Really feeling this remix Social Disco Club did for Trujillo. Musically it's quite basic but it's super erotic, I really love the way the vocal has been used. Subtlety is what makes this song great, on the surface it seems pretty stock-standard but it grooves hard and deep for reasons that are hard to spot. Can't wait to get this happening in the club, I've got very high hopes! SDC have had a great year.

I reluctantly bought my first Killer Funk Disco Allstars record purely because it's got A Brag Mount, one of my favourite In Flagranti edits. The tracks are good but the pressing is lousy, straight out of the sleeve it sounds like it's been rubbed in dirt for the sake of 'authenticity' and it's so concave I might as well just use it as a bowl. Luckily A Brag Mount is on the usable side so I'll still get some use out of it, and the A2 is cool too - I'm racking my brain but I can't remember who the original is by, can someone help me out? Anyway.. Good tracks, lazy execution. Buy it but don't leave a tip.

Been listening to this cool Kings Of Disco compilation by Dimitri and Joey Negro from 2004 a fair bit. This John Gibbs & The Jam Band track in particular, which was in Jacques Renault's Ones & Twos mix, is a real gem. A little quirky, some overly drawn out percussion breaks, and some fucking rad, albeit brief, electric guitar. Everything about this track really teases me and I have to keep listening to it for those short moments of gratification. Overall great selections and edits on these two CDs, well worth tracking down!
