from $1.49
Review: It's time to raise a glass of something cold, fizzy and boozy to the long-running G.A.M.M imprint, which celebrates a century of releases with a trio of new disco-era Michael Jackson reworks from regular contributors Moplen and The Reflex. As usual, The Reflex hits the spot, playing around with the original parts to deliver a punchy, floor-friendly extension of Off The Wall cut "Burn This Disco Out" that sounds like some mythical, long lost Tom Moulton remix. Moplen weighs in with two versions of Jacksons' banger "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)"; a DJ-friendly effort that begins with easily mixable grooves, and a superior, mostly instrumental 'Remix' that builds up masterfully via a sumptuous, orchestral intro.

Review: As Eli Escobar let's it be known in "The Formula" that he's 'got something for you' as the sweet chorale chimes. There's a subtle Osunlade vibe to this album, the American's first, and Rhodes be flaying on "Visions" as they vamp to a climax like a Bootsy Collins solo. It's all stripped back business of "NY So Hi" - get down to this! And for some quality, sustained loops check out "Thank You Les". "Up All Night" is a dubbed-out, cool-as, disco-tinged burner and there's a whole load to discover here in a debut album rich with the type of soul you can only get from the streets of the big apple.

Review: The scalpel wielding edit doctor from down under, Dr Packer, returns to practice some more reworking of summer-ready jams on the Smooth Operator EP. There are five new surgeries this time; the synth heavy "Shared Nights", a slow 'n' low Balearic rework "Heaven In The Ghetto", and the elastic band funk of "Ya Don't Stop". Fingerman pops up too to remix with a precision remake op "Block Party Disco Dub".

Review: Hampshire-based Groove Motion - AKA DJ/production duo Wayne Altham and Jack Henwood - describe their style as "bangin' soulful music". Certainly, there's plenty of soul to be found throughout this debut release for Midnight Riot. Throughout, they impeccably blur the boundaries between re-edits, remixes and original productions, delivering new takes on classic tracks with plenty of cool musical flourishes. Check, for example, the deliciously evocative piano solos on their breezy house version of The Jones Girls' "Nights Over Egypt" (here renamed "To The Music"), or the sparkling guitars and tactile chords of Sade re-cut "Nothing Can". There's also a cheery, sun-flecked goodness to "So Good To Me", their house-friendly version of Donald Byrd's Paradise Garage classic "Love Has Come Around".

Faux Metier EP by Yse Saint Laur'ant on Editorial Cue Track
The Optimistic Voyeur - (8:30) 112 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.07
Review: Following outings on Popular People's Front and Whiskey Disco, Rhythm Plate man Ant Plate brings his YSE Saint Laur'ant alias to Editorial for the first time. As you might expect from a man of his experience, the quality threshold is high, and the source material obscure. He opens with the low-slung, Japanese-influenced, Tom Tom Club style disco-funk of "Bow Legged Robot", before taking things up a notch with the classic disco groove, tight horns and swirling strings of "Keep In Step". There's more classic strings and eyes-closed builds to be found on the superb "When Are You Gonna Land", which benefits greatly from a killer percussive break midway through. Finally, he serves up a delicious chunk of summery jazz-funk/disco fusion on the decidedly breezy, Brazilian sounding closer "The Optimistic Voyeur".

Review: Masterworks music know how to make an entrance, and here they introduce a new series, "Bag Of Tricks", with a star-studded cast. There are ten high-end sizzlers served up from a who's who of the nu-disco scene. Highlights include the sublime slicked-out Chic-style electro-disco of Raygo ("Looks Like Love"), the shiny 80s synth-soul seducer "Too Much For Me To Take" by Dr Packer and the shoulder-padded power-stomp of 80s Child's "Bangkok Knights".

from $1.49
Review: Daniel Leseman and Hans 'Junktion' Peeman first joined forces under the Fouk moniker late last year, delivering an impressive debut EP, First Things First, that skillfully combined the former's jazz-tinged rhythms with the latter's smooth deep house nous. There are plenty more reasons to be cheerful on this debut for Detroit Swindle's Heist Recordings imprint, not least the driving bass, jaunty jazz samples and warm chords of "Kill Frenzy". There's even more soul present on the loose house beats, glassy-eyed vocal samples and rich textures of "Leftys Bar", while "Ken Sent Me Release" is as woozy, wavy and dreamy as you'd expect. Soothing stuff, all told.

from $1.49
Review: Some re-edit guys go for pop, some do disco and others opt for novelty jams. Not French funkateer DJ Vas, however, nope, no-way, not ever. He deals exclusively in quality, sumptuous disco. Here he delivers four more cuts, you know, the ones that sound like silly o'clock joy at the Paradise Garage - the loose, Fender Rhodes back beat shuffle of "Go Get The Money", the sparkly tingles of spacey funker "Double Journee", the slappy raunch-bass of "Hold On Me" and the New York in the bad old days electro-funk joint "Gigolo". The real deal.

Review: 2015 is fast turning into Henry Wu's year. Having already delivered killer release of baked deep house/instrumental hip-hop fusion for Ho-Tep and Odd Socks, he now pops up on Rhythm Section International with another brilliant EP. While as deep and blazed as previous excursions, there's a sun-bright freshness to the pleasingly varied selections on offer. Contrast, for example, the deep space, boogie-house slickness of "Yellow Brick", the bruk revivalism of "Neezy (Wok)" - think I.G Culture after a few too many bongs) - and the brilliant deep house/jazz-funk fusion of "Dubplate Special". Arguably best of all, though, is the Latin jazz-goes-deep house warmth of "Croydon Depot". Everyone will have a different personal favourite, though; it's that kind of EP.

O Mestre - (7:08) 60 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Aroop delivers the third instalment of his "Brazil Breakdown" series with three of his floor-fired reworks to date. "Brilhantina" is a percussion-heavy slice of four-to-the-floor soul with synths straight out of the Detroit playbook. "Quem Vai Querer" ups the ante with a juicy bottom end (think mid 00's Yam Who), feel-good chants and a conga roll so hypnotic you'll be shaking your hips for hours. Finally we hit "O Mestre"; rich in warm reverbed synths and coated with a pristine-polished 80s soul vocal, this will work well on both sides of the night. Honey coated warm up or an emotional finale.

Midnight Riot Vol 9 by Various on Midnight Riot Cue Track
Various - "Midnight Riot Vol 9" (Rayko continuous DJ mix) - (1:06:09) 110 BPM
from $1.49
Review: There's a reason that Midnight Riot's eponymous compilations frequently charge to the top of the Juno Download charts. Put simply, they never disappoint. This ninth installment sticks to the now tried-and-tested formula - house-friendly re-edits and originals from across the disco, boogie, soul and funk spectrum - but predictably hits the spot throughout. As usual, there's a bonus mix - this time put together by globe-trotting scalpel jockey Rayko - and tracks come from both label regulars ('80s Child, Ziggy Phunk, Chewy Funk) and an impressive array of new or unheralded talents. It's in the latter category that you'll find some of the most impressive fare - see Phil Jaimes deliciously Balearic "Nowhere To Hide" and Cosmocomics' kaleidoscopic synth-funk jam "Mary Jane" - though the standard remains pleasingly high throughout.

Review: Italian upstart Kiu D serves up a three course banquet of high cholesterol edits. For starters we're presented with a heart-attack inducing deep fried platter of greasy synths as Rocker's Revenge's "Walking On Sunshine" gets the full fat treatment. For mains we're served "Disco Brains"; the audio equivalent of a 20oz steak, it has the juiciest, rarest boogie bassline this side of Manhattan. For dessert we're treated to the sweetest of treats as the smooth-yet-unrelenting "Calm Before The Storm" ebbs and flows softly thanks to lavish piano strokes and a peppering of syrupy jazz elements. What a feast. What a debut release.

Review: What more can we possibly say about nu-disco producer Valique and his two-year bootleg/edit/mash-up blitzkreig that we haven't already said? Listening back over these 31 offerings it becomes apparent that this is simply the soundtrack to one seriously mighty party. There are simply just so many dancing-on-tables moments here (we'll let him away with some of the shockers) including the grooved up DM cover "Personal Jesus" by Johnny Cash, the surreal, intoxicating deep disco take on Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" and the dreamy paradise melodies of "Still You". Here's to the next couple of years!

from $1.49

Review: 15 months on from the release of their superb Body of One full length, Faze Action brothers Robin and Simon Lee have decided to get the album remixed. They start the ball rolling by delivering an '89 style Balearic house dub of "Magic Touch" - all "Good Life" riffs, chopped-up, cowbell-laden percussion and expansive piano solos - before Dicky Trisco weighs in with a more synthesizer-heavy, boogie-inspired re-dub of the same track. Phil Mison reinvents "Echoes of Your Mind" as a drifting Balearic chugger, complete with his own additional guitar, bass and keys, before Emotional emperor Stuart "Chuggy" Leath does his best Dunkelziffer impression via a woozy, fluid and wide-eyed take on "Floating World".

Review: Brooklyn label Razor-N-Tape get in on the Record Store Day action with this special edition of Beatin Tha Breaks from Nashville-based Magic In Threes. It's the remixes that come first, with Dutch artist Fouk going into similar house territory to Kenny Dope with plenty of live instrumental touches blessing the bristling percussion. It's a totally different vibe on the Freddie Joachem remix, with the Californian opting for some midtempo funk breaks that stay closer to the sound of Magic In Threes' original version. This closes out the RSD release on the B-side and is an easy-breezy affair dripping with soulful guitars and harmonies.

Review: Veteran UK house act Crazy P (aka Danielle Moore, Jim Baron and Chris 'Toddy' Todd) are back with a defiant new long player courtesy of the Walk Dance Talk Sing label. It's been a few years since we've had a album from the group, and this 11-track-strong effort doesn't disappoint. Highlights include the sumptuous opener, the sleepy disco of "Like A Fool", the slinky and soulful synth odyssey "Echo" and the beguilingly honeyed female vocal chorus of the title track. Walk Dance Talk Sing fits the bill for this Saturday's night party or Sunday morning's chillout soundtrack.

Review: Don't be fooled by the plethora of comedic, pun-tastic artist names scattered throughout the track list for this sixteenth volume of Vehicle's Boogie Box Edits series. Look harder, and you'll note the distinctive scalpel alias of label boss Valique (simply "V") throughout. His edits - informed by his past in funk breaks as well as disco, boogie and shameless party-starting fun - rarely disappoint, and there's much to enjoy here. Highlights include a toughened-up, straightened out version of the Whispers' "It's A Love Thing" (complete with house pianos), a filter-heavy disco-house tweak of the Johnson Brothers' "Stomp", and a deliciously breezy rework of an old Billy Ocean fave that's worth the admission price on its' own.

Review: Auckland's Grass Green are at it again with another series of smooth and sexy (not to mention cheeky!) slow-mo house re-edits. And fair play; they're executed pretty darn well, even the man himself Greg Wilson named this in some of his top choice of re-edits of 2013. First up "Just Here to Raise Ya" is yes, you guessed it: The Happy Mondays. Shallow Taxi's "Melody of Creed" reworks M People, but it's good, trust us! Finally and the standout here is Monkey Boots at it again but this time with "Lullaby for Spider Man" reworking The Cure's classic of yes you guessed it: "Lullaby".

from $1.49
Review: Having previously proved their credentials in the re-edit arena, Bristol's Boogie Cafe crew has decided to move into the realm of original production. Happily, the material here is pleasingly good, with Chezz's woozy, organic, soul-flecked deep house opener - featuring some superb samples and cowbells aplenty - standing out. Newman's luscious, electric piano-heavy, edit-not-edit "Here With You" also impresses, while Childs & Moore's "Low Key Disco" lives up to its' name. Of the remixes, it's probably Dave Gerrard's rubbery, swinging interpretation of "Here With You" that takes the plaudits, but both reworks of the Chezz tune are also solid.

Review: Editorial Records have been delivering top selling 'slo-mo disco and deep grooves...from around the globe' since 2009. Here they keep the heat on with a new summer-friendly compilation, Golden Grooves. There are 15 choice cuts here, all of which employ a formula of providing a mellow house frame on which to hang some filtered vintage samples. Highlights include the serpentine bassline of Matt Hughes' cocktail-houser "Rodeo Warrior", the Minnie Ripperton-with-a-backbeat haze of "The Spirit" by The Groovers and the spacey hiNRG disco of "Body Heat".

Review: Danny "80s Child" Worrall's Masterworks Music label seems to specialize in delivering tasty reworks of long forgotten '80s soul, boogie and P-funk gems. This latest EP from Brooklyn-based P-Sol is packed to the rafters with this kind of gear. He does an admirable job balancing the needs of the dancefloor with giving the original material due reverence, as you'd expect from someone of his vast experience. There's some slow, chugging, synth-laden disco sweetness ("Every Night"), a dash of breezy '80s dancefloor soul (the filters and bumpin' beats of "Real Love"), and a lesson in the power of dubbed-out horns and eyes-closed synth solos (the admirable "Do Ya"). In other words, plenty of tried-and-tested material for those who dig synth-heavy disco grooves.

Review: Having recently delivered cheery, DJ-friendly edits and reworks for Midnight Riot, Masterworks Music, Argentinian-in-London Fabiolous Barker offers up more glassy-eyed fare on Hotbox Boogie. There's much to admire throughout the five tracks, which - like many edits these days - expertly blend scalpel style rearrangement with compressed, 'straightened out' house grooves. Highlights include the addictive, honky tonk piano solos and disco-funk chunkiness of "Hooked", the thrillingly over-to-the-top "Try Me" (a version of a lesser-known cover of Gino Soccio's "Dancer"), and "You Stepped Into My Mix", a loved-up, house-friendly revision of a disco-era Bee Gees cut later made famous by Melba Moore.

Review: Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint has always reflected his production style, delivering releases that gleefully blur the boundaries between re-edits, remixes and original material, and blend elements of disco, funk, soul, boogie and deep house. This groovy, warm and floor-friendly formula is much in evidence on this first anniversary compilation. Featuring a blend of previously released gear, exclusives and a bonus DJ mix from Fingerman, Hot Digits: Year One is an effortlessly entertaining collection. There's naturally much to admire, from the subtle house beats and P-funk synths of Fingerman's own "Shine Yo Litez" (a rework of an old Grangers tune), and the disco-funk chunkiness of Groove Motion's "Party Now", to the compressed, dubbed-out disco house madness of Chewy Rubs' "Let It Go".

from $1.49
Review: The unstoppable Strut label, usually associated to outstanding reissue anthologies, welcome a surprise package to their catalogue, and boy is this special. Ebo Taylor, one of Ghana's most prolific musicians over the last thirty years, is remixed by none other than Henrik Schwarz, German deep house king and electronic deviant. The track in question is "Ene Nyame Nam A Mensuro", which is transformed by Schwarz into a lively house number complete with Taylor's vocals and plenty of electronic tweaking and processing. The end result is just a straight-up summer jacker. Check!

from $1.49
Review: This is one of those EPs that would be easy to skip past, though that would be a mistake. You see, Stoke On Trent's Rich Lane has genuinely hit the spot with the dub-wise nu-disco chug of "Sweat Out The Suicide". Sat somewhere between the electric bass-propelled disco dub of Fernando, the shimmering Balearic nu-disco of Reverso 68, and the effects unit madness of the Idjut Boys, Lane's original is something of an unheralded gem. The accompanying dub, featuring tighter grooves and greater emphasis on the killer bassline, is arguably even better. If you fancy a more electronic interpretation heavily influenced by space disco, look no further than Lane's own Cotton Bud Remix. Tip!

Review: Despite hailing from Glasgow, The Korvids make the sort of woozy, lilting, yearning Balearica that would have Jose Padilla doing cartwheels. "Beach Coma", their debut single for Nang, is faithfully wide-eyed and huggable, with enough loose instrumental elements (glistening guitars, beach-length chords and multi-tracked vocals) to ensure the right level of refreshed bagginess. Jose Padilla duly emphasizes the acoustic guitars on his sumptuous, enveloping remix, while Audio Luxury provide the obligatory Aeroplane-esque sunshine nu-disco rub. The best rework, though, comes from Ilya Santana, who dips the tempo strips the track back to a sparse but warm, disco-influenced Balearic groove.

Acamar EP by Frankey & Sandrino on Innervisions Germany Cue Track
Lukida - (6:48) 121 BPM
from $1.49
Review: If there's one thing that Innervisions is good at, it's delivering heavily electronic deep house that achieves the perfect balance between grandiose builds, stretched-out periods of groove, and trippy, main room flourishes. That pretty much sums up this latest EP from sometime Drumpoet Community and Moodmusic regulars Frankey and Sandrino. "Acamar" leads the way, transforming from a picturesque deep house shuffler to a big room anthem via extended breakdowns, woozy synthesizers and bold, Latin-influenced electronic melodies. "Lukida" offers a deeper take on the same formula, with rising and falling electronic melodies, sweet chords and an altogether looser, more percussive groove.

Review: Serbian disco stu Tonbe, together with partner in retro crimes Loshni, get together to compile some late night sleaze for Eurotrash, plain and simple. Tonbe turns in some cosmic party jams in the form of "Cosmic Nag", Disco Frisco" and "Rhapsody" taking in some cheeky well known samples in the process. Loshmi on the other hand goes for the more funky disco house vibe on "Long Night" and does a good re-edit of Fatback's "Is This The Future" on "Sad Future".

There's also a radio mix of the same track, all spruced up and vocalised, followed by "She Can't Love You / C'mon Sway" which features Kermit Leveridge on the vocal rap - a bouncy r&b kinda jam for ten club.

Review: Given the sheer amount of material released by KS French's FKR label, their occasional Le Creme Edits compilations - a kind of 'greatest hits of re-edits' - are a godsend for those who haven't got the time to trawl through the imprint's vast back catalogue. There's naturally plenty of much-played fare on this second volume, with French Touch and deep house-influenced disco-house cut-ups from the likes of P Sol, Soultronic, Mastercue and KS French. In terms of highlights, look out for some typically loopy and soulful material from LTJ, a delicious electrofunk scalpel job from Jay-Ru, and a delicious chunk of pitched-down disco-funk bliss from Bab Barbie vs Evil Smarty.

from $1.49
Review: For all the success of his re-edits, original Greg Wilson compositions have been few and far between since the veteran DJ's return to action in the early 2000s. "Summer Came My Way" - designed as a vehicle for Merseyside sisters Katherine and Carmel Reynolds - is his first production of note since 2008's Yolanta Sy collaboration with Ilija Rudman. Reworked into a midtempo chunk of hazy, Balearic disco by L.A's Luxxury, it seems destined to become something of an anthem at sun-baked summer festivals. Luxxury's versions - available in radio-friendly and full-on 10 minute variants - are joined by a brilliantly deep, electronic, downtempo revision from Walter Ego that gives due prominence to Katherine Reynolds' brilliant lead vocals.

Review: Over the last couple of years, Lukas Ru-Kasu has established himself as one of the re-edit scene's leading lights, with a super-smooth, filter-heavy style all of his own. Having previously released EPs on Midnight Riot, Llama Farm and DiscoDat - amongst others - the Western Australia producer arrives on Fingerman's Hot Digits label with five more tried-and-tested dancefloor delights. As usual, there's a mix of the familiar ("Give It To Ya", a tweak of Mary Jane Girls' "All Night Long") and lesser known (the delicious '80s soul flex of "Listen" and "Such a Feeling"). Best of all, though, is "Push is the Groove", a killer p-funk rework in his loopy, house-friendly style.

Review: It looks like All Good Funk Alliance's Super HiFi label has struck gold with this cheery, electrofunk influenced summer jam from Rory Hoy and former Freak Power vocalist Ashley Slater. The original, which benefits greatly from Slater's distinctive vocals, is the kind of cheery, Chic-influenced mid-tempo jam that sounds like it would cause commotion on festival dancefloors. The remix package is hefty, too. All Good Funk Alliance lead the way with a rubbery electrofunk-meets-nu disco slammer, while House of Phonk turn it into a French Touch influenced house banger. Best of all, though, is DJ Bone's rework, with re-casts the original as a choppy slab of slap bass-heavy P-funk revivalism.

Review: Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Voyage Recordings are a new label with a thing for the deeper side of life. That's all good with us, especially when it's as slickly produced as the four tracks found here. With all their key artists making appearance, we get gently washed out to sea on tranquil waves of slo-mo dance starting with CTEPEO 57's jazzy, stoned-house, the velvety smoocher "Rosebud", the lean and serene bliss-house of "Dreams on Kepler" and moody electro-house closer "Gravy". Slick!

Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco imprint continues to be one of the more reliable sources of disco and boogie re-edits. Rather predictably, this latest installment in the series is bristling with high-grade dancefloor material. There's some riotous, party-minded disco-funk from newcomer Scott M, who delivers a killer touch-up of Vernon Burnch's "Get Up", and a thrillingly low-slung chunk of rolling disco-house from VinylAddicted and SMQ. While Pontcharain also provides a tightened-up, filter-heavy tweak of France Joli's Prelude classic "Gonna Get Over You" - heavy on the delay, and with the urgent hustle of house - it's the contribution from Canadian stalwart Eddie C that stands out. A smooth, midtempo cut-up of a lesser-known rollerboogie jam, it rises and falls in all the right places.

from $1.49
Review: Delusions Of Grandeur have been relatively quiet on the release front this year, but they're back with a bang thanks to this latest collaborative effort from Dan Shake and Medlar. The former has gotten a name thanks to being the first non-Detroiter on Moodymann's Mahogani Music, while the latter has been pushing his disco-friendly take on house music largely via the Wolf Music imprint. They got two cuts on here, the first one being a boogie-leaning, hazy summer club jam in the form of "Walk", and the second one a jazzier affair with plenty of soulful vocals and tribal drums called "I On You". Philpot bossman Soulphiction takes care of transforming "Walk" into a pot of filter-licking madness, where the percussion is stretched and freaked out further out into the ether compared to the original. What a package!

The rather hot looking Chicago Service from the Amsterdam label Lumberjacks in Hell which features a merry cast of the city's finest in Gene Hunt, Rahaan, Jamie 3:26, Cratebug, Hugo H and Boogie Nite across seven tracks.

Review: It wouldn't be summer without every house label under the sun releasing an Ibiza-themed compilation. To be fair to Dave Lee's long-running Z Records imprint, they've been delivering White Isle-themed collections every summer for many years. Given that their sound - a blend of funk-fuelled grooves, soulful house, tech-tinged anthems, disco re-edits, boogie revivalism and classic US garage influences - is well suited to sun-drenched alfresco parties, it's little surprise to find that Z Records Presents Ibiza 2015 is rather good. While much of the standout material comes from Lee himself under a variety of guises (check, in particular, the Doug Willis jam "Crystal Lover"), there are also top-notch cuts from Sean McCabe, Opolopo and Fibre Foundation, whose cover of disco/boogie classic "Weekend" is simply superb.

Review: Every now and then we bestow an unofficial 'outstanding achievements in professional moniker' award. Philly Vanilli are pretty much guaranteed to hold on to this title for a long time to come. "The Sould Groove Experience" is their latest missive for Manolo Brigante's Austrian We Mean Disco! imprint and it's packed with reworked '70s soul gems (eight to be precise). Highlights include the shimmering Fender Rhodes slow jam "Soul Food", the rolling phasered guitar freak out "I Need Da Funk" and the campy Eurodisco effervescence of "To Be In Love".

Review: UK veteran edit master Chewy Rubs steps out of his own Chewy outlet and lands on the old-school-friendly Masterworks Music. He's in a disco mood, as per usual, and he's mashing up samples and beats like no tomorrow; we have five juicy pieces of dancefloor gold on here, the more magical moments residing in the funky and riff-driven "Makes You Blind" (Don't Stop edit)", the man's BSP dub of the string-heavy "Burning Up", and his dubbier dub of "Found Love". Party tools.

Review: Having previously appeared on Homebreakin' records, it was probably only a matter of time before Vancouver's Darren Woodhead popped up on Montreal's Editorial Records. Next To You is a typically cheery, floor-friendly EP, blending classic funk, soul disco and boogie samples with subtle house and breaks grooves. As a result, there's plenty to excite, from the jazzy guitar solos and sun-kissed disco grooves of "You Blew It", to the dreamy electrofunk shuffle of "So Devine". Those in search of straight-up dancefloor dynamite should head for opener "Party Hearty", a swinging, good-time funk/nu-disco hybrid featuring rubbery bass and razor-sharp horns aplenty.

Played by: Alkalino, 80's Child
Review: There are plenty of similarities between Iberian scalpel friends Rayko and Alkalino, from their prolific nature, to the tightened up-but-still groovy nature of their ubiquitous re-edit releases. Here, Spaniard Rayko brings his brand of goodtime grooves to Portuguese Alkalino's Audaz imprint, with fittingly solid results. As usual, there's much to admire, from the string-laden, sun-soaked disco-funk bagginess of "You Like To Dance", to the deliciously dubbed-out electrofunk bounce of standout "B-Boyz". There's much to admire elsewhere, of course, with both the sinewy "Rolling" (think classic dancefloor soul business given a nu-disco makeover) and the almost overwhelmingly Balearic Italo rearrangement "Tornado" impressing.

Review: Greg Vickers aka Afternoons In Stereo is a master at the art of electronica and all things downtempo. Over the years, the majority of his output has come out through the Timewarp label, to which he returns to at present with Retrospective, a collection of his own favourite productions from the last ten years. In there, you'll find his inimitable take on IDM and electro, most vividly represented by classics such as "El Puma", "Metrosexual", or the utterly memorable "Tinto Brass", a favourite around these parts.

from $1.49
Review: After impressing with the rather fine 44 Squadron EP on Relish last summer, Eskimo Twins member Timothy Clerkin dons his Heretic guise for an undeniably spacey outing on Nein. With its outer-space noises, undulating electronics, acid flashes and arpeggio rhythms, "Pollux" sits somewhere between spiraling cosmic disco and chugging acid house. While good, it's the accompanying remix package that really impresses. Andrew Weatherall leads the five-man assault, emphasizing the original's spacey elements whilst adding a body-popping electro feel to the beats. Arguably even better is Hardway Brothers' moody, new wave-goes-electro interpretation, while Anton Maiovvi's "Decent Into Hell Mix" is a flurry of panicky electronics, shimmering analogue synthesizers and sweaty drum machine builds.
