FAB SAMPERI: Moonshine Crossroads

FAB SAMPERI:  Moonshine CrossroadsPacked full of summer goodness, Moonshine Crossroads sees Fab Samperi finally follow up his debut long player (2011’s Power Bossa) with a tardiness matched only by the lateness of this bit of MB shine. As ever though, the contents provide ample recompense for the wait and, as with Power Bossa, Samperi mixes up the old and the new, lacing pumping new beats with samples while a

RORY HOY: Flamingo At The Disco

RORY HOY:  Flamingo At The DiscoDespite being named after possibly the campest thing imaginable, Rory Hoy’s new single Flamingo At The Disco manages to restrain disco’s more flamboyant excesses for a down-to-earth and highly serviceable slab of mirrorball business that should fit nicely into anyone’s nu-disco set whilst also providing a gateway to old school disco sets or those comprised of Mr Hoy’s beloved big beat
