Faze Action – Body to Body” & “Take My Love”
The brothers Faze Action return with 2 heavy slabs of UK boogie “Body to Body” and “Take My Love” featuring the vocals of Mary Minors and Chris Woods. This time adding extra disco & house flex to the mix, these are classic-sounding 80s floor fillers. “Body to Body” makes use of a more dubbed-out vocal approach that harks back to the golden era of Prelude and West End Records. “Take My Love”, in contrast, has a soaring vocal chorus that will connect to any Disco-friendly dance floor. Both tracks come with dub instrumental mixes for added aural pleasure. Check it out HERE.

Raven feat Jocelyn Brown – So In Love
The Italian based label, Omaggio an offshoot of Strictly Groove has quickly forged a reputation of reissuing killer obscure 80’s boogie tackle. Next up is ‘So In Love’ featuring the highly infectious vocal refrains of Miss Jocelyn Brown. Originally produced by Elliot Rosoff, who has signed a few of the early records in the stellar catalogue of West End, this is another amazing reissue with a throbbing bass line and magical keys teasing us before the chorus drops. This sees Elliot Rosoff, signature organic production style right where it should be; front and centre. Like all their previous Omaggio releases, this will be a highly sought after record and one for all the dancers and music lovers from the world over.

Tone Control – Illusion (Theo’s SS Translation)
New studio sounds from King Theo are heading our way! You can bet 12 years ago when WOLF Music started the label, they never thought they’d be welcoming certified royalty Theo Parrish to lay down a remix on a release. And what better track for Theo to work his magic on, than the deep depths of Tone Control’s 2008 classic – ‘Illusion’. Buttery, soulful deepness, ‘Illusion’ has it all, hitting you right in that soft spot – pure eyes closed business. 10 minutes, building, twisting, and turning in a way only Theo knows how, it’s late night, early morning, peak time, take your pick and a slice of Theo genius no doubt.

AXNÉR – Got The Look (Al Kent Feel Good remixes)
Disco Freaks UK
AXNÉR are Disco Freaks’ Chris Davies (Acid Jazz Records) and singer Julia Axnér. Their debut single ‘Got The Look’ is a self-empowered celebration of getting your glow on and heading to the club for a boogie. Got The Look is an all original production, featuring and co-produced by legendary drummer Ralph Rolle (Nile Rodgers & Chic), Joel Sarakula on Rhodes, Paul Housden on bass and a super-tight Philly brass section to finish things off. Keeping things analogue, AXNÉR called in Al ‘Million Dollar Disco’ Kent to give the track the extended remix reel-to-reel treatment, who strips back the vocals, letting the Rhodes breathe and stirring the track into a dance floor focused crescendo of brass complimented harmonies that the legendary Walter Gibbons would be proud of.

Reanna Coleman – You’re In My Pocket (incl Nick The Record mix)
The Konduko series features Noel Williams (King Sporty) working with other artists and singers on the label’s roster, and continues with the killer boogie ‘You’re In My Pocket’ by Reanna Coleman. While little is known about Ms Coleman – beyond the fact that she was an R&B singer who was part of Betty Wright’s ‘Miami Sound’ backing troupe – here she is stepping up in front of the mic for a one off release – backed by an esteemed team of writers and producers including the legendary Tommy Stewart. Williams’ funk and JA influenced bass is pulled back and a laidback, horn-intersected boogie groove underpins Coleman’s warm, gliding lyrics. Now a mega rarity, here it comes in vocal and instrumental where it is backed with the latest Discomix for the label, welcoming back digger, dealer and DJ, Nick The Record to create his own version. Gently cutting between versions, with deft dub touches to bring this latest Konduko delight up to date.
