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: 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: 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.

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: 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: Lino 'Alkalino' Rodriguez is getting straight to the point with the title of the latest release on his own Audaz label. The music featured also has a similar no-nonsense attitude, being all attention grabbing party starters. "Love That Funk" is an excellent electro-disco-boogie banger with an underlying hi-NRG feel. 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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.

Review: More from Munich-based Lino "Alkalino" Rodriguez, who, having recently showcased his re-editing and original production skills, delivers a pair of previously unheard remixes. There's a warped, bass-heavy, techno-tinged late night feel to Rodriguez's version of Arno's "Lokalderby", with the Portuguese producer wrapping rave-influenced stabs and late night electronics around a booming, after party-friendly groove. There's a similarly murky feel about Rodriguez's version of Deep Blast & Ricco Rizzo's "Lufthans", with detached electronics and bittersweet melodies riding a shuffling, early morning groove. Both tracks seem designed to be played loud in dark German basements, somewhere around 4am.

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.

Essential.

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.

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: 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: There seems to be a real love of classic house around at the moment and Alkalino has dived straight in. "Easy" kicks things off with Alkalino's more organic retake on Rare Pleasure's Let Me Down Easy which was made famous by David Morales. Elsewhere we get infectious, elasticated funk on "Get Up", slinky, low-slung late night grooves on "Kingston Town" and meandering and moody Afro-house on "Drums Of Kenya".

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.

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!

Morph - (8:49) 117 BPM
from $1.95
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: 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".
