Smokecloud Records is a dope little label out of Athens, GA that produces high quality, highly collectable vinyl releases of the dance persuasion. Their latest offering is a multi-artist compilation entitled “Smokecloud Blend” and features tunes from Osmose, the label’s founder, Denver’s own disco lord, Falcon Punch, a collab from VinylAddictied & SMQ plus one from Brooklyn new comer, The Silver Rider. This diverse collection of tracks covers a variety of dance floor needs and is the perfect addition to a vinyl DJ’s arsenal.

Dropping in on the A-Side, The Silver Rider’s “Sly & Pat” gets things nice and warm with his low-slung, psychedelic take on a “mighty” disco classic. Hot on it’s heels, Falcon Punch amps up the tempo with a heavy slice of funk with his superb cut, “Move.” Flip it over and we get the thick-as-molases beatdown vibes of Osmose’s “Caught Up” and a rocksteady bless-up of Diana Ross’ classic “Upside Down,” here titled “CC Tribute” and offered by the incomparable team of VinylAddicted + SMQ.

Smokecloud Records rounds out the year with a syrupy 7″ from label founder and boss-man, Osmose. The Athens, GA funkateer and vinyl purest crafts two, low slung numbers aimed less at the dance floor and more at the bedroom. “Forgotten Love” is a shimmering, Balearic tinged foray between the sheets that is sweet and soulful. A-side, “Time Is Now” has a slightly amped tempo and relies on a cut-up, 80’s inspired funk gem complete with layers of latin percussion and slick sax riffs.

Athens based, vinyl only label, Smokecloud Records, have emerged over the last couple years as stateside disco warriors, championing vintage vibes and analogue presentation. Their string of limited quantity releases, aimed steadily at dance-floors and vinyl fetishists alike, have established the young imprint as a player on the global field of boogie aficionados.

Enter their latest offering, ‘Slow DISCO Burn,’ a beautiful 7″ double header that features reworks from Denver Disco head honcho, Falcon Punch, and Smokecloud CEO, Osmose. A-side, ‘Paid Dues,’ is a chunky, bottom heavy cut that loops euphoric chords and slinky guitars while the flipside, ‘Pretty Cool Groove,’ brings the tempo down a few notches with it’s sultry, melancholic riffs and dubby flourishes.

A perfectly balanced outing, buy it HERE on November 10th.
