I Like Disco EP - Lonely Boy - Futureboogie

Bristol collective, Futureboogie, step into the new year with this glowing, electro-disco EP from Lonely Boy. With a name that’s cropped up before on labels such as Miguel Migs’ Salted Music and the Inland Knights’ Drop Music, Joshua Heath’s Lonely Boy has found a suitable place in and amongst that mid-paced disco sound that Futureboogie has been pushing of late. To top things off, The Emperor Machine enters with a gnarly yet appropriate remix.

Joe’s Bakery Presents: Moton - Moton - Joe’s Bakery

Two standout figureheads, in the genre of the disco-edit, collude and show us exactly how it’s done. Yorkshire crate-digging crew, Joe’s Bakery invite Moton’s Diesel and Dave Jarvis to their label for an EP of edits that finds ground between club play and hi-fi spin; chopping up '80s synth jams, sparkling disco oddities and heady, Balearic tones. If you’re a little confused as to where to head next in this often over-subscribed field, then I suggest towards this exemplary release.  




BRZL/She Can't Love You - Bombo Rosa - Punks

Their Punks debut last year was one of the finest breakbeat/bass records of the year, and now South American duo Bombo Rosa are back with another supremely classy double-tracker on the Stanton Warriors' peerless UK imprint. 'She Can't Love You' does the trendy R&B vocal-sampling thing, adding blippy fx and atmospheric synth work for a nicely vibed-groove. But the real find here is 'BRZL', all Future Sound of London-style rainforest chants, heady washed out chords, vocal licks and warm, brooding sub. It's a timeless record from a production crew that deserve to be much better known on both sides of the Atlantic. 

Make Life Gud 4 U - Colonel Red - Apollo

Seasoned singer/songwriter Colonel Red, having last appeared with the cream of the now-defunct broken beat scene, crops up here with a darker, typically soulful but more introspective follow-up EP. Worth a listen.
