We’ve covered London Nu-Disco don Paulie’s Want You in the run up to the single’s release a fairbit, it’s easily one of the big tunes of the late summer. We’ve been eager for the full single release, with reMix package, and this week out wait was finally over. Released this week the track comes equipped with the excellent Monday Club reMix we posted last week and these two gems from our boy Clancy and Dutch producer Kraver.
Clancy’s take on the track is a suitably warm House jam.Rolling on a hook that worms it’s way into your brain played interchangeably by a hammered piano and a deep synth organ Clancy really captures a late night warehouse vibe with his mix. Sitting at the deep and soulful end of the House spectrum, this version mixes a little nostalgia with a little of the UK’s current clubland scene for a result which would rock almost any dancefloor int he early hours. Kraver gets far more retro with his reMix, a sumptuous banquet of electronic Soul and Boogie with punchy digital basslines and thick 80s synths all coming together with some smooth vocoding to take you back in time. the whole single is one of the finest dance released of the year, you should check it out.

♫ Paulie – Want You (Kraver reMix)
Paulie’s Want You is out now, exclusively on Beatport.
We’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of sometime Cosmonaut and deep Disco producer Paulie’s new single, Want You, since last month and with Mondays imminent release we can wrap our ear holes around one of the reMixes, a luxurious boom-filled warehouse mix from enigmatic London producer Monday Club.
Monday Club really lets himself go on this mix. Starting life as a Chicago-esque jam, with almost Bleep House-like overtones the track swiftly evolves into a glorious, epic, collision of Deep House grooves, Cosmic Disco retro-futurism and Euphoric Trance, well, euphoria. You might think that sounds like a mess, but check out the reMix, it’s tight as hell and a dancefloor oddessy with a true musical narrative. Ass kicking bass too!
The new track from CosmonautPaulie, his follow up to the incredibly well received Spread Love. Showing off a totally different style to Spread Love, Paulie proves himself to be no one-trick-pony. The singe gets a proper release, with reMix package, in the coming weeks but for now you can grab the original in all it’s glory for free.
Paulie draws on his background in Cosmic Disco for the spaced out and Dubby Want You. Whereas with Spread Love you were wrapped in deep, hypnotic, House sounds, Want You is an airy slice of vintage Disco with a solid analog-esque Italo groove and an extra layer of subtle, but potent Dubby effects. On top of all this rides a slowly building vocal track that begins blending vocal snatched with a rich vocoded topline and ends up with a powerful vocal crescendo. This one’s going to do the biz, can;t wait for the full single release.
Here’s that reMix of CosmonautPaulie’s début solo single, Spread Love, from Holmes Price we were singing the praises of last week. The single package is out now, so we can give you a listen to this deep Disco version of the track.
Price takes the track into slightly more Houseier territories, keeping things low and clubby. Layering his laid back groove with some relaxed piano Holmes Price gradually builds the track adding sparking arpeggios, more piano, and all the time working reverb drenched vocal snippets, to create a swirling dancefloor vibe. It’s a mesmerizing reMix that pulls you along with it before depositing you in it’s stripped back, undulating, finale. Guaranteed to keep them dancing.
Next week sees the release of the début solo record from Paulie. Paul Sidoli is one half of London-based Cosmic Disco pilots Cosmonauts and ever since he’s been sneaking out mixtapes under his own name we’ve been pretty eagerly awaiting the fruits of his solitary labour. Wrapping up both Cosmonauts space age style and a deep London club groove, Paulie presents his première record, Spread Love.
Spread Love certainly makes it’s mark, and is a confident début for Paulie. It’s a track that’s hard to ignore with it’s deep and compelling House bassline commanding the tune alongside a House/Disco hybrid beat. Spread Love takes it’s time to build up a solid groove, dropping little hints of Paulie’s galactic past into the House mix with popping Electro Toms and shuffling purcussion, all the while repeating the hypnotic Chicago style vocal hook. The track slowly whips the listeners up into a frenzy before dropping the goods about the halfway point and unleashing mesmerising dancefloor euphoria. This is one the coolest kids will be swaying to in the darkest corners of the hippest venues this summer. The single comes correct with two reMixes, a deep groove from Rambla Boys and a shockingly good, upbeat, New York Disco style version from Bath’s finest Holmes Price. Check it out next week.

Here’s a new freebie from London’s galactic Disco dons Cosmonauts. The track takes a slightly different slant to the cosmic groove we are used to hearing from them. This time they are dropping a classic sounding early ‘90’s House track
Suitably, for a retro House tune, Love Me Tonight lifts and tweaks the vocal from the classic 1993 House track of the same name from Anthony White. Cosmonaut’s slow things down a bit and slide the vocal into their own interpretation of deep Chicago jams, complete with digital bass, brass stabs and sample trickery. The guys add their own little flavour to the ‘90’s House revival mix by rolling in a little Tropical percussion and a cheeky hit of space-age buzzing synth work. A nice weekend diversion.

Auxiliary Tha Masterfader is a Dutch Nu-Disco maestro who’s name will be more than familiar to serious synthesizer Disco aficionados. It;s been a while since his The Disco Dictator EP but he returns this week with a brand new release on On The Fruit Records, the Electric Disco EP is truly a thing of beauty, if you like soaring synths, cosmic Disco and vocoder heaven.
The EP kicks off, and quite rightly too, with Masterfader Theme, an impeccably produced Disco epic, that is one part Vangelis, two parts Moroder with equal nods to Cosmic Disco and Italo dancefloors. With a solid rhythm section and a slick late ‘70’s style hook all that’s needed is some vocoded vocals. Oh wait, they they are. Totally a theme tune to be proud of. If Masterfader Theme is Aux’s introduction then Mirror Ball is his dancefloor manifesto. Both rocking and poking fun at the Discotheque at the same time, Mirror Ball bounces along on an Italo bassline and layers it with lush Disco stings, big retro chords and our beloved electro toms. As Aux’s mantra vocoded vocals wash over you it’s hard not to be impressed with the effortlessly perfect production. The man has his studio skills down pat, Mirror Ball is right on the money. As is London Cosmic Disco duo Cosmonauts’ reMix of the track, which lends some piercing vintage synth leads to the tune and brings a laid back, summer-nights-in-space, vibe. The EP also comes with another original Let’s Go a seriously chilled final credits-esque nostalgic jam and a huge Dub of Cosmonauts’ reMix. Auxiliary Tha Masterfader is pretty much taking the Nu-Disco scene to school with this EP, showing ‘em how it’s done.
Cosmonauts – May Top Ten = London’s Disco spacemen, Cosmonauts, are back with this month’s instalment of galactic Funk, Disco and Italo sounds. This months mix is dedicated to the great Donna Summer, who sadly passed away yesterday.
