Review: Sorry, no slow and dark Belgian New Beat here, as this is a whole different kettle of 'Body Music'. Instead we have a satisfying selection of delicious disco and house gems. Here renowned Brooklyn re-edit label Razor-N-Tape have rustled up quite an EP led by the original mix of "Just One", an enrapturing loop of Chic-era guitars, pianos and soulful vocals. The Lay-Far remix is a soft, deep and dreamy excursion. The Drum mix of "Get It Baby" recalls the early boogie synth of Patrick Cowley, while Patchwork goes for pure analogue disco and Wurli drops a killer electronic space-house joint.
Review: If it's authentically 70s-sounding disco grooves you seek, then know that nothing in this reviewer's Juno inbox this week has come closer than this five-tracker from Sunner Soul. The rest of the world may currently be obsessed with all things cosmic and Italo, but the St Petersburg native (here, at least) is still all about the handclaps, whoops, strings, cowbells, and jive-talkin' vocal snatches. All five near-instrumental cuts are quite similar in approach, but check out 'Smooth Surface' for a full-phat bassline and fine Moog-y sounds, and 'Body Groove' for a lil' boogie-esque squelch and some excellent 'pyoww! pyoww!' stabs.
