Review: Editorial is one of the leading re-edit labels currently doing the business, so it's only fitting that they should enlist some leading re-editors for Love Dubs. Australia's Dr Packer leads the charge with a sublime spaced out version of Teena Maries' slap bass classic Behind The Groove. Further highlights include the slo-mo, hands in the air vibes of "Bionic Love" by Robjamweb and the orchestrated '70s glamour beat of "Smile" by Black Rebel.

Review: One of the most respected men in the game, Hazard returns with four blinding slabs of seismic sonics. Don't be fooled by the title, "Bricks Don't Roll" really does roll thanks to some unique drum programming, a harrowed hook and a sub that echoes its every peak and trough. Dig deeper for the head-turning, triplet-twisted hype riser "Mk Q", the subversive alien trippiness of "Death Sport" and the spacious reverberations and epic hollow-bass drop of "Meen Time". Hazard doesn't release EPs that often, but when he does the scene bricks it. This is beyond solid.

Review: The last missive from DJ Vas HQ was way back in November of last year. Thankfully the summer's sunny allure seems to have got his creative juices flowing and now we have four new offerings for our aural pleasure. Roy Ayers' "Our Love Will Bring Us Back Together" is teased out into sinewy, high-end boogie and BB&Q's "Imagination" home is improved, getting rebuilt into lasered robot funk. Crown Heights Affair also get two hip swaying brassy tracks featured here, rounding off the euphoric party vibes in style.

Review: Having struggled to find his niche during the early part of his career, things started looking up for Randomer when he popped up on Numbers back in 2011 with the bombastic blends of acid house and techno that made up his impressive Real Talk EP. Since then, he's impressively flitted between techno and bass music, and here delivers an all-out techno assault for Clone's occasional Basement Series. There's a real no-nonsese feel to the relentless kick-drums and cut-up vocal samples of "Stupid Things I Do", which comes in "New School" and "Old School" mix formats (the latter including some looser techno breakbeats, and thus being our pick). The EP also includes two formidable percussion workouts, which deliver driving drums and booming basslines.

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.

JD Twitch - "Maya" - (4:58) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Review: JD Twitch's Autonomous Africa series is something of a rarity. Each annual EP, which features modern electronic music influenced by African rhythms, sounds and styles, is used to raise money for a different African charity. Proceeds from this third in the series are destined for Tanzania's Mtandika Mission, a charity run by Midland's parents. It seems fitting, then, that he kicks things off with "Safi", a heavyweight slice of future voodoo that expertly blends analogue electronics and bombastic African rhythms. General Ludd go deep, psychedelic and off-kilter with their brilliant "Burning Mack", while Auntie Flo delivers a stripped-back vocal cut with echoes of his recent material on Permanent Vacation. Finally, Twitch steps up to deliver "Maya", which sounds like LFO's "LFO" re-made by African musicians.

from $1.37
Review: "Mind Biscuit": Something tasty for your brain to chew on while your feet mulch up the dancefloor. Auckland crew Monkey Boots lay down two jack-slapping originals that dig deep into the true deep house psyche. "Impossible Need" comes with smoky vocal and smouldering bass vibes on the groove while "Yearning For You" slaps with a lighter sensation, all wafty minor key organs and soul-stirring vocals. Remix-wise Reed & Radley subvert "Yearning For You" with a little more space and reverbed magic while The Phantom Flan Flinger gets all reflective and shimmering on the Balearic bomb "Lullaby For Spiderman". Beautiful.

Review: Legendary label Ruffneck Ting do their thing once again with the return of K Jah to bring the real sounds of jungle back to the dancefloor. This five-track monster rips it up from start to finish, with more fire than an octogenarian's birthday cake. First up to bring the vibes is "Supaclash" with its giant bass and even bigger selection of well-poised sampling. Following up with hard-rolling "Rough Times" and old-school tinted dancefloor-shaking "It Gets Better" there's a plethora of influences here ripe for the picking. "That's A Fact" follows up with a skank-along beats, filth bass and hip-hop vocals, and finally the greatest sweets in the world get a look in with "Cola Cubes" featuring Vytol, a dark and dingy look into the early hours; cold, heavy and very, very ravey.

Review: Hotbox Boogie is the deep disco offshoot of Denver edit label Hotbox. Release schedules are there for a reason, and this time it's the turn of shady funk fiend Brutal Disco to step up to the plate. He doesn't do badly either with the slap-bass showdown of "This Kinda Lovin" and the smooth 90s lounge vibes of "Make Me Feel Good" hitting the spot, but it's the epic joy of filtered disco house beast "Keep On" that really steals the show.

Review: Expect much skanking and rejoicing from this herbal-tinted remix release, refixed and sharpened up by none other than the Serial Killaz. First up, "Uprising" goes on a high-energy jungle flex, rolling hard and fast with plenty of upbeats and plenty of vibe. Marcus Visionary steps up next for his take, rewinding back to the old school and adding the sounds of the street to toughen up the proceedings. Serial Killaz then get back to another co-effort for a dance-friendly Radio Edit and finally an instrumental mix takes centre stage. No beat was left unturned. Fire!

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.

Time Traveller (feat Steo) - (5:21) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Unlike his more prolific counterparts on the scene, Beta 2 has been working away quietly and sporadically over the past few years, spreading his talents sparsely but effectively, like a stealth bomber. With a timeless quality only a few producers manage to evoke, his tracks always bring the glory years of D&B to mind, transitioning smoothly from 1994 to 2004 to 2014 in the blink of an eye. "2nd Page" is a masterpiece in smooth, swaying drum and bass, picking up swooning strings as it rolls past. Second track "NOD" is made of harder stuff, with rough breaks and empty, minimal atmosphere. Moving into techier territory, "Time Traveller" takes beats most familiar to fans of the likes of Burial and Four Tet, speeds them up and sends them on their way with a gorgeously soothing rumble of velvety bass and soaring atmospherics. A true gem.

Review: Auckland's deep delving duo Monkey Boots are back with a new version of "Whitworth Strut", this time reworked by disco royalty himself, Greg Wilson. Under Wilson's guidance the track becomes like a whooshy, subaquatic disco swim with tides of touchy feely loops washing all over the listener in blessed-out joy. Elsewhere we get a new track "Hold Back The Night", which is a lean and mean slice of linear electro funk (also successfully dubbed out by Andy Hart) that clocks in at a whopping eight minutes!

Review: Man of many monikers Gerd returns to the NY Stomp alias he last used in 2012. "I Feel It Comin' On", featuring Matthew Kirkwood, is a sparkling chunk of revivalist US house, with pianos and cut-up soul vocals riding a classic bassline and stomping, basement-friendly beats. There's a couple of more UKG-friendly revisions in the shape of the Bass'N'Dirt Remix and Dub, while Ovis gives the original a thunderous makeover - all raw drum machine beats, powerful sub and cut-up, hands-in-the-air vocals. There's also a solid bonus cut, "Beatattak", in which Gerd laces chopped-up freestyle vocals and dreamy chords over a skipping, US garage style rhythm.

Review: Moscow producer Alexander Lay-Far has enjoyed a productive EP, delivering effortlessly soulful deep house releases for City Fly, Lazy Days and Atjazz's eponymous imprint. Here he pops up on Local Talk with four more reasons to be cheerful. "Side To Side (I Just)" sets the tone, impressively fusing attractive electronics and shuffling, US house-influenced beats with warm chords and soulful vocal samples. Fouk remixes the same track, bringing out the bluesy elements in the vocal while offering a smoother, eyes-wide-shut, piano-laden interpretation. Elsewhere, Lay-Far shows his disco side on the baggy, horn heavy loop-jam "Get On It", while "Feel Like Making Dub" is an expansive, sun-kissed trip into boss-house territory complete with sumptuous keys and a rich bassline.

Review: Liondub International come through with their usual bag of ragga jump-up goodness, and this time it's a mash up of the legendary Ranking Joe! "Ram Dance Selecta" is a serious body groover packed full of crunchy breaks and that inimitable Jamaican vocal twist - a true lesson in rub-a-dubbin'! "Jungle General" is another slice of mutant ragga funk, but a touch deeper and a little more sensual. All together, a true flash job. Run it!!

"Fall In Love" itself is a beauty of a track - with Eva Lazarus referencing Althia and Donna and the horns blowing pure heat there's a true dancehall vibe sizzling. First up to give it the remix treatment are Dope Ammo and Marvellous Cain who add their fun and fire twist with a hard edged drop switched into that winding bassline to send crowds wild. Mr Benn picks up the tune for its final remix and adds his own reggae vibes, swapping those dark dancefloor sounds for sunshine and tropical funky bass. Versatility and vibes - what more do you want?

Review: Having built an impressive reputation via releases on Aus Music and Naked Naked, British house duo Dusky have decided to launch their own label, 17 Steps. This first release - from the duo themselves, naturally - suggests the label could be a force to be reckoned with in coming years. There's a thrillingly saucer-eyed feel about "Love Taking Over", which peppers a robust, sub-heavy groove with drifting alien synths, wonky pads and choice vocal samples. "Inta" is more obviously accessible, with classic house pianos and spoken vocal stabs providing the track with bags of energy. "Expectations" sees the duo return to familiar influences, with acid bass and attractive hooks riding a bustling, US garage-influenced groove.

Review: When you think of Basic Fingers, it's hard not to associate the label with the seasoned disco tweaking activities of Koko Garito, a man whose been integral in establishing the label within the edit community from the very off (remember that slick Skipworth & Turner edit on FINGERS001?) As you might have gathered from the title, this is the fourth solo Koko release for Basic Fingers and commences in jazz funk heaven with an edit of Deodato called "Family Affair" which shows off his skills for rearrangement and deft EQ for nine glorious minutes. Meanwhile, "Welcome Aboard" sees Koko flipping a Barry White and Webster Lewis arrangement in equally silky fashion, making it a perfect nugget for the early afternoon boat parties this summer.

Review: Following the sad news of Rashad's passing, this latest single from the ever-productive Addison Groove takes on a more poignant nature as the late footwork legend guests on the second track. That the track is called "U Been Gone" only adds to the emotional weight of it, not to mention the wistful keys and yearning vocal lick. Elsewhere Addison Groove is on typically fiery form, from the rave baiting whiplash of "Push It" to the weighty bassbin busting badness of "Dat Ass". The samples are beyond cheeky in their recognisability, and it matters not a jot when the music kicks as hard as this.

Review: Haunted bass peddler Woz has upped his output quota recently, and he continues his ascent with this short and sweet two-tracker. First up is "Cherry Hill" which is low slung, spacey and dark house: all sultry buzzes, hums and the ghostly vocals of Max Marshall. However, if it's creeped-out and dark 2-step you're after, you're best heading straight for the dark alley shuffle of "Trust Meh".

Review: With releases on Mad Decent and Southern Fried to their name, Birmingham duo Hybrid Theory are fast becoming stars in the all-action world of bass music. Here, they continue their hard-to-define explorations, which variously doff a Snapback to grime, UKG, UK funky and deep house. Opener "Drop To The Max" gets things rolling via pulsating sub-bass, cut down rave stabs, locked in house beats and an almighty breakdown that should get hands rocketing skywards on the dancefloor. "Raw Sex" is an altogether more robust proposition, with dirty great bass and grime electronics wrapped around a hissing UKG rhythm. Finally, Hybrid Theory break up the beats a little on "Dollars", which is impressively sparse in its production, but no less effective. Once the bass and watery melodies take hold, you'll be hooked.

Review: Amazingly, it's been three years since Birmingham-raised duo Cause & Affect made their debut on Beatdown Music. Since then, their profile has rocketed thanks to regular appearances on Rinse FM. Here they pop up on the station's label offshoot with a four tracker that smoothly joins the dots between UK funky, deep house and UKG. Opener "Mistakes", blessed as it is with jaunty bleep melodies, warm sub, heady pads and a choice vocal sample, is particularly impressive. "Dimensions" is faster and breezier, with deliciously wide-eyed breakdowns, while "Bird Flu" laces electronic blips and cut-up vocals over a rolling 4/4 garage rhythm. Finally, "Foorest" is impressively weird and glitchy, sounding like UK bass house beamed down from another planet.

Review: With the previous collaborative benchmark set high from the massive "September Sun" and their remix of Plastician's "Hard Graft", N-Type and Surge compound their premium partnership once again with this massive five-tracker. Every track is total galvanised darkness; from the paranoid pads and disgustingly thick bass/kick drive on "Katnip" to the almost Detroitian arpeggios, mangled grimy rhyme and spiked out acid line of "Clobber" via the dramatic rips and sneers of the EP title track, it's clear Surge and N-Type complement each other incredibly well.

Review: Staffordshire's Rich Lane made some serious waves recently with slo-mo Balearic bomb "Shelves" getting serious plays from the likes of Emperor Machine and Tronik Youth. For his latest release (on a split EP) he's chosen to present a cool, linear re-edit of A Split Second's 1986 classic "Flesh" - originally a faster punk record, it famously gave birth to Belgian New Beat when DJs played it at 33rpm and slowed to -8. Also included is returning '90s hero Peza (Lee Perry) with a reworked version of No More Nightmares - now stripped back to a slow acidic chugger.

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: Jump up heads, it's time to get nasty. A year after the release of this notorious dancefloor killer, Filthy Habits have taken to the lab once again to remix "No Cure" for the late summer crowds and boy are we grateful. Packed to burst with dirty bass and hard-spanking snares, there's not a pair of dunks in sight that could resist skanking to this. "Boiling Point" on the other hand raises up the salute to Turno's production skills with a faithful remix from Filthy Habits. Still dark, still destructive but with a sleeker, meaner level of devastating realness, this roller is going places. The favourite by far.

Review: Defkline is one of the alternate monikers used by breakstep pioneer Deekline (of I Don't Smoke fame). This Londoner never rests - running no less than six labels including Hot Cakes. Here on "Push Dat" he's having a bit of throwaway fun taking the riff from '90s superhit Push The Feeling On by Nightcrawlers and mixing it in both 2-step and housey styles. Sure to conjure up smiles in clubs everywhere.

If I Was To Gravy You - (5:28) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Thanks to a string of well-received releases on Wolf Music, Dutch deep house producer Frits Wentink is a man in demand. Here he builds on his growing reputation with a typically bass-heavy, floor-friendly four-tracker for Heist Recordings. Wentink's production style - eccentric but danceable, and prone to blending fuzzy, analogue-rich bottom end with all manner of curious musical flourishes - is unique, and all four tracks come blessed with his usual intriguing touches. "Ligament" is the most obvious deep house killer, though we're particularly fond of the rubbery bass, watery vocals and jazz keys of "Sauce" - though the bouncy "Shrewd" has the most cross-over potential. Either way, it's another excellent EP from the Dutchman.

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.

Review: If you see the name "Nymfo" and you think "uh oh", you'll be pleased to know that he's done you proud once again. Joining forces with Detail, the essence of darkness himself, he's gone a step further into the abyss with this release. "Coming Through" begins with a frozen, arid, industrial landscape built from claustrophobic production and ingenious samples, turning into a monster roller built for heavy-duty demolitions. "Survivor" builds yet more tension within a soundscape, this time from a terrifying robotic reanimation chamber complete with electrocution and '80s sci-fi synth pads. Finally the pair finish up with "Tower of David", a biblically deep and dark stomper set to shake most raves to the ground.

Review: Cameron Jenkison and John Neenan aka South Royston are steadily making their way to the top of the garage game. The Southampton duo drop their first EP on the irritably on-point Four40 and as expected, it's a doozy. "Another Night" starts all floaty and pad-rich but quickly drops into a funky, militant 4/4 beat for the peak time hours. "Bad Format" goes even nastier thanks to a chopped up vocal sample that twists and turns over those silky, fast-paced garage kicks and hats. Bombs, the lot of em!

Review: Brighton bass evangelists 877 have the likes of GoldFFinch and My Nu Leng amongst their roster and can now boast the addition of the hotly tipped Distro too. Featuring the moody garage-flecked "Pinnacle" and the deep, wobble-heavy 4x4 of the title track, Flava D also remixes the latter into end-of-the-world speed garage. However, it's the thrilling collision of Bristolian heroes Distro and My Nu Leng on the big-beat- meets-disco-in-bass-town shenanigans of "Sleepless" that's getting the real hype from the likes of B Traits and Monki right now. On fire!

From the Zapp-esque slow jam opener "Are You " to the G-funk of instrumental closer "Easy Ride Again" via the electro-funk-pop of "Western Wind" (and the killer electro stomp remix by Fingerman), it's one fun ride!

Review: With previous damage caused on Imperial Audio, UK bass conjurer Arkwright steps over to Gaze Ill and Don D's ever-impressive Cue Line. And he does so with no less than five tracks. There's a distinctly tribal twang to each of the cuts: "Kwata"'s linear percussive assault sets the tone perfectly well as we're thrusted into the sludgy sub grumbles of "Settle", the widescreen pads and densely layered drum sounds of "Living" and the off-kilter lollops and flickers of "Level Head". Looking for more funk and less tribal? Head for the switch-flipping techy 4/4 and b-boy scratch madness of "Nosalis".

Review: It would be fair to say that Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint is good at spotting talent on smaller labels and giving them a bit of a push. The latest to receive this treatment is Tonbe (AKA Serbian producer Milos Djordjevic). The Big Game Fishing EP is arguably his strongest EP to date, and sees him going deeper into disco production whilst retaining his usual house-friendly dancefloor sensibility. Opener "Original Tool" - all rousing horns, clipped guitars, smothering organs and chunky beats - is particularly potent. The deep house-boogie fusion "Money Maker" is tasty, too, while "Explore Your Fantasy" expertly layers parping horns and funk guitars over a slap bass-propelled groove. Closer "Disco Nights" - a breezy, summery nu-disco jam destined for heavy rotation in sunny climes - is also pretty nifty.

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: Four firing party pieces here from nu-funk's Irish ambassador DT, where we find him tricking out some of modern history's most formative classics. "Shake Ya Booty" lives up to its title with salubrious grooves and a quick-switch dynamic to sharp mid-range bass, "Have A Party" takes a Jackson Five standard and processes it through an industrial strength low-end machine, "Funky Music" pays homage to Wild Cherry by way of seriously swashbuckling beats and an arrangement that twists and develops on every 16. Finally "Nod Ya Head" ignites with an instantly engaging skank riff and a bassline so squidgy and funky it could make Bootsy Collins titter like a schoolgirl.

Review: Is it us or are Bacon getting tastier and tastier with every release? The same can be said for emerging Croatian producer 207, too; with previous on Badmood and Indigo, here we find him stepping up to Sparxy's porky imprint with a series of unrelentingly heavy slabs of contemporary dubstep. The title track is total naked menace as snake-like kickdrums rattle and his under a series of deep breath textures. Elsewhere "Acylon" flips to a steppy and ghostly 90BPM vibe, "Active" goes straight for the jugular with crisp punctuated kick militancy and Ohmtrix takes his Zeiph status to new levels with total remix subversion. Sinfully good.

Review: Originally debuting on Well Rounded Records' Housing Project sub-label in 2012, Leon Vynehall has since become one of the UK's most in-demand of the new wave of young house producers. He's released subsequent records for George Fitzgerald's ManMakeMusic and Will Saul's Aus, and most recently an album on Martyn's 3024. Vynehall is now in cruise control and he lays back on Clone's Royal Oak with what will prove to be a favourite with DJs this summer. "Butterflies" is this record's piano-driven house jam, but really it's all about "This Is The Place", a loved up peach of a production with the strength to appease the underground and crossover into the mainstream.

Review: Supporting the long-awaited debut album from Italian bass mainstays Numa Crew, Liondub International presents a double-A side featuring the one and only Dub FX on the mic. "Bass Hater" is a Frankenstein's monster of classic drum & bass and hip hop with its fusion of half-tempo rhymes and up tempo drums, showing off ultramodern production built around tightly wound bass burbles, minimalist drums and fine musical details. The instrumental flipside "B.M.X" leads with plucked strings suddenly run into the digitizer once the beat drops, a tense track of modern beat science at its finest to show off the Crew's most experimental side. Get involved.
