JALAPENO RECORDS: Rock The Disco

JALAPENO RECORDS:  Rock The DiscoWith temperatures in the UK continuing to keep the mercury at heatwave temperatures, it seems only appropriate that Jalapeno Records channel the musical sound of forty years ago on the other side of the pond where another heatwave was occurring and the streets of New York city pulsed along to the rival sounds of punk, hip-hop

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

WAXNERDS: Faith Like This b/w Just Buggin’ Out (vinyl 7″)

WAXNERDS:  Faith Like This b/w Just Buggin' Out (vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Just out, yet another Waxnerds bomb as the former Instagram chat group turned vinyl edit and mash-up kings open the bomb bay doors again, this time with Faith Evans finding herself atop Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band. Since that does sound a bit rude, permit the monkey to clarify: essentially, the Waxnerds crew have spliced Faith Evans’ Love Like This ‘pella to

SMOOVE & TURRELL: I Feel Alive/ Mr Hyde (Vinyl 7″)

SMOOVE & TURRELL:  I Feel Alive/ Mr Hyde (Vinyl 7The monkey told you Smoove & Turrell’s new LP, Mount Pleasant, was on the way and so it is at the end of this month. In the meantime, here is the second single and follow-up to Izo FitzRoy collab. You’re Gone. Entitled I Feel Alive and backed with Mr Hyde – it demonstrates once again that S & T have more than one musical side. The role they’ve carved out as radio-friendly Chic and

OTTO DE ROJAS Y LOS ULTRA 76: Choca Las Caderas / Al Ritmo De Bump Bump (Vinyl 7Matasuna Records deliver more latin action with this lively double-header 45 from Otto De Rojas Y Los Ultra 76. On the one side is classic uptempo latin jazz/ funk/ disco nugget Choca Las Caderas from 1976, adorned with the piano tinkles of legendary ivories-tickler De Rojas.

CHIC: Good Times (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Remix)

CHIC:  Good Times (RHYTHM SCHOLAR Remix)Back in 1979, Chic weren’t best pleased at Sugarhill Gang’s unauthorised sampling of Good Times – even though it wasn’t actually sampled but re-played. Now of course there’s a list as long as both your arm of tracks which have either sampled or replayed this legendary disco nugget, so who knows what the band would make of the Good Times Rhythm Scholar Remix. Of course

JOHN TURRELL: The Kingmaker Remixed Pt 2

JOHN TURRELL: The Kingmaker Remixed Pt 2 When John Turrell got a well-deserved re-release of his solo debut album, The Kingmaker, last year on Jalapeno Records, it was surely only a matter of time before the remix package came out. Or rather packages since this is The Kingmaker Remixed Part 2. But where on earth was the singing half of Smoove & Turrell (the jewel in the crown of Jalapeno Records’ artist

NICK FABER: What Happened Yesterday (Vinyl 12″)

NICK FABER:  What Happened Yesterday (Vinyl 12Rating: ★★★★★ It’s fair to say Nick Faber has been around the musical block a few times. The veteran big beater’s Let Me Hear You Clap Your Hands came out on Marble Bar in ’99, for example; he was king of the beats on John Turrell’s solo album Kingmaker and has previously remixed minor artists like Kylie and Sugababes. His next trick however, is the release of a new 12″ solo single

TIMEWARP INC: Discogirls

TIMEWARP INC:  DiscogirlsTimewarp Inc. with a new single called Discogirls? I think we all know where this one’s going and who with, right? The ladies? The dancefloor? That’s a double ‘yes,’ as Angelos Stoumpos, the main man at the Timewarp Music label drops neo-disco delights. Oops sorry – my bad – ‘nu’ disco delights. Of course, being a generous type, Mr S makes sure you get more than one version of the

HAMMOND CLASSICS: Vale A Pena

HAMMOND CLASSICS:  Vale A PenaDisco got soul? Who knew. Well we all did really, but where to go for those particularly exotic boogie-tinged vibes? Somewhere where the music the tropical humidity prevades the groove to assist in working up another kind of steaminess. How about Brazil? Got to be worth it, as the title – Vale A Pena – of Hammond Classics’ new drop
