Review: Having already carved a decent name for himself in the nu-disco universe, 80s Child (aka Danny Worrall), now turns his hand to running labels. Masterworks is his new imprint, and this eponymous compilation is its debut release. It's a total all-you-can-eat buffet of contemporary disco, featuring a whole host of familiar names. There are a whopping 23 tracks on here, some of the best include Tomas Malo's sultry grinder, "After The Rain", Yam Who?'s bouncy sunkissed disco joint "Find Out" and the digi-freestyle breaks of TV's "Love Situation".

Review: Authoritative house imprint Paper dusts off its disco sibling with another well-curated compilation exercise. Featuring the likes of Alkalino, Flash Atkins, Tuxxedo, 80s Child, Yam Who and many more respected names in edit craft and genuine disco specialism, you know this is the real deal before you even press play. Highlights include Sophie Lloyd's bluesy fused edit of Kongas' "Tattoo Woman", Flash Atkins' P-funk busting stomper "The Jungle", Pablo & Shoey's slinky, slippery bass-laced "Love Feelin'" and Yam Who's straight-up disco slapper "Don't You Want My Love".

from $1.49
Review: There's a touch of the Clash Of Titans here, with prominent Brooklyn re-edit label Razor N Tape recruiting James Baron (Ron Basejam/Crazy P) for a heavyweight nu-disco release. Baron doesn't disappoint either, delivering three tough disco housers that touch on 80s electro-boogie ("Love Don't Wait"), soulful gospel ("Someday") and loopy, filtered funk ("We Supply").

Felt Nothing (Doctor Jeep remix) - (5:04) 128 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Here we have a brand-spanking new Bass Clinique affair by debutant Archive. "Make It Rain" is a half-step monster with some abrasively high levels of mutant bass - also featuring the vocal talents of MC Shantie - while "Felt Nothing" combines the harder edge of dubstep together with a techno flair in its percussion. There's yet more bass filth on "Through The Speaker", and Doctor Jeep transforms "Felt Nothing" into a true tech-house burner complete with deadly low-end. Top stuff.

from $1.49
Review: Mysterious Parisian disco-house maestro KS French, has rustled us up three more slices of what he does best as part of his ongoing Super Groove series. "The Fuzz" kicks things off with some beguiling, guitar echoes, elastic basslines, and a sleazy, hissy thump, "Make Me" does its own thing and goes slow, opting instead for dreamy, filtered Balearica-meets soul and lastly "We On It" closes the show with some classy 70s hotel bar-style grooves.

Keep It - (4:56) 110 BPM
from $1.49
Review: French funkateer Vas lays down four more floor-focussed edits. "Tell Me" gives Mayfield a turbo-charged groove restructure. Thumping, unashamed funk, it will ignite any party within a 20 mile radius. "The Q" then shoots us straight up into a space with a subtle touch on Doctor Dru's cult cosmic jam "The Voice Of Dru". Dig deeper for the infectious party chants of Trouble Funk edit "What Funk" before Vas shuts us down with the best edit of the set... A gritty, low-down take on Cameo's "Keep It Hot", it's guaranteed to ignite big moves.

Psychodelic Woman - (5:19) 100 BPM
from $1.49
Review: With the Ladykillers EP being his third EP under the YSE Saint Laur'ant moniker, it seems that Ant Plate (Rhythm Plate/YSE) seems to be growing more and more accustomed to the guise. That's good news for us and fans of high quality laid back palm tree disco jams everywhere. There are four tracks here, each of which takes a different direction, from filtered slo-mo disco-house loops ("Ghetto Woman") to weirded out samples over hypnotic shuffles ("Psychodelic Woman"), but our fave is the breezy, disco-drenched yacht rock of "Crying Woman".

Delusions Of Grandeur - (4:04) 173 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Is there ever a time when a Skeptical EP isn't welcome? Bringing the heavyweight depths direct from the North, "Imperial" shows a definite progression in his sound from his more minimal productions. Although space plays a big role in his work even still, there's a dizzying heartbeat of bass waveforms in flux in the title track, stripped bare in "Playground Chat" and used in devastating blows in "Delusions of Grandeur" behind warped effects. Final tune "Instant Reflex" brings back more of his jittery percussion to leave you feeling a bit tweaky.

What's Wrong by Zero T/Beta 2 on Metalheadz Cue Track
Zero T/Beta 2 - "What's Wrong" - (4:35) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: After a few years away from the scene, Zero T has returned to remind us who's the boss. Up there with Calibre and Break, his productions rattle with effortless funk and soul while exposing enough dark underbelly to appeal to fans of the harder sound. Hence this appearance on Metalheadz with Beta 2. "Election" is a growling, grunting roller with a simple-but-deadly bass lick while "What's Wrong" flips for a slower tempo halftime slinky session that nods deftly at the very early days of dubstep when UKG took a turn for the dark. For balance Beta 2 goes solo "The Edge". A bulbous roller a la late 90s Moving Fusion, watch out for those strings - when they come in, they'll sweep you off your feet.

from $1.49
Review: Having fallen to earth some years ago, Alien Disco Sugar have now been well and truly assimilated into Earth's culture. Ok, at least Earth's disco culture (it's the moniker of veteran Greek DJ Leonidas), and here he presents us with four more of his world-renowned edits. "Don't Stop" is good wholesome pop-disco, "Love Connection" is an upbeat boogie-down and features a flute solo, "My Number & Dime" is killer '80s electro-funk and things wrap up nicely with the squelchy low-slung bass groove of "Nobody (You and I)".

State Of Mind - (6:55) 117 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Nils Penner's first release for Freerange, 2012's Munich/Berlin EP, seemed to re-ignite his career, landing him subsequent appearances on Compost Black Label and Exploited. This return to Freerange as every but as warm and involving as you'd expect, with the title track skipping along on a wave of Innervisions-style bottom end, shuffling drums, heart-aching string chords, bluesy vocal samples and some wonderfully tactile riffs. Even better is Pittsburgh Track Authority's superb remix, which adds a little Detroit swing and classic Chicago deep house bounce to Penner's very European-sounding original (think jaunty piano chords, eyes-wide-shut strings and fizzing Motor City percussion). Bonus cut "State of Mind" - all melancholic pianos, drawn-out breakdowns and tech-house swing - is pretty tasty, too.

Midnight Riot, Vol 8 - The Dead Rose Company DJ Mix - (1:08:54) 119 BPM
from $1.49
Review: You'd struggle to find a more passionate champion of the nu-disco and re-edits scene than Yam Who. His edit-focused Midnight Riot label does a great job in spotting and showcasing talent. Somewhat predictably, this eighth installment in the label's self-titled compilation series is another winner. It features some 31 tracks, plus a bonus mix from the Dead Rose Music Company, and bristles with the kind of floor-friendly material that blurs the boundaries between electrofunk, nu-disco, house, funk, soul and, of course, straight-up disco. Given the sheer scale of the collection, picking highlights is tough, but look out for some urgent boogie business from Rayko, a dose of spinetingling, sax-laden sweetness from Goldboy, and a live bass and vintage synthesizer rinse-out from Fran Deeper and James Rod.

Nuits Sonores / Nectarines by Floating Points on Eglo Cue Track
Nectarines - (6:31) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Sam Shepherd has long been a master of the kind of ultra-deep, rolling, soft focus deep house that raises the spirits and soothes the soul. Even so, there's something incredibly special about "Nuits Sonores", the lead track from this must-have EP. Based around a deep, tactile groove and blessed with rising synth solos, dancing acid lines and his usual fireside Rhodes antics, the track rises magnificently for 12 spellbinding minutes. As it progresses, further elements make their way into the mix, until it reaches the kind of organic deep house climax that makes even the grumpiest souls go weak at the knees. Flip for "Nectarines", the kind of loose-limbed fusion of deep house sassiness, Detroit techno electronics and fluid jazz drumming at which Shepherd has always excelled.

Review: France's legendary swing-house producer Phil Weeks drops a new two-tracker on Robsoul. As per usual, it's nothing but sweet party vibes from Mr Weeks, who brings through his inimitable, filtered sample style to the floor. "Bad Chance Went Thru My Mind" is a disco-leaning house number complete with seductive vocal chops and sliding shots of percussion. "Baila Baila" is more of a DJ tool but it too comes chock-a-block with circling vocal samples and Weeks' typical flair. If you're into his previous stuff then this will certainly not disappoint.

Review: While no D&B album is complete without at least one DRS-fronted banger, these are the Manchester MC's first solo outings since his 2012 earthquake-inducing album I Don't Usually Like MCs. With Jubei and Marcus Intalex on production duties, you already know this is going to bang... "The Puppeteer" is a vicious, late night shredder spiked with sharp-tongued lyrics and even sharper bass. "Emergency", meanwhile, is a skank-factored bouncer over which DRS shows he can sing just as well as he can spit. Looks like album number two is well en route... Bring it.

Change Please by FD on Spearhead Cue Track
Into You - (5:18) 172 BPM
from $1.49
Review: For a large percentage of drum & bass fans, Spearhead as a label can do no wrong. Years of immaculate releases all bowing to the same ethics of great sounding, great feeling music has brought them widespread love and respect. The incendiary touch of Calibre has clearly reached London-based FD's mind for "Change Please", with its clarity and perfection drawing influences from the producer while bending its own path through clever vocal sampling and sharp percussion. "Into You" is just as lovely to listen to with that tweaked vocal and the tiniest ebb of piano; not that lovely is a particularly D&B term. It's a gorgeous pair of tracks and you should grab both with all of your hands.

There's a lot to boogie to here, and it'll all get the job done, but the best include Alkalino's cheeky house remake of Prince's Get Off ("23 Positions"), Jayl Funk's sensuous electro-boogie bomb "Do It Baby" and Butcher's own rework of Rockwell's '80s office party fave "Somebody's Watching Me". Basically all your party worries will be sorted in one with this package!

Review: Rising nu-disco hero P-Sol is back with a mixed bag - his words, not ours - of his latest reworks. As always with this guy, it's all about hazy funk jams and "Harlem World" kicks things off being exactly that with its rolling bass, gently wafting strings and lazy disco groove but adding a gangsta twist. Elsewhere we get the likes of spaced-out disco raunch on "Needy", retro dubby block party jams ("Perfect Combination") and far-out, wah-wah drenched, '70s funk rock on "Be Alright".

Highlights include the panther-like nocturnal rhythms of Maleka's "Hey You!", Green Streets' almost Balearic, breezy coastline funker, "Putting It Together", and DJ Buzzword's slow grind clap along, "Eat".

Mumdance's production dynamic is stark, minimal and drenched in all manner of unique sound design - the perfect bed for Novelist's melodic lyrical bounces as he flexes a complex yarn of money, moods and mindsets. With instrumentals thrown in for good measure, this will suit all bass selector styles.

Review: If you've not invested in a physical copy of Session Victim's excellent sophomore set, See You When You Get There, you probably should. Alternatively, you could pick and choose between the various digital samplers on offer. There's tons of high quality material on this third EP. Throughout, the German duo expertly tiptoe the fine line between disco and house, variously delivering warm, rolling, Rhodes-heavy deep house (the brilliant "The Most Beautiful Divorce Ever"), loose and organic disco-house ("Under Your Spell"), eyes-closed slow jams (the seductive and becalmed "Eeo's Place") and cut-up Balearic beats (the picturesque "Crystal Maze"). Throughout, the production remains warm, smart and endearingly dusty.

Review: Everyone loves a good story behind a record and few come with a more interesting narrative than this debut (and perhaps only) Talamanca System 12". The story goes that Gerd Janson and Phil Lauer were enjoying the Ibizan hospitality of International Feel boss Mark Barrot last summer, to the extent they were both gifted his unused Studio Electronics 'Boomstar 303' synth. Eager to repay such a lavish favour, Janson offered to remix a track Barrot was working on, an offer which eventually resulted in this 12". Four versions of "Balanzat" feature here, with an original, acid reflux, Tuff City Kids refix and ambient reprise to choose from. If this is the only Talamanca System record we will see it's a shame as it's a mighty fine addition to the International Feel discography.

Played by: Loz Goddard
Review: Tartelet have called upon a serious spread of heads for this sprawling selection of funk-infused, loose and lively house jams. Glenn Astro & Imyrmind are wonderfully dusty and downplayed on "Bochum", while Uffe brings plentiful amounts of Rhodes and other such joyous keys to a thoroughly funky conclusion. Max Graef has an equally shuffling, hand-played time of it, while Damiano Von Erckert gets a tighter groove out to get his own party started. Whichever track you plump for the sounds come on organic and soulful in the extreme, while the arrangements will have bodies popping all over the joint.

With - count them - 22 tracks of pure jungle vibes, there's no stone left unturned here, offering the very best from newcomers and veterans alike. Expect to get feet moving on this one - it's an essential purchase.

City Nights - (5:31) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Here's something of a pleasant surprise: a Steve Lawler record on Hot Creations that finds artist and label eschewing their typical sound in favour of something a bit different. The plainly titled "House Record" comes on like a long lost Tyree or Fast Eddie production - all "This Is Acid" stabs, thickset bass and lolloping hip-house rhythms. Flipside "City Nights" continues on a similar theme, with spitting drum machine percussion, jack-tracks style handclaps and an undulating bassline stirring long repressed memories of sketchy warehouse parties sometime around 1988. As a package, this is easily Lawler's - and Hot Creations' - best release for some time.

Review: Given the quality of Session Victim's 2012 debut album, Haunted House of House, expectations are naturally high for this follow-up. Like its predecessor, See You When You Get There takes a widescreen approach to deep house, with the German duo drawing on a myriad of influences, from jazz ("Hey Stranger"), soundtracks ("Crystal Maze") and evocative downtempo beats (the impeccable title track), to Atmosfear-ish jazz-funk ("The Most Beautiful Divorce In The World") and, most notably, classic Balearica (see the druggy pop of "Hyuwee" and deliciously slow "EOS Place". Best of all, though, is "Never Forget", a glorious blues-house epic laden with smoky vocal samples and thrilling piano motifs.

Review: For a label that only launched this spring, four volumes of creatively executed party jams is beyond impressive. We reckon this could be Funk Fusion's best yet, too. From Rhythm Scholar's respectfully tripped out twist on "Lucy In The Sky" to Fabioulous Barker's slap-bass blazed take on Skeelow via the funkiest ever version of 2Pac's "California Love", it's an impressive collection that leans towards the more subtle art of editing rather than crass bootleg cut-and-shuts and will have a lot more timeless appeal as a result.

Review: Birmingham's James Black may have done a runner to Australia but at least under his artist name, Arctic, he delivers a subtle a nod to his home country's current climate. Here he delivers four slammers (and a VIP mix) of prime bass music including the 4 x 4 rattler "Takin It Back", the psychedelic mayhem of the skippy garage rave of the title track and the fizzy, 8-bit wobble-fountain of "Inside (Arctic mix)".

Review: He moved halfway across the world to pursue drum and bass in the heart of St Petersburg and boy are we glad he did. Creating tantalisingly good productions right from the start of his career, the lad Demand have been touting for years as a massive "one to watch" is finally releasing a full-length LP this year in the form of Lighthouse. This EP is a sneaky peek of its contents, featuring the earth-shaking "Could Be", the extremely exciting Hybris remix of "Things Inside", one of Eastcolors' major hitters and "Dreams", a look into a crisper, darker side of the man. Extremely talented, highly recommended. 2015 is going to be his year.

Review: Having appeared on labels like Editorial and Bluenoises, Italian re-edit guy Dario Piana now surrenders his creation "Groove Line" to a host of disco producers to rework the magic. The original is all hypnotic percussion, elastic funky bass loops and sleazy 70s rhythms, while DJ Rocca delivers a killer remix, which is all moody electro basslines and hazy chords. Irregular Disco Workers put the foot down with a storming metallic hi-NRG rework and things chill out for G&D's sub aquatic stoner funk version.

Review: Every now and then Spanish disco maverick Rayko gets the time to release some of his in-demand edits on his own label, Rare Wiri Feelings. Maybe it was the Christmas lull, but he's found the time again, and here we have On The Beat. The title track cruelly, but beautifully, teases out B. B. & Q. Band's "On The Beat" to heavenly effect, "Satisfaction" is a moody glam stomp and "Sneak Preview" is slick soul pop, but it's the funk meets Italo-disco of the euphoric "Time Bandits" that's the standout here.

Review: The D&B scene wouldn't be the vibrant place it is today without the existence of Artificial Intelligence, so it's surprising to be reminded that they've "only" been around for a decade. Still, in those 10 years they've managed to cement themselves as true pioneers of their sound, pushing soulful drum and bass in ever darker directions. Tracks like "Deadly Melody" and "Thundercloud" showcase their love for all things deep and destructive, but opener "Forgotten Truths" is truly beautiful, albeit with rumbling stormclouds overhead. A stunning start to 2015.

Review: Following on from the success of last October's re-edit EP, Hull's Imfromull is back with a whole nine new re-jigs to thaw those January blues. As usual source material is all high-end disco funk of a certain vintage. Highlights include the beguiling, elasticated rapture of "You Got Me In The Mood", the phased-out mania of Harold Melvin And The Bluenotes' "Don't Leave Me This Way" and a totally bonkers laser-strewn version of the Supremes' "Keep Me Hangin On".

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: Sunday Roast - one of Reading's most prolific tech-house producers - comes through on his home label Soulserious with a new four-tracker to reign in the new year! The title track "Park Up" is a bass-heavy 4/4 mutant complete with seductive vocals and a swinging set of percussion. This one's for the Saturday night crew and all of the cuts are sure to rock just about any dancefloor from here to Scotland. Oh, and be sure to check out "Climatize" for some serious low-end meditation - bassline!

Review: This sick little puppy is the latest brainchild of one of the busiest men in drum & bass, Voltage. Representing for Low Down Deep, he's put together some of the most twisted beats you'll hear this winter. Thanks to his hyperactive jumps between jump up, jungle and dark D&B this is a release unlike any other. Offering hard hitting bass when you need it but equally pulling back to build the tension and soak up that darkly dangerous atmosphere in tunes like "Run Tingz". Disturbing and deeply addictive, you need this in your life.

Review: What is there to say about Shogun Audio that hasn't already been said at length directly into your ear at 3am? Friction's brainchild has become one of the scene's biggest, most successful and perhaps most importantly one of the most highly-regarded labels in recent years. A decade might not be a long time in D&B talk, but 10 years has been long enough for Shogun to put its stamp on almost everything making its way from the underground and into the blinding light of day. From the experimental sounds of Alix Perez, Rockwell and Icicle to the spellbinding Technimatic, right through to the chart-bothering escapades of Camo & Krooked, this is a flip through the highlights of Shogun's life. In case you forgot, it's been a brilliant one so far. Roll on the next 10 years.
