The sneaky re-edit label, Whiskey Disco, heads for the stars on this interstellar voyage dubbed the ‘Space Dance EP.’ Four chucks of funky, cosmic disco sultriness permeate this vinyl release thats available for purchase here.

Hristo kicks things off with the psychedelic leanings of ‘X-otic Love’ while unknown new-comer, Satisfaction, Love & Passion amp up the vibes with heavy strings and marimbas on ‘Dance (Dance, Dance).’ My favorite, motor-city scalpel wielder, Pontchartrain, dominates the b-side with some serious versions of classic La Bionda and Nightlife Unlimited. ‘Be My Lover’ is a bottom-heavy, almost acidic romp thru the galaxy while ‘Dance With Me’s’ chant is hypnotic and irresistible.

Limited vinyl run, get it while ya can!

UK disco producer, The Reflex, is truth. His edits and reworks are a thing of absolute beauty, impeccable knowledge and reverence of the highest order. Using only the original, multi track master stems for his series of ‘Re√isions,’ The Reflex has tackled such heavy weights as Michael Jackson, Blondie, David Bowie, Queen and Stevie Wonder… twisting the originals into gorgeous, extended work outs (he re√ision of ‘Rock With You by MJ is an absolute monster).

Speaking of monster’s, here we have his edit of another MJ classic, ‘Thriller.’ Though not a part of his re√ision series, we’re treated instead to a staggering level of creativity using only the acapella and instrumental versions of the original tune. Perfect Halloween weaponry for the approaching weekend. Free download too!

NYC night walker, Jacques Renault releases his latest aural assault for the home team at Let’s Play House NYC. The ‘Out Of Sync EP’ features four original cuts that span the gamut of house from the acidic psychedelia of opener, ‘I Like It (Feat. The Emperor Machine), to the 10,000 leagues below deepness of ‘Akron’. B-Side, ‘Make Up,’ is retro in all the right ways while EP closer, ‘M.A.N.’ is the real winner for me here. The blissful pads and funky-worm mono-leads dance over a bed of sparse percussion and a bass line that just won’t quit.

Forthcoming on Let’s Play House NYC. Vinyl – Oct. 27th & Digital – Nov. 10th

Up and coming, UK house producer, Ben Gomori has been all over my radar this year with his fantastic series of free edits that found homes at sites such as House Of Disco, Let’s Play House NYC and right here at Discobelle.net!

Continuing the free vibes, Ben’s latest, gratis offering comes in the form of the appreciatively titled, ‘Thank You For Dancing’ and is a housed up rendition of some classic Mary J. Bubbly bass, stabby chords and chunky beats… one for the steppers, for sure!

After almost a year, the fantastic House Of Disco label come with the latest EP from imprint stalwart, Harry Wolfman and his pal, Skinny Love. The ‘Celebre EP’ features 3 cuts from the duo that certainly don’t disappoint plus remix creds from the likes of The Revenge, JKriv and Kickflip Mike. The title cut is a subby, rolling house joint with bucket-loads of swagger and a sneaky tempo change that’s sure to ignite a dancefloor. ‘Slurpsville’ ups the tempo and leans heavier on it’s disco roots with a slap-bass and chipper percussion… this one gets the remix treatment from JKriv who houses up the joint real good.

Though The Revenge remixes are sure to catch ones attention, I feel that neither of them add much to the originals and are a tad superfluous. Sometimes you need to fluff your pillow, it would seem.

As always, comment on and repost your favourite track to enter a draw to win an advance copy of the vinyl!

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.
