Angel Funke - Disco Nights (Super Fi-Fi Recordings)

Angel Funke descends on the Super Hi-Fi universe from Barcelona, delivering a nifty slice of disco breaks for the label’s tenth release. Angel Funke is a bit of a mystery, but he has previously made contact with deep and jazzy house style releases on the likes of Novo Music and Simposio. His debut with Super Hi-Fi is “Disco Nights,” a cool dance-floor cut complete with growling bass and a fine shuffle break, perfectly bridging the space between nu-disco and funkier, jazzy offerings. Greek DMC champ DJ Kid Stretch next remixes the song in an almost full-on live style with crisp drums, funky organ, rousing percussion, and a complete horn section. Then Brazil’s Trotter takes “Disco Nights” in a more modern direction, cutting up the samples and creating a groove with a 303-style bass line that materializes after the drop. Super Hi-Fi’s own B-Team step up to deliver a dizzying FX-laden future-boogie version spiced with vocoder bits and some tough latin percussion flair to take their version over the edge. Finally, Canadian house-meister Spiltmilk drops “Disco Nights” into a deep Idjut Boys-like dubby groove anchoring dirty guitar and a groovy bassline for potent after-hours power. The remixes in this latest package from Super Hi-Fi are all unique and varied, but still manage to tell the story of “Disco Nights.” DJs rejoice!
