Deep and sensuous vibes abound on this fresh premiere from Mancunican producer and Secret Reels cohort, Loz Goddard. The man just dropped his forthcoming “Sunset Vista EP” for Quintessentials on us to cherry-pick a premiere track and we couldn’t resist the loveliness of “Flavour.” Give us a funky bassline and Rhodes piano and we’re in heaven…obviously, this tune features both prominently along side some soulful, Gladys Knight-tinged vocals and a shuffling, low-slung rhythm.

Dicky Trisco, the inimitable, globe-trotting disco-jock and head honcho (alongside the legendary Pete Herbert) at such luminous labels as Disco Deviance, Secret Squirrel, Special Edition, and File Under Disco is on deck for our latest installment of the Discobelle Mix. His insatiable touring schedule and world class productions have made him a legend in his own right and we’re grateful that he was able to squeeze us into his busy calendar.

The boogie is thick on this one as Mr. Trisco laces us with almost 2 hours of pure, funk power. Dig in and let the man provide a soundtrack that is sure to carry you through your hump-day and all the way into the weekend.



Secret Reels, the burgeoning imprint helmed by 1/2 of the now defunct production duo Purple Velvet, has been at the top of our list this year after some serious PR and dropping one of our favorite EP’s from one Harry Wolfman. Handling duties for the label’s second release of 2016 is Italian producer Kian T with is “The White Tapes EP”… and we gotta tell ya, it’s just as impressive as the rest of the Secret Reels catalog.

Here, we showcase the A1, “Flughafen.” It’s dusty pads and crunchy percussion lays a foundation for some chirppy vocal snips to punctuate and a sub bass line to roll beneath. A lovely Rhodes melody peaks it’s head in for added delights while the energy builds to a fever pitch. Despite all of its soft and hazy layers, “Flughafen” is a heavy swung, dance floor bomb that has already proven itself many times over.

Cop the wax.


Hotmood drops in for the latest installment of our exclusive mix series to lay down the funk vibes with a heavy dose of his signature sounds. Hotmood caught a lot of attention with his debut 12″ for the Chicago imprint, Tugboat Edits, just earlier this year and we just couldn’t resist inviting him to do a mix for us. Low-slung and sample-heavy is what you’ll get when to tap into Hotmood… his skills in the studio are matched only by his skills behind the decks as this mix clearly displays. Dig in!



Kyoku Records is a young label out of Melbourne, Australia that we recently caught wind of via their inaugural release from French producer, Ethyene. Now, on the eve of their sophomore release…this one from Danish producer, Dorsi Plantar, we’ve managed to scoop up the A1, “Tender” for premiere. The track opens with a wonky, undulating jazz sample that features sweet vibe chimes and syncopated snares. The tensions build as the main rhythm drops in for a lovely little house groove just as the filters start working their magic. Dorsi expertly works his sample source, teasing the material out with cheeky, but very intriguing nods to the hay-day of French Touch.

Mitch Murder is back and he’s brought all his wonderful, vintage toys with him. You may remember Murder from his initial relationship with Mad Decent and multiple releases for the imprint. Here, he steps out for the DX Seven Collective label with his “The Real Deal EP” which see’s Murder just as fun and creative as ever.The jubilant ‘Digital Market Place Strategy’ features rigid bass stabs and neon Casio keys and is an unmistakably retro disco stomper.

Always sitting on the fun side of cheese, Mitch Murder crafts an evocative and authentic offering that immediately transports you to a vibrant scene in 80s New York and does so with a real sense of charm.


Our buddy VinylAddicted, the Greek, disco-maestro and head honcho at Editor’s Kutz, Diggin’ Disco Deep, WYMM and now, his latest project: From Disco To House (or just FDTH)… popped over this lovely little rework from the inaugural release of his new imprint. From the track’s title, it won’t be hard to guess where he drew his inspiration from, however, there is a bit of a curve ball as the sample source is from a rare, unknown cover of the eponymous, McFadden & Whitehead classic. Expect loads of chunky drums, filtered breaks and loopy samples that are sure to tickle your boogie feather!

Available next week on a limited 10″ vinyl.
