When it comes to throwing disco parties, there probably is nobody out there doing it better than the London based DJ collective Horse Meat Disco . For over seven years now resident DJs James Hillard, Jim Stanton, Severino, and Filthy Luka have been putting on packed residencies at The Eagle in London’s Vauxhall, Lux in Lisbon and Tape in Berlin. These incredible parties are inspired by the music and culture that surrounded the New York club scene during the 70's and early 80's. The DJ collective have once again teamed up with Strut Records to put out the third Horse Meat Disco compilation, full of rare disco gems and edits. This amazing compilation includes superb originals like T.S. Monk's "Candidate For Love", "Seconds" by Salsoul Orchestra feat. Loleatta Holloway, Two Tons of Fun's "Just Us", Idris Muhammad's "For You Love", and many others. The compilation also features a number of great edits including Todd Terje's reworking of Claudja Barry's "Sweet Dynamite", Ron Hardy’s famed and previously bootleg-only cut-up of First Choice’s “Let No Man Put Asunder, as well as a funky edit by Leftside Wobble titled "Grapevine Boogie". I highly recommend picking up a copy of this compilation, as it is easily one of the best disco compilations of the year.
Here is a very interesting video of Jim Stanton and James Hillard of London's Horse Meat Disco collective speak about the history of the 'sleaze' disco subgenre, and the UK's unique perspective on American dance music.
