Disco gets its revenge with a reissue of The Mobley Gang’s super-rare, electro disco moment from 1983, ‘Groove For You’.
Cool track, and highly polished to boot here from Mr. Kane. Glacier-clear out of the speakers, its thumpy progressive-trance underlay is the perfect dais for Melissa’s strong-of-the-type vocals.
The Brooklyn-based disco/electro crew are back with new remix versions of key tracks from their ‘Midnight Creepers’ album of last year. Session Victim emerge with a skewed version of ‘Same Way I Feel’, twisting in a curious mix of new wave, house and broken beats, whilst Hugh Mane nods back to Marshall Jefferson with a proto-house mix. The highlights are remixes from Blasé and Bell Towers, with an inspired Italo-style disco fix.
For their 20th release, Uzuri drop arguably their best so far. Jitterbug’s six-tracker covers a lot of ground, from the disco-fuelled ‘Koko’ to the rippling bassline and sharp percussive bursts of ‘Sweet Tooth’ to the superior, drummy DJ tool, ‘Jus Drums’. ‘Workers’ makes it clear that Jitterbug has matured as a producer and nowhere is this more apparent than on the soulful, string soaked R&B-meets-house sensuality of ‘Ache 4 U’.
