Nang presents: The Array
Volume 10

Nang Array time again. Its spring and its time for our annual dust down of the triumvirate of goodies from our musical closet. One third hits from last year, one third (hopeful) hits from this coming year and one third something quirky and exclusive. We open with some Icelandic bouncy disco from NY based Wanton Boys Club. A perky opener for sure. Next we have two massive names of the electronic scene coming together. Vince Clarke (of Erasure, Yazoo and Depeche Mode) paired with the original space disco classic "Magic Fly". A fine synth electronic rework. Things get vocal next for label firm favorite Ilya Santana here providing some slick keys and sold groove to the vocal lines of Linda Axelsson.

Its time for some Balearic house disco next with an exclusive from dutch producer Black Marlin. Sungrooves and big beats. Italian label stalwart DJ Rocca is next with his low slung groover "Nassau". Lerosa Rimini dub doing the business here. Changing tack quite drastically its off for some hi-energy disco with Hard Tons clever blend of opulent and extravagant power disco. 5 Reasons give us an updated version of their Nitelights smooth Russian disco next. Newcomers Soda Pimps follow with the arpgegiated and swinging "Angels 10 Fox One Away".

Recent hit "Dance All Night" from Kontinents makes a welcome re-appearance here with its soulful Sare Havlicek groove. Madrid based Manuel Costela gets funky next with his choppy guitar funk disco floor filler. Its off to space next for some intergalactic disco from Italian trio Light Cycles. To round things off first it's the exclusive "Misterisio" from DJ Rocca. This one is part sci-fi sound track part exotic pan-disco. For the digital listeners it's one more bite of the DJ Rocca cherry with an exclusive instrumental version of their Flock Of Seagulls "I Ran" remix.

10 years already...phews. Enjoy 2019 and see you next year.

Ilya Santana feat. Linda Axelsson
Starlight

Another epic four tracker coming from one of Nang's most prolific artists, Ilya Santana. The Spaniard has released on labels like Tusk Wax's sub label Porn Wax, Rare Wiri, Retrospective records and has remixed the likes of Rayko, Italo Brutalo, Julia Sanza and more.

The new EP features his single "Starlighter" with Landa Axelsson on vocal duty: the track is a relentless 80s Italo roller, entirely crafted for the dancefloor. Alongside the wonderful original vocal version and instrumental, International Feel's contributor Rune Lindbæk & Andrea Dama provides us with a broken beat mix, a brainier cut that crosses over genres and moods. Timeless. The EP closes with Italo Disco legend Rayko's unique mix: the Italo maestro keeps the vocal playing here and there but strips down the groove and adds a big fat bassline, driving the track the whole way through. Deep into space. Powerful.

Kontinents feat. Shusha
Dance All Night

'Dance All Night' is the first EP from Russian/Hungarian duo Kontinents who impress with their sleek production and proficient songwriting. Based in Moscow and Budapest, Peter and Holic (head honcho from Space Walker recordings) combine to create polished Nu-Disco with a warm, lively twist.

Actress/Singer Shusha features on both songs on the EP, her voice and melodies perfectly accompanying the duo's groove-infused instrumentals.
