The Brothers – Were You Ready For That
Kicking off is The Brothers with a timeless disco classic.
Beau Zwart – Beyond Two Souls (Fouk Remix)
Dutch powerhouse duo Fouk on remix duties for emerging talent Beau Zwart. Based in Rotterdam Beau Zwart steps up with a fantastic debut release Beyond Two Souls. Uptempo house music with disco-like sensibilities, this minimal number boasts brilliantly soulful vocals and a big beat to match.
Felipe Gordon – Oladipo
Afro-funk edited to perfection. Oladipo’s ludicrously funky trumpet line certainly gets you in the mood to party.
LOVEHRTZ – I Need Your Love
I Need Your Love is THE Italo-Disco hook up for peak time clubbing. A joint project by Richy Ahmed and Jansons, LOVEHRTZ is proving to be an invaluable vinyl only series for lovers of reworks and prime disco nuggets.
Akio Nagase – Acid Teng Shing Hang
Something a little more off kilter, but class nevertheless. A fusion of acid, breaks, World music and techno this track is by Akio Nagase a veteran of the Japanese underground dance music scene. Taking a vibrant approach to production Akio Nagase incorporates a strong sense of playfulness, showing no fear for the weird and instead creating wonderfully hypnotic sounds. A master of his craft.

Deep, soulful and emotive disco by East Coast Love Affair reworking rare groove and disco 45s. Don’t Be Afraid comes highly recommended.
LOVEDROP – LOVEDROPS 01 – 25/08/20 – Lovedrops
Jazzy, bass laden house music. Mesmeric saxophone solos and urgency to make you dance. Two fabulously eight minute bangers on this one.
Todd Terje – Delorean Dynamite
It’s only recently I rediscovered this thumping disco belter. 80’s Miami, Red Corvette… Sex, Drugs and.. Todd Terje.
