Still tending to the flames of its DJ-friendly volume one, London-based MofoHifi sister label Heavy Disco Records is back with volume two of its recently launched compilation series. Featuring a staggering collection of deep disco at its finest from a select and stellar few up-and-coming producers from across the globe, Heavy Disco’s Deeper Disco compilation brings the Mediterranean heat seamlessly with a fine instalment of warm and funk-infused grooves.
Out now on Beatport.
Following on from instalments on a vast array of labels, including the likes of Ministry Of Sound and Chris Lake’s Rising Music, Roma-residing 21-year-olds Luca D’Angelo and Matteo Soru, professionally known as Fire Flowerz, are back to release their first original track of 2013 in the form of ‘Iron Hill.’
Rife with strong House grooves and concise rhythmic persuasions, the Italian duo provides an incredibly catchy track that instil a strong degree of enthusiastic energy for a genre that is too often dismissed as back-to-back beat tracks.
Always eclectic and rarely found rooted to one locality, globetrotting British producer turned label head Chris Lake has had another solid year on all professional fronts. Back behind the stronghold of his Rising Music imprint, Lake collects the finest spoils of his impending musical powerhouse with a fresh nod to the potential of post-summer clubbing.
Placing classic Electro House synth play against a strong tropical backdrop, Nom De Strip’s ‘Give It To Me’ successfully sets the diverse cluster of tracks in motion, with ‘It’s All Good’ from Birdee exercising strong and uplifting House hallmarks from the outset. While returning label contributor Jim Breese and Chris Coco deal in solid House beats and infectious sample work, Paul Strive’s elegant grooves and sharp laser leads brings a new energy to the ranks of rhythmically charged club cuts. Finished off by Fire Flowerz all-out House overhaul of ‘It’s All Good’, Lake sets a precedent for the quality of independent Dance music despite in spite of the colder backdrop of 2012.
Ministry Of Sound step away from the more popular realms of Dance music to present a post-summer House gem in it’s own right. Bringing aboard Roma-residing 21-year-olds Luca D’Angelo and Matteo Soru who make up the versatile DJ and production outfit Fire Flowerz, ‘Vision’ sees the Italy duo debut on the longstanding London imprint with one of the finer specimens of exotic beat work to emerge for 2012. Fusing instrumentally refined House stylings with deep groove orientated play, ‘Vision’ stays true to its name and shines a bright light for the young Italians’ somewhat futuristic take on the sadly all too often overlooked music style known as disco-house.
