from $1.49
Review: Long standing Deep Medi player Silkie steps over to Wheel & Deal with three out-of-the-box bass cuts. "Bird In The Sky" is all about the bashy, UK funky style drums and a loopy element that digs deep with hypnosis. "M3000" takes the brutal factor up another notch; all pneumatic kicks and clattering snares, it's a class lesson in minimal mischief. After two rocket-fuelled stompers, Silkie treats us right with "Limits". A modern day sexy jam, all slinky and piano-tickled, it's the perfect way to end the EP, and your next set. Full circle business.

from $1.49
Review: The latest track to be chosen as a single from recent album Chrome Waves is "Just Wanna Be Loved", the original of which sounded like a wine bar on the South of France circa 1985 (in all the right ways). Here however, its all about the remixes and there's some killer reworks to be found. Highlights include the mystic beat voodoo-tech of Art Of Tone's title track rework, the vintage jazzy Euro-disco of Hot Toddy's dub of "Back Again" and slick speed garage of Animist's celestial reverie.

Review: Funk fantastic Dave Gerrard is back where he belongs - with Chopshop, the re-edit label run by the one and only DJ Butcher. Rip More Funk is all about the fun and contains four reworks of fairly familiar party funk favourites with the likes of James Brown appearing on "Like A Funk Mashine" alongside the more obscure disco chant-a-long "Do It (I like To) and the elastic boogie of "Keep Your Body Workin'".

from $1.49
Played by: Monki
Review: Manchester's finest D&B producer Dub Phizix inaugurates his brand new SenkaSonic label with a pair of tracks that charge as hard as the title suggests. "Buffalo Charge" sees the producer team up with Strategy to deliver a killer piece of forward-thinking D&B filled with colourful melody and soca-tinged rhythms with enough sub-bass to collapse any nearby buildings. "Bounce" sees Dub Phizix flying solo but creating a track with just as much menacing low end, a more straight up banger to complement the playful tone of "Buffalo Charge". Both absolutely smash it - don't sleep.

La Meme Pour Moi EP by Andy Hart on Heist Recordings Cue Track
Epsilon Girls - (5:49) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: If it's sophisticated deep house you're after, Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings usually delivers the goods. This latest missive is no exception. It comes from Australian producer Andy Hart, who has recently collaborated with Francis Inferno Orchestra and Max Graef, dropping 12"s on Melbourne Deepcast and Sleazy Beats Black Ops. Hart's style is deep, tactile and quietly soulful, with toasty pads and hazy melodies riding chunky grooves and warm basslines. The four tracks here stick to this formula, mixing up the styles and influences a little for good measure. So, there's a touch of sleaziness about the old school bump of "Hermano" and the bluesy "Epsilon Girls" (our pick), while the darting "The Same For Me" is an altogether smoother proposition.

from $1.49
Review: Sheffield's Chip Butty label returns with its latest unmissable dose of bass, with label owner Dr Cryptic delivering three tracks alongside another trio of low-end heaters from Dr Oscillator. Brilliantly titled the Dr Who? EP, it sees Dr Oscillator deliver the digidub-flecked bass of "BIG", the frantic sub workout of "Cocaine" and dark, sinister stripped-back sounds of "Mandem". Dr Cryptic's contributions are on the much ruder end of the bass scale, with "I Don't Care", a peak time slice of 4/4 featuring red alert sirens, "Rudebwoi" a vortex of churning bass and killer vocals and "Gibbo" another tune guaranteed to mash up the dance with its frequencies. Essential stuff!

Summer Fruits - (4:06) 55 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: We're unsure who Walter is, but we do know that this EP is the end result of Swindle looking after his grandparents' house for a summer between international shows, and how he turned their living room into a studio fit for a horn section. The end result features some of the funkiest, jazz-jacked, unique instrumentals he's ever recorded (which is saying something). Muted trumpets, big piano slaps, heavyweight beats, infectious hooks and an overall sense of fun, Swindle remains the funk champion of dubstep-related music. For something a little more chill switch for the dreamlike "Summer Fruits". In terms of an appropriate seasonal release, the timing is terrible. In terms of everything else about the track, it's perfect. Essential Swindle.

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

from $1.49
Review: So Tyke has been doing his thing for Playaz for some time now and it's still blowing minds everywhere. What is it he's got that keeps his tunes sounding so fresh? For starters, his blend of high energy D&B might have that jump-up sound but it's by no means stuck on the genre ring road. Taking influences from darker, minimal and even techy drum and bass, he's found a niche that fits him, rather than wedged into a comfortable but overstuffed sub-genre. The result is another outstanding release from this unstoppable producer. No wonder he's top property right now.

Review: Following his recent appearance on Smokecloud, Sleazy returns to his Whiskey Disco home to celebrate its 25th release. As you'd expect from McQueen, it's an instant disco funk showdown laced with all manner of well dug sources and sounds. From the tight loop and lolloping bass of "Teeny Lovin'" to the more upfront glitter-sprinkled funk of "In The Year 2014" via an extended, head-turning cover of "Dancing In The Streets", each one of these cuts sparkles with Sleazy's skills and reminds us that Whiskey Disco is still very much on-point with every single release.

from $1.49
Review: Ultra Bass is a label that has been gaining steady ground with its UKF-flecked bass-house bangers. Here David Eliza adopts the well-rounded soulful tones of vocalist Jael for the synth washed break-step jam "Amazin'" and the deeper, housier "The Ride". Standout remixes here include Rare Candy's sumptuous poolside rerub of the latter and Tommy Mc's deliciously dirty basement garage rework of the former.

From the filtered funk loops of opener "Movin On" to the low-slung afterhours slinker "Summer" via the electro-disco-meets-funky-house anthem "Love In" it's almost like Paris circa '98 again!

Review: An EP that really does live up to its name: Everything about Father Funk's first full EP for Scour genuinely is phenomenal. Bursting at the seams with a full flavoured rainbow of grooves, we're spoilt for choice: the Bootsy-level chaos of "Love Shack", the Cuban heel clicking fiesta fire "Gringo Lingo", the surprisingly salubrious disco licks of "Filthy" and, of course, the Van Helden salute that is the title track. "Phenomenal Funk" = phenomenally funky. More please daddio.

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

Review: Drum and bass super-producer TC returns to his rightful place at the top of the world with this arms-in-the-air release. It's not all drops and highlights though, as top level remixes rush the stage, jostling for a slice of the spotlight. Upfront and experimental, the ever-incredible Ivy Lab break out of the norm to present their scattered,bass-heavy, pitch-shifted take, directly followed by newcomer Silverback's uplifting tear-jerker of an edit, punching hard and fast like a winner on course. Finally, TCTS offers up a hotly-tipped house cut, bouncing hard and rolling in smooth. You wouldn't get more variety on a biblical cruise ship, and that's the truth.

Review: Dave Gerrard has cut his teeth on the mighty Chopshop label, but for his latest EP he's opted to move to Sound Exhibitions. Perhaps this explains the poppier choice of edit material as this one's straight up party fodder. The lead track is a tasteful, if quite restrained version of David Joseph's classic 1983 funk-meets-proto-house anthem "You Can't Hide Your Love". Then it's back to the '70s and the familiar hustle flute rears it head on the beefed up grooves of "Bump N Hustle". Finally "Tom Tom Boogie" goes for the jugular - speeding up "Genius Of Love" to a feverish pace.

Played by: Sabo, Alfa Flite
Review: York-based Alfa Flite is slowly building a reputation as a purveyor of fine, soul-flecked edits that tiptoe the fine line between deep house and disco. Here, the mystery combo drops a new edit - a sensual, head-nodding and toe-tapping reinterpretation of what appears to be a classic Sade cut. With rubbery bass, unfussy beats, gentle guitars and emotion-rich vocals, there's plenty to enjoy. With a decent amount of compression on the beats and bassline, as well as a surprisingly distant feel about the vocal, it feels primed and ready for dancefloors that like their grooves toe tapping, head nodding and groovy.

On the Devil's Funk EP, we get four naughtily nefarious joints - the tough '70s stomp of the title track, "Monkey See" is a saucy slinker for those blurry later hours, "Afrikan", with its trippy, accelerated, spacey funk rock is the perfect compliment for those whose punch got spiked. Finally "Creatures Of The Night" is a dubby rework of Laura Brannigan's 1984 Italo-disco classic "Self Control" - perfect for dancers who've lost theirs!

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: This release is a sign of how much of a global phenomenon underground electronic music is, as all of the contributors come from Mexico. Thomass Jackson kick-starts the release with "Bad Chat", a malevolent, bass-heavy groove that is propelled over frenetic drum rolls. Eddie Mercury's "Rim Cow Shot" inhabits a similar space, albeit one that is powered by grainy kick drums and razor-sharp percussive volleys. An interest in the darker side of electronic music must be a common theme for Mexican producers because both Mijo's "Working Late" and Inigo Vontier's "Lunatico" are led by eerie, warbling synths and throbbing basslines and Theus Mago's "Ritmo Extraterrestre" is a wild acid extravaganza.

Review: Re-edit maestro and disco/house producer Tonbe dons the lesser-used Loshmi alias for this four-tracker on his Disco Fruit imprint. This time out, he's exploring a P-funk/electrofunk flex, delivering Serious Edits that subtly toughen up and rework a quartet of little-known '80s jams. There's a delightfully celebratory feel about opener "Bring Me There", whose jaunty horns, party atmos and synth squiggles are backed by a superbly rubbery low-end groove. There's more urgent slap bass action to be found on the baggier "Fighting For Nothing", while "Wsoop Wsoop" and "Whatever You Do" both deliver heavy, floor-friendly P-funk workouts. In other words, Tonbe delivers all killers, no fillers.

Review: The newly founded In:Flux imprint launches its second release after Tik & Borrow's mutant drum-core single, and it's in the form of an extended collaborative release. Mr C goes in for the kill with three monster house mutants packed with enough low-end to send the dubstep boys into twist. Dr. Oscillator's "The Heist" is a similarly gritty and wobbled-out 4/4 lick, while Tik & Smuggla's "Scuffa Kid" goes into a more broken, swinging garage mode. These guys are setting up their own sound fast, so don't sleep and get to know.

Finally we get lively with a muscular big beat jam that features the distinctive vocal tones of DJ Kool Marva Whitney's evergreen horn hook from "Unwind Yourself". Show us a sign!

Here's his latest offering, serving up four 'reworked and rearranged' gems including the thumpingly fat (bell) bottomed, '70s female-fronted-funk of "Cloudy Days", the dubbed out seven minute Bee Gees banger "Across The Floor" and the loopy, swirly exotica of "Rio Groove". Class in a cocktail glass.

Review: Greek DJ, producer and re-editor Alien Disco Sugar has been busy recently, averaging a new EP of disco reworks a month on his Digital Wax Productions imprint. This latest four-track salvo offers many more reasons to be cheerful, not least the spacey filters, sweeping strings and surprisingly Balearic bump of "Jungle Eyes". "So Good, So Right" offers a wonderfully tactile, piano-laden take on the Imagination record of the same name, updating the legendary Larry Levan dub for a new generation. Elsewhere, "Denise" is a synth heavy reggae-disco delight, while the pitched-down "Don't Let Go" throbs, rises and falls in all the right places.

Review: The man behind the deepest MC voice the UK has ever known, Chimpo also runs a very fine line in beats. He's nowhere near as prolific as he should be. But when he does start the engine up, it purrs like a Bugatti. The turbo-charged footwork-meets-jungle "Restless Leg Syndrome" drives like one too. Deeper into the release we strike swaggering, waspy halfstep gold on "Haymaker", we get dangerous on the stark, spacious almost trap-like title track, we hit tribal insanity on the loopy vocal-coated "Bun It" and trippy insanity on the wonked-out, weirded-up "Dumb". Out, bad and essential.

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: Featuring album lead-off track "Impossible" and the dark hip-hop & dancehall hybrid "Control" with Robert Dallas on the mic, "Impossible" starts off with sweet vocals and skanking keyboards. "Control" features Kwality on the microphone in a half-time hip hop style, laden with dub effects and circling synthesizers. Contrast comes from Kwality's dancehall-style vocals flowing around the sparse drums while getting wrapped into the delay effects that run through the center of the production. Showcasing two contrasting sides of the Numa Crew on this deadly drop, Liondub is bringing International pressure on the bass scene for 2014.

Review: Serious dubby goodness emanates from starter track "1.4 Days", giving this release from the Bad Company UK fellas an instant place in this month's good books. Rumbling away at breakneck speed, the switching rhythms take things further and further down into the abyss. "Refuge" stops momentum in its tracks with a severe, old school homage to the techy glory days of D&B where cinematics and junglist breaks were king. "The Fear" washes out the top end for a sky high sound and finally "Jellyfish" continues that addictive vintage sound. It's like the sound of every great night distilled into one bassline.

Review: Gamm is an established re-edit and mash-up label that's managed to repeatedly dig up new-old gems since the early Noughties. Having previously tackled Marvin Gaye's back catalogue, The Reflex return with a new EP and this time they've gone Stevie Wonder crazy; providing re-workings of three of the great man's tunes. First up is "I Wish", a nine minute elaboration of the one people think is called 'Sneakin' Out The Back Door...' and one which does a lot to reverse the damage done by Will Smith on his "Wild Wild West" tune. "Higher Ground" is teased out and into a more DJ-friendly format and finally things on high with "Sir Duke" (the one everyone thinks is called 'You Can Feel It All Over'), which gets embellished with a subtle 4/4 beat and big, splashy and celebratory cymbals.

Review: Upgrade comes from the streets of Norwich - perhaps not the first place you'd think of when you think hard-hitting drum and bass pedigree, but this man does it with style. Rising up over the past three years, he's already been seen on wax with fellow dancefloor slayers Serial Killaz. His gritty sound gets things rolling in "Calling", with a militant edge and serious bassline duttiness. "Sounds of the Jungle" picks up on mad wildlife samplings with blistering snares and a filthy dubbed out bassline. "The Haunted" creeps its way though a halftime stomp revival and "The Congo" lifts the mood slightly with more jungle atmosphere and tweaked bass. Finally it's a junglist meltdown with Ticklah and Courteny John as you've never heard them before. Boom!

Nothing wrong with that of course, and Matt Hughes begins things nicely with some dreamy and soft chilled disco on the filtered instrumental "Star System", next up "Girls, Girls, Girls" is probably the perkiest EP track here with a jagged electro funk bassline, taught guitar and string stabs, with its shimmering analogue synths, "Get It Right" is like the sound of a magic carpet night flight over ancient Arabia or something, and finally "Hypnotic Groove" is the token houser - all slow thump and piano loops.

Review: Having served a vital function in testing the temperature of bass music at key times since Tempa first started operations at the nexus of dubstep, the latest instalment of Tempa Allstars succinctly lays down a crystal clear definition of where some of the most exciting noises are being made, and its based around the industrial sound sources, grime intensity and techno experimentalism of artists such as Wen, Batu and Alex Coulton at this time. All three are on searing form here, whether it be the broken swerve of the former or the dread-filled 4/4 thrust of the latter, and likewise Innasound, AxH and Peverse bring their own continuations of the hardcore continuum to bear to devastating effect.

Review: Numbers aren't giving much away about the identity of Deejay Deer - unless, of course, he is genuinely a forest-dwelling animal with a sideline in synth-laden late night house, as their amusing press release claims - but in many ways it doesn't really matter. Both tracks here are superb, with "Natural" offering a fizzing, melodious take on deep house with clear Floating Points, Tiger & Woods and Joy Orbison influences. There's also a touch of Caribou about virtual flipside "Unantural", whose fluid waves of synthesizer and exotic, almost psychedelic chords seductively crash over a wide-eyed, loose-limbed jazz groove. It's impressively produced, suggesting this is the work of a seasoned pro rather than a little-known newcomer.

Review: While Italian producer Nicholas has always been obsessed with classic house - be it the piano-laden release of early '90s Italian productions or the New Jersey bump of later period Nu Groove - he's more than capable of producing deep house laden with soulful intensity. That's what's on offer across these four tracks, beginning with the heavy bass, dreamy chords and sensual vocal (provided by Shaun J Wright) of "Love Someone". The Italian wisely provides a darker, chunkier dub of the same track, before exploring acid and sprawling pianos on the deliciously effective "Message". Finally, "J.U.N.E" features an attractive blend of hazy freestyle vocals and cute Rhodes keys riding a fizzing, late '90s US deep house groove.
