Review: Almost one year ago exactly, 'international funk barons', Beatnik City introduced us to their first selection of sensitively retouched northern souls gems on the first volume of this occasional series. Now having fully ingested all the goodness contain therein, we're ready for the next helping. There are ten new wonders to get lost in here. Highlights include hearing The Spinners' timeless melodies given a light and breezy Latin makeover on "Disco Shame", BadboE's smokin' breaks rework of a Velvelettes classic on "Breaking Down Motown" and finally Leygo's percussion-lead stomper, "Feels Good".

Review: No introductions necessary: Suburban Base shaped and fuelled rave music as knew it. Uncle Dugs documents, celebrates and champions rave music as know it. On this quarter-century retrospective Dugs brings everyone up to speed as he moves through the 90s and, in turn, the development of hardcore into jungle and drum & bass. 50 seminal tracks deep, from Remarc's soundclash slewing "RIP" to Marvellous Cain's jungle blueprint "Hitman" via Q Bass and E Type's early explorations into synthesis on "Hardcore Will Never Die" and formative junglism from DJ Hype, our affable Uncle continues to join the dots with the past and the future with supreme levels of detail and knowledge.

Review: A little funk sensibility can be the best of remedies to sooth your winter chills, and this new 20-track compilation from JalapeNo is the perfect remedy. The imprint has it down when it comes to releasing contemporary soul-dance, and peeps like the Ephemerals, Basement Freaks, and Izo Fitzroy are all revelations in of themselves. Just to give you a little flavour of this steaming hotpot of sounds and grooves, there's a little tribal disco slaying on Soopasoul's "Hustlin'", vintage Motown soul with The Allergies and "Since Youave Been Gone", and contemporary r&b vibes through the vocal talent of Alexia Coley and her "Jekyll & Hyde" tune. There's something in here for all walks of life, so be sure to flick through this baby to find your kink.

Review: Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger's recent Vinyl TV show depicted the birth of New York black party culture with the mighty Kool Herc at the helm. Here Dr Packer riffs off that same imagery too, even if his edits are more in the disco vein than that of Herc's hard funk breaks. There are a whopping six edits to wrap your ears around here, highlights include sensuous 70s boogie, complete with electro bassline, of "Disco Lovin", the protracted hiNRG New Order loops of "Monday Blues" and the shimmering, dry ice soul of "Chocolate Boogie". Fun music for fun times!

Review: Bicep has long been fans of Brassica's brand of hard-to-define electronic music, so it's little surprise to see him delivering the latest single on their revitalized Feel My Bicep imprint. He begins with the tactile, four-in-the-morning hypnotism of "Time Tunnel", where spaced out electronics and cyclical riffs ride an ultra-deep, locked-in groove, before doffing a cap to vintage Meat Beat Manifesto and early Orbital on the thrilling "Wryders". You'll then find two interpretations of "Time Tunnel": a warm, hazy and slightly more loved up edit by The Sphinx, and a thrusting, high-octane acid-meets-psychedelic techno assault from Roy of the Ravers.

Review: There's no denying Funk Fusion definitely live up to their name; take these first two tracks which sample and flip Kool & The Gang and Tribe Called Quest numbers into something new and different for 2015. There's also a cheeky garage remake of Basement Jaxx, and for something slower check out the hip hop throw down of Aretha Franklin's "Say A little Prayer For You" by KMT. And have you heard Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" pitched against Sean Paul lyrics? Well you have now. Something for everyone.

Review: Ok folks, it's a new Bomb Strikes release, you should all know the drill by now. Yep, it's all about party friendly breaks and mash-ups here, so leave your arty pretensions at the door, thank you very much. Here we have two self-professed 'funkmasters', Prosper and the suggestively titled Stabfinger hooking up for three sizzling jams. The title track mixes brassy big beat and daisy age rap, whilst "Don't Hold Back" is pure hands-in-the-air poppy electro funk before "Baby Baby Please" wraps it all up nicely with an infectious fusion of electro-swing, rap and cumbia beats.

Review: Crate digging in the Northern Soul scene is the gift that keeps on giving - an endless quest for rarer and rarer gems. Here Beatnik present a new collection that features nine classic Motown and Northern Soul cuts which have been sensitively retouched by some contemporary talent. Highlights include the celebratory, fizzy soul jam "Soul On Fire" by Shaka Loves You (yes, the one sampled by Beyonce), a Junkie XL-style makeover of Martha & The Vandellas on "Nowhere To Go" and Mak & Mr Bristow's muscled up take on The Rascals - "Olympic Lovin".

Review: Famed for their Stank Soul Edits vinyl series, Mako & Mr Bristo return on Funk Blasters with the mightily titled, Electric Bongo Disco. The name captures the vibes on here pretty well - four vintage cuts loved for their breaks gently souped up for modern dance floors. Opener is "Sugar Hill Bongos", which lovingly updates a Sugarhill Gang classic. Elsewhere "Hype Fresh Mine" is poppy disco meets hip house, "Refried Beans" is a sweet vintage B-boy gem and "Electric Ruffneck" really goes there, sampling Edie Grant and somehow making it actually sound cool! Now that's talent.

Now it's time to shake it up at every house party you can find this summer! Highlights include Bang N Mash's funky old skool Eric B mash-up "I Got Soul", Chudy's "So What?" which intertwines the Tom Tom Club and Destiny's Child to sizzling effect and finally DJ Clairvo who fuses big beat, ragga and vintage organ stabs on "Here Me Now All Massive". Boom!

Review: The clue is in the title here as Brighton-based funk label Jalepeno have rounded up fifteen of the best soul sister cuts from their mighty catalogue. Boasting a mix of old and new, and spanning quite a few different styles too, this compilation couldn't have come soon enough. Some of the many highlights featured include the powerful and bluesy soul-bearing opener, "Reckoning" by Iro FitzRoy, the candy floss tones of Berenice Van Leer on the 80s-tastic "My Mind' Made Up" by Kraak & Smaak and the muscular harmonies of Farina Miss on Featurecast's "Ego Tripping".

Review: When most daddies get home, you know you're in for it over some misdemeanour or other. Not this one, when he gets home it's all about the party. Father Funk wouldn't know deep or dark music if it came up and slapped him in the face Tango-style. Instead he does what he does best, like here where he presents five fruity, happy tunes to make us all forget our woes. Some of our faves include the buzzy-electro-bas-and-go-go-beats of the title track, the frantic funk workout of "Block Party" and the 80s soul-sampling hip-house sing-a-long "Soul City".

Throughout this LP you'll find vocals from Notorious BIG, Snoop Dog and Beastie Boys mixed with Stevie Wonder classics, Aretha Franklin and Basement Jaxx - blasphemy? You be the judge.

Review: Ireland's king of the sample, Johnny Pluse is rarely heard without the backing of his Stormtroopers Of Love crew. Here however, he kicks off the year by bravely going it alone for solo album "Lasers 17". Heavily indebted to the early 90s hip hop stylings of Beastie Boys and/or Cypress Hill, tunes like "Don't' Be So Dramatic" and "Its Some Craic" charge out of the gates in a furious flurry of turntablist cuts and breaks. Elsewhere highlights include the electro attack of "We Need More Lasers" and the surprising feelgood anthem "Drinkin In The Sun".

Review: From their recent online musings, it seems that the award-winning Scour Records seem to be as equally fond of the other type of swinging as they are the style of music they've done so well at releasing thus far. Thankfully here we're only about the music and what a lot of it there is on Scoured Swing Vol 1. Here label owner DJ Spinforth selects eight of the best new jams around. Highlights include the classy, laid back opener "About Me" by The Fritz, the dubstep-meets-Charleston vibes of "Swingers" by Father Funk and the epic electro-swing monster "Cufflinks & Caviar" by Tuxedo Junction.

Review: It's been a while since Irish party slappers Dirty Dubster delivered a ragga package but here we find them making up for lost time with four rock steady heaters. No genre unturned, each cut reps ragga's broadest reaches: "Walk Like A Champ" swings low with a guttural dancehall feel, "Bangerz N' Goulash" tips a nod at a Diplo classic over a salubrious digidub groove while "Follow Me" shreds up on a high energy D&B flex. For most, though, the key cut will be KayPod's Marley-mashing "Could You Be Push Forward". Could this be loved? Yes siree.

Review: Less than two years deep into their groove crusade and Funk Fusion teeter on their 20th compendium of party-firing bangers. But first, volume 19 - an all-out session the leaves no stone unturned. Expect nothing but turbo charged gospel ("Happy Break"), Skillz-sampling rap damage ("Gotcha Ed Noddin'"), Wonder-full synth subversions ("Super Tissues"), Chemical Zeppelin chaos ("Block Rockin Love") and a Dre-meets-Biggie missile that's so explosive it should come with a health warning. Revel levels set high on this one.

Review: Funky Breaks, Ghetto Funk, Nu Funk, Glitch Funk, Nu Skool & Old Skool Breaks: you name it, they got it! London's Funk Fusion are back with Fused Funk Volume 16, which is a whopper of a compilation; 17 servings of block rockin' beats which will suit any occasion.. almost! Some of the highlights on here (and there's quite a few) are: "More Diggity" by Jay Tip; no guesses what this is a remix of (hint: Blackstreet!) but there's no hints for which rock'n roll classic got mashed up with jump-up drum and bass on Phat Bangers Club's "Wah Wah Everybody". Elsewhere, Sticky Icky's "I Wanna Hold You" takes the timeless classic by The Beatles and injects it with some tough breaks.

Review: Although the cover of this latest instalment in the Paradise Breaks series echoes the famously trippy sleeves of '70s prog rockers like Yes, the music couldn't be more modern. Actually that said, many of the productions on here do plunder the '70s for inspiration but they choose funk over wizard's capes and that. Highlights include the mighty "Bad Mother" which combines raw soul divas vocals, wah-wah guitars and thumping break beats, J-Sounds' tight and groovy break-funk jam "On And On" and the super catchy shuffle-pop gem "Nobody Else" by Arteo. A totally mixed bag and all the better for it.

Review: Roll up, roll up! Break Beat Paradise present a clash of the party breaks titans, DJ B-Side Vs DJ BadboE. Both acts have released party fodder separately before, now though they're together in this mean soundclash (actually BadboE is the label owner). This time there are four tracks all in the trademark party breaks vein beginning with the electro-funk-rap jam "Funk Me Again", before Usher gets a go-go sing along makeover on "Rewind It Back". Next "Do You Wanna Ride" sees vintage big band samples blend with hip-house and finally "Get Busy" ends with a Groove Armada/lush disco fusion. Boom!

Review: By the power of Greyskool, scalpel fiends Dave Gerrard and Rob Bairstow pop up on Masterworks Music with the follow-up to their 2015 debut, Inside The Box. They begin with a cheeky curveball: a punchy and floor-friendly re-imagining of Gino Latino's 1988 Euro-house hit "Welcome". "Room Full of Strangers" is a fine scalpel work of Candi Staton's superb, mid-tempo disco anthem "Nights On Broadway" - this time with a little extra low-end chug - while "Something Shady" is a fine rework of Labi Siffre's "I Got The..." that subtly gives it a little more dancefloor oomph. Finally, they make a play for "end of night edit of the year" with a tastily looped-up rearrangement of Stephanie Mills' super-sweet "Wha'cha Gonna Do With My Lovin".

Review: Stanton Warriors have been on a mission to bring us the finest broken beat and heavy bass on Punks Music since 2001. Here the debut volume of the their new 'Punks Selection' series is curated by Mafia Kiss and focuses in 'on the deeper/stripped sounding side of the label's roster'. There is a whopping 22 track featured, as well as a one-hour DJ mix. Highlights include the urgent, haunted bounce of "The Oracle" by Leda Stray, the sultry, late night breakbeats of "K2" by Aloka and the scattershot ghetto beats of "Check Me Out" by Sly One.

Review: The breaks/garage anthem that refuses to quit almost 15 years after its initial release, Zinc's "138 Trek" has always remained relevant through every party paradigm that's followed. Here Bingo Bass revisit its many charms and versions for those who had no use for the recent vinyl outings. We all know how the original and VIP flex, but you may have missed the GQ version that comes with a little added grime finish or the Zed Bias mix which takes us on a sassier, steppier UKG vibe. Some tunes mature like classic Aston Martins. This is one of them.

Played by: Funk Fusion
Review: The Funk Fusion label deal exclusively in cheeky breaks-led reworks of only the most popular tunes. With a furious release schedule that has seen the imprint deliver record numbers of bulging compilations, they are the undisputed masters of party breaks. Here on their 20th collection we more of exactly the same, the way we like it. Highlights includes the Jimi Hendrix/Chemical Brothers collision "Jimi's Chemicals" by Ghetto Cats, the mangled funk of their Tupac/Dre rejig "Californian Glove" and the drum heavy grooves of Biggie Smalls/80s kids show mash-up "Notorious Tank Engine" by Tweek Unique.

Review: Its not often we have the pleasure of a full solo release from crowd-pleasing party animal Badboe. Normally found nestled in re-edit compilations, Ghetto Funk Testament sees him present four solid tunes aimed strictly at the dancefloor. Opener "Eye Of The Beholder" begins proceedings with a cheeky 70s funk loop and loose beats, "Feels Like Funking You Up", manages to meld Leo Sayer and hip-hop (no easy feat), "Refuse To Quit" is a sing-along funky shuffle and finally "Start Up The Phonograph" is house party-smashing daisy age hip-hop at its finest.

Review: The Danish may be all serious about design, but when it comes to partying the Breakbeat Paradise crew prove that they can be as frivolous as the rest of us. Here they've rustled up a bumper packed collection of cheeky if disposable mash-ups and edits of the kind that'll go down a storm in bars and house parties. There are six offerings some highlights of which include the squelchy retro funk breaks of "Walk In Place" by F-Block, the cut-up go-go boogie of "Free Wheelin Franklin" by Kibosh and the raw big beat swing hybrid "Hit Em Hard" by Blitzkrieger.

Review: Its mash-up central on the Here We Come EP, and just in time for the Christmas party season too! The tunes contained on this single ain't gonna win Ivor Novello awards, they will, however, have you wearing clip-on antlers and swinging from the rafters having drunk too much punch. The title track fuses a Duran Duran (or James Brown?) guitar lick, big beats, and the Fugees. Elsewhere "Bring That Beat Back" is a bouncy Missy Elliott rework and "Bounce With Me" takes a De La Soul classic and give it a tropcial/baile hype-up. Party dynamite!
