Review: Name a label who hasn't succeumbed to Serum's charms. You can't, can you? Infecting the world with a special blend of charged-up basslines and hardline percussion, he manages to hit the perfect mid-way point between old fashioned skanking and on-point production values. Careful not to overcook the method, he leaves enough rough with the smooth to give off that uniquely raw dancefloor-ready sound. Each track on this EP jabs and ducks ready for a fight but its "Death Wish" that really steals the show with its dark 'n' filthy bass and creeped-out B-movie atmos. Get ready to get freaky.

Review: Serious edit heat from the young Parisian who's always on the Pulse: Three well known funk soul classics, Rhyze's "Relax & Enjoy" gets an upbeat, roof-raising treatment with full emphasis on the instantly distinctive groove. Spinners' "It's A Shame" enjoys a sun-splashed Brazilian treatment while GQ's "Shake" gets a turbo-charged shake-up that makes it more floor friendly than a thick shag carpet. And that's friendly. Get to know.

You Know Who - (6:06) 106 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Dutch DJ and producer Olivier Boogie has been doing his thing in Amsterdam, largely without credit, for the best part of a decade. He's previously released both original productions and re-edits, with two contributions to a split Lumberjacks In Hell release back in 2012 standing out. Here he returns - at long last - with an edit EP of his own for Whiskey Disco. There's naturally much to admire, from the soaring strings, undulating bass and disco-funk hustle of "Got To Have Loving" and jaunty Rodriguez re-rub "Can't Get Away" being particularly potent. He also delivers a dash of head-nodding boogie ("You Know Who"), and turns a little-known funk jam into a shuffling house hustler ("Lost In The Crowd").

Review: Danish deep house talent Paxton Fettel unleashes three disco-infused house cuts through disco specialists Apersonal Music. Fettel joins the family of the label's fine roster of retro-tone music makers backed up with a Jimpster remix. Always in the search of timeless music pieces the Spanish imprint sure found a fine exponent of their unique trippy melodic universe with Fettel's offer on this EP. "She's All Right", "Sundown, as the Beat Gently Skips" and "Tripped Out" make a solid statement of nu-disco editing in a house fashion, new to the artist but with a solid experience on the label's trajectory. To push the boundaries of Fettel's sound no other than high-fi music creator Jimpster to remix "She's All Right", opening a special space for the track on any dance floor filled with raving house lovers.

We Mean Disco - "Paradise (Vienna International ReGroove)" - (8:02) 100 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having previously mined the worlds of disco, boogie and funk for inspiration, Smooth Operators sees the We Mean Disco crew change tack. Instead of their usual, party-friendly fare, we get a quartet of Sade revisions, with some of the sultry singer's finest moments getting the rework treatment. So, Mr Matrix delivers an undulating, super-smooth deep house version of "Couldn't Love You More" (complete with thrilling analogue bass), KidPariz turns "Hang Onto Your Love" into a loopy, mostly instrumental chugger, and We Mean Disco give "Paradise" the sweet, lo-slung, midtempo disco-house treatment. Best of all, though, is Dan K's chunky, sax-laden rework of the anthem-like "Smooth Operator"; a sing-along deep house classic in the making.

Review: The serene stylings of Austrian drum and bass maestro Paul SG have been soothing thousands across the world and on his latest release for Jazzsticks, there's a definite sense of the good old days returning to his sound. "Deegee" starts the EP off a rolling tip with bass straight from the old school, followed closely by "This Is Jazz" which, as expected, lifts things up with soulful jazzy vibes. "Chief Grand Master" takes that old James Brown sample to new levels of old school introspection and "Ballad of a Nubian Princess" is as sultry as they come, rolling out smooth and lush. Final track "Love Theme" is dramatic and deep with a bassy kick, just how we like it. Get some emotive rollers in your collection, you definitely won't regret it.

Capitan Futuro - "Club Warzone" - (4:41) 125 BPM
from $1.49
Review: For this latest release on the long-running Chopshop imprint, Greece-based bossman DJ Butcher has decided to flip the script. Instead of delivering cheeky disco re-edits, Dope Hip Cuts revisits the now overlooked world of classic hip-hop mash-ups. Ill Advised's excellent opener "Grunt Without The Noise", for example, expertly fixes a Public Enemy acapella to a sweaty, horn-heavy funk groove, while Captain Futuro's "Break Me Off" and "Club Warzone" turn more recent hip-hop and R&B jams into toe-tapping, head-nodding disco-meets-jazz-funk dancefloor jams. Phat Camel impresses, too, with "I Wish", which doffs a cap to Yam Who's infamous early 2000s reworks of contemporary soul, hip-hop and R&B killers.

Review: Killyjoy's back and he's brandishing an ode to the girls of his hometown Nottingham. "Gyalist Riddim" proves that wobble ain't dead yet, with the original and its three mixes going heavy on the full on fat low end. The title track adds some serious snare roll chaos to the mix, whilst Deadbeat adds a slammin' 4x4 twist. Asa & Sorrow keep it hard and underground and Doctor Jeep wraps up the package with some deliciously doomy tropical vibes.

Sad Future - (6:08) 110 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Serbian disco/house type Tonbe seems to reserve the Loshmi alter-ego for some of his finest reworks; killer edits of often obscure or overlooked material that shows due reverence to the source material. That's certainly the case here, as he works his way through a variety of styles over the course of six suitably hot edits. So, he treats us to some soaring '80s soul revivalism ("Real Love"), jaunty but tight, piano-laden electrofunk ("Be My Love"), surging, high-octane, disco-funk (the string laden madness that is "Depends On You"), and even a dash of punchy boogie-rap (the brilliant "Sad Future", which comes complete with an excellent spoken vocal and some terrifically sleazy sax solos).

Played by: Dusty Tonez
Review: Booty Fruit badman Funk Ferret steps up to man the Goodgroove machine with a low-end lurking five piece. "Don't Stop" is a classic turntablist joint, loaded with cool samples and a burpy bassline. "Keep It Real" is a wholesome disco flexer complete with some very polished slinky bass while "The Anthem" is an understated funk frenzy with slap bass, 8-bit trills and great use of samples. "Give It Up" is one for the bass-hungry as the low-end takes centre stage with all sorts of cool production touches and reverse twists, very much like a Featurecast joint. Finally we hit "Soul City", a horn-heaving strut-out layered with dense bass textures and loads of cool attention to detail on every twist. Genuinely fresh.

Review: Australian re-edit king, Dr Packer, loves his '80s electro-soul and funk, and here he kicks off 2015 with a slammin' rejig of Al Jarreau's slinky digi-soul classic "Boogie Down". There's a further four jams to check out here too, including a cool, Balearic rework of Sheila E's "Love Bizarre", a totally dubbed out version of "Walking On Sunshine" and the synthy, meandering disco house joint, "Take My Love".

Love You Too Much - (6:53) 105 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Copenhagen-based crate digger Ziggy Phunk has built up a big following on SoundCloud for his boogie, electrofunk and '80s soul reworks. Here he pops up on Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint with a white-hot collection of six of his finest. While seasoned diggers and old heads may spot some of the source material, for the most part he's breathing new life into long-forgotten gems. There's plenty to get excited about, from the breezy piano solos, rubbery bass and bongo-laden grooves of the impeccable "All Night Long", to the clipped guitars, darting synths and Jheri curls of "Every Girl". Arguably best of all, though, is the saucer-eyed, loved-up sweetness of closer "Love You Too Much", a prime slice of yearning '80s soul tweaked to perfection with the addition of some top notch use of delays.

Review: Amsterdam's Detroit Swindle duo head back to the Heist imprint after an impressive string of releases on labels such as Tsuba Records and Dirt Crew Recordings, and classy, tech-ready house is the order. "Allright (We'll Be)" is a disco-fuelled house gem with one of those vocal samples that'll log itself in your brain, while "Pursuit" is stranger, more wonky and a right burner when it comes to its percussion. "Heads Down", as the name suggests, is nuttin' but a club bomb and one hell of a DJ tool!

Review: If you're after a slice of dubby rolling drum and bass perfection, Mark System has just made your day. Set to release his debut LP on legendary cult label Exit Records this pair of devastatingly dark tracks come as a warning of what's to come. "Optix" has the presence and swagger of old school Photek, and "Pursuit" picks up a dangerous urgency from knife-sharp percussion that screams on-point production. This man is on fire. Get yourself acquainted.

In "Stoned", Calibre calms his intensity levels for a chill roller packed with lucid dreamy sounds and tight percussion. Riya joins old friends Total Science to lend her sultry vocals to a crisp, soulful stepper in "Walk The Same Lines" and Utopia henchman Mako

Get a load of this: Icicle and Friction have been in the studio together and created the sound of two planets colliding in the form of "Crucifix". Luckily this meeting of minds has been fully documented by Shogun Audio and packed up nicely into a perfect two-piece release. On the other side, Friction joins the ever inspirational Technimatic fellas for "Floating Frames", a tune so sweet it could bring entire civilisations to their knees. So it's fair to say this release has all aspects of universal domination covered.

Pontchartrain - "Get Over You" - (7:26) 116 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco imprint continues to be one of the more reliable sources of disco and boogie re-edits. Rather predictably, this latest installment in the series is bristling with high-grade dancefloor material. There's some riotous, party-minded disco-funk from newcomer Scott M, who delivers a killer touch-up of Vernon Burnch's "Get Up", and a thrillingly low-slung chunk of rolling disco-house from VinylAddicted and SMQ. While Pontcharain also provides a tightened-up, filter-heavy tweak of France Joli's Prelude classic "Gonna Get Over You" - heavy on the delay, and with the urgent hustle of house - it's the contribution from Canadian stalwart Eddie C that stands out. A smooth, midtempo cut-up of a lesser-known rollerboogie jam, it rises and falls in all the right places.

Review: Fracture create some of the most experimental drum and bass out there, so bringing forward their dancehall-eclectic-inspired sounds with the help of Mancunian producer Chimpo was only going to create disturbances of the best kind within the scene. "From Early" takes the Fracture dancehall sound to the next level but it's in "Hard Food" that the rave and hardcore madness kicks in and things start getting a little wavy from there on in. To tidy up, "From Early" gets a reduction mix from Fracture, stripping back the shimmying and getting right down to the bare, bassy bones. A legendary collaboration in the making.

Here, through Hotbox Records, they deliver their three latest jams - the deliciously fluid and jazzy Latin-disco-isms of "I'm Gonna Get You Baby", the uber slick, spacey disco-cocktail-house of "Get On Down" and the sumptuously languid Balearica of "Feelin' Alright". Smart!

Review: DRS working with Enei and LSB was music to our ears before we even heard the track. Drop Tyler Daley's blistering vocals into the mix too and you've got yourself a release that's 100 per cent drum and bass purity. "The View" starts things on a euphoric high with LSB rolling out those lush vibes he does so well. Tyler adds his vocals and what results is a cinematic love story played out at 170bpm. Enei prefers things strictly dark so when "Count To Ten" starts its militant march it's evident there's no escape. Abstract, tribal and earth-shatteringly heavy, DRS whips up the mood with agile aggression. Two tracks, two worlds. Choose carefully.

Review: Freerange Records kick off the first part of their Double Century vinyl edition with four finely honed cuts of prime contemporary deep house that reflect the ever evolving tastes of the label. Boss man Jimpster takes the lead spot with the cyclical and spiritual "Head Spin" while by way of contrast Matt Masters and Pippo Ceretti bring a much more minimal approach to their tribal-flavoured "Xenophilia". Andy Hart has a more classic, smooth deep house approach on "MYLNY" which comes on rousing and romantic with its heartfelt string lines, and then Shur-I-Khan throws down a moody beat track to get you loose and limbered up.

Label founder Badboe takes the lead, working a Bussa Bus vocal over a warm upbeat summer jam groove. Father Funk follows with a Natisni vocal and a '70s-style Lalo Schifrin OST groove. Dig deeper for piano-pumping diva-driven soul on Timothy Wisdom's "Bad Mother" and a superior EP-closing ode to Grand Puba via Tom Showtime. Brought the funk back recently?

With full focus locked on the heart of the party, there's no beard grazing crate stroking here, just straight up party exciters.

Review: The honour of fronting the latest installment of Katakana's Edits series has been bestowed on the Bergerac of funk himself, Jersey's Zemerald (aka Joseph Kavanagh). Without missing a beat he rises to the challenge and delivers five expertly sliced reworks, with some of our faves including "Soul Girl" a sassy, stompin' retort to the more famous Soul Man, the raw R&B of "Candy" and the guilty pleasures of "Wicked Drummer", a cheeky update of the classic Funky Drummer break.

from $1.49
Review: San Sebastian-based twosome Jaime Sagastibeltza and Borja Campion have been doing the rounds for sometime, though their releases have been limited (a single on Is It Balearic, and a collection of edits for Los Grandes). Here they attempt to step up to the next level via an excellent, coldwave and Italo influenced chunk of atmospheric, darkroom nu-disco for Nein. The excellent original version - think Brian Ferry style vocals, relentless low register guitars and murky synthesizer arpeggios - is joined by a quartet of remixes. Arguably most impressive is Factory Floor's revision, which blackens the track further via woozy analogue electronics, bongo-laden rhythms and psychedelic melodies. Elsewhere, Rodion goes all macabre acid house, and Reverso 68 turn the track into a surprisingly cheery Balearic disco chugger.

Sidestep - (6:48) 121 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: It's been ten years since Michael Reinboth's Compost label launched its Black Label offshoot, initially as a way to release more house and techno. A decade on, the imprint is stronger than ever and over 120 releases deep. This 124th EP draws together the label's past and future, with Compost veteran Rainer Truby joining forces with recent Local Talk graduate, Italian 20-something Corrado Bucci. The two tracks are, predictably, rather sumptuous, with "Step Forward" offering a heartwarming blend of typically Germany deep house groovery and the warm, organic, live elements Truby is so famous for. There's a slight Latin shuffle about the beats on "Sidestep", a pudding-rich exploration of classic US deep house smothered in toasty chords and hazy vocal samples.

Review: What else did you expect from the man like Ed Solo but blistering fire from every angle? "Here I Come" punches out a thumping bassline through vampy keys and on point junglist vibes courtesy of vintage Barrington Levy vocalisations. Included is a vocal-free mix for times when only straight up vibes will do. "Ganja Smuggling" brings up the other side with Eek A Mouse sampled over rounded off bubbling bass with huge soundsystem style. Larger than life and down to skank - you know that's what Jungle Cakes do.

from $1.49
Review: it's a fact long understood that anything coming out of the Spectrasoul sound lab will drip with soulful magnificence. This latest release, then, still sticking with the Shogun family, is a perfect performance of emotional drum and bass. Laid-back bass belies an undercurrent of emotional urgency in "Aways" thanks to heartfelt vocals and driving percussion. "I Don't Mind" stomps with a heavier heart, moving fast and low with extra emphasis on a big, dubby bassline. Perfection as always from two guys at the top of their game.

Review: If the sight of these three names together on a track doesn't fill you with chills and anticipation, hand your HD25s back to the front desk and be on your way. Break and DLR's VIP of "Murmur" does not disappoint despite high expectations thanks to severe punches in the snare region and plenty of twisted distortion writhing around in the low end. Continuing the depravity, "Tugboat" gets a moneyshot VIP, pushing driving bass and that cheeky horn blasting through a thick fog of bass. "Regeneration"'s metamorphosis mix is much more concerned with the crackpot sound design side of drum and bass, stepping hard with more than enough alien drum patterns to keep it interesting. Massive release.

Review: Warrington-based 80s Child is turning into a one-man re-edit machine, delivering floor-friendly touch-ups of synth-heavy electrofunk, 80s soul and boogie jams on a regular basis. There's naturally much to admire about this third EP for regular home Midnight Riot, from the rolling boogie-house revision of stone cold classic "Flashback" - all carefully cultivated loops, filters and metronomic pulse - to the chiming synthesizer melodies, vocal breakdowns and delay-laden drums of "This Love". Arguably best of all, though, is the heavyweight swing, looped vocals and killer synth bass flex of "Run From My Love", one of his strongest rubs to date.

Review: Kiko Navarro has dropped his signature style of funky, soulful house on pretty much any label worth releasing on - Nite Grooves, Third Ear and even King Street Sounds to name a few! He returns on Local Talk with two new cuts, both of them ripe and ready for hip-swaying vibes. "Dope High" is an itchy, Kenny Dope kinda tune boasting a totally swung-out percussion and a militant groove for the DJ's. You've also got "Nea Kameni", a gorgeous house number with old-school synth keys, and it's remixed by none other than Chicago house don Glenn Underground who strips it back, jacks it down and transforms it into a funky and laid-back kinda tune. Local Talk delivering the goods!

Review: It promises to be yet another interesting year for Dial Records with an upcoming compilation and the tantalising prospect of a debut album from White Material man DJ Richard on the horizon. Before that, it's Herr Flugel that kicks proceedings off with a new three track release that sounds and feels every bit as vibrant as this stellar 2014 LP Happiness Is Happening. Sliced Africa opens with "Black Towers" a racketing slab of epic deepness that appears suited to the early morning moments, whilst the title track has our Roman veering off into more tropical territory. Some superb drum programming on this one. To close "Spiritual Enhancer" adopts a more contemplative poise, easing down the tempo and providing the warm up DJs with a digital B-side gem to cherish.

His latest release, the Payback EP boasts four new jams - the bouncy mid-paced sizzler "Lets Get It On", the James-Brown-on-ludes slow-crunch of "JB Payback", the hyperactive hysteria of "Rok Da House" and the breezy, top down glide of "(Looking For) Somebody". Dancefloors everywhere, considered yourselves destroyed!

Review: After recently notching up three years in the business, HFN Music offshoot Hafendisko is in celebratory mood. So much so they've put together this first split EP - trailed as a "mini compilation" - featuring a trio of new cuts and another chance to savour Ewan Pearson's epic, Italo-influenced electro-disco reinterpretation of Kaspar Bjorke's "Apart". Of the new material it's Snacks' deep and rolling, warm and soul-flecked house jam "Easy" that stands out. That said, there's something deliciously sweet about the lolloping synth bass, cut-up vocals and drowsy chords of Unkwon's "Everything", while Deo & Z-Man's "Penelope" is a breezy, bongo-laden delight.

"In The Trees" is pure Chicago magic and features the vocal talent of Khalil Anthony in the mix, while "Make It Now" is a jazzy house piece a-la Moody. Last but by no means the least, "Sad N Blue" goes for chunky beats, gorgeous piano keys and a stunning backdrop of seductive R&B vocals. This is for HOUSE music lovers and it's massive.

Review: Driving his dusty dub wagon through the complex planes of modern bass, confidently cruising the leftfield hand side, Drew is slowly building a very solid reputation for creative boundary pushing. Too hip-hop to be dubstep, too subby and twisted to be trip-hop, there's some real character to his cuts. Examples include the woozy strings and lolloping Thievery Corporation vibe of "Strange", the fine balance of dreamy elements and snarling bass on the EP title track "Defiance" and the Shadow-esque slumber-stamper "Hope". Confidently deep.

Review: Getting his name out there following a single on Winding Road Records in 2013, Lonely Boy is making his intentions clear on this single for Futureboogie. The LA-based producer has a strong handle on the kind of sleazy, four-to-the-floor house music that the Bristolian label favours, and the title-track delivers on every level. "The Subtle Frenzy" has a powerful emotive streak at the core of its own fuzzy synth lines, while "Take Your Time" drifts into slower, more thoughtful territory to show there's more than one side to this boogie-loving beatsmith. The Emperor Machine, meanwhile, whips up a chunky electro-house version of "I Like Disco" that adds a little more meat for the more pumped-up dancefloors.

Chudy, meanwhile, presses the disco button with a series of well-known disco licks and piano hooks. Further on we find Shaka Loves You fusing Stevie Wonder and DJ Kool with infectious results and we get lively to Mako & Mr Bristow's firing Motown jungle flavours. Finally Warson maintains the 170 vibe for the EP climax as "Feel Good" rolls with sizzling soulful charm. Yummy.

He usually digs deep for source material, and the resultant reworks are both reverential (largely steering clear of over-quantized drums and filter tricks) and dancefloor-friendly. This third EP of edits for FKR is full of tasty morsels, from the freshly baked party grooves of cheery funk shuffler "Jam On Sun" and the sensual '80s soul loveliness of "My Life", to the soaring, string-laden peaktime disco of "At The Park". Best of all, though, is opener "Turned On", a mid-tempo chunk of horn tootin' disco that shuffles, throbs and climaxes in all the right places.

Review: Just weeks have passed since he treated us to volume one, NY P-Sol editor returns with another varied selection of disco funk versions. "On A Trip" adds a little contemporary production magic to the Garden Of Eden's long-lost classic. "Good Years" is a full fuelled funk bluster with an empowering spoken word sample, "Body Language" slaps hard with squidgy synth bass boogie punches, while "This Must Be Home" takes Eno & Byrne on a whimsical funk mission in a Cadillac made of pure post-disco magic.
