It’s a trully exciting release, you can check the stunning dub below.
Yam Who? is back with his essential disco gems for March and it’s packed with outstanding music from across the disco spectrum, a testament to just how vital disco is right now.

Rare Pleasure – Super Fine Feeling (Ashley Beedle Edit)
A’s and Bees
Only previously ever pressed on an almost unattainable acetate, rare as rocking horse shit and changing hands for a mere £400 upwards, this 1977 modern-soul-tinged disco classic from Rare Pleasure will now be available for those on a leaner budget. It’s all about the soaring vocal harmonies, jamming guitars and big band sections and who better to provide the modern edit than Ashley Beedle himself, offering up some delicate tweaking & dubbing, editing out to over 10 minutes for maximum dancefloor bedlam.
Teena Marie – Love Songs & Funky Beats (John Morales Mixes)
Producer & DJ extraordinaire John Morales returns to BBE Music, celebrating the life and work of legend Teena Marie with a double album of new remixes. Crafted from the original studio tapes, entitled Love Songs & Funky Beats this is a lovingly curated insight into Lady Tee’s expansive catalogue, packed with expertly sculpted music that she continuously created right up until her untimely passing in 2010.

Fire Island feat Loletta Holloway – Shout To The Top (Hifi Sean Remixes)
In 1998 Fire Island (aka Pete Heller and Terry Farley) hit the No 1 spot in the US ‘Hot Dance Music Play’ chart with Shout To The Top. Originally recorded by Paul Weller back in ‘85, Hifi Sean was recently granted permission to get his hands all dusty from the original tapes containing the golden vocals of Salsoul royalty Loleatta Holloway. Hifi brings this beauty into the present with these 3 versions including a soulful string laden soul groover, a real late night pumping gospel house jam and a swooning orchestral reprise.

Phil Fuldner & Dan Dinsing – Colors
DJ and producer extraordinaire Phil Fuldner makes his long overdue 2021 Midnight Riot debut. Alongside one of his closest friends & his brother in spirit, Dan Dinsing, a multi-creative designer and musician, Dan has been instrumental in many of Phil’s greatest hits. Colors is an ode to all things deep, sensuous and serious. Part Detroit banger, mixed with a classic jazz theme that documents the direct ancestors of jazz and disco up to house music, with its heavy off kilter rhythms and body melting keyboard riffs that will wrap themselves around you & not let go.

Blue Dream – A Trip To LA
Andy Compton is undisputedly one of the hardest working producers in dance music. The Bristol-based producer is a master of creating profoundly funky and vibey music. His latest long player for Tangential Music is a collaboration with LA artists Irantzu Pujadas and Brad Kent under the name Blue Dream. Think of the sun-facing vibes of Shuggie Otis, Eddie Chacon, Bobby Caldwell at his most relaxed and add a passionate knowledge and experienced grasp of electronic forms. ‘Trip To LA’ is a much needed balm for these times.
