  1. Relax (3:30)
  2. Malandrinha (4:09)
Review: The Brazilian disco and boogie scene of the late '70s and early '80s has been in the spotlight of late, with several labels releasing celebratory compilations of killer material. Here, Athens of the North get in on the act, re-issuing Painel De Controle's relaxed, jazz-funk influenced jam "Relax", a single B-side and album track originally released in 1979. Like many of the greatest Brazilian disco/boogie records of the period, it's loose, lovely and really rather sumptuous, inviting you to dance while offering a saucer-eyed hug with arms outstretched. Flip for the less celebrated, but no less potent, 1978 cut "Malandrinha", a bossa-tinged number that's almost unfeasibly sunny.

  1. Chaka Kon - "Every Woman" (Keep It Movin mix) (7:16)
  2. The Reflex - "Every Woman" (7:50)
Review: Kon and The Reflex team up on 12" with two neatly contrasting edits of Chaka Khan's premiere lady bomb "Every Woman". Kon plays the lavish extension card, adding extra emphasis on the instrumentation while The Reflex goes for a warmer finish, squaring his focus on the juicy bassline while adding a little cymbal magic to the rhythm. Both authentic and hugely respectful to the original, this is effectively an edit masterclass that we all need to pay attention to.

Review: New Zealand-based DJ/producer Frank Booker is no newcomer to the world of the floor-friendly re-edit. Having previously released killer scalpel works on Razor 'N' Tape, KAT and Disco Deviance, he's decided to launch his own edit series, Down In The Basement. As usual, there's much to enjoy, with Booker extending and working killer grooves, often with the assistance of healthy servings of dub delay. Highlights are plentiful, from the low-slung, percussive dub disco flex of "Track 1" and midtempo disco-funk bounce of "Track 2", to the riotous funk of "Track 4". All are expert revisions, with just the right amount of house style bottom end amongst the original grooves.

  1. Liza... Liza (7:49)
  2. From The Moon (2:35)
  3. Summer Love (2:31)
Review: Given the way disco has been extensively mined over the last few years, it's perhaps surprising that crate-diggers are looking further afield for inspiration. This is a great example. Originally released in Lebanon back in 1978, Liza Liza is a perfect example of the way other cultures quickly adopted disco's dancefloor-filling ways. The title track is nothing short of superb - a hustling, low-slung chunk of Arabic disco full of swirling strings, atmospheric vocals and killer grooves. The original B-sides are even more eccentric, with the acid-friend "From The Moon" and the near Balearic "Summer Love" being both impressively odd and, strangely, rather addictive.

  5. Afacan - "Dunya" (3:57)
Review: The debut release on Disco Hamman, Baris K's Eurasia EP, is currently priced highly on the second hand market, and this long overdue follow up on the label is probably going to become equally sought after. A split release between Baris k and Jonny Rock's Paralel Disko project and Afacan, the five cuts on Disco Hamman dig deep into the vaults of the Ottoman discotheque and will add some Turkish delight to any disco selectors set. "Panayir Gunu" from Paralel Disko and the strange '80s stylings of "Dost Sevgisi" from Afacan are notable highlights but really all five tracks are sublime.

  1. Teu Sorriso (56 mix) (5:32)
  2. Filhas De Oxum (Mudds extended mix) (6:36)
Review: After eight years, Claremont 56 is proud to present its' 50th 12" single release - a special collaborative 12" that's been some nine years in the making. Seu Torriso marks the debut from Paraiso, a project schemed up in the hilltops of Derbyshire, the sun-soaked beaches of Brazil and the bustling metropolis of Hong Kong.
The story begins in 2006, when then Matlock-based producer Ant Harrison (now resident in Hong Kong) began daydreaming about South American music. The veteran studio maestro - best known for his deep house partnership with Matt Rhythm under the Rhythm Plate guise - took to the Internet in search of inspiration, and found a Brazilian duo, guitarist Carlos and vocalist Nego. Having offered to produce some tracks from their jamming, he put together a range of tracks, adding drums, bass, Rhodes, strings (expertly played by Richard Hancock) and additional percussion.
Now those tracks, expertly mixed from the stems by Claremont 56 boss Mudd, are finally available. Both are deliciously breezy, with the duo's loose samba vibe enhanced immeasurably by Harrison's deft production and sympathetic rhythms. The title track kicks things off, delivering a jaunty, sun-kissed blend of shuffling acoustic guitars, cheery vocals, lilting saxophone and undeniably Balearic grooves. Mudd delivers an extended mix of "Filhas De Oxhum" on the flip, stretching out Harrison's groove seductively, whilst leaving enough space in the mix for Harrison, Carlos and Nego's original instrumentation and vocals to breathe. The result is a mesmerizing chunk of shuffling dancefloor Balearica, in true Claremont 56 style.

Review: The talents of Basel-based producer and selector Mehmet Aslan have been brought to wider attention by Huntleys & Palmers and their edits offshoot Highlife, and it's nice to see him popping up elsewhere as a result. This three track 12" sees Aslan inaugurating the Hamman House label under the MMT handle and updating some rare and strange Turkish disco for the contemporary dancefloors. As his Highlife Edits proved, Aslan is a canny hand at reworking track and these recuts are reminiscent of Ivan Smagghe's respected efforts. Our pick is the breathless lazer heavy discotheque jammer "Alamooga" but all three versions are superb.

Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco label seems to be on fire at present, with new EPs of white-hot edits appearing on an almost weekly basis. Predictably, there's more high-grade material on this latest split artist four-tracker. Pontchartain kicks things off with a brilliantly dubbed-out take on Gayle Adams classic "Lifesaver" (previously successfully extended and re-touched by FLX One a few years back), before Osmose delivers organ solos, orgasmic groans and rump shaking beats on "Broadway Kiss". Flip for Derek Kaye's "Holdin' On", a deliciously celebratory number full of cheery scat vocals and incessant grooves, and "I Got Your Wang", a cheery, sun-kissed chunk of disco perfection from Rulefinns Kravstor.

Review: Editor's Kutz on an RSD tip limited to 500 presses.... You just know this is going to be special. Apparently this has been work in progress since last October, but the hard work has paid off as an array of long lost cuts get treatments from the very best in the game. Case in point: Riccio's epic cosmic star gazer "Space Traveller" Em Vee's deep, dubby and hypnotic "Dance The Blues Away". More well-known classics to go under the knife include Jean Clause Gavri's stomping, emotion-soaked twist on a cover of Al Green with "Stay 2gether", Luvless's warm and loopy take on Stephanie Mills with "My Luvin" and JKriv's absolute dream-weaver shake up of Earth Wind & Fire's "Horizonte". Beautiful.

  4. Gigolo (5:01)
Review: Vas continues his prolific editing work with four more crafty extensions. First up a loopy twist on The Dells "All About The Paper" where the groove is kept locked with only snippets of the vocals ghosting in and out of the mix. Next up is a storming shake of Powerline's "Double Journey" (which has been famously edited and sampled by everyone from Harvey to Morales). Deeper again Margie Alexander gets the treatment as her steamy soul showdown from 1975 gets the foot-heavy focus. Finally we segue into electro boogie pastures as "Gigolo" closes the show with deep treacle spoken word and synth so soaking wet you won't need to wash for a week. Exemplary.

  4. Alfonso Muskedunder (Mungolian vs Tangoterje dub) (4:52)
Review: Having previously commissioned remixes of a range of It's Album Time LP tracks, Todd Terje has decided to hand over one of that set's most idiosyncratic tracks - the madcap, easy listening goes dancefloor jazz freakery of "Alfonso Muskedunder" - to a surprisingly eclectic selection of producers. While you would expect old pals Mungolian Jetset to embrace the madness - which they do with a sublime latin-tinged easy listening version, and an even better echo-laden dub, the latter in cahoots with Terje himself - you couldn't say the same for deep house and techno veteran Deetron. That said, his version is excellent, re-imagining Terje's original as a thrillingly breezy Balearic house jam. Bullion's pitched-down, hip-hop influenced version completes a superb package.

Review: When it comes to the disco edits scene at the moment, Tel Aviv man Jean Claude Gavri is on pretty unstoppable form. His latest EBO release leads with a retucked version of ELO's disco classic "Last Train To London" that commences with the sort of intro DJs will love before a main refrain that focuses on the pure disco vibes of the song's verses. Flipside, and "Nightfly" from Steely Dan man Donald Fagan is flipped by Gavri with some help from Omri Anghel which will really heat up the dancefloors.

Review: Get the motor running, Eddie C's crimson Harley is on the High Road and cruising at a stately, limited hand-stamped speed. There's no danger of getting a ticket when beats are as luxuriously languishing as El Molito's dusty organ massages on "Put Some", the dreamy lullaby that is HRENO's "Closely Now" and the glistening guitar ripples of Eddie's "So Remoteman". But the ride isn't always smooth; Hrdvision's "BNW8N4U" gets a little white knuckle with its icy modularisms and snub nosed arpeggio and the warm-but-insistent jazz house stamps of Koosh's "Mouthful Of Gold Teeth" ensure you will creep over 55 at points during the journey... And you'll love every law-breaking second of it.

Review: If you're going to launch a new re-edit series, it's probably wise to get some big hitters on board. That's certainly what the people behind Theme From Kaffe have done for their debut offering. Italian heavyweights Bottin lead the way with "Ora La So", a lo-slung, Clavinet-heavy chunk of dirty Balearica blessed with sleazy, whispered vocals. Sleazy McQueen continues the eccentric theme with the chugging reggae-disco bounce of "Back To Hell", before Albion ups the tempo on the dusty, vocoder-laden wonky disco chug of "Experimento". An excellent EP concludes with the sprawling soundtrack disco of Ivory Boy's "Mare" and "Bright Mezcal" by Avanti, a curiously bumpin chunk of dub disco weirdness blessed with alien synths and a brilliantly rubbery bassline.

Review: West End's occasional reissue series continues with a timely repress of one of the renowned New York label's standout cuts from the boogie era, Brenda Taylor's dancefloor anthem "You Can't Have Your Cake & Eat It Too". With its strong vocal, killer synth bassline, honky-tonk piano solos and delay-laden drum hits, the original vocal version should be familiar to anyone with a love for early '80s NYC club culture. On this press, the definitive vocal version by David Todd and Nick Martinelli is also joined by their brilliant "Instrumental Cake Mix" - where the dubbiness of the original production can be heard far more clearly - and a slightly different, less celebrated early vocal mix.

Four cuts of psychedelic disco and electronic Balearica, all re-jigged with a contemporary sort of production approach, one which renders these four disco trains into veritable floor-filler thanks to their new and improved kick drums.

Review: Founded back in 2010, Norm De Plume's label Plumage really hasn't delivered the volume of records it's artfully punned name deserves with this 12" featuring the man himself alongside Ben La Desh only the third release. Perhaps the Plume is more about quality than quantity, and there is certainly plenty of the former on display across the four tracks on Give To Receive. As you might expect from the title, both Norm and Ben contribute an original production and both also remix each other's original production, making for a unique twist on the collaborative approach. Norm's production skills have developed some now, so there is no cut and loop tactics present on "Roll On", it's all his own work and the funk is still very much there whilst Ben La Desh's "Lotion" really shows off his mastery for toying with vocal loops - nice old school bell sample too! For the remixes, Norm goes sparse and deep on Ben whilst the opposing tweak offers a more tropical vibe.

The fact this 12 is called EP1 suggests Rudman will be issuing a series of records with Kat, which is good news indeed! Lead track "Just Remember" is prime Rudman disco, filled with all manner of instrumental flourishes over its six minutes. There's hints of classic Chaz Jankel to the low slung disco funk of "Never Forget" whilst "Once & 4 All" is pure cosmic bliss.

A dense arrangement full of twists and turns, it looks as far back as it does forward. Limited and hand stamped, bag this and you'll be wriggling and giggling all the way to the decks.
