The question of how best to launch a label is tricky one, especially when said imprint already has some kind of associated reputation. In the case of Disco Bloodbath, that reputation was formed with a cultish series of east London parties and further established by remix work for some fairly heavy-hitting pop acts, so here, co-founder Damon Martin answers the aforementioned question by busting out a Roland, a Juno and doing his very best Murk impression.
And a damn fine impression it is too. His echoing bassline and soft, swirly pads sound pretty much indistinguishable from some of the better examples of the genre from 20 years back. Waze & Odyssey's remix doesn't sound much more current, although that's clearly not the aim here. Relentless looping of the vocal adds a bit more energy and there's a deliciously severe synth blast that joins the party mid-break, but it's more of a club edit than a remix proper.
Finally, for those of you who think that a house retrospective of this nature isn't complete without a light splattering of acid, you're in luck. Legendary Children's remix has it in droves, all tightly packed in between snappy hats and thunderously throbbing low-end.
