Yam who essential tunes

The Boogie Brothers’ – Let’s Go feat Sato
Paper Recordings

When this bomb landed at Paper Towers their only option was to clear the decks and get it out asap. The Boogie Brothers’ ‘Let’s Go’ featuring Sato on vocals is the said track. Cooked up by Japan-based Julian Brennan and Cal Gibson (The Secret Soul Society) as a live disco jam that channels Arthur Russell, FK and Larry Levan. Sato from Japanese cosmic pop duo Viva Sherry was brought on board to provide vocals, and the result is a release that sounds like a modern disco classic. No remixes, no edits, just one stone-cold killer cut and with Danny Krivit already all over it.

The Black Hawks Of Panama feat Bisi – Freaky Dance
Midnight Riot

After an extensive DJ residency at the now legendary Cafe Mambo, warming up for the likes of Leftfield, Carl Cox, Jose Padilla and Frankie Knuckles, Danny Whitehouse aka Black Hawks Of Panama now has a very impressive production career. His new stomper ‘Freaky Dance’ for Midnight Riot features a collaboration with the French based vocalist Bisi. An actress foremost, Danny saw a performance by Bisi singing blues, so his aim was to take her voice and put it with Black Hawks music. ‘Freaky Dance’ is the sound he has been searching for, deep in the party groove, with rich textures of keys & synths all perfectly set to Bisi’s uplifting vocal antics.

Kid Simius – We Like To Party (Gerd Janson Remix)
Jirafa Records

Kid Simius is back on Jarifa Records with four dance floor jams, featuring a re rub from the mighty Gerd Janson. ‘We Like To Party’ features cult Spanish band ‘Hinds’ who take the track into piano house realms, carrying a mean bassline, crispy beats, a classic piano riff, an uplifting vocal chant, mixed with shimmering pads that will spark moments of joy on the dancefloor. Gerd Janson adds some serious weight to his mix, rinsing the piano house hook, adding layers of much tougher electronica and beats, turning out yet another cosmic disco excursion.

Bad Business Club – Flip Me Over
Bunnyman Bridge

Nu-disco act Bad Business Club present their second full-length album, the deliciously sun-soaked and harmonically rich ‘Naked Neighbor’. Following several releases on the revered Midnight Riot, the BBC return with 8 delicately honeyed cuts certain to ring out blissfully over pool-sides throughout the long hot summer and beyond. It’s an irresistible blend of ‘Moroder-infused’ disco vibes, yacht rock flair, and understated nu-disco gloss. The infectious vocal of opening cut ‘Flip me Over’ glides over lush pads, hypnotic arps and tight drum patterns to create a dynamic disco bullet that revels in both night-time excitement and morning confusion.
