Review: Clash Of The Titans here, with Clapham house heroes Groove Armada having their back catalogue given a good seeing to by Manchester's tape-wielding disco maniac, Greg Wilson. It's quality from the get go, starting with "The Girls Say" now reworked into an awesome early 80s synth funk workout that would make Rick James proud. "DIY Disco" is celebratory retro electro-disco at it's finest, while "Love Sweet Sound" is a happy-sad cowbell disco journey of immense proportions. Finally we end proceedings on old skool electro tip with 'Save Our Souls" sounding like a vocodered alien invasion.

Review: Say what you like about Groove Armada, they've always been good at tailoring their tracks to suit current trends. Hence this second EP for Hypercolour explores various facets of contemporary house. So, "Activate My Heart", 'The Vicksburg Cut" and "Always Take Me Higher" sound like the big room-bating shufflers so beloved of the Crosstown Rebels and Visionquest labels, "Chicago Chicago" sounds like a reboot of "This Is Acid" (minus the needless rap, mind) and "Don't Take Your Love Away" sounds like Tensnake gone ravey. That's lots of boxes ticked, then.

Review: It's testament to Groove Armada's love of underground music that they have chosen to re-appear not in the afterglow of corporate EDM but on the excellent Hypercolor label. Over the course of this four-tracker, they also show that their repertoire extends far beyond "At The River". "Oh Tweak To Me" and "Stevie Late Night" are redolent of that grey area where punk-funk and acid house sometimes get it on, with dubbed out drums and trippy effects cosying up with wired acid lines and half-heard vocals. At the outset, "There Was Rhythm" suggests they are going to plough a darker furrow, but when the soulful keys and evocative vocals kick in over the crashing snares, the listener is treated to the best of both worlds. The woozy synths of "Luv 91"complete this remarkable comeback.

Review: Having previously given us "Black Light" and "White Light", veteran festival-bothering behemoths Groove Armada switch bulbs once again. This time, they've opted for a nice Red Light, an obvious forewarning of the sleazy, old skool influenced house grooves contained within this five-track offering. Be sure to check the hoover bass madness of "Oscillator Love" (akin to a long-lost R&S banger), the mid-90s NYC tribal grooves of "Torrentes" (very Tenaglia) or the near-anthemic opener "The Pleasure Victim" (like a faster version of GA spin-off Morten Sorensen) - all tick exactly the right late night boxes.

Review: Hypercolour have pulled off a bit of a coup by bagging themselves a formidably floor-friendly rinse-out from veteran festival favourites Groove Armada. With veteran dancehall toaster Slarta John on the mic, "Pull Up" sounds like a UK Funky-era take on Basement Jaxx's "Jump and Shout", or GA's own "Superstylin". The headline remix comes from talented bass music separatist West Norwood Cassette Library, who offers up a booming but bouncy mix that's just a little more cultured - if no less floor-friendly - than the hectic original. Label regular Alex Jones delivers two contrasting versions, with the classic underground house sheen of his second version taking the plaudits.

Review: 10 years on from its initial release, Groove Armada's contribution to the Anotherlatenight series gets a new lease of life. For those searching for deep, downtempo and vaguely Balearic fare, it's well worth a look. While Groove Armada's mix is enjoyable enough, it's the unmixed tracks that are most worthy of attention. Amongst the familiar classics (Kleer's boogie classic "Tonight", Mr Fingers' "Can You Feel It" and Metro Area's "Muira"), you'll find hot curiosities from the likes of Shuggie Otis (the decidedly acid-fried "Strawberry Letter 23"), Loose Ends ("Feel The Vibe"), Good Together (forgotten super-deep house jam "Work It Out") and Don Ray (the heady disco grooves of "Standing In The Rain").
