Review: Chop Shop return with another powerful party punch from three artists who've all established solid groove ties with the Greek imprint over recent years. There's a strong twang of the broken beat on both Ten Different and Levantine's offerings. The former digs deep for a little disco dust and break that comes out of nowhere and allows a whole gamut of percussion to enter the fray. The latter goes straight for a rusty old detuned synth rave hook and adds a little cosmic chug. Finally big pimping Vince closes shop with a sprightly filtered house jacker with big full-frontal vocal. Choppy choppy!
Review: Stephane Deschezeaux's French nu-disco label (est 2012) bring us their latest V/A collection, which gather together 15 of their most recent slices of contemporary disco, funk and boogie, with the emphasis overall slightly on the latter. HP Vince, arguably the best-known of the label's regular artists, brings us two cuts, driving disco-houser 'Be What You Wanna Be' and boogie-flavoured Le Babar collab 'Baby You', while C. da Afro makes an appearance with 'Disco Fever', an Afro-tinged homage to Chic's 'Dance, Dance, Dance'. The standout for this reviewer, is Henry Navarro's sultry, female-vocalled take on Stevie Wonder classic 'All I Do', which would work on nu-disco and soulful house floors alike.
