ALEEM: Hooked On Your Love (DON DAYGLOW edit)(2017) Free download

ALEEM:  Hooked On Your Love (DON DAYGLOW edit)(2017) Free downloadBack in the day, Aleem, a.k.a Leroy Burgess, was responsible for epic vocals on such Black Ivory bangers as You Keep Asking Me Questions.

DON DAYGLOW: Silky Disco EP (2017)

DON DAYGLOW:  Silky Disco EPDespite previous threats to unleash nu-disco/ house hybrids on the world, dayglow disco don, Don Dayglow, has thus far shown a remarkable propensity for sprinkling edit sparkle dust upon lesser known gems from the golden era of daft suits and mirrorballs. In doing so he provides a subtle lift to four OG – er – four-to-the-floor grooves as in the case of his brand new Silky Disco

DUSTY DONUTS 12: All Eyes On Lovin' (NAUGHTY NMX Cali Mix)/ Keep Your Head Alright (RUNEX Zapped Up Mix)Clearly alarmed by Jim Sharp’s canny attempt to become the ultimate dj fanny-magnet on Dusty Donuts 11 with super-smooth re-versions of late 70s/ early 80s boogie funk, label mates Naughty NMX and Runex launch a counter-attack with Dusty Donuts 12 and their own re-versions of two cuts from the same era.

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Disco Paradise (2017)

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Disco ParadiseDisco Paradise sees Breakbeat Paradise continuing a series of generically-themed outings that have previously taken in 70s funk and dancehall reggae and which, this time, finds the label turning its breakbeat sights on the glittery world of disco. But where on earth might label boss Badboe find a team morally depraved enough to embrace the nefarious influences of the mirrorball lifestyle

ROCKNROLLA SOUNDSYSTEM: Going Back To Cali/ Jolene How You Want It (2017)

Rocknrolla Soundsystem Going Back To CaliRating: ★★★★★ Edit kings Rocknrolla Soundsystem trump all previous efforts with this massive double-A side featuring two mutant mashups. On the one hand you’ve got Jolene How You Want It which splices 2Pac, Dolly Parton and a certain famous Jackson (no, really) for thumping nu-disco boogie-hop action and then, just when thought you knew where things were at, they flip the script

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. That notwithstanding, the new four-tracker, with an almost identical title to the first, Goodgroove presents: Shaka Loves You once again ensures any night is ladies night from

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.

And who better to helm an edit than day-glo disco don, Don Dayglow? For this edit of US Billboard number one hit Lost In Music is indeed his work. Cop it in all its six-plus minutes
