  1. HORSE MEAT DISCO III


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Horse Meat Disco 3 picks up where Horse Meat Disco 2 left off last year and I’m digging what I hear so far! Horse Meat Disco 3 is a collection of underground disco cuts that you probably have not heard of before but definitely should as these are the disco cuts that really should be the better known ones. On Horse Meat Disco 3 there are several stand out cuts and edits or remakes/remixes of existing ones. Horse Meat Disco 3 kicks off with French trio Belle Epoque and their hit Miss Broadway with an edit here by Gazeebo. A fun poppy disco cut if you haven’t heard it then it’s certainly worthwhile. Skip ahead to Sweet Dynamite by Claudja Barry edited by Todd Terje! Wow I dig this. I love Claudja Barry’s music and this edit by Todd Terje gives Sweet Dynamite a brand new life! Like Bottin did with Lio’s Sage Oil a couple of years back!

    Next up on Horse Meat Disco 3 is Fuzz Against Jazz and their really funky groovy disco number Born Under Puncher (Harvey’s Punch Drunk Mix). It’s a nice beat and I’m totally digging this cut and it’s perfectly fit in order here. What comes up next is a totally funky disco number which is also remixed by Todd Terje – Moon Jocks ‘n’ Prog Rocks by Mungolian Jetset is one awesome cut on here that I had to repeat over and over again. It sounds like it came from the 70s height of disco music but this thing was released last month. I say it’s amazing.

    By now I’m really enjoying Horse Meat Disco 3 as I love the idea of mixing music from today that sounds like disco and dance from the 70s with disco music from the 70s and 80s. It’s great so far!

    Dimitri From Paris & DJ Rocca Present Erodiscotique’s Downtown is perfectly mixed next into this great mix so far and how can you go wrong with Dimitri From Paris? The guy is a genius and this track, Downtown is quite nice!

    I’m In Love by Yam Who? is a remake of the Sha-Lor classic from the late 80s and it’s great here and I’m In Love definitely deserves the remake treatment as it’s a long lost late 80s dance/house classic. Gosh I can still remember hearing this here in San Francisco back in the late 80s!

    Billie Ray Martin? Yes it’s nice she’s back. Can you remember her in the mid 90s with her hit Your Loving Arms Around Me? Well she’s got great new stuff and this cut Sweet Suburban Disco is a standout. Let’s please get a hit out of this one!

    I think the stand out cut on Horse Meat Disco 3 is You Don’t Know (Horse Meat Disco Remix) by Tambi. This thing is just awesome. I hadn’t heard of Tambi but boy I’m glad I did. You will dig it. Other cuts on Horse Meat Disco 3 include 2 cuts by Sylveseter, Idris Muhammad, The Glimmers (one of my favorite acts as of late) and Two Tons Of Fun.

    Overall a great collection of cuts are represented on Horse Meat Disco 3 and perfectly mixed to perfection by the Horse Meat Disco boys. Worth of owning this great compilation. Preview the tracks below.

  2. Carry On, Turn Me On (Bottin Remix) by Space


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Space is one of my favorite space disco acts from the late 70s! Hailing from the South Of France, they released countless spacey sounding energetic disco tracks with their biggest hit being Magic Fly! From that self titled album this song Carry On, Turn Me On original version is pulled from. Magic Fly the album also contains the excellent track Tango In Space. It’s an excellent album and certainly worth as Space and main frontman Didier Marouani is one of the innovators of electronic dance music.

    Bottin’s remix take on Carry On, Turn Me On is also excellent. It’s part of a killer compilation of great new remixes of Space tracks. King DJ’s awesome remake of Air Force is the highlight of the remix set along with this Bottin Remix of Carry On, Turn Me On. Other remixers include Sara Havcilek doing the remixing on Fasten Seat Belt which I also love and Foto’s Boulevard Of Dreams Mix of Deliverance rocks! Overall Space tracks have been given great new life in this collection of awesome remixes and I highly recommend any disco, electronic fan to own these great remixes and classic releases by Space.

  3. Top Ten Best Underground Disco Songs Ever!!!


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Top Ten Best Underground Disco Songs Ever!!!

    Underground disco is where it’s at! I love disco music but I love stuff that’s more underground than your typical disco song that everyone knows of. These aren’t songs like I Will Survive, YMCA, That’s The Way (I Like It) or Staying Alive. A lot of these underground disco songs on this Top Ten Best Underground Disco Songs Ever list are stuff that barely made it to the top of the charts. Ok maybe Cerrone did but that’s why I have put them at the very bottom.

    Love In C Minor is one of my all time favorite disco songs but you know you can’t find those songs on any American released disco compilations. Nada so I figured it belongs on this list. I also added Boney M, the Frank Farian produced act who’s bigger hits were Ma Baker, Daddy Cool and Rasputin had to be included on here with ther small hit Gotta Go Home which was recently sampled by Duck Sauce for their song Barbra Streisand. If you haven’t heard that then you definitely need to check it out because it’s basically Boney M’s Gotta Go Home beefed up with a couple of vocal stabs thrown in that repeats Barbra Streisand.

    Donna McGhee’s LoveBug was recently sampled by Amplified Orchestra for their awesome nu disco cut I Want You so I had to include Donna McGhee’s LoveBug as it’s excellent on it’s own and as sampled by Amplified Disco. Check out both for sure.

    I’m really more into the European sound of disco music so I had to include Azoto. They had a bigger hit with San Salvador but I think Soft Emotion is just as good if not better than San Salvador. It’s one of those very groovy, sexy euro sounding cuts that once you listen to you’ll want to have on repeat! It’s quite cool! Whatcha think? Keep in mind the first 9 tracks are not in order …

    1. Like An Eagle by Dennis Parker
    2. Minor Disco (Re-Edit) by Ross Carnegie & Co

  4. 40 Thieves Featuring Qzen Covers Hot Chocolate With Don’t Turn It Off


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I didn’t realize that this was a cover until I heard this songs several times. This is a very smooth, sexy and slightly upbeat version of Hot Chocolates Don’t Turn It Off sung by a lady, Qzen aka Susan Langan of 40 Thieves. This version is current with today’s nu disco sound and it’s a perfect version for sexy cocktail sipping at the hottest bars or cocktail parties at home with your sexy friends. It’s also perfect for walks and working out. I don’t really know much about 40 thieves but I did hear this off of a Greg Wilson mix CD, Credit To The Edit of disco and nu disco hits all mixed together. Was worth checking out to see what else 40 Thieves had done but not much more except for this awesome single Don’t Turn It Off covering Hot Chocolate.

    For Hot Chocolate this is certainly not You Sexy Thing but it’s a nice mellower disco number from them from 1979 but 40 Thieves have perfected her. A Permanent Vacation release. Check out both versions below.

  5. Jungle Music by Walter Gibbons


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a great collection of cool edits of underground disco classics by master DJ Walter Gibbons called Jungle Music. These tracks are basically extended mixes/edits of well known and lesser known disco acts that Walter Gibbons used to spin at the clubs he had residencies in. There are cool cuts by Gladys Knight, Bettye Lavette, Double Exposure, Stetsasonic, Salsoul Orchestra and many more. If you are at all into disco or extended versions of songs then this is your compilation. Jungle Music by Walter Gibbons is highly worth owning. One of my favorites is Set It Off (Walter Gibbons 12″ Mix) by Strafe. A classic disco track that I’ve known for quite sometime now and here it’s in a 12+ minute of cool, sexy midtempo disco glory. Lovin’ it very much. Check it out below and check out the rest of the tracks from Jungle Music by Walter Gibbons here.

  6. Why Can’t There Be Love (Pilooski Edit) by Dee Edwards


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I had just recently discovered this great song Why Can’t There Be Love by Dee Edwards off of a Gilles Peterson Digs America Volume 2 CD and now comes this awesome remix/edit by Pilooski! WOW. I love it. I love compilations as I discover so much cool new tunes, remixes, remakes by getting new compilations I don’t know anything about. Anything vintage remixed is perfection for me. I picked up Saint-Germain-Des-Pres Cafe. The Blue Edition compilation and there was this great new Pilooski remix of Why Can’t There be Love by Dee Edwards. I actually still dig the original but the remix by Pilooski just adds the cool big beats to make it more club friendly. I’ve been enjoying remixes by Pilooski lately especially the big remix Pilooski did a couple of years back of the Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons song Beggin’. He has since remixed countless other artists including Nina Simone, LCD Soundsystem, Quantic, Bent and many more. The real winner here is the great remix that Pilooski has done with the Dee Edwards song Why Can’t There Be Love. Enjoy both the original and remix below and check out the great compilations the original and the remix are on.

    Gilles Peterson Digs American Volume 2 is definitely a compilation worth owning. If you are at all into 70s jazzy soul R&b then this mix of tracks compiled by Gilles Peterson is your cup of tea. The compilation included not only Why Can’t There Be Love the original by Dee Edwards but also tracks by Lorez Alexandria, Al Jarreau, Ray Camacho and more. Get it before it’s out of print and not available to own.

    Saint-Germain-Des-Pres Cafe. The Blue Edition compilation includes tracks by CfCf, Ben Westbeech, Dj Food, Mr Scruff, London Funk Allstars and many many more. The 2 CD mix is highly recommended for home entertaining as it’s got a great mix of cocktail type music.

  7. Sucker DJ’s Sample Don Ray With Lotta Lovin’


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Good old disco songs updated? That’s my cup of tea. I love me some disco, one of my favorite genres in the dance electronic genre. I can never get enough of it! If you don’t like disco then I don’t like you! Gosh what the fuck were they thinking of when they were burning and destroying disco records in the late 70s? Americans are so sensitive to dance music! Well they must be sensitive to a lot more because the same freaks did the same thing to the Dixie Chics! Whatever!

    Anyways this song is one of my favorite disco songs. Got To Have Loving by Don Ray from the album The Garden Of Love and produced by Cerrone is a classic from the late 70s. The Sucker DJ’s have taken that classic disco tune from the late 70s and have given it the house/club treatment here and sped it up and adapted it to todays ears. It’s not a remix or is it? Are they sampling the song or not? Can’t really tell but whatever it is it’s awesome. Download now and download more from Sucker DJ’s here.

  8. Spooks In Space (Luke Howard & Felix Dickinson Edit) by Aural Exciters


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This one’s a really quirky, fun sort of on the leftfield disco, new wave, no wave track that I really dig. I didn’t know anything about this really cool disco cut when I was growing up. I discovered it about 10 years ago after picking up the excellent disco compilation Mutant Disco from ZE Records. It’s fun really fun. Finally just earlier this year I discovered this more updated remix of the classic cut from ’79 and all I can say is it’s awesome! There’s not much difference between the two versions except that it’s slightly faster and a little groovier. If you don’t know ZE Records then you certainly have to check it out. It’s an underground New York disco/new wave label which features some really cool acts like Kid Creole & The Coconuts, Material with Nona Hendryx, Was (Not Was), Cristina, Garcons, The Waitresses, Suicide, James White & The Blacks, Caroline Loeb and many many more acts definitely worth discovering.

  9. I Don’t Want To Lose (Original Album Version) by Lime from Disco Discharge: Pink Pounders


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I love this awesome disco music series called Disco Discharge. There are a total of 8 albums in the entire collection 4 of which were released last year and this year 4 more volumes have come out literally! I love the group Lime from the 80s very much. They are a late discovery for me. I only discovered them in the late 90s and since then I’ve been hooked. They have that classic Hi-NRG/synth dance sound and their sound is pretty original and slightly cutting edge compared to some of their other cheesier sounding counterparts.

    Lime were a husband and wife duo from Montreal, Canada who had underground synth pop/dance hits like Angel Eyes, Your Love (which is a #1 billboard dance charts song) and Unexpected Lovers. Their albums had really cool artwork and if you don’t know of any of their stuff do search it out. This song is a fun track in their trademark catchy lyrics and sound. One of the coolest tracks off of the coolest compilation Disco Discharge – Pink Pounders. Most of the tracks off of this collection are Hi-NRG/synth disco dance that were big hits in clubs in the late 70s and 80s. The collection includes tracks by Divine, Patrick Cowley, The Flirts, Jermaine Jackson & Pia Zadora and many many more on the 2 disc collection.

    Disco will never go out of style! It’s here to stay forever and ever. That’s why musicians keep sampling famous tracks over and over again from the disco era! So Richard Dorfmeister (aka Kruder & Dorfmeister) and Madrid De Los Austrias have done an excellent sampling job on their track Boogie No More sampling the classic disco song Boogie Oogie Oogie by A Taste Of Honey. It’s perfect here and the Reverso 68 Remix is just awesome! The single also includes a Kraak & Smaak remix which is also pretty darn good. The Kraak & Smaak remix is a little more on the big beat side which makes both remixes completely different.

    Check them both out below and while you are at it enjoy this live performance of A Taste Of Honey on youtube.

  11. I Want Your Love (Danny Krivit Original Re-Edit) by Jody Watley


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Gosh? Whatever happened to Jody Watley? Well she’s still around and she’s done this awesome remake of the Chic disco classic. I think this is quite the remake – it’s excellent. It’s so good that it’s been on repeat for a while now. I’ve read that Nile Rodgers is actually done the guitar on this Jody Watley version of the Chich masterpiece from the 70s. The Jody Watley single contains so many remixes but my favorite is the Danny Krivit Original Re-Edit as it’s perfect to chill to it. It’s very similar to the Chic classic – it’s a laidback midtempo track. Here’s a list of the versions available from the Jody Watley release.

    Jody_Watley_I_Want_Your_Love

    One listen to both versions and you’ll notice that it’s very similar except for the production sounds more current and the vocals are of course Jody Watley versus the Chic girls. The original comes off of the album C’est Chic.

    Chic_I_Want_Your_Love

    The original Jody Watley version comes from the album The Makeover.

    Check them out and let me know what you think of the two.

    1. “I Want Your Love” (Soulcast Icon Mix)
    2. “I Want Your Love” (Masi and Mellow Late Night Vocal Mix)

  12. Ring My Bell (Miss X Remix) by Miss X


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Here’s a very popular 70s disco classic Ring My Bell by Anita Ward that’s been taken and given the upbeat deep bass treatment by Miss X. I don’t know much about this band and I certainly can’t find any info about them online. Their album is available as a download on Amazon, iTunes and eMusic which is where I downloaded.

    I specifically downloaded the entire album because of this remake and have been enjoying the remainder of the tracks. It’s a great mix of electro pop tracks in the vein of 80s synth pop. Definitely in the vein of Richard X and similar artists. All fun but definitely the track that stands out for me is Ring My Bell. There are some really cute sounding beats on here as well. Some vocals and some instrumental cuts.

    Check it out and download from eMusic. Link to sign up for free 25 downloads here. It’s worth it for sure.

    Out of all the great disco singles I think Ring My Bell is certainly one of my all time favorites and I was very happy to hear this remix/remake by Miss X.

  13. Je T’aime…Moi Non Plus by Donna Summer


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Thank God It’s Friday is the forgettable film about the disco nightlife club world. It has a pretty good soundtrack of music by such artists as Thelma Houston, Diana Ross, Commodores, Cameo, Santa Esmeralda and of course several tracks by Ms. Donna Summer. The big hit on the soundtrack is of course Last Dance. There’s two versions the regular and of course the reprise version just before the last track on the soundtrack – Je T’aime…Moi Non Plus. This of course is the classic 60s French track by Serge Gainsbourg and featuring the great voice of his wife Jane Birkin.

    Unfortunately the Donna Summer version which clocks in at 15 minutes and 36 seconds (pretty long for a track) doesn’t do anything for me. I love Donna Summers music especially the song I Feel Love – a true classic electronic disco masterpiece produced by the king himself Giorgio Moroder but unfortunately this remake just sucks! It sucks just like the film it’s from and it’s unfortunately really, really long so I just skip it. Well I don’t really listen to it.

    What do you think of the two versions? I love the original. You?

  14. Rock Your Body by Shawn Lee & The Ping Pong Orchestra


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Justin Timberlake’s Rock Your Body is a fun disco inspired pop track and was a huge hit for him. But when Shawn Lee & The Ping Pong Orchestra remade it they changed the sound and made it mostly instrumental. It still sounds like Rock Your Body but now they’ve added a loungy, jazzy touch to it with a Latin inspired big band groove. You can still hear that the 70s sound is still there.

    What Shawn Lee & The Ping Pong Orchestra has done with all the tracks on Hits The Hits is taken all popular tracks by pop artists and made it all something you can play in the background without and of the lyrics getting in the way too much. It’s the perfect background music if you want the hits but you don’t want the lyrics.

    It’s a great collection and it’s similar to other collections like the popular Nouvelle Vague series of 80s new wave tracks remade jazzy and loungy. Shawn Lee & The Ping Pong Orchestra’s Hits The Hits is a fun, hip lively collection of pop tracks and Rock Your Body is one of the better cuts on the disc.

    Check it out and let me know what you think of this version compared to Timberlake’s version.
