Summer is with us once more and its time for the 6th instalment of the Beach Disco sessions. Six years of summer music for the sun? yup time flies. This year (as in 2014) we have enlisted the help of the highly able DJ skills of “Situation” from the west country of the UK. Ben Vacara and Mr Mullato have done a swell job of selecting and mixing a fine slice of Balearic disco summer for the 17 track CD.
Things open up from the left field and 1980. Mysteriously mislaid tapes from Roland Romanelli and Jannick Top, who had just finished on sessions for Space /(Magic Fly) 3rd album. A slow burner opener. Next we head off Vilnius, Lithuania where Downtown Party Network present a slice of chunky nu disco grooviness. Beach Disco hosts Situation are next up with their “Get To Know Me” a fine slice of soul-disco party, vocal house. Next its jazzy house disco with “County Clonk” with Norwegian Nordic disco-meister Lindstrom on the quirky remix.
Audio Luxury from Russia give us “Every Kiss” and Situation give us some sunrays with “Here Comes The Sun”. Next, Canaries Island resident Ilya Santana hits us up with a brand new tune the hypnotic “Hypo-Disco”. Next we take a trip back to the 80s with Bill Laswells Material partnering with the Chic man Niles Rodgers for some of those un-mistakable guitar chops. Bronx Dogs then get bass guitar groovy followed by Ruff Dugs mix on the classic “Ditry Talk” by Klein and MBO (the song that inspired Blue Monday).
Katzumas “All Night” gets things back into the nu disco groove before building up to the epic which is the AN2 remix of the Space classic “Carry On Turn Me On”. Olej makes his second appearance in the remix department, here mixing “Beach Coma” from Glasgow based Korvids. Tight programmed funk groove is the order of the day with “Find Out” from Future Feelings next. What a groove from Mexican new signings to Nang.
We begin the wind down to the CD with Scandinavian duo Dagfest and their James Walsh sampling endless-summer groove in “I’ve Got The Feeling”. Its Soul-Cal disco next with Sorcerer all the way from San Francisco with his shimmering guitar and a middle 8 to certainly remember. To fully chill out proceedings we end with a special exclusive remix by Situation of “Strange Kind Of Love” from the 1980s band who should have been massive but somehow weren’t, Love and Money.
See you next year and enjoy the summer. Nang.
