Welcome to the ever so eighth sun-drenched installment of all that is great and summery in the Nu Disco Universe. Back at the helm after a few summers off is Slovenian superhero and all-around Nang buddy Sare Havlicek at the controls. Sare has deftly compiled and mixed a cadre of fine delights for those summer grooving nights (and days).
Things open up with an exclusive from UK based produced Blue Azure, "Wide Awake" is a prefect of the sound we are trying to encompass. Bags of sun, groove with a touch of swing. Next it is off to San Francisco for a combo of talents from The Beat Broker and Sorcerer, shimmering guitar and sparkly synths all in one package. Goldboy turn in a fine remix of the punchy and synth-stabby "La Vache De Dense" from Les Chevaliers Solex. Things toughen up for a tad with Ron Basejam (from Crazy P) giving us a bass guitar driven dance floor work out of Raykos "No Stopping".
It is summer time in Nang land which means the dials are being set to Balearic. Step forward our all-around good chap, friend and producer buddy Pete Herbert. He has teamed up with Bali based musician and keyboard player Martin Denev to deliver an album of the finest Bali-inspired Balearic House. Hot and balmy evenings here we come.
Hot on the heels of their debut album the industrious Glasgow duo present mini-anthem "Tender Tyrannies". The track features the smooth and powerful vocals of Sarah Brown. The original seamlessly melds a big vocal, jazzy Rhodes, slick swinging grooves, shimmering strums and a overdriven guitar solos.
Our triumvirate of heroes on Nangs big summer tune are UK Producer and DJ Pete Herbert, Bali based musician partner Martin Denev and legendary US House vocalist Robert Owens. They steer their sonic empire to peak-hour, prime time house territory with the epic "Pass Me By".
Next up on Nang we are pleased to present the latest stomper from West Country, UK based collective, Situation. It is a jaunty vocal-house number which features the fine soul vocal talents of regular contributor Andre Espeut.
The track "Standing Here Baby" which recently featured on their debut album on Nang here gets the remix treatment for maximum dance floor manoeuvres.
