Ze is 30!

Speaking of 30 year anniversaries the one and only Ze Records (through Strut) is celebrating three decades of amazing tunes in the shape of a new compilation Ze 30: Ze Records Story 1979-2009. The album focuses on some of the less celebrated gems (from the likes of Suicide and Casino Music) from the archives alongside Ze classics from Was (Not Was) and Kid Creole & The Coconuts. Have a listen over on Spotify.

For those not acquainted with the mighty Ze, check out the brilliant Mutant Disco comps in three bite size volumes. 1,2,3 .

For your visual delight the amazing Kid Creole & His Coconuts and 'Stool Pigeon' (just don't mention the Dollyrockers ...)

You're Living In A Disco - Forget About The Rat Race!

M's Pop Muzik is 30 (!) years old nearly to the day and it's still an amazing groundbreaking tune. To celebrate the anniversary a whole slew of remixes have been commissioned including a very decent rework from Norwegian re-edit master Todd Terje. Have a listen over on Spotify.

But for my twopenneth, the original's still the one ...

Only Fools And Horses - Spectacle wins (Holy Ghost! Mix)

Speaking of Holy Ghost!, here's a great remix the NYC boys did early on in the year for Only Fools And Horses.

Bar Kays - Holy Ghost (Disco Mix)

Featured on the Rapture's nifty K7! mix last year and probably best known for supplying one of the numerous breaks for MARRS' Pump Up the Volume, Stax house band the Bar Kays' Holy Ghost is a tune in its own right. Correct me if I'm wrong but it may have also been the inspiration for respected DFA discoists Holy Ghost!'s moniker. dis-co.
