Culture of Soul just released Joanne Wilson’s “Got to Have You” on 12″ vinyl and included it on their forthcoming Tropical Disco Hustle compilation. Currently on heavy rotation!

Rhythm Scholar gives an updated rub to Barry White’s classic “Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up.” This is a classy remix!
Ash Reynolds really kills it on this re-edit called “Into My Life” for his new label venture called Slightly Transformed.
Psychemagik’s remix of Blamma! Blamma!’s slo-mo nu-disco gem, “Zsa Zsa” is a stylish guitar and synth bed, ensuring us (at least for its seven minute length) that the future is a warm and welcoming place.
