New York edit dons, Razor-N-Tape Records, release their 7th installment of 12″, scalpel versions and it’s as smooth as Bond, James Bond. With Hamburg based producer, Lovebirds, providing three fantastic cuts to satisfy your boogie needs, we kick things off with ‘Funk So Pretty,’ an extended re-rub of The Purple One’s most ‘erotic’ cut to date.

Next up is the heavy swung romp of ‘Free (Lovebirds Beautiful Rework),’ which twists a forgotten, jazz-pop masterpiece into the perfect soundtrack for your most blissful dance-floor moments. Closer, ‘Donwanchooback,’ is an anthemic take on Ramona Banks’ ‘I Don’t Want You Back,’ and brings this staple disco tune into perfect DJ territory with it’s extended phrases, dubby flourishes and gallons of laser-beams.

These days, Dutch production outfit, Detroit Swindle are a house-hold name in the global dance scene with heavily lauded releases on Freerange, Tsuba, their own Heist Recordings and here, on Dirt Crew where they’ve released their debut album, ‘Boxed Out.’ Today we’ve got their upcoming remix EP on blast which features versions from Jimpster, MRSK, Cuthead and Kaytronik and perfectly picks up where the LP left off. Deep and moody dance floor cuts with heavy grooves, silky vibes and one mission: to jack yo body!

Jimpster kicks things off with his deep re-rub of ‘B.Y.O.’ while MRSK turns is a pounding rework of ‘He’s Just A Guy, You Know?’… watch out for the disco break, it’s pure fire! Cuthead’s take on ‘Me, Myself & I’ is silky, shuffling and sweet while Kaytronik’s ‘Nyte Tyme Remix’ of ‘For The Love Of…” is hypnotic and rumbling.

Available October 27th.

Forthcoming on the mighty, Anjunadeep, the new single from Germany based producer, Lane 8. ‘Diamonds’ shows the young producer coming into his own with a confident stride on this heart-wrenching ode to lost love that features the wonderful vocal talents of Solomun Grey. A shimmering, hypnotic piano riff gently carries us atop a bed of light percussion and bubbly arpeggios whilst Grey’s lamenting voice chroons softly into the cosmos.

Brooklyn based dream pop duo, PROM caught my attention today with their debut EP release, ‘Keeping Company,’ out now on Ghost Beach helmed label, Crazy Heart Records. ‘My Lines’ is the first cut on the EP and showcases the groups aesthetic perfectly. Greasy, analogue synth lines, jangley guitars and lilting vocal washes create a patchwork of shoegaze inspired, pop majesty.

Shiner Remixes

Goddammit! If Denver based producer, option4, gets any better, this blog is going to have to change its name to ‘optionDiscobelle’ because of all the posts we’ll have to do about this guy. His latest remix for Australian stronghold, Sweat It Out comes hotly on the heels of his blinding remix for Sammy Bananas and Fool’s Gold (peep that one HERE).

Here, he takes on Indian Summer and their latest single, “Shiner”, which features Ginger & The Ghost. Brooding and creepy vibes are twisted into an intriguing, melancholic house jammer. Ginger & The Ghost’s Fever Ray like vocals fit perfectly within option4′s unique production alongside skittering marimba riffs and menacing bass stabs.

Alfresco Disco, the deep house collective from Bristol and helmed by Futureboogie Recordings associate, Lukas, celebrates the positive vibes as summer comes to a close with their forthcoming compilation, “Maximum Joy”. Featuring a swath of new-comers such as Seka, Matt Dirt, J.Morrison and Summits, the collection of work here is impressive and varied. Heady cuts like ‘In Deep’ from Matt Dirt channels a vision of tribal drum circles in the Serengeti while J.Morrison takes us to the west side of Africa with his lovely use of The Black President on ‘Some Fella.’
