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: Phibes specialises in delivering no-nonsense floor filling party jams. His Ghetto Beats release from late last year undoubtedly soundtrack many a Christmas and New Year party. Well now it's Spring and he's decided its time for a follow up. Volume 2 has a hip-hop theme, beginning with opener "Gangstas N Honeys" where a classic Nas rap is set to a perky, tough big beat backing track. Vintage sounding brass is added to the crowd-pleasing formula on "Real Hip Hop", "Belong To You" mixes electro and 70s soul and things wrap up with the arms-in-the-air anthem "Getting Funky Round Here".

Point Blank (feat Nuvaman) - (5:11) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.18
Review: Welcome to the fracture clinic: Delo makes his debut on GRNDWRK with a delicious slice of broken music. Rapid breaks and gritty bass provide the ageless rave template where heads are down and the groove is bittersweet. Subversion fans should lick up Nuvaman's take on Delo's previous roller "Point Blank". Laced with depth plunge subs on the kicks, it's not dissimilar to the type of grit LFO used to blow minds with back in the day.

Review: Aussie party label Adapted Records like to let the music do the talking, although the title of this here compilation, Glitch & Funk Vol 2, pretty much fills you in. Now what is inside is 11 tracks all crafted for the specific purpose of simply having fun. Mid paced opener "Smile" by Faux Fur, marries a steady breaky groove with hip flavours (plenty of scratching) and some vintage soul sounds and a smooth female vocal. Elsewhere we get electro swing with extra funk on "Bootleg Brass" by Stepcat and the blue-sky synthpop vibes of Bobby C Sound TV's "Europa".

Vehement - (4:07) 140 BPM
from $2.18
Review: London beatcrafter Sh?m finally goes legit as he translates his Soundcloud hype into official release business with "Bossmode" on Kapsize. "Bossmode" fits the Kapsize suit perfectly with its Joker-style purpleness and strutting/squelchy sci-fi dynamics. Elsewhere on the EP we chow down on robot gully with "Underground" and take things back to the slinky, jazzy dubstep days with "Untitled". Finally we climax with "Vehement", a vibrant slice of synthtronica that stutters and shakes with evocative funk and emotion. A truly interesting EP. If you're the proud owner of a radar and Sh?m isn't on it, you're not using your radar properly.

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: Should you want to turn your place into a swinging cantina let Beatnik City's first release of The Latin Leaks be your soundtrack, and slam those tequila's to "Uhh! Ahh". There's some sampled Wu Tang thrown in among a clamour of drums in "Shimmy Cumbia", while tempos are lowered in "Lift Ma Soul". For some electro-swing vibes check out "Golden Boy" and get tropical on "Real Smooth". Consider your next fiesta sorted!

Review: Although label boss Mooqee is perfectly capable of striking us with party bombs, he occasionally recruits his pal Herbgrinder to help smash those dancefloors. "Sound Around Town" was one of those thrilling jams, and here we now see it revived through a string of new mixes. First up Funkanomics fuse the incessant organ riffs with tight skippy beats and arpeggiated basslines, Beatvandals UK take us on funky drummer trip to the late 80s and Mooqee himself steps up for a sizzling VIP mix that's full of tough beats, cut up samples and a subtle dubby undercurrent.

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.

Notorious BIG makes an appearance on this compilations opener while JLO vocals and dirty electro can be found on "Get Right". Scale down the tracklist and you'll come across J5, old school funk and flutes to The Champs - Tequila!

Review: Ex-pat boogie peddler Doug Masters (now based in Australia) has been doing his thing as D-Funk for well over a decade, releasing popular party tunes through his two labels (Upstart Music and Grits N Gravy), and here is his latest release. The Funk Jammer EP features three new tunes that, if not being straight up covers, all reference famous tunes. "Get Up & Jam" doffs its cap to classic p-funk and boasts a mighty hand waving anthemic spirit, "Bumper Jam" is classic party breaks fodder with nods to Grace Jones and "Dope Jam" looks to both daisy age hip-hop and Barry Gibb's Grease for inspiration.

Review: For a label that only launched this spring, four volumes of creatively executed party jams is beyond impressive. We reckon this could be Funk Fusion's best yet, too. From Rhythm Scholar's respectfully tripped out twist on "Lucy In The Sky" to Fabioulous Barker's slap-bass blazed take on Skeelow via the funkiest ever version of 2Pac's "California Love", it's an impressive collection that leans towards the more subtle art of editing rather than crass bootleg cut-and-shuts and will have a lot more timeless appeal as a result.

Review: Featurecast is a veteran crowd-pleasing producer whose work dates back to the excellent Brighton label Catskills. He's been responsible for many party bangers in his time, and this latest release for Jalapeno finds Featurecast exploring a different side. Gone are his mash up anthems and instead we encounter his breaks and DnB influences over two tunes. First up is "999" which is a jaunty breaks-pop romp featuring a ragga MC for maximum good time vibes. Elsewhere the fun loving party producer gets serious for once on the drum & bass meets stadium EDM epic "Anticipate Nothing". Powerful stuff!

Review: Rumours that party producer Tom Booze records everything whilst completely hammered are yet to be confirmed. However one listen to his latest, the Get Fonky EP, and you'd be forgiven for believing them. This is no bad thing as both tracks here, "You Had It All" and "Get Fonky With It", both posses a certainly woozy, slo-mo charm. The former sees a delicious early 80s boogie jam grind along at 55 bpm, whilst the latter sees classic bloc rockin', anthem-mongering marry some lazy breaks for some classic p-funk party vibes.

Review: Ireland may not be the first place that springs to mind when discussing reggae. Now, following the success of recent album Special Request, the Emerald Isle's Dirty Dubsters (DJ Obese and Jay Sharp) are back with the distinctly Jamaican vibes of pop-dancehall ditty, "Old Vet Again". Further on there are three more new tracks to enjoy - the dubby 2-step hybrid "Street Ruff", the speedy DnB of "Sky Larker" and the feelgood Maytails/Tone Loc mash-up "Monkey Madina". Fun!

Review: Destination 60s as Beatnik City follow up last year's breakthrough compendium "The Rio District" with an exploration of pop roots, contemporised by swinging breakbeats and premium party signatures. Instantly recognisable jams include the ill behaviour of Ree Keen's take on "Louie Louie" and the ongoing beat mischief of Fab Samperi's homage to Sonny & Cher but the slightly less obvious versions shouldn't be overlooked either... The frenetic harmonica-snapping of Leygo's "Loose Wheel" and the lounge-writhing slipper jazz of Mad Doc's "Nori's Gem". Authentic big beat business.

We kick off with a bulbous flip on Desmond Dekker's "Easy" before 'lively mode' is activated with a very well polished take on a classic reggae version of Smokey Robinson's "My Girl". You want to get even livelier? Look no further than "Heads Boppin'", Nutjob's twist on The Selector's "On My Radio". "I'm Skankin' Out" is the cherry on top of this very tasty cake. Adding a Jamaican sparkle to the Diana Ross sampling Biggie classic, Nutjob's successfully fused hip-hop, disco, reggae and breaks all into one track... And he's done so in style.

Review: Paul Woolford's first Special Request material since signing to XL, he's gone right back to the roots (roots which XL helped dig and plant themselves) with nine tracks of heady, sweaty rave evangelism. Labelled as three EPs in one, it's as good as 2013's debut album with every track tailored for the dancefloor. From the brain-melting warped bass and tension/release of the title track we dig deep into breakbeat science... "Amnesia" is the sound of 1991 when hardcore first found its feet, "Reset It" tips it cap to A Guy Called Gerald, "Damage" ups the ice factor with synths so cold they could make Randall shiver while "Take Me" and "Simulation" are both unfettered love letters to the earliest chapters of the Whistle Crew. We could go on, but we're pretty sure you know the score... Hardcore.

Review: A firm face on the Disco Cakes roster now, HZ returns to Deekline's imprint with another clutch of savage-but-sweet shake-ups. "Deepa Underground" takes Jamiroquai into glitch city town square and whip them repeatedly until they do their best performance. "Boot Me Down" takes Nancy Sinatra down to the Atlanta ghetto and shows her the murky side of trap life. The real highlight, though, is the turbo-charged, go-faster-striped twist on Eminem and Nate Dogg's "Shake Dat". Maintaining the flow and funk of the original with peaktime dynamics, it goes way beyond the standard bootleg formula most Eminem bootlegs suffer in this game.

Review: Now on their seventh release, Scour are really coming into their own on the glitchfunk / bootleg game. Here we find Brighton-based turntablist Mr Stabalina laying down four furiously funky twists: "Rock The Party" rides one of the fattest organ lines we've heard in this field all year, "Freak The Funk" samples about 50 of your favourite records over a steady midrange Featurecast-flavoured bass lick while "We Can Do It Again" takes us deeper into bluesy territories with a big piano riff and some really nerdy/brilliant cut & paste narration. Finally "Don't Stop" concludes where we started: juicy fruit organs and a latent sense of funk that's so tangible you can taste it. Ridiculous.

Review: Dirty Dubster head to the Czech Republic's darkest, dirtiest dancehalls as they invite Supa John to the fold for his debut release. "Love Dem Bad" is brutal and bashy. Gravelly vocals a go-go; it's an instant grinder. "This Is Sensi Jam" is much more chilled as we relax into a soft sexy skank. "Gimmie Di Weed" takes a well-known Nextmen lick and flips it into a herb homage while "High Rope" completes the set with a shimmering skank and full focus on heartfelt R&B-esque vocals from Janelle Monae. An impressively accomplished debut.

Review: Dirty Dubster's popular Ragga Party Jams series continues, with another quartet of dubwise mash-ups and reggae/hip-hop futures. Larry SKG kicks things off with "Hypocrites", an expertly crafted fusion of a classic soulful reggae riddim and well-chosen hip-hop samples. DJ Maars' "Just Like Music" blends a familiar rap vocal and sunshine reggae jam with vocal cuts from a classic Marvin Gaye slow jam, while DJ Rebel's "Here Comes The Mashupper" layers a skanking riddim with all manner of familiar vocal samples. Best of all, though, is "I Shot Big L", in which Bob Marley takes a trip into scratchy reggae hip-hop territory. It shouldn't work, but it's sympathetically produced and sounds like a sunshine anthem in the making.

The albums do the same and here we get 24 more sizzling cuts of this new sound.

Review: Breakerz Banquet switch the feast to a BBQ flex with a quartet of laid back summer vibes. Fresh from fronting the label launch, El Bomba takes the lead with "Party Your Ass Off". A refreshingly honest ode to smoking, drinking and fun times, it's an instant smiler. Knuckle Fingerz plays the spot-the-sample game with a whole range of well-known lyrical hooks and a Tribe Called Quest level groove. Cris Crucial plays a similar rap homage with added Dee-lite and Maars. Finally the whole team collide for the 'banger' of the bunch... Muscular drums, a clinically obese groove and party chants a-go-go, if you're not popping within 30 seconds, your volume function is faulty. Yummy.

Cris Crucial's Flawless EP thankfully fails to make a mess. Instead he delivers and unapologetically retro riot of late-80s, early-90s hip house jams that are all about the party. Highlights include the big beat scratch-a-thon "Anything Funky", the laid-back gangster funk of "Big Crucial Thing" and the 60s funk-sampling instrumental "Trouble Bucket".

Review: Dealing strictly in extended collections, Funk Fusion continues its extensive work into 2015 with a 22-track compendium of killer edits, bootlegs and reversions. With an emphasis on fine-tuned, low-swung party jams; highlights include the subtle acid treatment of En Vogue ("Get It"), silky, synth-slapping disco boogie ("Mistery Island"), badass blue grass ("Bluesy Bounce"), Chic-style Public Enemy subversion ("Funky Enemy Number One") and smoke-stacked skank science ("Method Man"). Fusion by name, funky by nature: no party should be without this collection.

Highlights include the tough rolling swagger of Patti Drew's version of Otis Redding's "Hard To Handle", the breaky, electro-swing of "Shake It", the intense clap-along of "Alright Bossa" and the smile inducing Freddie Mercury goes breaky hip-house joys of "Another One Dusty Bossa".

Waggles finishes the set with the cheekiest addition that sees the Beastie Boys on a lounge lizard samba flex. Party insanity.

"Rocksteady Up" re-fixes yet another early 2000's hip hop gem "Ante-Up", and "Champion Steez" goes all breakbeat/ska mode, introducing some rather rapacious Jamaican lyrics over that booty-shaking groove.

Complete with a stripped back dub version, "Rock Me" works so well you could be convinced it's a totally original production. Rocking.

Review: UK purveyours of funky breaks, Bombstrikes Records, may have a controversial name but there's everything to love about their sound. The fun loving and dancefloor bothering label run by Mooqee & Beatvandals was founded in 2004 and they claim that if you have been to a club since then you will most likely have heard their releases. Well then! Starting off with the low slug funk of A Skillz's "Mooger Fooger (dub mix)", Mooqee & Beatvandals themselves appear with "Back Up" and the legendary Cut La Roc is still at it; "Sunday Morning People" (Herbgrinder remix)" proves that he's still got his finger on the pulse. Other highlights include Pimpsoul's ever soulful "Is This Love (feat Pat Fulgoni - Pimpsoul funk remix)" the street attitude of A Skillz & Beatvandals "Simply Playing (feat Real Elements)" and the legendary Martin Solveig (remixed by the equally legendary Mousse T) who appears with the James Brown sampling "I'm A Good Man".

Review: This is a first for all parties: JFB's first official mix, Ghetto Funk's first artist-fronted compilation and Disco Cakes' first ever long playing release. Needless to say each party has really stepped up; JFB has curated a mammoth 37-track adventure exploring every possible corner of Ghetto Funk's sprawling sonic scenery, ranging from wholesome, down-home country funk (Grinny Granddad "Good Girl"), slick ragga-swing (Stickybuds "Clean Air") bump-shuffling electro ghetto (Featurecast "Around The Block") and raw, teeth-clenching bass filth (Skullee - "Badboii"). Leaving no stone unturned, this documents the Ghetto Funk movement with immersive mischief, AND it comes with a killer DJ mix.
