This triple-vinyl release collects twelve of the Berlin producers most beloved jams. It covers plenty of four-to-the-floor dancefl...view item »

Daft Punk
Discovery

Electronic music is a genre that has broadened so much over the past few decades, that it's become increasingly difficult to find a record that's considered to be an official point of entry. I will tell you this: if you're looking for a start in the genre, Daft Punk's Discovery is the perfect start. Daft Punk may have come from a house music bac...view item »

Daft Punk

Soulwax
Essential

Soulwax’s 2017 Essential Mix was the first instalment in BBC Radio 1’s long-running series to feature over an hour of original material. If that wasn’t impressive enough, consider the fact that they’d already released a new LP (Deewee) earlier that year. Essential collates those Radio 1 ...view item »

Paul Johnson
Feel The Music

Chicago’s Paul Johnson spent most of the ‘90s thriving in the underground dance scene dropping 12s on Cajual, Relief and Dance Mania. He signed for Peacefrog and released his ‘95 debut album, Bump Talkin’. The Following year he unleashed his house masterpiece, Feel The Musi...view item »

Theo Parrish

Project Pablo
There’s Always More At The Store

Six months on from his first release on Ninja Tune sub-label Technicolour - the excellent Hope You’re Well EP - and Project Pablo is back with the follow-up. Once more the Montreal producer serves up some breezy - but not lightweight - house jams on There’s Always More A...view item »

Ben & Sadar's
We Are Righteous People

This is a bold and direct couple of tracks, straight-up disco jams forged from the apt collaboration of Ben & Sadar. As a wholly organic piece, nothing is sampled here - only clean cut bass, sax, guitar and drum programs amount to We Are Righteous People. It's a must have for retro e...view item »

Tony Allen / Ricardo Villalobos
Dekmantel 10 Years 10.1

Wrapping up a ten-EP series in celebration of as many years active, the Dutch imprint Dekmantel commissions from minimal techno heavyweight Ricardo Villalobos a whopping half-hour remix of Tony Allen’s 1999 tune ‘Asiko (In A Silent Mix)’. Villalobos weaves new effects and synthetic materials in...view item »

Denaji
UNTHANK006

UNTHANK006 by Denaji gets a repress following an initial run of just 13 copies with packaging production values that would make Factory Records lavish efforts look restrained. The three-track EP contains a remix of lead track, Wuhti by DJ Sotofett's Bhakti Cr...view item »

Bjørn Torske
Kickrock / Blue Call

Minimalist techno from the beautiful town of Tromsø. North enough that you can see the Northern Lights it's no surprise this city has a strong musical lineage, which includes ambient legend Biosophere. Bjørn Torske was influenced by his fellow Tromsønites and is releasing two ...view item »

DJ Sprinkles & Hardrock Striker
Skylax House Explosion

Hardrock Striker founded Skylax Records back in 2004, and the intervening years has seen the label release work from artists like Mr. Fingers and Lady Blacktronicka...view item »

Moodymann
Silence In The Secret Garden

The shadow of Silence In The Secret Garden still looms large over Moodymann’s output fifteen years after its initial release. He’s arguably never found a better synthesis of darkness and light than on this LP - see how the title track suddenly switches from fidgety, erstwhile minimal techno into a soulful de...view item »

Alek Lee
Colours

I'm still trying to get my head round this album art. It's not that I don't know what it is, it's just...why? Colours is Alek Lee's second record on Antinote, and as you'd expect, it is a brilliant sounding record that Alek creates by messing around with electronic and deep house sounds. Available on vinyl 12". ...view item »

Space
Magic Fly (Remixes)

This Space were a late ‘70s French electronic band fronted by Didier Marouani, a pop singer who supported ‘French Elvis’, Johnny Hallyday on tour. For this project however, he used the pseudonym, Ecama. Magic Fly was a huge hit for them, reaching No.2 in the UK...view item »

Chris Brann
Deep Fall

Dalholt & Langkilde
Sur Plus

Jamie xx
John Talabot Remixes

Jamie xx gets remixed by big boss John Talabot, not once but twice. ‘Loud Places’ (featuring a vocal from Romy of The xx) gets both a high energy and a chill-out variation. Jamie has managed to avoid the dilemma of nearly running out of variations on...view item »

J. Albert
Dance Slow

As much fun as various formats can be, for dancefloor tracks the ultimate desirable destination must always be vinyl: lovely DJ-friendly wax. That’s what has happened here: J. Albert released a funky-fresh cassette called Dance Slow last year, and the highest-achievers from that set have graduated to this vinyl re...view item »

Tin Man
Love Sex Acid

Tin Man sends out a super clear message with the track titles on this little 12”: ‘Love And Sex Acid’, ‘Falling Acid’ and ‘Let’s Do It Acid’. Basically this is all about the acidic 303 action, with rhythms that drive forwards with sensual encounters in mind. Great material, so grea...view item »

Leon Vynehall
Nothing Is Still

Well, Leon Vynhall wrote a book. In the mid 20th century Vynhall's grandparents emigrated to New York, a journey he has found incredibly inspirational. The sum is Nothing Is Still, an album, a novella, and more. What's more it features most of an orchestra. Vynhall's debut album is nothing if not ambit...view item »


Dance For Your Life – Rare Finnish Funk & Disco 1976-1986

Lordi. HIM. Apocalyptica. When one thinks of Finnish music, the words ‘funk’ and ‘disco’ are not ones that immediately spring to mind. The people at Svart Records - despite being a label that largely releases prog and metal - are out to change those perce...view item »


Heads Records - South African Disco-Dub Edits

Ever travelling into the musical terrain of the Southern Hemisphere, Soundway have this time raided the vaults of South African label Heads. The label's star shone briefly but brightly between 1982 and 1984 and released some 20 or so 12" singles and LPs before closing its doors. The label mixed disco with bubblegum pop,...view item »

Peggy Gou
Once

A rising star of the international club scene for the past couple of years, 2018 might be the year that Peggy Gou explodes into the public consciousness. It certainly will if she keeps making records as good as this. After graduating from Ninja Tune sub-label Technicolour, Gou’s first EP f...view item »

Kuniyuki & Fumio Itabashi

The Lucid Dream
SX1000

Not since Paul Weller created 'Modernism: A New Decade' as there been such a stylistic shift as this. Previously the Lucid Dream were Carlisle's biggest psych rock export but here have soaked up 80s UK acid house and produced an unlikely dancefloor-ready track at odds perhaps with previous work but showing a gen...view item »

Stephen Encinas
Disco Illusion

The reason that Stephen Encinas’ Disco Illusion sounds like such a perfect example of vintage 80’s New York disco is that it is precisely that. But sadly it was never properly distributed back in the day, depriving decades-worth of dancefloors of this groovy wild music, complete with steel pans and cool tape...view item »

Ozo
Anambra

Anambra is a vintage classic from Ozo, a group who played soulful dub music with a healthy infusion of spiritualism and African percussion. This tune incorporates a Buddhist Sanskrit mantra, making ...view item »

Volcano / The Beat Gangsters
Vanonyana Lava / Chappies (Reluctant Mix)

Split 12" reissue of two sought after 90s South African cuts. The A-side is the much sought after Vanonyana Lava by Volcano. This track saw Volcano mixing the Kwaito genre with house for an addictive result. The B-side is The Beat Gangsters's Chappies, named for a brand of gum. Chew on that!...view item »

Peggy Gou
Day Without Yesterday / Six O Six

‘Day Without Yesterday’/Six O Six’ originally dropped in early 2016, when Peggy Gou was just a budding DJ who blew a lot of cash at Phonica Records. Fast forward two years and the Korea...view item »

Will DiMaggio
At Ease

Double LP of dance cuts from DJ Python and Anthony Naples' roommate Will DiMaggio. DiMaggio is as capable a producer as a DJ, and his philosophy shines brightly on both. Spacey, jazzy, and sometimes psychedelic, this is just the release if you're looking to get free. Rel...view item »

Prins Emanuel
Arbete / Fritid

Work and leisure; seldom shall the twain meet. It’s the great, arbitrary binary of modernity, as well as a core theme of this debut LP by Prins Emanuel of Sweden. His Royal Highness has quite the knack for funky, exotic house music, and a soft touch with his shuffling production. He’s fibbing about the ‘work&rs...view item »

Basil Kirchin
Silicon Chip

Basil Kirchin was an astonishing Hull-based musician and composer, who worked with orchestras, tape machines, avant-garde explorations and pop songs for many years, but with little recognition till Trunk got reissuing after his death. Silicon Chip is a properly funky slice of...view item »

Studio Mule
Carnaval feat. Miyako Kouda

Clearly no longer content with being one of the most consistently excellent house labels of the last decade, Mule Musiq branch out with this mysterious new Studio Mule project. Not much is known about the group’s membership - our guess is that MM boss Toshiya Kawasaki might have something ...view item »

Phil Kieran
Polyrhythms

Polyrhythms. We all know what they sound like, right? Good: I was not welcoming the challenge of having to actually describe a technical musical facet. Here on Optimo is Phil Kieran, dragging with him an EP of drumming masterclass -- sourcing percussion from Thomas Tettey Annang, he brings the resource...view item »

Frankie Knuckles Presents
Ultimate Production

At this point it’s old hat to talk about how good the late Frankie Knuckles was. His shadow still looms large over the contemporary dancefloor, and the work he did on TRAX in the 80s needs no introduction. The label now sees fit to drop some remastered nuggets of Knuckles-flavoured goodness. The release in...view item »

Arp Frique
The Colorful World of Arp Frique

Following a well-received debut EP on Rush Hour at the back-end of 2017, Dutch musician Niels Nieuborg’s Arp Frique project drops its debut L...view item »

String Theory
Modularity

Brand new duo from Glasgow String Theory slam dunk the funk on their debut EP for Rhythm Section International. You might very well suspect that with a canny title such as Modularity, the music entails some sort of modular synthesis, the musical creation kit de jour. You would be right, of course. But there’s a lo...view item »

Dauwd
Jupiter George

‘Jupiter George’ is the third release in less than a year on ambient pop label Kompakt records by prolific disco/house champion Dauwd. The title track ‘Jupiter George’ is deeply reminiscent of the classic eighties disco sound whilst maintaining Dauwd’s fundamental originality. The charmingly named ‘Ritter Spor...view item »

Mary Clark
Take Me I'm Yours

Mary Clark’s Take Me I’m Yours is a classic disco cut from 1980. Originally cut in an edition of about 200, original copies aren’t easy to come by, but demand has raised substantially since compilations and radio mixes showcased its funky charms. Hence this 12” reissue on P&P / LA Shawn, whic...view item »

Shina Williams & His African Percussionists
African Dances

Despite the slew of compilations and reissues of music from 70s and 80s Lagos in the recent years, relatively little attention has been given to Shina Williams. The Nigerian band leader was one of the finest exponents of the funky Lagos style that fused Afrobeat, reggae, disco, highlife and more. There are few instances where hi...view item »

Will Long
Royal Blue / Mustard

Will Long’s politically engaged deep house music is back in the form of his new album Long Trax 2, which is released in full on CD and also in parts across three 12”s. Royal Blue / Mustard is perhaps the most unusual in terms of the colours chosen, and it features the Barack Obama-s...view item »

Will Long
Maroon / Pink

Will Long, who makes luscious ambient drone under the name Celer and gorgeous deep house under his own name (and sometimes in collaboration with DJ Sprinkles), presents a second full-length album of politically charged dancefloor cuts, which is also available as a series of 12”s, like the ...view item »

Will Long
Sallow / Pine

Will Long’s politically engaged deep house music is back in the form of his new album Long Trax 2, which continues the habit of mixing samples from the likes of Barack Obama with meditative, melancholy pads and beats. Sallow / Pine is one of three 12” versions of the album’s m...view item »

Taraval
Streetways EP

Sometimes, its fair to say, we’re fucking useless. This 12" was filed away in the stockroom, no description or review or press release to hand. I’ve gone to Boomkat to find the info. I feel slightly dirty and had better clear my browsing data before Phil sees. Anyway it’s a new signing to Text, the label run by beats king and e...view item »

Sink Ya Teeth
Sink Ya Teeth

NYC, London, Berlin … Norwich? The East Anglian city might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of danceable post-punk, but Sink Ya Teeth emerge from Norfolk with an LP to give the likes of ESG and !!! a run for their money. They’ve toured with the latter, as wel...view item »

Cottam
Locked In The Groove

12" from Preston's Cottam released by FCR, the new sub label from Fat Cat Records. Locked in The Groove is a slow burning, dubby 11 minute journey all carried by one very hard working bass line. Occasionally he has the decency to give the bass line a bit of a rest by using the most sacred o...view item »

Tim Maia
Disco Club

The public’s seemingly unquenchable desire for Brazilian sounds has led to the unearthing of another long-lost treasure. Tim Maia is something of a legend in his home country, producing endless wedges of Brazilian soul between 1970 and his death in 1998. His eighth LP pits his powerful baritone yip against muscular funk an...view item »

The Drones
Boredom Remixes

Australian rock dudes The Drones here serve up their track Boredom for remix and reimagination by two artists: Zero Percent (the pairing of Kim Moyes from The Presets and DJ Mike Callander) and disco producer K.I.M.. Much more dancetast...view item »

Peggy Gou
Travelling Without Arriving

"Peggy Sue" hiccuped Buddy Holly but this is different, this is Peggy Gue,  a prolific producer who here comes up with a subtle house groover only to have it remixed and ravaged by one of her favourite DJs Ge-ology who adds a harder, dancefloor-ready edge to the more subtle original. Ltd 12" on Phonica.&nbs...view item »

The Prodigy
Music For The Jilted Generation

This album was the turning point for Prodigy from Experience to Fat of the Land. It has some of the club/house elements of their debut but shows them going into uncharted territory. They experiment more with guitar, samples, and the actual music is the perfect blend of chaos and melodic electronica. This would be expanded upon more on their next...view item »

Pender Street Steppers
MH019

Pender Street Steppers are waltzing around the Mood Hut once again, this time with a five-piece platter of emotionally-driven, house-ish delights. This EP opens with the maudlin “Raining Again”, setting the tone for a release of slow-moving jams and eyes-down grooves. “Blackboard...view item »

Perel
Hermetica

Perel's debut album manages to strike the balance between post-punk and disco that only the better artists on DFA's roster manage to. The German producer is a proud fan of Eurythmics and 2 Unlimited and she has the comfort with more poppy melod...view item »

Will Long
Long Trax 2

Mark Archer AKA DJ Nex
The EPs

Some heavyweight 90s dance tackle here. DJ Nex - Mark Archer to his mum - released EPs The Nex and Poundstretcher in 1992 and 1993 respectively. They’re full of fun hardcore/jungle/acid tracks, a little zanier than your average. The people at Music Mondays always figured ...view item »

Tony Allen / Motor City Drum Ensemble
Dekmantel 10 Years 10.2

Dekmantel’s tenth-birthday vinyl series rounds out with possibly the strongest release of the lot.

Conjuring the sort of lights-low ...view item »


Satan In Love ‐ Rare Finnish Synth‐Pop and Disco 1978‐1992

The colourful catalogue of Finland’s Svart Records spans material old and new, but seems to specialise in scarce gems from the forested country’s underground music history. In this case, we have a tour de force of several decades’ worth of Suomi synthpop and disco. ‘Satan in Love’ by Emilia is a not...view item »

Arp Frique
Nos Magia

Arp Frique is a colorful blend of Surinam, Caribbean, and Cape-Verdean influences, all laced together in a deliciously dirty mix of disco and afrobeat.

Willie Graff & Darren Eboli
The Tribeca Tapes

Denmark’s Music For Dreams have done a nice line in blissful post-Balearia for just shy of two decades now. Their latest release, an EP from Willie Graff & Darren Eboli, is no exception. The Tribeca Tapes is as technicolour as its artwork. Tracks like ‘First Light’ and ‘Moon ...view item »

Ron Trent vs Lono Brazil vs Dazzle Drums
Manchild (In The Promised Land)

Ron Trent and Lono Brazil. You probably know what this is going to sound like already, don’t you? And it does. Trent cooks up one of those classic Mahogani Music-type house tracks that seem to just get better with age, while Brazil chats a sort of pseudo-beat-poet diatribe over the top. Th...view item »

Mr. Fingers
Cerebral Hemispheres

It's happening! It's finally happening: Larry 'Mr. Fingers' Heard is about to bless us with his first long-player since 1994!

Snips
The Barbershop

London-based beatmaker Todd Worsnip—aka Snips—drops “The Barbershop”, his first vinyl release via Houseology, a banging hip-hop/house hybrid that weaves together his slick-as-butter production skills with a suitably tongue-in-cheek approach to sampling. Eight tracks of funky futuristic dance beats....view item »

808 State
Gorgeous

No, this isn't on par with the greatest 808 works, but there are still complex, creative beats and soaring synths on this album. I would love to hear this stuff performed at a club. Tracks like "Plan 9" and "Nimbus" are brilliant displays of technical skill with soul. There's also an organic grind to many of the songs that, chronologically speak...view item »

Simian Mobile Disco
Murmurations

Simian Mobile Disco’s fifth studio-length album builds a sonic soundscape that sounds equally as powerful blasting through your headphones on the morning commute as it does in a sweaty club at 4am.

Omar S
Your Socially Awkward Criminal

Omar S with two more of those effortless, classy Detroit jams for which his name has become a byword in recent years. ‘Games That We Play’ is not a million miles away from last year's sun-dappled Nite Jewel collaboration ‘Confess To U’, albeit with a vocal from Diviniti...view item »

Alexi has...view item »

Fred Ventura
Future Unknown (The Lost House Trax 1988-1992)

Fred Ventura is Italo-Disco royalty these days, but it could all have been so different if he’d followed through with his late-80s/early-90s experiments in house. Mannequin Records have hoovered up what Ventura got to tape in this period, got them properly mixed and sent them off into the world. While the ...view item »
