Radio Ponsonby Record Review: Horse Meat Disco II
HORSE MEAT DISCO II
This is the second killer collection of underground disco, Italo cuts & proper disco rarities that have been dug up & lovingly (lustingly...?) delivered by a quartet of British DJs with a clubnight known as Horse Meat Disco.
These are tried & tested cuts - Horse Meat Disco residents James Hillard, Jim Stanton, Severino & Luke Howard aka Filthy Luke have given these sticky sweet selections the sweaty dancefloor treatment, from their clubnight in Vauxhall, London, to dancefloors worldwide - including residencies in London, Lisbon, Berlin & Istabul.
The clubnights are notoriously inclusive, with homos, heteros & every sexual shade in between shaking what their Mommas gave 'em right alongside one another. Horse Meat Disco II captures the essenceof the clubnight, with an essential selection of New York classics alongside a host of lesser known underground disco gems - getting repeat plays on the stereo at Casa del Nyntee are the tracks You Can Get Over by Stephanie Mills, I'm Not In Love (Girl You're In Love) by Freda Paynes sister Scherrie &the Italo oddity Touch Me Now by Bravo - each seemingly more fruity than the next.
A pleasure? Undoubtedly. A guilty pleasure? If you're comfortable in your own skin, this really is just a whole bunch of smiley-faced fun. Slip this on your stereo, strip down to your smalls & get amongst!
In A Nutshell: as fruity as your Nana's Christmas punch with a kick like a rogue bull elephant
Nyntee's Rating: SEVEN & A HALF studded leather chaps out of TEN
