Neil Diablo – Let’s Get It On EP

1. Let’s Get It On.
2. Yr Mnd Yr (Dub)
3. Take Two

Neil Diablo has been a cornerstone of the Northwest’s club scene over the past ten years through his El Diablo’s Social Club, which has been a bastion for all things disco and house. Booking guests like Greg Wilson and Eric Duncan, it is well known that Neil is the DJ that the crowds go to hear. Out of the night has sprung EDSC Recordings and his vinyl only disco edits as Evil K’Neil on KAT Records that are highly sought after, selling out in days.

Let’s Get It On is deep tribal business headed straight to the main room. It’s teeth are shown once the organ synth comes in for proper heads down foot to the floor deep house that bites. The latter half of the track gives the 303 a run out and it’s all boxes ticked!

Yr Mnd Yr first saw the light of day on the Paper Cuts # 1 compilation earlier in the year, finding favour with DJs like Justin Robertson, Andy Ash and Love From Outer Space’s Sean Johnston. Here he strips things back for a dub that is tough house music, drawing equal inspiration from Detroit, NYC and Chicago.

Finally he flexes his disco muscles on Take Two. Taking things right down, it’s a rolling funk groove with an off-kilter bass, delayed synths, dub stabs and a sample that does it’s thing in slo-mo style. Music for the head and feet.

Sleazy McQueen – Reconnect EP
1 We Need To Reconnect feat. Anne Montone
2 Rollin’ Me By
3 Under My Spell

Florida resident Sleazy McQueen has been making his own brand of disco for labels like Bearfunk, Hairy Claw and Whiskey Disco. With clean off-kilter production and clever samples, it’s unmistakable, fresh and funk-fuelled. Now he’s done his first EP for Paper and it’s a bobby belter!

First up, We Need To Reconnect takes 1991 and drops it firmly in 2011. It’s got Strictly Rhythm sounding bass, NYC garage piano, analogue synth lines (featuring Gazeebo Intl), disco drums and a hefty bottom end. Add Anne Montone’s vocal and it’s a floor filler that sounds like it’s from the golden age of house.

Next up is the slow burning deep hypnotic disco of Rollin’ Me By, that has hints of Tom Tom Club and Metro Area. Heavily chorused synths, nagging bass and muted guitar makes it deep and immersive plus a clever arrangement provides great dynamics.

Finally, Under My Spell takes it down a notch with a spooky keys and a vocal sample wrapped around a tuned out bass. The whole is a super deep house / disco hybrid.

He’s on tour in Europe for the whole of November so go and tip him a wink

Releases

Rave-enka – Rett I Kroppen EP

Noway keep coming up with producers who offer something fresh and exciting in a world where rave by numbers is often the norm. The next one to look out for is De Fantastiske To’s Rave-enka who mixes up techno, house and disco into a unique arctic stew as this EP perfectly demonstrates.

Rett I Kroppen is an epic disco-tech number purpose built from the ground up for maximum dance floor damage. It’s all about the release and build of the horn and string heavy sample for a track that can cross genres and comes off like a Paperclip People for 2016.

Honningen is just perfect house music; using the raw ingredients of a groove that swings and sample it demonstrates why the best ideas are often the simplest. Add in an arp, some filtering, a dash of Detroit plus dynamics and you have something that sounds like a Scandinavian Moodymann track.

Rett I Fletta brings in a 90s Strictly vibe but keeps things stripped back. Garage drums and analogue bass drive it along before cutting to a pure NYC synth stab for a Sound Factory Bar kind of joint.

Finally, the man who can, Richard Seaborne takes Honningen and beefs things up. With added vocal samples there is no way this can miss and he takes it back to a similar place as his Todd Terje and Tensnake rocking Is This Acid? Expect similar results.

Rave-enka is busy in his bunker recording us an album so expect more block rockers in 2016.
