Review: It was 4 years ago when Scour Records happened upon the phenomenon in waiting three-piece Captain Flatcap, playing to two men and a dog in some best-forgotten dive. Now its 2016 and it's different story indeed, the world is beginning to be seduced by the madcap fusion of styles that Chris, Tom and Matt uniquely provide. Now here is their eponymous album to take things to the next level. There are 10 tracks to enjoy; our favourites include the melodic dubstep-meets-ye-olde-flute music of "Awakening", the pulsating medieval trance of "Sergei's Journey" and the DnB mayhem of closer "Are You Me?".

Review: Hailing from Germany, The Bahama Soul Club are a sensational live act featuring a full 7-piece orchestra. Here on their 4th Long Player, Havana '58, they pay homage to the 'tropical playground' that was Cuba in the 50s - a 'pleasure dome of sensual overload and rum-fuelled abandon' featuring wild showgirls, high stakes gambling and revellers including Marlon Brando, Ernest Hemingway, Frank Sinatra and J.F.K. Over the course of 13 exotic tracks they take the listener on a free spirited ride through rumba, Latin Jazz, Soul, Bossa and Boogaloo (with a little sprinkling of dark and sensual Tiki and Exotica for good measure)

Review: With praise for his collaborative album alongside Yussef Dayes (the fantastic Black Focus) still ringing in his ears, Kamaal Williams dons the familiar Henry Wu guise and embarks on another joint enterprise. This time round, his co-pilot is label-hopping collaborator Tito Wun. As you might expect, 27 Karat Years is a largely deep, jazzy and smoky affair, with the duo exploring a range of rhythms and grooves. There's the soft touch, ultra-deep house of "Don Muller", the hazy ambient boogie of "Andre The Giant Vs Bob Sapp", and the J Dilla tribute vibes of "Cheese N Kraut". Throw in a load of tasty interludes (the space ambience of "Peruvian Gold Theme" being a highlight), and you've got another tasty release from Mr Wu and Mr Wun.

Review: When it came to sourcing cool beats and breaks for their sets, classic DJs in the 70s and 80s would look everywhere and in many, many genres to find the good stuff. Here we get another selection of the weird and wonderful tunes that formed the backbone of many a vintage DJs sets Highlights of these 25 tunes include the sizzles drum patterns of wah-wah shuffle "Maranatha" by El Extrnsion, Van McCoy's strings 'n' hysterical boogie jam "That's The Joint" and the raw, swingin' 60s rock of "8:15" by The Guess Who.

Review: Italian duo Nu Guinea has previously proved adept at creating humid, sultry deep house and tropical-infused electronics. Here, they focus a little more on the latter with a concept album based around the distinctive Afrobeat rhythms of legendary drummer Tony Allen. With his blessing, and that of the Comet label on which he's been releasing since the 1980s, the Early Sounds Recordings pair has cut-up and re-constructed Allen's drums, combining them with their own steamy electronics, vintage synthesizer lines and classic drum machines. It's an intoxicating and hugely entertaining blend that sits somewhere between their previous outings, Danny Wolfers' material under the Nacho Patrol guise, and the dreamy late '80s/early '90s work of forgotten Italian producer Mr Marvin.

Review: It's number 46 in the Katakana Edits series, and we got The Worldstylers alongside DJ Claire to lay down some hybrid breakbeats for ya! "Rub A Duby Stylee" is just pure fun, a tune that manages to blend dancehall together with disco and nu-skool breaks, but "Be Bam Pop" isn't exactly far behind on the freak-o-meter thanks to its jazzy nuances and merry-go-round melodies. "Space Frequency" is the final slice of oddball beats, a beat-heavy, mid-tempo breakbeat scorcher that would certainly get some attention from the likes of peeps like The Scratch Perverts.

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: Barely Breaking Even never lets us down. Once again they've dug deep, uncovered a long lost gem and are now giving it a well deserved dusting off. Sun Palace were a project that started as a hobby for musicians Mike Collins and Keith O'Connell (guitar/Roland CR78 drum machine), who in 1981 made Rude Movements, a record that became a rare early dance classic. Now remastered (and also featuring a collection of LP demos, "Raw Movements"), we can now all get to hear the record that blew away the likes of David Mancuso (RIP), Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles. Lucky lucky us!

Review: Consider Strictly Breaks and Notorious B.I.G. partners in crime: the former being the chief compiler of original tunes sampled by classic hip-hop artists and the latter being the late hip-hop hero known for his impeccable taste in sampling. Here we get a whopping 36-track collection of vintage joints later to be employed on many Biggie classics. Highlights include Fred Wesley's tight, groover, "Up 4 The Downstroke", Grover Washington Jr's twang-bass attack "Hydra" and Herb Alpert's legendary jazz disco slinker, "Rise".

Review: Mark Ronson can keep his Uptown Funk pastiche, because DJ Inko is here with some of the original stuff. "Big Brawl" features rolling bass and tight Prince-like guitar licks, "Alley Cat" fuses disco house with vintage clavinet driven boogie, "Buzzer" boasts bass of the elastic variety and wah-wah guitar overload for some flares-flappin' action and finally "Pusherman" adds some electronic funk to mix for real dancefloor demolition. Mark who, again?

Review: This is a whole double album jam packed with 23 original B-Boy breaks, revealing where most of your favourite records found their drum samples (probably). Selections are chiefly from the 70s soul and funk side of things and include a remarkable cover of "Money" (as made famous by The Beatles) by Bloodstone. Elsewhere we have the spaghetti western funk of "A Few Dollars More" by The Hollywood Soundmaker, the hi-NRG disco of Carol Douglas' "Lovesick", a different take on "Apache" by The Jim Ently Sound and the jazzy drums spectacular that is "Countin' Them White Lines' by Buddy Rich.

Review: Where on Strictly Breaks' other compilations they source tunes that vintage DJs used as staples in there sets, the Dusty Finger series concentrates purely on the tunes that featured the dopest drum breaks like, ever. Here on the 32nd (!) instalment we get another 25 cuts to joyfully wade through. Highlights of this collection include the trippy and epic psychedelic opener "That Was Just His Thing" by The IN Keepers, the quirky, snake-like 70s grind "Trombones" by Herb Pilhofer and the squelchy retro grooves of "The Bulldozer" by Steve Gray.

Review: Taken from the nocturnal stashes of Zero 7 main men Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker, the 17 tracks that go into this latest instalment of the Late Night Tales series provides a fascinating mix of hip-hop, soul, dub and acoustica. Fans of Zero 7's distinctive laidback hip-hop style will certainly appreciate beats from soulmates such as Yesterday's New Quintet or The Cinematic Orchestra (as on the classic "Channel 1 Suite"), while soul hunters will go nuts for the incredible '70s jazz-funk snap of Sylvia Striplin's "You Can't Take Me Away". With other names like Souls of Mischief, Don Blackman, Slum Village and The Stylistics included, this is a perfectly crafted late night journey.

Review: The Timewarp label are one of this outfits who care more for diversity than they do about specialising in one particular genre. Through artists like Afternoons In Stereo or Afroqben, they've established their place as a label who can offer something way beyond the dance floor format, and into the varied and imperceptible genre we refer to as 'nu-jazz'. Mister T & Lucy Lune Gillespie are pretty much first-timers to the scene, but their debut EP, Retro Respect, suggests these two have been producing some serious music for a while. These six tracks are both a pleasure to the ear, and offer something different with each new verse; "Mental Playthings", for instance, is stuck between jazz-dance and house, while "Retro Respect" itself is a funky, swingy little number the recalls the 50s jazz smoke, and "Blame It On Me" steps away with some tasty little breakbeats. Lovely.

Review: A lot has changed in the world of music since Freshly Squeezed dropped the first installment of their eponymous label compilation back in 2013. For one, the term electro-swing has become a household name with even the UK Eurovision entry adopting this musical style. Still, this label is where you get the real stuff and here we are treated to another 15 examples. Highlights include the attitude-heavy, dubstep-flecked "Swing Ya Beard" by JFB & Beardyman, Jem Stone's big beat bouncer "Be Bop 2 Hip Hop" and the tough house slammer "Lick The Spoon" by Foxy Cheex & Jem Stone.

Review: It's over to Groningen. Netherlands based producer Duke Hugh for the latest outing on Bradley Zero's always impressive Rhythm Section International; what a way to present a debut LP! He follows up some impressive releases by the likes of Earth Trax and Hidden Spheres, so he sure does have his work cut out for him. Be assured he does indeed deliver, starting out with the latin infused charm of "Butterflies" or the smooth lo-slung soul boogie business of "Church In The Wild". There's a wide variety of moods and grooves on here, such as the rather Theo Parrish sounding deep house of "Home" or the sultry, broken, nu-jazz excursion "Your Number" reminiscent of legends like Atjazz or Phil Asher.

Review: Written and recorded in Story's own Los Angeles studio in downtown Los Angeles with his pal and producer Carlos NiNo Wondem was the debut Soundway Records release for multi-talented jazz-soul artist, Dexter Story. Progressing Story's sound from soul, funk, jazz and folk, the album saw him incorporate sounds East African-influenced music (think Eritrea, Sudan, Somalia, and Kenya). Here the album gets remixed and particular standouts include the spooky laser dub of "Veggie Wandem Combo" (Raf G Afrikan Space Program remix), the moody percussion of "Lalibela (alternative dub)" and the balmy nu-soul grooves of "Mowa" (Al Dobson Jr mix).

Review: With the Christmas gorging season fast approaching, WotNot Music thinks it's an appropriate time to crack open a second selection box of Dancefloor Sweets. EMV128 kicks things off with the sugary soulfulness of "Warm 'n' Easy", a deliciously rich and tasty fusion of broken beat, future jazz and deep house. Galactic Ganesh impresses with the soft-centred, but hard-boiled electrofunk/house fusion of "Tell Me", before Danvers invites us to unwrap the gooey melodies and popping drum machine hits of "Hoxton 203". The last sweet in the tin comes from Body-san, whose dub-wise fusion of heavy bass, undulating organs and cheery positivity will leave you hungry for more.

Review: DJ/producer duo Troo Luv and Charlie Loud aka Heartbreak Sound have a great knack of re energising hip-hop acapellas and dropping some of the finest mash-up material out there at the moment. This latest release on GAMM is an essential purchase which comes in four pieces - with D'Angelo's "Brown Sugar" given a slow, nu-Philly groove, Jeru Tha Damaja's late-period hit "El Presidente" treated to a thematically-correct Cuban remake, Mos Def's "Ms Fat Booty" redone with a new, DJ Spinna-esque set of beats, and Common's classic "The Light" given a gritty make-over.

Review: Sometimes certain compilations need a bit of breathing space between their instalments. This is very much the case with Strictly Breaks' rare soul and funk series, which only sees a new volume appear every now and then. This fourth foray into the far reaches of funk uncovers a host of new gems including Aron Collins' raunchy "You Hit The Spot", the gritty and fierce Blaxploitation funk of "Black Morning" by Ellerine Harding and the drum sample heaven of Silver, Platinum, Gold's chrome-plated disco classic "Comin Up".

Review: This year, Theo Parrish seems to be doing his best to breathe new life into the careers of broken beat-era producers and musicians. Having previously released an excellent EP from Dego and Kaidi Tatham on Sound Signature, his latest missive comes from one-time conscious hip-hop producer Ge ology and one-time go-to jazz keys-man Mark De Clive-Lowe. The latter's brilliant synthesizer and piano work is arguably the highlight of both tracks here. On the spacey, P-funk influenced space-house swing of "Moon Circuitry" he does his best impression of Herbie Hancock, while "Escape On The Lodge Freeway" boasts intricate jazz solos atop a slightly tougher, chunkier deep house groove. Both tracks are, of course, impeccable.

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: Sicily's Fab Samperi returns, following up 2010's Power Bossa LP with "The Big Swing (feat Lil Hardin Armstrong)". First up is a friendly radio edit of this infectious electro swing number that will be an absolute hit on the dancefloor. The club edit up next though is definitely more optimised for the club and we'd certainly recommend this one for the DJs. Finally "The Gangster Blues" featuring the additional talents of Geo Johnson and Chantal gets more of a hip-hop/funky breaks flavour happening which will rock any credible block party in true style!
