HORSE MEAT DISCO Are Back
And Feelin' Sleazzzy!
The UK’s Best Party Returns To
San Francisco, New York City
The Horse Meat Disco boys–DJs (pictured above) James Hillard, Severino, Jim Stanton and Luke Howard–are back with “Horse Meat Disco III,” their third mixed double-CD and double-LP (!) supported by a nearly two dozen city world tour, which includes three stops in the U.S.: Juanita More's Pride Party 2011 in San Francisco (June 26), The Pines Party on Fire Island (July 30) and Brooklyn’s Mister Sunday (July 31)
For Horse Meat Disco III, the boys once again dive into the crates to throw down a sweat-soaked set equally satisfying to the disco virgins and jaded trainspotters alike who throng their riotously fun parties. While Disc 1 features remixes, re-edits, remakes of classics, rarities and new tracks, such as Todd Terje’s edit of Claudja Barry’s “Sweet Dynamite,” a dub of Billie Ray Martin’s latest, “Sweet Suburban Disco” and Yam Who’s fab 2011 cover of Shah-Lor’s ’88 hit, “I’m In Love”, disc 2 features 14 Sleaze classics.
What’s Sleaze? Sleaze is the name given to the downtempo dance music played in the wee hours at legendary gay clubs in the early Eighties. DJs like Michael Fierman at The Saint and Bobby Viteritti at The Trocadero Transfer favored this music to fit the mood of their dancefloors, as their crowds were gently coming down from the high-energy high hit earlier in the evening. Grooving, melodic, soulful, and sometimes funky, these sexy songs were perfect for bumping, grinding and, well, gettin’ sleazy on blacked-out dancefloors at sunrise. Wildly popular and greatly anticipated, many timed their arrival to coincide with that night’s Sleaze set.
Horse Meat Disco III contains a clutch of exemplary Sleaze classics, among them Sylvester’s rare “Give It Up,” Loleatta’s drag-ready “Seconds,” T.S. Monk's disco-heavenly "Candidate For Love" and BLT’s funky “Tighten Up.” Also here are Sleaze hall-of-famers “Summer Breeze” by Baiser, “Close To Perfection” by Miquel Brown (better known for “So Many Men, So Little Time’) and the thoughtfully included and beloved “American Love” by Rose Laurens.
Horse Meat Disco III is the perfect summer mix for those seeking to dip below the often surface nature of contemporary dance music and groove a little bit deeper. Pumping hard enough for modern disco fans, but substantial enough for its critics, this brilliant set is backed up by edifying take-‘em-to-school liner notes by contemporary disco don, Danny Wang.
Beware, the Horse Meat Disco boys know what they’re doing, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself helplessly backin’ it up and workin’ it out on the beach, making sexy face in traffic or going bump in the night. It’s that good. Better yet, original full-length versions of select tracks will also be available as a beautifully packaged gatefold jacket double-LP set (gatefold jacket pictured above).

HORSE MEAT DISCO III
Strut Records Press Release
Acclaimed London DJ collective HORSE MEAT DISCO return in July with the third instalment in their essential compilation series bringing together rare disco, ‘80s boogie, electro, fresh edits and all-new dancefloor discoveries. Mixed by resident DJs (pictured left) James Hillard, Severino, Jim Stanton and Luke Howard, 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). ‘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, The Two Tons Of Fun.
Now into their eighth 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 and club dates worldwide. 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 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, Juanita More! Pride Party 2011 in San Francisco and as well as three NYC gigs, the first at The Pines Party on Fire Island, the second at Booklyn's Mister Sunday and finally at the Museum Of Modern Art's Queens outpost, PS1 for their Warm Up series on September 3.
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. •
