This is cracking. Classic Aretha, with our favourite track from her seminal 1972 album Young, Gifted & Black, given a once-over by Dublin’s Eoin Long. Eoin is a stalwart DJ/producer in the Dublin scene having held residencies in some of the city’s leading nights. Check more of his tasty edit work on his soundcloud.
PS as we found out to our detriment a week or two back, this track is a complete and utter BASTARD to mix! Tread carefully!
Sad news this week when we learned of the passing of Loleatta Holloway.
A proper, proper legend and arguably one of the greatest divas in the disco era, Loleatta will certainly be remembered as one of the most sampled voices in dance music. From working with the Salsoul Orchestra to being sampled by Black Box, you’re sure to recognise one of the greatest female singers of the last 40 years in some form.
Here’s a couple of selections in tribute:
The Optimo guy’s have signed up London-based trio Factory Floor, for a release on their label in early April. With the legendary Stephen Morris of JoyDivsion/New Order on production duties, the guys have been causing quite a stir, with their debut release gaining 9 out of 10 in NME, describing it as “the soundtrack of underworld disco”.
Their live performances have gained them support slots for the like of Fuck Buttons, Cold Cave, Liars and Andrew Weatherall, and if you are in London tonight they will be headlining the Dollops warehouse party with support from JD Twitch (Optimo). Full details right here
Optimo have also provided a storming remix of their new release, which has gained the support from the like of James Holden and The Quietus. And you can download it right here
So make sure to check out the 12″ release in all good record shops on 6th April.
In case you missed it, we recently provided the guest mix on the excellent Holbeck & Gardiner’s SloMo Radio Show on SS Funk and Disco Radio.
Past guests have included Dave Allison (Kinjo), Laura Ingalls (the Horses), the unstoppable Matthew Kyle (NoRequests), Iann Mann (MannMadeMusic) and Mushrooms Italia – some of the very best in slo-mo house and disco output one and all!
The show is broadcast on a fortnightly basis – tune in right here.

Last call for anyone in the Belfast area – the simply magnificent Eddie C drops into isodisco tonight to help blow out our birthday candles in ultra slow, deep and groovy fashion!
Still a few tickets available on the door & there’ll not be a better night in the city!
See you on the dancefloor!
Aah Yes, ain’t that Fresh…………
The brilliant Jeremy Duffy has stepped behind his Duff Disco moniker to provide the next in the Duff Disco edit series 005 – Catch Me Out/You Wish.
These were uploaded on his Soundcloud a few months back, and have been causing quite a stir, with many people (including ourselves) itching for a release date. Well, that finally happens this Monday 7th March with a limited edition vinyl only release which will be available through Juno, and Piccadilly.
Two heavy, slo-mo bombs, perfect for the upcoming summer months, we’re looking foward to picking this up next week and playing out.
You Wish takes a cheeky sample from the old school hip hop joint by Skee-Lo, and just keeps the groove going.
The filp side has the cracking Catch Me Out, which is sure to get the dancefloor rocking
Get it while you can! Also keep an eye out on Duff’s own Join The Dots blog, where in the coming weeks he will be giving away past Duff Disco releases on mp3 for FREE! What a guy!
