From the tropics comes Whiskey Disco, a sneaky re-edit label bent on dredging the decanter for diffident dancefloor genius from latent disco perpetrators. It's loosely connected to Sleazy McQueen and his assorted cohorts.
Whiskey Disco #9, Discofobia, teams four edits from Perishable Vertebrate and Rayko. The former, a mysterious individual you may know from somewhere else if you're in the know, kicks the A side off with a great dub-out of D-Train for “Failing To Get Under,” a very energetic slow jam. Next up, “Glazed Dog” is a real Honey Puppy! Synthetic percs, singalong vocals and a wicked break make a great chain reaction.
On the B side’s “Discofobia,” Rayko brings the dub for this pitched down cheese pop. Everyone knows the album cover for the original but no one has heard the single sound so right. And then ... hey dancefloor, watch out! B2 arrives with the Rayko Dragon Soul Edit of“I Got Your Number.” We definitely don't suffer from Discofobia here.
Tooli (Local Talk Records) - "Whiskey Disco, what can I say... Been following the label for quite a while and it's always great to discover a new release. This release should have a warning sign: Do not play unless you want to spend the next hours on the dance floor doing some serious damage to your hips. Five stars from me!"
Chris Todd (Crazy P / Hot Toddy) - "'Failing To Get Under' and 'I Got You Number' are both great and will be playing for sure."
Monsieur Monod (Sleazy Beats Blog) - "BOOGIE! I have a major soft spot for Whiskey Disco. Love the boogie feel of 'Falling To Get Under' and the wonky 'Discofobia' in particular. I can't wait to try this out."
Gavin Hardkiss (Hawke) - "Tasty ... sloppy ..... messy!"
Cuki (Red Bull Music Academy Austria) - "Yes, quite like these little beauties. Slo-mo house disco business is always welcome. 'Discofobia' has that really nice Kid Creole feel to it."
Rune Lindbæk - "Cool!"
Joshua Ferguson (Dialogue, Inc) - "While the nu-disco scene gets more and more homogenous, populating the airspace with more and more watered down house beats and redundant arpeggios, disco edits remain a vibrant part of the alternative dance scene. This batch is no exception. Can't wait to drop the digi-needle on 'Failing to Get Under' this weekend."
