Review: Pater party starter Father Funk shows us who's the daddy with four more slinky, sample-soaked nu-funk jams. Ranging from the ballsy swing of "Jungle Strut" to the more salubrious, well-oiled slinks and winks of "Start Movin'", once again FF's EP lives up to its title in every way... Climaxing with a smoky-eyed shake up of Dusty Springfield's "Spooky". Sexy.

Review: Don't be fooled by the plethora of comedic, pun-tastic artist names scattered throughout the track list for this sixteenth volume of Vehicle's Boogie Box Edits series. Look harder, and you'll note the distinctive scalpel alias of label boss Valique (simply "V") throughout. His edits - informed by his past in funk breaks as well as disco, boogie and shameless party-starting fun - rarely disappoint, and there's much to enjoy here. Highlights include a toughened-up, straightened out version of the Whispers' "It's A Love Thing" (complete with house pianos), a filter-heavy disco-house tweak of the Johnson Brothers' "Stomp", and a deliciously breezy rework of an old Billy Ocean fave that's worth the admission price on its' own.

Review: Following a recent acclaimed re-edits outing under his alternative Loshimi alias, Serbian producer Milos Djordjevic once again dons the Tonbe guise for a trip into cheery disco-house/nu-disco/deep house fusion. As usual, he has his eyes fixed firmly on the dancefloor, delivering a quintet of tracks that lace chunky house grooves with all manner of authentic disco elements (think clipped guitars, rubbery bass, slippery synths and breezy vocals). There's naturally plenty to enjoy, from the Clavinet-laden disco-funk thrills of "Give Me Funk", to the dreamy vocal sweetness of "This Is The Place", via the sharp string stabs and parping horns of "Disco Frisco".

from $1.49
Review: To celebrate Record Store Day 2015, re-editor Doc Jam delivered an excellent 7" of soulful reworks on the previously unheard Buried Treasure imprint. Here he returns to Giant Cuts - a label he last blessed with his presence back in 2013 - with a quintet of heavyweight disco edits. There's naturally much to admire, from the sweaty, all-instrumental rearrangement of Dan Hartman's "Relight My Fire" (re-titled "Vertigo Dub"), and impressively low-slung, slap bass-propelled "Special Feeling (Extended Mix)" - a sneaky rearrangement of an old Inner Life gem - to the sinewy chug of "Don't Cha No (Edit)", and string-laden madness of "You Likey". Arguably best of all, though, is "Midnight Dub", an extra-percussive rework of a T Connection gem well known to break fiends around the World.

Review: Armed with a ravishing string/harmony sample that swoons with instant summer breeze, Cole Medina has created this year's essential sunset piece. Armed with the right amount of squelchy low-end weight and groove that won't quit, it's Cole at his very best. For more sample mastery flip for the dubby disco lollops of "Make Your Body Move" and the Vadim-esque cosmic hip-hop meanderings of "Big Pimpin'". Super spacious. Another classic 12" from the Medina discography!

Review: Greek re-edit king MaJah has found that his cheeky productions work in his favour; the producer is being re-enlisted to take charge of another volume in Katakana's edit series (he only just recently helmed vol 25!). This time he presents six new tracks, again laying off the disco/Afro in favour of different sounds. Highlights include the lazy funk rock of "Sleaze", the big-beat-goes-big-band-isms of "Give Me What You Got" and the vintage reggae rhyme hip-house crackler "Volume".

Review: The concept behind Friction's Vs series is simple: hook up with as many mates in the studio as possible and write straight-up floor-flatteners. No theme, no pretention, just talented producers working together and playing off each other's strengths. Following epic co-labs with the likes of Icicle, Technimatic and Total Science comes the fattest edition yet as the BBC broadcaster teams up with Dimension (hooky and euphoric), Prolix (outrageously nasty and techy), Metrik (unabashed evangelism with a very well-known vocal hook) and Ulterior Motive (old school references wearing new school armour). Each one repping all player's finest attributes, Friction has brought out the best in his peers... And his own work. Essential.

Review: One of the most exciting representers of UKG's darker, techier, more mischievous underbelly, Deadbeat UK steps up to Tumble once again with four straight up dancefloor-minded thug-outs. The title track switches from robust 4/4 to slinky two-step while a guttural bassline gurgles dirty limericks down your lugholes. "Shapeshifer" wriggles with more of a tubular, metallic snake-bass feel. "Pagans" is rough enough to melt bricks while "Bleak" jumps and bumps with a tightly punctuated hook that's as clipped, direct and unforgiving as a Boer war sergeant major.

from $1.49
Review: Following impressive collaborative outings on Dirt Crew and their own Splendor & Squalor label, Brame and Hamo once again join forces, this time for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings. Predictably, there's genuine warmth throughout, as the duo showcases more tactile deep house compositions. Opener "Parish Rumours" sets the tone, lacing filter-clad female vocal samples and twinkling melodies over a compressed, cymbal-heavy groove. The filters once again come to the fore on the sweet, soul-sampling "Ghetto For You", while "Hotshot" delivers the kind of loose, hazy and jazz-flecked deep house jam - think hazy horns, tumbling chords, held-note strings and bluesy vocal cut-ups - that evokes images of humid days reclining on Adriatic terraces and Mediterranean cliff-tops.

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: The "Bug Crusher" has been a bone-shattering club favourite since 2011 but since then nothing has quite met the mark for many. To end the agonising wait for a rival tune to step forward, Majistrate returns with four almighty remixes to reignite the dance, all of which have stepped forth from the hotly contested Bug Crusher Remix competition. First up, Hedex (named after the migraine medication we presume) pulls the floor from underneath, stripping back the mayhem to reveal a weighty minimal bassline. Dominator follows with a straight-up teeth gnasher, Silent Storm rolls out hard with destructive consequences and Dub Motion gets his teeth into stomping techy beats to match blasts of vintage sampling. It's finally here, so get your dancing shoes on.

Review: For their latest release, Project Allout promise 'pure fire' and 'real big UK garage and bass' from Notion. Well, they've not let us down with Notion stepping up to deliver three tracks guaranteed to smash dancefloors apart from here to Timbuktu. The title track features moody keyboard melodies, sharp 4x4 goodness and even a catchy pseudo rap. "Skankz" brings the bleeps, rave pads and big vocals for some wobbly garage and "How U Feel" mixes speed garage, house and urban vibes for a total sizzler.

Review: Under present sunny circumstances, you'd think crazed-intellectual neurofunk noise would be the last thing on everybody's mind... This EP is a stride out into new directions, stepping through the void to reach past minimal and, in first track "Incessant", right into the guts of hardcore. Noisia teams up with Hybris and Mefjus to create a six-headed beast that is "Clusterfunk" before a entering the black-hole strewn "Reptilians". Meanwhile "Banshee" sees Noisia settle into an eerily tuneful conclusion and it only compounds the feeling that there's still more rage to come.

Review: Whiskey Disco has labelled its latest recruits, the strangely named Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner, as "enigmatic". Whoever's behind the alias, they know a thing or two about crafting alluring and dancefloor-friendly re-edits. Starter "Try My Love" is more than a mere aperitif, delivering a potent blend of eyes-closed, soul-flecked disco goodness, chunky bottom-end swing and a sprinkling of filter-heavy seasoning. "Miracles" is very much the main course, expertly cutting, splicing and rearranging the Jackson Sisters' infamous disco anthem into a remorseless dancefloor roller. Finally, there's a little sugary-sweet dessert in the form of "Tonight", a sleek and spellbinding disco number whose bold pianos and occasional vocal hits leave a delicious after-taste.

Review: Here we have two new sizzling bass bangers from Bristol's future garage hero James Mannion. He doesn't pull any punches either, with "Come Down" featuring growling bass, ghetto beats and catchy synth riffs, and the sparse title track featuring harpsichord style melodies and a hip-house style rap. Remix-wise, PVC presents some skippy, wobbly 2-step, and Crown Duels delivering the jewel in the EPs crown - a schizophrenic, hybrid of scattered beats, stop/start rhythms, eccentric bass and, of course, that rap.

Already getting heat from Rinse FM, it's heavy on the bottom end and this perky 134 bpm stormer marries hard 4 x 4 vibes with throbbin' wobble, strings. Stabs and loopy vocals. Elsewhere, "Saving All My Love" delivers some snarling bass and laser zaps, while "Oi" continues the menacing atmosphere, furthermore Notion joins the party with synthy banger, "Buss".

Review: Strahil Velchev has been a lot of places in his prolific career thus far, but he's never been to Running Back before. With the title track the Hungarian production power house steps up to the plate with a surefire peak time rocker, piling on thick electro synth lines and plenty of techno tension built for the large-scale experience. "Diversion" is no less catchy even if its temperament is far sunnier, working that playful edge that has always accompanied Kink tracks, but then "Pocket Piano (Breakbeat Mix)" throws a curveball in the shape of an old-skool breakbeat groove colliding with warm and fluffy arpeggios before opening up into a joyous piano rave experience.

Review: Deadly Dispatch duo Survival & Silent Witness buddy up for the first time in a minute or two for this superb doublet. Title track "Trust No One" is actually funkier than its name suggests... With a fluid feel to the bass and rolling rhythm, it's reminiscent of an angry Lynx. "Cutter", meanwhile, is a concentrated slab of grunting nasty a la early zeroes Thirty One. Dig deeper for three twists on their 2012 album cut "Fletcher". Minor Rain adjusts the dub factor, Depth Mode get crisp and switchy on the steppy beats while Diecast adds a 140 halftime swag. Trustworthy.

Review: Having spent the last few months unleashing original productions, Spanish producer Rayko returns to his roots with another EP of delay-laden, synthesizer-heavy re-edits. In truth, few rework boogie and electrofunk gems quite as well as the Madrid-based man, so Sweet Somebody is undoubtedly welcome. Naturally, highlights come thick and fast. "Time To Move" expertly dubs out a chiming, loose and oh-so familiar mid-80s boogie classic, while "Sweet Somebody" offers a grandiose, immersive take on a big, Italo-influenced dancefloor-pop anthem. The chugging, intoxicating "Time" is, if anything, even better, with cut-up vocals and sharp guitars riding a dubby, chugging electrofunk groove. Finally, a big chunk of '80s soul gets the extended treatment on "This Is Your Time".

Review: Weekend warriors! Arm yourselves, for Lavela has been remixed. Jaydan's remake of "Get Noisy" is the perfect opener for obvious reasons, while Turno's take on "Warn You" matches Jayden's supersized racket. Dominator's remix of "Enagage" has a touch of old school Pendulum, while for some grooves more flowing check out Jayline's scorching rework to "Imaginary Friend" . For some extra rave antics there's a killer Intraspekt remix of "WTF" which samples that classic Roland Clark track "I Get Deep" and dancehall meets tearout mayhem on Spaow's resmash of "New Dance". Watch your ears.

Review: Greek producer Leonidas DeeJay likes to keep himself busy; impressively, this is his sixth EP of tooled-up, floor-friendly re-edits this year alone. As usual, there's plenty for both disco enthusiasts and househeads to enjoy, from the filter-clad disco-house bump of "Really Sweet, Really Nice" (think compressed bottom end, looped electric bass and stuttering builds), to the whistling melodies, grandiose disco grooves and rubbery bass of the surprisingly jazzy "Atlantic Sunrise". Elsewhere, check the thrilling late '80s synth-pop meets-cheery house cheekiness of "Good Times" - a tongue-in-cheek delight - and the disco-house meets classic US house mash-up business of "Gypsy's Love" (yep, it features the vocal from "Gypsy Woman").

Review: Vibes be high and summery - and those horns - on this remix package for Benny Page's Party With You.

For some glitchy, tear out bass information check Banx & Ranx remix, while Swindles remix is stripped back, but not quite as much as 808charmers. Baseline house be banging on Rico Tubbs remix too, the most linear production on this package.

Review: Fresh from the Cre8 DnB Radio Show comes the crew's backbone - Rowney, DJ Blackley, Certified Sickness, Fineprint and Jaxx all make an appearance to bring the cult radio station to a club near you. Filled with the upfront sounds you'd expect with the creative twists you might not, each producer adds a touch of the unexpected, making this a release you don't want to miss. Highlights include the hyped jump-up of "Not This Time" to the strange, kung-fu film inspired mania of "Get To The Point". There's "Reactor Faliure"'s techy build-up to Fineprint's brutal "Chop Off your Arm" and finally the downright filthy final track "Twisted Tones". After this you'll be a Cre8 convert.

Review: MC General Levy has been involved in countless projects spanning the UK ragga landscape and his instantly recognisable touch on the mic is always a pleasure to hear. This time, however, he lands on Jungle Cakes and his "The General" tune is reworked by Ed Solo into a nu-skool jungle workout with a filthy bassline running underneath Levy's intricate vocal twists. The second remix comes from the Mir Crew and this one is all about the beat work: stop-start jungle breaks slowing down and speeding up to drop into one hell of a groove knot.

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.

Review: DJ Butcher has gathered together an all-star cast for this latest re-edit missive on his always on-point ChopShop label. Experienced scalpel fiend Leftside Wobble kicks off proceedings with "Dope Love", a heavyweight, hip-hop style funk cut-up that makes great use of Candi Staton's vocal from "You Got The Love". Fast-rising, Warrington-based boogie lover 80's Child weighs in with a deliciously glassy-eyed chunk of downtempo soul, before the lesser-known Love Drop delivers "To Prove My Love", a great blue-eyed soul/AOR disco shuffler made from a classic chunk of West Coast stoner rock. Finally, West Country producers Situation steal the show with "Jay Bee", a tasteful James Brown re-work that bobs and weaves in all the right places.

Review: The big bad Wolfe trio make their debut with a handsome EP for the wonderful In:Flux Audio, and with this release the label mainatain the quality of garage and bassline tracks they're known for putting out. The straight-edged "Charlie" is a dubbed-out house stepper with an urban vocal touch, while "Back It Up" is a bass-weighted monster capabale of devouring dancefloors. A clap-centric "Mankey" is a techy hybrid of dub and bass for peak time dealings, and furthermore there's a pretty fine line of remixers too, as Spookz and JG both rework "Mankey" into a sludgier half-step beast.

Review: London's fearsome rave reveller, Spekktrum, doesn't beat around the bush discussing his sound: "I make bassy stuff," he says. Spekktrum doesn'tdilly dally when it comes to production either, and "Babylon Bass" is a straight to the point, wobble-heavy reggae-step jam. For those wanting a little spice, the VIP mix is gets the breaks out for a dubbed-out assault. Elsewhere Dr Cryptic turns the bass to 11 and injects a lethal dose of 4x4 flow. Meanwhile, Negativ delivers a housed-up rework and Spookz closes with a UKF sizzler.

Review: Ondule Records begins life with a clear intent on dropping a minimal kind of disco-edit groove for the contemporary dancefloor, and they're made the right move in asking Joss Moog to contribute. With many a release notched up for Robsoul and more, the Paris resident knows just how to simmer a good lick down its fundamentals as string it out over a mean house groove. "Tous Azimut" is the more heads-down of his two offerings, while "Menage A 3" gets a little feistier in its own insistent roll. Around7 meanwhile keeps the tension up to a maximum on "Super Spectacle" before offering up a more laid-back consideration on "M'as Tu Vu".

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: Big moves from two of the biggest! Grooverider reactivates his Codename John project for this stealth release through Metalheadz. Active intermittently since 1994, the Codename John pseudonym has been an outlet for Grooverider to explore a darker style of steppy DnB that is filled with breakdowns and we are happy to see Metalheadz have coaxed some new material out of him. Fierce and unrelenting jump up vibes run through the title track, whilst "John & Tony" is a constantly mutating barrage through unpredictable bass movements and jagged, steppy drums. Grooverider saves the real screwface material for last though with "Saviour Selector" gleefully spilling with distorted bass and vintage junglist vibes.

"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!

"Big Bad Wolf" is a collaborative effort with the one like Hybrid Theory and the duo have cooked up quite the jacker, where Dubfire-style percussion meets warped vocal shots and a militant groove. "Yuandai" is considerably more UK in nature thaks to its stepping rhythm, and "Shells", too, takes care of the grime vibes. Top stuff!

Review: It's a while since we last heard from Edinburgh-based re-editor B-Jam, who previously impressed with a couple of excellent EPs on Superbreak. Here he resurfaces on Fingerman's Hot Digits label, delivering a selection of edits clearly aimed at house dancefloors. The real killer is "Sundog", which although based on loops from Clout's Balearic, reggae-disco classic "Sunshine Baby", does a terrific job in chopping up and beefing up the original elements. It's accompanied by a housier, acid-flecked rework from Fingerman. Elsewhere, he turns a disco-funk jam into a straight-up house hustler ("Juicer"), reaches for the filters and heavyweight kick-drums on the synth and slap-bass rinse-out "On It", and delivers another deliciously stuttering dancefloor cut-up ("Good Turn Out").

We get loose and funky 90s hip-hop vibes on the Beasties-sampling "Dopesmokah" and "Old Bisties". Meanwhile headnodding retro 70s funk meets party rap on "Bambooka" and the breezy, jazz guitar-laced Balearic house of "Jazzme" wraps things up nicely.

Review: Original Sin's reputation for absolute tearout tunes precedes him and this EP comes with a lot of expectation. Lucky for him then, that every tune smashes it in a multitude of ways. From the heavy histrionics of "No Limit" to the get-on-the-floor-now intensity of "Tetra", "Get The Fuck Out" hams up the B-movie clips like a good jump up track from back in the day before revving up a monumental bassline. Final track "Killer" takes the time to lay back for a second, showing what this man can do with a simple beat and a host of pads at his disposal. For all of 30 seconds before it ratchets up the beat into a face-contorting stepper bound for total destruction. He's here and he wants you on the dancefloor. Are you actually about to say no?

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?

Review: If you've seen Comeme selector Lena Willikens in the dance over the past few months, you will probably have come away wondering what one track in particular is. Reminiscent of a train going full pelt to the sound of a limber xylophone player, the impossibly catchy "Pil Sagol" from Red Axes has been a secret weapon for the Salon Des Amateurs resident for some time, and is finally available for public consumption thanks to Hivern Discs. You should know Dori Sadovnik & Niv Arzi from their work for I'm A Cliche, Highlife Edits, Relish and more but the three tracks here might be their best Red Axes material yet. 12 minute lead track "Todum Todum" is stripped back techno at it's trippiest, especially the mid point deviation into Vangelis territory, whilst "Ma & Abra In Ruanda" presents a breezier, looser side to the Red Axes sound. What else to say about "Pil Sagol" other than it's possibly one of the B sides of the year!

Review: Emerging beat-conjurer Fixate joins the Exit family with an arresting quad of cuts. "Throwback Thursday" (which has been heavily supported by the likes of Friction) gives us an Outlander-style detuned synth hook that's hard to its very core. "Percussive Aggressive" plays with time signatures like they're play-doh while "N2O" does that awesome techy/steppy minimal thing that seems to be a prerequisite for all Exit artists. Finally "Alive" is awash with immersive vocal harmonised synths and driven by snake-like percussive momentum. A really impressive label debut, Fixate ain't no quick-fix situation; he's here for the long one.
