A little later to press than usual but here are four stunning releases from September for your listening and dance floor pleasure.
FRANC SPANGLER – FIGHT THE FEELING (Delusions Of Grandeur)
Franc Spangler is back on Delusions of Grandeur with his ‘Fight The Feeling’ EP. Three tracks that show a different side to the uber talented Freerange & Delusions label head Jimspter aka Jamie Odell. Here the much respected producer brings the funk and touches of disco designed to intrigue the ears and make the dancers dance. Evoking the 90s with it’s rolling grooves, horns, Hammond slides, and Moogbasslines that make for one unmissable release from Franc Spangler.
AXNÉR – SHOUT FROM THE ROOFTOP (Disco Freaks)
‘Shout From The Rooftop’ has got everything you would expect and need from a sparkling disco cut. Inspired by late 70s disco grooves, AXNÉR have collaborated with Ralph Rolle and Audrey Martells who have both served as members of Nile Rodgers & Chic’s band members. Al Kent weighs in with his ‘Encore Remix’, while John Morales delivers an ‘M+M Club’ and a ‘Main mix’, plus an ‘Instrumental’. It’s the
type of ear worm that will work its way inside your head on a night out and won’t leave you for a while!
RETROMIGRATION – DEAD TECH EP (Last Year At Marienbad)
We are blessed with another Retromigration release with four original tracks on this new EP and a fitting remix from Da Poet. Moving in various directions across the EP, the vibe jumps from deep to jackin’ house, down tempo goodness and a touch of breaks for good measure. In addition there is a thread of perfectly cut and placed vocal samples, groove heavy bass lines and wind instrument hooks across the whole release making this another Retromigration gem to have in the collection.
M.A.D PRODUCTIONS FT. CARROLL THOMPSON – TOO LATE (South Street Records)
‘Too Late’ was made by underground hero, Daryl B, whose legendary garage sets back in the day graced underground parties across South London. Here he joins forces with the mighty MJ Cole to form M.A.D productions for a one-off studio wonder that features Lovers Rock sensation Carroll Thompson. It caused a tidal wave on the underground scene back in the day, but today it is resurrected from the dusty archives and shown the light by South Street Records proving the UKG is back with a massive bang.
