New York club night turned label Kaviar Disco Club drops their inaugural release on March 6th which features disco/house from NYC/Philly producers with stripped down and beefed up sample grooves that are true to the NYC sound. The release features tracks from the following Jacques Renault (Let’s Play House, DFA), Matpat (Exploited, 124 Recordings), Evan Michael (Drumpoet) and Higgins (Nervous Records).

We here at Discobelle present you with a vinyl only track, the feel good, soulful and hornlaced stomper “Searchin” from Philadelphia powerhouse Matpat, now feel free to dance away into the weekend.

Local Talk is a Stockholm based label that is well known globally as a trusted source of timeless house music with influences ranging from jazz, funk and soul. Following their most recent releases that have featured the likes of Jacques Renault, Atjazz and Art Of Tones, new release “Testify/Cant U” from Chicago producer Jamie 3:26 and Amsterdam producer Masalo dropped last week and also contains two solo tracks from UK born but based in Hanoi producer Sameed.

Jamie 3:26 provides a cross-Atlantic collaboration with Masalo for the A-side track “Testify” which is a stunning and warm sounding, funky organic house track that is centered around powerful gospel lyrics preaching of pain and strife.

Mix of italo-disco awesomeness courtesy of NYC based legend Jacques Renault, done for the Boiler Room x FIAT party in NYC that takes place tonight.

“Going through my records to prepare for this Italo-inspired mix was a trip down memory lane; I loved it. I thought it would help if I narrowed my options of what to include by picking out records that I bought in various NYC record stores before the Discogs days. If that wasn’t enough, I cranked it to eleven and selected only Italian pressings, with the exception of my U.S. copy of “Feel the Drive”. I’m sure any Italo enthusiast will know all of these tunes, so the point wasn’t to wow you with how desirable the tracks are but rather give you a snapshot of what Italo I did find in the early 2000s that still means something to me today.”

Let’s Play House continues it’s stellar release schedule with a brand new EP by Chocki Hookon appropriately titled Warehouse Jams. The release features two originals and two remixes by LPH’s very own Jacques Renault. “In The Street” is driven by muffled thudding baselines while vintage airy vocal work floats along top, while “Random Madness” features heavy fx and wavey synth work. Renault’s two takes on “In The Street” features more housey piano work, turning the title track into a more dynamic and accessible sound.

The EP is set to be released on April 5th, and is available for pre-order over on Juno.

If you’re in need of a disco fueled fire to keep warm as the winter months hit their stride, might we recommend the latest from Austrian-based, French-born producer, LeSale, and his exceptionally sunny outing on Luv Shack Records. The ‘In Command EP’ features three sun-drenched disco cuts, the vocal stylings of Mavin (aka Manhooker) and remix credits from NYC’s, Jacques Renault… if you need more to drool over, it’s available now on 12″ wax as well as digitally for all you flash-stick jockeys.

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
