The Velvet Stripes are a contemporary duo who hail from Puebla in Mexico... which surprised us, because on first hearing this EP we were sure it just HAD to be a reissue of some obscure Japanese disco nugget from the late 70s. Which is, of course, another way of saying that if you're after some fresh but authentic-sounding disco grooves with the kinda off-kilter feel, Latin-y/lounge-y flourishes and hints of bubblegum that disco from non-Anglophone countries often tended to have, you'll struggle to find much better this month than the 'Sugar Disco Baby EP'.
