One of Switzerland’s finest Nu-Disco and House export, Ryan Riot, is set to release his newest single next month via Y Este Finde Qué’s imprint. The release sees him teaming up with Ay Wing for Broken Doll which is due out at the end of July. Not only is it a smooth as hell slice of warm House but it comes backed with a killer reMix from London’s Punks Jump Up to boot!
Deftly integrating vintage Disco mirrorball shimmer into a big Piano House track, Ryan Riot and Ay Wing serve up a soft focus floorfiller. Ryan pulls out his whole arsenal here, from the Warehouse beats to the Topical keys everything is placed for the maximum dancefloor potential. The big hooks and big, yet slightly quirky, diva vocals are present and correct here and keep the track’s energy levels high. For their reMix, Punks Jump Up strip back the groove and morph it into a late-night Acid-ish jam that is vintage sounding Chicago gold, practically a strobe light made audio. Check out those deep, warbling synths; love it!

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.

In the mood for some self-styled Horizontal Disco? Well have no fear because Mr. Horizontal Disco himself, Parisian producer and DJ Zimmer, is back with a brand new tune. Enlisting the help of Norwegian vocalist Emilie Adams, Zimmer has unleashed Escape. Escape is the first track to be taken from his forthcoming EP, Coming Of Age, due out next month via Roché Music. Give it a listen below.
Taking a pinch of Tropical, a hint of Chicago and just a dash of UK Deep, Zimmer serves up one of his trademark beautiful and laid back poolside dancefloor tunes. Escape is loaded with Island riff and a resounding piano hook. Playing out over rooms drums and a percussive bassline Adams’ raspy vocals are neatly interspersed with half heard Sax. This is smokey House music for urban late nights. Summer in the city is here.

One of our prized pick-ups from this year’s Record Store Day was the second reMix 12” from L.A. Future R&B experimentalist BANKS. The reMixes Part 2 release featured two version of her most often reMixed track Beggin’ For Thread; one of which came straight from Belgian Disco maestro Aeroplane. Vito De Luca’s mix has just hit the digital world on his SoundCloud page, so if you didn’t manage to get hold of the record you can wrap your Internet ears around it right now.
You know where you are with an Aeroplane reMix. Vito consistently delivers quality like a brand name you can trust. Cleanly produced Disco and House, bright and shiny, with Pop sensibilities that what Aeroplane stands for and on this reMix he flips BANKS’ enigmatic presence into a bouncy DiscoPop existence, her smoky vocals taking on a new upbeat quality among Aeroplane’s buoyant bass and lush pads.

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.

Australian production duo Back Back Forward Punch have dropped a brand new tune, No Answer, ahead of the release of the release of their début EP later this month. They are giving away the tune, for the sweet price of free, until the EP’s properly drops. We’ve features a handful of BBFP’s tunes and reMixes here on ER so we’re quite looking forward to this EP dropping. Summery Pop House goodness all the way.
From moment one, No Answer hits you with a gloriously Tropical hook and you just know things are gonna’ get groovier from here on in. It’s absolutely carefree and deftly plays between a cheeky Pop song, delivered by Laura Boland’s warm vocal, and a sunshine festival burner. This is how you do Pop House these days; there’s even a twisting progressive breakdown!

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.

Grab yourself a funky fresh slice of French House with the latest tune from Parisian producer Oxford. It’s been more than a while since we heard a brand new tune from this severely talented groover so we’re hoping this is the start of a resurgence of new material. Oxford is giving this one away for free; so download it and stick this smooth jam in your headphones ASAP. Aria will brighten up any day, so get on it.
Oh that French bass! Irresistible. Aria sees Oxford serving up the perfect blend of Parisian Disco and Tropical vibes; taking it’s time to ease you into the tune, this one soon treats you that infectious bass and woozy, stabbing synths. Rolling vocal modulated samples and incandescent melodies in and out of the track, Oxford keeps things interesting and the track evolving. With a slightly raw feel, Aria feels visceral and immediate and, for want of a better word, real. Intoxicating Disco sounds from the Frenchman.
