Due out this July on Strut, the London collective's latest mix features tracks from Todd Terje, Ron Hardy, Dimitri From Paris and more.
Made up of James Hillard, Jim Stanton, Filthy Luka and Severino, Horse Meat Disco began as a London gay night ("the queer party for everyone") and has since developed into a DJ team and international event series, with residencies at Tape in Berlin and Lux in Lisbon, not to mention their UK home base, The Eagle in Vauxhall. They've begun popping up at big festivals as well; this summer they'll be at Glastonbury, Lovebox and Bestival to name just a few. But no matter where they go, you can always count on them to deliver sweaty, no-nonsense disco, preferably "from between '76 and '84."
On Horse Meat Disco III, the foursome break out of that timeline a bit, connecting the dots between the old (Sylvester, Ron Hardy) and the new (Todd Terje, Tom Trago). According to a press release, the first disc shows them in peak time mode, while the second is more of an afterhours affair. The physical release comes packaged with photos from their events around the world and liner notes by Daniel Wang. An unmixed version will be available digitally and on double-vinyl.
