MiGHty mOUse – Discolife Episode 1 = Well, after Monday’s jaw dropping announcement/rant/suicide we said we’d still be serving up mixtapes from time to time, and what better way to hold true to that than the first in a (hopefully) long new sequence from the man MiGHty mOUse. The premiére episode of the aptly named Discolife series is an ecclectic, but consistently funky hour and a half (almost) that’s absolutely perfect for setting up your weekend.

Ronika – HEY ME… This One’s For You Mixtape = Ron can be super selfish. She’s gone and made a mixtape just for herself without a though for whether we would like a mixtape too. What make it worse is the she likes all the same music as us, just look at the tracklist she’s put together for herself. We wish we had a mixtape like that to carry us into the weekend…

One of the UK’s finest, MiGHty mOUse, promised us a string of new dancefloor juggernauts recently with the first in an apparent long line of new single, Luna. And now, true to his word, here’s the second in the mOUse’s Summer series. This one’s called Dusk, it’s out now, and it certainly lives up to it’s name as it brings the easy twilight grooves, ushering you into the night.
A laid back beach House tune with a hint of Cosmic Disco and a hint of a Balearic vibe, Dusk actually takes you on a journey much more intelligent and complex that first appearances would suggest. Powerful and ominous synths growl moodily over a chilled rhythm section, utilises deftly not to suggest darkness, but to build an exciting tension. The track continues to build in this was with hazy vocal samples and droning, but uplifting synths until the breakdown; after which the tune truly explodes with all the anticipation and mystery of night awaiting you. Emotional stuff.

It’s been a few years since we’ve posted anything from Indie-Electro outfit Young Empires. Did they stop releasing stuff for a while? We dunno’. Anyhoo, here they are again back on these pages courtesy of Disco mercenaries Ride The Universe. I refer to RtU as mercenaries ‘cos, like The A-Team, they appear to have gone underground. This is the first hint of new music we’ve had from them in aaaaaaaages. They guys used to be so prolific! Anyhoo, we’re glad of at least something. So sit back, headphones on, and cross you fingers that this means more new tunes from Ride The Universe.
The reMix is actually a bit of a departure for Ride The Universe, especially in terms of tempo. This track is a downtempo, funk laden, almost Future R&B tune as RtU weave their way through Young Empires original brandishing wobbly Moog bass and delicate House hooks. This one is so smooth that we would be surprised if you could even stand up after it’s finished, frankly our legs just melted. the warmest of warm summertime grooves from the transnational soldiers of Disco. More please.

Hot on the heels of his last release, Disco Machine, Dutch analog Disco factory Auxiliary Tha Masterfader has just released his latest. Titled Dark Side Of Disco (judging by Aux’s past efforts and that title I’m sure you know what to expect!) the single is out now in Nein Records and features reMixes from Martin Dubka, Tronik Youth and Horse Meat Disco’s DJ Severino. Aux’s last release was a Cosmic fuelled slab of future Disco, but on this record he inject a sinister vibe into his synthesizer grooves. Check it out.
Six minutes of impending dancefloor doom. That’s what you get with Dark Side Of Disco. An Acid injected slab of Italo Disco that works the murmuring apreggios and sustained synth string to their creepy fullest. Building dancefloor tension with snapping 808 snares and a pulsating bassline until the break, Aux relieves some of the nervousness as the track launces back in with majestic leads to fill your head. Dubka goes full-on Acid Techno with his reMix. A track that could easily find it’s place on late 90s/early 2000’s dancefloors in dodgy London warehouses as Acid Techno took over the free party scene. An unrelenting juggernaut of squealing Acid riffs and thunderous drums all wrapped up in a mind-bending hypnotic groove. This is one to truly hammer yourself on the dancefloor to and just get lost.

Soul/Jazz./Disco legend George Duke’s Latin infused Brazilian Love Affair, the lead track from the album of the same name, is no stranger to the world of Nu-Disco edits. Maybe it’s those cowbells? Maybe it’s the slap bass? Maybe it’s the carefree left-field groove? Something makes the track crack for producers. Just because a track has been given the edit treatment before doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to better it. That’s what Ali Jamieson, producer of some of our favourite edits in the past year or so, has done. And he’s brought his A game.
Slowly layering elements to east you into the groove. Ali builds up the very best bits of the track until the track is full to the brim. Where the original is a slinky, laid back, airy tune, Jamieson’s edit is an exuberant, unrelenting floorfiller that only briefly let’s up for it’s freeform breakdowns before launching back into the laser sighted Funk. Jazz Fusion turned Cosmic Disco. Excellent stuff.

Luna is the new single from one of Disco’s most jet-setting producers MiGHty mOUse. The first in a slew of club tracks the mOUse will be releasing in the coming months, Luna was born on his US DJ tour earlier this year and is the premièr entry in a series of tracks crafted purely for the dancefloor. He is releasing it at just the right time too; as of the weather has got great and festival season is kicking off this is exactly the kind of tune to set the mood. Check it out.
Luna is a track that neatly mixes MiGHty mOUse’s Cosmic Disco roots with a majestic left-field House sound and just a hint of Californian Dreamwave. Quirky and playful, Luna anchors itself on an uplifting piano hook and warm SynthWave keys. Around this appealing core MiGHty mOUse injects an array of quizzical synth sounds and warm, lush vocal samples. Rolled over a thumping beat and a rumbling bassline’’, it makes for a surefire summer crowd pleaser. Banging, but not too banging. Chilled, but not too chilled. Luna is the perfect middle ground.

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.
