Horse Meat Disco & Kathy Sledge

Falling Deep In Love - Inc. Joey Negro Remix

Big disco manoeuvres this week as Glitterbox drop the first of two new singles from Horse Meat Disco and founding member of Sister Sledge, Kathy Sledge. Co-produced by Classic Music Company boss Luke Solomon, the nightlife champions have finessed their unstoppable strutting disco style with ‘Falling Deep In Love’, perfectly representing the Glitterbox sound at its freshest on this 12” release, offering a sublime preview to their forthcoming album. Sledge’s unmistakable soulful vocals paired with the impeccable production and live instrumentation give this record that classic disco sound reminiscent of some of Sister Sledge’s classics. On the flip Joey Negro delivers his funk-laden Disco Blend, with the house master demonstrating his spotless knowledge of the genres to create a cut destined to light up Glitterbox dancefloors and beyond.

In case you haven't noticed, us hobbled veterans of the disk shop inquisition effing love disco. In fact, we buzz off disco so hard, we enjoy every one of its forms; be it slow and syrupy, French and frothy, slack, sleazy, smacked out or whizzed up - delivering a diva scream or a dubbed out instrumental. But deep down, what we love most is the kind of stomping uptempo assault which leaves you reeling in the middle of the dancefloor, love hearts fluttering across your vision. Enter Debbie Jacobs and here HUGE "Don't You Want My Love". Now Debbie has a bit of form here, and you may be aware of her equally incendiary "High On Your Love", but this particular platter thunders through smooth strings, wild clavinets, pumping bass and a killer clap-heavy 4/4, making moves like a dance floor UFO taking off. Then there's the vocal, soaring from the purest powerhouse contralto into massive mezzo-soprano, spinge-tingling and life affirming in every way. Alongside their reissue of the original, Glitterbox now hit us with a special remix package that features Joe Claussell’s 1986 Reel To Reel Edit - a disco extravaganza of a mix - and Cratebug’s house-infused and funk-laden More Love Remix. 

Glitterbox & Purple Disco Machine drop their first mixed compilation album. A leading light of contemporary disco and a key resident for the brand's internationally celebrated parties, Tino Piontek, aka Purple Disco Machine, has distilled his acclaimed headline DJ sets into two mixes; "Purple Disco Day" and "Purple Disco Night". Featuring over 30 tracks, Purple Disco Machine showcases an impressive decade-spanning repertoire of gems, from underappreciated golden-era disco to newly-released vocal house, plus two exclusive edits from the artist himself, all mixed beautifully in Purple Disco Machine’s unmistakeable, acutely modern style.

"Purple Disco Day" builds just as a Purple Disco Machine afternoon festival set would, the deep tones of Paul Alexander’s voice and deconstructed funk of Forrrce "Keep On Dubbin" (With No Commercial Interruptions) making way for the sunshine sounds of Yuksek & Bertrand Burgalat’s "Icare" from 2018. A trio of classics brings up the tempo, followed by more newness from Horse Meat Disco direct from the Glitterbox stable, Dele Sosimi "You No Fit Touch Am" (Medlar Remix) and the first brand new edit from the man himself, Ilija Rudman featuring Andre Espeut "In Her Eyes (Purple Disco Machine Edit)". The edit, which has taken pride of place in his sets for a while now, is Purple Disco Machine at his deepest, leading seamlessly into a covetable Kenny Dope mix of the Boris Dlugosch collaboration "Love For Days" featuring Karen Harding. "Purple Disco Day" demonstrates the sophisticated restraint of a DJ who truly knows how to apply pressure and when to hold it back, producing a mix that works on a home stereo as much as it does on the dancefloor. On the flip, "Purple Disco Night" starts strong with two huge remixes from Purple Disco Machine himself, Shakedown’s "At Night" and Weiss "Feel My Needs", undeniably two of the most-played reworks of the last six months. The heavy hitters keep coming; Mighty Mouse’s "The Spirit" providing the energy and Moloko’s "Sing It Back (Mousse T.’s Feel Love Mix)" providing a euphoric singalong moment. Purple Disco Machine’s second exclusive edit is of Julien Jabre ‘Swimming Places’, a timeless Defected classic from 2005 with so much emotion, brought tactfully into 2019 with a fleshed-out bassline. Documenting the full might of Purple Disco Machine’s production credibility, no mix would be complete without his irresistible remix of the seminal "Praise You" by Fatboy Slim and of course the crossover hit "Dished (Male Stripper)", once again proving he can’t go wrong using his remarkably unique disco sound with a modern twist.


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: It's nice to see Defected and Glitterbox delivering a killer compilation here via star signing Purple Disco Machine. I've practically grown up with Defected, and it's nice to see them still churning out modernized disco and house classics for all the peasantry to enjoy. Yeah, it might not get NTS's 'Pick of The Week', nor will it set the beards of your local Balearic aficionado on fire; but Sharon, Tracey, Ned and Me included will all be losing our shit come Saturday night, dancing round our hangbags and avoiding fisticuffs outside come closing time. Excellent!

Honey Dijon is the main magnet for many and if you are not familiar with her, do please check the Sugar Mountain 2018 DJ set online. Legend. Now, here we have this activist house record by Fiorious who enlisted Honey Dj to do couple of remixes on the flipside. 
 
On the A Side, Fiorious strongly focuses on the vocals and the great key sample - yes, that is a very well known riff of a sample, but my memory does not serve that well. Let us know if you find the source. The beat is chuggy but full of soul and warmth. The bass and all the effects thrown on top make this stadia ammo. 
 
Big name Honey Dijon ups the tempo, chills it a bit wit the vocals and concentrates on the heavy groove and bass. She gives you a dub and an instrumental version. What is not to like. 
 
No tea no shade, this is powerful stuff. 


STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Mega house track combining vocal, diva(ish) 90s house with trance flicks that fit the bill for your future festival gig, stadium dj slot you will be getting soon. Or not. In any case, get this terrific weapon. Honey Dijon steals the show. Again.

Sticks & Stonez Feat. Liv East

You're My

Modern disco stable Glitterbox continues in earnest enlisting new signing Sticks & Stonez into their race-winning squad. With Liv East riding the track on vocal duties, this special 7” release illustrates the East London duo’s capability as producers, taking influence from modern house and disco. The combination of the instrumental horns, slick production and East’s smooth vocal makes for a blissed-out record that transports you to hazy Summer days. The stripped-back instrumental version also features on the release, offering an insight into how the carefully curated track balances its musical elements. Another gold medal on the disco circuit for Glitterbox and first best in show award for this upcoming act. Recommended!

Tom Laroye and Yam Who? return to Glitterbox as Qwestlife with another soulful cut, for their latest musical offering, ‘Hit It Off’. Written by acclaimed soul artist Benny Latimore, and made famous by Millie Jackson in 1979, the track was translated for dance music world when sampled by Tom Trago. Fast forward to 2018 and their take on the 70’s classic features the unmistakable voice of Teni Tinks, a session vocalist to the stars, who featured on Glitterbox releases like The Shapeshifter’s ‘When Love Breaks Down’. Tinks brings true diva flair to the track, and with the joyful chorus and smooth production, Qwestlife once again demonstrate their ability to craft modern disco with traditional analogue techniques, creating glorious dance-floor vibes and honouring a truly classic track. Available on 7” vinyl for music connoisseurs everywhere, a track like this is destined to be heard on wax, with a Disco Soul Instrumental version also available exclusively on the vinyl release.

Millie says: Disco anthem right here! This is a massive soulful-disco hit which Tinks has put her own stamp on, with an equally groovy instrumental side. Hit it offff!
