Played by: Sektor
Review: Following Etherwood and Fred V & Grafix, S.P.Y is the next to step up to the "Hospital Mixtape" series with a walloping 31-track mix of which almost half has never been released before. As you'd expect from the bazillion dollar Brazilian, the range is wide with tendencies to gully. Essential exclusives you'd be an absolute madman not to check include his deep-swing twist on Digital's seminal "Deadline", the insane sub bass slipperiness on Random Movement's incredible "In Space No One Can Hear You Funk" and the "Up All Night" style late 90s slap down with his brother Unreal "Enduro". A proper mix and a previously unobtainable selection that's yours for the taking... What's not to love here?

Review: Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint has packed in a lot of releases over the past 12 months, as this expansive roundup of the label's second year in business proves. Featuring 27 tracks and a bonus mix by the South Coast dwelling label boss, there's naturally plenty to admire. Highlights include, but are not limited to, the rolling, head-nodding grooves of Eyeco M's "Keeping It To Myself", the killer proto-house throb of "Tonight" by Bad Barbie vs Evil Smarty, the sexy, string-drenched disco loveliness of P-Sol's "Can't You See", LTJ's trumpet-boasting funk bumper "Fat Thing", and the hard-wired, bass-heavy rework of Julia & Company's "Breakin' Down (Sugar Samba)" by Melon Bomb. It is, though, all pretty darn hot.

Review: The best thing about spring is all the new stuff starts to arrive. Editorial have taken this idea quite literately and have rounded up a whole bunch of fresh new faces and tunes. There are nine fine jams contained on Spring Thing comp, some of the (many) highlights include the sweet and tender boogie-pop of "Good 4 You" by the artfully-punned Serge Gamesbourg, the throbbing bass loops of the sublime "Closer & Closer" and the mesmerising fusion of punk-funk bass and sunshine keyboard melodies on "Brighter" by Dagfest.

Review: The first compilation on Koze's Pampa label is a lovingly curated affair. It starts with the left field house of Herbert's take on Lianne La Havas and Ada's r&b-infused "You & Me", as well as DJ Koze's own hymnal take on Roman Flugel's "9 Years". Other Pampa regulars like Axel Boman are well represented and he provides the ultra-mellow "In The Dust of This Planet". Equally though, Koze also provides a platform for newcomers to the fold. There's the utterly bizarre, glitch-hop of Nasrawi and Funskstorung's contributions, and at the other end of the spectrum, wide-eyed deep house from Mount Kimbie and Jamie xx & Kosi Kos' pumping indie-dance "Come We Go".

Review: Given his credentials and track record, it's unsurprising that original disco and boogie artists are willing to let Joey Negro play around with their biggest hits. His first stab at this kind of multi-track remix, 2014's Remixed With Love, was such a success that he's decided to unleash another swathe of revisions over two vinyl double-packs. This edition features some killer reworks, including a sublime, on-point rearrangement of Gwen McRae's "Keep The Fire Burning" and a rolling, dubbed-out version of Grace Jones' "Pull Up To The Bumper" that rivals Larry Levan's classic remix. The veteran producer also successfully turns Pockets' "Come Go With Me" into a classic soulful house rub, and pushes Thelma Houston's "I'm Here Again" further towards disco anthem territory.

Review: Break Beat Paradise Recordings tend to celebratory the more celebratory side of breakbeat music. Here though, the gloves are off on this hard-hitting compilation, Big Fat Mama Beats. There are seven fresh jams to enjoy including the housed-up, ska-infused bouncer "Chinese Robots (Re-Up)" by DiscObeta, Mr Rich & The Caretaker's street tough electro breaks cover of "My Feelings For You" (originally a Gwen McRrae joint) and the urgent percussion and Middle Eastern samples of Crunch "(Scratch By DJ Craft)" by Funky Boogie Brothers. Dope!

Review: Funky Breaks, Ghetto Funk, Nu Funk, Glitch Funk, Nu Skool & Old Skool Breaks: you name it, they got it! London's Funk Fusion are back with Fused Funk Volume 16, which is a whopper of a compilation; 17 servings of block rockin' beats which will suit any occasion.. almost! Some of the highlights on here (and there's quite a few) are: "More Diggity" by Jay Tip; no guesses what this is a remix of (hint: Blackstreet!) but there's no hints for which rock'n roll classic got mashed up with jump-up drum and bass on Phat Bangers Club's "Wah Wah Everybody". Elsewhere, Sticky Icky's "I Wanna Hold You" takes the timeless classic by The Beatles and injects it with some tough breaks.

Review: Powerhouse institution Renegade Hardware continue to wind their operations up to a dewy eyed climax at the end of this year and Reflections marks the start of their final ever releases. A concept that celebrates the label's distinct futuristic, uncompromised signature while retaining its classic roots, this album manages to span 20 years deftly and authoritatively: Perez's halftime take on Future Cut, Ink's tribal steppery and NC17's tubular bass tones and classic jump-up dynamics are just three of many highlights on this album that ensures Renegade's contribution and influence on the scene will be noted right up until it closes down forever. Just two more albums to go. Sad face...

Review: Crate digging in the Northern Soul scene is the gift that keeps on giving - an endless quest for rarer and rarer gems. Here Beatnik present a new collection that features nine classic Motown and Northern Soul cuts which have been sensitively retouched by some contemporary talent. Highlights include the celebratory, fizzy soul jam "Soul On Fire" by Shaka Loves You (yes, the one sampled by Beyonce), a Junkie XL-style makeover of Martha & The Vandellas on "Nowhere To Go" and Mak & Mr Bristow's muscled up take on The Rascals - "Olympic Lovin".

Review: Valique must have the world's largest record collection, as he is now on his fourth anniversary re-edit compilation and still shows no signs of stopping. This time round we get a whopping 28 reworks to choose from. It's packed full of copyright dodging megahit reworks including "Booty Itching" which features a super-teased KC & The Sunshine Band sample, the trippy acidic rework of Owner Of A Lonely Heart by Yes and dreamy disco laser-fest "When Did I Stop Loving You". Party gold.

Review: Stanton Warriors have been on a mission to bring us the finest broken beat and heavy bass on Punks Music since 2001. Here the debut volume of the their new 'Punks Selection' series is curated by Mafia Kiss and focuses in 'on the deeper/stripped sounding side of the label's roster'. There is a whopping 22 track featured, as well as a one-hour DJ mix. Highlights include the urgent, haunted bounce of "The Oracle" by Leda Stray, the sultry, late night breakbeats of "K2" by Aloka and the scattershot ghetto beats of "Check Me Out" by Sly One.

Review: Situationism is run by a mysterious 'collective of DJs and producers from the five valleys'. Although little is revealed about their identities, we do know that this compilation is their biggest release yet and it boasts the mighty "On It" by Peza. The track's clever fusion of a boogie sample (Starguard's High On The Boogie) and some subtle 303 work has got people talking and dancing already. The quality stays high over the remaining tracks too, highlights including George Kelly's melancholic Italo gem, "Trip to Jupiter", Vampire Disco's moody synth prowler "Orbit" and the chilled cocktail grooves of Alkalino's "Trigger".

Review: US spoken word don Rich Medina is usually seen releasing a downtempo strain of hip-hop that branches out into more soulful territories, but BBE have snapped him up to take control of their latest compilation, this being number one in the new Jump 'n' Funk series. Tropical-flavoured funk would be the best way to give you a snapshot of this glorious collection of music, ranging from rare afrobeat to newer, more contemporary broken beat rhythms, but in reality this is simply a wonderful vibe placed under one roof. Inside, you'll find everything from drumming legend Tony Allen, to Fela Kuti, Tweak, Jungle By Night, and plenty more dance-friendly artists. Warmly recommended, and afro comp of the week from us!

Notorious BIG makes an appearance on this compilations opener while JLO vocals and dirty electro can be found on "Get Right". Scale down the tracklist and you'll come across J5, old school funk and flutes to The Champs - Tequila!

Review: Greek disco producer Timewarp teams up with an anonymous pal from funk blog extraordinaire, The Zuzu Club, for this compilation that's exclusively about 'great and fresh' new music. Although there's no theme they do look across the water to the Caribbean for some inspiration on the likes of the laid back reggae lament of "Theory Of Revolution" and the smooth dancehall grooves of "Baby Got Me Good". Elsewhere we encounter vintage electro-swing on Pavlov's "Moving Next Door", retro lounge-rock on "Jesu" By Loopez and even some good old big beat on "Jungle Boogie" by Chinese Man.

Review: Synthesis is the fourth Digital album and it might be his most ambitious undertaking yet! The album's sixteen tracks see the UK producer working alongside a swathe of high profile contemporaries. The danger with projects such as this, is the lack of cohesion and binding theme but its clear Digital conceived Synthesis as a display of all that's good in the current scene. Exceptionally well produced and engineered, it's nigh on difficult to pick out a highlight here with the likes of Om Unit, Nomine, Villem, Spirit and the mighty Klute excelling in their bass science explorations alongside Digital. An album to really sink your teeth into.

Review: Although not primarily known as a DJ, Los Angeles electrofunk hero Dam Funk boasts a killer record collection. That much is proved by this superb contribution to the DJ Kicks series. This DJ-friendly digital edition is chock full of highlights, from the deep, synth-heavy modern boogie of Moon B's superb "Ooof", and the bouncy, deep Chicago house of Gemini's "Log In", to the smooth, eyes-closed Yacht Rock grooves of "True To Yourself" by Terry Palkovic. Predictably, he's also found room for a string of lesser-known boogie and synth-funk gems, including all 14 minutes of Randall & Schippers' smooth "Love Jam", the sparkling boogie-soul of Take Three's "Tonight's The Night (For Love)", and a killer chunk of 1983 electro from Uncle Jamm's Army ("Dial-A-Freak", an early outing from The Egyptian Lover and friends).

Review: As suggested by their name, This Ain't Bristol are a German label pushing UK sounds. Maximono are a duo of Drum & Bass producers from London and Hannover who have switched to house music and their bass driven, fun loving tendencies will no doubt mark comparisons to the Dirtybird crew over the Atlantic. They've taken over A&R duties for the label here and this compilation reflects their tastes There's some surefire dancefloor artillery on here such as Maximono themselves with "Bleep", Dirtybird alumnus Worthy with the bass heavy party vibes of "Big End", the druggy and minimal main room vibes of Los Angeleno Dillon Nathaniel on "Keep On Keepin On" and Berliner Ben Mono's "You Know It's True" which just reeks of Sunday afternoon hedonism at Kater Blau.
