Funky Friday's Big Twelve Inches

Today brings a four pack of twelve inchers - a couple of tasty new school tracks and a couple of disco-licious old school hits to get your weekend off to a funky start.

Chromeo - Destination Overdrive (The DFA Remix)
From the just released DFA Remixes Chapter Two, this track sees the duo scruff up a tune by anothe duo, Canadian '80s fans Chromeo.

Klaxons - Gravity's Rainbow (Van She Remix)
From the forthcoming EP Xan Valleys, this Van She remix has the indie rock-ravers sounding like Cut Copy in Daft Punk mode.

Odyssey - Inside Out
This tune is just pure disco bliss. It's got a lovely beat, some seriously funkin' bass and that gorgeous melody, those squiggly synths and swelling strings and the British trio's glorious harmonies make this one a real winner for me.

Evelyn "Champagne" King - I'm In Love
Pure '80s electro-funk at it's best. Written and produced by Kashif, it bears all of his trademark sounds - synth bass, loads of synths, tight syncopation and lots of piano. Delicious.
