Shake It - (6:09) 115 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Serious edit heat from the young Parisian who's always on the Pulse: Three well known funk soul classics, Rhyze's "Relax & Enjoy" gets an upbeat, roof-raising treatment with full emphasis on the instantly distinctive groove. Spinners' "It's A Shame" enjoys a sun-splashed Brazilian treatment while GQ's "Shake" gets a turbo-charged shake-up that makes it more floor friendly than a thick shag carpet. And that's friendly. Get to know.

Soul Orbit - (4:47) 125 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Danish deep house talent Paxton Fettel unleashes three disco-infused house cuts through disco specialists Apersonal Music. Fettel joins the family of the label's fine roster of retro-tone music makers backed up with a Jimpster remix. Always in the search of timeless music pieces the Spanish imprint sure found a fine exponent of their unique trippy melodic universe with Fettel's offer on this EP. "She's All Right", "Sundown, as the Beat Gently Skips" and "Tripped Out" make a solid statement of nu-disco editing in a house fashion, new to the artist but with a solid experience on the label's trajectory. To push the boundaries of Fettel's sound no other than high-fi music creator Jimpster to remix "She's All Right", opening a special space for the track on any dance floor filled with raving house lovers.

Sad Future - (6:08) 110 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Serbian disco/house type Tonbe seems to reserve the Loshmi alter-ego for some of his finest reworks; killer edits of often obscure or overlooked material that shows due reverence to the source material. That's certainly the case here, as he works his way through a variety of styles over the course of six suitably hot edits. So, he treats us to some soaring '80s soul revivalism ("Real Love"), jaunty but tight, piano-laden electrofunk ("Be My Love"), surging, high-octane, disco-funk (the string laden madness that is "Depends On You"), and even a dash of punchy boogie-rap (the brilliant "Sad Future", which comes complete with an excellent spoken vocal and some terrifically sleazy sax solos).

Review: Antipodean disco dabbler, Dr Packer, will see you now. He's now reopened his surgery and this fifth volume is simply bursting with stuff that's good for you. There are eight new jams in total including the cheeky pop ragga of "Sensi", the well-oiled bass machine "Get Down" and electro-funk squelcher "One For Me". A fine remedy for any disco related ailment!

Ep by Olivier Boogie on Whiskey Disco Cue Track
You Know Who - (6:06) 106 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Dutch DJ and producer Olivier Boogie has been doing his thing in Amsterdam, largely without credit, for the best part of a decade. He's previously released both original productions and re-edits, with two contributions to a split Lumberjacks In Hell release back in 2012 standing out. Here he returns - at long last - with an edit EP of his own for Whiskey Disco. There's naturally much to admire, from the soaring strings, undulating bass and disco-funk hustle of "Got To Have Loving" and jaunty Rodriguez re-rub "Can't Get Away" being particularly potent. He also delivers a dash of head-nodding boogie ("You Know Who"), and turns a little-known funk jam into a shuffling house hustler ("Lost In The Crowd").

Capitan Futuro - "Club Warzone" - (4:41) 125 BPM
from $1.49
Review: For this latest release on the long-running Chopshop imprint, Greece-based bossman DJ Butcher has decided to flip the script. Instead of delivering cheeky disco re-edits, Dope Hip Cuts revisits the now overlooked world of classic hip-hop mash-ups. Ill Advised's excellent opener "Grunt Without The Noise", for example, expertly fixes a Public Enemy acapella to a sweaty, horn-heavy funk groove, while Captain Futuro's "Break Me Off" and "Club Warzone" turn more recent hip-hop and R&B jams into toe-tapping, head-nodding disco-meets-jazz-funk dancefloor jams. Phat Camel impresses, too, with "I Wish", which doffs a cap to Yam Who's infamous early 2000s reworks of contemporary soul, hip-hop and R&B killers.

Get Over You by Pontchartrain on Whiskey Disco Cue Track
Pontchartrain - "Get Over You" - (7:26) 116 BPM
from $1.49
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.

Review: Not to be confused with the techno-minded Dutch label of the same name, this Deep Sense is based out of Mexico, they have a penchant for the funkier side of the dance and the cheekier side of edit culture. They proved it on their inaugural voyage in November 2014, and they're proving it once again right here... Kicking off with the sax-massaging jack-jam "The Road To Kalakuta" the whole album is an instant party full of sassy sonic surprises. Highlights include the dusty vinyl crackles and heaving harmonics of Rafael Fernandez's "Nothing's Changed", the epic synth-slapping cosmicity of Funk My Jesus "24K", the classic funk guitar squeezes of Chuggin Edits "We Got The Funk". And that's just a handful of party peals to be harvested from this 16-track heavy album. Bon voyage indeed!

Love You Too Much - (6:53) 105 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Copenhagen-based crate digger Ziggy Phunk has built up a big following on SoundCloud for his boogie, electrofunk and '80s soul reworks. Here he pops up on Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint with a white-hot collection of six of his finest. While seasoned diggers and old heads may spot some of the source material, for the most part he's breathing new life into long-forgotten gems. There's plenty to get excited about, from the breezy piano solos, rubbery bass and bongo-laden grooves of the impeccable "All Night Long", to the clipped guitars, darting synths and Jheri curls of "Every Girl". Arguably best of all, though, is the saucer-eyed, loved-up sweetness of closer "Love You Too Much", a prime slice of yearning '80s soul tweaked to perfection with the addition of some top notch use of delays.

Review: Having previously mined the worlds of disco, boogie and funk for inspiration, Smooth Operators sees the We Mean Disco crew change tack. Instead of their usual, party-friendly fare, we get a quartet of Sade revisions, with some of the sultry singer's finest moments getting the rework treatment. So, Mr Matrix delivers an undulating, super-smooth deep house version of "Couldn't Love You More" (complete with thrilling analogue bass), KidPariz turns "Hang Onto Your Love" into a loopy, mostly instrumental chugger, and We Mean Disco give "Paradise" the sweet, lo-slung, midtempo disco-house treatment. Best of all, though, is Dan K's chunky, sax-laden rework of the anthem-like "Smooth Operator"; a sing-along deep house classic in the making.

There's a further four jams to check out here too, including a cool, Balearic rework of Sheila E's "Love Bizarre", a totally dubbed out version of "Walking On Sunshine" and the synthy, meandering disco house joint, "Take My Love".

Review: The honour of fronting the latest installment of Katakana's Edits series has been bestowed on the Bergerac of funk himself, Jersey's Zemerald (aka Joseph Kavanagh). Without missing a beat he rises to the challenge and delivers five expertly sliced reworks, with some of our faves including "Soul Girl" a sassy, stompin' retort to the more famous Soul Man, the raw R&B of "Candy" and the guilty pleasures of "Wicked Drummer", a cheeky update of the classic Funky Drummer break.

Review: San Sebastian-based twosome Jaime Sagastibeltza and Borja Campion have been doing the rounds for sometime, though their releases have been limited (a single on Is It Balearic, and a collection of edits for Los Grandes). Here they attempt to step up to the next level via an excellent, coldwave and Italo influenced chunk of atmospheric, darkroom nu-disco for Nein. The excellent original version - think Brian Ferry style vocals, relentless low register guitars and murky synthesizer arpeggios - is joined by a quartet of remixes. Arguably most impressive is Factory Floor's revision, which blackens the track further via woozy analogue electronics, bongo-laden rhythms and psychedelic melodies. Elsewhere, Rodion goes all macabre acid house, and Reverso 68 turn the track into a surprisingly cheery Balearic disco chugger.

Review: Hailing from Mexico, The Funk Disco District are on a mission to spread good vibes courtesy of impossibly slick 'sample based music...made to move people all around the world". Here, through Hotbox Records, they deliver their three latest jams - the deliciously fluid and jazzy Latin-disco-isms of "I'm Gonna Get You Baby", the uber slick, spacey disco-cocktail-house of "Get On Down" and the sumptuously languid Balearica of "Feelin' Alright". Smart!

Review: Dealing strictly in extended collections, Funk Fusion continues its extensive work into 2015 with a 22-track compendium of killer edits, bootlegs and reversions. With an emphasis on fine-tuned, low-swung party jams; highlights include the subtle acid treatment of En Vogue ("Get It"), silky, synth-slapping disco boogie ("Mistery Island"), badass blue grass ("Bluesy Bounce"), Chic-style Public Enemy subversion ("Funky Enemy Number One") and smoke-stacked skank science ("Method Man"). Fusion by name, funky by nature: no party should be without this collection.

With full focus locked on the heart of the party, there's no beard grazing crate stroking here, just straight up party exciters.

Wow factor set to stun.

Featuring the likes of Alkalino, Flash Atkins, Tuxxedo, 80s Child, Yam Who and many more respected names in edit craft and genuine disco specialism, you know this is the real deal before you even press play. Highlights include Sophie Lloyd's bluesy fused edit of Kongas' "Tattoo Woman", Flash Atkins' P-funk busting stomper "The Jungle", Pablo & Shoey's slinky, slippery bass-laced "Love Feelin'" and Yam Who's straight-up disco slapper "Don't You Want My Love".

Review: You'd struggle to find a more passionate champion of the nu-disco and re-edits scene than Yam Who. His edit-focused Midnight Riot label does a great job in spotting and showcasing talent. Somewhat predictably, this eighth installment in the label's self-titled compilation series is another winner. It features some 31 tracks, plus a bonus mix from the Dead Rose Music Company, and bristles with the kind of floor-friendly material that blurs the boundaries between electrofunk, nu-disco, house, funk, soul and, of course, straight-up disco. Given the sheer scale of the collection, picking highlights is tough, but look out for some urgent boogie business from Rayko, a dose of spinetingling, sax-laden sweetness from Goldboy, and a live bass and vintage synthesizer rinse-out from Fran Deeper and James Rod.

Review: Warrington-based 80s Child is turning into a one-man re-edit machine, delivering floor-friendly touch-ups of synth-heavy electrofunk, 80s soul and boogie jams on a regular basis. There's naturally much to admire about this third EP for regular home Midnight Riot, from the rolling boogie-house revision of stone cold classic "Flashback" - all carefully cultivated loops, filters and metronomic pulse - to the chiming synthesizer melodies, vocal breakdowns and delay-laden drums of "This Love". Arguably best of all, though, is the heavyweight swing, looped vocals and killer synth bass flex of "Run From My Love", one of his strongest rubs to date.

Review: Getting his name out there following a single on Winding Road Records in 2013, Lonely Boy is making his intentions clear on this single for Futureboogie. The LA-based producer has a strong handle on the kind of sleazy, four-to-the-floor house music that the Bristolian label favours, and the title-track delivers on every level. "The Subtle Frenzy" has a powerful emotive streak at the core of its own fuzzy synth lines, while "Take Your Time" drifts into slower, more thoughtful territory to show there's more than one side to this boogie-loving beatsmith. The Emperor Machine, meanwhile, whips up a chunky electro-house version of "I Like Disco" that adds a little more meat for the more pumped-up dancefloors.

Review: Japanese DJ/producer Kezokichi made quite an impression during his time in London. Now he's returned to Tokyo and launched his own record label, Blindetonation, dedicated to "the disco of randomness - Balearic, drug chug, slow motion and weird vibe". Here, he kicks it off with an expansive compilation featuring a range of well regarded and little-known artists. Naturally, there's much to enjoy, from the sweet, analogue bounce of Jamie Paton's "Keys For Your Keeper (Dub)" and the near psychedelic chug of Tronik Youth's "The Past", to the bubbling electronics and eyeliner-clad melodies of Kieran Holden's "Stubbies", and the twisted, slow motion acid of Duncan Gray's "Kickintrusion".

from $1.49
Review: While Lino Rodriguez is clearly a talented producer of original house material, many of his strongest releases are actually those built around creative re-imaginings and subtle dancefloor reworks of vintage tracks. This EP of re-edits is a perfect example. He barely puts a foot wrong throughout, variously turning a 1980s Zimbabwean dancefloor jam into a killer disco/house jam ("Lion of Zimbabwe"), breathing new life into a heavyweight disco smoker ("Shotgun") and tooling up a sweet, early '60s soul cut (the end-of-night brilliance of "Take It Easy"). As if that wasn't enough to get the juices flowing, he also delivers an impressively heavy rearrangement of '80s breakdance classic "Set It Off" (here re-titled "Off").

Review: The notion of Jose Padilla releasing an album on International Feel makes perfect sense, the two go together like Bogart and Bacall. Last year the Cafe Del Mar legend appeared on Mark Barrott's label with Solito and this set the wheels in motion for an album by Padilla that remains under wraps for now. A taste of what is to come arrives in the shape of Day One, a release that sees Padilla working with Norwegian producer Telephones (a man who has his own LP due on Running Back) and it has set opener written indeliably into it's DNA. Few other tracks this week pack as much vivid detail and colour into them as the eight minutes of "Day One" do and Telephones achieves similar levels of magic on his accompanying Club Dub.

Review: Second comings are in the air these days what with the return of both Moroder and Chic. Well, veteran Greek DJ Leonidas was returning before they were(!) and he's been firing out killer re-edits for the last few years under the Alien Disco Sugar moniker. Here we get four new (old) cuts - "Get Over You" is housed up and filtered down electro-boogie, "Love Sign" is a subtle re-tweak of a '90s Prince/Nona Gaye jam, "Music Of Life" is hazy Balearic bliss, and "Keep It Up" wraps on a similar, but slower, and longer, note.

Review: Disco never dies, and as such it's a real pleasure to see veteran Greek DJ Leonidas (aka Alien Disco Sugar) enjoy a whole new lease of life in the re-edit age. His latest release, the Payback EP boasts four new jams - the bouncy mid-paced sizzler "Lets Get It On", the James-Brown-on-ludes slow-crunch of "JB Payback", the hyperactive hysteria of "Rok Da House" and the breezy, top down glide of "(Looking For) Somebody". Dancefloors everywhere, considered yourselves destroyed!

Review: With the possible exception of slo-mo sensation LTJ, Belabouche is Italy's finest scalpel specialist. He usually digs deep for source material, and the resultant reworks are both reverential (largely steering clear of over-quantized drums and filter tricks) and dancefloor-friendly. This third EP of edits for FKR is full of tasty morsels, from the freshly baked party grooves of cheery funk shuffler "Jam On Sun" and the sensual '80s soul loveliness of "My Life", to the soaring, string-laden peaktime disco of "At The Park". Best of all, though, is opener "Turned On", a mid-tempo chunk of horn tootin' disco that shuffles, throbs and climaxes in all the right places.

from $1.49
Review: There's a touch of the Clash Of Titans here, with prominent Brooklyn re-edit label Razor N Tape recruiting James Baron (Ron Basejam/Crazy P) for a heavyweight nu-disco release. Baron doesn't disappoint either, delivering three tough disco housers that touch on 80s electro-boogie ("Love Don't Wait"), soulful gospel ("Someday") and loopy, filtered funk ("We Supply").

Fur Hildegard Von Disco - (6:04) 112 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having recently concentrated on handing debuts to little-known artists, Midnight Riot has decided to take a slightly different approach for this latest outing. It comes from Trujillo, a man whose Balearic inclined blends of deep house and nu-disco have previously impressed via Spain's Apersonal imprint. As usual, there's much to enjoy, from the sunny shuffle, soulful vocals (seemingly borrowed from an R&B record) and cute Balearic touches of "Makin' Me High", to the head-nodding, nu-disco-goes-hip-house loveliness of "Postin' High". Also worth a look is "Fur Hildegard Von Disco", a deliciously hazy, sun-kissed chugger built around sweet, delay-laden guitars, baggy grooves and Prince style vocal hooks (drenched, naturally, in plenty of delay).

Supermoon - (6:12) 125 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Alex Burkat's track record over the past couple of years is pretty impressive, with well-regarded releases on 100% Silk, Third Ear and Mister Saturday Night. Here he pops up on Munich's Permanent Vacation with some picturesque, widescreen deep house. The title-track sets the tone, delivering a veritable starburst of flowery synthesizer melodies, dreamy pads, shuffling rhythms, twittering flutes and becalmed harps. Barnt impressively turn the track on its head, retaining the trademark melodies while opting for a far more immersive, stripped back and yearning feel. Elsewhere, "Three Rivers" is loose, organic and jazz-flecked (while also boasting spacey electronics), and "Supermoon" is little more than an intergalactic deep house hug.

Review: For a label that only launched this spring, four volumes of creatively executed party jams is beyond impressive. We reckon this could be Funk Fusion's best yet, too. From Rhythm Scholar's respectfully tripped out twist on "Lucy In The Sky" to Fabioulous Barker's slap-bass blazed take on Skeelow via the funkiest ever version of 2Pac's "California Love", it's an impressive collection that leans towards the more subtle art of editing rather than crass bootleg cut-and-shuts and will have a lot more timeless appeal as a result.

Review: Just weeks have passed since he treated us to volume one, NY P-Sol editor returns with another varied selection of disco funk versions. "On A Trip" adds a little contemporary production magic to the Garden Of Eden's long-lost classic. "Good Years" is a full fuelled funk bluster with an empowering spoken word sample, "Body Language" slaps hard with squidgy synth bass boogie punches, while "This Must Be Home" takes Eno & Byrne on a whimsical funk mission in a Cadillac made of pure post-disco magic.

Aperol Sunset - (5:06) 110 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Dicky Trisco
Review: Long-term collaborators Pete Herbert and Dicky Trisco once again join forces, this time for a trio of cuts that mark the first instalment of the Paradise Row series. There's naturally much to admire, from the breezy, Latin-influenced keys, Balearic disco grooves and killer vocal samples of "Hanging Out" (think T-Coy meets Reverso 68), to the eyes-closed warmth, tumbling acoustic guitars and chugging groove of closer "Aperol Sunset". Arguably best of all, though, is "Machine 16", a thrillingly upbeat cut that peppers a chunky Balearic disco groove with killer pianos and sweet, life-affirming guitar licks. If cheery, feelgood disco is your thing, you need Paradise Row Volume 1 in your life.

Review: Peza is a shady re-edit hero, whose previous releases have created all kinds of a stir in the disco world. This latest EP, Subway, for the esteemed Midnight Riot, has already notched up some serious pre-release support from the likes of Andy Weatherall and Horse Meat Disco. One listen to the four tracks included here and you can tell why - we get everything from some slowed-down Eurythmics ("Stranger") to the deep and spacey funk grooves of "You Ain't Never" via the female disco/clavinet interface funk of "Do You Have Any?".

Review: France's legendary swing-house producer Phil Weeks drops a new two-tracker on Robsoul. As per usual, it's nothing but sweet party vibes from Mr Weeks, who brings through his inimitable, filtered sample style to the floor. "Bad Chance Went Thru My Mind" is a disco-leaning house number complete with seductive vocal chops and sliding shots of percussion. "Baila Baila" is more of a DJ tool but it too comes chock-a-block with circling vocal samples and Weeks' typical flair. If you're into his previous stuff then this will certainly not disappoint.
