MP3 Weekly Recommendations

This week there was been some great new cosmic/disco releases. Here are a few that I highly recommend checking out:
Dimitri From Paris - Return To The Playboy Mansion
Dimitri From Paris returns with his highly successful ‘Playboy Mansion’ compilation series with some more classic and rare disco, house, soul, and dance gems. This very diverse mix compilation touches all the bases with dance cuts ranging from newer tracks like Jamiroquai’s “Cosmic Girl” and The Brand New Heavies’s “Never Stop” to 1970’s disco rarities like Don Ray’s “Got To Have Your Loving” and Gary’s Gang “Let’s Love Dance Tonight”. The compilation also includes some solid new re-edits from the French deejay, including Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terell’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” and Goldie Alexander’s “Show You My Love”. Another great addition to Dimitri’s growing series of ‘Playboy Mansion’ themed releases.
The Popular People’s Front - Limited Series Vol.02 12”
The Popular People’s Front return with their second in the best selling labels Limited Series, with a new white label re-edit 12”. With this record, PPF puts their spin on some rare disco and dance cuts including a solid edit of Candi Staton’s cover of “Listen to the Music”. Their first ‘limited series’ 12” sold out very quickly, so I would recommend picking up a copy while they still last.
Various - Deep Disco Culture Vol Two: Album Sampler 12”
The good folks over at Salsoul/Suss’d records have just released the second 12-inch album sampler to the widely acclaimed disco compilation Deep Disco Culture Vol Two: Underground Disco Rarities & Future Club Classic for all of the disco and vinyl enthusiasts. They couldn’t have choosen three better cuts from the CD-only compilation to include on this sampler with the Rhythm Makers’s “Zone, Sparkle’s “Disco Madness”, and Patrick Cowley classic mix of Tantra’s “Hills Of Katmandu”. A great record for disco collector’s that don’t want to go broke trying to hunt down the high priced and rare 12-inch originals.
