Digital DFA discoists Still Going have been knocking out some of the finest balearicy futuredisco of recent years.

Big Boi from Outkast's underrated recent LP, Sir Lucious Left Foot, went under a few people's radar when it was released a few weeks back. The single Shutterbug in particular was a real highlight and deserved to do better.
Here it is in (hotter than hot) remix form, re-rubbed by Jack Beats and right now appearing in fashionable DJ sets across the globe.

With the new Tron film and accompanying Daft P soundtrack coming up on the horizon, my thoughts turned to the original French discotechnorobots, Space. And no, not the Tom Jones Tom Jones Female Of The Species Scousers!
Dating from 1977, their debut LP Magic Fly and its title track started off the Spacedisco offshoot and sits alongside those other '77 electronica masterpieces, Trans Europe Express and I Feel Love.
Have a look at the video for Magic Fly and see just how influential they were on Messieurs Bangalter & de Homem Christo...

London-based DJs and producers Steve Nolan and Sam Willis (better known as Allez-Allez) have been tearing up dancefloors across the capital and beyond while making some of the most intriguing new releases around on the Kompact-related Boxer Recordings label (including last year's storming 'Defeatest' single).
Their now-legendary blog has been host to some of the finest mixes on all the interwebs with the likes of Hot Chip, Four Tet, Andrew Weatherall, Lindstrom, Optimo, Ewan Pearson and Joakim all having contributed exclusive sets.
This weekend they will be rocking the Stop Making Sense Festival in Croatia (situated on a woody peninsula in the small village of Petrčane on its stunning Adriatic coast) which is sure to be an incredible event.
To whet your appetite for that, here's their recent and very decent remix of Walls' 'Hang Four'.
