Review: We're not quite sure what Disco Tech is celebrating with the Anniversary Edits, but there's no doubting that it's a bumper collection, stuffed full of tried-and-tested dancefloor rearrangements. Across the 24 tracks, you'll find reworks of familiar favourites ("Dreadlock", "Jamaican Funk", 'Keep Forgettin"), and lesser-known gems ("I Like The Feeling", the deliriously elastic disco workout that is "You're A Winner"), as well as edits that span a wide range of moods and tempos. Highlights naturally come thick and fast, from the pitched-down, boogie-era reggae-disco of "Feel About U" (a killer edit of a tasty cover of an Evelyn "Champagne" King staple), to the subtly beefed up disco-funk strut of "Too Funkay").

Review: Nu-disco hero 80s Child has come a long way since Masterworks Vol 1, the inaugural release on his Masterworks label a year and a half ago. Now we have the follow-up and it reveals how the label's sound has grown. There are 26 sizzling bangers on board this time, boasting a million delirious dance floor moments. 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: 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: A decade has passed since Tom Bioly and Benjamin Frohlich launched their Permanent Vacation label with a compilation of the same name. This fourth instalment sticks to the same formula as its' predecessors, serving up evocative, emotion-rich music that's tickled the fancy of Bioly and Frohlich over the last two years. Predictably, there's much to enjoy throughout, from the hammock-fresh laziness of Carrot Green's dreamy "Vodou", and the instrumental, Balearic synth-pop of Fantastic Man's "Seaside Special", to the tribal drums, jazz bass and ghostly chords of Benedikt Frey's "Lucid Dream". They predictably finish with a flourish, following Mapache's hallucinatory deep house shuffler "Let Me Sleep", with the dubby Balearic beauty of Suzanne Kraft's blissful "Tiles".

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: 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.

Review: Nachtbraker's latest expansive EP for Heist Recordings - his first release of 2016 - boasts a host of hot, floor-friendly excursions. The EP's first two missives offer two distinctly different takes on disco-house - the throbbing sub-bass, extra percussion hits and early Daft Punk riffs of "Gotta Act To React", versus the smooth, classic disco-sampling loop-jam "Pollo Con Pollo" - before the woozy, drawn out "Intermezzlow" allows the Dutch producer to showcase the groovy, downtempo side to his work. The accompanying "Intermezzo" is a jazzy, percussive deep house variation on the same sun-kissed theme, while "Gotta Act To React (Float Mix)" re-casts the EP's opening tune as a hazy deep house bumper.

The Carrington Spirituals - (6:18) 115 BPM
from $1.96
Played by: BRENDON P
Review: Crazy P man Jim Baron once more dons his Ron Basejam alter ego, delivering a strong virtual double A-side for Bristol's Futureboogie Recordings. Opener "Time" not only features some decidedly cosmic spoken word vocals from Vern, but was also co-produced by PBR Streetgang man Bonar Bradberry. In typical Baron fashion, the track is a loose, warm and inviting affair that effortlessly blends live instrumentation (guitars, bass, Clavinet) with a rolling dancefloor groove. "The Carrington Spirituals" is an altogether more urgent affair, and sees the experienced producer offering a typically attractive, horn-heavy take on loopy disco-house.

Review: While the Salty Vibes title makes us think of rum old seadogs, there's little nautical about Alien Disco Sugar's latest expansive collection of re-edits. As usual, though, there's plenty to enjoy across the seven tracks, beginning with the hard-worked filters, impassioned vocals, and grandiose disco bump of opener "Sexy Sugar". Other highlights include two versions of string-drenched mirrorball anthem "People All Over The World", the looped slap bass and razor-sharp guitars of "Do It Good" (a killer version of a Rahaan favourite), and closer "Don't Turn Your Back On Love", a house-friendly re-work of a shimmering, synth-laden '80s soul bumper.

Review: Nebraska has been a busy boy of late, delivering killer material on both Mister Saturday Night and Delusions of Grandeur. Here he dons his favourite balaclava and joins Detroit Swindle's Heist. He begins with the groovy, loose and low-slung disco-house bump of "Khan's Bargain", which is also brilliantly remixed by obscure boogie specialist Tom Noble. The tempo increases dramatically on the wide-eyed deep house sprint of "The Blues", before Nebraska enhances his Balearic house credentials thanks to the blissful synthesizer arpeggio lines and swirling chords of "It Won't Be Long". The spacey, string-drenched shuffle of "Varkala" draws a fine EP to a close.

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: Parisian imprint Rebel Hearts is run by none other than KS French and always delivers in terms of Quality Disco Edits & House Music. On Les SureShot Cuts there are so many delightful mood and grooves to choose from that we're actually a bit miffed that we can only namedrop a few but just for the record: label mainstay MR Given Raw delivers some serious soul funk big band style on his edit of "Give It Up", Belabouche's "Give It" is an edit of a certain diggers delight in the deep funk category and it wouldn't be complete without something by KS French himself who we're pretty certain was involved in the KnG Edits "Hot Dancin" with its sultry repetition looping you into submission in tremendous fashion.

Review: Those who pay close attention to the contemporary edit scene should already be aware of Voodoo Whiskey. The Newcastle-based producer has previously released music on a wide number of labels - Undercover Operations, Editorial and Chopshop included - and here pops up on '80s Child's Masterworks Music. He begins with the bumpin', delay-laden disco-house swing of "Blueberry Muffins", before dipping a toe into the world of filter-heavy disco-funk on the pleasingly sweet and punchy "Get Next To You". Elsewhere, be sure to check out the funked-up disco-house roller "Tutti Frutti" (the main sax riff, in particular, is ace), and closer "Kittiwake Kebab", whose combination of hazy instrumentation and shuffling breakbeats is particularly refreshing.

As per usual label boss KS French is up first, with the urgent fizzy shuffle of "The Disco Way" (a Carl Bean re-edit), before Mr Given Raw delivers both the tough and brassy funk stomp of "Got Competition Baby" and the hard disco house of "Bless Soul". Lastly the meat in this boogie sandwich is provided by Le Smooth, who provides spacey synths and clavinet grooves on "Dance Baby Dance".

Review: Dim Zach begun his career way back in 1990, spinning techno in his native Greece. He's also played live around the World with Liebe. These days, though, he's more focused on disco, and here delivers a fine EP of ear-pleasing re-edits for Spain's Rare Wiri. While the tempos of the five edits on Army of Lovers are undeniably on the pitched-down end of the spectrum, he manages to pack in plenty of energy to get dancefloors moving. Highlights include the sensual, sax-laden disco strut of opener "Give It You", the Middle Eastern intoxication of rearranged cosmic disco fave "Egri", the dilated pupils, hazy spoken word vocals and dreamy Balearic shuffle of "Army Of Lovers", and the hazy looseness of "Lullaby" (a tasty rework of the Cure cut of the same name).

Review: This debut edits EP from Israeli disco duo Rabo & Snob first appeared on wax back in 2014, and here makes it to digital download for the first time. It sees the Tel Aviv twosome deliver a trio of effortlessly groovy, mid-tempo reworks that seemingly bristle with sunny intent. Opener "Here We Come" excites in part due to the tasty combination of hustling Clavinet lines and starry synth-work (though the swinging rhythm below is also rock solid), while "Baci" sees them reaching for the strobe via a trippy, Italo-influenced groove, sweaty percussion hits, and sweeping, tops-off strings. Best of all, though, is the hypnotic bounce, rubbery bass and sultry, late night sensuality of killer closer "Everybody Knows It".

Review: Brooklyn's Razor-N-Tape reach out to the Lowlands and coax Hans Peeman into donning his Junktion alias for a new four-track EP on their Razor-N-Tape Reserve label. Living up to it's dignified and reserved billing, this release on the offshoot finds the Nijmegen-based Peeman laying down some luscious, colourful disco vibes that will brighten up any sun laden afternoon on the terrace. Title track "Hot & Bothered" sets the tone with a summery vibe underpinned by some bumping drums, whilst "I'm wishin'" glides with a subtle house bump and some wonderful vocal touches. "Fling Cleaning" sees Peeman veer off into disco chug territory, whilst "Visions of You" ends the EP on a soulful note.

Review: With the 2016 Ibiza summer season in full swing, Dave 'Joey Negro' Lee has gathered together a bumper collection of label tracks that are currently doing the business on the White Isle. There are few surprises amongst the 28 selections - think swinging piano-house, soulful grooves, sun-kissed broken beat, contemporary disco reworks and synth-heavy boogie-house - but the quality threshold remains remarkably high throughout. Highlights include Lee's glistening 2016 re-rub of his vintage Doug Willis anthem "Spread Love", a deliciously loose and synth-laden Fouk rework of The Sunburst Band, the bad-ass boogie business of Spirit Catcher's "Rendez-Vous", and a killer 1995 rework of Fonda Rae's "Over Like A Fat Rat" from U.S house legend Victor Simonelli.

American/Puerto Rican latin jazz legend Ray Barretto appears with his classic "Fulltime Paradise", the soulman himself Roy Ayers appears also with "Fever". Honorable mentions also to Greek sex symbol Denis Roussos with his majestically sleazy "M-Time" and The Beatles aka The Bugs with "Srgnt Ppr's".. err exucse me? Oh don't worry, groove on!

There's some Salsoul Orchestra sounding big band disco on "Sweet Sensation" And they're not wrong: That Needs An Edit! Chic's "Soup For One" gets a re-splice on "Mojo Soup"; now that definitely needed an edit!

They've rustled up an interesting mix too, starting with the warm mid-paced throb of "Sex' by Black Loops, which features the voice of Scarlett Johansen (from the movie Her). Elsewhere "Waterfalls" by Moritz Butschek, which has that sleazy DJ Hell sound, Portugal's Pixel82 sees his diva house jam Going On given a choppy, hypnotic rework by Australian surfer dude Jad & The Ladyboy. Lastly New York's Doug Gomez wraps things up nicely with the clavinet-driven old school funk joint "Make Your Body Move".

Review: Whoever said that disco was dead was not aware of Dr Packer and his life-restoring scalpel skills. The cover of this eighth installment of edits reveals the good doc and colleagues hard at work resurrecting a giant disco ball and the sonic results can be heard on this mini-album. 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: Scott Moncrief's quietly confident debut album Columbising has been one of the sleeper hits of 2016, with the Sheffield-based East Midlander serving up an effortlessly soulful set that joins the dots between hip-hop, broken beat, boogie, and U.S deep house. This follow-up EP showcases one of the album's highlights, Dave Aju collaboration "Turn It Out." Aju takes the deliciously loose and live-sounding original - all jumpy clavinet lines, swinging deep house drums and urgent vocals - and turns it into a stripped-back, heavily electronic broken house gem. Elsewhere, Lawrence Guy delivers a wonderfully warm, rich and soulful deep house interpretation of Erik Rico hook-up "Boogie Down", before Moncrief enlists the honeyed-tonsils and impeccable piano playing skills of regular collaborator Pete Simpson, on the jazzy gospel-house deepness of "For Bae".

Review: Quite remarkably, Obas Nenor's 2015 debut 12", My Way Home, appeared on Moodyman's Mahogani Music imprint. Since then, he's released hot material on Strictly Rhythm and Sol Power Sound. Here, he pops up on Detroit Swindle's Heist imprint with another strong collection of hazy, low-slung deep house shufflers. He begins with the loose, cheesecake-rich warmth of "The Door", before dipping the tempo a little on the funk-infused groove jam "Glimpse Of Light". There's a pleasingly bluesy feel about the bold and melodious "UV Lights", while "Wakee" offers a nu disco-influenced take on Detroit Beatdown. Mr Tophat's dense, deliciously percussive remix of "The Door" completes an excellent package.

Featuring 27 tracks and a bonus mix by the South Coast dwelling label boss, there's naturally plenty to admire. Highlights include, but are not limited to, the rolling, head-nodding grooves of Eyeco M's "Keeping It To Myself", the killer proto-house throb of "Tonight" by Bad Barbie vs Evil Smarty, the sexy, string-drenched disco loveliness of P-Sol's "Can't You See", LTJ's trumpet-boasting funk bumper "Fat Thing", and the hard-wired, bass-heavy rework of Julia & Company's "Breakin' Down (Sugar Samba)" by Melon Bomb. It is, though, all pretty darn hot.

Review: Todd Terje & The Olsens come correct with their first recorded material after an extended bout of them treating festival audiences to some of the Norwegian's best-loved material, not to mention some killer cover versions. Indeed it's the latter, oft-derided method of recording that forms the basis of this delightfully-presented double pack (we love a good Big Trouble In Little China reference) as Terje and the group rip through renditions of some disco standards from Martin Circus, YMO, Vangelis and more. Given Terje's lengthy range of official and under-the-counter edits, news of this new project makes perfect sense to us. In addition to these cover versions, Olsen have also commissioned some remixes with arch Terje colluder Prins Thomas involved along with Comeme artist Daniel Maloso.

Ok, so he's down to one release a month lately but that's still much more than most can manage. Here the, ahem, "Dirty Analogic Party Vol 16", boasts another ten new jams to get stuck into, with some of our favourites including the throbbing arpeggios of the Moroder-goes-techno opener "Sun Dance", the widescreen Bobby Orlando-style grooves of "Tasma" and the early proto house vibes of "Vanilla Beach". Cool as always.

There are 11 smooth gems here to groove to, some of our favourites including the meaty, meandering bassline and soulful vocals of "Superficial", the funky feminist clap-along "Steppin' (feat Dames Brown)" and the skippy garagey house anthem, "Funk Is Here To Stay".

Review: Stee Downes and Lovebirds' are old pals, and first joined forces for a 12" on Winding Road Records five years ago. Their joint effort on this fine EP, "Love's Like Dancing" is something of a cheery, mood-enhancing treat. A slick vocal number that should suit both disco and house floors, it sounds like classic Blackjoy fused with Lovebirds' usual brand of colourful deep house positivity. Crazy P man Jim Baron dons his now familiar Ron Basejam guise on the remix, delivering a bouncy nu-disco/deep house fusion. Lovebirds goes solo on the woozy, Rhodes-laden deep house haziness of "Feel The Bern", while the accompanying Talkbox Edit adds woozy, robotic vocals into the mix whilst retaining the track's original feel and structure.

Review: Greek based George Kelly aka DJ Butcher runs Chopshop and now introduces Senior Citizens aka DJ ''S'' and DJ Chairman who claim to have 40 plus years of combined DJ experience; certainly nothing to scoff at! Starting out with "My Name Is" which is a kind of sexy samba inspired jam and is well sassy. Next up "What A Body" is more of a soul funk jam with some killer horns and DJ style scratching. "Sookie" follows in suit but this is more sixties style along the lines of Shocking Blue. Finally "Elisa" delves into the exotic on this tabla and sitar realised jam which we really enjoyed.

Review: Razor N Tape has been predictably coy about the identity of new signing Tom of Brooklyn. Whoever the New York man of mystery is, he's certainly capable of crafting hot-to-trot edits that pay due reverence to their obscure source material. There's much to admire on this fine debut EP, from the chopped-up, late night hustle of the delightfully percussive "Disco Maniac", to the loopy disco-funk swing of "Dreamin' Again". Elsewhere, the Big Apple scalpel fiend makes merry on the low-slung, delay-laden disco drum workout "Heavy Dense", and pays tribute to sweltering temperatures and long, lazy days on the shuffling standout "Summerjam". Superb stuff, all told.

That's just the tip of this party-starting iceberg, where no classic is off limits and the focus is placed on all the sweetest spots in the original groove.

Review: Having recently plied his wares on Spain's Rare Wiri, Dim Zach joins forces with fellow scalpel fiend Deem for another five-tracker on Paris's FKR. The duo begins with the beefed-up, Barry White style disco sensuality of "Love Me Less", before dipping the tempo for a Beatdown-speed saunter through the Flamenco-disco world that is "Spanish Heart". The similarly Latin-tinged shuffle of "Cuban Barman" also impresses, while "Fake Darling" is a rolling disco-funk number full of attractive vocal harmonies, clipped guitars and rubbery bass guitar. A fine EP is rounded off by "Why", a solo re-edit by Dim Zach that successfully reworks a well-known, West Coast groover.

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: 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: Parisian label FKR is back with label staple KS French turning in some well executed edits of seventies soul funk classics for DJ use only. Like the titles would suggest there's definitely a tropical aesthetic which is perfect for escapism, amongst its perfectly executed re-takes of several soul, funk and disco (not) classics. These are for those that know. For those that don't; keep diggin' but these will certainly suffice for the time being!

Review: Two years on from his last appearance - a co-production credit on Bra Zil's "Gaeira" on Smilax - Mitiko pops up on Disco Fruit with an eight-track edits E.P. He's clearly been spending plenty of time hanging out in the summer sunshine, because "Soul Baby" is packed to the rafters with groovy, laidback gems that sound tailor-made for hazy afternoons and sultry sunsets. Highlights come thick and fast, from the chopped-up, hip-hop style production and slick guitars of "Let U Know", to the sumptuous, string-drenched disco shuffle of "As U Grow Up", via the effortless jazz-funk bliss of the title track. Check, also, the energetic builds of "Cure For This", a tasty rework of Diana Ross's much re-edited disco classic "Love Hangover".

Review: Dead set on 'funky vibes' Hotmood hail from Mexico (the new, nu-disco capital?) and here they appear on Ganbatte with a new four track gem-filled package. The Country People EP sees them do what they do best - delve deep into the 70s to find the finest slo-mo boogie tunes to edit. The title track is a stomping, clavinet march -along, whilst "I Wanna Funk" sees B.T. Express get stripped down and extended. Elsewhere the squelchy Usisilike gets housed up and "Movin' II (Furious Edit)" is a gloriously uplifting disco chant-along.

Review: Thanks to previous appearances on Disco Deviance, To Rack & Ruin and Special Edition, SHMLSS are firmly established as one of the most talked about re-edit teams in the business. On this latest outing for Giant Cuts, both cuts keep both eyes firmly on the dancefloor, whilst offering just the right balance between disco purism and contemporary production nous. "Stand Acid Edit" does this by adding subtle acid lines to a slowly rising, stretched-out, extra-percussive disco workout, where bold cowbell lines mingle with foreboding piano riffs, punchy horns and swirling strings. "Get Up Dub", on the other hand, brilliantly builds up a stripped-back, effects-laden groove, before unleashing a killer disco groove, righteous horns and sing-along chorus vocals.
