Review: Portuguese producer Lino "Alkalino" Rodriguez has proved to be a shrewd operator when it comes to the art of re-editing, successfully breathing new life into obscure and little-known disco material. Root Edits offers up seven more immaculate scalpel jobs. Opening with the string-drenched soul bump of "Lucky Fellow", Rodriguez offers up a slick selection of smooth and groovy dancefloor faves. Across the seven tracks, he variously touches on anthemic synth disco ("Jamming", a 'fixed' version of The Jammers' "Be Mine Tonight"), curious Italo (a strange cover of Ace's hoary rock classic "How Long"), disco-reggae, disco-rock and, most excitingly, slap bass-wielding 80s alt-disco. All are re-sculpted with the finesse of a true craftsman.

Review: As shown by his previous forays into disco re-edit territory, Portuguese producer Alkalino isn't averse to producing music that emphasizes fun over dreary underground beard stroking. That sense of fun is evident on "Just Like Music", a Marvin Gaye-biting house cut built around cheeky hip-hop samples and some sturdy electrofunk bass. There's plenty of revivalist house fun to be had on "Beware Of The Dog", too, which sounds like it could have been made in 1989 or '90 (check out the retro-futurist riffage). "Gorgol" is a little deeper, but its party atmos samples and dubbed-out riffs still bristle with smile-inducing exuberance.

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: 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: Portuguese house producer Alkalino is back, and for the superbly titled "Weapons Of Mass Distraction", he appears to be on a Euro tip. Sure, "Let Me Kiss You" is more your soul-flecked American rhythm & blues, but "Make It Funky" is pure Latin, Kid Creole style, disco-wave mixed up with some Italo disco sleaze, and "Disco Forza" is simply awesome, raw, throbbing Eurodisco at its finest.

Review: At less than eight quid for 45 tracks, this must be one of the best value collections of re-edits we've come across yet. It boasts a wealth of floor-friendly material from one of the scene's most prolific scalpel merchants, Munich-based Portuguese producer Alkalino. Highlights come thick and fast throughout, from the bustling disco-soul heaviness of opener "I'm A Happy Man Baby" and heavenly San Francisco disco monster "Find A Friend", to the AOR disco/blue-eyed soul sweetness of "Fly Home" and disco-Ska strut of "Memoria". Throw in killer re-cuts of familiar P-funk, Italo-disco, Balearic and boogie favourites, and you have a more than handy package of reworks.

Review: Munich-based Portuguese producer Lino "Alkalino" Rodriguez pops up on Italian label DaBit with a pair of pleasingly warm and toasty deep house cuts. Both "Martin Luther King" and "Isolation" feature inspirational spoken passages from classic speeches, giving each track a quietly uplifting feel. Throw in enveloping chords, pleasingly loose beats, cascading melodies (in the case of "Martin Luther King") and alien electronics (in the case of the more Balearic "Isolation"), and you've got yourself a pair of winners. Sccucci Manucci boss Vorres drops a piano-laden US garage remake of "Isolation", while the mysterious QLab turn "Martin Luther King" into a swinging chunk of late night post UKG-house that boasts delightfully jaunty riffs.

Review: Munich-based Alkalino has earned the respect of everyone thanks to his sublime ability to chop and re-twist tracks into some of the most vibrant edits we've ever heard. Returning to his own Audaz imprint, Blind Eyes gives us some much needed funk for those highly awaited Friday evenings, perfect to wind down to and have a few cold ones with. "Risky Boogie" is simply seductive, where a blinding, progressive bassline hits through to the infamous "star struck! That's what you are..." vocal. "Our World" is another '70s era monster unleashed onto a more mixable platform, and "Big Phreek" adds a more sensual touch to the equation. Another bomb of an EP from Alkalino.

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.

Review: Portuguese producer Alkalino has enhanced his reputation of late thanks to a series of well-regarded original productions. Having previously concentrated on edits, he now seems fully focused on making his own music. "Hot Like The Sun" is typical of his recent efforts, mixing European deep house sounds with elements inspired by "Iberican" tribal and classic US house. The package also includes a veritable sack full of reworks, of which Panaroma Groove Express's classic deep house tweak most impresses. That said, the chiming synth-marimba vibe and tactile drums of the Tonto Dub runs it close.

Mega - (9:29) 120 BPM

Review: Berlin-based Portugese producer Alkalino is rarely predictable, regularly jumping between straight-up deep house, Balearic oddities and disco re-edits. Here he's back on the latter tip, dropping a particularly upbeat chunk of hands-in-the-air action thanks to a couple of excellent scalpel jobs. "Get It" starts as a growling, distorted, fuzzy groove track, but soon turns into a joyous explosion of rubbery bass, clipped guitars, darting analogue synths and strobelight vocals. "Mega" predictably lives up to its name, playing around with a Patrick Cowley-ish high energy robo-disco groove, all shirts-off synths, appregiated groove and howling vocal samples. It's definitely one for the vests-aloft crew.

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").

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: 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.

Ronnie Law's classic, "Always There", is subtly retweaked in sensitive fashion and likewise for Mystic Merlin's storming "Just Can't Give You Up".

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: 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.

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.

Review: By day Portugal's Alkalino is a totally on fire disco-edit dude, but night he gets up to naughtier, house-led shenanigans. This is represented in his Now That Got Your Attention series, and this third installment is probably the best yet. "Far Away" is a sublime eight-minute slice of fizzy, cosmic chug-disco a la Ajello, complete with sleazy vocals and haunted by the spectre of the Human League. "Tonight" is even better: black and velvety melancholic electro-house sprinkled with hushed female vocals and new romantic synthlines.

Review: Prolific Portuguese party pounder, Alkalino, appears to have fully released himself to house, delivering release after release of sizzling electronic jams that have little trace of his disco edit past. The New Light EP boasts two really strong productions, the slighty proggy tech-house mood enhancer "Beat Bons" and the EP highlight, "Mellow Biafra" - which is a totally cool accelerated retro housier with echoes of Ten City's famous laser-stab riffs.

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: Munich-dwelling Portuguese producer Alkalino likes to switch from original productions to deftly executed scalpel edits all the time. However, lately his fingers have been doing more of their surgical ballet on old disco tracks than flicking the faders on his own tunes. Well here's something to redress the balance - "Portuguese Hustler" is an almost seven minute long, slinky afternoon pool party jazzy house joint: all soft chords, chiming piano keys and smooth, sunny vibes.

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!

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.
