  1. Melvin Bliss - "Syntheic Substitution" (extended Break edit) (3:50)
  2. Sweet Daddy Floyd - "I Just Can't Help Myself" (extended Break edit) (4:17)
Review: This tasty, DJ-friendly 7" single boasts two extended, break-heavy reworks of obscure and in-demand soul workouts. On the A-side you'll find a tasty extension of Melvin Bliss's superb, piano-heavy 1983 cut "Synthetic Substitution". While Bliss's brilliant original - all heartfelt vocals, jaunty keys and warm bass - is largely kept in tact, the mystery re-editor naturally makes more of the opening breakbeat, which was sampled several times during hip-hop's "golden era". Flip for a similarly tasty rearrangement of Sweet Daddy Floyd's 1978 Blaxploitation style disco-funk shuffler "I Just Can't Help Myself", a cut rich in rolling breaks, densely layered percussion, punchy orchestration and "Shaft"-style guitar licks.

Review: Only Krivit has the balls, clout and creative skills to bring a breakdown to life in the way he's magically revisioned "Street Life". Extending the smooth string sweeps, gliding bass and Crawford's vocal freestyles into a majestic work of its own, it's one of Krivit's most demanded secret weapons. Flip for a swashbuckling honkytonking piano slapping take on Roy Meriwether's "Nubian Lady" where the groove is pushed well into next year with a perfect rolling break. Sheer edit magic.

  2. Keep Your Head Alright (RUNEX Zapped Up mix) (4:10)
Review: More DJ-friendly cut-ups and mash-ups from the Dusty Donuts camp, whose modus operandi seems to be the pursuit of dancefloor carnage. Naughty NMX is the producer at the controls on side A, delivering a "Cali Mix" of "All Eyes on Lovin" that effortlessly joins the dots between woozy sunshine disco, sugary soul and punchy electrofunk. It's the sort of track that will sound superb booming out of sound systems at sun-baked daytime parties. RUNEX handles the B-side, underpinning elements from a couple of similarly saucer-eyed blue-eyed cuts with punchy, hip-hop style beats and well-placed effects. It's effectively yacht rock for the MPC generation, which is no bad thing in our book.

The Conversation (7" Nachpressung)
Cat: ERC 011. Rel: 12 Jun 17
  1. The Conversation
  2. The Conversation (version)
Review: REPRESS ALERT: With just one 7" release to their name in the form of the 1981 release, Jive Baby On A Saturday Night, the cult of The Jellies was possibly accidentally assured with the long lost song being rediscovered by collectors and championed by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore no less. Picked up and reissued by the stellar Trunk Records in 2010, the B-side cut, however, was sadly overlooked. Now Emotional Rescue are proud to license The Conversation and remaster it especially for this rerelease. Based around a simple drum and bass rhythm, interspersed with crowd noise, playful female vocal yelps and sprinkled with dub effects thrown in to the mix and you wouldn't probably think too much would be going for a track that the band put together in the last two hours of their studio time after Jive Baby had been completed. However, what you get is a killer gem of pop-punk-dub oddness that gets your head nodding to its infectious, repetitive rhythm laden with effects. With just this one (perfect) track available for license it seemed only right to hand it over to the in-house production team, Apophenia, to do their increasingly trademark dubbed out reworking, this time in the form of a true, but respectful "Version" for the flip. With both members of The Jellies sadly now living overseas this piece of early '80s British dub as it were, can now be fully treasured for posterity while also, proving a nice little smokers delight.

  3. Star Of The Story (6:17)
Review: Anyone that's seen Boston selector Kon spin in the past few years should pull up to the bumper and spend some time with this third transmission on his Star Time label. Centre stage is his much requested treatment of the George Benson standard "Give Me The Night" re-titled here as "Spirit Of The Party (Gimme The Night)" which rearranges proceedings to pull the original's closing harmony-based breakdown to the midpoint. Excellent stuff! Kon is a generous man however and there are two further edits on the flip to make this a triple trouble 12". "Love x Kon" is a stripped down to the bone rework with an almighty acapella-based finale, whilst "Star Of The Story" is all about that boogie filled electric bassline.

Review: Out Of The Blue, Phil Mison's first compilation for some time, was apparently inspired by his first few trips to the White Isle of Ibiza, and specifically the unlikely set of circumstances that led to him filling in for Jose Padilla at Cafe Del Mar. Musically, it's reflective of the story, joining the dots between impossible-to-find rarities (see the loved-up instrumental jazz-rock of "Jelly" by The Cactus Rose Project and the life-affirming fusion business of Christoph Spendel Group's "Forever", for starters), huggable Balearic synth-pop, flamenco-inspired sunset gems, and a smattering of head-in-the-clouds Italian dream house killers. Given Mison's heritage and status as one of Balearica's top selectors, it's perhaps unsurprising that Out Of The Blue is undeniably brilliant.

Review: Kevin Gorman aka Adesse Versions brings his cut and paste ethos to Brooklyn edit series Razor-N-Tape with a varied pair of heaters. On this wicked two tracker, the label takes it back to their early format of one track per side: and these two cuts can certainly carry it! On this side we've got "Bumpin' NYC" a lo-slung disco classic with that proper New York City vibe, if ya catch our drift? On that side, we have a lovely little number in the form of "Sistem" that flips an afrobeat sample into a dark and groovy club track with even a little bit of acid for good measure.

Review: The latest dig from Best Record Italy's eternal mission to release the finest Roman musical manna features noted jazz man Pino Presti taking on Manu Dibango's eternal party jam "Soul Makossa". Presti's interpretation uses oodles of gleaming 80s synths in place of the original traditional instrumentation, but fear not as the iconic brass section remains a real-world force, and sounds mighty fresh with it. Following up that cover is a sumptuous version of "Ain't No Sunshine" which is aimed square at the heartstrings of the most Balearic cruisers. "I Call Your Name / Come Back To Me" gets even smoother, the vocals capturing Mediterranean getaway romance to perfection.

Review: In 1981, Macedonian singer Arian Krliu headed over to New York to record a bilingual album of disco and boogie treats. The resultant set was self-released in relatively limited qualities and has since gone in to become an in-demand item amongst collectors of global disco and synth-pop sounds. This officially licensed reissue stretches the album's original eight tracks over two slabs of wax to allow for a louder, DJ-friendly pressing. Record one boasts Arian's English language recordings; the sumptuous AOR disco of "Your Love Makes Me A Winner", the punchy, horn-heavy disco-bogie brilliance of "Can't Say Goodbye", the K.I.D style dancefloor badness of "Sure It's Funky" and blue-eyed soul of "Still Together". Over on disc two, you'll find Croatian language versions of the same tracks.

  1. Kettle America (7:18)

  3. Without Rob (5:46)
Review: Razor 'N' Tape's two previous servings of Dimitri From Brooklyn edits (and, yes, they're the work of legendary DJ/producer Dimitri From Paris) were both must-haves, so hopes are naturally high for this third volume. Predictably, the disco-loving Frenchman is on fine form once more, laying down a trio of interpretations that breathe new life into classic jams. While the A-side "Kettle America" (say it phonetically) is something of a cheeky treat - impressively chopping between hard-wired guitar riffs and the original track's bustling disco groove - it's "I Knead You", an end-of-night, lights-up version of a Sylvester cut that smartly emphasizes the song's gospel origins, that really sparkles. "Without Rob", a harmonica-heavy rearrangement of a well-known favourite, completes another essential package.

Review: Kon and Reflex combine for a cheeky 12" dedication to Michael Jackson for the fourth release on the Boston selector's increasingly on point Star Time label. Edit heaven or what? Reflex calls shotgun and reworks "PYT", amping up the vibe with much crisper drums and a whole lot more space present on that classic chorus drop. Meanwhile on the flip King Of Nothing takes "Get On The Floor" and gives it a modern day party refix complete with full-bodied dynamics, juicy slap bass and very cheeky disco bubbles in the background. Two more essential Michael Jackson edits to add to your collection.

Review: Eccentric, California-based imprint Take Away has put out some impressive 12" singles since launching earlier in the year. Predictably, this two-tracker from the little-known Soul Reductions is another stone cold killer. A-side "Got To Be Loved" - a bouncy, pitched-up disco-house floorfiller that sits somewhere between Tiger & Woods and late '90s "French Touch" house - leads the way, sounding like the kind of cut that will quickly raise the temperature out on the dancefloor. Flipside "A Rose Is A Rose" is a deeper and woozier offering, delivering a rolling house re-interpretation of a boogie-era electrofunk gem with added filter effects.

It's just what the man does best, and he's likely to continue churning out eats and new productions on a constant basis for the foreseeable future. This is the third part of his Unofficial Edits Overdubs & Unreleased Remixes, and it all starts with the moody, soul-induced lament of "You Owe Me", followed by the livelier and more danceable disco banger "Pass It On". On the flip, "Never Danced Before" is a banging little revisioning of the cult disco hit, and "Queen Africa" breaks out the jazz horns to come through with an 11 minute journey that will please everyone from the house heads to the soul divas. Yes, Joe!

  4. OCGC (6:06)
Review: It would be fair to say that Morgan Geist's Megaprojects series is an attempt to go "back to basics". Not only are the tracks created using - in his words - "cheap drum machines and vintage synths", but also pay tribute to some of his earliest inspirations. In practice, that means doffing a cap to fluid and ear-pleasing early deep house on the glistening "Manic Cinq", pitched-down Italo-disco and bass-heavy early British techno ("Fuzzy Detail") and tactile, breakbeat-driven late '80s house (the rather wonderful "Buy Freedom"). Arguably best of all, though, is closer "OCGC", whose psychedelic acid lines, tactile synth bass and cheery synth melodies make the track sound like a cross between vintage Metro Area and Orbital's "Halcyon".

Review: Chicagoan DJ/producer Jamie 3:26 has long been regarded as one of the edit scene's brightest talents, with fine outings on Local Talk and Lumberjacks in Hell only enhancing his credentials. Happily, this two-tracker on G.A.M.M could well be his strongest release to date. A-side "Blessing" is a brilliantly teased-out revision of a stomping disco-soul anthem, which rises, falls and rises again magnificently over 12 mesmerizing minutes. Arguably even better, though, is his Ron Hardy inspired rework of a well-known Italo-disco cover version of Led Zepellin's "Whole Lotta Love". The Chicagoan expertly works the track hard for nearly 15 minutes, alternating between sleazy vocal passages and the throbbing, sleazy instrumentation.

Review: REPRESS ALERT: As Emotional Rescue continues to deliver the goods for those who love discofied rarities from the 70s and 80s, here comes this EP from Kevin Harrison, originally released in 1982 and worth a pretty penny second hand. It's a wistful, proggy kind of groove that finds Harrison's voice lost in an alien phaser while the live band feel gels with synthesiser parts for a fluid kind of cosmic goodness. There's simply no arguing with the plush melodic wonderment of "Views Of The Rhine", while "Fly" is the jam the party DJs will reach for, not least for its slinky bassline. Amazing.

Review: For those of a certain age, Gwen McRae's "All This Love That I'm Givin" will always evoke memories of Cassius' French Touch classic "Feeling For You", which sampled it heavily. It remains a killer record in its' own right, though, as this timely reissue proves. Originally released in 1979, it sees McRae at her powerful best, delivering a potent message to an errant lover over a killer, low-slung disco-funk groove. It's one of the tracks that should really be in any discerning funk, soul or disco DJ's collection. Flip for original B-side "Maybe I'll Find Somebody New", a breezier chunk of laidback soul with a slightly Southern lilt. It's good, but pales into insignificance compared to the brilliant 'A' side.

Review: Since launching back in 2015, the Dewaele brothers' Waffles series has been responsible for some of the best re-edits around. The series' genius lies not in the floor-friendly nature of the showcased reworks - that goes without saying - but in the unashamedly weird and wonderful source material the Belgian siblings choose to play around with. Few will know the original version of "Poland Waffle", a sludgy and sleazy mutant disco workout full of heavy, dub disco style bass, hypnotic drums, alien electronics and a half-sung, half-whispered vocal refrain ("Red light... blue light"). As for "Croatia White", you'll struggle to find a more muscular and mind-altering chunk of post-Italo European disco. In other words, this serving of Waffles is every bit as tasty as its predecessors.

Both authentic and hugely respectful to the original, this is effectively an edit masterclass that we all need to pay attention to.

First up is Philou Louzolo and his excellent "Afrofuturism Dance", a solid house jerker with lively tribal influences, folloed siftly by Wendel Sield and his moodier, jazzier piece entitled "History Of Black People". On the flip, Huntleys & Palmers MMT proceeds to drop some Gipsy King house in the form of "Ton A Ton", backed by the more funky disco shades of "Pangae Flute". Nice and diverse for ya!

Review: REPRESS ALERT: From the label: "This EP is a dedication to the Amsterdam based Alkebulan Project. Philou and Villy are both members of this project, the project brings artists from Africa & African Diaspora together. The Alkebulan Project is on a mission to change the perception of Africa an it's citizens. Nigerian artist Villy and his group "Villy & The Xtreme Volumes" are on a mission to educate Africans with their message calling for a revolution in Africa, politically and socially in all aspects. Philou has a combination of Congolese, Nigerian and Sierra Leonean heritage and it is in these roots that he has built his sound. His passion for the continent of his ancestors is fervent and his projects are challenging commonly held preconceptions about Africa. His goal is to challenge negative stereotypes, by making African cultures more approachable through music. Much love for Rudy Asibey for founding The Alkebulan Project and bringing the artists together and many thanks to Marcel Vogel for giving us the opportunity to tell our story through."

Review: J.A.K.A.M is Japanese artist Takashige Miyawaki, a long standing producer commonly found on Crosspoint Records. On this release for the ever intriguing Malka Tuti label Miyawaki draws on a thrilling spread of influences to make a truly soul-stirring track. At times the vocals lean towards a Middle Eastern lilt while the saxophone burns with the fire of the post punk era. With monolithic drum hits, yearning violin and plenty more besides, "Wabi Sabi" is a many-headed beast of a track. Moscoman takes the original and simmers it down to a more focused but no less exotic tribal house workout.

Review: We knew the Fortuna label was capable of delivering some high-quality output, but this new EP has truly taken us by surprise. The imprint have dub up the timeless music of Lebabon's Raja Zahr, an artist who, alongside the Turkish connection, revolutionised disco music and gave it an extra layer of Eastern charm. These three tracks are a collection of his best and most provocative tunes from the 1980s: "Drum Sequence", as the title suggests, is a drum-heavy, tribal-ridden, disco charmer with fiery electronic twists and turns around its edges; on the flipside, "Dabke" spins the entire formula on its head by delivering a truly oddball piece of pseudo disco that has a lot more in common with the leftfield scene of the modern day, and the rampant "A Drummer & A Dancer" takes the disco blueprint off-piste, and into more bizarre corners that showcase this enigmatic and charismatic artist's abilities. Warmly recommended.

Review: This EP marks a welcome return to Heist Recordings from Fouk, the deep house collaboration between Daniel Leseman and Hans Peeman. There's naturally much to admire throughout, from the rubbery disco bass, hustling house beats and intergalactic synths of opener "F3000", to the pleasingly loose beats, clattering percussion hits and hard-worn disco-funk grooves of "See You on the Other Side", via the warm and toasty boogie/house fusion of "With Lazers". Improvisation-loving combo Mount Liberation Unlimited steals the show with a loose, languid and deliciously deep interpretation of "See You on the Other Side" that seamlessly fuses the best of both their and Fouk's respective production styles.

Review: Crown Ruler Records co-founder Jeremy Spellacey is highly regarded within the crate-digging community, primarily for his ability to sniff out copies of obscure - but, naturally, high quality - boogie-era disco records from Africa and the Caribbean. On this fine compilation, Spacetalk has offered the New Zealander the opportunity to showcase some of those finds, alongside a smattering of better-known favourites and more recent cuts (see Mike Fabulous's overlooked modern boogie gem "Wang East"). Predictably, Spellacey has delivered the goods, serving up humid, exotic and loved-up gems galore, including the fluttering brilliance of Stimela's "I Love You", the marimba-laden Balearic boogie of Feladey's "Forest Music" and Devon Russell's impeccable reggae-soul cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Move on Up".

While a little loopy, the Brooklyn-based producer has craftily retained the sax-heavy swing of his original source material. On the flip Midnight Riot regular Joutro Mundo steals the show with "Caue", a superb edit of a vaguely familiar, string-laden chunk of AOR disco brilliance that subtly builds throughout.

Review: The latest missive from Sweden's fine Local Talk label is a multi-artist affair, with fine contributions from label regular Sameed, Chicago legend Jamie 3:26, and rising star Masalo. The latter two join forces on fabulous A-side "Testify", a low-slung, disco-tinged deep house bomb built around righteous rhythms, impassioned, gospel-influenced blues vocals, and killer Clavinet parts. On the flip, Sameed's first contribution is a riff on the same basic cut, utilizing the same samples but venturing further towards dirty, late night disco territory. He also provides a fine bonus in the shape of "Dusty Jazz", a sample-heavy jazz-house workout complete with wavering horns, rich bass and twinkling electric piano solos.

Review: Since launching at the tail end of 2015, Tokyo's Edit & Dub Recordings has released a string of rare previously unheard remixes and re-edits from disco titans Tee Scott and Larry Levan. This time round, they've unearthed what they claim to be a couple of ludicrously rare, previously promo-only disco mixes of Sylvester cuts that first appeared in their native Japan in 1978. On the A-side, you'll find a brilliantly upbeat, expertly extended version of "Over & Over" that flips between periods of screaming release and low-slung, groove-based thrills. Flip for the horn-heavy thrills of "Grateful", where Sylvester's impassioned pleas ride a typically high-octane disco rhythm. It's the kind of driving workout that's guaranteed to get dancers sweating out on the floor.

Review: The Difusion crew turned some heads last year with the low-key release of their first grip of cult edits, and now they're back with a second installment that keeps the source material obscure, the treatment respectful and the vibes pure and positive. "Someday" is a killer simmering slice of disco funk, while "On The Scene" slows things down and turns up the 70s bombast with Philly strings and brass blasts aplenty. "Freaksta" takes things in a more cosmic direction, while "Right Now" aims right for Studio 54 indebted flamboyance, all stirring diva vocals and bold production to get everyone freaking the right way.

Review: Over the past five years Velvet Season & The Hearts Of Gold have laid down all manner of sizzling disco edit grooves that veer into spaced out, cosmic territory, but on this new joint for Blue Velvet they aim for the jugular with an abundance of cheeky licks from familiar sources. "Angel Dust" is set to get all manner of parties going wild with its classic hooks, while "Turn Me On" takes a smoother approach into romantic climes with equally recognisable sounds repurposed for the modern dancefloor. The samples may be easy to spot, but that just makes this record's appeal even more universal.

Their love is so enduring that the dusty fingered editors/DJs/revered record collectors have gone so far as to found Fleetmac Wood, a club night dedicated to the work of Fleetwood, Nicks, McVie and the various other manifestations, where anything goes so long as it's Fleetwood Mac related. Their remix of "Dreams" has been getting playtime at the night - and by other well regarded DJs - and finally makes an appearance on this limited 12". What's immediately noticeable about the Crystal Visions Remix of "Dreams" is how much they add to the track without messing with the original's essence - it's also a lot more inventive than Psychemagik's 2009 edit of "Everywhere" which shows how far they've come in three years. Flip over for a great extension of Juno's favourite Mac moment "Big Love" from AOR Disco's Red Ken.

"Firedance" on the B-side channels some righteous 80s industrial and synth pop tropes to create it's own kind of drama, and then "Stardriver" finishes the EP off with some pulsing, noirish wave synths and gaseous atmospherics. With the styles shifting from track to track, Jonny 5 has once again done a sterling job of keeping his options open and keeping us locked expectantly into his delirious sound.

On the flip you'll find the jaunty, horn-heavy disco-funk bump of "Desire", a superb rework of a barely known, bilingual gem, and the spiraling Caribbean disco-funk insanity that is peak-time workout/synthesizer wig-out "Trinidad Duke". All three edits have been "secret weapons" for the dusty-fingered DJ for some time, and can now be yours for less than nine English pounds. What's not to like?

Review: Tropical Drums of Deutschland is an intriguing proposition. Put together by Jan Schulte, whose Wolf Muller project draws influence from exotic new age music and gentle global drum rhythms, the compilation focuses on "tropical" music made in and around Germany, most during the mid to late 1980s. It's a fascinating listen, but far more introspective and melancholic than you might expect. Of course, there are percussive tracks that feel dancefloor-friendly - see Argile's "Tagtraum Eines Eleganten", and Sanza's beguiling, drums-and-vocals workout "Sounouh" - but for the most part the material selected by Schulte (and, on a couple of occasions, re-edited) tends towards the horizontal. This is not meant as a criticism; if anything, it makes the collection a much more beguiling listen.

Italy's Aldo Vanucci and Del Gazeebo turn up sounding wild and soulful; the farmer's opening edit of "Bobby's Grapevine" does the Mo-Town tricks, while the latter's re-visioning of "Billy's Missus" gives the original 'hey, Mrs.Robison!' a nice little dance makeover.

Review: The latest volume in Rush Hour's Special Series focuses on the work of legendary - if under-appreciated - South African artist Senyaka Kekana, whose 1980s and early '90s output remains a firm favourite of open-minded crate-diggers. The EP brings together two tracks from impossible-to-find albums on 12" for the first time. On the A-side you'll find "Bayanyoyoba", a warm and rolling, chant-laden, mid-tempo deep house cut which originally featured on the artist's cassette-only 1993 set Ma-Gents. Arguably even better - and that's saying something - is flipside cut, "Don't Judge Me Bad", a 1987 soul cut that draws influence from boogie, AOR rock and jazz-funk. Both tracks are superb and well worth heavy rotation.

Musically, the track list is reflective of the story, joining the dots between impossible-to-find rarities (see the loved-up jazz-rock of "Jelly" by the Cactus Rose Project and the life-affirming fusion business of Christoph Spendel Group's "Forever"), huggable Balearic synth-pop, flamenco-inspired sunset gems and a smattering of head-in-the-clouds Italian dream house gems. Given Mison's heritage and status within the Balearic scene, it's little surprise to find that Out of the Blue is utterly brilliant.

Review: From the tropics comes Whiskey Disco, a sneaky re-edit label bent on dredging the decanter for diffident dancefloor genius from latent disco perpetrators. It's loosely connected to Sleazy McQueen and his assorted cohorts. On the A side we have the one and only Osmose: DJ, digger, sound designer & producer but most of all: the originator of the Osmose Sound 7" Vinyl Record Stabilizer. He throws down some late night, deep down boogie business (on the very soulful tip) for the A side. On the flip, Thoma Cher makes his debut with some neon lit 80s disco vibes on "All You Need" while "Fright Night" is more on the Italo angle.

Review: Afrocentrist Philou makes his debut on Basic Fingers with a trio of deep-seeded treats comprising one original and two game-changing edits. This homage to the Senegal/Mali mountain region softly ignites with the cosmic yearns and mild acid grounding of "Lumumba's Revenge". It sets the scene for two takes on regional traditions; "Tartit's Tribe" adds a driving afrobeat and hypnotic swing to an ancient Tombouctou desert song while "Fadimata's Dibabba" is a dense and inebriating weave of Senegalese instruments and chants.

Starting off on the A side with a wonderful re-interpretation of early noughties electroclash anthem "Fly With Me" by Coloursound which is given a brilliantly lo-slung makeover. There's then a mighty rendition of a certain classic by The Neville Brothers on the flip with "Sons & Daughters" (Love Creation long edit) and it is just perfect for drifting with its deep, trance inducing drums, cosmic synth textures and rubbery bass grooves all working in perfect harmony. Finishing up with the oddly beautiful and somewhat creepy fairy-tale like vibe of "Kalimba With Alice".

Review: Nut-nibbling nocturnal delights from the mystery bushy-tailed edit fiends Secret Squirrel. As always, both anonymous cuts are deeply dug, expertly refocused and, between the two, cover a serious yard of dancefloor. On the A we have a powerful synth boogie jam where the lead spins a swooning yarn over an insistent slap-bass groove while the B drops the tempo a smidgeon for a dense dubby groove that climaxes in evangelistic style. Essential, as always.

Review: After a relatively quiet 2016, Marvin and Guy seemed to have stepped up a level in 2017. Super Conjunction is undoubtedly one of their strongest releases to date, with the brilliant title track - a mid-tempo fusion of spacey arpeggio lines, restless TB-303 psychedelia, blissful breakdowns and hypnotic drum machine hits - impressively setting the tone. The track that follows, the melancholic Italo-disco drug-chug of "Arpadia" is quietly impressive too, but pales in comparison with epic flipside "The Train of Fantastic". Featuring contributions from occasional Optimo Music sorts the Fantastic Twins, the track seems to build in waves of 12 mesmerizing minutes, as Marvin & Guy pepper another Italo-style arpeggio groove with tumbling pianos, positive chord progressions and stylish spoken word vocals.

This third album Rare Essence is the most complete look into the world of bandleader Munir Septiandry to date, not least when reveling in the heavyweight groove of "Pyramids Of The Moon". There's a lighter disco touch to "Paraswara Harmoni", but equally a cosmic force guides the track skywards in a manner that calls to mind the sweetest 70s library music. "Cyber Crimes" is a sassier affair that makes its club intentions clearer, but at every turn Midnight Runners display a keen proficiency for party music that you can equally chill to.

Review: Coming straight out of Austin, Texas with the party squarely in their sights, the Whiskey Pickle crew have spent a fair while building up their repertoire before leaping to vinyl last year. P Sol mark the third wax offering from this crew, and the chopped up disco house of "Water" makes for a sterling way to draw you in to this four track EP. "Don't Wanna Be" is a low slung, sleazy groover with plenty of filtered guitar licks and weighty bass, "Moods" takes things in a smoother downtempo direction and "Your Dance" pitches somewhere in the middle with a divine slice of soul jazz re-edited for the dancefloor.

Review: Given his renowned crate-digging credentials, it's little surprise that Floating Points is a big fan of Open Soul, the 1976 debut album from Chicagoan soul/jazz-funk fusionists Tomorrow's People. The album is notoriously hard to find, with original copies occasionally changing hands online for eye-watering sums of money. The thing is, though, it's a terrific album, as this welcome reissue on the producer's Melodies International imprint proves. Spanning a wide range of soul and jazz-funk styles - from the rubbery, sax-laden disco-funk bump of "Let's Get Down With The Beat" and doo-wop influenced "Hurry Up Tomorrow", via the blistering "Hurt Perversion" - it's an inspired collection that stands up to repeat listens. Epic flipside cut "Open Soul" - a 20-mimute trip into space-soul territory - is especially good.

Review: District of Columbia-based deep house imprint Better Listen has barely put a foot wrong since launching late last year.

Title track "Everlast" opens proceedings via jazzy, jammed-out pino riffs, dewy-eyed electronic flourishes and dusty deep house beats, before "You're Solid as Fuck" re-focuses attention on a chopped-and-looped deep house/jazz-funk fusion. Flip to the B-side for the grandiose orchestration of disco-house pumper "Fool's Gold" and the near-Balearic sweetness of sun-soaked chunky house closer "Babesonite", which comes on like a disco-house enthusiast's tribute to Pepe Bradock's "Deep Burnt".

Review: Given the "Waltered States" title and Al Kent's well-known love of Walter Gibbons, it doesn't take a genius to work out that the re-edits showcased here are of tracks originally remixed by the legendary NYC disco-mixer. Kent handles 12" one, unfurling the groovy, low-slung, bass-driven disco bliss of "Just as Long" before whipping his shirt off and dancing all night to the swirling strings, rubbery bass and driving percussion of "L&O". Over on record two, sometime Misterio duo Devin Dare delivers an occasionally loopy, ten-minute rearrangement of sweet disco shuffler "Play With Me", before delving into the world of Philadelphia soul on the anthem-like "True Ex".

Chaka Khan's iconic slinky bassline gets all looped and tonked on "Sommer Love", Merry Clayton (who he's edited before with "Grandma's Hands") gets a little tempo injection and much more extension in the groove while McNeal + Niles' classic lolloping hazy soul jaunt enjoys a wry little electronic dusting. Slow, low and loaded with love...

Review: Here's something of a surprise: an EP on Running Back jointly produced by veteran German house producer Boris Dlugosch and rising star Cassara. The inter-generational duo has put together a set of tracks that veers closer to Italo-disco and cheery Balearic goodness than the funk-fuelled peak-time house that Dlugosch is often associated with. Our highlight is probably "Nightflight", a pleasingly baggy concoction that wraps alien melodies and vintage synthesizer motifs around a sparse drum machine groove. That said, opener "Traveller", which sounds like a cross between Electra's 1982 classic "Feels Good (Carrots & Beats)" and lightly bouncy house, and sparkling Italo-disco-meets-Daft Punk throb-job "Intervox" are also rather good.

  1. Dynasty - "Adventures In The Land Of Music" (edit) (4:26)
  2. Cesar Mariano & CIA - "Metropole" (edit) (4:05)
Review: Detroit label Galaxy Sound Co. has been responsible for some killer re-edits over the last couple of years. The genius of their releases, which are mostly tidy 7" singles like this one, is their inspired choice of source material and the deft touch of their scalpel-wielding editors. This time round, the label's anonymous editors breathe new life into tracks from Solar regulars Dynasty and obscure Brazilian disco-funk outfit Cesar Mariana & Cia. It's the version of the latter's "Metropole" - a kind of heavy funk take on the steamy jazz-funk of Azymuth - that shines brightest here, though the A-side rearrangement of soft-focus 1980 disco-soul number "Adventures in Music" - all impassioned vocals, punchy horn lines and warm synths - is also rather good.

Review: Famously used in both Married To The Mob and, more poignantly, on Silence Of The Lambs, "Goodbye Horses" was Q Lazzarus's only hit and a mystery has surrounded her ever since. The subject of many reissues and versions, this is the first time it's been included with a selection of demos which add to the song's mystique as we're taken through various late 80s studio twists that teeter on the dynamics of proto-house. "Tears Of Fear" and "Transformation" add more twists to Q's tale as we're fired through a cannon of synth wave, alt-boogie and full-on, lighters-out balladry. A fantastic piece of history from Mon Amie right here.

Review: Surprisingly, Produced With Love is Dave Lee's first album of original productions under the Joey Negro alias for nearly 20 years. Predictably, it's a fine set, as you'll discover by checking the clips of CD1. This time round, Lee has wisely chosen to indulge his disco and boogie influences, delivering tracks that tiptoe the fine line between stylistic authenticity and the feel-good house music he's long been known for. Highlights include a new disco version of classic Diane Charlamagne hook-up "Must Be The Music", the Arthur Russell inspired "Distorting Space & Time" and a fine, electrofunk style cover of Kraftwerk's "It's More Fun To Compute". Disc two boasts a swathe of bonus material, including a string of sublime remixes and Lee's superb productions for Peven Everett and Alex Mills.

Review: This "Special Edition" of Lord Echo's recent third full-length, Harmonies, seems to be aimed at DJs. Whereas the original pressing contained the same tracks on one piece of wax, this version stretches the same tracks over two super-loud, heavyweight records. Formatting aside, the album itself is something of a head-in-the-clouds, feet-on-the-floor treat. It features the Kiwi producer working with a range of collaborators - Tony Laing of Fat Freddy's Drop and regular studio buddy Mara TK included - to serve up intoxicating cuts that brilliantly fuses reggae, dub and rocksteady rhythms with elements borrowed from disco, Afro-soul, Afro-funk, spiritual jazz and, more surprisingly, techno. It's a hugely vibrant and entertaining set, offering a good balance between dancefloor vibrations and more laidback concoctions.

Here we're treated to highlights from her 1980-81 albums Amor y Libertad and Machos such as the swooning jazz cosmic ballad "Gozame Ya!", the Chic-style bass slaps and struts of "Hagamos El Amor", the bluesy sway of "Que Color" and the Moroder-esque pumps of "Machos". Complete with an unreleased, uptempo high energy cut "Tocame", this is a truly comprehensive rainbow of disco funk hits from a cultural icon.

On the flip you'll find the dub style Version, which strips out much of the vocal and using the chorus as a mantra-like chant.

"Everytime I Think Of U" speaks to the Balearic tendencies embedded in the producer's aesthetic, with a reflective vocal swirling amidst dreamy guitar chops and swooping synth warbles of a strictly blissed out nature. Telephones does a sterling job of remixing the original version into a warm and funky deep house jam peppered with organic delights.

  2. Felix Dickinson - "Burning Flame" (Justin Van Der Volgen remix) (6:30)
Review: The latest 12" on My Rules features label boss Justin Van Der Volgen reworking cuts from two music industry pals: DFA regular Shit Robot (AKA Irishman-in-Germany Marcus Lambkin) and Bristol-based disco deviant Felix Dickinson. Van Der Volgen's version of the former's "Lose Control" is a stomping, peak-time friendly affair, with snippets of the original female vocal, twisted acid lines and siren-style held-note chords rising above a throbbing, techno style rhythm track. In contrast, his version of Dickinson's "Burning Flame" is a retro-futurist Chicago house-meets-dub disco affair. Wisely, Van Der Volgen makes full use of the original's spine-tingling male vocal, wrapping it around an addictive, tactile bassline, drum machine hits and restless cowbells.

Review: Defected's disco-minded Glitterbox offshoot has decided to dip a toe into the choppy waters (sorry) of the re-edit scene. The man at the control is fun-time rework specialist Dr Packer, an Australian scalpel specialist who has spent the last few years contributing tidy edits to a variety of well-regarded labels. First, he adds a little late '80s house shuffle to a soul-fired, boogie-era disco classic, before turning the equally familiar "Still in Love" into a bouncy, club-ready chunk of disco-house full of swirling strings and Chic-style guitars. On the flip the good doctor gets his hands a much-sampled electrofunk workout, retaining the drum delays while adding a touch of nu-disco swagger, before brilliantly dubbing out and tooling up the synth-heavy swagger of 1985 hit "I'll Be Good".

This is an official 12 inch re-release of probably the most revered Paradise Garage anthem of all time. Originally released in 1973, "Love Is The Message" has sustained dancefloors across the world ever since and here Prime present the full original mix from the master himself: Tom Moulton, which is very rare, as any seasoned digger could attest to.

Review: Last year, Sadar Bahar made a visit to the Utrecht studio of veteran electro producer and analogue synthesizer collector Ben Spaander (AKA Cosmic Force). Having got on incredibly well, they decided to record tracks together under the Ben & Sadar's alias. This debut 12" is something of a treat: a two-track, sample-free romp through heavyweight disco-funk fusion. They begin with killer boogie jam "We Are Righteous People", where jammed-out guitar riffs, wavy saxophone lines and rubbery slap bass lines wrap themselves around an all-action drum machine groove. Flip for the guitar-wielding madness of "Bouncing Atoms", whose Cream style riffs and bluesy solos ride a cowbell-heavy disco groove.

Review: The number 13 may be unlucky for some, but it appears to have had no effect on the quality of the Secret Squirrels' club-ready disco manipulations. In fact, it could be argued that the series' 13th vinyl missive is amongst its best to date. A-side "Track 1" makes merry with a throbbing, piano-heavy disco number, adding expert chops, loops and house style drums for guaranteed dancefloor pleasure. The temperature is raised further on flipside "Track 2", where punchy horn lines, life-affirming organ solos, undulating electronics and dubbed-out vocal samples ride a beefed-up disco-funk groove. As usual, the original source material and editors responsible are closely guarded secrets, but neither really matters; these are scorching dancefloor jams, and that's all that counts.

Flip for an awesome twist on Diana Ross's "Love Hangover". Taking the best bit of the record and completely subverting it, full focus is applied to the lolloping bass, jazz key sprinkles and insistent organ hums in the background. Trust us: this is one hangover you'll want to maintain for as long as possible. As with all Secret Squirrel 12"s, this one is limited... Go nuts.

"Yawumna", featuring Somma Idrisu, effortlessly underpins jangly acoustic guitars and African vocals with a metronomic nu-disco groove, while "Afia", featuring vocalist Azizaa, sounds like an unlikely fusion of Afrobeat and Adonis's "No Way Back". Art of Tones provides an organ-laden, sunshine-soaked Afro-house revision of "Yawumna", while Jacques Renault provides a suitably chunky dub of "Ifa" for those late night moments.

Review: Derry boys Queen & Disco return for a third outing on their eponymous label, serving up two gently straightened out edits tweaked for peak-time plays. On the A-side you'll find the rising strings, rich orchestration and celebratory vocals of "Let's Go All The Way", a guitar solo-laden disco bumper tailor made for party-starting fun. Arguably even better is "Just Be Yourself", a high-octane disco thumper that's a little more loopy and house-friendly in construction. It sits somewhere between the thumping loop jams of Soundstream, the riotously camp thrust of Sylvester, and the "drum machine added" edit thrills of Boogie Cafe boss man Jimmy The Twin.

You don't even need hindsight to hear the promise she had at the start of her career. "In The Right Place" was a spacy, almost bluesy disco jam where she's not afraid to take full command while "Johnnie's Home" still sparkles with reggae fusion funk that's often attempted but seldom smashed in such a sexy way.

Review: Oooh it's been a while since we last saw the words Lee Douglas Edit emblazoned on a 12", with the Berlin-based producer fully engaged on developing the primitive electronics of his An-I project for Veronica Vasicka's Cititrax label. Clearly the long-standing relationship between Douglas and Justin Vandervolgen is as strong as ever as the latter coaxes the former into contributing this absolutely booming pearler of a Soulful Dynamics edit. Fans of those Lee Douglas disco edits for Rong back in the day will be all over this as the producer has clearly lost none of his magic touch when it comes to subtle yet deadly tweaking. We strongly suggest you compare this edit to the original to really get an idea of how much work has been put in. Edits like this will never leave your bag.

Here, the most sought after of the two, 1983's eponymously titled effort, gets the reissue treatment. Featuring Mansion singing in French over backing tracks packed with squeezable synth bass, glistening guitars, wavy D-Train style solos, P-Funk motifs and hazy West Coast rock ticks, it's an album that should excite both boogie diggers and Balearic selectors. Certainly, there's a loved-up blue-eyed soul feel to some of the tracks, while others may notice subtle nods to classic Wings (the "Band on the Run" synth sound is all over the album) and early '80s Fleetwood Mac.

Review: Repress! Excellent sounding pressing of an impossibly rare LP track, that has never sounded as clear or dynamic as this version. Originally recorded live in the First Baptist Church in Crown Heights, New York City, in 1982 and pressed only for the congregation, Walter Gibbons (owner of Jus Born studios and a new born Christian at the time of the recording) acquired a copy and played it out at the 7th Avenue. Rock & Soul shop were he worked. This was the place where most discerning DJs and soulful dance music aficionados picked up on this new sound, and it quickly became a Garage, Loft and Zanzibar club classic, championed by Larry Levan, David Mancuso and others.

Review: Suave Parisian scalpel-botherer Dimitri From Paris continues to churn out top notch re-edits, slightly altering his famous production persona from label to label. Here, he delivers a second 12" for Razor 'N' Tape under the Dimitri From Brooklyn alias. Like its' predecessor, it features a couple of stone cold bangers. "Right My File" offers a thunderous, housed-up take on a lesser-known cover version of Dan Hartman's grandiose disco smasher "Relight My Fire" - all vocal breakdowns, big builds and big-lunged sing-along moments. As for "I Want Your Back", it re-casts Dimitri as The Reflex, laying down a version of The Jacksons' "I Want You Back" that sounds like it was done from the multi-track parts. It is, of course, dancefloor dynamite.

Here, he delivers his debut album, Biology, and it's every bit as warm, imaginative and luscious as his previous work. Each of the album's seven tracks is something of a gem, from the crystalline, new age house of "Sea World" and Vangelis Katsoulis-inspired ambience of "Out of Wind", to the Italo-influenced dancefloor pulse of "Suzaku" and rush-inducing, synth-heavy brightness of "Can You Really Feel It". It's one of those albums that will brighten up even the dreariest of days, and those sets are arguably few and far between.

Review: The latest 12" slab from Justin Vandervolgen's ever-excellent My Rules label throws the spotlight on The Creams, an Osaka-based duo and their 2012 song "Lets". A rather pleasant new wave pop cover version of Joe Moks late '70s moog-heavy afro-funker "Boys and Girls", The Creams originally released "Lets" on a NODE 7" back in 2012 but it never really got picked up outside of Japan. It clearly had an impression on Vandervolgen who got his mitts on the band's original multitracks for a pair of trademark deadly edits. Along with the blissful boogie of the vocal version, there is a superb extended dub take which shows off Vandervolgen's undeniable prowess with echo effects.

On this first ever vinyl release, the chugging cosmic disco obscurity - all whispered, orgasmic female vocals, cosmic rock guitars, foreboding strings and sleazy sax - is accompanied by two fresh remixes. Tiney layers ragged TB-303 acid lines and crunchy Clavinet riffs over a thrusting, floor-friendly drum machine groove, before Nixxon doffs a cap to Daniele Baldelli via a "Cosmic Voyage" that puts fuzzy guitars and tumbling melody lines front and centre. Superb stuff.

Review: Boogie badman Leroy Burgess was responsible for some of the greatest disco and electrofunk jams of the early '80s. Even so, few were quite as special as "(You've Got) That Something", a 1981 killer that distilled all that was good about his productions - those distinctive cowbell patterns, life-affirming slap bass, spiraling synths, hard-wired disco guitars and one of his finest vocal performances - in one essential, 11-minute package. As on the original '81 12", it comes backed with the similarly impressive "Dancing Into The Stars", whose melodic bassline is arguably even better than that found on the A-side. If you don't already own a copy of the original pressing, this reissue should be an essential purchase.

Review: Cultures Of Soul have absolutely hit the nail on the head by getting Benjamin Ball on their side, and it's shed a light on one of South Africa's best boogie artists from the 80s. This is the sort of gear that'll make just about any decent collector jump with excitement, not only because of the quality of the music, but also because of its sheer rarity. The wonderfully loose "I Just Keep Dancing" is form Ball's debut LP Paulina, and it really is the sort of tune that'll please just about any sensible crowd. Ball's own vocal flex has enough funk in it to outdo the James Browns out there, and coupled with those snappy drums and raw electro bass makes means that this is the rarest of gems. Soul Clap's remix makes for a nice addition, but it's clear that no man can test the vibes of Benjamin Ball. What a killer!

Unless you've been asleep or on another planet since March you've probably already streamed or download it... But nothing beats the vinyl treatment as it brings the one-take, non-stop recorded session concept to life with weight and a rich sound their analogue machines were invented for. Featuring drums from both Sepultura's Igor Cavalera and Turbowolf's Blake Davies and some of their most timeless, hooky fusions, this is a remarkable return from one of electronic music's most influential acts.

Review: Legendary Italo track on Discomagic from 1984, Ottorino Manardi's Ottomix debut was decades ahead of its time when first released... And still does to this day. Spacious, sci-fi, cosmic and salubrious in its production; there's a crisp sheen throughout the tropical synth hook, Otto's yearning heartfelt vocals and the punctuated bass. Developing momentum throughout with more and more layers, each version of this cult classic is a lesson in unhurried arrangement and embracing space. 33 years old and still spotless.

Review: Cosmic Records Store is a brand new label with just a touch of mystery around the team behind them. If this launch release is anything to go by, there's a touch of class, knowledge and connections too. Celebrating the phenomenon that is the Muse Of Transition, Susana's allure is compounded by her political sexuality in the wake of Franco's demise. Sultry, silky and playful throughout, CRS have enlisted three key Spanish editors to join the party as Mr Absolutt, James Rod and Javi Frias all add groove extending, dubbed out magic to the originals. We can't wait to hear what Cosmic Record Store have up their sleeves next...

Review: Montreal's KenLo Craqnuques has been bubbling away in the underground for some time, but lucky for us Hot Shot Sounds took notice and now present his first outing on vinyl with the Wheeels EP. There is an irresistible funk to the sounds that Craqnuques conjures up, pushing fat, Moog-esque basslines and low slung machine beats rolling at an easy tempo that hark back to the golden days of boogie and electro funk. "Mollusque" indicates how his is far from a throwback sound though - this is up to the minute instrumental RnB that recognises the true roots of the genre while looking to the future, and it sounds utterly fresh.

  1. Priestess (9:03)
  2. Bravado (6:19)
Review: This two-track missive is a significant one for Harvey Sutherland. Not only does it mark the debut of his Clarity Recordings imprint, but also his first recorded outing with regular backing band Bermuda. Opener "Priestess" is something of an epic, with Sutherland working a tasty groove - think languid, live drums, thick synth-bass and spiraling electronics - for several minutes before unleashing some killer jazz-funk keys and Herbie Hancock style solos. In contrast, flipside "Bravado" is a much more spacey affair, with regular, sweaty drum fills and groovy live bass underpinning wild synthesizer motifs and twinkling electric piano. Both are dancefloor-ready, but warm and loose enough to please jazz dancers as much as disco heads.

Between cold wave, synth pop and imaginary electronic atmospheres. This record with its horror-framed and dystopian scenario ("Slot Machine") reveals a content of social criticism healed through the warm and evocative indulgence of "Che Male C'e'.

Review: Adesse Versions is undoubtedly a canny fella. Few others would have thought have re-casting Yardborough & Peoples' "Don't Stop The Music" is a sweaty acid jam, but that's exactly what he's done here. It sounds like he's replayed the bassline on a TB-303, accompanying it with clattering drum machine percussion, wonky acid lines and a plethora of delay-laden vocal samples. It's a simple idea, brilliantly executed. Elsewhere, he cuts up a well-known, disco-era soul groover and turns it into a chunky house loop-jam ("Slide"), before beefing up the beats and reaching for the TB-303 once more on disco-acid stomper "Kameleon". File under: guaranteed party-starters.

Review: NYC party crew Kaviar Disco Club has been making has decided to launch its own label. Fittingly, the tracks on this debut release - largely beefed-up, house-friendly versions of old disco cuts - come from New York and Philadelphia-based producers. Jacques Renault kicks things off with a chunky, tooled-up version of orchestral disco stomper "You're Gonna Want Me Back", before Matpat fuses sax-laden excerpts from a classic disco staple with Prescription style deep house grooves. Over on the flip, Evan Michael steals the show with the delay-heavy disco-house hustle of "Just Like That" - a sweat-soaked, celebratory treat - while KDC resident DJ Higgins gets busy with the exotic disco madness of "Good Times".

Review: A regular triple-figure fetch on the auction sites, it was only a matter of time before Henry Thomas & Rise's beautiful 80s soul doublet experienced the strong-armed justice of Fryer. Not just reissued but sourced and tracked down - this is just the start of what will hopefully be a whole load of criminally slept on and unreleased soul from Henry and his troupe. "My Dreams Are Clouded" is a verified club banger with its FM synth ripples and low-down bass bumps while "Don't Wait Too Long" is the ultimate come home record. Slinky, swooning and soaked in raw dollops of emotion - Henry Thomas is, once again, on the rise.

Review: In the Motor City, Theo Parrish's annual Music Gallery party has become the stuff of legend. Each event features Parrish and a rotating cast of Sound Signature related DJs, with the usual raucous response sometimes causing issues with the authorities (2015's event was shut down by the police). This 80-minute live recording was captured at the 2016 event, which took place at the end of May. It features Parrish and rising star Specter going back to back in their distinctive, redlined style, joining the dots between fuzzy house and techno, grubby low-slung disco, sweaty dancefloor soul and much more besides.

Review: Omar S presents this remastered reissue of the 1979 album by this Singaporean disco band led by Ardo Guerzo and Jeremiah Star on his revered FXHE imprint. The name of the band is an acronym of their first names respectively. They mixed disco and salsa in their hit "Classical Salsa". They covered the Ohio Players' classic hit "Sweet Sticky Thing" and they named their 1976 released album after it. Star was also in the short lived Funkgus outfit which is worth checking out, if you can find it! A true diggers delight for those that knew it seems, but now brought to a wider audience, thankfully. Originally on Baal, a UK label founded in the mid '70s by Jay Shotam of October Cherries. The original Baal label was founded in Singapore by his band in the late '60s until it became defunct in 1980.

Review: There's no secret to the success of Late Nite Tuff Guy's long-running Tuff Cuts series. Buyers have simply responded to the consistency of the Australian producer's approach, and the quality of loopy, house-friendly re-edits. This eighth volume features more party-starting fare, from the glassy-eyed extended breakdown of "Go For That" (yep, a Hall & Oates rework) and soft-touch house take on Marvin Gaye ("Heard It"), to the end-of-night bliss of "Dreams", a decidedly warm and rolling rearrangement of the famous Fleetwood Mac cut of the same name. As if that wasn't enough bangers in one place, he finishes with a triumphant rework of disco-era Michael Jackson ("Starting Something").

Bringing the dance magic out of any record and fuelling our focus on the most essential element of the original's groove, each of these edits is a schooling in version science from the lavish emotions of his "Runaway" to the epic, DJ secret weapon percussion frenzy at the end of "Victorious". Essential.

Review: Lemmy Ashton made quite a splash with his first outing on his own TNC label last year, and now he's back to follow up with another salvo of premium heaters geared towards disco-friendly dancers. There's a chunky, looped up quality to "Silver Suitcase" with its insistent bass lick and slamming drums, but there's equal space for soul thanks to the string-loaded sample hook. By way of contrast "Lunaire" fires up the acid flare and heads straight into a babbling brook of 303-related goodness. "Amsterdam" rounds the EP off on a stomp, whipping up the kind of bombastic disco drama that would get Studio 54 moving were it in action today.

Review: Not just a beautiful compliment to pay someone special, but a hugely influential record that inspired Floating Points' now legendary Plastic People parties, too... A super obscure and expensive one at that. Now re-issued on Floating Points' own Melodies imprint - across three 45s - the Detroit band get full exposure with the deliciously funky main track enjoying two versions before dipping into the softer, more pastoral charms of "I Feel Like Dancing" and the string-led swoon festival, "Theme For Someone Special". We close on two contrasting grooves; an earthy ballad ("Trust Me") and a Whitfield & Strong style funk instrumental ("Dance Awhile"). Cheers Sam!

  3. Sleep
Review: Billy Woost may not have released much music back in his heyday around 1977, but the one album he did put together was enough to secure a place in the crosshairs of the consummate Italian groove archivists, Best Italy. Picking up the finest jams from Woost's back catalogue, we're presented with a three tracker dripping with classic disco charm. "Body, Body Love" comes in a previously unreleased disco form that cruises at an easy pace but packs plenty of punch, while "Please Touch Me" edges the intensity up with a steamy set of strings, brass and vocals. "Sleep" meanwhile taps into a Blockheads kind of funk, bright and bouncy and just a little left of centre, which of course makes it all the more special.
