Review: Having previously delivered both chunky disco edits and cheeky, bootleg style reworks, the usually reliable Chopshop crew offer up an EP dripping with soul and funk. Included is a loose, hip-hop tempo rework of deep jazz-funk standard "Nautilus" from Copycat (ideal for those bar sets/warm up moments), a head-nodding, heavy 4/4 tweak of an odd electrofunk record from DJ Raw Sugar, and a dubbed-out take on James Brown ("The Boss") by Discotech. Best of all, though, is DJ Agent 86's "Give It To Me Baby", a cheeky, horn-toting rework of freaky 80s funk legend Rick James.

Review: Producer, DJ and, according to Twitter, coffee enthusiast Raw Sugar turns in an impressive three track missive via Giant Cuts. The soulful tones of "What If We Make It" serves as a pleasing appetiser for the title track, which leans on an oft used Marvin Gaye sample but dips it in Sugar's own production style. The more stripped back, Chicago-indebted dub of "Eins Zwei Disco" rounds off a solid and diverse EP.

Review: On previous outings for Gazeebo, Chopshop and others, Kiwi disco boffin DJ Raw Sugar has blurred the boundaries between the humble re-edit and sample-heavy trickery. Here he offers up a wonderfully atmospheric, slo-mo burner that's more original composition than cheeky scalpel job. "Disco Land" bumps along on a loose, languid break, utilizing swirling organs and starry synths to create a delightfully hypnotic mood piece. Much contemporary 'slo-mo' music can be infuriatingly rigid; "Disco Land" is almost the polar opposite. Label boss Gazeebo stretches out the groove and adds a head-nodding kick on his epic rework, while bonus cut "I Wanna Give You My Love" swims in the crystal clear waters between elastic disco and comfy deep house.

Review: For their latest sneaky dancefloor assault, serial scalpel bandits Gazeebo look to DJ Raw Sugar for inspiration. He duly delivers, offering up a tasteful "Redub" of Marlena Shaw's much-played (and much-sampled) "Woman Of The Ghetto". It's a subtle transformation, adding some nice electronics and dubby deep house swing to the original groove. If you dig the Marathon Men material on GAMM, this will be right up your alley. Hotbox and Gazeebo are also on remix duty; the latter lays down a Balearic-ish interpretation that dispatches with much of the charm of the original, while the former go all touchy-feely deep house with solid results.
