Peaches, Grades and Disco

Peaches, Grades and DiscoSpaniard disco don Rayko, founder of Rare Wiri Records, has thrown out his edit of Whip & Contagious, a slow-mo funked-out disco groover. Cop the whole release on wax here.

Hailing from Belgium, Mickey serves up some serious dancefloor disco, with slapping beats and stunted piano chords galore. Disco with a punch. And of course it helps that the delicious vocal sample comes courtesy of US soul and house legend Colenel Abrams:

No doubt the esteemed scenesters amongst you will have got wind of this one by now. Yes, Peach Melba is the new house project of The Juan Maclean. Exciting indeed. Only this is the 'dub of the dub', meaning it's more dub techno than straight-up house. A slightly inferior offering to either the original or dub: the vocals are all but stripped away, and the bassy beats wield a clunkier, darker vibe. Be sure to check the whole release:

Retro/Grade have a bit of a Marmite effect on listeners. Personally I love their new track 'Mindfighter', there's something epic and yet gleefully shameless about the whole thing. The Blue Satellite remix is a frenzied rework, with plenty of twists, turns and funked up electro warps and wonks. It doesn't posses the ominous, spine-tingling build up of the original, but a fun remix nonetheless:

Deep and soulful disco from Andy Hart's edit - with more than just a hint of sleaze:
The Crusaders - Spiral (Andy Hart Edit)
