Foreword by Le Visiteur

2023 is already turning into a bit of a golden year for disco and we are only a couple of months through, what with a slew of incredible original music and some pretty huge gigs. Our Disco Juice column, with Yam Who? at the helm, is providing a pretty spot on guide to exactly what is going on so make sure you check out the previous editions here.

Yam Who’s Midnight Riot is also right there at the forefront of the scene, if you have a quick check on the Traxsource disco charts right now they are packed with Riot Releases. This month alone has Disco Made Me Do It 6 landing, more on that below, along with tracks from Mishell Ivon, Powerdress, Da Lukas and label bossman Yam Who with a rather funky rework of Let’s Go Dancing.

On the gig front one to definitely watch out for is Yam Who appearing at Horsemeat Disco’s Up On The Roof on the 7th April.

Takuya Matsumoto – Tape Is Rewound EP

After a couple of years in the wilderness, FINA Records makes a welcome return with a fresh new five-track EP from acclaimed Japanese veteran Takuya Matsumoto.

Adept at all forms of house from deep to tech to acid, on the ‘Tape Is Rewound EP’, Matsumoto shows his full range demonstrating some low-slung rawness, elegant hi-tech soul, and feel-good sample heavy deepness on the A-side.

On the flip he rolls out some dubby acid and a fat-bottomed, party-starting looper. It’s not often you get so much genuine variety and so many irresistible grooves all inside one package!

Andromeda Orchestra Mozambique EP

Andromeda Orchestra – Mozambique EP

[Faze Action Records]

Faze Action Records reveal another gem from Robin Lee’s organic disco nom de plume; Andromeda Orchestra.

This time entitled “Mozambique”, the EP kicks off with Andromeda Orchestra’s signature dance floor led dub workout named “Bad Girl”. Throbbing bass, stabbing strings, cutting guitars and muscular piano grooves are book ended with an analogue Moog solo wig out that completes the cosmic journey. The A side continues with the low slung cello and vocal led “Twilight Lady”.

On the flip side is the equally incendiary title track; “Mozambique”, which is named after the conga rhythm that features heavily in this percussion and piano cosmic extravaganza. The full vocal mix of “Bad Girl” rounds off the EP.
