IZO FITZROY: Blind Faith

IZO FITZROY: Blind FaithIzo FitzRoy’s back with new disco-soul single Blind Faith – the third to be taken from her forthcoming album How The Mighty Fall. Turns out it’s neither a commemoration of a certain late sixties supergroup nor a comment on the government’s Brexit strategy but a meditation on giving relationships another go when they haven’t been quite what they should. Helping her along on this

TIMEWARP INC: Theory Of Revolution LP

TIMEWARP INC: Theory Of Revolution LPTheory Of Revolution?  Could use one of those in the UK since we’ve forgotten how to identify the corrupt, let alone do something about them. Maybe we should all boogie while everything burns down and if so, what better soundtrack than Timewarp Inc.’s fourth studio long-player? And what a mammoth affair Theory Of Revolution is, tipping the scales at a whopping nineteen tracks

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 94 (MORLACK)

KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 94 (MORLACK)If Private Eye released Katakana Edits they would definitely release Vol. 94 which – once again – features the work of party breaks’ very own ‘Mr Prolific’ – Morlack. Actually, this four-tracker has been out since 20 December but you know how it gets at Christmas. Ironically, now the party’s over, it’s all party action on this. Opener Wipe Mo is a

THE PENDLETONS feat. GIZELLE SMITH: Keep It Working (Jacques Renault remix)

THE PENDLETONS feat. GIZELLE SMITH: Keep It Working (Jacques Renault remix)On the one hand, news that the Jacques Renault remix of The Pendletons’ Keep It Working is rather old – it’s been out nearly a month after all. On the other hand, if the PR comes out on the same day as the release that does tend to eliminate any lead time. So it’s just possibly you aren’t aware that New York disco commando Jacques Renault has taken the disco/ soul-jazz crossover Keep It

RITA RAY: Disco Stu

RITA RAY: Disco StuRating: ★★★★★ Not for the first time, Estonia, of all places, staggers with a spectacular slice of soulful music – in this case Rita Ray single Disco Stu. Now, I realise that title might make it sound like a song about a bloke who wrangles trolleys in Asda car park Monday to Friday and lives only for the weekends when he becomes the local Tony Manero. But it’s not. What it is is a stupidly

CANNON & MIRRORBALL: Black Rhythm Rap/ Makin Time (Vinyl 7″)

CANNON & MIRRORBALL: Black Rhythm Rap/ Makin Time (Vinyl 7So successful was Cannon & Mirrorball’s last set of cut n paste disco antics for the Disco Bits label that they’ve been invited back again to do another 45 – Black Rhythm Rap b/w Makin Time. The latter cuts up Loleatta Holloway’s 1980s hit Love Sensation for a funky nu-disco excursion and in doing so reclaims the track as a sample source from the clammy hands of 90s Italo-house casualties Black Box. For the monkey though, it’s

SANTA SEMELI AND THE MONKS: Where Is The Disco In This Town?

SANTA SEMELI AND THE MONKS: Where Is The Disco In This Town?Looks like today has become ‘disco day’ this week on MB so what better time for London-based outfit Santa Semeli And The Monks to ask (with tongue firmly in cheek) Where Is The Disco In This Town?. Like they don’t already know. Coupling a pumping but funky late seventies groove with the Bowery-flavoured campness of the video (performance artistes and arch looks abound), the outfit fully

MOMO SAID: Sunny Side Of The Street

MOMO SAID: Sunny Side Of The StreetMomo Said finds the Sunny Side Of The Street for the lead single off his forthcoming second album Break The Rules which follows in early autumn. And it’s very much the side of a street that is not merely sunny but forever NYC disco-central circa 1977 judging by the chugging four-to-the-floor Earth Wind & Fire meets Indeep-style funky disco on offer here. I reckon if he topped that off with a
