Review: With his previous disco re-edits for German imprint Replay, Frico has usually dug a bit deeper, sourcing more obscure material. This time round though he's going straight for Loose Joints' tried and tested "Is It All Over My Face", and due to his decision to really only make it slightly dubbier, gets away with it. "Together For Ever" re-jigs Exodus' 1979 disco classic and makes the most of its frenetic Latino percussion and hyper elasticized bassline.
Review: Few outfits in the nu-disco scene are quite as experienced as Mirror People. The Lisbon-based trio has been serving up colourful, floor-ready treats for the best part of a decade, though this EP on band member Rui Maia's Belong Records imprint might be their best collection of cuts to date. Covering Loose Joints classic "Is It All Over My Face" is fraught with danger, but we can confirm that they've done a terrific job, primarily by retaining the wonky looseness and dub-flecked quirkiness of the Arthur Russell/Steve D'Aquisto original. Elsewhere, they provide a chunkier disco cover of Ralphi Rosario's early Chicago house classic "You Used To Hold Me" (here titled "Hold Me"), pay tribute to John Carpenter soundtracks on "Taste of Murder" and go all jaunty and spacey on the arpeggio-driven sleaze of "What Is Luv?".
