Cuz Electric - Wonda's Revenge - Yam Who? Remix - Teaser
Midnight Riot Records

Following a lauded appearance on Particle Zoo Recordings, Rich Hall (no, not the grizzled American comedian) and Megan Jones bring their Cuz Electric project back to Midnight Riot. As label boss Yam Who is a big fan of their work, it's little surprise to see him deliver a brilliant remix of "Wonda's Revenge" that sounds like a nine-minute tribute to Odyssey with added kaleidoscopic synth flourishes. The duo's original version of the same track - an electric guitar sporting, arpeggio-driven nu-disco throb-job - follows, before we're treated to two versions of "Holding On". While the duo's original version is a dreamy, rush-inducing Balearic disco treat full of spine-tingling '80s synth-pop chords and jaunty piano riffs, it's Bachgenaur's slap bass-boasting boogie revision that hits home hardest.

Soulpersona Feat Princess Freesia - Sunset City Remixes - Midnight Riot
Midnight Riot Records

The Sunset City Remixes E.P. is taken from the recent Soulpersona concept album, which explores the echelons of a society set in the idyllic fantasy land of Sunset City. The musical backdrop is inspired heavily by the disco, jazz funk, rare groove and soul of the late 70s and early 80s. The grooves are infectious and feature an uptempo score to suit the settings of a disco dancefloor with Princess Freesia colouring the musical canvas with her catchy hooks and vivid imagination. To add an extra dimension to an already great album Midnight Riot have sourced mixes from some heavyweights of the disco world. Top of this list and at the top of his game is John Morales who drops not one but two mixes of 'Sunset City' hotly followed up with a boogie mix of 'Over & Over' by label head Yam Who? Australian edit don Hober Mallow steps his game up with his first official remix on 'Tryin', whilst Midnight Riot's own Alan Dixon gets a big sound with his take of 'SCPD'. Joey Negro on the Sunset City album. 'Disco concept albums don't come along too often these days, which makes Sunset City even more of a treat. The standard of songwriting and musicality is of a very high standard throughout this LP.'

Midnight Riot Records

Brazilians secret weapon Benjamin Ferreira gets his debut release on Midnight Riot. His cut and shut Sao Paulo production styles are reminiscent of his self-proclaimed influences Sound Stream and Tiger & Woods but with a South American touch to it. Chuggy, bouncy and big enough for any dance-floor both are summer anthems in the making. Fellow compadre Renato Cohen steps up for the remix action on 'From Me' providing a mix that builds and builds over time using a distinctly 909 drum sound.

Brian SNR 'Wild Cat' Yam Who Remix Teaser
Midnight Riot Records

Some hot nu-disco grooves from South African producer Brian Basil van Heerden here on the Wild Cat EP. He is founder and owner of the legendary vinyl store Camino Records, DJ since 1998, founder and owner of Strutmode Recordings - in addition to being one half of Janova Jacks and Southside High. From the slo-mo/lo-slung sleaze of "Funking It Up" and the title track - which is followed by by an electric rendition by label stalwarts Yam?Who and the late night boogie down groove of "Flashback" - it is clear that Brian Snr can bring the funk, whatever the occasion!

Moussa Clarke & Zak Gee Feat Rachel Gavaletz 'Still Feel The Rain'
Midnight Riot Records

1. Still Feel The Rain - Original Disco Mix 2. Still Feel The Rain - Yam Who? Remix 3. Still Feel The Rain - Laurent Schark Remix 4. Still Feel The Rain - Classic Club Mix Without doubt one of the most forgotten classic's of the last 30 years, Stex's 'Still Feel The Rain', now reworked by Moussa Clarke & Yak Gee into a new burning disco anthem with Yam Who? & Laurent Schark providing the remix action. The sensational New York vocalist Rachel Gavaletz in true diva style turns out a stunning performance, making this a Midnight Riot classic. 'Still Feel The Rain' is a beautiful slice of Balearic pop soul from the Boys Own, Flying Records era and it was from those early 1990's hedonistic London clubs that evolved around the Gardening Club, Soho Theatre, Milk Bar scene, that Moussa Clarke & Zak Gee first met. The four version are all dance floor based, Moussa & Zak apply 2 modern mixes and their live instrumentation. Yam Who? doesn't mess around, bringing a huge drum groove and 80's inspired touches which leaves us with French maestro Laurent Schark to literally tear things up with a mix so funky that Daft Punk & Breakbot would struggle to keep up with! The catchy as hell chorus, killer horns stabs, funky guitar hooks and glorious strings make this record so highly irresistible, bringing us into the summer & making the Balearic spirit live on eternally.

Towards the end of last year they went into the studio with vocalist Jazz Morely and a boogie masterpiece was born. 'Night Of My Life' whilst paying respect to the past, this modern production is seriously pushing the sound forwards. Electro funk brilliance with a heavy synth bass line, a D-Train inspired hooks served with Jazz’s hypnotising vocals. Further remixes from hottest producer on the scene Dr Packer takes us further into disco land adding some serious extra heat - with a full vocal & a sensational dub workout. Full Intention have worked with some of the biggest names in the industry like Todd Terry, Eric Morillo, Frankie Knuckles, Jamiroquai, Duke, Barbara Tucker, Dajae, Ultra Nate, Aly-us & Inner City and not forgetting their current work for Glitterbox & Defected Records.

Cappa & Daniel-San 'Easy Livin' (feat. Mr Beale) - Yam Who? Disco Dub Mix - 128 Mp3
Midnight Riot Records

Hailing from London but residing in Edinburgh, Tom Capaldi and Dan Steward (aka Cappa & Daniel-San) are a product of the burgeoning disco re-edit scene, rejoicing at the prominence of the genre today but lamenting the lack of original disco music in circulation. Tom’s formative years as a DJ favouring Garage and Drum and Bass, notably supporting DJ EZ and DJ Marky, combined with Dan’s love of classic pop and soul (with Disco acting as the common denominator between the two), has lead the pair to create disco tracks in the classic instrumental mould but with a modern production twist. The much-needed cherry on the icing on top of this funky cake is vocalist Ellie (Mr.) Beale, whose bluesy vocals wind their way around the instrumentals like a jazzy snake around one seriously groovy tree. Having recently signed an EP deal with Midnight Riot Records on the strength of their first two singles, the trio hope their particular brand of genre-straddling disco can reach the same heights as label mates and personal heroes like Late Nite Tuff Guy, Amp Fiddler and Dr Packer and reinvent disco musicianship for a new generation. New dogs; old tricks.

C Da Afro - Playboy Boogie - Midnight Riot Promo Mix
Midnight Riot Records

When it comes to serving up floor-friendly re-edits of largely overlooked disco and boogie cuts, few producers hit the mark quite as consistelt as C Da Afro. The Greek producer has delivered tasty reworks for a dizzying array of labels over the years, none more so than the mighty Midnight Riot. He's at it again here, too, with what we believe to be his fifth outing on Yam Who's label. Choose between the rolling, jazz guitar-laden disco-funk bump of "The Shadow", the filter tricks and effervescent synthesizer/piano solos of cheery disco-boogie shuffler "Moving On Up" and the sparkling, Italo disco-meets-electrofunk brilliance of title track "Playboy Boogie" which is arguably the strongest moment on another fine EP.

Pete Herbert - Expresso & No Big Thing - Feat Bottin & Yam Who? Remixes
Midnight Riot Records

Following last year?s three-way collaboration with Martin Denev and Robert Owens, Pete Herbert goes it alone on his first solo single since 2016. Of the two original Herbert productions on show, it?s the sparkling, Rimini-in-the-mid-?80s vibe of ?Expresso? ? think druggy, Italo-disco style arpeggio bass, warehouse-friendly synth riffs and mind-altering drum machine cowbells ? that?s really floating our boat. That said, the guitar-flecked cheeriness of Balearic disco workout ?No Big Thing?, which contains some killer dream house style piano solos, is also alluring. Bottin emphasizes the track?s dreamier elements on a loved-up electro revision just crying out for sunset plays, while Yam Who throws the kitchen sink at ?Expresso? with predictably impressive results.
