Portuguese Disco producer Rui Maia, better know to you fine folks as Mirror People, originally dropped I Need Your Love back in February ahead of the release of his début album Voyager. The track is now getting a full single release equipped with a couple of reMixes including this stormer from Paris based Dutch duo 2CV. Check it out.
2CV serve up an eclectic slice of analog Disco on this one. Layered with electronic bleeps and whirs, the duo put together a slick combination of retro Disco beats and ringing vintage synths belting out a bouncy bass and warping lead lines. Weaving the original’s vocals in and out of their synthetic symphony, 2CV manage to create some order from this dancefloor chaos.

Ahh to be in the late 80s in an Indie club! Before BritPop made British Indie music shit Happy Monday’s were riding the Madchester wave to Indie-Dance glory. On the cusp of a new decade they released Kinky Afro, and now two decades later New York Disco dons Sunrise HWY are giving the track another spin. Not content with a couple of True Romance released EPs, this trio are giving this one away for free. Give your ears a treat.
Sunrise HWY stay true to the groove of the original while making it well and truly their own. The cover has a raw, immediate, Disco feel. Despite being loaded with smooth keys and heavily processed guitars, the track has a gritty, grimy feel that lends itself to the song well. We will admit it’s a little odd to hear those verses not sung by Shaun Ryder, it’s like Rowetta singing the whole song, but it really does work. With a nice little Acidic undercurrent Sunrise HWY have turned in a fine cover version with a slick funk all of it’s own.
Last week we premièred the AIMES reMix of the new single from Dutch groover Auxiliary Tha Masterfader, Disco Machine. Alongside AIMES, RipTidE and BroKen DJs step up to the plate for reMix duties, but right here, right now, we’re going to take a listen to Aux’s boogiefied original. The single is out right flippin’ now via Brixton’s Nude Disco imprint, but before heading on over to pick up a copy check out Disco Machine in all it’s Extended Mix glory.
Aux breaks out the vintage galactic Funk for this one. Disco Machine revels in it’s Italo and Boogie DNA; it’s undulating bassline laying down solid ebb-and-flow foundations for all manner of synthesizer noodling gentle vocoding. Sounding authentically like an early 80s European dancefloor hit, Disco Machine sets up all the genre’s tropes for Aux to give them his own person spin. Synthesizer gold.

French multi-Grammy nominated Disco legend Cerrone returns to his classic Supernautre this year, now with Beth Ditto in tow in vocal duties. The track has been reMixed by French Touch pioneer Alan Braxe (not for the first time) and is out now as a single, and precursor to the forthoming Best Of Cerrone album. The reMix has got it’s very own video. Indulge yourself.
The video is very gold. A towering gold tribute to all things retro and all things Cerrone.

Dutch Disco don Auxiliary Tha Masterfader and Brooklyn’s dancefloor master AIMES go full Italo with his new release. Due out next week on Brixton’s Nude Disco label, Disco Machine is Aux’s new single (the original of which can be heard on the recently released Nude Disco Selections Vol 2 compilation) and features reMixes from the likes of RipTidE and BroKen DJs. It’s also been taken to synthetic heaven by AIMES. This one is pure retro electronics gold. Get involved!
Brace yourself for a six minute robo Disco assault. A dancefloor Terminator. AIMES offers up every machine beat, vintage synth and vocoded vocal in his arsenal and wraps them up in a smooth and funky delivery. This one is loaded with popping electro toms, spikey synths, a choppy bassline and a silky galactic groove. As the hazy mechanized voice commands you to “dance”, it hard not to comply. Think Kraftwerk under a mirrorball.

Aussie duo Holy Models are gearing up for the release of their second single. Following their début on Eskimo Recordings the Lo-Fi Disco outfit have teamed up with High Above Ground to unleash Lessons. The singles comes equipped with a whole host of storming reMixes, the Falcon Punch reMix is already doing the rounds but we have honed in of this storming track from the man MiGHty mOUse. Check it out below.
If you’re in the mood for squelchy synth bass then you’ve come to the right place. The mOUse serves up a ever climbing Cosmic Disco best with vaguely Acidic overtones. In contract to some of his more House-y recent output, this one sees MiGHty mOUse doing what he does best; galactic, quirky, intoxicating Disco. Synth heavy and unshakably funky. Revolving around a razor sharp riff that ebbs and flows as the track progresses, this reMix of Lessons takes the dancefloor along for a ride as it dips and builds. Deceptively complex in it’s layering of sounds, it’s a track you can truly sink into.

It’s been a while since we’ve had a new original tune from Dutch Disco wizard Auxiliary Tha Masterfader, a string of awesome reMixes recently, sure, but originals? It’s been a while. Now the man has hooked up with Mason’s record label, Animal Language, to release his storming new single. It’s called Feel About U, and it’s out this week. Hold tight for the bouncy synth groove.
Aux wastes no time hitting us up with a powerfully infectious walking bassline. Simple and effective, the bass worms it’s way into your head, setting up residence while Feel About U unleashes some massive, soulful vocal samples and lush vintage synths. Aux switches up between thick retro chords and tight leads, creating a multi-layers nostalgia fest. There’s nothing frantic about this one, a mid-tempo, laid-back, Disco burner perfect for chilling to on hot summer evenings.

After premièring it on their recent Music To Show Aliens When They Land On Earth mixtape, Du Tonc (the globe trotting team-up of Matt Van Schie and MiGHty mOUse) have unleashed their the surprise tune from that mix. A reMix of Pixies late 80s/early 90s Indie club staple; Monkeys Gone To Heaven. As a prelude to their forthcoming new single, released later this month, this reMix is bound to keep you going for a while.
Effortlessly blending a bit of Indie nostalgia (if you like that sort of thing) with their magical Tropical Disco sound, Du Tonc strip down most of the original, keeping a few grooves and vocal snatches, but manage to hold onto Monkeys Gone To Heaven‘s feel with Matt Van Schie’s trademark Disco dream basslines and the waves of lush synths and wicked little licks we expect from these two. It’s a track the you can’t help but smile about, particularly if you’re familiar with the original. Summer goodness right here.
