Parody/Progresso - Bottin - Bear Funk

Unstoppable disco machine Bear Funk keeps turning out these quality releases, and over the years we’ve heard some gems from the likes of Todd Terje, Idjut Boys, Brennan Green and Lexx. Now, Steve Kotey’s label makes some more room for one of its longest-serving members, the giallo-disco operator, Bottin, who is back with two tracks of tense, atmospheric, electronic disco; including a collaborative effort with familiar, Rodion. Ace.

Tonight - Earl Sixteen - Reggae Roast

The 1967, stone-cold rocksteady classic from Keith & Tex (written by Derrick Harriot), given the 2015 treatment by Dreadzone’s Earl Sixteen. It’s all there: the smooth, rolling and ultimately sexy rubadub riddim in a digi stylee, with Earl doing a sterling effort matching the sultry and soulful vocals of the original.

I Had This Thing (Joris Voorn Remix) - Royksopp - Green

Joris Voorn won the electro/progressive Money Shot in January with his remix of Audion’s ‘Dem Howl’, and here he achieves similar death-defying results with a rework that again shows his willingness to dither in the more melodic and emotive side of club music. Admittedly, he’s given a superb template to work with by Royksopp; all the melodic elements are intact, as well as the vocal that’s swimming with beautiful melancholy and regret. Voorn strips the bombast back a little, which actually has the effect of making ‘I Had This Thing’ even more powerful.

'Blockbuster Night Pt. 1' - RUN THE JEWELS - Mass Appeal Records

"This tune sounds like it’s up to no good.  Real rude beat and lyrics. Love it."
