We don't know much about Black Magic Disco, other that he's based in London and makes funk-laden electroboogie tackle that sounds like classic Jam & Lewis productions given a contemporary nudisco makeover. It's this retro-futurist attention to detail - think bright '80s soul synth riffs, crisp guitars and booming synth-bass - that makes "Downtown" worthy of your attention. The same can also be said of the unashamedly touchy-feely "First Avenue", which is positively Balearic in its rush-inducing approach (it even features a sneaky sonic reference to Maze's "Twilight"). A trio of solid remixes complete a good package, with Satin Jackets' bubbling '80s synth-funker and Odahl's Daft Punk-do-boogie tweak standing out.
