    For the next release on his MB Disco label, Martin Brodin licences "Nka mo dira" - one of the biggest downloads in South African music history, which has also had its music video voted as the best of the year by The Star newspaper. The track then gets some fine remix treatment from the boss himself as well as Full Pupp label boss and disco pin up Prins Thomas.

    And it is Thomas who goes first, known the world over as one of disco’s foremost innovators, he is boss at Internajsonal label and has his own singular sound that takes its cues from prog rock and kraut as much as disco past and present. What he does with the South African Music Award winning DJ and producer Nutty Nys’s track is very special indeed.

    Over the course of nine minutes it builds in lush layers of pinging kick drums, rasping synth riffs and mellow but meticulous and glowing golden chords. The original’s vocal is left in place and
    echoes in the spaces between Thomas’s carefully crafted rrangements, calling the dancefloor to arms as it goes. The latter half is haracterised by glinting arps and an ever present sense of crescendo that never really breaks, instead teasing you pleasingly right until the end. And so to the label boss’s remix, which has been crafted at the same time as future projects like remixes for Southern Fried and Nang as well as new collabs with one of the members of Scissor Sisters. It’s a slow and purposeful, gluey track of wooden beats and more metallic synths. That contrast is key to it being such an alluring and perfectly party starting record stuffed with tribal atmospheres, the humidity of the South Africa in which it was made and plenty of freewheeling melodies. Rich and detailed, layered and dense, there is still plenty of space within for each element to gleam and glow brightly.

    Yet another fine package from the ever on-point disco outlet that is MB Disco, then.
