Review: The Giant Cuts crew have been keeping the boogie side of the disco fire burning with their Disco Boogie Classics series for over a year now, and on this essential release they reach their fifth volume. Once again the source material is a closely guarded secret, but whether it's the cowbell-heavy, Rhodes-led funk of "Dance (Move Ya Body)", the smooth licks and sweltering '80s production of "Jump To The Edit", the party starting vocal on "Feel It" or the deep down disco sleaze of standout track "Limited Search", there's something here for everyone to get their own disco dancefloors bumping.

Review: If anyone can fuse Q-Tip, Busta and Sister Sledge, it's the Disco Cakes head honchos Defkline and Red Polo. In fact their baking is so sweet they've cooked up two versions; a funk-fuelled disco jam and a swaggering, breakbeat-heavy hip-hop version. Naturally both cuts are so tasty your dancefloor will be munching out of the palm of your hand. Further on we're punched with a bass-battered nu-funk version of Joan Jett's "I Love Rock N Roll" and sweet-talked by the sexy dancehall version of early 90s hip-hop crew K7 on "Come Baby Come". Yummy.

Review: With early support from Greg Wilson, Fingerman and Yam Who? it's a pretty good bet that this new EP from Surrey's The Twisted Soul Collective is going places. "Holy Hustler" kicks thing off with a slow deep disco throb before introducing some retro hip-house samples. Things go up a gear with the golden voiced euphoria of Dusty Springfield on "Dusty Love", before we are drawn into hypnotic Latin groove of the sax brandishing "BB Man". Things wrap up with a nightcap in the form of frisky cocktail house number "Magic Chant".

Review: Hype and Pascal - two of the scene's true badmen - return with a high-octane blast through their hyperactive repertoire, picking fights and sending out sparks as they go. Their sound has morphed slightly with this release, opting for a deeper taste of old skool sounds to match bass-led histrionics, and the result is immense. Already tearing up clubs across the UK, hardcore fans have been waiting for "Borg" and "Stronger" and who can blame them? You can't afford to sleep on this, each track is a masterpiece.

from $1.49
Review: After successfully releasing the debut of EGYPTIAN NIPPLES (duo act formed by Massimiliano Pagliara and Jules Etienne) with the 5 track EP "BACK BUT HALF" Apersonal Music now reveals the remix pack for the mini-album, commissioning 4 experienced producers seeking to maintain the high quality and old school vibe of the original tracks. German producer Lauer maintains the old school US vibe of "Back But Half", while Jay Shepheard gives a clubby dancefloor twist to the electro gem "Bottle Of Mine". Session Victim (Retreat / Delusions Of Grandeur) wisely understood the coastal vibe of the original EP (and album cover) by remixing "L.A. Melody" towards a Caribbean taste with a Berlin vibe. Last but not least, Luvless (Rose Records / Razor N Tape) takes "Weekend Lover" and transformes it into a dreamy sound blaster for that special moment in your DJ set. Someone said after party?

Review: Thwack! That's the sound of those rubber gloves being smacked on in preparation for the procedure that's about to commence. Don't worry though, it's not a cavity search, the mysterious Dr Packer is about to apply his precision scalpel skills to some vintage sounds in an operation bound to make these oldies seem younger, fresher, sexier, groovier. There are four incisions here, each as fine as the last. Highlights include the Hall & Oates goes Balearic roller "Want My Soul", the warm Italo goodness of "Smiling" and the swishy Loveboat-isms of "Give It All You Got".

Review: Ever since JD Twitch rebooted Optimo Music, it's been the irregular transmissions from Glasgow act Golden Teacher that has hit the spot each and every time. The amalgamation of two diverse bands from the city -noise punk outfit Ultimate Thrush and analogue house duo Silk Cut, Golden Teacher first emerged on Optimo Music early last year with a pretty apt description of sounding like "Arthur Russell's Dinosaur L jamming with Bobby O, K Alexi Shelby, Liaisons Dangereuses and Imagination, with some voodoo drummers and Sly & Robbie". Steadily building up a reputation for some riotous live performances, Golden Teacher are a class above because they manage to distill this energy into their recorded output too. Party People features three such examples, with A-side cut "Love" the kind of production that sufferers of LCD Soundsystem withdrawal will embrace and cherish for years to come.

Feeling Good (Classic Love Deep mix) - (6:56) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Edit fiends Basic Fingers usually reserve their tastiest material for the occasionally used Gold Finger offshoot. That's arguably the case here, as Deejaykul delivers a sumptuously deep and soulful house interpretation of the much-played "Feeling Good" (think Nina Simone, though this version has a delicious male vocal). The A-side DeejayKul meets Soultechnic Deepa mix is particularly potent, with intricate Latin percussion, smooth pads and sensual vocal riding an effortlessly sunny groove. There's a bit more vintage US garage on the other track, where the Classic Love Deep mix laces soft-focus chords and classic organs over a typically skippy groove. Impeccable stuff, all told.

Review: Alix Perez on Exit? That's enough to make most D&B aficionados froth at the mouth. Throw in collabs with the equally hot Stray and two of footwork's most demonstrative players and you've got a release so cool it comes with its own beard. "U" is a rifle-like jitter-jam of cuts and chops, all massages together to juke glue. "Sludge", meanwhile, lives up to its name in every way. A funky post-dubstep downbeat strutter, it wonks as hard as it works. The truly unique "Make It Worth", meanwhile, is an eerie stepper that morphs from subtle to stately drama with a Detroit style heaviness and a grime vocal loop. Finally we hit "Gully Halves" which, as the title suggests, is a waspy paranoid bassline on a dark stroppy halfstep. Four incredible future jams from the Shogun superstar... This is next level business.

Review: With their influences ranging from chart-baiting house music to skippy garage and deeper moods, Nu Era stride forth on their debut single for Four40 as representatives of the West Midlands scene. "Give It All" screams crossover appeal with its canny mix of vocals, strings and chords precision placed for maximum ear-worming, while the "Bass Mix" brings a much ruder underground twist on the track. "Came Into My Life" rides a more electro influenced beat but keeps the cheerful melodic elements and chipmunk vocal slices present and correct, leaving it to "Source" to bring a techno edge to proceedings with its nasty synth line and strict 4/4 jack.

Review: Run Tingz Digital tear a hole into the new season with their first release of 2014. Living up to its name, "Road Block" is a party-packed skanker that's set to become a summer anthem , courtesy of the label's very own J.Man. Signed exclusively in 2013, his agenda-setting remixes of undisputed Run Tingz classics has cemented his name as one of the best in the business. This is his debut original project with the label, building on his already impressive profile. Complete with his signature jungle drumming and instantly recognisable horn riffs (taken from The Aggravators' "Rockers Almighty" no less) it's the perfect complement to the impeccable lyrical talent of Parly B. One firing original, three vibing versions; Run Tingz Digital are tearing up the dance with promise. Jump on this now!

Played by: Joseph Terruel
Review: Surprisingly little information exists online about new Home Taping artist Simba. BY the sounds of "Phase Seq One", though, he's something of a talent. You see, "Phase Seq One" is deep, crackly, woozy and soulful, sounding not unlike the heady productions of Detroit heavyweights Andres and Moodymann - all warm loops, bumpin' beats, classic soul vocal samples and just the right amount of filter tweakery. As debuts go (assuming this is his debut), it's pretty damn hot. The Black Madonna delivers the obligatory remix, stripping back the original and adding a little more drum machine oomph to the beats. The resultant version - blessed with occasional intricate keys and the usual BM Chicago soul - is something of a late night triumph.

Played by: DJ Maars
Review: Dirty Dubster's popular Ragga Party Jams series continues, with another quartet of dubwise mash-ups and reggae/hip-hop futures. Larry SKG kicks things off with "Hypocrites", an expertly crafted fusion of a classic soulful reggae riddim and well-chosen hip-hop samples. DJ Maars' "Just Like Music" blends a familiar rap vocal and sunshine reggae jam with vocal cuts from a classic Marvin Gaye slow jam, while DJ Rebel's "Here Comes The Mashupper" layers a skanking riddim with all manner of familiar vocal samples. Best of all, though, is "I Shot Big L", in which Bob Marley takes a trip into scratchy reggae hip-hop territory. It shouldn't work, but it's sympathetically produced and sounds like a sunshine anthem in the making.

Review: Canadian nu-funk upstart Bryx returns to Bomb Strikes after a brief hiatus with four more floor-shredding slammers. First up is a daring twist on Portishead. Taking the original's haunting undertones and ripping them into pieces with searing bass, it's a bold move but one that pays off. Elsewhere we get itchy and scratchy to the sawtooth heavy "Pop That", we get psychedelic and soulful on "Check It" and end on a raucous bass-ravaged high with "The Fool". Four big bass blasters, one cheeky release, Bryx is back and he's not taking any prisoners.

from $1.49
Review: There's something pleasing about the no-nonsense approach of the Killer Funk Disco crew. Their edits cut straight to the chase, chopping, looping and tweaking the key passages - percussive breaks, grooves and choruses, mainly - of their excellent source material. They're in fine form on this fifth volume in the series, which originally dropped on vinyl a few years back. Variously you'll find a perfectly pitched re-cut of a classic dubwise cover of "Staying Alive" ("Sly & Robbie Disco"), horn-totin', hands-in-the-air disco-funk ("Rescue The Edit"), string-laden low-slung disco ("Is That A Firecracker In Your Pocket Harvey...") and a slap-bass sporting disco singalong ("Mmm, Tiger..."). All killer, no filler.

Freeze - (5:34)
from $1.49
Review: Yes! Dominic Angas returns with his first Dom & Roland transmission of 2014 and many will be glad to hear it contains the monumental exercise in Amen murder known as "Remember Your Roots". Slammed in the club by the likes of Goldie, Audio, Break, and Klute, there's been the usual online clamour for "Remember Your Roots" since it first appeared on the Metalheadz Rinse show in December. And rightly so, as it kicks like a farmyard full of mules wearing steel toe capped footwear, but amidst the Amen filled onslaught, rumbling bass lines and that staccato riff, it's Dom's implementation of classic samples that rams home where his roots are! Don't sleep on the B-side either as "Freeze" is every bit as potent a dancefloor cut, a classic arrangement of strings and breakbeats that's befitting of spinnage at the iconic Metalheadz residency at Blue Note.

Review: Fresh-faced nu-funk crew Rise Above call in some big names for their debut quadlet of bass-bitten buzz cuts. Tonic takes the Beasties and drags them into a post apocalyptic future where ugly basslines reign supreme. Howla switches and slams with a series of tightly edited horns and a blisteringly heavy groove. JFB, meanwhile, lays down a bed of rusty bass, sharp breakbeats and an array of cool scratches before dropping into Hendrix's "All Along The Watchtower". Last but definitely not least, WBBL finalises this big debut release deal with a show-stopping disco twist on Mariah Carey. Launch releases don't come any bigger than this.

Review: For their latest statement of intent, Bristol's nu-funk troubadours The Allergies have found a new home at Goodgroove. They've consummated the relationship in fine style too, going a whopping four times in the process. "Special People" is a roaring breaky funker that could easily be mid-70s O'Jays. Elsewhere we get daisy age hip hop jam "React", vintage Stax-style stomper "As We Do Our Thing" and guitar-led rap "Feel Alright". We're glad they're back!

Review: Vienna-based D&B outfit Fourward aren't about to sit back and let their good name carry itself through the ranks. Releasing on Shogun Audio this high-octane mix of neuro and hard stepping floor fillers takes the group to the next level, pushing their influences from Noisia and Ed Rush & Optical to Icicle and Alix Perez through each finely tuned track. From the dark lyrics of "Countdown" featuring Kyza on vocals to the neurofunk masterpiece that is "Phase Align", this is a bad little EP that blows up first, asks questions later. Get your crash helmets ready.

Review: A day with a new Kerri Chandler EP is always a good day, and especially if it comes out on the impressively on-point Watergate. The Berlin dance institution is famous for its varied DJ mixes but they're started dabbling in full-blown releases, and we couldn't be happier. The NY house legend steps up with two new tracks, backed by two killer remixes. "Mama" is a peak-time, piano house burner featuring Jerome Sydenham, while "Think Of Something" is the proper ripper here, with one hell of a hook and a filthy, pouncing bassline. The remixes comes from the likes of Voyeur, who dishes out a real belter, and La Fleur, who goes for a retro kind of vibe on the synths.

from $1.49
Review: Groove Committee's "I Want To Know", produced by Victor Simonelli and a huge club anthem on its initial release on Nu Groove back in 1991, is something of a timeless US house classic. It's nice to see, then, that these new remixes are suitably reverential to Simonelli's original. Revivalist house specialist Nicholas (no stranger to reworking old Nu Groove classics) joins forces with fellow Italian Marcoradi to deliver a brilliantly breezy, piano-heavy take that perfectly captures the spirit of the original. DJ Steaw thickens the beats and adds a little acid spice on his similarly piano-centric rework, while Demetrio Giannice opts for a vintage Italian deep house vibe on his pleasingly tactile take.

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.

Review: Prescott's sound has certainly matured since he emerged in 2010. Breaking through on Nice Up with raw bootleg badness, his gradual movements into authentic contemporary dub have proven his skills as both a musician and a man who understands successful dub dynamics. Highlights across this deep and meditative Liondub debut include the spooked out echoes and trembles of "The Eight Devils", the lonely oriental flutes and strings of "A State Of Mind" and the dark, pensive drama of "Moving In The Shadows". A true dub ninja, Prescott's rise is one that commands complete respect.

Review: E Versions is a brand new edit-focused offshoot of Merc, seemingly allowing label boss Mark E an outlet for some of his unreleased reworks. Given the title, the spotters out there might easily guess what the source material for "Kahn" is, and it immediately calls to mind all those great reworks the Midlands-based producer did for Jiscomusic, Running Back and Golf Channel in the pre-disco edit flood era. It's complemented by "Mingo" which is much more indicative of the brand of hypnotic machine music Mark E is currently specialising in, and will appeal to fans of drums!!!

Review: Parisian DJ Moar seems to be enjoying his recent solo forays so much that it's amazing that he still finds time to release stuff with his band Venice Beach too (but somehow he does). Here he presents four more sweaty, slap-bassy, late night pelvis grinders, the most of obvious of which "Disco Jazzers Delight" takes the overly familiar ("Rappers' Delight") and rearranges it into something completely fresh and new. Elsewhere the source material is less obvious but equally as good and funky with the clean, tight and linear '80s soul grooves of the title track, "Funky Execution" being a real highlight.

Review: Stafford-based producer Dave Gerrard specializes in creating cut-and-paste tracks that blend the best elements of familiar disco, funk, boogie and hip-hop jams. What really marks him out, though, is the classy way that he does it. Check out the way he shifts between basslines, grooves and samples on the boogie-tinged house jam "What We Gonna Do Here" (inspired, if that's the word, by Midnight Express's "Danger Zone") or the way he breathes new life into the Average White Band on the thrilling "Drop The Pieces". There's also a riotous tribute to the giants of P-Funk on "Rip The Funk", arguably the EP's strongest moment.

Review: Gospel vocals, super charged Stevie Wonder inspirations, Daniel Wang disco bleeps - a little bit of Ed Banger-esque sample structure - and new age P-funk meets classic Bootsy Collins. That's one way of explaining the new EP by Space Echo on Luv Shak; "Soul People", however, is a truly sombre and deep house affair. And with two radio edits thrown in, Pete Tong will be licking his lips.

Review: Polish producer Warson has been providing funk-minded breakbeat heads with formidable dancefloor fare since 2011. Here, he pops up on his own Tru Funk imprint with another trio of tried-and-tested floorfillers. "Louder" kicks things off in style, lacing cut-up horns, funk vocal samples and bubbling electronics over a bass-heavy midtempo breakbeat-funk groove. "Love Theme" ups the tempo, basing the action around a classic loose-but-tight breakbeat rhythm. Musically, it has a richer and more expansive feel, with bouncy pianos, sharp strings and fluid funk guitars perfectly accompanying the two prominent vocal samples. He really lets loose on "Happy Song", a jump-up drum and bass roller built around samples from a heavyweight '70s funk rock jam.

Review: "We're sure there's absolutely no need to introduce Deekline and Ed Solo to you rowdy lot," say the liner notes on this double act of D&B madness, "so we'll save ourselves and you the bother..." With that unceremonious intro, we crash straight into the badboys of jungle's latest package of riddims. "Hot This Year" harks back to the sunny yesteryear of summer 2013, where the rain clouds had parted ways, and the sun shone. Ragga jungle MCs were bibbydibbying about London, and good vibes were all that anyone could hear. "Remember" was inspired not only by the lovely sampled vocals here, but also because Deekline really wanted to remind Ed Solo about the time he lent him a fiver...apparently. Grab 'em while they're hot!

Review: There's a raw, sweaty, back-in-the-day feel to this two-track taster of tracks from Philpot boss Soulphiction's live set. "Mind & Body" is built around formidably loose and organic sounding disco drums, complimented by a familiar extended vocal sample from a stone cold disco classic. Yet it also has warm keys and just the right amount of deep house pads. The results are electrifying, offering just the right balance between disco release and contemporary house chops. "Mind & Body", on the other hand, is deep house all the way - think undulating grooves, wide-eyed elecric piano chords, hissing cymbals and the most delicious "wet" electric bassline you'll hear all month. Stellar stuff, all told.

Review: Australian funk wizard D-Funk returns to Grits n Gravy with three new floor monsters and a luscious remix. This guy knows how to get the groove on and "Save Me" is one of those tunes that'll send your panties in a twist from the first bar. Title track, "Kick This Thing" is a certified boogie tool, whilst The Owl's remix goes into deeper mode and brings out the percussion further. "Never Knew" is just the cherry on top of the cake - beats, bass and funk.

Review: Italian producer Turbojazz has already found homeground success as part of the Futureground collective and now he's being introduced to a wider audience thanks to established nu-funk label GAMM. Here we get two tracks of low-slung grooves, organic, authentic and totally vintage sounding - "Que Pasa" is built around an incessant guitar lick, hazy beats and soaring Euro vocals. "Nebulosa" on the other hand is a jazzier affair, less retro and more based around loungey Latin loops. We think we'll be hearing more from this guy.

Review: Originally released in 1999, Stanton Warriors' remix of Zac Toms' "Bring Me Down" was one of the West Country duo's earliest outings. Springing and vibing with turn-of-the-century UKG class, the original represents the act's roots with groove and distinction and still sounds amazing to this day. Rebooted 15 years later, it's still as fresh and funky. Highlights across this generous package include the jazzy keys on Odysseus's Dark House remix, the deep, dubby Serious Danger-style chugging vibe of Origin's remix and of course the swaggering chest-press breakbeats of the 2014 mix. Make no mistakes; this will never bring you down.

Also Kymberley Kennedy lends her soulful vocals to choppy breaks nugget "Dead Ringer". So, that'll be another insane banger then.

Review: Things have been a bit quiet from retro funk producer B Jam since his bumper packed eight-track EP last year on Midnight Riot. We can all relax now, as he's back with four new tracks under the attention grabbing title "Dog Slap". The rolling electro-funk stomper "Hide Out" gets things going nicely, and from there we see The Real Thing's disco staple "Can You Feel The Force" get a rocket up its backside and "The Magician" provide some breaky, rubber bass thrills, before "Talk About" wraps things up in a gloriously chopped up '80s electro-soul fashion.

Review: Midnight Riot boss Yam Who? isn't one to rest on his laurels, nope he's always out hunting new talent and here he's bagged Jam Master for an eponymous debut on the nu-disco imprint. Over the five tracks supplied here, the overriding vibe is all about lounging in a neon-lit Miami Vice-era nightclub, albeit one more favoured by Tubbs than Crockett. Shimmering digital synth funk is the name of the game and it's a joy to behold, with the best largely instrumental bits of anonymous mid '80s electro-soul edited and looped into a deliriously glamorous haze. Slick.

Review: With just one other record consigned to the project it's not often we witness label boss Jimpster turning his hand to his discofied alias on Delusions Of Grandeur. Any keen followers of the label will be more than satisfied with the vibe on offer, as a slower kind of house groove takes hold for three tracks infused with spiritual sampling, starting with the wistful, soulful tones of "Painted Lady". "Lumpsucker" has a stronger electronic vein running through its core, matching Chicago drums and snaking arpeggios with washes of chords to keep the mood mellow, before "Camberwell Beauty" scrubs out the edges and drifts deep down into a sumptuous pillow of laconic house.
