GLITTERBOX

‘Love Injection’ is the latest instalment from Glitterbox Recordings, the one and only 21st century disco. Selected by label boss Simon Dunmore, the eight-track double 12” package showcases the finest producers making disco and dancefloor-ready house cuts in the here and now. Rapson, Reverendos Of Soul, BB Boogie, David Harness and Sísý Ey make up some of the contemporary contingent proving that the disco spirit is alive and well. Simon has also included respectful nods to the golden-era voices of Gwen Guthrie and CeCe Rogers.

‘Love Injection’ sets the disco standard while diving into contemporary dancefloor fillers. A brand new cut for the compilation, Rapson’s ‘Heat’ is one of the standout tracks of the last six months. The Disclosure-esque house favourite has been remixed by OPOLOPO, transforming it into a fine disco cut. A compilation exclusive, Sísý Ey ‘Restless’ is a glittering highlight, given a thumping 4/4 injection from the Crazy P crew.

One of the classic inclusions is Gwen Guthrie ‘It Should Have Been You’, a garage staple perfected by Larry Levan. Rounding off the timeless moments on side C is ‘It Must Be Love’ by Alton McClain & Destiny, produced by Northern Soul cult hero Frank Wilson. Simon discovered this gem when it was played by Horse Meat Disco; a memorable Glitterbox moment captured in style on ‘Love Injection’. Another song broken in on the decks at a Glitterbox party, Simon first heard the sound of David Harness ‘We Got It’ when it was played by Louie Vega in London. The simple and hypnotic groove brings things bang up-to-date. Defining the true meaning of ‘dance music’ in 2018, ‘Glitterbox - Love Injection’ is here to move your body and your soul.

Capturing the hedonism of the Glitterbox extravaganza, ‘Glitterbox – Disco’s Revenge’ is selected and curated by founder and label boss Simon Dunmore. The album gets to the very essence of ‘dance music’ in its truest sense; music which moves your body and your soul. The standout tracks are a mixture of brand new funk-laden cuts, all-time house classics and rare disco treasures.

Heard for the first time on the ‘Disco’s Revenge’ compilation, The Shapeshifters lend their unmistakeable soulful house sound into the blend with ‘When Love Breaks Down’ featuring the voice of Teni Tinks. Distilling a universal spirit are iconic grooves like Richie Havens ‘Going Back To My Roots’, Whitney Houston ‘It’s Not Right But It’s Okay’ (KCC’s Release The Love Groove Mix) and Patti Labelle ‘Music Is My Way Of Life’ (John Luongo Remix), all firm favourites with the Glitterbox crowds. Giving a subtle nod to the golden era of dance music, Glitterbox – Disco’s Revenge fuses contemporary dancefloor heat with unforgettably timeless grooves, each track being chosen for its ability to create magic on the dancefloor.

Don't You Want My Love - Inc. Dimitri From Paris Re-Edit

Glitterbox continue their hot streak this week, pairing another MASSIVE disco classic with a fresh reinvention from one of the best in the game. If you're a fan of the world's most hedonistic genre, you'll no doubt have heard Debbie's divine vocals riding a relentless groove, either on 'High On Your Love', 'Undercover Lover' or this stormer right here. Originally released in 1979, "Don't You Want My Love' became an instant classic on the scene, raising every roof with its perfect blend of octaved bass, searing strings and diva vocals. With hot horns adding a touch of funk and killer percussion breaks switching up the sizzling 4/4 this is tops off, hands aloft, poppers au-go-go, scream-a-long brilliance - and it's been sending sweaty dance floors into ecstasy for four decades now. This 2017 reissue sees the stems added to Parisian edit prince Dimitri, who adds oof (not oeuf), oomph and ooh la la with fat bass frequencies, heat treated drums and a subtle use of delay. This isn't the kind of radical overhaul that strips the original of all its charm, this is a production expert turning everything up to 11 for modern DJ deployment. 


STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Glitterbox keep on keeping on, handing us a hefty reissue of peaktime disco delight "Don't You Want My Love", with a supercharged edit from monsieur Dimitri on the flip. Dance floor dynamite right here!

Glitterbox continue to represent the sounds from the modern day disco / house underground, enlisting Folamour to provide the dancing goodness on release number eight for the label. Sharing many of the timeless production traits of golden era disco; lively instrumentation, direct beats and harmonized melodies, "The Power and The Blessing of Unity" plays like a mini album, exploring Folamour's love of house and disco with a fearless intent. The title track sparkles with brass stabs and a textbook swinging disco beat while "Island Of Recent Father" breaks things down into synthy house goodness. "Let’s Grab Some Smokes" channels a more contemporary lo-fi sound before "Home Beyond The Clouds" see Folamour close with uplifting house hooks and percussion. Folamour brings the disco blueprint kicking and screaming into 2017 with a high end mix down, ultra fat mastering and a few nicely modern day processing traits that make it kick, bite and throb on our powerful, high end sound systems. Other than that, the spirit, energy and philosophy is exactly the same as its late 70s counterparts - feel good music to share and to dance to. Folamour keeps the vibe alive for disco lovers around the world, Recommended.
