Strut Records has enjoyed success in the nouveau disco scene over the last few years with their Horse Meat Disco series.  For those who don’t know it, this compilation series is masterminded by a English D.J. collective who use the titular moniker for their public performances.  Their distinctive, skillfully chosen and mixed blend of disco sounds from the 1970’s and 1980’s has been successful with fans and critics alike and the new album will be a double-disc affair combining choice obscurities with new remixes.  Read on for all the mix-mastering details, including track listing and d.j. tour info…

Acclaimed London DJ collective HORSE MEAT DISCO return in June with the third instalment in their essential compilation series bringing together rare disco, ‘80s boogie, electro, fresh edits and all-new dancefloor dsicoveries. Mixed by resident DJs James Hillard, Jim Stanton, Severino and Filthy Luka, this new edition packs in 28 incendiary tracks for guaranteed dancefloor heaven.

CD 1 brings the peak time selection and features a spread of Salsoul classics re-worked by some of the current masters of the re-edit including Todd Terje and Stupid Human, alongside Ron Hardy’s famed and previously bootleg-only cut-up of First Choice’s ‘Let No Man Put Asunder’. UK producer Andy Williams aka Yam Who? cuts a brand new version of Sha-Lor’s house classic ‘I’m In Love’ and also features as bandleader of Fuzz Against Junk on the Harvey remix of their Talking Heads cover ‘Born Under Punches’ from the ‘90s heyday of Nuphonic Records. New productions feature from the stables of Smalltown Supersound, Rush Hour and more.

CD 2 takes us to the early hours with a hazy mid-tempo sleaze mix, echoing the spirit of infamous New York havens like The Saint. Tracks include the Factory Records classic ‘Reach For Me’ by the late Marcel King and the rare ‘Lovemaker’ by Wham (no relation to the George Michael group), re-issued here for the first time. ‘80s grooves from Miquel Brown from the peak days of ‘80s hi-energy and T.S. Monk’s boogie classic ‘Candidate For Love’ rub shoulders with hand-picked mid-tempo beauties from Sylvester and original Weather Girls incarnation, Two Tons Of Fun.

Now into their seventh year, Horse Meat Disco have continued to lead the way with packed residencies at their HQ at The Eagle in London’s Vauxhall, Lux in Lisbon and Tape in Berlin. Inspired by the music and inclusive ethos of New York’s club scene during the ‘70s and ‘80s, the collective have garnered a unique reputation for amazing parties and unmatchable sets, the quartet of DJs each mixing their own quality blend of disco juice. During 2011, as well as playing their annual UK festival dates at Glastonbury and Lovebox, they will be spreading the love to some of the world’s leading festivals including Vivid in Sydney, Electric Elephant, Bestival and San Francisco’s Pride.

Horse Meat Disco III is mixed by the Horse Meat Disco residents with mix bundle and all unmixed tracks available to download. Also available as unmixed 2LP set. The package features a selection of photos taken at Horse Meat’s events worldwide and exclusive sleeve notes by New York DJ and journalist Daniel Wang.
