GOODGROOVE presents: SHAKA LOVES YOU (2017)

Shaka Loves You have left it a full year to follow up their first disco drop on the Goodgroove label – presumably because it’s been a non-stop coke-snorting, sex in the toilets, mirrorball hustle during the past twelve months.

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: Love That I’m In 7″ (2017)

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER:  Love That I'm In 7Rating: ★★★★★ Looks like last summer’s Get Down fever made its disco-inflected mark on The Allergies for here is a new 7″ single – Love That I’m In – and it’s all about the Indeep vibes on the A-side. Yes you know, a bass-heavy late 70s/ early 80s style groove with breathy female vox and a rapped verse somewhere down the line courtesy of one Andy “There ain’t a problem he can’t fix

DON DAYGLOW: Power EP (2017) + video

The artist formerly known as Ewan Hoozami might be threatening to go all nu-disco and house on us now that he’s been seduced by the dark side but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t got time for a splendid four track EP of lightly edited straight-up disco biscuits entitled Power. Power? I feel empowered just listening to them – not to mention compelled to reach for my Qiana shirt and tailored

ALPHONSE MOUZON: I’m Glad That You’re Here (DON DAYGLOW edit) (2017) Free download

Im Glad That Youre Here Don Dayglow Ewan HoozamiJazz fusion drummer Alphonse Mouzon was perhaps not the most likely person to release late period disco hit I’m Glad That You’re Here in 1981 but he clearly wasn’t a man to be pigeonholed. Someone else who isn’t a man to be pigeonholed is Don Dayglow. Nope, not another hangover from the devil’s own musical decade but the dj/producer hitherto known as Ewan Hoozami who’s just
