Spring is on its way and we are about to blossom into our favourite time of year. Yep, Brighton with sunshine. It doesn’t get much better.
Fill yourself with the joys of spring this March with the life-affirming Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez’s Navettes on Musique Large. Filtered-funk-infused disco and soulful grooves await you. Or head over to the warmth of New Jersey as Deep88 delivers some right fine Italo flavoured house with The Black Album on 12 Records. Others worth a nod and a spring wink this month include the soulful adventures of Zona’s Peace, Love & Understanding on 70×7 Records and the slo-jam boogie that is thatmanmonkz’s outstanding Columbusing on Delusions of Grandeur. Too, too good.
As are our March marvels. Every time Joey Negro hits the studio you are guaranteed something special and Remixed With Love By Joey Negro Vol.2 on Z Records is just that. Genius disco retakes that have had us spinning in sequins since it first dropped our way. As has the exquisite Unfug’s The Deep Sea and Its Rivals on Gibbons Records. It’s techno with soul, enchanting, engaging and highly addictive. Purchase and grin.
As for this month’s must-play? It has to be Dinamo Azari’s Estranged on The Vinyl Factory. Stepping on from Azari & I, this is hungry as hell for the next as Dinamo heads to the gritty underbelly of the house scene and comes up smiling. The perfect distraction – however long spring may take in coming. Enjoy.
