Review: Russia's pre-eminent re-edit Tsar, Valique, is a very happy man now that his Vehicle label has reached its 10th anniversary. He's very much the kind of man who celebrates in style and here is no exception - he has collected a jaw-dropping 64 of his best edits from the last decade, all for this album. Some of the very many highlights here include the warm and full disco-house vibes of his Al Green Green rework "Good Or Bad", the kitschy Eurodisco confection "Still You" and the dubbed-out soft-synth orgy of his reinterpretation of Bryan Ferry's "Slave To Love". Here's to another decade of disco joy!

On Fire - (6:20) 117 BPM

Review: The honour of curating the 44th instalment of Katakana's Edits series has fallen on Disco Funk Spinner, a much respected re-edit guy whose work has appeared on the likes of Midnight Riot, Disco Fruit and Sound Exhibitions. Here though he only manages to provide two jams, but it's quality, not quantity, right? First up we get "Night Strangers" which takes loops from Candi Staton's Bee Gees cover (Nights On Broadway) and adds an accelerated disco house tempo and subtle but funky embellishments. On the digital flip is "On Fire", a clever rework of Peggy Lee's indestructible classic, Fever. Hot stuff!

Played by: SEEN ON TV
Review: DJ Butcher's Chopshop greets 2017 with a stonking new EP of big hit reworks by DJ S. The lead track here is "Last Train To The Disco" which takes a 70s ELO masterpiece and just gently beefs it up for modern dancefloors. This approach continues on "The Drug I'm Thinking Of" where Roxy Music's sleazy ode to prowling nightclubs in search of lust has its original bass lines and breaks ever so carefully teased out to great effect. Lastly "More Love" is a cheeky Balearic jam, originally by Tony Pacino that gives Julio Iglesias a run for his money.

from $1.86
Review: Given that he founded the label two years ago this month, it's something of a surprise to find that Heart Breaker is Danny '80s Child' Worrall's first release on Masterworks Music. As usual, the five re-edits on offer mine the producer's vast collection of '80s electro, P-funk and synth-soul for inspiration. Opener "Dancing Real Close 2 U" is a subtly beefed-up rearrangement of a P-funk/'80s soul fusion, while "The Next Step" is a Tiger & Woods style electrofunk-goes-house loop jam. He changes the formula a little on the organic disco cheeriness of "Love Is U", before reaching for the hairspray on the Jam & Lewis-on-steroids vibe of "Closer 2 Your Luv".

He Is The Voice I Hear - (10:29) 118 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.86
Review: There's naturally been plenty of hype surrounding The Black Madonna's "He Is The Voice I Hear", which originally dropped on a single-sided 12" at the tail end of 2016. It's undoubtedly the fast-rising Chicagoan's best record to date, and feels like an unashamed tribute to Patrick Cowley's fine productions for disco icon Sylvester. While there are mournful notes - check the extended, beat-less piano intro -it doesn't take long to turn into a deliciously muscular, Italo-disco style chugger laden with razor-sharp strings, bubbling acid lines, and the kind of fluid piano solos that were once a hall mark of Frankie Knuckles' remixes. In other words, it's a fine contemporary disco record from one of dance music's most notable DJs of recent times.

Cadillac Disco (original mix) - (6:49) 113 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.86
Review: Disko's latest digital-only release is a meeting of musical minds. It features two groovy, musically rich disco-house collaborations co-produced by sometime Large Music contributor Paul Rudder and fast-rising talent Tete de la Course. While "Cadillac Disco" - a tasty fusion of rolling, bass-propelled grooves, wild flute solos, punchy horns and cheeky vocal samples - is rather good, it's opener "Makin' The Magic" that hits home hardest. A smooth but bumpin' dancefloor shuffler with bold organs, jangling acoustic guitars and eyes-closed vocal samples, it sounds like the kind of track that will easily slip into both house or disco sets. Roberto Rodriguez provides the obligatory remix, gently tugging the track further towards disco-tinged deep house territory.

Review: We've come accustomed to Kiu D delivering warm, groovy, floor-friendly music that blurs the boundaries between re-editing, remixing, and original production. He's at it again on this first outing for Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint. The EP's four original tracks utilize big chunks of killer old soul, funk, disco and jazz-funk jams, but combine these elements with chunky house beats and woozy deep house flourishes. This is arguably best exemplified on the tactile, sun-kissed swing of "I'm In Your Life" and surging, solo heavy "Jazz or Funk". The package is completed by two tasty reworks: a bass-heavy disco-house revision of "I'm In Your Life" by Voodoo Whiskey, and Twisted Soul Collective's righteous, party disco remix of "Jazz or Funk".

Review: Sunner Soul is clearly determined to start 2017 in a positive mood. His first EP of the year urges us to have a Good Time, with the producer doing his bit to spread sunshine via a string of impressively warm and summery re-edits. He begins with a blissful ambient tool - perfect for mix intros and such - before expertly reworking a global disco shuffler ("Fuwafuwa Groove"). The swirling peak-time disco of "Good Time" is next, followed by an expertly executed cut-up of Evelyn 'Champagne' King boogie classic "Love Come Down" that offers a subtle nod towards Tiger and Woods. The sweaty disco-funk bump of "Ready To Back" and horn-heavy groover "Rescue Of Time" complete an excellent package.

Review: After an extended summer break, Apersonal Music returns to action via a first EP in five years from Cisco Cisco. It opens with the comforting shuffle of "Jazzy Days", where intricate electric piano lines, woozy chords and soulful vocal samples ride a near horizontal, slow-house groove. It's accompanied by a trademark Ron Basejam remix, which retains the rich, jazzy deep house feel of the original, whilst adding a little more disco swagger. Further disco and boogie influences can be heard on "Jazzy Nights", which is a flickering, synth-heavy deep house treat. Andre Vegas' smooth, sweet and sultry interpretation of that track rounds off a fine E.P.

Review: Lately Leeds' Deelicious has seen his loose and groovy tunes grace the likes of Sound Exhibitions and Disco Fruit. Here he rolls out five sizzling new bangers. The urgent slice of socially conscious funk, "Lonely Town Lonely Street", kicks things off, "Trust Me" incorporates housier filtered loops into the mix and the title track is celebratory slice of disco-pop with some ace bloc-rocking breaks and punk-funk bass work. Elsewhere we enter orbit with the melodramatic sci-fi boogie of "Mechanical Body" and "Change Your Mind" is an amazing example of early underground dance music reconfigured by a 21st century perspective.

from $1.86
Review: Given the success of Red Rack'em's hard-to-beat "Wonky Bassline Disco Banger", we were initially skeptical of this remix package. Happily, all involved have done a good job in offering a fresh slant on one of the club hits of 2016. KiNK steals the show with a version that strips out much of the original's disco flavour, instead combining Rack'em's wonky electronics with trippy new noises and freakishly druggy elements. The result is a fine chunk of heavyweight weirdo-house. Classic chief Luke Solomon joins forces with the mighty Eats Everything and Lord Leopard on the virtual flipside, serving up a skewed version that veers from loose disco-house warmth to brain-melting electronic wonkiness, and back again.

Don't YouKnow, Baby - (5:11) 111 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.86
Review: G.A.M.M's man in Paris, Young Pulse, is a talented chap. His periodic re-edit releases on the long-serving Swedish label have been amongst the most impressive rework-heavy EPs of recent years. Volume 4 is a little less expansive than usual, boasting just two cuts; happily, though, both are superb. "Everybody, Free Your Body" is a soaring, spiraling rearrangement and extension of The Dells largely overlooked 1977 album cut "Get On Down", which sounds like the stuff memorable midnight moments are made of. On the virtual flipside you'll find the similarly soulful and funk-fuelled "Don't YouKnow, Baby", a superb straightening out and subtle beef-up of L.T.D's 1980 jam "Don'tcha Know".

Review: Aussie adventurer Tornado Wallace seems to be getting better with age. Over recent years, he's delivered a string of brilliantly evocative, sun-kissed releases for the likes of ESP Institute, Beats In Space and Second Circle. Lonely Planet is his debut album, and it could well be his strongest release to date. The seven tracks are dreamy, trippy and atmospheric - we'd expect nothing less - and draw on a far wider palette of Balearic influences than we've heard on previous experiences. Coupled with a new-found desire to include more live instrumentation (particularly glistening, Peter Green style guitar passages, drums and exotic flutes), the result is an album that's as evocative, dreamy and humid as anything he's produced to date. In other words, it's a great album and comes highly recommended.

Review: By now, we should all know what to expect from Serbian scalpel maestro Tonbe. His frequent EPs are aimed fairly and squarely at the dancefloor, delivering a mixture of re-edits, reworks and sample-heavy productions that don't try too hard to impress. This latest EP is full of such cheery, tried-and-tested cuts, from the rolling jazz breaks, comfy Rhodes stabs and fluttering soul vocals of "Gambling Face", and punchy disco-house flavours of "Sweet Love", to the rich, organ-flecked soulfulness of "Those Days", and riotous, disco-goes-hip-house opener "Don't Mess With Us". In other words, it's another rock-solid collection of tasty peak-time bangers from one of the edit scene's most reliable producers.

First was a new instalment in the "Supa Funky Edits" series and now we have a rare full solo EP from man himself. Here on the Bad Soul EP French goes for a vintage soul influenced sound, particularly the sassy and brassy James Brown-sampling opener, "Godfather Edit". Elsewhere there's a nod to his fellow countrymen Daft Punk on the Edwin Birdsong-sampling "Cola Freak Baby", the stomping, bass-fuelled shakedown of "Party Noize" and woozy sax-led boogie on the lo-fi "Give It Up".

Review: If you swap the first letters of Judge Funk's name, you get Fudge Junk. We're still trying to work out if that actually means anything at all. However, whilst we all ponder that existential question, lets listen to the music. Yam Who? pack five JF tracks in this single on their Midnight Riot label. Including their own take on "We Want Prince", where the original's crowd-chanting elastic bass hysteria becomes the funkiest disco-funk this side of Minneapolis. Elsewhere "Heads" is thumping mid-80s electro soul, "Rubbanova" is brassy, Loveboat-era boogie and "Deal With This" is deliriously glamorous shimmering disco-house escapism.

Review: By anyone's standards, ESP Institute enjoyed a hugely successful 2016, delivering a string of fine singles and killer albums from Moscoman and Lord of the Isles. This first digital missive of 2017 is equally as impressive, and comes from the previously unheard Nancy Azzuro. Opener "Grace" is undoubtedly impressive; a rolling trip into 21st century dub disco territory blessed with killer percussion work and an addictive electronic bassline. "Illustrations & The Large" is a deliciously woozy and melodious chunk of softly spoken Balearic deep house, while the loopier "Teen Bee" fixes ghostly melodies onto a loose and warm disco-house groove.

Review: Given his credentials and track record, it's unsurprising that original disco and boogie artists are willing to let Joey Negro play around with their biggest hits. His first stab at this kind of multi-track remix, 2014's Remixed With Love, was such a success that he's decided to unleash another swathe of revisions over two vinyl double-packs. This edition features some killer reworks, including a sublime, on-point rearrangement of Gwen McRae's "Keep The Fire Burning" and a rolling, dubbed-out version of Grace Jones' "Pull Up To The Bumper" that rivals Larry Levan's classic remix. The veteran producer also successfully turns Pockets' "Come Go With Me" into a classic soulful house rub, and pushes Thelma Houston's "I'm Here Again" further towards disco anthem territory.

Review: It would be fair to refer to Dino Lenny as a "veteran": the Italian producer has been churning out dancefloor hits since the dawn of the '90s. This release sees him join forces with Cajual and Hot Creations regular Doorly for a loving tribute to the joys of club culture. The action centres on a meandering, largely spoken vocal describing a mesmerizing late night dancing experience in "The Magic Room". On the lead version - a tasty re-edit by Lenny and Seth Troxler - this is accompanied by "Lazy" style pianos, and a chunky, disco-tinged house groove. The low-slung guitars and bass are pushed to the fore on Doorly's energy-packed remix, while Luke Solomon doffs a cap to the jazz-flecked boompty sounds of Chicago on his busy rework.

Review: Fresh from an acclaimed outing on FACES, Giovanni Damico pops up on Marcel Vogel's inspired Lumberjacks In Hell label. The Italian producer is naturally in fine form here, with "Tanzania" - a breezy, house-friendly rework of what sounds like a Tanzanian boogie cut - being one of the most addictive and life-affirming edits we've heard this month. You'll find more wiggling synthesizer lines on the deliciously dreamy and evocative deep house shuffler "I Need Me", while "Are You Somebody" is a successful exercise in subtly beefing up a low-slung disco-funk number. As if that wasn't enough to set the juices flowing, he completes a brilliant E.P with the jazz-fuelled deep house smokiness of "Humans After All".

Review: There's not much info about this latest offering from the Giant Cuts camp, other than that the four tracks are "classic disco modifications". In practice, that means expert cut and paste re-arrangements of the kind of vintage disco material that was once all the rage in New York City. Check, for example, the early Leroy Burgess vocals, rising orchestration and extra-percussive groove of "Nut Butter", the "Open Sesame"-era disco voodoo of "Aladdin's Groove" - here made even more alluring by the addition of some tasty dub delay - and the break-driven disco-funk thrills of "Wooden Doll", which sounds like a rework of a forgotten T-Connection cut. Also superb is the celebratory bounce of "Dance Party", which smartly focuses on a rubbery groove, layered percussion hits and memorable vocal passages.

Review: Since making his debut some years back, Fabiolous Barker's reworks have appeared on many of the nu-disco scene's leading edit imprints, including Midnight Riot, Masterworks Music and Alpaca Edits. This expansive compilation draws together some of the London-based Argentine's finest scalpel moments to date, offering mostly freshly re-mastered versions for extra-loud dancefloor pleasure. There's naturally plenty to enjoy, from the elastic, pitched-down disco-funk of "Sexy Thing" and the soaring disco camp of "Love", to the all-instrumental sleaziness of Sylvester rework "Liquid Gold", and the quirky P-funk throb of "Bottoms Up". He's also included a number of his hip-hop sampling disco mash-ups, all of which are also tried-and-tested dancefloor gold.

Highlights of which include the fizzy thump-funk of 80s Child's "Computerized", Peza's doomy analogue electro mash up "Filmed Message" and the smooth, synthetic boogie of "Much Too Much" by Deelicious.

Review: Greek DJ Alien Disco Sugar supplied us with six calorific musical Mutant Candies just before Christmas. Now it's January and we're watching our disco waistlines, so the follow-up, Vol 2, only boasts three Candies - but boy, do they still taste good! "Super Jock" begins the EP with some soft, beach bar grooves - plenty of percussive breaks and a rolling bass line. Next "Keep 'Em Burning Hot" is a sultry and sparse boogie-down, with a live band propelling some on-fire female vocals. Lastly "Get On Up And Do It Again" is a Paradise Garage-style slice of chunky funk. Sweet!

Review: Next up on Bristol's Futureboogie is Alex Warren aka Kiwi who has had previous releases on the likes of Optimo Music, Blase Boys Club and Sneaky Music in addition to promoting for well known London parties and clubs like Orlando Boom/Kate Boss and The Nest. The versatile producer wastes no time getting stuck in, starting out with the explosive "Orca" which features one of the most amazing arpeggios this side of "I Feel Love". There's more vintage, synth driven disco vibes on "Minke" or "Logmans Break" while the feel good nu-disco vibes of "Pygmy" are reminiscent of modern greats like Jay Shepheard or Milton Jackson.

Review: The latest volume in the Surgery Edits series is something of an epic affair, with scalpel-wielding hero Dr Packer offering up no less than eight intricate procedures. It's naturally a mixed bag, with the Australian offering gently beefed-up and quantized versions of both well-known cuts (a well-loved Marvin Gaye classic gets the treatment on "Give It Up", while "Disco Squares" is a punchy revision of a Rick James produced Teena Marie favourite) and lesser-known floor-fillers (the bubbly '80s soul flex of "Your Love Baby", the heavyweight P-funk strut of "Move That Bottom"). There's not a duffer in sight, with jazz-funk style closer "Smoov Groove" and righteous disco-funk bumper "Party Time" arguably the pick of an impressive bunch.

Review: Sleazy McQueen's Whiskey Disco label seems to be on fire at present, with new EPs of white-hot edits appearing on an almost weekly basis. Predictably, there's more high-grade material on this latest split artist four-tracker. Pontchartain kicks things off with a brilliantly dubbed-out take on Gayle Adams classic "Lifesaver" (previously successfully extended and re-touched by FLX One a few years back), before Osmose delivers organ solos, orgasmic groans and rump shaking beats on "Broadway Kiss". Derek Kaye's "Holdin' On", a deliciously celebratory number full of cheery scat vocals and incessant grooves, and "I Got Your Wang", a cheery, sun-kissed chunk of disco perfection from Rulefinns Kravstor.

Review: For this 49th serving of Disco Fruit, label boss Tonbe has turned to regular contributor Mitiko. Turn Off The Light is a weighty package, with seven sneaky reworks, cut-ups and sample-heavy club tracks to choose from. We're particularly enjoying the groovy, Sade-style dancefloor smoothness of "Let The Spirit Move Me", the jazzy disco bliss of "Turn Off The Light", and the drowsy, mid-tempo deep house shuffle of "I Need You", though there are plenty more highlights elsewhere. Check, for example, the glistening guitar solos of soft-focus disco closer "Lovin You" and the 105 BPM disco-funk party that is "No Attitude".

Review: The kind of names and quality of releases that Brooklyn's Razor N Tape has supported puts them in the disco premier league. Here they enlist Jkriv to provide us with dancing fodder that isn't throwaway stuff. First is his rework of "Bukom Mashie" by Oscar Sulley & The Uhuru Dance Band. The latter, his "King Mashie edit", is a raucous slice of bassy and brassy percussive Afrobeat. Elsewhere an O'Jays classic gets stretched out into eight minutes of slow bump bliss on "The Queen On Her Throne" and resurfaces in a deliciously spare dub called "The Queens Beats". Top notch!

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: The Bahnsteig 23 crew are flying towards the end of the year with a salvo of essential wares from their established crew and new faces alike. Sweden's Albion Venables has been doing the business on labels such as Ambassador's Reception and Macadam Mambo for the past seven years, and his first turn on Bahnsteig doesn't disappoint. In a flurry of eclecticism, the mood veers from the bubbling kosmische tones of "En Trance" through to the schlocky funk of "Schwarzen Mer", mixing live band dynamics with quirky electronics and keeping the groove delightfully authentic. The diversity maintains on the flip as "City People" taps up a moody New York flavour and "Die Marinette Der Zeit" strikes a more classic funk note.

Highlights include the slinky clap-along, "Somebody Else", the noodle-bass moog boogie of "Xpand Your Mind" and the breaks-laden cocktail grind of "Tropical Jump". Good to hear disco has checked outta hospital and back on the dancefloor in full health.

Review: Despite hailing from modern day Norway, Lux Experience's heart remains firmly in the USA during the heady days of the 1970s. Nothing wrong with that as nothing really tops the thrill of the original disco explosion during that wild decade. Here he unearths four more long gems from that time and retweaks them for contemporary dancefloors. "Street Disco" is and accelerated proto-hiHRG opener, "Your Luv" begins as classic French Touch-style diva loops before expanding into more stripped backed boogie and "Freak Mouse" is a bass driven chant-along. Lastly "Prance With Me" wraps things up with some seriously elastic party vibes.

Review: Spanish producer Rayko has delivered some impressive dancefloor magic courtesy of his Rare Wiri label. Ranging from re-edits to deep nu-disco and everything in between, the imprints sound is all encompassing. That philosophy is fully explored here on Retro Future Disco, bringing all kinds of disco approaches to the table. Highlights include the schmokin' 70s jazz-funk of "Hot Head Disco" by Psychemagik, the legendary Il Flagranti's rare re-edit of new wave classic "Walking In The Rain" by Flash & The Pan and the dreamy, star-crossed synth-pop of "In Your Eyes" by Yam Who? Something for everyone here.

Review: Bristol's X-Ray Ted is about the light and fun party jams, no cool digger's obscurities welcome here. Here he serves four guaranteed floor fillers starting with "Mild Mild West", a loose-limbed disco rendition of the Good The Bad and The Ugly theme, next "Too Good" sees Aretha Franklin get a house-shaped whoosh under her backside, "EveryMoney" meanwhile sees some vintage soul fused with classic Kelis and ODB and finally "Hold Tight" sees the show close with some sizzling neon-flecked arpeggiated disco..

Review: Just like Freddie Mercury once sang, Mr Given Raw wants to break free. Normally always found sharing a release with his old pal KS French, this time MGR can be found snuggling up to Chuggin Edits for the "Groovers Only EP". It's evens Stevens too, with both producers providing two tracks each. Mr Raw is up first, delivering the thumping, chunky funk of "Groove Traveller" and the slow, bassy disco anthem "Love Soul". CE follows all that with the breezy and brassy boogie of "Stop Cruisin" and the glam rock disco stomp of "Boogie Action".

Review: Razor 'N' Tape has been slowly expanding its' outlook in recent years, focusing on original productions just as much as re-edits. Here, they've pulled off something of a coup by snapping up two fresh cuts from Dutch heavyweights Kraak & Smaak. There's the clipped Chic guitars, jaunty analogue bass, undulating Syclops lead lines and gravelly soul vocals of "Way Back Home", and the filter-heavy disco-house throb of "Seb's Party". The package also includes two tasty re-rubs apiece from Ben Sun and Tiger & Woods. Sun offers up a smooth, nu-disco/deep house fusion, followed by a chunkier, classic house sounding affair, while Tiger & Woods offer two superb variants on the same throbbing, electrofunk-meets-Balearic piano house template.

Review: Back In The Day marks the second appearance from Local Talk regulars Dirtytwo on J Kriv and Aaron Dae's Razor 'N' Tape imprint. Like their last outing, Back In The Day sees them offering up an impressive blend of bumpin' house and filter-heavy re-edits with a heavy emphasis on party starting. While the murky, basement-bothering title track, and Daniel Leeseman's baggier, disco-house rework, are impressive, it's the EP's other two tracks that are really floating our boat. Check, in particular, the string-laden, bass-heavy sleaze of "Last Night", which boasts a spine-tingling breakdown and some decidedly sweaty female vocals. That said, the slower "Estrelar" - a chopped-up, looped, filter-fiddling rework of the Marcos Valle track of the same name - is also rather fine.

Review: Rather surprisingly, this is File Under Disco's first release of 2016. Happily, it's a bit of a doozy, with Brooklyn's J Kriv gathering together The Disco Machine band for the first time since 2013's much-played "Make It Hot". Escort's Adeline Michele guests, adding strong, catchy and attractive vocals to an authentic NYC disco bomb built around a Chic style groove, fluid synths, crunchy Clavinet lines and cowbell-heavy percussion. The authenticity of J Kriv's production is highlighted on the accompanying Instrumental, while old pal Dicky Trisco does his best Walter Gibbons impression on a near 11-minute remix that allows each instrumental part room to breathe.

Review: After working relentlessly for three years to establish the label, the crew behind Luv Shack has been enjoying some much-needed time off. Suitably refreshed, they return with a first EP of 2016: a fine three-tracker from Space Echo (AKA label co-founder Lee Stevens and fellow Austrian Christoph 'caTekk' Abele). Happily, there's plenty to admire, from the loopy, smoky, blues-house shuffle of opener "Go Down" - where infectious, impassioned vocal samples ride a loopy, string-drenched groove - to the fantastically righteous '70s-funk-goes-acid stomp of closer "Rainbow Power". "Rare Function", another trip into chunky disco-house territory that boasts some notable electric piano samples, is also quietly impressive.

Review: Jay Airiness is the latest alias of DJ Moar. Known for his work with his nu-disco group Venice Beach, he, as he claims himself: always has his eyes on the groove. With a fresh vision of club music, he has had releases thus far on Diggin Deeper, Editorial, FKR & Rebel Hearts. Starting this fine EP off with "Grand Baie", a deep and summery nu-disco jam reminiscent of Max Essa, he then gets stuck into the funky and filtered funk sleaze of the title track: those vocoded vocals are wicked! "Priceless Love" goes for some more retro vibes from the '80s which is totally bittersweet and irresistible. Then, on a final note, Reverso 68 main man Pete Herbert serves up an always impressive rendition, in this case the title track which has us counting down the days 'til summer.
