Review: Michael The Lion differs from the average re-edit chancer by actually recording extra musical parts for his re-tweaks. Here on his Most Known Edits EP he applies extra guitars, bass, keyboards and percussion to a selection of fairly well known 70s dance tunes. First up the immortal Love Hangover by The Fifth Dimension gets some extra bounce and fizz on "The Hangover", "Know This" sees the raw emotion of the People Choice original gently beefed up and filled out, "Fly Robert" is a chugging boogie locomotive of a tune and "Bo Knows" ends things with a Latin-tinged percussive spectacular.

Review: Michael The Lion pops up on the ever-reliable Razor N Tape imprint following high quality outings on Soul Clap and Giant Cuts. This time round, he's following the Kon blueprint of blending edit style rearrangement with the heavyweight swing of house production. He begins with the soulful disco-house throb of "Anytime" - all extended percussion breaks, piano-heavy sweetness and life-affirming vocals - before charging off on a cheeky Italo-disco direction with "The Don". "Get More" is a killer, high octane re-cut of Lorraine Johnson's obscure cover of Teddy Pendergass favourite "The More I Get, The More I Want", while closer "909s and Herb" - a co-production with Sammy Bananas - blends elements from Herb Alpert disco classic "Rise" with all manner of brand new synths, drums and samples.

Review: Given his history in the disco re-edit scene, it's perhaps unsurprising that Michael Fichman's first EP for Soul Clap contains a couple of bona fide mirrorball treats. Chief amongst these is "Get it On (Bosq Remix)", a brilliant chunk of revivalist vocal disco full of authentic instrumentation, including Nile Rodgers style guitars, a fine walking bassline and on-point percussion. DJ Bruce provides two killer, gospel inspired revisions of the track, too: the pared-back, pianos-and-bongos vibe of the "Feeling Mix" and the stretched-put, organ heavy gospel disco roller that is the standout "On & On Mix". Fittingly, both make much of Amy Douglas's inspired vocal. Elsewhere, "Side of Life" is a preacher-sporting chunk of sunshine disco and "The Changer" joins the dots between chugging dub disco and throbbing Italo-disco.
