Review: Destination Manchester: Young Guns harness the emergent energy of young Dutta who builds on his two year profile with his biggest EP to date. Balancing a trippy jazz with brutal bass pressure and local MC talent, he's developing a cool signature as tracks like "Questions", "Smoke Clouds" and "Swarm" go in ham on the bass riff before puffing out big smoky 20s jazz rings. Elsewhere "Lightning" follows suit with woozy trumpets and a car-crushing bassline, "Manchestvia" activates the warheads, "Take Me Back A Few Years" is a sweet-talking Omni Trio style roll-out while "Da Style" shuts down the system with basses rolled on the slimy thigh of an alien gangster.

Review: Disco duo Yam Who? know a thing about re-edits, just take a listen to the endless back catalogue of their revered Midnight Riot label. Here they've recruited man about town Amp Fiddler, to rustle up an album's worth of scalpel jobs. There are 11 smooth gems here to groove to, some of our favourites including the meaty, meandering bassline and soulful vocals of "Superficial", the funky feminist clap-along "Steppin' (feat Dames Brown)" and the skippy garagey house anthem, "Funk Is Here To Stay". Sweet sounds.

Review: Now this is how you bring everyone up to speed: Bizzy B and Pugwash's Dream Team return with a roll deep attitude. Saxxon, Bladerunner, Voltage, DJ Hybrid, Gold Dubs and many more muck in to bring the mid-90s Joker-released rollers a touch of turbo for the 2010s. The punch drunk Augustus Pablo-pushing "Walk & Skank", the savage bars of "Public Enemy", the unrefusable offer of "The God Father", the mystical ragga flex of "The Warriors".... It's all there, it's all serious jungle, it's going to floor your crowd. This is important.

Review: Exactly two years since their debut album Desire Paths, Shogun duo Technicolour & Komatic dish up their sophomore and it's even slicker and consistent than the first. With a finely honed signature that's unmistakeably their own, no other act do liquid in this way. From the cloud-bouncing floatation session of "Parallel" and raw string power of "Clockwise" right the way through to the final salvos of the soulful mourns of "Hold On A While" and the halfstep dreaminess of "It Must Be", every track here has a purpose without so much of a hit being chased or a vocal being added for feature's sake. Authentic and unashamedly deep.

Review: Sticky fingers Brazilians Jam Thieves have been tearing up the dance in the last few years with their subgenre-smelting dancefloor-focussed D&B. Misbehaving on the likes of Radius, Serial Killaz, and Hangar, they've found their spiritual home on Hype's Playaz where all styles are welcome as long they make you bounce... Which is exactly what these 10 tracks do. From the wild west whistles and far-out bass bumps on "The Hangman" and the Qanun twanging "Favela Funk" (with the similarly talented hot blooded Portuguese-speaking duo Bass Brothers), Jam Thieves have delivered a straight-up album of dancefloor bruisers and funkers with nothing contrived or written for album's sake. Refreshing.

Review: The moment the quintessential rave synths, rolling breaks and cooing female vocals on album opener "North Winds" hit you, you know Krakota's put together something special. Coming on strong like a young Logistics but with his own soul-flecked signature, Krakota has weight, a strong sense of history and scope. The footwork beats and New York sounding synths on "Turn Of Fate", the big band flourishes of "Powder Coated", the writhing jazz snakery of "Elastic" the horror movie spikes and MC venom of "Weirdos & Creepers". Pick a track, any track, and we guarantee Krakota's smashed it. Hospital don't mess around with artist albums... Here's a perfect reminder why.

Review: Gentrification is quite a thing. East London might be full of middle class types fetishising '60s Brutalist buildings like Goldfinger's Balfron Tower. But original resident, and former Roll Deep MC, Flowdan (aka Marc Veira) has something to say about it too. Veira grow up by this tower and to him it's a 'Disaster Piece' from a grim place rather than a masterpiece. This album is his most personal and over this 12 track 'melodic grime symphony', he opens up about a hard knock life that he (and pals like Tinchy Stryder, Manga and Animai) knows better than most.

Review: Robert Hood's second album as Floorplan sees him hone in on disco, gospel and house influences to create a proper big room collection. As the driving, disco-loop heavy "Spin" and the ridiculously catchy "Music" demonstrate, the Detroit producer has stripped Floorplan of its techno influences. However, this does't mean he has simplified his message; accompanying the religious vocals on "The Heavens & The Earth" is a hypnotic organ riff, the slightly less pious "Good Thang" is a riotous siren-heavy jacker in the Reese tradition, and "He Can Save You", with its dense primal rhythm is reminiscent of Green Velvet as his madcap best. Hood may have chosen God, gospel and disco over the minimal nation, but he still knows how to lead his people onto the dancefloor.

Review: Whoever said that disco was dead was not aware of Dr Packer and his life-restoring scalpel skills. The cover of this eighth installment of edits reveals the good doc and colleagues hard at work resurrecting a giant disco ball and the sonic results can be heard on this mini-album. Highlights include the slinky clap-along, "Somebody Else", the noodle-bass moog boogie of "Xpand Your Mind" and the breaks-laden cocktail grind of "Tropical Jump". Good to hear disco has checked outta hospital and back on the dancefloor in full health.

Review: Munich-based Alkalino (aka Lino Rodrigues) has been delivering top notch re-edits for years now, so there's no chance of him quitting, despite the title of his new series. We've seen the list of his upcoming releases, and these are certainly not his Last Edits. There are quite a few newbies on here, eight to be precise so there's a lot to choose from. Our favourites happen to be the dreamily seductive disco throb of "Body & Soul", the austere mechanics of New Order redux, "How Do I Feel" and the low slung driving space disco of "We Got It".

Review: Such has been the rise of Marquis Hawkes in recent times that this debut album must mark as one of the most anticipated house sets of 2016. Happily, Social Housing is a superb showcase not only for Hawkes' talents, but also his understanding of house music in its' many myriad forms. The album does include, of course, a sprinkling of jackin' workouts, but these are outnumbered by such thrilling chunks of loved-up positivity as the Tiger & Woods style loop funk of "Fantasy", the Theo Parrish-ish jazz fuzziness of "Summer Memory", and the cheeky, Todd Edwards style cut-up garage of "Something In Yr Head" [sic]. The album's most potent moment, though, is "I'm So Glad", a collaboration with Jocelyn Brown that already ranks among 2016's most potent tunes.

Review: Dave Allison's Kinjo Music has been in business for 10 years now and what a fitting time to release a compilation of his greatest hits (and near misses) in the form of the Coastal Grooves LP. It's 14 cuts of disco and deep house goodness to soundtrack anyone's perfect summer; who'd have thought this bloke's from Montreal, eh! We knew he could knock out a brilliant edit, but he's pretty decent on the remixes too. Highlights include his smooth and funky rendition of Jorge Montiel & Juan Laya's "Got To Be Music", his ultra-deep take on Los Charly's Orchestra's "Everlasting Love" and his downright groovy and uplifting vision of Faze Action's "Freak For Your Love".

Review: Man Recordings head honcho Daniel Haaksman presents the African Fabrics LP. For the 11 tracks on here, Haaksman said he re-created internet and street market finds with current bass music styles, fuelled by the global melting pot of the internet in which genres hybridise and new sounds emerge. You can hear afro, footwork, minimal marimba house or even a two-step bass track paired with a kalimba. Haaksman is no stranger to exotic music: many years ago when he first discovered the emerging bass heavy sounds coming out of Brazil's favelas, he named it 'Baile-Funk' a name that still sticks today, so you can trust the DJ on this one. Guests on the album include Spoek Mathambo label mainstay Stefan Morth aka KU BO, Portuguese trio Throes + The Shine, Dama Do Bling and Alcindah.

Review: Having already followed up his debut EP with a full-length collection of "ill advised edits and reworks" (May's Heads), rising re-edit star Sam Palmer drops a second compilation of tasty sample work. The 12 tracks that make up Legs are pleasingly varied, veering from the baked, head-nodding slo-mo disco-house of "Breakin' Out", to the sleazy, late night disco bounce of "Cool Cold Claudia", via the Clav-happy soul sweetness of "Someday I'll Be A Player", and the hard-wired disco-funk heaviness of "Rhythm Slaves (Dub)". He also finds space for a chunk of disco-reggae-goes-acid (the skanking "Selecta-ta-ta-ta") and the high-octane disco grooves and fluttering flute solos of "Queen of Heaven".

Review: Halifax heavyweight Emperor finally unleashes the long-awaited beast that is his debut album and it's 50 shades of awesome. Rather than dish out a collection of the dark, tearing bangers he's become known for, he's licked up an all-armed hurricane of sounds and ideas; from the pixelated lift-off of "I Was" to the sweaty Upbeats drums of "Shapeshift" to the big breezy vocal drama of "Dispositions" and the rolling soul of "Thunder", this is a whole new creative level from Emperor as he plays by rules we've never heard him play by before. A proper album.

Review: From Cuba, Mala heads south for another mystic adventure in international cross-pollination on Mirrors, the Deep Medi man's latest LP-length bubbler for Brownswood. Fusing inspirations, energies, talents and techniques from Peru - and working with some of the country's most respected musicians - it's another immersive body of work that genuinely sounds like no other. From the pensive tribal march of "Cusco Street Scene" to the shimmering twangs and dusty, languid claps of "Zapateo" by way of demented insistency of "Looney" and the muddy cosmic textures of "The Calling", Mala has once again immersed himself so deeply into a culture and musical discourse that he not only speaks it fluently but has added to its rich vernacular. Vinyl was invented for albums like this.

Review: Amsterdam-based Italian Marco Antonio Spaventi has been one of M>O>S Recordings' most reliable artists over the last three years, delivering a string of fine 12" singles for the acclaimed label. It's perhaps fitting, then, that his latest album - the Rome-born analogue obsessive's second in total - should come out on the Dutch imprint. Predictably, it's a hugely enjoyable set, with Spaventi utilizing a range of vintage synthesizers and drum machines on a series of explorations of classic deep house, Motor City techno, and the grey areas in between. Highlights include, but are not limited to, the deep space shuffle of "Luna Piena", the rising, piano-laden snappiness of "Titanic Moments", and the deep house/techno fusion of the wonderfully warm and hazy "Missing Sunlight".

Review: After what feels like an eternity of samplers and social media teasers, Metalheadz drop Survival & Script's debut Scar album.... And the wait has been completely worth it. Ranging from space-aged halftime grime ("Your Mistake") to incredible vocal-laced drum drama ("Renegade Kicks") by way of 23rd century cosmic soul ("Temptation") and straight-up gritty steppers ("Fractions"), skippy breaks ("The Rocket") and jazzy, funkier workouts ("You Were Here Again"), this completely compounds all the duo's successes so far and puts them on a much wider map. A serious album with depth, dynamics and soul. D&B albums like this don't come round very often...

Review: There's been a gaping hole in the world of cheeky mash up scamps since Australian melodic breaks hero DJ Axe entered radio silence a couple of years ago. Now he has chosen to re-establish his party boogie transmissions through the medium of an LP called City Funk. There are 14 new works to ingest; enough to provide sustenance to a millions house parties for years to come. Highlights include the sunny go-go influenced title track, the blissful cascading synth funk of "Bells" and the totally cool vintage breakdance joy of "Push 'Em Up".

Review: Welcome to the mid-2000s. A few years before Jalapeno took him on and developed him into the nu-funk guru he is today, but after he'd scored international kudos by syncing to an Apple advert "Channel Surfing", Featurecast was one of the biggest bootleg barons on the scene. 21st century big-beat and turbo-hip-hop, Goodgroove released some of the cheekiest sample-heavy tunes of his early career. And here they are in all their remastered glory. Highlights include the Wild Cherry sampling bootie shaker "Funky White Brother" and the Vandross-DMX love-in "Get It On The Floor". If you weren't around the first time, now's your chance to catch up.

Review: Dom Tarasek aka Commodo has already appeared on perhaps the biggest dubstep labels around, and he made his name from the string of releases on Mala's Deep Medi Muzik - not exactly a bad place to start your career, that's for sure. However, he's now branching out to other quality households, and this new LP on Black Acre feels just right in every single way. Right because his deep, brooding sound fits ever so well with the rest of the label, and right because How What Time flows perfectly as an album unit. There are three tunes on each side of the two slabs of wav, and they work as perfect, tidy trios that carry the same sort of leftward bass sound, one that never goes to deep as to become abstract, but also never gets too violent as to become silly. All in all, it is masterfully executed dubstep for the 2016 palate. Killer.

Review: Unless you've been asleep since March or you've accidentally found this review while looking up an old school mate who happens to be called Richie (or Richard) Brains then you'll know EXIT played this mystery out in style. We all had suspicions on his identity but not even the biggest forum nerd could guess that it's actually Alix Perez, Chimpo, Fixate, Fracture, Om Unit, Sam Binga and Stray. Seven men, each one decorated and respected, their skills culminating in a body of work that's part funk ("Game Shades"), part Carptenarian cinematica ("Sk8 M8") part woozy, wonky halftime ("The Blips") part grime ("Bring Dat Back") part D&B beauty ("Voyage") and all gully. It's going to be hard to find a release more deserving of the title 'album of the year' this year.

Review: Africa Seven continue their rich vein of releases this year with an indepth exploration of the Tala A.M. discography. Those unfamiliar with the Cameroonian's story will be shaken by the adversity he lived through before going on to enjoy a successful music career; blindness and the death of both parents afflicted him as a child. However Tala Andre Marie's love of music was his guiding light, as was Cameroonian icon Manu Dibango who helped him relocate to Paris and thus began a recording career consisting of no less than 13 albums! African Funk Experimentals 1975 To 1978 sees Africa Seven dip into the Tala AM archives for a ten track presentation of his funkiest cuts during the early years of recording for the Fiesta label. "Hot Koki" is a particular treat, whilst disco selectors will love "Sugar Lump".

Review: DJ Kaos doesn't put out many re-edits these days, but when he does, they're invariably superb. This seven-track set of fresh reworks contains some of his finest scalpel work to date. The headline attraction is undoubtedly "Midnight Patrol", a brilliant rearrangement of the Valverde Brothers' 1978 disco cover of JJ Cale's "After Midnight" that makes much of the winding synth solos and gospel backing vocals. There's plenty of other killer material throughout, though, from the synth-laden cosmic disco throb of "Stranger", and 135 BPM tropical drum workout "Ocean Rhythms", to the '70s rock surge of "Psychedelic Supermarket" (a tasty re-cut of The Who favourite "Eminence Front"). All killer, no filler.

Review: Lisbon ghetto veteran, the kuduro kid, the shadowy man like DJ NK finally delivers his debut album. And it's every bit as sweaty, chaotic, hypnotic and rule-free as you'd expect or want it to be: the insistent mechanical scratches and whirrs of "Ghetto Sound Of Lisbon", the tripped out drum frenzy of "Zuguza", the almost oriental scales on the percussive riff of "Tribalistic Face" the carnivalian hand-drum density of "Caipirinha", the list goes on. Yet another frank and forthright document from the consistently innovative Lisbon collective.

Review: Thou shalt covet thine mysterious Fiend as he steps up to Dubtribu with his debut album Seven Deadly Dubs. Digging deep into the roots of dubstep and what the dynamics truly mean, each track takes us back to the earliest incarnations of the genre with pensive, meditative weight, flow and arrangements. Highlights include the soft-but-firm doubled kick pummels of "Chernobyl", the organic drum rattles and weaves of "Devil's Lettuce", the pneumatic mechanical drum funk of "Wrath" and the deep space soul of "Venus". Thou shalt not sleep on this.
