Press play #31: Cosmic Boogie

31 already ey? Not bad. Liverpool based, Stu Robinson aka Cosmic Boogie drops in with a brilliant Disco mix for the Disco Deviance label and a.n.o.e.'s Press Play series ( "3 underground 'brand not brand's come together in Disco frenzy" the headlines might read). But wait did I say '31', that's about 10 Press Play's a year. Maybe not quiet as many as I'd thought, but then quality doesn't hurry itself, does it?

Stu runs the very classy Cosmic Boogie website/blog, he also dj's under the name, produces under the name, has his own fantastic label also called Cosmic Boogie and just recently put out a set of lovely edits on label of distinction, Disco Deviance.With tracks from Ashley Beedle, Ian Dewhirst, Greg Wilson and himself, Robinson has in a very short time (a year) created a label which is high on the scene's watch list. It's no small feat in these strange times, but like anyone who cares enough, he's working every angle and he does it with his eye always on quality. It's no surprise then that Disco Deviance stepped up and put out 'Feels Good' & "Heads' for their 11th release; 'Heads' is that really excellent rework of 'Slippery People' which had an internet following way before it's much needed vinyl release and 'Feels Good' is that big tent mash up of Electra's 'Feel Good' and Candi Staton's 'You Got The Love', that you been hearing all over for the last six months. The usual good suspects have been all over this release, but just in case you haven't heard em yet, check here

Once again I'm well chuffed to be able to bring you this very fine mix and have it added to the ongoing story of Press Play. Stu tells me that he's got a solid bunch of releases lined up for the year ahead, so keep an eye out for those. In the meantime grab this top mix below or on the sidebar...
