House Of Disco

909 heavy house music today from Australian producer Plains. He’s a relative newcomer having only just popped up online but there’s some things to like about this breezy track, although I think it could have done without the siren.

I just keep coming back to this, along with a lot of M.Rux’s edits. His version of the much emulated Wallace Collection original delicately extracts all the dated bits and slings them in the bin, keeping only the best of the timeless hooky vocals and leaving one of the best bass lines in the business intact. Nearly 4 minutes of chorus and I don’t want it to end.

On a day when all the edits out there are starting to sound the same and I’m lost in a sea of familiarity there’s this, a beautifully sunny edit from VOILAAA. They add a tasteful groove to the original giving it some velocity and there’s plenty of little flourishes and ideas to breath new life into an already soulful source. One of the main men behind VOILAAA is Patchworks, one of our ‘favourite’ producers and a man responsible for turning us onto so many quality gems. Thanks to Ludo for putting me onto this one and rescuing me from mediocrity.

Straight up blistering funk for you today as Rosetta Hightower (Daughter of the Police Academy giant…..I swear) gets a re-rub by Dj XS. This is one of those tracks that’s embedded with a warm fuzzy nostalgia. It sounds like a time and place in music history, when R&B was actually R&B and funk ruled the roost. It’s got it all, big brass, bossy vocals and dramatic refrains.

Ok ok I know, it’s another ‘New Order – Blue Monday’ edit, but don’t be scared this ones pretty good. Coupled with the fact that it is, at time of writing, a Monday in the middle of winter this edit from Luxxury under his XX Edits moniker just feels apt. There are interesting details everywhere in this loopy dubbed out version, and we are teased only once with the vocals, but even his treatment of those is classy.
