Review: As the title suggests, this five-tracker from the previously re-edit-happy Editorial imprint showcases slo-mo disco/house crossover cuts from a selection of mostly little-known producers (the fast-rising Matthew Kyle aside). For those who've been digging the superb releases of labels like Sleazy Beats, Wolf Music and Instruments Of Rapture, Slo-Motion Potion comes highly recommended. It's largely impressive stuff, with DJ Butcher's epic "Shake Your Body", Kyle's deliciously sensual "Off My Mind" and 78 Edits' heady opener "Come On Baby" standing out. That said, the whole package is well worth a listen.

Review: This two-tracker from Subsoil offers an interesting approach to the edit-not-edit genre. Instead of collecting together a bunch of different edits, they've decided to get two producers - in this case Changed and Editorial veteran Disco Tech - to rework the same (uncredited) disco/soul original. Changed is up first, offering a slick, sultry and occasionally sensuous interpretation that sits somewhere between the head-nodding disco/house of Matthew Kyle and the fluid disco of the original. Disco Tech's version, meanwhile, takes some time to build before letting the original chorus and strings take over. His use of drops and FX is, in particular, excellent.

Review: For this 11th edition of the Whiskey Disco series, Sleazy McQueen has gathered together a series of decidedly loved-up re-edits, many with a real AOR feel. That's certainly the case with "Moonlight" - a wonky bundle of 6am sunrise hugs edited into shape by Yves Saint Lau'rant - and Anthony Mansfield's delightfully subdued "Cosmic Annie". There's some straight-up party flavours in the shape of Disco Tech's bumpin' rework of perennial Dolly Parton fave "Jolene", while Cole Medina successfully dubs out a deep house love song on "Your Love".

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: Despite delivering a smattering of original nu-disco productions over the years, producer Disco Tech is probably most famous for his sneaky but relatively faithful reworks of classic funk, soul and disco cuts. Here he returns to the re-edit field, reworking more sweet soul and funk jams. "Waiting On You" delivers a slick, floor-friendly take on Al Green, while "Devil's Work" subtly tweaks a midtempo funk-soul gem. More revolutionary is "You Got The Stuff", a formidably loopy chugger that ekes maximum joy out of a delicious groove. Elsewhere, check the suitably slow and dewy-eyed "Inside Is Love" and "Take Me As I Am".

Review: A classy set of rerubs from the Disco Tech crew - this time adding some subtle beats to b-boy classics like Gwen McCrae's "90% of Me Is You" and Wendy Rene's "After Laughter Comes Tears" (sampled by the Wu-Tang and recently rejigged by Nicolas Jaar too). There's also tasty beefed-up versions of Al Green and UK soul man Eddy Grant too.
