Review: If life teaches you anything it's to expect the unexpected. Here the mighty re-edit label Katakana deliver their 42nd instalment of scapel jobs. However, this time, rather than have a specific producer curate an EP, they've shaken up the formula and delivered a compilation of edits. There's a whopping 24 reworks to enjoy too, many thrills and spills, but our favourites include Morlack's explosive drum-lead MJ cover, "Don't Stop", Mister Vagz' corny 60s mash-up "Love Me Venus" and Dim Zach & Deem's baggy rework of the Happy Monday's sublime "Loose Fit".

Review: It would be fair to say that Studio K7 has pulled off something of a coup in getting Kenny Dixon Jr. to agree to compile and mix the latest installment in the long-running DJ Kicks series. It is, somewhat remarkably, the legendary Detroiter's first commercially available mix set. This triple-vinyl edition features a whopping 19 cuts - all in unmixed form - from the 30 track mix. Musically, it's a blazed, jazzy, soulful and groovy as you'd expect, and contains a mixture of downtempo beats, nu-jazz and hazy house cuts from the likes of Flying Lotus, Dopehead, Peter Digital Orchestra, Nightmares On Wax, Soulful Session and Lady Alma.

Review: 'Australia's hardest hitting Hammond Organ Trio', Cookin' On 3 Burners, are on the eve of marking their 20th anniversary. They've been quiet since smash 2014 album Blind Bet, but here they begin the lead up to said milestone with a re-release of 2009 iTunes RnB Chart number one, 'This Girl'. The track was recently reworked into a pumping house hit thanks to Kungs, but here we get the more melancholic original. Boasting a slow, vintage 1960s soul sound and a vocal tour de force from Kylie Auldist, this tear-jerking version is still guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings.

Review: Brazil's favourite purveyor of re-edits that fell off the back of a lorry, Trotter, is back after a long hiatus with another example of the kind of light hearted party fodder that he's best known for. Yes "Let it Rock" features feet shuffling rolling beats with a poolside aura and tropical lilting guitar. E1sabr delivers a more contemporary mix with melodic electronic disco melodies and emotion, Ursula 1000 also provides some dream-like sun kissed electrohouse vibes and finally P-Sol gets nice and deep, with a Balearic-style smoochy wonder that's teased out over the duration of six minutes. Pure summer sounds.

Review: Tribe Vibes is a double album compendium of tracks key Daisy Age troupe A Tribe Called Quest used as sample material for their many, many classics. The release starts with Eugene McDaniel's stoner-funk tune "Jagger The Dagger", used on the Tribe standard "Can I Kick It?" and from here the soul and funk vibes remain plentiful. Highlights include the retro trumpet funk of Billy Brooks' "Forty Days", an appearance from the best Sweater wearer in the game Bill Cosby via his 70s tune "Martin's Funeral" which Q-Tip and co sampled for "We Can Get Down" and Average White Band "Love Your Life" as heard in "Check The Rime". As well as providing some compelling insight into the crate digging skills of a crucial hip hop act, this release will provide ample sample for any budding boom bap producers out there.

Review: Who knew the classic daisy-age hip-hoppers A Tribe Called Quest used so many samples? Well Strictly Breaks certainly do and here they're rolling out their fourth (yes, fourth!) volume of tunes that made their way into the '90s rap act's back catalogue. Saving us the time and the money needed to find these rarities ourselves, we now have a further 25 old skool jams to explore. Highlights include Sly Stone's hippy-funk classic "Running Away", the sublime Ayers/Birdsong grooves of "Turned On To You" by the spectacularly named Eighties Ladies and Albino Gorilla's freaked-out acid soul anthem "Psyhodelic Shack". Groovy!

Review: How much do you know about veteran UK soul singer Omar? For example did you know his surname is Lye-Fook? Perhaps there was a reason why he stuck to just his first name. Now "I Want It To Be" arrives as a teaser from new LP, Love In Beats. If you can imagine exotic, tropical syncopation set to Omar's warm tones, then you're almost there. Elsewhere "Destiny" lays on the bass and cowbells and "Sissy Pa Sissy" is surreal futuristic funk. Omar's brother Scratch Professor also appears to deliver a cut up leftfield rework of the title track.

Santero (Hallex M remix) - (6:10) 60 BPM

Review: Peruvian future jazz experimenters Novalima are on the mission to have their whole Planetario album remixed and reinterpreted by like-minded beat innovators. They have passed their quest with flying colours. "Santero" is the tune in question, and it is first remixed by Los Chicos Altos into a tropical little house banger that calls for an immediate order of caipirinhas or something of that nature; the same tune is mutated into even more tribalistic territories by Hallex M who delivers what is surely the hotter remix of the two and a tune that could be played on pretty much any dance floor. HOT.

Review: US spoken word don Rich Medina is usually seen releasing a downtempo strain of hip-hop that branches out into more soulful territories, but BBE have snapped him up to take control of their latest compilation, this being number one in the new Jump 'n' Funk series. Tropical-flavoured funk would be the best way to give you a snapshot of this glorious collection of music, ranging from rare afrobeat to newer, more contemporary broken beat rhythms, but in reality this is simply a wonderful vibe placed under one roof. Inside, you'll find everything from drumming legend Tony Allen, to Fela Kuti, Tweak, Jungle By Night, and plenty more dance-friendly artists. Warmly recommended, and afro comp of the week from us!

Review: For this release, Greek electro-swing label Carnibal don their best man from Del Monte hat and jet (well, use a propeller plane) over to Havana for some vintage Latino thrills. Here Carnibal regulars Palov and Panama Cardoon team up for the lazy, steel drums and trumpet romp of "Vamos", Moetrik conjures up the Three Amigos on the traditional sounding "El Carino!", it's a cumbia-samba hybrid on Hammond Classics' "Cumbiamba" and Senor Griff rounds things up with the more modern, cumbia/moobahton-style roller "Cerro Rico".

Review: When these two veteran producers (both named Will) formed Mega Jawns, they created magic - seducing their native Philadelphia, before the rest of the world surrendered too. Here their powerful take on soulful house "Blink Of An Eye" is reworked in differing styles. Firstly Finest Wear speed things up and slim things down in a beautifully streamlined deep house (in the original sense of the term) nine-minute journey. Elsewhere the mighty Booker T, contorts 'Joy" into a hip-swivelling jazz-tropical workout before Finest Wear return for a shorter, squelchy funk-house reprise of the former. Quality stuff.

Review: There's no doubt that Berliner's Max Graef and Glenn Astro are some of the biggest success stories to emerge from the deep house sound and creating their own signature style that's often copied of late, but seldom ever matched! Sure, the dusty hip-hop inspired jams are no doubt indebted to Detroit legends such as Theo Parrish or Andres but they've certainly put their own slant on it and created a new sound for the German capital to be synonymous with. Testament to their success is this LP for the legendary Ninja Tune; The Yard Work Simulator. Nearly a dozen tracks of chilled, sampledelic, MPC driven dope jams that are the perfect soundtrack for a misspent youth in Berlin this Summer. In particular check the raggedy junkyard joint that is "Where Fuck Are My Hard Boiled Eggs" or the psychedelic urban soul jam that is the title track.

Review: For the uninitiated, The Gaff is a Canada-based DJ, producer and prodigious maker of "party breaks" - shorthand for re-edits and reworks that should appeal for those DJs for whom loose rhythms are of more interest than a straight 4/4 pulse. This first contribution to the digital-only Katakana Edits series is full of funk and soul-laden jams with heavy but snappy drums. There's a global feel, too, with excellent forays into afro-funk ("High Life") and Latin beats ("Mambo Number 5"). While all four tracks are carefully tuned to the needs of dancefloors, the afro-flecked disco-funk grooves of "Funny Saga" stands out.

Review: Two albums for the price of one... Not only is this a fantastic showcase of Pimpsoul's mixing ability, DJ dynamics and selection skills, but, as individual tracks, Funk N Beats Volume 1 also acts as a great nu-funk collection. Joining the dots between formative genre-setters (Breakestra's "Cramp Your Style" and Skeewiff's "Feelin' Fine") to modern day dancefloor bangers (Rory Lyon's "I Got 5 On It" and Mr No Hands' "Feeling Fine") this touches every corner of the party-loving dancefloors. Nu-funk is riddled with label compilations but very few albums that reach further than in-house output. Big props to both Pimpsoul and Bombstrikes.

Review: Basel-based trio Alma Negra has enjoyed a productive 2014, with their remixes and reworks of little-known Haitian and African jams appearing on Highlife Edits and Sorfrito. Here they deliver their first EP - a superb collection of edits laden with voodoo drums, dense percussion and tribal intent. Opener "Mao Negra" is particularly potent, and features a solid - but subtle - house kick-drum below all manner of loose and energetic African percussion and traditional chants. The more uptempo "Messa" is, if anything, even heavier - check the rubbery bassline and woozy chanting - while "Tribal Echoes" is the sort of darkroom deep house/African rhythms hybrid that you'd expect to hear on Huntleys & Palmers. Spellbinding stuff.

Review: A London based leftfield funker producer, Mr Mamode excels in filling dancefloors with evocative quirky grooves and breathy vocals. Here he drops this seven-track mini-LP for the esteemed Five Easy Pieces and it's a winner. Highlights include the sleazy clavinet-driven grind of "In This Case", the stoned and broken nu-soul of "Like I Do" and the bonkers percussive freakout "JumpWorkShakeMov".

Review: Solidarity marks a welcome return to the studio from Canadian six-piece The Souljazz Orchestra following an extended break for touring. As with previous outings, the 10 tracks bristle with summery intent, mixing heavy bottom end pressure with piercing horns and authentically fuzzy vocals. The production makes it sound authentically 1970s, as if it was recorded in some cheap West African studio. Given the band's love of Afro-funk and Afro-beat - as well as the sort of psychedelic afro-jazz that so enthuses record collectors - it's a wise move. If anything, it makes the album even more desirable; certainly, there's an authenticity to The Souljazz Orchestra that can't be denied.
