Following previous sold out instalments from Yadava, EVM128 & James Rudie, Partner Music, High Praise bossman Hugo Mari steps up to the plate for the 5th instalment of the label’s lauded edits series. Two action-packed, vinyl-only, bombs set for dancefloor detonation, the A-Side 'Tired Of Sitting Down' channels the past year's sedentary frustrations into a joyous invitation back to the club, whereas on the flip 'Acid Locomotive' is an intense, driving number, complete with uplifting fanfares and (as the title suggests) a little acid-tinged addition. It’s good to be back.
Having steadily honed his soulful sound over the past few years with releases on Heist and Freerange Records, as well as amassing over 2 Million Spotify streams, Hugo has marked himself as one to watch in the UK’s vibrant electronic music landscape. His knack for fusing organic musical elements with driving rhythms and emotive melodies, allows him to craft beautifully uplifting music that works beautifully either at home or on the dance floor, winning support from Jamz Supernova, Tom Ravenscroft, Nemone, Complex, Stamp The Wax, Ransom Note & many more.

Named King of the Edit since the 1980’s, pioneering Manhattan DJ Danny Krivit’s (aka Mr K) latest 12” delivery instils the title bestowed upon him some 30 years ago. An esteemed selector Danny’s prolific remixing and production capabilities have touched hundreds of records – with his signature flare shaping the New York City sound.
Opening the A-Side of the release, is Danny edit this summer’s seminal track The Vision’s ‘Heaven’, interweaving a gloriously groovy bassline with Andreya Triana’s vocal to produce an extended, DJ friendly mix that he sent crowds wild with at Dekmental Festival.
On the flip, Mr K delves a little deeper into the Defected catalogue, trying his hand at The DangerFeel Newbies’ ‘What Am I Here For (Original NDATL Vocal)’. Danny’s stripped back version extends the jazzy, percussive original, as velvety smooth vocals and elegant keys bring this expressive and sophisticated release to a close. A true master of the edit, music as good as this deserves to be heard on wax.

After releases by DoctorSoul, Dave Mathmos, Vibes4YourSoul, DJ Supermarkt, Jack Tennis, Les Inferno we now give space to one of the early creators of the genre: LUXXURY from L.A.!
Side A: is a slice of funky, dubbed/spaced out midtempo Disco, custom made for the sophisticated dancefloor
Side B: is a slow-jam, and a dubbed, balearic romantic take on an AOR classic hit
LUXXURY makes dance music for adults. Raw, funky bass-lines plucked with grown-man finesse. A mastery of keyboard and synth native only to those who lived through the late '70s/early '80s. Dust in the glitter that vibrates in the space between string stabs, bongo slaps, and guitar jabs—even while the steady pulse and astral effects feel beamed in from a more cybernetic future Los Angeles. That's where the nu-disco wizard born Blake Robin dwells, of course. That is, when he isn't on the road opening for Giorgio Moroder or the Juan MacLean; leading his dapper band on late-night TV; remixing live at DJ sets in Mexico City, New York and Berlin; making viral TikTok “Inside the Song” videos, or seeding his Dublab radio show/Spotify playlist Good Morning, Disco! with gems that span four decades of groove-first music. In fact, you might've first felt his deft touch via the controversial LUXXURY Edits—where he uses the multi-tracks (stems) of classic hits to create dubby slow-disco versions—but his original music is no less arresting.
A1. LUXXURY – Hello My Love
B1. LUXXURY – Baby Please Don’t Go (Oooh No)

Rarely does an artist pay homage to the classics like Dimitri From Paris. The Grammy nominated producer, remixer, composer and DJ has made every one of his repertoire of reworks sound effortless; no mean feat when the original tracks are by the likes of Disco’s greatest musicians.

Now the 12’s have their own separate outings, bringing greater focus onto the individual productions, as each vinyl features two of the incredible Dimitri remixes, along with their respective instrumentals on the B-Side. This release showcases the euphoric highs of Dimitri’s remixing skills across Sister Sledge’s ‘Got To Love Somebody’ and Sheila & B. Devotion’s ‘Your Love Is Good’.
