We’re very fortunate he took a moment out of his stacked schedule to provide this tasty little mix for our exclusive series.

Athens, GA based disco crusader, Osmose is guilty of providing our latest guest mix… I say “guilty” because he is about to murder your living room dance parties with this hour long, 100% vinyl mix! We’ve featured plenty of output from his label, Smokecloud Records, and we’re finally pleased to bring him in to the hallowed halls of our exclusive mix series.

Out today on Montreal imprint, Editorial Records, comes the latest 12″ from Closed Paradise… a french producer who burst on to the scene a few years back with exceptional outings on Fools & Fables, Kolour LTD and Whiskey Disco. The “Say Hello To My Mother” EP is comprised of four, deep burning tracks that see Closed Paradise do what he does best: craft exceptionally funky dance music from obscure and vintage sample sources. “Asymmetric” kicks things off with a dusty, bass groove and jazzy piano stabs as a roaring crowd cheers in the background. “Dice” leans on some cheeky horn riffs and 80’s inspired leads to create a hypnotic bounce as “Bad Girl” steals the show with it’s push-pull, side chained loveliness. Closer, “Filtered Light” is low slung and bottom heavy…just like we like it. Essential purchase right here!

Snag it!

Editor’s Kutz returns in 2016 with the seventh installment of it’s highly sought-after and extremely high-quality edit series. Assembling an all-star cast of heavy hitters and new-comers, label founder, Vinyladdicted, drops in first with his looped out, disco-house burner, “Shining Bright.” Chunky guitar riffs and thick bass grooves loop to perfection before plunging into a lovely, yacht-rock vocal chorus that’s sure to light up any disco loving dance floor. Dan Johnson displays his skills on the A2 with “Love Affair,” a beefed up take on the classic Jimmy Ross anthem while Get Down Edits and Osmose take over the B-side for some groovy beatdown sounds. GDE do a lovely job reworking a jazz-funk cover of Bobby Womack’s “Stop On By,” while the Smokecloud boss-man lays down the heavy funk on “Get Ready.”

Take heed, disco fiends: THIS IS AN ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!

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.
