Review: Disco duo Yam Who? know a thing about re-edits, just take a listen to the endless back catalogue of their revered Midnight Riot label. Here they've recruited man about town Amp Fiddler, to rustle up an album's worth of scalpel jobs. 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". Sweet sounds.

Review: Moscow based disco label Vehicle is at it again and delivers the goods as always. They've taken the razor to some oldies but indeed goodies on the Summer Boogie EP. There's quite an all star cast on offer here if we have ever seen one. 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!

Now it's time to shake it up at every house party you can find this summer! Highlights include Bang N Mash's funky old skool Eric B mash-up "I Got Soul", Chudy's "So What?" which intertwines the Tom Tom Club and Destiny's Child to sizzling effect and finally DJ Clairvo who fuses big beat, ragga and vintage organ stabs on "Here Me Now All Massive". Boom!

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: 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: 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.

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: Veteran French producer, Bruno 'Patchworks' Hovart has been creating beautifully crafted vintage-sounding soul, funk and disco for about two decades now. However "No Stoppin' Dat Rockin'" marks his first release for a number of years, and it's good to have him back. This time he offers up five new quality jams; highlights including the delicious virtuosity of his sumptuous Michael Jackson cover "Rock With You (Orchestral Version), the title track's deep and jazzy analogue house and the pulsating retro disco-tech of "Juno Disco". C'est magnifique!

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.

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.

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: Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint has packed in a lot of releases over the past 12 months, as this expansive roundup of the label's second year in business proves. 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: 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: 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: In the hustle and bustle of the disco edit scene, the Disco Fruit crew are committed to keeping the spirit of classic '70s sounds alive. The modern elements are pushed to the back as JB Dizzy gets raunchy with the guitar licks, horn sections and some divine vocoder action on "Midnight Power". Mike Woods meanwhile knows just how to treat "Do You Like The Way That It Feels?" by Tempest Trio, keeping the soul of the original party burner alive while beefing up the drums just a touch. Across this 10-track collection the quality remains unflappable in its channeling of true disco principles.

Review: There is an assurance of filter-rich funk of the highest quality when the Rebel Hearts crew roll into town, and it's no different as Mr Given Raw returns to the fray with a new salvo of glimmering disco edit jewels. Amongst the essential jams given a respectful re-rub is the perennial "Wheel Me Out" from Was (Not Was), here buffed up into an elongated whirlwind of poppin' bass and carnival drums. 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: Following the recent release of Luxxury's double A-side "Hold On"/"Take It Slow", which featured reworks from J Kriv and Crackazat, Deep & Disco presents four more remixes. Greg Wilson delivers two collaborative versions; an acid-flecked deep house-meets-disco tweak of "Hold On", and a hazy, dubby, stripped-back interpretation of "Take It Slow". Arguably the most impressive remix on the package, though, comes from Aficionado Recordings and Music For Dreams artist Vision of Panaorama, whose version of "Take It Slow" is little less than a sparkling, slow-burning Balearic delight. While it retains some elements from the original - notably the bass, guitars and live drums - the additional synths and electronics are little less than sublime.

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.

from $1.96
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: Such has been the rise of Marquis Hawkes in recent times that this debut album must mark as one of the most anticipated house sets of 2016. Happily, Social Housing is a superb showcase not only for Hawkes' talents, but also his understanding of house music in its' many myriad forms. The album does include, of course, a sprinkling of jackin' workouts, but these are outnumbered by such thrilling chunks of loved-up positivity as the Tiger & Woods style loop funk of "Fantasy", the Theo Parrish-ish jazz fuzziness of "Summer Memory", and the cheeky, Todd Edwards style cut-up garage of "Something In Yr Head" [sic]. The album's most potent moment, though, is "I'm So Glad", a collaboration with Jocelyn Brown that already ranks among 2016's most potent tunes.

Review: The Alpaca Edits camp are back with Anything To Stay Up. Stevie Wonder's classic "Love's Light In Flight" (known here as "Acid Paradise") gets a re-rub and is almost as good as that great one by Soul Clap a few years ago. 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!

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: 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: 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: 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: Label-hopping Siberian Sunner Soul is in a cheery mood, which may - in part, at least - be down to his return to the Vintage Music imprint he founded in 2009. The positively titled Happy EP begins with "Hang On", a deliciously hazy, dreamy chunk of fluttering disco-meets-deep house bliss built around slowly shifting loop patterns, stretched-out builds, cut-up samples and bouncy bottom end. Horn-heavy title track "Happy" is little less than a rush-inducing romp through party-starting disco-funk cheeriness, while "All Right" sees him expertly re-arrange (and tool-up) a shuffling, sun-kissed disco-funk cut full of rising string lines, fizzing jazz-funk synths and punchy horn lines. In other words, it's an EP chock full of mood enhancing moments.

Review: Following recent excursions on Masterworks Music and Rebel Hearts, Kiu D returns to Hotbox Boogie, a label he's graced multiple times over the years. As usual, the four tracks on offer - three of which were co-produced by pal MKV - blend extensive samples from original disco and boogie records, with original musical elements. He begins with the clipped guitars, familiar vocal samples, and throbbing nu-disco synth bass of "Funky People", before delivering a breezier chunk of cheery disco-house in the shape of "Love Player". "Spank" puts a heavyweight disco rocket under the backside of Jimmy 'Bo' Horne classic "Spank", before the package is completed by the Bohannon-in-dub throb of "Funky People (Labour of Love Dub)".

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.

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.

While closer "If There's Love Don't Throw It Away" reaches the dizzy heights of 120 BPM - along the way stretching and dubbing out a swirling, string-drenched chunk of loved-up disco-soul - the EP's other two tracks are slow, smooth, hypnotic and groovy. Choose between the walking bassline, sensual vocals, jazzy solos and head-in-the-clouds vibe of "The Cost Of Love", and "So Glad You're Mine", a toe-tappin', head-noddin', summer soul cool-down full of loose drum breaks, fuzzy horns and razor-sharp strings.

Review: Few re-edit series of recent times have been quite as consistent as the Editor's Kutz EPs. We can happily report that they've maintained these high standards on volume six. Vinyladdicted and Sleazy McQueen join forces on the opener, a rolling, head-nodding stoner rock re-cut that makes excellent use of subtle disco-house trickery. Regular studio buddies Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee do an excellent job in looping up and dubbing out Marcus Valle's Balearic disco classic "Estrellar" (here re-titled "Stellar Dub"), while The Silver Rider chops between drum rolls and charity shop disco thrills on "Good Lovin' Baby". Finally, Doc Jam turns a well-known disco staple into a Soundstream style cut-up disco-house shuffler.

Review: Back in March, Rayko and James Rod launched their Classics of Arrikitaun series with an EP of largely impressive re-edits on Rare Wiri. This second volume delivers more breezy, midtempo goodness for those who like their grooves sunny and synth-heavy. Predictably, Rayko's two contributions tend towards the Balearic boogie, with the drifting, delay-laden vocals, rubbery synth-bass and glistening guitars of "Betcha" just elbowing out Midnight Starr cut-up "Headlines" in the "highlight" stakes. As for Rod, he urges us to grab a glass of something cool, sweet and refreshing on the piano-laden disco shuffle of "Silver Bike", before closing his eyes and raising his arms heavenward on the sensual boogie throb of "The Name Of Love".

He first takes the knife to the Jackson 5's "Dancing Machine" on "Generation 5" (great edit this one!), then he turns in an edit of a proper soul funk classic on "Repeat The Funk" (any guesses?) but finally he gives a Bill Withers classic a makeover on "You Got The Stuff". Class!

Review: Verona's Marco Dionigi is back for his always impressive Quantistic Division which has been instrumental in spreading the word of this Northern Italian legend's work as much as it has for Balearic legend and close collaborator Daniele Baldelli. "Dollars" is a tough, dark and driving disco journey for afterhours basements and those pitch shifted/druggy vocals are an added sinister touch. The "Cosmic mix" is more restrained and minimal, giving those great elements such as those 80's horror movie synths and metallic Linn drums room to breathe.

Review: Weighing in at a whopping 29 tracks deep, the latest instalment in the re-born Paper Recordings' label compilation series, Paper Cuts, is something of a sprawling epic. It draws mostly on material released over the last two years, which has seen a dramatic increase in the volume of label missives. Taking in a wide array of house, disco and Balearic flavours, it's tightly packed with dancefloor-friendly treats. Highlights are, of course, plentiful, from the cheery Scandolearic shuffle of Diskobeistet's "Gammal Morro" and the dreamy deep house throb of Neil Quigley's gorgeous "Loops For Peace", to the wonky rave revivalism of Flash Atkins' "Drug Empire", and the sparkling Italo-disco revivalism of Leon Sweet's "Below".

Review: Here, old friends and regular studio partners Marco Dionigi and Danielle Baldelli once again join forces to deliver some distinctly Italian dancefloor thrills. While the duo's cosmic roots shine through on the druggy, synth-heavy pulse of "I Can't Escape From You", and pitched-down, Clavinet-heavy Afro-cosmic trip "Amandi Tereo", it's the most obviously disco-centric "Sit Back" that really sets the pulse racing. The EP-opening "Funky Mix" is particularly good, and focuses the action on "Superstition"-style jammed-out clav riffs, sparse drum machine percussion, and some deliciously hazy effects. In contrast, the "Dark Mix" is more obviously electronic, with winding top lines wrapping themselves around the duo's bubbly beats.

Then MGR takes over for two sizzlers - the catchy soul-pop lament "Beggin You" and the psychedelic soul stomp of "Funky Mama". Finally the titans clash on the phased disco-boogie joy of "Never Give You Up". Good times.

Review: Given their extensive shared musical history and influences, you'd expect this hook-up between former Classic/Music For Freaks types Luke Solomon and Jonny Rock to contain some belting cuts. Predictably, it does. Dancefloor sweatiness is guaranteed from the start, via the undulating, Moroder-inspired bass guitar, spacey electronics, clipped guitars and dense disco percussion of "Luca Frangipan", and its' suitably trippy, more heavily electronic companion Dub. There's a breezier, looser feel to "Groovin' To La", which expertly teases out soulful vocal samples and soaring strings atop a bouncy Italo-disco/deep house/classic disco fusion groove. The accompanying Dub mix is, if anything, even stronger. Sadly, this digital version of the EP doesn't feature DJ Fett Burger & Jayda G's killer remix, so you'll have to buy the 12" to get that.

"Octopussy" and "Rock Me" inject a little more house-minded pump into the proceedings, but the chunky synth lines and slick rhythmic edits still represent the core of Daddy Kane's ample repertoire. Keep an ear out for the radio-friendly funk of "Need Ur Love" which comes on like late era Fatback Band and sounds all the better for it.

Review: Evil Smarty has spent much of his successful re-edit career collaborating with the equally cheekily named Bad Barbie. Here, he goes solo, delivering a four-track missive of reworks for '80s Child's Masterworks Music label. He gets things going with the throbbing, electro-disco stomp of "Disco Glory", before dipping the tempo for a dreamy rearrangement of Surface's loved-up synth-boogie classic "Falling In Love" (here simply titled "Falling", and arguably one of the most re-edited tunes of all time). "Go Gain" is a brilliant chunk of rock-tinged power-boogie (think bold synth bass, swooping sound effects, razor-sharp guitars and poodle perms), while "Eye 2 Eye" is a tooled-up, house-friendly sprint through purple funk pastures.

Review: On paper, this collaboration between veteran Balearic/disco/house fusionists Faze Action, and Zimbabwean drummer-turned-vocalist Zeke Manyika has all the makings of a humid, sun-kissed classic. Happily, "Mangwana" - a kind of late '80s Hugh Masekela Balearic afro-house jam full of punchy horns, chiming synth melodies and chanted African vocals - is every bit as alluring as you'd expect. The Waiting For The Rain-era Masekela influences are even stronger on the delicious A Vision of Panorama mix, while the Paradise '89 Dub pushes the track further towards dubbed-out New York house territory while beefing up the backing track a little. Elsewhere on the EP, you'll find two superb versions of the percussive, tropical '80s workout "Kumbengo" (including a heavy, Junodownload-only Dub), and the hazy downtempo goodness of "Chiiko".
