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: Let Serial Killaz send their years of experience your way in the form of Turno, a man who's been cracking skulls and making waves for a few years but is only now starting to get the respect he deserves. Working with a few carefully chosen peers on this full-length release, expect bass that batters through like a freight train, snares that break teeth and ingenious sampling that leaves the nightmarish result to your imagination. Be careful - once tunes like "Bounty Killa" are in your head, you're done for.

Review: Thirty Three nuggets of serious UKG gullyness; Project Allout have already developed a serious reputation for generous dispatches, but this is whole new level. Uniting their many lengmen for a deep exploration of the pastures between bassline house, instrumental grime and the broader realms of bass music, every area is covered. Highlights include the eski angst of Chemist RNS' "Stare", the violin-snapping, post-dubstep darkness of Deadbeat UK's "Graveyard", the outrageous VIP muscles of Hoax and Dubzta's "Twilight Zone" and the sassy vocal flexery of Pavv's "You Got Me". This is just the tip of the bassline iceberg, though. Dig deep and grab your own lenger; there are enough here for everyone.

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: Time for a remix tip from Navigator as "Sound The Alarm" gets a working from some Liondub heavyweights. From the monster hench Serum remix to Lost City's dancehall wind and grind, and Brian Brainstorm's frisky, jump up interpretation, it's fair to say there's more than one way to bake a Navigator classic. Heavy ragga vibes with a focus on those battle cry vocals in Sticky Joe's remix is definitely one to look out for. Heavy.

The Optimistic Voyeur - (8:30) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.07
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".

Review: Hampshire-based Groove Motion - AKA DJ/production duo Wayne Altham and Jack Henwood - describe their style as "bangin' soulful music". Certainly, there's plenty of soul to be found throughout this debut release for Midnight Riot. Throughout, they impeccably blur the boundaries between re-edits, remixes and original productions, delivering new takes on classic tracks with plenty of cool musical flourishes. Check, for example, the deliciously evocative piano solos on their breezy house version of The Jones Girls' "Nights Over Egypt" (here renamed "To The Music"), or the sparkling guitars and tactile chords of Sade re-cut "Nothing Can". There's also a cheery, sun-flecked goodness to "So Good To Me", their house-friendly version of Donald Byrd's Paradise Garage classic "Love Has Come Around".

Review: The UK's Pelikann glides mightily high on the nu-dubstep waves these days, and he's landed firmly on the Saucy clan's catalogue with a fluttering blend of percussion-driven squelchers. "Wolf" is a sludgy, four-to-the-floor monster with plenty of wobbles and grizzly low-ends, and backed by Hywel's more stripped-back version. "Hear Me" is, of course, dark and menacing, and filled with horsepower, but the groove is leaner than its predecessor, leaving the club slashings up to the remixer, Distro. The aptly named "Fak Off" ties things off with deep bursts of power drums and bass stabs, followed by Grande's housier version of the original. Mean.

Review: The scalpel wielding edit doctor from down under, Dr Packer, returns to practice some more reworking of summer-ready jams on the Smooth Operator EP. There are five new surgeries this time; the synth heavy "Shared Nights", a slow 'n' low Balearic rework "Heaven In The Ghetto", and the elastic band funk of "Ya Don't Stop". Fingerman pops up too to remix with a precision remake op "Block Party Disco Dub".

Review: Fresh Calibre - is there a finer thing? And in this disappointing summer of damp barbeques and dead beer gardens, there's nothing we all needed more right now than this, a quadruple helping of thick-bassed freakiness. Kicking off with "Bogeyman Bullshit" for some deep bass wobbling, "Smother" gathers the techy nuances of Marcus Intalex and Bricktop and "Multi-Tasking" bangs and whomps its way through hard stepping kicks and rolling snares. Final tune "Dream Of You" brings in vintage dub heaviness alongside retro synths for a seriously deep slice of originality. Serious banger!

Review: Daniel Leseman and Hans 'Junktion' Peeman first joined forces under the Fouk moniker late last year, delivering an impressive debut EP, First Things First, that skillfully combined the former's jazz-tinged rhythms with the latter's smooth deep house nous. There are plenty more reasons to be cheerful on this debut for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings imprint, not least the driving bass, jaunty jazz samples and warm chords of "Kill Frenzy". There's even more soul present on the loose house beats, glassy-eyed vocal samples and rich textures of "Leftys Bar", while "Ken Sent Me Release" is as woozy, wavy and dreamy as you'd expect. Soothing stuff, all told.

Review: Not content with providing us with the tune of summer 14 - the Mood Hut released "Something (On My Mind)" - Jack Jutson has only gone and done it again on his Future Times debut. "Thirstin" is every bit as likeable as its' esteemed predecessor, delivering a subtly sun-kissed blend of loose, delay-laden deep house percussion, rich Rhodes chords and yearning vocals. Truly, it's magical - the kind of warm, evocative fare that will still be getting rotations decades from now. "Atmosphere", an instrumental cut built around jazzy drums, live disco bass and brilliant eyes-closed piano solos, is almost as good. Clearly, the Pender Street Steppers man is one serious talent.

Here he delivers four more cuts, you know, the ones that sound like silly o'clock joy at the Paradise Garage - the loose, Fender Rhodes back beat shuffle of "Go Get The Money", the sparkly tingles of spacey funker "Double Journee", the slappy raunch-bass of "Hold On Me" and the New York in the bad old days electro-funk joint "Gigolo". The real deal.

Next up is "So Damn Tuff" which lives up to its name, a collaboration with Bryan V which takes on more of a jump style of with its funky and catchy bassline that would make legends like Mickey Finn take notice.

Review: 2015 is fast turning into Henry Wu's year. Having already delivered killer release of baked deep house/instrumental hip-hop fusion for Ho-Tep and Odd Socks, he now pops up on Rhythm Section International with another brilliant EP. While as deep and blazed as previous excursions, there's a sun-bright freshness to the pleasingly varied selections on offer. Contrast, for example, the deep space, boogie-house slickness of "Yellow Brick", the bruk revivalism of "Neezy (Wok)" - think I.G Culture after a few too many bongs) - and the brilliant deep house/jazz-funk fusion of "Dubplate Special". Arguably best of all, though, is the Latin jazz-goes-deep house warmth of "Croydon Depot". Everyone will have a different personal favourite, though; it's that kind of EP.

Review: Aroop delivers the third instalment of his "Brazil Breakdown" series with three of his floor-fired reworks to date. "Brilhantina" is a percussion-heavy slice of four-to-the-floor soul with synths straight out of the Detroit playbook. "Quem Vai Querer" ups the ante with a juicy bottom end (think mid 00's Yam Who), feel-good chants and a conga roll so hypnotic you'll be shaking your hips for hours. Finally we hit "O Mestre"; rich in warm reverbed synths and coated with a pristine-polished 80s soul vocal, this will work well on both sides of the night. Honey coated warm up or an emotional finale.

Review: Amsterdam's Detroit Swindle duo pair up and land back on Jimpster's Freerange imprint...and you know that means swinging, dusty house grooves for all! 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: Anile's exclusive signing to Med School remains a very big deal. Allowing his sound to continue growing under the nurturing alt-drum and bass wings of Hospital Records' nerdy, slightly emotional sister label, you could argue there's never been a better place for him. With his intellectual beats come deep rhythms and thundering bass, taking inspiration not just from his ambient-influenced peers but from the heavier, dubbier junglists of the past. A momentous release from an artist who's only just stepping into his prime.

Review: Ever since his release on Goldie's larger-than-life Metalheadz stable, Jim Coles aka OM Unit has truly impressed us with his singular spin on minimal drum and bass. His latest tunes comes courtesy of Cosmic Bridge, a label he's already released plenty of music on, and the five tunes are representative of his many skills and guises behind the mixing desk. From the bumpy, off-gilter breaks of "Wagonist Riddim", to the faster and meaner swagger of "Spiritwerk", or the downtempo beat coils of "Demons Out", Coles' soundsare both cinematic and effective on the speakers. Metalheadz legend Digital features on "Midnight Oil", a half-step, neo-jungle banger for the headZ.

New Paradise - (6:50) 119 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Last year, Melbourne's Harvey Sutherland signaled his arrival in emphatic fashion with the acclaimed Brothers EP for Voyage Recordings - a sumptuous, soul-flecked EP of boogie-influenced deep house. Here, he continues to impress with a superb tracks for Dani Plessow's MCDE imprint. "Bermuda" is deliciously warm and summery, with jaunty boogie synths and cascading chords riding a smooth, shuffling deep house groove. "New Paradise" works the same formula hard, with dreamy, held-note chords and bubbly synthesizer melodies wrapping themselves around loose, analogue-sounding percussion and a rich bassline. If there were any doubts about his talents moving forward, this should dispel them. Clearly, Sutherland is here to stay.

Knee On Belly - (6:05) 122 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Ah, it's finally the summer and where would we be without a DJ Koze record to accompany those long, open-air parties? The title track is a lush, string-filled affair that chugs along slowly. It's made all the more trippy by a female vocal whose narrative begins with the claim that 'everyone is experimenting with ecstasy' and who goes on to talk about lies and meditation. If that sounds too cosmic for you, then we recommend that you check out "Knee on Belly". It could be the German artist's version of '90s disco house, but realized against a gentle minimal house backdrop.

Review: A host of collabs take pride of place in this fresh-feeling, summer-tinted release kicking off with Pennygiles and criminally underrated producer Sevin, working together on "I'm Sorry". All rolling bass, soulful vocals and swelling sampled strings. Lovely stuff. Next up Phil Tangent join Penny-g for a dark stepper with a difference, as strangely beguiling vocals move in from the distance over dark bass and contrasting brightness from the synths. It'd be spooky if it wasn't so good. Finally, the one and only tech-master Ed:it comes to see Pennygiles for "Know A Lie", mixing that trademark rolling style effortlessly with his own savage nature. Beautifully done.

Review: Italian upstart Kiu D serves up a three course banquet of high cholesterol edits. For starters we're presented with a heart-attack inducing deep fried platter of greasy synths as Rocker's Revenge's "Walking On Sunshine" gets the full fat treatment. For mains we're served "Disco Brains"; the audio equivalent of a 20oz steak, it has the juiciest, rarest boogie bassline this side of Manhattan. For dessert we're treated to the sweetest of treats as the smooth-yet-unrelenting "Calm Before The Storm" ebbs and flows softly thanks to lavish piano strokes and a peppering of syrupy jazz elements. What a feast. What a debut release.

Review: Aggression and future sounds come from the man like DJ Chap, pushing forward his reign of terror with a hard-hitting collection of bass heavy hellraisers. Don't expect to be overwhelmed by synth and FX though; there's a distinctly minimal sound to tracks like "Emperor" and "Stressed", owing most of their ominous sound the spaces in-between. For the beastly rave-happy sounds you're used to, head to "Homeless Roots Sounds" for extra dubby bass and tight rolling snares.

Review: There's a reason that Midnight Riot's eponymous compilations frequently charge to the top of the Juno Download charts. Put simply, they never disappoint. This ninth installment sticks to the now tried-and-tested formula - house-friendly re-edits and originals from across the disco, boogie, soul and funk spectrum - but predictably hits the spot throughout. As usual, there's a bonus mix - this time put together by globe-trotting scalpel jockey Rayko - and tracks come from both label regulars ('80s Child, Ziggy Phunk, Chewy Funk) and an impressive array of new or unheralded talents. It's in the latter category that you'll find some of the most impressive fare - see Phil Jaimes deliciously Balearic "Nowhere To Hide" and Cosmocomics' kaleidoscopic synth-funk jam "Mary Jane" - though the standard remains pleasingly high throughout.

Review: 15 months on from the release of their superb Body of One full length, Faze Action brothers Robin and Simon Lee have decided to get the album remixed. They start the ball rolling by delivering an '89 style Balearic house dub of "Magic Touch" - all "Good Life" riffs, chopped-up, cowbell-laden percussion and expansive piano solos - before Dicky Trisco weighs in with a more synthesizer-heavy, boogie-inspired re-dub of the same track. Phil Mison reinvents "Echoes of Your Mind" as a drifting Balearic chugger, complete with his own additional guitar, bass and keys, before Emotional emperor Stuart "Chuggy" Leath does his best Dunkelziffer impression via a woozy, fluid and wide-eyed take on "Floating World".

Nokturn (Grand Finale) - (9:28) 130 BPM
from $1.49
Review: With releases on his own Studio Barnhus label and Pampa, Axel Boman is one of the most promising European house producers. He showcases this talent on his latest release for DJ Koze's label; the title track comprises tough, tribal beats and a rolling rhythm, but it also has a warm, fluid bass and expansive chords flows through it. In case there was any lingering doubt about Boman's abilities, he delivers "Nokturn (Grand Finale)". Much faster than the title track, its splintered but insistent percussion, jazzed out stabs and dub effects show that he is one of the most innovative young house artists.

Low-Co - (6:10) 176 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Plenty of soul-searching in this pair of deep rollers from Soul Deep favourite Furney. Fresh sounding and filled with emotive keys, "Rhodeo Drive" itself is a gorgeous piece of soulful drum and bass, with plenty of nods to the old school. "Low-Co" is the bad boy of the pair, ditching shimmering atmospherics for a loose and dirty kick drum and eerie vocal histrionics. Cinematic and imaginative, there's a lot here to take your breath away.

Review: What more can we possibly say about nu-disco producer Valique and his two-year bootleg/edit/mash-up blitzkreig that we haven't already said? Listening back over these 31 offerings it becomes apparent that this is simply the soundtrack to one seriously mighty party. There are simply just so many dancing-on-tables moments here (we'll let him away with some of the shockers) including the grooved up DM cover "Personal Jesus" by Johnny Cash, the surreal, intoxicating deep disco take on Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" and the dreamy paradise melodies of "Still You". Here's to the next couple of years!

The Rainbow Song by Art Of Tones on Local Talk Cue Track
The Rainbow Song (S3A Broken STL remix) - (5:42) 119 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Following a surprise outing on House of Disco, Ludovic Llorca returns to Local Talk for the first time since 2013's much played The Same Thing EP. In its' original form, The Rainbow Song is a near perfect example of Llorca's particular brand of deep house - all stretched-out chords, a bustling bassline, tough but shuffling beats, cute cowbells and bluesy vocal samples. It sounds like an underground summer anthem in waiting. There's more of a funk-flecked urgency about the excellent S3A Broken STL Remix, which introduces further vocal samples and, arguably, an even more addictive groove. Certainly, it feels a little wilder than the original, whilst retaining Llorca's unique deep house perspective.

Review: Brooklyn label Razor-N-Tape get in on the Record Store Day action with this special edition of Beatin Tha Breaks from Nashville-based Magic In Threes. It's the remixes that come first, with Dutch artist Fouk going into similar house territory to Kenny Dope with plenty of live instrumental touches blessing the bristling percussion. It's a totally different vibe on the Freddie Joachem remix, with the Californian opting for some midtempo funk breaks that stay closer to the sound of Magic In Threes' original version. This closes out the RSD release on the B-side and is an easy-breezy affair dripping with soulful guitars and harmonies.
