Review: Mysterious SoundCloud sensation Dr Packer returns with the follow-up to his popular Surgery Edits EP. His style - taking classic and little known disco, boogie and '80s soul jams and giving them a smooth, dubby deep house makeover - is undeniably attractive, and sympathetic enough to the original material to get the crate-diggers onside. There's plenty to excite among the six tracks showcased here, from the synth-bass laden sweetness of "Gimme Your Loving" and deep, soulful disco-house outing "2 The Bank", to the slap bass-boasting headiness of "Snap Shot" - all delay-laden vocal hits and hazy guitar solos - and wide-eyed disco release of "Running", whose source material should be familiar to all but the most inexperienced disco DJs.

Review: Riding high on the buzz he has generated in the last twelve months, Max Graef delivers this album to Tartelet as a man very much in demand. His style, fuelled on the foundations of sampling funk and soul to a brilliantly modern end, has more space to breathe on this LP, but still the fundamentals remain. "Itzehoe" struts on a lazy jazzed-out sizzle of drums and beautiful Rhodes notes while "Tamboule Fudgefunk" punches its way through woozy synth work and a righteous beat and "Drums Of Death" struts on a perfect disco groove replete with live instrumentation, but there's a wealth of other tempos and styles all shot through with the homespun jazz charm that Graef has made his own of late.

from $1.49
Review: If anyone can fuse Q-Tip, Busta and Sister Sledge, it's the Disco Cakes head honchos Defkline and Red Polo. In fact their baking is so sweet they've cooked up two versions; a funk-fuelled disco jam and a swaggering, breakbeat-heavy hip-hop version. Naturally both cuts are so tasty your dancefloor will be munching out of the palm of your hand. Further on we're punched with a bass-battered nu-funk version of Joan Jett's "I Love Rock N Roll" and sweet-talked by the sexy dancehall version of early 90s hip-hop crew K7 on "Come Baby Come". Yummy.

Weekend Lover (Luvless remix) - (6:31) 115 BPM
from $1.49
Review: After successfully releasing the debut of EGYPTIAN NIPPLES (duo act formed by Massimiliano Pagliara and Jules Etienne) with the 5 track EP "BACK BUT HALF" Apersonal Music now reveals the remix pack for the mini-album, commissioning 4 experienced producers seeking to maintain the high quality and old school vibe of the original tracks. German producer Lauer maintains the old school US vibe of "Back But Half", while Jay Shepheard gives a clubby dancefloor twist to the electro gem "Bottle Of Mine". Session Victim (Retreat / Delusions Of Grandeur) wisely understood the coastal vibe of the original EP (and album cover) by remixing "L.A. Melody" towards a Caribbean taste with a Berlin vibe. Last but not least, Luvless (Rose Records / Razor N Tape) takes "Weekend Lover" and transformes it into a dreamy sound blaster for that special moment in your DJ set. Someone said after party?

from $1.49
Review: Every now and then we get a faint signal from this Beaten Space Probe, lost in the depths of the nebulous disco cosmos. It usually crackles through on our radio about once a year and is unanimously greeted with whoops of delight and much dancing on our analogue space consoles. This missive contains nine galaxian edits, presumably all peak time bangers on the hottest alien dancefloors. Highlights include the elasticated bass frenzy of "Double Lines", the Kool & The Gang redux "Don't Wanna Dance" and Fingerman's electro-boogie blaster, "Like 2 Baby". Far out!

After Party People - (5:23) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Ever since JD Twitch rebooted Optimo Music, it's been the irregular transmissions from Glasgow act Golden Teacher that has hit the spot each and every time. The amalgamation of two diverse bands from the city -noise punk outfit Ultimate Thrush and analogue house duo Silk Cut, Golden Teacher first emerged on Optimo Music early last year with a pretty apt description of sounding like "Arthur Russell's Dinosaur L jamming with Bobby O, K Alexi Shelby, Liaisons Dangereuses and Imagination, with some voodoo drummers and Sly & Robbie". Steadily building up a reputation for some riotous live performances, Golden Teacher are a class above because they manage to distill this energy into their recorded output too. Party People features three such examples, with A-side cut "Love" the kind of production that sufferers of LCD Soundsystem withdrawal will embrace and cherish for years to come.

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: Paper Recordings' reputation precedes them in house circles. Now however, they've bitten the bullet and dived into the deep end of the disco pool with this compilation (on sub label Paper Disco) of current nu-disco producers and edit heroes. It's a brave comp that tackles every interpretation of disco, including 2 Billion Beats' deep '80s synth groover "See Us Through", Richard Seabourne's bizarre funk-goes-doomy 303 workout "This Is Acid" and Mezman's bass heavy, dream-pad odyssey. We're looking forward to plenty more disco thrills from this new stable!

Review: With early support from Greg Wilson, Fingerman and Yam Who? it's a pretty good bet that this new EP from Surrey's The Twisted Soul Collective is going places. "Holy Hustler" kicks thing off with a slow deep disco throb before introducing some retro hip-house samples. Things go up a gear with the golden voiced euphoria of Dusty Springfield on "Dusty Love", before we are drawn into hypnotic Latin groove of the sax brandishing "BB Man". Things wrap up with a nightcap in the form of frisky cocktail house number "Magic Chant".

Review: Chopshop boss DJ Butcher has never been afraid to share the wealth and this latest is release is no different, featuring four different producers with four different tunes. Butcher bravely steps up with the Eminem-meets-70s soul "Slim Shaddy", Ill Advised goes loop-crazy for the celestial funk joy of "Love Is What We Need" and Voodoo Whiskey goes for the bass twang jugular with "Suck My Sausage". Finally the curtain closes with the tight and sophisticated disco-funk inferno that is "Drama Queen". Hot stuff!

Review: Thwack! That's the sound of those rubber gloves being smacked on in preparation for the procedure that's about to commence. Don't worry though, it's not a cavity search, the mysterious Dr Packer is about to apply his precision scalpel skills to some vintage sounds in an operation bound to make these oldies seem younger, fresher, sexier, groovier. There are four incisions here, each as fine as the last. Highlights include the Hall & Oates goes Balearic roller "Want My Soul", the warm Italo goodness of "Smiling" and the swishy Loveboat-isms of "Give It All You Got".

Feeling Good by DeejayKul on Basic Fingers Cue Track
Feeling Good (Classic Love Deep mix) - (6:56) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Edit fiends Basic Fingers usually reserve their tastiest material for the occasionally used Gold Finger offshoot. That's arguably the case here, as Deejaykul delivers a sumptuously deep and soulful house interpretation of the much-played "Feeling Good" (think Nina Simone, though this version has a delicious male vocal). The A-side DeejayKul meets Soultechnic Deepa mix is particularly potent, with intricate Latin percussion, smooth pads and sensual vocal riding an effortlessly sunny groove. There's a bit more vintage US garage on the other track, where the Classic Love Deep mix laces soft-focus chords and classic organs over a typically skippy groove. Impeccable stuff, all told.

Mmmm?. Tiger Can You Switch Over To The Golf Channel Please (5 Under Par edit) - (4:12) 115 BPM
from $1.49
Review: There's something pleasing about the no-nonsense approach of the Killer Funk Disco crew. Their edits cut straight to the chase, chopping, looping and tweaking the key passages - percussive breaks, grooves and choruses, mainly - of their excellent source material. They're in fine form on this fifth volume in the series, which originally dropped on vinyl a few years back. Variously you'll find a perfectly pitched re-cut of a classic dubwise cover of "Staying Alive" ("Sly & Robbie Disco"), horn-totin', hands-in-the-air disco-funk ("Rescue The Edit"), string-laden low-slung disco ("Is That A Firecracker In Your Pocket Harvey...") and a slap-bass sporting disco singalong ("Mmm, Tiger..."). All killer, no filler.

Review: With Late Night Tuff Guy, Get Down Edits, Disco Tech and Fingerman all involved, there's plenty of scalpel-wielding talent on show on this second compilation from the mysterious Editors Kutz imprint. Predictably, there's plenty to get excited about, from the head-nodding anthemic soul bump of Disco Tech's "You & I (edit)", and Get Down Edits' humid disco stomper "Veliero", to the disco-house-meets-funk heaviness of Dynamicron's "Phonkimental (Edit)" and Copycat's bongo-riffic rework of stone cold disco classic "Love Sensation". Most interesting, though, is Fingerman's curious but rather fine "Sounds Good To Me (Up Till Late Edit)", a sparkling reimagining of a familiar rock staple.

Review: Parisian DJ Moar seems to be enjoying his recent solo forays so much that it's amazing that he still finds time to release stuff with his band Venice Beach too (but somehow he does). Here he presents four more sweaty, slap-bassy, late night pelvis grinders, the most of obvious of which "Disco Jazzers Delight" takes the overly familiar ("Rappers' Delight") and rearranges it into something completely fresh and new. Elsewhere the source material is less obvious but equally as good and funky with the clean, tight and linear '80s soul grooves of the title track, "Funky Execution" being a real highlight.

Review: Colorado-based producer Funk Hunk has already built up quite a following on SoundCloud for his "buff" re-edits of '80s boogie and disco classics. Here, he makes his commercial debut on the amusingly titled Nude_isco label with four cheeky scalpel jobs. There's a sensual feel about his loopy, immersive re-cut of Billy Griffin's '80s soul jam "Serious", while Junior's "Not Tonight" gets impressively chopped and reworked in an '80s edit style. His rework of Barbara Fowler's stone cold classic "Come & Get My Loving" expertly emphasizes the original's excellent synths and singalong chorus, before he gets all Tiger & Woods (with a touch more vocal and extra filters) on Cheryl Lynn's long-forgotten 1981 track "I'm On Fire".

Review: Editorial's policy of giving their split EPs of edits and reworks a distinctive theme has always been a bit of a winner. Here, they return to the world of slo-mo, soul-flecked edits, with a quintet of sumptuous scalpel works for our delectation. 78 Edits impresses with the winding sax, horizontal bump and head-nodding grooves of "Meet Patti", while DJ Moar offers up a slinky, electric bass-driven ride into slow disco-house territory in the shape of the Rhodes-laden "King Bob". Hot Box and P-Sol both deliver heavily compressed, filter-sporting toe-tappers for those warm-up moments where you just want to get locked into the groove, while Jona Saucedo brilliantly combines dubbed-out modern soul vocals with an attractive loop from Fonda Rae's boogie classic "Touch Me".

Review: What more can we possibly say about nu-disco producer Valique and his two-year bootleg/edit/mash-up blitzkreig that we haven't already said? Listening back over these 31 offerings it becomes apparent that this is simply the soundtrack to one seriously mighty party. There are simply just so many dancing-on-tables moments here (we'll let him away with some of the shockers) including the grooved up DM cover "Personal Jesus" by Johnny Cash, the surreal, intoxicating deep disco take on Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" and the dreamy paradise melodies of "Still You". Here's to the next couple of years!

Review: Stafford-based producer Dave Gerrard specializes in creating cut-and-paste tracks that blend the best elements of familiar disco, funk, boogie and hip-hop jams. What really marks him out, though, is the classy way that he does it. Check out the way he shifts between basslines, grooves and samples on the boogie-tinged house jam "What We Gonna Do Here" (inspired, if that's the word, by Midnight Express's "Danger Zone") or the way he breathes new life into the Average White Band on the thrilling "Drop The Pieces". There's also a riotous tribute to the giants of P-Funk on "Rip The Funk", arguably the EP's strongest moment.

from $1.49
Review: Emotional Especial return with a release from Romanian duo Khidja that comes packing some excellent remixes from senor Fairplay and Juju & Jordash! Brought to the attention of EE thanks to Hardway Brother Sean Johnston, who returned from a Bucharest DJ gig singing the praises of two young DJs, Khidja's productions are as impressive as their selections on the evidence here. "Mustafa" is more immediate with shuffle percussion, swirling sirens and acid bubbles leading to a perfect horn break. In the hands of Mr Fairplay, the track takes on anthemic qualities; the stabbing bass and build have allegedly seen howls of appreciation when it's dropped at A Love From Outer Space. "Abdul" finds Khidja in a more calming mood reminiscent of Art of Noise, though the kick and bass ensure there is plenty of rhythmic emphasis, whilst the Juju & Jordash remix edges towards a Balearic digidub vibe.

Review: Safe can be London slang for 'cool', or like on this comp's sleeve, it can mean solid (which might actually also be slang for 'cool') like an actual safe. Either which way, the re-edits here are cool. There are four bangers to choose from - all party funk with added 'I swear I know this' raps, all beefed up and filtered into next week. Guaranteed to leave the dancefloor dribbling, drooling and thoroughly loving it.

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: After a brief hiatus Mangled returns in with some Ray Mang versions of a song from Italian singer Mari (Marina Conti). Mari's album 'Gentle Beauty' produced together with singer songwriter Mozez (of Zero 7 fame) was released back in 2012 on Numen Records. Ray Mang took a shine to the second single 'Free' taking the Vocals and piano from the original and re-crafting it into a stellar piece of modern euphoric disco.

from $1.49
Review: E Versions is a brand new edit-focused offshoot of Merc, seemingly allowing label boss Mark E an outlet for some of his unreleased reworks. Given the title, the spotters out there might easily guess what the source material for "Kahn" is, and it immediately calls to mind all those great reworks the Midlands-based producer did for Jiscomusic, Running Back and Golf Channel in the pre-disco edit flood era. It's complemented by "Mingo" which is much more indicative of the brand of hypnotic machine music Mark E is currently specialising in, and will appeal to fans of drums!!!

Review: It's three years since Craig Smith and Graeme Clark impressed with One Night In The Borough, a landmark album that epitomized all that was good about the cut-and-paste, disco-sampling deep house scene of the time. This sophomore set offers more of the same, delivering tracks that ride a range of tempos in their trademark deep, loopy, hypnotic and pleasingly baggy style. While there are plenty of surprisingly supple, heavily electronic uptempo cuts on offer (see "Feel", the disco rush of "In Your Arms" and the classic, Frankie Knuckles-ish US house of "Read My Mind"), they're still at their best when operating at a slower tempo, as the deliciously jazzy "Walk Away" and sensual throb of "Through The Night" neatly prove.

Review: We've all heard of suspension of disbelief, right? Well, on "Disco Show" Boogie Culture is all about the suspension of disco-belief: the suspension of those brief grooves of pleasure tucked deep within a good disco tune, but looped and teased out forever. Meanwhile on "The Bob Groove" we learn the joys of heavy breath beat and on "Live With It" we visit the southern land of soulful diva funk. Finally things are wrapped up with the warm and luxuriant "Wind & Fire". Roll up, roll up! Get your quality edits here!

Played by: Jamie Fatneck
Review: Chopshop's Undercover Operations imprint has tended to explore floor-friendly disco rubs and house dubs. However for this newie by Fatneck, the source material for these edits journey into poppier territory: "Sandy Haired Seppaku" takes the clenched-buttock cocaine-funk of Inxs' Suicide Blonde and loops it until you find yourself dancing on tables in some bar or other. Elsewhere the mighty Prince gets worked over twice: first on the sped up electro-pop of Controversy ("Purple Kerfuffle") and Lets Work which gets teased out into the eight minute long elastic funk jam "Let's Twerk".

Review: Some records are funky, some are really funky and then some are so funky that they actually become 'fonkeh'. For Diggin Deeper, KS French has gone 'fonkier', delivering four sumptuously plump disco nuggets: the loopy backbeat 'n' keys driven "The Groove", the Chic-getting-lasered diva soul of "Dancin' With My Love", the celebratory clap-a-long "True Funk Affair" and finally, the tight 'n' sassy funk of "They Say Nothin".

Review: The Australian edit machine known across the globe as Late Night Tuff Guy offers up two sublime dancefloor weapons from his armoury for the second in his series of limited, hand stamped Tuff Cuts 12"s - here available digitally. "Ain't Noboby" from Rufus and Chaka Khan is a classic, and has been subjected to numerous edits and reworks over the years; this version from Late Night Tuff Guy belongs amongst the better ones, looping and extending the original and laying it over his trademark crunchy slo mo beats. On "Reality", the "Back To Life" accapella is joyously diced and laid down over a glistening disco production from the Nile Rogers and Bernie Edwards discography.

from $1.49
Review: Italy may not be the first place that springs to mind when someone mentions far-out psychedelic rock, but Bologna's LTJ Experience is all about surprises. Here, on "Walking Groove" he delivers almost ten minutes of a slow-building psyche-funk jam which develops from a rolling cowbell-led pulse to a fully (consciously) expanded duel between wah-wah guitar and organ. What's the Italian for 'groovy'?

from $1.49
Review: Earlier this year, Daniele Baldelli released Back To My Funky Side, the follow-up to his funk and soul inspired 2005 full-length My Funky Side. On this partner album, LP highlights - including the riotous, horn-heavy funk jam "Funk Me Again" - are joined by a plethora of largely impressive remixes. There's a stunningly dense and dubbed-out of version of "Fountainebleau" from the Idjut Boys, a smooth and groovy, near Balearic take on "A Good Day" from DJ Rocca, and a jaunty Italo-meets-classic disco tweak of "Mellow Game" by Greg Wilson and Derek Kaye. Best of all, though, is Eric Duncan's version of "Funk Me Again", which turns the original into a driving slab of heavy dub disco with clavs aplenty.

This guy knows how to get the groove on and "Save Me" is one of those tunes that'll send your panties in a twist from the first bar. Title track, "Kick This Thing" is a certified boogie tool, whilst The Owl's remix goes into deeper mode and brings out the percussion further. "Never Knew" is just the cherry on top of the cake - beats, bass and funk.

Review: Munich-based Portugese producer Alkalino has earned himself a reputation as one of the most reliable re-editors around. Here, he delivers four more Heavy Cuts for disco-minded house producers, and disco heads that like it heavy. There are some familiar grooves on show - "An Angel" delivers a sturdy, locked-in 4/4 version of all-time classic "Angel In My Pocket", while "Cosmic Dust" brilliantly works a guitar-heavy, tried-and-tested disco groove - but also some reworks of lesser-known gems. Of these, it's probably the strings-and-clav-laden "Wonderful Man" that hits home hardest, though the spiraling jazz-funk stomper "Air" isn't far behind.

Over the five tracks supplied here, the overriding vibe is all about lounging in a neon-lit Miami Vice-era nightclub, albeit one more favoured by Tubbs than Crockett. Shimmering digital synth funk is the name of the game and it's a joy to behold, with the best largely instrumental bits of anonymous mid '80s electro-soul edited and looped into a deliriously glamorous haze. Slick.

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: KS French spreads the love for his latest French Kiss release - gathering an all-star cast of re-edit dons to share the load over these six tracks. Never just content with straightforward editing, French Kiss releases always add extra production techniques to the loops, creating something fresh in the process. Highlights here include KS French's own "Money We Make It" which cleverly incorporates a Marvin Gaye vocal into a deep funk shuffle, the loopy, phased guitar heaven of P Sol's "Feel Me Baby" and the tough, stomping warped disco house of "Another Wish" by DJ Moar. C'est bon!

Review: Midnight Riot, the re-edit label run by Yam Who, has returned with yet another bumper-packed installment of their all-conquering eponymous compilation series. At this stage, with all other comers demolished in their wake, each release now just seems like pure gloating on Yam Who's account, but really, with such sizzling corkers as the deliriously awesome "Being In Love" by Late Night Tuff Guy, the '80s clap-a-thon "Hot" and the shimmying freestyle of "26th St", who can blame him?

Heart For Rent (Daniel Solar remix) - (7:36) 120 BPM
from $1.49
Review: London-based Death From The Balcony (AKA producers Mark Caramelli and Paul Hargreaves) is a good signing for Daniel Solar's Dikso label. Their style - fluid, melodic, deep and optimistic, with gentle hints of disco and boogie amongst the deep house rhythms - perfectly matches Dikso's atmospheric approach. There's more than a hint of late night soul about the chunky "Speak On The Subject", whose vintage US house grooves are peppered with hazy samples and twinkling pianos. "Make A Move", with its dreamy chords and Balearic melodies, is an altogether more warming affair, while "Heart for Rent" is simultaneously melancholic and deliciously upbeat. Daniel Solar remixes the latter track, adding some bouncy nu-disco flavour whilst retaining the original's picturesque qualities.

Review: For their latest foray into the world of house-friendly disco re-edits, the We Mean Disco crew have turned to Italian newcomers Blaxxsoul and Max 909. There's plenty to enjoy, from the head-nodding, looped-up grooves of the decidedly sweet Average White Band cut-up "Wasn't Your Friends" and baggy, synth-laden disco-funk grooves of "Party No Party", to the straight-up party funk of "Back To Old" and sensual bump of Barry White rework "Never Ever Gonna Give You Up". Best of all, though, is "City Lights (Pittbull Version)", an 11-minute, filter-laden re-cut of William Pitt's Balearic disco classic in a loopy midtempo disco-house style.

from $1.49
Review: If you're looking for a bit of variety and a high quality threshold, this EP from the ever-reliable Legendary 1979 Orchestra should be right up your alley. Contrast, for example, the liquid, Afro-tinged deep house smoothness of "Gets Deep", with the slap bass-propelled deep disco of "Amsterdam Zest", or the rubbery Balearic-meets-electrofunk-meets-deep house groove of "Love is Everywhere". Best of all, though, is the Juno exclusive track "Big Man Dub", a delay-laden, organ-sporting chunk of bounciness that boasts a terrific vocal breakdown, subtle synth-strings and some decidedly bold synth riffs. Like the rest of the EP, it's perfectly pitched.

Wheel - (5:39) 122 BPM

Review: With just the one cheekily titled release to his name, Matt Karmil may not be a name familiar to all, but the rising UK producer is one that you are likely to spot with increasing regularity as 2014 rolls on. Late next month, Karmil will grace the Popnoname label with a debut album and here he becomes the first UK correspondent on Tim Sweeney's ever prosperous Beats In Space label. Spend some time with the two tracks on So You Say and you'll wonder why you hadn't heard the name Matt Karmil before, as both are richly detailed house jams with the capacity to scoop up dancefloors and take them somewhere else entirely.

"Why Wait For Tomorrow" is teased out into up to 11 minutes of vintage disco ecstasy (in over three different mixes!) by Al Kent. "Definition Of Luv" also gets some super camp New York housey lovin' from Sean McCabe.

Review: French Kiss main man KS French is making the most of this current purple patch by delivering another sizzling EP hot on the heels of the last one. This time he's braved up and tackled a few classics - ditching the epic intro to Willie Hutch's mighty "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" whilst respectfully housing it up and James Brown's "Payback" gets a nice breaky twist. Art imitates life on the shuffle-funk of "Make Me Fonkeh" (we dubbed his music 'fonkeh' a while back) and things wrap up will the emotional phased basser "Just Want You".

Review: If you pine for that mid '80s wine bar funk vibe to return, you're in luck - it's here and it's brought the disco flute with it. Yep, "Your Love" is all basslines smoother than Galaxy, thin and tight guitar licks, shimmering chords and did we mention the flute? Oh we did? Well that too. Meanwhile "La Musique" takes us on a Real Thing-style trip but deeper, housier and more French... and all the better for it!
