Review: File Under Disco's "100% original disco music" remit is refreshing in these days of countless re-edits and sample-heavy nu-disco mash-ups. Their latest salvo comes from London's Oh Yeah, whose trademark sound effortlessly blends live drums, bass, guitars, keys and vocals. "Nothing But The Beat" is a strong debut, sitting somewhere between sharp, Chic-style disco, hazy jazz-funk and early '90s acid jazz. The remix package is notably strong, too, with Crazy P man Hot Toddy delivering a pair of reworks. On both he toughens things up a little and adds a few dub disco flourishes, whilst retaining the band's wonderful instrumentation. His Dub, in particular, is superb.
Review: File Under Disco: releasing 100% original disco since 2012. Their latest release is by Oh Yeah, who produced the massive "Nothing But The Beat" last year which included a mighty Hot Toddy remix. Now they deliver yet another dancefloor weapon of a track: it's reminiscent of classic Michael Jackson or '80's Motown. Remixes are by Perth's finest Dr Packer: two in fact. The first injects much more funk and dancefloor dynamics into the track, while the dub mix does exactly what it says on the tin. New Zealand's Frank Booker is in top form as always, getting that soulful '70s vibe on and finally Razor 'N Tape's Dicky Trisco & JKriv go for a New York City circa '83 kinda joint: which will take you back to the days of Studio 54.
Review: Let There Be House & In It Together Records are proud to announce their huge label collaboration, in the form of this massive 60 track compilation containing 30 album only exclusives. 'The Anthology 2020' is a result of both labels having huge success over the past 12 months, with highlights coming from: Born2Groove with the low slung disco goodness of "Happiness", legend Sandy Rivera (with Aruhtra) on the bittersweet and soulful anthem "Love Somebody Else", the return of '90s funky house's glory days on "Piano Groove" by Makree (Sebb Junior Remix) and label chief In It Together's electrifying "Hey Mr DJ" (with Alimish). This essential album comes complete with four continuous bonus mixes by the boss men: two by Glen Horsborough (LTBH) and another couple by Jas P (IITR).
