Oh happy day! Harmless Records have announced the release of another four albums in their Disco Discharge series.

Mr Pinks has returned with another eight discs of saucy, pounding, classy and cosmic cuts from his well stocked record box.

This time out the four titles have the semi-self-explanatory titles of America Hot, Disco Exotica, Europa and Midnight Shift.

Speaking about the series he said: "Great care was taken in choosing the tracks and I am confident that the new albums match anything on the previous ones. Disco Discharge has never been just about showcasing rarities. Each album contains a mixture of hits, underground club tracks and choice rarities. I aim to make each disc as entertaining as possible and by peppering them with a mix of the above, it keeps the listeners interested. It's all about having fun. It's very personal to me and the albums are what I would like to hear if I was out in a club."

But the good news doesn't end there, the team are launching a sister label called Disco Recharge soon to reissue whole disco albums and are starting with a double set by Change, The Glow Of Love and Miracles, and Voyage's self titled classic.
