Review: Stafford's Dave Gerrard has been around for over 30 years so you can trust the DJ on this one. He's back on his usual stomping ground for more disco goodies on DJ Butcher's Chopshop out of Athens, Greece. 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!

Highlight's on here not limited to Princess' smooth ergonomics displayed on the re-splice of the Prince classic "Sexy Dancer", Feel The Vibe's great cover of "Get Down Tonight" looped for your pleasure by Kc/Sub and they save the best for last with Mr Faded/Blackhead's (aka McFadden & Whitehead's) 1979 classic "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now". They are all 're-re-edited' by the way: by none other than Valique himself. Trust the DJ!

Review: The Rev's back! Parisian edit magician serves up four revised soul excursions for modern audiences to experience the second time around and in true style. On the first side he takes the knife to a couple of Gladys Knight classics, namely the feel-good "Don't Make Me Run Away" and the uplifting "Love Gives You The Power". On the flip it's George Duke's turn, "Say That You Will" is you all know is a sultry deep soul number for lovers while "Party Down" is definitely for night people; this one is pitched up for optimum dancefloor effectiveness too!

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: 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.

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: Munich-based Alkalino (aka Lino Rodrigues) has been delivering top notch re-edits for years now, so there's no chance of him quitting, despite the title of his new series. We've seen the list of his upcoming releases, and these are certainly not his Last Edits. There are quite a few newbies on here, eight to be precise so there's a lot to choose from. Our favourites happen to be the dreamily seductive disco throb of "Body & Soul", the austere mechanics of New Order redux, "How Do I Feel" and the low slung driving space disco of "We Got It".

Review: Michael The Lion differs from the average re-edit chancer by actually recording extra musical parts for his re-tweaks. Here on his Most Known Edits EP he applies extra guitars, bass, keyboards and percussion to a selection of fairly well known 70s dance tunes. First up the immortal Love Hangover by The Fifth Dimension gets some extra bounce and fizz on "The Hangover", "Know This" sees the raw emotion of the People Choice original gently beefed up and filled out, "Fly Robert" is a chugging boogie locomotive of a tune and "Bo Knows" ends things with a Latin-tinged percussive spectacular.

Review: Given his credentials and track record, it's unsurprising that original disco and boogie artists are willing to let Joey Negro play around with their biggest hits. His first stab at this kind of multi-track remix, 2014's Remixed With Love, was such a success that he's decided to unleash another swathe of revisions over two vinyl double-packs. This edition features some killer reworks, including a sublime, on-point rearrangement of Gwen McRae's "Keep The Fire Burning" and a rolling, dubbed-out version of Grace Jones' "Pull Up To The Bumper" that rivals Larry Levan's classic remix. The veteran producer also successfully turns Pockets' "Come Go With Me" into a classic soulful house rub, and pushes Thelma Houston's "I'm Here Again" further towards disco anthem territory.

Review: Ever since their first releases on 20:20 Vision back in 2005, Art Of Tones have steadily grown into purveyors of fine deep house, and you can rest assured that you'll always receive nothing but quality from them. As of late, they've been more closely associated to London's House Of Disco Records, an imprint onto which they return to herein with three smackers, starting with the disco-laced groove that is "Devil The Difference", a soulful house joint with nothing but vibes spilling from every corner. On the flip, "Boogie With Billy" adopts a similar formula to a more electronic rhythm that recalls material from the mighty 80's imprint SAM, while the 'future dub' of "Devil The Difference" twists the original into a deeper, more heady cut for the deep hours...

Review: KS French and Mr Given Raw are like two peas in a pod. A disco-shaped pod. Here they join forces again, both providing both solo tracks and a joint collaboration too. Label boss KS French plonks a platform show on the dancefloor first with the tight James Brown-sampling funk of "Still On the Case". 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.

The heat doesn't let up yet either with this new multi-artist mini comp. Ed Wizard and Disco Double Dee start proceedings with the uplifting clavinet boogie of "Peoples Groove" and Matt Hughes' "Sunshine" takes what sounds like a subtle O'Jays sample and gives it a laid back disco sheen. Elsewhere The Owl's "Pimp Talk" provides perfect evening cocktails by the pool vibes and Rahaan closes the show with the chic electro-boogie of "Fine Feelings".

Review: For a seventh time, Perth-based scalpel fiddler Dr Packer opens his surgery doors and invites us inside. As usual, his cheery, floor-friendly reworks strike the right balance between contemporary dancefloor chops (beefed-up bottom end, well-placed filters, and so on), and treating the source material with due reverence. Happily, there's not a duffer in sight, and even his reworks of stone cold classics (see Oliver Cheetham tweak "Friday's Enemy", First Choice revision "Love Doctor" and housed-up Evelyn 'Champagne' King stomper "Shame (VIP)") are different enough to be worthwhile additions to your collection. Highlights are plentiful, but check - in particular - the string-laden disco chug of "Ecstasy" and "Nightlife", a thickset '80s boogie rub full of sparkling synthesizers and heavy bass.

Review: Life is just one big weekend to KS French and that means a lot of music is required. Luckily he's more than happy to supply as much party soundtrack as needed. His Super Cuts series has now reached its eighth volume and here again he shares the honour with his old pal Mr Given Raw (who else?). KS takes pole position with the thumping chug-funk of "The Backdoor" and the pumping, hi-hat driven disco anthem "Ain't Nobody". MGR then takes the lead with the tense and percussive "America" and the machine-like raw 70s funk of "Fonkeh Music". The pair then unite for the shimmering disco-boogie jam "All Night Groove".

Review: Situationism is run by a mysterious 'collective of DJs and producers from the five valleys'. Although little is revealed about their identities, we do know that this compilation is their biggest release yet and it boasts the mighty "On It" by Peza. The track's clever fusion of a boogie sample (Starguard's High On The Boogie) and some subtle 303 work has got people talking and dancing already. The quality stays high over the remaining tracks too, highlights including George Kelly's melancholic Italo gem, "Trip to Jupiter", Vampire Disco's moody synth prowler "Orbit" and the chilled cocktail grooves of Alkalino's "Trigger".

Review: Aussie edit maestro Dr Packer enjoyed a productive 2015, delivering top-selling releases for such labels as DiscoDat, Masterworks Music and Hot Digits. Here, he kick-starts 2016 with All Nite, another white-hot collection of tried-and-tested reworks. As usual, there's much to admire, from the piano-heavy, hands-in-the-air goodness of Inner Life re-rub "All Nite Boogie", to the rolling, anthem-like sweetness of "Everlasting", a well-crafted snip of the Whispers' "And The Beat Goes On". In between, you'll find similarly solid versions of Diana Ross ("Call The Doctor") and Cherelle and Alexander O'Neal ("No Love Like Saturday"). The source material may be a little on the well-known side, but the edits are pretty tasty.

Review: Valique is currently neck and neck with Rayko in a furious battle for the title of disco's most prolific re-editor. Here he nudges in front by a nose thanks to another six-track selection of dancefloor-ready reworks. As usual, he adds his magic touch to a range of well loved and lesser-known cuts, kicking off with an undulating, party-hearty extension of David Bowie's "Fame". Stylistically, he keeps things eclectic, variously touching on hazy disco-funk ("Turn That Boogie Loose"), camp disco (the string-drenched, arms-aloft "Going Up"), white boy reggae-pop (a cheery, stretched out rendition of 10CC's "Dreadlock Holiday"), and heavily percussive disco-rock (the subtly house-friendly, filter-rich "You Gave Me Love").

Review: Michael The Lion pops up on the ever-reliable Razor N Tape imprint following high quality outings on Soul Clap and Giant Cuts. This time round, he's following the Kon blueprint of blending edit style rearrangement with the heavyweight swing of house production. He begins with the soulful disco-house throb of "Anytime" - all extended percussion breaks, piano-heavy sweetness and life-affirming vocals - before charging off on a cheeky Italo-disco direction with "The Don". "Get More" is a killer, high octane re-cut of Lorraine Johnson's obscure cover of Teddy Pendergass favourite "The More I Get, The More I Want", while closer "909s and Herb" - a co-production with Sammy Bananas - blends elements from Herb Alpert disco classic "Rise" with all manner of brand new synths, drums and samples.

Review: We all know that Glasgow's Graeme Clark was there from the very beginning of this nu-disco trend, which is now more popular than ever. He is still pumping out some truly wicked jams and this new one entitled "Intimate Connection" on his own Roar Groove imprint is testament to this. For the most part these are pretty functional edits and tools for DJ use, some of them being live edits taken from his Love Will Not Die album tour. Standouts include the dust covered deep house dreaminess of "New Nation" or "Love Will Never Die", the feel-good boogie jam "Isle Of Lucy" and the rusty and vintage b-boy electro jam "Just One Touch".

Review: These retweaked disco gems are solid gold. "Cleer Mind" strips a vintage cut down to locomotive drums, elegant strings and lilting sax refrains, "Love 2 Nite" ups the pace with chic sweeping orchestration, tight guitar licks and plenty of retro Pollard Syndrum hits, and finally the Raw Silk's immortal Do It To The Music lives on in the lovingly updated "Silky Music".

Review: A DJ since the '80s, Argentinian by way of London Fabiolous Barker has appeared previously on Midnight Riot, Masterworks and Funkfusion and presents us with some quality disco edits. "Sticky Party (ReVamp 2016)" is a funky excursion to soul heaven that you'll never forget, while it's back to the disco on "The Boogie" which reworks Uncle Louie's "Full-Tilt Boogie" from 1979. "Into The Disco Scene" is the kind of recycled disco loops that Thomas Bangalter would be proud of while "The Crown" mashes up a few disco nuggets actually, but absolutely to perfection; try and guess which ones... but don't forget to dance!

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: Massimo Vanoni hails from Mantua in the north of Italy and pushes proper disco edits that you'll really dig. "Funky Sensation" while "Wake Up Dead Man" is said to be a working song from a Texas prison recorded in 1965. There's two versions of "I See You" a funky and soulful disco house makeover but "Fingerman's Disco Odyssey Re-edit" is the most authentic sounding one like the original. We could tell you who he sampled here, but you'll soon find out! "For Your Deeper Love" serves up one more loopy soul-funk hoedown for you all.

Review: Given the Peaktime Reworks title, you've probably already worked out that the three tracks here all head straight for the proverbial dancefloor jugular. The emphasis here is on fun, with lead cut "Show Me Love" expertly combining elements of classic material from Escort and Robin S with sizeable new percussion. This theme continues on "Pushing On", which layers Alice Russell's classic vocal from the Quantic Soul Orchestra cut of the same name over one of the largest disco records of all time. As if that wasn't enough sweaty excitement, the Feel Good Alliance tops things off with the stomping disco house of "Teach Me (Peak Time Rework)".

Review: You can always rely on the Midnight Riot label to pick up a party. Seriously they'd get people dancing in a morgue. Here label favourite Ziggy Phunk turns in four sweet and tasty reworks of obscure 80s dance cuts. "Give It To You" is a soft focus helium-voiced disco cut that puts The Bee Gees to shame, "Some Kinda Lover" is nearly seven minutes of tight and sharp 80s electro-soul, "Sneak Preview" is a shiny filtered pop gem that bears more than a passing resemblance to early Madonna, and "Stand Up" is a sped up celebration of guitars and trumpets.

Review: Sexy Parisian deep house: what more can we say? D.KO are the right crew for the job, as we'll explain. Local lad Flabaire has appeared previously on Serie Limitee and Organic Music. "Biblife" is sombre and soulful deep house reminiscent of the emotive style of legends like Pepe Braddock or Schmoove. Paso Music head honcho: Paso, also appears here with the deep and sultry groove of "I Never" which is perfect for the early evening or afterhours alike. Petr Serkin gives the track a pretty decent remix treatment too, retaining the deep funky groove but with some help from some dreamy pads and cowbells which work a treat. Ma Rey's "Quartier Sex" is definitely the fiercest offering on here; tough and thumping peak time house reminiscent of Phil Weeks.

Review: Retro scalpel-wielder Disco Funk Pioneer has now released quite a few of his fine spliced and diced disco re-edits on some key labels (Katakana Edits, Sound Exhibitions) but the one he calls home is Disco Fruit. Here he's back where he belongs and he's in top form too! There are five new jams to sink your teeth into, beginning with the appropriately named "Disco Fun", a classic Kool & The Gang-style clap-along. Further highlights include the tough Afro/hip-hop craziness of "Funk Power" and the dreamy arpeggiated disco of sax odyssey, "Revolving Funk".

Review: File Under Disco's "100% original disco music" remit is refreshing in these days of countless re-edits and sample-heavy nu-disco mash-ups. Their latest salvo comes from London's Oh Yeah, whose trademark sound effortlessly blends live drums, bass, guitars, keys and vocals. "Nothing But The Beat" is a strong debut, sitting somewhere between sharp, Chic-style disco, hazy jazz-funk and early '90s acid jazz. The remix package is notably strong, too, with Crazy P man Hot Toddy delivering a pair of reworks. On both he toughens things up a little and adds a few dub disco flourishes, whilst retaining the band's wonderful instrumentation. His Dub, in particular, is superb.

Review: Charlie Brown Superstar is no stranger to a bit of space boogie, and the Alpaca Edits crew seems like the perfect place for him to socialise in. In fact, "Givin' It Up" is a lovely, laid-back chat-starter, the sort of banger you put on to impress that special person on a night out - what a bassline! Now that tune is difficult to beat, but "Goin' South" does a good job at delivering a highly sensual, dubbed-out house rush, "Never Gonna Stop" flaps its funky disco wings at a steady pace, and the excellent "Oh Yeah" ties this absolutely stellar EP off with a west-coast, blue-eyed soul kind of swagger - for fans of Ned Doheny. TIP!!

Review: Having previously plied his trade on Tonbe's Disco Fruit label, re-editor Disco Funk Spinner transfers to Katakana Edits. Providing the ongoing series' 40th release, the Tel Aviv-based producer delivers a trio of tidy reworks. "Breakfast Jam" is bold and brassy, offering a chunky, hip-wigglin' version of a lesser-celebrated Michael Jackson workout complete with crashing drum breaks, scratching, clipped guitars, bold horns and impassioned, freestyle vocals. "What's Your Name" expertly cuts up David Bowie's "Fame", emphasizing the original's killer disco-funk groove along the way, while standout "Written Letter" extends a sweet soul gem, in the process turning it into a six minute club workout.

Review: Philipp Lauer's 2015 album Borndom was something of an eclectic, off-kilter affair, so it's nice to see Permanent Vacation taking a similarly open-minded approach with this expansive remix offering. It begins with a punchy, occasionally dreamy, all-analogue interpretation of "ByBy" from head-in-the-clouds alchemist Fort Romeau, and ends with a throbbing, Italo-goes-Balearic tweak of "Mausback" from Bearfunk regular Fabrizio Mammarella. In between, you'll find a rubbery, industrial funk-goes-Scandolearic re-make of "ESC" from Prins Thomas, a blissfully Balearic take on "Hump Acid" from Swiss digger Lexx, and a retro-futurist, synth-pop era proto-house version of "Alright" by The Working Elite. Oh, and another sunset-ripe rework by Tyler Pope of "Crewners".

Given the label's infamously high hit rate, it's little surprise to find that Disco Cuts Volume 1 is full of tried-and-tested dancefloor smashers - the kind of dub-flecked, handily compressed jams that work wonders in both disco and house sets. Highlights are naturally plentiful, from the dubby pulse of Deep&Disco's ace Chic rework "Feel The Rhythm", and the cheery '80s soul revivalism of Ron Basejam's gospel boogie cut "Someday", to the undulating grooves of Luvless' "Castles In The Sky" (you can guess the identity of the original source material) and head-nodding pulse of Only Children's chugging "Falling".

Review: "Sugar" lay unissued for many years, before finally seeing the light of day on BBE's 2003 set of previously unheard Roy Ayers' recordings, Virgin Ubiquity. It was later remixed by Dave Lee under his familiar Joey Negro pseudonym, and here gets the multi-track edit treatment from French scalpel specialist The Reflex. He typically does a good job of building energy and excitement throughout the vocal version's seven-minute duration, showcasing different instruments (vibraphone, horns, bass, guitars) and the track's alternating male and female vocals, in the manner of Tom Moulton or Walter Gibbons. The accompanying instrumental is tasty, too, but lacks a little of the vocal revision's soulful charm.

Highlights include his deliciously dreamy synth-disco rework of Kraak & Smaak's "How We Gonna Stop The Time", the accelerated swing/jazz minimal house of the "Dark Jazz Dub" by Nekta and his tough electro-funk remix of "Disco Life" by Basement Freaks. An impressive back catalogue indeed!

"Lovestruck" is a heavy, sticky 70s-style nugget tailor-made for the sunny weather and that sweet smell of freshly cut grass. There's a string of sexy remixes that follow: Patchworks adds to the percussion roll and the bumpiness of the groove, while Golf Channel's Africaine 808 dubs the shit out of the original by adding girth and menace to the low-ends, only to be stripped-down further by Voilaaa's own masterful reinterpretation.

There are a whopping six tracks on here, edging the release into mini-album territory. It's a typically slick affair with highlights including the eight-minute streetwise funk of "Going To See My Baby", the orchestrated funky house loops of "You Are & We Are" and the sequined Sylvester-esque boogie of "Doin It".

There's a subtle Osunlade vibe to this album, the American's first, and Rhodes be flaying on "Visions" as they vamp to a climax like a Bootsy Collins solo. It's all stripped back business of "NY So Hi" - get down to this! And for some quality, sustained loops check out "Thank You Les". "Up All Night" is a dubbed-out, cool-as, disco-tinged burner and there's a whole load to discover here in a debut album rich with the type of soul you can only get from the streets of the big apple.

Review: Editorial's latest EP comes from Lemon Mint, a Mexico City-based nu-disco/deep house fusionist who has previously released material on Midnight Riot and Hotbox. The four tracks here offer a neat summary of his trademark sound. "Spiral" is a dreamy, head-in-the-clouds chugger with just a whisper of acid to push things forwards, while "The Rubdown" effortlessly joins the dots between the sweaty, loop-heavy style of Tiger & Woods, and Lemon Mint's own deep and hypnotic explorations. Elsewhere, "Tornado" makes merry with sun-bright nu-disco chords, rolling beats and superb electric guitar riffs, while "Messages" sees the Mexican deliver a distinctive rework of a 1960s soul gem.

The real deal.

His latest release for the label, Feeling EP, sees him breathe new life into three old boogie bangers. 'Here Is The Funk", a sizzlingly funky clavinet attack, leads the charge with back up from the six minute flute n' guitar riff-ola of "Spirit Of The 70s" and rolling sequined closer "Feeling". The party goes on!

Review: It can be hard to predict what Fort Romeau will do next. While he's always excelled at making evocative, melancholic blends of vintage deep house, instrumental synth-pop and glistening electronica, he's prone to frequent stylistic shifts, as his eccentric 2015 outings on Cin Cin and Running Back neatly demonstrated. For this EP on Live At Robert Johnson, he's back to his deep and emotion-rich best, laying down a trio of tracks that emphasise mood, melody and simple beauty over the demands of the dancefloor. "Facing The Sea" is the most obvious club-friendly of the three - think chugging, hissing rhythms, winding melodies and Behaviour-era Pet Shop Boys chords - though it's the intensely beautiful "Seventyfour" that really stands out.
