Lovedrop – Lovedrops 2
After previous releases on G.A.M.M and Home Taping is Killing Music and winning love from the likes of Luke Solomon, Dicky Trisco & Tropical Disco along the way, Adam Dubock aka Lovedrops is back with another heavy hitting 2 sided affair. ‘Track 1’ is a smooth bumper with sax lines, party atmosphere and snippets of a tasty disco-funk working throughout over a killer house beat. The flipside Adam delivers a locked-in, subtly tooled-up take on an electric piano-sporting jazz-funk gem that sits at the jazzier end of the spectrum.
Sound Experience – Got To Keep On The Move (Charles Vaughan Disco Odyssey Remix )
South London DJ, producer, and broadcaster Charles Vaughan presents ‘Gotta Keep On The Move’ with a deadly disco remix, and a further re-tweak by Pangaea Disco & Swung Out Records frontman Theon Bower. ‘Got To Keep On The Move’ is a timeless cut deeply rooted in the original New York disco scene. Its soaring vocals will light up your night or your day, as the euphoria builds throughout and is the perfect ending to a bloody good night out!
Da Lukas feat Suki Soul – Searching For The One
More disco dust from the man like Da Lukas who has recently been smashing the charts with releases on King Street & Good Stuff Recording. Now back on Midnight Riot with featuring golden girl ‘Suki’ on vocals, ‘Searching For The One’ is an authentic slice of peak time magic and is already generating support from the likes of Dr Packer and The Mousse T amongst many others. The funk levels are stacked here, with relentless guitar, clavs and horn superbly backing Suki’s vocals all the way. Some tracks just stand the test of time and this one has that classic written all over it.

Bosq feat The Ibibio Horns – Song For Ehi
‘Song For Ehi’ is a fierce collaboration between afro disco funk producer Bosq and the Ibibio Sound System’s horn section and their vocalist Kaleta. Inspired by a combination of classic Edo-funk, Afro-disco and reggae disco, the A-side original version is a perfect mix of timbales-sporting dub disco grooves, reverb-laden lead vocals, Afro-funk guitar licks, Afrobeat-esque organ licks and punchy horns. The track’s inherent dubbiness is further explored on the flipside revision, adding extra layers of percussion, breathless dancefloor weight and a killer dub workout.
