from $2.07
Review: It's been a good four months since the last EP from formidable disco/funk/soul twosome Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee. Here they return to the Editorial label (their usual home) with five more chunks of party-starting scalpel action. Naturally, there's plenty to get the juices flowing, from the rubbery bass, rolling grooves and undulating strings of "Boogie Box", and the whistle-laden disco-funk heaviness of "Groove Catcher", to the unfettered, looped-up sweetness of "Givin' Ya Up". Best of all, though, is the party-in-an-MP3 release of opener "Up 2 Get Down", a horn-totin' slab of disco-funk that hits all the right notes.

Review: Beard-touting, Vienna-based producer Dorian has been bothering clubs throughout 2014 with his unique brand of hellraising, high-energy D&B smackdowns. It's in this though, the Unknown EP, that we can really start to hear his sounds come together. A fan of big, brash bass and ripped-up samples, there's still elements of chopped and changed individuality throughout, but what's here in the finished product is a cohesive, highly impressive piece of work. Not bad for a sub-genre vastly underrated by the beard-stroking massive.

Played by: KS French
Review: The scarily prolific KS French - France's most productive maker of house-friendly disco re-edits - returns with the third instalment of his ongoing Super Groove series. As usual, there's plenty to tickle the fancy of those looking for tried-and-tested, club-friendly interpretations of classic and little-known cuts. "B Rappin" does an impressive job of tweaking Blondie's "Rapture" - working the groove hard and abandoning most of the vocals - while the standout "See My Baby" offers an addictive interpretation of a familiar, low-slung disco-funk groover. Elsewhere, check the celebratory horns, hustling groove and thrilling vocals of "My Music". While KS French has added his usual metronomic house beats, it's deftly done.

Review: Back after an absence of well over a year, the deep and moody Proxima is back in bass business, this time courtesy of Rinse. The beats are still around the 140 mark and the mood is still deep: "Trapped" kicks things off with some dark alleyway vibes - all shifty beats and general eeriness, "Fate" soon picks up the pace with some seriously anxious drum patterns and sweaty-palms-synth-pads and lastly the EP's heaviest track, "Fallout", is full of taut, writhing mechanical snarls. Still sinister, still fresh!

from $1.49
Review: Having built up his reputation via a series of well-regarded re-edit releases, Australian producer Greg Packer has recently impressed with EPs of original music on Hotbox Boogie and Hot Digits. Here he returns to the latter with the expansive Diagnosis: Disco, a collection of tracks that expertly joins the dots between warm disco and slinky deep house. Highlights are plentiful, from the baggy, filter-heavy '80s soul shuffle of "Enuff Love" and the spiralling, near Balearic rush of "Hypnotizing", to the energetic throb of the gloriously synth-laden "Keep Doin' What You're Doin". Label boss Fingerman has a pop at remixing lead cut "Trip To The Galaxy", layering Packer's warm original elements with twinkling pianos, delay-laden vocal snippets and immersive deep house chords.

from $1.49
Review: Everyone loves a good story behind a record and few come with a more interesting narrative than this debut (and perhaps only) Talamanca System 12". The story goes that Gerd Janson and Phil Lauer were enjoying the Ibizan hospitality of International Feel boss Mark Barrot last summer, to the extent they were both gifted his unused Studio Electronics 'Boomstar 303' synth. Eager to repay such a lavish favour, Janson offered to remix a track Barrot was working on, an offer which eventually resulted in this 12". Four versions of "Balanzat" feature here, with an original, acid reflux, Tuff City Kids refix and ambient reprise to choose from. If this is the only Talamanca System record we will see it's a shame as it's a mighty fine addition to the International Feel discography.

Review: Manchester's label/clubnight combo El Diablo has a knack for releasing some pretty heavyweight edits, but this eighth installment of its To Rack & Ruin series really ups the ante. With DJ Rocca teaming up with N2B, we are treated to four precision scalpel jobs, all of which really tease out the bassy loops. Highlights include seven minute opener "Get Up" - a dubby odyssey into misty lands of shuffly beats, incessant basslines and wah-wah guitar aplenty. Also the suspended tension of Balearic mind-trip "Weird Safari" and the '80s slap bass aerobics of "Mr Rossi's Backpain" are worth checking out.

New Best Friend (instrumental) - (6:24) 116 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having recently impressed with the superb "Flash" on Craig Bratley's admirable Magic Feet label, Rich Lane returns to his Cotton Bud imprint with "New Best Friend", a bubbling chunk of new beat-inspired nu-disco. The original version laces a wonky, pitched-down spoken word vocal over sharp synths, bubbly electronics and a bassline that's reminiscent of some of Chicken Lips' classic productions on Kingsize. It's a kind of hymn to the joys of dancing with strangers, which is no bad thing. There's an alternative Instrumental included, too, which sounds even more like Chicken Lips jamming with the Confettis in Ghent, circa 1989.

Review: He's back again, that Alien Disco Sugar, beaming out new communications from his Grecian headquarters. The Happiness EP sees a more sumptuous, groove-ridden vibe than usual, all set across four disco sizzlers. "Any Way You Wanna" begins proceedings with some sublime filtered disco-house set around that timeless Saddle Up And Ride Your Pony riff, "Blows My Mind" continues with the shimmering velvet and silk disco joy, it's all about the tight bass on "Feel It" and "Happiness" wraps it all up with a perky electro-funk confection.

Review: Disco Tech's re-edit label DiscoDat has earned itself a strong reputation due to its relentless stream of high quality reworks. Here, on the Metropolis EP, they look towards Fritz Lang for some inspiration, but beyond the titles and cover, the mysterious Rare Cuts stick to '70s grooves. There are four tracks to immerse yourself in, with our favourites being the smooth and jazzy soul ballad "Sweetest Pain" and the suspended tension of tight and funky space jam "Get It Up".

Review: The latest track to be chosen as a single from recent album Chrome Waves is "Just Wanna Be Loved", the original of which sounded like a wine bar on the South of France circa 1985 (in all the right ways). Here however, its all about the remixes and there's some killer reworks to be found. Highlights include the mystic beat voodoo-tech of Art Of Tone's title track rework, the vintage jazzy Euro-disco of Hot Toddy's dub of "Back Again" and slick speed garage of Animist's celestial reverie.

Played by: Dj stex, Tonbe, 80s CHILD
Review: Solid Fool is one of those pesky "mystery artists" that are so prevalent these days - a well-regarded Austrian producer who wishes to remain nameless. Here Comes The Sun marks his debut for Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint. His style neatly sidesteps easy categorization, utilising classic (and obscure) disco, funk, soul and electrofunk samples alongside nu-disco synths and weighty deep house grooves. It's a formula that guarantees fun-times and funk aplenty. Opener "Here Comes The Sun" is particularly good - a bumpy, thrill-a-minute fusion of P-funk bottom end, shimmering synths and vocals lifted from a classic cover of the well-known Beatles record. Elsewhere, "Lone Gone" is a delicious, toe-tapping head-nodder that adds a reggae swing to a killer disco groove, while the epic "Lovechild" is a 12-minute exercise in slowly building disco release.

Review: All-round bass legend Zed Bias touches down on Black Butter with a hot new single backed by a rather killer selection of remixes. Title track "Shizam" features the vocals of Stylo G and Scruffizer, and it's a purely grimed-out affair from start to finish, with a heavy touch of percussive action. Among the three remixes, grime legend Plastician makes a rare appearance with a reinterpretation that takes us back to FWD's early days - that bassline is a true slasher in every sense of the word.

Review: Sheffield's Chip Butty label returns with its latest unmissable dose of bass, with label owner Dr Cryptic delivering three tracks alongside another trio of low-end heaters from Dr Oscillator. Brilliantly titled the Dr Who? EP, it sees Dr Oscillator deliver the digidub-flecked bass of "BIG", the frantic sub workout of "Cocaine" and dark, sinister stripped-back sounds of "Mandem". Dr Cryptic's contributions are on the much ruder end of the bass scale, with "I Don't Care", a peak time slice of 4/4 featuring red alert sirens, "Rudebwoi" a vortex of churning bass and killer vocals and "Gibbo" another tune guaranteed to mash up the dance with its frequencies. Essential stuff!

Review: Peza is a shady re-edit hero, whose previous releases have created all kinds of a stir in the disco world. This latest EP, Subway, for the esteemed Midnight Riot, has already notched up some serious pre-release support from the likes of Andy Weatherall and Horse Meat Disco. One listen to the four tracks included here and you can tell why - we get everything from some slowed-down Eurythmics ("Stranger") to the deep and spacey funk grooves of "You Ain't Never" via the female disco/clavinet interface funk of "Do You Have Any?".

Shift (instrumental) - (4:38) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Displace, Proxima
Review: On his first release for Deep Medi Musik this year, Commodo taps up JME for a mean lyrical flow over the top of a typically monstrous production, making a perfect dubstep / grime crossover track in the process. JME has a blast pointing back to classic reference points from Kano and Wiley and many more in his conscious MC turn, while Commodo's beat prowls in the background with that exotic charm that has always marked out his style from the rest of the pack. There's a hooky chorus and plenty of grand stabs, and for those who just want the tune the instrumental is bundled in as well. The fact that the beat stands up on its own without any trouble says a lot about Commodo's studio prowess, which is no doubt why he continues to be a mainstay on Mala's label.

Review: Proper deep house business from two of the most respected long-timers in the UK game. First up Art Of Tones delivers a beautifully clean swinger laced with the perfect amount of jazzy chords and a killer semi-spoken word vocal - so simple but devastatingly effective. "Got 2 Get 2", meanwhile, sees the Shadeleaf bossman Monkz get busy on a Chi-town flex. Rugged, jacking and just the right amount of sleazy, it wouldn't have gone amiss on Classic back in the day. For added weight and late night mischief jump on the dub. Trust us: you've got 2 get this one.

Highlights include Isaac Hayes' slinky romantic ramble "That Loving Feeling" and the catchy Bee Gees-style jam of T Con's "Let's Do It Today".

Review: Re-edit don Rayko still seems to be able to pull gems out of the bag at an alarming rate. Here he's done it again with a selection 'cheeky' edits, some more obvious than others. "Can't Get Enough" is made for those in love with the glistening dry ice electronics of mid-80s soul, Linn drum breaks and all. "Rock My World" is a re-work of Wacko Jacko's opinion-dividing 2001 comeback single, "Step Out Of My Dreams" is killer West End-style electro-disco and finally "Touch Me" sees Cathy Dennis' late '80s pop tune reduced to a ferociously funky guitar and cowbell workout.

from $1.49
Review: Roots For Bloom SHAG Edits series returns with volume 3. M.James brings us a track that will catch any music lovers ear. With the crisp percussion, delicate guitar riffs, a bassline that keeps evolving throughout and that vocal, this one ticks all the boxes. On the flip label boss Jamie Trench maintains the general feel for the record. This one focusing on a simpler yet just as effective bassline and obviously being heavily reliant on the sample being in the shag edits series. If you're looking for that record that stands out from the rest, this is the weapon you need.

Review: Here the award winning breaks label Ghetto Funk presents its latest coup: the joint work of spectacularly named producers DJ Maars and Tom Showtime. It's all about the party jams here, with "Lion On My Side" kicking things off on an almost go-go tip with extra hands in the air vibes courtesy of some mean ragga MCing. Elsewhere 'Happy Deals" mixes vintage ska with some heavy sub bass, "Funk Haffi Make" is loopy ragga funk and "Shake N Break" wraps things up as a sunshine reggae/hip-house hybrid.

Instrumentals and acapella versions are also supplied for maximum fun.

Review: Increasingly sparring in the studio and on the decks, Bristol bods Hodge and Facta consummate their partnership with this release for Rinse that highlights two very different but equally essential cuts. "Spheres Of Costa Rica" riffs on a distant and enchanting hook of traditional vocal and places it in the midst of a spooky house framework rich with melodic percussive hits and plenty of low-end heft. "Visions" meanwhile takes a more moody route into oppressive industrial scrapes and dubby treatments to make a thoroughly contemporary hybrid belter that holds back as much as it releases. It's an assured release that plays on the strengths of both producers and points the way for more cool and deadly dance killers to come.

First up, a bubbling take on EMF's 1990 top 10 smasher "Unbelievable". Instant sing-along with added swing, it will appeal to those who can remember it, and those lucky to be young enough not to. "Spaceman" thrusts us to 1996 with Babylon Zoo's pitched vocal classic. Lolloping along with a quirky off-beat garage bass, it will indeed shoot your floor into cosmoses unknown.

Review: UK beat maverick Mr Dubz touches down once again on the Project Allout imprint with four new slices of penetrating speed garage. "Losing It", as the name suggests, is a nutty blend of shuffling percussion and raucous, twisted basslines, while "Sekkle" is tough little grime monster for the head-nodders. "Bwoi Fi Dead" is another heavy half-time monster complete with all sorts of dread vocal shops, while "Ready Fi War" takes us back to the early-to-mid noughties when grime and hard-hitting wobble-step were being mashed up left, right and centre.

He's fighting fit and ready to demonstrate some discerning darkness with crystalline clarity. Highlights on this deep and deadly document include the precision positioned percussion on "Khora", the naked drum jungle homage "Shadow" and the breath-taking jazz pianos on "Sub Basics". Forward-thinking throughout, we're anticipating plenty more next level bass business from Sub Basics as he develops.

Review: As you'd expect it to, this slice of Midlands-based jungle fun comes correct with some vintage hip hop stylings to add some spice to the mix. Throw in a ton of retro vibes and "We Love Hip hop" takes off into the stratosphere, mixing in a deep sub wobble for good measure. K Jah & Vytol know their stuff when it comes to making dancefloor-driven anthems with classy old skool flavours and they haven't let us down with this one. Big, brash and booming, there's only one thing to do when this tune drops - get moving.

Review: A lot of re-edit producers seem to be reappearing following a fairly long hibernation period. It can't be a coincidence that the sun's out too - as re-edits are good times music. The Reflex are finally back and there'll be some mighty good times soundtracked by "Bongle Joogie", an almost seven-minute muscled up version of Kool And the Gang's monster party jam. Meanwhile, Earth, Wind & Fire's timeless hit "September" gets tweaked into a floaty cloud of party joy, with some pretty impressive acapella breaks too.

Review: Trashbat has smashed 2014 to pieces with his MindStep releases, and we reckon this is his best yet. Showcasing his broadest sounds throughout, we range from deep dungeon-bound murkage on "Realness" to smoky future soul of "Scale & Tusk" (where Sarah Zad doesn't sound too far away from a young Ms Badu). Elsewhere we get heavily meditative by the spacious arrangement of "Gold Fire" and get drenched by the big Detroit synth sprays of "Moist Beat". Six tracks of originality, each one exploring a different shade of bass, may Trashbat continue smashing for a long time to come.

Review: Famed across the country throughout the '90s as one of the first promoters to import big US house DJs, Hard Times' relaunch has been a refreshing reminder of house music's heritage and longstanding influence beyond the current cookie-cutter deep house bubbles. For its second release it takes us back to 1996 with eight different remixes of Karen Pollard's criminally overlooked classic. Each version slaps, but highlights include the grunting bass rumbles of Mineo's mix, the tunnelling sub drone of Mat Playford's mix and the rising refrain of the bass hook on Spen and Soulfuledge's mix.

Review: Latvia might not be your first stop for up and coming jungle stars, but Liondub International has definitely found one in Kenji. For the 10th volume of "$treet $eries", first track "Gun Proof" blasts out straight rudeboy style with bass bombs and a layered synthesizer backdrop. With tempo and temperature rising, "In Yo Crib" kicks down the door with rough bassline-led jump up. The title track strips it further back to roughneck basics with plenty of space and "Look at the Sky" deploys the same skeletal tactics in a roller. Closer "Primary Force" fills out the sound palette with warring sample layers and techy nonchalance. Think again about Latvia!

Crown Heights Affair also get two hip swaying brassy tracks featured here, rounding off the euphoric party vibes in style.

Fields Of May - (7:32) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Review: According to the press release accompanying this latest single from New Zealand duo Reed and Radley, lead cut "Descenders of the Faith" is "the sound of a late '80s warehouse rave invaded by an android Liberace, as re-imagined by Buck Rogers in the 25th century". In other words, it's a retro-futurist gem, where classic house pianos and bubby electronics meet driving beats and sweaty late night charm. There's more of a straightforward, dub-flecked deep house feel to "Headstones", before "Fields Of May" takes a trip back to the halcyon days of house music via a chunky Chicago bassline, New Jersey grooves and classic Italian house riffs.

Review: Historically Samurais were a pretty tough bunch - really tough - so you shouldn't name your record after them unless you're pretty hard. Thankfully Swifft Edits bring the muscle here, with four nuggets, all solid enough to crack a tooth on. Seemingly all sourced in Japan, P&C's "Superstar" is lilting Euro-disco of the melancholy kind, Minachan's "Light It Up" is flute-laden Loveboat funk, whilst Akko's "Doshaburi" is all about the breaky organ-led '60s grooves and Tabo's "4am" is a vocally layered sojourn through rainy late night Tokyo backstreets.

Review: The latest signings to Erol Alkan's label are Cowboy Rhythmbox aka edit king Nathan Gregory Wilkins and remixer, producer and mash-up expert Richard X. Given their past adventures and exploits, it's no surprise that Box is such a raucous affair. "We Got The Box" is based on a jacking, filtered groove with a woman intoning on repeat something to do with the title (although it sounds closer to "we got the pox"). However, it's not as impressive as "Rattle". Percussive and laced with acid, its Latino chants and insistent rhythm are sure to cause mayhem whenever they are dropped.

Review: Dub Solution comes through undeniably correct with number 57 in the Soulserious series. After having already released another two EPs for the label, he's become something of a regular, and his swinging, cut-throat style is instantly recognisable. "Deny Love" is a hard, punishing house cut, and the same goes for the pummelling number that is "Boxed". "Divide" is tamer and a little more soulful, while "Rebels Revenge" feels like its angrier, more distorted sibling. Finally, "Make It High" rests somewhere between electro and grime, further demonstrating the producer's diversity and singularity.

Review: It's been a rapid rise for Paleman, conquering Swamp 81 in a short space of time and getting snapped up for remixes by all manner of respected entities, and here Calum Lee kicks up the dust on 81 with the anthemic parp of "Beezeldub". With those plastic horn blasts calling out, any dance worth its salt is going to lose its proverbials, and that's before the stripped and weighty core of the track kicks in. It's a cut perfectly toned and buffed for maximum club response, and it sits in a neat contrast to the more esoteric fare of "Newun". Where the lead track demands attention from the off, this second jam snakes in with a tricky rhythm and plenty of oddball, dubby effects for a more subtle and largely percussive effect.

Expect the follow up in early December - in the mean time, mop your mind off the floor and re-listen. It gets better every time.

Review: Bambounou again proves he is a reliable source for straight up dancefloor music devoid of pretence and full of quality. The producer's French house side shines through on this fourth release for 50Weapons, but he still holds on to the ghetto vibe he's shown on his ClekClekBoom releases, while keeping it deep. "Feel Like This" features a skipping house beat with a repetitive vocal and evolving background textures, while "Onto This" is a fuller alternative thanks to upfront chords and extra percussion.
