If you're looking for some loud, blow your system, blow your ear-drums, blow your whole head off music, then this is the dance destroying remix EP you're looking for. Rowdy bordering on the side of absolutely effing mental. Well crafted dancefloor, which will kill any floor without the pneumatic drill. Although still utterly dark and disgustingly dirty, the vibe is a somewhat more grown-up style of jump-up. Great EP if you’re into that side of things.
Beautiful music from Phil Tangent and Steo, rolling liquid with soft and mesmerising vocals. Fast paced drums, with soft pads and a gloriously radiant bassline. This is music to feed the soul.
Canadian reissue outfit, Invisible City Editions, dig one level deeper to unearth this brace of cosmic, tropical disco oddities. ‘You Turn Me On’ is a curious, minimal production that loops primitive drum machine sequences beneath heavily delayed vocals; originally surfacing in 1983 on the hugely obscure Canadian disco label, Neige. On the B-side, they’ve even found a rare recording from Hawaii’s disco past — the utterly oddball ‘Ancient Times’ by Astarius — of which I have zero information on. Top sleuthing.
As the imprint enters its centenary year they celebrate their continued success with a debut release from FD. A soulful and jazzy roller with Sunday morning listening stamped all over it.
