Review: Razor 'N' Tape has been slowly expanding its' outlook in recent years, focusing on original productions just as much as re-edits. Here, they've pulled off something of a coup by snapping up two fresh cuts from Dutch heavyweights Kraak & Smaak. There's the clipped Chic guitars, jaunty analogue bass, undulating Syclops lead lines and gravelly soul vocals of "Way Back Home", and the filter-heavy disco-house throb of "Seb's Party". The package also includes two tasty re-rubs apiece from Ben Sun and Tiger & Woods. Sun offers up a smooth, nu-disco/deep house fusion, followed by a chunkier, classic house sounding affair, while Tiger & Woods offer two superb variants on the same throbbing, electrofunk-meets-Balearic piano house template.

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.

Review: Suffolk's D-Stortion Records are back with an impressive bunch of breakbeat science upstarts that aren't messing around. Take for instance Dominator & Heist with their fierce DJ Krust influenced stepper "Trouble"; that strings section in the middle is just classic! Next up Dominator teams up with Upgrade on "Couldn't Care Less" which rolls and growls away ferociously in a purist techstep tradition. Dominator, again, shows us his skills in conjunction with Invictus; this time on the dark and suspenseful sci-fi beat futurism of "Infected", which brazenly wears its Virus Recording influence on its sleeve and we can dig that!

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: 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.

Played by: BRENDON P
Review: Crazy P man Jim Baron once more dons his Ron Basejam alter ego, delivering a strong virtual double A-side for Bristol's Futureboogie Recordings. Opener "Time" not only features some decidedly cosmic spoken word vocals from Vern, but was also co-produced by PBR Streetgang man Bonar Bradberry. In typical Baron fashion, the track is a loose, warm and inviting affair that effortlessly blends live instrumentation (guitars, bass, Clavinet) with a rolling dancefloor groove. "The Carrington Spirituals" is an altogether more urgent affair, and sees the experienced producer offering a typically attractive, horn-heavy take on loopy disco-house.

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: Yet another bullseye for the V camp: Command Strange returns with two straight up slabs of fire that are so hot Bryan Gee has been issues a health and safety warning. "Can't Stop" vibes with a real twist, as what begins as a classic subby roller suddenly switches into a reese and vocal fuelled stamp session. "The Gang", meanwhile, takes a few leaves from the books of neuro, Ram and Bad with its early 2000s gritty, fuzzy distorted funk. Undiluted... Handle with care.

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: D&B darling Rob Dimension does it again... Both "Automatik" and "Hydraulic" capture both sides of D&B's ever-flipping coin right now. The former tips a slight nod at Rob Swire with its space-aged vocal processing, hookiness and Sub Focus style hook while the latter takes us much deeper into the dance with a brutal techy swing. Serious mechanical mischief both tailored squarely for the biggest crowds.

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.

Review: Countdown to blast off in D-Minus zero seconds: Cardiff bass crusader D-Minus continues his rampant run of muscular musicianship on Dub Damage with some of his most hair-raising riff-focused cuts to date. "Deproramme" slaps and tickles with a Tyke-like charm, quite light in its make up but more addictive than heroin-laced e-cigs. "Bun It Up" is where the real KO kicks off as a toxic bassline refuses to quit under the command of MC Tommy D. Deeper into the EP "Dry Socket" gets greased up with a sticky, slimy sense of playful funk while "Secret Weapon" takes on more of a neuro twist with its denser, complex textures. Gritty.

Review: Dim Zach begun his career way back in 1990, spinning techno in his native Greece. He's also played live around the World with Liebe. These days, though, he's more focused on disco, and here delivers a fine EP of ear-pleasing re-edits for Spain's Rare Wiri. While the tempos of the five edits on Army of Lovers are undeniably on the pitched-down end of the spectrum, he manages to pack in plenty of energy to get dancefloors moving. Highlights include the sensual, sax-laden disco strut of opener "Give It You", the Middle Eastern intoxication of rearranged cosmic disco fave "Egri", the dilated pupils, hazy spoken word vocals and dreamy Balearic shuffle of "Army Of Lovers", and the hazy looseness of "Lullaby" (a tasty rework of the Cure cut of the same name).

Review: Bristol soundclash roadmen Run Tingz dig deep into the RTC vaults and dish out parts from some of their many classic skank-ups for an A-list crack team of remixers: Serum completely flips "Murder Your Sound" with a halftimey dancehall arrangement, steel drums and ripples of drum muscles. Levela takes the Boomah-fronted "It's A Junglist Ting" into a romp of ridiculous proportions while Gold Dubs switches Run Tingz Cru's sweetest love song "Took My Breath" into a sub-rumbling jungle shock out. Finally Belgian upstarts Koznik & Khavy chop up a sharp slice of turbo-fuelled continental jump-up. Epic. Get on these Tingz.

Review: Last spotted on Liondub showing us no mercy whatsoever, Cologne's Brainstorm returns the label's Street Series with another fistful of fire. Rich variety is clear from the off as we glide to the smooth subby sounds of opener "Brooklyn Dub" before getting hurled headfirst into a Hoogs-level jump-up riff bash. Further on we shock out to whistling, breezy jungle on "Right Now" while things get pure ugly with two gritty early-2000s style riff cuts with Ricky Tuff. Serious street smarts.

The Newcastle-based producer has previously released music on a wide number of labels - Undercover Operations, Editorial and Chopshop included - and here pops up on '80s Child's Masterworks Music. He begins with the bumpin', delay-laden disco-house swing of "Blueberry Muffins", before dipping a toe into the world of filter-heavy disco-funk on the pleasingly sweet and punchy "Get Next To You". Elsewhere, be sure to check out the funked-up disco-house roller "Tutti Frutti" (the main sax riff, in particular, is ace), and closer "Kittiwake Kebab", whose combination of hazy instrumentation and shuffling breakbeats is particularly refreshing.

Review: This debut edits EP from Israeli disco duo Rabo & Snob first appeared on wax back in 2014, and here makes it to digital download for the first time. It sees the Tel Aviv twosome deliver a trio of effortlessly groovy, mid-tempo reworks that seemingly bristle with sunny intent. Opener "Here We Come" excites in part due to the tasty combination of hustling Clavinet lines and starry synth-work (though the swinging rhythm below is also rock solid), while "Baci" sees them reaching for the strobe via a trippy, Italo-influenced groove, sweaty percussion hits, and sweeping, tops-off strings. Best of all, though, is the hypnotic bounce, rubbery bass and sultry, late night sensuality of killer closer "Everybody Knows It".

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".

Review: Veteran junglist DJ Cautious lays down some gully gold on the ever-dependable Deep In The Jungle. "Rough Love" says it all; a smooth R&B vocal sets the tone before the breaks and Cutty Ranks flow whistle into the mix. "Fat Booty" takes us on a dancehall twist with full vocal coverage and well balanced synths while "Kung Fu Horse" brings us right back to the source with sample-heavy jungle ruffage. Serious sonic fighting talk. Finally the inimitable DJ Hybrid gets his hairy paws mucky on "Rough Love", taking it even deeper into the jungle. Proper.

With tracks across a wide range of trustworthy and innovative labels (DSC14, Switch, Proximity, Viper, Celsius) here he returns to Horizons with four more superlative sonic spells: "King Stays" is a piano-pressing stepper that starts off Technimatic but drops into some much more NFM. "Make Me Feel" oozes dreamy soul with its wah wah rippled intro and deep techy pay-off while "Giving Up" takes us much deeper into his range with big splashing cymbals and icy Total Science style synths. Finally "Iron Hand" is a straight up drumfunk cut that will leave you punch drunk. How do feel you about this?

"Sunrise Technology" takes a Klute-strength telescope to see further into the cosmos while "Eternal Truth" brings us back to planet earth with a dreamier melodic structure, cymbal-splashing jungle breaks and a sub that bounces harder than a politician's promises. Serious heat for a new producer.

Review: Fresh from mopping up at the Drum & Bass Awards, Voltage lets rip with a VIP of one of his many past conquests.... Release late 2014, "Float Ya Boat" was a staple for many DJs with its tingling harmonic tones and simple-but-deadly bassline. VIP-wise he adds a little melodic complexity and punch in the drums while retaining the breezy rolls we all fell in love with. "Lose Life" is Voltage reminding us of his darker side with its distorted, grunting riff and heads-down mentality. Life-affirming.

Review: The Alpaca Edits camp are back with Anything To Stay Up. Stevie Wonder's classic "Love's Light In Flight" (known here as "Acid Paradise") gets a re-rub and is almost as good as that great one by Soul Clap a few years ago. 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: 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: Complete with superhero comic book cover art, Quartet Series go on to explain that for the second outing in their Series, French fry and Parisian Concrete resident S3A (Sampling As An Art, Faces) infuses the good guys with some positive energy. 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: 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: 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: It's remix o'clock at Dutty Audio Towers as label bossman passes on the parts to a wide range of scene talents: Klute takes the lead with an iced out twist on "Be Yourself" as he manipulates the vocal loop in a different direction. Current Value follows with yet more of his seemingly unstoppable tech science as a wasp nest bassline rattles in 23rd century style. Newcomers Hanzo & Randie bring up the rear with a heads-down neuro take on "Infection" where full emphasis is placed on the sci-fi bass textures. Finally Gydra gets all mechanical and pneumatic on "Inception", giving the original's iconic riff a Blackout style jump-up sense of turbo-charged energy. Feel the burns.

Review: Self-styled Dirty Latvian Dispoze continues to deliver bass funk of ridiculous proportions. This time he's cashing in his Euros against the weak Brexit-bashed pound with serious added value on Fatman Dee's Young Guns. Ranging from the piano-laced "Recording" to the stranger bass harmonic bass manipulations of "Yeah" (which sound like a young Supreme Being) by way of the horn-tickled bass stepper "Like This", Dispoze ensures you won't be disposing of his tracks from your set any time soon.

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: 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: Berlin's Toy Tonics latest trick is Jockey Jams, the first in an 'irregular series of various artist EPs'. They've rustled up an interesting mix too, starting with the warm mid-paced throb of "Sex' by Black Loops, which features the voice of Scarlett Johansen (from the movie Her). Elsewhere "Waterfalls" by Moritz Butschek, which has that sleazy DJ Hell sound, Portugal's Pixel82 sees his diva house jam Going On given a choppy, hypnotic rework by Australian surfer dude Jad & The Ladyboy. Lastly New York's Doug Gomez wraps things up nicely with the clavinet-driven old school funk joint "Make Your Body Move".

Review: Having recently plied his wares on Spain's Rare Wiri, Dim Zach joins forces with fellow scalpel fiend Deem for another five-tracker on Paris's FKR. The duo begins with the beefed-up, Barry White style disco sensuality of "Love Me Less", before dipping the tempo for a Beatdown-speed saunter through the Flamenco-disco world that is "Spanish Heart". The similarly Latin-tinged shuffle of "Cuban Barman" also impresses, while "Fake Darling" is a rolling disco-funk number full of attractive vocal harmonies, clipped guitars and rubbery bass guitar. A fine EP is rounded off by "Why", a solo re-edit by Dim Zach that successfully reworks a well-known, West Coast groover.
