Seven Saturdays Running
Ohhhhh boy, let's kick off with this stunning Apiento & Co. record on Leng. Although the original is a beauty, the Pete Herbert remix is easily one of my favourite things he's done in recent times. Really smashing out that piano jam, this is a seriously feel-good club tune. Pete's usual array of synths chatting to one another in stabs and a really solid structure that lifts the dance floor. Highly highly recommend picking up a copy of this, both sides are essential. Bravo!

I know I've taken ages to get around to posting this, but the Loin Brothers' second 12" is super fine. All the right people have been taking notice, particularly TBD on their latest Beats In Space invasion. Each track on the record is fantastic in its own right - the mellow original that touches on psychedelic disco; the more clubbable acid re-rub with big late-night anthem piano chords; Tornado Wallace's deep funky groove that gets things really warm; and Woolfy/Projections' gentle Sunday odyssey that massages your tender head and rubs your aching back with wispy vocals and soft pads. Having the four tracks together on the one record makes this one of 2010's most crucial releases.

Was anybody else massively disappointed by Eric Duncan's 2nd volume of Keep It Cheap? Lazy rubbish if you ask me, something I don't think I've ever said about old mate Dunks before. The most recent C.O.M.B.i. is fab though so I'm not worried. The B (or N) side really does the trick for me, some serious funk disco action for the club. Would love to know the OG if anybody can spot it?

For those of you in Sydney, Mark Seven is playing at a People Must Jam warehouse party this Saturday which is causing severe pant-bulge right here. His 3hr Horse Meat Disco set is truly legendary, if this weekend is even 10% of that I'll be a quivering mess on the floor. Not only does the man have an obscene record collection, but his mixing is better than I've ever heard - for original disco tracks that is. Here are a couple of things I'd love to hear him revisit. Buy a ticket, fassst!!
Revanche - Music Man
Debbie Jacobs - High On Your Love
DSR002, Midnight Savari, is sitting at the pressing plant waiting to be squished into some wax, hopefully should have it ready and in stores by the end of the month! FROTHHHH!
