Review: Veteran Greek producer Alien Disco Sugar (aka DJ Leonidas) has kept the heat on since he relocated to London a while back. Here he drops his sixth single in just five months, the I Like The Funk EP, and like the funk he does over four juicy deep cuts. Things begin on a high with sizzling opener, the tight new-wave disco of "I Like The Funk", then the twang-bass orgy "Wide Open Baby" saunters into view. We switch to dry-ice heavy, mid-80s synth soul on "In Luv" and things close with the tough funk stomper "Gimmie Some Action". Job done.
Review: Whiskey Disco has labelled its latest recruits, the strangely named Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, as "enigmatic". Whoever's behind the alias, they know a thing or two about crafting alluring and dancefloor-friendly re-edits. Starter "Try My Love" is more than a mere aperitif, delivering a potent blend of eyes-closed, soul-flecked disco goodness, chunky bottom-end swing and a sprinkling of filter-heavy seasoning. "Miracles" is very much the main course, expertly cutting, splicing and rearranging the Jackson Sisters' infamous disco anthem into a remorseless dancefloor roller. Finally, there's a little sugary-sweet dessert in the form of "Tonight", a sleek and spellbinding disco number whose bold pianos and occasional vocal hits leave a delicious after-taste.
