Colored Music
Colored Music

Japanese duo, Colored Music’s 1981 debut is for fans of weird and obscure music. Their sound is utterly their own, however, if you imagine David Bowie’s Berlin trilogy spliced with the work of Japanese electronic pioneer Haruomi Hosono, it may give you an insight into their world of spacey new wave, weird disco, avant-garde synth pop, proto-house and post-punk glam. Interested? LP and CD on WRWTFWW Records.

Crazy P
Age Of The Ego

Eighth studio album by British dance music legends Crazy P. Inspired by the febrile atmosphere of austerity, division, online narcissism and the nation’s general nervous breakdown, but determined to have a good time nonetheless, Age of the Ego shows why the collective is still in such high demand, even in the third decade of their existence.

Fort Romeau
Heaven & Earth

After joining the pantheon of DJs and producers who've created a BBC Radio 1 Essentials Mix, Fort Romeau releases Heaven & Earth a four track EP on Permanent Vacation. Expect the warm and psychedelic house that Michael Greene has long been known for. The sort of gentle and welcoming tracks that would easily slide into any warm up set. 

Roisin Murphy
Overpowered

Overpowered (2007) was the second album by ex-Moloko singer Roisin Murphy. Murphy set out to make a pop/disco album and she succeeded. She took influence from the pre-house sounds of D-Train, Mantronix and Gwen Guthrie, whilst being inspired by the cerebral pop of Yazoo and Eurythmics. Jimmy Douglass, Bugz In The Attic and Richard X all helped to make the album what it is.

Lawrence
Black Cats

15 years! Imagine doing the same thing for 15 years! I mean, that's not as old as Norman Records but still... it's impressive. To celebrate fifteen years Mule Musiq are releasing 12 12"s from their friends and loved ones. Number six, Black Cats, comes from Lawrence, who creates very atmospheric tracks using mellow piano and skipping bass.

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 lot more to this sound - they’ve got the funkiest lounge-jazz bass since Pest, for a start. Beautiful.

LT
Forest Floor

Rave revivalism as imagined by Rhythm Section here. Bradley Zero’s imprint tends to keep things chill, so LT’s ‘Where Were You In ‘92?’ vibe is more restrained than, say, the breaks bonanzas of Special Request. However, Forest Floor is replete with jacks, chords and basslines taken from the world of hardcore. They’re just a little more restrained than usual. Think Pender Street Steppers or fellow Rhythm Section protege Mallard.

Dan Kye
Joy, Ease, Lightness

Jordan Rakei has a side-project that releases on Rhythm Section International. Makes sense once you think about it. Anyway, Rakei’s work as Dan Kye is much better than the Jeff Buckley-type thing he does under his given name. The four tunes of Joy, Ease, Lightness are breezy deep house shuffles of the Theo Parrish/Moodymann school. Re-pressed just in time to catch the end of summer.

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 his sound is in fuller effect than African Dances. One of these three lengthy dancefloor smashes is the crucial ‘Agboju Logun’.

Jay Daniel
Tala

Tala is the new LP from up-and-coming Detroit DJ, Jay Daniel. He is making waves in the electronic music world and is a major name in the new Detroit scene. He has a connection to the early ‘90s, however, as his mother, Naomi Daniel, added her vocals to a couple of Carl Craig-produced Planet-E releases - Stars and Feel The Fire. Jay Daniel currently holds a residency in Detroit with friend and mentor, Kyle Hall. Double LP on Watsui High.

Kongas
Afrodesia

Disco legend Marc Cerrone reboots his erstwhile Kongas project. Given that the group have only released the odd EP for the last 40 years it’s unsurprising to find that Cerrone drafted in new blood to help lay down Afrodesia. Despite the change in personnel these exuberantly funky tunes show that Cerrone still knows how to get a party going after all these years. Anyone still mourning the passing of Prince should find some solace in Afrodesia.

Hammer / Atlus (Denis Sulta)
SSSS-3

Denis Sulta, man about town, offers us SSSS-3 on Sulta Selects Silver Service, an offshoot of the regular Sulta Selects. The a-side features Belfast's Hammer with 'Dance Since', a bass heavy, 90s house influenced monster. Sulta himself appears on the b-side as Atlus, supposedly the Jekyll to his Hyde.

Roza Terenzi
Let's Ride

After spending the last couple of years dropping excellent EPs for labels like Planet Euphorique and Salt Mines, Australian producer Roza Terenzi now rocks up on Dekmantel. In general Let’s Ride fronts more of the rainforest dream-house stuff that Terenzi has impressed with these past couple of years. Opener ‘3.I.Y.’ is the curveball, a stiff-necked club cut that recalls the best of early Jam City.

The Chemical Brothers
No Geography

For the first time since 2015, big beats are back. Yep, The Chemical Brothers are at it again. No Geography, the duo’s ninth studio LP, is pretty classic Chem Bro fare. Once more we find them balancing pop nous with arena-sized techno instrumentals. Aurora features on several of the tracks here. Nene crops up as well.

Peaking Lights
Sea Of Sand

DIY experimental psych-dub duo Peaking Lights change up from releasing on their own label to drop sounds on a full-blown dance music label: new extended EP Sea of Sand is distributed by Dekmantel. Still though, this husband and wife pair keep on working their own special sound territory, with typically gorgeous results. Six tracks, 30 minutes, 12 inches.
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

Aaron Broomfield
Boomerang

Double-mix delight from Crown Ruler Records here. Back in the late ‘70s Aaron Broomfield of the Broomfield Corporate Jam briefly attempted a solo career. It didn’t run to more than a handful of singles, but for some reason his killer space-funk jam ‘Boomerang’ never made it to the pressing plant. Here 'Boomerang' comes presented in two versions - the flexi-disco A-side and the loose, sensual demo take. Anyone fond of a bit of Melodies International should take a gander at this.

The Shamen
En-Tact

A classic early 90s dance album and a landmark work by The Shamen marking their gravitation from psych-rock to psych-rave, the employment of the naughty, naughty, very naughty Mr C and, sadly, the final contributions from the sweet-voiced Will Sinnott. With a bulging cast of mixers and producers from Paul Oakenfold and Orbital to The Beatmasters and Meat Beat Manifesto, it also comes in many versions. Here is one of them.
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

Prins Thomas
Ambitions

Norwegian producer Prins Thomas has a surprise in store on his sixth LP Ambitions - he’s started using vocals! Well, kind of anyway. Lead single ‘Feel The Love’ features Thomas layering dreamy, reverb-drenched sampled harmonies over the kind of Nordic Balearicism we’ve come to know and love him for. It sets the tone nicely for the rest of Ambitions, a record on which Thomas claims direct inspiration from Haruomi Hosono, Ricardo Villalobos, Shinichi Atobe and a few others.

The Prodigy
The Fat of the Land

CHAMPAGNE LAGER LAG … oh sorry, wrong one. The Prodigy’s proto-EDM behemoth The Fat Of The Land really needs no introduction at this point. The band are best known for collaborating with Sleaford Mods of course, and everyone loved that Gene Simmons cover of ‘Firestarter’. Change my pitch up.

Feater
Socialo Blanco

Charming bit of retro synth music from Austrian musician Daniel Meuzard, here going as Feater. Socialo Blanco is his tribute to the EMS Synthi AKS, which he recorded entirely by hand and straight on to tape. The result is a bunch of grooves that will steal the heart of any fans of vintage electronic music. On Running Back Incantations. 

Antena
Camino Del Sol (Joakim & Todd Terje Mixes)

Two remixes of the title track from Antena's 1983 album Camino Del Sol, a stone cold electro-samba classic that still remains utterly influential. The remixes are from Todd Terje and Joakim. Terje turns it into a slow burning stompeter while Joakim goes down the electro-house route. On Permanent Vacation.

Round Five (featuring Tikiman)
Na Fe Throw It

The Main Street Records drops work like so - though the artist names change from release to release, all of the label’s records were made by the duo of Moritz Von Oswald and Mark Ernestus (Basic Channel) in the 90's. While most of the stuff they put out on Main Street shifted the emphasis of the duo’s dub techno style towards house and garage, 1999’s Round Five is the closest the pair ever got to actual doing dub music. ‘Na Fe Throw It’ is a downtempo and brooding tune made all the more moody by the vocals of Tikiman (Paul St. Hilaire).

Round Three (featuring Tikiman)
Acting Crazy

Great news for deep house fans - Main Street Records are reissuing all of their classic club wedges. 1996's Round Three saw Mark Ernestus and Moritz Von Oswald join forces with Tikiman, an artist we’d come to know better as Paul St. Hilaire. Hilaire’s slinky, vaguely Tricky-style vocals only add to the psychedelic haze of ‘Acting Crazy’. An instrumental and edited version are also included on the Acting Crazy EP.

Theo Parrish / Marcellus Pittman
Essential Selections Vol. 1

Repress of this tough house collaboration. Detroit selector and house don Theo Parrish goes head to head with Motor City pal Marcellus Pittman. Their distinctive brands of soulful, melodic house are combined into three thoughtful and understated grooves. This Sound Signature release contains the warmest synth stabs you’ve ever heard!
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

Jayda G
Significant Changes

Jayda G’s debut album on Ninja Tune is here, and it is titled Significant Changes: well indeed. Jayda’s had a good couple of years, and her progressions are there to be heard on the album, which is lush and funky and optimistic, even when touches of melancholy are in the mix. Great and thoughtful dancing music.
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

Lamellen
Monty Roberts

Lamellen take it slow and easy here on their Monty Roberts EP, particularly for Dekmantel. Sub-100bpm drum machine grooves and warm, distant keyboards make for a chill vibe indeed: some kind of sun-faded memory beach, with people having a fun easy time. It is a very pleasant soundworld to be immersed in, give it a try.

Phillipi & Rodrigo
Paciencia

Debut album from Phillipi & Rodrigo, a pair of Brazilian producers with a knack for capturing good vibes and filling tracks with them. Paciencia often seems to be partaking in three different parties at once, with Brazilian and techno rhythms, organ and sitar samples, and Portuguese lyrics. Lots to take in, but all of it fun. On the Soulwax boys’ label.
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

Octo Octa
For Lovers

Octa Octa is one of the leading proponents of emotional house music and here bares her soul once again on a series of tracks which bring real life vulnerabilities to dance music. What we get is exquisite house dub and sensuous loops  -the sort of music that has an uplifting but melancholic quality to it and make you feel better about your own life.  
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

Shahid Wheeler
Just One Dance Before You Go

Melodies International are a nifty little label. Their line is that they track down rare-ass, expensive-ass old club killers and reissue them at a fraction of the cost you’d pay for an original copy. The latest Melodies coup is Shahid Wheeler’s 1978 number ‘Just One Dance Before You Go’. A righteous disco joint of the Off The Wall school, this is the sort of dancefloor gold that never goes out of fashion. Here it is presented remastered and backed with the instrumental.

Christian Löffler
Graal (Prologue)

Graal (Prologue) is the third album released by German producer Christian Löffler. Given that bracketed subtitle I think we can safely assume it won't be his last. Along with his collaborators Mohna and Josephine Philip, Löffler makes cold and emotive dance music that rattles the bones. On Ki Records.

Jayda G & Alexa Dash
Leave Room 2 Breathe

From the tracklisting of her debut full-length Significant Changes comes a single from Jayda G, here pressed up in white label style by Ninja Tune. Leave Room 2 Breathe features Alexa Dash as a guest vocalist, although if you prefer just the instrumental (or even just the acapella vocal!), both those options are available on B-side.
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

Okyerema Asante
Sabi (Get Down)

The first you need to know that this track is fourteen minutes long. Ghanaian musician Okyerema Asante's Sabi (Get Down) is an entire disco all on its own. Released in the early 80s it has been long sought after and has featured in sets by Giles Peterson, Hunee and Lakuti. The b-side, 'That's My Girl' is just as mighty. Reissued by Kalita Records.

AMOR
Sinking Into A Miracle

Amor are a Glasgow-based dance outfit. Their eclectic line-up bleeds eclecticism into their music, however. The band consist of avant-garde musician Richard Youngs, Turner Prize nominee Luke Fowler, Paul Thompson who played drums with Franz Ferdinand and Norwegian minimalist composer Michael Francis Duch. Their debut album, Sinking Into A Miracle, was recorded at Chem 19 in Glasgow, the place where all those Delgados and Arab Strap records were made and produced by Paul Savage and Richard McMaster of Golden Teacher. LP and CD on Night School.

Italo Funk

Where Italo Disco and Funk music mix, great things can come to pass. Soul Clap set out to prove this with their new compilation Italo Funk, and they achieved it with ease: just listen to these ten joyous cuts. Boot & Tax, Jolly Mare and Deep88 are all here, throwing out juicy basslines every which way. Double LP compilation.

Midnight In Tokyo Vol. 3

Ever wondered what night time feels like in Tokyo? Well do we have a compilation for you. Midnight in Tokyo Vol. 3 from Studio Mule is a masterful selection of tracks that capture then multiplicity of nightlife in Japan's capital. It's sexy, it's funky, it's calm and it's lovely. All in all these 14 rare tracks are utterly transportive.

Screamers, Bangers & Cosmic Synths Volume 2

Triassic Tusk Records (King Creosote, Andrew Weatherall) return with the second volume of their Screamers, Bangers & Cosmic Synths series. Does what it says on the tin, this one. This is a collection of heavy rare cuts to whip up many a dancefloor frenzy. They're funky, groovy, sometimes a little bit squiffy, and generally just really good fun.

Brooklyn New York's most crumpled man returns following along from his well received American Dream album made whilst pretending to split the band up. Now it's time for some dancefloor ready remixes and this instalment sees LA Native Lovefingers have two goes at taking on 'Oh Baby' adding a bit of psychedelia and drive to the original.

Beautiful People (Floorplan Remixes)

Positiva is currently celebrating a quarter-century in the game with a run of anniversary releases. Following entries from artists including Eats Everything and Mele, the seventh in the series sees Robert Hood in Floorplan mode and giving Barbara Tucker’s 1994 garage smash ‘Beautiful People’ a going over. That’s the one that goes ‘deep inside, deep deep down inside’ by the way. Both the remix and its dub are typically elegant takes by Hood.
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

Night Force & The Tom Cats
Dance

Some superb old boogie from Afrosynth Records here. Night Force originally released the energetic ‘Dance’ in Europe in 1980, but the track was officially slowed down (from 45 rpm to 33) for the South African edition a year later. It is the latter we concern ourselves with here. The 1981 release was bolstered by four sleek, sexy SA disco tunes from The Tom Cats. Anyone with an interest in the rainbow nation’s house styles should give this one a spin.

Neville Watson
The Midnight Orchard

Don’t Be Afraid have kept in touch with acid tech-houser Neville Watson, who returns to the label with his first LP in five years. Cover art’s a bit ‘Ghost in the Celt’, innit. He’s sounding more serious and pensive than before, but there’s nowt more boring than the dead-serious techno producer conceit - Watson knows this and ensures there’s always plenty of fun along the way.

For Discos Only: Indie Dance Music From Fantasy & Vanguard Records (1976-1981)

Various - 'For Discos Only: Indie Dance Music From Fantasy & Vanguard Records (1976-1981)' is a huge 5LP or 3CD box set that contains a bunch of artists who can stake their claim in making music that ultimately led to techno, house and in some cases, hip-hop. Sylvester, Fat Larry’s Band, Ike and Tina Turner, Free Expression and Home Grown Funk all make appearances. I’m sure the label won’t find out if you play the records in your front room, despite what it says on the cover. 
  • Genre(s):

Will Long
Long Trax 2

Will Long, makes luscious ambient drone under the name Celer, but he also makes gorgeous deep house under his own name (sometimes also in collaboration with DJ Sprinkles). Here he presents his second full-length album of politically charged dancefloor cuts, Long Trax 2. This CD edition on Smalltown Supersound features all six of the new Long Trax.

Lindstrom
It’s Alright Between Us As It Is

Lindstrøm is back baby, with his first solo album for a whole half-decade! We can of course count on Lindstrøm to deliver the goods, and his highly professional approach to spacey future-disco is in full effect on It’s Alright Between Us As It Is, which is designed to be enjoyed in one continuous sweep. Guest vocalists include Grace Hall and Jenny Hval!

Le Stim
Tribute To Muhammad Ali (We Crown The King)

Melodies International have forged a rep for re-releasing rare soul gems, but even by their standards they’ve pulled off something of a coup here. Le Stim’s 1980 single A Tribute To Muhammad Ali (We Crown The King) is a rare-as-hen’s-teeth bit of Midwest Disco. It’s a great party piece too - according to Le Stim leader Donald Jennings big Cassius himself was a fan of the song. With the help of New Zealand's Rain&Shine imprint Melodies have managed to acquire the licences for both versions of the track. They've also remastered them for this new drop.

Discophilia Belgica : Next-Door-Disco & Local Spacemusic from Belgium

Just look at that there cover art. Compiled by some serious diggers, Discophilia Belgica : Next-Door-Disco & Local Spacemusic from Belgium is an exploration of the out-there sounds from the little country of Belgium. Most of the artists across this two part compilation series would never have called themselves musicians and never performed their music live. However, there are some crackers on this one.

Jacques Greene
Focus

Jacques Greene with his first official release since 2017’s Feel Infinite LP here. Focus is one half of the Fever Focus EP, a record that can be purchased as a whole or in separate parts. The three tracks of Focus find Greene once more exploring the club as a space for dreaming and escapism through a mixture of sounds drawn from post-dubstep, deep house and r&b.

Can You Feel It? Modern Soul, Disco & Boogie 1976​-​86

Tramp Records have an excellent track record of making well curated compilation albums. After mining a bunch of  funk and soul nuggets released over three albums they’ve turned their attention to disco and modern soul fo Can You Feel It? Modern Soul, Disco & Boogie 1976-86. Features tracks by Silky Vincent, The Tams and Deep South Dance Band. Double LP on Tramp Records. First 400 copies come with a bonus 7” featuring a previously unreleased track by Deep Velvet.

Kallaloo
Star Child

Reissued for the first time: a splendid, sought-after Caribbean disco number from 1982 with uplifting duet vocals, bass too hot for TV, psychedelic guitar and synth and drums with enough claps to wear out an entire production line of sound-activated switches. Side A is the five-minute ‘Short Version’, which is all well and good, but the titular child really shines on the eight-minute side B version.

The second accompanying compilation to Tim Lawrence’s Life & Death On A New York Dance Floor 1980 - 1983 drops on Lawrence’s new label Reappearing Records. It’s another collection of tunes that capture the spirit of early-80s NYC, a time when the city’s hip-hop, club and punk scenes were all beginning to mix freely. Contains cuts by Loose Joints, George Kranz and Peech Boys.

Crooked Man
Crooked House

Too much low-key, cool and detached, smooth and sleek house music around these days? Well, if that’s what you reckon, then Crooked Man has the answer: a big album of big, booming, over-the-top electro-house. Lots of energy and sweet stretched grooves here on Crooked House, which is released by DFA of all labels.

Stranded
Celine's Dilemma EP

Optimooooooooo. The Glaswegian label with their umpteenth wedge of cracking party music here. This latest drop comes courtesy of Nashville newcomer Stranded. Celine’s Dilemma is a record of buoyant bedroom disco which packs a serious dancefloor punch. Many of the tracks here hark back to those exciting days in the early 2000s when we thought DFA was going to save us all.

Cromby
Futurola EP

For a while Denis Sulta was using the Sulta Selects label as a vehicle for releasing his own stuff. However, with the new Sulta Selects Silver Service series that appears to be changing. The sub-label kicks off with a release by Irish producer Cromby. Futurola might not have been made by Sulta, but the three tracks here bear all the hallmarks of the Glaswegian’s own work. That means Chicago house beats, rave breaks and whooping vocal samples are the order of the day.

Disclosure
Ultimatum

Disclosure! They're good. These lads know how to do sunny dance music, even if the timing of this release is a little on the late side to be 2018's Big Summer House Classic. Brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence recently discovered the amazing, heartfelt and powerful voice of Malian singer and musician Fatoumata Diawara and here she is lending her vocals to another smash. That's 'Ultimatum'. Limited 12" single on Island records.

Paranoid London
The Boombox Affair

With a nostalgic taste for late 80s acid house, a DIY punk attitude, and whiny 303s, Paranoid London are guaranteed to deliver a dancefloor wrecker. The Boombox Affair is dedicated to LGBTQ+ activist Bubbles Bubblesynski, murdered in San Francisco, meaning that your hard-earned pounds will go to charities while you get a thumping 12". 

Rotla
Waves

Beautiful tones from Italy’s Mario Pierro aka Rotla (Raiders of the Lost Arp), once again for Edizioni Mondo. Following the label’s fondness for library and documentary music, Rotla’s new twelve Waves blends balearic and kosmische references into eighties disco on the title track and slower territory on ‘Babash’. Includes two remixes of ‘Waves’ from label boss L.U.C.A. and Mark Barrott.

After a brief flirtation with Soundway a in 2017 when he remixed The Sweetest Meditation by Lord Echo, Julien Dyne is back on the label  to conduct some of his own bizness. Teal mixes Future soul and afro-house and is dripping in synths. His work with Theo Parrish, Steve Spacek and Andreya Triana has had Moodyman and Giles Peterson saying nice things about Dyne. If you’re a fan of Lord Echo, Electric Wire Hustle, Fat Freddie’s Drop and Eric Lau among others, then this is for you. Double LP cut at 45rpm on Soundway.

After many years of DJing, putting on parties and running the Secretsundaze label the duo of James Priestley & Giles Smith are now starting to show off their production skills. Following on from the Still Hope EP that came out on Phonica back in June the pair release Cyber. This EP sees the title track done three ways - the deep ‘House Pass’, the Danielle Baldelli-esque ‘Cosmic Slide’ and the Floating Points-aping ‘Ambient Sax Mix’. Good stuff.

Womack & Womack
MPB (Missin’ Persons Bureau)

Ahh this is a really nice one man. Womack & Womack initially released the electro-soul number ‘MPB (Missin’ Persons Bureau)’ as a track on their 1988 LP Conscience. A couple of years later, an at-the-peak-of-his-powers Frankie Knuckles got hold of the stems and turned in a cracking 100 bpm house flip of the tune. This ‘Paradise Ballroom’ mix was also stripped of its drums for a ‘Folk Version’ that foregrounds the lovely vocal harmonies and guitar. And now the good people at Melodies International have reissued both of those reworkings.

The Chemical Brothers
Further

If you don’t know if, Further is the 2010 album of The Chemical Brothers, and it's kind of their shoegaze album. It also might be their best album of recent years, with the usual focus on big guest collaborations jettisoned in favour of an epic tangle of ecstatic electronic beats and textures. A full psychedelic trip without losing the big club power. Vinyl reissue.

Previously only available as an ultra-rare 7”, ‘Amerikan Dread’ is a disco-funk strut topped with an aching vocal from Victor equal parts David Byrne and Grace Jones. Comes backed with the ‘N.Y.C.

Parcels

A further addition to the 'call your band literally anything' brigade is this hot young group from Australia who have since moved to ...oooh...let's guess....Berlin! They've already had a staggering 90 million streams across various platforms which I'm sure means something to someone out there. Be interesting to see how these Daft Punk collaborating disco pop lot get on in the real world.  

Yan Tregger
Ducks & Drakes

1979 French library music from Yan Tregger. Like almost all of its library music brethren, Ducks & Drakes has of course been rare as hen’s teeth on vinyl for countless years, so this readily available BBE reissue is a delightful development. Entirely created by Tregger himself, this is an incredibly groovy disco-funk set that you need to hear.

Yan Tregger
Catchy

1978 French library music from Yan Tregger. Like almost all of its library music brethren, this album, the first of two originally recorded for Musical Touch Sound, is monstrously rare on vinyl, so its so good to be able to hear this material properly. Weird and wonderful disco music, heavy with spacey vibes and funk grooves. Reissue editions from BBE.

Lawrence
Illusion

After a couple of LPs for Mule Musiq, Illusion sees Lawrence back on Dial, the label he founded alongside Carsten Jost and Turner. This is another record of finely-calibrated central European techno and deep house from the one born Peter Kersten. The likes of Move D and Will Saul would have been pleased to come up with something like the delightfully bleep-bloopy ‘Treasure Box’.

79.5
Predictions

Big Crown (The Fields & The Expressions, The Shacks) release the debut LP by intriguing NYC group 79.5. While it’s in essence a party record, a lot of influences are torpedoed into Predictions. The minimally groovy rhythm section often resembles ESG, but there’s a girl-group vibe to some of the carefree melodies, while tunes like ‘Boy Don’t Be Afraid’ have a little Sade to them. Imagine a more streamlined version of The Go! Team. It’s good fun.

Mythologen
Church Music

Swedish producer Mythologen aka Alexander Palmestål is back with second twelve Church Music - probably short for Church-converted-into-a-nightclub Music. We have one of those here in Leeds! Bursting with rather euphoric electro-dance, big smiles all-round, the EP shows Palmestål’s great fondness for London’s myriad club scenes.

Daniel T.
Heliotrope

In a former life, a decade or so ago, Southern California native Daniel T (Terndrup) was one half of Cosmic Kids who drew upon a very wide range of musical inspirations as well as, of course, the vastness of the cosmos. Daniel has long been a crate digger and a collector armed with an impressive knowledge of all sorts of bygone music, hosting regular radio shows on both NTS and Dublab. Terndrup now turns his attention to his solo project and has developed a production style taking in a melange of influences -- funk, post-punk, new age and pop included -- filtering all these along with the SoCal sunshine into his armoury of tunes. Heliotrope is the result, a fun-times album that's sure to make both heads and bodies move. LP on Cascine records.

Dwart
Taipei Disco

Taipei Disco is music made by Dwart during time spent living in China, between the years 1989 and 1993. Composition took place in a Macau apartment and even within the Guangzhou nightclub that gives this EP its name, using early portable synth technology to record ideas in the moment. Intimate-epic synth-pop goodness with an interesting history. On Holuzam.

Bomb The Bass
Into The Dragon

The current rave revivalism of acts like Etch, Dream Cycle and Special Request jacks just as much steez from records like Bomb The Bass’ Into The Dragon as they do from ‘Voodoo Ray’. This 1988 LP was a top-twenty hit on release, further evidence of the groundswell of support for the sub-genre of hip-house. Across these ten tracks, producer Tim Simenon fuses rave breaks with Bomb Squad-style beats and scratch science to fresh effect.

Bob Moses
Battle Lines

This is the sort of thing that happens when you let Johnny Jewel release too many records. Bob Moses - confusingly not one person but two men called Tom and Jimmy - drop their second LP via Domino. Battle Lines is full of perfectly competent synth-pop songs that remind one of Hurts. If this Norman Records™ description writer were a GCSE Music invigilator he would give it a high B for style, a low B for performance and a C for composition.

The Blaze
Dancehall

The Blaze will be absolutely massive. They kind of already are - a video upped to YouTube in 2016 for their song ‘Virile’ (yikes) has four million views and counting - but we reckon their debut LP Dancehall is going to make them REALLY massive. The combination of Disclosure-esque pop-house with Jungle’s ‘urban’ ‘cool’ vibe and that … thing that Bonobo does is just too big to fail.

Yello
Frautonium (The Andrew Weatherall Remixes)

Yello were formed in Switzerland in 1979 and continue the gap between Kraftwerk, Laibach, 80s pop and rave. Bonkers as they are, this leads to a multi levelled appreciation. Remix lord Andrew Weatherall takes his favourite song from their 2016 album Toy and reworks it into four distinctively diverse versions, from disco, to electro and ambient.

Round Two
New Day

Back in the 1990’s Basic Channel were reinventing the wheel by fusing club rhythms and dub textures to create what we now know as dub techno. However, BC wasn’t the only thing that the duo of Mark Ernestus and Moritz Von Oswald were up to at that point - they found time to extrapolate the style out to deep house and garage on their sporadic Main Street Records drops. ‘New Day’ (it’s vocal edit, shortened version and dub) is one of the prime examples of the style and well worth the reissue. The duo were going by number of releases for their artist names at this point, hence why the New Day EP was released under the moniker Round Two

Marquis Hawkes
The Marquis of Hawkes

Like many of today’s electronic artists, Marquis Hawkes bases himself in Berlin. On his new album The Marquis Of Hawkes he takes us on a journey through beatless drones, deep dub, body jerkers and some retro bass jabs. Jamie Lidell and Ursula Rucker make guest appearances. Double LP on Houndstooth.

Loose Joints
Is It All Over My Face

The thing you really need to know about this Loose Joints single, Is It All Over My Face, is that the man behind it is the one and only Arthur Russell. This is the first time it’s been available to buy as a 7” single. It dates from the early ‘80s when disco had died and dance music was free of its cheesy shackles, leaving true innovators like Russell to do his thing. The Female Vocal mix by Larry Levan has been a huge influence on the Chicago house scene as its DJs have sampled the drums time and again. 7” on Get On Down.

Francis Harris
Leland

Francis Harris initially released Minutes Of Sleep in 2014, and it has been out of print for most of the intervening time, so let’s all celebrate this new reissue from the good people over at Scissor and Thread. Leland is a great example of Harris’ aesthetic, with his sound bolstered by Emil Abramyan’s cello, Greg Paulus’ trumpet, and Gry’s vocals. Triple LP vinyl reissue.

Justice
Woman Worldwide

While touring Woman, Justice had to reconfigure the album to be suited to being played live. This process unearthed a different side to the album's tracks, one they have documented in the studio on Woman Worldwide. They didn't stop there though, and played some of their best known tracks in the same style as well.

Serge Gamesbourg presents Boston Goes Disco!

Underground disco gold….DJ, producer, baseplayer and all round disco-edit don Serge Gamesbourg has had his deep crate-digging/research hat on as of late. After releasing a couple of 12” on Street Edits he got to work discovering the huge wealth of undiscovered disco in his home city of Boston. This compilation brings you tracks from tiny labels and single pressings from the late 70s and early 80s, with most being edits or reworks by Gamesbourg.

Paranoid London
Paranoid London

Some dance floor delivery from Paranoid London. This self-titled release features the tried and tested booty mover "Paris Dub". As a whole, the record does not let up and is packed with certified acid house vibes throughout. Striding all things Detroit, Chicago, techno and house these jams will work everywhere - one for the heads!

Kon & Amir present
Off Track Vol. III: Brooklyn

DJ pair Kon & Amir are far too wise about their music specialties: I can scarcely imagine the weight of their record collections. But don’t get jealous! Just sit back and let them spin an array of gorgeous rare cuts for you to enjoy. Volume III of their Off Track mixtape series focuses on Brooklyn NYC, the source of so much groovy musical wonder. Reissued double LP.

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 ambitious.

Terre Thaemlitz / DJ Sprinkles
Deproduction EP 2

Terre Thaemlitz’s LP Deproduction was a bold, challenging and typically fearless piece of sound art. The arresting original of ‘Admit It’s Killing You (And Leave)’ brought together post-minimalist piano composition with discomforting samples. Here, all is stripped away bar the keys to leave an uncanny spool of music. Deproduction EP 2 also has Thaemlitz turning in an edgy, deeper-than-deep house remix of the same piece under the banner of her DJ Sprinkles project. Great stuff.

Will Long & DJ Sprinkles
Mint / Clay (Long Trax EP 2)

Terre Thaemlitz’s Comatonse Recordings label is rolling out a three-part series of releases from Will Long. The Mint / Clay (Long Trax EP 2) has two tracks from Long (who also makes ambient work as Celer), as well as two overdubs by Thaemlitz themselves, under their DJ Sprinkles alias. Everything here is borne of a long-term engagement with house music and its implications, and this pair of 12”s will be crucial for all Thaemlitz followers.

808 State
ex:el

Think back to 1991, when 808 State were at the peak of their techno powers. You had a great time losing your mind and body to these original bangers didn’t you? Now you can jog your memory again with their third album ex:el (featuring guest appearances from Bernard Sumner and Bjork!), reissued here on yellow vinyl with 4 bonus tracks. Limited to 750 copies worldwide.

Bjørn Torske
Byen

Bjorn Torske celebrates two decades in the game with his fifth solo LP, which is also his first in eight years. Byen conflates Torske’s two principle aesthetics (buoyant Nordic disco-house and stately, palatial synth ambiences) to produce nine elegant tracks. It’s a lengthy record - there's generally one track per side of this double LP - but such is Torske’s command of his craft that things never feel over-long. Out, as you might expect, on Smalltown Supersound.

Mark E
Product Of Industry

Mark E hails from the West Midlands, and identifies the industrial background of the area as an influence on his sound, particularly on this album, Product Of Industry (obviously). But, refreshingly, this isn’t just a byword for ‘heavy’ and ‘dark’ music. Mark E takes the mechanical relentlessness of industry, but tempered with warm analogue synth sounds. Its a strong combination.

Perfecto
You Can't Run From The Rhythm

Perfecto’s 2015 LP for Joyful Noise (The Low Anthem, No Joy) is back on vinyl. You Can’t Run From The Rhythm is an enjoyable hip-house record with a winking, parodic element to it. Think PC Music if the sound they were playing with was music from 80s workout VHS’s. Fifth track ‘The Labrador’ is a psychedelic synth epic that features production from cLOUDDEAD member Odd Nosdam.
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

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 they could have been cut a little louder, so that’s exactly what they’ve done here. Remastered across three vinyl with some dinky new artwork.

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 perceptions. They’ve brought together eighteen choice morsels from the discotheques of 70s and 80s Finland. A lot of the tracks have a charmingly skew-whiff, Gilbert & Sullivan-esque flavour to them.

Tunde Mabadu
Viva Disco

Some ultra-rare boogie Lagos here. Originally issued in 1980 and long lost to the annals of time, Tunde Mabadu’s Viva Disco is Nigerian disco par excellence. The tunes here boast ten-tonne grooves, and the slightly distorted recording only adds to their energy and verve. Anyone with an ear for the likes of Joni Haastrup, Shina Williams, Christy Essien and the like should head over this way. Re-released via Mr Bongo.

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 well as Moon Duo, and are about to set off for a jaunt with A Certain Ratio. The likes of ‘Pushin’’ and ‘Glass’ are fun, lithe electro-pop jams.

Fit Of Body
Black Box No Cops

Skater and cassette-only label (Harsh Riddims) owner, Ryan Parks AKA Fit Of Body melds Detroit influenced techno, jazz and rap then passes it through a no wave mincer to create Black Box No Cops. The album is named in honour of the Black Box skate park in Atlanta. LP and CD on 2MR, his debut for the label.

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 originals on CD and double-vinyl. It finds the Belgian techno legends up to their usual tricks. Bleeps and bloops galore.
  • Genre(s):
  • House / Dance / Acid / Old-Skool / Disco

Will Saul
Bugs

Aus Music boss Will Saul has been more interested in collaborating in recent years, with Bugs representing his first solo release in almost half a decade. It seems like Saul is making up for lost time with this one - the title track doesn’t take long shifting from a pretty twinkling keyboard intro into a very tough, very pleasing house roller. We’ve also go a second tune and a remix from Matt Karmil on this one.
