Proviant Audio – Like Never Before

Proviant Audio – Like Never Before

1. Original

2. Sleazy McQueen Mix

3. 2 Billion Beats Mix

4. Ste Spandex Live Hardware Mix

Proviant Audio are back with the second single from their album “Drifty Days & Disco Nights” that DJ Mag described as being “BETTER than Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories”.
It’s a shimmering piece of good time disco that has shades of the 80s and an earworm of a hook. With horns and synths backing up the vocals plus a full band and next level production it’s like summer is still here.

Florida resident and the man behind Whiskey Disco Sleazy McQueen takes things more 4/4 but retains the spirit of the original. It’s got plenty of atmosphere, a locked down bass, handclaps and lovely touches that give it a deep hypnotic feel.

2 Billion Beats go a bit more high energy with a bouncing kick and nagging sample but with their love of all things 80s shining through. The production is kept sparse, ready for the Rhodes that is given free range to do it’s thing and so it does!

Finally Manchester’s hotly tipped Wet Play resident Ste Spandex turns in a distorted nu-school banger. Taking the vocal and parts he stamps his style on it, driving the mix in to peaktime territory .

Rune Lindbaek – Aceness!

The Dead Rose Music Company – Love this!

Lewis Dene – Hauntingly simple and very affective.

Will Tramp – Nice. Lovely stuff!

Patski Love – Sleazy is the winner!

Q-Burns Abstract Message – Mr. McQueen’s groovy treatment is the one for me here … on point.

Cowbell Radio – Lovely stuff, nice choice of remixes but it’s 2 Billion Beats that tip the scales for me (natch)! As always, guaranteed to get people bouncing!

Tensnake – It’s a musthave for sure.

DJ Wrighty (Soul Buggin’) – 2 Billion Beats mix is the the one for me, it gives it a big disco injection.

Dean “Sunshine” Smith – Original for me, a nice slice of shimmer.

Gareth Sommerville – 2 Billion Beats is bestest.

Stuart Knight (Toolroom) – Nice slab of 80s vibes on a friday… thank you chaps

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

Sleazy McQueen Packshot

Sleazy disco


PAPD 23 – Sleazy McQueen – Reconnect E.P. by Paper Recordings

PAPD23
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

Eric Duncan (Rub ‘n’ Tug / Still Going) – ‘NICE!!’
