Underground dance label, Azuli Records, started up in 1991 and over the years became known for presenting top quality grooves with a modern take on disco music by adding a touch of house & garage into the mix.
The item at the top is a brief overview of the label that was published in Mixmag in 1995.
One of the records mentioned in the Mixmag article is the debut EP by Disco Elements - "Vol 1" - and following on from the Mixmag item is a review of the EP that was in Check Dis magazine in May 1992.
Under that is a chart from the same issue of Check Dis that was compiled by Blackmarket Record shop in London, and as you can see, Disco Elements is the one at the top.
Proving that the music on the EP also appealed to the jazz funk heads, the chart in green comes from a summer issue of Straight No Chaser magazine that year, and shows that the Disco Element's track "Running" was getting played at various clubs around Sydney, Australia, by Matt Hayward.
Finally, I have accompanied the items with a vinyl copy of the EP taken from my own shelves at home.
