Review: Sly's latest project has got every mandem and his dog talking. Releasing on the label he co-owns with Pacso and still under the superb guidance of Urban Agency (the guys who take care of none other than Original Sin, Taxman and Tyke no less), it's fair to say this is a big one. Bang in the middle of jump up and super-rhythmic drum and bass, there's a lot to shout about. Lead track "Hands Up" is an undeniable crowdpleaser, the heavier sounds rip out further along the tracklist. Get your hands on this as a late summer necessity.

Review: Valique once more dons his popular V's Edits guise for another trip into Balearic rework territory. This 18th installment in the long-running series has a "neo-blues" theme, offering the former funk breaks man a chance to deliver suitably dancefloor-friendly interpretations of cuts by Muddy Waters, BB King, The Doors and Rodriguez (a tasty re-arrangement of the 'Sugar Man's "Can't Get Away"). Interestingly, he also turns Dire Straits' radio-friendly, solo-heavy "Sultans of Swing" into a loose, tech-influenced house jam. Elsewhere, look out for a house-goes-breaks-goes-Balearic take on "Horse With No Name" (here titled "Has The Name"), and the bluesy powder house flex of "Daymallah".

Review: There's no denying Funk Fusion definitely live up to their name; take these first two tracks which sample and flip Kool & The Gang and Tribe Called Quest numbers into something new and different for 2015. There's also a cheeky garage remake of Basement Jaxx, and for something slower check out the hip hop throw down of Aretha Franklin's "Say A little Prayer For You" by KMT. And have you heard Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" pitched against Sean Paul lyrics? Well you have now. Something for everyone.

Review: It's time to raise a glass of something cold, fizzy and boozy to the long-running G.A.M.M imprint, which celebrates a century of releases with a trio of new disco-era Michael Jackson reworks from regular contributors Moplen and The Reflex. As usual, The Reflex hits the spot, playing around with the original parts to deliver a punchy, floor-friendly extension of Off The Wall cut "Burn This Disco Out" that sounds like some mythical, long lost Tom Moulton remix. Moplen weighs in with two versions of Jacksons' banger "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)"; a DJ-friendly effort that begins with easily mixable grooves, and a superior, mostly instrumental 'Remix' that builds up masterfully via a sumptuous, orchestral intro.

Review: Ever the bastion of modern drum & bass from the smooth and liquid to the rough and ready, Hospital have decided to take stock with a bumper pack of classics, some of which have been remastered for the occasion. Logistics spells it out by kicking things off with the hyped up energy of "Jungle Music", while Danny Byrd brings a cosmic effervescence with "Amen Alley". All the label regulars are here with some bona fide gems from the vaults, whether it be London Elektricity or High Contrast on the buttons. Whatever the case, for newcomers to the label or those needing a refresher, this is a perfect one-stop hit of uptempo breakbeat mayhem from a British institution.

Review: Not just one of drum & bass's most iconic female vocalists, but also one of the most respected... Riya's work behind the scenes goes back around 15 years. As a result she's got serious reference points, a genuine understanding of proper drum & bass and a really impressive debut album that features some of the best names in D&B. Ranging from the sci-fi soars and twinkling synths of "Misunderstanding" to the out-and-out gutter slaps of "Piece Of Me" via the soul jazz jungle lushness of "Don't You Know" and the already massive lighter-raiser "As Soon As". Released at a time when a lot of female features are popping up in D&B for all the wrong reasons, Riya is the real deal... And so is this album.

Review: In:Flux Audio open their first Get Fluxed compilation with the ludicrous bounce of Swedger's "Shellsuit Temptress", and it gets even sillier with the tinges of electro-swing in 1Point5's "Villian". There are more streamlined, deeper passages though, like Pavv's remix of "Hold Up" (neat vocal samples to boot) to Prude Lerude's "I Need Your Love". For beats more stripped and torn check Ramage's "Happy Days" and the Samphet's "Badman", but the best old school UKG flavours come through on Gammy and Mr LA productions. UK garage never sounded so 2015.

Elsewhere Jay Airiness brings some Italo-space disco to the table with "Sunshine Grooves and "Public Transit" is slick cocktail-house at its finest.

Review: Another week, another new set of high grade re-edits from the Midnight Riot label. This time round, label boss Yam Who hands a debut to Stafford-based Dave Gerrard and Rob Bairstow's Greyskooledits project. Predictably, they head straight for peaktime dancefloors with opener "Saving My Love In", a brilliantly cut-up, hustlin' rework of a well-known disco classic. They dip the tempo a little on "Hesitate", impeccably stretching out and tweaking Salsoul Orchestra's "Runaway" for modern dancefloors. Even better is "Definite Strangeness", a brilliantly dubbed-out, beatbox electro tweak of Barbara Mason's "Another Man", while "Who Do You Think You Are" sees the duo brilliantly chop-up funk classic "Mr Big Stuff" in a vintage hip-hop breaks style.

Review: As Eli Escobar let's it be known in "The Formula" that he's 'got something for you' as the sweet chorale chimes. There's a subtle Osunlade vibe to this album, the American's first, and Rhodes be flaying on "Visions" as they vamp to a climax like a Bootsy Collins solo. It's all stripped back business of "NY So Hi" - get down to this! And for some quality, sustained loops check out "Thank You Les". "Up All Night" is a dubbed-out, cool-as, disco-tinged burner and there's a whole load to discover here in a debut album rich with the type of soul you can only get from the streets of the big apple.

Review: George Kelly AKA DJ Butcher - a fine Greek purveyour of soul, funk and boogie edits - is back with another collection of block rocking beats. No guessing who he samples on "Slim Shaddy" over a low slung funk groove. "Happy Moog" goes funky house, utilising that Pino D'Angio sample, and damn well. "You Dont Stop" is a good re-edit of Tom Tom Clubs "Wordy Rappinghood", "Need Some" is a hi-HRG version of "Hot Stuff" and if that wasn't enough, "Black Jeans" is a cheeky remix of you guessed it; Billy Jean by MJ. This collection of hot tracks are all you need for the next hoe down!

Played by: 80's Child
Review: Following hot on the heels from outings on 1978 Music Co, Logical and La Talacha, Lemon Mint transfers to Hotbox Recordings for his latest trip into hazy, disco-sampling deep house territory. He smartly explores different moods and tempos across the six original tracks, from the paring horns, woozy loops and head-nodding bump of opener "Just Like You", to the beachside bump and glistening guitars of "Maximino", the EP's most up-tempo moment. Highlights are pleasingly plentiful, with the '80s house-goes-Latin bliss of "Esmerelda" standing out. There's also a tasty bonus in the shape of a Funk District remix of "Just Like You", which somehow manages to make the groovy original even sunnier.

There's some sampled Wu Tang thrown in among a clamour of drums in "Shimmy Cumbia", while tempos are lowered in "Lift Ma Soul". For some electro-swing vibes check out "Golden Boy" and get tropical on "Real Smooth". Consider your next fiesta sorted!

Review: Powerful sonic slappage from Brighton badman Jook. Sitting somewhere between grime, dubstep and tech funk, all three cuts live to up the Certified Banger status. "Lean Back" is all about the tightly cut stabs that wrap themselves around the stop/start kicks and snares, "Alarmed" is all about the wobbles and is just waiting for a fiery flow of MC damage while "Lucy" shows us Jook's softer, star-gazing side thanks to velvet arpeggios and some really interesting sample textures buried deep among the beats.

Review: D Minus presents us with Hoes on Death By Bass recordings. Offended yet? If not; read on. Four nasty nasty darkside techsteppers on offer here. Obviously the affectionately titled title track with its vocoded vocals and tightly programmed beat that slaps you in the face. "West Side Grade" offers more of the same but its bassline is a right grating one! On "Sledgehammer" Traumatik proudly proclaims "I love my Cannabis/if you don't like me/drink a can of piss", right then. Finally "Another Planet" hammers the message home, a true stepper with attitude.

Sunshine skankers unite.

Cyclops (Fingerman Slo-Grind rework) - (9:19) 106 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Amsterdam-based producer Olivier Boogie doesn't put out many EPs, but what he does release is usually superb. Certainly, his previous edit-heavy 12" singles on Whiskey Disco and Lumberjacks in Hell were top notch. This debut for Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint is white hot, too. Opener "Switch" delivers chunky, loop-heavy thrills in his usual disco/house fusion style, with hooky piano lines and choice vocal samples riding a sturdy, cut-up groove. There's a looser, more reverential tone about the humid, horn-heavy South American disco vibes of "Funky Tropical", while "Cyclops" and "Ooh La La" explore deeper - if not less floor-friendly - territory. Fingerman offers his own take on two of the tracks, with the eyes-close slow house flex of his "Slo-Grind" rework of "Cyclops" standing out.

Review: Current darlings of the deep house Wolf Music continue on with what they do best on these three reliable dancefloor fillers courtesy of Bristol's Thrilogy. First up "Heaven" and its uplifting piano roll complete with jazz vocals and a pumping swing fuelled beat does the business quite well. Next we've got "Hold Me In Your Arms" which takes things deeper, with sultry female backing vocals and rolling bassline.. But the uplifting piano roll remains; don't worry! Lastly the K 98 remix of "heaven" injects some serious stomp and tempo into the track that tears through the speakers with its hard house intensity.

from $1.49
Review: Disco/house fusionist P-Sol has long since established himself amongst the higher echelons of the re-edit community, with releases to his name on such labels as Hot Digits, FKR, Editorial, DiscoDat, and Masterworks Music. Here he pops up on Rebel Hearts with another trio of tried-and-tested reworks. The Brooklyn-based producer begins with "Take It Off", a smooth, low-slung disco-funk bumper that sounds like a blazed take on Soundstream. There's more of a celebratory feel to the filter-heavy bounce of "Going Way Back", an impressive re-imagining of Odyssey's "Going Back To My Roots" that focuses on short, lesser-known excerpts of the 12" version. Finally, he returns to disco-funk for a heavyweight re-interpretation of "Bus Stop" - entitled "Don't Stop" - that makes great use of the original organ solos.

Review: Veteran Italian DJ/producer Kiu D has enjoyed an eclectic career, producing D&B, nu-jazz, house and dubstep before turning to funk and disco re-edits. Here, he delivers more of the latter for Hotbox Boogie, building on the success of previous releases for Masterworks Music and Special Edition. He kicks things off with "Looking Good", a sparkling chunk of straightened out '70s funk madness, before the World of boogie-era proto house on "Don't Mind" and "Splendid Idea" (the latter boasting delicious jazz guitar and vibraphone solos). Elsewhere, check the rolling disco-funk warmth of "Bad Idea" and the bass-heavy romp of Groovemarket hook-up "House Party".

There are nine bangers featured here, all promising 'hard 4x4 beats mashed with twisted basslines'. They're not wrong either: highlights include label stalwart Dr Cryptic's pounding garage-step sing-a-long "Dirty Dot", the doomily orchestrated wobbler "Marching Powder" by Sekt 87 and the menacing speed garage of "Rude" by Little Mesters.

Review: With his love of rolling disco basslines, deep house-influenced Rhodes chords, chunky grooves and Balearic influences, Ilija Rudman is one of nu-disco's most consistently on-point productions. Further proof of his talents can be found on this third outing on ISM Records. Both the warm and breezy "Future Times" and faster "Dimensions" are classic Rudman, with the latter sounding like Prince jamming with the Idjut Boys. Crazy P man Chris 'Hot Toddy' Todd delivers a typically smooth, fluid and musically rich remix of "Future Times" in his deep house-meets-nu disco style, while Simon Tappenden dons his Ourra guise to deliver a wonderfully tactile, authentic sounding '80s boogie rework of the same track. It's this version that really steals the show.

They bring City Flow together and they show off what's yet to come for the next year. Soul Intent, T>I and Supreme Being all make appearances, but it's the surprising new upstarts you want to listen out for. Expect very big things.

Review: Oh boy... Last time these two roustabouts collided in the studio "Mythos" happened... And became one of the biggest D&B tracks of 2013. Expectations have been set high since both parties teased us earlier this year. And thankfully we've not been let down; "Footpath" (which also features the perennial Kiwis The Upbeats) is a savage roller that sounds like live electricity lashing out of your speakers. "Leibniz" takes us deeper into the neuro badlands with full emphasis on the undulating bassline and strange textured loop. One for the build-up, one for the pay-off... Insideinfo and Mefjus never disappoint.

Review: The latest curator of the esteemed series of groovy re-edits is none other than rising star, Ree Keen. There's four reworks featured here, all of which perfectly capture the noted diversity of his influences. Opener "Blue Devils" is all bluesy looped nonchalance, "Smooth Changes" is a party ragtime jaunt through Annie-style musical swing. "Horny Me Swing" is a mash-up of Mousse T and big band jive that's as improbable as it sounds and "Paper Bossa Loser" fuses vintage Beck with chiming, sunkissed bossa nova. It shouldn't work, but it does!

Review: Reflective of the atmosphere that prevails at party organisers All Day I Dream's daytime events, this collection eschews mushy ambience and plodding deep house in favour of a more sophisticated, adventurous selection. Powel's "Hor" is all abstract percussion and soothing melodies, while Lauren Ritter's "Glass Hours" is a sublime deep techno groove, brittle, beautiful and reminiscent of artists like As One. Meanwhile, Bedouin's "Flight of Birds" sees the compilation veer into mystical territories with wonderfully evocative fiddle playing unraveling over a pulsing groove and bongo drums. On Summer Compilation, All Day I Dream show that down-tempo dance music need not be synonymous with birdsong and dull sax solos.

Way Back Home (Fouk remix) - (6:25) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It's now been 12 years since Kraak & Smaak's debut release. Their trademark party-friendly sound has matured much since then, as this rich and evocative vocal cut aptly demonstrates. Utilising their now usual live instrumentation, "Way Back Home" sits somewhere between classic vocal house and electrofunk-influenced deep house, with lashings of clipped funk guitars thrown in for good measure. Fouk provide the accompanying remix, opting to turn the track into a woozy, deep disco shuffler via emphasized breakdowns and yearning chords. If you're looking for something a bit sweatier, bonus track "Seb's Party" delivers just the right balance between basement house revivalism, starlight disco and Detroit Swindle style deep house.

Next up is PBR Streetgang from Leeds doing their thing with a nice journey via a progressive house sound on "Suel Baril". There's also local Bristolian Lukas doing more of his low slung slo mo disco business and Phil Gerus with "Never Coming Back".

Review: For those in the know on the bassline scene, Welsh DJ Jay Robinson has been a hot name to watch for a while now. Always fine-tuning his brand of doomy bass heavy house, his latest single, 1987 has already picked up support from the likes of My Nu Leng, Shadow Child, Toddla T and Herve. "Carnage" and "Guttural" kick things off with vintage samples and bouncy bass, "Throwback" is all about the epic breakdowns, the deep and nasty "Shutdown" is an EP highlight and "The End" fuses dubstep and hip-hop to devastating effect

The Optimistic Voyeur - (8:30) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.04
Review: Following outings on Popular People's Front and Whiskey Disco, Rhythm Plate man Ant Plate brings his YSE Saint Laur'ant alias to Editorial for the first time. As you might expect from a man of his experience, the quality threshold is high, and the source material obscure. He opens with the low-slung, Japanese-influenced, Tom Tom Club style disco-funk of "Bow Legged Robot", before taking things up a notch with the classic disco groove, tight horns and swirling strings of "Keep In Step". There's more classic strings and eyes-closed builds to be found on the superb "When Are You Gonna Land", which benefits greatly from a killer percussive break midway through. Finally, he serves up a delicious chunk of summery jazz-funk/disco fusion on the decidedly breezy, Brazilian sounding closer "The Optimistic Voyeur".

Free Bass (Shield & Corrado Bucci re-edit) - (6:11) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: With its' live-sounding disco beats, killer bass guitar parts and nagging clavinet hooks, Joey Negro's Funk Equation mix of new single "Free Bass" sounds a little like the retro-futurist brilliance of forgotten French producer Blackjoy. While tight and rolling enough for house sets, it's effectively a "proper" disco record - albeit one with more than a hint of delay-heavy psychedelia amongst the cheery clav lines and killer bass. Shield and Corrado Bucci provide a tasty "re-edit" on the virtual flipside, adding long, drawn out chords and additional percussion for neat deep house-meets-classic disco feel. Both tracks are tailor-made for peak time sets.

Review: Editorial Records have been delivering top selling 'slo-mo disco and deep grooves...from around the globe' since 2009. Here they keep the heat on with a new summer-friendly compilation, Golden Grooves. There are 15 choice cuts here, all of which employ a formula of providing a mellow house frame on which to hang some filtered vintage samples. Highlights include the serpentine bassline of Matt Hughes' cocktail-houser "Rodeo Warrior", the Minnie Ripperton-with-a-backbeat haze of "The Spirit" by The Groovers and the spacey hiNRG disco of "Body Heat".

Review: Break's third album Simpler Times is rapidly en route. And here's another sampler to stop us all from getting on a train to Bristol and camping outside his house until the full deal is released. "Free Your Mind" opens with a lush reggae feel, very much like his "Love So True" anthem a few years back. Complete with the unfailing dulcets of Fats, it's totally spotless and highly soulful. Looking for some new dirty? Look no further; "Brand New" is another textbook slab from Break's darker pantry; a waspy bassline, interesting rhythm sounds and a groove so thick and deep you could stash an elephant in it... No one does D&B quite like Break.

The title track "Figure Of Speech" is a pleasant, beautifully Detroitified house swayer featuring some heavy chord action, and "Victoria's Secret" adds a further layer of beat-swing around cheery melodies for the summer haze. Flip the disc and you got "Live At The Cosmic Carnival", a disco-fuelled house anthem and another floor-filler to fill Swindle's ever-impressive catalogue.

Review: A firm face on the Disco Cakes roster now, HZ returns to Deekline's imprint with another clutch of savage-but-sweet shake-ups. "Deepa Underground" takes Jamiroquai into glitch city town square and whip them repeatedly until they do their best performance. "Boot Me Down" takes Nancy Sinatra down to the Atlanta ghetto and shows her the murky side of trap life. The real highlight, though, is the turbo-charged, go-faster-striped twist on Eminem and Nate Dogg's "Shake Dat". Maintaining the flow and funk of the original with peaktime dynamics, it goes way beyond the standard bootleg formula most Eminem bootlegs suffer in this game.

Review: Two months have passed since their inaugural volume and Beatnik City return with another chop-walloping, swash-buckling party frenzy. Their emphasis remains fully focused on the big beat vibe as each of the contributors boil down myriad genres from blues to rock to roots to classic b-boy hip-hop and recode them around swinging mid tempo breakbeats. Each cut will massage any gathering you perform to, but stand out cuts include The Captain's Toots-tweaked skank-slammer "Feel Alright", the slower, almost Todd Terje style blues stomp of "Beatbox Baby" and the unabashed sing-along feels of Rory Hoy's "Runaway Again". Unfettered booty business aimed directly at the cheeriest parties.
