Say hello to Body Music, a collaborative project between The Rapture’s Vito Roccoforte, who also operates as one half of Vito & Druzzi and Boston’s producer and multi-instrumentalist Bosq. Bonding over a mutual love for raw, funky disco, house music and jazzy gospel piano licks, the two began passing unfinished ideas back and forth until a debut EP took shape. Entitled “Just One”, the well-crafted record features four tracks of all-original deep disco flavor. Here, we have the EPs title track, a disco-house stomper featuring vocals from Christian Holiday and the groove-filled “Drum Mix” of the b-side cut “Get It Baby”. The record comes complete with two reworks by Lay-Far and Patchworks.

The “Just One” EP is out now on Razor-N-Tape. Pick up your 12” here.

Next up on the Brooklyn’s vinyl-only edits label Razor-N-Tape is a special EP from Philly-based DJ/producer Michael The Lion, who has already produced tons of quality tracks and disco edits as DJ Apt One and with his group RCMP. After dropping his great tune “Funk Train”, featuring Amy Douglas on vocals, which was released late last year on Soul Clap Records, Michael The Lion flexes his edit skills once again, delivering four tracks in his signature funk-influenced style. Our favorite cut from that release is the Herb Alpert-sampling “909s And Herb”, co-produced with Fool’s Gold’s Sammy Bananas. Killer.
