Various/Situation – Beach Disco Sessions Vol 5

July 19, 2014 in Albums

Beach Disco Sessions Vol 5 Nang RecordsUK nu-disco outfit Situation step up to compile and mix this latest compilation set from the mighty Nang.

The great and the good of the nu-disco world are definitely conspicuous by their presence here, with Daniele Baldelli, Todd Terje, Prins Thomas, Greg Wilson, Escort, Max Essa, Proper Heat and of course Situation themselves all represented, either with original tracks or on remix duties. Stylistically, expect a heady mix of laidback beach/yacht party vibes and housier, more overtly floor-friendly bizniss – Marshall Jefferson Vs Noosa Heads’ classic Mushrooms even gets a run-out, in Justin Martin Remix form. A surprise inclusion but it kinda works.

For regular Nang buyers, Beach Disco Sessions Vol 5 is perhaps a little too ‘greatest hits’-y to be dubbed truly essential. But it makes for 95 minutes of very pleasant listening all the same, while for newcomers it represents a great snapshot of one of the UK nu-disco scene’s most stalwart labels.

Oh, and speaking of which, they’ve just turned five as well, so happy birthday Nang peeps!

Out: This week

Escort – Caméleon Chameleon

March 3, 2013 in Singles

Escort Caméleon Chameleon NangWe haven’t had much nu-disco on here lately, or at least so it seems to me. So we’ll rectify that with the latest from Nang Records, shall we? Yes, let’s.

Caméleon Chameleon comes from Escort, who Nang are billing as “New York’s disco super-group”. Taken from their debut artist album, which came out on sister/related label Tirk a couple of years back*, it now comes with no fewer than five new mixes. The Extended, Instrumental and Remix Instrumental rubs are self-explanatory, but also included are a Black Russian Remix which features tuffened-up drums, plus – I suspect the reason most people will pick this up – an Ilija Rudman Remix, over which the Croatian producer scatters his magic disco-dust to superb dreamy effect.

A can’t-miss for the nu-disco floors, basically.

Out: This week

About: You can find Nang here, while seeing as I’ve just found it, here’s Ilija Rudman’s own Soundcloud page as well.

*and which is worth picking up for the discofied cover of Dillinger’s classic Cocaine alone
