Review: Spanish label Night Shift welcome Belgian duo Chasse to drop some seriously classy dancefloor jams for those who really know how to move. "Pilot" is an effervescent cut that places musicality at the front of the mix, all nimble keys and live drum funk of the highest order. "Dig Him" is an uplifting disco workout that loops it up in all the right places, and "Oh Franck" pumps the rhythm section a little more to head towards the house heads. "In Your Stride" is an unabashed reworking of "Boogie Nights" that takes on a dreamy quality as it chops the original into a fresh configuration.
Review: The fourth installment on Madrid based Night Shift Records is served by label boss Javi Frias, offering a couple of top notch disco edits. 'Just Give It Up' is the A side track, a obscure late 80s boogie track with a house feel that has been retouched and extended to get the maximun pleasure on the dance floor. On the B side you can find 'Come On And Take Me', a disco funk mover with a killer groove, nice vocals and tight synths that surely will make you scream for more.
Review: Spanish funk, soul and disco champion Javi Frias returns with the second release on his Night Shift label, bringing more of that classically informed party-starting business for those who love their classic disco edits. "Tender Feeling" sounds like a perfect transplant from the dancefloor of Studio 54, while "Move To The Groove" is equally entrenched in the finest 70s-styled heat. "Supah Stah" and "Swahili Dance" are equally no slouches when it comes to channeling the best elements of that golden era disco sound - Javi Frias has this music in his blood and anyone that feels the same will be all over this record, dancers and DJs alike.
Review: The first EP on new edit imprint Nightshift Recordings comes from Javi Frias, an experienced scalpel fiend whose rearrangements have previously appeared on Street Edits, Midnight Riot and Giant Cuts. The four reworks here all sound like they've been extensively tried and tested on dancefloors, and tend towards the party-starting variety. The Madrid-based producer wisely keeps things varied, pairing the sweet and groovy "Make It Happen" with the boogie-era gospel disco of "Power" on the A-side. On the reverse, you'll find the sweaty, tooled-up, peak-time disco-house pump of "Gonna Feel So Good" and the punchy, horn-heavy disco-funk swagger of "Hard Edge & Paint".
Review: Alberto De Santiago has already slipped out a few killer edit-rich hits, which drew favourable attention from Spanish label Night Shift. He launches the Discollection EP with the soul-soaked feel-good flavour of "Love Sauce," steeped in the finest disco ingredients to inspire impassioned expression on the floor. The heat stays right up for "Since I've Been Gone", which is packed full of Philly strings aplenty and enough dramatic drops and chops to melt even the hardest frown. "Most Expensive Diamond" and "All The Way" have that magic touch too - these are loud and proud vocal edits to get people dancing on the ceiling. You can't go wrong with classic source material like this - Never Dull indeed.
