Waiting impatiently for a bunch of incredible records to arrive - thanks to Monsieur Volcano for the delay. In the meantime check out this amazing new Sidwho? track edited by Jamie Paton (of Cage & Aviary) with a runtime of approximately 1 week. Naturally you can expect some astonishingly funky Swiss bassline action and a more clubby approach to the construction of the track than you'd hear from the band. There's a lovely long Azari & III remix on this 12" too, which I think is out in a couple of weeks on Future Classic. Can't wait to get a proper copy of this burner!

Another strange release from this overly complicated web of make-believe labels somehow tied to Jordan Fields and Loft Records. I still can't work out what the deal is with everything (take a look at Jordan's Junodownload chart for a snippet) and I'm still not sure if these are all just DJ tools. I'm really confusing myself here... Anyway I've done lots of rummaging and finally come up with another track I did. Way heavy on the looping as usual, but this edit by Jacques Bonhomme is really bright and groovy and totally danceable. Big summer disco jam!

Time to dig into the reserves. The B-side to my favourite edit of 2009 by the Super Value crew: this edit of Hit and Run by Loleatta Holloway is a real beauty. Nice light disco with plenty of soulful wailing and beautiful warm vibraphone. And despite bongos being done to death in just about every disco song ever, they really stand out here and make me sit at my screen clapping like an idiot. Super Value Classics is easily one of my most cherished, well-loved records.
