Journey into the Deep - Shaun J. Wright & Alinka - Twirl

Tenacious party duo from Chicago, Shaun J. Wright & Alinka, debut their label with this tricky disco number. In tow, two mixes from Kim Ann Foxman and Stereogamous twist up the strobing, Tenaglia-inspired disco-fantasy of the original into their respective proto-house variations; both of these warped, system-testing mixes are strewn with the right amount of dazzling disco effects. ‘Journey into the Deep’ turns out to be a promising start and gets a full recommendation.

Coax/Thundare - Graze - New Kanada

From the get go, ‘Coax’ feels like the sound of Graze resetting all the machine defaults after their 'Edges' album dropped back in January. A different beast altogether, there’s a tougher more actual assault to it; from the very temperament of the drums to the timbre of the lead line it feels like it all has a specific purpose. If people overlooked Graze before, coming with a sound such as this certainly makes them harder to ignore.

Stay/Venus Requiem - The Black Madonna - The Nite Owl Diner

The Black Madonna graces Chrissy Murderbot’s The Nite Owl Diner after a tidy release on neighbouring Chi-town label, Argot. Here, we have two tracks of chopped-up disco loops, treated with woozy effects and production retouches — on that vintage NYC bootleg tip. Killer tracks, with my favourite being the extra-special, kaleidoscopic rehash of Barbara Mason’s West End smash, ‘Another Man’. Top marks.  

Wind - Beppe Loda Presents Egotrya - Nang

One of the pioneers (alongside Daniele Baldelli) of the Afro-cosmic sound happening in the clubs of north Italy during the '70s makes his Nang Records debut, and presents it as part of his new project, Egotrya. This alluring, electronic disco number hosts a number of alternative mixes, including the euphoric JMRS ‘Garden Party’ remix and favourites from Faze Action under their Andromeda Orchestra guise.
