    I had no idea that Fred Falke was still about, let alone reswizzling old Sheila B Devotion numbers.

    I only came across the Roosevelt remix of Purple Disco Machine's Hypnotized the other day, which has more of a disco groove about it than the original.

    Also everything from Moon Boots, Satin Jackets and Kraak & Smaak, although more of a deep house / nu disco mish mash, are brilliant. Loads of albums and EPs and remixes from them.

    Chromeo and Le Flex also great modern disco / 80s groove acts.

    Love this genre

    God bless you Funky! I'll be making my way through that list and adding any that tickle my disco nips :disco: Satin Jackets are indeed consistently incredible

    I haven't seen any posts from am for ages, did he leave?

    This newish remix of a Miami Horror song from last year is very :disco:



    I like Chromeo very much, but their Corona-themed EP felt about a month too late.

    Am is browsing every now and then I think but seems to be on a posting break.

    @funky, not all of Le Flex was for me but I'll Be Good To You is AMAZING and also extremely George Michael - in fact many of their/his songs give me that feeling

    Yes Le Flex has totally been influenced by George Michael / Imagination mid 80s era. It’s the sort of cheese I can get on board with

    Everyone with an interest in this music needs to listen to this album immediately if they haven’t done so already. It was my soundtrack to 2018:

    I listened to the Oliver album in full this afternoon - it starts and ends strongly. Love Like This, Heart Attack and Heterotopia into my playlist. Thanks Funky!
