Review: Editorial is one of the leading re-edit labels currently doing the business, so it's only fitting that they should enlist some leading re-editors for Love Dubs. Australia's Dr Packer leads the charge with a sublime spaced out version of Teena Maries' slap bass classic Behind The Groove. Further highlights include the slo-mo, hands in the air vibes of "Bionic Love" by Robjamweb and the orchestrated '70s glamour beat of "Smile" by Black Rebel.

Review: The last missive from DJ Vas HQ was way back in November of last year. Thankfully the summer's sunny allure seems to have got his creative juices flowing and now we have four new offerings for our aural pleasure. Roy Ayers' "Our Love Will Bring Us Back Together" is teased out into sinewy, high-end boogie and BB&Q's "Imagination" home is improved, getting rebuilt into lasered robot funk. Crown Heights Affair also get two hip swaying brassy tracks featured here, rounding off the euphoric party vibes in style.

A Lullaby For Spiderman (The Phantom Flan Flinger remix - free track) - (9:28) 100 BPM
from $1.37
Review: "Mind Biscuit": Something tasty for your brain to chew on while your feet mulch up the dancefloor. Auckland crew Monkey Boots lay down two jack-slapping originals that dig deep into the true deep house psyche. "Impossible Need" comes with smoky vocal and smouldering bass vibes on the groove while "Yearning For You" slaps with a lighter sensation, all wafty minor key organs and soul-stirring vocals. Remix-wise Reed & Radley subvert "Yearning For You" with a little more space and reverbed magic while The Phantom Flan Flinger gets all reflective and shimmering on the Balearic bomb "Lullaby For Spiderman". Beautiful.

Review: Yam Who?'s Midnight Riot label is one of the big daddies of the current nu-disco scene. His eponymous compilation series are known for their ridiculously high levels of quality and this latest one is no different - there's a whopping 24 tracks to choose from. Strangely the label boss doesn't seem to appear this time round but we do get the silky electro-house of Digital Human's "You're My Last Chance", the killer cyborg electro-funk of 80s Child's "Contagious" and the other-worldly deep-jacking soul of "U Know How To Love Me".

Surgery Edits Vol 3 by Dr Packer on DiscoDat Cue Track
You Can't Play Around - (6:27) 111 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Surgery Edits Vol 3 sees Aussie editor Dr Packer apply the knife to a selection of stone cold disco and funk classics. Extending and exciting at every opportunity, there's an emphatic headnod to the '80s throughout as we ignite with crisp revisions of both Jocelyn Brown's "Somebody Else's Guy" and Change's "Change Of Heart". As the doctor digs deeper we're treated to savage synth boogie badness by way of the slap-bass and horn heavy "Luv Ya Lady", a dubby dedication to George Benson's "Give Me The Night" and some cool filtered flurries on Lace's "Can't Play Around". Weighing in at near-album size, edit collections don't come much more extensive than this.

Review: Spanish nu-disco DJ Nelue has developed quite a reputation for himself both with his residency at his Moroder Sound Club and with his label, Groove Democracy. Now he's upped his game again by delivering a seriously impressive 24-track label compilation featuring his own work and a selection of offerings from a host of key names on the re-edit scene. Highlights include Nelue's gentle retweak of Terri Well's 1984 anthem "All My Love", the chuggy arpeggiation of "Canebiere Man" and The Metaphysical's Bloop Crack glorious extension of Wham!'s kitchen synth drama, "Everything She Wants".

Jamie Trench - "That Groovy Thing" - (6:12) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Roots For Bloom SHAG Edits series returns with volume 3. M.James brings us a track that will catch any music lovers ear. With the crisp percussion, delicate guitar riffs, a bassline that keeps evolving throughout and that vocal, this one ticks all the boxes. On the flip label boss Jamie Trench maintains the general feel for the record. This one focusing on a simpler yet just as effective bassline and obviously being heavily reliant on the sample being in the shag edits series. If you're looking for that record that stands out from the rest, this is the weapon you need.

Big Game Fishing EP by Tonbe on Midnight Riot Cue Track
Disco Nights - (6:04) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It would be fair to say that Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint is good at spotting talent on smaller labels and giving them a bit of a push. The latest to receive this treatment is Tonbe (AKA Serbian producer Milos Djordjevic). The Big Game Fishing EP is arguably his strongest EP to date, and sees him going deeper into disco production whilst retaining his usual house-friendly dancefloor sensibility. Opener "Original Tool" - all rousing horns, clipped guitars, smothering organs and chunky beats - is particularly potent. The deep house-boogie fusion "Money Maker" is tasty, too, while "Explore Your Fantasy" expertly layers parping horns and funk guitars over a slap bass-propelled groove. Closer "Disco Nights" - a breezy, summery nu-disco jam destined for heavy rotation in sunny climes - is also pretty nifty.

Played by: FINGERMAN, Grass Green
Review: Auckland's deep delving duo Monkey Boots are back with a new version of "Whitworth Strut", this time reworked by disco royalty himself, Greg Wilson. Under Wilson's guidance the track becomes like a whooshy, subaquatic disco swim with tides of touchy feely loops washing all over the listener in blessed-out joy. Elsewhere we get a new track "Hold Back The Night", which is a lean and mean slice of linear electro funk (also successfully dubbed out by Andy Hart) that clocks in at a whopping eight minutes!

Koko Edits #4 by Koko on Basic Fingers Cue Track
Love Aboard (Koko re-edit) - (8:34) 124 BPM
from $1.49
Review: When you think of Basic Fingers, it's hard not to associate the label with the seasoned disco tweaking activities of Koko Garito, a man whose been integral in establishing the label within the edit community from the very off (remember that slick Skipworth & Turner edit on FINGERS001?) As you might have gathered from the title, this is the fourth solo Koko release for Basic Fingers and commences in jazz funk heaven with an edit of Deodato called "Family Affair" which shows off his skills for rearrangement and deft EQ for nine glorious minutes. Meanwhile, "Welcome Aboard" sees Koko flipping a Barry White and Webster Lewis arrangement in equally silky fashion, making it a perfect nugget for the early afternoon boat parties this summer.

To Rack & Ruin Vol 4 by Out Of The Basement on To Rack & Ruin Cue Track
Brother's Dub - (5:22) 91 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Out of the Basement are Steve Leggat and James Ellis, both players in Manchester's music scene. Now they've hooked up with the El Diablo Social Club boys to finally deliver two much sought after edits. Both these tunes have been floating around in various forms for a while, but now they've been spruced up for a 'proper' release. "Take Me With You" layers an old soul vocal over new punk-funky live instrumentation for a slick head nodder. "Brother's Dub" meanwhile, is a slinky slo-mo edit of the Brothers Johnson cover of Shuggie Otis anthem "Strawberry Letter 23".

Review: The good DJ Reverend P has already contributed two tight edits 12"s to the GAMM cause for the disco and house selectors out there and now he surfaces with more of the same for the similarly minded Basic Fingers label. With a summer of European coastline festivals beckoning, "Angels In Africa" is the swooning Chicago house and pop-influenced vocal jam and a perfect fit for sunshine filled dancefloors. And just as Michael Jackson's Xscape hits the shelves, why not get in the mood for some more bubblegum pop - turned house - with a cheeky Justin Timberlake infused "Just In Strawberry". Hee hee.

Review: Sympathetic re-edit guy Disco Tech is back home at DiscoDat following a brief appearance on Editor's Kutz. Yes, Mr Tech doesn't like to interfere with the original production of his source material, he just tweaks and extends instead. Here we have six sizzling gems, the highlights of which include the loco '70s grind of "Funk Train", the slo-mo orchestrated disco stroller "Get Some" and the euphoric female fronted funk jam of "Time To Do".

Review: Staffordshire's Rich Lane made some serious waves recently with slo-mo Balearic bomb "Shelves" getting serious plays from the likes of Emperor Machine and Tronik Youth. For his latest release (on a split EP) he's chosen to present a cool, linear re-edit of A Split Second's 1986 classic "Flesh" - originally a faster punk record, it famously gave birth to Belgian New Beat when DJs played it at 33rpm and slowed to -8. Also included is returning '90s hero Peza (Lee Perry) with a reworked version of No More Nightmares - now stripped back to a slow acidic chugger.

Review: Re-edit don Rayko still seems to be able to pull gems out of the bag at an alarming rate. Here he's done it again with a selection 'cheeky' edits, some more obvious than others. "Can't Get Enough" is made for those in love with the glistening dry ice electronics of mid-80s soul, Linn drum breaks and all. "Rock My World" is a re-work of Wacko Jacko's opinion-dividing 2001 comeback single, "Step Out Of My Dreams" is killer West End-style electro-disco and finally "Touch Me" sees Cathy Dennis' late '80s pop tune reduced to a ferociously funky guitar and cowbell workout.

Review: NY disco from Japan via England... Max Essa continues to rule the disco roots in the far east, and he does so with a highly distinctive yet super authentic sound that digs deep into the roots while looking into the future. At once dreamy, Balearic and glamorous, "Runnin' Out Of Night" is coated with crystalline pianos and wafty pads before we drop into a slick, thick guitar and bass groove. For added measure File Under Disco have commissioned two remixes; JKriv gets spacy and dubby on "Love Beyond" while Ray Mang adds a little jazz-flecked perk to "Runnin' Out Of Night". The only thing you'll be running out of is time to play all three in one set.

Review: All re-edit labels have their own twist on things and Handshakes' thing is classic funk. After messing around with singles for a while, they've bitten the bullet and delivered a long player. It's been worth the wait too as there's a whopping 19 tracks to choose from featuring a mix of names both familiar and new. Highlights include the touchy-feely throb of "Groove On (IMFROMULL edit)", the grey leather slip on electro-funk of "You Wanna Get Up (Dr Packer Funkout)" and the raw, slap-bass heaven of Jam Master's "Party Lights".

Review: Portugal's Alkalino is an expert juggler, always keeping his original productions up in the air alongside his edits. Here though he's firmly plumped for the latter, delivering a whopping 11 scalpel jobs for our listening pleasure. As expected the LP spans everything from vintage disco, cosmic funk and house. Highlights include the slinky, spacey arpeggiated pulser "Band Jive", the raw electro-funk stomper "Suspicious Mind" and the Gallic-tinged Euro/Italo disco seducer, "Je Flash".

from $1.49
Review: It's been an impressive debut year from Australian producer Greg Packer, whose re-edits and remixes under the Dr Packer alias have won him a legion of fans around the world. Here, he makes his Hotbox Boogie debut with a quartet of floor-friendly, house-focused reworks of disco and boogie classics. David Joseph's Paradise Garage classic "You Can't Hide You Love" gets a thickset, 21st century makeover on "Can't Hide", while a familiar talkbox-boasting electroboogie cut gets straightened out and toughened up on "Jam Right". Best of all, though, is "I Love Sunshine", a singalong deep house take on Maze's "Joy & Pain" which utilises elements from both the original and live versions of the track.

Review: To celebrate the first 10 years of his occasional Replay Records re-edit series, DJ Friction has decided to collect together some of his finest re-edits for the imprints under the Frico moniker. There's naturally much to enjoy, from brilliant '80s NYC style re-dubs of D-Train's "Keep On" and Exodus's "Together Forever" (the latter stretched out to a trippy 13 minutes), to party-friendly cuts of soul and funk classics from Spanky Wilson (the superbly choppy "Sunshine of Your Love") and Peggy Lee (a riotous rework of her classic over of Otis Redding classic "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay"). Friction is, unsurprisingly, reverential to the source material while adding just enough fancy effects and production tricks to emphasize each track's dancefloor potential.

Review: With sunshine bathing much of Britain, it seems a fitting time for the Editorial label to celebrate the arrival of summer. Heat WAVs, their latest split EP, oozes sun-kissed warmth. Voodoo Whiskey kicks things off with the hazy Balearic deep house bliss of "Desert Stroll", before "Joutro Mundo" drops some compressed disco edit action in the shape of the rather lovely "Roller Shake". Woodhead and Hakatone continue the celebratory feel with a pair of righteous disco-funk bumpers (the superb "Party Down Tonight" and "Sugarbaby" respectively), before Tikki draws an excellent EP to a close with "The Crooner", a curious but effective combination of easy listening vocals and swinging house grooves.

Review: Having previously appeared on a dizzying number of split EPs from the Chopshop and Editorial labels (amongst others), Ed Wizard & Disco Double Dee are finally given a release they can call their own. The Chop 40 (we sniggered, at least) is typical of their output to date, flitting between loopy, filter-heavy takes on sumptuous soul and disco jams (see the baggy house grooves and classic horns of "Push Da Groove" and slap bass-boasting "Bounce & Shake"), straight-up funk edits (the riotous "Sho'nuff") and slower excursions. It's the latter that arguably stand out here, with the string-laden sweetness of "Dance 2 Da Musique" and decidedly Balearic "Pinky" both impressing.

Review: Brooklyn disco-funkers Midnight Magic tore a hole in the scene in late 2013 with their debut album Midnight Creepers. Here we find Permanent Vacation doing what they do best; recruiting some of the game's finest producers to write their own subverted footnotes on an already killer narrative. Highlights include Blase's angular off-beat bleep serenade that eventually develops into a raw emotional meltdown on "Red Rain", the almost human-like heavy breathing synths of Mano Le Tough's take on "Drop Me A Line" and any one of the takes of the band's biggest hit to date "Beam Me Up". As ever with Permanent Vacation, there's some serious magic in the mix right here.

Review: Tony Beardsley's unsigned productions caught the ear of a number of well-regarded DJs, including Daniel Avery and Craig Bratley. The latter decided to take a punt on signing the producer, releasing this debut EP on his Magic Feet imprint. "Return of the Oscillator" is quietly impressive; combining post-EBM and new-beat elements with the kind of midtempo chug and nu-Balearic flourishes for which Bratley's label has become so renowned. The Hardway Brothers provide the obligatory remix, delivering a gnarled techno revision with plenty of quietly twisted electronics and just a whisper of acid. "Galactic", which features additional production from Hardway Brothers man Sean Johnston, dips the tempo for additional hazy Balearic flavour.

Review: Berlin-based Norwegian producer Henning Severud is in the midst of a fine run of releases as Telephones right now with his debut on Running Back proving to be one of the label's most loved platters in some time (this is no mean feat it should be said). His latest appearance is on Paramida's Love On The Rocks imprint, itself a label that cant help but impress so far this year and Lotusland makes for a fine addition. Telephones offers up Sunset and Sunrise versions of the track and both feature sumptuous usage of melodies and early '90s NYC flavour embellished with a hint of uplifting European euphoria. It's likely you'll be hearing both versions for as long as the sun keeps shining this summer and they are complemented by remixes from Discodromo and Gatto Fritto with the latter a quite mind bending Electro Boogie workout.

Review: Joey Negro's Soul Of Disco series has always been a great source of forgotten disco gems for those who like their dance music rich, stringy and soulful. This third two-disc selection from the Z Records boss is no different. For disco diggers, there's plenty to enjoy, be it the rich, horn-drenched instrumental grooves of Board Of Directors' "Hanging Tough", the raw, clavinet groove of Loi's "Body Contact" or the wobbly synth bass and perfect percussion of Phenomenal's "One Two Three". With a smattering of bonus re-edits from Joey Negro himself for those who like their grooves a bit more DJ-friendly, The Soul Of Disco 3 is nigh on essential.

Kleeer - "Winners" (DJ Vas rework) - (6:05) 117 BPM
from $1.49
Review: DJ Vas, a former member of 1990s French house outfit Kojak, returns to action with a slinky selection of floor-friendly re-edits. First up, early Cameo jam "C To The Funk" gets a rolling, undulating rework - all looped grooves, parping horns, urgent vocals and '70s funk attitude. Vas then adds a little house swing to Joe Bataan's clav-heavy "Call My Name", stripping out most of the vocals to emphasize the original's killer groove. The un-credited "One Love" is a wide-eyed chunk of sensual sweetness, while Kleeer's "Winners" gets turned into an inspired slab of soaring jazz-funk goodness. Impressive stuff.

Red Runner EP by Wayne Snow on Tartelet Germany Cue Track
Red Runner (Session Victim remix) - (7:43) 125 BPM
from $1.49
Review: This is a special EP because it marks the first results of the recent collaboration between Parisian Afro-beat label, Comet, and Danish deep house imprint, Tartelet. The music reflects this unique fusion by pairing the remarkable vocals of Nigerian-born songwriter Wayne Snow to soulful house. It's a sublime release with the Metro Area-esque soulful punk-funk-disco house of "Red Runner" leading the charge. Remixes come courtesy of Glenn Astro & INMYRMIND (raw, off kilter house) and Session Victim (trance-ish prog euphoria). "Under The Moon", however, is a deep and eerie skewed-funk grind.

Review: Rising Irish star Jay Ru recently smash it with City Vibes on Midnight Riot. Now he brings the heat once more with the brilliantly melodramatic Boney M disco rework "It's Cool", the deep house and soul vibes of "(Oh Baby) Sexy Sexy", the new-wave-funk-meet-R&B of "Enjoy Yourself" and "Edit Life" - a cheeky rejig of Prince's glorious '80s hit, Pop Life.

Use 2 Hold Me & Let Me Be The One by Alena on ISM Cue Track
Let Me Be The One (Yam Who? remix) - (5:40) 114 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Alena is a London boogie singer who has found a kindred creative spirit in ISM labelboss Yam Who?. Following the success of Changes, they're back with more original material, with "U Used To Hold Me" being a beautifully authentic slice of mid '80s Brit-synth-funk: crisp, digital and very, very catchy. Inkswel mischievously warps the tune into twisted dysfunctional punk-funk, but '80s Child goes a bit more commercial with his take on the already poppy "Let Me The One".

We Don't Know EP by DJ Nori on BubbleTease Communications Cue Track
80's Drugs - (5:45) 123 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Bubbletease Communications' releases are defiantly infrequent, reflecting boss man Maurice Fulton's desire to only release personal projects and those he's somehow had a hand in. Given Fulton's track record, this approach guarantees a high quality threshold; in truth, Bubbletease releases are rarely less than excellent. This four-tracker from Tokyo-based DJ Nori, co-produced by Fulton, is predictably impressive. There's a touch of melancholic, acid-flecked stargazing in the shape of "Spaceg" (all heady synth melodies, fuzzy bass and 808 cowbells), some out-there, beatless space calypso (the unwieldy "We Don't Know"), and a mighty chunk of Syclops-ish wonk-jack ("80s Drugs"). Oh, and a moody, Detroit-influenced Fulton remix of "Happy Sunday" that breaks into a space disco jam near the end.

Mandy (Mudds extended dub mix) - (6:23) 100 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: With Bison's long-awaited debut album, Travellers, due to drop in September, band-member Mudd delivers a couple of particularly sleazy extended versions of 2011 7" single "Mandy". The original, which was recorded at Can's legendary Innerspace Studio, was arguably a little too short. Here, the Claremont 56 chief stretches it out impressively, allowing the dubbed-out bassline, cosmic guitars and Holgar Czukay's eccentric, half whispered vocal room to breathe. The results, particularly on the atmospheric dub, are little less than mesmerizing. While the Dub is impressive, the vocal version - complete with Czukay's bizarre ramblings - is probably our pick.

On The Upside (High Drummer edit) - (6:52) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Four quintessential examples of editing finesse as newcomer Wonkar explores his extensive soul and boogie collection. With full emphasis squared on the slinky basslines, slower tempos and languishing grooves, each cut is a shimmering highlight in itself. He's also done shown some sensitivity to the art of digging without going too obscure. Notable moments include the stuttering '80s drum-heavy repurpose of Xena's "On The Upside" and the chubbed up low-end of Starpoint's "Last Night". There's also some cheeky Gap Band references buried deep in this killer EP too. Get this upside your head as soon as possible!

Review: Here's the pitch: ask six of Chicago's finest exponents of bumping house and pitched down disco cuts to contribute some of their finest works, blend them all together and present in the appropriate space of a bumper digital EP. What's the end product? The rather hot looking Chicago Service from the Amsterdam label Lumberjacks in Hell which features a merry cast of the city's finest in Gene Hunt, Rahaan, Jamie 3:26, Cratebug, Hugo H and Boogie Nite across seven tracks.

Review: The Giant Cuts crew have been keeping the boogie side of the disco fire burning with their Disco Boogie Classics series for over a year now, and on this essential release they reach their fifth volume. Once again the source material is a closely guarded secret, but whether it's the cowbell-heavy, Rhodes-led funk of "Dance (Move Ya Body)", the smooth licks and sweltering '80s production of "Jump To The Edit", the party starting vocal on "Feel It" or the deep down disco sleaze of standout track "Limited Search", there's something here for everyone to get their own disco dancefloors bumping.

Review: London's Horse Meat Disco club really has beaten all comers in the -disco stakes: if a decade of packed parties, international DJ gigs and bringing the disco sleaze to Rinse FM isn't enough, they now deliver their fourth(!) compilation for Strut Records. James Hillard, Jim Stanton, Luke Howard and Severino all share the selection of a 16-strong tracklist, which also appears in mixed form too. Highlights include the quirky Chaka Khan-esque "Ain't No Way" by Opal, the sumptuous luxury vibes of "Stop" by Valerie Allington and the legendary low-slung bass-fest "Barah" by Cleavage. Full marks again, how do they do it?!

Review: Palov & Panama Cardoon launched Greek label Carnibal in 2012 and have been successfully 'shuffling the traditional sounds with the modern beats' ever since. Here on their 10th release they shift focus from the electro-swing and hip-hop approach of previous transmissions, concentrating on the sounds of Latin America instead. It's a tropical and topical romp too, with highlights including the hypnotic vintage cumbia haze of DJ Inko's "La Cadencia", the fizzing electro reggaeton of Vida G's "Cumbida" and the skewed disco-funk of "Orere" by Umoja.

Review: Nu-disco may be on the wane a little, but thankfully there a still a few acts capable of delivering deliciously dreamy and floor-friendly electronic disco jams. German duo Satin Jackets is one of those acts. This three-tracker for Belgium's Eskimo Recordings is full of enveloping chords, shuffling grooves and bright-eyed melodies. Opener "Sunrise In Paradise" sounds like classic Aeroplane with a dash of hazy, horizontal pop thrown in, while "Galee Royale" is so effortlessly sun-kissed that you want to grab your sunnies and head for the beach. Closer "Fall Apart", meanwhile, is almost thrillingly dreamy, with Patrick Barber's guitar and vocal drifting from the speakers as if it was a plastic bag caught in a humid summer breeze.
