Review: Original Montreal selector Ouimet follows up his inaugural edit volume release last summer with three more classically crafted edits. Full floor focus, uptempo and deeply dug, they tick every box you'd expect from one of the original disco pioneering DJs. "Come Party" is a call to action, full horns and feels running throughout. "Where's Eugene" asks all the important questions over a rampant slap bass freak out while "Rob Can't Stop" brings us to an exultant climax with rolling drums and more slap bass that's so rude it should come with a health warning. Don't say yes, say oui!
Review: From humble beginnings, putting on parties in an Albanian dive bar in in the city's east end, Toronto's Patchouli Brothers have gone on to hit the big time - holding a residency at rotating disco The Piston called Beam Me Up. Their second 12" for UK label Basic Fingers features two cuts which capture the fervent energy of their popular shindig. On the first side we have "Shout On" which is a low slung funk jam that features a wicked horns section, groovy conga drums and a super sleazy vocal delivery. On the flip side we have the sun-kissed and life affirming soul power of "My Love", a respectful edit which will light up the dancefloor - just wait until that soaring church organ comes rushing in.
