Review: Editorial is one of the leading re-edit labels currently doing the business, so it's only fitting that they should enlist some leading re-editors for Love Dubs. Australia's Dr Packer leads the charge with a sublime spaced out version of Teena Maries' slap bass classic Behind The Groove. Further highlights include the slo-mo, hands in the air vibes of "Bionic Love" by Robjamweb and the orchestrated '70s glamour beat of "Smile" by Black Rebel.

from $1.37
Review: "Mind Biscuit": Something tasty for your brain to chew on while your feet mulch up the dancefloor. Manchester crew Monkey Boots lay down two jack-slapping originals that dig deep into the true deep house psyche. "Impossible Need" comes with smoky vocal and smouldering bass vibes on the groove while "Yearning For You" slaps with a lighter sensation, all wafty minor key organs and soul-stirring vocals. Remix-wise Reed & Radley subvert "Yearning For You" with a little more space and reverbed magic while The Phantom Flan Flinger gets all reflective and shimmering on the Balearic bomb "Lullaby For Spiderman". Beautiful.

Review: 6Blocc doesn't channel dancehall; he breathes new life into it. This EP is a joyful twist and skank through vintage vocal riffs and rose-tinted ragga sounds with the deceitfully dark edge of his perfectly tuned bass programming. Simultaneously as gritty as it is joyous, each track give listeners (and DJs alike) the choice of vocal and dub mixes - although we'd seriously recommend the former. It's rare that the roots of d&b are celebrated at the forefront of deep d&b and this release makes the most of the past to create a fresh sounding EP ready to take over dancefloors everywhere. Crank it.

Review: A lot of re-edit producers seem to be reappearing following a fairly long hibernation period. It can't be a coincidence that the sun's out too - as re-edits are good times music. The Reflex are finally back and there'll be some mighty good times soundtracked by "Bongle Joogie", an almost seven-minute muscled up version of Kool And the Gang's monster party jam. Meanwhile, Earth, Wind & Fire's timeless hit "September" gets tweaked into a floaty cloud of party joy, with some pretty impressive acapella breaks too.

Review: The last missive from DJ Vas HQ was way back in November of last year. Thankfully the summer's sunny allure seems to have got his creative juices flowing and now we have four new offerings for our aural pleasure. Roy Ayers' "Our Love Will Bring Us Back Together" is teased out into sinewy, high-end boogie and BB&Q's "Imagination" home is improved, getting rebuilt into lasered robot funk. Crown Heights Affair also get two hip swaying brassy tracks featured here, rounding off the euphoric party vibes in style.

Review: Having struggled to find his niche during the early part of his career, things started looking up for Randomer when he popped up on Numbers back in 2011 with the bombastic blends of acid house and techno that made up his impressive Real Talk EP. Since then, he's impressively flitted between techno and bass music, and here delivers an all-out techno assault for Clone's occasional Basement Series. There's a real no-nonsese feel to the relentless kick-drums and cut-up vocal samples of "Stupid Things I Do", which comes in "New School" and "Old School" mix formats (the latter including some looser techno breakbeats, and thus being our pick). The EP also includes two formidable percussion workouts, which deliver driving drums and booming basslines.

Review: Kompakt's Total compilation series - an annual round up of gems from the imprint's tightly packed release schedule - must be one of the longest-running in dance music. Amazingly, this latest installment is the 14th volume in the series. For those who enjoy Kompakt's generally positive approach to electronic music - think tactile techno, ambient pop and skewed, synth-laden house from the likes of Michael Mayer, Thomas Fehlmann, Partial Arts and Gui Boratto - there's much to admire, including a slew of previously unreleased cuts. These include Superpitcher's "Delta", a sublime chunk of hypnotic e-tronica that's almost too melodic for its own good. Arguably even better is Weval's live recording of "Something", which is near perfect in its wide-eyed pop simplicity.

Review: Bringing new levels of heat to the nu-funk fire, Rise Above returns with three more surefire party ruckuses. WBBL kicks off with a pitch-perfect update of Bomb The Bass's "Bug Powder Dust" on "Buggin", Sammy Senior looks further back and taps into the deepest pool of classic jams with a savage bass-scorched "Sweet Funk", and finally X Ray Ted closes the show with a cool homage to Al Jarreau, complete with a cameo from Mr Biggie Smalls himself. New blood? Bloody great, more like.

Review: If you like your funk and breakbeats a little dirtier, than Funk Fusion have the grease to grind those gears. Terry Wagun drops a wobbly, saw-wave bassline over a choral of Lily Allen vocals in the opening track, while Mr Bristow slugs out some dirty low-end similar to Mr Oizo's "Analog Worms Attack" in his addition. For a crunchy, slowed down, stoners version of Pharrell's "Happy" there's 2RUD's "Happy Ska" - and don't forget Dave Gerrad's mashup of Queen and Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks" in his Funkadelic "Kurtis Breaks". Some bass-heavy 808 beats like Felix Da Housecat's "Kickdrum" rumble under a pair of titan hip hop vocals in "Turn Down For Hip Hop" thanks to Lil Jon and Fatman Scoop samples which spit over the top of Major Lazer synths. Get fused.

from $1.49
Review: Surgery Edits Vol 3 sees Aussie editor Dr Packer apply the knife to a selection of stone cold disco and funk classics. Extending and exciting at every opportunity, there's an emphatic headnod to the '80s throughout as we ignite with crisp revisions of both Jocelyn Brown's "Somebody Else's Guy" and Change's "Change Of Heart". As the doctor digs deeper we're treated to savage synth boogie badness by way of the slap-bass and horn heavy "Luv Ya Lady", a dubby dedication to George Benson's "Give Me The Night" and some cool filtered flurries on Lace's "Can't Play Around". Weighing in at near-album size, edit collections don't come much more extensive than this.

Review: It would be fair to say that Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint is good at spotting talent on smaller labels and giving them a bit of a push. The latest to receive this treatment is Tonbe (AKA Serbian producer Milos Djordjevic). The Big Game Fishing EP is arguably his strongest EP to date, and sees him going deeper into disco production whilst retaining his usual house-friendly dancefloor sensibility. Opener "Original Tool" - all rousing horns, clipped guitars, smothering organs and chunky beats - is particularly potent. The deep house-boogie fusion "Money Maker" is tasty, too, while "Explore Your Fantasy" expertly layers parping horns and funk guitars over a slap bass-propelled groove. Closer "Disco Nights" - a breezy, summery nu-disco jam destined for heavy rotation in sunny climes - is also pretty nifty.

Review: Staffordshire's Rich Lane made some serious waves recently with slo-mo Balearic bomb "Shelves" getting serious plays from the likes of Emperor Machine and Tronik Youth. For his latest release (on a split EP) he's chosen to present a cool, linear re-edit of A Split Second's 1986 classic "Flesh" - originally a faster punk record, it famously gave birth to Belgian New Beat when DJs played it at 33rpm and slowed to -8. Also included is returning '90s hero Peza (Lee Perry) with a reworked version of No More Nightmares - now stripped back to a slow acidic chugger.

Review: The Gun Audio label have been killing it with each and every release since it opened for business at the beginning of 2013, but for those who haven't yet had a chance to experience their cutting edge take on D&B, this second label compilation is essential business. Frojm the sci-fi synths of Mackie Gee's "Transmission" through the punishing rhythms of Jaydan's "Acid High" and Benns' "Disconnected" to the more classic sounds of Bladerunner's "Hot Steppa", there really is something for every discerning D&B fan here to chew on until the next one arrives!

Review: Spanish nu-disco DJ Nelue has developed quite a reputation for himself both with his residency at his Moroder Sound Club and with his label, Groove Democracy. Now he's upped his game again by delivering a seriously impressive 24-track label compilation featuring his own work and a selection of offerings from a host of key names on the re-edit scene. Highlights include Nelue's gentle retweak of Terri Well's 1984 anthem "All My Love", the chuggy arpeggiation of "Canebiere Man" and The Metaphysical's Bloop Crack glorious extension of Wham!'s kitchen synth drama, "Everything She Wants".

from $1.49
Review: Roots For Bloom SHAG Edits series returns with volume 3. M.James brings us a track that will catch any music lovers ear. With the crisp percussion, delicate guitar riffs, a bassline that keeps evolving throughout and that vocal, this one ticks all the boxes. On the flip label boss Jamie Trench maintains the general feel for the record. This one focusing on a simpler yet just as effective bassline and obviously being heavily reliant on the sample being in the shag edits series. If you're looking for that record that stands out from the rest, this is the weapon you need.

Butterflies by Leon Vynehall on Clone Royal Oak Cue Track
This Is The Place - (5:58) 124 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Originally debuting on Well Rounded Records' Housing Project sub-label in 2012, Leon Vynehall has since become one of the UK's most in-demand of the new wave of young house producers. He's released subsequent records for George Fitzgerald's ManMakeMusic and Will Saul's Aus, and most recently an album on Martyn's 3024. Vynehall is now in cruise control and he lays back on Clone's Royal Oak with what will prove to be a favourite with DJs this summer. "Butterflies" is this record's piano-driven house jam, but really it's all about "This Is The Place", a loved up peach of a production with the strength to appease the underground and crossover into the mainstream.

Review: Already a tried and tested tear-up on vinyl, Chestplate finally code up Leon's "Deadlock" EP for the digital heads. Complete with a stark political message, "Deadlock" swaggers with an anchor-like kick swing, pad textures that breathe like an asthmatic robot and midrange bass snorts that scuff up and down the arrangement. "Persepolisia" takes us on a darker trip where a series of basses rev up alongside each other in pole position, all vying for your murkiest attention. Finally the Kryptic Minds cohort climaxes with "Lelyss". Operating around the 90BPM half tempo axis, there's a crisp, snake-like mentality to the synth bass that bounces like a tightly coiled spring amid a spellbinding brew of airy pads. Heady.

Review: Bear Fresh have been pushing their more deep house-influenced side of late, but now they're revisiting their more urban-orientated "City" series to redress the balance. This second volume keeps the vibes going with nine killer tracks, highlights of which include the wobble-heavy stepper "Crazy Hype" by Crown Duels & Resonate, the apocalyptic 4x4 meanness of "Crater Face" by Pelikan, the tremor-inducing low end of future-laser-house belter, "Olisha's Call" by Scullious & One Over and, the frankly nuts, military bombardment of "Full Tilt" by Kiri & Nab.

Review: JD Twitch's Autonomous Africa series is something of a rarity. Each annual EP, which features modern electronic music influenced by African rhythms, sounds and styles, is used to raise money for a different African charity. Proceeds from this third in the series are destined for Tanzania's Mtandika Mission, a charity run by Midland's parents. It seems fitting, then, that he kicks things off with "Safi", a heavyweight slice of future voodoo that expertly blends analogue electronics and bombastic African rhythms. General Ludd go deep, psychedelic and off-kilter with their brilliant "Burning Mack", while Auntie Flo delivers a stripped-back vocal cut with echoes of his recent material on Permanent Vacation. Finally, Twitch steps up to deliver "Maya", which sounds like LFO's "LFO" re-made by African musicians.

Chain Reaction - (5:36) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Review: Tying Skeptical down to one particular genre is like wrestling with a rattle snake... Stupid and dangerous. Ever since his earliest outings on Ingredients and Zimbalam, he's shown a vast breadth creative ability and complexity from smouldering D&B soul to far-out, abyss-deep electronica. Here Tempa give him the keys to the dungeon as we find him in his deepest, darkest dub mindset. "Echo Dub" is a tight weave of knitted percussion, humming subs and eerie manipulated vocal elements. "Chain Reaction", meanwhile, develops on this with a thicker, more ominous sub dynamic that palpitates with liquid rigidity. The only stupid and dangerous thing to do right now is not pick up this.

Review: The ever-rising star of 2010/11 and master of experimental beats brings us the follow up EP to his superlative Noir EP which landed on Critical around this time last year. In the title track "Aria", Rockwell blends glitchy, cinematic rhythms with sonorous, blissed out vocals and cooling instrumentals. Next, "Live For The Moment" adds a dash of funk, whilst talented duo Ulterior Motive's remix of the aforementioned "Noir" is nothing short of superlative, as they toughen it up with a super dark b-line smashing breaks and that iconic Virus-meets-Subtitles tenacity. A collab with Hemlock owner Untold backs this up in "Rehekou Sunrise", adding a shimmy of samples and soulful bliss as we reach the end of the EP.

Review: The London crew who've given us the likes of Rudimental, Clean Bandit, Gorgon City and many other acts, Black Butter have been spreading love for four years now. Judging by this sumptuous set, they're not stopping any time soon. Arguably the darkest collection of the series to date, it ranges from sinewy, waspy bass jackers (DVWLX's - "When I'm Alone") to late night tech funk Berlin-style lazer-fests (BNRY's "Something North") via slinky somnambulant hazy techno (Troy Gunner's "Chain Reaction") and twisted, paranoid UKG hybrid (Jaded's "Gully Creeper"). Each one primed for total dancefloor destruction, Black Butter have delivered a premium package right here.

Review: It's the onset of a brave new era for Ostgut Ton as Panorama Bar 06 signals the label's decision to halt the manufacturing of CDs for their much loved series of mixes. Due for free download via the Ostgut site on August 11, the Berlin operation have not forgone the vinyl format with all the exclusives gathered by mix curator Ryan Elliott pressed up across a pair of 12" samplers. And boy did Elliott call in the favours with this first sampler featuring new and unreleased music from Neworldaquarium, Roman Flugel, Terrence Dixon, Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity. It is an overall exquisite selection, running from the ambience of NWAQ's contribution to Flugel's big room stomper and the sweeter, more playful sounds of Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity.

Review: Barnsley's finest bass producer Brent Kilner has been talking recently about switching to a brand new sound, so the My Mind EP might just be your last chance to catch him killing it before he moves on. If they are his last bass tracks, he's bowing out it style, delivering the raucous and breaky 4x4/jump up hybrid "My Mind" and the deep and moody wobbler "Boomstick". The title track also gets remixed into some doomy dubstep by Pelikan and turned into an otherworldly bass assault by Kiri.

Review: It's chart baiting garage time once again as DJ Q and Flava D link up on Local Action to turn out the kind of crossover hit that matches brains and brawn in equal measure. "PS" comes on bright and chirpy in its lead-in, all sugary synth splashes and catchy diva vocal hooks, while the drops rip into a deliciously freaky workout with alien melodic wobbles and plenty of weight bottom end. Balancing edgy underground qualities with unabashed accessibility has always been Q's game as much as Local Action's, and here the team more than deliver with a perfect slice of contemporary UKG.

Review: The good DJ Reverend P has already contributed two tight edits 12"s to the GAMM cause for the disco and house selectors out there and now he surfaces with more of the same for the similarly minded Basic Fingers label. With a summer of European coastline festivals beckoning, "Angels In Africa" is the swooning Chicago house and pop-influenced vocal jam and a perfect fit for sunshine filled dancefloors. And just as Michael Jackson's Xscape hits the shelves, why not get in the mood for some more bubblegum pop - turned house - with a cheeky Justin Timberlake infused "Just In Strawberry". Hee hee.

Review: It's been exactly a year since DJ Q and DJ Haus last collided in the studio, but boy has it been worth the wait. Three tracks and one remix from Q himself, it's an emphatic celebration of all things house, all things garage and all things party. The title track pays homage to Mr Edwards with sweet and sassy vocal splicing over a str8-up garage 4/4. Further on we get all early 90s with a mischievous compressed organ riff on "Eros. Dance" while "All Nite" looks towards mid 90s UKG when the speed garage blueprint was only just being wire-framed. Q closes the curtains with the darkest jam of the set; LFO-style basslines, a mirroring waspy riff and busted up amens buried deep in the mix.... It represents everything that's great about rave and garage's purest rudiments.

Review: In addition to his work as one half of Mista Men, London via Doncaster producer Ryan Aitchison has been making solo moves under his Mella Dee guise these past few years with appearances in all the right places (think Wolf Music, Shabby Doll and Sccucci Manucci). In fact Mella Dee's featured on two of the latter label's releases so it's little surprise to find the producer popping up on the affiliated Manucci's Mistress operation. The Feel It Out EP sits snugly between house, techno and bass music with the lead cut featuring a rather vicious sub bass line and some superb vocal edits, whilst "Raptor" opts for a moodier UKG meets snapping techno flex. Do check the smudged out bass refix from Will Berridge too.

Review: New York's venerable Mister Saturday Night imprint - an offshoot of Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin's party series of the same name - has spent the last couple of years building a reputation as a go-to label for those who like their house and techno eccentric and left-of-centre. Here, they present a showcase of their output to date that mixes previously vinyl-only singles - see Lumigraph's "Yacht Cruiser", the murky jazz-house flex of Archie Pelago's "Brown Oxford" and General Ludd's sweaty "Woo-Ha" - with a swathe of previously unreleased cuts. These are uniformly excellent, with the murky future voodoo of General Ludd's "C" and Archie Pelago's jazz-funk jam "Cinema Club" standing out.

Review: Manchester's deep delving duo Monkey Boots are back with a new version of "Whitworth Strut", this time reworked by disco royalty himself, Greg Wilson. Under Wilson's guidance the track becomes like a whooshy, subaquatic disco swim with tides of touchy feely loops washing all over the listener in blessed-out joy. Elsewhere we get a new track "Hold Back The Night", which is a lean and mean slice of linear electro funk (also successfully dubbed out by Andy Hart) that clocks in at a whopping eight minutes!

Review: Judging from the reception this UK producer has been getting from Hype and Pascal, it's only a matter of time before he blows up into the big time - so listen up. Packing the biggest of punches through the use of huge drops and bonesaw bass, the Time I Did EP manages to be a collection of highly accomplished, tightly produced dancefloor detonation devices, with each track coming from a different place in the D&B psyche. From heavy-handed and wild to technical and troubled at the flick of a switch, if you've not heard of this guy yet, prepare to hear your new favourite producer take flight into the wide world.

Brother's Dub - (5:22) 91 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Out of the Basement are Steve Leggat and James Ellis, both players in Manchester's music scene. Now they've hooked up with the El Diablo Social Club boys to finally deliver two much sought after edits. Both these tunes have been floating around in various forms for a while, but now they've been spruced up for a 'proper' release. "Take Me With You" layers an old soul vocal over new punk-funky live instrumentation for a slick head nodder. "Brother's Dub" meanwhile, is a slinky slo-mo edit of the Brothers Johnson cover of Shuggie Otis anthem "Strawberry Letter 23".

Sir Duke - (6:39) 106 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Gamm is an established re-edit and mash-up label that's managed to repeatedly dig up new-old gems since the early Noughties. Having previously tackled Marvin Gaye's back catalogue, The Reflex return with a new EP and this time they've gone Stevie Wonder crazy; providing re-workings of three of the great man's tunes. First up is "I Wish", a nine minute elaboration of the one people think is called 'Sneakin' Out The Back Door...' and one which does a lot to reverse the damage done by Will Smith on his "Wild Wild West" tune. "Higher Ground" is teased out and into a more DJ-friendly format and finally things on high with "Sir Duke" (the one everyone thinks is called 'You Can Feel It All Over'), which gets embellished with a subtle 4/4 beat and big, splashy and celebratory cymbals.

I Feel Good - (6:44) 74 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It's a mark of the quality of Mad Mats' A&R skills that GAMM has managed to notch up almost a decade of releases without really resorting to releasing the sort of stinky cheese that usually plagues bootleg and mash-up imprints. This EP from newcomers The Reflex continues that record, offering two excellent, funk-laden bangers that get just the right balance between anthemic pomp and heads-down stomp. First up is "ABC", a stretched-out re-take of The Jackson 5's most famous hit that boasts a completely different (but very good) musical backing. "I Feel Good" is even better, turning a loose funk classic into a tight dancefloor bumper thanks to snappy new beats.

Still, it's all about the quality, not the quantity and there's plenty of that still to be found. Bonnie & Klein deliver the warped hypnotic funk of "Kung Fu Love", LCA & Voodoo Cuts serve up a vintage-jazz-meets-daisy-age-rap joint, old skool ragga-roots is the order of the day on Timewrap's good time anthem, "Dubshine". Oligarch arrives with the raucous "Swingin'" to wrap things nicely, and nicely he does.

from $1.49
Review: Re-edit don Rayko still seems to be able to pull gems out of the bag at an alarming rate. Here he's done it again with a selection 'cheeky' edits, some more obvious than others. "Can't Get Enough" is made for those in love with the glistening dry ice electronics of mid-80s soul, Linn drum breaks and all. "Rock My World" is a re-work of Wacko Jacko's opinion-dividing 2001 comeback single, "Step Out Of My Dreams" is killer West End-style electro-disco and finally "Touch Me" sees Cathy Dennis' late '80s pop tune reduced to a ferociously funky guitar and cowbell workout.
