Vilnius based producer Boyfriend is quick on the draw and just in time for your weekend fun, here’s his moombahton edit of the new Rihanna and Drake single “Work”.


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.

A double-dose of sleaze for you here today as the lads at Sleazy Beats Black Ops bless the masses with a surprise, 7″ outing with label regular, Frank Booker. This smooth little disc opens up the biznezz with “Sugar,” an ultra-funky chop that features a rubbery bassline and roller-rink bounce straight out of 1976. The B-side finds some classic sample material from Shriekback given the Booker treatment with psychedelic dubs and shimmering synths… a perfect homage to the original while adding a unique and unmistakeable stamp from one of the best Kiwi’s in the game.

Bit late to the game on this one, but better late than never, no? Bristolian, Admin, has been on a bit of a roll for me and rounds out his year with an exceptional outing on the always impressive and highly collectable, Sleazy Beats Black Ops. His “Super Lover EP” is the stuff that wet dreams are made of: it’s slinky, sexy and above all, hazy… like a distant memory of a one night stand.

Opening cut, “Have A Nice Day” is a groovy little number with with a cooing vocal riff and layers of latin percussion…the filter rides are particularly tasty on this one. Next up, “Sugar Loaf” goes deep with chirpy trumpet stabs and soft rhodes melodies while the close out, “Super Lover” treads similar ground as “Have A Nice Day,” but is so irresistible, we’ll just have to let him slide on that one.

This vinyl only release is just about sold out at every major retailer, you’re best bet is to hunt Discogs for a copy HERE.


The lads at Boogie Cafe Records are gettin’ into the spirit of the season and recently dropped this pair of fresh remixes for label boss, JimmyTheTwin’s latest joint, “Get Up.” Both offered for free download, first we have the ultra-funky vibes of Bristolian, Admin with his raw and chunky version that is sure to ignite any dance floor. Right behind him is Mannmademusic, taking the reins and leading us in a deeper direction with lovely organ stabs, honking sax riffs and sweet drones.


RobJamWeb drops a lovely package for 80s Child’s, Masterworks Music, with his “The Cosmic Soul EP.” Four, uptempo disco-house bumpers comprise the outing with a bevy of good vibes and catchy riffs like the anthemic, “Clap Your Hands To The Music” and The Emotions-tinged, “Like This.” “Lover’s Groove” takes things higher with euphoric moans and sunny strings while “Just A Little More” is a horn-drenched, disco roller. Pure dance-floor fire for any crowd that appreciates the boogie.



Ant Plate of Rhythm Plate infamy debuts his latest imprint excursion, Vinyl Only with a supreme EP from his YSE Saint Laur’Ant moniker. With previous 12″s for Whiskey Disco, Editorial, and Pickpocket, you’d be wise to snap this up on sight as the second hand market has a habit of commanding considerable mark ups for the man’s former outings. A lovely four-tracker is what we have here and it showcases the breadth of the YSE Saint Laur’Ant sound: low BPM’s, soulful laments, expert sample sources and fat, fat grooves. Sublime.

Bristol based crate digger, ∆dmin comes correct with his latest EP, “Flute Loops” for the Boogie Cafe imprint. Comprised of three dusty-grooved house choons, the “Flute Loops EP” is a lesson in sample archeology that pulls together elements of latin, jazz and disco produce a psychedelic collage of slow-burning, dance-floor bravado. Kicking things off is the title track with it’s echoed vocal snips, janglely piano riffs and silky smooth bassline holding down the entirety of the a-side. Flip it over and you get my pick of the bunch, “No Problema,” a sleazed out latin affair with relentless Rhodes piano and an exceptional, percussion filled groove. Rounding things out is “Drifting Away,” which relies on some spooky trumpet riffs that harken back to Miles Davis at his funkiest and most experimental.
