Review: Four new crucial remixes and edits from Israeli producer Shim Sonic on "Re:Funked" as he breathes new life into The Doors on "Soul Kitchen" and "LA Woman", with a set of punchy nu-funk breaks gelling nicely with the funky-rockin' originals. Lulu's excellent freakbeat classic "Love Loves To Love, Love" also gets the Shimi Sonic treatment, as well as the Fab Four on the booty-spanking "Drive My Car".

Review: As the days get longer and the sun begins to peep out from behind the clouds, thoughts begin to turn to summer nights and al fresco dancing. The lead cut on this EP - a Mouldy Soul remix of "Supernova" - sounds like it was tailor-made for dancing to in the sunshine. Its' breakbeat rhythm and low end bounce are perfectly complimented by some delightfully lazy trombone solos. Blend Mishkin continue the lazy, sun-blushed theme with a cosy downbeat interpretation of "Going Around", while Dephicit delivers a thoroughly breezy re-cut of "Follow Me". A dazzlingly bright EP is completed by a solid hip-hop-soul take on "I'll Take You" by El Bomba.

Review: Tel Aviv's Shimi Sonic shows off his wide range of influences on this new EP for UK label Riddim Fruit. Opener "Supernova" even has a touch of the Pink Floyd about it, with a spacey two-chord jam fleshed out nicely by slide guitars and trumpets, while "Follow Up" mines a cumbia beat and features a fun, carefree vocal from Missin Red. The straight-up studio funk of "I'll Take You" featuring Rowetta on the mic is also well worth a listen if funky breaks are your weakness.

Review: Shimi Sonic grabs the last of this season's rays with a new end-of-Summer release on UK label Brown Sugar. Having previously reworked classics by the likes of The Doors, Shimi Sonic has now recorded a series of collaborations with various international artists; British soul singer Curtis Field takes the lead on the searing Philly soul of "In The Shadows" and Israel's own Karen Perla bellows on the assertive "Got To Move". A returning Curtis Field joins Ireland's Mr Highspeed for the ironically slow motion grooves of "Do What". Shimi Sonic himself wraps things up with a wah wah-heavy funk jam called "Brothers".
