Detroit disco don, Pontchartrain, drops in for global Record Store Day with this dope little 7″ on upstart, motor-city imprint, Rocksteady Disco.

Cole Medina is a name synonymous with stateside, disco insurgents. His brand of exceptionally laced up reworks, remixes and house cuts are something to always keep tabs on and a sure-fire-bet to light up any dance floor that is keen to shake it’s groove thang. Here, his “Tropical Funk EP” for British imprint, Fly By Night Music is a stellar slice of Caribbean influenced disco that features three cuts from Medina, plus a remix of the title track from Bristol based, ∆dmin.

“Tropical Funk” is an uptempo, timbale-laden heater that harkens to Candido’s “Jingo” with it’s choral chants and relentless horn stabs, but gets a modern update with a funky, Moog bass-line courtesy of Medina. The ∆dmin remix narrows the focus to the harder percussive and brass elements, while b-side opener, “Make Your Body Move,” is a heavy cut, chalk full of all sorts of disco-funk. Wrapping things up on the inside is “Big Pimpin’,” a downtempo cut that is as hazy as “Very Mercenary” era Herbaliser… one for windows-up, El Dorado-hotboxin!

Mexican boogie maestro, The Funk District has been all over my radar with his groove-laden, scalpel reworks. His first, solo offering comes in the form of the latest release from Denver-based, Hotbox Boogie, with the ‘Get On Down EP.’ Kicking things off is ‘I’m Gonna Get You Baby,’ with it’s uber-classy bass riff and slinky guitars. Following right behind is a loopy take on Cameo’s undisputed boogie classic, ‘Rigor Mortis,’ here transformed into ‘Get On Down’ and highlighting the incomparable, Cameo horn section. On the wrap up, we get ‘Feelin’ Alright,’ a filtered, Moog driven stepper that conjures visions of sunsets in Tulum.

Like a perfect breeze of warm, southern air, Falcon Punch descends from the clouds to bless us with his latest in the form of ‘Donald’s Bird.’ A summery, mid-tempo cut from one of the the funkiest Blue Note albums of the 70′s, Flacon Punch does it justice with his Horizontal Disco update that’s chalk full of beefy drums, sweeping pads and a smooth as silk synth solo. Plenty of wonderful jams are up for gratis grabs on the mans SC page… find it linked above and show some love.
