This young 17 year old producer hit me up a few weeks with some track, they were great, but his recent submission to us really caught my attention. It’s bang on point, deep tech / bass house with a chicago / East coast feel, vocals pitched to perfection, dirty basslines and it builds like a skyscraper, it’s more than banging and I’ll be playing this one out for sure. He’s only just starting to build a following, but if he keeps dropping them like this, we’re pretty sure it won’t take him too long to get noticed, get on it now!
This weekend the boys are back in town, and making Waves Warehouse party is once again doing it’s thing at The New Empowering Church in Hackney. I was on the last line-up, back in Dec, doing my thang.. It was goddamn awesome and the line-up for this one looks just as delicious. Spektrum are performing their new track ‘Ambush in Istanbul’ live, and on deck duty is the wonderful Ron Basejam, Bradley Zero, Yam Who?, Comadisco, Electric Boogie and Capita! that’s a tasty line-up if ever I did see one.
To get you warmed up, Yam Who? Has put together a little disco mix to get you in the mood.

Recently I did a post on guilty pleasures I guess this could fall into that category, only there’s nothing guilty about my pleasure for Blondie. Heart of Glass is such a seminal track, but I just stumbled across this and it’s a wonderful remake of the track by Oliver & Thee Mike B. Staying fairly true to the original version, just beefing it up a bit, adding more modern drums and some new exciting sounds.. and there giving it away as a freebee download too, thanks don’t mind if i do.
I’m such a HUGE Huxley fan, I’ve no idea why I’ve not posted his stuff before now, better late than never though. So Here’s a couple of recent bangers from him:
His most recent EP ‘Who Am I’ came out on the 6th on Rinse. 3 massive Garage / Bass House tracks, particularly loving the title track from this.
His recent EP ‘Bellywedge’ which came out on Hypercolour back at the end of March is banging too, 2 heavy tracks, Little things in particular with it massive hands-in-the-air rave style synth stabs
But by far one of my all time fave Huxley tracks is ‘No Matter What’ a bit smoother Garage / Bass House, but mega. Literally can’t get enough of this song.
I keep stumbling across this track in various forms, the original is a fun Ghetto Hip-Hop crossover style track, It’s kinda like kreayshawn meets Major Lazer meets Flozell. The track is infectious and Miss Eaves vocals are delicious, but when this remix by goldFFinch dropped in my inbox, it properly hit the spot for me, goldFFinch has given it a smoother Deep Bass house flex, choppin up and pitching the vocals and changing the hip-hop beats into four to the floor grooves. It’s free to DL from XLR8R.
and actually it would be rude not to give you a slice of the Original action too. which you can download HERE
Just as the title suggests it’s a Banga.
Yet another amazing EP from Waze & Odyssey. This one drops on the 27th May on their very own Vinyl Only label W&O street tracks. Two tracks of the finest upfront East Coast sounding House music, choppy vocals, banging shuffling beats, and synth stabs to make you tingle. Pre-Orders from Juno HERE:
Those Blonde boys have done it again and delivered a rather tasty little track to our inbox, furthermore to our delight they’re offering it away as a free downlowd. It’s got a nice little summer vibe, with chilled out future garage beats and lush vocals, it’s going straight in my record box I tell you.
Grab the download link from HERE by liking their Facebook page.
When I first heard Eliza Doolitle was the featured vocalist on the new Disclosure track I was a little skeptical to say the least, not that I’ve anything against Eliza, just wasn’t sure how her vocals would sit in a future garage nature, as we’re used to hearing her in her chillsey vibe. I reserved judgement and was pleasantly surprised, her vocals are in fact perfect. Needless to say this is another huge track from the Boys, who are quite frankly on fire right now, bang on point. The beats in this track are more 2-step sounding that previous commercial releases, going back to the Old-Skool garage feel, but it’s produced to perfection, and despite my apprehension, the vocals are killer. It went straight into no 10 in the UK charts this week and I’ve a feeling it might be around for a while, just like Disclosure themselves, who ain’t going nowhere I tell you and trust me, that pleases me no end. Keep the bangers coming I say.
While we’re on the subject, Disclosure recently released the tracklisting for their forthcoming album ‘Settle’ which includes a new collab with Jessie Ware and a collab with Jamie Woon plus more to boot, to say we’re excited is an understatement.
So it’s no secret that here at Lipstick Disco we’re big fans of Love Not Money records, consistently outstanding releases and their latest release is no exception. Their latest offering is from Leeds based producer Jay S with a little help from his friends Sweet Beat & Ostertag. 4 tracks of deliciousness. My personal fave is the fourth track, S. Jay Feat. Sweet Beat – No Problem , which nicely samples the Aretha vocals from Pride Deeper love, as well as Last Night A DJ saved my life, perfect! This badboy is avaialable from Beatport, or general release on 13th May, theres also a cheeky little free download for you. Grab it, fondle it, caress it and love it!
and it doesn’t stop there, their last release from Ali Scott is also a banger. A little three track treat, two original tracks and a remix of the title track by A Lister.
And not for fear of overkill, one more release from them, which quite frankly is the creme de la creme, a whole goddamn 20 track album full of special musical treats, more excited than a kid in a sweetshop about this one. A few notable faves, Nik James – Crazymaker, Dene Anthony – Peace & Harmony (which is the money shot for me!!) Luke Gibson’s – Osmosis and a nice little contribution from label owner himself Luke Pompey teamed up with Will Crawshaw for their track – Crowd Control. But I highly recommend giving the whole album a spin.
I’ll leave you with that for the time being, else I’ll just end up posting the entire back catalogue, most of which is already featured on the blog anyway. So get your money out and show some Love for some outstanding music. Get downloading.
So here’s a little track that was released last week on Secret Life Records, the producer in question is Robot 84 and the vocals are yours truly (Michelle Manetti) just a little something we worked on. Label manager Pete Gooding has also done a rather nice little remix, both of which you can here samples of here.
While i’m on a little self promotion tip, thought you might enjoy my latest mixtape, some serious bass driven Deep House.
Tracklisting is as follows.
1. Motor City Drum Ensemble – Send A Prayer (Part.2)
2. Real Nice – Oooo! (Original Mix)
3. The Acropolis Sound – U Down
4. Dansson & Marlon Hoffstadt – Shake That (Original Mix)
5. Duke Dumont Ft AME – Need U (100%)
6. Michelle Manetti – Give It Up
7. Dusky – Nobody Else (Original Mix)
8. Blonde – I Loved You
9. Lars Vegas – The Game (Original Mix)
10. Waze & Odyssey – Found The Rhythm
11. Citizen – So Submissive (Original Mix)
12. Artful Dodger Ft. Zoe Kypri – No I Turn You On (Disclosure Remix)
And one final shout, the Ruben & Ra remix of my own production ‘Give It Up’ which also features my own vocals. This was released recently on the ISM records futurism compilation, ahead of the release of the EP, which will also feature the original alongside an Ashley Beedle remix, which of course i’ll be featuring on a post soon.
So this remix from Manchester based producer Jouhl just found it’s way into my inbox and it pleased me no end. Jouhl is a rising star and part of Ben Pearces label Purp & Soul. The remix forms part of a three track EP by Jacksun Fear which is due for release on 20th May. ‘Break’ was actually a summer release for Jacksun fear last year, but Jouhl breathes new life into it for their ‘rumble’ EP coming out on Invader Music. Delicious beats, sexy vocals, can’t ask for more.
So our friends over at Never Say Never have done it again and provided us with a 12 track album full of fresh and funky Disco House, Nu Disco and Disco funk and all as a free download, too good to be true I hear you say, and too good to say no i’m telling you.
And if you like that one, show your appriciation and put you hands in your pockets to pay for this little EP from Luminaire.
So a young Leeds based producer named Nathan aka Shacklo contacted me with some rather good Deep Bass driven House, the track was released on Miami based label So Sound Recordings on 6th April and it sounds like this..
and to our delight a remix EP will follow shortly, with one of our faves Daniel Curpen doing the remix duties.
Whilst we’re on the subject of Daniel Curpen, his track’s we featured in an earlier post (view here) finally have a release on UK Based Label All Over It Records, which is releasing some very tasty house I must say. Daniel’s EP includes remixes from Ozzi, 5eighty6, Daniel Palmas & Andrew C and is due for release on 17th May.
Now back to Shacklo, we also want to share this rather lovely mix of Nina Kraviz which he’s giving away as a free DL.
So London based DJ / Producer Ash Reynolds hit us up recently with some rather tasty music, so we thought we’d share it with you. First up he gave us a taster by way of a free download as a prelude to his Debut EP. ‘If You’re Lonely’ certainly whet our appetite.
Then his debut EP dropped on the 18th March on Dobara Music. Ash has been DJing for over 12 years now and in this time has developed a very eclectic taste in music, however he does have a soft spot for all things disco and funk and it is with this in mind he stepped into the studio to be able to showcase his own 21st century interpretation of Disco. Honing his skills for several years, he feels he’s finally ready to share his music with the world and we’re glad he has, this is delicious disco at it’s finest. Take a little listen for yourself.
