Review: Fewer things are certain in life: death and Taxman delivering outrageously sick bangers. Here we find some of his biggest and most reggae-licked cuts dating back to 2006 amended and revised by either the big man himself of his peers: his own twist on the perennial "Too Bad" is worth the whole EP alone thanks to its level-shredding bassline that could melt entire villages. Elsewhere Upgrade adds a few spikes to the mix of "Nightshade", Bass Brothers add a fresh bounce to "Original Ninja" while Taxman shuts down the show with a twisted new bass texture on "Creepshow". You know say this is ruff.

Review: Easily one of the strongest new UK jump-up labels to have emerged in the last two years, Blackley's Cre8 continues to rep the spectrum with another blistering V/A collection. Highlights include the trippy dual-tone bass riff on Rowney & Propz's "Look Further", the pure gutter-tones of Blackley's "Question", the "Night Flight" style beats and tubular sub on Dorian's "Warface" and the early Die-style bass burps on Fineprint's "Drop Danger". Creativity never sounded so strong.

Played by: Lenzman
Review: Leiden's Lenzman reps his Dutch section with a brand new label dedicated to the more soulful fringes of D&B and its rich hip-hop roots. Starting as he means to go on, the debut release weighs in at a hefty 10 tracks ranging from hurricane soul such as the beautiful vocal-flecked "Don't Let Go" and "Down For Whatever", restrained jazzy rolls ("Grateful") and potential tune of the year business with his own remix of Children Of Zeus's "Still Standing". With a cheeky serving of skits along the way, too, it's clear Lenzman is in his element right here.

Review: 39 tracks, 10 FX sounds and a full mix. This isn't any old slice of afternoon cake you might share your elderly neighbour or distant relative, this is a seven-tiered wedding cake full of every type of unhealthy, fattening ingredient you can imagine. And we're not stopping until we've chowed the lot. If you've feasted on Deekline and Solo's Jungle Cakes before then you'll already know how tasty this is; a selection of their own releases and similarly spirited cuts from the scene, all laced with dubwise, dancehall and skank-soaked soul. Highlights hang from every corner but you'd be mad not to peak at Aries & Gold's soul-flecked massage of Mr Benn, or Dominator & Logan D's brokeback bust-up "Cowboy" or Serial Killaz' savage repurposing of Freestyler's iconic "Entertainer". High calorie badness.

Review: Staring down the barrel of a quarter of a century of releases, the legendary A-Sides tees up the second of his four-part "Quart" series. Kicking off with a beefier take on "One DJ" we're then submitted to light-headed jazz soul with Makoto on "Temptation", some incredible sample play on "Into Time", classic percussive deep Omni style on "Moon Raker" before closing with a lean string/sub workout that tips a nod to the mid 90s before everything got dark and steppy. Bring on "Sector 3".

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: Nu-disco hero 80s Child has come a long way since Masterworks Vol 1, the inaugural release on his Masterworks label a year and a half ago. Now we have the follow-up and it reveals how the label's sound has grown. There are 26 sizzling bangers on board this time, boasting a million delirious dance floor moments. Highlights of which include the fizzy thump-funk of 80s Child's "Computerized", Peza's doomy analogue electro mash up "Filmed Message" and the smooth, synthetic boogie of "Much Too Much" by Deelicious.

Review: More northern powerhouse bangers from the consistently heavyweight Dawn Raid outfit. This time we see them return to Randall's Mac 2 with three more ageless joints; "Make Me Move" is the classic jungle roller of the pack with a hefty sub presence and light dustings of rave elements, "The Bartender" applies a more soulful tactic with a great dusty vocal sample and a barbed contemporary twist on the early 2000s liquid sound while "Light The Beacons" brings us back to Randall's raison d'etre - proper, uncompromised jungle. Serious skills.

Don't Stop Til You Smoke Enough (feat Derrick Layo Trinity - Philly Vanilli's Ganya Generation) - (7:30) 90 BPM
from $1.93
Review: You may have already figured out that We Mean Disco's latest re-edit EP is an unashamed tribute to the self-styled King Of Pop, Michael Jackson. As usual, man of mystery Philly Manilli is at the controls, adding his distinctive touch to two Jacko classics, and a much-loved disco reggae cover version. The Manilli man's version of "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough" builds up brilliantly in a similar manner to The Reflex's various MJ revisions, while his rework of "Off The Wall" turns the disco classic into a loopy, floor-friendly house jam. The package is completed by a tasty, dub-wise rearrangement of Derrick Laro and Trinity's killer 1980 reggae re-invention of "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough".

Review: Total Science and DLR... Need we say any more? DLR sets the tone with his own "Thinking About Tomorrow" where a precision balanced warm tech groove carries jazz chords to unknown hypnotic pastures. "On The Edge", meanwhile, hurtles jauntily into funky town with a bassline that staggers dangerously behind the kicks creating a tripped out groove that really shouldn't work... But does. Innovative and true to the craft - Dispatch never disappoint.

Review: 2016 has been a good year for re-editor Evil Smarty. He's already put out killer material on Midnight Riot and Masterworks Music, and here pops up on Tonbe's Disco Fruit imprint for the first time. He gets down to business straight away with "Feel My Fire", a superb re-cut of the Osmonds' "I,I,I" that benefits greatly from some fresh new acid lines. "If It Feels Good" sees him in a celebratory mood (think sing-along disco funk with swinging new locked-in drums), while "Striking Back" - all elastic slap bass, dubbed-out Latin horns and disco-funk swagger - sounds tailor-made for sweaty, late night dancefloors. Finally, he ratchets the percussion up further on the hustling, T Connection style heavy disco of "Turn Me On".

Review: It's a Bristol thing: Deep In The Jungle mainstay Audiomission rallies up the crew for four skank-packed jungle workouts. Together they lay down "Live & Let Live" and "Yeah Man" - the former hits with bouncy mid 90s jungle mischief, hurts with modern production and massages with a conscious vocal line while the latter whisks us back to the rushiest of rave meltdowns. Elsewhere Pull Up Collective go solo with the siren wailing jungle blazer "Big Up" a track that's transformed into a ragged edge amen war cry by Kartoon. Proper.

Review: Guv's Dubz Audio imprint goes from the strength to strength, consistently identifying the originators in an increasingly cluttered market. "DAPVA" is the label's first v/a collection, featuring one of the label's most consistent artists (Hedex) and three label debuts from men who need no introduction. Hedex is all about the heavily coded funk in the riff, Dilate conjures up a cool subby roller with added industrial strength percussion while Ironlong brings the one-note riff hype in a similar way to Tyke or Hazard. Finally, K Motionz closes the show with some subversive drama as the build craftily teases into a hair-raising drop you'd never expect. Damagement.

Review: It's been a year since Slime's second instalment of their leading compilation Future Sound Of Garage series. Now the follow-up has finally arrived boasting 28 examples of what they to be consider music of the future. There are too many to name, but highlights include the ethereal and sensual future-step opener "Return" by Monoblue, the seductive, delicate chimes of the shimmering "Ever Feel" by Just Breathe, the sparse and raw 2-step of Pavv's "Let It Go" and even the uber commercial Ibiza-friendly anthem "Stone" by Project X is a (guilty) pleasure.

Review: Joey Negro has ordained Scandi producer Opolopo to work his magic on this, the latest Z Records comp. This he does and then some, literally zig zagging his way through Z Records' back catalogue like a louche disco serpent. He eventually whittled things down to 35 tracks, all of which are contained here both as full tracks and within his DJ mix. Exclusives include new Opolopo reworks of "Staying Power" and his own "Sustain". Other highlights include the speedy smooth funk of "Midnight Sun" by Doug Willis and the sensual grooves of "Face The Face" by The Sunburst Band.

Review: Chimpo on Exit. Is the world ready for this? Probably not. But since when did that stop guys like these? Especially with Trigga and Fox going toe-to-toe on the motorway-shredding rampage session "Ram Dance Man". Elsewhere "Bedsprings Riddim" warms up with sultry, jazzy come-to-bed tones before dropping into squeaky dancehall hanky-panky dopeness, "Suga Rush" has a touch of the old schools to its pads, breaks and pitched up vocal sample while "Stanna Stairlift" eases us into the groove with soft goosebump pads before dropping into some broad canvas stroke breaks which wouldn't have gone amiss on an old Big Bud record. Magnificent.

Review: DJ Agro's Sub-Liminal unleash their largest message yet with their debut compilation They Myriad Vol. 1. A chance to catch up, a chance to fill holes in your collection, a chance to realise the amount of next gen, hugely-hyped talent the label has... Damage Report, Dialogue, Too Greezey and Leaf lead the way as he run the label's vast gully gamut. From Fena's Moving Fusion-style womps on "Right Place Right Time" to Agro's gutter-chomping subversive Urban Takeover style bass roller "Not Fools" via Leaf's savage staccato stepper "New Life", the whole collection reflects just how much exciting D&B can be found just beneath the all too shiny surface.

Review: If you swap the first letters of Judge Funk's name, you get Fudge Junk. We're still trying to work out if that actually means anything at all. However, whilst we all ponder that existential question, lets listen to the music. Yam Who? pack five JF tracks in this single on their Midnight Riot label. Including their own take on "We Want Prince", where the original's crowd-chanting elastic bass hysteria becomes the funkiest disco-funk this side of Minneapolis. Elsewhere "Heads" is thumping mid-80s electro soul, "Rubbanova" is brassy, Loveboat-era boogie and "Deal With This" is deliriously glamorous shimmering disco-house escapism.

Review: Joe NFM has been on an epic roll this year, denting the scene with vibe after vibe after vibe both solo and with Concord Dawn. All of them hitting the spot with true classical craft, here we find him return to V with another four grooves. "MIA" rolls on a strangely timed vocal snippet that steps aside for a crucial amen at all the right times. "Wood & Water" wafts with jazzy chords and a very classic V or Full Cycle sound. "Hard Life" takes us down a much steppier, starker late 90s Total Science style approach while "Motto" does that classic groaning bass and unhurried groove thing that Joe has made his own. Precision.

Review: Here JD Twitch, head honcho Glasgow institution Optimo, proudly presents a rarity from the unique artist Dennis Bovell. Described as being a 'musical polymath, top flight producer, dub legend and one of the finest artists the UK has ever produced', Bovell released an album in 1981 called Brain Damage which was an absolutely bonkers fusion of Afrobeat, funk, dub, jazz, blues and more. Everybody bought Duran Duran's record instead of course, but justice prevails here as both "Heaven" and "Smouche" are rescued and re-released from the LP. Also featured is the awesome Garland Jeffreys experiment "Escape Goat Dub". Absolutely essential.

Review: When most daddies get home, you know you're in for it over some misdemeanour or other. Not this one, when he gets home it's all about the party. Father Funk wouldn't know deep or dark music if it came up and slapped him in the face Tango-style. Instead he does what he does best, like here where he presents five fruity, happy tunes to make us all forget our woes. Some of our faves include the buzzy-electro-bas-and-go-go-beats of the title track, the frantic funk workout of "Block Party" and the 80s soul-sampling hip-house sing-a-long "Soul City".

Review: 10 years of Symmetry - 10 years of Break being an absolute boss. Respected by all sides of the game, his on-point balance of a funk and true grit has united us for over a decade and he's about to drop a brand new full-lengther of his own productions and remixes to celebrate. The two cuts showcase his range and skillish charm perfectly: "Give In To Me" features long-term collaborator Kyo who gives her most powerful soulful vocal over classic Break organs and a heavily swung beat. "Who Got Da Funk" is much sharper and grizzlier with its wasp nest bassline and punctuated two-step. Both prime us for the imminent album.

Review: Lock stock and two smoking basslines: Bulgarian badman Monotype teams up with friends to makes some seriously threatening gestures on Young Guns: "I Don't Give A Shit" sparks up in earnest with an instantly recognisable sample, real funk to the drums and background textures. "Wondering" shows great samplecraft, too but with a classic Full Cycle style jump up funk to the subs and rolling shakers. "I'm John Grizzly" takes us down a ping-pong bass chamber with lively results while "Delays" closes on the nuttiest sandwich of the picnic where the bass is so twisted it flops either side of the kicks. Not a dull moment.

The 'king of edits' serves up exclusive, unreleased music from himself and a variety of his current favourite artists including Truccy (better known as Compost's Rainer Truby and Corrado Bucci) who present "Closer", a gorgeous house jam with a rolling groove featuring all the good stuff: swirling Rhodes keys, groovy congas and hypnotic vox. Man on the moment Eli Escobar from NYC who offers up the infectious Bushwick loft party vibes of "Back 2 Luv (feat Steven Klavier)". Doc Daneeka, most usually known for his techno work also appears with the ultra deep "I Promise (feat Seven Davis Jr - Kon Rework)" which was a real highlight too!

Review: We're not quite sure what Disco Tech is celebrating with the Anniversary Edits, but there's no doubting that it's a bumper collection, stuffed full of tried-and-tested dancefloor rearrangements. Across the 24 tracks, you'll find reworks of familiar favourites ("Dreadlock", "Jamaican Funk", 'Keep Forgettin"), and lesser-known gems ("I Like The Feeling", the deliriously elastic disco workout that is "You're A Winner"), as well as edits that span a wide range of moods and tempos. Highlights naturally come thick and fast, from the pitched-down, boogie-era reggae-disco of "Feel About U" (a killer edit of a tasty cover of an Evelyn "Champagne" King staple), to the subtly beefed up disco-funk strut of "Too Funkay").

Review: Nachtbraker's latest expansive EP for Heist Recordings - his first release of 2016 - boasts a host of hot, floor-friendly excursions. The EP's first two missives offer two distinctly different takes on disco-house - the throbbing sub-bass, extra percussion hits and early Daft Punk riffs of "Gotta Act To React", versus the smooth, classic disco-sampling loop-jam "Pollo Con Pollo" - before the woozy, drawn out "Intermezzlow" allows the Dutch producer to showcase the groovy, downtempo side to his work. The accompanying "Intermezzo" is a jazzy, percussive deep house variation on the same sun-kissed theme, while "Gotta Act To React (Float Mix)" re-casts the EP's opening tune as a hazy deep house bumper.

Review: 2016: A great year to be a fan of Marky's Innerground with EPs and albums galore since Command Strange & Intelligent Manners broke the seal in March. Now comes the label's first V/A selection in years. Marky takes the lead with the tightly sprung 70s-flavoured stepper "Funky Train" before Fokuz's Satl takes over with a beautiful collection of samples as strings and vocal swoon over the brushed beats. Deeper in to mix we hit Brazilian badness on the Bukemesque "Magic Strings", The Invaderz smash concrete with their razor-edited drums on "Pavements" and another Brazilian bass-smith closes with a cosmic Bungle-esque star-cruising stepper "Solar Heat". Hot.

Review: Vehicle have been contributing to the contemporary nu-disco scene like few others labels and, to them, nothing is an obstacle, and no genre or style should be excluded. Zed Zeppelin's dub version of "Heartbreaker" is a refreshing disco take on the original, with its riffs still intact and rolling; "Stop Your Pressure" by MJJ takes Michael Jackson to a next level; J Hammond's "Fantasy" is a disco beauty; The Militia's version of "Roxanne" by Police moves those infamous vocals to new and interesting pastures; Timmy Tommy's "Live Together" is an devilish little monster that manages to fuel house with a crazy set of organs.

Played by: Jimpster, Ben Sun
Review: Ben Sun made his debut back in 2013, delivering a chunk of life-affirming deep house for Quintessentials' Thanks You Freaks compilation. Three years on, Delusions of Grandeur has handed him the opportunity to showcase his talents over a three-track E.P. His style, which blends elements of electronic disco, deep house and glassy-eyed Balearica, is perfectly suited to the Freerange offshoot. Particularly enjoyable is "Star Ritual", where trippy, delay-laden boogie vocal samples ride a reverb-heavy, African-influenced drum rhythm and undulating, analogue bassline. Elsewhere, shirts may be removed for the bleep-heavy nu-disco/deep house fusion of "Full Moon", while the overwhelmingly tactile "Glass Waves" is little less than a piano-heavy chunk of early Italian deep house revivalism.

Review: Hot on the heels of Tru Thoughts' recent Tasty Beats compilation, the firmly party orientated label has rustled up a tenth instalment of their Party Breaks series. Now it's time to shake it up at every house party you can find this summer! Highlights include Bang N Mash's funky old skool Eric B mash-up "I Got Soul", Chudy's "So What?" which intertwines the Tom Tom Club and Destiny's Child to sizzling effect and finally DJ Clairvo who fuses big beat, ragga and vintage organ stabs on "Here Me Now All Massive". Boom!

Review: Sheffield's Project Allout don't mess about, having developed a reputation for championing all directions in the ways of bass. Every take on that three letter word is important to this label and that's why they cram so many hot jams onto their comps. Basically they're the Ferrero Rocher am-bass-adors and they are really spoiling us with 49(!) lengerz. Highlights include AT's bleepy 8-bit hip-hop groove "Flash Bang", the epic, symphonic trap of Dubzta's "Lord Of War" and the almost disco tech grooves of "Murkers' by King Hydra. All killer, no filler!

Review: Lately Leeds' Deelicious has seen his loose and groovy tunes grace the likes of Sound Exhibitions and Disco Fruit. Here he rolls out five sizzling new bangers. The urgent slice of socially conscious funk, "Lonely Town Lonely Street", kicks things off, "Trust Me" incorporates housier filtered loops into the mix and the title track is celebratory slice of disco-pop with some ace bloc-rocking breaks and punk-funk bass work. Elsewhere we enter orbit with the melodramatic sci-fi boogie of "Mechanical Body" and "Change Your Mind" is an amazing example of early underground dance music reconfigured by a 21st century perspective.

Played by: Aphreme
Review: For those of a certain age, the opening seconds of 808 State's 1991 rave anthem "In Yer Face" - a combination of memorable melody lines and loved-up chords - are still capable of setting the pulse racing. Bicep have taken on the task of updating Graham Massey and company's anthem for a new generation, serving up two fresh interpretations. Wisely, they emphasize the spine-tingling goodness of the Manchester outfit's chord progressions on their A-side remix, getting rougher, tougher and weightier as the track progresses. Their flipside acid dub - where electro-inspired breakbeats, heavy bass and floatation tank melodies are expertly combined with ragged TB-303 lines - recalls the similarly-minded thrills of DJ Parrot and Mark Brydon's 'Sunshine Dub' of DJ Mink's early Warp slammer "Hey! Hey! Can U Relate?".
