Review: LTJ X-Perience is an Italian slow-disco re-edit guy, Luca Trevisi, who has an impressive string of releases under his belt. Following his recent artist album I Don't Want This Groove To Ever End, he now delivers this non-album track. As you might expect "What I Feel" is a mega-slow (94bpm!), lolloping funk workout, laden with an incessant guitar riff, bass loop, cosmic swishes and stoner trumpets that would make Herb Alpert proud. One listen and you'll feel like you're flying, in slow motion of course, through fluffy clouds with a cocktail in your hand.

Review: The artist occasionally known as LTJ Experience offers up a one track single, and it's really rather good. Taking its cue from the "disco sound of 2011" - i.e a floor-friendly fusion of disco loops with subtle house bottom end - "I Don't Want This Groove To Never Ends" [sic] gently undulates for nearly nine minutes. The changes are very subtle - the odd dash of dub FX here and there, percussive elements dropping in and out of the mix, and some slick filter action - but the groove is so good you don't want it to stop. Recommended.

Review: Deep house hero LTJ is back with an exclusive one-tracker and his one man disco! Well, the body of "Giving Back" of course follows his expected thumping, deep groove formula, but he's added quite a few extra spices into the recipe here. Sounding much like the kind of rolling mid-tempo fare that the likes of Leftfield were often known for, this eight minute epic also features a sample of a twangy disco bassline, spacey whooshes and exotic percussion.

Review: LTJ (he of "Experience" fame) returns with another single-track missive for his own Hot Groovy imprint. As usual, his main concern is slo-mo funk, and "Get Down" has it in spades. Sat somewhere between the smooth bump of Revenge-ish slow-house, the shuffle of head-nodding disco edits and the dirty groove of vintage funk, "Get Down" seems to inhabit a space all of its own. With the action focused on some down-low grooves and an urgent vocal loop, it has all the energy of a peaktime stormer, despite clocking in at a little over 100 BPM. In short: it's a bit of a belter.

Review: Slow and steady wins the race, right? It should also win over that dancefloor of yours when it's as expertly crafted as this. As with all previous LTJ releases, "Funk Is On" is all about the groove and, indeed, the development thereof. New elements such as extra synth textures, vocal snippets and percussive tools introduce themselves slowly and politely as the track builds and builds with a sense of cool understated drama. Weighing in at a cool nine minutes, and not a dull moment, this is LTJ at his finest. But then what did you expect from Hot Groovy?

Review: Not to be confused with any liquid drum & bass producer, LTJ is a true fiend of low slung deep house and this plain and simple track preaches his gospel with effortless aplomb. The title gives it away, but this is a track that works around an austere funk hook and rides it out for ten minutes of cool jamming. The bass rumbles laconically, the vocals drift in and out through filters and the guitar licks trip over each other in a delicious discoid fashion. It's a simple trick superbly executed for the warm-up slot.
