Review: Name a label who hasn't succeumbed to Serum's charms. You can't, can you? Infecting the world with a special blend of charged-up basslines and hardline percussion, he manages to hit the perfect mid-way point between old fashioned skanking and on-point production values. Careful not to overcook the method, he leaves enough rough with the smooth to give off that uniquely raw dancefloor-ready sound. Each track on this EP jabs and ducks ready for a fight but its "Death Wish" that really steals the show with its dark 'n' filthy bass and creeped-out B-movie atmos. Get ready to get freaky.

Review: Antipodean disco dabbler, Dr Packer, will see you now. He's now reopened his surgery and this fifth volume is simply bursting with stuff that's good for you. There are eight new jams in total including the cheeky pop ragga of "Sensi", the well-oiled bass machine "Get Down" and electro-funk squelcher "One For Me". A fine remedy for any disco related ailment!

Review: Johan Cederberg, or otherwise known as HNNY (and strictly pronounced "honey"!), is Sweden's new house don and he's been at the forefront of Local Talk's impressive run of form as of late. For this latest release, Local Talk has put together nine edits by the man himself, all loosely based around the old-school Chicago house sound. You got slick, modernised edits of none other than Dj Steak, DJ Duke, Purple Velvet and Lee Webster, among others. In a nutshell, this is simply a bundle of great dance floor tracks, effective as either DJ tools or as stand-alone songs. Large up!

We Mean Disco - "Paradise (Vienna International ReGroove)" - (8:02) 100 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having previously mined the worlds of disco, boogie and funk for inspiration, Smooth Operators sees the We Mean Disco crew change tack. Instead of their usual, party-friendly fare, we get a quartet of Sade revisions, with some of the sultry singer's finest moments getting the rework treatment. So, Mr Matrix delivers an undulating, super-smooth deep house version of "Couldn't Love You More" (complete with thrilling analogue bass), KidPariz turns "Hang Onto Your Love" into a loopy, mostly instrumental chugger, and We Mean Disco give "Paradise" the sweet, lo-slung, midtempo disco-house treatment. Best of all, though, is Dan K's chunky, sax-laden rework of the anthem-like "Smooth Operator"; a sing-along deep house classic in the making.

from $1.49
Review: After putting out release for Macabre Unit, Imperial Audio and Phantom Hertz Recordings, Feonix debuts in full on Uprise Audio with a debut, self-titled album. Littered with collaborations, the album is a dark affair with light added by the voices of Simetra and Kaya, while Na Kika's contribution to "Central" keeps the mood hallowed. For a chunk of empty space punctuated by bass stabs, tribal drums and haunting chimes check out "Source", while "All I Ask" has the clunk of Scuba's "Latch" paired with detuned vocals that bring to mind FKA Twigs. And for no nonsense dubby dubstep it's all about "West".

from $1.49
Review: The serene stylings of Austrian drum and bass maestro Paul SG have been soothing thousands across the world and on his latest release for Jazzsticks, there's a definite sense of the good old days returning to his sound. "Deegee" starts the EP off a rolling tip with bass straight from the old school, followed closely by "This Is Jazz" which, as expected, lifts things up with soulful jazzy vibes. "Chief Grand Master" takes that old James Brown sample to new levels of old school introspection and "Ballad of a Nubian Princess" is as sultry as they come, rolling out smooth and lush. Final track "Love Theme" is dramatic and deep with a bassy kick, just how we like it. Get some emotive rollers in your collection, you definitely won't regret it.

Review: Serious edit heat from the young Parisian who's always on the Pulse: Three well known funk soul classics, Rhyze's "Relax & Enjoy" gets an upbeat, roof-raising treatment with full emphasis on the instantly distinctive groove. Spinners' "It's A Shame" enjoys a sun-splashed Brazilian treatment while GQ's "Shake" gets a turbo-charged shake-up that makes it more floor friendly than a thick shag carpet. And that's friendly. Get to know.

Review: Danish deep house talent Paxton Fettel unleashes three disco-infused house cuts through disco specialists Apersonal Music. Fettel joins the family of the label's fine roster of retro-tone music makers backed up with a Jimpster remix. Always in the search of timeless music pieces the Spanish imprint sure found a fine exponent of their unique trippy melodic universe with Fettel's offer on this EP. "She's All Right", "Sundown, as the Beat Gently Skips" and "Tripped Out" make a solid statement of nu-disco editing in a house fashion, new to the artist but with a solid experience on the label's trajectory. To push the boundaries of Fettel's sound no other than high-fi music creator Jimpster to remix "She's All Right", opening a special space for the track on any dance floor filled with raving house lovers.

from $1.49
Review: For this latest release on the long-running Chopshop imprint, Greece-based bossman DJ Butcher has decided to flip the script. Instead of delivering cheeky disco re-edits, Dope Hip Cuts revisits the now overlooked world of classic hip-hop mash-ups. Ill Advised's excellent opener "Grunt Without The Noise", for example, expertly fixes a Public Enemy acapella to a sweaty, horn-heavy funk groove, while Captain Futuro's "Break Me Off" and "Club Warzone" turn more recent hip-hop and R&B jams into toe-tapping, head-nodding disco-meets-jazz-funk dancefloor jams. Phat Camel impresses, too, with "I Wish", which doffs a cap to Yam Who's infamous early 2000s reworks of contemporary soul, hip-hop and R&B killers.

You Know Who - (6:06) 106 BPM
from $1.49
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").

from $1.49
Review: Not to be confused with the techno-minded Dutch label of the same name, this Deep Sense is based out of Mexico, they have a penchant for the funkier side of the dance and the cheekier side of edit culture. They proved it on their inaugural voyage in November 2014, and they're proving it once again right here... Kicking off with the sax-massaging jack-jam "The Road To Kalakuta" the whole album is an instant party full of sassy sonic surprises. Highlights include the dusty vinyl crackles and heaving harmonics of Rafael Fernandez's "Nothing's Changed", the epic synth-slapping cosmicity of Funk My Jesus "24K", the classic funk guitar squeezes of Chuggin Edits "We Got The Funk". And that's just a handful of party peals to be harvested from this 16-track heavy album. Bon voyage indeed!

Played by: Dusty Tonez
Review: Booty Fruit badman Funk Ferret steps up to man the Goodgroove machine with a low-end lurking five piece. "Don't Stop" is a classic turntablist joint, loaded with cool samples and a burpy bassline. "Keep It Real" is a wholesome disco flexer complete with some very polished slinky bass while "The Anthem" is an understated funk frenzy with slap bass, 8-bit trills and great use of samples. "Give It Up" is one for the bass-hungry as the low-end takes centre stage with all sorts of cool production touches and reverse twists, very much like a Featurecast joint. Finally we hit "Soul City", a horn-heaving strut-out layered with dense bass textures and loads of cool attention to detail on every twist. Genuinely fresh.

There's a further four jams to check out here too, including a cool, Balearic rework of Sheila E's "Love Bizarre", a totally dubbed out version of "Walking On Sunshine" and the synthy, meandering disco house joint, "Take My Love".

Sad Future - (6:08) 110 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Serbian disco/house type Tonbe seems to reserve the Loshmi alter-ego for some of his finest reworks; killer edits of often obscure or overlooked material that shows due reverence to the source material. That's certainly the case here, as he works his way through a variety of styles over the course of six suitably hot edits. So, he treats us to some soaring '80s soul revivalism ("Real Love"), jaunty but tight, piano-laden electrofunk ("Be My Love"), surging, high-octane, disco-funk (the string laden madness that is "Depends On You"), and even a dash of punchy boogie-rap (the brilliant "Sad Future", which comes complete with an excellent spoken vocal and some terrifically sleazy sax solos).

Review: Killyjoy's back and he's brandishing an ode to the girls of his hometown Nottingham. "Gyalist Riddim" proves that wobble ain't dead yet, with the original and its three mixes going heavy on the full on fat low end. The title track adds some serious snare roll chaos to the mix, whilst Deadbeat adds a slammin' 4x4 twist. Asa & Sorrow keep it hard and underground and Doctor Jeep wraps up the package with some deliciously doomy tropical vibes.

Review: Longstanding west coast jungle informer 6Blocc comes correct with an album of chunky edits. Complementing the lower-tempo "Gritty N Grimey" parallel release with whistle-stop 170 ruffage, each of the 21 cuts take the London template and bake it in classic Cali sunshine. Highlights include the super-freaky Adina Howard reference "Freak In The Jungle", a gun-toting Blackstreet cowboy cut "Diggity" and the Marky-esque soulful roller "Time Flies". Capturing ever deft move of 6Blocc's commitment to the US jungle movement, Cali Jungle is the ultimate document of where both he and his fellow 170BPM countrymen are at right now... And it's a great place to be.

Love You Too Much - (6:53) 105 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Copenhagen-based crate digger Ziggy Phunk has built up a big following on SoundCloud for his boogie, electrofunk and '80s soul reworks. Here he pops up on Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint with a white-hot collection of six of his finest. While seasoned diggers and old heads may spot some of the source material, for the most part he's breathing new life into long-forgotten gems. There's plenty to get excited about, from the breezy piano solos, rubbery bass and bongo-laden grooves of the impeccable "All Night Long", to the clipped guitars, darting synths and Jheri curls of "Every Girl". Arguably best of all, though, is the saucer-eyed, loved-up sweetness of closer "Love You Too Much", a prime slice of yearning '80s soul tweaked to perfection with the addition of some top notch use of delays.

Review: If you're after a slice of dubby rolling drum and bass perfection, Mark System has just made your day. Set to release his debut LP on legendary cult label Exit Records this pair of devastatingly dark tracks come as a warning of what's to come. "Optix" has the presence and swagger of old school Photek, and "Pursuit" picks up a dangerous urgency from knife-sharp percussion that screams on-point production. This man is on fire. Get yourself acquainted.

Review: Amsterdam's Detroit Swindle duo head back to the Heist imprint after an impressive string of releases on labels such as Tsuba Records and Dirt Crew Recordings, and classy, tech-ready house is the order. "Allright (We'll Be)" is a disco-fuelled house gem with one of those vocal samples that'll log itself in your brain, while "Pursuit" is stranger, more wonky and a right burner when it comes to its percussion. "Heads Down", as the name suggests, is nuttin' but a club bomb and one hell of a DJ tool!

Kicking things off with the legendary Total Science guys and the one and only S.P.Y headed up by Chroma on remix duties, "Whoonga" is a relentless roller, pushing on through dark bass and sparks of light from harsh pads and electric samples. In "Stoned", Calibre calms his intensity levels for a chill roller packed with lucid dreamy sounds and tight percussion. Riya joins old friends Total Science to lend her sultry vocals to a crisp, soulful stepper in "Walk The Same Lines" and Utopia henchman Mako

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: Want to hear something that'll blow your complacent brains out? Get a load of this: Icicle and Friction have been in the studio together and created the sound of two planets colliding in the form of "Crucifix". Luckily this meeting of minds has been fully documented by Shogun Audio and packed up nicely into a perfect two-piece release. On the other side, Friction joins the ever inspirational Technimatic fellas for "Floating Frames", a tune so sweet it could bring entire civilisations to their knees. So it's fair to say this release has all aspects of universal domination covered.

Played by: Icicle, War Machine
Review: Fracture create some of the most experimental drum and bass out there, so bringing forward their dancehall-eclectic-inspired sounds with the help of Mancunian producer Chimpo was only going to create disturbances of the best kind within the scene. "From Early" takes the Fracture dancehall sound to the next level but it's in "Hard Food" that the rave and hardcore madness kicks in and things start getting a little wavy from there on in. To tidy up, "From Early" gets a reduction mix from Fracture, stripping back the shimmying and getting right down to the bare, bassy bones. A legendary collaboration in the making.

Count To Ten (feat Enei - vip) - (5:23) 57 BPM

Review: DRS working with Enei and LSB was music to our ears before we even heard the track. Drop Tyler Daley's blistering vocals into the mix too and you've got yourself a release that's 100 per cent drum and bass purity. "The View" starts things on a euphoric high with LSB rolling out those lush vibes he does so well. Tyler adds his vocals and what results is a cinematic love story played out at 170bpm. Enei prefers things strictly dark so when "Count To Ten" starts its militant march it's evident there's no escape. Abstract, tribal and earth-shatteringly heavy, DRS whips up the mood with agile aggression. Two tracks, two worlds. Choose carefully.

Review: For those who love Phace, and there are plenty of us out there, "Shape The Random" has been a long-awaited fourth full length LP and despite his relentless and prolific output, the energy and progression of sounds emanating from his Hamburg lab continues to surprise. Of course it's a masterclass in neurofunk, the man's a paid-up member of that club, however the most exciting thing about this album is his experimentation with more beefy, rhythmic forms of drum and bass too. Adding more meat to voracious techy rollers can only be a good thing. Do yourself a favour - get immersed in the madness.

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: Breakbeat Paradise instigate another funk quest... But if you follow them for more than a minute you'll know the funk never left them. Label founder Badboe takes the lead, working a Bussa Bus vocal over a warm upbeat summer jam groove. Father Funk follows with a Natisni vocal and a '70s-style Lalo Schifrin OST groove. Dig deeper for piano-pumping diva-driven soul on Timothy Wisdom's "Bad Mother" and a superior EP-closing ode to Grand Puba via Tom Showtime. Brought the funk back recently?

Sidestep - (6:48) 121 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: It's been ten years since Michael Reinboth's Compost label launched its Black Label offshoot, initially as a way to release more house and techno. A decade on, the imprint is stronger than ever and over 120 releases deep. This 124th EP draws together the label's past and future, with Compost veteran Rainer Truby joining forces with recent Local Talk graduate, Italian 20-something Corrado Bucci. The two tracks are, predictably, rather sumptuous, with "Step Forward" offering a heartwarming blend of typically Germany deep house groovery and the warm, organic, live elements Truby is so famous for. There's a slight Latin shuffle about the beats on "Sidestep", a pudding-rich exploration of classic US deep house smothered in toasty chords and hazy vocal samples.
