The next installment of Manchester institution El Diablo’s Social Club’s ‘To Rack & Ruin’ edits series comes from Preston lad Paul Watson AKA Watson.

Paul has been a friend of the El Diablo’s crew for many years since working at Fat City – one of Manchester’s finest record shops which is now sadly defunct. The discovery of the edit however was due to Cottam playing it at a Paper Recordings party in Manchester early in 2012.

Side A is a splendid edit of the massive Millie Jackson track which was sampled for the Carl Craig remix of Tom Trago’s – ‘Use Me Again’ track.
Side B is a sleazy slo number with some lovely layered beats.

Early DJ support comes from Cottam, Crazy P, Eric Duncan and PBR Streetgang.

Release date: 21st Spetember 2012

Availble to pre-order now from Piccadilly Records

After nine years at the forefront of Manchester’s all-conquering underground disco scene, El Diablo’s Social Club take the next logical step on their daredevil journey to rack‘n’ruin with the launch of a brand new original material-focused record label.

The debut release in this auspicious series is ‘Funsick’, a lovely little hip grinder from Italian nu-boogie producer Lup Ino, plus three choice remixes from El Diablo’s stalwarts Ron Basejam (aka Crazy P’s James Baron), Begin (Back to Basics DJ James Holroyd) and EDSC mainman Neil Diablo.

Ron Basejam serves up the headline mix – a deep and chunky brain-bugger that will send Croatian coastal boat parties into an unseaworthy frenzy, whilst Begin turns in a much woozier affair – all floating, disembodied vocals and Valium-enhanced washes of synth. Neil Diablo’s own ‘Luv Dub’ is just that: a dubbed-out, loved-up, stripped back version of the original that makes every bass lick and 808 cowbell count.

Limited to 500 copies, ‘Funsick’ will be a big turn on for Dam-Funk followers, fans of the PPF boogie and 80s soul-heads everywhere. Dig in.

Available at all good record shops including:-

Piccadilly Records / Juno / Phonica

The heat is growing on a new set of Neil Diablo edits released this week on Kat Records.  The limited EP, available now from Piccadilly Records, features four hard-to-find tracks given the classic Diablo stretch-aaaaand-relax treatment.

Kicking things off is ‘Cannae Believe’, an Italo / New York dubbed out-disco slo-mo electro-disco cut with synth stabs and ‘Love Is The Message’-esque pads.  Next up is ‘Disco Special’, a ‘walking’ mid-tempo melter which drops guitar-led Balearica, funky bass, arpeggiated synths, syncopated hand claps and space toms a-plenty before lifting off into string-filled ecstasy.

On the flip we have ‘For Your Love’ is a slinky 2-step soul gem originally released in 1982 by the Fats Gaines Band and featuring sublime vox by Zorina. Stretched, diced and strung beautifully back together, this has summer anthem written all over it. Finishing things off is ‘Christina Debs, Behind Bars”.  Originally out on Ze Records and produced in Detroit by Don Was in 1984, this  nu-wave disco chugger adds another dimension to proceedings and this EP feels all the mightier for it.

Rave reactions from the likes of Dave Harvey, Ashley Beedle, Huw Morgan, Tristan da Cunha, Andy Wilson, Jim Baron aka Ron Basejam, Bonar Bradberry, Red Rack ‘Em, Andy Ash, Sean Brosnan, Kev Beadle, and many more.

Spring is here again, tender age in bloom. And how do we know? Because the ever-prolific Neil Diablo has put together another change-of-season mix CD for gentlemen’s couturier du jour, the wonderful TukTuk clothing. Plotting a fathoms-deep and distinctly nautical course through Balearic groovers old and new, this meditative blend will take you where you need to go, NYCE & SLO. Nicolas Jaar, one of the undisputed stars of 2011, opens the set with his new Darkside alias, before John Martyn’s classic ‘Dealer Version’ and Todd Terje’s ‘Myggsommer’ steer us into gently pacier territory. Fold in a bit of Ta’Boo, Linda Di Franco and Al Usher, and you have the perfect accompaniment to a nap on the bow.

TukTuk Summer is a limited edition and comes handily housed in a denim fabric pocket with button fastening.

Available from Piccadilly Records now.
