From their audio-visual Rodeo Cosmico mix to live DJ sets supporting Young Gun Silver Fox and top country rock edits of classics by CSN and others, Flying Mojito Bros have been  keeping the '70s fire better than anyone else in London over the last few months. Now they've turned their attention to Westcoast jazz-rock guitar legend Larry Carlton and his 1978 track I Apologize, beefing up the bottom end and adding synths to give the smoothness a cosmic touch.

Be With Records' mission to bring Los Angeles blue-eyed yacht soul legend Ned Doheny to European audiences continues. In 2015 the label brought Doheny over for a highly successful tour (his acoustic set at the Greenwich Yacht Club was a highlight of the year for us) and they reissued the classic Doheny LPs (such as Hard Candy from 1976 featuring 'Get It Up For Love', a track featured on a thousand mixtapes over the last decade).

In June we featured Mojo Filter's Swingin', Whoopin' Re-Love of Lana Del Rey's 'Video Games' and now as promised we have an exclusive mix to celebrate his new album Modern Re-Loves Volume 3, a compilation of his inventive and idiosyncratic remixes of modern rock and pop artists. We caught up with Ben Zaven-Crane, the man behind Mojo Filter and our Vintage Edits CD series...

With nearly 25,000 plays on Soundcloud over the last few days, dj Shmeejay's latest exclusive mix for us shows once again that he is a leading light in AOR Disco world. This selection of the best classic rock edits and reworks also features two other much-loved contributors to the site: RedKen, whose superb Ned Doheny remix was recently released on Be With Records, and Mojo Filter, the man behind our Vintage Edits CD series.

Many thanks to Paul Hillery for his latest exclusive mix for us. "I'm not sure which genre it fits in as a whole," he says.

On July 1st DJ Supermarkt will be launching the third volume of the now legendary Too Slow To Disco compilation series featuring "late 70s Westcoast Yachtpop, you can almost dance to..." (see the event page on Facebook for further details). Two days earlier the compilation will be released on CD and Limited Edition Blue 180g Double Gatefold Vinyl - and once again it has been receiving glowing reviews from publications ranging from The Independent to Mixmag.

Can it really be a year since Volume 5 of Les Fisher's superb 1970s rarities series? Well, it's great to welcome him back. And behold the obscurity of the tracks below. As ever the songs might be hard to find but the quality is high. There are no dollar bin mediocrities here. So thanks again to Les for reviving the music that time unjustly forgot.

Ben Zaven-Crane of Mojo Filter has been a Hall of Fame contributor to AOR Disco since 2010 (check out his edits and mixes for us here, which include the cult classic CD releases of the Vintage Edits series) but he's been a bit low-key over the last few months. So we're very pleased to welcome him back with this preview from Re-Loves Volume 3, the latest compilation of his inventive and idiosyncratic remixes of modern-day artists which is released in July.

Rose Field returns with another top selection of modern day tracks which are infused with the spirit of '70s and '80s yacht rock and soul.

Many thanks to Detroit's Bill Spencer for this high-class mix of Westcoast rarities from the 1970s. "It's a similar vibe as the one from two years back (I can't believe its been that long)," says Bill. "And I tried to use songs that have never been featured in a mix on AOR Disco before."
