Review: Hot off Randall's Mac 2 label, Pieces is a ludicrous collection of behemoth tunes found, remixed or simply well-placed in no particular order. Why? Because he's good to us like that. Featuring a stellar line-up of OGs and freshly hooked-up newcomers, this is 18 tracks of pure drum and bass energy ready to make a mess of your cochlea. Special mentions for the DRamatic remix of Lenni Dee Ice's "We Are IE" and Trex's massive stomper "Sudden Impact" which should currently be tearing up the dancefloor in your nearest darkened warehouse with a soundsystem. Instant purchase.

Review: Don't be fooled by the plethora of comedic, pun-tastic artist names scattered throughout the track list for this sixteenth volume of Vehicle's Boogie Box Edits series. Look harder, and you'll note the distinctive scalpel alias of label boss Valique (simply "V") throughout. His edits - informed by his past in funk breaks as well as disco, boogie and shameless party-starting fun - rarely disappoint, and there's much to enjoy here. Highlights include a toughened-up, straightened out version of the Whispers' "It's A Love Thing" (complete with house pianos), a filter-heavy disco-house tweak of the Johnson Brothers' "Stomp", and a deliciously breezy rework of an old Billy Ocean fave that's worth the admission price on its' own.

from $1.49
Review: For Midnight Riot's latest trip into the compilation market, Yam Who has put together an expansive set designed to pay tribute to Ron Hardy, the Music Box, and the formative years of Chicago House. Interestingly, this is done by mixing vintage material - Mach's influential "On & On", Ron Hardy versions of Nightlife Unlimited's disco scorcher "Peaches & Prunes" and Ragtyme's early house gem "I Can't Stay Away" - with tribute style tracks from Chicago legends and contemporary artists (Gene Hunt, Robert Owens, Ooft, Leo Zero, Yam Who, Robot 84, 80s Child). It's a simple idea, brilliantly executed, with much of the material successfully joining the dots between Italo, proto-house, electrofunk and, of course, early Chicago house.

Get Over You by Pontchartrain on Whiskey Disco Cue Track
Pontchartrain - "Get Over You" - (7:26) 116 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco imprint continues to be one of the more reliable sources of disco and boogie re-edits. Rather predictably, this latest installment in the series is bristling with high-grade dancefloor material. There's some riotous, party-minded disco-funk from newcomer Scott M, who delivers a killer touch-up of Vernon Burnch's "Get Up", and a thrillingly low-slung chunk of rolling disco-house from VinylAddicted and SMQ. While Pontcharain also provides a tightened-up, filter-heavy tweak of France Joli's Prelude classic "Gonna Get Over You" - heavy on the delay, and with the urgent hustle of house - it's the contribution from Canadian stalwart Eddie C that stands out. A smooth, midtempo cut-up of a lesser-known rollerboogie jam, it rises and falls in all the right places.

Review: Following impressive collaborative outings on Dirt Crew and their own Splendor & Squalor label, Brame and Hamo once again join forces, this time for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings. Predictably, there's genuine warmth throughout, as the duo showcases more tactile deep house compositions. Opener "Parish Rumours" sets the tone, lacing filter-clad female vocal samples and twinkling melodies over a compressed, cymbal-heavy groove. The filters once again come to the fore on the sweet, soul-sampling "Ghetto For You", while "Hotshot" delivers the kind of loose, hazy and jazz-flecked deep house jam - think hazy horns, tumbling chords, held-note strings and bluesy vocal cut-ups - that evokes images of humid days reclining on Adriatic terraces and Mediterranean cliff-tops.

Review: To mark reaching fifty releases, Editorial has decided to push the boat out a little, unleashing an album's worth of edits, reworks, re-imaginings and sample-heavy cut-ups from regular contributors Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee. There are few surprises, but plenty of floor-focused groovers and breezy summer jams, in a range of tempos, that variously touch on funk, soul, disco-funk and boogie. It will almost certainly take you a while to really get your head round it all, but it's worth the effort; the fluttering, slap bass-propelled "Phunkosphere" and rip-snorting funk rework "Sho Nuff" are amongst the strongest things they've done to date.

Review: The long-standing Editorial stable have welcomed many choice boogie and disco heads to do the honours in reviving classic gems from the seemingly endless mine of 70s and 80s wares, and they're at it once again with the Good Fot Get Down collection. Regular contributors Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee keep things lightly shuffling and laid back on "Let U Go" while The Owl gets into a more stripped and stiff floor-focused funk. The Funk District have more clear intentions in getting the party started with "Disco Dynamite", while Spankie Hazard gets a little jazzy on "Party". Whatever your funky needs, Editorial have it all and more.

With exclusive cuts and versions firing from all the label's most consistent contributors, it covers all relative corners creatively; from Killjoy's gameshow grime "Turnt Ones VIP" to the chiselled, sinewy two-steps of Terror Danjah & Zed Bias's "Telepathy" via the sheet metal snares on Flava D's "Break", this collection goes further than representing a forward-thinking imprint but also documents exactly where bass music is heading in the future. Grand prix business.

Review: Being misled is rarely as excellent as this, as Spearhead share not ten but twenty five absolute bangers for no reason other than to be jolly nice folks. Oh, and to celebrate their ten year anniversary, of course. This digitised version of the hugely successful pre-release coloured vinyl pressing contains all the most requested tracks from the back catalogue that are no longer available as 12" singles as according the the Spearhead crew, all remastered and spick and span for 2015. Ten sets itself apart from the host of retrospectives out there by also containing tracks specially selected from the DJs and producers that have supported the label over the last decade, helping to complete a complete and super varied collection of flawless tunes. Add this to your list now.

Review: Sao Paulo's finest export Bungle has a long history of hitting the decks hard and "Alone" is his latest tribute to the old school. Mixing vintage sounds with fresh drums and bass, the title track "Alone" is a perfect set starter to get things moving in the dance. "Looking Back" is the ticket tune if industrial, heavyweight bangers that morph into beautiful, flowing rollers are your bag. "Arcadia" channels old school Dillinja down to the dark slamming bass and percussion that keeps pushing back against swirling synths. Final track "Fast Forward" offers a more minimal sound, stepping up with tribal drums before building into a whirlwind roller, tapping into an addictive old school sound. It's pretty much perfection and you need it.

Armed with the right amount of squelchy low-end weight and groove that won't quit, it's Cole at his very best. For more sample mastery flip for the dubby disco lollops of "Make Your Body Move" and the Vadim-esque cosmic hip-hop meanderings of "Big Pimpin'". Super spacious. Another classic 12" from the Medina discography!

Review: Following a recent acclaimed re-edits outing under his alternative Loshimi alias, Serbian producer Milos Djordjevic once again dons the Tonbe guise for a trip into cheery disco-house/nu-disco/deep house fusion. As usual, he has his eyes fixed firmly on the dancefloor, delivering a quintet of tracks that lace chunky house grooves with all manner of authentic disco elements (think clipped guitars, rubbery bass, slippery synths and breezy vocals). There's naturally plenty to enjoy, from the Clavinet-laden disco-funk thrills of "Give Me Funk", to the dreamy vocal sweetness of "This Is The Place", via the sharp string stabs and parping horns of "Disco Frisco".

Review: V Recordings sister label Chronic steps up to give us volume 2 of their Rollers series, featuring 16 exclusive tracks from the freshest talent and the most exciting names currently holding down the underground scene. The label was reborn in 2013 with the mantra of presenting the world with no frills dance floor Drum and Bass and judging from this latest offering they certainly seem to be fulfilling their mission. From the rolling jungle sounds of Bladerunner's epic "Lock Off VIP" to the distorted growls of Command Strange's "Riots" if you are looking to get the dance floor bouncing, then Chronic have you covered.

from $1.49
Review: New York's P-Sol is becoming a trusted source of chunky, floor-friendly reworks. Here he delivers another quartet of gems, on the third volume of his ongoing Mixed Bag series. He kicks things off with "Physical", a tooled-up, floor-friendly re-cut of the Olivia Newton-John pop classic of the same name, before showing Marvin Gaye some love on the sumptuous, filter-heavy loop jam "If You Let Me". Arguably the EP's two strongest moments come last, though; the delay-heavy proto-house dub business of "Tonight", and "Can't Judge", a chunky, bass-heavy re-edit of Cookie's 1982 roller-boogie classic "Can't Judge a Book By Its' Cover". All killer, no filler, as the saying goes.

Review: Is it that time already? Yep, yet another installment in Katakana's ever progressing re-edit series is here and this time the spotlight shines on regular label contributor Timewrap who delivers four of his finest. Having last occupied this role covering Duran Duran back on number 14, Timewrap looks more to other eras this time round. We get loose and funky 90s hip-hop vibes on the Beasties-sampling "Dopesmokah" and "Old Bisties". Meanwhile headnodding retro 70s funk meets party rap on "Bambooka" and the breezy, jazz guitar-laced Balearic house of "Jazzme" wraps things up nicely.

Whistler - (6:13) 119 BPM
from $1.49
Review: For the first Magic Feet single of 2015, label boss Craig Bratley has decided to showcase the work of two relatively little-known producers; Correspondant contributor Paresse, and Clouded Vision associate Markus Gibb. The former kicks things off with "Nada", a stylish Italo chugger that makes great use of reverb, delay, foreboding electronics and sparkling synthesizers. The Swedish producer also offers up "Little Wanderer", a surprisingly grandiose chunk of fluttering Balearic disco. Gibb flips the script a little on "Prey", a slightly dark, post-punk influenced chugger blessed with fuzzy, atmospheric guitars, before rounding things off with the moody, mid-tempo rave revivalism-meets-new wave throb of "Whistler" (which, incidentally, does feature whistling).

Review: Everyone's gotta have an angle and Nomine's is certainly unique - he makes deep dubstep with Far Eastern influences. His latest missive boasts a sound that evokes mystical temples, secret rituals and ninjas. The sparse and brooding "Blind Man" is based around a movie sample where a young whippersnapper learns the ways of the spirit from a wise old master. "To The Sky" again features minimal arrangements peppered with bassy belches and mystical vocals courtesy of Lustina, and finally "Nomine's Robot" wraps up the release on an uptempo note - all housey kicks and rimshot percussion. Classy and unique!

Review: The beats are big and the vibes are plentiful in this massive remix release from the Deep In The Jungle crew. Already releasing a massive anthology of anthems earlier on in 2015, they return with refixes of some of the more devastating tracks. Bringing in the likes of Kartoon, Brian Brainstorm, SR and Digbee to bring new life into these tunes has made this EP one of the tuffest jungle releases in a long time. If junglism is your thing and you're tired of pale imitations, you need an injection of this in your system. Turn it up and feel that dub!

Pocket Piano (breakbeat mix) - (6:08) 83 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Strahil Velchev has been a lot of places in his prolific career thus far, but he's never been to Running Back before. With the title track the Hungarian production power house steps up to the plate with a surefire peak time rocker, piling on thick electro synth lines and plenty of techno tension built for the large-scale experience. "Diversion" is no less catchy even if its temperament is far sunnier, working that playful edge that has always accompanied Kink tracks, but then "Pocket Piano (Breakbeat Mix)" throws a curveball in the shape of an old-skool breakbeat groove colliding with warm and fluffy arpeggios before opening up into a joyous piano rave experience.

Review: Destination 60s as Beatnik City follow up last year's breakthrough compendium "The Rio District" with an exploration of pop roots, contemporised by swinging breakbeats and premium party signatures. Instantly recognisable jams include the ill behaviour of Ree Keen's take on "Louie Louie" and the ongoing beat mischief of Fab Samperi's homage to Sonny & Cher but the slightly less obvious versions shouldn't be overlooked either... The frenetic harmonica-snapping of Leygo's "Loose Wheel" and the lounge-writhing slipper jazz of Mad Doc's "Nori's Gem". Authentic big beat business.

Next Martin Depp keeps it deep too, adding vintage New York garage vibes for good measure before Large Joints go all out spacey 2-step for an EP highlight.

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.

Review: Hands should already be searching out the debit card when Demand Records gets mentioned but in case there was ever any doubt, let's look at Roygreen and Protone's credentials. Both still feeling the success of last year's Speak The Truth EP. Halfstep hurter "Warman" begins with a raw statement of intent, skipping beats, screeching out feral bass and snarling with dancehall fury thanks to strictly unique vocals. "Homeground" takes things at a smoother pace, offering old school sounds before diving deep into a knee-shattering bassline, while "Navarro" rounds off the trio with lush keys and rolling vibes; a quick re-visit to the RG/P heartlands. It's fire. Trust us.

Review: Long-term collaborators Pete Herbert and Dicky Trisco once again join forces, this time for a trio of cuts that mark the first instalment of the Paradise Row series. There's naturally much to admire, from the breezy, Latin-influenced keys, Balearic disco grooves and killer vocal samples of "Hanging Out" (think T-Coy meets Reverso 68), to the eyes-closed warmth, tumbling acoustic guitars and chugging groove of closer "Aperol Sunset". Arguably best of all, though, is "Machine 16", a thrillingly upbeat cut that peppers a chunky Balearic disco groove with killer pianos and sweet, life-affirming guitar licks. If cheery, feelgood disco is your thing, you need Paradise Row Volume 1 in your life.

Review: Daytoner appeared on many a music lover's radar with album Sunburst Radio back in 2012. Since then he's gone underground, but now re-emerges into daylight with four feel good anthems. The sound of the EP is split right down the middle with "Stevies Stomp" being a raucous re-jig of Wonder's Uptight and "Smokin'" being a more bewitching take on similar 60s soul, whilst there's a rockier 70s sound in the second half. "Keiths Soup Thing" is big beat take on classic Stones and "Like Jumping" is an effervescent slice of jump up, pop-ska at its sunniest.

Review: DJ Butcher has gathered together an all-star cast for this latest re-edit missive on his always on-point ChopShop label. Experienced scalpel fiend Leftside Wobble kicks off proceedings with "Dope Love", a heavyweight, hip-hop style funk cut-up that makes great use of Candi Staton's vocal from "You Got The Love". Fast-rising, Warrington-based boogie lover 80's Child weighs in with a deliciously glassy-eyed chunk of downtempo soul, before the lesser-known Love Drop delivers "To Prove My Love", a great blue-eyed soul/AOR disco shuffler made from a classic chunk of West Coast stoner rock. Finally, West Country producers Situation steal the show with "Jay Bee", a tasteful James Brown re-work that bobs and weaves in all the right places.

Played by: Randall
Review: The DRS album is here - and it's teeming with collaborations, as in every single track. 808s are rocking at full tilt in "Concrete Blocks" thanks to those finer touches by Addison Groove, while basslines get gnarly as the lyrics of "No Answers" thanks to Skeptical. Beats go micro on "Captivity" thanks to Lynx, while the vocals are full of soul. Push further through the LP and the R&B vibes stick with "Mid Mic Crisis" featuring Toddla T, and Marcus Intalex lends a dubby hand on the oldschool throw back grooves of "Emergency". And does DRS save the best until last with Calibre collaboration "Something To Believe"? You be the judge.

Review: Graeme "The Revenge" Clark has come a long way since his first full length, the 2011 re-edits meets original production set Reekin'structions. He's spent the last few years moving away from that style, instead focusing on indulging his passion for making original house productions, most of which have come out on his Roar Groove imprint. Here he continues that process with Love That Will Not Die, an all-action house set that should be classed as his debut album proper. Informed by various strains of classic house - Morales' Red Zone dubs, feel good Italian house, US deep house and more Balearic offerings - it's a typically evocative and intoxicating set, with tactile melodies, vintage sounds and shuffling drum machine rhythms throughout.

Review: So why is this EP called The Ride? At a guess, it's because Bank knows how to set a tune up and let it ride on out into the sunset and some of these are absolute gems. Second track "Tombstone" is especially impressive, moving forward with choppy drums and an evocative vocal sample, taken higher by the lightness of his synth-led atmospherics before deep dubby bass drops. "Smile" is the EP's other showstopper, kicking off with reggae vibes before effortlessly becoming a proper widescreen rollout. Sam Bank has everything fine tuned and on point. Get to know.

Review: It's a while since we last heard from Edinburgh-based re-editor B-Jam, who previously impressed with a couple of excellent EPs on Superbreak. Here he resurfaces on Fingerman's Hot Digits label, delivering a selection of edits clearly aimed at house dancefloors. The real killer is "Sundog", which although based on loops from Clout's Balearic, reggae-disco classic "Sunshine Baby", does a terrific job in chopping up and beefing up the original elements. It's accompanied by a housier, acid-flecked rework from Fingerman. Elsewhere, he turns a disco-funk jam into a straight-up house hustler ("Juicer"), reaches for the filters and heavyweight kick-drums on the synth and slap-bass rinse-out "On It", and delivers another deliciously stuttering dancefloor cut-up ("Good Turn Out").

Review: Dutch DJ and producer Olivier Boogie has been doing his thing in Amsterdam, largely without credit, for the best part of a decade. He's previously released both original productions and re-edits, with two contributions to a split Lumberjacks In Hell release back in 2012 standing out. Here he returns - at long last - with an edit EP of his own for Whiskey Disco. There's naturally much to admire, from the soaring strings, undulating bass and disco-funk hustle of "Got To Have Loving" and jaunty Rodriguez re-rub "Can't Get Away" being particularly potent. He also delivers a dash of head-nodding boogie ("You Know Who"), and turns a little-known funk jam into a shuffling house hustler ("Lost In The Crowd").

Review: Leading London funk enthusiasts Jalapeno bring the heat with another annual collection. Uniting recent highlights with killer exclusives, it's a detailed document that sheds light on the spicy imprint's many directions... Flexing from the gutsy soul of Aldo Vanucci's instant 60s "What Happened" and Ephemerals' emotional white-flag-waving "You Made Us Change" to booty-shaking boogie such as Basement Freaks' "Ain't Got Nobody" and Supasoul's "Funky Hot Grits" via Kraak & Smaak's lush, lolloping synth-laden cruiser "Drunken Master", it's a fitting testament to one of UK dance music's most authentic, dedicated imprints. Get funky.

Review: To mark the tenth release from Sheffield's finest, Chip Butty, the label have paired up Little Mesters and Dr Cryptic and strictly instructed them to deliver some 'hard 4x4 bass music'. Well they've come out fighting, albeit with some sparks flying, with six tracks spread over the EP. LM highlights includes the horror-bass pounder "Buzzin" and the snarling 4x4 prowler "Work". Our faves of the good Doctor include the demented disco meltdown "C-Word" and the end-of-the-world fuzz-out "Ph Derkhead". Dark, in a good way.

from $1.49
Review: Freerange Records kick off the first part of their Double Century vinyl edition with four finely honed cuts of prime contemporary deep house that reflect the ever evolving tastes of the label. Boss man Jimpster takes the lead spot with the cyclical and spiritual "Head Spin" while by way of contrast Matt Masters and Pippo Ceretti bring a much more minimal approach to their tribal-flavoured "Xenophilia". Andy Hart has a more classic, smooth deep house approach on "MYLNY" which comes on rousing and romantic with its heartfelt string lines, and then Shur-I-Khan throws down a moody beat track to get you loose and limbered up.
