Siula Grande

Yet another quality record from the NEEDWANT camp, this time we have Bonar Bardberry (PBR Streetgang) delivering the goods. Title track "Siula Grande" is a killer downtempo groove complete with a slightly menacing bassline & lovely warm minor chords. For those who like to go deeper Pete Herbert (Reverso 68) steps up to remix this one on a slightly more uptempo tip and it's a blinder. On the flipside we have "For All Time" which is all Analogue Bass, Double handclap's & Piano sounds giving this track a great feel. On remixing duties for this we have Burnski (20:20 Vision) who takes it in a totally Disco direction with his relentlessly groovy take, carving out a great version.

A sure fire winner of a 12" which is a great addition to any record box. Nice to see a label keeping up a great standard of releases. Go on NEEDWANT.

Fernando Pulichino is not only a producer and DJ but also a multi instrumentalist, live performer and singer songwriter. Since the age of 14 he has been an accomplished bass player and his many musical talents have grown and flourished making him a prominent player in modern music. Fernando’s extensive discography is testament to his numerous releases under guises such as Silver City, Fernando, Ciudad Feliz, The Spirals, Julian and Fernando and he is also a member of Ralph Lawson’s 20/20 Soundsystem. His singles, remixes and albums have been released on some of the most prominent labels around including Get Physical, Soma, 20/20 Vision, Redux, Bearfunk and Prins Thomas’s Internasjonals, to name a few.
His DJing and live performing talents have meant he has played alongside some of the best DJ’s and live musicians at clubs like Fabric, Watergate, Back to Basics and Space in Ibiza. As well as this Fernando continues to play regularly at festivals like Sonar, Glastonbury, The Big Chill and Garden Festival in Croatia.

In 2010 Fernando’s talents continue to blossom displaying his range of musicality by mixing elements of house, nu-disco and punk for a wide range of projects. As an artist he encompasses an impressive range yet always tailors his performance to the individual occasion, reading the crowd and delivering a well-timed narrative of the best sounds around. His new release on Solardisco Recordings "Spiral" see's him reworking the Vangelis Balearic track, taking it up a notch and into deep disco overdrive. With two other tracks on the EP "Adventure" and "Love Sequence" which are more blissed-out affairs, these will be perfect for those warm-up moments or while reminiscing of sunsets on the Adriatic.

Space Ranger

Space Ranger come from the stars. The trio based in Stuttgart have a wide experience and an unlimited love for music. In their previous disguises they have done remixes for the likes of Kool & The Gang, Sugababes and Kurtis Blow, but now they are absolutely focused on this new project. Space is the place. The three members their DJ careers in late 80s / early 90s and they are strongly influenced by the deep club sound of those days. Combining sophisticated production skills, a huge range of analogue equipment and a long-term experience of what works on dance floors around the world they know how to move the crowds. By accessing to samples taken from a huge collection of old-school dance, disco and soul records they are creating the distinctive and sophisticated house and disco sound of today.

After the success of the "Star Wash EP" the trio present two new boogie banger's from their voyage to the stars in order to make the wait for their debut album (due out in October 2010) a lot more bearable. Cosmic disco galore, with Madrid-based producer Rayko slowing the title track "Superstring" down a tad more and making it even more psychedelic than it already is, and Italian legends Ajello using their stardust on "Shave Me, I'm Famous" for extra space spice. Both releases come courtesy of the brilliant new Lovemonk Records from Spain. Essential listening....

Nocturnal Edits

Following the massive summer release by The Revenge, Disco Deviance returns with number 15 in the series and the debut release from the UK based Nocturnal Music posse. Both edits have been championed by Greg Wilson in his DJ sets over the last year to fantastic response and are seriously fresh, DJ-friendly versions that are ready to ignite the dance floor. First up is "Love Explosion" a cracking version of "Sweet Thing" by Convertion. Packed full of dance floor joy, it drops like a bomb and is a seriously good slice of ecstatic disco reworked for todays dance floors. While over on the flip, the Vincent Montana produced Goody Goody classic "It Looks Like Love" gets cut up, extended and dubbed out to produce a truly stunning new take on this amazing track. Both are respectfully edited, lovingly re-mastered and cut loud at 45 RPM for maximum dance floor pleasure and DJ delight.

Out now at all good record stores such as Phonica, Piccadilly, Juno, Etc.....
