Review: For the latest volume in their popular Disco Funkin' compilation strand, Bomb Strikes has handed over curation duties to rising star and Midnight Riot regular Natasha Kitty Katt. The Edinburgh DJ/producer's selections are undeniably addictive and on-point, moving between heavyweight re-edits (see her collaboration with Twisted Soul Collective, 'Twisted Katt', solo disco-funk tweak 'Edgarr!' and Oliver Boogie's slamming 'Dance Band'), superior nu-disco originals (Phoenix's piano-heavy 'Nature Dance', Fouk's sample-heavy 'Cat Lady' and the slick boogie revivalism of Lovebirds' 'Give Me a Sign') and loopy disco-house treats (the contributions from Shaka Loves You, Birdee, Hotmood and Mark Lower). Those looking for fresh dancefloor ammunition will find much to enjoy, while the Scottish DJ's accompanying mix is as entertaining and excitable as they come.
Review: On 'House Party Vol. 3' the party continues well into autumn with Toolroom's unmistakable blend of killer cuts, red hot exclusives and a host of essential tracks from the industry's leading imprints. Includes a whopping 80 tracks, plus three compiled mixes from current scene favourites such as Kittball co-owners Tube & Berger, Dutch house favourite Rene Amesz, and rising UK talent Iglesias. Highlights not limited to: boss man Mark Knight with the aforementioned Amesz on the funky house anthem "All 4 Love" (feat. Tasty Lopez), Hannah Wants & Eskuche serve up some slick and bouncy electro house on "The ISH", the dream team of Alex Mills, Danny Howard & Illyus & Barrientos delivering a properly soul-infused vocal epic on "Need" (Extended Mix) and the legend ATFC returns with the super sexy "Not Enough" feat. Mia Mendez.
Review: The mighty Anjunabeats are on fire of late, and this latest release raises the temperature even higher. Label regulars and Cosmic Gate favourites Nitrous Oxide follow previous smashes 'Dreamcatcher', 'North Pole', and 'Wonder' with another serving of beautifully captivating trance. 'Follow You' features the vocal talents of Aneym, hot on the heels of collaborations with Tenishia. You can always expect Anjuna to deliver on the remix front and here they let Maor Levi loose who adds a housier edge, while keeping plenty of force to raise the roof.
Review: Here is a selection of the finest reworks and remixes from the two most definitive disco labels. Thriving in the New York club scene of the 70's and 80's, West End is the definitive disco label, alongside the equally legendary New York City label Salsoul Records.

In this collection you'll find versions by remix extraordinaires like Tom Moulton and Shep Pettibone, NYC legends Danny Tenaglia and Masters At Work, Aussie veterans Late Nite Tuff Guy and Dr. Packer, as well as Dimitri From Paris, Joey Negro, Michael Gray and many more across 30 tracks.
