Review: Nothing says happy new year better than a 33-track jungle package. Ripping into the year in the same spirit they shredded 2016 with, DITJ have delivered something serious special here as some of modern jungle's finest creative minds: the never-failing DJ Hybrid slams the hammer down with the enormous VIP of "What Else", RMS continues his rich vein of form with some dagger-like samplecraft on the dancehall scorching "Burning Up", Section conjures up the spirit of Raindance past with some crafty drum-dicing "Black Magic" while Evade will turn you inside out on his trippy-assed amen omen "Reverse"... And that's just four of over thirty moments. Trust... We can't stress how massive this is.

Review: One can throw the word 'legend' around all day long... But few match up to the might of DJ Monk. A mid 90s instigator who returned to critical acclaim several years ago and has since re-inked jungle's tattoo to the past with authentic melting pot roughhouse clarity. Here we find his label KLP reflecting and forecasting in equal measure with a great range of names: Ray Keith duffs up the drums on his modern take of "Deal Wid It", Serial Killaz skank up the dance with a spacious dancehall shake down "I Spy", Lion-UK hits a nine on the richter scale with the slinky sub funk take on "Jungle Riddim" while Serum seals the deal with his precision balanced jungle soul on "Good Body Girl". Legendary.

He Is The Voice I Hear - (10:29) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.84
Review: There's naturally been plenty of hype surrounding The Black Madonna's "He Is The Voice I Hear", which originally dropped on a single-sided 12" at the tail end of 2016. It's undoubtedly the fast-rising Chicagoan's best record to date, and feels like an unashamed tribute to Patrick Cowley's fine productions for disco icon Sylvester. While there are mournful notes - check the extended, beat-less piano intro -it doesn't take long to turn into a deliciously muscular, Italo-disco style chugger laden with razor-sharp strings, bubbling acid lines, and the kind of fluid piano solos that were once a hall mark of Frankie Knuckles' remixes. In other words, it's a fine contemporary disco record from one of dance music's most notable DJs of recent times.

Review: Time flies when you're a junglist... Reflecting the bossman DJ Hype's all-style signature as a selector, Playaz output covered the spectrum in style last year. You want sun-dappled soulful fire? Look for Potential Badboy. You want dirt munching gully? Look for Annix. You want leftfield stripped back surreal dark funk? Look for Bass Brothers or Jam Thieves. You want to get knocked the heck out? Look up Taxman, Prestige and Tyke. So many corners covered they smashed walls down to create new ones, Playaz killed it in 2016... Here are 25 reasons why.

Review: Formation, officially the longest running drum & bass label of all time, battens down the 2017 hatches with an incredible package of future fire. Gloves are off from the starts as the likes of Bladerunner charges up "Pulsar" with giddy VIP energy and NC-17 tickles our classic jungle fancy with "Bronx Roller" within the first few tracks while, deeper into the selection, Sweet & Sikka go all-out tech funk naughty with "Rebuke" and Benny V, Dfrnt Lvls & Entice get you thrusting lighters you didn't even know you owned. It's great to see label founder and all-round legend SS appearing so heavily across the album with his tracks, too... "Love So True" is a masterclass in classic early 2000s style dreamy soul, "New Jazz" takes us back to an EZ Rollers era and his Soul Saverz material continue to carve its own exciting unique conscious path. No other label has the heritage of Formation.

Review: Ripping the heart out of 2017's kneecaps, Jedi continues his relentless proliferation of absolute gully. "Hash Cakes" wakes, bakes and shakes with a squidgy bass, sharp drums and an expertly dug sample. "There's A Better Way" follows with a really cool twist on a classic Kathy Brown vocal while "2 Drops" is straight out of the book of Playaz circa 2007 - buzzy, hooky and just on the right side of silly. Saving the best for last, "Hoo Baby" closes with one of Jedi's best vibes to date as swooning vocal coos melt into a bassline so cheeky it will have you dancing the chicken dance from here until 2019.

Review: Majistrate and Voltage: two diamonds in the D&B rough, the middle ground shared by these two titans is the holy land most producers invest years of studio craft in discovering. The riffy funk of Voltage, the sheer weight and energy of Majistrate, the cheekiness of the pair of them - both "Big Time" and "Face The Pressure" hit like you'd want them too. The former on a riff-focused bass trip, the latter on more dense, layered peak time flattener.

Review: We've come accustomed to Kiu D delivering warm, groovy, floor-friendly music that blurs the boundaries between re-editing, remixing, and original production. He's at it again on this first outing for Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint. The EP's four original tracks utilize big chunks of killer old soul, funk, disco and jazz-funk jams, but combine these elements with chunky house beats and woozy deep house flourishes. This is arguably best exemplified on the tactile, sun-kissed swing of "I'm In Your Life" and surging, solo heavy "Jazz or Funk". The package is completed by two tasty reworks: a bass-heavy disco-house revision of "I'm In Your Life" by Voodoo Whiskey, and Twisted Soul Collective's righteous, party disco remix of "Jazz or Funk".

Review: Given that he founded the label two years ago this month, it's something of a surprise to find that Heart Breaker is Danny '80s Child' Worrall's first release on Masterworks Music. As usual, the five re-edits on offer mine the producer's vast collection of '80s electro, P-funk and synth-soul for inspiration. Opener "Dancing Real Close 2 U" is a subtly beefed-up rearrangement of a P-funk/'80s soul fusion, while "The Next Step" is a Tiger & Woods style electrofunk-goes-house loop jam. He changes the formula a little on the organic disco cheeriness of "Love Is U", before reaching for the hairspray on the Jam & Lewis-on-steroids vibe of "Closer 2 Your Luv".

Review: The honour of curating the 44th instalment of Katakana's Edits series has fallen on Disco Funk Spinner, a much respected re-edit guy whose work has appeared on the likes of Midnight Riot, Disco Fruit and Sound Exhibitions. Here though he only manages to provide two jams, but it's quality, not quantity, right? First up we get "Night Strangers" which takes loops from Candi Staton's Bee Gees cover (Nights On Broadway) and adds an accelerated disco house tempo and subtle but funky embellishments. On the digital flip is "On Fire", a clever rework of Peggy Lee's indestructible classic, Fever. Hot stuff!

Review: SHOTS FIRED! Gun Audio continue their Reload series with another epic slab of forthright freshness from some of the most respected names in the game: From master craftsman OGs like Heist, Murdock, Rowney & Propz and Jaydan to unavoidable hurter heroes Turno to exciting new talents like Jaxx, Vacuum and Meladee, it's a premiership rollcall each packing a heavyweight punch. Highlights across the 23-strong collection include Jaydan's reverse-stringing, cat-strangling freak out on "Murdering Monster", the hornet bass shakes and switches of Jaxx's "Combinations" and the frog chorus on Blackley's "TMI" but that really is the tip of the most explosive V/A album Gun Audio have ever detonated.

Review: Disko's latest digital-only release is a meeting of musical minds. It features two groovy, musically rich disco-house collaborations co-produced by sometime Large Music contributor Paul Rudder and fast-rising talent Tete de la Course. While "Cadillac Disco" - a tasty fusion of rolling, bass-propelled grooves, wild flute solos, punchy horns and cheeky vocal samples - is rather good, it's opener "Makin' The Magic" that hits home hardest. A smooth but bumpin' dancefloor shuffler with bold organs, jangling acoustic guitars and eyes-closed vocal samples, it sounds like the kind of track that will easily slip into both house or disco sets. Roberto Rodriguez provides the obligatory remix, gently tugging the track further towards disco-tinged deep house territory.

Review: And so the Modified Motion & Faction onslaught continues. Shotting out peaktime hype sirens at their most prolific rate to date, they step over to Sweet Tooth with four more high grade cuts. Both the fittingly titled "Nice Tune" and the rougher, looser hurter "Escape" tap into the mid-to-late 2000s jumpy sound where the dynamics were crafted to sweep you off your feet. "Wood Pecker" takes a deeper twist with its harmonic bass and creepy string sample while "Lifeline" seals the deal with a twist on the detuned Prodigy style rave synths. Think later era Bad Company with a dash of Sub Focus - it's that heavy.

Review: Sunner Soul is clearly determined to start 2017 in a positive mood. His first EP of the year urges us to have a Good Time, with the producer doing his bit to spread sunshine via a string of impressively warm and summery re-edits. He begins with a blissful ambient tool - perfect for mix intros and such - before expertly reworking a global disco shuffler ("Fuwafuwa Groove"). The swirling peak-time disco of "Good Time" is next, followed by an expertly executed cut-up of Evelyn 'Champagne' King boogie classic "Love Come Down" that offers a subtle nod towards Tiger and Woods. The sweaty disco-funk bump of "Ready To Back" and horn-heavy groover "Rescue Of Time" complete an excellent package.

Review: Hot to trot vibes machine FooR goes balls-deep on this epic 50+ track compendium. Bulging at the seams with slinky two-steps, stinking basslines and every essential element in between, it's an incredible collection of on-point bass music cuts spun around the UKG / bass house axis. Those with a soulful interest should instantly fall for cuts like Thorn's "In 2 Deep", anthem-addicts need to know about Foor's own heavenly synth/guttural bass jam "Lift Me Up", bass-devoted breakers will go giddy for "Don't Hold Back", gully munchers will chow down heartily on Tyrone's "Ravin Face" while DJs in need of more of a classical deep roll-out should be smitten by Tengu's "Evil Ting". And that's not even scratching the surface - this is a true trove of future talent and shadowy sonic skill. Golly gosh YosH.

Review: Given his impressive track record, hopes are naturally high for Bonobo's sixth album, Migration, which is his first full-length since 2013. Happily, it's a majestic affair, with the producer delivering another sumptuous set of tracks. It was partly inspired by an extended period musing on the nature of personal identity, and the role that nationality plays in that. This concept is translated via thoughtful lyrics, and songs that draw musical influence from the four corners of the globe. It's not a big stylistic leap, of course - his bread and butter remains yearning, emotion-rich downtempo music built around gently jazzy grooves and impeccable live instrumentation - but given that few artists do it better than Bonobo, we'll forgive him for that.

Review: We don't need to tell you how important this is. Wiley's eleventh, and potentially last, solo album Godfather is the zenith of a man who has dedicated his life to UK bass culture for almost 20 years. With beats as fiery as his forthright thoughts, it's the sound of a man going back to his roots, writhing deep in the raw, sucker-punch club banger mindset; the raw orchestral drama of "Back With A Banger" and "Pattern Up", the fast-lane bass and strings of "Can't Go Wrong" and the space-funk bass twister "Bait Face" are countered smoothly with more introspective, deeper cuts such as the soulful "On This" and the wavey sci-fi style "Laptop". These are just a handful of the highlights here. Once again the Godfather has made us an offer we can't refuse.

Review: Given the success of Red Rack'em's hard-to-beat "Wonky Bassline Disco Banger", we were initially skeptical of this remix package. Happily, all involved have done a good job in offering a fresh slant on one of the club hits of 2016. KiNK steals the show with a version that strips out much of the original's disco flavour, instead combining Rack'em's wonky electronics with trippy new noises and freakishly druggy elements. The result is a fine chunk of heavyweight weirdo-house. Classic chief Luke Solomon joins forces with the mighty Eats Everything and Lord Leopard on the virtual flipside, serving up a skewed version that veers from loose disco-house warmth to brain-melting electronic wonkiness, and back again.

Review: DJ Butcher's Chopshop greets 2017 with a stonking new EP of big hit reworks by DJ S. The lead track here is "Last Train To The Disco" which takes a 70s ELO masterpiece and just gently beefs it up for modern dancefloors. This approach continues on "The Drug I'm Thinking Of" where Roxy Music's sleazy ode to prowling nightclubs in search of lust has its original bass lines and breaks ever so carefully teased out to great effect. Lastly "More Love" is a cheeky Balearic jam, originally by Tony Pacino that gives Julio Iglesias a run for his money.

Review: Raising tension and attention with every release right now, Natty Dub return with yet another BS-free collection from some of the underground's most respected individuals. T>I loosens the bass strings for his slinked out dark-jazz stepper "Regulate", Hoogs puts all the aces in their places with a precision space-reggae gully jam "R Ting", Coda goes all bubble-bass a la mid 90s V on "Back It Up" and Jaxx & Dub General roll out with pure grumble groove and classic jump up spoken samples. Finally Flat T brings business to a close with a deal-breaking late 90s Bristol-flavoured cut where the spooked-out bass has a life of its own. Immense.

Review: Aussie adventurer Tornado Wallace seems to be getting better with age. Over recent years, he's delivered a string of brilliantly evocative, sun-kissed releases for the likes of ESP Institute, Beats In Space and Second Circle. Lonely Planet is his debut album, and it could well be his strongest release to date. The seven tracks are dreamy, trippy and atmospheric - we'd expect nothing less - and draw on a far wider palette of Balearic influences than we've heard on previous experiences. Coupled with a new-found desire to include more live instrumentation (particularly glistening, Peter Green style guitar passages, drums and exotic flutes), the result is an album that's as evocative, dreamy and humid as anything he's produced to date. In other words, it's a great album and comes highly recommended.

Review: There's not much info about this latest offering from the Giant Cuts camp, other than that the four tracks are "classic disco modifications". In practice, that means expert cut and paste re-arrangements of the kind of vintage disco material that was once all the rage in New York City. Check, for example, the early Leroy Burgess vocals, rising orchestration and extra-percussive groove of "Nut Butter", the "Open Sesame"-era disco voodoo of "Aladdin's Groove" - here made even more alluring by the addition of some tasty dub delay - and the break-driven disco-funk thrills of "Wooden Doll", which sounds like a rework of a forgotten T-Connection cut. Also superb is the celebratory bounce of "Dance Party", which smartly focuses on a rubbery groove, layered percussion hits and memorable vocal passages.

Review: G.A.M.M's man in Paris, Young Pulse, is a talented chap. His periodic re-edit releases on the long-serving Swedish label have been amongst the most impressive rework-heavy EPs of recent years. Volume 4 is a little less expansive than usual, boasting just two cuts; happily, though, both are superb. "Everybody, Free Your Body" is a soaring, spiraling rearrangement and extension of The Dells largely overlooked 1977 album cut "Get On Down", which sounds like the stuff memorable midnight moments are made of. On the virtual flipside you'll find the similarly soulful and funk-fuelled "Don't YouKnow, Baby", a superb straightening out and subtle beef-up of L.T.D's 1980 jam "Don'tcha Know".

Review: Singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Jordan Rakei is a talented chap. Not content with pulling up trees under his given name, he's decided to debut a new alias via a killer new EP for Rhythm Section International. All four tracks are deliciously hazy, effortlessly soulful and hugely groovy, as Rakei deftly showcases his many talents. He begins with the Prince-tinged purple funk of "Change", before fusing clipped funk guitars, broken house beats and confident vocals on the superb "Like You Wanna". "Tolle" sees him slip further towards toasty, low-slung deep house territory, before he breaks up the beats and fires up the Rhodes on deliciously jazzy closer "Ligo".

Taking samples from the film and weaving them into gully floor heaters, 6Blocc shows us his darkest skills with a palette of sounds. "Church Booty" refuses to quit with its relentless back/forth sub ripples, "Crenshaw & Century" is a Tom & Jerry level jungle joint full of twisted amen edits and Ice Cube freshness, "In The Hood" slinks and tickles with "Pulp Fiction" style minimalism while "Mark" flips the mean and moody halftime bird with cosmic grit. These are just a handful of highlights.

Review: 2017 has started with a bang for fans of French Kiss Records label boss KS French. First was a new instalment in the "Supa Funky Edits" series and now we have a rare full solo EP from man himself. Here on the Bad Soul EP French goes for a vintage soul influenced sound, particularly the sassy and brassy James Brown-sampling opener, "Godfather Edit". Elsewhere there's a nod to his fellow countrymen Daft Punk on the Edwin Birdsong-sampling "Cola Freak Baby", the stomping, bass-fuelled shakedown of "Party Noize" and woozy sax-led boogie on the lo-fi "Give It Up".

Review: Contrary to popular belief, Wolfie isn't just fine...He's in the rudest health possible. Hells, he's fighting so fit he can accidentally crush your bones when he shakes your hand. Serious production muscles: "Evil Within" twists and shakes with a crafty off-beat funk while "Possessed" takes us deep into a midnight crypt where ghosts of jump up past, present and future make us question our every atom. "What You Need" brings the soul back with a classic vocal snippet that shatters into a million pieces when the rasping bass twists into the mix while "Respect" crushes on climax with industrial strength bass. Wild.

Review: A little funk sensibility can be the best of remedies to sooth your winter chills, and this new 20-track compilation from JalapeNo is the perfect remedy. The imprint has it down when it comes to releasing contemporary soul-dance, and peeps like the Ephemerals, Basement Freaks, and Izo Fitzroy are all revelations in of themselves. Just to give you a little flavour of this steaming hotpot of sounds and grooves, there's a little tribal disco slaying on Soopasoul's "Hustlin'", vintage Motown soul with The Allergies and "Since Youave Been Gone", and contemporary r&b vibes through the vocal talent of Alexia Coley and her "Jekyll & Hyde" tune. There's something in here for all walks of life, so be sure to flick through this baby to find your kink.

Review: After an extended summer break, Apersonal Music returns to action via a first EP in five years from Cisco Cisco. It opens with the comforting shuffle of "Jazzy Days", where intricate electric piano lines, woozy chords and soulful vocal samples ride a near horizontal, slow-house groove. It's accompanied by a trademark Ron Basejam remix, which retains the rich, jazzy deep house feel of the original, whilst adding a little more disco swagger. Further disco and boogie influences can be heard on "Jazzy Nights", which is a flickering, synth-heavy deep house treat. Andre Vegas' smooth, sweet and sultry interpretation of that track rounds off a fine E.P.

Review: Since making his debut some years back, Fabiolous Barker's reworks have appeared on many of the nu-disco scene's leading edit imprints, including Midnight Riot, Masterworks Music and Alpaca Edits. This expansive compilation draws together some of the London-based Argentine's finest scalpel moments to date, offering mostly freshly re-mastered versions for extra-loud dancefloor pleasure. There's naturally plenty to enjoy, from the elastic, pitched-down disco-funk of "Sexy Thing" and the soaring disco camp of "Love", to the all-instrumental sleaziness of Sylvester rework "Liquid Gold", and the quirky P-funk throb of "Bottoms Up". He's also included a number of his hip-hop sampling disco mash-ups, all of which are also tried-and-tested dancefloor gold.

Review: By now, we should all know what to expect from Serbian scalpel maestro Tonbe. His frequent EPs are aimed fairly and squarely at the dancefloor, delivering a mixture of re-edits, reworks and sample-heavy productions that don't try too hard to impress. This latest EP is full of such cheery, tried-and-tested cuts, from the rolling jazz breaks, comfy Rhodes stabs and fluttering soul vocals of "Gambling Face", and punchy disco-house flavours of "Sweet Love", to the rich, organ-flecked soulfulness of "Those Days", and riotous, disco-goes-hip-house opener "Don't Mess With Us". In other words, it's another rock-solid collection of tasty peak-time bangers from one of the edit scene's most reliable producers.

Review: Having taken us through his innermost fears on "Nightmare World", Jaydan fires up the boosters and flies us all the way to Venus for part of Low Down Deep's planetary series. We take off with the criminally simple three note bassline that cascades mischievously over a rough rolling break. We break through the earth's orbit and blaze through the stars with the 2005-flavoured distorted middy bass hook before being hurtled woozily in Venus's orbit with raw sandpaper bassline on "Shut It Down". The euphoric opener and major key, tripped-out reverse bass riff of "Frightening" mark the moment we land on the planet and party. Next stop...Uranus.
