Review: Heist invites New York's Hoogs to the Calypso crew with one of the label's most generous EPs to date. Those aware of Hoogs' 15 year repertoire will already know what to expect; cross-board ruffage with a cheeky US twist on the classic UK jump-up foundation. Heady, sharper and big in the lean riff game, highlights include the downward spiral of bass paranoia on "Gorilla Glue", the rattling jungle freshness of "What You Say" and the higher-toned bassline trippery of "Midnight Killing". Audio insanity.

Review: More VA manoeuvres from the perennial Natty camp. The label has recruited new names and they're all packing ammo. Label bosses Cabin Fever reboot with old sparring partner Saxxon for an electrified brock-out "Clubhopper" before four acts make their label debut: DJ Hybrid applies a skillishly simplistic and highly timeless bassline stepper, Version cooks up with rattling wasps-in-tin bassline and warped retro sci-fi tones, Sureshock looks to the stars through a pair of Klute's glasses and a soaring big system vocal, while Kenji twists up with a serious space jam.

Review: Bio mainstay DJ Premium doesn't do EPs by halves; no pussyfooting around with slim-line one or two trackers... He always licks up a feast. Case in point: "Sour Diesel" a collection of peaktime jump-up slammers that buzz with off-the-wall sonics and brute force. From the classic rave feels of "Keep On" to the grizzly gutter-sounds of "The Gallows" and "Soul Diesel" to the hardcore-meets-Prototypes style laser bending of "Jump Up". Just like its sticky namesake this "Sour Diesel" is actually super sweet.

Review: Four of Low Down Deep's heaviest club cuts over the last two years enjoy a new coat of VIP arms, bringing them all back up to date. Already in demand due to dubplate pressure, each cut adds new bassline and riff twists that will cause knowing gun fingers across the dance. Logan D & Dominator's "Giant Killer Bees" goes switch-heavy, Turno's "Gladiator" enjoys an emotional explosion on the breakdown, Majistrate's already tongue-in-cheek "Amsterdam" gets even sillier while Heist's infamous "Moose Knuckle" keeps its sci-fi haze intact while folding the bass riff inside itself. Serious VIP business.

Review: Lately Leeds' Deelicious has seen his loose and groovy tunes grace the likes of Sound Exhibitions and Disco Fruit. Here he rolls out five sizzling new bangers. The urgent slice of socially conscious funk, "Lonely Town Lonely Street", kicks things off, "Trust Me" incorporates housier filtered loops into the mix and the title track is celebratory slice of disco-pop with some ace bloc-rocking breaks and punk-funk bass work. Elsewhere we enter orbit with the melodramatic sci-fi boogie of "Mechanical Body" and "Change Your Mind" is an amazing example of early underground dance music reconfigured by a 21st century perspective.

Review: Serial Killaz are beginning to expand their premiership fraternity and they've picked the right man to set the agenda; Leaf's already been heard in the sets of Rene LaVice, TC, Noisia, Hype, Marky and loads more. You can tell; each of these lean constructions carries no flab... Just concentrated detail on every sparse element. The block percussion on "Monsoon", the Critical-style robofunk of "Advice", the sample savviness and pneumatic drum pressure of "Wu Style" while the bassline on "Gunman" literally barks orders over a shattered amen. There's a reason the big guys are playing his tracks.

Review: Moscow based disco label Vehicle is at it again and delivers the goods as always. They've taken the razor to some oldies but indeed goodies on the Summer Boogie EP. There's quite an all star cast on offer here if we have ever seen one. American/Puerto Rican latin jazz legend Ray Barretto appears with his classic "Fulltime Paradise", the soulman himself Roy Ayers appears also with "Fever". Honorable mentions also to Greek sex symbol Denis Roussos with his majestically sleazy "M-Time" and The Beatles aka The Bugs with "Srgnt Ppr's".. err exucse me? Oh don't worry, groove on!

Review: San Diego badmen Sub Killaz take the wheel for Liondub's not-stop EP joyride. It's gnarly business from the off as "Raised By The Block" and "Faces Of War" both hit hard with devilish riff dynamics. "Only You" strips the vibe back to a '99 sharp step and a well-tamed cushiony sub while "9 Pound Hammer" pokes and stabs gleefully with Annix-style keenness and "Salt Water" winds us down with shimmering piano strokes and hazy R&B style vocal snippets. Something for everyone.

Review: Batten down the hatches! A "Torpedo" is set to wreak havoc upside your area and, with all its trippy vocal twists, it's clear Vacuum doesn't give two hoots how much damage he causes. Deeper into the torrential storm we go... "Stop Them" will tear a hole in your roof with its Prototypes riff flourishes, "Fadeout" could create a sink hole with its Hazard-style bass hook before filling it with epicness on the chorus while "Windshield" will protect us from future brutal acts of mother nature with its bouncy halftime hook. The EP comes complete with an exclusive jump-up slammer "Combat". Pure black belt business.

Review: Todd Terje & The Olsens come correct with their first recorded material after an extended bout of them treating festival audiences to some of the Norwegian's best-loved material, not to mention some killer cover versions. Indeed it's the latter, oft-derided method of recording that forms the basis of this delightfully-presented double pack (we love a good Big Trouble In Little China reference) as Terje and the group rip through renditions of some disco standards from Martin Circus, YMO, Vangelis and more. Given Terje's lengthy range of official and under-the-counter edits, news of this new project makes perfect sense to us. In addition to these cover versions, Olsen have also commissioned some remixes with arch Terje colluder Prins Thomas involved along with Comeme artist Daniel Maloso.

Review: Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger's recent Vinyl TV show depicted the birth of New York black party culture with the mighty Kool Herc at the helm. Here Dr Packer riffs off that same imagery too, even if his edits are more in the disco vein than that of Herc's hard funk breaks. There are a whopping six edits to wrap your ears around here, highlights include sensuous 70s boogie, complete with electro bassline, of "Disco Lovin", the protracted hiNRG New Order loops of "Monday Blues" and the shimmering, dry ice soul of "Chocolate Boogie". Fun music for fun times!

Review: Ruffneck Ting ante-up with the first volume of the Xtraordinary League Of Junglists album. A family affair with tag-teams galore, the Bristol murk merchants divide and conquer on every cut; The Force & Verdikt get mucky with a big bassline jump-up, Jinx & Aries build an mischievous Q&A a la DJ Die or Roni 20 years ago while Jinx & Dazee play a game of Asteroids inside our minds with the sci-fi bassline that wouldn't have gone amiss in a Moving Fusion set 15 years ago. K Jah & Vytol wind up the dispatch with a clunkier iron age riff and a dizzying array of basses. Xtraordinary indeed... Bring on volume two!

Review: French legend Ludovic Llorca is back under the Art Of Tones guise for the always impressive Local Talk. Acid soul funk? You bet! Take a listen to I "Just Can't (Get Over It)" and you'll believe there is such a thing. On the flip, the smooth and soulful groove continues on "Dirty Stories" which has an undeniably French touch about it, with good use wonky synths, emotive strings and SP1200 style vocal cut ups. Deepness in the vein of Pepe Braddock or Chateau Flight.

Review: While his live appearances are placing him on the radar of ever more enlightened house heads the world over, Kink is showing no signs of slacking on the production front either. The clue is in his name, and as ever there are plenty of subtly shimmying tricks in the Bulgarian mastermind's grooves to keep the stiffest of dancers shaking on the off-beat. "Valentine's Groove" is a masterclass in jazz-inflected deep house, all fuzzy chord stabs and badass bass for the funkiest shape flingers. "Strings" meanwhile reaches for a more emotive feeling, lashing on the Detroit romanticism to a wonderfully bombastic end.

Review: After working relentlessly for three years to establish the label, the crew behind Luv Shack has been enjoying some much-needed time off. Suitably refreshed, they return with a first EP of 2016: a fine three-tracker from Space Echo (AKA label co-founder Lee Stevens and fellow Austrian Christoph 'caTekk' Abele). Happily, there's plenty to admire, from the loopy, smoky, blues-house shuffle of opener "Go Down" - where infectious, impassioned vocal samples ride a loopy, string-drenched groove - to the fantastically righteous '70s-funk-goes-acid stomp of closer "Rainbow Power". "Rare Function", another trip into chunky disco-house territory that boasts some notable electric piano samples, is also quietly impressive.

Review: Razor N Tape has been predictably coy about the identity of new signing Tom of Brooklyn. Whoever the New York man of mystery is, he's certainly capable of crafting hot-to-trot edits that pay due reverence to their obscure source material. There's much to admire on this fine debut EP, from the chopped-up, late night hustle of the delightfully percussive "Disco Maniac", to the loopy disco-funk swing of "Dreamin' Again". Elsewhere, the Big Apple scalpel fiend makes merry on the low-slung, delay-laden disco drum workout "Heavy Dense", and pays tribute to sweltering temperatures and long, lazy days on the shuffling standout "Summerjam". Superb stuff, all told.

Review: Nachtbraker's latest expansive EP for Heist Recordings - his first release of 2016 - boasts a host of hot, floor-friendly excursions. The EP's first two missives offer two distinctly different takes on disco-house - the throbbing sub-bass, extra percussion hits and early Daft Punk riffs of "Gotta Act To React", versus the smooth, classic disco-sampling loop-jam "Pollo Con Pollo" - before the woozy, drawn out "Intermezzlow" allows the Dutch producer to showcase the groovy, downtempo side to his work. The accompanying "Intermezzo" is a jazzy, percussive deep house variation on the same sun-kissed theme, while "Gotta Act To React (Float Mix)" re-casts the EP's opening tune as a hazy deep house bumper.

As per usual label boss KS French is up first, with the urgent fizzy shuffle of "The Disco Way" (a Carl Bean re-edit), before Mr Given Raw delivers both the tough and brassy funk stomp of "Got Competition Baby" and the hard disco house of "Bless Soul". Lastly the meat in this boogie sandwich is provided by Le Smooth, who provides spacey synths and clavinet grooves on "Dance Baby Dance".

There's some Salsoul Orchestra sounding big band disco on "Sweet Sensation" And they're not wrong: That Needs An Edit! Chic's "Soup For One" gets a re-splice on "Mojo Soup"; now that definitely needed an edit!

Review: Zero T and Fierce on Metalheadz: Few words are required, we all know we're dealing with uncut premium kit here. "Bonesmen" is all about the dark tech groove, the way the drums switch with subtlety, the persistent sub and classic Headz FX rotate through the spectrum. "In Circles" flips the vibe with a lighter tone in the pads, a sweet deep dream atmosphere on the blink-and-miss breakdown and chirpier, looser, funkier drums. Two cuts, both true to the craft.

Review: Nebraska has been a busy boy of late, delivering killer material on both Mister Saturday Night and Delusions of Grandeur. Here he dons his favourite balaclava and joins Detroit Swindle's Heist. He begins with the groovy, loose and low-slung disco-house bump of "Khan's Bargain", which is also brilliantly remixed by obscure boogie specialist Tom Noble. The tempo increases dramatically on the wide-eyed deep house sprint of "The Blues", before Nebraska enhances his Balearic house credentials thanks to the blissful synthesizer arpeggio lines and swirling chords of "It Won't Be Long". The spacey, string-drenched shuffle of "Varkala" draws a fine EP to a close.

Each one exploring different sides of the dance - from the jungle drum flickers and mid 90s sub funk of "Minus 43" to iPhone snapping "Pacin'" by way of the shoe-hurling "Rock N' Roll" - this is Bou's most comprehensive showcase so far and it sheds light on a clutch of new talent, too with Jamoh, Dispoze, High Impact, Slee and Solix all delivering dopeness.

Review: Quite remarkably, Obas Nenor's 2015 debut 12", My Way Home, appeared on Moodyman's Mahogani Music imprint. Since then, he's released hot material on Strictly Rhythm and Sol Power Sound. Here, he pops up on Detroit Swindle's Heist imprint with another strong collection of hazy, low-slung deep house shufflers. He begins with the loose, cheesecake-rich warmth of "The Door", before dipping the tempo a little on the funk-infused groove jam "Glimpse Of Light". There's a pleasingly bluesy feel about the bold and melodious "UV Lights", while "Wakee" offers a nu disco-influenced take on Detroit Beatdown. Mr Tophat's dense, deliciously percussive remix of "The Door" completes an excellent package.

Review: Bristol's X-Ray Ted is about the light and fun party jams, no cool digger's obscurities welcome here. Here he serves four guaranteed floor fillers starting with "Mild Mild West", a loose-limbed disco rendition of the Good The Bad and The Ugly theme, next "Too Good" sees Aretha Franklin get a house-shaped whoosh under her backside, "EveryMoney" meanwhile sees some vintage soul fused with classic Kelis and ODB and finally "Hold Tight" sees the show close with some sizzling neon-flecked arpeggiated disco..

Review: Stee Downes and Lovebirds' are old pals, and first joined forces for a 12" on Winding Road Records five years ago. Their joint effort on this fine EP, "Love's Like Dancing" is something of a cheery, mood-enhancing treat. A slick vocal number that should suit both disco and house floors, it sounds like classic Blackjoy fused with Lovebirds' usual brand of colourful deep house positivity. Crazy P man Jim Baron dons his now familiar Ron Basejam guise on the remix, delivering a bouncy nu-disco/deep house fusion. Lovebirds goes solo on the woozy, Rhodes-laden deep house haziness of "Feel The Bern", while the accompanying Talkbox Edit adds woozy, robotic vocals into the mix whilst retaining the track's original feel and structure.

Review: For those who don't know, Hypho is a rising talent in the bass game and his quest to reach the top level has gotten closer thanks to this latest injection of low frequencies for the 877 label. "Wartime" is the perfect lead tune, a string-led pseudo grime instrumental with a perfectly executed percussive rhythm, and "Pinch" follows a similar path thanks to its slithering beats. There is a collaboration with Squane on "Hack", a futuristic grime roller with a mean collection of beats and hollow melodies, which is followed by Majora's remix of "Wartime", a more uplifting version of the tune, and a Vital Techniques reinterpretation of "Pinch". Smoking bangers guaranteed!

Review: Veteran French producer, Bruno 'Patchworks' Hovart has been creating beautifully crafted vintage-sounding soul, funk and disco for about two decades now. However "No Stoppin' Dat Rockin'" marks his first release for a number of years, and it's good to have him back. This time he offers up five new quality jams; highlights including the delicious virtuosity of his sumptuous Michael Jackson cover "Rock With You (Orchestral Version), the title track's deep and jazzy analogue house and the pulsating retro disco-tech of "Juno Disco". C'est magnifique!

They're not wrong; this one is reminiscent of MCDE's Raw Cuts series; pure disco cut-up goodness. Ponty Mython's "Lovin' You Is A Pleasure" goes for more of the tropical, low-slung house vibe to fuel exotic daydream fantasies while Newcastle's NY*AK does slo-mo house good a proper covered in the right amount of dust and smokiness.

Review: Kenny Ken's Mix & Blen returns with a rare two-piece from the legendary bossman himself. Teaming up with emerging Dread-affiliate Margaman, the end result is two immaculate jungle designs fit for all rolling styles of D&B DJ. "Nuff Gal" runs amok with a big reggae vocal style and ruffage bass while "Tek It Easy" positions our focus around the detailed drum work where no 16 is repeated and things get rather twisted mid-way. Spotless.

Review: Almost three years old and To Have & Have Not continues to spawn fresh creativity. Blocks & Escher fire up the remix engine with a thunderstruck live drum shake-up of Jubei & Goldie's "The Prayer". Skeppy follows with a slightly swung twist to "Incognito" that thrusts Jerome's vocals further under the icy spotlight while Ulterior Motive add a little funk with cymbal splashes and reverbed FX on the synths. Finally Om Unit brings us back to where it all started as the foundation angst of "The Prayer" is simmered down into a cosmic halftime stew with a vibrant amen aftertaste. To not have "To Have & Have Not" would be criminal.

Review: Brooklyn's Razor-N-Tape reach out to the Lowlands and coax Hans Peeman into donning his Junktion alias for a new four-track EP on their Razor-N-Tape Reserve label. Living up to it's dignified and reserved billing, this release on the offshoot finds the Nijmegen-based Peeman laying down some luscious, colourful disco vibes that will brighten up any sun laden afternoon on the terrace. Title track "Hot & Bothered" sets the tone with a summery vibe underpinned by some bumping drums, whilst "I'm wishin'" glides with a subtle house bump and some wonderful vocal touches. "Fling Cleaning" sees Peeman veer off into disco chug territory, whilst "Visions of You" ends the EP on a soulful note.

Review: Following recent excursions on Masterworks Music and Rebel Hearts, Kiu D returns to Hotbox Boogie, a label he's graced multiple times over the years. As usual, the four tracks on offer - three of which were co-produced by pal MKV - blend extensive samples from original disco and boogie records, with original musical elements. He begins with the clipped guitars, familiar vocal samples, and throbbing nu-disco synth bass of "Funky People", before delivering a breezier chunk of cheery disco-house in the shape of "Love Player". "Spank" puts a heavyweight disco rocket under the backside of Jimmy 'Bo' Horne classic "Spank", before the package is completed by the Bohannon-in-dub throb of "Funky People (Labour of Love Dub)".

Review: Building on the momentum of his comeback EP "Back On The Edge" earlier this year, Shifta returns with four more angular hurters. "Rubber Grip" takes us into the future with its techy bass texture, jumpy riff and sharp splashes of amen slappage while "Don't Move" takes us back in time to V's prime when Krust and Die dished out history-making workouts. "Going Down" continues the energetic tech-toned funk while "Leviathan" strip teases down to its flick knife two-step and 97-style paranoid drone bass. Clearly Shifta doesn't just have history, but he knows how to use it, too.

Review: There is an assurance of filter-rich funk of the highest quality when the Rebel Hearts crew roll into town, and it's no different as Mr Given Raw returns to the fray with a new salvo of glimmering disco edit jewels. Amongst the essential jams given a respectful re-rub is the perennial "Wheel Me Out" from Was (Not Was), here buffed up into an elongated whirlwind of poppin' bass and carnival drums. That's just the tip of this party-starting iceberg, where no classic is off limits and the focus is placed on all the sweetest spots in the original groove.

Review: Reading's bass champ Sunday Roast has loaded up with five dancefloor straddling beasts here on the Barbarian EP. Never one to take prisoners, he's not about to start now. Highlights include opener "Core', a fire breathing bass dragon of a thing with cowbells and bounce in all the right places, "Freak" is a 4 x 4 peak time jam that goes heavy on the 808s claps but it's the sizzling bass throbs and housey pianos riffs of "Day Pitch" that really wins this battle.

"Got To Get" is a bawdy, swingin' swagger of vintage disco-rock, whilst "Get It On" introduces tougher French house beats and loops to the mix. Lastly "Brown Groove" turns its filters to 11 for a low-slung cocktail house jam. Groovy!

Review: Like its' predecessors, the fifth installment in Freerange's ongoing 20th anniversary EP series contains some killer new cuts. Fittingly, it's label boss Jimpster who leads the charge, encouraging us to sway in the afternoon sunshine on the deep, tactile and woozy "Ceilings" (which also features evocative vocals from Laura Barrick). The water-side, alfresco dancing vibe is accentuated by Shur-I-Kan on "Beach Life", a hazy, wide-eyed trip into symphonic deep house territory that ranks amongst his finest productions to date. Elsewhere, Brian Ring melds Mascara-clad '80s new wave and early Chicago house on the fine "Love Taken Over", while Clavis layers dreamy marimba melodies on top of huggable deep house grooves on the delightful "Cydalise".

For Bae - (6:26) 119 BPM

Review: Scott Moncrief's quietly confident debut album Columbising has been one of the sleeper hits of 2016, with the Sheffield-based East Midlander serving up an effortlessly soulful set that joins the dots between hip-hop, broken beat, boogie, and U.S deep house. This follow-up EP showcases one of the album's highlights, Dave Aju collaboration "Turn It Out." Aju takes the deliciously loose and live-sounding original - all jumpy clavinet lines, swinging deep house drums and urgent vocals - and turns it into a stripped-back, heavily electronic broken house gem. Elsewhere, Lawrence Guy delivers a wonderfully warm, rich and soulful deep house interpretation of Erik Rico hook-up "Boogie Down", before Moncrief enlists the honeyed-tonsils and impeccable piano playing skills of regular collaborator Pete Simpson, on the jazzy gospel-house deepness of "For Bae".
