Review: Munich-based Portugese producer Alkalino has earned himself a reputation as one of the most reliable re-editors around. Here, he delivers four more Heavy Cuts for disco-minded house producers, and disco heads that like it heavy. There are some familiar grooves on show - "An Angel" delivers a sturdy, locked-in 4/4 version of all-time classic "Angel In My Pocket", while "Cosmic Dust" brilliantly works a guitar-heavy, tried-and-tested disco groove - but also some reworks of lesser-known gems. Of these, it's probably the strings-and-clav-laden "Wonderful Man" that hits home hardest, though the spiraling jazz-funk stomper "Air" isn't far behind.

Review: On this digital-only three-tracker, Portuguese-in-Munich Lino Rodriguez dusts down and reissues some overlooked cuts from the archives. Opener "Message & Meaning", first released in 2011, is one of his most potent house productions to date - a dense, hypnotic fusion of classic Iberian tribal house attitude, heavy African percussion, foreboding chords and gentle melodies. The previously unreleased "Glocke" continues on this percussive theme, with looser - but no less dense - African rhythms, early Chicago style vocal stabs and disco-friendly party atmos. Finally, the similarly unheard "Parcelas" sees Rodriguez travelling into late night tech-house territory via trippy electronics, heavy bass and wonky sound effects.

Played by: Alkalino
Review: Munich's Audaz imprint is back and it is label boss Alkalino is up this time delivering some of his latest explorations in quality house grooves. Firstly "Work That" is a killer electro house number with a gnarly buzzing bassline working with a tough rhythm groove that's reminiscent of Whirlpool Productions. The persistent "Work 'dat body" chant works a treat too. There's also "Tear The Club Up" which is more like the Alkalino we know on this deep and soulful cut with a funky bassline and just enough shuffle, add some dreamy keys combining with some sampled ghetto house vocals which strangely enough; work quite well!

Review: Given that this is Audaz's 50th release (good going, given that the imprint was only launched in 2011), it seems fitting that it comes from label boss Lino Rodriguez, AKA Alkalino. The Munich-based producer has predictably gone in hard, delivering a quartet of original tracks aimed squarely at late night dancefloors. Opener "Side It Up" seemingly surges from the speakers, with flittering tech-house elements and murky vocal samples riding a wonky, bass-heavy groove. "Drumberg" sees him charge off into tech-acid territory with impressive results, while "Sparkling" sounds like vintage Orbital fused with 21st century German tech-house. Finally, he reaches for the mutant bass, horror textures and acid lines on closer "Minga", arguably the EP's standout moment.

Review: Portuguese deep house/disco hero in Munich Alkalino is back bringing more heat on his always reliable Audaz imprint. Tribute Reworks do exactly what they say on the tin to be honest. Take for instance "Oh Baby" which delivers one very convenient and functional edit of a certain track by the legendary Purple one. While we certainly don't need to reference the sample on "Funky Music" but once again we can never get enough of this one and Alkalino delivers yet another ergonomic revision for modern audiences and dancefloors.

Review: Since moving to Germany, Portuguese producer Alkalino seems to have wholeheartedly embraced the world of original production. Having previously delivered a smattering of deep house tracks here and there, he finally cuts loose on his own Audaz imprint with a quartet of late night shufflers. As with previous, there's plenty of old-skool influences on show - particularly on the soul-flecked, basement-bothering highlight "Much Love" (named after his short-lived project with Alphabet City) and early Orbital flex of "Jungle Dee" - but also some heart US garage-influenced rhythms (see "To Nice") and retro-futurist riffage (check the pianos on "We Jiggle").

from $1.93
Review: Having recently impressed with a string of groovy house productions, Portuguese producer Alkalino returns to the world of the re-edit. There are six sturdy scalpel jobs up for grabs, with familiar favourites and lesser-known cuts getting the cut and paste treatment. Musically, it's surprisingly diverse, touching not just on classic disco ("What You're Doing"), but also soaring '60s soul ("Come Back Baby"), calypso-soul ("Always"), '80s soul ("Throw Your Head Back") and even a spot of Yello ("Moon Sun"). All six edits are impeccably produced, mostly offering the sort of subtle rearrangements that seem to have gone out of fashion of late. As a result, it's an excellent package.

Review: If you're suffering from a post-Christmas slump and are keen to mix things up, this EP of varied edits from Berlin-based producer Alkalino could be right up your alley. Featuring six varied cuts that touch on electrofunk, P-funk, jazz and '80s electro, there's plenty of playable fodder for discerning DJs. Highlights include the talkbox funk and piano solo bizniz of "I Love It", the hustling disco-funk of "Silver Shot" (check the fabulous percussion break halfway through), the jazztime swing of "Janeiro" and the heavyweight Whodini re-cut "Something Funky". Also worth a look is the winding, cosmic oddness of "Warp" - a curious concoction that should appeal to those who like to drop a bit of leftfield disco.

Ghetto Blues - (6:58) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.93
Review: Portuguese producer Alkalino has a nice lifestyle in Munich, dividing his time between DJing at exclusive venues, composing original music and re-editing forgotten favourites. For his first outing of 2015, it's the latter side of his output that takes centre stage. Fireplug boasts two more high-grade re-edits with his usual subtle house shuffle. Virtual A-side "Makes Me Ready" is a suitably classy and subtle rearrangement of a slap bass-wielding deep boogie gem, with glassy-eyed synths and soulful vocals taking centre stage. Meanwhile, "Ghetto Blues" is infectiously Balearic - all baggy grooves (solidified by additional percussion), hazy jazz guitar solos and sun-kissed acoustic guitars. Blissful and dancefloor-friendly: a perfect combination.

Review: Portugese tech deviant Alkalino makes his way back to Audaz with the second helping of the Now I Got Your Attention mini-series, a sub-sector of the man's catalogue reserved strictly for the funkier side of his skills. "Glad To Be A Man" is a chuggy, dusty house swinger complete with audacious vocal chops and beautifully delayed chords, while "Girls For Boys" opts for a deeper and more ethereal approach, giving you the finest in hip-swinging tech-house for floor action.

Morph - (8:49) 117 BPM

Played by: Alkalino
Review: On this latest two-track assault, Munich-based Portuguese producer Alkalino is back in re-edit mode. This time round, he's sidestepped the usual disco, Balearic, soul and funk influences in favour of two tracks that mine the dark, dub-informed worlds of post-punk and punk-funk. He begins with "Next Phase", a deliciously heavy blend of dub-punk bass, punk-funk attitude, trippy deep house touches and an annoyingly familiar, cowbell-laden sample. "Morph" begins with dense, African-influenced tribal drums, before building into a Liquid Liquid-style percussive banger with extra voodoo. Like the A-side, it's the kind of rolling, bass-heavy builder - with additional flashes of deep house wonkiness - that should keep dancefloors going in the wee small hours.

Review: Portugese edit hitman Alkalino drops two new cuts on his home label Audaz, and it seems he's in the mood for some deep and mystical house servings this time around. "Dancing With Somebody" is a true groover, a chunky dance arrangement surrounded by loopy R&B vocals, while "Dance To The House" is distinctly old-school in flavour, a mid-90's joint that has been reworked and twisted into a more contemporary disguise.

Highlights abound but you really can't go wrong with the classic synth hammers of "We Jiggle", the instantly alluring vocal sample on "Distant Future", the smoky croons on "Heavy As Stone" or the squidgy synth funk bass on "Faith". Essential.

Review: Portugal's Alkalino is an expert juggler, always keeping his original productions up in the air alongside his edits. Here though he's firmly plumped for the latter, delivering a whopping 11 scalpel jobs for our listening pleasure. As expected the LP spans everything from vintage disco, cosmic funk and house. Highlights include the slinky, spacey arpeggiated pulser "Band Jive", the raw electro-funk stomper "Suspicious Mind" and the Gallic-tinged Euro/Italo disco seducer, "Je Flash".

Review: Munich-dwelling Lino 'Alkalino' Rodrigues is in a punky mood, well, for the theme his new EP at least. The music therein, however is pure funk, not punk, but there's still plenty of attitude amongst these expert re-edits. "Number One" is a vintage '70s funk anthem (a number one that never was?) in the vein of And The Beat Goes On. Elsewhere its less poppy, with "I Love" sounding like a particularly sparse grinder by Chic and "Break It" ends things with a huge Disco Inferno-style bassline and clattering drums breaks, pure dancefloor gold.

Review: Lino 'Alkalino' Rodriguez continues to yo-yo between edits and original productions. Following some decent deep house outings for his own Audaz imprint, here he returns to the world of edits with a ten-track collection of impressively varied reworks. Predictably, he merrily switches between styles at will, touching on '80s AOR B-sides ("Shine On"), Italo (the excellent "Let's Give It A Try"), Balearica ("Secret Life", a rework of "City Lights"), disco-funk (the bumpin' "Untie Me Down"), art-disco (Arthur Russell rework "Keep On Doing") and industrial funk (the Nietzer Ebb-ish "New Beat"). Predictably, all sound like they'd do suitable damage on dancefloors.

Review: Hot on the heels of Alkalino's From The Vaults EP comes a second selection of forgotten and overlooked gems from the Portuguese producer's seemingly bulging archives. While the first volume focused entirely on his original productions - mostly in a deep house vein - this expansive, 11-track LP focuses more on his disco-leaning work. In practice, that means a range of tracks - both re-edits and remixes- that variously join the dots between disco, electrofunk, soul, funk and deep house. There are naturally plenty of previously unheard gems, from the raw synths and proto-house flex of "Get On Down" rework "U Feel It Thru" and the spiraling, oddball disco-funk of "Guitars", to the baggy Balearic flex of "James Brown" (a tasteful and groovy edit of TomTom Club's "Genius of Love").

Review: Munich's finest and Audaz head honcho Alkalino is back at it again! This guy is really hitting his stride at the moment, so don't stop we say. The vocal mix of "Need Ya" is peak time house with a slick and bumping bassline plus diva vocals and cowbells: all you need really! The "Dub Mix" does exactly what it says on the cover, for those of you less keen on the vocals. Go Alkalino!

Review: Is it disco? Is it minimal? No, it's Alkalino's latest release. Drawing on the tripped out rhythms of minimal house and the sample heavy approach of the disco/edits scene, he delivers "El Che". It's not clear whether the title is a reference to the revered Latin American revolutionary, but the shuffling rhythm and 'French Kiss'-style riffs do provide the basis for Alkalino to sample an uplifting vocal rant en espanol. Whether it's a call to arms or just the meanderings of a random Spanish speaker is unclear. On "Roshna", he veers more towards the kind of jazz-inflected sound of Cadenza, with hollowed out drums and a sonorous bass guiding the way.

Review: While his original productions have their moments, it's fair to say that Alkalino's re-edits are in another league altogether. His semi-regular digital only EPs of scalpel works are rarely anything less than essential. This latest installment, cheekily titled Not On Wax & Still Awesome, contains more A-grade material. The Munich-based Portuguese goes in hard from the off, expertly rubbing up, dubbing out and re-arranging a clav-heavy chunk of primetime disco sleaze ("The Music Plays & Plays"). There's a breezier, watching-the-Mediterranean-sunrise feel about the epic "I Got To Get Away" (an extended tweak of Central Line's "Walking Into Sunshine"), while "I Want To Steal Ur Luv" sees Alkalino delivering a sweet, extra-percussive extension of flautist Herbie Mann's 1975 disco-jazz classic "Hi-Jack".

Review: A perpetual confounder, Portuguese house producer Alkalino, now returns to re-editing (after having appeared to have switched to original production). This second EP of cut and paste jobs features some clever reworking skills on tunes that range from the obvious ("Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy', George Benson's 'Turn Your Love Around'), to more cult tunes like Liaisons Dangereuses' 'Los NiNos Del Parque' and "Gurls". However the standout track here is the accelerated, super-chic version of Change's "Let's Go Together".

Review: More original work here from Portuguese disco don Alkalino. There are only two tracks included this time but seeing as they're both seven to eight minutes each we'll forgive him. He's in a moodier mood too this time too, with "Thebe" being a slice of acid-tinged electroclash-inspired disco with a killer psychedelic middle eight. "Pluto" explores the realms of raw and loose house as heard through a proggy punk-funk prism.
