - (7:13) 125 BPM
Take You There - (6:29) 121 BPM
Review: Via a series of riotous re-edit EPs on Basic Fingers, the Patchouli Brothers have quickly established themselves as purveyors of high quality, party-starting fare. It's little surprise to find that the Toronto twosome's Whiskey Disco debut is packed with cracking cuts, too. First turn your attention to elastic EP opener "He Wonders" - a starburst of exotic synth lines, misty-eyed vocals, bouncy beats and rubbery bass guitar - before shaking your rump to the horn-heavy deep disco-funk flex of "A Mighty Joy". "Can't Stop Christy" is a beacon of hot-stepping tropical disco warmth, while "Take You There" serves up some seriously soaring classic disco.

Tres Gueros - "Underneath" (B-Team remix) - (5:39) 123 BPM
Sleazy McQueen - "Pretty Baby" - (7:23) 104 BPM
Review: When it first appeared on wax earlier in the year, this marked the first appearance on Whiskey Disco's "Small Batch" offshoot by the DJ/producer behind the label, sleazy McQueen. It's a compilation style affair featuring, in turn, a previously unheard McQueen remix of Snax's "Turn It" (a rich, rolling cut that sits somewhere between vintage U.S house, nu-disco and more cosmic flavours), a long forgotten - but killer - 2008 B-Team remix of Sleazy side project Tres Guero (heavy dub disco/disco-house fusion), and a sultry, string-drenched new disco edit (the starry-eyed dancefloor bliss of "Pretty Baby"). Naturally, all three cuts are of the highest quality.

Alex Zuiev - "Bus Stop" - (6:25) 120 BPM
Murge - "Sounds Of The Inner City" - (6:58) 115 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: 13 months after first slipping out on vibrant purple vinyl, Whiskey Disco's compilation style "Sounds of the Inner City" EP finally makes it to digital. And not a moment too soon, either, because Alex Zuiev's throbbing, acid-flecked disco-house revision of "Bus Stop" is an absolute stormer (and, for the record, pre-dates the Chaka Khan's similarly minded, "Bus Stop"-sampling "Like Sugar"). There's plenty to set the pulse racing elsewhere on the EP too, from the slap-bass propelled brilliance of Murge's swirling orchestral disco rework "Sounds of the Inner City", to the low-slung, bass-heavy boogie badness of Frank Angles' "Please U".

Review: Sleazy McQueen presents another wicked serving of Disco deviance on the always reliable Whiskey Disco. The North Carolina based imprint's 57th edition gives us four more surefire disco edits by the likes of Tony Chocoloney from Melbourne, Australia who gives us some funked-up soulpower on "Less Groove", Ukrainian Alex Zuiev gives us a loungey kinda something' on the tres chic "Valentina" and Anthony Mansfield delivers an unrepentant use of sleek filter sweeps throughout the slo-mo antics of "It's Too Late" featuring a bit of help from good buddy DJ M3.

The Rejected - "O Craque De Futbol" - (6:59) 104 BPM
Pontchartrain - "Have A Little Taste" - (7:12) 124 BPM
Review: Whiskey Disco continues with its juicy 2018 with something of a sweaty beast, with a quartet of producers stepping up to deliver some sticky dancefloor heat. Label chief Sleazy McQueen joins forces with Vagabundo Social Club with edit "Boh!", a slamming rework of a Bohannon-esque disco-funk jam rich in hard guitar riffs and crunchy Clavinet lines. The Rejected takes a different approach, serving up a rolling, delay-laden tweak of celebratory, soccer-themed Brazilian club jam "O Craque De Futbol". Sunny, funky and low-slung, it's accompanied by the gently housed-up swamp funk of Pontchartrain's "Have a Little Taste". Given the quality of the EP, we're more than happy to follow that instruction.

The Camel - (6:26) 110 BPM
Review: Having made his name with a string of fine rework releases on the acclaimed Tugboat Edits imprint, Guillermo "Hotmood" Gonzalez makes his first appearance on Whiskey Disco. Disco De Los Muertos ("Disco of the dead", if our Spanish is up to scratch) is predictably full of cheeky dancefloor moments that should appeal to both house and disco DJs alike. Our pick of the bunch is probably the low-slung "Playing The Groove For An Hour", where fizzing synth stabs ride a ridiculously rubbery slap bass riff and rolling house groove. That said, the deeper and dreamier "The Camel" is rather good, while the horror-tinged Mexican funk-goes-house fare stretched across the A-side is both rock solid and highly playable.

Alex Zuiev - "Afro Magic" - (6:28) 118 BPM
Review: It's fair to say that Whiskey Disco rarely fails to disappoint. Sleazy McQueen's long-serving label is undoubtedly one of the most consistent re-edit imprints around, making each successive release a "must-check". Naturally, there's plenty of club-ready goodness to be found on the label's latest missive, from the vibraphone-sporting, reverb-laden disco bounce of Alkalino's "Body & Soul" edit, to the beefed-up, Afro-disco-with-house-beats heaviness of Alex Juiev's "Afro Magic". In between, Love Drop pitch up and straighten out a Grace Jones favourite, while Terrence Pearce brilliantly plays around with a spacey disco classic on "Ushukela". In other words, it's another tight collection of cut-jobs from Whiskey Disco.

Will Buck/PRTMNTO - "I Need Your Love" - (6:40) 122 BPM
Vagabundo Club Social - "Sonico Amor" - (7:36) 118 BPM
Review: 'Lovergirl' has us recalling images of early Prince with 80's power ballad screams next to sexy breathy spoken vox and hard drums which begin to morph into a calm shuffling near techno vibe.
'Love Me Too' is just as funky, but we're treading in more suave waters, with chilled shakers and real bass guitar and strings. 'Need Your Love' is the most modern sounding piece on the release and also our favourite track, with all the groove and swag needed to pull off good disco, it has this nu-school sounding unescapable loop, which captures you in a way that's almost magnetic. You'll recognize elements of Modjo's ever classic 'Lady' or Miss Khan depending on your generational tastes. 'Sonico Amor' is more relaxed, and focused on the beat.

Review: Whatever Whiskey Disco serves up on their regular multi-artist re-edit EPs, it's invariably high quality. Happily, that's certainly the case with the material showcased on Make Your Day. You'll struggle to find a more positive and hedonistic chunk of disco-funk/boogie rearrangement than Derek Kaye's rolling revision "Sing a Song", while Sandrobianchi and Tripman's "Strawberry Letter" is extraordinarily loved up and psychedelic in the best possible way (and, yes, it's definitely Balearic). The EP also includes some high-grade, synth-laden electrofunk (Rabo & Snob's ace "No One Can Do It") and more than a sprinkling of AOR disco camp (In The Night's thrillingly tongue-in-cheek "Love Drop").

The Baltic Beaches EP pairs the mastercraft of Moscow's Beard In Dust and Poland's Karol Alexander for three songs to soundtrack your Summer time. Each smacks of sublime breaks and Balearic keys. The deep slo-mo groove of "So Lonely" featuring those 808 State style bird calls, the '70s NYC soul jam that is "Jesienny Pan" and of course the lo-slung and dubby "Przyslowia" which is perfect to get stoned into the groove: we actually dug this one the most!

Thoma Cher - "Fright Night" - (7:14) 105 BPM
Review: Whiskey Disco's latest four-track salvo acts as a showcase for two long-term friends of the label and occasional contributors. Osmose handles the virtual A-side, enthusiastically jumping in at the deep end via the muscular, peak-time San Francisco disco pump of "My Body" before reaching for the crunchy Clavinet lines on dubbed-out, mid-tempo roller "Oh Midnight". Not to be outdone, Thoma Cher brilliantly loops up and teases out a familiar disco favourite on the peak-time bounce of "All You Need" (once the vocal drops, you'll have whipped your shirt off and be dancing on the nearest table) before unveiling a fantastic impression of The Revenge (circa his early slo-mo disco-house outings) on the hazy and hypnotic "Fright Night".

Review: Detroit's Pontchartrain is back on Whiskey Disco, the label that he most certainly calls home. Here we get new single Date Night, which features three top notch jams, starting with "Lambrusco". Not a cheap, hangover inducing holiday drink, it is in fact a exceptionally edited string-laden disco beauty that cleverly swells from warm and deep beginnings into blissed out joy. Next "Ayeeho", features delayed percussion, electro-disco bass and a compelling fusion of Afro and East Asian melodies. Lastly "Nice N Slow" is ironically a fast 'n' furious retro boogie belter complete with manic clavinet action and divas galore.

Review: Those with long memories may remember soul singer Maysa Leak's cover of Gil Scott-Heron classic "The Bottle"; the Incognito-produced cut was something of an underground club favourite when it first surfaced back in 1999. This first digital download edition boasts all of the mixes featured on the now in-demand vinyl edition, though it's the original full length version - a sunshine-friendly mixture of rich, jazz-funk informed musicality, slick house beats and spine-tingling vocals - that still shines brightest. Of the alternative versions, we're particularly enjoying the fuzzy, nu-disco style rub from DJ Shaft, though Venom and Ski Oakenful's "Black Widow" mix - a crunchy, West London style broken beat outing full of moody chords and bustling bass - is especially potent.

Review: Israel's Rabo & Snob don't tend to release that much material, but when they do it's nearly always on the mighty Whiskey Disco, and it's also almost always good. The Let You Know EP keeps the home fires burning, as its features four strong-as-an-ox disco jams. The title track features slammin' 4/4 drums, incessant funky bassline and overall Tensnake-esque slick vibe. Elsewhere "Cue" is moody Italo-disco of epic proportions, "So Hard To Reach" has a pumping early hi-NRG vibe (think Gino Soccio at his campest) and finally "Do It" wraps things up with a sizzling slice of looped French Touch-style tough house. A strong return from Rabo & Snob!

Review: Mexico's Tomas Malos has steadily risen amongst the ranks of the nu-disco scene thanks to a consistent string of warm and textured tunes. Here he's back with The Sunken Boat Party on Whiskey Disco. "Life Vest" features the distant refrains of a man overboard, swept away by deep, looping waves of slo-mo disco. Next, the saucy, string-laden grooves of "Castaway Three-Way" implies that he's survived the ordeal...and then some! Finally "Tuesday Booty" is a jovial beach party jam, implying he's been either rescued or enjoying no being found. Also Leftside Wobble thrown a 303 into the mix for a clubbier rework.

Is It Disco? EP

Thoma Cher - "Something About" - (7:15) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
JP Soul & Anthony Mansfield - "Warlord" - (5:34) 119 BPM
Review: For the latest offering from the Whiskey Disco stable, Is It Disco?, label boss Sleazy McQueen has decided on making it a 'more the merrier' affair. As a result we get six disco heads over the course of 4 tracks. Olivier Boogie kicks off with the edgy and live vibes of the Michael Zager-style anthem "No Goodbye", the neon arpeggios of Alkalino's Italo-disco jam, "Cosmic Disko" and the hazy, afternoon heatwave Balearica of "Something About" by Thoma Cher.

Played by: FINGERMAN, 80's Child
Review: Holiday 80's 2015 debut for Whiskey Disco was something of a treat, so expectations are naturally high for this belated follow-up. Like its predecessor, Mokotuff sees the producer breathe new life into forgotten and little-known Polish disco cuts. This time round, he begins with the elastic slap bass, spiraling synthesizer melodies and glistening guitars of "Truncheon Man" before dropping a chunk of drowsy Balearic house-meets-eccentric disco brilliance in the shape of "Male Jeziora". Arguably even better is the dewy-eyed beauty of "Letnia Misosc", a rework of an early '80s two-step soul shuffler complete with AOR style female vocals, jaunty pianos and swirling chords. Best of all, though, is closer "Zuhas Jmara", which unhelpfully defies easy categorization. We can tell you, though, that includes some killer trumpet action.

Review: A heavyweight amongst the re-edit scene, Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco label is back with some seriously sizzling boogie. First up is Rastanils who delivers his 2016 edit of "What You Are". It's a pumped up late 70s jam, full of elastic bass, hysterical strings and passionate vocals. Next is "I Like It" by Corsican Brothers and it's a gem of deep, early 80s electronic boogie, with the synth bass tweaked and brought to the fore of the mix. "Disco Chopper" sees Albion tackle a super-obscure Italo Disco robot rocker and it's back to the 70s for the raunchy, bluesy funk of "Big Time" by RuleFinn.

Review: For their latest missive, Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco label has paired two re-edit veterans; Pontrain and The Silver Rider. The former is very much on a 'Paris 97' vibe with "What You Doin To Me" being a joyous French Touch-style jam that weaves some slammin' filtered disco loops together and "Work It Alright", a powerful slice of passionate, housed-up soul. The latter also provides two quality jams: the slick, cocktail-fuelled disco-house of "Muzik", and the low-slung, elastic bass-driven Balearic grooves of "Never Stop".

Review: Some eighteen months after it first dropped on wax, Whiskey Disco's brilliant Disco Galaxie EP finally gets a digital download release. Given the quality on show, it should be an essential purchase for any club-focused disco DJ. The real killer is Kon's "Promised Land" edit, a thrillingly epic re-arrangement of a long slung, bass-driven disco monster that slowly builds to a dubbed-out crescendo over nine mesmerizing minutes. Elsewhere, Jacques Renault's "Disco Galaxie" is an authentic scalpel rework of a swirling, string-laden space disco stomper, while Love Dance moves towards Philadelphia Soul territory on the impassioned disco hustle of "Who Is He".

Review: Whisky Disco invite a trio of fresh faces to their ever-growing talent troupe for the Disco Darling EP. Andy Ash takes the lead with a loopy, strutting slice of sample-laced house that wouldn't go amiss in a Mark Farina set while Vincenzo De Bull & Halve Soul lower the tempo, invite us on a Balearic picnic and insist we gobble up huge chunks of Sade's "Cherry Pie". Deeper into the EP we find firm label friends Rabo & Snob laying down a velvet bed of Rhodes and vocal harmonies before the final label newcomer JP Source plays a slo-mo game of sample patty-cake with loopy disco mischief.

First is the pumping Italo-disco fizz of "You Get By", which is turned into slinky peep-show grooves by Love Dance. Elsewhere we get the muscular disco rock of "Believe" and last but not least the elastic bass arpeggiations and percolating synths of "Together". Ace.

Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco label seems to be on fire at present, with new EPs of white-hot edits appearing on an almost weekly basis. Predictably, there's more high-grade material on this latest split artist four-tracker. Pontchartain kicks things off with a brilliantly dubbed-out take on Gayle Adams classic "Lifesaver" (previously successfully extended and re-touched by FLX One a few years back), before Osmose delivers organ solos, orgasmic groans and rump shaking beats on "Broadway Kiss". Derek Kaye's "Holdin' On", a deliciously celebratory number full of cheery scat vocals and incessant grooves, and "I Got Your Wang", a cheery, sun-kissed chunk of disco perfection from Rulefinns Kravstor.

Review: Thanks to the sterling work done by the Very Polish Cut-Outs series, we're now all familiar with the previously hidden world of eccentric Eastern European disco. Now that label is no more, fellow Poles Holiday 80 are keen to continue its' good work. The Hotel Victoria EP contains fantastic reworks of four obscure, Balkan disco treats. It's packed with smashers from start to finish; check, for example, the acid-laden, muscular disco-strut of "Teleniedziela", the spiraling, rock-tinged camp of the charged-up "Zabawa W Stylu Folk", and the shuffling, filter-heavy sweetness of early '80s gem "Kta Dat Nam Deszcz". Best of all, though, is the American style disco-funk hustle of "Bez Tego I Owego", which contains some particularly wild organ solos.

Review: This collaborative EP featuring reworks by Whiskey Disco boss Sleazy McQueen and fellow Florida resident Romano Arcaini first appeared on vinyl almost a year ago. Since then, prices for second hand copies have gone through the roof, making this digital download edition particularly welcome. It's undoubtedly a very strong collection of re-edits, too. Not only does it boast the ten-minute trip into life-affirming disco territory that is "Peace, Love & Harmony" - think swinging drum breaks, strong vocals, phased funk guitars and twinkling pianos - but also a killer chunk of saucer-eyed Italo-disco sleaze ("Disco De Monda"). The final track, a Clavinet-heavy warm-up shuffler entitled "Private Life", is also killer.

Review: Disco Meze is the latest platter served up by Sleazy McQueen's evergreen Whiskey Disco operation, and it's a various artists affair with contributions from Vinyladdicted, Jean Claude Gavri, Pixelated, Alkalino, and The Silver Rider. It's Vinyladdicted and Seaside Edits don Gavri who are first up with a lovingly filtered exercise in peak time disco with "NYM" - just wait for that synth solo to burst out!! Up next, Pixelated goes deep into the disco with the fine "Caught Up In The Rapture" which is pretty much an endless tease, whilst "Day To Day" from Alkalino could easily be laid over a bumping DJ tool. The Silver Rider's effort, "Hidden Rung", will appeal to fans of the Whitney tweak Genius of Time did a few years back.

Review: Icelander-in-Oslo BG Baarregaard has so far proved adept at releasing both re-edits and original productions, along the way delivering EPs for Paper Disco, Disco Volante and Whiskey Disco. This EP sees him return to the latter with a trio of sparkling, floor-friendly re-edits. Choose between the dashing synth-boogie explorations of the proto-Metro Area slickness that is "Disco Inn", the delay-heavy, dubbed-out P-funk explorations of "Undercover Lover", and our pick of the trio, "Kaffibarinn". The genius of this latter track lies in its' tasty use of subtly changing TB-303 bass, clipped disco guitars, and twinkling deep house flourishes. It's musically hard to pin down, but sounds like a genuine floor-filler in the making.

Review: This debut edits EP from Israeli disco duo Rabo & Snob first appeared on wax back in 2014, and here makes it to digital download for the first time. It sees the Tel Aviv twosome deliver a trio of effortlessly groovy, mid-tempo reworks that seemingly bristle with sunny intent. Opener "Here We Come" excites in part due to the tasty combination of hustling Clavinet lines and starry synth-work (though the swinging rhythm below is also rock solid), while "Baci" sees them reaching for the strobe via a trippy, Italo-influenced groove, sweaty percussion hits, and sweeping, tops-off strings. Best of all, though, is the hypnotic bounce, rubbery bass and sultry, late night sensuality of killer closer "Everybody Knows It".

Review: Whiskey Disco has labelled its latest recruits, the strangely named Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, as "enigmatic". Whoever's behind the alias, they know a thing or two about crafting alluring and dancefloor-friendly re-edits. Starter "Try My Love" is more than a mere aperitif, delivering a potent blend of eyes-closed, soul-flecked disco goodness, chunky bottom-end swing and a sprinkling of filter-heavy seasoning. "Miracles" is very much the main course, expertly cutting, splicing and rearranging the Jackson Sisters' infamous disco anthem into a remorseless dancefloor roller. Finally, there's a little sugary-sweet dessert in the form of "Tonight", a sleek and spellbinding disco number whose bold pianos and occasional vocal hits leave a delicious after-taste.

Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco imprint continues to be one of the more reliable sources of disco and boogie re-edits. Rather predictably, this latest installment in the series is bristling with high-grade dancefloor material. There's some riotous, party-minded disco-funk from newcomer Scott M, who delivers a killer touch-up of Vernon Burnch's "Get Up", and a thrillingly low-slung chunk of rolling disco-house from VinylAddicted and SMQ. While Pontcharain also provides a tightened-up, filter-heavy tweak of France Joli's Prelude classic "Gonna Get Over You" - heavy on the delay, and with the urgent hustle of house - it's the contribution from Canadian stalwart Eddie C that stands out. A smooth, midtempo cut-up of a lesser-known rollerboogie jam, it rises and falls in all the right places.

He's previously released both original productions and re-edits, with two contributions to a split Lumberjacks In Hell release back in 2012 standing out. Here he returns - at long last - with an edit EP of his own for Whiskey Disco. There's naturally much to admire, from the soaring strings, undulating bass and disco-funk hustle of "Got To Have Loving" and jaunty Rodriguez re-rub "Can't Get Away" being particularly potent. He also delivers a dash of head-nodding boogie ("You Know Who"), and turns a little-known funk jam into a shuffling house hustler ("Lost In The Crowd").

That's good news for us and fans of high quality laid back palm tree disco jams everywhere. There are four tracks here, each of which takes a different direction, from filtered slo-mo disco-house loops ("Ghetto Woman") to weirded out samples over hypnotic shuffles ("Psychodelic Woman"), but our fave is the breezy, disco-drenched yacht rock of "Crying Woman".
